The weight corresponding to fresh products presented as corresponding to the weight of our dried products is given as an indication only and is in no way binding on SUPERSEC SA since the weights indicated are specific to the category of the product, the species, the drying process,… Consequently, the only commercial reference weight to be considered is that of the dry product.
Automatic recording systems are considered to show proof of the nature, content and date of the order. SUPERSEC SA confirms acceptance of the order to the client at the e-mail address that the client has communicated, or by postal address or telephone if there is no e-mail address.

The information given by the buyer at the time the order is placed is binding on the buyer: in the event of an error in the particulars of the addressee, the seller cannot be held responsible for the impossibility to deliver the product.
For reasons of availability, SUPERSEC SA can propose to the client either to postpone delivery until the missing article is available, to replace the missing article by an article in the same category, or to cancel the request for the missing article. Under no circumstances will a single order be shipped in several parts. If the client prefers two places of delivery, he should place two orders, with delivery costs associated with each order. After agreeing on the content of the order and confirming it, SUPERSEC SA undertakes to deliver all references ordered to the client as quickly as possible.

In the event of difficulties in the application of this contract, the buyer has the possibility to seek an amicable solution, before any legal action, particularly with the help of a professional association in the field, a consumer association or any other adviser of his choice. It is recalled that seeking an amicable solution does not interrupt the « brief period » of the legal guarantee, nor the duration of the contractual guarantee. It is recalled that as a general rule, and subject to the appreciation of the Courts, respect of the provisions of this contract concerning the contractual guarantee supposes that the buyer has met his financial commitments to the seller. Complaints or challenges will always be handled with attentive care – the person who takes the trouble to describe the situation is always presumed to be in good faith. In the event of a dispute, the client shall contact the company in priority to obtain an amicable solution. Failing that, the Commercial Court of Brussels has sole jurisdiction.
