Terms and conditions of sale:
Order: LBM Distribution will treat each order for products or services from professionals engaged in the resale and installation of audiovisual products as a request by the buyer to purchase the products in accordance with the terms of these general conditions of sale subject to acceptance or refusal of such a request by LBM Distribution.
Any new LBM distribution customer must, before any order is placed, register by submitting a request for a customer account opening form to the LBM distribution sales department and return the completed form accompanied by the required documents (complete contact details, RIB, a K-Bis extract, SIREN number and APE code.)
Registration of orders: Any order can only be considered as validated upon receipt of an order acknowledgement issued by LBM distribution which will summarize the prices, delivery costs and payment conditions.
The unavailability of a product due to a stock shortage or its removal from the catalogue will not result in any cancellation of the global order and will not entitle LBM Distribution to any compensation. The same applies in the event of a partial stock shortage.
Products are supplied at the price fixed on the basis of the price list in force at the time the quotation is drawn up. Our prices are ex warehouse, excluding transport costs and VAT, which will be invoiced in addition. Prices are subject to change without notice. The prices indicated in price lists, on the website, in catalogues or advertisements, do not constitute an estimate.
Terms and conditions of delivery:
Delivery takes effect upon receipt of the products by the customer at the delivery address specified on the order form. The delivery times indicated by LBM Distribution are given as an indication, no compensation or penalty for delay may be required by the customer in the event of non-compliance with these deadlines, and no order may be cancelled without the prior agreement of LBM Distribution.
Complaints about the characteristics, quantity or non-conformity of the goods delivered with the consignment note must be made in writing within three days of receipt of the goods, without prejudice to the arrangements to be made with the carrier.
Our goods delivered by carriers, travel at the risk and peril of the recipient. It is the responsibility of the LBM Distribution customer to check the quantity and condition of the packages and to take any necessary reservations from the delivery person. Shipment by our carrier Chronopost includes compensation insurance for loss or damage up to a maximum of 250 € per package. It is the customer's responsibility, if he so wishes, to take out additional insurance with LBM Distribution.
The products marketed by LBM Distribution are covered by the manufacturer's warranty period. These periods, which vary according to the equipment concerned, will be communicated to any customer who so requests. Any opening of the product terminates the warranty.
The products therefore benefit from a return guarantee from the LBM Distribution workshop, 26 Cours de Chazelles - 56100 Lorient - France. Any return must first be the subject of a return request filled in and validated in return by LBM Distribution's technical service at firstname.lastname@example.org
The unavailability of products during their repair time does not give rise to any compensation of any kind whatsoever.

This clause is an integral part of our general terms and conditions of sale.

The documentation, manuals, projects, plans and software prepared by LBM Distribution are and remain the exclusive property of LBM Distribution. The customer shall refrain from reproducing these elements, unless otherwise agreed by LBM Distribution.
The contractual commitments established between our customers and theirs, do not bind LBM Distribution.
