GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SALE
The website, https://victor.lu (the “Website”), is administered by Victor S.à r.l., a private limited liability company (société à responsabilité limitée) established under the laws of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, having its registered office at L-7240 BERELDANGE, 7 route de Luxembourg and registered with the Luxembourg Registry of Commerce and Companies (Registre de Commerce et des Sociétés, Luxembourg) under number B 191915 (the “Seller”).
Article 1: Scope
1.1. These general terms and conditions of sale (the “GTCS”) apply to all contracts entered into between a consumer or a professional and the Seller for the products and/or services offered by the Seller through its online store (the “Contract”). These GTCS supersede all conditions imposed by the customer, unless otherwise agreed.
1.2. For the purpose of these GTCS, any natural person acting for purposes outside the scope of his business, industry, craft or profession is considered a consumer (the “Consumer”). The term “professional” used in these GTCS refers to any natural or legal person acting for purposes relating to his business, industry, craft, or profession, including through an intermediary acting in his name or on his behalf (the “Professional”).
In these GTCS, the term “Customer” means either a Consumer, or a Professional.
These GTCS will apply to this sale of products and/or services (the “Products”) if accepted by the Customer, electronically or through an agreement signed by the Seller.
The Seller reserves the right to amend these GTCS at any time and at its sole discretion. The applicable GTCS are those on the Website in force at the date the order is placed by the Customer.
Subject to proof to the contrary, data recorded on the Website constitutes proof of any transactions that have occurred between the Seller and the Customer.
Article 2: Orders and Methods of Payment
2.1. All orders shall be placed on the Website, https://victor.lu.
By accepting these GTCS, the Customer acknowledges that the Seller provided him with all necessary pre-contractual information to place his/its order, in a clear and intelligible manner, as set forth in Article L. 222-3 of the Consumer Code.
2.2. The Customer also acknowledges that prior to his/its definitively placing the order, the Seller provided him/it with a complete summary of the purchase made (nature of the Product, quantity, price), as well as the general terms and conditions of the transaction (including delivery or completion date, terms of payment, after-sales service contact information, withdrawal conditions).
2.3. The Seller allows the Customer to rectify or cancel his/its order. For this purpose, the Seller makes available to the Customer the following “double click” system to validate the order:
- First click on “[Proceed to checkout]” signifies agreement on the content of the order; and
- Second click on “[Payment]” signifies order confirmation (the “Order Confirmation”). Such Order Confirmation represents the validation of the order by the Seller, subject to the actual payment of the purchase by the Customer. The Customer expressly agrees to know and be aware of the fact that the second click, the Order Confirmation, implies the obligation to pay.
The conditions applicable to an offer may be modified as long as the Customer has not confirmed his/its order.
2.4. The Seller will electronically send the Customer acknowledgment of receipt of the order.
2.5. Invalid information provided by the Customer will result in order processing delays. The Seller shall not be liable to the Customer for any such delays.
Stock Limit and Fraud Monitoring
2.6. The Customer acknowledges that the Products offered for sale are subject to the limitations of available stock.
2.7. If a Product is no longer available in the Seller’s inventory, the Seller shall use its best efforts to inform the Customer of such unavailability prior to Order Confirmation.
2.8. The Seller also reserves the right to cancel or refuse any order in the event of: (1) an incomplete order placed by the Customer when registering information on the Website (for example, an illegible order or lack of essential information); (2) an order made by an insolvent Customer or with whom there were previous payment problems; or (3) a conflict in the context of a previous order. In that case, an e-mail shall be sent to the Customer. To avoid any attempted fraud, the Seller reserves the right to (i) request additional information from a Customer, and/or (ii) limit an abnormally high quantity of Products ordered.
2.9. Receipt of an order does not automatically lead to its acceptance by the Seller. The Seller reserves the right to limit the quantity of the Products ordered and refuse to sell Products to any Customer in pursuant to the above provisions. If an order cannot be made or is canceled by the Seller, the Seller shall send notice thereof to the Customer using the e-mail address provided by the Customer. The Customer will not be charged if his/its order cannot be made or has been canceled by the Seller. If the Customer has already been invoiced for an order that is subsequently canceled or cannot be made, the Seller will fully refund the sums paid by the Customer.
2.10. To the extent that nothing else is specified in the Seller’s published Products descriptions, the prices indicated by the Seller on the Website are final, in Euros and exclusive of taxes. Taxes will set forth separately. Additional delivery and shipping charges, if any, will be shown separately in the individual Product Description.
2.11. Different methods of payment are possible for Products purchased on the Website, including payment by credit card and payment card. The method of payment will be invoiced once the order is placed through the service on the Website, and subject to its validation by the Seller. The Seller will send no Products until the method of payment has been validated.
2.12. If the Customer chooses “PayPal” as a method of payment, the payment shall be made through PayPal (Europe) S.à r.l. and Cie, SCA, Boulevard Royal, L-2499 Luxembourg, in accordance with the general conditions of use (see https://www.paypal.com/lu/webapps/mpp/ua/useragreement-full?locale.x=en_LU).

Delivery of Products
3.2. Delivery shall be made in accordance with an estimated delivery date as set out in the Order Confirmation (depending on the carrier responsible for delivery and the location of the Customer), unless an event beyond the Seller’s control occurs.
