Reduction in returns value: if it appears that the customer used the item over and above what was necessary to assess whether they actually wanted to retain it, Hopper shall be entitled to apply a reduction in value for the purpose of repayment (e.g. a garment that is returned dirty or with a funny smell, shoes with damaged soles, etc.).
Scouts & Gidsen Vlaanderen vzw Hopper Winkel shall not be liable for damage, theft or loss when an item is returned.
Article VI.53 of the Code of Economic Law stipulates that the user shall not be able to exercise their right of withdrawal for:
1° service contracts, following the implementation of the service, providing it went ahead with the consumer's specific prior consent and the consumer acknowledged that they would lose their right of withdrawal as soon as the company had implemented the agreement in full;
2° the supply or provision of goods or services the price of which is linked to fluctuations in the financial markets, which the company cannot influence and which might occur within the cancellation period;
3° the supply of goods made to the consumer's specifications or clearly intended for a specific person;
4° the supply of goods that spoil quickly or have a limited shelf life;
5° the supply of sealed goods not suitable for return, for health or hygiene reasons or if the seal was broken following delivery;
6° the supply of goods that by their very nature were irretrievably mixed with other products following delivery;

8° agreements whereby the consumer has specifically requested the company to pay a visit to carry out urgent repairs or maintenance on site. However, if during such a visit the company provides additional services not specifically requested by the consumer, or supplies goods other than spare parts required to carry out the maintenance or repairs, the right of withdrawal shall apply to those additional services or goods;
9° the supply of sealed audio and video recordings and sealed computer software, if the seal was broken following delivery;
10° the supply of newspapers, magazines or periodicals, with the exception of agreements pertaining to a subscription to such publications;
