The purpose of these general terms and conditions of sale is, on the one hand, to inform any potential consumer about the terms and conditions under which TMC carries out the sale and delivery of the ordered products, and to define the rights and obligations of the parties in connection with the sale of products by TMC to the consumer.
These General Terms and Conditions of Sale apply, without restriction or reservations, to all sales, by TMC, of products offered on its website «TMC-COUTEAUX.FR».
If a condition was to fail, it would be considered to be governed by the practices in force in the Mail-Order sector. All other conditions bind the seller only after confirmation of the seller’s written order.
If one or more stipulations of these general conditions of sale are held invalid or declared as such under a law, regulation or following a final decision of a competent court, the other stipulations will retain their full scope and strength.
Consequently, the fact for any person to order a product offered for sale on the TMC website implies full acceptance of these general terms and conditions of sale which the Customer acknowledges having read before his order.
The products are offered for sale in the global geographical territory.
Prior to ordering, the Customer declares that:
• he purchase of products is not directly related to his professional activity and is limited to strictly personal use,
• have full legal capacity, enabling it to commit to these general terms and conditions of sale.
TMC reserves the right to modify these general terms and conditions of sale at any time and without prior notice. These changes are then applicable to all subsequent orders.
The Customer is personally responsible for setting up the IT and telecommunications facilities that allow access to the TMC site. The Customer shall bear the costs of telecommunications when accessing the Internet and when using the Website.
The fact that a user completes the ‘Purchase Order’ appearing on the site and confirms this order constitutes full acceptance of these General Conditions, only applicable.
The TMC website contains at all times a commercial offer for the sale of products, which is not legally considered a permanent offer. Thus, as will be explained below, the conclusion of a contract will only take place in the event of an order confirmation by TMC.
After validation of the payment (i.e. on the date of receipt of the payment for cheques, bank transfers and postal orders, and from the date of debit of the Customer’s account for bank cards), the order is deemed accepted by TMC.
TMC will then confirm the acceptance of the order to the user, at his choice by one of the following means: e-mail, telephone or postal mail. This confirmation, or if applicable, the refusal of acceptance of an order will be confirmed to the user no later than 24 working hours after receipt of an order.
In accordance with Article L121-16 of the French Consumer Code, the Customer has a withdrawal period of 7 clear days from the delivery of his order which will be refunded against return of the products delivered in their original packaging and in their original state.
Before any return, it is necessary to ask us for a return number by email otherwise TMC may refuse the customer’s package.
The exercise of the right of withdrawal will give rise to the choice of the Customer:
– either to a refund by cheque
– or the awarding of a purchase order under the conditions set out below.
Products damaged, incomplete, damaged or soiled by the Customer are not taken back.
In addition, TMC reserves the right to refuse a subsequent order from the Customer.
The return of the products is carried out at the Customer’s expense, risk and peril. Returns “postage paid by the consignee” are refused. We advise you to send the product by registered mail to the address given in the first paragraph of the General Conditions of Sale.
Beyond the legal deadline, the Customer cannot cancel his order unless the amount indicated in the order confirmation by TMC exceeds by more than 5% the price indicated on the site for products, transport and delivery. In this case, the cancellation of the order must take place by e-mail addressed to TMC no later than the day following the receipt by the customer of the order confirmation.
No unilateral order cancellation will be accepted without the agreement of TMC.
Subject to the provisions of § 3.2 above, any refund at the expense of TMC will be made in the form of a voucher to be used on our site.
In all cases, TMC will communicate when awarding this purchase order by e-mail:
– its period of validity
– its amount
Unless otherwise stated, during its period of validity, the Customer may request by email or mail to transform this voucher into a refund.
This refund will be made first by cheque. For any other means expressly accepted by TMC, the inherent costs will be the exclusive responsibility of the Customer.
In case of partial use of the purchase order, the remainder will remain available to the Customer under the same conditions as the original credit. A purchase order will be considered to be used in the event of even partial use or a refund request.
By the very fact of using this purchase order, the Customer undertakes on honour not to lodge a dispute or opposition with his bank or other, to the transaction concerned by the refund, and agrees not to do so within one year of the use of the purchase order.
The Client acknowledges that it is aware that any breach of this obligation would expose it to retrocession of the amount unduly collected, without prejudice to any damages that may be claimed by TMC.
Any changes to the orders and any ancillary or derogatory conditions as regards the object and the terms of the sale are valid only to the extent that they appear in the offer of the site or the confirmation made by TMC.
Any clause from the Customer, not accepted in writing by TMC and which would be in opposition to the present general conditions or particularities defined in the price offer will be considered null..
The price list on the TMC website doesn’t constitute a sale. At any time, it may be changed unilaterally without prior notice.
The products are invoiced at the price agreed by the order confirmation within the limits of the general economic conditions (value added taxes, etc.) and available stocks and subject to any error.
All prices are net, in Euros, ex works. The costs of packing, transport and insurance are the responsibility of the Customer.
The Customer may, at his express request, obtain the sending of the invoice to the billing address and not to the delivery address by validating the option provided for this purpose on the order form.
