16 OFFER AND SPECIFIC AGREEMENT FOR CUSTOMERS OF LEPAYA SHOP AND OPEN ENROLMENT
16.1 LTD Group publishes the offer on its website, which will contain the following information: a description of the training and of the (possible) educational material that is part of it, the method of execution, starting moment of the training, the admission requirements (if any), the total investment, and a link to these terms and conditions.
16.2 By enrolling, the customer makes it known that he knows and accepts the general terms and conditions of LTD Group. LTD Group sends an electronic or written confirmation to the customer. This confirmation serves as proof of the conclusion of the agreement.
16.3 Unless otherwise agreed in writing, all prices are exclusive of VAT and are in Euros. Payment can be made immediately using any of the available payment methods, or, in case an invoice is requested, be made within 30 days after the invoice date (this is in principle the start date of the training). If the customer fails to pay an invoice on time, then the customer is legally in default. The customer shall then owe an interest of 1% per month. The interest on the amount due will be calculated from the moment the customer is in default until the moment of payment of the full amount due. If the customer is in default in the (timely) fulfilment of his obligations, all reasonable – both judicial and extrajudicial – collection costs shall be borne by the customer. The extrajudicial costs are calculated on the basis of what is customary in the Dutch collection practice.
16.4 For LTD Group the delivery of top quality is a requirement. In everything we do, we strive to achieve this. However, it is of course possible that a customer is not satisfied with something. Filing a complaint can be done by e-mail to email@example.com. All complaints will be treated confidentially. We strive for a response as soon as possible, and will at all times respond within ten working days. If a longer period of time is required to carry out research, the complainant will be informed within ten working days and the delay will be explained. Moreover, an indication will be given of when LTD Group expects to give a definite answer.
16.5 If the complaint is not resolved by mutual agreement, then the customer or LTD Group can turn to the Mediation Commission https://www.mediationhuis.nl/.
16.5a If LTD Group wishes to involve the Mediation Commission, the complainant will first be informed in writing.
16.5b If the complainant wishes to involve the Mediation Commission, this is only possible if the complaint has prior been submitted to LTD Group and this has not led to an appropriate solution. When the customer submits a dispute to the Mediation Commission, LTD Group is bound by this choice. A dispute must be submitted to the Mediation Committee within twelve months after the submission of the complaint to LTD Group.
