General terms of sales
The present general terms of sale ('GTS') apply in their whole with any order of products at Supreme Factory. Any order thus implies express acceptance, irrevocable and without reserve of the customer with the present GTS. The GTS prevails on any other document exchanged between the parties, in particular the customer general terms of purchase, regardless of the moment where they might have been in possession of Supreme Factory. Any particular condition derogatory or adding to the provisions of the GTS famous will only be accepted with a written agreement of Supreme Factory.
Article 1 - Price
1.1 - The prices of the articles are those applicable the day of the confirmation of order.
1.2 - The prices given on the www.supremefactory.com site are Net of tax (VAT), and do not include transportation costs. It will be up to the customer to define the configuration of its account to display prices in BRITISH POUNDS, EUROS or US DOLLARS.
1.3 - Supreme Factory reserves the right to modify the prices of the products at any given moment. The prices are subject to the variation of currencies (EUROS / US DOLLARS / GBP). Certain products are indexed on the currency EURO and other products are indexed on the US currency DOLLAR or British Sterling Pound. An automatic system updates the exchange rate every 30 minutes according to the European Central Bank rates. It is thus frequent that the price of a product in EURO or US DOLLAR varies according to the rise or fall of its currency of reference.
1.4 - The prices of the articles taken into account for the invoicing will be those at the day of the validation of the order by the customer. No change of a product price will be accepted after the creation of an order, whether the variation is positive or negative.
1.5 - Our prices do NOT include country specific custom taxes & duties, associated with the delivery of your order. These fees must be paid by the customer directly to the delivery carrier at the time of delivery.
Article 2 - Order and validation of order
2.1 - For reasons of reliability and traceability of the orders, we strongly advised the customer to validate their orders on the www.supremefactory.com site with its personal and private account.It is also possible to carry out an order by e-mail, instant messaging or fax.
- By e-mail: by sending an email to the sales manager in charge of the client's account (it is up to the customer to get information about the e-mail address of its account manager available on our Contact us page).
- By fax: by sending a copy of your order using a fax to +33-9-55-33-22-52.
- By instant messaging: by contacting via MSN/ICQ the sales manager in charge of the client's account (it is up to the customer to get information about the coordinates of instant messaging of his sales manager available on our Contact us page). The discussions are recorded in order to avoid any litigation.
2.2 - When the customer carries out the creation of an order, it will receive thereafter a Proforma summing up the articles ordered by the customer as well as the shipping cost related to the delivery of the order concerned. The customer will have to validate this Proforma after having checked all the details of it (addresses, nature of the articles, prices etc.). The validation of the Proforma is equal to a confirmation of the order and is transmitted to our shipping staff for delivery.
2.3 - The validation of the Proforma by the customer is therefore an agreement to these GTS.
2.4 - The customer can also directly requests the shipping of his order if it has a credit line approved by our credit insurance partner Euler Hermès. The request for immediate shipping is therefore an agreement to these GTS..
Article 3 - Availability
3.1 - The www.supremefactory.com site is used as the reference for the availability of the products. 6 levels of stock are defined:
1. IN STOCK = the product is in stock in our warehouse and can be immediately delivered subject to sufficient quantities in stock in the case of a large order on one or more products.
2. RESTOCKING = the product is not available and is in the course of restocking, generally under 15 days from the manufacturer/supplier.
3. DELAYED = the product is not available and the supplier did not provide a restocking date. Supreme Factory does not take orders on this product as it cannot confirm a delivery date within a reasonable delay.

6. TBA = the selling price was not yet announced (To Be Announced) and the product is not yet available.

3.3 - The indication of the inventory position of the product is thus given at the time of the creation of the order on our www.supremefactory.com site. The inventory position is directly influenced by our suppliers and by other customers and it is possible that modifications are made on the availability of a product.
