Terms and Conditions of Relieve

General provisions

These general conditions define, without prejudice to the application of specific conditions, the respective obligations of the Relieve Group in connection with all services provided by the Relieve Group whose head office is located at Avenue Brugmann 85, in 1190 Forest referenced at the Crossroads Bank for Enterprises under company number BE0782560762, hereinafter referred to as the "seller", and any professional buyer or any consumer wishing to make a purchase via the seller's website, hereinafter referred to as the "buyer".

By checking the box to accept the general conditions at the time of his order, the buyer expressly acknowledges having had access to these conditions, having read them, understood them, and accepted them without reservation, it being understood that any order for a product via our website requires consultation and express acceptance of the general sales conditions. These general sales conditions can be saved or printed by the customer.

The provisions to which there is no express derogation remain applicable. Only deviations subject to an express written agreement can modify the application of these general conditions. It is agreed that the specifically accepted provisions take precedence over the general ones, in case of discordance. Furthermore, it is expressly agreed that in case of contradiction between the customer's general conditions and those of the Relieve Group, only the latter will prevail.

The seller reserves the right to modify its terms of sale at any time. In this case, the applicable conditions will be those in force on the date of the order by the buyer.

By:

Buyer: any natural person who has reached majority and has full legal capacity or, failing that, the legal representative of this person. In the latter case, the legal representative is bound by these general conditions.

Consumer: any natural person who acquires or uses for purposes excluding any professional or commercial character, products put on the market.

Characteristics of the goods and services offered

The products and services offered are those listed in the catalogue published on the seller's website, subject to available stock. Each product is accompanied by a description provided by the seller based on the description given by the supplier. The photographs in the catalogue are strictly for informational purposes and present an accurate image but are not contractual in nature since they cannot guarantee perfect similarity with the physical products.

  • Make the payment under the conditions provided;
  • Confirm his order and payment.

The Relieve Group will automatically send a complete written summary by email of the order (ordered products, amount paid excluding and including VAT, delivery method, date and time of pickup, and place of pickup). The sale is deemed perfect upon order confirmation by the seller. No shipment of goods will be made without order confirmation and receipt of full payment for it.

Products and services are offered subject to available stock. In case of unavailability of an item, the seller will inform the buyer by email as soon as possible. The buyer will have the option to wait (in case of temporary unavailability) or cancel the order of unavailable items at no charge.

Duration

These conditions apply throughout the duration of the order, our services, as well as the delivery of goods and to all relations between the buyer and the seller.

Delivery - transport

Deliveries are made to the address indicated on the order form which can only be in the geographical area mentioned in article 8 of these general conditions; by pickup at a specified point of the buyer's choice validated during the order. In case of absence during delivery at the address provided by the buyer, he can contact the seller within 48 hours to agree on another delivery date. If not or if the buyer neglects or refuses to take delivery of the ordered goods, the seller reserves the right to demand the execution of the contract or to consider, after prior formal notice, it as being terminated by right at the fault of the buyer. In the latter case, the seller will retain an amount equivalent to 30% of the sale price as compensation.

In the case of sale to a consumer, the goods are transported at the seller's risk until the delivery of the goods to the delivery address specified by the buyer. In the case of sale to a professional, transport is at the buyer's risk. The delivery times are 15 days from the receipt of payment. In case of delay in delivery, if this is at least fifteen working days and only in the case of a non-customized order (regularly stocked item), the buyer may renounce his purchase without compensation, for neither of the two parties, provided he notifies the seller by e-mail within 3 days following the notification of the delivery delay by the seller. The buyer will then be refunded by bank transfer to his bank account for the total amount of his order including transport costs (if incurred at the time of the order) within 15 working days. The parties will then be fully released from their respective obligations. In all cases, the following circumstances release the seller from his obligations regarding deadlines:

  1. Cases of force majeure (including, in particular, technical incidents, supplier delay, and labor shortage);
  2. If the payment conditions are not met;

Once expressed, they have another 14 days to return the good. This right of withdrawal does not apply to the professional buyer. This right is only applicable for the employee portal in B2C. This right is not applicable in B2B i.e., through the Relieve platform with beneficiary organizations.

The consumer buyer can also complete the process by returning the following form: https://economie.fgov.be/sites/default/files/Files/Forms/Formulaire-de-retractation.pdf

In accordance with Article 1649quater §2 of the Civil Code, the consumer is required to inform the seller of the existence of a lack of conformity within two months from the day the consumer noticed the defect.

For used goods, the warranty period is one year from the delivery of the goods. 

This warranty only covers defects in conformity existing at the time of the delivery of the goods. Defects or damage due to misuse, such as water damage, oxidation, drop or shock, negligence, and wear, are not covered by the warranty. Likewise, repairs carried out by technicians not approved by our services will result in the cancellation of the warranty.

The invoice or the delivery note acts as a warranty title and must be kept by the consumer and produced in the original.

For a professional or an organization, a 6-month warranty will be applied if the material is defective or with proof of non-conformity. It will then be either refunded or exchanged for credit on the platform.
