The GTC express all the obligations of the parties, to the exclusion of the Customer's own conditions. The Customer is deemed to accept them without reservation, failing which his order will not be validated. By placing an order, the Client acknowledges having read these GTC and explicitly accepts the rights and obligations they contain.

Exceptions to the provisions of the GTC may be made in certain cases, provided such exceptions have been agreed in writing. Such exceptions may consist of amending, adding or deleting the provisions to which they relate and will not affect the application of the other provisions of the GTC.

In any case, these additional costs are explicitly mentioned on the order form, i.e. before you place the order. Please read this carefully.

Charlies Candles BV reserves the right to change the prices of the goods, in particular when a legal price-determining factor gives rise to this.

In this case, the customer has the right to choose whether to cancel the purchase or confirm it at the corrected price or condition. If the Customer does not confirm the purchase within one week, Charlies Candles BV will assume that the Customer has decided not to make a purchase. If the Customer has specific questions about sizes, colour, availability, delivery period or delivery method, for example, we request that the Customer contact our customer service department first. The offer is valid while stocks last and can be adjusted or withdrawn by Charlies Candles BV at any time. Charlies Candles BV cannot be held liable for the unavailability of a product or service.

Our quotations are not binding on us. The prices quoted may be subject to fluctuations or changes in the prices of raw materials, currencies, wages and taxes.

With regard to the price, we commit ourselves, if necessary taking into account the aforementioned fluctuations, only for the duration specified in our offer. If no period is indicated, a maximum period of 14 days applies.

You must be of age to place an order. If you are still a minor, you may not place this order. This must be done by your parents or your legal representative.

Charlies Candles BV is entitled to refuse an order in writing, as a result of a serious shortcoming on the part of the Customer with regard to the order or any other order or agreement in which the Customer is involved.

An order, including those recorded by our agents or representatives, is only binding if it is expressly accepted by us in writing and/or confirmed by e-mail at the e-mail address provided by the Customer. The order is only valid if 50 percent of the advance payment has been made.

Art.5 Online purchases

The Customer has the choice between the following payment methods:

- Bancontact, Mister Cash: Thanks to 3-D Secure, customers can pay safely online via Bancontact, now Mister Cash. The customer can complete the payment based on the card number, expiry date and your digipass. This is done via an SSL-secured server which sends credit card data securely.

In the event of non-payment of all or part of the price, the outstanding amount shall, ipso jure and without further notice, be increased by an annual interest of 12% and a fixed compensation of 10%, with a minimum of €50 and a maximum of €150. Art.8

Delivery

The products are delivered as described on the invoice or the order form. The Customer must immediately check the products delivered.

Since our order processing system cannot take all these criteria into account, it is possible that the delivery cost price is higher or lower than that shown on the order confirmation. You will then be informed within seven working days. These delivery costs are also due if the order cannot be delivered or if an order is partially returned.

The delivery is made to the consumer's home. Unless otherwise agreed, the goods will be delivered within 7 days after receipt of the order at the address given by the customer when ordering. The delivery dates given by us are for information only and cannot be understood as binding. Failure to meet the delivery date cannot give rise to any compensation on the part of Charlies Candles BV as the delivery dates are provided for information purposes only and without any obligation. If this is not complied with, the Customer is required to compensate the Seller for all damage, including waiting times, storage costs and costs for maintaining the item.

Delays in deliveries do not entitle the Customer to revoke the order or claim damages. The company shall not be liable in the event of a delay by the delivery service (postal service or courier service).

The products listed by the Seller are only offered to the extent that the products are in stock. If they are not in stock, the Vendor shall inform the Customer as soon as possible. The Vendor then offers the Customer the choice between a refund, an amended delivery or a postponed delivery.
