Prices are exclusive of value added tax or any other sales tax. Costs of packing and despatch, 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. 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 Services as stated in these Terms.

  8. 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.
    2. The delivery period shall commence on the date of VanMoof’s written Order confirmation. If, in order to execute the Order, VanMoof requires 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.

    4. VanMoof shall at all times be entitled to deliver in part-consignments.
  9. Right of withdrawal

    1. 9.1If You are a Consumer, You have the right to withdraw from your purchase and return your order without giving any reason and without extra costs.
    2. 9.2The withdrawal period shall expire after 14 (fourteen) calendar days from the day on which You or a third party other than the carrier indicated by You acquires physical possession of the Products. When Products are delivered in multiple lots or pieces, the withdrawal period shall expire after 14 (fourteen) calendar days from the day on which You acquire the physical possession of the last lot or piece.
    3. Please note that You cannot exercise a right to withdrawal in case of Products made to the Consumer's specifications or clearly personalised.
    4. You shall send back the Products in the original box or the box provided by VanMoof according to article 12.3 of these Terms or hand them over to VanMoof, without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 (fourteen) calendar days from the day on which You communicate your withdrawal from this contract to Us. The deadline is met if You send back the Products before the period of 14 (fourteen) calendar days has expired.
    5. You are only liable for any diminished value of the goods resulting from the handling other than what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the Products. Installing the pedals and/or adjusting the handlebar and/or adjusting the saddle is likely to create small claws. To the extent that these actions are not necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the bike, You are liable towards VanMoof for any diminished value caused by these actions.
    6. In case You send the Products back to VanMoof, VanMoof can refuse repayment as long as VanMoof has not received the returned goods or until You have proved You have returned the Products, depending on which event occurs first.
    7. VanMoof shall reimburse You the purchase amount of the Products including any shipping costs charged with regard to the delivery of the Products no later than 14 (fourteen) calendar days starting from the day We received your returned Products.
    8. VanMoof shall use the same means of payment as You used for the initial transaction, unless You have expressly agreed otherwise and provided that You do not incur any fees as a result of such reimbursement. VanMoof shall not reimburse the supplementary costs, if You have expressly opted for a type of delivery other than the least expensive type of standard delivery offered by VanMoof.
    9. You shall handle the Order as well as the packaging with the utmost care during the first 14 (fourteen) calendar days after delivery. As a Consumer You will be liable for any diminished value of the goods resulting from the handling of the Products other than what is necessary to establish their nature, characteristics and functioning. In order to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the Products, You should only handle and inspect the Product in the same manner as You would be allowed to do in a shop.
    10. In order to exercise your right to withdraw, You can fill out the form on the “contact us” page on the website of VanMoof or make a similar unequivocal statement and send it to the e-mail as indicated in article 2.4 above. We will send You an acknowledgement of your withdrawal.
  10. 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 9.1 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.

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 corporate or unincorporated body, by the natural adult person for whose benefit the Subscription is taken out. Except by assignment of the Key in accordance with the provisions of this clause 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 keep the password strictly confidential and to use all reasonable endeavours to 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 every change in such data via the Web Portal.
    4.

    5. On correct completion of the assignment and documentation VanMoof will notify the Customer that the assignment has been completed and it is the responsibility of the Customer to effect handover of the Key, the keys to the Bicycle, and the Bicycle to the assignee.
    6. On an assignment there will be no reimbursement by VanMoof to the Customer of any part of the Initial Payment and it will be for the Customer to arrange with an assignee any payment the Customer may require as consideration for an assignment of his Contract to an assignee.

    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.

In the event of theft or other loss the Customer must notify VanMoof as soon as possible by e-mail or via the Web Portal, and in any event within 24 hours of discovery of such theft or other loss, and also promptly report the matter to the police. The Customer must be in a position to 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 or other 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 as far as possible of the same type, model and value unless any of the situations described in sub clause 7.5 arises.
    4. Subject to sub clause 7.5, until such time as the Bicycle is returned to the Customer following its theft or other loss, or the Customer receives a replacement Bicycle from VanMoof, the Customer may borrow 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 £85.
    5. 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) if any one or more of the following situations arises:

      2. the theft or other loss is the result of the own fault, act or omission, recklessness (whether or not intentional), and/or deliberate intent of the Customer.

    7. IF THE DAMAGE TO THE BICYCLE has arisen other than as a result of fair wear and tear or inherent defect, the cost of repair or, if the Bicycle is damaged such that it is a total write off or so badly damaged that the repair cost would exceed the amount of the Initial Payment (a ‘Total Loss’) a payment to VanMoof (the amount of which is specified in the Contract and is dependent upon the type and value of the Bicycle) must be met/made by the Customer.
    8. VanMoof does not insure the Bicycle or any user of the Bicycle against damage and/or injury or death caused in use of the Bicycle by or to the Customer or by or to a third party or third party property unless arising from fair wear and tear, or inherent defect in, the Bicycle and IT IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED THAT A CUSTOMER TAKE OUT AN ADEQUATE BICYCLE INSURANCE POLICY.
    9. In the event of damage to the Bicycle such that a Total Loss has occurred, VanMoof may in its sole discretion, replace the Bicycle by one that is as far as possible of the same type, model and value or, terminate the Subscription and accordingly the Contract with immediate effect and without prior warning notwithstanding the provisions of clause 8 and in that event, no compensation will be payable by VanMoof to the Customer.
    10. In the event of damage to the Bicycle not resulting in a Total Loss, the customer, providing the cost of repair of the Bicycle has been paid by the Customer, may borrow an alternative bicycle provided one is available pending repair of the Bicycle. The Customer must collect the temporary replacement bicycle from the nearest VanMoof Brand Store and return it to that store once notified repairs to the damaged Bicycle have been completed and the Bicycle is ready for collection.
