Important note:

The commercial website http://www.dandoy-sports.be (hereafter called the “Website”) is an online sales website accessible via the Internet Network, open to all users of that network (hereafter called “Cybernauts”). It is managed by the SPRL Dandoy Sports (hereafter called “Dandoy sports”). Dandoy Sports head offices are located in Allée des artisans, n° 5  5590 CINEY, RPM Dinant – VAT – BE 0 445.862.973

The website enables Dandoy Sports to offer a greater amount of products than in its Dandoy Sports shops (hereafter called “Products”) to the Cybernauts surfing on the web (hereafter called the “Users”). For the purposes of this statement, it is understood that the User and Dandoy sports will be called “the Party, and a User who validates an order will then be called “a Buyer”. The rights and obligations of the User are necessarily applicable to the Buyer.

The User wishing to purchase online via the Website hereby formally declares that they have full legal capacity. However, a person who has been declared incapable under Article 1123 and following of the Belgian Civil Code, although not allowed to buy on the website and therefore become a Buyer, can be a website User. Consulting the website and the services it offers is then the responsibility of their legal representative. This legal representative is obliged to comply strictly with these terms. In any event, when giving personal detail information, the legal representative will have to fill in the sign in form themselves or explicitly authorise the person they represent to fill in the file. Of course the terms on personal data in the ensuing Article 7 are applicable.

The order’s fulfilment is subject to a possible refusal from Dandoy Sports. An order placement will be denied if there is a pricing error, if the prior order has not been paid or if Dandoy Sports judges that packages are lost or returned to frequently by the Buyer.

Any order of a Product offered on the website requires consultation and prior acceptance of these terms and conditions of sales, no written signature will be needed from the User.

In accordance with the Belgian law of 9 July 2001 on the legal framework for electronic signatures and certification services, reminding that order validation as stated in article 3.3 hereunder constitutes an electronic signature and therefore has, between both Parties, the same value as a handwritten signature and serves as proof for the completeness of the order and for the owed amount in exchange for the execution of said order.

Finally, the User can save or print these general terms and conditions, as long as the User does not change them.

Article 1. Object

Article 5. Model Instructions on Withdrawal

The Buyer holds the right to withdraw from their order, and if necessary to exchange one of more article(s) ordered, without giving any reason within 14 calendar days.

The withdrawal delay expires 14 calendar days after the day the User, or a Third party other than the transporter and chosen by the User, takes physical possession of the article(s), or of the last article (if the order includes various articles and if they are delivered separately).

To exercise their right for withdrawal, the User must notify their decision of withdrawal of said order, without possible misunderstanding, by email: info@dandoy-sports.com or by registered letter with an acknowledgement of receipt at Dandoy Sports SPRL- 5, Allée des artisans – 5590 CINEY.

In order to meet the delay for withdrawal, all the User has to communicate to Dandoy Sports their wish to exercise their rights for withdrawal before the time limit for withdrawal expires.

5.1. On the Effects of Withdrawal

In case of withdrawal of the User, said order will be fully reimbursed, except for the shipping fees.

The User will however have to pay the direct costs for sending back the articles if they don’t live in Belgium. A Customer living in Belgium can ask Dandoy Sports services for a return label that will allow them to send the order back. This return label is only valid once per order.

In case the withdrawal concerns only part of the order, Dandoy Sports will reimburse the Buyer all the payments received concerning said article(s), except for the shipping costs.

In case the withdrawal concerns the entire order, Dandoy Sports will reimburse the Buyer all the payments received concerning said order, except for the shipping costs.

Said reimbursement will be proceeded within a reasonable amount of time and, in any case, 14 days maximum after being informed of the User’s decision to withdraw all or part of the order.

Dandoy Sports proceeds to the reimbursement using the same payment method as the one used by the Buyer for the first transaction, unless the Buyer specifically arranged for a different method; in any case, the reimbursement will not cause for any costs for the Buyer.

Dandoy Sports can withhold the reimbursement until they receive the article(s) back or until the Buyer proves that said article(s) were shipped, the date kept will be of the first day of those facts.

The Buyer shall send the article(s) in their original packaging, without undue delay and, in any case, within a maximum of 14 days after communicating to Dandoy Sports their decision to withdraw part of the order or the entire order. It shall be considered that the delay was met if the User sends their article(s) within the 14 days delay. The User shall ask for an evidence to show the products were shipped (label with a number) in one Point Poste and keep it safe.

The Buyer is supposed to handle and inspect the product(s) with all due caution during the withdrawal period, like they would have been handled in a shop. Shall the Products be depreciated due to a handling that was not necessary to establish their nature, characteristics and functioning, the responsibility would fall on the Buyer.

Dandoy Sports holds therefore the rights to ask for damages compensations in case the articles returned are damaged, dirtied or worn; if the articles are not in their original packaging, not complete or if the instructions file or some pieces or accessories are missing; or if the articles were damaged due to negligence, abusive use or repaired by a third party or the User themselves.

5.2. Absence of a right of withdrawal

The User cannot exercise their right of withdrawal for 

  • Articles that were manufactured according to specific instructions or clearly customised;
  • Articles that could deteriorate or expire rapidly;
  • Tables and robots
  • Gifts (ex: t-shirt offered…)
  • The articles will only be exchanged if the stock is permitting.

5.3. Reimbursement and other details

How will the Buyer be reimbursed?

If the Buyer is due a reimbursement, the Buyer will be reimbursed minus the amount that they shall owe Dandoy Sports at the time. When the Buyer returns an item, they shall write their account number at the back of their delivery slip.

Important details :

  • Some clothing articles are delivered with a safety seal that it is imperative that the Buyer leaves on the item while fitting it. Any article sent back without the safety seal cannot be reimbursed or exchanged.
