General Condition Of Sale

Our sales are subject to these general terms, which apply to all sales unless otherwise expressly and formally exempted by us.

DELIVERY – TRANSPORT

Whether our goods are sold ex-factory or carriage paid, even packaged by us, they are sent at the recipients’ own risk, whom in case of damage, delay or missing item must proceed with their own claims against the carrier.

Upon delivery, the buyer must assess any damage or missing item in detail and record reservations in detail on the goods delivery document, which must be countersigned by the carrier or given driver. The latter must then, within two working days after reception of the goods, inform us of his/her motivated protest by fax or e-mail and the carrier by registered letter with an acknowledgement of receipt or extrajudicial document.

The day of shipment or collection from our warehouses triggers invoicing.


PRICE

Our prices are expressed in euros, excluding tax and including charges for standard packaging.

The company reserves the right to modify these prices within legal limits if cost requirements make it necessary. Only the acknowledgement of receipt marks its commitment to retain a given price.


DELIVERY TIME/DEADLINE

Our delivery times/deadlines are indicative. We cannot guarantee firm deadlines. Delays in delivery shall not under any circumstances give rise to damages or the cancellation of an order.


RETURN – CLAIM

Claims are only taken into account if they are expressed (via fax or e-mail) within eight days of receipt of the goods.
Any exceptional return of goods shall be subject to prior agreement by our company.

If our company accepts returned goods, the latter must be returned in perfect condition and in their original packaging.
In any case, the shipping costs to and from us will be borne by the customer.

Our company will not be held liable for any damaged goods or their packaging other than what was observed upon delivery.


CATALOGUE – PACKING – SAMPLES

The catalogue is non-contractual. Colours are matching and changeable. The sale takes place upon packing and samples will be charged.


PAYMENT TERMS – PENALTIES

Unless stated otherwise, our goods will be sold in compliance with the following payment terms:

  • Net price, ex-works, excluding VAT.
  • By accepted draft within 60 days net or 45 days end of the month (French Law No. 2008-776 of 4 August 2008 on the Modernisation of the Economy).
  • By bank transfer with due date.
  • Cash payment, without discount, within 8 days from date of invoice.

Failure to pay by the due date will entail:

  • The immediate collectability of all outstanding sums, regardless of the mode of payment.
  • The acceleration of payment of outstanding amounts.

Moreover, the buyer will be legally subject to a late payment penalty in accordance with French Law no. 92-1442 dated 31st December 1992, which shall be calculated by applying an interest rate of 1.5 times the legal interest rate to the total of the outstanding sums plus a fixed allowance of collection costs of € 40. These penalties will be directly deductible from the sums that may be owed to the buyer by our company.


WARRANTY

Our company’s liability is limited to the amount of the invoice. Any non-compliance or hidden defects duly identified by us may only force us to replace the given products, without compensation of any sort. The return of goods is subject to the prior agreement of our sales department.
Moreover, our company may not be held liable for damaged caused by the misuse, carelessness or heavy wear of our brushware products to goods or persons.


RETENTION OF TITLE

The sold goods shall remain the property of our company until their full payment in principal and additional charges. Failure to pay any of the instalments on any due date may lead to the goods being reclaimed. These provisions do not prevent the transfer to the customer, from the delivery, of the risks of loss and impairment of the sold goods as well as damage which the latter could cause (French Law n°80-335 of 12 May 1980).


ACT OF GOD

Fulfilment of orders shall be legally suspended in the event of an act of god. The following are notably deemed to be acts of god: fire, natural disasters, military mobilisation, war, total or partial strike, riot, traffic disruption, inadequate equipment supply or transport or all causes beyond the will of RLS DOMERGUE reducing a given delivery or making the latter too expensive.


ADDRESS FOR SERVICE

Any dispute shall be submitted to the exclusive competence of the courts of our head office, regardless of the accepted modes of payment, even in the case of appeal in warranty or of plurality of defendants, and notwithstanding any provisions to the contrary which may be stated in the purchasing terms of our buyers.
