  5. The goods, purchase & delivery
  6. 1 The description of the goods, the quantity, quality, price, VAT, insurance, environmental tax and delivery costs are described on the website, the catalogue, order page or order form. Illustrations, descriptions and other information relating to certain goods, with the exception of prices, VAT, shipping costs and environmental tax, are indicative and serve as a guideline only. Obvious mistakes or errors in the offer and/or the agreement are not binding on MDK.
  7. 2 MDK can unilaterally change the agreement, whereby the customer has the option to dissolve the agreement within 14 days after MDK has informed the customer of this change.

  9. 4 MDK strives to deliver all ordered goods within the agreed delivery time. Goods and services are always subject to availability. If your order or part of your order cannot be delivered, MDK will notify you. If a product or order is (partially) unavailable, MDK can supply a replacement product of equal or higher quality, or deliver your order in part. If you do not wish to keep the replacement product, you can use the right of withdrawal as described in Article 4.
  10. 5 If the product ordered by you is delivered damaged or defective, or if it is an incorrect product, you can inform customer service by e-mail or telephone within a period of 14 days after receipt of the goods. Customer service will then arrange for a replacement or equivalent product.
  11. 6 MDK will do its utmost to ensure that your order is shipped at the time you request. If MDK is unable to ship an order at the time requested by you, that order will be shipped at a time as close as reasonably possible to the desired time; this can be earlier or later than the desired time.

  1. 7 MDK will deliver the goods to the address you specify in your order. It is important that this address is correct. Be precise about where you want the goods to be left in the unlikely event that you are not at home when MDK delivers. MDK accepts no liability, to the fullest extent permitted by law, for loss or damage to the goods if they have been delivered in accordance with your delivery instructions.
  2. 8 Life the goods should be planned as soon as possible after receipt. We recommend that you open and take care of the delivered package immediately after receipt unless you decide that you want to make use of your right of withdrawal as described in article 4.
  3. 9 You always have the option, without any additional surcharges, until the day before the packing process of the order starts, to make changes or to cancel the order. You must contact customer service for this. This is only possible if we receive your instructions before your package is packed.
  4. Right of withdrawal
  5. 1 You have the right to cancel an order up to 14 days after the day you received the ordered goods. If you want to make use of this right of withdrawal, you will find the (digital) form with which you can do this on www.beautanicshop/withdrawal form under general terms and conditions. Do not return the goods to MDK before you have received a request to do so from MDK (MDK always guarantees the quality of the goods and can usually not reuse them due to the nature of the goods). With this, MDK wants to ensure that it does not generate an unnecessary burden on the environment. If you return the goods, the goods must be sent in the original packaging to the address stated on the invoice. MDK will refund your payment including the environmental tax and shipping costs.
  6. 2 The customer bears the direct costs of returning the products.
  7. 3 During the period that the customer can make use of the right of withdrawal, the customer will handle the product and the packaging with care. He will only unpack or use the product to the extent necessary to determine the nature, characteristics and functioning of the product. The basic principle here is that the customer may only handle and inspect the product as he would be allowed to do in a shop.

  9. Prices & payment

  11. 2 MDK can, within legal frameworks, inform itself whether the customer can meet its payment obligations, as well as about all those facts and factors that are important for a responsible conclusion of the agreement (at a distance). If, on the basis of this investigation, MDK has good reasons not to enter into the agreement, it is entitled to refuse an order or request with reasons or to attach special conditions to the execution.
  12. 3 The special conditions as stated in 5.2 include the obligation to pay (partial) advance or payment of outstanding invoices that have not been paid.
  13. 4 All prices are exclusive of shipping costs and include VAT at the current rate. MDK guarantees that there will be no increase in the stated prices of products in its online shop or catalog or orders received during the validity period of these offers. The prices in the catalogues, special offers or online shop may (mutually) differ. In the event that the VAT rates are increased during the term of a catalog or price list, MDK reserves the right to charge such additional amounts to the customer, whereby the customer has the option to dissolve the agreement within 14 days after MDK notifies the customer of this change.
