ESKIMO GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SALEPrior
The customer acknowledges to contract exclusively in accordance with the general stipulations at issue, from which can only be deviated with the explicit and written approval of Eskimo. Any additional and following orders will be effected under acceptance of the mentioned general terms and conditions. If one of the clauses stipulated below should lose its validity, this will by no means result in the invalidity of the remaining clauses.
1. Free right of replacement and return
The consumer has the right to inform the seller that he abandons his purchase, within 14 days following the day of product delivery, without payment of any fine and without motive given.The purchase of any article shall only become final after this return period of 14 days has expired. For further information, we refer to article 7, in which the right to abandon the purchase is explained.Please note that, during this period of 14 days, the delivered goods shall only be used in order to be checked – as is also common when trying on in a store - and that the articles shall be returned with their original tickets, labels as well as in the original packaging. Any other use or damage of the articles and/or packaging implies that the consumer has purchased the article. Eskimo is authorized to produce evidence by means of photography. It is only with the explicit approval that she can decide to take back these goods at payment of a compensation for any damages, the sum of which she has to stipulate.
2. Delivery/shipping charges
Eskimo is dependent on her suppliers and shall deliver within five to seven working days after receipt of the order, unless her own supplier is unable to deliver on time. If so, the consumer cannot claim damages in case of late delivery or impossibility to deliver the articles. In case of impossibility to deliver the goods, Eskimo will inform the consumer, at which the consumer has the choice either to choose a similar article at its current price or to have the purchase amount credited without any additional costs or compensations. The minimum value of the order for a delivery free of charge is EUR 39,00 (thirty-nine Euro). For orders with a lower value, postal expenses will be charges. Upon booking an order, these will be mentioned separately and explicitly. For deliveries outside Belgium, postal expenses will always be charged and be mentioned separately and explicitly upon booking an order.

Every shortcoming in complying with these general conditions, the customer not observing the agreement he made, grants Eskimo the right either to stop and postpone deliveries, without considering any term of notice, or to terminate the current agreement, without prejudice to the right to claim the damages actually to be proven. The same applies in case of bankruptcy of the customer, application for composition, entry into a collective debt settlement, dissolution with claim in liquidation en/or suspension of payments of the customer.
