Article 5 – Prices
The prices are expressed in Euros (€) including all taxes, with the VAT rate applicable on the day of the order. Any change in the VAT rate may be reflected in the price of the items. The prices of the Goods do not include delivery charges.
Goods are sold at the prices on the Site on the date the order is placed. The invoice sent to the Buyer will therefore be at the price in force at the time the order is registered.
The Goods remain the property of the Seller until full payment is received. Ownership is not transferred until payment is received and cleared; therefore, the Buyer is responsible for ensuring the products remain in perfect condition.
Article 6 – Guarantees
Regarding the Consumer Client, CTSKIS can be held liable for defects in the conformity of the Goods under the conditions of Article L.217-4 et seq. of the French Consumer Code and for hidden defects in the item sold under the conditions set out in Articles 1641 et seq. of the French Civil Code.
When making a claim under the legal guarantee of conformity, the Client:
- has a period of 2 years from the date of delivery of the Goods to claim.
- may choose between repair or replacement of the Goods. However, CTSKIS does not have to proceed according to the Client’s choice when this choice entails a cost that is clearly disproportionate to the other option, considering the value of the Goods or the gravity of the defect.
- the Client is exempted from proving the existence of the lack of conformity of the Goods for a period of 24 months from the delivery of the Goods.
The legal guarantee applies independently of any other commercial guarantee that may exist.
When claiming under the warranty for hidden defects, the Client has a period of 2 years to claim from the discovery of the defect. The Client may choose between rescission of the sale or a reduction in the sale price, in accordance with Article 1644 of the Civil Code.
Claims made under the guarantees must be addressed to CTSKIS by mail or email at the following addresses: résidence l’Illaz 73150 Val D’Isère
Article 7- Liabilities
The Goods offered are in accordance with French legislation and standards applicable in France. The Seller shall not be held liable in case of non-compliance with the legislation of the country where the Goods are delivered (for example if an item is prohibited…).
In the case of purchases by professionals, the Seller shall not be held liable for any indirect loss or damage: operating losses, loss of profit, loss of opportunity, damage, or expenses, which may arise from the purchase of the products.
The total or partial impossibility of using the Goods, for example due to hardware incompatibility, cannot give rise to any compensation or reimbursement or to any liability on the part of the Seller.
Lastly, as the Seller only has an obligation of means for all the stages linked to distance selling, the Seller declines all responsibility for any inconvenience or damage inherent in the use of the Internet or telephone network, in particular loss of service, external intrusion, or the presence of computer viruses, and in general any other event expressly qualified by jurisprudence as a case of force majeure.
Article 8 – Methods of payment
Confirmation of any order requires payment of the agreed price by the Buyer.
The Buyer has the choice of all the payment methods offered by the Seller and listed on the Seller’s website to pay for an order. The Buyer guarantees the Seller that they have the necessary authorisation to use the method of payment chosen by them when confirming the order.
For any payments by cheque or bank transfer, the order form clearly states the deadline by which the Client must send the payment. In the event of non-receipt of the payment within the time limit, the order shall be cancelled automatically.
The Seller reserves the right to refuse to make a delivery or to honour an order from a Buyer who has not paid in full or in part for a previous order or with whom a payment dispute is in progress.
Article 9 – Proof of the transaction
The digital records, kept on the Seller’s computer systems according to current security guidelines, shall be considered proof of communications, orders and payments between the parties. The archiving of order forms and invoices is on a reliable and durable medium that can be produced as proof.
In the event of payment by cheque, the order will only be processed upon receipt of the cheque. Consequently, the deadlines applicable are those on the day of receipt of the cheque and may therefore be modified in relation to those given the day the order was placed.
Article 10 – Delivery terms, condition of Goods
The Goods will be delivered to the address indicated by the Client when the order was placed. The Goods will be shipped after receipt and clearance of the Client’s payment.

If the Client is a Consumer, and the Goods are not delivered within the period expressly agreed, or in the event of failure to agree on a delivery period within 30 days of the conclusion of the sales contract, the Client may give CTSKIS formal notice, by signed-for registered letter, to deliver within a reasonable additional period. If CTSKIS fails to deliver within this new period, the Client may terminate the contract by signed-for registered letter. The contract will be considered terminated upon receipt by CTSKIS, unless it has been executed in the meantime. The sums paid by the Consumer Client will then be refunded without interest or compensation at the latest within 14 days following the date on which the contract was terminated.
When the Goods are delivered by a carrier to the address indicated on the order form, it is the Client’s responsibility to check the condition of the Goods in the presence of the delivery person. In the event of any problems (notably damage or missing items), the Client must:

CTSKIS shall not be held responsible in case of delay and/or non-delivery because of a wrong or erroneous address or an address to which the delivery is impossible.
Article 11 – Methods of exercising the right to rescission
When the Client is a Consumer within the meaning of the first article of the Consumer Code, in accordance with its provisions, they have a period of fourteen (14) days from receipt of the order to withdraw, without having to give reasons or pay penalties, except in the cases expressly provided for below. If the fourteen (14) day period expires on a Saturday, Sunday or public holiday, it shall be extended until the next working day.
Please note that Professionals benefit from a right to rescission, pursuant to the provisions of Article L 221-18 of the Consumer Code, when the contract is concluded off-site between two professionals, provided that the contract does not fall within the scope of the main activity of the professional and that the number of employees employed by the latter is equal to or less than five.
The Client may exercise their right to rescission using the form below or by any other unambiguous statement expressing their wish to cancel addressed to the registered office of CTSKIS at IMM L ILLAZ 73150 VAL D’ISERE, FRANCE.
11.2 Return of Goods
The cost of returning Goods is borne by the Client. To exercise the right to rescission, the returned Goods must be in their original packaging, in perfect condition and accompanied by the purchase invoice and a return slip.
If a Client exercises their right to rescission, they will receive a full refund of the sums paid, i.e. the purchase price of the Goods ordered plus the initial shipping costs, as soon as possible or at the latest within fourteen (14) days following the date of receipt by CTSKIS of the Goods returned by the Client in accordance with the conditions set out in this article.
Goods that have been customised or made to the specifications of the consumer, i.e. after confirmation of the final proof of visuals (BAT) are excluded from the right to rescission.
