1.7. Changes and additions to the agreement are valid only if agreed in writing.
1.8. Festicup reminds its Customers to observe the following conditions of use:
1.8.1. Our products are made of quality plastics such as Polycarbonate, Copolymer, Polypropylene, SAN or Acrylic. These are intended for frequent reuse, however, under excessive load or pressure, the product can still break, splinter or deform.
1.8.2. the reusable cups are only intended for serving beverages suitable for the type of cup chosen. Here, there is only a crucial distinction to be made in serving hot drinks that can only be served in reusable cups made of Polypropylene or a Copolymer that is BPA-free such as Tritan Copolyester.
1.8.3. The reusable cups are best washed industrially and can withstand temperatures up to 95°C. If the Customer wishes to clean them in a domestic dishwasher, the Customer should avoid aggressive dishwashing products, often known as all-in formula tablets, to avoid damage to the cups and/or print. If the Customer wishes to clean them manually, the Customer should avoid hard abrasive elements to avoid scratches.
1.9. Festicup remains the exclusive holder of all intellectual property rights and/or know-how (in the broadest sense of the word) which it holds on goods and/or services supplied to it.

1.11. All invoices of Festicup are payable in cash at its registered office. In the event of full or partial non-payment of the debt on the due date, the amount due shall be increased, ipso jure and without notice of default, by interest equal to the Belgian legal interest rate plus 2%, with a minimum interest rate of 12% per annum, from the due date. In case of non-payment of the debt on the due date, by operation of law and without notice of default, the amount shall be automatically increased by 10%, with a minimum of € 40.00 and a maximum of € 2,500.00, even in case of granting of periods of grace, as a lump-sum compensation for extrajudicial costs. The non-payment of an invoice on its due date entitles Festicup to suspend, ipso jure and without notice of default, any further delivery of goods and/or services and entails, ipso jure and without notice of default: (1) the immediate exigibility of all invoices not yet due, both of Festicup and of its ancillary companies and (2) debt renewal and/or bilateral and/or multilateral set-off, both in favour of Festicup and of its ancillary companies. 'Ancillary firms' means companies belonging to the same group, it being understood that proof of this can be provided by any means of law.
1.12. The Customer accepts that electronic communications and backups may serve as evidence.
1.13. Belgian law applies exclusively to all agreements concluded and/or acts performed by Festicup; these agreements and/or acts are deemed to have been concluded and/or performed in Belgium.

2.8. DELIVERY & COLLECTION
2.8.1. In case of cup rental, the Renter has the choice between 2 delivery and collection options:
220.127.116.11. The rented goods are delivered and collected back by Festicup. In this case, the shipping costs are stated separately and calculated according to the Renter's delivery address.
18.104.22.168. The Renter itself collects the rented goods from Festicup in good time and returns the goods to Festicup in good time at the end of the rental period. No shipping costs apply, but the collection and return must take place within the current opening hours of Festicup's warehouse, as stated on Festicup's website. If collection or return delivery is not made on time, Festicup has the right to continue the rental, in which case a minimum fee of €250.00 per day will be charged.
2.8.2. The Renter gives his chosen delivery option to Festicup in advance. Festicup carries out deliveries/collections in Belgium and the Netherlands.
2.8.3. If the Renter prefers a mode of shipping other than that offered by Festicup as standard, these additional costs will be borne by the Renter.
2.8.4. Festicup and the Renter shall mutually agree on the time of delivery and collection.
2.8.5. Unless otherwise agreed between Festicup and the Renter, the following rates are charged for transport: € 150.00 (excl. VAT) for deliveries whose size is 1 pallet or less. If the delivery comprises more than 1 pallet, a surcharge of 100.00 € (excl. VAT) will be charged per pallet started.
2.8.6. On Delivery/collection of the rented goods by Festicup, the Renter must ensure that Festicup can reach the location where the rented goods are to be delivered/collected by passable road and at an agreed time which Festicup will indicate. Each loading/unloading address includes the first 15 to 30min (= 15min cups; 30min car wash). Additional delivery or pick-up attempts will have to be paid by the Renter at an additional cost of EUR 1.25/km driven, and this for the initial trip and additional trips. If the loading and unloading time is exceeded on site, EUR 17.50 per additional quarter-hour will be charged. The hirer must sort the cups in the containers provided and prepare them for collection. If the cups are not sorted in the bins, the Renter will be charged a triage fee of 0.03 EUR per cup (excluding VAT) with a minimum of 30.00 EUR/hour (excluding VAT).
2.8.7. Delivery times are indicative. Festicup shall endeavour to meet the agreed delivery period as accurately as possible. If the delivery period is not met with respect to the Renter-Consumer, the Renter-Consumer shall grant Festicup an appropriate additional delivery period. If no delivery has taken place within this additional delivery period, the Renter-Consumer may withdraw from the contract. Failure to meet the delivery deadline with respect to the Renter-Consumer cannot lead to cancellation of the rental or payment of damages to the Renter-Consumer. Accordingly, a delay in delivery does not relieve the Renter-Taker from any obligation to accept or pay for goods insofar as delivery is made before the start of the Renter's event.
2.8.8. Festicup is not liable for any damage during delivery or collection of the rented goods (e.g. damage to grass, garden or any other property). The Hirer is fully liable to ensure that the cups should be delivered and/or collected in an easily accessible place.
2.8.9. In the execution of the contract by Festicup, the Renter is obliged to do everything that is reasonably necessary or desirable to enable timely delivery by Festicup. In the absence of the Renter at the time of delivery, Festicup will take back the goods, this to exclude theft and other risks. In this case, the additional transport costs will be charged to the Renter. If the Renter is unable to take delivery or return the rented goods on the agreed date, Festicup reserves the right to recover all eventual damages (such as lost or extra transport costs) from the Renter.
2.8.10. If the Renter has not returned the goods after expiry of the rental period and/or has not fulfilled any obligation towards Festicup, Festicup has the right to recover the goods itself, without any reminder and without judicial intervention. All resulting costs shall be charged to the Renter, as well as the rental price remains due until the rented goods are put back at Festicup's disposal.
2.9. CHECKING THAT GOODS ARE IN GOOD CONDITION
2.9.1. The Renter is obliged to thoroughly inspect the delivered goods immediately upon receipt for any defects. If any should be incorrect, the Renter must immediately inform Festicup in detail. If the Renter does not immediately (at the latest within 4 hours after delivery of the rented goods) point out to Festicup in writing and in detail any defects which could have been noticed on thorough examination, then Festicup is deemed to agree to the condition in which the rented goods have been delivered or handed over and any right to make comments on the condition of the goods lapses.
2.9.2. For its part, Festicup is obliged to subject the goods to an initial inspection on their return with regard to an estimate of the damage to the rented goods, the loss and the state of contamination of the cups, after which a receipt for receipt of the return will be given to the Renter stating any initial findings. If the parties disagree on the initial review/assessment, the parties shall have the right to summon a bailiff on site at common expense to make a manual survey of the dirty, damaged or lost cups. If the numbers retained by the bailiff deviate less than 15% from Festicup's estimate, then the Renter shall bear the full cost of the bailiff himself as well as all additional costs of Festicup (waiting time driver/personnel, cups more difficult to clean, loss of rent,...). This receipt is without prejudice to Festicup's right to hold the Renter liable for any damage or loss of the goods: after thoroughly inspecting, cleaning and counting the returned rented goods, Festicup shall definitively inform the Renter of any defects it discovers and provide the Renter with a final invoice. The Hirer has a period of 7 calendar days to dispute this detailed statement to which the Hirer may come and verify the camera images within Festicup's premises in order to verify the correctness of the statement.

2.10.2. The Renter must dispose of the following items at his own expense and risk:

Before using, the Hirer must satisfy himself that he has sufficient knowledge to use and maintain the hired goods with due diligence. The Hirer declares that sufficient information and information was given by Festicup at the commencement of the Hire Agreement so that he can use and maintain the Hired Goods with due diligence. If the Hirer is uncertain about the use and maintenance of the hired goods, he should immediately contact Festicup in order to ascertain the correct use and maintenance of the hired goods. The Renter cannot invoke the lack of knowledge and skill on his part against Festicup in the event of any damage.

VAT) if the cups were not sorted correctly in the storage boxes.
22.214.171.124. Reusable cups may be dirty according to the reasonable use intended. Exceptionally dirty cups which contain matter other than residues of liquid (including vermin) will, at Festicup's discretion, either be regarded as a loss for which the Renter must compensate Festicup for the value of the cups to be regarded as a loss or be quarantined and then fall under special handling. If cups must be quarantined, the Renter shall bear all losses incurred by Festicup, including on account of the unusability of the cups.
126.96.36.199. Festicup or its appointed subcontractor who will take care of the cleaning will carry out a count of the goods/accessories after cleaning the cups.

VAT) per cup will be charged for this, or the costs of replacing the cups will be charged to the Renter, at the cost price stated on the offer or by the price which Festicup demonstrates by submitting a receipt from its supplier.

If cups have not been used and if they do not require cleaning, the provided cleaning cost will be credited.
2.12.1. When accepting the offer/placing the order via the Webshop, and in any case before taking delivery of the rented goods, the Renter shall pay a deposit to FESTICUP, amounting to at least 7% of the value of the rented cups.
2.12.2. Festicup reserves the right to offset expired rental instalments against the deposit, as well as the costs of cleaning, transport, repair/special handling and loss, damage or theft of rented goods, as well as all other credits due to Festicup. The lost or damaged cups will be charged at the current price for the purchase of new cups, which will be shown in the quotation or demonstrated by Festicup by means of a proof from its supplier.
2.12.3. Except for the cases mentioned in 2.12.b., Festicup is obliged to return this deposit to the Renter at the termination of the rental contract, if at that time the Renter has fulfilled all his obligations towards Festicup, this within 30 calendar days after cleaning the cups.

The Renter shall provide a copy of the insurance policy to Festicup at Festicup's simple request.
2.14.1. The rented goods remain the property of Festicup at all times. The Renter is custodian of the rented goods throughout the rental period. The risks are transferred from the moment the rented goods are made available or delivered to the Renter (the Renter normally signs a receipt for receipt but the delivery/receipt of the goods can be proved in any way) and this until the moment the rented goods are made available to Festicup again (Festicup normally signs a receipt for receipt of the return).
2.14.2. Damage caused to or by the rented goods during the rental period are the full responsibility of the Renter (including theft and vandalism by third parties).
2.14.3. Festicup is not liable for damages which the Renter causes directly or indirectly to third parties as a result of the use of the rented goods.

The unit price per lost cup will be shown in the offer or can be demonstrated by Festicup by submitting proof from its supplier. The loss consists of the repair of the material damage (including the loss value), the replacement of the destroyed or disappeared goods, as well as all harmful consequences resulting from the damage, the destruction or the disappearance of the rented goods if there is a loss.

This section of the general terms and conditions applies to any agreement whereby FESTICUP sells cups to a Customer.
3.1.1. All offers, whatever their form, are based on the prices currently in force and are valid for a period of 14 calendar days from the date of the offer, unless otherwise stated. Consequently, the written acceptance of our offer, duly signed for agreement, and the Customer's payment must be in our possession no later than the last day of the aforementioned period. After this deadline, Festicup is entitled to adjust prices, whereby the Customer must decide within the deadline given in this adjusted offer whether the order will be carried out at the adjusted prices. In the absence of timely and correct acceptance and payment, Festicup has the right to refuse the order.
3.1.2. Festicup is entitled to revise the price of the materials offered if the price of the material or characteristic raw materials has increased by more than 10% between the date of the offer and the scheduled date of delivery. The price increase shall be calculated by comparing the price of the material or of the raw materials on the relevant stock exchange or trading platform or the price charged by the supplier on the two relevant dates, and applying the coefficient thus obtained to the price of the material or of the raw materials offered by Festicup. A similar revision clause applies in the event of an increase in hourly wages.
3.1.3. If the Customer is a consumer and only if he has purchased goods from Festicup via the Webshop which are exclusively for non-professional purposes, then the consumer has a period of 14 working days after receipt of the product to inform the seller that he renounces the sale. To do so, the consumer may use the model form sent with the goods or an unequivocal, written statement that the consumer declares that he withdraws from the contract. The goods must then be returned within the same period at the expense of the buyer in the original, undamaged and original packaging, together with all accessories, the user manual/insert and (a copy of) the invoice/delivery note by registered post to: FESTICUP BV, Nieuwlandlaan 35b, 3200 AARSCHOT. Incomplete, damaged, used or soiled goods will not be taken back. At the latest 14 days after acceptance of the return, the seller will refund any sums paid, excluding the direct costs of delivery. According to the WER, the right of renunciation does not apply to: the delivery of products manufactured according to the consumer's specifications or which have a clearly personal character or which cannot be returned due to their nature.
3.2.1. The delivery deadlines are given for information purposes and never give any right to delay interest or compensation. Nor do they give any right to annul the order, except thirty days after a registered demand for delivery.

If the ready-made goods cannot be collected or delivered on the planned date or within 7 calendar days after notification that the goods are ready for collection or delivery, they will be stored at Festicup's or a third party's premises at the customer's responsibility, risk and expense for which €0.50 per pallet per calendar day will be charged.
3.2.4. Festicup reserves the right at all times to demand an advance payment of at least 50% of the price before making delivery. If justified doubts arise as to the fulfilment of the obligations by the purchaser, he is obliged to provide security at first request.

3.2.6. No return of goods will be accepted without prior agreement from Festicup.
3.3. COMPLAINTS - LIABILITY OF FESTICUP
3.3.1.

Complaints regarding the invoices and regarding hidden defects must be notified to Festicup in writing under penalty of cancellation within ten days of receipt of the invoice and discovery of the defect within the deadlines defined below respectively.
3.3.2. The duration and scope of the guarantee are always limited to those authorised by Festicup's supplier. Any guarantee lapses if, without Festicup's prior written consent, the customer calls on third parties to carry out repairs to a good supplied by Festicup, as well as in the event of wrong or excessive use or non-compliance with the conditions of use as stated in the documents provided.
3.3.3. Festicup is entitled to replace the legitimately refused deliveries or those covered by the guarantee, without this giving rise to any compensation (indirect costs, damage, loss of use, operating losses, etc.) at its expense.
