Article 4 - The range
If an offer is only temporary or subject to conditions, this will always be clearly stated.
There is a complete and accurate description of our products in the online store. This will allow you to make a good assessment of our products. The photos in the online store are as realistic as possible. It is however possible that the colour of a product doesn't exactly match the actual colour.
Sometimes things are too good to be true. Obvious errors or mistakes in the offer (such as an extremely low price) doesn't bind Fatboy, consumers cannot derive any rights from this.
Information on your rights and obligations can be found on the website and in these conditions so you know where you stand if you are making a purchase in our online store.
Article 5 - The Agreement
The agreement will be concluded at the time that you finalise the order process and have confirmed your order.
Fatboy will then send you an email in which the contract is confirmed. As long as you have not received the email, you can still cancel the agreement by sending Fatboy an email. You can of course use your right of withdrawal.
Fatboy shall take the appropriate measures to keep your personal information that you enter in the ordering process secure and to ensure a secure Web environment. This applies specifically to the payment details that are sent online.
Fatboy will send you the following information at the latest at the time of delivery of your order (so that you can save it on your computer):
- Fatboy's physical address where you can lodge any complaints;
- the terms of your right of withdrawal and how you should use this;
- in case of personalised products: the fact that your right of withdrawal is excluded;
- information about any warranty and service after purchase;

Article 6 - Right of withdrawal
You are allowed to cancel the agreement for the online purchase of your product during a period of 30 days after receipt of your products. You do not have to indicate a reason. Cancellation is done with a completed Return Form. You can also use the standard withdrawel form to return an item.
If Fatboy didn't supply you with the legally required information about your right of withdrawal or the standard withdrawal form, the cooling-off period shall continue up to 12 months after the originally imposed end of the cooling-off period.
If Fatboy sends you the information about the right of withdrawal in the situation referred to in the previous paragraph, the cooling-off period shall expire 30 days after the day on which you have received that information.
Article 7 - Your obligations during the cooling-off period
You may unpack our products during the cooling-off period to see if you like the product and the operation (for example, of the lamps). Take note that – if you want to return the product - the product should remain clean and undamaged and the packaging in good condition.
You are liable for any depreciation of the product that is the result of a way of handling the product that goes beyond that which is allowed in paragraph 1.
Article 8 - Exercising the right of withdrawal and costs
You can use your right of withdrawal by filling in and sending the completed Return Form within the period so that we know that you want to cancel your purchase in the online store. You can also use the standard withdrawel form to return an item.
Fatboy will send you clear instructions on how the return should take place. In most cases, Fatboy will send you a return label with which you can send back the shipment. You must prepare the product for return with everything that was delivered with it, in the original box and other packaging, and of course in clean and undamaged condition.
In the event that you have to take care of the return, the risk and the burden of proof for the correct and timely exercise of the right of withdrawal will be yours. In other cases, this will be Fatboy's. So make sure you have proof of the dispatch.
You bear the direct cost of returning the product (€ 4.95) in case the order amount was € 50 or less. These costs will be charged separately, if applicable.
Article 9 - Fatboy's obligations in case of withdrawal
If you inform us by return or contact form that you want to make use of your right of withdrawal, we will confirm your message electronically as soon as possible.
