5. DELIVERY

Pricing details are available on the Site, in particular as regards the price of deliveries, which are charged to the Customer.

In the event of damage during transport, the customer must specify this on the deliveryman's packing slip, in the presence of the latter, and confirm within 48 hours of receipt by registered letter or emailsales@powertec-europe.fr in order to receive compensation.

IMPORTANT: the customer is obliged to check the goods at the time of delivery or collection, and must expressly state any reservations about the condition of the goods received on the delivery note.

REMINDER:

Article L.133-3 of the French Commercial Code "Receipt of transported goods extinguishes any action against the carrier for damage or partial loss if, within three days, not including public holidays, following receipt, the consignee has not notified the carrier of his reasoned protest by extrajudicial act or by registered letter. If, within the above-mentioned time limit, a request is made for an expert appraisal pursuant to article L.133-4, this request shall be deemed to constitute a protest without it being necessary to proceed as described in the first paragraph. All stipulations to the contrary are null and void. This last provision does not apply to international transport

Article L.224-65 of the French Consumer Code "When the consumer personally takes delivery of the items transported and when the carrier does not justify having given him the opportunity to effectively check their good condition, the period mentioned in article L.133-3 of the French Commercial Code, which extinguishes any action against the carrier, is extended to ten days."

Except in the case of hidden defects, no claim will be accepted after receipt if the customer has not indicated his reservations on the delivery note. However, the liability of the freight forwarder for damage does not affect the consumer's right to make use of the legal guarantee of conformity and the guarantee against hidden defects if the legal conditions are met.

In the event of loss or total deterioration of the product, the company POWERTEC EUROPE will reimburse the amount of the purchase including shipping costs (in the case of express delivery or a purchase of less than 100 euros).

In the event of difficulties or impossibility of delivery due to imprecision, lack of information or erroneous information provided by the Buyer, our company cannot be held responsible for any return, over-invoicing or impossibility of delivery.

6. PACKAGING

Packaging bearing the brand(s) of POWERTEC may only be used for its products and may not be used for any other purpose or for the sale of other products, even if they are not competing products.

7. RIGHT OF WITHDRAWAL

In accordance with the provisions of articles L. 221-18 et seq. of the French Consumer Code, the Customer has the right to withdraw from the contract within fourteen (14) days of receipt of the Product by the Customer or by a third party designated by the Customer, other than the carrier.

Before the expiry of this period, our company must be informed by the Customer. The latter may :

  • or send us theWithdrawal form (for your information: the Retraction Form document can be opened by clicking on the link)
  • or by sending an e-mail explicitly and clearly stating your wish to withdraw to the following address:sales@powertec-europe.fr

If the Customer exercises his/her right of withdrawal, he/she must return the Product, at his/her own expense, to our company at the address indicated on the withdrawal form, in its original packaging and no later than fourteen (14) days following notification of his/her decision to withdraw.

Products that are damaged, dirty, open and/or incomplete will not be taken back, nor will goods that are likely to deteriorate or expire rapidly.

Our Company will then reimburse the Customer, including delivery costs, at the latest within fourteen (14) days from the date on which our Company has actually collected the Product or from the date on which the Customer has provided proof of shipment of the Product.

EXTRACTS FROM THE CONSUMER CODE

Article L221-18
Consumers have a period of fourteen days to exercise their right of withdrawal from a contract concluded at a distance, following telephone canvassing or off-premises canvassing, without having to give reasons for their decision or incur costs other than those provided for in articles L. 221-23 to L. 221-25.
The period referred to in the first paragraph runs from the day :
1° Of the conclusion of the contract, for contracts for the provision of services and those mentioned in article L. 221-4;
2° On receipt of the goods by the consumer or a third party, other than the carrier, designated by the consumer, for contracts for the sale of goods. For off-premises contracts, the consumer may exercise his right of withdrawal from the moment the contract is concluded.
In the case of an order for several goods delivered separately, or in the case of an order for a good made up of multiple batches or parts whose delivery is staggered over a defined period, the time limit runs from receipt of the last good, batch or part.
For contracts providing for the regular delivery of goods over a defined period, the period runs from receipt of the first good.

Article L221-19
In accordance with Council Regulation No. 1182/71/EEC of June 3, 1971 determining the rules applicable to periods, dates and time limits :
1° The day on which the contract is concluded or the day on which the goods are received is not counted in the period mentioned in article L. 221-18;
2° The period begins at the beginning of the first hour of the first day and ends at the end of the last hour of the last day of the period;
3° If this period expires on a Saturday, Sunday or public holiday, it is extended until the next working day.

Article L221-20
Where information on the right of withdrawal has not been provided to the consumer under the conditions set out in 2° of article L. 221-5, the withdrawal period is extended by twelve months from the expiry of the initial withdrawal period, determined in accordance with article L. 221-18.
However, where this information is provided during this extension period, the withdrawal period expires at the end of a period of fourteen days from the day on which the consumer received this information.

Article L221-21
The consumer exercises his right of withdrawal by informing the trader of his decision to withdraw by sending, before the expiry of the period provided for in article L. 221-18, the withdrawal form mentioned in 2° of article L. 221-5 or any other unambiguous statement expressing his wish to withdraw.
The trader may also allow the consumer to fill in and submit online, on his website, the form or declaration provided for in the first paragraph. In this case, the trader shall immediately provide the consumer with an acknowledgement of receipt of the withdrawal on a durable medium.

Article L221-22
The burden of proof that the right of withdrawal has been exercised under the conditions set out in article L. 221-21 lies with the consumer.

Article L221-23
The consumer shall return or restitute the goods to the trader or to a person designated by the latter, without undue delay and, at the latest, within fourteen days of communicating his decision to withdraw in accordance with article L. 221-21, unless the trader offers to collect the goods himself.
The consumer only bears the direct costs of returning the goods, unless the trader agrees to bear them or has failed to inform the consumer that these costs are to be borne by him. However, for off-premises contracts, where the goods are delivered to the consumer's home at the time the contract is concluded, the trader will collect the goods at his own expense if they cannot be returned normally by post due to their nature.
The consumer may only be held liable in the event of depreciation of the goods resulting from handling other than that necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and proper functioning of these goods, provided that the professional has informed the consumer of his right of withdrawal, in accordance with 2° of article L. 221-5.

Article L221-24
Where the right of withdrawal is exercised, the trader shall reimburse the consumer for all sums paid, including delivery costs, without undue delay and no later than fourteen days from the date on which he is informed of the consumer's decision to withdraw.
For contracts for the sale of goods, unless the trader offers to collect the goods himself, the trader may defer reimbursement until he has collected the goods or until the consumer has provided proof that the goods have been dispatched, whichever is the earlier.
The trader makes this refund using the same means of payment as the one used by the consumer for the initial transaction, unless the consumer expressly agrees to use another means of payment and insofar as the refund does not incur any costs for the consumer.
The trader is not obliged to reimburse additional costs if the consumer has expressly chosen a more expensive method of delivery than the standard method offered by the trader.

Article L221-25
If the consumer wishes the performance of a service or a contract mentioned in the first paragraph of article L. 221-4 to begin before the end of the withdrawal period mentioned in article L. 221-18, the trader shall receive his express request by any means for contracts concluded at a distance and on paper or on a durable medium for contracts concluded off-premises.
A consumer who has exercised his right to withdraw from a contract for the provision of services or from a contract referred to in the first paragraph of article L. 221-4, the performance of which has begun, at his express request, before the end of the withdrawal period, shall pay the trader an amount corresponding to the service provided up to the communication of his decision to withdraw; this amount shall be proportionate to the total price of the service agreed in the contract. If the total price is excessive, the appropriate amount is calculated on the basis of the market value of what has been supplied.
No sum is due by the consumer who has exercised his right of withdrawal if his express request has not been received in application of the first paragraph or if the professional has not complied with the information obligation provided for in 4° of article L. 221-5.

Article L221-26
A consumer who has exercised his right of withdrawal from a contract for the supply of digital content not provided on a tangible medium is not liable for any sum if :
1° The trader has not obtained his prior express agreement to perform the contract before the end of the withdrawal period and the proof of his waiver of his right of withdrawal;
2° The contract does not include the information specified in the third paragraph of article L. 221-9 and the second paragraph of article L. 221-13.

Article L221-27
Exercising the right of withdrawal puts an end to the parties' obligation either to perform the distance or off-premises contract, or to conclude it when the consumer has made an offer.
Exercising the right of withdrawal from a main distance or off-premises contract automatically terminates any accessory contract, at no cost to the consumer other than those provided for in articles L. 221-23 to L. 221-25.

Article L221-28
The right of withdrawal cannot be exercised for contracts :
1° Supply of services fully performed before the end of the withdrawal period and whose performance has begun after the consumer's express prior agreement and express waiver of his right of withdrawal ;
2° The supply of goods or services whose price depends on fluctuations in the financial market beyond the control of the trader and which may occur during the withdrawal period ;
3° Supply of goods made to the consumer's specifications or clearly personalized ;
4° Supply of goods liable to deteriorate or expire rapidly ;
5° Supply of goods which have been unsealed by the consumer after delivery and which cannot be returned for reasons of hygiene or health protection ;
6° The supply of goods which, after delivery and by their nature, are inseparably mixed with other articles ;
7° The supply of alcoholic beverages whose delivery is deferred beyond thirty days and whose value agreed at the conclusion of the contract depends on fluctuations in the market beyond the control of the trader ;
8° Maintenance or repair work to be carried out urgently at the consumer's home and expressly requested by the consumer, within the limit of spare parts and work strictly necessary to respond to the emergency ;
9° Supply of audio or video recordings or computer software when they have been unsealed by the consumer after delivery ;
10° Supply of a newspaper, periodical or magazine, except for subscription contracts for these publications ;
11° Concluded at a public auction ;
12° Accommodation services, other than residential accommodation, goods transport services, car rental, catering or leisure activities which must be provided on a specific date or at a specific time ;
13° The supply of digital content not provided on a tangible medium, the performance of which has begun after the consumer has given his express prior consent and expressly waived his right of withdrawal.

10. WARRANTIES - LIABILITY

For any request relating to legal guarantees, please contact :sales@powertec-europe.fr

10.1. LEGAL WARRANTIES

Unless the legal criteria are not met, the customer benefits from the legal guarantees.

Our company is therefore liable for defects in conformity and latent defects under the conditions set out respectively in Articles L.211-1 et seq. of the French Consumer Code and 1641 et seq. of the French Civil Code.

Article L217-15 of the French Consumer Code

A commercial guarantee is any contractual commitment by a professional to a consumer to reimburse the purchase price, replace or repair the good or provide any other service related to the good, in addition to his legal obligations to guarantee the conformity of the good.

The commercial warranty is the subject of a written contract, a copy of which is given to the purchaser.

The contract specifies the content of the warranty, the terms and conditions of its implementation, its price, duration and territorial scope, as well as the name and address of the guarantor.

In addition, it clearly and precisely states that, independently of the commercial warranty, the seller remains bound by the legal warranty of conformity mentioned in articles L. 217-4 to L. 217-12 and that relating to defects in the item sold, under the conditions set out in articles 1641 to 1648 and 2232 of the French Civil Code.

The provisions of articles L. 217-4, L. 217-5, L. 217-12 and L. 217-16 as well as article 1641 and the first paragraph of article 1648 of the French Civil Code are reproduced in full in the contract.

In the event of non-compliance with these provisions, the warranty remains valid. The purchaser is entitled to avail himself of this right.

Article L217-16 of the French Consumer Code

When the buyer asks the seller, during the course of the commercial warranty granted at the time of the purchase or repair of a movable good, for a repair covered by the warranty, any period of immobilization of at least seven days is added to the remaining warranty period.

This period runs from the date of the buyer's request for service, or from the date the goods in question are made available for repair, if the goods are made available after the request for service.

  • Civil Code - Article 1641: The seller is liable for any hidden defects in the item sold which render it unfit for its intended use, or which impair that use to such an extent that the buyer would not have purchased it, or would have paid a lower price for it, had he been aware of them.
  • Code Civil - Article 1648 paragraph 1: The action resulting from redhibitory defects must be brought by the purchaser within two years of the discovery of the defect.

10.2. RESPONSIBILITY

Our company cannot be held responsible for any damage whatsoever or prejudice suffered by the Customer in the event of :

  • misuse of the Product, allergy, non-compliance with instructions, in particular for maintenance and/or conditions of use ;
  • insurmountable and unforeseeable act of a third party to the contract ;
  • force majeure as indicated below.

In the event of damage caused by a safety defect in the Product, the consumer must seek the liability of the identifiable manufacturer based on the information provided on the product packaging.

11. FORCE MAJEURE

Our company shall not be held liable in the event of force majeure, usually recognized as such by French case law, or a health crisis preventing or abnormally reducing our supplies and deliveries of our goods, or seriously altering the conditions thereof.

12. INDEPENDENCE OF PROVISIONS

Should any provision of these General Terms and Conditions of Sale be declared null and void or inapplicable, the remaining provisions of these General Terms and Conditions of Sale shall remain in full force and effect.

13. DATA PROTECTION

Our customers' personal data is processed in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation.

Our Privacy Policy is appended to these terms and conditions.

14. INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY

Any reproduction, representation in whole or in part, by any means whatsoever, without the consent of our company is strictly prohibited and will give rise to legal proceedings.

No hypertext links may be set up without our express prior written consent.

15. NO WAIVER

The non-application, in whole or in part, or even the delay in the application of any of the provisions by a Party shall not be interpreted or understood as a waiver by that Party of the application of the provision concerned.

16. INTEGRALITY

These General Terms and Conditions of Sale constitute the entire agreement between the parties.

17. APPLICABLE LAW - DISPUTES

These General Terms and Conditions of Sale are governed exclusively by French law.

In the event of a dispute concerning the interpretation or execution of their agreements, the parties will seek to reach an amicable settlement before taking any legal action.

Failing this, any dispute will be referred to the competent courts under the conditions of common law.

18. MEDIATION
