Article 2. Scope and subject of the Terms and Conditions of Use

(1) These Terms and Conditions of Use apply to all Users of The Internet Portal.

(3) The Internet Portal has been created for use in Belgium and pursuant to Belgian legislation. That is why we do not accept any liability for Use by users in other countries.

Article 3. Content and availability of The Internet Portal, products

(1) While we make a reasonable effort to amend the information (including prices) available on The Internet Portal from time to time, we provide no explicit or implicit guarantee that the content of The Internet Portal is accurate, complete and up to date. The content of The Internet Portal could become outdated at any time and can, without us being obliged to do so, be amended at any time. We moreover have the right to, at our discretion, limit, remove or temporarily or permanently stop the publication of (parts) of The Internet Portal.

(2) The Internet Portal can only be used within the context of the current state of the art. Disruptions to the power supply or the delivery network, hardware and software issues, capacity shortfalls and safety or maintenance-related interruptions could affect the scope of use. We do not guarantee that The Internet Portal can be accessed continuously in full, nor can we be held liable therefor.

(3) We also do not guarantee that The Internet Portal is virus-free. Every User is obliged, for his/her own protection and for the protection of The Internet Portal, to adopt suitable security measures when Using The Internet Portal and/or downloading materials. You are likewise obliged to ensure that all parties that have access to The Internet Portal through your internet connection are aware of these Terms and Conditions of Use (and of other applicable general terms and conditions) and that they comply therewith.

(4) The presentation and configuration options of our products on The Internet Portal do not constitute a binding offer to our customers. They are rather an invitation to the User to request a definitive quote. The tool tips (i.e. help options) that can be called up in the configurator pertain to the products. They do not replace advice on whether the product concerned is suitable for the use planned by the User. The User is asked to contact one of our specialist staff for that purpose.

Article 4. Registration, activation

(1) Some parts of The Internet Portal can only be accessed by Registered Users. Moreover, permission is required to access other parts of The Internet Portal, which means that those parts are only accessible for Users that we have approved.

(2) A User can apply to be Registered by email addressed to Nord, stating his/her name, email address and the password he/she has chosen and which can only be viewed by the User. The User will then be sent, to the email address he/she provided, a confirmation email containing a confirmation link. Once the User clicks on that confirmation link, he/she can use the password-protected part of The Internet Portal as a Registered User. All details provided by the User must be accurate and up to date: the User must forthwith inform us of any changes thereto. All data provided or collected within this context shall be used solely in accordance with the Privacy Policy of Nord, which can be viewed at https://www.nord.com/cms/en/global/privacy_policy.jsp .

(3) The User is not automatically entitled to be registered. We furthermore reserve the right to revoke Registration at any time. This could be the case, for example, if we determine that the User provided incomplete or inaccurate details required for Registration, violates the Terms and Conditions of Use or is no longer entitled to Use of The Internet Portal. On these grounds we reserve the right to verify the right of use every twelve months by sending a new confirmation email.

(4) The Registered User must keep his/her login details, in particular the password, confidential and not provide them to third parties. We reserve the right to block Registered Users and/or passwords if, in our view, these Terms and Conditions of Use are not complied with. If you believe that a third party has access to your login details and/or password, please inform us immediately by emailing belgium@nord.com .

A completed quote request is saved in your shopping basket when you click on the “Save and compile quote” button. Quote requests compiled in this manner are not binding and in no sense result in any obligations on the part of any agreement.

(5) After the order is placed the Registered and Activated User receives an automatically-generated email that confirms receipt of the order and states the details provided (confirmation of receipt).

A contract confirmation only comes into being when an order confirmation is sent or the ordered products are delivered within 30 days, at the option of Nord.

(6) The text of the contract remains stored after the contract is concluded and can be accessed by the Registered and Activated User.
