- Terms and Conditions regarding our products
- Scope of the Terms and Conditions
The present terms and conditions (the “Terms and Conditions”) apply to all contractual relationships entered into between the public limited company Gansevoort BV with registered office at Jenny Tanghestraat 4/401 9050 Ghent Belgium and registered in the Crossroad Bank for Enterprises under the number 0754.682.863 (including its affiliated companies and subsidiaries hereafter referred to as “Baily & Bella”), on the one hand, and the consuming entities (the “Consumer”), on the other hand, irrespective of its legal nature (i.e. natural person, legal entity, grouping of persons) and regardless of their geographical location, and this with respect to the Products of Baily & Bella. Any reference to Products (or Product) is a reference to the pet products and accessories as displayed on the Website.
The Consumer who has ordered the Products of Baily & Bella through the website: www.bailyandbella.com (the “Website”) or has used the Website in a way that would be compatible with the scope of this Terms and Conditions, has deemed to have read, received and accepted these Terms and Conditions. These Terms and Conditions constitute the contractual framework and therefore form part of the Contractual Relationship between Baily & Bella and its Consumer (“the Contractual Relationship”). Without prejudice to the Terms and Conditions and other stipulations set out on the Website that refer to the mere use of the Website, the Contractual Relationship shall normally start the moment Baily & Bella has agreed on the shipment of an order of Products made by a Consumer.
The Consumer receives, after an order being made through the Website, a confirmation of the order by e-mail. This confirmation is not an acceptance of the order, but merely informative for the Consumer and only applies as confirmation of the receipt of the order by Baily & Bella.
Baily & Bella has the right to put any user account(s) on the Website of any Consumer on hold and prevent outgoing deliveries where Baily & Bella become aware or has strong reasons to believe any abuse or unfair treatment of any Consumer in the use of the Website.
Baily & Bella reserves the right to refuse orders at its own discretion. Baily & Bella has the right, if it considers this necessary or desirable, to engage third parties for the correct execution of any Contractual Relationship with agreement and to pass on the costs of such engagement to the Consumer.
Baily & Bella reserves the right to adjust its Terms and Conditions. If a provision of these Terms and Conditions would be unenforceable or contrary to a provision of mandatory law, this shall not affect the validity and enforceability of the other provisions of these Terms and Conditions. In such a situation, the unenforceable or conflicting provision will be replaced by an enforceable and legally valid provision that is as close as possible to the economic purpose of the original provision.
The Consumer declares to have explicitly taken note of the Terms and Conditions stated below and to accept the contents thereof in full and without reservation. The mere use of the Website or the placing of an order leads to the acceptance of the general conditions described below.
Unless expressly agreed otherwise, in the event of any conflict between the text of these Terms and Conditions and the text of the Consumer terms and conditions (if there would be any), these Terms and Conditions shall always prevail over any Consumer’s terms and conditions (regardless of the form in which they were provided to Baily & Bella). Any agreements between the Consumer and Baily & Bella that deviate from one or more stipulations of these Terms and Conditions will only replace the stipulation or the stipulations from which they deviate, so that the other stipulations remain fully applicable. The English version of this text of these Terms and Conditions will always prevail over this and other translations of these Terms and Conditions.
All prices mentioned on the Website include VAT. The prices remain fixed and unchanged during the period of validity stated in the acceptance of the order. The prices are subject to fluctuations resulting from circumstances beyond Baily & Bella’s control (for example such as fluctuations in the VAT rate, specific tax-adjustments).
- Introductory Packages
Baily & Bella sometimes provides introductory packages to new Consumer (such as trial boxes for cats and dogs) in case they are new users of the Website with no previous order history. Consumers that are previously registered users do not qualify for such an additional introductory package, unless expressly agreed otherwise. The wording "Previously registered” refers to any combination of: (i) a Consumer with a user account at the Website, (ii) a credit- or debit card, a credit or debit card holder, (iii) a delivery address, (iv) a cardholder address, or (v) a household, who has previously made use of the Website. Such introductory packages are limited to one individual dog and/or one individual cat, unless agreed otherwise. Baily & Bella has the right to refuse or grant such introductory packages to Consumers at its own discretion.
- The right of withdrawal for the Consumer
If the Consumer is a natural person who does not act in the context of a profession or business, he or she has the right - in accordance with article VI 47 of the Belgian Code on Economic Law (“CEL”) to revoke the Contractual Relationship with Baily & Bella within a withdrawal period of 14 days starting from the day following the day on which the Consumer has received the Products and without stating reasons.
During the 14-days withdrawal period, the Consumer will handle the Products and packaging concerned with utmost care. He or she will only unpack the Product concerned to the extent necessary to assess whether he or she wishes to keep the Product. If the Consumer exercises the right of withdrawal, the Consumer will return the Products concerned with all accessories and - if reasonably possible - in its original condition and packaging to Baily & Bella, in accordance with the reasonable and clear instructions provided for by Baily & Bella. If the Products concerned are food products, only unopened and unaffected packages can be returned. The Consumer can not make use of his right of withdrawal for perishable products that have passed the expiry date.
Before the expiry of this 14-days withdrawal period, the Consumer unequivocally declares Baily & Bella to the extent of his or her decision to withdraw from the Contractual Relationship via the use of the standard form: https://economie.fgov.be/sites/default/files/Files/Ventes/Forms/formulier-voor-herroeping.pdf (in Dutch).
In case of such a withdrawal where the Consumer wishes to return the goods for free, the Consumer has to request a free return label through our Customer Service Department (firstname.lastname@example.org) and has to return the products within the withdrawal period of 14 days starting from the day following the day on which the Consumer has received the Products.
If the above conditions are met, the customer is entitled to a refund of the amount paid by the Consumer for the Products. Only if Baily & Bella has made a mistake in the order, the shipping costs of the original order will be refunded. In no other case, the shipping costs of the original order will be refunded by Baily & Bella. It will be refunded from the moment that Baily & Bella has recovered all Products or earlier, if the Consumer proves that he has returned the Products (i.e. a tracking link).
If the return does not meet these conditions above, the Consumer will bear all direct costs (e.g. shipping costs) for the return of the Products. The amount paid by the Consumer for the Products can then only be refunded if a proof of return (i.e. a tracking link) can be presented. Only if Baily & Bella has made a mistake in the order, the shipping costs of the original order will be refunded. In no other case, the shipping costs of the original order will be refunded by Baily & Bella.
If the wrong products are returned (e.g. products that are not ordered through our webshop), even with a return label provided by our Customer Service Department (email@example.com), the direct costs for the return are for the Consumer. If only a part of the return contains wrong products and the order has been sent with a return label provided by our Customer Service Department (firstname.lastname@example.org), then there are no direct costs for the return for the Consumer. The costs incurred to send the wrong products back to the Consumer are at the expense of the Consumer. If the wrong products are returned, they will not be refunded by Baily & Bella.
The Consumer is liable for the depreciation of the Products resulting from the handling of the products that goes beyond what was necessary to assess the nature, the characteristics and the functioning of the goods.
Baily & Bella refunds the Consumer with the same payment method with which the Consumer has performed the original transaction, unless the Consumer and Baily & Bella has explicitly agreed otherwise.
- Cancellation, suspension and dissolution
If the Consumer, after the withdrawal period, wishes to cancel an order made, and Baily & Bella agrees, 25% of the price (excluding VAT) will be charged as cancellation costs. Baily & Bella reserves the right to claim full compensation for the costs incurred.
Baily & Bella has the right to suspend their obligations if:
- the Consumer does not fully fulfill his obligations under the agreement or there is a well-founded suspicion.
- the Consumer dies, goes bankrupt, is subject to insolvency proceedings.
- the Consumer fails to pay an invoice amount or part thereof within the stipulated period.
- Baily & Bella can dissolve the Contractual Relationship if circumstances occur that are of such a nature that compliance with the Contractual Relationship is impossible or can no longer be demanded according to standards of reasonableness and fairness.
- Conformity, warranty and indemnity
Baily & Bella strives to deliver the best Products as indicated in the order made by the Consumer, which corresponds to a reasonable usability / soundness and all legal / regulatory provisions.
Except in case of intent or serious misconduct or negligence on the part of Baily & Bella, all liability of Baily & Bella for any breach of contract is explicitly excluded. In no event shall Baily & Bella be held liable for indirect losses (such as loss of income, opportunities, …). The overall liability is financially limited to the total amount mentioned on the invoices related to the Products concerned. Baily & Bella does not guarantee the quality of Products that have been damaged deliberately or through negligence of the Consumer, or have not been used in accordance with its instructions. The Consumer is obliged to indemnify Baily & Bella against all third-party claims (including government) and is liable for all costs arising from its negligence.
The Consumer will clearly announce his place of delivery or that of his representative beforehand and in accordance with the instructions as provided for on the Website. The Consumer is obliged to take delivery of the delivered products at the moment that they are delivered at the delivery location communicated by him or at the moment at which the Products are made available to him in accordance with the Contractual Relationship. All information provided by the Consumer to Baily & Bella, such as the information accompanying the order, is binding.
Delivery of Products takes place as long as stocks last. If the stock is exhausted, Baily & Bella will inform the Consumer. No form of compensation is due for depleted inventory. Baily & Bella will always mention an indicative delivery time taking into account known circumstances. Exceeding this delivery time gives in no case rise to any compensation, penalty or cancellation of the order or the Contractual Relationship.
Unless otherwise agreed, the risk of delivery for complete or partial damage and/or full or partial loss lies with Baily & Bella only until the moment of receipt by the Consumer or his representative. In the event of delivery of incorrect Products, Baily & Bella will bear the Product and transport costs if these incorrect products are returned by the Consumer within the 14-days withdrawal period and are received by Baily & Bella.
- The payment
Unless agreed otherwise, all payments must be made before the Products are sent out to the Consumer. After prepayment, the Consumer can only invoke his rights. The Consumer has an obligation to immediately notify Baily & Bella when incorrect payment details have been communicated.
Late payment of an invoice will result in all claims of Baily & Bella on the Consumer being immediately due and payable. Any overdue invoice will be automatically and without prior notice of default increased by an interest of 8 per year as well as a flat-rate compensation of 10% of the invoice price with a minimum of EUR 15,00 without excluding the option for Baily & Bella to prove and claim higher damages.
Baily & Bella has a retention of title up to the moment of payment by the Consumer of all Products, deliveries, services or activities to be performed under the Contractual Relationship (including all interests and costs).
The Consumer is obliged to provide full cooperation in order to give Baily & Bella the opportunity to return the products to him and to keep the products carefully and sufficiently recognizable as the property of Baily & Bella.
- Privacy and data protection
By creating a user account, personal data of the Consumer are collected in the customer database of Gansevoort. The received personal data are only used for internal customer management such as the execution of order. These are not passed on to other organizations for commercial purposes.

If a longer period is required, Baily & Bella will notify the Consumer of a later date.
