GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SALE



ARTICLE 1. Field of application

 These general terms and conditions of sale (“T&C”) form, in accordance with article L 441-6 of the French Commercial Code, the sole basis of the commercial relationship between the Parties. 

They are aimed at defining the conditions under which TO THE FIT (the “Supplier”) shall provide industry buyers (the “Buyers or Buyer”) who ask for the same via the Supplier's website (the “Website”), by direct contact or in a paper document, with products consisting in industry scale 1 pattern solutions with their technical documents (shapes, tables, measurements etc.), in sizes stated for Europe, North America and Asia, all of which shall be chiefly provided online in the form of files in the .dxf format, Gerber format (.gbr) andAdobe-openable .pdf format intended for brands, style firms and the garment industry in two ranges:

 

  •   EASYFIT (library of customisable pattern prototypes, available only online).

  •   FITLAB (designing of patterns made to measure according to the Buyer's concept),called the “Product” or the “Products”.


The Buyer is asked to download free of charge a pattern model available on the Website, particularly in order to verify the common data processing characteristics of the Products.

These T&Cs shall apply without restriction or qualification to all sales agreed by the Supplier with its Buyers, regardless of the clauses in the documents of the Buyer, particularly its general terms and conditions of purchase.
All orders for Products entail the acceptance by the Buyer of these T&Cs.
The information stated on the Supplier's Website is provided for guidance only and may be revised without notice. The Supplier shall be entitled to make any modifications it finds fit.

The sales shall only be firm after the customer's order is accepted by the Supplier, as shown by the collection of payment in the transaction notice of the bank card or the PayPal system.
