8.1 — RIGHT OF REVOCATION

If the Customer is a consumer within the meaning of Section 13 German Civil Code (Bürgerliches Gesetzbuch), s/he shall be entitled to a right of revocation in accordance with the statutory provisions, of which Kadine provides more detailed information below. Consumer in this sense (and in the sense of this Terms of use) is any natural person who buys the Products for a purpose which can predominantly not be attributed to her/his commercial or self-employed professional activity.

RIGHT OF REVOCATION
You have the right to revoke this contract within fourteen days without giving any reasons.
The revocation period shall be fourteen days from the day on which you or a third party named by you who is not the carrier of the order have taken possession of the last goods of the respective order.

In order to exercise your right of revocation, you must inform us (Address: KADINE BVBA Arenbergstraat 21, 2000 Antwerpen, Belgium, e-mail: service@essentiel-antwerp.com) of your decision to revoke this contract by means of a clear statement (e.g. a letter sent by post, fax or e-mail). You can use the attached model revocation form, which is, however, not mandatory.

In order to comply with the revocation period, it is sufficient that you send the notification of the exercise of the right of revocation before the expiry of the revocation period.

CONSEQUENCES OF THE REVOCATION
If you revoke this agreement, we will refund to you all payments we have received from you, including delivery charges (other than additional charges arising from your choice of a different method of delivery than the cheapest standard delivery offered by us), promptly and no later than fourteen days from the date on which we received notice of your revocation of this Agreement.

For this refund we will use the same means of payment as you used for the original transaction unless expressly agreed otherwise with you and in no event will you be charged for this refund. We may refuse a refund until we have received the goods back or until you have provided proof that you have returned the goods, whichever is earlier.

You shall return or deliver the goods to us immediately and in any event no later than fourteen days after the day on which you notify us of the revocation of this Agreement. This period shall be deemed to have been observed if you dispatch the goods before the expiry of the period of fourteen days. You shall bear the direct costs of returning the goods.

The Customer shall return the Product to Kadine without undue delay but at the latest fourteen (14) days after s/he gave notice to Kadine to return the product.

The Customer must return the Products in a new and unused condition, with all the original labels on and upon her/his costs.

In case the aforementioned conditions are fulfilled and Kadine has received the Products, Kadine will refund the Customer the full purchase price, excluding the transportation costs.

The full purchase price (excluding transportation costs) will be refunded within 14 calendar days of Kadine receiving the returned Products in good time, provided all conditions as specified above have been strictly complied with. Under no circumstances can the amount repaid ever exceed what the Customer actually paid.

For this refund Kadine will use the same means of payment as the Customer used for the original transaction unless expressly agreed otherwise and in no event will the Customer be charged for this refund less the sales vouchers or discounts used to pay for the order. The Customer will be refunded in accordance with the procedures agreed with the bank which issued the card.

The Customer shall be liable for any loss in value of the Products if such loss in value is due to having used the Products to an extent more than necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and the functioning of the Products.

Gift cards by e-mail are only sold on the Sites and delivered in an electronic form, to the specified email address. The Customer can also buy a physical gift card that will be sent by post to the designated address, free of charge.

The following additional terms and conditions apply to gift cards:

  • Gift cards can be redeemed in any Essentiel Antwerp store and in the online stores;
  • Gift cards remain valid indefinitely;
  • Gift cards can be redeemed in part or in its entirety. If the Customer does not use the full amount at once, it will receive a new gift card for the remaining amount;
  • The Customer can freely determine the value of the gift card it will be buying, as long as the amount is between €20 and €250.

Without prejudice to the Customer’s right of revocation mentioned under article 8, gift cards as well as the Product purchased through a gift card may not be exchanged for cash or any other payment, not even partially.

The code on the gift card can be used in the online order process on the Sites. After reviewing and confirming the order, the Customer shall enter the code printed on the gift card, the date of issue and the amount in the ‘gift cards’ field in the shopping cart during the check-out process. Value amounts used for purchases are deducted from the gift card balance.

If the total order is less than the value of the gift card, the Customer will receive a new gift card with the remaining balance.
If the total order exceeds the value of the gift card, the remaining balance must be paid through one of the available payment methods on the Sites.

Gift cards by e-mail will be e-mailed to the recipient after processing the order once the payment has been confirmed.

Kadine is not responsible if a gift card is stolen, resold, destroyed, lost or used without the Customer’s permission.



ARTICLE 10 — STATUTORY WARRANTY

In case of faulty or non-conforming goods, the Customer can contact Customer Service via the contact form which can be found under the ‘Contact’ option, or via the e-mail address service@essentiel-antwerp.com.

The Customer shall be entitled to the statutory warranty rights, unless otherwise regulated below.

Kadine shall provide warranty for defects of the Products at the Customer's choice either by eliminating the defect or delivering Products free of defects (so-called supplementary performance). Before asserting other warranty claims, Kadine shall be given reasonable opportunity and time to perform such supplementary performance. Kadine can refuse the type of supplementary performance chosen by the Customer if it is only possible with disproportionate costs.

If the supplementary performance fails, the Customer can reduce the price according to statutory provisions or withdraw from the contract according to her/his choice.

The right to withdrawal (Rücktritt) is excluded if the delivered Products deviate only insignificantly from the agreed quality or if the contractual or normal use of the Products is only insignificantly impaired.



ARTICLE 11 — SALES FOR PRIVATE PURPOSES

Providing the rights under article 10 and customer support is important to Kadine.

Therefore, all acts that may negatively affect Customer service are forbidden, including i.e. relabeling the Products, exporting them outside the European Union for commercial purposes.

The sale of Products is for private purposes only, and exclusively reserved to private individuals.

In no case may the Sites be used by professional Customers, meaning an entrepreneur according to Section 14 German Civil Code (Bürgerliche Gesetzbuch) regardless of the method of the marketing of the Products. The Products are offered for sale only for the purchase of usual amounts placed by average customers.

Kadine reserves the right to suspend or even refuse to fulfill an order with a Customer if there is a prima facie indication that the order is placed by a professional Customer. The costs incurred by Kadine for the verification of compliance with the prohibition of export for commercial purposes outside of the European Union will be borne by the Customer in case of infringement.



ARTICLE 12 — INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS

For the purpose of this provision, “Intellectual Property Rights” means the brand, and all rights in and to copyrights, trademarks, designs, know-how and registered domain names, including, but not limited to the domain name “essentiel” or “essentielantwerp” or “essentielanvers” or any translation and/or representation thereof or any related words, as well as all texts published on the Sites and databases containing data published on the Sites, the layout, look and feel, and graphic design of the Sites, the sales catalogue, photos, images, videos and music on the Sites which are subject to protection under copyrights, database rights, trademark rights, patent rights or any other form of intellectual property right.

The Customer is aware of the existence of these Intellectual Property Rights and commits to respect at all times such Intellectual Property Rights.

Kadine is and remains at all times the exclusive owner of such Intellectual Property Rights.

The Customer may therefore not copy, publish, imitate, exploit or use Kadine’s Intellectual Property Rights in any other way or in any form whatsoever without Kadine's prior written consent. Such consent must be obtained in writing, unless Kadine has granted a right to share certain aspects of the Intellectual Property Rights via social networks. In such case the grant of rights is limited to the specific elements of the Intellectual Property Rights identified by Kadine, to ways of use and social networks for which Kadine has made it possible to share them; in any case such grant of right is unexclusive only.

ARTICLE 13 — LIABILITY

Kadine shall be liable to the Customer for the breach of essential contractual obligations - these are obligations the breach of which endangers the achievement of the purpose of the contract or the fulfilment or which makes the proper execution of the contract possible in the first place and on the observance of which the customer may regularly rely - (so-called cardinal obligations). Insofar as the breach of the cardinal obligations was only slightly negligent and did not lead to an injury to life, body or health of the Customer, liability shall be limited in amount to the typical foreseeable damage.

Kadine shall also be liable to the Customer (i) in accordance with the provisions of the Product Liability Act, (ii) in cases of intent and gross negligence, (iii) for injury to life, body or health, (iv) if Kadine assumes a guarantee and (v) in all other cases of mandatory statutory liability, in each case in accordance with the statutory provisions.

Otherwise, claims for damages against Kadine - for whatever legal reason, in particular due to the breach of duties arising from the contractual obligation by Kadine, its legal representatives, employees or vicarious agents or from unlawful acts - are excluded.

Insofar as the liability of Kadine is limited or excluded according to the above provisions, this shall also apply to the personal liability of the legal representatives, employees and vicarious agents of Kadine.

A change in the burden of proof to the disadvantage of the Customer is not associated with the above provisions.



ARTICLE 14 — GOVERNING LAW AND JURISDICTION

Should any disputes arise between the Parties concerning the purchase of Products under these Terms of Use, the courts of Berlin, Germany will have exclusive jurisdiction to hear the case.

These Terms of Use and any claim or dispute related thereto are exclusively governed by German law.

8.2 — RIGHT OF RETURN

Between the fifteenth (15th) and the twenty-eighth (28th) day from the receipt of the Products ordered, the Customer can still return the Products to Kadine, with indication of the reason of return. For the avoidance of doubt, this return right shall not limit the revocation right or any warranty claims under applicable law.

The Customer will inform Kadine of its decision to return the Products by sending an email to service@essentiel-antwerp.com or via ‘My Account’ – ‘My Orders’ – ‘View Order’ on the Sites.

The Customer shall return the Product to Kadine without undue delay but at the latest fourteen (14) days after s/he gave notice to Kadine to return the product.

The Customer must return the Products in a new and unused condition, with all the original labels on and upon her/his costs.

In case the aforementioned conditions are fulfilled and Kadine has received the Products, Kadine will refund the Customer the full purchase price, excluding the transportation costs.

The full purchase price (excluding transportation costs) will be refunded within 14 calendar days of Kadine receiving the returned Products in good time, provided all conditions as specified above have been strictly complied with. Under no circumstances can the amount repaid ever exceed what the Customer actually paid.

For this refund Kadine will use the same means of payment as the Customer used for the original transaction unless expressly agreed otherwise and in no event will the Customer be charged for this refund less the sales vouchers or discounts used to pay for the order. The Customer will be refunded in accordance with the procedures agreed with the bank which issued the card.

The Customer shall be liable for any loss in value of the Products if such loss in value is due to having used the Products to an extent more than necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and the functioning of the Products.

Returns can only be accepted in the way described above, and returns to our physical stores will not be accepted. Returns must be sent to the address below:
Bleckmann Returns Dept BL
Courtensstraat 1
8791 Beveren-Leie
Belgium

ARTICLE 9 — GIFT CARD

Gift cards are sold both online on the Sites and in the Essentiel Antwerp physical stores.

Gift cards by e-mail are only sold on the Sites and delivered in an electronic form, to the specified email address. The Customer can also buy a physical gift card that will be sent by post to the designated address, free of charge.

The following additional terms and conditions apply to gift cards:

  • Gift cards can be redeemed in any Essentiel Antwerp store and in the online stores;
  • Gift cards remain valid indefinitely;
  • Gift cards can be redeemed in part or in its entirety. If the Customer does not use the full amount at once, it will receive a new gift card for the remaining amount;
  • The Customer can freely determine the value of the gift card it will be buying, as long as the amount is between €20 and €250.

Without prejudice to the Customer’s right of revocation mentioned under article 8, gift cards as well as the Product purchased through a gift card may not be exchanged for cash or any other payment, not even partially.

The code on the gift card can be used in the online order process on the Sites. After reviewing and confirming the order, the Customer shall enter the code printed on the gift card, the date of issue and the amount in the ‘gift cards’ field in the shopping cart during the check-out process. Value amounts used for purchases are deducted from the gift card balance.

If the total order is less than the value of the gift card, the Customer will receive a new gift card with the remaining balance.
If the total order exceeds the value of the gift card, the remaining balance must be paid through one of the available payment methods on the Sites.

Gift cards by e-mail will be e-mailed to the recipient after processing the order once the payment has been confirmed. Kadine is not liable for the delivery of a gift card by e-mail to a non-existent or wrong e-mail address. It is the sole responsibility of the Customer that the input of information (such as the e-mail address of the recipient) is correct.

Kadine is not responsible if a gift card is stolen, resold, destroyed, lost or used without the Customer’s permission.



ARTICLE 10 — STATUTORY WARRANTY

In case of faulty or non-conforming goods, the Customer can contact Customer Service via the contact form which can be found under the ‘Contact’ option, or via the e-mail address service@essentiel-antwerp.com.

The Customer shall be entitled to the statutory warranty rights, unless otherwise regulated below.

Kadine shall provide warranty for defects of the Products at the Customer's choice either by eliminating the defect or delivering Products free of defects (so-called supplementary performance). Before asserting other warranty claims, Kadine shall be given reasonable opportunity and time to perform such supplementary performance. Kadine can refuse the type of supplementary performance chosen by the Customer if it is only possible with disproportionate costs.

If the supplementary performance fails, the Customer can reduce the price according to statutory provisions or withdraw from the contract according to her/his choice.

The right to withdrawal (Rücktritt) is excluded if the delivered Products deviate only insignificantly from the agreed quality or if the contractual or normal use of the Products is only insignificantly impaired.



ARTICLE 11 — SALES FOR PRIVATE PURPOSES

Providing the rights under article 10 and customer support is important to Kadine.

Therefore, all acts that may negatively affect Customer service are forbidden, including i.e. relabeling the Products, exporting them outside the European Union for commercial purposes.

The sale of Products is for private purposes only, and exclusively reserved to private individuals.

In no case may the Sites be used by professional Customers, meaning an entrepreneur according to Section 14 German Civil Code (Bürgerliche Gesetzbuch) regardless of the method of the marketing of the Products. The Products are offered for sale only for the purchase of usual amounts placed by average customers.

Kadine reserves the right to suspend or even refuse to fulfill an order with a Customer if there is a prima facie indication that the order is placed by a professional Customer. The costs incurred by Kadine for the verification of compliance with the prohibition of export for commercial purposes outside of the European Union will be borne by the Customer in case of infringement.



ARTICLE 12 — INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS

For the purpose of this provision, “Intellectual Property Rights” means the brand, and all rights in and to copyrights, trademarks, designs, know-how and registered domain names, including, but not limited to the domain name “essentiel” or “essentielantwerp” or “essentielanvers” or any translation and/or representation thereof or any related words, as well as all texts published on the Sites and databases containing data published on the Sites, the layout, look and feel, and graphic design of the Sites, the sales catalogue, photos, images, videos and music on the Sites which are subject to protection under copyrights, database rights, trademark rights, patent rights or any other form of intellectual property right.

The Customer is aware of the existence of these Intellectual Property Rights and commits to respect at all times such Intellectual Property Rights.

Kadine is and remains at all times the exclusive owner of such Intellectual Property Rights.

The Customer may therefore not copy, publish, imitate, exploit or use Kadine’s Intellectual Property Rights in any other way or in any form whatsoever without Kadine's prior written consent. Such consent must be obtained in writing, unless Kadine has granted a right to share certain aspects of the Intellectual Property Rights via social networks. In such case the grant of rights is limited to the specific elements of the Intellectual Property Rights identified by Kadine, to ways of use and social networks for which Kadine has made it possible to share them; in any case such grant of right is unexclusive only.



ARTICLE 13 — LIABILITY

Kadine shall be liable to the Customer for the breach of essential contractual obligations - these are obligations the breach of which endangers the achievement of the purpose of the contract or the fulfilment or which makes the proper execution of the contract possible in the first place and on the observance of which the customer may regularly rely - (so-called cardinal obligations). Insofar as the breach of the cardinal obligations was only slightly negligent and did not lead to an injury to life, body or health of the Customer, liability shall be limited in amount to the typical foreseeable damage.

Kadine shall also be liable to the Customer (i) in accordance with the provisions of the Product Liability Act, (ii) in cases of intent and gross negligence, (iii) for injury to life, body or health, (iv) if Kadine assumes a guarantee and (v) in all other cases of mandatory statutory liability, in each case in accordance with the statutory provisions.

Otherwise, claims for damages against Kadine - for whatever legal reason, in particular due to the breach of duties arising from the contractual obligation by Kadine, its legal representatives, employees or vicarious agents or from unlawful acts - are excluded.

Insofar as the liability of Kadine is limited or excluded according to the above provisions, this shall also apply to the personal liability of the legal representatives, employees and vicarious agents of Kadine.

A change in the burden of proof to the disadvantage of the Customer is not associated with the above provisions.



ARTICLE 14 — GOVERNING LAW AND JURISDICTION

Should any disputes arise between the Parties concerning the purchase of Products under these Terms of Use, the courts of Berlin, Germany will have exclusive jurisdiction to hear the case.

These Terms of Use and any claim or dispute related thereto are exclusively governed by German law.
