General sales terms and conditions
1 > Purchase orders
Purchase orders are only deemed valid once we have sent our written confirmation. Due to the possibility of making technical improvements, we reserve the right to modify our equipment with
no prior notice. Our catalogue and price schedule cover equipment operating at a voltage of 230 V, 50 Hz, switch-start where applicable, or electronic power supply when this is stated.
Equipment operation is at an ambient temperature of 30°C. For any other use, please ask. Our prices are given in euros excluding VAT, which is added to the total invoiced amount at the valid legal rate on the date of invoicing.
2 > Delivery times
Delivery times, stated on our order confirmation forms, are given for information only and may not give rise to any penalties or damages in the event of non-compliance.
3 > Transportation
Carriage and packaging paid, within mainland France, for any order delivered in full in one go, and for a value exceeding 700.00 euros net of tax. Special terms and conditions for export are to be defined on a case-by-case basis. The buyer must check the delivery in the
presence of the driver if they mean to issue a claim regarding transportation of the goods; any claims should be marked on the delivery slip.
4 > Returns
Returns of goods require prior, written approval from our company. Goods manufactured to special order will not be accepted for return. Shipped carriage and packaging paid, in their original packaging, the goods will only be accepted once they have undergone a quality control; a credit note equal to 80% of the initial invoice amount will be issued provided that the returned goods are in perfect working order. Otherwise, all costs incurred in making the goods ready for sale will be deemed deductible. We do not, under any circumstances, accept returns of lamps, fluorescent tubes and other light sources.
5 > Warranty
The goods are guaranteed against all construction or material defects, for a period of one year, but not against damage due to a transportation or handling-related accident, or to incorrect use, or to modification of our equipment. Our warranty is limited to replacement of any parts recognised as defective, with no compensation for late delivery, return carriage, assembly or removal or for any other loss of any nature whatsoever.
6 > Payment
Our invoices are payable at 30 days date of the invoice, net with no discount. Should the buyer have difficulty in paying, we reserve the right to request guarantees, failing which the contract may be terminated, with no compensation or formal notice. Following this payment time, the buyer will be required to pay interests. Failure to pay an invoice on its due date will result in the enforceability of the total outstanding amount.
7 > Reservations of ownership
“The purchase order recorded above was placed according to our general sales terms and conditions and includes this clause on the reservation of ownership: our company reserves ownership of the sold goods up to full and final encashment of the related invoices.
The buyer is authorised to resell the goods as part of its normal business operations, owever, in return, it irrevocably transfers to our company all the resulting receivables that have been generated or will be generated in its favour, up to full payment of its price to our company.”
8 > Place of jurisdiction
In the event of dispute, the Commercial Court in Clermont-Ferrand (France) shall have sole jurisdiction, even in the event of a thirdparty complaint or multiple defendants. Our bills of exchange or payment approvals do not constitute either a disclaimer or a waiver of this jurisdiction clause.
9 > Directive 2002/96/CE
For luminaires sold by SUNLUX and governed by directive 2002/96/EC, responsibility for recovery and recycling at the end of the product’s service life is transferred to the final holder. Prices for lamps governed by directive 2002/96/EC concerning waste electrical and electronic equipment (DEEE) are increased by the total amount of the cost incurred in recovering and recycling the goods in compliance with the terms of the directive on the date of its application.
10 > Technical data
The drawings, technical data and photographs contained in this catalogue are not covered by contract. We reserve the right to modify the styling or technology of our equipment, with no prior notice, concerning any improvement we may deem necessary.
