Article 3: Offer of products
The data shown on the "Poster Editor" are taken from external databases and are therefore not under the control of Map Posters. Consequently, any errors that may exist in external databases are not binding on Map Posters.
Despite the fact that the online catalog and the e-commerce websites are compiled with the greatest possible care, it is possible that the information provided may be incomplete, contain material errors, or not be up to date. Obvious mistakes or errors in the offer do not bind Map Posters. As far as the correctness and completeness of the information offered are concerned, Map Posters is only bound to a best efforts obligation. Map Posters is in no way liable for obvious material errors, typographical errors or misprints.
All images of products, shown on any page including but not limited to the "Poster Editor", are an indication of the end result. Map Posters can not guarantee the colors shown on a computer monitor are accurate and exactly the same as the printed end product.
Map Posters reserves the right to refuse the execution of an order or to revise it if the execution does not lead to the desired result. In this case, Map Posters will always contact the Customer without this resulting in any additional costs for the Customer.
The Customer can cancel his or her order on condition that the production of the order has not yet started. To this end, the Customer must contact Map Posters directly via the channels provided/mentioned on the website on which the Customer placed its order.
The details will be posted on the website.
Article 4: Online purchases
The Map Posters websites offer the Customer the opportunity to order products from the offer (see Article 3: Offer of products) by electronic agreement. Map Poster then confirms by electronic means the correct receipt of the acceptance of the offer. Without this confirmation, the Customer can dissolve the contract.
All data that is sent, processed and saved electronically to be able to complete the agreement, will always take place in a secure manner. This will be achieved by Map Posters by means of a secure web environment. The payment is arranged through the online payment platform 'Mollie'. The payment options here are: Bancontact, KBC/CBC Pay Button, Belfius Pay Button, PayPal, iDEAL and SOFORT Banking. It is not possible to pay in cash.
Map Posters is entitled to refuse an order as a result of a serious shortcoming on the part of the Customer with respect to orders involving the Customer.
In order to conclude an agreement, the Customer must provide his personal details via an online form. Map Posters will ensure that this takes place via a secure page. The Customer undertakes to complete these details fully and correctly in order to be able to process the order correctly. If the Customer has entered incorrect or incomplete information and has not informed Map Posters of this or has done so late, the Customer will always have to pay the additional costs (e.g. incorrect delivery address). If the Customer fails to pay these additional costs, Map Posters reserves the right to cancel the entire agreement without any compensation to the Customer.
The execution time (production time), mentioned below in Article 5, starts from the moment the Customer has received a confirmation of the order. This is always after the Customer has completed payment.
If the payment was not successful, expired or was cancelled, a line is displayed indicating the unsuccessful payment. A link is also displayed where the payment can be continued.
The price indicated for each product is binding at the time the Customer places the order. Map Posters reserves the right to adjust the prices of the products on the website, to add new products to the offer or to carry out, modify or abolish promotional campaigns on all the products offered.
Article 5: Delivery and performance of the contract
Once your payment has been confirmed by the banking authority at Map Posters, the Customer will receive a confirmation email.
This acknowledgement of receipt serves as the starting point of the contract between Map Posters and the Customer. As of this starting point, Map Posters is legally obliged to deliver the purchased products within thirty days. If this deadline cannot be met, the customer will be informed accordingly and may dissolve the agreement made without any additional costs.
The Customer can waive the agreement made if Map Posters has not yet started production of the custom-made products. This is possible by contacting Map Posters by e-mail or by means of the contact form on the website. This must clearly state the customer's details in order to be able to terminate the agreement. The Customer will be informed by e-mail when the production of the order has been started.
The products will be delivered to the address that the client has made known to Map Posters. The risk of damage and/or loss of the sent products lies with Map Posters until the delivery of the products. The client is obliged to check any damage in the presence of the courier and to state this on the proof of delivery.
All delivery periods mentioned are always indicative. The customer cannot derive any rights from these delivery periods.
Article 6: Right of withdrawal
The Customer may not exercise the right of withdrawal for the delivery of custom-made products, if the production has started with the Customer's express prior consent and provided that the Customer has acknowledged the loss of his right of withdrawal.
By subscribing to the General Terms and Conditions, the Customer gives his consent to the immediate execution of the contract and acknowledges the loss of his right to withdraw from the contract once the production of the order has begun.
