    1. In addition to the warranty as described in article 12 of these Terms, the Client has the possibility to purchase a Peace of Mind Maintenance Service (the “POMM-Service”), which covers maintenance costs caused by normal wear and tear after purchasing the VanMoof Bike.

      1. VanMoof reserves the right to define which maintenance checks are to be performed by a Bike Doctor or which can be conducted by the Client themself. In the event of any self-maintenance, the Client agrees to use original VanMoof parts during the maintenance as to avoid not being entitled to the benefits of the POMM-Service. If the Client is not able to prove the maintenance has been performed or any damage is incurred due to the use of non-approved VanMoof parts or accessories, VanMoof reserves the right to invoice the Client for the costs incurred by VanMoof as a result of the incorrect maintenance.
      2. Ad-hoc repairs are subject to fair-use of the Product and can be declined should it become evident that the Client is mistreating the Agreement and Product.

When applying for and creating your Account, You must provide accurate and complete information, and keep such information updated and accurate throughout the term of the POMM-Service. You are solely responsible for the activity that occurs on your Account, and You must keep your Account password secure. You must notify VanMoof immediately of any breach of security or unauthorized use of your Account. VanMoof will not be liable for any losses caused by any unauthorized use of your Account.

By providing your email address to VanMoof, You consent to our use of that email address to send You POMM-Service-related emails, including any notices required by law, in lieu of communication by postal mail. By providing your mobile phone number to VanMoof, You consent to our use of the phone number to send You POMM-Service-related SMS messages. You cannot opt out of POMM-Service-related emails or SMS messages as these are vital to performing our POMM-Service to you, unless You terminate the POMM-Service.

You agree that VanMoof will not be liable to You for any interruption of the POMM-Service, delay or failure to perform.
    9. Without limitation to Art. 5.10, The POMM-Service encompasses services and costs related to replacing or repairing mechanical items due to normal wear and tear with normal (e.g. recreational, commuting) use of the bicycle, which services may include but are not limited to; tightening components, lubricating components, the replacement of brakes, brake pads, wheels, handlebars, handlebar controls and buttons, chain, chain guard or kickstand, or a combination thereof.

      1. Flat tires, damage due to accidents, damage due to vandalism, damage of electrical components, repair or replacement of parts that fall out of the warranty period, shipping costs to and from service locations.
      2. a malfunction of any software, application or other material downloaded to your bike from third parties by You or anyone else using your bike with your permission;

    11. VanMoof Bike Doctors reserve the right to define which mechanical pieces need replacing during a check-up.
    12. For the purpose of maintenance and repair work, whether or not instigated by VanMoof, the Client must transport the bicycle to and from a VanMoof Brand Store, or remote “fixer network” locations or arrange for such transportation to one of these locations. This obligation applies throughout the duration of the Agreement, even in the event of a large or larger distance between the Client and the nearest VanMoof Brand Store occurring as a result, for example, of a new address of the Client or the closure/relocation of a VanMoof Brand Store. VanMoof shall be entitled (but not required) to repair damage to the Bicycle caused by circumstances for which the Client is liable at the expense of the Client.
    13. The Client has the right to cancel the purchase of the POMM-Service within a cancellation period of 14 (fourteen) calendar days following the date on which the bike is delivered, without giving any reason.
    14. To exercise the cancellation right as referred to in article 5.13, the Client must timely notify VanMoof clearly, in writing dated and sent within the cancellation period of article 5.13 (by letter or e-mail) or via the web portal of their wish to cancel the POMM-Service.
    15. Clients have the possibility to transfer the POMM-Service when selling their VanMoof bike to a third party. In this event, the remainder of the POMM-Service will follow the VanMoof bike to the new owner upon completion of applicable registration formalities for establishing and maintaining an account.
  6. Prices

    1. All VanMoof’s prices are in EUR/USD/GBP/JPY unless expressly stated otherwise. Insofar as prices are stated in other currency than EUR/USD/GBP/JPY, then such statement of price is deemed to be based on the EUR/USD/GBP/JPY equivalent of such price at the date that the price statement was made. Prices are exclusive of value added tax or any other sales tax. Costs of packing and dispatch, import and export duties and taxes and any other surcharges, levies or taxes imposed or charged in respect of the Products and the transportation thereof shall be for the Client’s account.
    2. Prior to delivery, any change of factors having an impact on the prices of VanMoof, including but not limited to rates of third parties, currency exchange rates, insurance rates, import and export duties and any other charges payable upon importation or exportation, freight charges and other charges, levies or taxes, may be charged on to Client by VanMoof.
    3. Service fees; You agree to the fees and charges, terms of sale, payment and billing policies applicable to your use of the POMT-Services or POMM-Services (“Services”) as stated in these Terms and the applicable account registration for these Services. VanMoof may add new services for additional fees and charges, or amend fees and charges for existing Services, at any time in its sole discretion. All fees and charges for your use of the Service are non-refundable, except as may be expressly stated in Terms. If at any time fees for an existing Service are increased, You are of course free to cease your use of the Service by providing notice and sending it to the e-mail address as indicated in article 2.3 above. Continued use of the Service will be treated as your agreement to the new terms.
  7. Payment

    1. The delivery period indicated by VanMoof shall be based on the circumstances applicable to VanMoof at the time the Agreement is entered into and, to the extent dependent on performance by third parties, on the information that those third parties provided to VanMoof. All delivery dates are estimates only.
    2. Except as otherwise provided herein, the delivery period shall commence on the date of VanMoof’s written Order confirmation. Provided, however, if, in order to execute the Order, VanMoof requires additional information from the Client, the delivery period shall commence on the date on which VanMoof disposes of all the necessary information or resources, but not earlier than the date of the written Order confirmation.
    3. The Client shall not be entitled to claim any compensation in the event of an overdue delivery period. Neither shall the Client be entitled to dissolve the Agreement in such an event, unless the Client is considered to be a Consumer. See article 8 for additional details. Consumers have the right to dissolve the Agreement after they have requested to deliver within a reasonable timeframe or such timeframe as provided by law and VanMoof was not able to deliver within that reasonable period or timeframe as provided by law.
    4. VanMoof shall at all times be entitled to deliver in part-consignments.
  8. Consumer Rescission Right

    1. If the Client is a Consumer, when entering into a remote sales transaction (i.e. when entering into a contract via the Web portal), as a matter of principle s/he must be informed about a statutory rescission right by VanMoof in accordance with the statutory template. There is a template rescission form in Article 8.2
    2. You have the right to rescind this contract within fourteen days without naming reasons. The rescission period is fourteen days from the date on which You or a third party named by You, who is not the carrier, has taken the goods into possession. In order to exercise your rescission right, you must notify us, VanMoof B.V., by means of a clear declaration (e.g. a letter sent by mail, fax or email) concerning your decision to rescind this contract. You can use the attached template rescission form for this purpose, but this is not necessary. In order for the rescission period to be complied with, it is sufficient that You send the notification concerning the exercise of the rescission right before the expiry of the rescission period.
    3. Consequences of rescission: If You rescind this contract, we are obliged to refund to you all of the payments which we have received from you, including the delivery costs (with the exception of the additional costs which arise from the fact that you have chosen a kind of delivery other than the inexpensive standard delivery offered by us), without undue delay and at the latest within fourteen days from the date on which the notification concerning your rescission of this contract is received by us. We use the same payment means for this refund as the payment means used by you in the original transaction, unless something to the contrary has been expressly agreed upon by you. In no event will you be charged a fee due to this refund. We can refuse to make the refund until we have received the goods back or until you have provided us with evidence that you have sent the goods back, whichever is earlier. You are obliged to send the goods back to us or to hand the goods over to us without undue delay, and in any event at the latest within fourteen days from the date on which you notify us about the rescission of this contract. The period is complied with if you send the goods before the expiry of the fourteen-day period. VanMoof bears the direct costs of sending the goods back, if You still have the original packaging. If You want to return a Product and You no longer have the packaging, VanMoof will send you a new one for EUR 25. You must only bear any loss in the value of the goods if that lost value is attributable to any handling which is not necessary to check the quality, properties and functioning of the goods.
    4. The rescission right does not exist for contracts for the delivery of Products which are manufactured according to customer specifications or are clearly tailored to personal needs. VanMoof hereby supplies the following information pursuant to the statutory regulation about the template rescission form:

      Template rescission form (if you want to rescind the contract, then please fill out this form and send it back to us.)

      — to [please insert here the name, address and fax number and email address of the entrepreneur, as applicable]:
      — I/we(*) hereby rescind the contract entered into by me/us(*) concerning the purchase of the following goods(*)/the rendering of the following service(*)
      — ordered on(*)/received on(*)
      — name of the consumer
      — consumer’s address
      — consumer’s signature (only in the case of notification on paper)
      — date

      (*) delete whichever is incorrect

      End of Rescission information
    5. Please note that You cannot exercise a right to withdraw in case of Products made to the Consumer's specifications or clearly personalized.
  9. Delivery and risk

    1. If and to the extent that parties have not explicitly agreed in writing on the (costs of) delivery of the Products and the transfer of risk, the delivery shall be made at VanMoof’s premises, and the risk of the Products and the packing thereof shall be transferred to the Client at the moment the Products are ready for dispatch, while the dispatch shall be effected for the Client’s account and risk. In the event the Client is considered to be a Consumer, the foregoing in article 8.1 shall not apply and the moment of delivery and transfer of risk is the moment that the Consumer has taken receipt of the Products.
    2. If the Client should fail to collect the Products it has ordered or should fail to do so promptly, it shall be in default without requiring a written notice of default. In such event VanMoof shall be entitled to store the Products for the Client’s account and risk and to sell these to a third party. The Client shall remain liable for the purchase price plus the interest and costs (by way of compensation) after the deduction of the net proceeds of such sale to a third party, if any.
  10. Retention of title

    1. Irrespective of the actual delivery date, the title to the Products shall not be transferred to the Client until it has paid VanMoof the sum outstanding in respect of the Products in full, including the purchase price, any surcharges, interest, taxes and costs payable pursuant to the Terms or an Agreement and any services rendered or to be rendered in respect of the Products.
    2. The Client shall not be authorized to rent, let or make the Products available in use to third parties, to pledge them or to otherwise encumber them in favour of third parties until VanMoof has transferred the title of those Products to the Client.
    3. If and as long as the title to the Products has not yet been transferred to the Client, the Client shall inform VanMoof forthwith in writing in the event that the Products are seized, attached, garnished or if any other claim should be made with regard to the Products.
    4. In the event of attachment, seizure, garnishment, bankruptcy, involuntary liquidation or a (provisional) moratorium of payments, the Client shall immediately inform the administrator or liquidator, the bailiff or the process-server serving the seizure, garnishment or attachment, of VanMoof’s rights of title.
  11. Inspection and complaints

    1. The Client shall be obliged to carefully inspect the Products immediately upon arrival at their destination or to have these examined upon receipt by the Client itself or any third party acting at its instructions, whichever is earlier. VanMoof must be informed in writing to support@vanmoof.com of any complaints in respect of defects to the Products or any discrepancies in quantity, weight or quality between the Products supplied and the specification thereof in the relevant order confirmation or invoice no later than within five (5) calendar days after the receipt of the Products. The notification of the Client must give a clear and precise description of the complaints in respect of defects invoked by the Client. The Client must notify VanMoof of defects that could not in reason have been discovered within the above mentioned period in writing immediately after discovery, but in any case no later than within 14 (fourteen) calendar days of the receipt of the Products. Should the Client fail to inform VanMoof within the above mentioned term, its rights to exercise any of its rights with regard to such irregularity or defect have lapsed.
    2. The Client shall be obliged to immediately cease the use of the Products concerned after discovering any irregularity or defect, under penalty of lapse of the right to exercise any of its rights with regard to such irregularity or defect. The Client shall provide any cooperation VanMoof may require in order to investigate the complaint.
    3. The Client shall not be entitled to return Products to VanMoof before VanMoof has agreed in writing to such return. The return shipping is free and there are no costs associated with it for the Client. The Products shall remain at risk of the Client until receipt by VanMoof of such Products.

  12. Limited Guarantee / Warranty

    1. In the event of the purchase of a new S3/X3 VanMoof bicycle model, in addition to the Client's statutory warranty claims, VanMoof gives the Client a limited 3-year* guarantee that the Products are free from defects in workmanship and materials. A different guarantee period might apply for heritage models and outlet sales, if and to the extent such different guarantee is stated in the individual purchase agreement.
    2. This limited guarantee referred to in article 12.1 is expressly limited to the replacement of a defective frame, or defective parts, which is the sole remedy under this limited guarantee. This guarantee applies to the original owner and is transferable for the remaining period in the event of a new owner having purchased the bike.
    3. Claims under the limited guarantee must be made directly to your point of purchase in your country, whereby proof of the purchase is required. The replacement of boxes is not covered by the limited guarantee. In the event You need a replacement of the box, We’ll send You one for an additional fee.
    4. This limited guarantee does not cover normal wear and tear, improper assembly or follow-up maintenance, or installation of parts or accessories. The limited guarantee does not apply to damage or failure due to accident, misuse, abuse, or neglect. Modification of the frame or components shall void this limited guarantee. This limited guarantee shall not apply in case of a copy, modification, reverse engineering, decompiling, disassembly of or otherwise tampering with the Product, its components and/or the Service. VanMoof is not responsible for incidental or consequential damages. This limited guarantee does not affect the statutory warranty rights of the Client.
    5. The incorporated battery of the Product is tested and should perform over 800 charge cycles before it falls below 70% of its original total capacity during the warranty period as described in article 12.1 of these Terms. 

      * A different warranty period applies for heritage models and outlet sales and certain accessories, such as the Power Bank (being a two (2) year limited guarantee), without prejudice to the other terms and conditions of article 12. This different warranty period will be stated during the check out process for your purchase.
  13. Force majeure

    1. If VanMoof is unable to fulfil any of its obligations towards Client due to force majeure, these obligations shall be suspended during the force majeure situation.
    2. Provided however,if a force majeure situation has lasted for one (1) calendar month, both parties have the right to dissolve the Agreement in writing entirely or in part. In the event of force majeure of VanMoof, Client is not entitled to any compensation or damages, not even if VanMoof would enjoy any benefit as a result of such force majeure.
    3. Force majeure on the part of VanMoof is to be understood as a case of overmacht as mentioned in article 6:75 Dutch Civil Code, and furthermore any circumstance beyond the control of VanMoof hindering the fulfilment of its obligations towards Client entirely or in part or because of which VanMoof cannot be expected in all fairness to fulfil its obligations, regardless whether such circumstance could have been foreseen at the time when the Agreement was concluded. Such circumstances include but are not limited to fires, acts of terrorism, strikes and lockouts, the outbreak and/or spread of viruses and/or diseases, stagnation or other production problems suffered by VanMoof or its suppliers, or problems in the transportation provided by VanMoof or any third parties, any government measures, as well as the inability to obtain any permit or licence from any governmental body.
    4. Parties shall notify each other as soon as possible of any (possible) force majeure situation.
  14. VanMoof’s Products

    1. VanMoof warrants only those features, qualities of its Products that are explicitly agreed in writing. All other specific or implied warranties are – to extent allowed under applicable mandatory law – hereby expressly excluded.
    2. If VanMoof should deliver Products to the Client which VanMoof has obtained from its own suppliers, VanMoof shall at no time be obliged to honour a warranty or liability in respect of the Client which is more far-reaching than that which VanMoof can claim from its own supplier.
    3. Except as provided in section 13.1, if, in VanMoof’s opinion, the Client has been able to prove that any Products supplied by VanMoof to the Client do not function properly, VanMoof may choose, at its sole discretion, between:
      1. re-supplying the Products upon the return of the Products;
      2. modifying the Products properly;
      3. granting the Client a discount on the purchase price to be agreed by mutual consent.
      4. VanMoof shall be fully discharged of its warranty obligations by complying with one of the options described above, and it shall not be held to pay any further compensation or damages.
    4. The Products shall remain completely for the Client’s risk even if VanMoof should carry out any repairs to the Products.
  15. Liability

    1. Any liability of VanMoof shall at all times be limited to the sum insured that shall be paid in such case under the liability insurance policies taken out by VanMoof. These insurance policies have limited cover, inter alia with respect to the amount of the damages and the number of insured events per year. Upon request thereto, access may be obtained to the insurance cover note. Should no payment be made by virtue of aforementioned insurance policies, regardless of the grounds, the liability of VanMoof shall be limited to the fee that was invoiced by VanMoof and paid by Client in connection with the delivery at hand during a 12 (twelve) month period directly preceding the date on which the event leading to liability occurred, up to a maximum liability of € 10,000 (ten thousand Euro).
    2. In the event that VanMoof involves third parties, VanMoof shall not accept any liability whatsoever for failure to perform on the part of such third party except to the extent for failure to perform on the part of VanMoof itself — to which article 15.1 applies. If the Client brings legal action directly against a third party, the Client shall indemnify VanMoof against any claims by such third party in connection with such claim as well as against all expenses to be incurred by VanMoof.
    3. Client’s claims for compensation are hereby excluded. This exclusion shall not include the Client’s compensation claims arising out of the loss of life, physical injury, damage to health or out of the breach of fundamental contract obligations (cardinal obligations), or liability for other damage and loss which is due to an intentional or grossly negligent breach of duty by VanMoof, its legal representatives or vicarious agents. Fundamental obligations are those whose fulfilment whose fulfilment is what makes the due performance of the contract possible at all and whose fulfilment may be usually relied upon by a contract partner
    4. In the event of a breach of fundamental contract obligations, VanMoof is liable only for the contract-typical, foreseeable damage and loss if this was caused through simple negligence, unless the Client’s compensation claims arise out of a loss of life, physical injury or damage to health.
    5. The limitations of liability arising out of 15.1 and 15.2 do not apply insofar as VanMoof’s liability is due to fraudulent concealment or the assumption of a guarantee. The provisions of the German Product Liability Act remain unaffected.
    6. The limitations in 15.1 and 15.2 apply also in favour of VanMoof’s legal representatives and vicarious agents when claims are directly made against them.
  16. Termination

    1. If Client fails to fulfil any of its obligations arising from the Agreement properly or in time, Client shall be in default and VanMoof shall be entitled without any default notice:
      1. to suspend the fulfilment of the Agreement until payment has been adequately guaranteed; and/or
      2. to dissolve the Agreement with Client entirely or in part;
      3. all this without prejudice to VanMoof's other rights under any Agreement whatsoever and without VanMoof being held to any damages
    2. If VanMoof exercises its right of termination as mentioned in article 16.1, VanMoof is authorized to set off any amount which may possibly be refunded to Client with a remuneration for activities already carried out as well as with a compensation for loss of profit.
    3. In the event of bankruptcy, (provisional) suspension of payment, liquidation or attachment of one or more assets of Client or if Client is aware that any of these situations may occur, Client must notify VanMoof thereof as soon as possible.
    4. In case of a situation as referred to in article 16.3, all Agreements with Client shall be terminated immediately by notice from VanMoof or VanMoof may notify Client that it wishes (part of) the Agreement concerned to be fulfilled, in which case VanMoof is entitled without any default notice:
      1. to suspend fulfilment of the Agreement(s) concerned until payment has been adequately guaranteed; and/or
      2. to suspend all its payment obligations, if any, towards Client;
      3. all this without prejudice to VanMoof’s other rights under any Agreement whatsoever and without VanMoof being held to any damages.

  2. Registration Process

    1. An Applicant Customer may apply for a Subscription via the Web Portal. A Contract comes into effect once the Applicant Customer has submitted an application via the Web Portal (and accepted these General Conditions) and once VanMoof has accepted the Applicant Customer as a Customer. These General Conditions apply to all Subscriptions and form part of every Contract between a Customer and VanMoof.
    2. These terms and conditions apply to all subscriptions and are part of every contract between a customer and VanMoof, provided that the VanMoof branded business that the customer visits for the subscription is located in Germany
    3. VanMoof reserves the right to refuse an Applicant Customer if:
      1. The Applicant Customer has had a previous Subscription terminated by VanMoof;
      2. VanMoof has some other reason for believing that the Applicant Customer will not comply with the terms of the Subscription, the Contract, and/or these General Conditions; or
      3. the Applicant Customer does not live within a radius of 10 kilometres from a VanMoof Brand Store.
    4. Before VanMoof will supply the Bicycle to the Customer, the Customer must:
      1. have paid the Initial Payment to VanMoof;
      2. have supplied VanMoof with a payment authorization via the Web Portal (credit card) for payment of the Monthly Fee and any other sums payable under the Contract and/or these General Conditions, which method of payment must have been verified and accepted by VanMoof in writing; and
      3. at the time of collecting the Bicycle from a VanMoof Brand Store prove their identity by means of a valid form of ID.
  3. Bicycle

    1. For the duration of the Subscription VanMoof will supply to the Customer a Bicycle of the agreed type and model. Unless VanMoof decides to replace the Bicycle, the Customer will have the use of the same Bicycle for the duration of the Subscription. The Bicycle will remain at all times the property of VanMoof.
    2. For the duration of the Subscription VanMoof will carry out maintenance and repairs on the Bicycle (parts and labour) insofar as such work is required as a result of normal wear and tear through normal use. For the purpose of maintenance and repair work, whether or not instigated by VanMoof, the Customer must transport the Bicycle to and from a VanMoof Brand Store or (at their own expense) arrange for such transportation. This obligation applies throughout the duration of the Subscription, even in the event of a large or larger distance between the Customer and the nearest VanMoof Brand Store occurring as a result, for example, of a new address of the Customer or the closure/relocation of a VanMoof Brand Store. If available, the Customer will be able to loan an alternative bicycle for the duration of the repairs or maintenance to their Bicycle. VanMoof shall be entitled (but not required) to repair damage to the Bicycle caused by circumstances for which the Customer is liable at the expense of the Customer.
    3. Work carried out on the Bicycle by the Customer or a third party is at the expense of the Customer, unless VanMoof has confirmed in advance in writing that it will be responsible for such costs.
    4. VanMoof is entitled to take back the Bicycle at any time in consultation with the Customer and replace it with a comparable Bicycle.
  4. Key, Transfer of Key

    1. The Key is strictly personal and may be used only by the Customer or, if the Customer is a legal entity, by the natural person for whose benefit the Subscription is taken out. Except by transfer of the Key in accordance with the provisions of this Article 4, the Customer is not permitted to share the Key with any third party or to enable any third party to use the Bicycle.
    2. During the registration process the Customer will create a password that will provide them with access to the confidential information and functions within the Web Portal. The Customer undertakes to treat the log-on data in the strictest confidence and shall ensure it remains inaccessible to any third party.
    3. The Customer must update the personal and payment data it has supplied to VanMoof as soon as possible following any change in such data via the Web Portal.

    4. The Customer may transfer the Key (and thus the exclusive right to use the Bicycle) to an Applicant Customer. The Key gives such Applicant Customer the exclusive right to use the Bicycle without this Applicant Customer being liable to pay VanMoof the Initial Payment, on condition that this Applicant Customer has first accepted these General Conditions and has been accepted by VanMoof as a Customer, whereby the legal obligations of the Customer to VanMoof arising under the Subscription are transferred to this new Customer by means of an assignment of contract as defined in Book 6 Article 159 of the Dutch Civil Code. In the case of a transfer of the Key in accordance with this Article 4, the start date of the Subscription of the new Customer is the date on which the Key is supplied to the person who has been assigned the Key. The Customer may offer the Key to an Applicant Customer in any way permitted by law, but transfer of the Key must be effected via the Web Portal.
    5. VanMoof has no control over the willingness of an Applicant Customer to accept transfer of the Customer’s Key or any payment that the Applicant Customer may be prepared to pay for such transfer. VanMoof does not guarantee that there will at any time be any Applicant Customer wishing to accept transfer of the Customer’s Key, nor does VanMoof give any guarantee as to the amount that any Applicant Customer may be willing to pay for the transfer to them of the Customer’s Key. VanMoof expressly does not guarantee that as a result of a transfer of the Key the Customer will receive a payment equal to, or in proportion to, the amount of the Initial Payment.
    6. It is the sole responsibility of the person who transfers the Key, and not VanMoof, to actually supply the Bicycle to the Applicant Customer who has accepted transfer of the Key. The transfer of the Key is a transaction between the Customer that transfers the Key and the Applicant Customer who accepts transfer of the Key. VanMoof is not a party to this transaction and the right of revocation specified in Article 11 does not apply to this transaction.
    7. These General Conditions apply to the party that is assigned a Key from an existing Customer and to the Contract with such party, with the exception of Article 2.3.
    8. VanMoof is entitled to refuse to cooperate with the the transfer of the Key and assignment of Contract referred to in section 4 of this article 4 if there are compelling reasons. Such a compelling reason would include, for example, a situation in which the Customer wishing to transfer the Key is in breach of their obligations to VanMoof.
  5. Guest Use

    1. For the duration of the Subscription the Customer and one partner, family member or friend of the Customer may during a stay in a city abroad (outside Germany) in which a VanMoof Brand Store is located make use of a Bicycle (‘Guest Use’) at no additional cost.
    2. VanMoof will use its best efforts to be able to offer Bicycles for Guest Use to the Customer, but cannot guarantee the availability thereof. Bicycles for Guest Use should be booked via the Web Portal and will be allocated on a ‘first come, first served’ basis. Following a confirmed booking, any such Bicycle may be collected from the VanMoof Brand Store or other location designated for such purpose by VanMoof and at the end of the relevant period must be returned to the same location. No such Bicycles will necessarily be of the same value as the Bicycle in respect of which the Subscription is purchased.
    3. The Customer may take advantage of Guest Use for a maximum of seven (7) consecutive days and a total of no more than fourteen (14) days per calendar year.
    4. By taking advantage of Guest Use the Customer and - where relevant - their partner, family member or friend acknowledge that all obligations of the Customer arising from these General Conditions will apply to such Guest Use. In addition, local mandatory conditions may apply. In the event of any discrepancy between any local mandatory conditions and these General Conditions, local mandatory conditions will take precedence over the provisions of these General Conditions.
  6. General Obligations and Prohibitions

    1. The Customer must:
      1. act with the required duty of care and treat the Bicycle with care, in accordance with the instructions given by VanMoof and with local traffic laws and regulations;

      3. always keep the Bicycle locked, using as a minimum (depending on type) the ring lock supplied with the Bicycle or the rear-wheel lock integrated within the Bicycle and, where possible, also using the chain lock supplied with the Bicycle;
      4. always enable the Bicycle’s alarm system (if fitted to the Bicycle) when parking or storing the Bicycle;
      5. carry out small repairs at their own expense, such as: (i) regularly checking tyre pressure and, where necessary, inflating the tyres, and (ii) keeping up-to-date and regularly checking the sturdiness of moving parts, and oiling and greasing such parts as necessary;

      7. ensure that the Bicycle is maintained in accordance with the maintenance schedule specified by the manufacturer;
      8. arrange for repair at their own expense by VanMoof of any damage to the Bicycle resulting from circumstances for which they are liable; and

    2. The Customer is not permitted to:
      1. make alterations to the Bicycle that cannot be reversed without causing damage to the Bicycle. Bicycle child seats and other accessories are permitted provided that these can be removed without damaging the Bicycle;
      2. use the Bicycle for commercial purposes (such as leasing/sub-leasing, or for use in providing courier or delivery services) or for cycling sport competitions, or tests;
      3. make the Bicycle available to family members or, if the Customer is a legal entity or business owner, to employees;
      4. use the Bicycle other than on roads and cycle paths;
      5. exceed the maximum load of the Bicycle specified by the manufacturer;
      6. manipulate, decompile, reverse engineer, or disassemble in any way the electronics and/or software of the Bicycle, the Key, or the Web Portal, or use these in any way for data gathering;
      7. arrange for repairs or alterations to be carried out to the Bicycle without the prior express written approval of VanMoof;
      8. take the Bicycle abroad (outside the Netherlands);
      9. park the Bicycle in any place where this is prohibited;
      10. grant a security interest in the Bicycle; or
      11. make copies of the keys to the locks supplied with the Bicycle.
  7. Theft, Embezzlement, Actual Loss, Total Loss

    1. The Customer must safeguard the Bicycle to the extent possible against theft, embezzlement, and actual loss by enabling the alarm of the Bicycle (if fitted to the Bicycle) and keeping the Bicycle locked using as a minimum (depending on type) the ring lock supplied with the Bicycle or the rear-wheel lock integrated within the Bicycle and, where possible, also using the chain lock supplied with the Bicycle.
    2. In the event of theft, embezzlement, or actual loss the Customer must notify VanMoof accordingly by e-mail or via the Web Portal immediately, and in any event within 24 hours of discovery, and report the matter to the police. The Customer must return to a VanMoof Brand Store all original keys to the Bicycle supplied to the Customer.
    3. On receipt by VanMoof of a report of theft, embezzlement, or actual loss of a Bicycle, together with a copy of the police report, the VanMoof Bike Hunters will try to find the Bicycle. If they fail to return the Bicycle to the Customer within two weeks of receipt of the report, VanMoof will replace the Bicycle by one that is to the extent possible of equal value unless any of the situations described in section 6 of this article arises.
    4. If the Bicycle is a total write-off or so badly damaged that the repair costs would exceed the amount of the Initial Payment, this is referred to as ‘Total Loss’. In the event of Total Loss the Customer must notify VanMoof immediately by e-mail or via the Web Portal, and in any event within 24 hours of discovery, and VanMoof will replace the Bicycle by one of equal value to the extent possible, unless any of the events described in section 6 of this article has occurred.
    5. Until such time as the Bicycle is returned to the Customer following its theft, embezzlement or actual loss, or the Customer receives a replacement Bicycle from VanMoof, the Customer may loan an alternative bicycle provided there is one available. The Customer must collect the Bicycle (once it has been recovered by the Bike Hunters), the replacement bicycle, and/or a loan bicycle from, and return them to, the nearest VanMoof Brand Store. For each occasion that the VanMoof Bike Hunters are deployed, whether or not they succeed in recovering the bike, VanMoof will charge the Customer a fee of €98.00.
    6. VanMoof will not replace the Bicycle, and the Customer is liable to make a payment to VanMoof (the amount of which is specified in the Contract and is dependent upon the type and value of the Bicycle) upon the occurrence of one or more of the following events:
      1. the Customer’s third occurrence of a theft, embezzlement, actual loss and/or Total Loss;
      2. the theft, embezzlement, actual loss and/or Total Loss is the result of the own fault, deliberate act, recklessness (whether or not intentional), and/or deliberate intent of the Customer. This would be the case if, for example, the Customer has not locked the Bicycle sufficiently or at all, has not used the Bicycle’s alarm, or not otherwise sufficiently protected the Bicycle against theft, embezzlement, or actual loss (for example, through careless handling of the keys), or if the damage or Total Loss is the result of improper use of the Bicycle (for example, by using the Bicycle in breach of these General Conditions); or
      3. the Customer, following an actual or alleged theft, embezzlement, actual loss, or Total Loss of the Bicycle, is unable to hand in the keys to the Bicycle to a VanMoof Brand Store.

    1. Unless a minimum duration for the Subscription has been agreed, the Subscription is for an indefinite term and may be terminated by the Customer at the end of a calendar month subject to two weeks’ written notice sent by letter, e-mail or via the Web Portal.

    2. VanMoof may not terminate the Subscription during the first five years following the date on which the Key is first supplied by VanMoof to a Customer, unless an event as described in section 4 of this article has occurred. After five years following the date on which the Key is first supplied by VanMoof to a Customer, VanMoof may, in addition to any rights to terminate under section 4 of this article, terminate the Subscription at any time for any reason, provided that VanMoof pays compensation to the Customer for such termination in accordance with the following table:

      2. VanMoof will only pay this compensation once the Bicycle has been returned to VanMoof in accordance with section 6 of this article; and
      3. VanMoof reserves the right to reduce the amount of compensation or not to pay any, as it sees fit, in the event of any damage or defects to the Bicycle other than resulting from normal wear and tear.

Upon a termination of the Subscription pursuant to section 4 of this article VanMoof has the right to:

    6. Following termination of the Contract, the Customer must return the Bicycle to VanMoof in the same condition as it was supplied to the Customer, with any additions or changes made to the Bicycle by the Customer reversed.
  9. Payment, Arrears of Payment

    1. The Monthly Fee and any other payments due under the Contract and/or these General Conditions, will be transferred monthly in advance by means of the payment method selected at the time of registration. In the case of commercial Customers agreement can be reached for payment to be made in respect of regular invoices. Payment of the Monthly Fee for the next calendar month must be made by no later than the last day of the current calendar month. The Monthly Fee due in respect of the first calendar month is calculated pro rata according to the number of days between the signing of the Contract and the end of that month.
    2. The Customer irrevocably authorizes VanMoof or - in the case of an assignment of the right as described in section 5 of this article - the party to which the right has been assigned, to obtain payment of all sums owed by the Customer under the Contract and/or these General Conditions by means of direct debit from the account indicated by the Customer or the debiting of their credit card, or other selected payment method included in the Web Portal.
    3. The Customer remains liable for payments that VanMoof has not been able to collect. If the Customer has not paid the Monthly Fee or any other payment even after a payment reminder has been sent, VanMoof will contact the Customer to again request payment and offer the Customer the option to update their personal and/or payment data.
    4. If a payment has not been received by VanMoof within 60 days of the payment date, and VanMoof has sent the Customer at least one payment reminder, VanMoof reserves the right to report the theft and/or embezzlement of the Bicycle and to recover the Bicycle. The Customer shall be liable for all costs thereby incurred by VanMoof. Furthermore, in such a case the Customer shall not be entitled to any partial refund of the Initial Payment.
    5. VanMoof reserves the right to assign its rights under the Contract and/or these General Conditions.
  10. Privacy

    1. VanMoof may store and process personal data and other information pertaining to the Customer and use this to make offers, whether or not personalised, to the Customer.
    2. In the case of theft or embezzlement of the Bicycle or reasonable suspicion of theft, embezzlement, or fraud, VanMoof shall be entitled (but not required) – if the type of Bicycle permits this – to locate or track the Bicycle’s location, and/or to check whether prior to the alleged or actual embezzlement or theft the Bicycle had been locked.
  11. Cancellation Rights

    1. The Customer has the right to cancel the Contract (and thus the Subscription) within a cancellation period of 30 days following the date on which the bike is delivered, without having to give reasons.
    2. To exercise these cancellation rights, the Customer must notify VanMoof clearly, in writing (by letter or e-mail) or via the Web Portal of their wish to cancel the Contract (and thus the Subscription).
    3. If the Customer does cancel the Contract VanMoof will refund to the Customer no later than 14 days after VanMoof has received notice from the Customer of their decision to cancel all payments made to VanMoof by the Customer up to that moment, including delivery costs (but excluding any extra costs arising from any choice of delivery beyond the cheapest standard delivery offered by VanMoof). The refund will be effected using the same payment method used by the Customer for the original transaction, unless the Customer has expressly agreed otherwise. If the Customer has used the Bicycle during the cancellation period the Customer will pay a sum to VanMoof equal to the Monthly Fee, which sum VanMoof may deduct from any sums it owes to the Customer. If the Bicycle has already been supplied by VanMoof at the time of cancellation the said cancellation period of 14 days does not start to run until the Customer has returned the Bicycle to VanMoof in accordance with the provisions of Article 8.6.
    4. The rights of the customer according to section 12 below remain unaffected.
  12. Consumer's Right Of Withdrawal

    1. If the customer is a consumer, he has a statutory right of withdrawal when concluding a distance selling transaction (i.e. when concluding a contract via the Internet portal), about which VanMoof will inform you in accordance with the legal model below. A sample withdrawal form can be found in article 12.2.
  13. Liability

    1. Claims of the customer for damages are excluded. Excluded from this are claims for damages by the Customer arising from injury to life, body, health or from the violation of essential contractual obligations (cardinal obligations) as well as liability for other damages based on an intentional or grossly negligent breach of duty by VanMoof, its legal representatives or agents. Material contractual obligations are those whose fulfillment is necessary to achieve the goal of the contract.
    2. In the event of a breach of material contractual obligations, VanMoof is only liable for foreseeable damages typical for the contract if such damages were caused by simple negligence, unless the customer's claims for damages are based on injury to life, body or health.
    3. The limitations in paragraphs 1 and 2 also apply in favour of VanMoof's legal representatives and vicarious agents if claims are made directly against them.
    4. The limitations of liability resulting from paragraphs 1 and 2 do not apply if VanMoof's liability is based on fraudulent concealment or assumption of a guarantee. The provisions of the Product Liability Act remain unaffected.
  14. Miscellaneous Provisions

    1. VanMoof reserves the right to make any reasonable changes to the Subscription (including an increase in the Monthly Fee in line with the consumer price index) and/or to these General Conditions. VanMoof will notify the Customer at least 30 days before any change to these General Conditions becomes binding upon the Customer.
    2. If any provision of these General Conditions is deemed invalid, void, or unenforceable, this will not prevent the remaining valid, lawful and enforceable provisions from being fully binding.
    3. Book 7, Articles 207, 208, 210, and 216 (2) and (3) of the Dutch Civil Code do not apply.
    4. The Customer agrees to information concerning the Subscription being sent only in digital form, such as by e-mail to the e-mail address provided at the time of registration.
    5. Apart from any liability of VanMoof arising from a deliberate act or gross negligence, or by virtue of any mandatory law, VanMoof excludes all other liability to the Customer.
    6. In the event of force majeure VanMoof is not obliged to comply with any obligation arising from the Subscription, the Contract, and/or these General Conditions. The term ‘force majeure’ here includes the inability of VanMoof to comply with its obligations due to war, threat of war, civil unrest, disturbance, fire, water damage, frost, flood, earthquake, work stoppage, sit down, lock out, government measures, defective equipment, interruptions in energy supply, breakdowns in communication systems, and changes to relevant laws or regulations.
    7. The Subscription, the Contract, and these General Conditions are governed exclusively by Dutch law.
    8. The Dutch courts have exclusive jurisdiction to hear any dispute arising from the Subscription, the Contract, these General Conditions, or any other legal relationship between VanMoof and the Customer resulting therefrom.
    9. Except in the case of a transfer of a Key in accordance with the provisions of Article 4, the rights of the Customer arising from the Subscription, the Contract, or these General Conditions cannot be assigned without the prior written consent of VanMoof. This provision constitutes a stipulation with property-law effect as defined in Book 3 Article 83 (2) of the Dutch Civil Code.
