3    Scope of Application

These general terms and conditions apply to the purchase of goods on the website www.shade.be ordered by the Customer.

These general terms and conditions form an integral part of the Agreement between the Customer and La Fabrika bv and exclude the Customer’s own terms and conditions. These may only be deviated from when agreed in writing.

4    Acceptance

The Customer explicitly acknowledges that he has read these terms and conditions and fully accepts these terms and conditions without reservation.

The Customer agrees that the general terms and conditions are written in English and that he understands the content of it.

5    Severability Clause

Parties acknowledge that the invalidation of a clause in these general terms and conditions does not invalidate the entire agreement. If an article is declared illegal and void, the other articles remain in full force.

6    Content

All products, text, images, descriptions, data, and other material provided on the website www.shade.be, as well as the selection, assembly and arrangement thereof, are referred to collectively as the "Content."

The Content may contain errors, omissions, or typographical errors or may be out of date. La Fabrika bv has the right to change, delete, or update any Content at any time and without prior notice. The Content is provided for informational purposes only and is not binding. Unless otherwise noted, the content of this website including brands, images, logos, drawings, sound, data, product- or company names, text, etc. is protected by worldwide copyright and other proprietary laws and treaty provisions.

7    Quotes & Acceptance of Orders

All offers are obligation free quotes. An order is only binding when it is explicitly accepted by La Fabrika bv in writing.

La Fabrika bv is entitled to refuse orders or to impose conditions, unless otherwise agreed upon. All product information, prices and order information can be subject to change or correction at any time. By placing an order the Customer warrants that he is legally capable of entering into binding contracts and that he is (in the case of an individual) at least 18 years old.

La Fabrika bv reserves the right to cancel orders, without compensation, in case of an event beyond its control, as mentioned in article 16.

8    Delivery

Stated delivery times are not binding unless they are expressly agreed as binding. Products are delivered wherever possible within the timeframe indicated during the individual order confirmation, but it is explicitly stated that the delivery dates are non-binding and are given by indication only.  Therefore, La Fabrika bv is not responsible for delays in delivery and any delay in delivery dates will not entitle the Customer to claim any compensation, to refuse the delivery or to entirely or partly cancel the agreement or entirely or partly suspend the fulfillment of any obligation of the Customer under the agreement.

The Customer bears all risks if an error in the delivery address should occur. In such a case, La Fabrika bv is entitled to claim additional costs.

Unless otherwise confirmed in writing, prices do not include transport and delivery costs of the goods to the Customer. The costs for transport and delivery are indicated separately. Delays in delivery do not constitute grounds for termination of the agreement or for the payment of damages to the Customer.

La Fabrika bv reserves the right to carry out partial deliveries. In the event of a partial delivery, the Customer is not entitled to refuse delivery. In the event of non-delivery of the goods due to a material breach by La Fabrika bv, any amount paid by the Customer will be reimbursed without interest or other compensation.

The Customer must ensure that the goods can be delivered by La Fabrika bv in a normal manner at the agreed place and time, and thus ensure amongst other things that the place of delivery is accessible. If these conditions are not met, the Customer is required to compensate La Fabrika bv for all damages, including waiting time, to reimburse storage costs and costs for the preservation of the goods. In case of an unreasonable refusal of delivery, no reimbursement to the Customer will take place and La Fabrika bv is entitled to sell the goods to a third party.

Delivery will only take place if full payment is received for the principal, interest and applicable charges.

9    Returns & Cancellations

Under regulation of the Belgian Law on trade and the information and protection of consumers of 14 July 1991, the purchaser is allowed to inform the seller that he/she has decided not to proceed with the purchase within 14 working days of receipt of the item.

However, each Shade paint order is personalized and custom mixed. The right to cancel, exchange or return does therefore not exist.

10    Prices & Payments

Invoices are payable in full to our head office at rue Antoine Danssaerstraat 97, 1000 Brussels, Belgium by the due date and without discount unless otherwise indicated on the invoice. All prices displayed on www.shade.be are quoted in Euros and include VAT (21%).

In order to be admissible, all complaints related to invoices must be formulated in detail and sent by registered letter within eight (8) days following receipt of the relevant invoice. An interest of 1% per month is due on any overdue amount from the date on which payment was due to the date of actual payment, without a notice of default or reminder being required.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Law of 2 August 2002 is applicable on all agreements between La Fabrika bv and professional Customers.

In the event of non-payment and in the event a notice of default sent by normal post has not been effective within 14 days, a fixed fee will be payable equal to 10% of the amount due.

In the event of non-payment or in the event of any other breach of the Customer’s obligations under the agreement, La Fabrika bv reserves the right to suspend the execution of the agreement or immediately terminate all agreements with the Customer by operation of law, without implication of default and without the need for any judicial intervention and to demand payment of all amounts due, even with respect to invoices not yet past due, or to deliver goods only upon payment in cash, notwithstanding any earlier agreements or any other rights to which La Fabrika bv may be entitled. If La Fabrika bv does not immediately invoke the shortcomings or failures of the Customer, this can not be considered as a relinquishment of the right to invoke and to pursue these shortcomings or failures at a later date.

11    Duties & Taxes

The customer is responsible for any additional taxes and duties. La Fabrika bv is not responsible for any fees charged by customs.

12    Right of Ownership

All delivered goods remain the property of La Fabrika bv until the invoice is paid in full, including all costs and taxes, interest and fees. In the event of non-payment, La Fabrika bv is entitled to retake possession of the goods and to reimburse the costs thereof.

13   Complaints

The Customer must ensure to inspect the entire delivery, the packaging and its contents, immediately when delivered.When the packaging shows any signs of damage, the Customer can accept the delivery, but immediately note the damage on the freight documents by stating, “Received with reservation”.

In order to be admissible, complaints must reach La Fabrika bv: (a) in the case of complaints related to non-conformity of deliveries, within eight (8) days following receipt of the goods and (b) in the case of hidden faults, within eight (8) days following the discovery of the fault or the moment by which time such a discovery could reasonably be expected to have taken place. Acceptance of the goods by the Customer covers every possible fault or non-conformity observable at that time.

14    Warranty

La Fabrika’s warranty is limited to the legal warranty. La Fabrika bv may only be held liable for damage in the event of gross negligence. La Fabrika bv is not liable for any indirect damages whatsoever which may have occurred to the Customer.

Guarantees do not cover abnormal or inappropriate use of products, defects and their consequences associated with the use of the product other than for its intended purpose, or defects and their consequences associated with any external cause.

Products may only be returned with prior authorization from La Fabrika bv. After La Fabrika bv has given its written approval, the product will be replaced or refunded, depending on the availability of similar products and the Customer’s wishes.

15    Force Majeure

La Fabrika bv is not responsible for delays in the execution or the non-execution of its commitments arising as a result of events outside its normal control, including but not limited to  production interruptions, difficulties in acquiring or shortages of raw materials, workforce, energy or transport or delays in transport, strikes, lock outs, work interruptions or other collective labour disputes, whether or not they are directly related to ourselves or our suppliers and this even in the event these events are foreseeable.
