Use of our website must always be in accordance with the rights and obligations clearly stated on the website and the rights and obligations stipulated in the Disclaimer, the Terms and Conditions of Sale and the Privacy Statement. The whole of these texts are our General Terms and Conditions.
These General Conditions apply both to us, EM Klein Strand NV, and to you, the User. As soon as you make use of our website, you expressly acknowledge and accept that our General Terms and Conditions are applicable and that the application of our own General Terms and Conditions is fully waived.
We may deviate from the General Terms and Conditions in exceptional cases, provided these deviations are recorded in writing and accepted by all parties. Such deviations shall only replace or supplement the clauses to which they relate and shall not affect the application of other provisions of the General Terms and Conditions.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any further questions or comments; we promise a prompt reply!
2. Our website
2.1 Proper functioning, security and accessibility
Rest assured, we offer a user-friendly website that is safe for every User. We take all reasonable measures to ensure the proper functioning, security and accessibility of our website. However, we cannot give you absolute guarantees and our measures must be regarded as an obligation of means.
Any use of the website is at your own risk. This means that we bear no liability for damages resulting from breakdowns, interruptions, harmful elements or defects on the website, regardless of the existence of an extraneous cause or force majeure.
We have the right to restrict and/or interrupt access to all or part of our website at any time, without prior warning. In principle, we will only do so if circumstances warrant, but this is not an absolute requirement.
2.2 Content on our website
The content of the website is largely determined by us and we take the utmost care in creating it. This means that we take the necessary measures to keep our website as complete, accurate and up-to-date as possible, even when content is provided by third parties. The content on our website may be changed, supplemented or removed at any time.
Nevertheless, we cannot guarantee the quality of the information on our website. Information may not be complete, sufficiently accurate and/or useful. Consequently, we cannot be held liable for (direct and indirect) damage suffered by the User as a result of the information on our website.
In the event that certain content on our website violates applicable laws and/or infringes the rights of third parties and/or is simply unacceptable, we ask you to notify us as soon as possible so that we can take appropriate action. For example, we may proceed with partial or total removal and/or modification of the content.
Our website contains content that can be downloaded. Any download from our website is always done at your own risk. We are not liable for this and damage resulting from a loss of data or damage to the computer system is the sole and exclusive responsibility of the User.
Specifically for prices and other information about products on the website, a reservation applies to apparent programming and typing errors. The User cannot claim an agreement with EM Klein Strand NV on the basis of such errors.
2.3 What we expect from you as a User
The User also bears a certain responsibility when using our website. The User must always refrain from actions that could have a harmful impact on the proper functioning and security of the website. For example, the website may not be used to circumvent our business model and/or to collect information from other Users on a large scale.
Consequently, it is not permitted to use our website to distribute content that may cause damage to other Users of the website, such as the distribution of harmful software such as computer viruses, malware, worms, trojans and cancelbots. This also includes the dissemination of unsolicited and/or commercial messages via the website, such as junk mail, spamming and chain letters.
We reserve the right to take all necessary actions that may produce recovery for us and our Users, both judicial and extrajudicial. The User is solely personally and entirely responsible if his actions and behaviour effectively cause damage to the website and the other Users. In that case, he must indemnify EM Klein Strand NV against any claim for damages that follows.
3. Links to other websites
The content of our website may contain a link, hyperlink or framed link to foreign websites or other forms of electronic portals. A link does not automatically mean that there is a link between us and the foreign website, nor that we (implicitly) agree with the content of these websites.
We do not control these foreign websites and are not responsible for the safe and correct operation of the link and its final destination. Once one clicks on the link, one leaves our website and cannot hold us liable for any damages.
Foreign websites may not offer the same guarantees as we do. We therefore recommend that you carefully read the General Terms and Conditions and the Privacy Statement of these websites.
4. Intellectual property
Creativity deserves protection, and so does our website and its content. The protection is provided by intellectual property rights and belongs to all entitled parties, i.e. EM Klein Strand NV and third parties. By content we mean the very broad category of photos, video, audio, text, ideas, notes, drawings, articles, et cetera. All this content is protected by copyright, software law, database law, design and model law and other applicable (intellectual) property rights. The technical nature of our website itself is protected by copyright, software law and database law. Any trade name we use on our websites is also protected by applicable trade name law or trademark law.
Each User is granted a limited right to access, use and display our websites and its content. This granted right is non-exclusive, non-transferable and can only be used within a personal, non-commercial framework. We therefore ask our Users not to use and/or make any changes to the items protected by these rights without the consent of the rights holder. EM Klein Strand NV attaches great importance to its intellectual property rights and has taken all possible measures to guarantee the protection thereof. Any infringement of existing intellectual property rights will be prosecuted.
5. Processing of personal data
The information provided by you is necessary for processing and completing orders, and preparing invoices and guarantee contracts. A minimum amount of data is required for each order. Further data may be requested in function of personalising the order. If the minimum data is missing, the order will inevitably be cancelled. The Buyer's personal data will only be processed in accordance with the Privacy Statement to be consulted on our website.
6. General Terms and Conditions
We reserve the freedom to modify, extend, limit or discontinue our website and the associated services at any time. This may be done without prior notice to the User and shall not give rise to any form of compensation.
These General Terms and Conditions (including the Conditions of Sale) shall be exclusively governed and interpreted in accordance with Belgian Law. All disputes relating to or arising from offers made by EM Klein Strand NV, or agreements concluded with it, will be submitted to the competent court in the judicial district of Bruges.
Should the operation or validity of one or more of the above provisions of these General Conditions be compromised, this will not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of this agreement. In such case, we are entitled to change the provision concerned into a valid provision of similar purport.
