Customers recognize they are fully aware of the terms of sale set out herein when placing their order and accept them without reservation.
These terms and conditions of sale are contractually binding between company Delos France and its customers, and both parties accept them unreservedly. These terms take precedence over any other terms printed elsewhere, barring prior and express agreement in writing.
The photographic illustrations of the products are not contractually binding. Delos France shall on no account be held liable for any errors they may contain. Most of the products offered by Delos France are available at our warehouse.
The automatic order-taking system is deemed to constitute valid proof of the type, content and date of orders. Delos France confirms acceptance of an order by sending the customer an e-mail at the address supplied by the latter. Delos France reserves the right to cancel any orders from customers for whom there are unresolved payment disputes concerning previous orders. The details specified by buyers placing orders are their responsibility: the vendor shall not be liable for any mistakes in the recipient's address details preventing the former from shipping the product.
After confirming the order, Delos France undertakes to deliver all the items ordered to its transport company within no more than 3 to 9 working days. The transport company for its part is contractually bound to ship the order to the buyer's address as specified by Delos France.
Furthermore, for deliveries outside metropolitan France, the customer undertakes to settle any import tax, customs duties, value-added tax and any other taxies levied on the products under the law of the country of destination. All orders placed with Delos France are for the personal use of customers; customers and recipients shall refrain from re-selling any such products. Delos France hereby disclaims any liability whatsoever for failure on the part of the customer to pay any taxes.
Products will be shipped to customers in metropolitan France by La Poste (the French Post Office), by Colissimo Suivi - Packstream Track & Trace (excluding oversize parcels) according to the postage they specify. Products are delivered in the timeframe specified by the customer, and are handed over to the latter or any other person duly authorized to take delivery thereof. The buyer may not claim damages for any delay in delivery.

For technical products, the customer should read the instructions provided and make sure that the product works properly.
Products showing visible defects may be returned under the terms set out herein.
The vendor is discharged from his obligation to deliver in the following cases of force majeure: war, riots, fire, strikes, accidents and the impossibility of receiving his supplies. Goods are shipped at the recipient's own risk. Be sure to check your parcel on delivery. You have 48 hours in which to notify the transport company of any missing or damaged items.
Orders may be shipped in several parts according to availability. The customer settles each consignment as it arrives; if he wants 2 separate places of delivery he should place 2 orders and bear the related shipping costs.

This contract is governed by French law. Delos France cannot be held liable for any damage or injury whatsoever resulting from the improper use or operation of its products. The same goes for any alterations made by manufacturers. In any event, Delos France's liability is limited to the amount of the order and cannot be invoked further to any errors or omissions remaining despite all the precautions taken in presenting the products. Should the buyer have any problem in connection with this contract, and prior to taking legal action, he may seek to settle out of court with the aid of a professional association in his industry, a consumer organization or any other organization of his choice. You are hereby reminded that seeking an out-of-court settlement in no way alters the minimum or contractual warranty period, and that as a general rule and subject to the opinion of the Courts, the vendor honours his warranty obligations as set out herein subject to the buyer honouring his payments.
All complaints and disputes will be carefully and conscientiously examined, the good faith of the person making such claims being at all times assumed. In the event of litigation, the customer should approach the company first to each an out-of-court settlement.
Failing which, the matter shall be referred solely to the Aurillac Commercial Court, whatever the place of delivery and means of payment.
Delos France guarantees that all its articles are manufactured or published in France. For foodstuffs, the customer is duty bound to observe the specified use-by dates.
In any event, Delos France may not be held liable for failure to comply with the regulations and laws of the country of destination, and its liability is in all cases limited to the value of the incriminated product, the said value being that on the date of sale, and no claims made against the brand or company making the product are admissible.
In any event, the customer benefits from the legal dispossession and latent defect guarantee (Art.1625 et seq. of the French Civil Code). If the buyer can provide proof of the latent defect, the vendor is legally bound to remedy the consequences (art.1641 et seq. of the French Civil Code); if the buyer takes the matter before the courts, he should do so "within a short space of time" of discovering the latent defect (art.1648 of the French Civil Code).
