Terms of Sale

- The present terms of sale define the terms and conditions under which Mme Bernadette LEPAGE offers and sells her products to her customers.
- These general conditions of sale take precedence over any other conditions appearing in any other document, unless otherwise previously specified in writing.
- By placing an order for wine or other products sold by Mme BAELE the customer fully accepts all the present conditions of sale.

Governing law

This agreement will be governed by Belgian law, regardless of the geographical origin of the dispute and the region and country where goods are delivered.
Jurisdiction. Any dispute regarding deliveries or payment of bills issued by Mme LEPAGE shall fall under the jurisdiction of the courts of Namur.

Orders

Any order placed by a customer is irrevocably binding except for exceptions specified in law. All orders are payable in full on delivery; all orders are irrevocable, whether or not a deposit has been paid. If the customer refuses to take delivery of goods ordered, the seller will have the choice either to take legal action, or demand in compensation, as damages and interest for the loss of the sale, a sum of 15% of the agreed price as fixed compensation to which the seller is automatically entitled, the parties expressly agreeing not to discuss the amount. If the seller fails to fulfil her obligations, she will be liable to the customer for equivalent compensation. The reference prices will be those current at the time of delivery. Mme Bernadette LEPAGE reserves the right to refuse or cancel any order from a particular customer, in the event of the customer's insolvency or failure to pay for the order concerned, or a dispute over payment in a previous order.

Delivery

Delivery times are indicative and are not binding for the seller. Any delay in delivery does not in principle entitle the customer to compensation or a cancellation of the agreement. Provided it is explicitly specified in the offer, this may vary in particular cases agreed upon by both parties. Claims regarding delivery must be received by us within 8 days and in any event before the use or resale of goods.

Billing

Any claims concerning our bills must be addressed to us in writing by registered post, within 8 days of the date of the bill. The claim will always specify the date and the bill reference n°. All bills are payable in full as of the bill date, unless otherwise indicated. Non payment of a bill within the times specified above will incur from the due date, automatically and without prior notice, an arrears interest of 1% per month and an arrears penalty of 10% per year on the total amount of the bill with a minimum of EUR 50.00. If the seller fails to fulfil her obligations, she will be liable to the customer for equivalent compensation. The reference prices will be those current at the time of delivery. Unpaid goods shall remain the property of the seller.

Variant

Any bill not paid when due will automatically and without prior notice incur arrears interests at the legal rate increased by 5% per year. The amounts remaining due to the seller will in addition be increased by a fixed compensation of 10% with a minimum of EUR 75.00 for internal expenses, without prejudice to the debtor’s liability for all or part of any legal expenses and other fees and expenses of any kind relating to the recovery of the unpaid debt. If the seller fails to fulfil her obligations, she will be liable to the customer for equivalent compensation.

Ownership of goods sold

In all circumstances and according to art. 1583 CC, the ownership of goods sold is only transferred to the customer following full payment of the agreed price. In the event of non payment of bills when due, we may immediately, automatically and without prior notice, consider the agreement to be cancelled. We will then be entitled to recover goods sold to the customer, without prejudice to compensation for damage incurred.
- The fact that the seller does not implement any clause in its favour in these general conditions may not be interpreted as a renunciation on its part of its right to exercise the clause.
- The general conditions appearing on the customer’s documents are not enforceable against the seller.
- Photocopies, faxes, emails, etc. issued by us shall serve as written evidence and shall serve as legal evidence in the same manner as originals.
- Personal data relating to your identity and consumer habits will be used by the seller, whose contact details are listed above, for purposes of customer management and direct marketing. You have the right to review your relevant personal information and make corrections if applicable. You also have the right to oppose the use of your information for direct marketing purposes.

Protection of minor

The sale of alcohol to minors aged under 16 years old is illegal in Belgium. Anyone ordering wine from Mme Bernadette LEPAGE therefore confirms that they are at least 16 years old.

Protection of intellectual rights

The buyer is duly informed of the fact that the name “Domaine du Ry d’Argent” is legally protected. It may only be used with the seller’s permission.

Mme Bernadette LEPAGE and her team make every effort to supply you with products of the highest possible quality and would ask the buyer to also do their best to respect goods supplied. Without prejudice to any other measure taken to stop a practice that is improper or liable to harm the brand image, the seller reserves the right to refuse to sell to a customer who would not respect these conditions or would harm the product’s brand image.
