MobilityPlus expressly asks for the cooperation of the Customer to communicate any violations of Intellectual Property Rights to them so that MobilityPlus is able to take appropriate actions.
12.8. If any component of the Charging Stations or Services is either (a) the subject of a claim for such infringement and MobilityPlus reasonably determines that infringement is likely, or (b) if a court judgment not subject to appeal finds that such infringement has occurred, then MobilityPlus may, at its option and expense, (i) acquire for Customer the right from such third party to use the component or (ii) replace or modify the component with other suitable and reasonably equivalent components so that the component becomes non-infringing.

The Consumer must unambiguously inform MobilityPlus by email (at the following address firstname.lastname@example.org) of his/her decision to withdraw from the purchase of the goods or services before the period of 14 days has expired. The Consumer will then receive instruction on how to return, at his/her expense, the Charging Card to MobilityPlus. The Customer may also revoke the Distance Contract by completing the model revocation form, accessible on [website] and transmitting it by e-mail (email@example.com) to MobilityPlus within the revocation period.
17.3. If the Consumer has allowed the provision of services to begin during the withdrawal period, he/she shall pay an amount which is either proportional to what has already been provided at the time of the withdrawal compared to the full performance of the contract or, where possible to identify it, corresponds to the specific services purchased.
18.1. MobilityPlus may at any time transfer or sub-contract all or part of its rights and/or obligations under the Agreement to a third party without the consent of the Customer. This transfer or subcontracting cannot, however, have the effect of reducing the guarantees of the Customer. This can be done without the consent of the Customer and without any compensation.
18.2. The Customer can only transfer its rights and/or obligations arising out of the contract, in whole or in part, to a third party with the prior written consent of MobilityPlus and provided that both the Customer and the transferee have duly completed and signed the transfer form provided for this purpose to MobilityPlus.
19.1. The Agreement and all possible disputes arising therefrom shall be exclusively governed by Belgian law, to the exclusion of any conflict of law rule under which the law of another jurisdiction would be applicable, and to the exclusion of the Vienna Sales Convention.
19.2. Any form of dispute, disagreement or claim arising from or related to the Agreement, or the non-performance, termination or invalidity thereof, may only be submitted to the Corporate Court of Ghent, Ghent Division for commercial matters, or in civil matters to the competent court of the judicial district of East Flanders, Ghent Division. However, if a Consumer is involved in the dispute, the court of the domicile of (one of) the defendant-Consumer will be competent.
20.1. Notices to be given under this Agreement shall always be addressed to MobilityPlus using the contact details provided on the website: https://www.mobilityplus.be/en/contact . Notices required by this Agreement to be given "in writing" may also be given by e-mail, with the exception of notices required to be given by registered post.
20.2. The Customer authorizes MobilityPlus to refer to the Customer as MobilityPlus customer in respect of potential customers and, for this purpose, to mention the logos and company name of the Customer on its website, in brochures, at trade fairs and in presentations.
20.3. Delivery dates mentioned in the Agreement or any other document are only indicative and not binding. Delivery dates may depend on the availability of parts. MobilityPlus shall not be liable for any damage resulting from late delivery.
20.4. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the Parties with respect to the subject matter of this Agreement and supersedes all prior statements, documents, publications, negotiations and agreements, written or oral, between the Parties with respect to the subject matter of the Agreement.
20.5. MobilityPlus shall act as an independent contractor in the performance of the Agreement. Nothing in the Agreement shall be interpreted so that MobilityPlus would be an agent of the Customer, or the Parties would form a partnership or commercial cooperation agreement.
20.6. The nullity, non-applicability, invalidity or unenforceability of any provision or part of a provision of the Agreement shall not affect the operation of the remaining provisions. Such a provision stands autonomously with respect to the other provisions, without affecting the remaining provisions in terms of validity or enforceability. The disputed provision shall be deemed to be inapplicable and shall be replaced by the Parties with a provision which corresponds as closely as possible to the objective and spirit of the provision concerned, the intention of the Parties and the economic balance of the Agreement. (Sub) Titles in this Agreement have a purely illustrative value.
20.8. The failure of either Party to insist upon strict compliance by the other Party with any obligation under this Agreement, regardless of the duration of such failure, shall not constitute a waiver of its right to require strict compliance in the future.
20.9. The Customer declares to have provided MobilityPlus with all the required information prior to the acceptance of the Service by MobilityPlus. The Customer shall immediately notify MobilityPlus in writing of any change in the information which he has declared to MobilityPlus at the conclusion of the Agreement or thereafter (e.g. new address, new company name or new bank direct debit account number). Costs arising from non-compliance with this obligation shall be payable in full by the Customer.
20.10. MobilityPlus reserves the right to modify the General Conditions and the modalities of service at any time. In this case, MobilityPlus shall inform the Customer of the modified General Conditions at least one (1) month before they come into effect. If these modifications are to the disadvantage of the Customer, the Customer shall be entitled to terminate the contract with MobilityPlus, subject to notification by registered letter within the month following notification of the modification of the General Conditions. This termination shall not give rise to any rights to compensation, subject to the payment by each Party to the other of all sums already due.
