General Conditions of Sale
All our sales are considered to be made in Villefranche - Gleizé (69).
Delivery times are given as an indication. In the event of a delay in delivery, the buyer may not refuse to take delivery, nor claim penalties or damages.
The goods always travel at the risk of the buyer, who must, in the event of damage or shortage, make all the necessary observations on the discharge document and confirm his reservations by registered letter to the carrier within THREE DAYS of receipt (Article 105 of the Commercial Code). Failure to comply with the above rules shall prevent any action against the carrier. ATTENTION: oral reservations or by ordinary letter, the mention "Subject to control" affixed on the discharge document, have no legal value.
Complaints concerning the quality of the goods, excluding any transport dispute, must be made by registered letter from the date of delivery, within 8 days in the case of an apparent defect and within one month in the case of a defect that is not apparent at first sight. In no case may such a complaint justify non-payment by the buyer. In all cases, the seller must be given the opportunity to inspect the condition of the goods himself without delay.
The products are supplied at the price in force at the time the order is placed. All orders are considered firm and final and cannot be cancelled by the buyer.
The products on the website www.beeper.fr or on any document created and printed by IXIT BEEPER may be subject to non-contractual photos.
In metropolitan France only, for any shipment with a value of less than 500 Euros excluding tax (five hundred) and for a total weight of less than 30 kilograms, a flat rate for postage and packing of 15 Euros excluding tax (fifteen euros) will be charged to the buyer. Above 500 Euros (five hundred) excluding VAT and for a total weight of less than 30 kilograms, free shipping will be applied (shipping costs offered to the customer). For islands, DOM TOM, any foreign country, and for any shipment exceeding 30 kilos in metropolitan France, the shipping costs will be exclusively charged to the buyer.
During the course of a contract, we may require any guarantee of payment deemed necessary. Any amount paid by way of guarantee shall be considered as a deposit.
Our invoices are payable to VILLEFRANCHE GLEIZÉ. The terms of payment for metropolitan France only are as follows : - First order (or any order outside mainland France): Payment before departure of the goods (credit card, bank transfer) or by magnetic draft (LCR) at sight. - Subsequent orders (France): After acceptance of account opening by the financial department, payment by magnetic draft (LCR) within 10 days if the order is less than 3 pieces or within 30 days if the order is more than 3 pieces. /! Payment by cheque is not accepted. For islands, DOM TOM or any country outside metropolitan France, the conditions of payment are exclusively before departure of the goods by transfer. Payment by credit card is only authorised by an account established in metropolitan France. No discount is granted for early payment. In the event of late payment, and taking into account the obligations set out in the law of 4 August 2008 n°2008-776, the buyer will be liable to pay a penalty calculated by applying 3 times the legal interest rate to the sums due. In the event of non-payment on the due date, IXIT reserves the right to pay the sums due without delay by credit card.
An unpaid LCR generating bank service charges will be immediately re-invoiced to the debtor for a fixed value of 35 Euros (thirty five) excluding VAT as Bank service charges on unpaid debts. In the event of collection through a debt collection agency or by legal action, the total amount of the unpaid debt shall be increased by 20% (twenty percent) for legal costs.
The products are guaranteed against any material or manufacturing defect for a period of 24 to 36 months, depending on the product range, from the date of delivery. Under this warranty, the only obligation incumbent on the seller shall be the free replacement or repair of the product or the element recognised as defective by its services. Any product that is to benefit from the guarantee must first be submitted to the seller's after-sales service, whose agreement is essential for any replacement. The warranty is only applicable in accordance with our general conditions of after-sales service, which can be downloaded from the website of our respective brands. Any shipping costs are to be borne by the buyer. An extension of the warranty and services is available under the commercial name G2+ to be discovered on our website.
Goods sold will not be taken back under any circumstances without the agreement of IXIT in the form of a return voucher validated by IXIT's technical department within a maximum period of 15 days from the date of sale. All second-hand products are not subject to return or refund. Any return accepted by the seller will result in the creation of a credit note for the benefit of the buyer, after qualitative and quantitative verification of the returned products. This credit note must be offset against future invoices and may not be reimbursed directly. A fixed and non-negotiable deduction of 35% (thirty-five percent) will be subtracted from the amount of the return to cover the costs of postage, processing and repair of the product. If the product has been installed or is used or if the sale has been concluded for more than 30 days, there will be no return.
In the event of a dispute of any nature or of a dispute relating to the formation or execution of the order, the Commercial Court of Villefranche sur Saône shall have sole jurisdiction.
The goods remain the property of IXIT until full payment of their value, in accordance with law n°80.335 of 12 May 1980. However, the responsibility for the goods is transferred to the buyer as soon as they are delivered. In the event that payment is not made within the period agreed between the parties, the seller reserves the right to take back the goods delivered. The advance payments received shall be retained by the seller as compensation for the buyer's faulty non-performance of the agreement. If the goods taken back have been used, the Buyer shall remain liable for the full amount of the claim and interest on arrears, and the Seller shall reimburse the Buyer for the amount at which he was able to sell the goods taken back. FEE FOR RECOVERY = 40 euros excluding VAT (Article D441-5 of the Commercial Code). RATE OF LATE PENALTY = 15% of the value including VAT (article L 441-3 of the Commercial Code)
If the account has been opened under a method of payment by non-accepted LCR, the buyer certifies, by signing the account opening document, that he will honour on their due date, unless he expressly advises otherwise, the drafts exempted from his acceptance, drawn by IXIT, by debiting his referenced account.
