Any change or cancellation will only be accepted within 24 hours of receipt of the order form on a commercial letterhead.

These may be revised depending on changes to official indices and raw material prices.
4 – Delay
The delivery times indicated in our order confirmations do not take into account elements beyond our control. However, we will undertake all necessary means to respect them. Any possible delays will not cause cancellation of the sale, rejection of the order or claims for damages.

While our products are insured at their true real value by us on your behalf, it is imperative that the condition of the goods be checked upon receipt in the presence of the carrier, in order to determine any reservations* with the latter if necessary. These reservations will be noted on the delivery note within 48 hours, by registered letter with acknowledgment of receipt and a copy of the reservations letter sent to us within the same period*. NB: the note “subject to unpacking” is never taken into account by insurance companies.
