SECTION 8 - CHANGES TO THESE TERMS TERMS AND CONDITIONS
8.1 - We may amend these conditions insofar as this is necessary to adapt to developments which were not foreseeable at the time of conclusion of the contract and which we have not caused or cannot influence and the non-consideration of which would not insignificantly disturb the balance of the contractual relationship and insofar as essential provisions of the contractual relationship are not affected by this. Essential provisions are those concerning the type and scope of the contractually agreed services and the term including the provisions on termination.
8.3 - We may change the contractually agreed Services if and to the extent that this is necessary for good reason not foreseeable at the time of Conclusion of Contract and this change does not shift the relationship between performance and counter-performance to the disadvantage of you, so that the change is reasonable for you. A good reason exists if new technical developments necessitate a change in performance, since we can no longer render the Services in the previous contractually agreed form or if new or amended statutory or other sovereign requirements require a change in performance.
8.5 - In the event of changes which are not exclusively in your favour, you are entitled to terminate the contract in text form (e.g. by letter or e-mail) without observing a period of notice at the time the changes take effect.

b) significant breaches of the obligations under Clause 7 in the Review of the Products.
c) you breach your obligations under Clause 4 repeatedly and despite previous warning.
9.5 - Text form (e.g. by e-mail or letter) is sufficient to declare the termination in due form.
SECTION 10 - MISCELLANEOUS
10.1 - The contractual language is English.
10.2 - Should specific provisions of this contract wholly or partially violate mandatory law or be void or ineffective for other reasons, the remaining provisions remain unaffected.

We are not obliged or willing to participate in a dispute settlement procedure before a consumer arbitration body.
10.4 - The contractual relations between the parties are governed by the law of Belgium excluding the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG).
