1. General

1.1 Product

The Product can be used by pool vendors and pool brands to visualize real-time pools. The Product only intends to provide a visual impression about the size, position and configuration of a swimming pool. The responsibility as to how far this visualization matches or will match the final product lies entirely with the Customer. In addition, the software Application offers possibility to perform basic measurements. The responsibility over the correctness of these measurements also lies with the Customer. VirtualPools has not only a software Application but also an Online Dashboard on which the Customer can manage its account.

1.2 Conclusion of the Agreement

When ordering the Product and/or Services, either through the Website or by any other means, the Customer will always be asked to accept VirtualPools' Terms of Service. The Customer enters into an Agreement with Soulmade BV upon acceptance of the Terms of Service.

The Customer expressly acknowledges that any acceptance of the Terms of Service electronically gives rise to a valid Agreement. This is fully in accordance with the provisions of the Belgian Code of Economic Law. Within the limitations permitted by law, Soulmade BV may use any available electronic files to prove the existence of the Agreement.

Anyone entering into this Agreement on behalf of a legal entity represents and warrants that they are legally authorized to bind this legal entity to these Terms of Service.

This termination of the Agreement or suspension of its execution will under no circumstances entitle the other party to any form of compensation or damages.

1.3 Delivery

A month already started shall in this case count as a full month. The amount thus owed is furthermore increased by all collection costs paid by Soulmade BV, plus 20% of the invoice amount, with a minimum of €150 (excluding VAT) by way of fixed compensation, without prejudice to Soulmade BV's right to demand higher compensation.

If the Client fails to pay one or more invoices, Soulmade BV is entitled to temporarily suspend access to the Product and/or Services until it has received actual and full payment from the Client. However, the temporary suspension of access to the Product and/or Services does not affect the continuation of the payment terms. In addition, Soulmade BV may unilaterally terminate the Agreement if the Customer fails to pay or repeatedly fails to pay on time.

In the event of non-payment or late payment, all other invoices from Soulmade BV to the Client become due immediately, even if they are not yet due, and all permitted payment terms no longer apply.
