1. Scope of the General Terms and Conditions of Sale The present General Terms of Sale apply to all orders for products that we offer for sale, placed on the website www.acton.fr (hereinafter referred to as "the Website") by professional customers in connection with their professional activity. All orders imply the customer's full and unqualified acceptance of these General Terms, unless special conditions are granted or accepted in writing by the parties. They take precedence over all other conditions and documents, in particular the customer's general terms and conditions of purchase. All documents other than the present General Terms of Sale, in particular all catalogues, brochures, advertisements and instructions, are provided for information only and are non-contractual. If we do not require performance at a given time of any of the clauses of the present General Terms, this does not constitute a waiver of our right to require performance of them later on. We reserve the right to adapt or modify the present General Terms of Sale at any time. If the event of a modification, the General Terms of Sale in force at the time the order is placed shall apply. If one of the provisions hereof is deemed null and void on any grounds whatsoever, all of the other provisions hereof retain their binding nature between the parties.
2. Protection of personal data of natural persons We process personal data. This is the data that the customer, who is a natural person, or the legal representative of the customer, provides directly when placing the order and/or creating a customer account (title, first name, surname, postal address, email address, phone number, company registration number (SIREN), company unit registration number (SIRET) etc.). A customer who is a natural person, or the legal representative of the customer, has the right at any time to modify this information, by sending us a registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt. The data are collected, saved, used and stored for the purpose of: creating and managing the customer account, filling and monitoring orders, managing payment transactions and delivery operations, managing relations with the customer, managing communications and monitoring exchanges, market research, managing requests to access, rectify and object to processing of the personal data of the data subjects. The personal data collected will be stored for as long as required to manage and monitor the customer's order, and to manage and monitor any disputes that may arise after the order. The data processed are archived in accordance with the legal, and in particular the fiscal, commercial and accounting periods of limitation and storage. To achieve the aforementioned aims and within the limits required to pursue these aims, the data of the customer who is a natural person, or of his or her legal representative, may be transmitted to employees of our company who are authorised to process them in view of their duties. The information collected may also be transmitted to third parties linked to our company by a contract to perform subcontracted tasks needed to manage and monitor the order, manage the customer account, and manage and monitor payment transactions and delivery operations, without the authorisation of the customer who is a natural person or of his or her legal representative being required. In connection with the performance of their services, the third parties only have limited access to the data, and have a contractual obligation to use them in compliance with the applicable legislation regarding the protection of personal data. Furthermore, other recipients may have access to all or part of the personal data depending on their level of authorisation and the required purpose, i.e. in particular the police and the judicial authorities. In accordance with the applicable laws and regulations, and in particular the Law No. 78-17 of 6 January 1978 as amended, concerning Data Processing, Data Files and Individual Liberties, and Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of 27 April 2016, the customer who is a natural person or his or her legal representative has the rights of access, rectification, portability and erasure of their data (unless they are necessary for performance of the contract, or to comply with the legal obligations of our company or establish or exercise the rights of our company) as well as to limit processing and the right to give directives concerning the fate of their data after their death. He or she can also, on legitimate grounds, oppose the processing of their data and have the right to object to canvassing, in particular for commercial purposes. These rights can be exercised by contacting our company as follows: by letter sent to the address of our head office indicated in our general terms and conditions of sale. The request must be accompanied by proof of identity. It is also possible for the customer who is a natural person or his or her legal representative to make a complaint to the French Data Protection Authority (CNIL).
3. Frustration of purpose In the event of frustration of purpose as defined by Article 1307-5 of the French Civil Code, the Parties undertake to attempt to renegotiate the contract in good faith. The Parties undertake not to refuse to negotiate. This concerns the following events in particular: variation in the price of raw materials, change in customs duty, change in the exchange rates, change in legislation.
Contrary to the provisions of Article 1307-5 of the French Civil Code, if the renegotiation is unsuccessful, the Parties will agree to cancel the contract amicably. If they fail to reach an agreement, one month after the first Party to act has sent a registered letter to the other Party noting the disagreement, the Party injured by the change of circumstances may terminate the contract.
4. Prices The prices are based on the economic conditions prevailing at the date of the offer and are confirmed at the time of acceptance of the final order. The prices are net, excluding taxes and all additional fees (carriage, delivery charges, fixed billing costs, special inspections, etc.). For orders from countries other than Metropolitan France, the customer is the importer of the product(s) concerned. For all products shipped outside the European Union and the French overseas departments and territories, the price will be automatically calculated exclusive of tax. Customs duty and other local taxes, import duties or central government taxes may be due. These fees and amounts are not our responsibility. They are payable by the customer and the customer is fully responsible for them, both in terms of declarations and of payments to the authorities and competent bodies in the customer's country. Customers must ask for information on these matters from their local authorities. We reserve the right to modify our prices at any time, and the products will be invoiced based on the rate in force when the order is placed. The customer is responsible for paying the telecommunications charges incurred to access the internet and use the Website, as well as to call the numbers indicated in these General Terms of Sale.
5. Order 5.1. Products All goods listed on the Website can be immediately ordered, subject to availability. The availability of products indicated on the fact sheet is provided for information only and not guaranteed; the actual availability is indicated in the order confirmation. 5.2. Documents All the information relating to general characteristics, strengths, uses or applications of the products, all information on the standards, quality, dimensions, pricing or of any other nature, all drawings, information generally contained in our catalogues, CD ROMs, websites, delivery notes, order confirmation or any other media are for information purposes only, non-exhaustive and without guarantee by us, except in the case of an express acceptance clause. In particular, the information contained in the descriptions or catalogues may vary according to the tolerances allowed by the profession and the standards applicable. It cannot be invoked as grounds to refuse or dispute the delivery of the products. In addition information provided may contain typographical, printing or any other kind of error. Inclusion of the information from our documents in the customers' own documents, or those of any other physical person or legal entity, is their own responsibility. If Customers wish to make contractual use of specific information, they must submit us a written request and receive our written acceptance before any use thereof. All the information provided and all the products sold are subject to change, substitution or discontinuation without notice and without incurring liability.
5.3. Weights and quantities The weights and quantities indicated on the Website are provided for information purposes only and cannot be invoked to refuse or challenge the delivery of products. In accordance with the tolerances allowed in the trade, the weights and quantities delivered may vary upwards or downwards by 5% compared with the weights and quantities ordered for products on the Website, and upwards or downwards by 10% compared with the weights and quantities ordered for bespoke products produced specifically at the customer's request.
5.4. Placing of orders Customers place their order on the Website, from the online catalogue and using the order form provided. Customers must complete the various steps for ordering on the Website, selecting the required products. They then validate their choice by clicking on the icon "Confirm my purchases". A summary is provided of all of the products ordered so that customers can check the order breakdown and total price and correct any errors before showing their acceptance by confirming it. The customer selects the delivery method: collection by the customer, collection by a carrier of the customer's choice, or collection by a carrier of our choice, the cost of which has been notified to the customer. When confirming the contents of the order, the customer must accept these General Terms by clicking where indicated. By confirming the order, the customer is deemed to have accepted the prices and characteristics of the products bought.
5.5. Customer account Before placing an order on the Website, an electronic customer account must first be created free of charge. If the customer is not included in our customer database, before creating an electronic customer account it is necessary to ask us, by any written means, to open an account by providing the required documentary evidence. Customers undertake to provide accurate and honest information about their situation when they create their customer account. To do so, they must provide their surname, first name or corporate name, postal address, telephone number and email address, and choose a user ID (user name and password). Our computer system will then check that the user name does not already exist. The user ID is strictly confidential and must be entered by the customer for each transaction. The password can be changed online via the customer account. The password is private, confidential and non-transferable, and therefore the customer undertakes not to give it to third parties. All access to the customer account using the password is deemed to have been carried out by the customer. In any case, we cannot be held liable for fraudulent or abnormal use of the password and/or customer account. Furthermore, we reserve the right to use the customer's password solely for the purpose of technical maintenance of the Website. In this connection, we guarantee that we will keep the customer's password permanently confidential. Customers agree to take care of their user ID and must immediately notify any loss in writing, to avoid incurring liability. If customers lose or forget their password, they can click on the link "Forgot password?" and enter their email address. They will receive an email with a link to create a new password. Customers undertake to regularly check their personal data before placing any further orders, and if necessary to make any changes required online on their customer account. In particular we draw customers' attention to the need to provide a valid email address and telephone number.
5.6. Order confirmation The order becomes firm once we have confirmed acceptance of it by means of an email acknowledging receipt of the order and listing the order details. The invoice for the order placed is attached to the order confirmation email. Orders confirmed by the customer and by ourselves cannot be cancelled or modified.
6. Payment Unless otherwise provided, invoices are payable in cash at our head office on the date of shipment of the goods. Any change in the economic or financial situation of the customer may at any time cause a reduction in credit limits and a modification of the payment terms. No discount will be granted for early payment. If a time limit for payment is granted, payment will be made by truncated bill of exchange not subject to acceptance. In the event of payment by promissory note, if it is not received within 30 days from date the invoice is sent, we may issue a truncated bill of exchange not subject to acceptance, that the buyer is required to accept under the conditions provided for in Article L 511-15 of the French Commercial Code.
7. Deliveries 7.1. Method of delivery - Transfer of risks Unless otherwise agreed, delivery of the products is carried out by direct delivery either to the customer or to the carrier or contractor appointed by him or failing that selected by us, ex works from our warehouses or those of our contractors, subcontractors or suppliers. If it is not possible to deliver, or in the absence of instructions regarding the destination, the delivery is deemed to have been carried out upon notice of readiness, and the products shall then be invoiced and stored at the customer's cost and risk. Risks are transferred to the customer at the time of delivery as defined above, notwithstanding the right to reservation of ownership. Regardless of the method of transport used, by land, sea, river, air or of any other nature, even though prices have been established and the products have been shipped FOB destination, they travel at the risk of the consignee, and in the event of short delivery, delays or damage during transport, it is up to the consignee to make any justified reservations on the waybill and exercise all remedies against the carrier in accordance with Articles L 133-3 and L 133-4 of the French Commercial Code. The products are only insured at the express request and cost of the customer.
7.2. Place of Delivery The products are delivered throughout France. For delivery outside Metropolitan France, if customers wants the products to be transported by a carrier chosen by us, they must contact the customer service department at +33 4 72 85 85 85 to ask for a specific quotation. We will then notify the customer of the delivery charges as soon as possible. After approving them, the customer can continue to confirm the order.
7.3. Lead times Lead times for orders are provided for information only and are not guaranteed.
Therefore, if they are exceeded, we shall not on any account accept the cancellation of all or part of an order in progress or grant a discount on the invoice amount.
Exceeding lead times cannot on any account justify the cancellation of all or part of the sale or result in deductions, penalties, compensation or damages.
If, under exceptional circumstances, we agree to a mandatory delivery lead time, any delay in delivery can only result in penalties if this is expressly agreed in advance.
8. Supply Once the order is firm and final, the customer is committed to buy all of the products ordered, including when delivery frequencies have been agreed.
9. Transfer of ownership Transfer of ownership of the products delivered to the customer will only take place after the full payment of the principal, interest and incidental charges due, and once all other receivables due from the customer on any grounds whatsoever have been paid. Within the meaning of this clause, the remission of drafts or any other instrument giving rise to an obligation to pay shall not constitute payment. The failure of payment obligations by the customer or, in general, any event likely to cast a serious doubt on the creditworthiness of the customer will automatically entitle us to demand the return of products held by the customer. We have the right to recover the products any time from the customer, and for this purpose, we are hereby authorised, along with our employees and agents to enter the customer's premises. The products may be resold, processed or assembled before the final settlement in the normal course of our customers' business, provided that the receivables arising from the resale or processing by the customer are directly assigned to us and for as long as our invoices remain unpaid upon maturity. The right of resale, processing or assembly shall automatically terminate in the event that the customer is in default or becomes subject to receivership or liquidation procedures. The latter provision is defined as a negative obligation. Furthermore, the customer undertakes to immediately pass on to us the full identities of the subsequent buyers and any information required so that we can assert our rights.
10. Failure to pay In the event of late payment, we are entitled to suspend shipments and all amounts owed to us by the customer on any grounds whatsoever shall become immediately payable, without any legal formalities. Subject to any legal action for amounts due, any late payment or postponement of the due date shall be subject, as of right and without the necessity of a reminder, to interest on arrears calculated from the initial due date at the rate of 16%, which can never be less than three (3) times the legal interest rate. The customer can never, under any pretext whatsoever, withhold all or part of the sums due, or offset them, and therefore shall refrain from any illicit practice of automatic debits or credits. Consequently, any deductions from the invoices that we have not expressly accepted shall be considered a default and will justify the suspension of deliveries and acceleration of payment of all amounts outstanding. Moreover, in the event of late payment, the customer shall automatically be required to pay us lump-sum compensation for recovery costs of €40, in addition to the late payment penalties already provided for above. Additional expenses may be claimed on production of receipts.
11. Termination - Breach of the general terms In the event of a breach by customers of their obligations under the present General Terms or under the contract, and in particular in particular in the event of late payment, we may in particular:
- suspend all orders in progress, without prejudice to any other remedy;
- automatically terminate the order in question and all or part of the orders in progress, whether they have been delivered or are currently being delivered, and whether or not payment of them is due, without any legal formalities and without prejudice to any damages we may claim. The decision to terminate the order will be notified by registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt. We shall retain any down payments made by the customer, without prejudice to any other action that we are entitled to bring against the customer on this account. The customer must immediately return the products concerned by the cancelled contracts, failing which the customer may be compelled to do so by summary judgement.
- suspend access to the Website by the customer, or cancel the customer's account depending on the seriousness of the breach. We reserve the right to refuse any orders by a customer with whom there is any dispute.
12. Returns Return of goods will only be accepted after a complaint has been received from the customer and accepted by us in writing. The customer is informed that we only accept product returns on an exceptional basis. We reserve the right to refuse returns without having to justify our decision. If we accept a return, the goods must be returned in their original packaging or in identical packaging to the one in which they were shipped, carriage paid. The packaging must include the original bar code and batch No. of the products. Writedown: returns shall result in a minimum writedown of 20% for return to stock if the goods can be resold as is. Otherwise it will be necessary to examine the goods to determine the amount of the additional writedown for repackaging and repair of the product.
13. Hydrogen embrittlement - Oxidation - Reservations Electrolytic treatments for all materials with a hardness greater than 320 Hv can lead to embrittlement of the product owing to the presence of hydrogen. Warning: whatever the precautions taken, the presence of hydrogen, which cannot be completely eliminated, always entails a risk of delayed fracture owing to embrittlement and we cannot guarantee that this risk has been totally eliminated. It is up to the customer to determine if the use of the product requires the total elimination of such risk. In the event that such risk must be eliminated, the customer must use or recommend suitable coating and preparation methods to the end user. For all products that may be subjected to an accelerated oxidation process owing to their environment, the customer is responsible for determining the choice of product and the consequences of this choice. In any event, we shall not be liable for the oxidation of any products unless a hidden defect of the product can be demonstrated.
14. Warranty - Limitation of liability In all cases where, after examination by both parties, it is acknowledged that the products delivered do not comply with the order or have material or manufacturing defects that render them unfit for use, our warranty is limited to supplying replacement products within the limits of our supplies and without any compensation of any kind for labour costs, delays, losses incurred, in particular immaterial damage, or any other reason that may be put forward. Product replacement shall not apply in the event of normal wear and tear, damage or accidents resulting from negligence, lack of supervision or maintenance and faulty or improper use of products. It is up to the customer to provide any proof, for tracking the products in question, and of the reality of the defects or non-conformities identified. No product return shall be accepted without our prior written consent, including with regard to the delivery method. Products that are replaced must be returned to our warehouses carriage paid, and any replacement products will be made available to the customer ex works. Under penalty of forfeiture of the foregoing warranty, claims relating to products must be made by registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt at our head office. No claims will be accepted for nonconformity or apparent defects after the use of the products delivered or after a period of 8 calendar days following receipt. Consequently it is up to the receiving agent to check immediately on receipt of the products that they have no such defects. In other cases of defects in the delivered product the claim period is 8 calendar days after the discovery of the defect. Any alteration or modification of any kind (including but not limited to treatment, coating, machining, etc.) of the product delivered performed by the customer, their own customers or subcontractors, or by any other person, releases us from all liability regarding the product and the use that is made thereof. If it is shown, after examination by both parties, by the customer, their customers or subcontractors, or by any other person, that the defects or nonconformities rendering the product delivered unfit for use are not due to the alterations or modifications made, our replacement guarantee shall apply under the terms and conditions specified above. The products are not intended for use in the aeronautical, aerospace or nuclear sectors. We can only be held liable if we have made a written commitment in response to a specific written request by the customer. We are only liable for the content of the web pages that we publish. The Website may contain links to other websites. We cannot on any account be held liable for the practices or content of these websites. We solely have an obligation of best efforts regarding all of the steps involved in accessing and consulting the Website, filling in forms and placing orders. Consequently we cannot incur liability for any difficulties or damage resulting from use of the internet. In particular, we cannot incur liability for any disruption to the supply of the service, external intrusion or computer viruses.
15. Use of the products We are not obliged to provide advice to customers regarding the suitability of products for their requirements. Customers are responsible for selecting the product, taking into account and complying with all of the technical features of the product with regard to the use that will made of it according to their needs, the suitability of the product for the conditions of use and the assembly environment, and for their use and interpretation of the documents they consult, the results they obtain and the advice and actions they deduce from them. We shall under no circumstances be held liable for any of the above reasons, whether in connection with use of our information documents, an offer or an order.
16. Exemption clause - force majeure We cannot be held liable if an event outside our control prevents or delays the delivery and in particular in the event of a case of force majeure, lack of raw materials, unforeseen production difficulties, limiting or stopping of production, difficulties with subcontractors or suppliers, strikes, economic or political disruption due to events such as war, civil war or embargoes, or transport difficulties. The delivery lead times shall be extended accordingly.
If the unforeseen difficulty is permanent or lasts longer than one month, we shall be entitled to automatically terminate the contract, without any legal formalities, by registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt.
17. Applicable law and settlement of disputes These General Terms and all our sales transactions are subject to French law. IN THE EVENT OF A DISPUTE REGARDING THE INTERPRETATION OR PERFORMANCE OF THE PRESENT GENERAL TERMS OF SALE (REGARDLESS OF THE PLACE OF THE CONTRACT, DELIVERY OR PAYMENT), IT IS HEREBY AGREED THAT THE COURTS OF LYON SHALL HAVE SOLE JURISDICTION IN ALL CASES, TO THE EXCLUSION OF ALL OTHER COURTS, EVEN IN THE EVENT OF MULTIPLE DEFENDANTS OR THIRD PARTY PROCEEDINGS.
