  2. These Platform Terms and Conditions apply to each and every one who offers new or used lab equipment and/or inventory (hereafter also referred to as ‘article’ or ‘articles’) via the website of LabMakelaar Benelux B.V. 
  3. LabMakelaar acts as a mediator between the supplier of new or used lab articles (hereafter referred to as ‘supplier’ or ‘seller’) and buyers.
  4. LabMakelaar can act as supplier or buyer itself as well.

II. Applicability

  1. These Platform Terms and Conditions apply to every visitor using the website for offering new or used laboratory equipment or inventory (suppliers and sellers).
  2. ‘Usage of’ the website is specified as visiting it, placing or altering adverts, navigating from the website to other websites, copying (parts of) documents and using the information of this website in whichever context or form.
  3. These Platform Terms and Conditions regulate the legal relationship between the suppliers/sellers of articles on the website, buyers and LabMakelaar. 
  4. These Platform Terms and Conditions apply to all sellers, regardless of the location from which the seller accesses the website.
  5. Contradictory conditions or terms and conditions other than the terms and conditions in these Platform Terms and Conditions are not recognised by LabMakelaar.

III. Registration and Acceptance of the Platform Terms and Conditions

  1. Before a seller offers an article (or wants to commercialise it in any other way) on the website, the seller registers by filling in the designated registration form.
  2. The supplier is responsible for truthfully filling in the registration form and for the content of the adverts he or she places on the website. LabMakelaar has no responsibility for this whatsoever.
  3. By registering oneself as ‘supplier’, the seller is unconditionally tied to these Platform Terms and Conditions.
  4. By registering as a ‘supplier’, the seller declares him- or herself to be the rightful owner of the articles he or she offers for sale (or wants to commercialise in any other way) on the website, as well as of the supplied images, or that he or she is authorised to offer these articles for sale (or to commercialise them in any other way) in name of the rightful owner. 
  5. The supplier is responsible for the content of the advert.
  6. LabMakelaar will place the advert on the website after approval.
  7. LabMakelaar reserves the right to decline, alter or remove an advert without statement of reasons.
  8. When LabMakelaar declines, alters or removes an advert, the offering party of the advert will always be notified. In the case of an alteration by LabMakelaar to which the seller does not agree, the seller will file a request (which includes by way of email) to LabMakelaar to have the advert in question removed from the website. 
  9. The imagery submitted by the supplier can be freely used by LabMakelaar in relation to the advert placed.

IV. Reimbursement and terms of mediation

  1. LabMakelaar charges a commission fee of 21% of the sales price of the article in question. This fee is already included in the price stated on the website.
  2. LabMakelaar will have to be informed about proposals for alterations to the advert, the offering or the price of an article at any time.
  3. LabMakelaar takes care of altering or removing the advert.
  4. By offering articles on the website, the supplier declares that said articles are indeed up for sale (or commercialising in other ways) by the supplier.
  5. When a supplier no longer wishes to offer an article on the website, LabMakelaar will have to be informed at any time. LabMakelaar reserves the first right to purchase the article at the previously stated price during five workdays after withdrawal by letter, which is given to LabMakelaar by the supplier. If LabMakelaar does not use this first right to purchase within five workdays, the supplier is free to withdraw the offering of the article altogether.
  6. When an article from the supplier is not available anymore without a transaction via LabMakelaar having taken place and without LabMakelaar being informed, the supplier owed LabMakelaar an amount of EUR 25,00 per advert.
  7. After a sale mediated by LabMakelaar, LabMakelaar will take care of the transaction.
  8. Being a mediator in a sale, LabMakelaar is at no time during the process the owner of the offered article. The supplier is responsible for the shipment to the buyer of an article, which meets the expectations evoked in the advert and during the process.
  9. In the case that the article does not meet the expectations evoked in the advert and during the sales process, the transaction can be cancelled at the request of the buyer. The buying party will have to justify his request. The period of time during which this is possible is set at two weeks after receiving the article. Any costs caused by this are paid by the supplier.
  10. LabMakelaar is not liable for omissions or for transgressing legal obligations and stipulations arising from mediating between supplier and buyer via the website or otherwise.
  11. The adverts of suppliers who do not meet the terms of reimbursement and payment will immediately be removed from the website. In this case, the supplier will owe an amount of EUR 25.00 per advert to LabMakelaar.
