All relationships, present, and future, between the Netherlands-based offices of Inspective Crime Games and the counterparty are subject to these General Terms and Conditions.

2. Application
These General Sales and Delivery Conditions (hereinafter referred to as GSC) apply to all our legal relationships. The GSC applies even if they may deviate from the general conditions set by the counterparty or if the applicability of our general conditions is excluded. By placing the order, the counterparty has submitted to our GSC. In the case of specific conditions agreed upon, our GSC remains in force for the rest. Oral agreements regarding deviations from our GSC are only binding when confirmed in writing by us. In the event of a lack of written documentation, deviations can be proven by the parties through all legal means.

3. Mutual Obligations
Inspective Crime Games must exercise due care in its service provision and delivery. It will, to the best of its ability, take into account the interests of the counterparty. The counterparty must ensure that orders, statements, and communications to Inspective Crime Games are clear and contain the correct information. The counterparty must use information carriers, communication means, or forms in accordance with the instructions of Inspective Crime Games. Inspective Crime Games is authorized not to execute orders and requests if Inspective Crime Games' established (electronic) forms or other communication means are not used.

4. Quotations
All quotations, offered prices, and conditions provided by Inspective Crime Games are at all times entirely non-binding.

5. Prices
All prices are inclusive of VAT. If, due to any government measure, cost-increasing taxes, levies, or import duties are changed before delivery, we reserve the right to pass on this change, even if the price has been agreed to be fixed. Prices are valid for delivery free to an address within the Netherlands via regular PostNL mail delivery, provided that the transportation costs for courier delivery necessary by Inspective Crime Games or the counterparty will be charged additionally. If the price has not been agreed upon in advance between the counterparty and Inspective Crime Games, Inspective Crime Games will charge the usual prices. Inspective Crime Games ensures that information on prices of standard products is available via the internet. If the data provided by the customer for the placed order is incomplete and/or incorrect, Inspective may charge additional costs for subsequent delivery. Additional shipping costs will also be charged for resending.

6. Transportation
Transport takes place ex warehouse for the customer's risk. The choice of the mode of transport lies with Inspective Crime Games, without us being liable to the customer. We insure transportation only if expressly requested by the counterparty and then at their expense. Shipping via track & trace is only provided when the customer bears the costs of parcel shipping.

7. Delivery Times
Stated delivery times shall never be considered fixed deadlines unless expressly agreed otherwise. Inspective Crime Games will exercise the utmost care in receiving and executing orders for products and in assessing requests for service provision. The delivery address is the location communicated by the customer to Inspective Crime Games. The customer is responsible for providing the correct address details. The risk of damage and/or loss of products rests with Inspective Crime Games until the moment of delivery to the customer or a designated representative known to Inspective Crime Games, unless expressly agreed otherwise.

When placing an order for a game, the customer must provide a date on which the product will be used. Considering the delivery period of PostNL, Inspective Crime Games will dispatch the ordered product as soon as possible to ensure that the customer receives the material before this date. However, Inspective Crime Games is reliant on the customer's order date and delivery by PostNL. Inspective Crime Games can never guarantee that an order will be delivered by the customer's chosen date.

8. Suspension and Termination
Inspective Crime Games has the right, at its discretion, without judicial intervention and without being held to any damages, upon written notice, either to entirely or partially terminate the agreement or to suspend the execution of the agreement until the force majeure situation (as discussed below) has ended, but for a maximum period of 6 months, notwithstanding our right during this period to still choose termination as mentioned above in the following cases: force majeure — this shall include: epidemics, natural disasters, strikes, lockouts, fire, wartime conditions, terrorism, mobilization, unrest, import and export restrictions, shortage of raw materials, auxiliaries, ready products, or labor, non-delivery by third parties for any reason, transport difficulties, and the like, even if these difficulties occur with the supplier to whom we have placed our order for whatever reason.

In the cases referred to in sub 14 below, we additionally reserve the right, without further notice of default or judicial intervention, to declare all agreements concluded with the counterparty dissolved, without prejudice to any other rights we may have.

9. Partial Deliveries and Duplicate Deliveries
When a part of an order is ready, we may, at our discretion, deliver this part or wait until all the ordered items are ready.
