- The place of delivery is the address that the consumer makes known to Lederstudio.
- Lederstudio will execute accepted orders with due speed, but no later than 30 days, unless a different delivery period has been agreed. If the delivery is delayed, or if an order cannot or only partially be executed, the consumer will be notified of this no later than 30 days after placing the order. In that case, the consumer has the right to terminate the agreement without costs.
- After dissolution in accordance with the previous paragraph, Lederstudio will immediately repay the amount that the consumer has paid.

Any visible damage to and/or qualitative deficiencies of an article or other deficiency in the delivery must be reported immediately by the Customer to Lederstudio.
The risk due to loss or damage is transferred to the Customer at the time the goods have been physically received by the Customer (or a third party indicated by the Customer that is not the carrier). However, the risk already transfers to the Customer upon delivery to the carrier, if the carrier has been instructed by the Customer to transport the goods and this choice was not offered by Lederstudio.
Article 6: Retention of title
Delivered articles remain the exclusive property of Lederstudio until the moment the Customer pays for the goods in full.
If necessary, the Customer undertakes to inform third parties of the retention of title belonging to Lederstudio, e.g. to anyone who would attempt to seize articles that are not fully paid for.
Article 7: Right of withdrawal
The provisions of this article apply solely to Customers in their capacity as consumers purchasing articles online from Lederstudio.
The Customer has the right to withdraw from this agreement within a period of 14 calendar days without giving reasons.
The right of withdrawal period will expire 14 calendar days after the date when the goods were physically received by the Customer or a third party indicated by the Customer that is not the carrier.
To exercise the right of withdrawal, the Customer must notify Lederstudio (Monnikenwerve 111, B-8000 Brugge – [email protected]) in an unambiguous statement (e.g. in writing by post or e-mail) about their decision to withdraw from the agreement. The Customer may use the attached template withdrawal form, but it is not obligatory.
To comply with the withdrawal period, the Customer must send a notification of their decision to exercise the right of withdrawal before the withdrawal period has expired.
In any event, the Customer has no later than 14 calendar days from the day that they notify Lederstudio of their decision to withdraw from the agreement to send back or hand over the goods to Lederstudio. The Customer is on time if they have sent back the goods before the period of 14 calendar days has expired.
The direct costs for returning the goods shall be borne by the Customer.
If the returned product is reduced in value in any way, Lederstudio is entitled to hold the Customer liable and demand compensation for each depreciation in value of the goods that are due to the Customer’s use of the goods that goes beyond what is necessary in order to determine the nature, characteristics and operation of the goods.
Only articles that are returned in the original packaging, along with all accessories, instructions and invoice or sales receipt can be returned.
If the Customer has requested that the provision of services start during the withdrawal period, the Customer shall pay an amount for the services provided up to the time that the Customer notified us of their withdrawal from the agreement that is proportional to the full completion of the agreement.
If the Customer withdraws from the agreement, Lederstudio shall repay all payments received from the Customer up until that time including standard shipment costs with a maximum of 14 calendar days of the date that Lederstudio was notified by the Customer of their decision to withdraw from the agreement for services. For sales agreements, Lederstudio may wait on the reimbursement until all the goods have been sent back to Lederstudio.
Any additional costs resulting from the Customer choosing another form of delivery other than by the cheapest standard delivery offered by Lederstudio will not be refunded.
Lederstudio shall repay the Customer using the same means of payment as the Customer used in the initial transaction, unless the customer explicitly agreed otherwise. In any case, the Customer will not be charged any costs in connection with such repayment.
The Customer may not exercise the right of withdrawal for:
- service contracts after the provision of service has been completed in its entirety [if the service has started with the explicit prior consent of the Customer and provided that the Customer has acknowledged that they have lost their right of withdrawal upon completion of the service it its entirety].
