Terms and conditions

Introduction

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 mandatory 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.

1 Contract

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 sources 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 purchase of goods between traders and consumers.

2 Parties

The seller is Dance Events AS, Address: Gladengveien 8C, Email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., Phone: 455 17 859, VAT Registration No: 925 624 675, 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.

3 Price

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.

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 spelling or typing errors in the offer from the Seller in the ordering solution of the online shop or in the Purchaser’s order that would render the understanding of the service incomprehensible, and the other party realised or should have realised that such an error was present.

5 Payment

The Seller may charge the Purchaser at the time of the purchase or later on by issuing an invoice for payment via bank transfer.

If the Purchaser uses a credit or debit card to make the payment, the card processor the Seller uses may hold the funds on the card when the order is placed. The card will be charged on the same day the good is sent.

6 Delivery

Delivery has occurred once the Purchaser or his/ her representative received the registration confirmation via email or text message.

The Purchaser or his/her representative has the obligation to register the names of the person receiving the services if they are not the one and the same. Changes in the name registration can be made pending a processing fee.

7 Product risk

Product risk is assumed by the Purchaser as soon as the item is taken over by the Purchaser or his/ her representative in accordance with Section 6.

8 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).

The Purchaser can opt for another product. In case of value being higher than original, the Buyer will be charged for the remainder of the amount.

The cancellation period is as follows:

  • 14 days or more before the start of the classes: The Purchaser can cancel at anytime
  • Less than 14 days before the start of the classes: The Seller will offer alternative classes of the same value to the Purchaser
  • After the start of the classes: the Purchaser cannot cancel for the current 4 weeks of classes, but cancellation is available for the next 4 weeks, provided the notification period falls in the previous mentioned time intervals

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.

9 Delays and non-delivery: the Purchaser’s rights and time limit to make a claim

For demands of remedy for breach of contract, notice should be given in writing for the purposes of documentation (e.g. by email).

Performance

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 their right to demand per- formance if they wait an unreasonably long time before  making the claim.

Termination

If the Seller does not deliver the good 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 good. 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.

If the item is delivered after the additional time frame set by the consumer or after the delivery time that was a decisive factor in the  conclusion of the contract, termination must be asserted within a reasonable time frame after the Purchaser was informed of the delivery.

Compensation

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 accordance with the rules in Chapter 9 of the Consumer Purchases Act, withhold the goods, demand performance of the contract, terminate the contract and demand compensation from the Purchaser, according 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.

Fulfilment

If the Purchaser does not pay, the Seller may affirm the purchase and demand that the Purchaser pay the purchase sum. If the goods are not delivered, the Seller will lose their right if they take an unreasonably long time to make the claim.

Termination

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.

Fees for uncollected, non-prepaid items

If the Purchaser fails to collect unpaid goods, the Seller may charge the Purchaser a fee. The fee shall at maximum cover the Seller’s actual expenses for delivering the good to the Purchaser. Purchasers under 18 years of age cannot be charged this fee.

12 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 contract. 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 Norwegian Consumer Authority  for mediation. The Consumer Authority may be reached on (+47) 23 400 600 or at www.forbrukertilsynet.no
