Pluk&Proef is, subject to mandatory legislation, not liable for any accidents or damage caused to the customer (or a participant, registered by the customer) during and as a result of following an activity or workshop.

When using materials or consuming food and/or drinks, it is the responsibility of the customer (or the participant, registered by the customer) to inform himself about the composition and/or ingredients to which he/she may be allergic. If required for reasons including health, it is the responsibility of the Customer (or registered participant) to refrain from consuming or using the products offered.

During an activity or workshop, every participant, supervisor, instructor, in short, present is expected to behave respectfully towards the other attendees.

 

If it is established that an attendee is guilty of theft, intentionally causes damage to other persons or things, or behaves improperly, Pluk&Proef reserves the right to remove the participant from the activity or workshop. To this end, if necessary, the police and/or other services will be called in to make the necessary determinations. Damage caused by a participant will be reimbursed to Pluk&Proef on first request.

During activities or workshops where alcohol is served, tasted or consumed, it is the participant's own responsibility to ensure that they do not drink excessively. The participant decides for himself whether he/she is legally allowed to drive a vehicle, if applicable. If a participant is found to be intoxicated, Pluk&Proef is entitled, if necessary, to inform the competent services of this in order to make the necessary determinations..

If there are left overs during any cooking events or tasting events on location determined by Pluk&Proef, the participants are given the opportunity to take these with them. Any transfer of left overs is done at the participant's own risk. Pluk&Proef cannot under any circumstances be held liable for the storage and transport of these left overs, nor for possible damage that arises as a result of these left overs.

It is the responsibility of the enrolling customer to inform any co-registered family members and/or friends of these General Terms and Conditions. Pluk&Proef can at all times hold the customer liable for damage caused by an act or omission of one of the participants registered by the customer in the activity or event.

8. Cancellation of registration by Customer:

Pluk&Proef nevertheless allows the customer to cancel a registration free of charge up to 30 calendar days (20 calendar days in the case of a digital workshop) before the start of the activity or the workshop taking place.

In case of timely cancellation, a refund will be made as follows:

  1. In case of registration for a service from Pluk&Proef's offer:

 

    The refund will be made of the sum paid by the customer for this product. If the customer made use of a promotion, it can              unfortunately no longer be used for a subsequent registration. The cancellation also does not automatically entitle you to                obtain a new, replacement, promotion or validate a previously granted discount.

 

   2. In case of registration via one order for several services. if all services are cancelled, the refund will be made in accordance   

       with point (1).

 

   3. In the event that only part of the services is canceled (in time), the amount to be refunded will be calculated as follows:

 

➢ In the case of a percentage discount, the registration fee of the canceled service, if it was eligible for the discount, will be refunded after settlement of this discount.

If the discount conditions stated a maximum discount amount, the discount amount granted will be distributed proportionally on the services that were eligible for the discount, according to their original price (without discount).

The portion related to the canceled service will be settled before the refund is made. The same settlement takes place when a nominal discount, with or without a maximum amount allocated, has been granted.

➢ In the case of a joint offer where one of the services subscribed for was obtained free of charge, the consequences

     are as follows:

o Cancellation of the free service will not result in a refund.

o Cancellation of the paying service results in the refund of the paid sum.

o The customer is not entitled to receive a replacement promotion.

If the original payment by the customer was made by means of a voucher, Pluk&Proef reserves the right to also repay the balance to be refunded by means of a voucher.

If the cancellation is made untimely and therefore only after 30 calendar days before the start of a long term traject, or after 7 days in the case of a cooking and/or digital workshop, the Customer is not entitled to any refund or to a promotion.

 

In the event of cancellation of the paid service that was linked to obtaining a free service, the registration for the free service will also be canceled immediately without the Customer being entitled to receive a (replacement) promotion or discount.

 

9. Refusal or cancellation of registration by Pluk&Proef:

In case a promo code or discount was applicable to the cancelled service at the time of registration, the Customer will receive a replacement promo code or discount subject to similar conditions, except in case the cancellation was due to force majeure.

 

(2) In case of registration for several services.

If all services are cancelled, the refund will be made in accordance with point (1).

If the discount conditions stated a maximum discount amount, the discount amount granted will be distributed proportionally on the services that were eligible for the discount, according to their original price (without discount).

Except in the event that the cancellation is the result of force majeure, the customer is in that case entitled to a promotion in the amount of the price of the service that was provided free of charge, as applicable at the time of registration. The registration for the paid service remains valid and is therefore followed by the customer.

o Cancellation of the paid service results in the refund of the sum paid for that service. The registration for the free service will be preserved and the service will therefore continue to be tracked by the customer.

10. Delivery of materials:

An online workshop, as well as gardening, may involve the delivery of specific materials to the customer's address.

The fact that Pluk&Proef fails to demand the strict application of one or more of the provisions of these terms and conditions cannot be regarded as a tacit waiver of its rights and does not prevent it from demanding strict compliance at a later date.

 

Pluk&Proef reserves the right at all times to make changes to these general terms and conditions. On current agreements, however, the general terms and conditions that were applicable at the time of the conclusion of the agreement continue to apply.
