Beaumont accepts payments via iDeal, PayPal, Klarna, Visa, Mastercard, Bancontact/Mister Cash, SOFORT Banking, Cartes Bancaires, Visa Electron, American Express and Maestro.
8. Privacy of the buyer

- Beaumont shall not disclose the buyer's personal data to any third parties other than parties involved in the payment and shipment of the products.
9. Right of withdrawal

This reflection period commences on the day after receipt of the product by the consumer or a representative appointed in advance by the consumer and announced to the operator;
- If the buyer wishes to exercise the right of withdrawal, the buyer may only unpack or use the products to the extent necessary to assess whether he or she wishes to keep the product. During this period, the buyer shall handle the products and packaging materials with care. The buyer shall return the products with all delivered accessories and, as far as possible, in the original packaging;
- Keep proof of shipment until your return has been processed by Beaumont.

10. Costs in case of withdrawal
- If the consumer makes use of his or her right of withdrawal, at most the costs of returning the goods shall be borne by the consumer;
- If the consumer has paid an amount, the operator shall refund this amount as soon as possible, but at the latest within 14 days after withdrawal. However, this is subject to the condition that the product has already been received back by the merchant or conclusive proof of complete return can be provided. Reimbursement shall be made via the same payment method used by the consumer, unless the consumer expressly consents to another payment method;
- In the event of damage to the product due to careless handling by the consumer himself/herself, the consumer is liable for any reduction in value of the product.
11. Defective products
- In case the products do not meet the reasonable requirements of the products, the buyer must immediately report this to Beaumont, but in no case later than 14 (fourteen) calendar days after delivery of the products. If the buyer fails to comply with the provisions of this paragraph, any right of reimbursement and/or any other possible claim for damages shall lapse;
- The fact that a product is defective shall under no circumstances entitle the buyer to suspend payment or to set it off against the invoice amount to be paid for any other products delivered to the buyer.
- In all cases, liability of Beaumont arises as a result of attributable failure in the execution of the agreement only if the buyer gives Beaumont a legally valid written notice of default with due observance of a reasonable recovery period and if Beaumont continues to fail imputably in the fulfilment of its obligations after that period. The notice of default must contain as complete and detailed a description of the shortcoming as possible to enable Beaumont to respond adequately;
- Beaumont is only liable for losses directly resulting from foreseeable and avoidable shortcomings for which it is responsible and which are directly related to the production and delivery of the products;
- Any obligation to pay damages, on whatever grounds, shall at all times be limited to the price of the product;
- If and insofar as compensation or payment under the conditions of the previous paragraph, for whatever reason, is not applicable, any obligation (legal or otherwise) of Beaumont to pay compensation shall be limited to the value of the order in question.
The risk of - among other things - loss or theft of or damage to the products passes to the buyer at the moment when the buyer, or someone acting on the buyer's behalf, actually takes possession of the products.
14. Force majeure
- If Beaumont fails in any obligation towards the buyer, such failure cannot be charged to Beaumont in case of force majeure as referred to in Article 6:75 of the Dutch Civil Code;
- Force majeure includes (but is explicitly not limited to) fire, disturbances, strikes organised by a recognised association and acts or failure to act by governments, including municipalities (such as import restrictions);
- All provisions of this paragraph apply mutatis mutandis to the force majeure of Beaumont's suppliers and/or any third parties involved in the production and delivery of the products. All cases of failure and/or late and/or defective execution by the parties mentioned in this provision shall be considered as force majeure of Beaumont.
15. Intellectual property rights
- All intellectual property rights relating to the products, as well as all other documents and materials supplied by Beaumont, are exclusively owned by Beaumont. The buyer does not acquire any (user) rights and/or other powers.;
- The buyer declares not to infringe in any way on the intellectual property rights of Beaumont or to invalidate these rights and/or endanger the ownership of these rights.
16. Third-party links
- The general terms and conditions of the buyer, regardless of the name and form, are expressly excluded, unless expressly agreed otherwise in writing;
- These general terms and conditions shall only become effective if the parties agree to them in writing;
- The invalidity of any provision of these general terms and conditions shall not result in the invalidity of the entire general terms and conditions.

18. Complaints, questions and remarks

- All disputes between the parties arising from or otherwise related to agreements or these general terms and conditions shall be resolved in mutual consultation as much as possible.
