Complaints and disputes

Here you can find how we handle disputes and complaints

Complaints

  • The entrepreneur has a well-publicized complaints procedure and handles the complaint in accordance with this complaints procedure.
  • Complaints about the execution of the contract must be submitted fully and clearly described to the entrepreneur within a reasonable time after the consumer has discovered the defects.
  • Complaints submitted to the entrepreneur will be answered within a period of 14 days from the date of receipt. If a complaint requires a foreseeable longer processing time, the entrepreneur will respond within the period of 14 days with a notice of receipt and an indication when the consumer can expect a more detailed answer.
  • If the complaint can not be resolved by mutual agreement within a reasonable period or within 3 months after the submission of the complaint, a dispute arises that is subject to the dispute settlement rules.


Disputes

  • Only Dutch law applies to agreements between the entrepreneur and the consumer to which these general terms and conditions apply.
  • A dispute will only be dealt with by the Disputes Committee if the consumer has first submitted his complaint to the entrepreneur within a reasonable time.
  • No later than twelve months after the dispute has arisen, the dispute must be submitted in writing to the Disputes Committee.
  • If the consumer wants to submit a dispute to the Disputes Committee, the entrepreneur is bound by this choice. If the entrepreneur wishes to do so, the consumer will have to make a written statement within five weeks after a request made in writing by the entrepreneur, whether he wishes to do so or wants the dispute to be dealt with by the competent court. If the entrepreneur does not hear the choice of the consumer within the period of five weeks, then the entrepreneur is entitled to submit the dispute to the competent court.
  • The Disputes Committee shall not deal with a dispute or discontinue the proceedings if the Entrepreneur is granted a moratorium, has been declared bankrupt or has actually ended his business activities, before a dispute has been dealt with by the Committee at the hearing and a final statement has been made.
  • If there is a dispute that the buying and selling party can not solve, use the ODR platform https://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/
