If the Company offers the User a personalized product or service, the User will sign the agreed upon quotation and adhere to the specific payment plan that is laid out in aforementioned quotation.
Living in Brussels has a strict no refund policy on digital products and online courses.
Purchase of digital goods (ebooks, downloads etc.)
All digital products are non-refundable once they have been downloaded by the customer. If you are suspected of fraud or piracy as flagged by your payment account, we reserve the right to immediately remove your access to our content.
Purchase and return of physical goods
As a consumer, under Belgian law, you are entitled to the statutory withdrawal period of 14 calendar days after purchasing physical goods. The period starts on the day after the delivery of the goods.
You have the right to inspect and try on the goods received as you would in the store. You may be held liable for any diminished value of the goods resulting from handling the goods beyond what is necessary to establish the characteristics and verify the proper functioning of the goods.
In case a physical product arrives in a damaged state, you should contact firstname.lastname@example.org immediately and describe the problem and add pictures. In case Living in Brussels deems the damage as not due to your negligence or fault, the product will be replaced with the same product, or, in case this is not an option due to stock shortage, refund the purchase.
If you make use of your right of withdrawal, you should cancel your order (if it has not yet shipped), or return the item to receive a refund. In case the item is damaged, a full refund will not be issued.
If you make use of the right of withdrawal, you must return the goods received as soon as possible and no later than 14 days after you have informed the seller of your decision to cancel the purchase. You pay the costs of returning the goods, unless Living in Brussels has agreed to take them on.
Purchase of consulting services
As a consumer, under Belgian law, you are entitled to the statutory withdrawal period of 14 calendar days after booking a consultancy meeting. The period starts on the day after paying for the consultancy meeting, in as far as the meeting itself has not taken place yet. Once the consultancy meeting has taken place, it becomes non refundable.
