Transfer of risk
Notwithstanding the retention of ownership provided for in these GTCS, the Products will be deemed to be in the custody of the Customer from the date of their delivery by the Carrier. As from the delivery, the Customer therefore bears all risks the Products may suffer or cause, for any reason whatsoever, including in a force majeure event, fortuitous event, or third-party act.
If the Customer collects the Products directly from the Seller's premises, the risks will be transferred when the Products are made available by the Seller on its premises, all transport, loading and unloading operations being at the Customer's sole risk and expense.
Non-compliance with indicative delivery times
In any event, failure to respect the delivery times linked to the Carrier may not give rise to any compensation or indemnity in favour of the Customer, or withholding of payment to the detriment of the Seller, nor justify the cancellation of the order.
In the event of delay in deliveries of raw materials, defective delivery of suppliers, or any other reason beyond the Seller's control having the effect of delaying delivery by more than 30 days, the Seller reserves the right to cancel the order by notifying the Customer within 30 days of the acceptance of the order, without this cancellation giving rise to any compensation in favour of the Customer. In such cases, any down payments made will be returned.
For Products not held in stock by the Seller, (products stored at the supplier or Products in manufacture, for example), the delivery time will be specified by prior quotation, and will remain non-contractual until express acceptance of the quotation by the Customer. From the date of acceptance of the quotation, the delivery time will begin to run, and the above provisions will apply with regard to possible delays.
In the event of an order for Products for delivery outside of the European Union, the Customer may be subject to import obligations and duties. These will be collected when the package arrives at its destination. Any additional customs clearance costs will be borne by the Customer; the Seller has no control over these costs. Customs policies vary greatly from country to country, so the Customer should contact the local customs service for more information. Furthermore, in the event of an order for the Product on the website www.pro-laser.com, the Customer will be deemed to be the official importer, and must comply with all the laws and regulations of the country in which it receives the Products. The protection of privacy is important to us, and we draw the attention of our international customers to the fact that cross-border deliveries are likely to be opened and inspected by customs authorities.
The Products are provided at the applicable rate appearing on the website www.pro-laser.com when the order is registered by the Seller. Any order placed with the Seller by the Customer implies the unreserved acceptance of its prices.

As such, the print cartridges are the subject of an eco-contribution scheme, which must be used to finance collection, depollution and recycling. This amount depends on the scales communicated by the eco-organisations with which we collaborate, and is communicated to the Customer in the tariffs. The eco-contribution is included in the amount excluding taxes, and is therefore subject to VAT.
