The Professional Client acknowledges that this Contract is not concluded off-premises as defined by the French Consumer Code and that, as such, the provisions of the French Consumer Code are not applicable to him, in particular those relating to the right of withdrawal.

Provisions applicable to orders placed by a Professional Client

It is strictly forbidden for the Professional Client to resell the Products whose acquisition is governed by these Terms and Conditions. If the Professional Client wishes to become a distributor, he is invited to contact YUMAN.X at the following address: contact@yuman-x.com.

  1. PRICE

The Products are supplied at the price in force on the Website, when the order is submitted to YUMAN.X. 

Prices are indicated in euros, excluding VAT and all taxes. Any change in the applicable VAT rate will automatically be reflected in the price of the Products. If one or more taxes or contributions, in particular environmental taxes, were to be created or modified, whether upwards or downwards, this change may be passed on to the sale price of the Products.

Prices take into account any reductions that may be granted by YUMAN.X on the Website.

These prices are firm and non-revisable during their period of validity, as indicated on the Website, YUMAN.X reserves the right, outside this period of validity, to change prices at any time. The prices displayed on the Website do not take into account processing, shipping, transport and delivery costs, which are invoiced in addition, under the conditions indicated on the Website and calculated prior to placing the order.

In the event of a specific request from the Client regarding the packaging or transport conditions of the Products ordered, duly accepted in writing by YUMAN.X, the related costs will be subject to specific additional invoicing, based on a quote previously accepted by the Client.

The payment requested from the Client corresponds to the total amount of the purchase, including these costs, as well as any discounts that may be granted through "Promotional Codes".

  1. PAYMENT TERMS 

The price is payable in cash, in full on the day the order is placed by the Client, by credit card or by any other means of payment offered by YUMAN.X. 

An invoice is established by YUMAN.X and sent to the Client upon delivery of the Products ordered or by email to the address indicated at the time of the order.

In the event of a payment incident causing a delay in a Contract concluded with a Professional Client, late payment penalties will be calculated interest rate applied by the European Central Bank to its most refinancing operation in accordance with Article L. 441-10 of the French Commercial Code. Late payment penalties shall be due automatically by the Professional Client without any formality or prior formal notice, on all sums remaining unpaid on their due date and regardless of the method of payment. 

Finally, a flat-rate compensation for collection costs, in the amount of 40 euros, shall be due by right and without prior notification by the Professional Client in the event of late payment from the first day of delay.  YUMAN.X reserves the right to request additional compensation from the Client if the recovery costs actually incurred exceed this amount, upon presentation of supporting documents.

  1. delivery

Terms of delivery

Delivery means the transfer of physical possession of the Products to the Client. It is made only after confirmation of payment by YUMAN.X's bank.

Except in special cases or unavailability of one or more Products, the Products ordered will be delivered in one single delivery.

The Products ordered by the Client will be delivered to the address indicated by the Client when ordering on the Website. The Client must ensure the accuracy of the address provided to YUMAN.X when ordering. Any package returned to YUMAN.X due to an incorrect or incomplete delivery address will be reshipped at the expense of the Client.

Delays - Late delivery

YUMAN.X undertakes to use its best efforts to deliver the Products ordered as quickly as possible, it being specified that delivery times are mentioned as an indication when placing the order.

If the Products ordered have not been delivered within a reasonable period of time after the indicative delivery date, the sale concluded with a Consumer Client may be cancelled at the latter's written request under the conditions set forth in Articles L 216-2, L 216-3 and L 241-4 of the French Consumer Code. 

The sums paid by the Consumer Client will then be returned to him at the latest within fourteen (14) days following the date of termination of the Contract, to the exclusion of any compensation or deduction.

However, in accordance with article L121-19-4 of the French Consumer Code, these provisions are not applicable if the delay in delivery is due either to the Client, or to the unforeseeable and insurmountable fact of a third party, or to a case of force majeure, as defined in the article "Force Majeure".

Delivery outside Metropolitan France

In the event of an order to a country other than metropolitan France, the Client is the importer of the Product(s) concerned. 

Customs duties or other local taxes or import duties or state taxes may be payable. They shall be borne and are the sole responsibility of the Client.

Where applicable, customs formalities, as well as the related fees and taxes are the responsibility of the Client.

The Client undertakes to comply with the regulations in force regarding importation, transport and storage in the country of destination of the Products, so that neither YUMAN.X nor its partners can ever be worried or sought in the event of non-compliance with these regulations by the Client.

  1. TRANSFER OF OWNERSHIP - TRANSFER OF RISK 

Provisions applicable to Consumer Clients

The transfer of ownership of YUMAN.X's Products to the Client will be made after confirmation of the order, subject to the effective payment of the price by the Client.

Regardless of the date of the transfer of ownership of the Products, the transfer of risks of loss and deterioration relating thereto shall only take place when the Client takes physical possession of the Products. The Products therefore travel at YUMAN.X's risk.

The transfer of risks is therefore carried out after delivery, at the Client's address or at a relay point, depending on the choice made by the Client at the time of the order. The Client shall assume the costs and risks of any transport of the Products following their delivery.

By exception, in accordance with the provisions of Article L 216-4 of the French Consumer Code, if the Client wishes to use a carrier other than the one proposed by YUMAN.X, the risks of loss and deterioration relating to the Products are transferred to the Client when the carrier takes physical possession of the Products.

Provisions applicable to Professional Clients

The transfer of the risks of loss and deterioration to the Client shall be carried out upon acceptance of the order, evidencing the Parties' agreement on the item and the price, independently of the transfer of ownership, and this regardless of the date of payment and delivery of the Products. The Client shall bear the risks that the Products may suffer or cause, for any reason whatsoever, even in the event of force majeure, fortuitous event or due to the actions of a third party.

In the event of a payment incident, YUMAN.X reserves, until full payment of the price by the Client, a property right on the Products sold, allowing it to repossess the said Products.

  1. RIGHT OF WITHDRAWAL 

Terms and conditions for the right of withdrawal

It is hereby reminded that only the Consumer Client can benefit from the right of withdrawal, under the conditions specified in this Article.

Returns must be made in their complete original condition (packaging, accessories, manuals ...) allowing their remarketing in new condition, accompanied by the purchase invoice.

In the event of exercising the right of withdrawal within the aforementioned period, the price of the Product(s) purchased and the delivery costs corresponding to standard shipping shall be reimbursed.

The costs of return are borne by the Client.

Reimbursement will be made within fourteen (14) days from receipt by YUMAN.X of the notification from the Client informing him of his willingness to withdraw. However, YUMAN.X reserves the right to defer the refund until it has received the Product.
