Springest moved! (Springest moved to a new office!) We moved to a new office. Our new address is: Van Diemenstraat 192, 1013CP Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Therefore, we changed our address in the General Terms and Conditions.

This condition already applied to Suppliers, and has now been made explicit through article 5.8. First and foremost.(,) Suppliers are free to determine the prices of their products. The only condition set by Springest is that the price of your product on your website is not lower than the price of the same product on Springest. This condition is set to ensure transparency for our users. Additionally, Springest aims to maintain the (a) good relationship between Springest and Suppliers.
Article 17.5 was added to the General Terms and Conditions:
17.5 Springest remains entitled to use all Content and Intellectual Property that the Supplier has posted on the Platform as stipulated in Article 13.3. Springest is not required after termination of the Agreement to provide to and/or to convert any Content to the Supplier.
After termination of the agreement between Springest and the Supplier, Springest wants to keep publishing users' reviews of the Supplier's products. These reviews belong to Springest's own content. Accompanying these reviews, we want to show the Supplier's logo. For this reason, clause 17.5 was added. This is to improve the user experience of Springest.
