These general sales conditions exclude all general conditions mentioned in documents issued by the customer, even if those documents have a later date, and take precedence over any other previous version.
STAY FOCUS reserves the right to change these general sales conditions at any time without personally notifying every customer. The customer is therefore requested to come and consult the site regularly, in order to stay informed of the most recent changes. The general sales conditions applicable to each order shall be those in force at the time of placing the order.
These general sales conditions apply for the entire period during which products offered for sale are made available online by STAY FOCUS.
2 - Order
Any order may be made only via the Internet on this site.
The essential features of each article are described on the appropriate pages of the site.
The offers are valid as soon as they are presented on the site and are available while stocks last, unless otherwise indicated on the site. These offers shall not be binding and are subject to purchase.
The customer is expressly informed that every order involves the prior commitment to pay the said order. The customer will be systematically reminded of this payment obligation at the time of validating his or her order.
STAY FOCUS does not accept orders :
The order may only be registered on the site if the customer has been clearly identified by entering his or her e-mail address and password.
New customers who have never ordered from the site must create an account previous to any order by entering their surnames, first names, postal address and e-mail, together with a (personal and confidential) password containing from 4 to 10 characters. The customer undertakes to provide true and accurate information and to inform STAY FOCUS of any change concerning them.
The customer may change his shopping basket at any time throughout the order process, until final validation which will finalise the sales agreement between STAY FOCUS and the customer.
By proceeding with an order, the customer irrevocably accepts that the input of data after the insertion of his or her identifier and password shall be deemed proof of his or her identity and the terms and conditions of shipment, delivery and invoicing.
As soon as his or her order has been registered, detailed acknowledgement of receipt of the order shall be sent to the customer’s e-mail address. STAY FOCUS recommends that the customer should keep a paper or electronic record of the information contained in that order confirmation.
Each order may not exceed an amount of EUR sur le site Stay Focus 500 Inclusive of all taxes. The customer my contact us directly if he or she wishes to order for an amount greater than 500 euro, by e-mail : firstname.lastname@example.org or by fax : 02/384.13.47
STAY FOCUS reserves the right to refuse or cancel any order from a customer with whom there might be a dispute concerning payment of a previous order, in the event of suspicion of fraudulent intent, if products are improperly returned, if it is stated that a person provides fictitious data on several occasions, if STAY FOCUS states an abnormal order quantity – possibly in several purchase orders – which exceeds a strictly personal use, with these mentioned by way of illustration.
If an order is not accepted by STAY FOCUS, STAY FOCUS notifies the customer of it by electronic mail within 30 days of receipt of the order.
3 - Selling price – Promotional campaigns
Prices are indicated in euro inclusive of all taxes, exclusive of shipping, packing and delivery expenses.
They take account of VAT applicable on the day of the order subject to possible error or a change in the VAT rate.
The price does not include costs related to the use of means of communication. The customer bears the cost of any necessary equipment, including a computer and its accessories necessary for establishing a connection, together with the cost of all telecommunication service fees related to such access.
STAY FOCUS reserves the right to apply the correct price on the basis of the prices in force at the time of registration of the customer’s order or to cancel an order unilaterally, if it appears that the indicated price and / or the description of the product(s) together with any related options are wrongly indicated on the website as a result of technical failure or human error.
STAY FOCUS reserves the possibility of conducting promotional campaigns over given periods.
The product offers proposed on the site are valid only within the limit of available stocks.
Information about the availability of products is provided at the time of the placing of the order by the customer. An unavailable product is indicated as such.
A product may become unavailable between the time it is added to the basket and validation of the order by the customer. Adding a product to the basket is therefore not considered as final validation of the order.

(1) Bank transfer: all the information for effecting the transfer will be displayed at the time of confirmation of the order.

The products ordered by the customer will be delivered to the address indicated by the latter at the time of order.

Should the delivery of goods be deferred, STAY FOCUS reserves the right to change their selling price. That selling price will be changed if the purchase price, the duties, the taxes or the deductions that STAY FOCUS has to pay have been changed between the date of acceptance of the order and the scheduled delivery date. Nevertheless, STAY FOCUS will neither adjust nor modify its profit margin.
Delivery costs are not included in the price.
Unless specifically excluded, the customer may opt for one of the following delivery methods in Belgium:
If necessary, the customer will take steps to report to the collection point and pick up his or her parcel, on presentation of valid proof of identity and against signature.
Except in specific cases or unavailability of one or more articles, the ordered products will be delivered at one time.
In the event of delivery to the post office, the order is deemed to have been delivered as from the time the information is communicated to the customer that he or she may pick up the consignment at the post office on presentation of his or her identity card and against signature.
Any overdue deliveries may not give rise to any compensation.
If the ordered products were not delivered within 30 days of the sending of the order by the customer, for any reason other than force majeure, non-performance due to a technical cause or any other cause beyond its control, the customer will set STAY FOCUS an additional delivery time adapted to the circumstances or may ask for the sale to be cancelled. The sums paid by the customer will then be immediately refunded to the customer, to the exclusion of any compensation or deduction.
8 - Retention of title – Transfer of risks
By way of derogation from Article 1583 of the Civil Code, STAY FOCUS retains sole ownership of the ordered items until the customer has paid the price in full.
This retention of title does not preclude the transfer of risks (loss, damage, etc.) to the Post Office as soon as the goods have been dispatched by STAY FOCUS, and then to the customer as soon as the latter has received them or taken possession of them.
9 - Withdrawal right
In accordance with the applicable legal provisions, the customer has a withdrawal period of fourteen (14) calendar days from the day when the customer, or a third party appointed by the customer (other than the carrier), physically takes possession of the products concerned, to inform STAY FOCUS of his or her decision to withdraw.
