General terms of sale

The present general terms of sale govern all sales of products featured in the www.lelaborantin.com website. The act of placing an order therefore implies full acceptance without reservation by the purchaser of these general terms of sale to the exclusion of any other provision.
Any condition to the contrary introduced by the purchaser will therefore not be binding on Le Laborantin, failing express acceptance. Failure by Le Laborantin to enforce any one of the present general terms of sale at a given time cannot be interpreted as a waiver to enforce any one of the said terms later.
Moreover, Le Laborantin reserves the right to refuse any order from a client with whom there is litigation with respect to the payment of a prior order.
