Presentation

The Terms and Conditions of Sale govern remote orders and in-store orders, in all forms, for the supply of products and services offered by TECOWHEEL. They are expressly set forth on TECOWHEEL's website, TECOWHEEL.com. These Terms and Conditions constitute the sole agreement between the Parties with respect to the subject matter of the order and shall prevail over any other document. Any Order shall constitute acceptance of these Terms and Conditions of Sale without reservation.
 
 

Article 1: Definition

Customer: Any individual customer as well as any other customer.
The customer can place an order online from the website www.tecowheel.com. The order can only be registered on the website of TECOWHEEL.com if the customer has clearly identified himself by entering his e-mail and password, which are strictly personal. Any order implies acceptance of the prices and description of products and services available for sale online.

 

Article 2 : Prices

The prices listed on the TECOWHEEL website are in Euros and do not include shipping costs. They may be changed at any time without notice. To this price, it is necessary to add the shipping costs calculated according to the nature of the items ordered and the carrier selected. The shipping costs are specified in the customer's basket at the end of the selection of the various products, and are recalled in the summary of the order before validation.

The prices charged are those applied at the time of the order within the limits of available stocks and subject to typographical error or change in the rate of French VAT. Any change in this rate would then be reflected immediately on the selling prices.

All orders will be invoiced inclusive of all taxes, except for orders to DOM TOM and non-EU areas, which will be invoiced exclusive of taxes. Outside the European Union or in the DOM-TOM, and according to the legislation in force in the delivery area, customs fees and duties and taxes may be claimed by the local administrations, particularly customs and tax authorities, from the Customer.

Some products may have a "Free Shipping" offer, which will be clearly stated during the ordering process and on the customer's invoice.

 

Article 3 : Orders

 

1. operation

To validate an order, the customer must first identify himself. To this end, the customer fills out, according to the indications provided online, a form where he fills in the information necessary for his identification and in particular his name, surname, telephone number, postal and e-mail addresses and billing and delivery addresses.

The customer then definitively validates his order and our general conditions of sale by clicking on the payment button. This action definitively registers his commitment and acceptance of the general conditions of sale. From this moment, the order is recorded, and an order number is communicated to the customer by e-mail. The data recorded by the company TECOWHEEL in its computer system constitute proof of the nature, content and date of the order.

 

2. order modification

For any modification or cancellation of an order during processing, the customer is invited to contact our customer service via our contact form.

No order can be modified or cancelled after the preparation of the products constituting the said order.

Note that TECOWHEEL reserves the right to refuse any modification or cancellation of the order. Cases of refusal are systematic for products supplied on order, for products outside the catalog or for pre-orders. If however the customer insists, TECOWHEEL may decide to proceed with the cancellation or modification of the order with a deduction of 10% of the total amount including VAT of the order.

 

3. invoicing

The invoice includes the detail of the price of each product without tax with, if necessary, the amount of VAT calculated on the total without tax and included in the total including tax. An invoice of purchase will systematically reach the customer by dematerialized way on the address email provided at the time of the order.

The purchase invoice is nominative, it constitutes the only acceptable proof of purchase and is only valid when presented by the buyer in person and accompanied by a valid ID.

 

4. purchasing as a professional

TECOWHEEL does not cover any loss suffered by a company that has purchased one or more of its products in the catalog and that, as a result of a breakdown or a delay in delivery, for example, is negatively impacted in its business or its turnover.

 

5. transaction security

In order to secure the transactions carried out on our site and to fight against credit card fraud, the information transmitted in connection with the orders is automatically analyzed by our partner payment organizations in order to maintain a maximum level of reliability.

This is why we are likely, in the event of an alert raised by the payment organization, to ask the customer, by e-mail, to justify his identity, his residence, or his income, this with the aim of fighting effectively against fraudulent transactions. By the intermediary of these justifications, we guarantee a better safety to everyone, by making sure that the customer is indeed the owner of the bank card used.

TECOWHEEL does not accept payment by check.

TECOWHEEL accepts only the methods of payment set forth in Section 4 below.

 

Article 4: Methods of payment

 

1. by credit card :

(Carte Bleu, Visa, Amex, Mastercard, UnionPay...accepted in France). The validation of the order by credit card is a mandate to pay the price all taxes included of the order.

During the payment phase, the customer can in some cases enter his card details directly on our order validation page (Stripe payment for example) or be redirected via SSL encryption protocol to the payment interfaces of our partner organizations.

TECOWHEEL's payment service providers provide its customers with the 3D Secure authentication payment system to enhance the security of online purchases. At the time of payment, the cardholder's bank verifies his identity before validating the transaction. The authentication process to be followed is specific to each bank (code received by text message, email, authentication from a bank application ...), so we invite the customer to check the 3D-Secure operation of his bank card beforehand by taking advice from his bank. In case of inability to validate the authentication process or three authentication failures, our sales team will propose to the customer payment by bank transfer or any other method of payment that does not require a strong 3D-Secure authentication.

At the end of each transaction, a payment certificate is issued to the customer by our payment partner. It is up to the customer to keep this certificate as proof of the transaction.

2. by bank transfer

To pay by bank transfer, the customer simply choose this method of payment during the validation of the order. The bank details (RIB, IBAN ...) of the company TECOWHEEL to make the transfer are communicated to the customer in the email confirmation of the order.

The processing of the order starts upon receipt of the customer's bank transfer by TECOWHEEL. If the customer's bank transfer is not received within ten working days, the order is automatically cancelled by our computer system.

 

3. via PAYPAL

Paypal is a secure American payment platform that guarantees the customer a compliant delivery. The customer has the possibility to make his purchase with a cash payment via the PAYPAL platform; to do so, the customer just has to choose this payment method during the online ordering process.

 

4. fractional payments

For orders paid via one of our payment methods, the first monthly payment is taken upon validation of the order. The remaining installments are taken from the customer's bank account every month on the anniversary date of the order by direct debit. In case of failure to collect, TECOWHEEL sends a reminder to the customer and invites him to regularize his situation within two weeks.

In the event of non-compliance, TECOWHEEL shall take the necessary legal steps to recover the remaining instalments plus an indemnity of 25% of the cumulative amount of the remaining instalments. This indemnity shall cover the loss suffered by TECOWHEEL as well as the cost of the collection procedure initiated.

5. commissions

TECOWHEEL reserves the right to charge the customer a variable commission related to the payment method chosen. This commission is expressed in % of the total amount including VAT of the order and its amount will be clearly communicated to the customer during the payment phase.

 

Article 5: Transportation

Delivery is made to the address specified by the customer when placing the order (delivery address section in the form on the order validation page). It is carried out by our service providers Colissimo, Chronopost, UPS, DHL, Fedex, Distribike (scooters and motorcycles) ... depending on the compatibility of the carrier with the content of the order. It can only occur once the order is validated and payment made in full.

  • 1 year for most American brands (Future Motion, Super 73...), battery included.
  • 2 years for the other products (for the specific case of EDPM, the battery is guaranteed only 1 year, except in the case of oxidation; oxidation constitutes a case of exclusion of guarantee).

To benefit from the guarantee, the customer is invited to make a request for return via the After Sales Service form on our website.

The return of goods is at the customer's expense and risk. Products returned by carrier without physical protection or poorly protected will not be covered by the warranty. It is therefore the customer's responsibility to protect and insure the returned products during transport.

In the same way, products found to be damaged on arrival, abused or sent dirty will not benefit from the guarantee.

It is the customer's responsibility to keep the packaging and accessories received with the products as well as any labels affixed to the products or their packaging.

In addition, TECOWHEEL's after-sales service will select the carrier responsible for delivering the goods to the customer after the repair.
