Article 2 : Scope and Conditions

2.1. These General Terms and Conditions define the rights and obligations of the parties in the context of the sale of products via the website www.littledudes.be, hereinafter "the Website" between "the Vendor" and "the Buyer". The buyer is any natural person who enters into a distance contract with the Vendor in order to acquire or use the Vendor's products for purposes that exclude any professional use (hereinafter "the Buyer").

2.2. The delivery address provided by the Buyer must be in Europe. If the Buyer indicates a delivery address in another country, the Vendor reserves the right to reject the order.

2.3. In order to place an order, the Buyer must be at least 18 years old. Otherwise, the Vendor is entitled to request the prior consent of the parents or guardian or legal representative of the Buyer in order to place an order. If the Vendor notices that the order was made by a minor, the Vendor reserves the right to reject the order.

2.4. By using the Website and/or placing an order on it, the Buyer accepts these General Terms and Conditions and acknowledges that all rights and obligations mentioned on the Site are applicable to him.

2.5. These General Terms and Conditions can be consulted directly on the Website. At the buyer's request, they can also be sent to him by email.

Article 3 : Offer and Origin of the Contracts

3.1. If an offer is valid for a limited time or is subject to certain conditions, this is always expressly mentioned in the offer.

3.2. The offer contains a complete and precise description of the products offered as well as the ordering process. The description is sufficiently detailed to allow the Buyer to properly evaluate the offer. If the Vendor makes use of illustrations, they are a faithful representation of the offered products. Each product sheet is based on information provided by the manufacturer or supplier of the product. However, this information is not exhaustive. If the Vendor is clearly mistaken, he is not required to deliver the product or service described incorrectly.

3.3. The products offered for sale are those that appear on the website within the limits of available stocks. The Vendor makes every reasonable effort to display the availability of products in real time on the website, but cannot be held responsible if a product was no longer available to fulfil the order made by the Buyer. In case of unavailability of one of the ordered products, the Buyer will be informed and will have the possibility to modify his order or cancel it, in which case he will be refunded the amount of his order, if it has already been paid.

3.4. The buyer's order will be complete and the contract will take effect immediately after the Vendor confirms the order by email and receives the buyer's approval of the transaction from the Buyer’s credit card or debit card issuer. The Vendor is in no way responsible for delays in delivery and/or non-delivery of the order if these delays are due to the refusal of payment by the issuer of the Buyer's debit card. No order is accepted or processed without valid payment in the name of the (registered) cardholder.

3.5. The Buyer may place his order on the website 24/7. To buy a product, the Buyer must add it to the basket. The buyer will then be asked to fill in a form containing personal information and billing information and select the delivery address. The Vendor cannot be held responsible for the consequences of the incorrect communication of billing or delivery data. In such cases, all costs incurred for the reshipment will be borne by the Buyer.

At the end of the ordering process, the Buyer will receive a summary of the order and he will be asked to accept these General Terms and Conditions of Sale and confirm payment. After completing these steps, the purchase will be final.

The Vendor will confirm each order by sending an email to the address indicated by the Buyer when ordering. In this email it will be mentioned, the date of the order, the summary and price of the ordered product, increased by delivery costs.

3.6. The Buyer may at any time follow his order by consulting the "my account" section on the website.


Article 4 : Right of withdrawal

4.1. For any purchase of products or services, the Buyer has a period of 14 calendar days from the delivery or, in the case of services, the conclusion of the contract to withdraw the said contract. Meanwhile, the Buyer may return his order without penalty and without providing any reason. Within 14 days after the return of the order or termination of the contract, the entire purchase price will be fully refunded using the same payment method used by the buyer in the original transaction. The purchase price will be reduced by the amount of the voucher(s) or discounts that occurred at the time of order.

4.2. The return costs are free for Belgium and at the expense of the Buyer for other European countries. The risks related to the shipment are the responsibility of the Buyer. In case of loss or damaged package, the Vendor is not held responsible. It is therefore strongly recommended to return the item(s) in registered mail or in post tracking.

4.3. The Vendor may defer the refund until the recovery of the goods, or until the consumer has provided proof of shipment of the goods, the date chosen being that of the first of these facts.

4.4. During the withdrawal period, it is imperative to handle the goods and packaging with care, not to unpack the product or use it except to the extent necessary to be able to assess whether the Buyer wishes to keep the goods or not. If the Buyer makes use of his right of withdrawal, he must return the goods accompanied by all the delivered accessories and – as far as possible – in its original condition and packaging, according to the instructions below.

4.5. The Buyer may return the order to the following address:

LITTLE DUDES

1000 BRUSSELS

BELGIUM

4.6. To perform his right of withdrawal in a correct and prompt manner, the Buyer must notify the Vendor to the following address info@littledudes.be by means of an unambiguous declaration expressly mentioning the Buyer's contact details, the returned products and the order number, or by means of the model form reproduced at the end of these terms.


Article 5 : Price

5.1. Except in the case of a valid offer for a defined period, the Vendor reserves the right to modify the selling price at any time; however, the products purchased will be invoiced at the price appearing on the website at the time of the order.

5.2. The prices indicated are in euros and include all taxes, duties and services. There will therefore never be any surprises for the Buyer. However, the Vendor may decide to charge the Buyer the delivery costs. In that case, the Vendor will notify the Buyer before the confirmation of the order (see Article 8).

Article 6 : Payment

6.1. Payment is limited to the payment methods offered on our Website: with Visa or Mastercard, by Bancontact, on PayPal with Maestro, with Apple Pay and Shop Pay.

6.2. To guarantee a secure online payment and guarantee the security of the Buyer's personal data, the transaction data is encrypted with SSL technology sent on the net.

7.3. The Vendor guarantees that the product is, at the time of its original purchase, free of any defect in material, design and manufacture.

The Vendor guarantees that the products put up for sale on the website do not have visible or invisible defects, which would make the use of the product impossible or dangerous.

The Vendor is bound to consumers established in a country of the European Union of the legal guarantee of conformity of 2 years mentioned in articles 1649bis to 1649octies of the Belgian Civil Code. The consumer acknowledges that the replacement of the defective product may prove impossible for certain specific products made in limited quantities, in which case he will only be able to claim an adequate reduction in price.

The Vendor is also bound by the legal guarantee in the case of hidden defects, under the conditions provided for in articles 1641 to 1649 of the Civil Code, provided however that the customer makes use of this guarantee at the latest within one month following the discovery of the possible hidden defect.

Where applicable, any specific warranty valid for a certain product will be clearly specified in the product sheet of the latter, to the exclusion of any other more extensive warranty.

In any case, are excluded from the warranty the products whose damage results from:

  • The negligence of the customer (breakage, splits, etc.)

  • An attempted repair by the customer;

  • Misuse by the customer (fraying, use of inadequate cleaning products, etc.);

  • A case of force majeure (loss, theft, etc.);
