Article 1: Acceptation of conditions of use

The client accepts the present conditions of use from the moment an order is validated by clicking on the acceptation button.

 

These present conditions of use prevail over all other general or particular conditions.

 

Sajou Distribution reserves the right to modify the conditions of use at any moment. In this case, the applicable conditions will be those in effect at the date of purchase by the client.

 

Article 2: Confirmation of order

The order passed by the client on the website will only be considered as accepted after confirmation from Sajou Distribution. The client will receive an e-mail as acknowledgement of receipt confirming the order and the total amount.

 

Sajou Distribution reserves the right to not confirm an order. The order refusal will be notified by e-mail.

If an order is passed by postal mail, the order will not be confirmed by letter. Only a refusal of the order will be sent either by letter or e-mail.

The client cannot cancel the order unless the payment is not accepted or if the amount indicated in the confirmation e-mail is at least 10% superior to the price indicated on sajou.fr.

 

Article 3: Offer

The products for sale are those figuring on sajou.fr.

These products are offered for sale on the site subject to availability.

 

Article 4: Price, free shipping, invoice

All prices are expressed in Euros.

 

Sajou Distribution reserves the right to modify the prices at any moment. This being said, the price paid by the client will always be the price displayed at the moment of purchase. It does not include shipping costs, which will be calculated in the order confirmation.

The prices indicated include all taxes applicable at the time of order. For all shipments outside the European Union, the client must pay all relative taxes and duties due to the importation of these goods.

The weight of the goods is automatically calculated to include packing costs.

 

Article 5: Secure payment

All data relative to the payment of order is encoded so that your information is protected during transmissions to the payment centre.

The amount of the order appears on the confirmation of the order. The client guarantees to Sajou Distribution the payment of the amount of the order by the chosen method of payment.

 

The client can pay for the order:

 

  1. By Paypal, secure internet payment site. Use of Paypal by the client, who must have a valid e-mail address, is free of charge.

 

  1. By credit card: VISA or Eurocard-Mastercard only. All payment by credit card goes through the Cyberplus secure payment system, operated through La Banque Populaire and using SSL protocol (secure socket layer). At no moment are any of your bank details accessible to anyone at Sajou Distribution, La Banque Populaire or any technical intermediary.

You will automatically be informed of the status of your payment (acceptation or refusal) with a hypertext link inviting you to return back to sajou.fr and the updating of your order on this site.

This system guarantees a better payment security than by the transmission of your card

details by fax, which we also accept.

 

  1. For customers in France only, by cheque made out to Sajou Distribution for the total amount, shipment included. If Sajou Distribution does not receive the cheque within 10 days, or if the cheque is refused by the bank, we reserve the right to cancel the order.

The client can obtain an invoice by simple request or by printing it out on their account.

 

Article 6: Non-payment and retention of title clause

The ordered products remain the property of Sajou Distribution until the definitive and total payment conforming to the terms of law n° 80 335 dated 12th May 1980.

The delivery date may vary according to the article ordered, the quantities ordered and the final destination. The delivery dates indicated on sajou.fr are purely indicative: if the delay is longer than 30 days from the order date, the sales contract can be terminated and the client reimbursed. The delivery is considered to have been made at the moment the delivery service hands the order over to the client. The delivery slip must imperatively be signed and dated by the client upon delivery of the order. This slip constitutes a proof of delivery.

 

Article 10: Withdrawal, reserves, reimbursement and replacement

The client has the right to retract from any order within ten days from the delivery date of their order to return the product to Sajou Distribution for an exchange or reimbursement, with no penalties, apart from the cost of the return shipping.

 

At the moment of delivery, the client must verify the conformity and state of the products.

 

In the case of delays, deteriorations, partial or total loss of the products or any other problem, the client can refuse the delivery, indicating the reason for the refusal on the delivery note or at the latest 3 days after the delivery by registered letter to Sajou Distribution.

 

In the case of an error in the delivery, the client accepts to return the product(s) within a delay of 7 days of reception to Sajou Distribution. As soon as the products are returned, Sajou Distribution will send out the product originally ordered.

 

Sajou Distribution cannot accept returns of products for a difference of colours and the colours on the site cannot be considered as contractual.

 

If the delivery does not contain the totality of the order, Sajou Distribution accepts to ship the rest of the order, completely at their charge, unless the client prefers to be reimbursed for the undelivered quantity.

 

Article 11: Force majeure

Considered as force majeure, other than those normally taken into consideration by case law in French courts: total or partial strikes, blockades on transport, government restrictions, computer breakdowns, telecommunication blockades, notably concerning the use of internet.

In the case of an incidence of force majeure, the execution of the order will be momentarily suspended. If the incidence persists for longer than 3 months, the order will automatically be suspended, unless otherwise agreed by the two parties.

 

Article 12: Withdrawal of products in case of absence

If the client is absent at the delivery, the postal services will submit an advice notice at the delivery address indicated by the client. The products must be withdrawn at the address indicated on the advice notice. If the goods are not withdrawn, they will be returned to Sajou Distribution who reserves the right to reimburse the cost, less shipping charges, with a discount of 20%.
