A. Furniture and related products. You have the right to terminate an agreement concerning the purchase of such a product without stating reasons during a 14-day cooling-off period.
The cooling-off period commences on the date of delivery of the order either to you or to a representative that you have designated and notified us of in advance.
5.3 Handle the product and packaging carefully during the cooling-off period. You may only unpack or use the product if this is necessary to be able to assess whether you wish to keep it. The point of departure here is that you may only handle and inspect the product in the same way that you would be allowed in a shop. You’re only liable for the product’s devaluation that is a consequence of your handling the product other than as permitted in this paragraph.
5.4 You may make use of your right of withdrawal by calling our customer service on 0800 0518080 (availability: Mondays to Fridays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.) or by completing the standard withdrawal form on our Website. We will then immediately send you confirmation of receipt of your withdrawal by e-mail.
5.5 If you make use of your right of withdrawal, you must return the product with all supplied accessories to us undamaged and – if reasonably possible – in the original condition and packaging within 14 days of making use of your right of withdrawal. We kindly request that you complete and enclose the returns label that you received from us at the time of delivery. This speeds up the returns and refund process.
5.6 The risk and the burden of proof for exercising the right of withdrawal correctly and in time rest upon you. The direct costs of returning the product will be born by you.
5.7 If you have made use of your right of withdrawal, we will fully refund the amounts you have already paid, including dispatch costs, within 14 days of receipt of your withdrawal. In case of withdrawal, you will not be liable for more than the cost of returning the products.
5.8 If you exercise your right of withdrawal, all supplementary agreements are legally dissolved.
6. DELIVERY AND RETENTION OF TITLE
6.1 Unless a longer delivery period is agreed, orders will be delivered within no more than 14 days of placing the order to your supplied delivery address. Our transport provider does not make deliveries on Saturdays and Sundays.
6.2 If there is a delay in delivery, if an order cannot be executed or if an order can only be partially executed, you will receive notice thereof within no more than 14 days of placing the order. In that case, you will be entitled to terminate the Agreement without any costs and we will fully refund any amounts that you have already paid within 14 days.
6.3 If delivery of a product you have ordered turns out to be impossible, we will endeavour to offer you a replacement product of comparable or higher quality. You are not obliged to accept this offer and may opt to terminate the Agreement without costs instead, following which we will fully refund the amounts that you have paid within 14 days.
6.4 If our transport provider is unable to deliver your order after two attempts at your stated delivery address, it will leave a message stating where your package is located and how and within which period you can collect the delivery.
6.5 The address that you provided when placing your order serves as the place of delivery. Delivery has taken place and the products are deemed to have been delivered after signature for delivery of the goods at this agreed delivery address.
6.6 Ownership of the products only passes if we have received full payment of all amounts due in relation to the products. Risk of damage in and/or loss of the products passes at the time of delivery to you.

7.2 You must immediately notify us if you discover any inaccuracies in your provided payment details.
7.3 If you pay by credit card, we will carry out a pre-authorisation on that card after receipt of your order so as to guarantee that there are sufficient funds to complete the transaction.

If we do not receive the required authorisation, we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery.
7.4 If you fail to comply with your payment obligations towards Gaia Baby Ltd, we may charge you statutory interest as well as the reasonable costs that Gaia Baby Ltd must incur to still obtain full payment from you, including collection costs. If you fail to comply with your payment obligations, we will moreover be entitled to claim the products delivered to you as our property and demand their return. In that case, you will be liable for the costs of returning the products.
8. CONFORMITY AND WARRANTY
8.1 We guarantee that the products and/or services fulfill the contract, the specifications stated in the offer, the reasonable requirements of reliability and/or serviceability and the statutory stipulations and/or government regulations that existed on the date that the contract was concluded.
