MULANN, which publishes and operates the Site, exclusively holds all rights on the Site, including, without limitation, the rights of reproduction, modification and adaptation.

The Site enables MULANN, as Seller, to offer for sale products, accessories and services (hereinafter referred to as the “Products” and “Services”) intended for listening, recording and archiving of sound, to any person (natural persons, companies, associations, administrations, etc.) residing in France (mainland France / Overseas Departments and Territories) or in the rest of the world.

However, for orders over 3,000 Euros, MULANN invites you to directly contact your team of professional sellers, by writing to sales@recordingthemasters.com, or by telephone on 33 (0) 2 33 68 68 00. Indeed, some of these general conditions of sale and services will have to be modified, adapted or supplemented to take into account the characteristics of these orders (quantities, volumes, deadlines etc.), by way of special conditions of sale.

For the application of these general conditions of sale and service – (hereinafter referred to as the “GCS”), it is agreed that MULANN and the persons ordering a Product(s) or Service(s), will be referred to collectively as the “Parties” and individually as a “Party” or, in particular for MULANN, “MULANN” or the “Seller”, and for those having placed an order on the Site, the “Buyer”.

 

Article 1. Purpose

 

MULANN hereby defines the GCS governing the Seller’s and the Buyer’s contractual rights and obligations resulting from the placing of an online order for Products or Services offered on the Buyer’s Site, which constitutes a sale and forms a sales contract between the Parties.

The GCS, including the preamble which together form an inseparable whole, apply to the exclusion of any other document, unless otherwise provided by the Parties by way of special conditions of sale. They also govern all commercial transactions proposed by the Seller on the Site, such as discount sales, flash sales or any other form of promotion, unless otherwise provided by provisions that will be attached to these commercial operations and specified by the Seller when these operations are carried out.

Any order for a Product or Service implies the Buyer’s acceptance of these GCS, without reservation, restriction or condition.

MULANN reserves the right to modify the GCS, at any time, in whole or in part, by publishing a new version on the Site, it being specified that the applicable GCS are those in force on the date of the order.

 

Article 2. Products – Services

 

Only Products and Services appearing on the Site on the day of its consultation by the Buyer are offered for sale by MULANN.  Offers concerning Products and Services are valid, while stocks last, as long as they are visible or proposed on the Site.

The photographs, images or other reproductions presented on the Site to illustrate the Products or Services offered are not contractual. The Buyer is invited to consult the description of each Product and Service to find out about its availability, characteristics and if necessary, any other information relating to its terms of use.

The information relating to Products and Services may be modified by MULANN, at any time, and may be updated, in particular concerning their availability, between the moment the Buyer consults them and his order.

MULANN makes every effort to ensure the accuracy of the information presented on the Site regardless of its form and content.  However, MULANN declines all responsibility for this information, which remains the sole responsibility of the suppliers and manufacturers of the Products and Services.  The use of the Products or Services ordered by the Buyer on the Site remains the sole responsibility of the Buyer and MULANN disclaims any liability for the use of a Product or Service, particularly in case of damage, of any kind, direct, indirect, material, non-material, consequential, concurrent or concomitant.

 

Article 3. Prices

 

All prices are indicated in Euros. The valid prices are those indicated on the Site at the time of the order and within the limit of available stocks (especially for all types of promotional offers related to said available stocks). The Seller reserves the right to change these prices, at any time, in whole or in part.

For orders placed throughout the European Union, these prices are increased by the VAT rate applicable in France and in force on the date of the order.

For orders placed outside the territory of the European Union, they are not subject to VAT and prices are net of VAT.

For any order, in addition to the price of the Product or Service plus VAT, if applicable, the Buyer must pay the delivery charges that will be indicated by MULANN at the time of order. For orders and deliveries made outside the territory of the European Union, the Buyer must also pay all customs duties and charges, import or registration taxes and any other charges that may be due on this order.

 

Article 4. Order

 

The Site is open for sales 7 days a week and 24 hours a day, including Sundays and public holidays, excluding maintenance and revision periods and in case of Force Majeure.

Orders will be processed as soon as possible by MULANN’s qualified staff as soon as the Buyer confirms payment of the order. However, orders placed on Sundays and public holidays will be processed on the next business day.

For orders of Products requiring the sizes and dimensions of the users, the Buyer must complete the specific form, indicating the requested information and attach it to his order. In case of dispute, only the information on this form will prevail.

Only orders made in accordance with the instructions specified on the Site may be processed by the Seller and give rise to delivery, subject to payment of the price and other costs of the Products or Services ordered as indicated below.

MULANN reserves the right to request additional information, postpone the processing or reject any order that does not comply with these instructions.

The ordered Products are delivered accompanied by the corresponding invoice and, if applicable, the necessary documents for deliveries outside mainland France.

For all deliveries in mainland France, the Seller uses the La Poste distribution network by default with one of the shipping formulas proposed by La Poste depending on the characteristics of the Products to be shipped, unless the Buyer decides otherwise when placing the order and informs the Seller with all the necessary details.

For any delivery outside mainland France, the Seller will offer the Buyer a transport solution, the most suitable according to the nature and specificities of the order, which must be confirmed by the Buyer at the time of the order.

Article 11. Miscellaneous provisions

 

11.1. Force Majeure

MULANN will not be liable for the total or partial non-performance of its obligations under the sales contract arising from the validated order, if this non-performance is caused by a Force Majeure event, as usually accepted according to the criteria defined by the case law of the French courts, and in particular in case of disruption or total or partial strike affecting the postal services and means of transport and/or communication, flood, fire or other natural disasters.

MULANN will notify the Buyer of any force majeure event within 10 working days of its occurrence.

The Parties agree to consult each other as soon as possible in order to determine how the order will be handled during the Force Majeure event.

If one or more provisions of these GCS Conditions are held invalid or declared as such under a law, a regulation or following a final decision of a competent court, the other provisions will remain in full force and effect.

The fact that one of the Parties does not invoke a breach by the other Party of one of its obligations under the GCS cannot be interpreted at any time as a waiver and does not prevent the Party concerned from invoking this obligation at any other time.


11.4 Conservation and archiving of transactions

MULANN reserves the choice of media needed to archive invoices and other documents relating to any transaction to keep a reliable, faithful and sustainable traceability.


11.5 Applicable law – Jurisdiction

The GCS and the contractual relations between the Parties are subject to French law to the exclusion of any conflict of laws rule, including in the case of orders placed outside France or by a Buyer domiciled outside France.

In case of dispute, the French courts will have sole jurisdiction and in the case of disputes with a Buyer who has the status of trader, only the Courts of Brest will have jurisdiction.

However, MULANN undertakes to endeavour to seek an amicable solution before any legal action.
