General Conditions of Sale

Article 1. -- Application and opposability of the general conditions of sale

The present general conditions of sale (GCS) are systematically addressed or given to each purchaser to enable him to place an sorder.

Consequently, the fact of placing order implies whole adhesion and without restriction of the purchaser with these GCS, excluding all documents such as leaflets, catalogues emitted by the seller and which have only information value.

No particular condition can, except with formal and written acceptance of the seller, prevail against the GCS. Any contrary condition opposed by the purchaser will therefore be, except express acceptance, not opposable to the seller, whatever the moment it could have been brought to his attention.

The fact that the seller does not at one point take advantage of any of these GCS does not mean that he waives the right to use later on any of the aforesaid conditions.

Article 2. -- Modification of the general conditions of sale

The orders are final only when they were confirmed in writing or by e-mail.
