The Products always have to be returned in the condition in which these were at the time of receipt. Defects that are caused during the letting period are recovered from the renter except for manufacturing errors. Products intended for letting are picked up at CIS Solutions’ address, stated at the bottom, and need to be returned to that location at the agreed end date before 19.00 CET. If this is not the case, CIS Solutions is entitled to charging one additional day of rent at a time. Possible shipping costs, lamps and batteries are payable by the renter.

Furthermore, the law stipulates that arrear interest is owed that is equal to the legal interest rate in accordance with the law of 2 August 2002 to combat the payment arrears regarding commercial transactions with respect to the merchant (i.e. 8% for 2013), and equal to the general legal interest rate with respect to the consumer (i.e. 2,75% for 2013), without requiring prior proof of default for this purpose. Every month that has started is hereby considered as a complete month. Partial payments will first be used to cover the expenses, interest and compensations to be deducted from the main balances afterwards.

  7. In case of non-fulfillment of the agreed payment conditions, all outstanding invoices and/or debts become due immediately and CIS Solutions has the right, without any proof of default or judicial intervention, to suspend the further deliveries and/or services or to consider the agreement dissolved without prejudice to its claim to damages.

  8. The payment implies that the merchant considers the delivery to be in conformity.

  9. In the event of a dispute, the merchant needs to contest the invoices by means of a registered letter within 8 calendar days upon receipt thereof on penalty of dissolution.

  10. A possible complaint from a merchant shall not be able to result in any postponement of payment; immediate payment can be demanded of what is owed in due course.

9. Reservation of Title

All items delivered by CIS Solutions remain its property until such items have been paid in full and all claims resulting from the transaction have been met. This shall also apply to conditional claims. Until then, the customer is not entitled to alienate, pledge and make the Products immovable or use these as collateral in the broadest sense of the word.
On the contrary, the risk with regard to the Products is transferred at the time of the sale.

If the customer is a business or merchant, the following provisions shall apply: seizures by third parties of items owned or co-owned by CIS Solutions must be notified by the customer immediately. Any costs arising in relation to judicial proceedings or settlement out of court which CIS Solutions undertakes to secure its rights shall be borne by the customer. The customer shall assign as a security all claims (including all claims for balances under the current account) which arise in connection with the items being sold on or on any other legal grounds to CIS Solutions. The customer is hereby irrevocably entitled to collect on its behalf and for its account all claims assigned to CIS Solutions. This direct debit authorisation may be revoked if the customer does not meet its payment obligations in an orderly manner.
