5.3. In the case of non-compliance with the agreed payment conditions, all outstanding invoices and/or debts immediately become payable and Goesting in Gezondheid is entitled, without any notice or legal intervention, to suspend further deliveries and/or operations, or to consider the agreement as dissolved without prejudice to its right to be compensated.

6.2. If Goesting in Gezondheid has already partially met its obligations at the commencement of the force majeure, or can only meet its obligations partially, Goesting in Gezondheid is entitled to invoice what has already been carried out separately and the client is obligated to pay this invoice, as if it were a separate agreement.

Article 8 Right of renunciation
In the context of distance marketing to consumers who are within the scope of application of the Law of 6 April 2010, the consumer is entitled to notify the seller that he declines the purchase, without penalty, and without giving a reason, within fourteen calendar days from the day following the delivery.
If the consumer relies on this possibility, he has to return the goods and packaging at his own risk and costs, in an original, undamaged and unused state to Goesting in Gezondheid, Bautschoot 5 box 2, 9160 Lokeren, Belgium. Goods that were specifically designed for the purchaser or that can spoil quickly, cannot be returned, and in this case the seller cannot invoke the right of renunciation.
Goesting in Gezondheid is entitled to refuse returns when it suspects that the articles have already been used, or that damage has occurred through the negligence of someone other than the seller or supplier of the article.
Article 9 Transfer of rights
The customer shall only become the owner of, or receive the right to use, the delivered services and products from the moment he has met all his obligations towards Goesting in Gezondheid. Goesting in Gezondheid maintains full ownership of the delivered goods until full payment of the prices, compensations and costs charged. This reservation of ownership is an essential part of the agreement, closed between the parties, without which Goesting in Gezondheid would not have contracted.
Goesting in Gezondheid explicitly reserves the right to reclaim unpaid deliveries, wherever they may be, without any remedy or objection by the client. Resale of the unpaid goods by the customer also leads to the legal transfer of the customer’s debt to Goesting in Gezondheid to the third party, so that Goesting in Gezondheid has a direct right to claim with regard to that that third party.
During this period of reservation of ownership, the customer takes on the obligations and responsibility of guardian for the delivered goods and thus commits himself to guard these and to ensure them against all causes of damage, destruction, theft, fire, loss, etc.
Notwithstanding the foreseen retention of property, the risk regarding the goods transfers to the customer from the moment of delivery.
Article 10 Personal data
By ordering via the website of Goesting in Gezondheid, the Purchaser explicitly allows his/her personal data to be processed and used for purposes such as the administration of the customer database, the management of the orders, deliveries and invoices, monitoring of solvency, marketing and advertising. The processing for marketing purposes is only executed if the customer explicitly agrees to this during the purchasing process. Goesting in Gezondheid will not transfer the data to third parties. The Purchaser has the right to see and correct all data. The Purchaser is always entitled to object to the processing of the data for direct marketing purposes. For more information, the Purchaser is invited to contact the public register kept by the Commission for the Protection of Privacy in Brussels.
