2. Area of application
These general terms and conditions are applicable to all agreements and to all legal relationships in which Outspot is the selling party.
Prior to the distance contract being concluded, the text of these general terms and conditions is made available to the consumer. Should such be reasonably possible, it shall be stated prior to the distance contract being concluded that the general terms and conditions are available for perusal at the company and that they shall be sent to the consumer as soon as possible at the request of the consumer. The general terms and conditions can also be saved by the consumer at any time as PDF.
If the distance contract is concluded electronically then, in deviation from the previous paragraph and prior to the distance contract being concluded, the text of these general terms and conditions can be made electronically available to the consumer in such a manner that they can be easily saved on a durable medium. Where such is not reasonably possible it shall be indicated prior to the distance contract being concluded where the general terms and conditions can be electronically perused and that they shall be sent to the consumer at the consumer’s request electronically or by another manner, free of charge.
In the event that, over and above these general terms and conditions, other specific product or services conditions are applicable, then the second and third paragraphs apply by analogy and the consumer can, in the event of conflicting general terms and conditions, always invoke the applicable provision that is most favourable to him/her.
Outspot is not obliged to fulfil an order nor to compensate any damage suffered by the buyer when it, in presenting the item, has committed an error in the formulation of its properties or in stating its price and i) it ought to have been clear to the buyer that in the case in question a typesetting question was at issue, or ii) when the buyer could not reasonably have relied on Outspot being able to, under the given circumstances, supply that item with those properties at that price or that it could have done so.
4. Safe payments
If the contract is concluded electronically, Outspot takes appropriate technical and organisational measures to secure the electronic transfer of data and it provides a safe web environment. Where the consumer is able to pay electronically, Outspot shall ensure that there are appropriate safety measures in place in that respect.
Outspot offers a range of ways to pay electronically and safely through the payment platform Ogone.
5. The consumer’s rights
All rights remain under the responsibility of the advertiser. Outspot acts solely as a transaction and marketing channel. In the event of any issues or defects, you can contact the advertiser directly, who shall be responsible for repairs, replacements or compensation, in accordance with your rights.
You have the right to inform the company that you are declining the purchase without being required to pay a penalty or to state your reasons within fourteen calendar days as of the day following the day of the delivery of the item or the conclusion of the services agreement, being the day following the day on which you received your ordered voucher by email.
All requests to cancel the purchase must be made in writing to Outspot (Confinity NV) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can use the withdrawal form to do this.
For some promotional offers there is even a money-back guarantee for up to 6 months after purchase. Click here for further information .
6.2 Exceptions to the right of withdrawal
6.2.1 The right of withdrawal does not apply to personalised products made by the supplier according to your specifications (for example, where your name is stated on a product). The right of withdrawal is likewise not applicable to trips booked online and to tickets for events, concerts, festivals or other such occasions that entail one or more fixed dates.
6.2.2 In the following cases the right of withdrawal is also not applicable. Products that are:
made according to your specifications or that are clearly intended for a specific person;
perishable or that have a limited shelf life;
not suitable for being returned due to health or hygiene reasons and which were unsealed after delivery;
the supply of goods which are, after delivery, according to their nature, inseparably mixed with other items;
the supply of alcoholic beverages, the price of which has been agreed upon at the time of the conclusion of the sales contract, the delivery of which can only take place after 30 days and the actual value of which is dependent on fluctuations in the market which cannot be controlled by the company;
contracts where you have specifically requested a visit from the company for the purpose of carrying out urgent repairs or maintenance. If, on the occasion of such a visit, the company provides services in addition to those specifically requested by the consumer or goods other than replacement parts necessarily used in carrying out the maintenance or in making the repairs, the right of withdrawal shall apply to those additional services or goods;
the supply of sealed audio or sealed video recordings or sealed computer software which were unsealed after delivery;
the supply of a newspaper, periodical or magazine with the exception of subscription contracts for the supply of such publications;
contracts concluded at a public auction;

the supply of digital content which is not supplied on a tangible medium if the contract performance has begun with the consumer’s prior express consent and his acknowledgment that he thereby loses his/her right of withdrawal;
- contracts for betting and lottery services.
6.3. Refunds during the withdrawal period
The refund shall be performed within 14 days of the right of withdrawal being exercised, with such for a sum that is equal to the sum paid for the purchase of the voucher. Refund payments may be postponed until Outspot has received your goods or until you have provided proof of them being shipped.
Outspot is required by law to comply with a refund period of 14 days for most promotional campaigns. However, within the context of Outspot’s 100% money-back guarantee, we guarantee a 100% refund for up to 6 months after purchase. This can be done by sending a request by letter or email. Enclose the voucher and a copy of your identity card.
This guarantee does not apply to tickets for events, concerts and festivals or trips/other such occasions that entail one or more fixed dates. The guarantee does not apply to the delivery of products either. The guarantee is always clearly stated in the special offers on the website (see the 6 months money-back guarantee). Please note: where the voucher is reserved, used or has expired, the guarantee is void.
Please note: If the purchase has been paid for (in part) with a coupon, the full sum is reimbursed in the form of a coupon. Coupons cannot be combined.
