These General Terms of Sale (hereinafter “GTS”) and any specific contractual terms indicated on the estimate constitute the sole basis of the commercial relationship between the parties, pursuant to Article L.441-1 of the Commercial Code.
Their purpose is to define the terms under which TYVA Energie supplies its products (hereinafter the “Products”) to its business customers (hereinafter “Customers”). TYVA Energie supplies its Products exclusively to private businesses, legal entities only or bodies governed by public law. TYVA Energie does not sell and does not deliver to consumers.

All orders signify unreserved adherence to these GTS, which prevail over all other terms, except for the specific contractual terms indicated on the estimate that were expressly accepted by TYVA Energie.
When placing its order, the Customer agrees to give TYVA Energie correct and up-to-date information, especially as to the delivery address. TYVA Energie reserves the right to bill additional costs to the Customer if the Customer provided incorrect information when placing its order and specifically if there is an error in the indicated delivery address, causing a redelivery by the carrier.

Any costs of tools and their procurement incurred for specialty fabrications will be payable entirely by the Customer.
To give an estimate, TYVA Energie bases its estimate on the technical information supplied by the Customer in the document entitled “Specifications” for sizes, scheduling and tests of batteries. If one or more pieces of information is found to be different or incorrect between the “Specifications” and the Customer’s technical requirement at time of delivery, TYVA Energie cannot be held liable for any malfunction of the products sold. The time and components necessary to make technical changes will be the subject of an additional estimate.
TYVA Energie reserves the right to cancel an order, even after confirmation, if the payment guarantees offered by the Customer seem insufficient, and it cannot be required to pay any compensation.

The practical terms of returning and replacing the delivered Products will be specified to the Customer in timely fashion.
The costs of taking back the defective Products and delivering the new Products will be payable exclusively by TYVA Energie.
Barring express special terms, the prices of the Products sold are those that appear in the estimate on the day of the order. Those prices are firm and final at that date. They are expressed in euros and do not include tax, delivery or packing costs. Consequently, the costs of delivery and packing, the VAT rate applicable on the date of the order according to the country where the Customer has its head office and any new tax instituted will be added to them.

6.3. Delays in Payment
If payment is not made when due, penalties equal to once and a half times the statutory interest rate in force on the date of the order will be applied as of the first day of delinquency.
However, those penalties will be payable only upon receipt of a formal notice sent by registered letter with delivery confirmation.
Pursuant to the provisions of the Commercial Code, in addition to these late penalties, any delay in payment will automatically entail an obligation for the debtor to pay flat-rate compensation of forty (€40) euros for collection charges.
Any payment that is made to TYVA Energie will be allocated toward the sums owed on any basis, starting with those that have been owed the longest.
If the price is not paid when due, TYVA Energie may automatically void the sale thirty (30) days after a formal notice has produced no effect, without prejudice to any damages that TYVA Energie may claim. Voidance of the sale is accompanied by a penalty clause as compensation consisting of payment of the sale price. TYVA Energie also reserves the right to suspend all other orders that the Customer may have in progress.
Upon receipt of the order, TYVA Energie will prepare a single-copy invoice sent to the Customer by email at the address provided at the time of the order, which the Customer expressly accepts.
The invoice will contain the information indicated in Article L. 441-9 of the Commercial Code.
