General Terms and Conditions
1.1 Without prejudice to the application of any special conditions in a separate written agreement, these general terms and conditions shall apply to any offer, order confirmation, purchase or sale agreement between Beyond Ordering BV, with registered office at Brusselsesteenweg 255, 9090 Melle, East Flanders, Belgium and KBO number 0760305893 (hereinafter the “Company”) and its customer (hereinafter the “Customer”). In case of contradiction between these general conditions and any separate written agreement, the written agreement prevails.
1.2 The Customer is deemed to have fully and irrevocably accepted these general terms and conditions by the mere fact of placing the order or instruction placed by him. Acceptance implies that the Customer completely waives the application of its own general terms and conditions so that they are not opposable to the Company.
1.3 If any provision of these general terms and conditions should be unenforceable or conflict with mandatory law, this shall not affect the validity and enforceability of the other provisions of these general terms and conditions. In such a case, the disputed provision shall be replaced by an enforceable and legally valid provision that corresponds as closely as possible to the purpose of the original provision.
2.1 All price lists, quotations and contract proposals of the Company are without obligation, are for information purposes only and do not bind the Company as such.

4.6 In case of full or partial non-payment of an invoice on its due date, all other claims against the Customer that have not yet fallen due shall become due by operation of law and without prior notice of default.
