2. Order and execution of the agreement
- On the Website you can buy the Bold Smart Cylinder. Our ordering process gives you the opportunity to check and adjust any errors before you place your final order. You can select the Bold Smart Cylinder by clicking on the [BUY] button and then the [IN SHOPING CART] button. You can also remove selected products from your shopping cart and replace them by pressing the [X] button or adjust the number of products shown in the shopping cart. Please carefully check your order and the information you have provided before placing your order. By clicking on the [Place order] button, you are making a binding offer to buy.
- Our receipt of your order will be confirmed by an automatic e-mail immediately after placing the order; this does not imply acceptance of the contract. We will accept your order by sending you a separate order confirmation by e-mail or by shipping the products. We aim to do this as soon as possible. Bold has the right to refuse orders without giving any reason, especially if the product ordered is no longer available.
- Bold strives to ship your ordered products as soon as possible. If you place your order before 9pm (GMT +1) on a working day, we will strive to ship it the same working day, provided the products are in stock. If you order after 9pm (GMT +1) on a working day, we will strive to ship your order the next working day.
- If Bold does not have all the products you have ordered in stock, Bold may choose to deliver your order in parts. Any terms such as delivery terms or the revocation period only start to run once the last partial delivery has taken place.
- If your order cannot be delivered to you due to circumstances attributable to you (e.g. providing an incorrect address), Bold may cancel your order within 30 days of the last attempt. Or Bold can deliver your order to a designated collection point so that you can collect the product yourself. You will be informed of the delivery status by means of e-mail updates. If we cancel your order, payments made by you will be refunded to you without undue delay.
- Bold may cancel your order if our suppliers do not deliver your ordered products to us, without this being due to, caused by or foreseeable for us. If this situation occurs, we will inform you thereof. We will also refund any payments already made without undue delay.

- The prices shown on the Website are in euros including VAT and all other price components such as packaging, unless explicitly stated otherwise. Any shipping costs are also displayed on the Website and are also shown before placing your order.

Right of withdrawal
You have the right to withdraw from the contract within a period of 30 days without giving reasons.

In order to exercise the right of withdrawal, you must inform us
Bold Security Technology B.V.
Proostwetering 41, 3543AC Utrecht

of your decision to withdraw from this contract by an unequivocal statement (e.g. a letter sent by post, fax or e-mail). You may use the attached model withdrawal form, but it is not obligatory.
You can also fill in and submit the model revocation form or other clearly worded declaration electronically via our website https://bold.nl/en/retourneren/. If you make use of this option, we will immediately send you an acknowledgement of receipt of your revocation on a durable medium (e.g. e-mail).
To meet the withdrawal deadline, it is sufficient for you to send your communication concerning your exercise of the right of withdrawal before the withdrawal period has expired.
Effects of withdrawal
If you withdraw from this contract, we shall reimburse to you all payments received from you, including the costs of delivery (with the exception of the supplementary costs resulting from your choice of a type of delivery other than the least expensive type of standard delivery offered by us), without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days from the day on which we are informed about your decision to withdraw from this contract. We will carry out such reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction, unless you have expressly agreed otherwise; in any event, you will not incur any fees as a result of such reimbursement. We may withhold reimbursement until we have received the goods back or you have supplied evidence of having sent back the goods, whichever is the earliest.
You shall send back the goods by means of the return label provided, without undue delay and in any event not later than 30 days from the day on which you communicate your withdrawal from this contract to us. Only in this way will we bear the cost of returning the goods. The deadline is met if you send back the goods before the period of 30 days has expired.
You are only liable for any diminished value of the goods resulting from the handling other than what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the goods.
