Terms & Conditions
AKA the fine print
Last updated June 2, 2023
I (AmuzAnt Design, aka Tineke De Cat) would love not to need these Terms & Conditions, but the world is what it is, so here they are. They serve for your and my protection; if you use my website, services, and/or place an order for products, we are both bound by these terms and conditions. I promise to be reasonable (f.e. I won’t be demanding a free coffee with every visit). Please have a read, and if you disagree, stop using my site and services. (Also, my Website is meant to be used by people who are at least 18 years old, younger persons need explicit consent from their parents)
I will try my best to keep all explanations simple, but I might also add in the legalese to cover my bases. In case of a dispute, it is always the legalese that is the one that is binding; the simple summaries are not a replacement or full representation of that. I also have the right to change these Terms & Services when I see fit, I will alert you by updating the “Last updated” date on top.
The Terms & Conditions start with a list of definitions; these words will be capitalized, and always have the meanings listed, regardless of whether they appear in singular or plural.

7. The Right of Withdrawal
In short: In the EU you have the Right of Withdrawal, so the right to change your mind about your Order within 14 days of receiving it (the Cooling-Off period. So if you decide you no longer want your Products, let me know and we’ll figure it out. This right does not count for custom products and since all my clothing and accessories are made on demand, the Right of Withdrawal is not automatic. Please check out my return Policy for those items.
If you choose to return your Order, you are responsible for the shipping cost to return the Products. I will repay your Products within 14 days of my receiving them.
In legalese: If You buy Products from Me, You have the right to decide that you do not want to keep the goods within 14 days counting from delivery (the Cooling-Off Period). You can then return your Order without paying a fine and without giving any reason (you pay the return shipping costs for this yourself). Within 14 days after I have received your return Products, I will refund you the full purchase price of the Products with the same payment method you used to pay for them.
The direct costs of returning the goods are therefore for your account. You can return your return package by post or courier. If desired, I can create a return label for you. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or +32 (0) 499 60 76 78
I may withhold reimbursement until I have received the Products or until you have provided evidence of having sent back the Products, whichever is the earliest.
During the first 14 days after delivery, I expect you to handle the order and the packaging with care. If you still want to be able to return the goods as described above, you may only unpack or use them to the extent necessary to assess whether you wish to keep the goods. Returned goods may be tried on, but may not have been used. If you return the goods, this must be done together with the original packaging, with all accessories supplied and in the original condition and packaging.
In order to exercise Your Right of Withdrawal quickly and correctly, both in the case of the delivery of services and the delivery of Products, You can fill in the form mentioned below and send it to email@example.com. I will email you a confirmation of receipt of your withdrawal.
You can find the withdrawal form here: firstname.lastname@example.org
8. Shipping & Delivery
In short: I ship only in Belgium, unless we have a written agreement (including the shipping cost) to ship elsewhere. I will ship it to the shipping address you tell me when you order, and after receiving the payment. Shipping is my risk to take, so no need to worry about your package getting lost in the mail (that is my responsibility). If something is wrong with your order, please get in touch with me. In case of a mistake or damage, I will carry the cost of the return shipment.
In case you are returning your order, shipping becomes your responsibility.
Delivery times are informational and not binding. If shipping takes longer then expected (see my shipping FAQ), I promise to keep you informed, and when it doesn’t concern custom items (aka apparel and accessories), you can cancel the order.
In legalese: All goods and services are delivered to the address specified by you in your order. Shipments are only possible in Belgium, unless we have a written agreement (that includes the shipping price) to ship to a new destination.
My shipments are always at my risk. However, if you return Products (non custom) to me within 14 days of purchase because you prefer not to keep them (check out the Right of Withdrawal), you are responsible for the transport.
If the Products delivered by me were damaged during transport, do not correspond to the items stated on the delivery note or do not correspond to the items you ordered, you must report this as soon as possible and certainly within 3 days and return the items within 14 calendar days of receipt. I will then bear the cost of the return.
I cannot be held responsible for any consequential damages due to late delivery or non-delivery by the carrier appointed by the company. My liability in such cases is limited to the value of the Products which are shown not to have been received by the Customer.
Delivery times are only provided by way of information and are not binding, unless expressly agreed. However, I strives to respect the delivery times and will communicate delays to the customer. If I do not do this, you can cancel your order free of charge. In that case we will refund you within 30 days after dissolution.
9. Force Majeur
In short: If things happen that are out of my control, I’m not obliged to fulfill the Order, and will give you a refund.
In legalese: In case of force majeure, I am not obliged to fulfill my obligations. In that case, I can either suspend my obligations for the duration of the force majeure, or dissolve the agreement definitively.
Force majeure is any circumstance beyond my will and control that prevents the fulfillment of my obligations in whole or in part. By this I understand, among other things, strikes, fire, business failures, power failures, failures in a (telecommunication) network or connection or used communication systems and / or the unavailability of my website at any time, non-delivery or late delivery of suppliers or other engaged third parties, …
10. Dispute Resolution
In short: I want you to be happy, so please get in touch about anything you’re not satisfied with. I will do my utmost to give you an answer within 7 days.
In legalese: If You have any concern or dispute about the Service, You agree to first try to resolve the dispute informally by contacting the Company.
The European Commission provides an online dispute resolution platform, which you can access here: ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/ If you would like to bring this subject to my attention, please contact me.
11. Governing law
In short: Antwerp, Belgium is the place to be.
In legalese: These Legal Terms are governed by and interpreted following the laws of Belgium, and the use of the United Nations Convention of Contracts for the International Sales of Goods is expressly excluded. If your habitual residence is in the EU, and you are a consumer, you additionally possess the protection provided to you by obligatory provisions of the law in your country of residence. Tineke De Cat and yourself both agree to submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of Antwerp, which means you may make a claim to defend your consumer protection rights in regards to these Legal Terms in Belgium, or in the EU country in which you reside.
12. Links to Other Websites
In short: Not my circus, not my monkeys. I am careful where I link to, but I can not control or take responsibility for other websites.
In legalese: My Site may contain links to third-party web sites or services that are not owned or controlled by the Company. The Company has no control over, and assumes no responsibility for, the content, privacy policies, or practices of any third party web sites or services.
