The ordering process happens as follows : you select the model you would like to customize and have it produced by Twikit; Depending on the specific product, you choose the material, accessories, size and text style. You choose the country where the model must be delivered; you have a view of the order and the costs (production, delivery, and other taxes when applicable); you choose the payment manner and execute the payment and confirm the order. Before paying, you have the possibility to go back in the process (clicking the "back" button) if you see that a mistake has been made and you would like to modify it. You must ensure that the information you submit in your order is accurate and complete before paying it, because afterwards it is impossible to bring any modification because the production starts immediately. Should it not be the case, modifications will be allowed in so far it has been agreed by Twikit in writing. When you place an order, you make an offer to us to buy a product. After you have placed an order, we will send you an e-mail confirming your order details. This confirmation means that a binding agreement will exist between us, except if there is an inability to process orders, which you shall be informed at last within three working days after filing your order. Twikit may, at any time during the quotation and the ordering and the manufacturing process, revoke and/or cancel any quotation/order, if there are technical reasons to do so. In such case, Twikit will reimburse you all monies paid. The prices, charged upon placement of the orders, are calculated based on the product choice, material and accessories. Twikit maintains records of orders and allow you to have access to it for an indefinite period. Twikit recommends that you keep a printed copy of these terms and conditions as well as a copy of the order confirmation and invoice.
The price calculated by Twikit contains the cost for the use of the Twikit configurator, the manufacturing of the product and the shipment of the product, as well as taxes when applicable. There is no insurance. Other duties and taxes applicable for the delivery of the product, even if not mentioned in the invoice sent by Twikit, will be paid by you. The price is calculated in EURO, DOLLAR or YEN. Offsetting against any kind of non-approved counter-claims as well as execution of right of retention of goods shall be excluded unless established in court, undisputed or recognised by Twikit. Twikit remains the sole owner of the products until their entire payment, transport and taxes included. Separate parts of a quote can be invoiced separately. Twikit bvba reserves the right to refrain from execution of further components of a quote, or of a following quote, or to terminate a delivery, as long as the outstanding issued invoices remain unpaid. Twikit retains full legal title to products until it has received in full all amounts due on those products and payment on any other products that you have ordered.
The average time required to produce the model is about 10 working days. This is a preliminary indication, but does not bind Twikit in any way. The delivery time is based on the working conditions applicable at the time the agreement is concluded and on the punctual delivery of the materials ordered by Twikit for the execution of the order. Should a delay rise for which Twikit is not responsible, as a result of a change in the aforementioned working conditions or because materials ordered in time for the performance of the work are not delivered on time, the delivery time shall be extended as required and Twikit cannot be held liable for such delay. Should your payment details be incorrect, the delivery will be postponed until the correct information is received from you. Twikit uses its discretion in selecting a reputable carrier and appropriate means of delivery. All risks during transport are borne by you.
As the products are made immediately on the basis of your specifications, there is no right to return or possibility for cancelling your order within a certain period of time. Upon delivery of the product, Twikit expects that you submit the product to a thorough inspection. If, upon inspection, you feel that the product is not in conformity with the order, you should contact us as soon as possible and at the latest 14 days after your receipt of the product. In the case that you omit to exercise this control or decides to use a non-conform product, you dismiss Twikit from any liability for the possible consequences of the usage of this product. You should not return products without having received an explicit request from Twikit to do so. Twikit reserves the right to revoke and/or modify (part of) a quotation and/or order confirmation for technical reasons. The liability of Twikit vis-à-vis you for real and proven damage will, regardless the gravity of the failure, be limited to the price of the product directly related to the reason of the claim. All other liability of Twikit, such as that for consequential loss, other indirect loss and loss as a result of third party liability, is excluded.
