The application of all other General Terms and Conditions, including those of the Client, is ruled out, along with GTCs of other points of sale offering the same Products. Pursuant to the legal provisions on industrial property rights, all agreements of a technical nature etc. drawn up by MED & SKIN are and remain exclusive property. These cannot be copied or used for any other purpose. The fact that MED & SKIN does not rely on any of the clauses of the present General Terms and Conditions at any time, shall not be considered as a waiver by MED & SKIN to enforce any of these clauses at a later date.
The Website is accessible and free of charge to any User who has access to the Internet. The User is responsible for his own computer equipment as well as for his internet access. All costs regarding the access to the Website remain the responsibility of the User/Client. The User will only access his/her account after identification using his/her Login and Password. The Customer is solely responsible for the use of his/her account and Password.
MED & SKIN shall provide all means to ensure 24h/24, 7 days/7 access, but cannot be held liable for any problems or dysfunction of the Website that could impede access to the Website and/or the various services offered by MED & SKIN. MED & SKIN will make every effort to resolve any problems as soon as possible.
The current offers on the Website are offered within the limits of the stocks available. The Products sold to consumers are of the "cosmetic" type. Products of the "medical" type are reserved for health professionals.
The quality of the Products is confirmed by MED & SKIN, who in any case does not take any responsibility in case of incorrect use of these Products by the Customer. The Client is requested to take note of the essential characteristics of the Product(s) he wishes to order before finalising the order. All prices are expressed in euros, inclusive of all taxes and exclusive of shipping costs, which will be charged in addition and will be specified to the Customer in advance when the order is finally validated. The prices of the Products may evolve according to MED & SKIN's commercial policy.
In any event, the Products shall be charged based on the actual prices on the Website at the time of final validation of the order. The price of each order, including delivery costs, shall be payable in cash at the time of ordering. If this cannot be met, the delivery will not be made and the sale will be considered cancelled at the initiative of the Customer.
The order process goes as follows:
- Choice of products and placement in shopping basket;
- Confirmation of contents in shopping basket;
- Identification on the Website if the Customer has not yet been identified;
- Choice of delivery method: The shipping and billing addresses first entered on the Website are stored as standard addresses in the address book of the Customer's account. They may be modified or deleted at any time. However, change or deletion of addresses relating to orders that have been confirmed and in the process of being handled, will not be taken into account. It is also the Customer's responsibility to provide a complete and correct delivery address. In case of non-compliance with this clause, the delivery cannot be accomplished and reshipment is not possible;
- Choice of payment method and acceptance of the GTC: In order to complete the order, the Customer must press the "Read the Conditions of Sale" button. The current GTC will be displayed. The Customer cannot continue with the order process if he/she does not tick the box "I have read and accept the Terms and Conditions of Sale". By ticking this box, the Client materialises his/her full acceptance of the current GTC as well as of the Special Terms and Conditions of Sale applicable to each order placement and displayed on the screen (name of the Product(s), price, weight, quantity, etc.);
- Confirmation of payment: The Customer can, at any time, obtain an overview of the Products he has selected by clicking on the icon " Basket " and edit them or delete part(s) of the content of the order displayed; The order will be considered final once the present Terms and Conditions have been accepted and payment has been made. The Customer will receive an email confirming the order. MED & SKIN agrees to honour orders received on the Website within the limits of the available stocks. In the absence of stock of one or more articles ordered, MED & SKIN agrees to inform the Customer within the shortest time possible and, if necessary, to make a refund, in the course of 14 days following the date on which the Customer has exercised his/her right of withdrawal. The customer's order will therefore be automatically cancelled. MED & SKIN retains title to the articles until full payment of the order, i.e. until receipt of payment of the order. MED & SKIN also reserves the right to cancel or refuse orders if there is a dispute with the Client in question regarding payment for a prior order or if, in its opinion, this could constitute any form of risk.
Purchases may be paid for by the Customer, either by Bancontact or by bank transfer. In the event of payment by bank transfer, the Customer's bank account will be debited when the order is dispatched. The payment is validated upon receipt of the additional information requested in case any additional verifications are required for payment. MED & SKIN reserves the right to verify the personal data communicated by the Customer and to take all measures deemed necessary to verify that the person whose bank account is debited is the person who placed the order to prevent fraudulent payments. This verification could take the form of a request for identity or residential details. The absence of any response from the Client to a request of this type within a period of 2 days following the request formulated by MED & SKIN shall automatically result in the cancellation of the order, without any possibility of subsequent complaint. The information relating to the order forms part of automated data processing. Failure to provide data relating to the order hampers the execution and analysis of the transaction. MED & SKIN shall also be completely free to proceed directly to cancel an order that involves one or more risks of bank card fraud.
The Client shall have the choice of having his/her order delivered or picked up at MED & SKIN's head office. In the event of delivery, the Customer may have his order delivered by BPOST or a courier. MED & SKIN agrees to deliver the items ordered and paid for by the Customer within a reasonable period of time, regardless of the chosen delivery method. The shipping costs will be charged to the Customer and specified at the time of final validation of the order. It is the Customer's own responsibility to check the contents of the order and the condition of the items delivered. Orders already opened or incomplete and/or damaged items may not be accepted by the Customer. Any discrepancies concerning the articles must be reported within 3 days of receipt.
In the event of manifest error regarding the price and/or characteristics of a Product put up for sale by MED & SKIN, the company is permitted to rectify this error.
