2. The Company’s commitment
The Company undertakes to provide its Services in compliance with professional standards. All of the Company’s obligations are to be treated as obligations of means (obligations de moyens). In line with the foregoing, the Company endeavors to return all Items cleaned to the Customer. Considering that certain stains/marks may however not be removed or that removing such stains/marks would impair the Item, the Company does not guarantee to be able to successfully clean all of the Items submitted to its care.
With respect to its Pick-Up & Delivery Service, the Company will deploy its best efforts to arrive at the date and time scheduled for pick-up and delivery. Considering however that traffic is only predictable to a certain extent, the Company does not guarantee to be always able to pick-up or deliver the Items on time. The Company may in no case be held liable for any delay in that respect.
In order to benefit from the Company’s Services, the Customer must register for and maintain an active personal account (the “Account”) with the Company. To that end, the Customer may either complete the online application form accessible on the Website, register through the Company’s hotline mentioned for such purposes on the Website or register in store in the Company’s premises.
When registering with the Company, the Customer is required to provide a certain number of personal and billing information to the Company such as his/her name, address, mobile phone number, age, as well as at least one valid payment method (either a credit card or other accepted payment partner). The Customer agrees and undertakes to maintain accurate, complete, and up-to-date all information in his/her Account. The failure to maintain accurate, complete, and up-to-date the Account information, including having an invalid or expired payment method on file, may result in the Customer’s inability to access and use the Services of the Company and the immediate termination of the agreement entered into with the Customer by the Company. The Customer is responsible for all activity that occurs under his/her Account, and agrees to maintain the security and secrecy of his/her Account username and password at all times.

The Company may from time to time provide certain selected Customers with promotional offers and discounts that may result in different amounts charged for the same or similar services obtained, and the Customer hereby agrees that such promotional offers and discounts, unless also made available to him/her, shall have no bearing on his/her use of the Services or the Price applied for requesting Services. The Customer may elect to cancel his/her request for Pick-Up & Delivery Service at any time prior to the arrival of the Company’s driver at the agreed pick-up location on the agreed time and date, in which case the Customer may be charged a cancellation fee of five euro (EUR 5.-).
5. Delivery of Items

Alternatively, the Customer may pick-up his/her Items in the Company’s premises during regular business hours within three (3) months as of issuance of the Order Confirmation.
If an Item gets lost or stolen, the Customer is entitled to a compensation payment based on the actual value of the Item, limited however to fifteen (15) times the price agreed for cleaning said Item and half (1/2) of the price of the Item if bought new. The latter needs to be proven based on the receipt of sale of such a new Item. The damaged Item will be retained by the Company and transferred to the Company’s insurance company.
The Company may not be held liable for the shrinking, deformation or lengthening of an Item during the washing/dry-cleaning process. Further, the Company declines all liability caused by invisible defects of an Item, including notably color defects, printing defects or defects of the fabric of an Item.
