GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SALE
TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Article 1 - GENERAL PROVISIONS - SCOPE OF APPLICATION
1.1 These General Terms and Conditions of Sale ("the GTC") determine the rights and obligations of the parties in connection with the online sale of Products offered by the company GLS Corp ("the Company").
1.2 Any Order placed on the website implies prior acceptance without restriction of these Terms and Conditions of Sale, which are subject to French law. These GCS are therefore an integral part of the Contract between the Client and the Company. They are fully enforceable against the Client, who declares that he has read them and accepted them, without restriction or reservation, before placing the Order.
1.3 These GCS apply to any Order placed by an individual of legal age acting as a consumer. The Customer therefore certifies that it is a natural person over 18 years of age, acting for purposes that do not fall within the scope of its commercial, industrial, craft, liberal or agricultural activity. He acknowledges that he has the full capacity to commit himself when he places an Order and undertakes to provide truthful elements as to his identity.
1.4 EXCLUSION: Persons acting in a professional capacity, i.e. natural or legal persons, public or private, who act for purposes falling within the scope of their commercial, industrial, craft, liberal or agricultural activity, including if they act in the name or on behalf of another professional, are expressly excluded from the scope of these GCS.
Professionals who wish to place an Order with the Company are invited to contact us directly.
1.5 The GCS applicable to each Order are those in force on the date of payment (or the first payment in the event of multiple payments) of the Order . The Company reserves the right to modify them at any time by publishing a new version on its website. These GTC can be consulted on the Company's website and can be downloaded in pdf format.
Article 2 - CONCLUSION OF THE CONTRACT ONLINE
2.1. Process of placing the Order
To purchase one or more Products on the site, the Customer selects each Product and adds it to his basket. Once his selection is complete, he must confirm his basket to proceed to the Order (1st click).
At this point, the Client is redirected to a page containing :
A summary of the selected Products, the corresponding prices, the terms and conditions and the delivery charges. It is then up to him to check and possibly correct the contents of his basket.
The present Terms and Conditions of Sale. It is the responsibility of the Customer to read them carefully before validating the entire Order.
This validation of the Order after checking the basket and reading the GCS (second click) is equivalent to the conclusion of the Contract and the Customer acknowledges that the second click entails an obligation of payment on his part.
The Customer is then redirected to the payment page. He can choose between the different payment methods proposed and proceeds to the payment of his Order.
After validating his Order and making payment, the Customer receives a confirmation message from the Company at the email address he provided to create his account. This message contains, in pdf format
The summary of his order (Product selected, price, terms and conditions and delivery costs);
The precise identification of SAS GLS Corp and its activity;
The number of the Order;
The terms and conditions and the withdrawal form;
These GCS in pdf format.
In the event of non-receipt of the Order confirmation, the Client is recommended to contact the Company via the contact form on the website.
The Customer shall then receive a purchase invoice transmitted in electronic form, which the Customer expressly accepts.
The Client is strongly advised to keep this confirmation message and the purchase invoice that is also sent to him/her in electronic format, as these documents may be produced as proof of the Contract.
2.2 Cases where the Company refuses to validate the Order
The Company reserves the right to refuse your Order for any legitimate reason, including for example :
Order not conforming to the GCS ;
Quantities ordered not corresponding to a normal use by a consumer Customer;
Non-payment of a previous Order or current litigation concerning a previous Order;
Suspicion of fraud on the Order (supported by a bundle of corroborating evidence).
Article 3 - SPECIFICATIONS AND AVAILABILITY OF PRODUCTS
3.1 Product Specifications
The essential characteristics of the goods and their respective prices are made available to the Client on the Company's websites, as well as information on the use of the product, where applicable.
Although the Company takes reasonable care to ensure that the Specifications are accurate, such Specifications, subject to certain exceptions, such as pricing information, are provided by the Company's suppliers. Accordingly, the Company assumes no responsibility for any errors that may be contained in the Specifications.
The Specifications are presented in detail and in the French language. The Parties agree that the illustrations, videos or photos of the Products oﬀerts for sale have no contractual value. The period of validity of the oﬀre of the Products as well as their prices is specified on the Company's websites.
3.2 Availability of the Products
Product offers are valid within the limit of stocks available from our suppliers. This availability of Products is normally indicated on the specific page of the Product.
However, insofar as the Company does not reserve stock (except in special cases of Products indicated as pre-ordered on the Product sheet), placing a Product in the shopping basket does not absolutely guarantee the availability of the Product or its price.
In the event that a Product becomes unavailable after the validation of the Customer's Order, the Company shall immediately inform the Customer by email. The Order shall be automatically cancelled and the Company shall proceed to refund the price of the Product initially ordered, as well as any sums paid in respect of the Order.
However, if the Order contains Products other than the Product that has become unavailable, these shall be delivered to the Customer and the delivery costs shall not be refunded.
Article 4 - PRICE OF PRODUCTS
4.1 Reference prices indicated on the sites
The reference price of the Products offered on the site is the price recommended by the brand, the manufacturer or its official representative. Failing this, it is a price determined according to the prices at which the Product is commonly sold in a panel of signs distributing it. This price is updated as soon as the brand, the manufacturer or its official representative communicates a new recommended price for the Product or as soon as the price charged within the panel of signs is modified.
4.2 Modification of the prices indicated on the sites
The prices of the Products are indicated on the description pages of the Products. They are indicated exclusive of tax, customs duties and shipping costs. The Company reserves the right to modify the prices of the Products at any time, in compliance with applicable legislation.
The Products ordered shall be invoiced on the basis of the price in force on the site at the time the Order is validated.
4.3 Product prices
Insofar as many Products are imported from abroad (outside the European Union) at the Customer's request, the prices of the Products sold through the Internet sites are indicated in Euros excluding taxes (excluding VAT and customs duties) unless otherwise indicated. They are precisely determined on the Product description pages. They are also indicated in Euros, exclusive of tax (VAT and customs duties), unless otherwise specified, on the Sales Order page of the Products, and exclusive of specific shipping costs.
The prices of the Products do not include import VAT, import taxes or customs duties, which must be paid in addition and shall be entirely at the expense of the Customer, who is liable for these taxes as the recipient of the Product.
The prices of the Product(s) do not include the costs of packing, packaging, shipping, transport, insurance and delivery of the Product(s) to the delivery address.
4.4 Payment of taxes
The Customer is solely responsible for the process of declaration and payment of import VAT when clearing the Product through customs. He may be asked to pay the import VAT. Insofar as this tax is not the responsibility of the Company, it may not be required to reimburse this tax.
For all products shipped outside the European Union and/or DOM-TOM, the price is automatically calculated net of tax on the invoice. Customs duties or other local taxes or import duties or state taxes may be payable in certain cases. The Company has no control over these duties and sums.
They shall be borne by the Client and are the Client's responsibility (declarations, payment to the competent authorities, etc.). The Company therefore invites the Client to enquire about these aspects with the relevant local authorities.
Article 5 - PAYMENT OF THE PRICE OF THE PRODUCTS
5.1 Timing of Payment
The payment of the totality of the price of the Order must be made immediately after the validation of the Order.
The Company may, exceptionally, grant payment in several instalments, particularly in view of the amount to be paid and its knowledge of the Customer concerned. However, the Company is under no obligation to grant such terms of payment. In the event of a particular situation, the Client may make a request by contacting the Company's Customer Service Department at the following address contact.buffalo.pro @ gmail.com.
5.2 Methods of payment
To pay for his Order, the Customer can choose between different payment methods:
Payment by credit card :
Only bank cards attached to a banking establishment located in France or international bank cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Maestro) are accepted. The Client guarantees the Company that he has the necessary authorisations to pay with the bank card used. He expressly acknowledges that the commitment to pay by card is irrevocable and that the communication of his bank card number is tantamount to authorisation to debit his account up to the total amount corresponding to the Products ordered. The amount shall be debited at the time the Order is validated.
Payments by credit card are made via a secure payment platform and the credit card information communicated shall benefit from the SSL encryption process.
Payment via Paypal
Payment by Paypal is accepted up to a limit of 1.000 €.
Payment by vouchers and/or promo codes
Purchase vouchers and/or promotional codes issued by the Company may be used to pay for all or part of the Order. These vouchers and/or promotional codes are valid only once. In the event of attempted fraudulent use of the vouchers and/or promotional codes, the Company may cancel the Order outright.
Generally speaking, in the event of refusal of payment authorisation by officially accredited bodies or in the event of non-payment of the Order, the Company reserves the right to suspend and/or cancel the said Order.
The Company reserves the right to suspend any of the payment methods at any time, in particular in the event that a payment service provider no longer offers the service used or in the event of a dispute with a Customer concerning a previous Order.
The Company reserves the right to set up an Order verification procedure intended to ensure that no one uses another person's bank details without their knowledge. As part of this verification, the Client may be asked to send the Company by email or by post a copy of an identity document, proof of address and a copy of the bank card used for payment. Precise indications on the exact content of the information requested (to preserve the confidentiality of his data) will be communicated to the Client in case of verification. The order will be validated only after receipt and verification of the documents sent.
Article 6 - DELIVERY - CUSTOMS - RECEIPT
Before validating the Order, the Company shall provide the Customer with information concerning the various delivery terms and their respective prices. Following the choice of delivery method by the Client, the Company shall provide the Client with an estimate of the delivery time.
The Company will make every effort to ensure that the Product(s) is (are) delivered by the scheduled delivery date at the latest. In the event of any difficulty, the Company undertakes to communicate rapidly with the Customer to inform him/her of the problem and to seek with him/her an appropriate solution.
Air transport, shipping and/or delivery of the Product(s) will be fully paid by the Customer ("Delivery Costs"). These Delivery Costs are included in the final price invoiced to the Customer at the time of the Order. On the other hand, any customs charges are not included in the price invoiced to the Customer by the Company.
Depending on the methods chosen by the Customer, delivery shall be made either to the address given by the Customer or, where applicable, to a relay point chosen by the Customer from the list of available points. It is therefore incumbent on the Client to check the delivery details carefully, as he remains solely responsible in the event of non-delivery due to incomplete or erroneous information.
6.2 Customs clearance
At the time of purchase, the Customer buys the product duty-free and becomes the importer of the purchased product in his capacity as the recipient of the Product.
He is therefore particularly responsible for the processes of importing and clearing the product through local customs offices. Depending on the price of his order, he may be asked to pay customs duties (for Products with a customs value of more than €150).
The Customer is solely responsible for the process of declaring customs duties when clearing the Product through customs. These customs duties, which are not invoiced to the Client by the Company, are not the responsibility of the Company. The Company shall therefore not be liable for the reimbursement of these duties.
Upon receipt of the Product, the Customer undertakes to check that the Product is complete and undamaged.
In the event of an anomaly being noted, the Customer must contact the Company's Customer Service within three days (excluding public holidays) following the date of receipt of the Product. Any complaint filed after this deadline cannot be processed.
Article 7 - WITHDRAWAL
7.1 Principle and timeframe
The Customer has the right to withdraw, without giving any reason, within fourteen (14) calendar days from the date of receipt of his Order. In the event of an Order for several Products, the period runs from the date of receipt of the last Product.
In the event of exercise of the right of withdrawal within the aforementioned period, the price of the Product(s) purchased and the shipping costs shall be reimbursed, with the return shipping costs remaining the responsibility of the Customer.

If the Client wishes to make use of this guarantee, he should inform the Company by contacting Customer Service and consult the guarantee application terms and conditions, which are generally inserted in the box concerning the Product.
