The conclusion of a sales contract implies the acceptance of these General Conditions, regardless of any clauses that may appear on the buyer's documents, unless specifically agreed upon in writing. It is agreed between the contracting parties that the agreements made between SYLink Technologie and the buyer are based on an obligation of means and not of results, regarding the performance of the products offered for sale. The information provided in catalogs, brochures, and price lists does not bind SYLink Technologie, which reserves the right to make any modifications to the dimensions, materials, and shapes of the products shown in its printed materials. The sales contract is definitively concluded, as the case may be, upon receipt by SYLink Technologie of the buyer's order acknowledgment or upon acceptance of the delivery receipt by the buyer. Verbal commitments only become valid after confirmation by an acknowledgment of receipt. Any claims relating to an acknowledgment of receipt or a delivery must be sent to SYLink Technologie within ten days of its dispatch.
They include only the equipment specified in the quote or invoice
Prices are quoted excluding taxes, according to prevailing economic conditions. They are subject to revision at any time depending on the variation in the cost of their constituent elements, in compliance with applicable legislation. Payment, net and without discount, is due upon receipt of the invoice, unless otherwise stated on the invoice, even if the execution of the order has given rise to a claim or dispute. Any delay in payment of invoices will automatically incur payment of interest at the rate set by the Banque de France, increased by two points. If specific terms have been agreed upon, payments must be made on the agreed terms and due dates.
Delivery times are given for information purposes only and depend on the availability of supplies. They are respected to the best of our ability. Delays cannot, under any circumstances, justify the cancellation of the order or a claim for damages. No penalty can be applied in the event of a delay, even after a formal notice has been issued.
The warranty only covers new and non-consumable equipment, unless otherwise specified. Its duration is limited to twelve months from the date of delivery. The warranty is void if the buyer modifies the equipment or has repairs or refurbishments performed by third parties, unless expressly authorized by SYLink Technologie. The warranty is strictly limited to the repair and free replacement of the parts returned by the buyer and recognized as defective. It does not cover the consequences of normal wear and tear of parts or components, negligence, or faulty use. Transport costs are the responsibility of the buyer.
In accordance with amended Law No. 80-135 of May 12, 1980, ownership of the sold equipment will not be transferred to the buyer until full payment of the agreed price has been made. However, the risk of deterioration, loss, or theft of the equipment is transferred to the buyer upon delivery. Therefore, the buyer must take out all necessary insurance to cover these risks..
In the event of disputes concerning the interpretation or performance of the agreed contract, the Commercial Court of Clermont-Ferrand shall have sole jurisdiction, regardless of the sales conditions and accepted payment methods, even in the case of connexity, third-party claims, or multiple sellers..
The same General Conditions apply to international sales for everything not covered by the Incoterms.
