SECTION 7 - DELIVERY
For the delivery, you as a user, have the possibility to make us deliver your box at your home or at one of our picking points. The delivery address can be altered into your account on our website or by sending an email to our customer service; firstname.lastname@example.org. A change of address will take effect for delivery if you have notified us of it before the change deadline (5 days before the delivery date).
You can choose between individual orders or deliveries based on a fixed regularity (weekly). You always have the option to change, skip, or cancel your subscription. See more about this in article X of these general terms and conditions. We currently only deliver in Leuven and a 10 km radius, hopefully we will expand soon. The time frames for delivery, as stated in the customer account on the website, in the app, and in the confirmation email are indicative.
We make every effort to ensure that the delivery takes place within the period specified by you. However, you have to understand that certain circumstances may arise that delay the delivery For example, collision, unexpected traffic jam, weather conditions, or any other circumstance. In this case, we will notify you immediately on the information you provided to us and look for a solution. However, we are not liable for the late deliveries.
You agree to the delivery of the goods to the specified delivery address and during the period you indicated. You guarantee that the driver can deliver the goods to a person who is present at the indicated address or at the place you have indicated (for example, when you indicate that we may put the box in your garage). If no one is present to receive the goods, we will try to reach you via the details you provided. If that does not work either, the driver will deliver to your neighbors or will place them in front of your house. We will also inform you about this. Delivery in this way is entirely at your risk and Gérard Bakery is not responsible for any spoilage or disappearance of the products. Stated differently, you are responsible for the delivered goods from the moment of declaration.
If certain obstacles could make the delivery more difficult (for example, a broken track, manifestations, etc.), we ask you to inform us as much as possible via the comments that you can enter with the order.
We are not responsible for lost or damaged packages. It is only possible to recover defects in the quality of the delivery from Gérard during the transfer between the driver and the person who receives the box.
Gérard Bakery is not responsible for the inability to deliver goods due to incorrectly entered information. In this case, you are of course not entitled to a refund.
Finally, if you opt for a collection at one of our collection points, the collection must take place within the specified collection times. If the products are not collected within this time frame, they can no longer be collected and you are of course not entitled to a refund. If the collection point is not available, we will inform you within reason.
SECTION 8 - PAUSE OR CANCEL ORDERS AND/OR SUBSCRIPTIONS
Gérard Bakery orders the products for the benefit of your agreement on a weekly basis prior to the delivery to your house.
With regards to an order, we work with fresh food products that we deliver to your home or that you can pick up at a collection point. Of course, these products have a limited shelf life and can spoil quickly. As a result, you do not have a right of withdrawal under the Belgian customer law. Nevertheless, Gérard Bakery still allows you to cancel, skip, or pause your order (single order or order within a subscription) provided that you respect a notice period of at least 5 calendar days before delivery. These terms must be respected as we order our ingredients for and our products from suppliers. If you successfully skip or cancel your order before the deadline for changes, you will not receive any products in the following week. The deadline for changes also applies to any other changes to the agreement.
You can skip an agreement at any time. This means that you have to cancel the delivery of your products in a certain week. The delivery will resume the following week unless you skip again. You must provide the notice about suspending your agreement via your account before the deadline for changes (5 calendar days before planned delivery).
If you have entered into a membership that extends to the weekly delivery of the box, we speak of an agreement for an indefinite period. You can cancel an agreement for an indefinite period at any time. You must pass on the notice about canceling your agreement via your account before the deadline of changes (5 calendar days before planned delivery). The termination of the agreement will then become definite.
You can skip or cancel your agreement in the same way as it was entered into. In addition, you can always cancel by sending an email to our customer support; email@example.com.
