Light and Shade?
Lightandshade is a webshop specialised in high-quality design lighting and furniture. We, the brain behind the website, are always searching for products innovative in design as well as in quality, finishing and originality.
Our webshop www.lightandshade.be enables online buyers to run their purchases in a pleasant, transparent and secure way. Moreover, the buyer can track his/her purchases throughout the delivery process since all our packages are sent through a track and trace system.
As soon as Lightandshade receives the confirmation of an order on its website, there is a valid agreement between the buyer and Lightandshade. In the event of large orders, orders by minors, incomplete order procedures or previous order problems, Lightandshade reserves the right to refuse the order or to subject the order to additional conditions.
Invoices and payments
Orders are always paid in advance. With exception, orders may be paid after delivery. The payment period for orders paid after delivery is equal to 10 working days. The payment period starts on the next working day after receipt of the order. The signature on delivery by the courier service counts as receipt and approval of the order.
If items were inadvertently delivered to the recipient, the recipient has 10 business days to notify Lightandshade. If the items are not refused upon delivery, or are not disputed, the receipt of the items by the recipient is approved and consequently the order.
In the event of irresponsible non-payment due to unwillingness and/or negligence, damages of 10%, with a minimum of 50€, will be charged by law and without formal notice. And a maximum of €2500 per invoice.
The recipient has 10 working days to dispute the received invoice. If the invoice or delivered goods are not disputed within this period, the order (and thereby delivered items) will automatically be confirmed as correctly and properly received.
An order is only considered a final order once payment has been made by the customer. In the case of a bank transfer, an order is considered an order once payment has been made to account number IBAN BE23 0018 3430 8291, in the name of Lightandshade (N-VORM BV).
Transport loss or damage
In accordance with the law on commercial practices, loss and/or damage to an ordered product during transportation is to be borne by the seller. Therefore the buyer needs to inform Lightandshade via e-mail or fax within a period of 24hours after delivery. Lightandshade reserves the right to refuse the application if this term has not been respected.
Right of withdrawal within 14 days
The Belgian law on commercial practices and the information and the protection of the consumer of April the 6th 2010, allows the buyer to inform the seller (Info@lightandshade.be) that he/she renounces the sale, this within 14 days, starting the day of delivery of the product.
The goods shall be returned in the original packaging within 5 working days after notification of withdrawal. Products that have been used, connected, manipulated or modified by the buyer cannot be returned.
The product box may not be used as a shipping box. The product box must always be packed extra in order to avoid damage to the product box.
The buyer shall add a copy of the invoice and a cover letter into the box. The invoiced amount will be paid back upon receipt of the returned goods. The refund shall be made to the card/account number or payment method on which the purchaser placed the order. The buyer settles for all return costs.
Lightandshade only settles for return costs when the wrong goods have been delivered. Lightandshade reserves the right to refuse returned goods and the refund of returned goods when the packaging has been opened, when the goods have been damaged by the buyer or if the buyer does not return the items within 14 days of receiving the return form.
Any replacement or refund will only be carried out once the items have been returned and have arrived at the return address.
