RIGHT OF WITHDRAWAL (Applicable to consumers only)

Customers who are consumers are informed that they have the right to withdraw from any distance selling contract concluded with MS EUROPE within 14 days from the day on which the consumer or a third party other than the carrier takes physical possession of the goods in question. In the case of delivery of a batch of goods, the time limit begins to run when the consumer or a third party other than the carrier takes physical possession of the last item. In the case of regular delivery of goods over a defined period of time, the period begins when the consumer or a third party other than the carrier takes physical possession of the first goods.
The procedures for exercising this right of withdrawal are detailed in article 10 of these terms and conditions.
The attention of customers who are consumers is expressly drawn to the fact that they are invited to use the withdrawal form available on our website, that they will have to bear the direct costs incurred by returning the goods and that they will lose the benefit of the right of withdrawal mentioned in the following cases:
– For products sold with a subscription: as soon as the subscription in question has been registered at the customer’s request, the product becomes clearly personalized.
– For products to be installed on a vehicle: as soon as the product has been installed on a vehicle, it becomes clearly customized for that vehicle.

2. Acceptance of terms and conditions and formation of contract
2.1. By the mere fact of ordering goods (orally, by telephone, fax or e-mail, or in any other way), accepting an offer from MSE, paying an invoice or receiving goods delivered by MSE, the Customer acknowledges having read and agreed to these general terms and conditions of sale and waives the right to invoke his own general terms and conditions.
2.2. When ordering goods, the customer commits himself to MSE in writing, by fax or e-mail. No cancellations will be accepted for orders that have already entered the production process.
2.3. In the event of a prior offer from MSE, the Contract is concluded when the Customer accepts the offer.
2.4. In the absence of a prior offer from MSE, the contract is concluded upon acceptance of the Customer’s order by MSE. This acceptance may be tacit and derive from the delivery of the goods requested. In the event of tacit acceptance, the present terms and conditions shall continue to apply.
2.5. The person placing the order is assumed to be authorized to do so. It is always jointly and severally liable for payment of the invoice relating to the order.
2.6. MSE’s website, catalogs or other advertising or promotional material do not constitute a definitive offer. The characteristics of the goods offered may be modified by MSE without notice. MSE can also stop the sale of a property.
2.7. In the case of special offers for several goods or services, ordering part of these goods or services does not entitle the customer to benefit from the special offer. The goods and/or services are then supplied at the rates in force when the order is registered.

3. Scope of general terms and conditions
3.1. These general terms and conditions of sale apply to Contracts concluded between MSE and the Customer. They are concluded as part of, and form an integral part of, the Contract between MSE and the Customer.
3.2. MSE’s general terms and conditions of service apply to service contracts.
3.3. When an order or offer is accepted for the sale of goods and the provision of services at the same time, it should be considered as resulting in two contracts: a sales contract, governed by the general terms and conditions of sale, and a service contract, governed by the general terms and conditions of service. If this approach proves impossible, with the result that there is only one contract with both sales and service aspects, then the general terms and conditions of sale will apply to the sales aspects and the general terms and conditions of service to the service aspects. In the event of doubt as to whether any aspect of such a contract is a sale or a service, the application of the general conditions of service will be preferred.
3.4. These GTC exclude the application of any conditions mentioned in documents issued by the Customer and/or third parties, even if these documents are dated later.
3.5. The parties may have agreed special conditions in writing. In the event of any contradiction between these GTC and such special conditions, the special conditions shall prevail.
3.6. The fact that MSE does not avail itself at a given time of the present general conditions and/or of a breach by the other party can in no way be interpreted as a waiver of the right to avail itself of them at a later date.

4. Rates
4.1. The prices expressed in MSE’s offers, in its catalog and on its website are in euros excluding VAT (except on the store intended for the consumer where the prices are indicated inclusive of VAT (21%), where applicable with Recupel, Bebat and other environmental taxes, unless otherwise stated).
4.2. Prices do not include shipping and/or delivery costs or other administrative charges. We inform you of the details of these costs on our website (where the price of transport is displayed in the shopping basket as soon as the delivery address is entered) or, if necessary, on request.
4.3. MSE reserves the right to contact the customer with a view to revising the price if the price of one of the components or materials involved in the goods ordered has risen significantly between the date of the order and the date on which the product is ready to be delivered to the customer or to the carrier. A significant increase means a variation of at least 5% in the price of the component in question. In this case, either the parties will agree on a new price, or MSE may refuse to sell the property at the initial price, with the consequence that the sales contract that would have been concluded will be considered automatically terminated, without the intervention of the Judge and without any compensation being due on either side.
4.4. It may happen that the price mentioned as an indication, on the website or in other communications from MSE, is incorrect as a result of an error. If this is the case, MSE may decide to contact you with the correct price in order to correct the error and refuse to sell you the property at the incorrect price, without any compensation being due on either side.
4.5. Promotions and special offers are only valid while stocks last.
4.6. In the event that MSE incurs expenses, it will inform the customer and provide him with the supporting documents and the corresponding invoice on request. The customer may then pay the amounts due in euros.
4.7. The methods of payment accepted by MSE are those offered by the online store and vary according to the customer’s profile. Additional charges may apply to certain payment methods. If this is the case, it will be indicated during the payment process.
4.8. MSE may refuse orders or reservations, in particular, in the following cases:
– there is a suspicion of bad faith or intent to defraud;
– there is a suspicion of abuse of the right of withdrawal;
– there are suspicions of abuse or fraud on the part of a Customer
– the data provided by the Customer appears to be incorrect, suspicious or false;
– an abnormal quantity seems to have been ordered – possibly in several purchase orders
– there is a case of force majeure as defined in article 9.1

5.3. Invoices must be contested by registered mail within 8 days of dispatch. In the absence of any dispute within this period, the invoice will be deemed tacitly accepted by the Customer.

5.5. Total or partial non-payment on the due date of any sum due under the contract will, without prior formal notice and without prejudice to the possible application of article 14, result in the suspension of the delivery of goods to the Customer.

This interest will be calculated on a month-to-month basis from the due date, with each month commenced being considered a full month.
5.7. MSE reserves, until full payment of the sums due by the Customer, in principal and accessories, costs and taxes included, a full and complete right of ownership on the goods delivered (including computer applications or programs), allowing it to repossess these goods, and this whatever the date of delivery, it being understood that the risk of loss, theft or damage to the goods is transferred to the Customer as soon as the good ceases to be in the possession of MSE.
5.8. The Customer undertakes to comply with all applicable laws and regulations, in particular those relating to information technology.

6. Delivery
6.1. Delivery times apply from the date of availability at MSE’s premises and are given for information only.

6.2. Any customs duties or local taxes are the exclusive responsibility of the Customer, unless expressly stated otherwise.
6.3. Transport, by whatever means, is carried out at the risk and peril of the consignee, who must, before taking delivery of the goods, ensure that there is no damage or shortage, and if necessary, notify the carrier in writing of any reservations, who is solely responsible.

In particular, the Customer shall refrain from communicating Confidential Information to third parties in any way whatsoever, except :
– to the extent that such disclosure is necessary for the performance of its obligations under the Agreement and provided that such third parties agree to be bound by confidentiality obligations equal in scope to those contained in the TOS for all Confidential Information so disclosed; or

He is liable only in the event of gross negligence or fraud.
The products sold correspond to specific standards and should therefore in principle be compatible with vehicles. Consequently, in the event of a problem encountered by the vehicle after the installation of one of our products, it will be up to the customer to demonstrate that this problem does not stem from a cause other than our product, by contacting us if necessary to determine with us whether recourse to an amicable contradictory expertise is useful in his case.
8.2. Without prejudice to the right of withdrawal provided to consumers within the limits set out in article 10 hereof, for any claim, the customer must notify MSE by registered mail within 8 days of the goods leaving our logistics center, and put MSE in a position to make any useful observation. Acceptance of the products will be irrevocably presumed to have been tacitly given by the Customer at the end of this period.
8.3. Any compensation payable by MSE in the event of its liability being incurred shall be limited to direct, personal and certain loss, to the express exclusion of any indirect loss. Under no circumstances may MSE be held liable for indirect damages, i.e. all those which do not result directly and exclusively from the fact or defect giving rise to liability, such as, in particular, commercial prejudice, loss of earnings, loss of sales, loss of orders, damage to brand image, commercial disturbance of any kind.
8.4. Under no circumstances shall any compensation owed by MSE exceed the sums paid by the customer for the product for which MSE is liable, up to the amount invoiced for the defective goods.

It is the customer’s responsibility to find out whether such a network exists in the territory where he or she wishes to use the product in question. In case of doubt, please contact MSE. Furthermore, MSE shall not be liable to the Customer for any damage resulting from the introduction of a computer virus affecting the correct operation of the product, from the migration of the application to a different hardware or software environment, or from modifications made to the software components of the product by anyone other than MSE, interruption of product operation or defect due to the non-functioning of the telephone or Internet network, incorrect installation of equipment, legal provisions restricting the service or the use made of it by the customer, force majeure as defined in article 9 or fortuitous events such as the actions of third parties. MSE declines all responsibility if a good or product delivered does not comply with the legislation of the country of delivery.
8.6. Without prejudice to what is stated below concerning the warranty and in article 10 concerning the right of withdrawal, this contract includes the stipulation referred to in article 1643 of the French Civil Code, according to which MSE, in its capacity as seller, will not be bound by the warranty for hidden defects of which it was unaware.
8.7. With the exception of the lifetime warranty provided for in point 8.7.4, MSE, as a reseller, does not itself guarantee the products sold, but assumes, as an intermediary for the manufacturers, the warranty against defects in conformity of the goods sold. The warranty periods are as follows:

– defects caused by external causes after the product has been delivered to you.
8.9. Within the scope of the warranty, MSE, as a dealer, will use its best efforts to ensure that a defective product is repaired as soon as possible or – if repair is not possible – replaced, after examination of the product in question.

If, after this initial contact, we conclude that a warranty replacement is necessary, we will provide you with a warranty return form and address so that you can return the product to us.

They must be duly accompanied by the customer’s proof of purchase (sales invoice).

9.2. MSE shall not be liable for the total or partial non-performance, or the total or partial suspension of performance, of any of its obligations if it proves that the burden of performance of this obligation is aggravated by the occurrence of an unforeseeable event beyond its control, which it could not reasonably have been expected to take into consideration at the time the contract was concluded.
9.3. Quantities ready for delivery at the time of the occurrence of a case of force majeure within the meaning of article 9.1 or an unforeseeable event within the meaning of article 9.2 must be accepted by the Customer.
