  • Action against the transporter


In the case of arrival in very frosty conditions, place the parcels, without opening them in premises with a moderate temperature that is not heated.

Freezing conditions are considered to be a case of ‘’force majeure’’, the transporter is not responsible for damaged by them except if the contractual deadline for transport has been passed.


When the transport deadline has been passed, the recipient has three days not including national holidays, to notify the following:

  • Either the service of SNCF lines
  • Of the road, marine or rail transporter, by an extrajudicial act or by registered letter of his complaint.
  • Or the postal service.

Goods always travel at the risk and peril of the buyer, even if the product are delivered free of charge and whatever the mode of transport, he is the only judge and person responsible for making claims at arrival. Without any particular instructions from the buyer, the seller will choose the method of transport that he thinks most appropriate and will not assume any responsibility for this choice, and will not accept any claims made concerning transport.


When the goods are insured, the recipient must in the case of damage, strictly observe the stipulations of the insurance policy.

  • Reservation of title

The actual transfer of ownership of commercial products by a company is suspended until the complete payment of the price by the buyer in principle and peripherally, even in the case of granting deadlines for payment. Any clause stating the opposite is deemed to be unwritten. The company could assert the right to claims that it holds under the present clause for any outstanding payments owed to it concerning goods in the possession of the buyer, these being conventionally considered to be those for which payment has not been received and the company could take them back or claim them as compensation for all the unpaid invoice without prejudice to its right of resolution of on-going sales.

The buyer refuses the grant or to yield as security the ownership of goods before their complete payment.

The buyer is authorized within the framework of his normal operation, except if hi find himself with a cessation of payment, to resell the delivered goods under the condition what he pays the seller the corresponding amount. In the case of the opening of a collective procedure against the buyer, the on-going orders will be automatically cancelled and the company reserves the right to reclaim the goods in stock. The present clause does not prevent the risks linked to the preservation of the goods to be passed to the buyer as soon as they are with the transporter. From the delivery, the buyer is considered as the depositary and guardian of the said goods. In the case of returned goods, the return transport costs remain with the buyer and the payments made remain valid as a penalty clause.
