All orders are invoiced in euros and paid in euros.
The Client is solely responsible for the payment of invoices addressed to him.

9.2. Payment method
9.2.1. Express Buy
In Express Buy, the Client can only pay using his bankcard. All payments should be made at once and at the time of the training purchase.
Accepted bankcards are VISA, MASTERCARD and AMERICAN EXPRESS. The Client guarantees to BUTTERFLY that he has all rights to use this payment method when validating the order. The client recognises that by filing in the appropriate fields with payment information, this provides his full acceptance of this payment to BUTTERFLY for all due amount.
Payment by credit card implies an immediate debit.
9.2.2. Deferred payment
The method of payment by default is bankcard. If the Client wants to change the method of payment (cheque or bank transfer), he has the possibility to request a payment change to BUTTERFLY from his account in the dedicated area.
In case of deferred payment and in the event of late or non-payment BUTTERFLY could without any formal notice take measures as described in article 9.7. of these terms and conditions.
9.3. Secure payment
When purchasing training on the website, the client is redirected to Ogone as a payment system. At this stage, the client will be asked to fill in corresponding fields with his bankcard number, expiry date and control number. The various stages of the payment process between the Client and Ogone are fully encrypted and protected. The protocol used is SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) linked with e-banking. This means that information linked to the order and the bankcard number do not circulate unencrypted on the internet. The bankcard number is not printed out onto documents, invoices, credit card receipts or other print-outs. Besides, BUTTERFLY will never access the Client payment information. Ogone does not keep card numbers once the payment transaction has been transmitted to BUTTERFLY.
9.4. Order process and validation
Registration can only be made online via the website.
Prior to order confirmation, the Client will be able to proofread his order summary and total amount due, as well as to modify possible mistakes.

Consequently, BUTTERFLY can in no event be held liable for non-performance or poor performance of contractual services due to the particular Client order data entry.
The effective date of enrolment into a service or training is the validation of the order.

The acknowledgement of receipt is sent to the Client by E-Mail as soon as the Client order is processed. It is legally binding proof of order when combined with the original invoice.

9.6. Right of cancellation
If the Client is a natural person and pursuant to Regulation 6 of European Communities (Protection of Consumers in Respect of Contracts Made by Means of Distance Communication) Regulations, 2001, the Client benefits from a period of 14 working days in which to cancel the distance contract without giving a reason, and, if the Client exercises that right of cancellation, he or she shall not incur any charges or penalties for so doing. Subject to this provision, the 14 day period shall begin from the day the Client accepts these terms and conditions.
Unless there is agreement between BUTTERFLY and the Client to the contrary, the Client may not exercise the right of cancellation referred to in this paragraph once the purchased training has been opened/started.
BUTTERFLY reminds that this right does not apply to legal person.
9.7. Measures taken by BUTTERFLY in case of delay or absence of payment
Unless otherwise mentioned on the quote by BUTTERFLY, payment in full to BUTTERFLY shall be made no later than 30 days from the date of invoice. In the event of late payments and without any formal notice being required:
- The Client will be liable for late payment penalties of one and a half times the prevailing base legal interest rate applied to the entire sum in question
- If the delay is equal or greater to three months, all services and training in progress can be unilaterally interrupted until full payment is received
Moreover, in cases of returned or failed payment, BUTTERFLY could ask the client to pay 100 euro (tax excluded) for denied payment.
All disagreements concerning the issues of invoicing, and the nature of the services that are under reclamation must be sent in writing via Recorded Delivery with Proof of postal delivery or by fax, respecting a period of notice that is 8 days from the date that the invoice has been delivered. In the absence of these details, the Client acknowledges the acceptation of its invoice. In the cases of dispute, the total outstanding amount of unpaid invoices or debits (including the amount corresponding to the services that are disputed), must be paid by the due date. Once the period allotted for payment has effectively run out, the Client will be expected to honour all of their outstanding debts and to redress immediately their financial irregularities. From this point onwards, the client’s complaint or dispute will no longer be accepted as a valid contestation.
In case of disputes concerning the nature of BUTTERFLY’s services or Client use of the website, the information saved on the electronic payment tool and in the framework of automatic collection of information by BUTTERFLY could be used as evidence between both parties.
ARTICLE 10: FORCE MAJEURE
