EQUIPMENT DELIVERY TERMS 

 

ARTICLE 11 – EQUIPMENT DELIVERY 

Unless the order form specifies delivery by carrier included, the equipment ordered must be collected at the premises of LIGHT & SHADOWS. LIGHT & SHADOWS undertakes to make available or, if necessary, deliver the equipment within the period specified in the order form. This period shall not constitute a strict time limit and LIGHT & SHADOWS shall not be liable to the CLIENT in the event of a delay not exceeding thirty (30) days.  

In case of a delay exceeding this period, the CLIENT may request the cancellation of the sale. Payments already made will then be returned by LIGHT & SHADOWS with interest at the legal rate. LIGHT & SHADOWS shall under no circumstances be held liable in the event of a delay attributable to the CLIENT or in the event of force majeure.  

In the event of delivery by a carrier, it is up to the client to check the condition and number of packages on delivery. In the event of apparent damage or missing equipment, it is up to the CLIENT to issue reservations on the carrier's delivery slip. In case of the CLIENT's absence at the time of delivery, the costs of representation of the equipment by the carrier shall be borne by the CLIENT. 

It is also the CLIENT's responsibility to check whether the equipment is in proper condition upon receipt or upon removal from the premises of LIGHT & SHADOWS. The CLIENT shall have a period of forty-eight (48) hours from the receipt of the Products to issue such reservations in writing to LIGHT & SHADOWS. LIGHT & SHADOWS shall replace, as soon as possible and at its own expense, any equipment whose non-compliance has been duly proven by the CLIENT. No other claim will be validly accepted in the event of non-compliance with these formalities by the CLIENT. 

If the CLIENT is unable to have the equipment delivered when it is ready, LIGHT & SHADOWS may choose to either store them itself or to have them stored by a third party at its sole discretion. The cost of storage as well as additional insurance or handling costs will be invoiced in addition to the price of the equipment payable by the CLIENT. 

 
ARTICLE 12- RETENTION OF TITLE 

Ownership of the equipment ordered shall only be transferred to the CLIENT after full payment of the price by the latter, regardless of the delivery date of the said equipment. In the event of receipt of the equipment by the CLIENT before full payment of the price, the CLIENT is obliged to keep the said equipment in the same condition before full payment of the price. 

 

ARTICLE 13- TRANSFER OF RISKS 

Unless otherwise agreed by the Parties or stated otherwise in the order form, the risks of damage or loss of the equipment will be transferred to the CLIENT at the time of delivery. LIGHT & SHADOWS shall be deemed to have met its delivery obligation when LIGHT & SHADOWS informs the CLIENT that the equipment is ready to be taken away or, if the CLIENT decides to use a third party for transport, when LIGHT & SHADOWS hands over the equipment to the third party who accepts them without reservation. In the event that the CLIENT chooses the carrier, the CLIENT shall have no recourse against LIGHT & SHADOWS in the event of non-delivery of the equipment transported or damage during transport.  

 

ARTICLE 14- EQUIPMENT WARRANTY 

LIGHT & SHADOWS warrants the CLIENT, in accordance with the legal provisions, against any lack of compliance of the equipment and any hidden defect, resulting from a fault in the design or supply of the equipment, to the exclusion of any negligence or fault on the part of the CLIENT. LIGHT & SHADOWS may be held liable only in the event of proven fault or negligence and its liability is limited to direct damage to the exclusion of any indirect damage of any kind whatsoever. 

If, during the warranty period defined below, the CLIENT is unable to use the equipment under normal conditions of use and after having correctly followed the manufacturer's instructions, LIGHT & SHADOWS shall replace or repair such equipment subject to written notification by the CLIENT as soon as possible and after inspection by LIGHT & SHADOWS establishing the defect affecting the equipment. The said Equipment shall be returned to LIGHT & SHADOWS by the CLIENT at its own expense within two (2) months from the discovery of the suspected defect.  

Unless otherwise agreed, the warranty period for the Equipment shall be twelve (12) months from the date of delivery. The warranty period for the equipment replacing the defective equipment under warranty will be the unexpired period of the original warranty. This warranty shall not apply to accessories or consumables of the equipment supplied by LIGHT & SHADOWS, or to equipment that are samples or prototypes of products used for testing or evaluation. In this case, LIGHT & SHADOWS' sole obligation shall be to endeavor to supply equipment in accordance with the specifications and performance criteria approved by the CLIENT. Nor shall it apply when the defects reported by the CLIENT are inaccurate or incomplete, or when all or part of the equipment is supplied to LIGHT & SHADOWS by a third party designated by the CLIENT who does not have an equivalent warranty. The warranty shall not apply to Products that have been subject to repair, replacement, modification or alteration not authorized by LIGHT & SHADOWS or the equipment manufacturer. This warranty will also not apply in the event of failure to comply with the manufacturer's instructions on the use and storage of the equipment. 

In any event, in case LIGHT & SHADOWS is liable, its warranty shall be limited to the amount excluding taxes paid by the CLIENT for the supply of the Equipment.
