All orders imply acceptance of our general terms and conditions of sale, regardless of any clauses that may appear on the customer’s order forms.
If, as a result of a favour, Public Address does not invoke one of these clauses, it does not waive its right to do so the next time.
All orders must be dated, signed and bear a commercial stamp.
Invoiced prices are based on the tariff in force on the day of delivery, regardless of the date of receipt of the order.
Public Address reserves the right to modify its prices at any time. All our prices are subject to VAT in force on the day of sale.
Prices are subject to fluctuations due to currency fluctuations and changes in manufacturers’ or suppliers’ prices.
The buyer will be covered by the necessary insurance for all damage caused by his own actions and those of the equipment.
TERMS OF PAYMENT
Unless otherwise stipulated, our invoices are payable with a deposit of 50% and the balance on delivery or collection of the equipment; there is no discount for early payment.
Special cases, agreements for payment within 30 or 60 days, etc., are indicated on the front of the invoice.
In the event of late payment, a penalty will be payable and calculated from the day following the due date, on the basis of an interest rate of 11.50%.
Delivery times are given as an indication only.
Any delays, whatever their causes, extent or consequences, do not entitle the buyer to cancel the sale, refuse the goods or claim damages. All our products are deemed to be taken.
Products travel at the risk of the recipient, who must check the contents of the packages in the presence of the delivery person and report any anomalies. Complaints must be made to the carrier within a maximum of 3 days and to Public Address within 8 days of receipt of the products, by registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt. Shipping costs will be agreed with the buyer at the time of ordering. No return of products will be accepted without prior written authorization from Public Address. The responsibility of Public Address can in no case go beyond the replacement or refund of the defective product.
Law N° 80-335 of 12 May 1980.
By express agreement between Public Address and the buyer, it is agreed that the products sold by Public Address will remain its property until full payment by full collection which, alone, operates the transfer of ownership.
In the event of non-payment on one of the agreed dates, the sale will be cancelled ipso jure.
From the time of delivery of the products, the purchaser alone shall be liable for their loss, destruction or any other damage, which must be covered by insurance. The goods sold may be used in accordance with their resale purpose. Products still in the possession of the purchaser are always presumed to be those still unpaid and may be taken back in compensation for invoices still unpaid. In the event of liquidation of the buyer’s assets or judicial settlement, Public Address reserves the right to prohibit any use of goods remaining in stock.
ELECTION OF DOMICILE AND JURISDICTION
The election of domicile is made by Public Address at its registered office.
In the event of a dispute relating to the interpretation or execution of a sales contract, the Commercial Court of Lille shall have sole jurisdiction, even in the event of multiple defendants.
Our bills of exchange or acceptance of payment do not novate or derogate from this jurisdiction clause.
