Any purchase on the site (hereinafter the "Site") automatically entails acceptance of all of these conditions. 


The purpose of these GTC is to define the conditions under which Users can access the Site, place Orders and manage the relationship between Atelier Fauves and Users, including all the rights and obligations arising from it.

They apply to the relations between Users and between Users and Atelier Fauves. All Users undertake to respect, without restriction or reservation, these GTC, whether they visit the Site or place an Order.

Atelier Fauves is free to modify, at any time and without prior notice, the present GTC, in order to take into account any legal, jurisprudential and/or technical evolution.

In any case, the fact that the User continues to use the Site after being informed of the modification of the GTC implies the acceptance of the modifications of the latter by the User.

The version of the GTC that prevails is the latest version available on the Site.

The version applicable to an Order is the one in force on the date the Order is placed.
Each new Order requires the acceptance of the GTC by the Customer, which the latter acknowledges and accepts.
If Users do not accept the GTC or any subsequent amendments thereto, they must refrain from using the Site.

The User declares that he/she has obtained from Atelier Fauves, prior to placing an Order, all the information concerning the Products and the delivery methods. The User declares that he/she is solely responsible for the choice of Products and their suitability for his/her needs.

The User must be a duly represented legal entity or a natural person of legal age who has the legal capacity to place an Order on the Site. Failing this, the User must have the authorisation of his/her legal representative to place an Order, which he/she expressly acknowledges and accepts. 

By the present General Terms and Conditions of Sale, the Customer is forbidden to purchase for resale, within the meaning of Article L 110-1 of the French Commercial Code

These General Terms and Conditions of Sale are the exclusive property of the Seller. Any reproduction, even partial, is strictly forbidden.


The prices of the products applied are those communicated on the site and confirmed to the customer during the validation of the order.

The prices of the products are indicated in euros, and are inclusive of all taxes for metropolitan France, excluding delivery costs; it being specified that the value added tax is that in force on the French metropolitan territory on the day the order is validated; which remain payable by the customer unless otherwise stated or under special conditions.

Furthermore, as we have chosen to sell our parts at the same prices all over the world, the prices indicated on our website are exclusive of tax for all deliveries outside mainland France. The French VAT is not applied and cannot be refunded following a delivery to any country where there is no export tax.

Thus, for example, the price displayed on our site for a product displayed at 50€ including VAT for delivery in France, and 50€ excluding VAT for delivery in a country such as Switzerland, Great Britain, Australia, the United States, etc.

The amount of the additional delivery costs is indicated to the customer directly on the "checkout" page. The Products remain the property of the seller until full payment has been received by the seller.

We reserve the right to change our prices at any time but we undertake to apply the prices indicated on the site at the time of your order.

We inform you that in case of display of an erroneous price, obviously derisory (low price), whatever the reason (computer bug, manual error, technical error.), the order -even validated by us- will be cancelled, of which we will inform you as soon as possible. You will then be able, if you wish, to place your order again at the correct price.
