The price invoiced to the customer is the price indicated on the order confirmation sent by AC MOTORSPORTS.

This enables you to pay via a BNP PARIBAS bank server in a secure environment. Your payment is made directly to a bank in a secure environment without going through the shop's server, a guarantee which is all the more important as your card numbers are known only to our banking partner (BNP PARIBAS).

8. Disputes

This contract is subject to French law. AC MOTORSPORTS shall not be held liable for damages of any kind, whether material, immaterial or corporal, which may result from the malfunction or misuse of the products marketed. AC MOTORSPORTS guarantees against hidden defects in accordance with legal conditions. The purchaser has a period of eight days from the discovery of the hidden defect to notify his or her reservations by registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt. It is the same for the possible modifications of the products resulting from the manufacturers. Competition fuels are reserved for use only during competitions. The correct use of these special fuels implies that the customer must always filter his fuel before transferring it into his tank in order to retain any impurities that may be present in the canister. The responsibility of AC MOTORSPORTS shall, in any event, be limited to the amount of the order and shall not be held liable for simple errors or omissions that may have remained despite all the precautions taken in the presentation of the products. In the event of difficulties in the application of the present contract, the purchaser shall have the possibility, before any legal action, of seeking an amicable solution, in particular with the help of the AC MOTORSPORTS team:

a professional association of the branch, a consumer association or any other council of his choice. It is recalled that the search for an amicable solution does not interrupt the "short period" of the legal guarantee, nor the duration of the contractual guarantee. It is recalled that as a general rule and subject to the discretion of the Courts, compliance with the provisions of this contract relating to the contractual guarantee assumes that the buyer honors its financial commitments to the seller.

Complaints or disputes will always be received with attentive benevolence, good faith being always presumed in those who take the trouble to explain their situation. In the event of a dispute, the customer will first contact the company to obtain an amicable solution.

Failing this, the Commercial Court of Aix en Provence has sole jurisdiction, regardless of the place of delivery and the method of payment accepted.

9. Warranty

In all cases, AC MOTORSPORTS shall not be held liable for failure to comply with the regulatory and legal provisions in force in the country of receipt. AC MOTORSPORTS' liability shall be systematically limited to the value of the product in question at the date of sale, with no possibility of recourse against the brand name or the company producing the product. Competition fuels are reserved for use in competitions only.

In any event, the customer benefits from the legal guarantee of eviction and latent defects (Art.1625 and following of the Civil Code). On the condition that the buyer proves the hidden defect, the seller must legally repair all the consequences (Art.1641 and following of the Civil Code); if the buyer goes to court, he must do so within a "short time" from the discovery of the hidden defect (Art.1648 of the Civil Code). You can contact the customer service : 5 days a week (from Monday to Friday included) at the following phone number : +33 (0)4 42 50 60 36 or by mail at : [email protected]
