Consequently, by accessing and using the www.yakacompany.com website, the User agrees to respect all the conditions of use described below. The user is informed that these conditions may be updated at any time. Therefore, they should consult this page regularly to be aware of any changes that may be made.

Any handicapped person, in particular in the sense of article 1123 and following of the Civil Code, cannot in any case make purchases on the present site.

IN ARTICLE 2 – ORDERING

The products offered for sale on the www.yakacompany.com website are the YaKa, an innovative and patented product, a universal document holder that adapts to all the files commonly available in the world.

The YaKa can be adapted to all files with a height of 4 cm to 8 cm.

The YaKa brand is a registered trademark. Any theft and unauthorized use of the said mark will be prosecuted before the competent courts.

The characteristics of the YaKa are predefined in the most complete way possible on the www.yakacompany.com website on the product website (characters, illustration photos, descriptions, etc.), which allows the user to see the essential characteristics of the YaKa he/she is ordering before the final order. The User acknowledges that his acceptance is made in consideration of these descriptions. Any dispute concerning the nature of the article must refer to the product description.

The ordering process is as follows:

  • Selection of items and their essential characteristics ;
  • Add to cart ;
  • Confirm the contents of the basket;
  • Login to yakacompany.com, if the User has not already logged in;
  • Choice of delivery method ;
  • Choice of payment method and acceptance of terms and conditions ;
  • Confirmation of payment ;

During these different stages, the User can view the details of his order and its total price as well as correct any errors, before confirming the order.

Confirmation of the order implies acceptance of these conditions of sale, recognition that the User has full knowledge of them, and a waiver of any other conditions. All the data provided during the order and the confirmation of the latter are proof of the transaction.

Once the order is confirmed on the site, the User acknowledges that its acceptance is a firm and irrevocable commitment: the sale is considered as complete, and its price is immediately payable by the User. The User then has no right of rectification, exchange or return.

YaKa will then send an e-mail confirming the order. This e-mail only confirms the receipt of the order by YaKa.

Once the order is confirmed, the manufacturing time for some YaKa models is about 4 to 6 weeks. The YaKa company sends an information e-mail to the user when his YaKa is completed. None of these e-mails shall constitute acceptance of the order. No sales contract is formed between the parties until YaKa has sent an e-mail confirmation that the ordered products have been shipped to the user, and only the products listed in the shipping confirmation e-mail are subject to said contract.

YaKa reserves the right to cancel or refuse any order from a user with whom there is a dispute regarding the payment of a previous order, or who presents a risk of any kind.

YaKa commits itself to honouring orders received on its website only within the limits of available stocks. In the event of unavailability of one or more items ordered, the company undertakes to inform the User as soon as possible and, if necessary, to reimburse him/her within 45 days of payment of the sums paid. The User’s order will then be automatically cancelled. If an e-mail informing the User of the production time has been sent to keep him informed of the approximate delivery time, and if no cancellation of the order has been sent to contact@yakacompany.com , the order and delivery will be carried out as soon as the YaKa is produced.

CLAUSE 3 – PRICES CLAUSE 3 CLAUSE 3 – PRICES

The order will be processed upon receipt of Ingenico Payment Services’ or PayPal’s approval, in accordance with the procedure described in clause 4.

An electronic invoice can be issued by the site. In this case, the user must specify the e-mail address to which the invoice is to be sent.

CLAUSE 4 – METHODS OF PAYMENT

The site has chosen to receive payments by credit card via the secure payment system Ingenico Payment Services, which encrypts all information relating to the use of the card during the online payment transaction via the site.

The following cards are accepted: Visa, MasterCard or American Express. The online payment page asks the user to enter the card number, expiration date, and security code (3-digit number on the back of the card).

The site cannot be held responsible for the consequences of the use (fraudulent or otherwise) of the credit card that may be made by third parties, including through intercepted messages.

Once the order is completed, the User is redirected to the secure site of Ingenico Payment Services for the full payment transaction. This mechanism guarantees the confidentiality of payment data (especially credit card numbers), as the site never sees the user’s credit card number, which the financial institution receives in encrypted form. The site receives a certificate issued by Verisign, which confirms the real existence of Ingenico Payment Services and the use of an SSL certificate for the encoding of confidential data.

Once the payment has been accepted and confirmed, Ingenico Payment Services will proceed to verify and execute the payment.

CLAUSE 5 – RISKS OF OWNERSHIP

The transfer of ownership of the product takes place only after full payment of the price of the product, regardless of its delivery date.

The transfer of risks takes place at the time of delivery of the product to the User, if the latter is a private individual (consumer within the meaning of the Belgian law of 6 April 2010 on market practices and consumer protection).

In the case of a sale to a professional, the risk of loss is transferred to that person as soon as the package is handed over to the carrier.

The date indicated on the delivery document is valid proof of the delivery date.
