By accepting our offers, the customer accepts the aforementioned conditions without any reservation or exception. These conditions shall rule over all of our sales. They shall prevail over any stipulation, regardless of what states the buyer’s purchase order and its general terms and conditions of purchase, or any other document emanating from it.
All orders are not binding until the customer receives an express written authorization from Vibraxtion.
Features and ratings featured in our catalogs are for reference only. These are not, under any circumstances, binding, and are liable to be modified at any time and without notice.
Unless otherwise stated, our offers are limited to a duration of one month.
Our rates exclude taxes and VAT. These can be revised at any time, and without notice.
Our rates are stated “ex works”. Shipping fees are borne by the buyer, unless we specify otherwise.
Goods shall be carried at the recipient’s own risk, whatever the shipping arrangements.
It is up to the addressee to make the necessary reserves with the carrier before they receive the goods. In addition, the receiver must confirm any discrepancies regarding the supplier’s or shipper’s bill of loading, and send us a copy of these discrepancies.
Failure to follow this procedure releases us from full responsibility.
Our goods are payable in Beynost, France. Our invoices are payable within 45 days from the end of the month in cash, check, transfers or bills of exchange unless otherwise indicated in our offer.
Failure to pay an invoice by the due date causes interests. The latter are based on the banks acceptance rate +5 points (excluding client’s taxes), and are applied from the maturity date. The debt recovery leads to an increase of 15% of the main reclaimee.
Some pieces of equipment require a deposit.
We reserve the ownership of the supplied goods until their full payment.
The presentation of a bill of exchange or any other instrument does not constitute a payment.
The buyer explicitly agrees that all risks are transfered to them upon delivery. The latter must, consequently, provide proof of insurance covering any potentially damaged goods they detain.
In the event of non-payment of the invoice by the due date – whatever the cause – we can legally demand that the goods be returned to us. This includes goods that the buyer may have exported at their own risks and expenses.
The buyer must immediately inform our company about the seizure, requisition or confiscation of equipment that should benefit a third-party. Should a creditor intervene, the buyer must also take all the safeguard measures in their power to notify our company.
As long as our right of ownership exists, no sale, seizure, rental or any other equipment provision can be undertaken without our prior written and discretionary authorization.
Returning the goods does not constitute a cancellation of the sale. We nevertheless reserve the possibility to apply the termination clause stated in our General Sales Conditions.
Any description, drawing, detail, weight and dimensions submitted with our requests, as well as the illustrations from our catalogs or any other advertising inquiry, are but approximations and thus cannot be held against us.

No product return shall be accepted without prior agreement from our company. All shipping costs are the customer’s responsibility.
At all events, our warranty is contractual. It does not substitute for the legal warranty that obliges the vendor to protect the buyer against any hidden defect or flaw that the product can present.
Besides, the contractual warranty does not entitle the buyer to any claims for damages.
