“Agreement”: any agreement between our customers (“you”) and Tover North America, including offers accepted by you, concerning the sales, licensing or delivery of a Product.
“Product(s)”: a Tovertafel (including accessories), a software license regarding the games, services and/or training and support.
“OP&L”: our Open Play and Learn licenses as further described in our quotations.
- These GTC apply to all our (Tover North America and its successors in title) offers, quotations, assignments and Agreements with you as well as any other legal relationship between you and us resulting from or related to the same. These GTC form an inseparable part of every Agreement.
- These GTC also apply for the benefit of all persons who are employed by us, including third parties or auxiliary persons engaged by us in the execution of any Agreement.
- Your purchase- or other conditions do not apply, unless we have explicitly accepted these in writing.
- All our offers and quotations are without obligation unless explicitly stated otherwise in writing. We are entitled to withdraw or amend the offer and / or quotation prior to your acceptance thereof in writing. Quotations and offers are valid for the duration of the period stated in the offer. If no period of validity is stated, quotations and offers are valid for a period of 30 (thirty) days. We are entitled to withdraw or amend pre-orders even after your acceptance thereof in writing, by giving you written notice prior to the moment of invoicing. If you don’t agree with the amendments you are entitled to cancel the pre-order.
- If the provisions of these GTC conflict with or deviate from one or more provisions of the Agreement, the provisions of the Agreement shall prevail, but only if and insofar as the Agreement explicitly deviates from these GTC.
- The Products are delivered EXWorks, Incoterms 2010, Utrecht, the Netherlands. If included in our offer, we will arrange shipment of the Products to the address you provide, unless agreed otherwise. Games are made available for remote upload on the Tovertafel via the Internet.
- Upon delivery of the Tovertafel, you will visually inspect it to determine whether or not the packaging is damaged upon arrival, in which case you will report this, preferably in the presence of the courier, and immediately notify us in writing (along with a copy of the proof of delivery and the damage report).
- Deliveries are subject to stock availability. Specified delivery dates are estimates only and not binding or to be regarded as deadlines, unless expressly agreed otherwise in writing. The mere exceeding of a delivery deadline shall not cause Tover to be in default.
- Insofar as delivery is delayed due to circumstances of Force Majeure as defined in Article 13 sub h., the delivery period shall be extended accordingly. This also applies insofar as such circumstances occur with suppliers of Tover.
- Risk of loss or damage will pass to you (i) upon delivery of the Tovertafel or (ii) with respect to licenses for games including updates, the moment we make these available for download on the Tovertafel. You are responsible for connecting to the internet to actually download (new) games and/or updates.

Installation of the Product
- Installation of the Tovertafel after delivery is your responsibility, unless explicitly agreed otherwise in writing. The installation must be carried out by a technical person in accordance with the technical specifications and requirements and the installation instructions we provide to you. Upon first request, you will sign a document stating that you have fulfilled the aforementioned obligation.

What is covered by this warranty?
We warrant that the Tovertafel2 and the mounting system will not contain any material and manufacturing defects in case of normal use for the effective period of the warranty.
In this context, normal use means that the Tovertafel2 is solely used within the specifications of the user manual/operating instructions and that regularly scheduled maintenance is performed.
This means that if in the Tovertafel2 or the mounting system during the warranty period nevertheless defects occur under normal use and maintenance and these are due to causes inherent to the product, we will repair or, at our discretion, replace (the defective component of) the product at no cost.
During the warranty period, periodic software updates and improvements to licensed games will be made available. If defects occur in the licensed games, we will strive to resolve these defects and make the results available with the next scheduled update of the games.
The warranty is valid with due observance of the following conditions:
The warranty period starts on the delivery date of the Tovertafel and expires at the end of the period set out below.
