TERMS AND CONDITIONS IN ENGLISH
This purchase is regulated by the Standard Sales Conditions for Consumer Purchases of Goods over the Internet, given below. Consumer purchases via the Internet are regulated primarily by the Contracts Act, the Consumer Purchases Act, the Marketing Control Act, the Cancellation Act and the E-Commerce Act, and these laws provide consumers with man- datory rights. These laws are available (in Norwegian) at www.lovdata.no. The terms of the contract are not to be understood as a limitation on legal rights, but present the parties’ most important rights and duties in regard to the purchase.
The Sales Conditions have been created and are recommended by the Norwegian Consumer Authority. For a better understanding of these Sales Conditions, see the Consumer Authority’s guidelines.
The contract consists of these Sales Conditions, information given in the ordering solution, and any specially agreed conditions. In the event of a conflict between pieces of information, precedence goes to what has been specially agreed between the parties, as long as this does not conflict with mandatory legislation.
In addition, the contract will be complemented by relevant statutory provisions that regulate the pur- chase of goods between traders and consumers.
The seller is NORWEGIAN KNITTING AS, Magistratbakken 48, 7712 Steinkjer, Norway, email: email@example.com, +4795987690, VAT no:925898635, and is designated in the following as the Seller.
The purchaser is the consumer who places the order, and is designated in the following as the Purchaser.
The stated price for the services is the total price to be paid by the Purchaser. This price includes all taxes and additional costs. The Purchaser shall not be charged for any further costs of which the Seller has not informed the Purchaser before the purchase.
All courses purchased from Norwegian Knitting AS are sold with lifetime access for the Purchaser. There will be no additional fees for the course, and access to the purchased course(s) never expires.
4 Conclusion of contract
The contract is binding for both parties as soon as the Purchaser has sent the order to the Seller.
However, a party is not bound by the contract if there are orthographical or typological errors in the offer from the Seller in the ordering solution of the online shop or in the Purchaser’s order, and the other party realised or should have realised that such an error was present.
The Seller may charge the Purchaser for the service/course from the time the Purchaser signs up/buys access to the course.
If the Purchaser uses a credit or debit card to make the payment, the Seller may hold the funds on the card when the order is placed.
Delivery has occurred once the Purchaser or his/ her representative has received access to the course.
7 Right to cancel
Unless the contract is exempt from the right to cancel, the Purchaser may cancel the order in accordance with the Cancellation Act.
The Purchaser must inform the Seller that he/she will exercise this right within 14 days after the start of the cancellation period. This time limit includes all calendar days. If the period ends on a Saturday, Sunday or public holiday, the period will be extended until the next business day.
The deadline to exercise one’s right to cancel will be seen as met if notice is sent before the end of the cancellation period. The Purchaser has the burden of proof for demonstrating that the right has been asserted, and notice must therefore be submitted in writing (via the cancellation form, email or letter).
8. The cancellation period begins as follows:
- In the purchase of individual services/courses, the cancellation period will begin on the day after the good is/goods are received.
The Seller is obligated to pay back the purchase sum to the Purchaser without undue delay, and no later than 14 days after the Seller received notice on the Purchaser’s decision to exercise the right to cancel. The Seller has the right to retain the repay- ment until it has received the goods from the Pur- chaser, or until the Purchaser has documented that the goods have been sent back.
9 Delays and non-delivery: the Purchaser’s rights and time limit to make a claim
If the Seller does not deliver the service or delivers it late according to the terms of the parties’ contract, and this is not due to the Purchaser or to conditions on the part of the Purchaser, the Purchaser may, in accordance with Chapter 5 of the Consumer Purchases Act, withhold the purchase sum, de- mand performance of the contract, terminate the contract and/or demand compensation from the Seller, according to the relevant circumstances.
For demands of remedy for breach of contract, notice should be given in writing for the purposes of documentation (e.g. by email).
The Purchaser may affirm the purchase and demand performance from the Seller. The Purchaser may not however demand performance if there is a barrier to performance the Seller cannot overcome, or if performance would cause a great disadvantage or expense to the Seller that is out of proportion to the Purchaser’s interest in the performance. Should these obstacles be removed within a reasonable amount of time, however, the Purchaser may demand performance.
The Purchaser loses his/her right to demand performance if he/she waits an unreasonably long time to make the claim.
If the Seller does not deliver the course/service at the time set for delivery, the Purchaser shall call on the Seller to deliver within a reasonable additional time frame for performance. If the seller does not deliver the good within the additional time frame, the Purchaser may cancel the purchase.
The Purchaser may however cancel the purchase immediately if the Seller refuses to deliver the service. This also applies to cases in which delivery at the agreed time was a decisive factor in the conclusion of the contract, or if the Purchaser has informed the Seller that the delivery time is a decisive factor.
The Purchaser may demand compensation for losses incurred as a result of the delay. However, this does not apply to cases in which the Seller can assert that the delay was due to obstacles outside the Seller’s control that could not have reasonably been foreseen at the time the contract was concluded, could not have been avoided or the consequences of which could not have been overcome.
10 Seller’s rights in case of Purchaser’s breach of contract
If the Purchaser does not pay or otherwise fulfil his/her duties according to the contract and/or the law, and this is not due to the Seller or to conditions on the part of the Seller, the Seller may, in accor- dance with the rules in Chapter 9 of the Consumer Purchases Act, withhold the good, demand perfor- mance of the contract, terminate the contract and demand compensation from the Purchaser, accor- ding to the relevant circumstances. The Seller may also, according to the relevant circumstances, charge interest for late payment, a collection fee and a reasonable fee for uncollected goods.
If the Purchaser does not pay, the Seller may affirm the purchase and demand that the Purchaser pay the purchase sum. If the good is not delivered, the Seller will lose its right if it takes an unreasonably long time to make the claim.
Upon significant non-payment breach or any other significant breach by the Purchaser, the Seller may terminate the contract. However, the Seller may not terminate the contract after the purchase sum has been paid. The Seller may also terminate the purchase if the Purchaser does not pay within a reasonable additional time frame for fulfilment set by the Seller.
Interest relating to late payment/collection fee If the Purchaser does not pay the purchase sum specified in the contract, the Seller may charge interest on the purchase sum according to the Act Relating to Interest on Overdue Payments. In cases where payment is not made, the debt may be sent for collection after a warning has been issued, and the Purchaser may then be held responsible for fees according to the Act relating to Debt Collection and Other Debt Recovery.
Warranties given by the Seller or manufacturer give the Purchaser additional rights beyond those mandatory rights he/she has by mandatory law. Thus, a warranty does not imply any limitation on the Purchaser’s right to give notice or make claims in case of delay or defect according to Sections 9 and 10.
13 Personal data
The Seller is the party responsible for handling collected personal data. Unless the Purchaser consents otherwise, the Seller may only obtain and store whatever personal data is necessary for the Seller to complete its duties according to the con- tract. The Purchaser’s personal data shall only be given to others if this is necessary for the Seller to fulfil the contract with the Purchaser, or in cases where this is required by law.
14 Conflict resolution
Claims must be directed to the Seller within a reasonable time frame in accordance with Sections 9 and 10. The parties shall attempt to resolve any disputes out of court. If this is not successful, the Purchaser may contact the Consumer Council of Norway for mediation. The Consumer Council may be reached on (+47) 23 400 500 or at www.forbrukerradet.no
