Prior to the order
The customer acknowledges having read, at the time of placing the order, the general conditions of sale below, and declares their acceptance of them without reservation.
The registration process is proof of the nature, content and date of the order. The sale is concluded only after confirmation of the order by Cap Régions Éditions, provided to the customer at the email address that the latter has communicated. The order validated by the customer will only be considered effective when the banks concerned have given their agreement. Cap Régions Éditions reserves the right to cancel any order from a customer with whom there is a dispute concerning a previous order: payment period, delivery conditions, etc.
Postage and delivery
Unless otherwise specified, delivery times are only given as an indication, and any delays, beyond the control of Cap Régions Éditions, do not give the buyer the right to cancel the sale, refuse the goods or to claim damages. Delivery can be made directly to the buyer’s address or by La Poste. For deliveries outside mainland France, the customer agrees to pay all taxes due on the importation of products, customs duty, value added tax, and all other taxes due under the laws of the country of receipt of the order. Cap Régions Éditions de facto disclaims all liability if the payment of taxes was not made by the customer.
International deliveries are made by La Poste via their Colissimo service. All our products travel at the buyer’s risk, regardless of the mode of transport or the terms of payment of the price of transport or postage due. Cap Régions Éditions cannot be held responsible for their inability to deliver the product in the event of an error in the wording of the recipient’s contact details. Cases of force majeure releasing the seller from their obligation to deliver: war, riots, fires, strikes, accidents, and the impossibility of obtaining supplies. For reasons of availability, an order may be delivered in several instalments. The customer then bears the costs of only one delivery.
Prices are expressed in euros. The price indicated on the products does not include transport. The price indicated in the order confirmation is the final price, inclusive of all taxes and including VAT at the legal rate applicable at the time of the order for France and the countries of the EEC. This price includes the price of the products, the costs of handling, packaging and storage of the products, and the costs of transport and commissioning. Payment of online orders is carried out on the website. The price of the products is payable in cash on the day of the order. Payment is made by CB bank card. Your card number is therefore directed to the bank’s servers, your payment is made directly to a bank in a secure environment without going through the store’s server, a guarantee that is all the more important as your numbers are known only to our banking partner. In case of refusal of the aforementioned bank, the order will be automatically cancelled and the customer notified by e-mail.
Payment of pre-orders.
Unless otherwise agreed between the parties and duly mentioned on the invoice or the delivery note, our invoices are payable in cash, by cheque or bank transfer within the period provided for by article L441-6 of the commercial code, i.e. at the latest no later than the thirtieth day following the date of receipt of the goods or provision of the service requested. By express agreement, the non-payment of a single instalment or any failure to fulfil one of the obligations for which the buyer is responsible:
- I) entails:
– the immediate payment of any amount remaining due, regardless of the method and term of payment initially planned
– the payment of a late payment penalty under the terms of the law of March 22, 2012, the main provisions of which are recalled below:
“From January 1, 2013, the rate of applicable late payment penalties, in the absence of an agreement between the parties, is equal to the refinancing rate of the ECB (European Central Bank) plus 10 points.”,
– as a penalty clause, the payment of compensation for recovery, defined in this same law:
“It is also provided that in addition to the penalties for delay provided for by law, any professional in a situation of late payment is automatically debtor, with regard to the creditor, of a lump sum compensation for recovery costs, the minimum amount of which was set by decree of October 2, 2012, article D. 441-5, at €40.”
- II) authorizes Cap Régions Éditions to postpone new deliveries. The buyer agrees not to stake a claim against the seller to defer payment of a due date in whole or in part or to provide compensation.
Exclusion of liability
The photographs and texts reproduced in the works are not comprised in this contractual field. Consequently, Cap Régions Éditions cannot be held liable in the event of an error in one of these photographs or one of these texts. The proposed works comply with the French legislation currently in force. For international sales, Cap Régions Éditions declines all responsibility if the item delivered does not comply with the legislation of the country of delivery. The responsibility of Cap Régions Éditions is not engaged in the event of non-performance of the contract due to a shortage of stock or unavailability of the products, in the event of a total or partial strike of the shipping services, in the case of force majeure, flood, fire, etc. Nor are they responsible for the content of websites that mention their works.
This contract is subject to French law. The responsibility of Cap Régions Éditions will, in any event, be limited to the value of the order and cannot be invoked for simple errors or omissions which may have occurred despite all precautions being taken in the presentation of the products. It is recalled that as a general rule and subject to the judgment of the Courts, compliance with the provisions of this contract assumes that the buyer honours their financial commitments to the seller. Complaints or disputes will always be received with attention, good faith being always presumed in those who take the trouble to explain their situation. In the event of a dispute, the customer will first contact the company to obtain an amicable solution. We do not accept any return of goods without our prior written agreement. Failing this, the Commercial Court of Compiègne has sole jurisdiction, regardless of the place of delivery and the method of payment used.
