good reasons not to enter into the Agreement, it is entitled to refuse an order or request or to  attach special conditions to the execution thereof. Ophon will then notify the Customer of this  decision within a reasonable period of time.

8.1 During the reflection period, the Consumer must handle the product and packaging with  care. He will only unpack or use the product in such a way as is necessary to determine the  nature, characteristics and functioning of the product. The basic principle here is that the  Consumer may handle and inspect the product as he would be allowed to do in a shop. 

8.2 If the Consumer goes further than described in paragraph 1 of this article, he is liable for  the depreciation of the product. 

Article 9 • Exercise of the right of withdrawal by the Consumer and costs thereof 

9.1 The Consumer can exercise the Right of Withdrawal by informing Ophon in writing by  post, fax or e-mail in clear terms that he / she is withdrawing from the Agreement. 

9.2 The Consumer may use the attached Model withdrawal form, as downloadable here (and  which is also attached to these terms and conditions), but is not obliged to do so. The Model  withdrawal form will be sent by Ophon together with the Offer or an order confirmation, as  well as upon delivery, together with the product.

9.3 The termination has taken place within the specified period if the notice to that effect has  been sent by the Consumer before the Withdrawal Period has expired. 

9.4 As soon as possible, but within 14 days from the day after this notification, the Consumer  will return the product or hand it over to Ophon or its authorized representative, unless Ophon  has indicated that it will collect the product itself. 

9.5 The Consumer returns the product with all accessories supplied, as much as possible in its  original condition and packaging, and in accordance with the reasonable and clear instructions  provided by Ophon. 

9.6 The Consumer bears the risk and the burden of proof for the correct and timely exercise of  the Right of Withdrawal. 

9.7 The Consumer bears the direct costs of returning the product with a Distance Agreement,  except: 

i. if Ophon has not reported that the Consumer must bear these costs; or 

ii. if Ophon indicates that it will bear the costs itself, Ophon will state the costs of return with  the Offer or the order confirmation, insofar as the products cannot be sent by regular mail. 

9.8 If the Consumer withdraws after he has explicitly requested Ophon to start performing a  Service during the Withdrawal Period, the Consumer will pay for the Service provided until  the moment of withdrawal. 

9.9 The Consumer does not bear any costs for the performance of Services if: 

Ophon has not provided the Consumer with the legally required information about the Right  of Withdrawal, the cost reimbursement in the event of withdrawal or the Model withdrawal  form; or the Consumer has not explicitly requested to start the performance of the Service. 

9.10 Any Additional Agreements will also be dissolved by operation of law upon revocation.

Article 10 • Ophon’s obligations in the event of withdrawal 

10.1 If Ophon makes the withdrawal by the Consumer possible electronically via the site,  Ophon will immediately confirm a confirmation of receipt by email after receipt.

10.2 Ophon will reimburse all payments received from the Consumer, including delivery  costs, no later than 14 days after the day on which he cancels the revocation. Unless Ophon  has offered to collect the relevant products itself, Ophon may wait with the refund until the  products have been received by him, unless the Consumer demonstrates that he has returned  the relevant products. The latter can be done by submitting or sending, for example, a proper  dispatch or delivery receipt to Ophon. 

10.3 No (administration) costs will be charged for the reimbursement. Ophon will use the  same payment method as used by the Consumer to fulfill the Distance Agreement, unless  otherwise agreed in writing. The Consumer is obliged to immediately report inaccuracies or  changes in payment details provided or stated to Ophon. 

10.4 Ophon is not obliged to repay the additional costs if the Consumer has explicitly opted  for a different (more expensive) method of return than the least expensive method offered by  Ophon, such as post or regular parcel service. 

Article 11 • Exclusion of right of withdrawal 

11.1 For products manufactured in accordance with the Consumer’s specifications, which are  not prefabricated and which are manufactured on the basis of an individual choice or decision  of the Consumer, or which are clearly intended for a specific person (“custom products”),  Ophon can exclude the Right of Withdrawal. For custom-made products we base ourselves on  the dimensions and specifications you have specified, unless we measure them ourselves or  have them measured, we only supply custom-made products at the applicable price.  Revocation of ordered custom-made products is therefore not possible. Ophon only makes use  of the aforementioned right of exclusion if this was clearly stated by him in the Offer, at least  in time for the conclusion of the agreement. 

11.2 In the following cases, Ophon can exclude the Right of Withdrawal for Services, such as  the installation of a product, after having started the performance of the Service. Ophon will  only be allowed to do this if the performance has started with the explicit prior consent of the  Consumer and the Consumer has also stated that he will lose his Right of Withdrawal as soon  as Ophon has started the Service. If the Service has not yet been fully performed upon  withdrawal, the Consumer will owe a proportional part of the price of the Service. 

Article 12 • The price

12.1 The prices as stated in an Offer, order confirmation, quotation or on the website are,  unless stated otherwise, in euros and including VAT. 

12.2 Transport costs and in case of sale abroad, other levies, excise duties, and / or surcharges  are not included in this and are stated separately in the Offer and / or the order confirmation  mention. 

12.3. Prices will not be increased within the term of the Offer or after the order confirmation,  unless legal measures make this necessary or if the manufacturer implements interim price  increases. 

12.4 All prices on the site are subject to printing and typing errors. No liability is accepted for  the consequences of printing and typesetting errors. 

Article 13 • Compliance and guarantee and extrajudicial dissolution 

13.1 Ophon guarantees that the products comply with the Agreement and have the properties  that the Customer could expect on the basis of the Agreement, including in any case  properties that are required for normal use of the products and the presence of which the  Customer did not have to doubt when entering into the Agreement. Only if this has been  expressly agreed, Ophon also guarantees that the product is suitable for other than normal use. 

13.2 Insofar as, in the exceptional case, a product does not comply with the Agreement and  this information is attributable to Ophon and results in a shortcoming, the Customer is entitled  to delivery of the missing, or repair, replacement or dissolution in accordance with, among  other things, Title 1 Section 3 of Book 7 of the Civil Code. Ophon will then bear the costs of  repair resp. replacement, incl. freight and call-out costs; If the defect can be properly repaired,  Ophon does not need to replace the product. 

13.2 Because the products of Ophon are regularly made of high-quality eco-neutral (glued)  wood and as a rule they are (treated) natural products, marginal deviations in color, structure,  etc. may occur. The color of the material can also change after use and over time (for example  due to exposure to natural light). The Customer takes note of and accepts this information as 

not being an aspect on the basis of which the possibility of normal use or the conformity of  the product is lacking. The right to repair, replacement and compensation, or dissolution of  the Agreement (not meant the timely exercise of the right of withdrawal by a Consumer) is  therefore limited and excluded by the intrinsic characteristic (s) of the product described  

above. This is, however, insofar as the deviations are objectively acceptable from a technical  point of view and as fitting within the description “marginal”. 

13.3 Ophon may, without notice of default, dissolve the Agreement in whole or in part out of  court in the event of bankruptcy, suspension of payments or statutory debt rescheduling of the  Customer. 

Article 14 • Retention of title, delivery and implementation 

14.1 Ophon remains the owner of the products sold until the Customer has paid the price (and  any additional costs) in full. The Customer is obliged to treat the products with care. He may  not give the products to third parties or give them as collateral, lend them, or 

removed from the space where they were delivered, until the amount due has been paid. The  place of delivery is the address that the Customer has provided to Ophon. 

14.2 The delivery time is the agreed time within which the work must be performed or the  products must be delivered. For a Consumer purchase, a delivery time of a maximum of 30  days after the conclusion of the agreement, unless otherwise agreed. 

14.3. In the event that the delivery time is not met, Ophon will be granted an extra period by  the Customer to still deliver. The extra term is a maximum of one month but never longer  than the original delivery time. 

14.4 If the extra term is exceeded, the Client is entitled to dissolve the Agreement  extrajudicially and / or to request compensation. After dissolution in accordance with the  previous paragraph, Ophon will immediately refund the amount paid by the Consumer. 

14.5 If the delivery time is exceeded, Ophon is not liable for any form of consequential  damage in an Agreement with a business Customer. 

14.6 In the case of an Agreement with a Consumer, Ophon must compensate such damage  that is related to the exceeding and that can be attributed to Ophon in view of the nature of the 

liability and the nature of the damage. The Consumer must limit the damage as much as  possible. 

14.7 The risk of damage and / or loss of products rests with Ophon until the moment of  delivery to the Customer or to a third party designated in advance and notified to Ophon,  unless expressly agreed otherwise. 

Article 15 • Payment 

15.1 Unless otherwise agreed, the Client must pay the price owed (and where appropriate  including the costs of transport) in full when the Agreement is concluded. If payment on  account has been agreed, the account amount must be paid by the Client within 14 days of  receipt thereof. 

15.2 Before full payment has been made, the Customer cannot assert any rights whatsoever  with regard to the execution of the relevant order, Agreement or Service (s) and Ophon is  therefore not obliged to deliver products. 

15.3 If the Customer does not fulfill his payment obligation (s) on time, after Ophon has  informed him of the late payment and Ophon has granted the Customer a period of 14 days to  still fulfill his payment obligations, after failure to fulfill his payment obligations. of payment  within this 14-day period, the statutory interest is due on the amount owed and the  entrepreneur is entitled to charge the extrajudicial collection costs incurred by him in  accordance with the Decree on compensation for extrajudicial collection costs of 27 March  2012. Ophon is then also entitled to dissolve the Agreement extrajudicially and to claim  compensation. If the Consumer fails to pay the price even after the 14-day reminder period  has expired, the Agreement will be deemed to have been withdrawn between Ophon and the  Consumer within the meaning of art. 7 of the general terms and conditions and then Ophon is  not (any longer) bound under the relevant Agreement with the Consumer. 

4. Without the express and written permission of Ophon, the Client is not permitted to apply  its payment obligations to set-off or suspension. 

Article 16 • Liability 

16.1 Any liability of Ophon is limited to the price (including VAT) that has been charged by  Ophon on the basis of the agreement, which is the basis for the creation of the liability, and 

that has been paid by the Customer on time, with a maximum of € 15,000.00 (fifteen  thousand euros) per event or related event. 

16.2 Ophon is not liable for damage caused by incorrect use of or careless handling of the  products by the Customer. Before use and installation, always read the instructions on the  packaging and / or consult our website. 

16.3 The Client is solely responsible for the structural and structural suitability of the location,  building, space and / or (onder) floors where the Customer will place the product, this also  applies if the installation of the product is carried out by an Ophon technician. The technician  has only been hired to professionally build the product at the location that the Customer  designates and does not advise him, nor is he trained to advise the Customer on whether and  where the product can best be placed. Since a large number of LP records can be stored and  displayed in the Ophon product, and the Customer determines how many LP records are  stored in the Product, this is a considerable (together) depending on the material of the  product and the number of LP records stored therein. weight. Ophon therefore excludes any  liability for damage that may result from the above-described choices of the Customer. Ophon  will always state the weight in the description of the product in the Offer or the order  confirmation (and upon delivery thereof). 

16.4 The limitations of liability included in Articles 16.1 to 16.3 do not apply insofar as  Ophon’s liability for damage is the result of intent or deliberate recklessness on the part of  Ophon. 

Article 17 • Privacy Policy

19.2. Ophon’s obligations are suspended during force majeure.

20.2 Complaints that cannot be dealt with by telephone, as is the case with complaints about  the performance of the Agreement or the quality of a product, must also be submitted to  Ophon fully and clearly described. This should preferably be done in writing by post (address: 

Tweede Constantijn Huygensstraat 62 (1), 1054 CV Amsterdam) or by email to and in any case timely.
