The internet user accepts the general terms and conditions by checking the box against the following sentence:  I hereby acknowledge that I have read and accept in full the website general terms and conditions.

DEFINITIONS

For the proper understanding and interpretation of the current general conditions of use, the terms used in this document are defined as follows:

Website: www.minialuxe.fr

Profil:  website interface that provides members with access to shared documents on the website.

Member of the MINIALUXE collectors’ community:  any person having created a profile on the website, as specified in the current general terms and conditions of use.

MINIALUXE Services:   all services accessible on the website:  Profile, presentation of models in the collection, support module between members of the MINIALUXE community, small ads and any other service that it is developed and made available to members thereafter.
Model car collection: 
any scale model car for collectors over the age of 14.

MINIALUXE:  company which administers the website.

The above definitions apply both to the current general terms and conditions of use as well as the general terms and conditions of sale for each paid subscription.

 

ACCEPTANCE OF THE GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE 

The member of the community declares that he (she) accepts all articles contained in the general terms and conditions of use.

Subject

The current Contract define the rights and obligations of the parties under the scope of the sharing of documents that are provided on-line.

 

EFFECTIVE DATE AND DURATION

The current terms and conditions as well as any amendments shall take effect on the date that registration is validated and shall remain in effect until the member of the MINIALUXE community closes his account.

They shall also be applied after the closure of an account in the case of any subsequent complaints that may arise but originate during the time the internet user was a member of the MINIALUXE community.

 

PERSONAL SPACE

The creation of a personal space is a prerequisite for the use of services offered to the member on the MINIALUXE website and for his (her) contribution to site content.

To this end, the member will be invited to provide a certain amount of personal data.  The member is committed to providing exact data. Should the data provided be inexact, the member runs the risk of having his contract rescinded and his customer account deleted.

Certain information is necessary for the use of services offered by the current website. The collection of this data is essential to create a customer account and validate the conclusion of the contract.  The refusal by a member to provide such information will prevent the creation of a personal space as well as, incidentally, the use of services offered on the current website.

The personal space enables the member to consult information that he(she) has provided during his registration and manage the information that may be viewed by other members on the public space of the website.

If the personal space or data contained in it, happens to disappear due to exceptional circumstances, technical breakdown or a case of force majeure, the site and its editor cannot be held responsible, the given information having no conclusive value but for reference only.

When creating his (her) personal space, the user authenticates himself by using Facebook, LinkedIn or Viadeo applications.  This authentication guarantees the confidentiality of data contained in his (her) personal space.  MINIALUXE cannot be held responsible for any unauthorized transmission or communication of authentication settings to a third party by Facebook, Linkedin, Viadeo or the user himself.

MINIALUXE reserves the exclusive right to delete the account of any member in breach of the general terms and conditions (notably but not limited to the member deliberately provided inexact information at the time of registration and creation of his (her) personal space or the selling of scale model cars violating laws or the current terms and conditions of use) and to delete a customer account that has been inactive for over one year. Such removal shall not constitute damage to the excluded member who shall not be entitled to claim compensation in this respect.    

This exclusion does not exempt MINIALUXE from taking legal action against the member when justified.

 

PRODUCT INFORMATION

In conformity with Article L.111-1 of the Consumers Code, you will find on the MINIALUXE website a product description sheet which presents all the necessary characteristics for each product on sale.

The products offered on the MINIALUXE site are in compliance with the French legislation in force but are reduced models for adult collectors.  Models are not suitable for children under the age of 14.

MINIALUXE declines all responsibility if the delivered article does not correspond to the current applicable legislation of the country of delivery. It is the client’s responsibility to check with local authorities all regulations regarding import and use of products or services the client plans to order.

 

PAYMENT

Prices may be subject to change without notice. Any order placed by the user implies acceptance of the price.  Payment is made according to the conditions provided upon ordering. In principal, all purchases are payable with the order in total and without any discount.

Payment of purchases as stipulated in the RATES / TARIFS, may be carried out by the Member of the Community using one of the following payment methods: credit card, electronic credit card, etc. Transactions are immediately debited on the user’s credit card after security checks on the latter and the credit card issuer’s permission to debit the card used by the user.

In conformity with the provisions of Article L.132-2 of the Monetary and Financial Code, a commitment to make payment using a credit card is irrevocable. By communicating his (her) above mentioned information, the customer authorizes MINIALUXE to debit his card for the total amount.

For this purpose, the holder confirms he is the holder of the bank card to be debited and that the name shown on the card is his.  The user enters the 16 digit numbers and the expiry date shown on the front of the card as well as, if necessary, the cryptogram (CVS numbers) on the back.

In the event that the debit of amounts due by the customer is impossible, the sale and order may automatically be cancelled.

Minialuxe does everything in its power to ensure the confidentiality and security of transactions.

 

SHIPPING COSTS

The cost of delivery charges including packaging and postage is at the expense of the customer. He (she) is invoiced a supplement on top of the product retail price.

The amount of the supplement is determined according to the location of delivery, the weight and volume of items to be delivered as well as delivery deadlines chosen by the customer.

 

DELIVERY

The seller is committed to respecting the date of delivery indicated on the product specifications sheet and while stocks last. For products on order, if the delay exceeds 30 days after the expected date of delivery, the buyer is entitled to cancel his (her) order providing he(she) does so by registered mail within 60 working days after the date of delivery. Down payments will be given back to the customers.  These provisions shall not apply in the case of force majeure. Delivery shall be deemed to have been performed upon handing the goods to the carrier from our warehouses.

 

WARRANTY

The seller guarantees the buyer for any flaws and hidden defects that the item sold might reveal, on condition that those flaws and defects are reported as soon as they become visible. Any aesthetic deterioration resulting from flaws or hidden defects that the buyer would not have known during delivery are covered by the guarantee, without restriction or reservation.

On the other hand, the guarantee does not apply to any deterioration resulting from wear or causes foreign to the intrinsic qualities of the goods, such as those resulting from misuse or due to the buyer when those have been executed by the buyer or a third party. In any case, the buyer will need to prove that the hidden defect existed on the day of delivery.

 

CUSTOMER SERVICE

In the event that a model is damaged during transport, a damages complaint must be made to the carrier/postal agent and forwarded to us within 8 days. Goods are controlled upon dispatch.  Goods may not be returned without our prior approval.

We sell miniature cars and not packaging. The purpose of the packaging is to protect the model during its storage and transport.  All necessary measures are taken during shipment. There is no after-sales service on the boxes, bases and Plexiglas that protect the models.

In the case of defect, the model will be exchanged or reimbursed if no longer in stock. In the case of incomplete or incorrect delivery address provided by the customer, additional postal charges shall be at his (her) expense.

When returning items, we ask you to include a description of the problem encountered.  Return of items can only be accepted in their original packaging, otherwise the warranty is invalidated.

 

RIGHT OF WITHDRAWAL

The consumer has a deadline of 7 working days from the receipt of goods to exercise his (her) right of withdrawal. Postal charges shall be at the consumer’s expense. If the 7 day deadline expires on a Saturday, Sunday, public holiday or non-working day, the deadline shall be extended until the first working day which follows.

If any condition is not met, it shall be governed by the current practices in force in distance selling for companies who have their head office registered in France.

 

LIABILITY

The client shall be held solely responsible for choice of products, storage after delivery and use. MINIALUXE is in no way responsible for any damage in this respect.

MINIALUXE guarantees that its products are in perfect condition when handed over to the carrier.

No other warranty, express or implied, is granted. In particular, MINIALUXE does not guarantee that products meet with the customer’s special expectations.

 

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS

The MINIALUXE brand name and all content that is part of the current site layout and design are the property of MINIALUXE.  Any copying of logos, textual, pictographic or video contents (list not exhaustive) is strictly prohibited and tantamount to copyright infringement.

Any member found in breach of copyright infringement may have access to his (her) account blocked without notice or compensation nor any claims to damage, and be subject to any full and further legal action that may be undertaken by MINIALUXE.

 

MISCELLANEOUS

The current terms and conditions may be modified by MINIALUXE or its authorized representative at any time.  The general terms and conditions for use in effect are those in effect on the current date or when the user connects onto the website.

MINIALUXE naturally undertakes to retaining all previous general terms and conditions and to providing a copy to any Member requesting them.

Unless otherwise provided by law, an effort shall first be made by MINIALUXE to resolve by amicable arrangement any disputes arising from the execution of the general terms and conditions. It is specifically reiterated that claims for an amicable arrangement does not suspend the time limits allowed for instituting legal proceedings.

Should any one of the provisions in the current general terms and conditions be declared by a court decision to be invalid, such invalidity shall not entail the nullity of all other clauses which continue to produce their effect.

The failure of MINIALUXE to exercise any of the rights derived from one or more provisions of the current general terms and conditions, does not constitute a renunciation to exercise the remaining provisions of the said general terms and conditions.

 

APPLICABLE LAW IN THE CASE OF LITIGATION

These terms and conditions of sale shall be governed by French law. The language applicable to these conditions shall be French. 

The rights and obligations of parties are governed by French law, and in particular the Distance Selling Regulations (Articles L.121-16 to L.121-20 of the Consumer Code which includes

Directive 97/7E of 20.05.1997 relating to consumer protection for distance contracts).

Any disputes shall therefore be subject to the competence of the Bordeaux courts (France).
