These GTC define the rights and obligations of the Parties in the case of an online sale by SPRL TECHNOLEASE to the Buyer of goods that are for sale on the website of SPRL TECHNOLEASE.
They determine the general conditions related to the execution of the different steps of the sale, from placing the order to delivering the products and they ensure the follow up of the order between the two Parties.
They define the contractual relationship between the Parties and their obligations, to the exclusion of any other terms and conditions. In this sense, it is understood that the Buyer accepts them without any reserve. These conditions apply to all purchases made by a person located in or outside of Belgium as well as for deliveries made in or outside of Belgium.
However, for deliveries outside of Belgium, it is also required to send an email to SPRL TECHNOLEASE (email@example.com) prior to placing the order, in order to determine the specific delivery costs and lead times according to the weight and dimensions of the package, so that the Buyer can be informed of these. If no email is being sent prior to placing the order, it will be understood that the Buyer irrefutably accepts the extra cost or delivery time due to shipment outside of Belgium.
The Buyer can place an online order, from the online catalogue with the appropriate form.
For all placed orders, the Buyer must provide the following information:
- its full contact data : name, last name, address, phone and email address
- the precise description of the ordered product(s)
- the quantity of each ordered product
- the delivery address in case it is different than the billing address
- the preferred mode of payment (check or credit card)
The order can only be validated after acceptation by the Buyer of the GTC by checking the box “I have read and accepted the General Terms and Conditions”.
The GTC can be found at the bottom of the page of the SPRL TECHNOLEASE website.
By ordering an item from the list of available products, the Buyer accepts its price (and possible delivery surcharge) and description. Any claim regarding this point could possibly be reached through an exchange or as per the below guarantees.
Any placed order constitutes an irrevocable commitment by the Buyer, without prejudice to the right of withdrawal as regards an online sale (see paragraph 12).
In case a product is not available at the time of order, the Buyer will be informed by email in the shortest possible time.
The order of the unavailable product will then be cancelled and possibly refunded, whereas the rest of the order remains firm and definitive.
The online confirmation of the Buyer’s credit card number and the final acceptance of the order will constitute proof of the agreement by the Buyer and will prevail for:
- The payability of all due sums as indicated on the purchase order ;
- The signature and explicit acceptance of the performed operations.
An order confirmation will be sent to the Buyer by email and will constitute the express commitment of the Parties.
All aspects of the presentation of the products on the website contribute to a high quality of presentation, namely the quality of the displayed pictures; however, these pictures are not contractual.
Each product or item has the best possible description, namely thanks to description sheets that the Buyer commits to read before any purchase.
Nevertheless, should there be an inadvertent mistake or omission in the product presentation or on the technical data sheets, SPRL TECHNOLEASE will not be rendered liable.
SPRL TECHNOLEASE reserves the right to modify its prices at any time but commits to apply the current prices at the time of order, subject to availability of the product(s) at the time of order.
The prices indicated on SPRL TECHNOLEASE website are inclusive of taxes (including VAT) and in EUROS, exclusive of shipping costs.
In the event of a change of the VAT tax rate, the applicable VAT will be the one of the date of order.
The payment of the total price is due at the time of order. Under no circumstances can it be considered as a deposit or advance payment.
If one or several taxes or contributions, namely environmental tax, happen to be created or modified, for higher or lower rates, this modification could possibly be reflected on the sales prices of the products.
The Buyer can pay for the ordered product(s) through the payment method of its choice among those offered by SPRL TECHNOLEASE as listed on their website.
The Buyer warrants to SPRL TECHNOLEASE that it has the required authorisations, if any, to use the payment method that it chose after validating the purchase order.
The online payment will be made through the secure online payment system known as "e-transaction" by Verviers BNP Parisbas Fortis Bank.
SPRL TECHNOLEASE reserves the right to interrupt any order processing or any delivery in case the related credit card payment fails to be authorised or in case of default of payment.
SPRL TECHNOLEASE also reserves the right to withhold a delivery or an order preparation if the Buyer has totally or partially unpaid previous order or if a payment litigation exists with this Buyer.
It can be requested at any time that the Buyer provides a proof of its identity to SPRL TECHNOLEASE by means of a copy of its identity document as well as a proof of legal address. In this case, the order will only be confirmed after receipt and verification of the sent documents.
The Buyer will be the owner of the ordered items or products after total payment of the order.
The shipping costs range from 2,- to 10,- EUROS including taxes. They are calculated based on the weight and volume of the package for any order under 100,- euros incl. taxes. Any order above or equal to 100,- euros will be free of charge for delivery in Belgium. For all orders placed outside of Belgium, extra charges will be calculated and added to the total cost before shipment according to the weight and dimensions of the package.
Cancellation & Reimbursement
The standard delivery time for deliveries in Belgium is 5 working days, subject to the availability in stock. However, this delivery time can be subject to change or increase in case of force majeure or during the online sale closing period, which will be clearly announced on the website main page.

The delivery time starts from the complete receipt of payment for the corresponding order.
It is the Buyer’s responsibility to clearly indicate a complete delivery address for the ordered products, as well as a telephone number on which it can be reached at any time in order to ensure a correct delivery.
In case the contractual delivery terms are not respected by the Seller, the Buyer has a right to rescind the contract by registered letter with an acknowledgement of receipt, only after requesting SPRL TECHNOLEASE to perform the delivery within a reasonable additional delivery time of minimum 8 days.
However, if the Buyer wishes to include a provision for the delivery dates or terms to be part of the contract and to be a cause for cancellation of contract in case of failure to respect these delivery terms, it has to specifically request this condition to SPRL TECHNOLEASE prior to the order and this condition shall be subject to acceptation by SPRL TECHNOLEASE.

The shipment of the goods, even if prepaid, are at the recipient’s own risks and exclusively under its responsibility, it has the responsibility to check the quantity and quality of the products and to take action against the transporter if the goods are damaged or missing.

The return costs are to SPRL TECHNOLEASE’s charge.
All our goods are sold with a 12-month warranty period that guarantees conformity or covers any possible reimbursement of the purchase price, replacement or repair of products.

The return costs are exclusively to the Buyer’s charge.
All external circumstances to the Parties’ wills that prevent the execution of their obligations in normal conditions are considered to be grounds for exoneration from their obligations and result in the suspension of those obligations for as long as these circumstances apply and not any longer.
