1. All agreements, offers, order confirmations and deliveries are exclusively governed by the general terms and conditions of Oolaboo.
2. The applicability of any terms and conditions of the Purchaser is expressly excluded.
3. Derogations from these general terms and conditions are only binding if such has been agreed in writing and only apply for the agreement in question.
4. In case of nullity and/or nullification of a provision in these terms and conditions, the other provisions of the general terms and conditions will remain in effect.
5. If Oolaboo does not always require strict performance of these terms and conditions by the Purchaser for reasons of its own, Oolaboo does not lose the right to require this as and when necessary.
Article 3 – FORMATION OF THE AGREEMENT
1. All offers and mentioned sale prices of Oolaboo are without obligation and therefore do not bind Oolaboo, unless Oolaboo provides a written declaration showing the contrary.
2. An agreement is only formed at the moment Oolaboo confirms the Purchaser's Order in writing or at the moment Oolaboo performs the Agreement.
3. Oolaboo is entitled to refuse an Order by the Purchaser. The Purchaser will be informed by Oolaboo of refusal of an Order as soon as possible, but at least within 4 working days after receipt of the Order.
4. Offers or tenders do not automatically apply to future agreements.
Article 4 – PRICES
1. All prices mentioned by Oolaboo are exclusive of VAT, unless expressly agreed otherwise in writing.
2. The prices mentioned by Oolaboo are based on the cost factors applicable at the time of formation of the Agreement (including purchase prices, exchange rates, wages costs, transport costs and packaging costs). If these costs have increased after the offer due to a rise in prices, Oolaboo is entitled to change the prices accordingly.
3. The Purchaser has the right to dissolve the Agreement by means of a written declaration if there is a price increase of more than 10%. The dissolution must take place immediately after the price increase.
4. If a price increase is a result of a statutory or other government measure, Oolaboo is entitled to charge this on to the Purchaser, even if it has been agreed that the price is fixed, without this giving the Purchaser the right to dissolve the Agreement. The provisions of paragraph 3 do not apply in this case.
5. A compound quotation does not oblige Oolaboo to deliver part of the Goods included in the Agreement against a corresponding part of the price quoted.
Annex D-1 (Article 9.2)
Article 5 – PAYMENT
1. Payment must take place within 30 days after the invoice date. If payment takes place within 14 days after the invoice date, the Purchaser is entitled to deduct a two percent payment discount. If the payment term of 30 days is exceeded, without full payment having taken place, the Purchaser is in default by operation of law and a default interest equal to the applicable statutory interest is due.
2. Each payment serves in the first place to pay the interest and collection charges owed by the Purchaser and then to pay the outstanding claims in order of age, starting with the oldest outstanding claim.
3. Oolaboo retains the right to require a down payment, full advance payment or other security for payment from the Purchaser.
4.

3. Delivery takes place (by a transport company) at the address provided by the Purchaser.
4. Oolaboo reserves the right to make partial deliveries.
5. The risk of the products (for damage, loss, etc.) passes to the Purchaser upon delivery of the products by Oolaboo to the carrier, the transporter, or any other third party designated (by Oolaboo or the Purchaser) for the transport. If delivery of the products is delayed by the Purchaser, he is in default de jure from the moment Oolaboo has indicated that the products are ready for shipping. Oolaboo is then authorised to store the products for the account and risk of the Purchaser or to sell these to a third party. The Purchaser still owes the purchase price, plus the interests and costs (as compensation for damages), when applicable reduced by the net proceeds of the sale to this third party.
Article 7 – USE OF GOODS AND INTELLECTUAL AND INDUSTRIAL PROPERTY

and to be delivered, plus claims regarding work performed that relates to the delivery and claims as a result of attributable breach of the Purchaser in the performance of his obligations from Agreements concluded with Oolaboo.
3. Goods subject to retention of title may only be sold on and/or used and/or consumed by the Purchaser in the context of normal business operations.
4. As long as the Goods delivered are subject to retention of title, the Purchaser is not authorised to pledge and/or otherwise encumber the Goods and/or to give them into the actual control of a supplier.
5. If a third party alleges retention of title and/or security interests and/or seizes the Goods delivered by Oolaboo, the Purchaser is obliged to inform Oolaboo thereof in writing immediately. The Purchaser is also obliged to inform the third party that the Goods delivered by Oolaboo are subject to retention of title.
6. If a Purchaser buys similar goods from other suppliers, the Purchaser is obliged to store the Goods delivered by Oolaboo in such a way that these Goods can be identified as the property of Oolaboo. The Purchaser is not allowed to mix the Goods delivered by Oolaboo with similar goods that are or will be delivered by another supplier.
7. If Oolaboo wishes to exercise the retention of title indicated in this article, the Purchaser now unconditionally and irrevocably allows Oolaboo to enter all those places where its property is placed and to take those Goods back.

Article 9 – FORCE MAJEURE, SUSPENSION AND DISSOLUTION
1. Failures by Oolaboo in the performance of the Agreement cannot be attributed to it if
they are not due to its fault, or if they are not for its account pursuant to the law, the Agreement or according to common opinion.

3. If performance is delayed more than one month due to force majeure, either of the parties is authorised to dissolve the Agreement according to law or to suspend performance of the Agreement, to the exclusion of further rights, without Oolaboo being obliged to pay any compensation for damage suffered by the Purchaser or third parties.
4. If the Purchaser does not comply with any obligation ensuing from the Agreement concluded with Oolaboo or any related agreement, or does not do so sufficiently or in a timely manner, or if there is a reasonable fear that the Purchaser is not or will not be able to comply with his contractual obligations towards Oolaboo, as well as in cases of bankruptcy, suspension of payments, shutdown, liquidation or partial transfer – as security or otherwise – of the Purchaser's business, or in case of death or guardianship order of the Purchaser or (temporary) application of the statutory debt management scheme to the Purchaser, Oolaboo is entitled to suspend and/or dissolve performance of the Agreement in whole or in part, without judicial intervention, and without it being held to any compensation for damages towards the Purchaser.

4. Complaints by the Purchaser do not affect the payment obligations pursuant to the Agreement.
5. If the complaint is considered to be well-founded, the Purchaser has the option of replacing the Goods in question with new Goods for the account of Oolaboo, or refunding the invoice value of the Goods in whole or in part.

6. Return of the Goods delivered can only take place after prior approval by Oolaboo.
