2. The customer may not remove or change any indications regarding intellectual property rights on/in the performances delivered or made available by the entrepreneur.
3. The buyer may not reproduce, publish, exploit or exhibit material belonging to the entrepreneur on which intellectual property rights are based without the permission of the entrepreneur.

ARTICLE 3 – The offer
1. All quotations are valid up to and including 21 days after the quotation date, unless the quotation shows otherwise. They are based on the data, drawings and measurements derived from the customer and any measurements taken by the entrepreneur. In doing so, the customer must inform the entrepreneur about facts and/or circumstances that may influence the execution of the agreement, insofar as they are relevant to the making of the offer (see also Article 7). In the case of floors, the entrepreneur uses the largest length and width measurements when measuring the surfaces, taking into account the packaging units that must be ordered from suppliers (running meters of carpet, packages of laminate, full-length skirting boards, etc.). Designs, images, drawings, statements of measures and weights and samples and models from the entrepreneur are as accurate as possible.
2. The quotation states a complete description of the products to be delivered and the work to be performed, the total (purchase) price, the delivery time, the payment conditions and the risks for both parties. The entrepreneur points out to the customer in the quotation that the customer must be careful with articles, materials and tools of the entrepreneur that are at work, in addition to the legal liability of the customer. When ordering 'on call', the quotation contains an explanation about this and information about the delivery time after call, as referred to in Article 6 paragraph 6. The quotation indicates the price of the materials and the way in which the price for the work to be performed is calculated. . There are two ways: contract price or directing. a. in the contract price, the parties agree on a fixed amount for which the work will be carried out; b. in the case of control, the entrepreneur accurately states what determines the price (eg hourly rate and prices of the required materials). At the request of the customer, the entrepreneur can give a target price, which is an estimate of the total costs. The quotation states if there are additional costs such as freight, delivery, payment or postage costs.
3. The activities that are not mentioned in the quotation are not covered by the agreed price. If the customer does require this, this can have a price-increasing effect (see also Article 12).
4. The customer must ensure that the entrepreneur can perform the work properly. If the customer has specific obligations, the entrepreneur will point this out in the offer. For example, remember that the installation points, the pipes and the drain pipes are present in accordance with the drawing of the entrepreneur (see art. 7 paragraphs 3 and 4).
5. If the customer does not accept the quotation, the entrepreneur may charge the costs of preparing the quotation. This is only allowed if the customer has been demonstrably made aware of the (amount of the) costs when or before requesting the quotation. The customer becomes the owner of the quotation and any drawings upon payment of the quotation costs. The intellectual property remains with the entrepreneur.

ARTICLE 4 – The agreement (for off-premises or distance agreements: see Article 17)
The payment

1. The entrepreneur may request a down payment when entering into an agreement with a consumer. No maximum percentages apply for a business customer (non-consumer). For a consumer, the amount of the maximum percentage depends on the product.

• Other price increases within 3 months after the conclusion of the agreement may not be passed on.
• Other price increases after 3 months after the conclusion of the agreement may only be passed on if this has been agreed. The entrepreneur also states why a price increase can be implemented and whether or not the consumer can then dissolve free of charge.
5. Price reductions after the conclusion of the agreement due to, for example, clearance sales, closing sales, promotions or discounts on showroom models, do not entitle the customer to a price reduction.
Retention of title
6. The entrepreneur remains the owner of the sold products until the buyer has paid the price (and any additional costs) in full. The customer is obliged to handle the products carefully. He may not hand over the products to third parties or pledge them, lend them or have them removed from the space where they were delivered until the amount due has been paid.

ARTICLE 5 – Delivery time and delivery
1. The delivery time is the agreed time within which the work must be performed or the products must be delivered. The delivery time is fixed unless an expected delivery time is stated in the agreement. If no delivery time has been agreed, a fixed delivery time of 30 days applies to a consumer purchase.

3. If the extra term is exceeded, the customer may dissolve the agreement and/or request compensation without notice of default or judicial intervention.
4. If the presumed or fixed delivery time is exceeded, the entrepreneur is not liable for any form of consequential damage in an agreement with a business customer.
5. In the case of an agreement with a consumer, the entrepreneur must compensate the damage that is related to the exceeding and that can be attributed to him, partly in view of the nature of the liability and the nature of the damage.
6. If it has been agreed that after the consumer has been notified, the entrepreneur will place an order (order on demand), then the agreed fixed or probable delivery time will run from the call date. Call-off must take place within nine months after the conclusion of the agreement, unless otherwise agreed. If no call-off takes place within that period, the entrepreneur will remind the customer in writing and give him a maximum of three months to call off. After this period, the agreement is considered canceled and Article 12 applies.

If special aids are required for this, the costs thereof will be borne by the buyer.
9. In case of delivery, the buyer must check the number of packages upon delivery of the products and check the products for visible damage. If there is a known shortcoming on the part of Zazuhome at the time of delivery, the buyer must make a note of this on the waybill.

ARTICLE 11 – Cancellation
1. If the customer cancels, he owes compensation. It is based on lost revenue based on industry averages. The compensation is made up of the gross profit margin (fixed and variable costs, profit mark-up), less variable costs not incurred such as delivery costs. The compensation amounts to 30% of the purchase/contract price, unless the parties have agreed otherwise. This is 50% if the customer cancels while he has already been informed that the (partial) delivery can take place.
2. The percentages referred to in paragraph 1 are fixed, unless the entrepreneur can prove that his damage is greater or the customer can demonstrate that the damage is less.
3. A cancellation is preferably made in writing. In the event of a verbal cancellation, the entrepreneur will confirm this in writing.

6. In the event of an unfair commercial practice as referred to in the Unfair Commercial Practices Act, a consumer can dissolve the agreement without costs. This is the case if the consumer has been misled or approached aggressively, for example if the seller has put unreasonably heavy pressure on the consumer when concluding the agreement. The consumer must prove that this was the case.
7. A down payment is the payment of part of the agreed price for a product or a service before the entrepreneur has to provide his consideration. With a deposit, a performance or product is secured or reserved. If a down payment has been made by the customer, he will lose the already paid down payment in the event of cancellation.

ARTICLE 12 – Extra costs, additional work and/or less work
Costs that arise because the customer has failed to make the execution or continuation of the work possible are for the account of the customer. Additional work and/or less work will be settled in fairness. Additional work is understood to mean, among other things: all work and deliveries that are not included in the agreement and that are required by the customer. Less work is understood to mean: the part of the agreement that is not performed with the consent of both parties. Surfaces that cannot be floored, eg columns and recesses and loss of cutting, are no less work. At the request of the customer, the entrepreneur leaves residues with the customer.

ARTICLE 13 – Unenforceability of the agreement due to force majeure
1. If fulfillment of the agreement is temporarily impossible due to a cause that cannot be attributed to one of the parties, the other party will be released from its obligations for that period.

ARTICLE 14 – Conformity and Warranty
1. The delivered product must have the properties that the customer may expect under normal use under the agreement (conformity). This also applies to special use if this was agreed by the parties when the agreement was concluded. If this expectation is not met, the customer is entitled to repair or replacement, dissolution and/or price reduction.
2. The entrepreneur gives a full 2 year warranty on the delivered products, in addition to the legal obligations of paragraph 1. Parties can also agree otherwise in writing. The 2-year warranty does not apply to defects related to use by the customer that does not correspond to the intended purpose. The entrepreneur makes that plausible. The entrepreneur bears the costs of repair resp. replacement, incl. freight and call-out costs; If the defect can be properly repaired, the entrepreneur does not have to replace the product. If the customer has moved abroad, freight and call-out costs will be reimbursed based on the original delivery address.
3. According to the law, the customer must prevent or limit his damage as much as possible.
4. Even after the two-year warranty in paragraph 2, the customer may still have rights under the law (paragraph 1). In that case, the entrepreneur cannot invoke the expiry of this guarantee.
5. The entrepreneur's obligations with regard to conformity and guarantee of paragraphs 1 and 2 are not covered by the down payment scheme. In the event of bankruptcy/suspension of payment/legal debt restructuring of the entrepreneur, the customer can report to the receiver/administrator as a creditor.
6. If the manufacturer of the products gives the entrepreneur a more extensive guarantee, this guarantee also applies to the customer.
7. Warranty provisions are only valid for the use corresponding to the destination, of the products delivered or of the work performed, or for special use if this has been agreed.
8. The customer must behave as a good customer. This means, for example, that the product is properly and adequately maintained and treated.
9. Deviations in colour, wear resistance, structure, etc. may limit or exclude the right to warranty and/or compensation. This is the case if the deviations are acceptable from a technical point of view according to applicable, customary standards or trade practice.
10. Excluded from the warranty of paragraph 2: (disposable) batteries, interchangeable light sources, home accessories and normal wear and tear.

ARTICLE 15 – Liability
The entrepreneur is not liable for damage caused by causes that he did not know or should have known, unless he is liable according to the law or if otherwise agreed between the parties. Those causes can be, for example:
• the development of shrink seams and/or hairline cracks as a result of the gradual loss of building moisture after new construction or renovation;
• the development of discolourations, shrink seams and/or hairline cracks due to the direct action of heat sources such as the sun, central heating pipes and fireplaces;
• too high or too low a humidity percentage in the relevant room and surrounding areas or an extreme change therein;
• an incorrect composition of the intermediate and/or subfloor or an insufficiently flat subfloor, if this has not been installed by the entrepreneur. Before the start of the work, the entrepreneur reports the insufficient level to the customer; • the floor not being permanently dry, provided the entrepreneur has measured the moisture level of the floors in advance and the result was satisfactory.

ARTICLE 16 – Complaints and damage
1. Complaints about the implementation of the agreement or damage to customer property caused by the entrepreneur must be submitted fully and clearly described to the entrepreneur. This should preferably be done in writing and in any case on time.
2.
