Terms of Sales
Continuum Solutions Sàrl

1. Object

Continuum Solutions is active in the areas of purchase and sale as well as the import and distribution of electronic goods, sports equipment, sports shoes and clothing.

These general terms and conditions comprehensively govern the relationship between Continuum Solutions and its customers and apply to all customer orders from Continuum Solutions. Any agreement deviating from these general conditions requires a written agreement between the parties.

By placing an order, the customer accepts these general conditions as an integral part of the contract with Continuum Solutions. The customer's general conditions are not applicable, even if he mentions them on his order form or if they are mentioned in any way during an order, unless Continuum Solutions has expressly accepted them by writing.

They are, with the prices, the Customer's order, and the acknowledgment of receipt, the only documents governing invoicing. The information given in the catalogs, prospectuses, as well as the declarations of the Continuum Solutions sales representatives have only an indicative value.

2. Order and Price

"Product" means the devices, parts and accessories offered and distributed by Continuum Solutions as well as additional equipment and services.

Orders can be placed with Continuum Solutions in writing or electronically.

The prices of the goods sold are those in effect on the day the order is placed. They are denominated in Swiss Francs and calculated excluding taxes. Consequently, they will be increased by the rate of VAT and transport costs, as well as any additional taxes to come.

Continuum Solutions reserves the right to modify its prices at any time. However, Continuum Solutions undertakes to invoice the goods ordered at the prices indicated when the order is registered. Any particular offer of price or conditions made by Continuum Solutions, is valid for the number of days indicated on the offer or in the absence of information, 10 days.

Any increase, decrease, deletion or cancellation of tax or other regulatory levy will be immediately passed on to the customer by Continuum Solutions.

The orders placed commit the customer. Continuum Solutions has the right to refuse an order within five working days.

Unless otherwise stated, there is no right of return or termination.

Continuum Solutions may accept an order by delivering the goods or sending the customer a written order confirmation. In the order confirmation, Continuum Solutions provides the customer with an indication of the estimated delivery time. The customer is obliged to examine the order confirmation carefully and to immediately report any deviations from the content of the order.

3. Delivery

Delivery is made to the place indicated by the customer on the order form.

The delivery time indicated when registering the order is given for information only and is in no way guaranteed. Consequently, any reasonable delay in the delivery of the products cannot give rise to the benefit of the customer: "the allocation of damages" the cancellation of the order.

Continuum Solutions tries to combine in a single delivery several orders referring to the same customer number and having the same delivery address. If the customer wishes separate deliveries, the additional cost (in particular the costs for each delivery) will be invoiced to him.

Continuum Solutions, depending on the availability of the Products, reserves the right to reduce, split any order or offer substitute Products to the Customer in terms of quantities or delivery times requested by the Customer. These modifications appear on the acknowledgment of receipt issued by Continuum Solutions.

When delivery of the goods to the carrier is delayed for reasons for which the customer is responsible, the risk of loss and damage passes to the customer upon notification that the goods are ready for delivery to the carrier. The latter will also have to bear all the related costs, such as storage costs in particular.

In the event of delivery problems due to circumstances over which Continuum Solutions has no influence, such as a strike, lockout, loss of material, transport or operational blockage at the manufacturer or transport problems, Continuum Solutions is authorized to cancel the order.

The verification of the goods by the customer must be carried out at the time of their taking over. In the event that goods are missing or damaged during transport, the customer must make all the necessary reservations on the delivery note upon receipt of the said goods. These reservations must also be confirmed in writing within five days of delivery, by registered mail AR (action required).

4. Payment

Unless there are special conditions, invoices are payable within 10 days from the invoice date, subject to an ongoing Customer authorized by Continuum Solutions or by the credit insurance organization. In the case of an absence of authorized work in progress, the Customer must pay the invoice before dispatch of the order.

In the event of late payment, Continuum Solutions may suspend all orders in progress. Any amount not paid on the due date appearing on the invoice automatically entails the application of penalties of an amount equal to three times the legal interest. The rate of legal interest (or moratorium rate) retained is that in force on the day of delivery of the goods. These penalties will be due upon simple request from Continuum Solutions. In addition, in accordance with the regulations in force, an administrative fee of CHF 50 will be invoiced to the customer in the event of late payment.

If the customer is in default of payment of a debt, all other claims of Continuum Solutions, including those for which installment payment has been agreed, must be paid immediately. In the event of formal notice to pay by the customer, Continuum Solutions is entitled, without notice, to suspend all or part of all other deliveries to the customer until his debts are paid or guaranteed. All the consequences of such a suspension of delivery are exclusively the responsibility of the customer. The latter also bears all risk of loss/damage to the goods.

If, within an additional period set by Continuum Solutions, the customer does not discharge his debts or does not provide sufficient guarantees, Continuum Solutions is authorized to refuse any other delivery and to demand damages.

Continuum Solutions has the right to request at any time that the client immediately provide it with the necessary and sufficient guarantees to remove any doubts that Continuum Solutions may have as to its solvency and its possibilities of payment, in particular in the event of a lawsuit or other signs of payment difficulties. The client is required to notify Continuum Solutions in the event of a foreseeable liquidity problem.

No discount is accepted for early payment. Payment for orders is made by bank transfer.

5. Set-off / Right of retention

The client is not entitled to set off any counterclaims against the claims of Continuum Solutions. Any right of retention by the customer on goods belonging to Continuum Solutions is entirely excluded.
