5. SERVICE AVAILABILITY

We offer delivery of our products worldwide. If you are located in a non-EU member state and wish to order products from us, you may do so by contacting our sales team via email at sales@zerazi.com. Please note that delivery of products to non-EU member states may require additional fees. Our sales team will inform you of any additional delivery costs upon contact.

6. PLACING AN ORDER

The information and details displayed on the website and in these Terms and Conditions constitute an invitation to treat and not an offer for sale. No contract for the sale of products will exist between you and Zerazi BV until we have accepted your order, regardless of whether payment has been processed. To place an order, you must follow the online purchase process and click "Order and Pay" to submit your order. Once we receive your order, we will send you an email acknowledging receipt of your order ("Order Confirmation"). Your order is an offer to purchase one or more products from us, subject to our acceptance. We reserve the right to reject any order or limit the quantity of products ordered. If we accept your order, we will send you a Shipment Confirmation email to confirm that the product has been dispatched and an electronic ticket with your order details attached to it ("E-ticket"). The contract between you and us ("Contract") for the purchase of a product will only be formed when we send the Shipment Confirmation email. Only the products confirmed in the Shipment Confirmation will be covered by the Contract. We reserve the right not to supply you with any other ordered products that have not been confirmed in a separate Shipment Confirmation.

7. PRODUCT AVAILABILITY

All orders of products are subject to product availability. Therefore, in the event of any delivery issues or if the products are no longer in stock, we reserve the right to offer you, in advance, substitute products of equal or higher quality and value which you can then order. If you do not wish to order such substitute products, we will refund you the amount you have already paid.

8. PRICING AND PAYMENT

It is important to note that the prices on the website may be subject to change without notice. However, if you have already placed an order at the time when the price changes, the price you paid will remain the same. Any additional fees or charges that may apply will be clearly indicated at the time of purchase.

In the event that we are unable to obtain authorization for payment, we reserve the right to cancel your order. We also reserve the right to refuse to process any transaction or to cancel any order if we suspect fraud or unauthorized or illegal activity.

All payments made through our website are secure and encrypted. However, we cannot be held liable for any damages or losses incurred as a result of unauthorized access to your personal or financial information.

If you have any questions regarding pricing or payment, please contact our customer service team for assistance.

9. DELIVERY

Delivery times will vary depending on the availability of the products and the delivery destination. We strive to process orders promptly and aim to dispatch orders on the next working day following receipt of the order. However, delays may arise due to unforeseen circumstances or high order volumes. With regard to digital gift cards, these will be delivered to you on the date you indicate when placing the order. If we are unable to meet the delivery date for any reason, we will notify you and provide you with the option to either continue with a new delivery date or cancel your order with a full refund. Delivery will be deemed complete when you or a third party designated by you receives the products at the delivery address, as evidenced by a signed acknowledgement of receipt. For digital gift cards, delivery will be deemed complete on the date of sending to the email address provided by you, in accordance with the gift card's terms and conditions.

10. INABILITY TO DELIVER

We commit to delivering your products to the agreed delivery address, but if we are unable to do so, we will attempt to find a safe and secure place to leave your parcel. If we cannot locate a safe and secure place, your products will be returned to our warehouse, and we will notify you in writing of the available options for a new delivery. If you are unable to be present at the agreed delivery time, please contact us to arrange a mutually convenient delivery date. If your order is not delivered within 30 days from the availability of your order at the delivery location due to reasons beyond our control, we will consider this as an intent to cancel the Contract. Upon termination of the Contract, we will fully refund the price paid for the products, excluding delivery costs, processing fees amounting to 15%, and any additional cost related to the chosen delivery method other than the cheapest standard delivery offered, as soon as possible, but no later than 14 days from the date of termination. This clause does not apply to digital gift cards, as their delivery is subject to the gift card's terms of use and Clause 9 above.

11. RISK AND TITLE

Title and risk in the Products shall pass to you upon delivery, but you shall bear all risks associated with the Products from that time. Ownership of the Products will remain with us until we have received full payment of the amount owed for the Products, including delivery costs. This means that ownership will transfer to you on the date of delivery (as stated in clause 9) if the Products have been paid for or on the date of payment if this occurs after delivery.

12. PRICE AND PAYMENT

The price of each product will be as stated on the website at the time of purchase, with the exception of obvious errors. If an error is found in the price of a product you have ordered, we will inform you as soon as possible and give you the option to reconfirm your order at the correct price or cancel it. The prices listed on the website include VAT, but delivery costs are not included and will be added to the total. Prices may change at any time, but any changes will not affect orders for which we have already sent a shipment confirmation, unless otherwise stated. Payment for your purchase can be made using the payment methods available on our website. You can also use a Zerazi gift card or voucher to pay for your purchase, in whole or in part. Your payment details will be encrypted to reduce the risk of unauthorized usage. We will make a pre-authorization request on your card to ensure you have sufficient funds to complete the transaction, and the total amount will be debited once the products leave our warehouse. If you pay with PayPal or a Zerazi gift card or voucher, you will be debited when the Order Confirmation is issued. Clicking on "Order and Pay" confirms that the bank card belongs to you or that you are the rightful owner of the gift card or voucher. Credit cards are subject to validation checks and authorization from the card issuer. If payment authorization is not received, we will not be responsible for any delays or failures in product delivery.

13. BUYING GOODS AS A GUEST

The functionality of buying goods as a guest is also available on the web page. Under this type of purchase, only such data which are essential to process your order will be requested from you. Upon completion of the purchase process, you will be offered the possibility of registering as a user or continue as a non-registered user.

14. VALUE ADDED TAX

Value added tax (VAT) applies to all purchases made through the website, unless the delivery is to customers in the Canary Islands, Ceuta, and Melilla. The VAT rate applied will be that of the Member State where the items are delivered, in accordance with Title V, Chapter I of Directive 2006/112/EC. In certain Member States of the European Union, the recipient of the delivery may be responsible for paying VAT if they are a taxable person for VAT purposes. If this applies, we will not charge VAT and the customer will be responsible for paying the VAT directly in accordance with Article 194 of the aforementioned Directive. Orders to be delivered to the Canary Islands, Ceuta, and Melilla are exempt from VAT but are subject to applicable taxes and customs duties.

15. Legal Right of Withdrawal

As a consumer, you have the right to withdraw from the contract within a period of 15 days without providing any reason. The withdrawal period expires 15 days after the date on which you, or a third party designated by you (other than the carrier), take possession of the items, or in the case of multiple items forming part of the same order but delivered separately, 15 days after the date on which you, or a third party designated by you (other than the carrier), take possession of the last delivered item. To exercise your right of withdrawal, you must inform Zerazi BV of your decision through an unequivocal statement to the following address: Zerazi BV, Noordlaan 152, 9230, Wetteren, Belgium, or by email: support@zerazi.com, or even by filling out the contact form provided on our website. To comply with the withdrawal period, it is sufficient that you inform us of your decision to exercise your right of withdrawal before the expiration of this period.

16. EFFECTS OF WITHDRAWAL

If you exercise your right of withdrawal, we will refund all payments received from you, including the original delivery costs to the original delivery place. However, the delivery of the returned goods to Zerazi BV will be at your expense. We will make the refund as soon as possible, and in any case, within 14 days from the date we receive notification of your decision to cancel. We will refund the money via the same payment method that you used to pay, unless you expressly request a different method. You will not incur any fees in relation to this refund.

Please note that we may defer the refund until we have received the returned items or proof of their return, whichever is the earliest. Therefore, we recommend that you return the items as soon as possible, and in any case, within 14 days from the date you notified us of your decision to cancel the Contract.

To return the items, please send them to the following address: Zerazi BV, Noordlaan 152, 9230, Wetteren, Belgium, together with a print-out of the E-ticket attached to the Shipment Confirmation. You will bear the direct costs of returning the items. You are responsible for the items until they are returned to us. Please make sure that the items are securely packaged and appropriately protected.

You will only be liable for any diminished value of the items resulting from handling other than what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics, and functioning of the items. We reserve the right to refuse the refund or to deduct from the refund any amount corresponding to such diminished value of the items.

17. CONTRACTUAL RIGHT OF CANCELLATION

In addition to the legal right of withdrawal, as described in clause 18, you have the right to return any item to us (except those mentioned in clause 20) within 15 days of receiving the shipment confirmation. Gift card returns are subject to the conditions described in the gift card terms and conditions. If you return items under your contractual right of cancellation but outside the legal cancellation period, you will only be reimbursed for the purchase price of the items. You will not be reimbursed for shipping costs and processing fees amounting to 15% of the transaction value. You will be responsible for all costs incurred for the return of items. If you exercise your right of cancellation, as provided in clause 18, but after the expiration of your legal right, you must return the items to us within 30 days of receiving the shipment confirmation.

18. GENERAL PROVISIONS

You cannot cancel the Contract for personalized items or goods. Your right to cancel the Contract only applies to items returned in their original condition. No refund will be granted if the item (i) has been used after being opened, (ii) is not in the same condition as received, or (iii) is damaged. You are responsible for taking care of the item(s) in your possession and returning them in their original packaging, along with any instructions and documents sent with the items.

To exercise your right to cancel the Contract, you may complete the relevant form on our website or return the item directly to us at the address stated in clause 18 above, along with a print-out of the E-ticket attached to the Shipment Confirmation. You must return the item(s) as soon as possible, and you will bear the costs of returning them.

Once we have examined the returned item, we will inform you whether you are entitled to a refund for the monies paid. Delivery costs will only be reimbursed if you exercise your right to cancel within the statutory period and return all items. We will refund the amount via the same payment method you used to make the purchase, unless you provide a gift receipt for the return. In this case, we will refund you by means of a Zerazi gift card. We will make the refund as soon as possible, which should be within 14 days from the date of your notification. However, we may defer the refund until we have received the returned items or proof of their return, whichever is earlier.

If you have any questions, please contact us by filling in the relevant form on our website or by sending us an email at 'support@zerazi.com'.

19. RETURN OF FAULTY ITEMS

If you receive a faulty item, you should immediately contact Zerazi by emailing 'support@zerazi.com'. You should provide details of the item, the defect, and any applicable photos. You must also return the item to Zerazi along with a printout of the E-ticket. Zerazi will examine the item and determine whether you are entitled to a replacement or refund. If you are entitled to a replacement or refund, Zerazi will refund or exchange the item as soon as possible, within 14 days of their email confirmation. If the defect or damage is proven, Zerazi will fully refund the price of the item, including delivery costs and expenses incurred in returning the item. The refund will be made via the same payment method used to make the purchase unless you present a gift receipt for the return, in which case the refund will be made by means of a Zerazi gift card. This clause does not affect your statutory rights.

20. RIGHT OF WITHDRAWAL AND RETURN FOR ORDERS FROM ABROAD 

If you have ordered products from outside Belgium from another EU member state via this website, the clauses 18, 19, and 20 mentioned above will apply. However, please note that we are not obligated to pay shipping costs to destinations other than the original delivery address or the return costs from destinations outside the EU, except for clause 21, to which this clause 22 does not apply.

21. LIABILITY AND EXCLUSIONS

Our liability for any product purchased through our website is limited to the purchase price of said product unless expressly stated otherwise elsewhere in these Terms and Conditions. However, this limitation of liability does not apply to any liability we may have for: (1) death or personal injury caused by our negligence; (2) fraud or wilful misrepresentation; or (3) any matter for which it would be illegal or unlawful for us to exclude or limit, or attempt to exclude or limit, our liability.

We will not be liable, insofar as provided under law and there being no provision to the contrary in these Terms and Conditions, for the following losses, regardless of their origin: (1) loss of revenue or sales; (2) operating losses; (3) loss of profits or contracts; (4) loss of anticipated savings; (5) loss of data; and (6) loss of working or management time.

Due to the open nature of this website and the potential for errors in the storage and transmission of digital information, we do not warrant the accuracy and security of information transmitted to or obtained from this website unless expressly stated otherwise. All documents, descriptions, and information relating to the products appearing on this website are provided "as is," without any explicit or implicit warranty, unless so warranted under law.

However, where you are contracting as a customer, we will deliver the products in accordance with the contractual provisions and will be liable to you in the event of any lack of conformity noted at the time of delivery. Products will be considered compliant with the contractual provisions if they (1) conform to the description provided by us and possess the features stated on the website; (2) are suitable for the purposes for which products of their type are generally designed; and (3) meet the quality and performance criteria which are normal for products of the same type and which can be reasonably expected.

All warranties are excluded, except for those warranties to the benefit of consumers and users who cannot be legally deprived of such warranties (in particular, the legal warranty of conformity provided in Articles 1649bis to 1649octies of the Belgian Civil Code).

The products that we sell, in particular hand-crafted products, often have characteristics of the natural materials that are used in their manufacture. Such characteristics may contain variations in their grain, textures, knots, or color, which cannot under any circumstances be considered defects or faults. On the contrary, you should expect and appreciate such inconsistencies. We only choose the highest quality products, but natural characteristics are inevitable and should be accepted as forming an intrinsic part thereof.

This clause does not affect your statutory rights as a consumer or user, or your right to cancel the Contract.

22. INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY

28. EVENTS OUTSIDE OUR CONTROL

29. WAIVER

We reserve the right to enforce strict compliance with all of your contractual obligations and with these Terms and Conditions at any time.

Any waiver by us of your obligations under the Contract or these Terms and Conditions must be acknowledged as such by us in writing and will not be effective unless we have notified you in accordance with the "Notices" clause above.

30. SEVERABILITY

If any provision of these Terms and Conditions or of a Contract is found by a competent authority to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable, that provision shall be deemed to be severed from the remainder of the provisions, which shall remain valid and enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by law.
