6. Retention of title, risk and damage

The delivered products remain the exclusive property of Xandres until full payment has been made. The risk of damage to or loss of the goods passes to you upon delivery to you, which happens at the moment that you or a third party designated by you who is not the carrier, takes physically possession of the goods.

You must immediately report any visible damage to the products that you notice upon receipt of the product (s) to Xandres via customercare@xandres.com.

7. Liability

Legal guarantee

You can invoke the legal warranty if the delivered product (s) is/are not in conformity with the purchased product(s) and if the non-conformity is established within two years from delivery. You must inform Xandres of this non-conformity within a period of two months from the day on which you discovered the defect. If the product(s) show(s) defects and/or damage(s) within the first six months after delivery, it is assumed that the defect has existed since delivery. Xandres will have to prove the contrary if it does not agree with this. If defects and/or damage to the product(s) are found more than six months after delivery, you must prove that the product(s) are non-compliant upon delivery. You cannot invoke the legal guarantee for changes in delivery times or for defects of which you were aware at the time of the order.

In case of complaints about the non-conformity of the product(s), you can contact Xandres via the email address customercare@xandres.com.

Exclusions

The legal warranty lapses if the defect has arisen as a result of deterioration of the condition due to negligence, accidents, disasters, falls, or even, non-compliance with the user-maintenance instructions, poor maintenance, abnormal, commercial, inappropriate or incorrect use. The warranty will in any case be void if a third party has modified, treated and/or processed the product(s).

Use of the products

Xandres cannot be responsible for theft of the product(s) (unless during transport arranged by Xandres for delivery), loss or material or other damage of any kind that you or a third party would suffer during use of the products.

Return conditions

Xandres will gladly accept your return, provided you respect the following points:

  • The return has been initiated and the package has been delivered to a post office or Xandres/Xandres Gold store within 14 days of receipt of your order.
  • Each item is strictly unused and in completely undamaged condition.
  • The original labels and tags are attached to the items and in perfect condition.
  • The original packaging is included and is undamaged.
  • If the initial online order was paid with an online gift voucher, a new gift voucher will be issued after return.
  • Refunds take place within a period of 14 days after receipt of your returned products and verification by Xandres that they meet the aforementioned return conditions.
  • Shipping costs will only be refunded if you received a product that was not the one you ordered or if the product was damaged when you received it. A full return, in other words of all purchased products, will be fully refunded, including shipping costs. In case of a partial return, in other words when not all ordered and delivered products are returned, no shipping costs will be refunded, only the returned products.

Xandres requests that you comply with the aforementioned points. Returned packages and/or products are thoroughly examined. Xandres reserves the right to hold you liable for any loss in value resulting from use after delivery that goes beyond what is strictly necessary to determine the nature and essential characteristics of the goods. Note: If Xandres is unable to process your refund because the above conditions have not been met, you will be notified by the Xandres customer service team.

In the exceptional case that your package is lost during shipment or return due to circumstances that are not attributable to you, you will always be reimbursed via an online voucher from your purchase value unless you inform Xandres by mail at the address customercare@xandres.com within 3 calendar days of receipt of the notification of loss of the package, that you want the purchase price to be refunded.

Important remarks:

Provided the above return conditions are met, Xandres will pay you back with the same payment method as you used for the original transaction, unless you have explicitly agreed otherwise. Potential losses due to currency fluctuations are not reimbursed. Additional costs as a result of the fact that you have explicitly opted for a different method of delivery than the cheapest standard delivery offered by Xandres will not be refunded.

You can find even more helpful information about returning products in the returns section of the customer service pages (FAQ). If you do not find the information you need, please contact Xandres customer service (+32 (0)9 218 18 18 or by mail customercare@xandres.com).

This return procedure in no way limits the warranty you have under Belgian law, should a product be defective or non-compliant. Xandres does ask you to inform Xandres within 2 months of the fact that the product is defective or not conforming (see article 7 of these conditions). After this period, complaints will no longer be accepted.

Each party has the right to cancel a purchase in the event of a material breach by the other party of these terms. This means, for example, that Xandres can cancel a purchase if you are not a consumer or if your payment is, or appears to be, illegal.
