TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SALE The following conditions of product sale apply to all sales contracts between Consouling Sounds and the customer. Deviations from these terms and conditions can only be achieved through either a written document signed by Consouling Sounds and the customer, or through a verified digital exchange between a representative of Consouling Sounds and the customer. Contractual terms and conditions exclude any terms or conditions mentioned in documents of the customer completely, even if those documents are more recent. Consouling Sounds reserves the right to change the terms at any time and / or supplement for future orders without making the customer personally aware of this and without which the latter can claim compensation.
1. Identity of Consouling Sounds • Mike Keirsbilck / Consouling Sounds (hereafter referred to as “Consouling Sounds”) • Baudelostraat 11 • 9000 Gent • Belgium • VAT: BE0544.424.475 RPR Gent
2. Reservation and payment in store The customer has the option to reserve a product. The customer will be notified when this product can be collected in the Consouling Store shop, Baudelostraat 11, 9000 Ghent, Belgium. Only then, after inspection of the product and contact with the representative of the store present, does the customer decide whether or not the products will be purchased. In case of purchase, the customer pays at the cash register of the Consouling Store. Only at that time will a sale and purchase agreement be concluded. For that reason, in this case there is no question of distance selling: as a consequence, there is no right of withdrawal (see article 10). The customer can only pay the full purchase price at the time of collection in the Consouling Store store; each full or partial payment in advance or deposit (both offline and online) is excluded. Consouling Sounds reserves the right to refuse orders or reservations if: – There is a serious suspicion of bad faith or intent of fraud; – There are repeated abuses of the right of withdrawal; – There is suspicion of repeated abuse or fraud by a client; – Faulty, suspect or incorrect customer information is specified; – It is determined that a person has repeatedly reported fictitious personal data; – There is an abnormal amount of a quantity ordered – possibly in several purchase orders – It is established beyond a purely personal use; – It can be assumed that orders were made for resale; – There is force majeure.
The reserved products remain at the disposal of the customer in the Consouling Store for 30 days from the day of the reservation. If the customer does not collect or pay the reserved goods, the reservation will be canceled automatically after 30 days.
3 Delivery or pick up of an order
3.1 Delivery The delivery of the ordered product(s) to the customer – after the receipt of the payment – is made to an address chosen by the customer. The customer has a 30 days right of withdrawal (see article 10). Should the delivery of the ordered product(s) be delayed, Consouling Sounds reserves the right to alter the sales price. This sales price will be changed in case of changes to purchase prices, taxes, duties or levies due by Consouling Sounds in the period of time between the date of acceptance of the order and the date of the scheduled delivery. Attention! Delivery orders include an obligation of payment before any product(s) can be shipped and delivered.
3.2 Local pick up When the customer orders an item from the shop on www.consouling.be and chooses to withdraw this at the Consouling Store in Belgium (option ‘Local pick-up’), it will be available in the store soon after, depending on the stock and/or availability. The customer has a 14 days right of withdrawal (see paragraph 10). If the product(s) are not collected by the client after repeated electronic messages or e-mails by Consouling Sounds representatives, Consouling Sounds is entitled, within the period of 30 days, to cancel the order or agreement as dissolved. Attention! Local pick-up orders include an obligation of payment before any product(s) can be made available for pick-up.
4 Price Unless stated otherwise in the contract, prices include VAT and other possible taxes. All prices are in Euro/€. Items bought from the Consouling Sounds webshop are paid by the customer before delivery. There will be no delivery or order until the full purchase price has been paid. This price, including any delivery charges, must therefore be paid in full before delivery. Only then is the contract of “distance selling” effectuated. Promotions and special offers are only valid as long as the stock last. Consouling Sounds can not be held liable for the consequences of typographical or graphical errors in the prices or articles, for abnormalities in images or for interim changes in design.
Consouling Sounds reserves the right to modify orders, unilaterally changing the appropriated price if it appears that the price indication and/or product description of a product would be incorrectly labeled, due to a technical fault or human shortcoming. Payment for online orders can be made via PayPal or bank transfer payment options, as offered by Mollie Payments and as provided on the website. Consouling Sounds only accepts cash payment during local pick-up at the store; not at the moment of delivery. For cash payments, paper gift vouchers can be used in accordance with their validity from the date of issuance. If the amount of the order exceeds the amount of the gift card or gift card, the customer must pay the remaining amount. If the amount of the order is less than the amount of the gift card, the customer will keep the balance in the form of a deposit that is indicated on the gift card. Attention! The validity date of the gift card remains the same and will under no circumstance be extended. An exchange in cash is also not possible.
5 Terms and conditions The mode of delivery is indicated in a confirmation e-mail to the customer. The ordered product(s) will be delivered depending on the available stock.

Consouling Sounds will determine if the damage is eligible for compensation and how compensation will happen. Consouling Sounds reserves the right to make a proposal to the client on this method of compensation.
If the customer is not present at the time of delivery of a product(s), a message is left in the mailbox by the local post office , so the client can, after delivering proof of identity, pick up the product within 14 calendar days at the local post office.

6 Delivery Delivery dates are not an essential element of the sales agreement. Unless another date for delivery has been agreed upon, for example in the case of pre-order or out-of-stock order, Consouling Sounds will ensure the delivery of the product(s) not later than 30 days after the conclusion of the contract. Should Consouling Sounds not be able to comply with this deadline, a new time of delivery, appropriate considering specified circumstances, will be agreed upon with the customer.
