Article 2: Object

The terms and conditions of sale in question intend to define the contractual relations between the Seller and the Buyer, as well as all conditions that apply to purchases made via the website of the Seller, whether the Buyer is professional or not.  The acquisition of goods or services through the present site implies the Buyer accepts the present terms and conditions of sale in their entirety.  These terms and conditions of sale take precedence over any other general or particular terms and conditions that weren't explicitly agreed to by the Seller.  The Seller reserves the right to modify the terms and conditions of sale at any given moment.  In that case, the terms and conditions apply that were valid the day of the Buyers order.

Article 3: Properties of the offered products

The quoted products are those that figure in the catalog on the website of the Seller.  Every product is accompanied by a description written by the Seller.  The photographs in the catalog are as truthful as possible, but can't guarantee a perfect similarity to the offered product, especially with regards to colour.  The products and services are offered while stock lasts.  If all or part of the products are unavailable, despite the efforts that were put in, the Seller will notify the Buyer as soon as possible and offer the Buyer the possibility to either wait or cancel the order of the unavailable products free of charge.  Available products will be delivered normally.

Article 4: Price

The prices of the quoted products on the site are listed in terms of euros, including taxes (VAT and other applicable taxes). The Seller reserves the right to modify his prices at any given moment.  Nevertheless, the prices that apply to the order are those that are in effect when the order is confirmed.  The indicated prices don't include the charges for the treatment of the order, transport and delivery, insofar these have place in the geographical areas mentioned hereafter.  The payment is made with Visa, Mastercard or Maestro.  The ordered products remain our exclusive property until the order has been integrally paid for by the Buyer.

Article 5: Geographical areas

The online sale of products and services on the Sellers site is limited to Buyers that reside in Belgium, France, Zwitserland, the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, Germany, Italy, Spain, Sweden, Denmark, Austria, Finland, Poland, Portgual, Ireland, Norway, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom, insofar the requested deliveries have place in these geographical zones.

Article 6: Orders

  • fill in the identification form on which he will indicate all required data or mention his client number, in case he has one;

  • fill in the online order form with all references of the chosen products or services; 

  • verify and validate his order; 

  • realise the payment in accordance with the mentioned conditions; 

  • confirm the order and its payment.  The confirmation of the order implies that the Buyer has taken perfect cognizance of the present terms and conditions of sale and has fully accepted those. The Buyer thereby also renounces the right to let his own or other terms and conditions of sale take precedence.  The totality of given data and the registered confirmation serve as proof of the transaction.  The confirmation serves as the signature and acceptance of the operations that were carried out.  The Seller will inform the Seller of the registered confirmation of the order by e-mail.

Article 7: Right of Revocation

In accordance with the law, the Buyer has the right to notify the Seller within 14 workdays counting from the day of the products delivery or the day of the completion of the service contract that he cancels his purchase, free of charge and without having to give any reasons.  Professional Buyers don't have this Right of Revocation.  Within this time span, the Buyers must notify his intention to cancel the order by sending an e-mail to  and return the delivered product to the head office of Corica SRL at his expense and risk : Rue Marché aux Poulets 49 in 1000 Brussels.  The products must be returned in their original packaging, undamaged and accompanied by all their accessories, the instruction manual as well as the invoice/ original order form.  The returned products may not have been unpacked, unsealed or used in any way.  Products that are incomplete, damaged, spoiled or dirtied by the Buyer will not be taken back.  The Seller pledges to refund eventual payments, excluding shipping fees, within 30 days after having accepted to take back the products.  The Right of Revocation doesn't apply to the sale of perishable goods over the internet.  This legal restriction of the Right of Revocation is justified by the perishable nature of the products and the fact that the Seller can no longer guarantee the products be in good state once they've been delivered.

In case of wrongful return, Corica SRL reserves the right to refuse an ulterior order.

Article 8: Delivery

The deliveries are made at the address as stated on the order form, which can't be elsewhere than in the mentioned geographical area.  The products are transported at the Sellers risk until they have been delivered at the address as specified by the Buyer.  As from that moment, the risk shall pass to the Buyer.

In case non-conformity of any sold product is observed within 2 months following the delivery of the product, the Buyer must immediately notify   the Seller in a precise manner by registered letter.  This warranty only covers non-conformity existing at the time of the delivery of the products.  Neither does the warranty cover flaws or damage due to a wrong use, such as water, oxidation, fall or impact damage, negligence and normal wear.  Reparations carried out by technicians that are not approved by the Seller will also lead to the cancellation of the warranty.  The invoice or order form serve as certificate of warranty and must be conserved by the Buyer in its original form.  If the product is used for non-private purposes, the warranty conditions of the manufacturer/supplier apply.
