ARTICLE 1 :
The company reserves the right to modify the present general conditions of sale at any time.
The applicable general terms and conditions are those in force at the date of registration of the order.
Our acoustic guarantees are applicable within the framework of the reduction of the nuisance of the sound sources designated as the object of the acoustic arrangements of our supply.
Our guarantees are not applicable if noise is emitted by a sound source not protected by our soundproofing devices, such as, where applicable, piping, duct, exhaust, casing, part of a noisy machine or equipment, part of a frame or wall, part of a building envelope or pre-existing protection, sub-assembly of ancillary equipment or installation and any other source not entirely inside the acoustic enclosures and silencers of our supply, the sound production of which would then be considered as part of the background noise.
In this respect, in the case of equipment including sub-assemblies intended to limit the sound production by acoustic radiation of parts subject to machining, the design was carried out taking into account dimensions that the customer confirmed to us that they allowed us to include entirely in the acoustic protections
these parts, taking into account their dimensions and the distance between, on the one hand, the upstream (respectively downstream) end of the part and the upstream (respectively downstream) end of the soundproofing equipment and, on the other hand, the tool located furthest upstream (respectively downstream) and the upstream (respectively downstream) end of the soundproofing equipment. Therefore, our warranties are not applicable in the case of noise radiation from a machined part that is not fully enclosed within the soundproofing devices.
Furthermore, our guarantees are not be applicable in the following cases:
Noise levels different from those observed during our visit due to changes in the operating conditions of the sound sources designated as the object of the acoustic arrangements or the production relating thereto.
Poor anti-vibration insulation of the sound sources or acoustic transmission by solid-state.
Modification of the soundproofing devices without our agreement.
Non-assembly of the soundproofing devices by us.
About the verification of acoustic performance, it is understood to be carried out following the measurement protocol described in the NFS 31.084 standard entitled "Method for measuring sound levels in the workplace" (August 1987 and possible subsequent updates) with a tolerance of plus or minus 2 dB and taking into account correction for background noise.
The illustrative visuals and the sound result of the videotapes on this site are not contractual to the final acoustic result that you may obtain after using our products.
The colors are not contractual. The possible differences are related to the resolution of the screen.
AudiCare France cannot guarantee the same result without an acoustic study and any recommendation on our part.

Means of payment
Payment & Payment Security
We offer you multiple payment methods; you choose the one that suits you best:
Credit card (CB, Visa, Mastercard),
Cheque (photocopy of identification required)
BY CREDIT CARD:
Nothing could be simpler and in complete safety. As soon as the bank's server encrypts and records your card payment, your order is validated. Otherwise, your order would not be taken into account.
We accept Credit Card, Visa, and Eurocard.

In partnership with one of the most renowned and safest French banks, the Banque Populaire, ridphonic.fr allows you to make your purchases in complete security since your payment is made directly on the bank's site, in a completely secure manner and your card number is only encrypted on the bank's highly secure site. You pay for your purchases with complete peace of mind and simplicity.
SYSTEMPAY allows an Internet user to make online purchases in complete security.
Payment security is based on various elements:
- Merchant authentication (SYSTEMPAY certificate issued by the Banque Populaire),
- Confidentiality and integrity of exchanges: credit card numbers never circulate unencrypted on the net and are never communicated to online merchants (128-bit SSL encryption technology),
- The fact that each transaction is associated with an authorization request made to the CB bankcard network, which verifies that the card exists, that it is not in opposition, and that the authorized limit is not exceeded,
- The control of the cardholder through the visual cryptogram on the back of his or her bank card (the last three digits on the back of the card must be systematically indicated by the cardholder on the payment form).
Security measures by the bank for online payments:
- Use of the "visual cryptogram": this three-digit code, printed on the back of the card, can only be provided by the cardholder, which eliminates payment attempts based solely on the retrieval of a CB number/expiry date pair.
- Implementation of 3D SECURE: tripartite protocol, cardholder bank/card-issuing organization/merchant bank to precisely identify the cardholder, and the cyber merchant to secure the end-to-end process.
- New specific Cyber payment functionality allowing the splitting of the payment into an initial deposit of a random amount that only the cardholder of the account associated with the card will be able to indicate to finalize the purchase.
Article 5: Reservation of ownership
The delivered products remain the property of our company until full payment of the order amount.
For security purposes, AudiCare France may, if necessary, ask you to provide the necessary or supporting documents.
Audicare France will retain full intellectual property rights to its projects, studies, and plans, which may not be communicated to third parties or executed without its express consent. If studies are not followed by an order, we reserve the right to charge the cost of these studies at the rate enforce in the company.

If your package is delivered against your signature, in the case of any damage to the product, you need to check the condition of your package and product, and if necessary, make the deliveryman note this, putting reservations on the delivery slip. If you have not made any reservations to the deliveryman, the transporter will systematically refuse to take them into account, and you will not be able to ask us for any compensation. In this case, the simple statement "subject to opening the package" is not valid. If you receive a deteriorated item and you have made reservations to the deliveryman specifying "Item deteriorated by transport" and refused the item, AudiCare France will send you a new item.

Delivery is made by the transporter. Your package will be delivered in front of your home or business or at the foot of your building.

Reservations in case of breakage:
Please check the condition of the package and the items on receipt in the presence of the delivery person and make any reservations in case of breakages.

In the event of a problem, the customer must make reservations within 3 days to the transporter by registered letter with acknowledgment of receipt. Simply stating on the transporter's slip "subject to inspection upon unpacking" is not sufficient. In the event of breakage, damage, or deterioration of a product related to transport, the customer is required to check upon arrival of the package, and if necessary, mention the damage on the delivery slip of the deliveryman and to refuse the package. In the case where the customer has kept the item despite a defect, if he decides later not to keep the item after the passage of the transporter, he will have to assume alone the return costs. If the reserves are not mentioned on the transporter's slip, no claim or indemnity will be taken into account.
