In such a case, the remaining terms of these general terms and conditions for which no explicit and written deviation has been agreed upon shall remain in full force and effect.
2.6. Should one or more of the terms or part of a term of these general terms and conditions be declared null and void, such nullity shall not affect the validity of the other terms of these terms and conditions, which shall remain in full force and effect.

3.3. Images, drawings, sizes, weights, colors or other properties displayed by iRepairshop on the webshop attempt to provide a faithful representation of the goods, services and/or digital content on offer.

The Customer is not entitled to any form of compensation for this.
5.6. Cancellation can and is free of charge during the first 14 days after invoice date. In case of cancellation after these 14 days, the Customer shall owe a fixed compensation of fifteen (15) % of the price of the order, barring proof of higher damages by iRepairshop.

If the Customer has to pick up the order at a branch of iRepairshop or other predetermined pick-up point and fails to do so, a storage fee may be charged. In the period after the predetermined pickup date and the moment the Customer actually comes to pick up the order, the Customer bears all risks, cases of force majeure or destruction regarding the uncollected goods.
5.10. The Customer is always responsible for a wrongly communicated delivery address. iRepairshop cannot be held responsible for any damage and/or (additional) costs resulting from a wrongly communicated delivery address.
5.11. Delivery terms are those indicated on the order form or confirmation email. All specified delivery and execution terms are purely indicative and therefore not binding, unless expressly agreed otherwise in writing with the Customer.
5.12. Orders placed on the website constitute a "distance contract", the execution of which in principle takes place within thirty (30) days after confirmation of the order by iRepairshop. The goods ordered will be delivered to the Customer's given (home) address within this period, unless otherwise agreed or expressly stipulated by iRepairshop. Failure to deliver the goods in question within the aforementioned delivery period of (30) days may not give rise to compensation or dissolution of the agreement. In such a case, the Customer shall request iRepairshop to make the delivery within an additional period appropriate to the circumstances.
5.13. The Customer retains the right to terminate the agreement only if iRepairshop falls short of its obligation to deliver the order to the specified delivery address within the additional time period specified in the previous article.

If the Customer is absent at the time of delivery, the Customer must follow the procedure proposed by the external carrier.
5.15. The delivery of the ordered goods comes into effect from the moment they have been physically offered to the Customer or designated third party recipient. If an offered delivery is unsuccessful due to a shortcoming by the Customer or the third party recipient designated by the Customer, the costs of a new delivery attempt shall be borne entirely by the Customer.
5.16. The Contract between the Customer on the one hand and iRepairshop on the other starts from the order of goods by the Customer and is deemed to be completed after full payment by the Customer on the one hand and delivery by iRepairshop on the other.

In the event of non-payment on the due date, the Customer shall automatically and without notice be liable to pay interest on an annual basis at the discount rate of the National Bank of Belgium plus 2%. The mere expiry of the due date shall constitute notice of default in accordance with Article 1139 of the Civil Code.

VAT and with a minimum of fifty (50) EUR), by law and without notice of default. If the Customer remains in default after a reminder has been sent, the invoice amount shall be increased by a further 10% (with a minimum of fifty (50) EUR).
6.5. Any non-payment of an invoice by the due date or any default in payment shall render all invoices, even those not yet due, which have already been drawn up and transmitted to the Customer at that time claimable and shall automatically cancel any payment facility or cash discount for the future.
6.6. Without prejudice to the foregoing, iRepairshop reserves the right to take back goods not (fully) paid for.
6.7. Without prejudice to the foregoing provision, in case of dispute the invoice must be protested in a reasoned manner within eight (8) days of receipt by registered letter.

8. Retention of title and transfer of risk
8.1. Ownership of delivered goods is transferred to the Customer only after full payment of the price, in principal, interest and costs. Until then, the goods remain the exclusive property of iRepairshop. The Customer undertakes, if necessary, to inform third parties of iRepairshop's retention of title, e.g. to avoid any risk of seizure of goods not yet (fully) paid for.
8.2. The above provision does not affect the transfer of risk. All risks, including but not limited to loss, damage, destruction or cases of force majeure, are transferred to the Customer as of delivery to the Customer or a third party recipient designated by the Customer. Storage of the goods pending collection is at the Customer's risk. The Customer shall provide delivery facilities at the delivery address. However, the risk already passes to the Customer upon delivery to the carrier, if the carrier was instructed by the Customer to transport the goods and this choice was not imposed by iRepairshop.
8.3. The costs and risk of loss or damage related to the (return) shipment of goods to iRepairshop are entirely the responsibility of the Customer until iRepairshop has received and scanned the shipment. iRepairshop can therefore never be held responsible for any damage or loss of goods occurred during transport or delivery of (return) shipments to iRepairshop. The above provision applies to any way the Customer sends the goods to iRepairshop, such as when exercising the right of withdrawal or otherwise. The Customer is always obliged to strictly follow iRepairshop's return instructions and to properly insure, pack, address and frank the shipments.
8.4. Any visible damage and/or qualitative deficiency of a product or other shortcoming in delivery must be reported by the Customer to iRepairshop without delay.
9. Conformity and warranty
9.1. The Customer must, on pain of forfeiture, invoke the visible or non-conforming defects, damage and/or qualitative deficiency of a product or other shortcoming in the delivery without delay in writing by registered letter within five (5) days of the Customer's knowledge of the alleged defect. The liability of iRepairshop in this context is limited solely to the repair or exchange of the non-conforming goods free of charge, excluding all costs or damages. The Customer shall check each delivery of goods immediately upon receipt.
9.2. Charged services (Orders) are deemed to be definitively accepted if they are not contested within eight (8) days of the invoice date, not including the date of the invoice, by registered letter to the attention of iRepairshop, Veldeken 3, 9240 Zele, stating well-founded reasons.
9.3. After acceptance of the goods and/or services delivered, iRepairshop's liability, except in cases of intent or gross negligence, is limited to any hidden defects and the warranty for goods mentioned in article 10.
10. Warranty goods
10.1. Pursuant to the laws of September 21, 2004 and March 20, 2022 on consumer protection when selling consumer goods, consumers have legal rights. This legal warranty applies from the date of delivery to the first owner. Any commercial warranty does not affect these rights.
10.2. iRepairshop provides warranty for 12 months after purchase of the product, unless the Customer has chosen to extend the warranty to 24 months. On the Refurbished battery, iRepairshop provides a warranty for 12 months after purchase of the device, valid from a residual capacity lower than 80%.
10.3. Hidden defects can only give rise to warranty if the warranty request is submitted by motivated letter or e-mail within two (2) months after the Customer discovered or could reasonably have discovered the hidden defect. Thereafter, any right to repair, replacement or possible compensation shall expire. Any compensation shall never exceed the price of the goods.
10.4. iRepairshop is not responsible for problems resulting from wrong and/or improper use of the product, problems due to force majeure, and due to the act or intentional fault of any person, including the Customer or his appointees/employees.
10.5. The iRepairshop warranty cannot be invoked
- in case of fall damage and/or water damage;
- in case of misuse of the product;
- in case of maintenance at another company than the seller-supplier
- in case the damage is caused by force majeure
- in case additional, not adapted equipment is connected to the sold product;
- in case of intentional damage of the product by the customer or its appointees/employees;
- in case of forgetting Apple ID passwords or access codes.
10.6. The warranty of iRepairshop is limited to repair free of charge, or to the cost of parts and labour, excluding indirect damage, immaterial damage, the cost of returning the product to the iRepairshop branches and then returning it to the Customer, and without entitling the Customer to any compensation.
10.7. To invoke the warranty, the Customer must be able to provide proof of purchase and the serial number (IMEI). Customers are also advised to keep the original packaging of the goods.
10.8. For goods purchased online and delivered to the (home) address provided by the Customer, the Customer must contact iRepairshop and return the product to iRepairshop at his/her expense.
10.9. If a lack of conformity manifests itself within the warranty period, the presumption that this lack existed at the time of delivery applies as proof to the contrary, unless this presumption is incompatible with the nature of the good or with the nature of the conformity defect, by taking into account among other things whether the good is new or second hand/refurbished.
11. Right of Withdrawel
11.1. The terms of Articles 10 and 11 apply only to Customers who, in their capacity as consumers, purchase goods online on the webshop from iRepairshop or where a "distance contract" is concluded with such Customer in any other way, as defined in Article I.8.15° Economic Law Code.
11.2. Any purchase that does not involve a "distance contract," such as a purchase made at the registered office or branch office of iRepairshop, or by a Customer in a professional capacity, do not entitle the Customer to withdraw. Any possibility of exchange or refund in such case depends entirely on the goodwill of iRepairshop.
11.3. The Customer has the right to revoke the contract within a period of fourteen (14) days without any costs other than those provided for by law and without giving reasons. This implies that the Customer renounces the purchase and returns the goods himself to iRepairshop, after which iRepairshop will refund the price already paid, without prejudice to the depreciation of the goods resulting from handling the goods beyond what was necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the goods.
11.4. The withdrawal period shall expire fourteen (14) days from the day on which the Customer or a third party recipient designated by the Customer, other than the carrier, takes physical possession of the goods or, in the case of service contracts, the day of conclusion of contract.

To exercise the right of withdrawal, the Customer must inform iRepairshop, Veldeken 3, 9240 Zele, Belgium, email@example.com, by an unequivocal statement, (such as in writing by mail or e-mail) of his/her decision to withdraw from the agreement. The Customer may use the attached model withdrawal form (Annex to these Conditions) for this purpose, but is not obliged to do so.
11.6. In order to comply with the withdrawal period, the Customer must send his/her communication concerning the exercise of the right of withdrawal before the withdrawal period has expired.

The Customer is on time if he returns the goods before the period of fourteen (14) days has expired.
11.8. All direct costs of returning the goods shall be borne by the Customer. Return costs shall also be borne by the Customer if the goods, due to their nature, cannot be returned by ordinary post.
11.9. If the returned product is somehow reduced in value, iRepairshop reserves the right to hold the Customer liable and claim compensation for any reduction in value of the goods resulting from the Customer's use of the goods beyond what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the goods.
11.10. In exercising the right of withdrawal, the Customer undertakes to return the goods in their original packaging, together with all accessories, instructions for use and invoice or proof of purchase.
11.11. If the Customer has requested that the provision of services begin during the withdrawal period, the Customer shall pay an amount proportionate to what has already been delivered at the time he informs us that he is withdrawing from the contract, compared to the full performance of the contract.
11.12. If the Customer revokes the agreement, iRepairshop will refund all payments received from the Customer up to that point, including standard delivery costs, to the Customer within a maximum of fourteen (14) days after iRepairshop has been informed of the Customer's decision to revoke the agreement. For sales contracts, iRepairshop may wait to refund until it has received all the goods back, or until the Customer has demonstrated that he/she has returned the goods, whichever comes first.
11.13. If the Customer has explicitly chosen a method of delivery other than the cheapest standard delivery offered by iRepairshop, iRepairshop is not obliged to refund the costs of that delivery, which are entirely the Customer's responsibility in case of exercising the right of withdrawal.
11.14. iRepairshop will reimburse the Customer with the same means of payment as the Customer used for the original transaction, unless the Customer has expressly agreed otherwise; in any case, the Customer will not be charged for such reimbursement.
11.15. The burden of proof regarding the exercise of the right of withdrawal lies entirely with the Customer.
12. Exclusion of right of withdrawal
12.1. I If the agreement between the Customer on the one hand and iRepairshop on the other hand is a service agreement, such as repairs of goods, and the performance of the services was provided with the explicit prior consent of the Customer, the Customer acknowledges that the full performance of the services implies the loss of the right of withdrawal.
12.2. The Customer cannot exercise the right of withdrawal for:
- The delivery of goods manufactured according to the Customer's specifications, or which are clearly intended for a specific person (such as iRepairshop gift vouchers);
- The delivery of goods which after delivery are by their nature irrevocably mixed with the other products;
- Contracts where the consumer has specifically requested the company to visit him to perform urgent repairs or maintenance there; however, where, on such a visit, the company provides additional services not explicitly requested by the consumer, or provides goods other than the replacement parts necessarily used to perform the maintenance or repairs, the right of withdrawal applies to those additional services or goods.
13. Questions and complaints

16. Competent court and applicable law
16.1. If the courts of the Customer's place of residence do not have exclusive jurisdiction in his/her capacity as a consumer, any disputes shall fall within the jurisdiction of the courts of the district of Dendermonde, Belgium. If the dispute falls under the jurisdiction of the justice of the peace, only the justice of the peace of Dendermonde is competent.
16.2. Only Belgian law applies to the legal relations between iRepairshop and the Customer, whether contractual or extra-contractual, with the exception of the mandatory provisions of international private law on applicable law.
16.3. Customers are requested to first contact iRepairshop to solve any dispute. The Customer, in his/her capacity as consumer, can also turn to the online European consumer dispute resolution platform (http://ec.europa.eu/odr).
