Any order implies unconditional and unreserved acceptance of the general terms and conditions of sale in force on the date of the order placed by the Customer. These general terms and conditions of sale prevail over any other document of the Customer, and in particular over any general terms and conditions of purchase, unless otherwise expressly agreed in writing by INVICTA GROUP.
Subject to this reservation, any contrary condition opposed by the Customer shall therefore be unenforceable against INVICTA GROUP.
INVICTA GROUP reserves the right to modify its general terms and conditions of sale at any time.
These contractual provisions are applicable to any professional buyer established in the territories in which the Products are marketed by INVICTA GROUP.
By Product(s), we mean all INVICTA GROUP products, namely heating appliances, barbecues, planchas, furniture and culinary products marketed under the INVICTA brand, including culinary products from the HUNTER range, LAUDEL heating appliances as well as heating appliances marketed under the DEVILLE brand.
The information contained in any other document, in particular catalogues, prospectuses, advertisements, notices and scales, is only indicative and non-contractual. INVICTA GROUP reserves the right to modify it at any time and without notice, due to technical and/or economic developments.
2.1 An order may only relate to a Product offered in the catalogues in force on the date of the order.
An order can be placed electronically, by post or by fax. Any order placed with INVICTA GROUP is binding on the Customer.
An acknowledgement of receipt may be sent by INVICTA GROUP. This acknowledgement of receipt does not constitute validation of the order.
An order is only final with respect to INVICTA GROUP after its express agreement and full payment in cash on a pro forma invoice.
To be validly taken into consideration by INVICTA GROUP, the order must specify, at a minimum, the quantity, brand and references of the Product(s) ordered as well as the price indicated on the catalogues in force or the price agreed according to a specific written agreement and the place of delivery.
The order may not contain any conditions contrary to these general terms and conditions of sale, unless INVICTA GROUP has given its prior written agreement.
An estimate given to the Customer does not constitute acceptance of the order and is valid for a period of one (1) month, at the end of which it will lapse.
2.2 INVICTA GROUP reserves the right to refuse any order for legitimate reasons and more particularly in the event that the quantities ordered are abnormally high compared to the quantities usually ordered by the Customer.
INVICTA GROUP may refuse to execute an order if the Customer is deemed insolvent or if INVICTA GROUP has experienced a payment incident with the Customer in the past.
The benefit of the order is personal to the Customer and cannot be transferred without the prior written consent of INVICTA GROUP. The order is neither assignable nor transferable by the Customer to any third party whatsoever.
2.3 In the event of difficulties in the supply of raw materials and, a fortiori, in the event of a shortage, INVICTA GROUP will respond to orders according to availability.
Products are offered for sale and delivered within the limits of available stocks. INVICTA GROUP may also decide to permanently stop the marketing of a product. In the event of temporary unavailability of the Product ordered, INVICTA GROUP will inform the Customer and may, in the event of definitive unavailability, offer a Product of equivalent quality and price or, failing that, a credit note for the amount of the deposit or the price received against a future purchase, excluding any refund. With the exception of the reimbursement of sums paid, INVICTA GROUP is not liable for any cancellation compensation.
3.1 Any modification or cancellation of an order must be requested electronically, by post or by fax, and be subject to INVICTA GROUP's express prior written agreement.
Failing this, any modification or cancellation of an order by the Customer will be deprived of any effect and the entire price will remain due.
In the event of a modification of the order by the Customer accepted by INVICTA GROUP, the latter will be released from the agreed deadlines for its execution.
3.2 In the case of custom-made products, the modification request may only be taken into consideration if it has been received by INVICTA GROUP in writing before the Product ordered from the factory is put into production.
In any case, such a request remains subject to the prior written consent of INVICTA GROUP. In the event of acceptance on its part, INVICTA GROUP will be released from the initially agreed deadlines.
3.3 In the event of cancellation of the order accepted by INVICTA GROUP, the latter shall be entitled to keep the amount of the deposit or the price paid.
4.1 Prices and accessories:
The prices are fixed by the price list in force on the day of the order. Prices are established ex works (Incoterm 2010). Transport, transport insurance, customs or any other taxes and duties, all ancillary expenses, in force at the time of payment, shall be invoiced in addition to the price, such direct or indirect costs, duties, taxes or expenses being borne by the Customer. Prices are in Euros excluding VAT, unless otherwise specified, and taxes are invoiced and due in addition at the rate in force at the time of payment.
The prices communicated by INVICTA GROUP are firm and final on the date of the order and are guaranteed until the day of delivery. If the delivery has not been made within the specified period, the price guarantee will be extended until the effective date of delivery, unless the delay is attributable to the Customer.
INVICTA GROUP may revise the prices at any time, after prior notification to Customers. Any price change will be automatically applicable on the date indicated on the new price list.
If the Customer requests the postponement of the delivery of the Product ordered beyond the indicated date, INVICTA GROUP reserves the right to charge storage costs, it being specified that the postponement of delivery may not exceed thirty (30) days.
4.2 Price change:
The prices of the Products are established under the economic conditions known at the date of their publication. If, as a result of economic or commercial circumstances of any kind, the conditions of execution of the order are modified to such an extent that it is detrimental to INVICTA GROUP, the financial conditions will be revised at INVICTA GROUP's initiative in order to remedy this inequitable effect. In the event of disagreement on the amount of this revision, the sales contract concluded by INVICTA GROUP and the Customer may be terminated at the discretion of INVICTA GROUP or the Customer, without compensation on either side, by notification by registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt. However, all costs already incurred by INVICTA GROUP shall remain payable by the Customer.
4.3 Payment terms:
Payment will be made in Euros and in cash before delivery, on presentation of a pro forma invoice. Only the actual collection will be considered as full payment within the meaning of these general terms and conditions of sale. Any advance payment does not give right to any reduction or discount. Invoices are payable at INVICTA GROUP's Head Office.
In the event of non-payment, in whole or in part, INVICTA GROUP reserves the right either to request the execution of the sale and payment of the price if necessary under court order, it being specified that any amount due by the Customer to INVICTA GROUP will bear interest from the due date at the legal interest rate plus 10 points, or to cancel the sale, by registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt with, if applicable, return of the Product and to keep any amount paid as compensation.
In accordance with Article L441-6 of the Commercial Code, any late payment gives rise, in addition to late payment penalties, to the payment of a fixed compensation of 40 Euros for recovery costs. When the recovery costs incurred exceed the amount of this fixed compensation, INVICTA GROUP may request additional compensation, upon justification.
In the event of multiple instalments, failure to pay one of the instalments results, when INVICTA GROUP does not opt to cancel the sale with retention, as compensation, of the instalments paid, in the immediate payment of subsequent instalments.
In the event of non-payment of all or part of the price by the Customer, all INVICTA GROUP's claims on the Customer will become immediately due as from the due date of the unpaid invoice.
INVICTA GROUP reserves the right at any time to set an outstanding amount, adapt payment deadlines or even deliver on a pro forma basis in the event of a payment incident or in the event of poor financial information.
A dispute does not exempt the Customer from paying INVICTA GROUP's invoice.
The transfer of ownership will only take place after full payment of the price. The Product delivered and invoiced remains the property of INVICTA GROUP until it is paid in full. Payment means the actual collection of the price, the delivery of a bill of exchange or any other title creating an obligation to pay does not constitute payment. It is nevertheless expressly stated that the Customer shall be liable for the Product as soon as it is physically delivered to it or handed over to the carrier, if applicable. The transfer of possession results in the transfer of risks. The Customer shall refrain, before full payment of the price, from reselling or pledging any Product unless INVICTA GROUP has given its prior written consent
The Customer is liable for any loss, damage, theft and/or depreciation that may occur to the Product sold, for any reason whatsoever, before full payment of the price. Consequently, the Customer undertakes to take out a policy covering the above risks with a reputable insurance company. In the event of a claim or cancellation, any dismantling and repair costs will be borne by the Customer.
INVICTA GROUP may exercise its rights under this clause for any of its claims on any of its Products in the Customer's possession, which are conventionally deemed to be those which are unpaid, and INVICTA GROUP may take them back or claim them in consideration of any unpaid invoice, without prejudice to its right to cancel any other current order, with retention, as compensation, of any deposit paid.
INVICTA GROUP may unilaterally, after sending a formal notice, draw up or have drawn up an inventory of its Products in the Customer's possession, who undertakes to allow free access to its warehouses, stores, homes or any other place where the Products are deposited for this purpose, ensuring that the identification of INVICTA GROUP's Products is always possible.
This clause is enforceable against any third party as well as in the event of the Customer's receivership or judicial liquidation.
6.1 For Customers established in France, delivery is made by delivery of the Product by a shipper or a carrier, to the address indicated on the order form.
In the absence of an address indicated on the order form or in the event of an undisclosed address, the Product(s) are stored on INVICTA GROUP's premises at the Customer's expense and risk. In the event of an incorrect address, the Product(s) are stored on the carrier's premises. INVICTA GROUP reserves the right to invoice the Product(s) on the initial delivery date and the storage costs (its own or those of the carrier) on the actual delivery date.
6.2 In the event of non-payment in full of an invoice that is due, INVICTA GROUP reserves the right to suspend any other current and/or future deliveries.
6.3 As delivery times are given as an indication, exceeding the time limit may under no circumstances result in the cancellation of the order or in the payment of any compensation or penalty, whatever its nature.
6.4 Without prejudice to the measures to be taken by the Customer with regard to the carrier as described in Articles 7.1.2, 7.1.2, 7.1.3 and 7.1.5, in the event of an apparent defect or missing item, any complaint, whatever its nature, relating to the products delivered will only be accepted by INVICTA GROUP if it is made in writing, by registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt, within a period of 3 days.
7.1 Provisions applicable to Customers residing within the European Union
7.1.1 In accordance with Article 4.1, transport costs shall be invoiced in addition to the price of the Product ordered by the Customer (unless otherwise agreed in writing).

7.1.3 In the event of delivery by a shipper or a carrier, the Product is delivered exclusively to the entrance of the premises of the address indicated on the order form, on the public road, on the edge of the property or rental. The Customer is responsible for transporting the Product to the desired location, as the Product is not delivered inside the accommodation or any other premises. The transfer or risks takes place ex works. The Product delivered to the Customer by a carrier chosen by INVICTA travels at the Customer's risk.
7.1.4 Storage of the Product on the carrier's delivery platform awaiting delivery to the Customer shall be at the Customer's expense and risk.
7.1.5 It is the Customer's responsibility, in the event of damage to the delivered Product or missing items, to make all necessary reservations with the carrier. Any product that has not been the subject of a precise reservation on the nature of the damage and/or the quantity, by registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt within 3 days of receipt from the carrier, in accordance with Article L.133-3 of the Commercial Code, a copy of which will be sent simultaneously to INVICTA GROUP, will be considered accepted by the Customer.
7.2 Provisions applicable to Customers residing outside the European Union
7.2.1 For Customers established outside the European Union, the terms of delivery are understood by reference to the INCOTERMS 2010 - EXW of the International Chamber of Commerce. Consequently, INVICTA GROUP's sole responsibility is to make the goods available to the Customer at its premises in packaging suitable for transport. INVICTA GROUP is not responsible for loading the goods on the vehicle provided by the Customer, unless otherwise agreed. The Customer shall bear all costs and risks inherent in transport from the factory to the place of destination; it also carries out the export formalities. The cost of these export formalities is borne by the Customer.
7.2.2 INVICTA GROUP insures the Products against transport risks only at the express request of the Customer, a request that INVICTA GROUP reserves the right to accept or refuse, without having to justify itself.
When INVICTA GROUP takes out the insurance directly, any claims of the Customer may only be taken into consideration if the Customer has provided proof that it has completed the insurance formalities that may have been incumbent on it.
8.1 All complaints must be made to INVICTA GROUP's After-Sales Service by email, post or fax. It is the Customer's responsibility to provide any justification as to the reality of the non-conformity, hidden defect or alleged anomaly. It must give INVICTA GROUP every facility to establish the complaint and to remedy it, if necessary. An INVICTA GROUP sales representative or technician may be required to visit the site to carry out an appraisal. In the meantime, the Customer shall refrain from intervening itself or having a third party intervene for this purpose.
8.2 No Product returns will be accepted without the prior written agreement of INVICTA GROUP. Any Product returned without this agreement will be held at the Customer's disposal and returned, at its expense, after one month. The costs, storage and risks of the return are always the responsibility of the Customer, it being specified that the returned product will be reshipped carriage paid. Products covered by the warranties must be returned new, complete and in their original condition and packaging after receipt and confirmation of INVICTA GROUP's agreement by its after-sales service. The returned Product will be accompanied by a return form to be attached to the package and must be in the condition in which INVICTA GROUP delivered it.

10.1.3 Transfer of the warranty
The warranty is linked to the Product sold by INVICTA GROUP, it is automatically acquired by any new owner for the remaining duration.
10.1.4 Price of the guarantee
The commercial guarantee as defined above does not entail any payment by the consumer.
INVICTA GROUP's liability towards the professional customer is limited to the conditions of the legal guarantee, the burden of proof of which lies with the customer. However, under no circumstances shall INVICTA GROUP be held liable for any direct or indirect damage that the Customer may suffer. In addition and in any event, any damages due by INVICTA GROUP may never exceed 10% of the sale price by INVICTA GROUP.
12.1 INVICTA GROUP cannot be held liable when the delay in delivery or performance of services is due to a case of force majeure as usually retained by French case law, or a fortuitous event. Force majeure or fortuitous events are considered to be events beyond the control of the parties, which they could not reasonably be expected to foresee, and which they could not reasonably avoid or overcome, to the extent that their occurrence makes it totally impossible for them to perform their obligations.
In particular, the following are considered to be force majeure or fortuitous events relieving INVICTA GROUP of its obligations:
strikes by all or part of the staff of INVICTA GROUP or its usual carriers or any manufacturer of products marketed by INVICTA GROUP, lockouts, fires, floods, bad weather, war, production stoppages due to accidental breakdowns, inability to be supplied with raw materials, epidemics, thaw barriers, roadblocks, strikes or disruption of energy supply, or disruption of supply for a reason not attributable to INVICTA GROUP, as well as any other cause of disruption of supply attributable to its suppliers.
12.2 Initially, any case of force majeure shall suspend the performance of the contract; it shall be notified by registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt. In all cases, the contractual period will automatically be extended by the impact of the delay.
If the force majeure event lasts for more than one month, this contract may be terminated at the discretion of INVICTA GROUP or the Customer, without compensation on either side, by notification by registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt. However, the cost of all the work already undertaken by INVICTA GROUP will be due by the Customer.
13.1 In the event of non-performance of one of its obligations by a party, the sales contract concluded between INVICTA GROUP and the Customer shall be automatically terminated in favour of the other party without prejudice to any damages that may be claimed from the defaulting party, 15 days after sending a registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt notifying the breach in question. This period does not apply in the event of non-payment, in whole or in part, in which case INVICTA GROUP may immediately terminate the contract, without prejudice to the recovery of its entire claim and any damages.
13.2 In all cases of non-performance of one of its obligations by the Customer, any amount paid shall be retained by INVICTA GROUP as compensation.
14.1 All drawings, plans, diagrams and in general any element relating to the design, construction as well as all technical or commercial information provided in connection with an offer or order remain the property of INVICTA GROUP, the sole owner of the industrial and/or intellectual property rights on these elements, and may not be reproduced or communicated to third parties without the prior written consent of INVICTA GROUP.
14.2 The Customer undertakes not to make any use of the elements referred to in Article 14.1 likely to infringe INVICTA GROUP's rights.
14.3 The sale of a Product by INVICTA GROUP does not give the Customer any right to the trademarks or other distinctive signs of INVICTA GROUP other than that of a use strictly necessary and reserved for the sale of the product by the Customer.
Unless otherwise specified, the personal data collected is mandatory for the processing of the order and its follow-up. It is processed by INVICTA GROUP for purposes such as customer management and commercial prospecting. The Customer has a right of access and rectification on the data concerning him as well as the right to object, for legitimate reasons, to the processing of such data; the Customer may exercise these rights by contacting INVICTA GROUP; any request must be accompanied by a double-sided copy of an identity document.
16.1 The fact that INVICTA GROUP does not require at any time the strict application of one or more clauses of these general terms and conditions of sale may never be interpreted as a waiver of its right to avail itself of them in the future or as a waiver of another clause or of all the general terms and conditions of sale.
16.2 The nullity of a contractual clause does not entail the nullity of the general terms and conditions of sale.
16.3 These general terms and conditions are written in French, which will prevail over any other version that may be written in a foreign language.
17.1 This contract is governed by French law. The application of the 1980 Vienna Convention is expressly excluded.
17.2 In the event of a dispute, the Court within the jurisdiction of which INVICTA GROUP's registered office is located shall have sole jurisdiction, even in the event of multiple defendants or warranty claims, including summary proceedings.
