  1. Object

The products are described on the Site are in good faith and as accurately as possible. Customers may obtain extra information on the products presented on the site by sending an email message to contact@belseva.com. The presentation of the products is not binding on the Vendor and does not constitute an offer in the legal sense of the term.

The photographs, diagrams, drawings or videos illustrating the products are not contractually binding. Under no circumstances shall the Vendor be held liable for any errors that may occur in them.


  1. Ordering

You may place an order to purchase a Product advertised for sale on the Site by following the onscreen prompts after clicking on the item you are interested in. You will have an opportunity to check and correct any input errors in your order by going to “View Cart” up until the point at which you submit your order by clicking the “Proceed to Checkout”.

At this point you will be asked to Sign In or Register if you are a new customer.

After placing an order, you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your order, giving an order number and a summary of your order.

After the Customer finalises his order, the order is recorded and the sale becomes final. The Customer can no longer correct any data errors made in entering his order.

The confirmation email that the Vendor sends to the Customer concludes the contract and implies the Customer’s unconditional acceptance of these terms and conditions. The details of the order are stated in the confirmation email.

The order form shall be recorded on the Vendor’s electronic registers, which are stored on a reliable, durable support and shall be considered to be proof of the contractual relations between the parties. It also provides proof of the availability and price of the items.

Automatic recording systems are deemed to be valid proof of the nature, content and date of the order. The sale shall not be concluded until confirmation of the order has been sent by email to the Customer.

The Vendor shall not be bound by the Customer’s order until he sends written confirmation that he agrees to process the order. The Vendor reserves the right to subject the order to other conditions, to suspend or refuse it, notably if the order proves to be incomplete, if the data supplied are obviously erroneous, if the Customer has failed to pay previous orders, or for any other reason that the Vendor may see fit.

The information given by the Customer when he places an order is binding on him: in the event of an error in the Customer’s name or address, the Vendor shall not be held liable for his inability to deliver the goods.

Orders shall not be final until they have been confirmed by payment of the price by the Customer.

We may be unable to process your order if:

  1. a) the Product you ordered is out of stock or discontinued; or
  2. b) there is a problem with authorisation of the payment on your credit card.
  1. Price and Payment

The price of any Products will be as quoted on our Site, except in cases of obvious error.

These prices exclude VAT and delivery costs, which will be added to the total amount due.

Prices are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders in respect of which we have already sent you a Dispatch Confirmation.

We cannot complete your order until you have paid for it in full. Payment can be made by most major credit or debit cards.

By using a credit/debit card to pay for your order, you confirm that the card being used is yours. All credit/debit card holders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. If the issuer of your card refuses to authorise payment we will not accept your order and we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery and we are not obliged to inform you of the reason for the refusal. We are not responsible for your card issuer or bank charging you as a result of our processing of your credit/debit card payment in accordance with your order.

We will deliver the Products to you from France by standard delivery (e.g. 48 hour Parcelforce). This is subject to a standard flat rate of £12 charge for all orders.

We will deliver directly to the delivery address specified in your order. We can deliver to all addresses within the European Union.

Orders are processed from Monday to Friday, except on public holidays. The parcels are dispatched from France, within a period of 1 to 15 working days following the payment of the order unless prevented by an act of God.

The Vendor shall not be held liable for any late or non delivery due to an act of God or an event beyond its control which may make performance of the contract impossible or more costly, in part or in whole, or due to the acts of third parties such as the suppliers to the parties to this agreement, subcontractors, agents and representatives, or if the Customer fails to fulfil his commitments.

Acts of God which release the Vendor from his duty to deliver the goods are war, riot, fire, strikes, accidents and the impossibility of obtaining provisions. The Vendor shall keep the buyer informed in good time of the abovementioned events or incidents.

Timely delivery of products shall only take place if the Customer has fulfilled his obligations to the Vendor. The lead times stated in the order or the summary of the order are given in good faith as an estimate only. The lead times are not in themselves an essential condition of the contract and the Vendor shall not be required to make any compensation whatsoever or to pay interests in the event of late performance of his duties.
