General Terms

1. Realisation and acceptance of an agreement

In this agreement the user will find the contractual rules regarding a) the use of online parapharmacy VitaZita and b) the orders which the user is currently considering to place through VitaZita.

By simply visiting and consulting VitaZita or by placing an order through VitaZita, the user agrees to the contents and each time a new agreement will be made.

VitaZita also maintains the right to modify the contractual clauses, with which the publication on the site applies as notification of the change. The further use of the website will be considered as an acceptance of the modified terms.

VitaZita maintains the right to ask for additional information for the safety and security of the customer and if there is a lack hereof the execution of the order can be refused. Also, if the order shows that the purchaser has the intent to resell the products, VitaZita can refuse to execute the order.

Other conditions (e.g. those of the purchaser) will therefore never apply, unless VitaZita prior and written consented to the abnormal condition(s).

The user also acknowledges that by placing an order, he unconditionally accepts the terms and conditions. The validation of an order is thus an acceptance of the general terms and conditions.

By the acceptance of the agreement, the user acknowledges that he a) previously had the possibility to read - prior to its acceptance - the agreement b) if necessary, to negotiate the content, clause by clause and c) to print or to store them.

The user accepts that the evidence of his prior inspection and aforementioned negotiation by VitaZita can be delivered by the acceptance of the agreement by the user.

In case of (suspected) unlawful or forbidden use, VitaZita is allowed to delete the user's registration, unabated the right of VitaZita to impose liability on the user.


5. Important warning prior to ordering

5.1 The information provided by VitaZita is composed with the utmost care and regularly checked and updated, but is purely informative. It will never replace a diagnosis or advice, because VitaZita can't be aware of the full medical history of each user. The packaging and the information on the packaging of the products that we sell through our websites are in French and Dutch.

5.2 VitaZita keeps information about the previous orders of a user, but this information is only used for logistical reasons (replenishing the stock for example). The user should not assume that the history of his orders, will lead to an automatic warning.

5.3 If the user is unsure about the suitability of a particular product, VitaZita formally recommends to not order the product, to cancel the order of the product or - if it has already been delivered -to not use the product (further), without having consulted an expert doctor first.

5.4 VitaZita emphasises that the legal and deontological rules can result in the halt of a placed order, if the order - in the opinion of VitaZita - is not in accordance with the aforementioned rules.

5.5 The packaging and the information on the packaging of the products that we sell through our websites are in French and Dutch. If the delivery address of your order is outside Belgium, The Netherlands or France the packaging and the information on the packaging shall not be in the official language(s) of your country. If you order on our websites, you agree with this. We shall do our best to publish product information in different languages on our websites. We invite you to contact our customer care service if you have any further questions.


6. Order

6.1 All the information that the client sends to VitaZita (input of data inherent to the order) is binding. VitaZita can in no way be held responsible for any erroneous entry of destination information or health information. VitaZita can also not be held responsible for delays concerning the delivery or the inability to deliver ordered products.

6.2 The automatic registration systems naturally offer a proof of the contents and date of the order.

6.3 After receiving the application for ordering VitaZita confirms to the client the acceptance of the order by sending a confirmation to the email address that the client has communicated when registering his order. The sale will be completed no earlier than the date of dispatch of the confirmation of the order.

6.4 In general and without further explanation needed, VitaZita reserves the right to refuse or cancel any order, including the case of payment problems with the order in question or a dispute concerning the payment of a previous order.

6.5 The order is only final once a) VitaZita has accepted this and b) the client has paid the full amount including postage to VitaZita, in accordance with the designated payment method.

6.6 The majority of products are in stock. If an ordered product is not available or not immediately in stock, VitaZita will inform the client via email about the delay of the delivery. If the client does not agree with the delay, he may modify or cancel his order.


7. Price

7.1 The price is always in Euros and VAT included. The price listed on the product sheet does not correspond with the costs related to transportation.

7.2 The price mentioned in the order confirmation is the final price and expresses all associated costs including VAT. That price includes the price of goods, the handling costs, packaging costs and storage of the products and the transport costs.

7.3 VitaZita reserves the right to change the price at any time, but the products are billed based on the prevailing rates at time of registration of the orders.


8. Payment

8.1 The price of the goods is payable by a cash payment or by one of the resources presented on the day of order.

8.2 The protection against fraudulent use of the means of payment used for the transaction, particularly as a result of piracy against possible disputes of payment of money orders is assured by the company Ogone.

8.3 The order validated by the client is not effective until the institution for the secured bank payment and the company Ogone have given their agreement on the implementation of the transaction. In case of refusal of the institution for the secured bank payment or of the company Ogone, the order will be canceled automatically and the client will be notified via email.

8.4 The information about the order is part of an automated processing of data for which Ogone is responsible. This automated data processing aims to fight against bank card fraud. Ogone and VitaZita are the data receivers in relation to the order. The absence of data in relation to the order prevents the realisation and analysis of the transaction. In the event of fraudulent use of a bank card, a false statement or an anomaly, the data in relation to the corresponding order and the non-payment can be subjected to an intake into a file of payment incident.


9. Delivery

9.1 The deliveries are made to the specified delivery address, after confirmation of the order by VitaZita and acceptance of payment by the institution entrusted with the transaction, within 2 working days for orders placed within Belgium or The Netherlands.

9.2 By placing an order, the client commits himself to the settlement of reception of the goods, all taxes, duties and other current and future costs due to the title of delivery of the ordered goods. The solidary liability of the Vitazita can not apply in that respect.

9.3 The deliveries are mainly made by DPD in all lands, except France. Deliveries in France are usually made by Colissimo.

VitaZita maintains the right to use Exapaq (via DPD) as an alternative for Colissimo. The rates of delivery and time are available on uk.vitazita.com/clientservice/delivery/. No compensation can be claimed from VitaZita or from the carrier by the client in case of late delivery.

9.4 Upon reception of the ordered goods, the customer or the recipient must check the good condition of the delivered goods and inspect the terms of use and instructions that were provided to him. Assuming that one or more of the ordered products is defective or damaged, the customer or the recipient must notify the carrier of the defect immediately at the time of delivery.

9.5 If the package is not received despite several passages of the carrier (maximum 3 passages), it is then returned to VitaZita and the recipient gets notified via email. An additional delivery may be requested by the client, but he will bear the costs of this (even if the first shipment was free). When receiving communication of non-reception of an order, VitaZita will take into account the data obtained by DPD regarding the delivery. If these tracking data indicate reception of the package, there can be no compensation measure expected from VitaZita.

9.6 The buyer must inspect the delivered goods immediately upon reception. If the supplied goods do not correspond exactly with the order, present a defect (a crack for example) or are incomplete, the buyer must immediately inform VitaZita via email.

9.7 Clients or recipients of the goods shall refrain from any partial or full resale.


10. Right of Withdrawal

10.2 If the goods are sent to VitaZita under the right conditions and within the right time, VitaZita will return the payments made by the client, and this without costs. If the delivery costs were initially borne by VitaZita (commanded by an amount which led to "free shipping" or in the event of promotion), then those costs will be deducted from the amount to be repaid by the client. The restitution intervenes in a time period of maximum 14 days, starting from the day on which VitaZita received the merchandise.
