These Terms and Conditions exclusively govern the relations between the 69 Parts Company and the Customer who wants to order on the www.69parts.com website belonging to the SARL rufus.
These conditions are subject to change at any time without notice.

2 – Order
Types of orders:
Orders can be made:
- Online, on the www.69parts.com website
- By phone, to our Customer Service, from Monday to Friday from 9 am to 6 pm
During their visit to the www.69parts.com website, Customers choose the articles they want (every product sheet has a detailed description, price and availability) and add them to their basket after indicating the quantity required.
After selecting all the required articles, Customers go to their cart, where they are invited to choose the place and mode of delivery and indicate their form of payment.
They log in or create their Customer Account.
After this step, Customers are invited to validate their order.
Modification or cancellation of the shopping cart is not possible after this step, which implies the complete acceptance of these Terms and Conditions.
After confirming the content of the order, the Customer validates it definitively through payment.
The Customer undertakes to pay the validated order.
The Customer will receive a confirmation email summarising the articles ordered, their prices, shipping costs and packaging, and the total amount of the order.
3 – Payment
Means of payment:
Payment in full is made at the time of purchase, without discount, including for articles that are not available in stock and which require a period for procurement.
Depending on the destination, Customers can pay by:
- Credit Card (cash payment by Stripe)
- Bank Transfer (the order is then validated on reception of the amount of the order in our bank account. The information necessary to make the bank transfer is available in the order confirmation email sent to the Customer)
- Other means of payment, depending on the destination
Every payment incident will cause the cancellation of the order, and the possibility for the Company to refuse later orders if a dispute subsists with the Customer.
Also, any suspicion of payment fraud will cause the order to be blocked and possible cancellation if the fraud is confirmed.
Some orders may be subject to additional verifications. Thus, the Customer may be requested to supply various proof (identity document, proof of address, etc.)
The order will be processed on reception of the requested document. The non-reception of these documents will cause the cancellation of the order.
The www.69parts.com website also uses the 3DSecure security protocol, which consists in checking that the card is used by its real holder for every online payment.
For professional Customers:
In case of the sale, assignment, pledging or contribution of a company’s business or of the equipment necessary for its operation by the Customer, the sums due to the Company become immediately payable, regardless of the conditions fixed previously.
4 – Availability
If an article proves to be unavailable after the confirmation of the order, the Customer will be notified by mail and retains the possibility to cancel their order.
5 – Price
By default, prices are in euros with VAT included and exclude shipping fees.
For Professional Customers who are registered and validated by our services and who benefit from VAT exemption, prices are in euros without VAT and exclude shipping fees.
69 Parts reserves the right to modify its prices at any time.
6 – Delivery
Places of delivery:
The Customer can choose the delivery to an address indicated when placing the order (the Customer is requested to check the accuracy of the address indicated)
We inform you that for any shipment outside the European Economic Area that could generate additional and variable customs fees, and that under no circumstances we will be responsible for and bear these costs.
Average delays on shipments of products in stock. In no case does this constitute a delivery commitment from us. An additional delivery time may be required by the carrier without this being attributable to 69 Parts.
In case of an incident with delivery (damaged package, missing products, retaped packages, etc.), the Customer must note their observations on the delivery note and have the driver sign it (keep a copy of the document), and/or, if required, refuse the package.
If the package is delivered without signature, the Customer must indicate the damage to the transport company by registered mail with proof of receipt within 3 working days.
The Customer is also requested to contact our Company as soon as possible to notify us of the delivery incident.

Professional Customers have no right of withdrawal for contracts concluded online, which are considered to be contracts concluded without the simultaneous physical presence of both parties. The following paragraphs cover the right of withdrawal for private Customers only.
Private Customers have the right to withdraw from the present contract without giving a reason during a period of 14 days. The period of withdrawal expires 14 days after the Customer, or a third party other than the transport company and designated by the Customer, takes physical possession of the last item.
Exercising the right of withdrawal:
To apply their right of withdrawal, the Customer must notify 69 Parts of their decision to withdraw from this contract by an unambiguous declaration (e.g., a letter sent by post, fax or email)

- By post to: 69 Parts, 190 Route de Fréjus, 83440 Fayence, Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur, France

In order to respect the withdrawal period, it is sufficient for the Customer to transmit their decision to exercise their right of withdrawal before the expiry of this period. The Customer must settle the direct costs for the return of the goods.
Consequences of the right of withdrawal:
Customers should send back the goods to the address supplied by 69 Parts after the validation of the request, without excessive delay and, at all events, no later than 14 days after informing 69 Parts of their decision to withdraw from the present contract. This period shall be deemed to be respected if the goods are returned within the period of 14 days. After the legal period, restocking fees will be charged. If the Customer withdraws from this contract, 69 Parts will refund all payments received from the Customer, including shipping fees (except additional fees incurred by the choice of a mode of transport that is more expensive than the standard transport mode proposed by 69 Parts) without excessive delay, and, in any case, no later than 14 days after 69 Parts has been notified of the Customer’s decision withdraw from this contract. 69 Parts will refund the amount using the same payment mode that the Customer chose during the initial transaction, unless a different mode of refund is expressly agreed. In any case, this refund will not incur any fees for the Customer. 69 Parts may defer the refund until it receives the goods or until the Customer has given proof that the goods have been shipped, whichever is the earliest. The Customer shall only be liable for a depreciation in the value of the goods due to handling other than that which is necessary to establish the nature, the characteristics and the good working order of the goods.

The exercise of the right of withdrawal is excluded for the following contracts:

Faulty parts must be returned within 14 days from the day when the Customer expresses their decision to withdraw from the contract.
After the period of withdrawal, the Customer must not send back the goods without previously informing 69 Parts in order to obtain authorization to return the goods. The Customer will thus receive all necessary instructions in order to return the goods under the best conditions.
In no case will 69 Parts accept packages sent COD, freight collect or those that are poorly packed.

Customers benefit from a legal guarantee against hidden defects and a legal conformity guarantee for every product they receive. In addition, some products have a contractual guarantee given by the manufacturer, the terms of which are specified on the warranty certificates.
Within the framework of the legal guarantee against hidden defects and the legal conformity guarantee, the Company’s responsibility is limited to the initial value of the items. The Company does not assume any direct responsibility for damage due to the use of the products. Also, the Company does not assume any responsibility for work such as dismantling and/or installation, diagnoses and assessments, loss of use of the vehicle, waste of time, inconveniences or any other ensuing expense.

The products may be resold in compliance with their purpose. However, the Company shall not be held liable for failures or the poor operation of the goods if they are resold by the buyer to their own customers.
The same applies to certification: some parts, excluding original replacement parts, are not certified in France. All parts for competition (e.g., camshafts, exhausts, motorsports brake kits, motorsports engine kits, etc.) must be used on a racing circuit under the buyer’s full responsibility, who must notify their own customers of this as the case may be.
The Society is not responsible for any intangible damage like losing customers, losing gains, production’s decrease, profit margin’s decrease, any action or suit made by a third party against the professional Customer.
