Article 2. Offers/agreements
All offers by Next, Steiner B.V. are without obligation, and Next, Steiner B.V. expressly reserves the right to amend the prices, in particular when such is necessary on the basis of (legal) regulations.
An agreement will be enforced only after acceptance of your order by Next, Steiner B.V.. Next, Steiner B.V. is entitled to decline orders or make them subject to certain conditions, unless expressly stated otherwise. If an order is not accepted, Next, Steiner B.V. will notify the customer thereof within five (5) working days of receipt of the order.

Payment must take place online or in advance, unless otherwise has been agreed in writing, but no later than eight (8) days after the invoice or order date.

In the event that the payment term is exceeded, you will be in default from the date when payment should have taken place, and from that date you will owe a default interest of 1% of the outstanding amount per month or part thereof. If payment takes place after a demand for payment by Steiner Beheer Maastricht B.V., you will owe the sum of twenty Euro (€ 20) for administrative costs, and if Steiner Beheer Maastricht B.V. engages a collection agency with regard to the claim, you will also owe the collection charges, which will be at least fifteen percent (15%) of the outstanding amount, without prejudice to Steiner Beheer Maastricht B.V.'s power to demand the actually incurred extrajudicial collection charges instead.
If you are in default with regard to any payment, Next, Steiner B.V. will be entitled to suspend (the fulfilment of) the relevant agreement and related agreements or to dissolve it/them.
If the prices of the products and services offered rise in the period between the order and its fulfilment, you will be entitled to cancel the order or dissolve the agreement within ten (10) days of notification by Next, Steiner B.V. of the price increase.
Article 4. Delivery
The delivery times stated by Next, Steiner B.V.. are indicative only. If any delivery term is exceeded, this will not entitle you to compensation or give you the right to cancel the order or dissolve the agreement, unless the delivery term has been exceeded to such an extent that it cannot be expected from you in fairness that you uphold the agreement. In that case you will be entitled to cancel the order or dissolve the agreement insofar as such is necessary.
Orders can be cancelled only after written confirmation from Next, Steiner B.V.. In the event that the order is cancelled by the customer, the dispatch costs will be recovered from the customer if the package has already been sent to the customer and is not collected by him/her.

The products are delivered at the place where and at the time when the products are ready for dispatch to you.

You must inspect on delivery whether the products respond to the agreement. If this is not the case, you must notify Next, Steiner B.V. thereof in writing, justifying your reasons, as soon as possible, and in any case no later than within three (3) days of delivery, at least after identification thereof was possible in fairness.
If it has been demonstrated that the products do not respond to the agreement, Next, Steiner B.V. will have the choice to either replace the relevant products by new products against their return, or to repay the invoice value excluding any dispatch costs.
