2.1 These terms and conditions are applicable to every offer, sale, rental and lease of goods (both material and non-material in nature), services and supplies, as well as those purchases of goods made by to third parties, and to all work undertaken on behalf of the Customer, as well as to all agreements in the broadest sense of the word entered into with third parties by Flex IT Rent, with explicit exclusion of any general terms and conditions of the Customer.
2.2 These terms and conditions apply within and outside of the Netherlands, irrespective of the residence or domicile of the parties to any agreement and irrespective of the place where the agreement is formed, carried out or should be enforced.
2.3 These terms and conditions may be invoked also by Flex IT Rent’s directors, employees, agents and subcontractors. These terms and conditions apply also to non-contractual claims.
2.4 If any provision of these terms and conditions is invalid or is declared invalid, the other provisions of these terms and conditions will remain in force unchanged. Flex IT Rent and the Customer shall then mutually agree on new provisions to replace the void or annulled provision. In doing so, the purpose and meaning of the void or annulled provision must be taken into account as much as possible.
3.1 Flex IT Rent shall provide all offers, quotations, cost and delivery time estimates with due care and to the best of its knowledge. However, any errors and/or omissions cannot
always be excluded and shall not be binding for Flex IT Rent nor can Flex IT Rent be held liable for such. Upon discovery of any errors and/or omissions by Flex IT Rent, the Customer shall inform Flex IT Rent about this as soon as practically possible. Unless communicated otherwise, the offers from Flex IT Rent shall remain valid for a maximum period of four (4) weeks. 3.2 The rental and lease agreements for the products are concluded for a period as stated in the order. Before the end of the rental period, the Customer must inform Flex IT Rent whether it wishes to return / request a pick-up for the products. If the Customer fails to do so, the rental term shall be automatically extended for the same period and under the same conditions.
3.3 The legal and economic title to the goods shall at all times remain with Flex IT Rent.
3.4 The applicable VAT, the means of transport and freight costs will be confirmed per order prior to shipping.

If the invoices remain unpaid, Flex IT Rent reserves the right to claim reasonable extrajudicial costs and damages as from the moment that the Customer is in breach, to be calculated according to the Dutch scheme of extrajudicial debt collection costs (Staffel Buitengerechtelijke Incassokosten), pursuant to the Dutch debt collection compensation regulation (Besluit vergoeding voor buitengerechtelijke incassokosten), in force as per 1 July 2012.
4.4 As long as the Customer is in default regarding its payment obligations or any other obligations as set out in these general terms and conditions and/or any other agreement between the parties, Flex IT Rent shall be entitled to suspend any of its delivery and/or transport obligations until the obligations of the Customer have been fully met. Flex IT Rent shall also be entitled to collect any of its rental equipment, whether or not related to the default matter, at the premises of the Customer without this resulting in any liability and/or compensation obligation from the side of Flex IT Rent. The costs of equipment collection shall be borne by the Customer. The foregoing does not affect Flex IT Rent’s right to invoice the Customer for the respective rental period in full, irrespective the date of collection of the equipment. If the rental equipment has not been made available for collection in accordance with the instructions, Flex IT Rent has the right invoice the replacement value of the rental equipment to the Customer.

After expiry on this period, Flex IT Rent shall no longer accept the invoice and the Customer’s right to payment shall elapse.
5.1 Unless explicitly agreed otherwise, Flex IT Rent shall determine the means of transport and packaging.
5.2 Flex IT Rent strives to have the goods delivered at the agreed place one working day before the rental commencement date. However, the delivery time estimates provided by Flex IT Rent are indicative and the Customer cannot derive any rights from it. Flex IT Rent will inform the Customer as soon as practically possible in case of any (expected) delays. It remains the responsibility of the Customer to place the order with reasonable advance considering the requested delivery place. In no event shall Flex IT Rent be liable towards the Customer or any third party for losses of any kind due to delayed deliveries.

5.6 The Customer shall ensure to treat the rental equipment with due care and to look after it properly. This includes that the Customer shall take out a proper liability insurance to cover the usual risks, such as but not limited to risk of loss, fire, damage and theft.

replacement value, unless the equipment can be repaired by Flex IT Rent in which case only the reparation costs will be due.

The Customer is not allowed to have the equipment repaired by any other party than Flex IT Rent. 5.7 Before returning of the rental equipment, the Customer shall ensure that the goods are properly packed. This means that the equipment must be carefully packed in the original packaging, and put and locked in the provided crates. If after return any of the provided crates and/or locks are missing Flex IT Rent shall be entitled to invoice the replacement value thereof to the Customer.
5.8 The Customer shall also ensure that any and all passwords and log-in details (such as iCloud) are removed from the devices.

5.9 If the goods are not available for pick-up at the agreed time and place, Flex IT Rent shall – at its sole discretion – have the right to deem the rental term prolonged and charge the additional transport costs to the Customer or to invoice the replacement value of the equipment to the Customer.
5.10 Upon return of the goods, the risk to the goods shall pass back to Flex IT Rent at the moment of transmission of the equipment to Flex IT Rent, by handing it over to the Flex IT Rent driver (external transport companies excluded) or at the moment of delivery in the warehouse. Flex IT Rent shall inspect the goods after they have arrived in the warehouse. In case any items turn out to be damages and/or not working properly anymore, Flex IT Rent shall inform the Customer about this at a later moment, but as soon as practically possible.
6.1 At the end of the rental period, the Customer is obliged to return the rented equipment, software or other materials, during office hours, in its original and cleaned condition.
