Deviations or additions to these conditions shall only be valid if accepted in writing and in advance by LensOnline.

Order:


Orders are placed online on the website www.LensOnline.be, by e-mail or by phone. The buyer will receive a confirmation and an overview of his order by e-mail, as well as an overview of the general terms and conditions. All quotes issued by LensOnline on the website are free of commitment. They only become binding when the order is confirmed on the website and after receiving an order confirmation for the order placed by e-mail from LensOnline.
 

Delivery:


For shipments within the Benelux LensOnline charges an amount of €3.90 per shipment. For shipments outside the Benelux LensOnline charges an amount of €6.00 per shipment. For the delivery of maintenance products outside Belgium an additional €20 is charged. Deliveries are made only after the payment is received. Most products can be delivered from stock. The indicated delivery period is only indicative and not binding. Delays in the delivery can never give rise to a compensation or dissolution of the agreement by the buyer. Neither does the buyer have the right to suspend any of his obligations vis-à-vis LensOnline in that case. In case of force majeure LensOnline either has the choice to cancel the agreement without intervention of the court, or to suspend the time of delivery until the time when the force majeure ceases to exist, without the buyer being entitled to claim any compensation from LensOnline. If the buyer does not meet any one of his obligations vis-à-vis LensOnline pursuant to the agreement, LensOnline will be entitled to suspend any further deliveries and services. The buyer will receive an invoice upon delivery.
 

Price:


The prices of the LensOnline products are mentioned on the website and are guaranteed by LensOnline, except in cases of force majeure. Prices are expressed in euro and are inclusive of VAT 21%. Delivery costs are not included. Please refer to article 3 for shipment costs.
 

Lens subscription


LensOnline also offers a subscription formula for the purchase of products. The price for the products ordered under the subscription shall be communicated to the buyer prior to concluding the contract. Upon acceptance of this subscription formula, the buyer will be sent the ordered products every three months, with a first delivery a few days after the acceptance of this formula. The first delivery can only take place when the customer has signed the mandate. As soon as the order amount has been transfered, the order will be shipped. Please take 8 business day into account before shipping.

The payment of the goods takes place on a monthly basis, whereby the buyer's account will be debited monthly at the rate of one third of the amount payable for the delivery which takes place every three months. To this end the buyer must confirm a SEPA direct debit mandate in accordance with the payment methods mentioned on the website. When accepting the subscription the buyer agrees to this method and the current terms and conditions. 

When supplier prices rise, LensOnline reserves the right to apply these increases at any time to any deliveries, or partial deliveries, that have not yet taken place. Any price increase will be notified at least 7 days before the delivery by e-mail, in which case the buyer is entitled to terminate the subscription before the next delivery, provided all delivered goods have been paid. If the buyer fails to terminate the subscription before the next order, the subscription will be continued at the adjusted rates. 

Without prejudice to the provisions in relation to the renunciation right in accordance with the General Terms and Conditions, the Subscription is entered into for an indefinite period of time until LensOnline is no longer able to deliver the products to which the Subscription refers. The agreement can be cancelled subject to a notice period of 14 days and provided all delivered products have been paid.

The buyer is entitled to suspend the subscription for a period of maximum 3 months pro year. The suspension starts with the next delivery.
All notifications concerning the subscription,, a.o. the termination, the request for a suspension, changing of products, have to be made by registered mail or by e-mail on the abonnement@lensonline.be address.

As an exception to article 4 no delivery costs will be charged for deliveries in the Benelux. For deliveries outside the Benelux, the usual costs mentioned in article 4 will apply.
Any specifications passed on by the buyer will be taken into account as of the next delivery, provided that these changes were passed on in time, i.e. at the latest 7 days before the next delivery.

In case of non payment or late payment of the invoice or partial payment thereof, whether or not through an ongoing SEPA direct debit mandate, a fixed administrative reminder costs of € 10 shall be charged without prior notice.

In addition, in case of non payment or late payment of the invoice or partial payment thereof, whether or not through an ongoing SEPA direct debit mandate, an indemnification of 10% with a minimum of €10 shall be applied without notice and by mere action of the law. An interest of 1% per month will be charged on the resulting increased amount. Furthermore, in case of late payment, the buyer will also be responsible for all collection and recovery costs stemming from it.

In so far as no explicit deviations are made in the present article, the other provisions of the general conditions also apply to the subscription formula.
