Article 3 – Applicability

  1. These General Terms and Conditions apply to every offer/all offers, agreements and deliveries of the Entrepreneur and to every agreement concluded (at a distance/selling at distance) between the Entrepreneur and the Consumer.

  2. Before the (distance) agreement is concluded, the text of these general terms and conditions is made available to the consumer. If this is not reasonably possible, the entrepreneur will indicate, before the distance contract is concluded, how the general terms and conditions can be looked into by the consumer and that - at request of the consumer - they will be made available free of charge as soon as possible. 

  3. If one or more provisions in these general terms and conditions are at any time wholly or partially void or voided, the remainder of the agreement and these terms and conditions will remain in force and the relevant provision will be replaced in mutual consultation without delay by a provision whose purpose and purport should be approximated to the original as closely as possible.   

  4. Situations that are not regulated in these general terms and conditions must be assessed 'in the spirit' of these general terms and conditions.

  5. Uncertainties about the content or interpretation of one or more provisions of our terms and conditions must be explained and assessed  'in the spirit' of these terms and conditions. 

  6. In case that the Consumer includes provisions or conditions in his order, confirmation or notification containing acceptance that deviate from or do not appear in the General Terms and Conditions, these are only binding if and insofar as they have been expressly accepted in writing by the Entrepreneur (Dorne International B.V.).

Article 4  – The offer

  1. If an offer has a limited period of validity or is made subject to conditions, this will be expressly stated in the offer.

  2. The offer is without obligation. The entrepreneur is entitled to change and adjust the offer. 

  3. The offer contains the best possible description of the products, digital content and/or services offered. The description is sufficiently detailed to allow a proper assessment of the offer by the consumer. 

  4. All images, specification data of products, services and/or digital content offered are indicative and cannot give rise to compensation or dissolution of the agreement. Obvious mistakes or errors in the offer are not binding on the entrepreneur. We would like to add the following specifically: FÉ's selenite is natural and real. Because of the various special characteristics of selenite, each piece of crystal therefore varies - even of the same size - in weight, shape, structure and color (shade). FÉ, with its unrepeatable design, is therefore offered to the consumer per weight class. Every lamp is different, which is why the photos we use are purely indicative. 

  5. Dorne International B.V. cannot guarantee that the digitally reproduced colors correspond exactly to the real color scheme.  

  6. Each offer contains such information that it is clear to the consumer what rights and obligations are attached to the acceptance of the offer.

Article 5 – The Agreement

  1. Subject to the provisions of paragraph 4, the agreement is concluded at the time of acceptance by the consumer of the offer and the fulfillment of the associated conditions.

  2. If the consumer has accepted the offer electronically, the entrepreneur will immediately confirm receipt of acceptance of the offer electronically. As long as the receipt of this acceptance has not been confirmed by the entrepreneur, the consumer can dissolve the agreement.

  3. If the agreement is concluded electronically, the entrepreneur will take appropriate technical and organizational measures to secure the electronic transfer of data and ensure a safe web environment. If the consumer can pay electronically, the entrepreneur will observe appropriate security measures.

  4. Within legal frameworks, the entrepreneur can inform himself whether the consumer can meet his payment obligations, as well as about all those facts and factors that are important for a responsible conclusion of the distance selling contract. If, on the basis of this investigation, the entrepreneur has good reasons not to enter into the agreement, he is entitled to refuse an order or request with reasons, or to attach special conditions to the implementation.

  5. At the latest upon delivery of the product, service or digital content to the consumer, the entrepreneur will make available the following information, in writing or in such a way that it can be stored by the consumer in an accessible manner on a durable data carrier:

  6. the visiting address of the establishment of the entrepreneur where the consumer can go with complaints;

  7. the conditions under which and the manner in which the consumer can make use of the right of withdrawal, or a clear statement regarding the exclusion of the right of withdrawal; 

  8. the information about guarantees and existing after-sales service;

  11. If the consumer has a right of withdrawal, the model withdrawal form. Both the Return Policy and the Return/Form of Withdrawal  have been made available and made transparent via the Entrepreneur's website: 

  12. In the case of a long-term transaction, the provision in the previous paragraph only applies to the first delivery.


The specific return policy of the Entrepreneur (Dorne International B.V.) and the rights and obligations of the Entrepreneur and Consumer is hereby expressly referred to (and reference is made to): the Return Policy on the website, made available to the consumer via the website and can be found and downloaded here. It is the responsibility and duty of the consumer to take cognizance of this and to act accordingly and by accepting the General Terms and Conditions, stated in the document 'Return Policy' as well as in these General Terms and Conditions, they are automatically accepted as such by the Consumer for 'seen' ‘accepted’ and 'agreed to’'. 

Article 6 – Right of Withdrawal

  1. The consumer can dissolve an agreement with regard to the purchase of a product during a reflection period of 14 days without stating reasons. The entrepreneur may ask the consumer for the reason for withdrawal, but not oblige him to state his reason(s). Withdrawal/approval period does not apply to companies/business customers, but this only applies to the Consumer, who is a natural person who does not act in the course of his profession or business. 

  2. The reflection period referred to in paragraph 1 starts on the day after the         consumer, or a third party designated by the consumer in advance, who is not the carrier (transporter), has received the product.

Article 7 – Obligations of the consumer during the cooling-off period

  1. During the cooling-off period, the consumer will handle the product and packaging with care. He will only unpack or use the product to the extent necessary to determine the nature, characteristics and functioning of the product. The basic principle here is that the consumer may only handle and inspect the product as he would be allowed to do in a store. Being made of a natural and delicate material and/or fragile crystal (selenite), the consumer should handle the FÉ lamp with care.

Article 8 – Exercise of the right of withdrawal by the consumer and the costs thereof

  1. If the consumer makes use of his right of withdrawal, he must notify the entrepreneur within the cooling-off period by means of the model withdrawal form or in another unambiguous manner.

  2. As soon as possible, but within 14 days from the day following the notification referred to in paragraph 1, the consumer returns the product or hands it over to (an authorized representative of) the entrepreneur. This is not necessary if the entrepreneur has offered to collect the product himself. The consumer has in any case observed the return period if he returns the product before the reflection period has expired.

  3. The consumer returns the product with all accessories supplied, if reasonably possible in its original condition and packaging, and in accordance with the reasonable and clear instructions provided by the entrepreneur (safely and securely packed and completely protected). 

  4. The risk and the burden of proof for the correct and timely exercise of the right of withdrawal and the return shipment (sufficiently stamped, otherwise not accepted) (the shipment/returned shipment must be received in good condition at the Entrepreneur) lies with the consumer. The risk and costs arising from transport damage during return also lie with the consumer. The entrepreneur is entitled to charge the consumer for the damage or so-called decrease in value of the product. 

  5. The consumer bears the direct costs of returning the product.

  6. If the consumer makes use of his right of withdrawal, all additional agreements will be dissolved by operation of law.

Article 9  – Obligations of the entrepreneur in the event of withdrawal

  1. If the entrepreneur makes the notification of withdrawal by the consumer electronically possible, he will send a confirmation of receipt after receipt of this notification.

  2. After actually receiving and inspecting the return shipment by the Entrepreneur, the Entrepreneur will send the Consumer an email to let him know whether the return can be accepted and approved. If approved by the Entrepreneur, the refund of the purchase price actually paid by the consumer will be processed as soon as possible, but no later than 14 days. 

  3. The entrepreneur uses the same payment method that the consumer has used for reimbursement, unless the consumer agrees to a different method.

Article 10 – The price

  1. The articles/products/services (also from third parties) that the Entrepreneur sells and supplies to the Consumer may be subject to interim changes. For example, they can be changed without prior notice without giving any reason. Orders that have already been placed at the time of the price change are made according to the prices agreed at the time of the order.

  2. The Entrepreneur can also offer products or services whose prices are subject to fluctuations in the financial market and over which the Entrepreneur has no influence, with variable prices. This dependence on fluctuations and the fact that any prices quoted are target prices are stated in the offer.

  3. The prices of products or services stated in the offer include VAT. The VAT (component) will also be clearly stated. 

  4. The content of the Website has been compiled with the greatest care. However, the entrepreneur cannot guarantee that all information on the Website is correct and complete at all times. All prices and other information on the Website and in other materials originating from Dorne International B.V. and/or FÉ Quartz are therefore subject to obvious typing, programming and printing errors. The Entrepreneur accepts no liability for the consequences of apparent errors as well as incorrect prices caused by, for example, the internet server or by hackers, computer viruses, etc. In all the aforementioned cases, the Entrepreneur is not obliged to deliver the product according to the incorrect price.

Article 11 – Warranty and conformity

  1. At the Entrepreneur the Consumer is entitled to the legal guarantee. 

  2. The Entrepreneur, Dorne International B.V. hereby refers the consumer, and also before he/she starts using the lamp, emphatically to the 'Instructions for Use'/User Manual, which is also placed on the website and of which also - when sent to the consumer -  a QR code on a separate card is included. It is the responsibility of the Consumer to read these Instructions in its entirety and to familiarize carefully with the contents. In addition to product features, the consumer can read, among other things, how to handle the lamp, where the lamp can be used (in any case, dry indoor spaces, always keep away from moisture) and how the consumer should take care of the lamp (with caution). Very important (responsibility of the consumer): In addition to using and acting according to 'common sense', the consumer must of course also inform himself of the 'Safety information', (other) information and instructions described in the Instructions for Use/User Manual. 

  3. The Entrepreneur guarantees that the products and/or services meet the agreement, the specifications stated in the offer and the reasonable requirements of reliability and/or usability. 

  4. Any defects or incorrectly delivered products (deviating from the Agreement) must be reported to the Entrepreneur in writing by email ( within 14 days of receipt of the products by the Consumer and to inform him thereof. Due to the various special characteristics of selenite, each piece of crystal - even of the same size - varies in weight, shape and color. As a result, the so-called physical design of the lamp is excluded with regard to possibility. 'wrong delivery/defects', as well as any warranty and the Consumer cannot make any claim on this. Due to the characteristics of selenite (soft and porous), it can occur (to a limited extent) that incidentally a small piece 'crumbles', so it is not covered by the warranty. The entrepreneur therefore advises the consumer to handle the FÉ lamp and its parts with the necessary caution. 

  5. If the Entrepreneur considers the complaint to be well-founded, the relevant products will be partially or fully repaired, replaced or reimbursed after consultation with the Consumer. With due observance of the Article regarding liability, the maximum compensation is equal to the price paid by the Consumer for the product. The consumer is expressly pointed out on the website, but also in these General Terms and Conditions, that each FÉ lamp is a unique item, with an unrepeatable design, color, size, weight, structure, so that it is impossible that a possible replacement product has the same characteristics. 

  6. The guarantee does not apply in any case if: a) the consumer has repaired and/or processed the delivered products himself or has had them repaired/edited by third parties; b) the delivered products have been exposed to abnormal conditions or have otherwise been treated carelessly or are contrary to acting in accordance with our instructions and (safety) information stated in the Instructions for Use/User Manual, which were handed over to the consumer by QR code upon delivery as well as on are listed on the website and can be viewed and downloaded again here. c) there are other circumstances beyond the entrepreneur's control (such as weather conditions and, for example, damage caused during transport).

  7. The warranty does not cover normal 'wear and tear' on objects, especially those to, for example, lamps, dimmer cables and fixtures. Light sources are not covered by the warranty, for example, because they are subject to power surges or may fail due to lightning strikes and humidity. Also in case of wear and defects as a result of negligent maintenance, no claim can be made against the entrepreneur. 

  8. Entrepreneur Dorne International B.V. is not liable for consequential damage as a result of a product that does not function properly, or that it is used incompetently or incorrectly.

  2. The place of delivery is the address that the consumer has made known to the Entrepreneur

  3. With due observance of what is stated in Article 4 of these general terms and conditions, the entrepreneur will execute accepted orders expeditiously but at the latest within 30 days, unless a different delivery period has been agreed.

  4. After dissolution, the entrepreneur will immediately refund the amount that the consumer has paid. Consumers are not eligible for compensation. 

    FYI: Dorne International B.V. strives to execute your order within 7 days. If the delivery is delayed, or if an order cannot or only partially be executed, the consumer will be notified of this within reason as soon as possible after he has placed the order.


  5. The risk of damage and/or loss of products rests with the entrepreneur until the moment of delivery to the consumer or a representative designated in advance and made known to the entrepreneur, unless expressly agreed otherwise. 

  6. As soon as the products to be delivered have been delivered to the specified delivery address, the risk with regard to these products is transferred to the Consumer. If expressly agreed otherwise, the risk will pass to the Consumer sooner. If the Consumer decides to collect the products, the risk is transferred when the products are transferred.
