The purpose of these conditions of sale is to define the contractual relationship between FRUITOFOOD. and the purchaser and the conditions applicable to all purchases made through the FRUITOFOOD. website, whether the purchaser is a professional or a consumer. The acquisition of a good through this site implies unreserved acceptance by the buyer of these conditions of sale.

These conditions shall prevail over any other general or special conditions not expressly approved by FRUITOFOOD. FRUITOFOOD. reserves the right to modify its conditions of sale at any time, in which case the conditions applicable will be those in force at the date of the order by the buyer.

Application of the general terms and conditions of sale - Enforceability of the general terms and conditions of sale

These general terms and conditions of sale (GTCS) are systematically sent or given to each professional purchaser to enable them to place an order.

Consequently, placing an order implies the buyer's full and unreserved acceptance of these GSC, to the exclusion of all other documents such as prospectuses and catalogues issued by the seller, which are for information purposes only. Unless formally accepted in writing by the seller, no special conditions may prevail over the GTCS. In the absence of express acceptance, any condition to the contrary imposed by the buyer will therefore be unenforceable against the seller, regardless of when it may have been brought to the seller's attention.

The fact that the seller does not invoke any of these GTC at a given time may not be interpreted as a waiver of the right to invoke any of the said conditions at a later date.

All the data supplied and the recorded confirmation will be deemed proof of the transaction. Confirmation will be considered as signature and acceptance of the operations carried out.

The seller will inform the buyer in good time of the cases and events listed above.

In the event of an apparent defect or non-conformity of the products delivered, duly noted by the seller on site, the buyer may obtain a free replacement or reimbursement of the products, at the seller's discretion, to the exclusion of any compensation or damages.
