1. Purpose

The purpose of these general terms and conditions of use (« T&Cs ») is to specify the terms under which the website (the « Site ») is made available and to define the conditions for accessing and using the Site by people viewing it (« Users »). They are not intended to define the terms that apply to orders for products presented on the Site. Product orders are governed by Globall Concept’s general terms and conditions of sale, which are available here.

The Site is managed by Globall Concept s.a., with its registered office at Rue Buisson aux Loups 7, 1400 Nivelles, Belgium, registered with the Banque-Carrefour des Entreprises under the number 0457.698.161 (contact email address: [email protected]).

The Site provides Users with free access to the information presented on the Site. All the costs borne by Users to access the Site (computer equipment, software, internet connection etc.) are their own responsibility.

The Site is normally accessible to Users at all times. However, access may be interrupted due to technical maintenance without prior notice. The contents of the Site may change at any time.

The use of the Site implies full acceptance of these T&Cs. These T&Cs may be modified or expanded at any time, and Users of the Site are therefore invited to consult them regularly.

2. Intellectual property

The trademarks, logos, symbols and all the contents of the Site (text, images, sounds etc.) are protected by the relevant intellectual property rights. The contents and layout of the Site are protected by copyright. The products presented are protected by copyright and/or design rights. Signs and names may be protected by trademark rights. No licence is granted to these rights.

Users must therefore request Globall Concept’s permission in advance for any reproduction, publication or adaptation of elements taken from the Site, unless legal exceptions apply. Users undertake not to use content from the Site for commercial and/or advertising purposes.

Any reproduction and/or public communication of all or part of the Site by any means whatsoever without the express permission of Globall Concept thus constitutes an offence under the Belgian Code of Economic Law (unless legal exceptions apply). If a legal exception applies, the source must generally be cited.

3. Information presented on the Site

Globall Concept undertakes only to publish correct and up-to-date information on the Site. However, Globall Concept cannot guarantee that the Site is free of defects, errors or omissions or that the information presented is still valid.

The fact that products are presented on the Site does not necessarily mean they are available to order.

In addition, the information on the Site is presented as a guide only and has no contractual value. This is particularly true of representations of products and all the information about them (such as size, light output, electrical power supply requirements, price or any other characteristic). Information about products is not intended to be exhaustive.

Consequently, Users should not base particular expectations on this information (such as being able to procure products from Globall Concept or use them for a specific purpose) or make any commitments to third parties (such as a commitment to procure for them a particular product presented on the Site). Globall Concept cannot be held liable for the User’s interpretation and use of the information on the Site.

If a User is interested in a product, they are responsible for seeking more information about the product in question from Globall Concept.

The Site has no facility for purchasing the products presented – product orders require Users to contact Globall Concept to request a quotation for the product in question. The information in a quotation always takes precedence over any information presented on the Site.

Globall Concept can never be held liable for the information presented on other sites to which the Site may link or in documentation made available on the Site that comes from third parties (such as suppliers). 

4. Site security

Globall Concept regularly updates the engine used to publish the Site. However, Globall Concept cannot be held liable for any viruses or other malware that may infect computers or other equipment belonging to Users following their use of the Site.

5. Hyperlinks

Hyperlinks may be presented on the Site. Users are informed that clicking these links may lead to pages outside the Site. It is up to Users to check whether they are still on the Site. Globall Concept has no control over pages that are not part of the Site and can never be held liable for their contents.

6. Cookies

Users are informed that a cookie may be installed automatically in their browser when they visit the Site.

Cookies are small files that are stored temporarily on the hard disk of the User’s computer.  The Site only uses cookies that are necessary for the Site’s operation and the transmission of information over the internet.
