General Terms of Sales
1.1 The following general terms of sale (hereafter the “General Terms of Sale”) apply to any service(s) (hereafter the “Service(s)” ) or product(s) (hereafter the “Product(s)” ), (i) other than those related to the supply of energy or (ii) other than those whose sale implies specific onsite advice (e.g. enosolar, enoheat gas etc.) offered by ENOVOS LUXEMBOURG S.A. (hereafter “ENOVOS“), a Luxembourg limited liability company with registered office at 2 Domaine du Schlassgoard, L-4327, Esch-sur-Alzette, Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, registered with the Luxembourg Trade and Companies Register under number B 44.683.
1.2 By purchasing (hereafter the “Purchase”) a Product and/or Service through an e-shop operated by ENOVOS, any other online platform (hereafter a “Platform”) or in an ENOVOS point of sale (hereafter a “Point of Sale”), the customer, either a private individual or a professional (hereafter the “Customer”), agrees to be bound by these General Terms of Sale.
1.3 Each Product and/or each Service is subject to separate specific terms of sale (hereafter the “Specific Terms of Sale”) which form, together with the General Terms of Sale, the contract (hereafter the “Contract”). ENOVOS reserves the right to modify the present General Terms of Sale at any time and at its sole discretion. The updated General Terms of Sale will automatically apply to any new Purchase.
2 Purchase process
2.1 The order for a Product or Service is placed on a Platform or at a Point of Sale.
2.2 An order confirmation (hereafter “Order Confirmation”) of the Purchase will be sent by email to the Customer through the Platform or will be considered to be given to the Customer by handing out the Product after payment in case of Purchase at a Point of Sale.
2.3 ENOVOS reserves the right to modify the prices applicable to the Products and Services until payment by the Customer.
2.4 Invalid information provided by the Customer may result in delay in the processing of its order, and ENOVOS shall not be liable towards the Customer for such delays.
3 Invoicing & Payment
3.1 When ordering a Product or Service on a Platform, the Customer is invited to enter its billing details, delivery details, delivery method and payment method and then to confirm its order by paying for the Product or Service. In case of online sale through a Platform ENOVOS will send a receipt to the Customer by email together with the Order Confirmation.
3.2 When purchasing at a Point of Sale, the Customer receives the Product or is entitled to the Service after payment together with a receipt in paper form.
3.3 In case of delivery of a Product purchased on a Platform, delivery fees for regular mail will be invoiced to the Customer during the purchase process.
3.4 The purchase of Products and Services made on a Platform may be paid with credit card and the purchase made at a Point of Sale may be paid with credit card or V-Pay card. The enoshop in Esch-sur-Alzette (at ENOVOS’ registered office) also accepts payments in cash.
3.5 In specific cases, should a Product or Service not be paid before delivery of such Product or Service, an invoice will be sent to the Customer by ENOVOS. Any invoice which is not paid when due, shall give rise to the automatic implementation of late interest according to the applicable legal late-payment interest rate plus an administrative fee for handling of the late-payment, as provided in articles 3.5.1 and 3.5.2 below, with no prior notice required and without prejudice to any other rights of ENOVOS.

3.6 Any additional services requested by a Customer, if applicable, will be invoiced separately.
4 Delivery and Return of Products
4.1 An order will be processed in view of an indicative delivery date as indicated in the Order Confirmation (depending on the carrier in charge of the delivery and the Customer’s location), such indicative delivery date being set no later than thirty (30) calendar days from the Order Confirmation. In case of an event outside ENOVOS’ control and if ENOVOS cannot respect the indicative delivery date indicated in the Order Confirmation, ENOVOS will contact the Customer with a revised indicative delivery date.
4.2 The Products will be deemed delivered when they are delivered by the carrier (under its sole liability) to the delivery address indicated by the Customer during the purchase process and repeated in the Order Confirmation.
4.4 If nobody is available at the Customer’s address to accept the delivery, the carrier engaged by ENOVOS shall leave a note stating where the Product can be picked up.
4.5 If the Customer fails to collect the Product or accept delivery within the number of days of their availability as communicated by the carrier or ENOVOS, ENOVOS reserves the right to withdraw from the sale of the Product, and will subsequently reimburse the Customer and take back the Product, unless the Customer notifies ENOVOS his desire to set a new delivery date without delay.
4.6 Notwithstanding the legal and contractual warranties attached to any Product based on the applicable law, the Customer shall verify the conformity of the delivered Product in regard of the Order Confirmation.
4.7 Therefore, if a Product or its packaging is damaged on delivery or in case of non-conformity of a Product with regard to the Customer’s Order Confirmation, it is the Customer’s responsibility to decline the delivery.
4.8 If the Customer becomes aware of non-conformity of the Product with the Order Confirmation after delivery of the Product, the Customer shall report any obvious defects of the Product within five (5) calendar days from the date of receipt of such Product and shall assert any claim in writing to email@example.com. Products damaged during transport or non-conforming Products in regard of the Order Confirmation will be replaced or refunded by ENOVOS at no extra cost. Such return of Products shall be made through ENOVOS’ Customer Service and, in any case, according to ENOVOS’ instructions and requirements, notwithstanding the application of the right of withdrawal granted to end-user consumers.

4.10 The Customer acknowledges that the Products are offered for sale subject to the limits of the available stock of Products.
