RIGHT OF WITHDRAWAL
Our customer has the right to withdraw from the contract without any reason within 14 days. The withdrawal period will expire 14 days after the day you or a by you designated third party, other than the carrier, gets the last good in physical possession.
To exercise the right of withdrawal you must inform us (Maison Lab, Woudstraat 5, 3600 Genk, firstname.lastname@example.org) by an unambiguous statement of your decision to withdraw. You can use the attached model withdraw form but you are not obliged to do so.
To meet the withdrawal deadline it is sufficient to send your communication concerning your exercise of the right of withdrawal before the withdrawal period has expired.
Consequences of withdrawal: If you withdraw from the agreement you will recover all the payments you have made up to that point, including delivery charges (excluding any additional costs resulting from your choice of another type of delivery than the least expensive standard delivery we offer), without delay and in any event no later than 14 days after we have been informed of your decision to withdraw. We will pay you back with the same payment method as the one with which you performed the original transaction, unless you have explicitly agreed otherwise; in any event you will not incur any costs for such repayment.
We may withhold reimbursement until we have received the goods back or you have demonstrated that you have sent back the goods, whichever is the earliest.
You must send the goods back or hand them over to us without delay and in any event no later than 14 days after the day on which you inform us of your decision to withdraw from the contract. You are on time if you send the goods back before the period of 14 days has expired.
During the period we mention in our offer our prices do not change, except for price changes resulting from changes in VAT rates. Our prices include all taxes, VAT and services, so you will never get any unpleasant surprises. However we can decide to also charge the shipping fee on top of the purchase price. In that case we always mention this to you before you place your final order.

A dispute will only be dealt with by the Disputes Committee if the consumer submitted his complaint within a reasonable time to the entrepreneur.
