4. Delivery

The delivery times quoted by HELIX are merely an indication. If the estimated delivery time is exceeded, the buyer is not entitled to compensation. The buyer does not have the right to cancel the order or annul the agreement, unless the excess in delivery time is such that he can reasonably be expected not to maintain the agreement. In that case he is entitled to cancel the order or annul the agreement as far as it is necessary. Only the buyer will be liable for incorrect delivery addresses. Supplying a wrong delivery address may cause extra costs. If the ordered goods are not delivered, the buyer will be reimbursed without interest or any other compensation.
