This website offers visitors collectible books and associated data and items. By accessing or using the website of our service, you approve that you have read, understood, and agree to be bound by these Terms.

In order to use our website and/or receive our services, you must be at least 18 years of age, or of the legal age of majority in your jurisdiction, and possess the legal authority, right and freedom to enter into these Terms as a binding agreement. You are not allowed to use this website and/or receive services if doing so is prohibited in your country or under any law or regulation applicable to you.

Commercial Terms

When buying an item, you agree that: (i) you are responsible for reading the full item listing and inspecting all associated pictures of the item listing before making a commitment to buy it: (ii) you enter into a legally binding contract to purchase an item when you commit to buy an item and you complete the check-out payment process.

The prices we charge for using our services / our products are listed on the website.

Additional information about pricing and sales tax is available on the payments page.

The fee for subscription services and any other charges you may incur in connection with your use of the service, such as taxes and possible transaction fees, will be charged on a monthly basis to your payment method.

Consigned items might ship from the selling party directly and not from CBV in the Netherlands. Shipping costs displayed by the website in the shop will not always be accurate in those circumstances. Differences between initial and final shipping costs will be settled by CBV in an additional invoice or reimbursement for the buyer once final shipping costs are available. These can vary based on the locations of the seller and buyer.

Return and Refund Policy

We accept returns on any item that is damaged, defective or the incorrect item was shipped, provided that you contact us within 7 days of receipt of the item. If you are returning an item and it is not being replaced, then a full refund is issued after we have received the merchandise back. If you have not contacted us within 7 days of receiving your order, we cannot offer you a refund or exchange.

We must receive the damaged or incorrect item back before a replacement is provided, or a refund is issued. To be eligible for a return, your item must be unused and in the same condition that you received it. We reserve the right to ask for pictures of the damage or incorrect item. It must also be in the original shipping box. Customer is responsible for return shipping to us. We will provide a return label to cover costs.

For any undamaged product, simply return it with its included accessories and packaging along with the original receipt (or gift receipt) within 7 days of the date you have received the product, and on receipt of the returned item we will replace it or offer a refund based upon the original payment method. In addition, please note the following: (i) Products can be returned only in the country in which they were originally purchased; and (ii) Return shipping costs and insurance are not covered for undamaged items.
