IV. CONTRACT FORMATION AND INVOICING
The contract with ATOMA shall be formed as from the acceptance of the client’s order by ATOMA, which acceptance can only be given after payment has been received.
Only the express acceptance of ATOMA will give rise to the formation of a contract. ATOMA has the right to refuse acceptance of an order of the client, for whatever reason, including the non-availability of the ordered products.
In case of refusal of an order, ATOMA will promptly provide for a refund of any payment already received.
After the aforementioned acceptance, ATOMA may send an electronic invoice to the client, regardless of the client’s prior obligation to pay. The client may ask ATOMA for a paper invoice.
In case an offer has been accepted by ATOMA, but no payment was received, ATOMA has the right to claim, apart from the payment of the agreed price, interests for the belated payment, calculated on the basis of the legal rate and such as of the date of the first payment collection letter. In addition, ATOMA is entitled to claim an indemnity for administrative charges of 10 % of the amount of the agreed price, with a minimum of 30,00 EUR, unless proof of a more important damage.
In case an offer has been accepted by ATOMA, but no payment was received, ATOMA is also entitled to postpone delivery or to consider the agreement as terminated due to the client. In that case, ATOMA is entitled to claim an indemnity of 30 % of the amount of the agreed price, unless proof of a more important damage.
ATOMA tries its best to deliver in conformity with the accepted delivery and such at the address that the client provided when placing the order. However, it can prove impossible for ATOMA to deliver to certain locations. In such case, ATOMA will contact the client and the order will be cancelled or the parties will agree the delivery will take place at another address.
ATOMA aims to deliver in conformity with the accepted order and such within the time ATOMA indicated at the time of the order. ATOMA is unable to guarantee any firm delivery dates at the time of the order, but the delivery shall not take place later than 30 days after the formation of the contract.
ATOMA aims to keep the client informed if it is expected that the estimated delivery date will not be met.
ATOMA solely delivers in its standard packagings. Specific demands of the client in this respect will not be accepted, unless in case of an express, written confirmation by ATOMA, with an indication of the additional costs for the client resulting therefrom.
All risks in the product shall pass to the client upon delivery. The title of property of the products will only pass to the client after full payment of the products has been received by ATOMA.
The client ensures his availability for receipt of the delivery, at any time reasonably specified by ATOMA.
If the client is not available to take delivery or collection, ATOMA may leave a notice for the client at the delivery address, with instructions on either redelivery or collection from the carrier. The delivery might also be delivered to a neighbour or a safe place.
In case of delays in the delivery because of the client’s unreasonable refusal to accept delivery or if the client does not accept delivery or does not collect the product from the carrier (within two weeks of the first attempt to deliver the product to the delivery address), ATOMA is entitled to, without affecting any other right or remedy available to ATOMA:
– charge the client for a reasonable storage fee and/or other costs reasonably incurred by ATOMA.
– consider the agreement terminated due to the client. In that case, ATOMA will refund the payments received, less the above mentioned charges and an indemnity of 30 % of the amount of the agreed price, with a minimum of 30,00 EUR, unless proof of a more important damage.
While receiving the package, the client should thoroughly control the state of the packaging. If the packaging is broken or damaged, it should be communicated to the shipping agent and noted on the shipping receipt. If the damage is not noted on the shipping receipt, damage to the goods as a result of problems during the transportation won’t be compensated. These goods can’t be taken back by Atoma.
VI. FAULTY AND NON-CONFORM PRODUCTS
If the client considers products are faulty or non-conform, he should inform ATOMA within a delay of seven days from appearance of this problem. Only written claims addressed to ATOMA’s client service will be accepted (e-mail or registered post) : firstname.lastname@example.org or ATOMA Client Service, Itterbeeksebaan 71, 1700 Dilbeek.
In that case, the client will maintain the products in their present condition, in order to allow ATOMA to inspect these products within a reasonable delay. ATOMA will try to find a solution as soon as possible.
ATOMA is entitled, at its discretion, to refuse repair, replacement or refund of products in case:
– the product was used contrary to the instructions for the products issued by either ATOMA or the manufacturer;
– the product has been misused, abused or subjected to neglect, improper or inadequate care, lack of care, damage or abnormal conditions;
– the product bas been involved in an accident or attempt to modify or repair the product (save for when done by ATOMA.
VII. RIGHT OF WITHDRAWAL
The client that qualifies as “consumer” according to the Belgian code of economic law has the right to withdraw from a contract within 14 days without giving any reason.
This period to withdraw expires after a period of 14 days from the day the customer or a third party appointed by the customer, that is not the carrier, has taken possession of the goods.
The client is aware that this right of withdrawal does not apply in following situations:
3° delivery of products made according to specifications of the customer, or products that are clearly meant for a specific person.
In case of withdrawal, only the costs specified in article VI.50 and VI.51 of the Belgian code of economic law can be claimed from the client.
ATOMA reimburses any amount from the client, including costs of delivery, immediately and in any case within 14 days as of the day ATOMA was informed of the decision of the customer to withdraw.
For this refunding referred to in the preceding paragraph ATOMA will use the same means of payment as that which was used by the client during the initial transaction, unless the client has expressly agreed to use another type of payment and provided that the client due to such repayment may not have any cost.
However, if the client opted for a type of delivery other than the least expensive standard delivery offered by ATOMA, these fees are not refundable.
Unless ATOMA offered to collect the goods itself, ATOMA may, with regard to sale-agreements, withhold the reimbursement until it has received the goods back, or until the client has demonstrated that he has sent back the goods, whichever is the earliest.
The client bears indeed the direct cost of returning the goods.
The client is also liable for any reduced value of the goods resulting from treating of the goods which went beyond the treatment necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the goods.
The customer will not be held liable in any other way for exercising his right of withdrawal.
The client must, before expiry of the withdrawal period inform ATOMA of his decision to withdraw.
To this end, the customer can: 1. use the model withdrawal form set out in Annex 2 to the Book VI of the Belgian Code on Economic Law, or 2 ° any other unequivocal statement in which he conforms to withdraw from the contract. ATOMA may, in addition to these possibilities, offer the customer the possibility to fill in the form set out in the said Annex 2 or any other unequivocal statement on the ATOMA website and send it to ATOMA through the website. In these cases, the company shall inform the customer immediately on a durable medium with the confirmation of the receipt of the withdrawal.
The deadline to withdraw is considered to have been met if the customer did send the communication concerning his withdrawal within this period.
The burden of proof of exercise of the right of withdrawal in accordance with this article lies with the customer.
VIII. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
In case of contradiction between the present article on limitation of liability and the other clauses of ATOMA’s General Sale Conditions and any other document, the present article will prevail.

Should one of the articles or part of the articles of the present General Sale Conditions be declared void and/or null, this will not affect the validity of the other parts of the articles of these conditions.
