Each estimate written by FORMULE&SENS, accepted by the customer, will be treated as a separate contract. FORMULE&SENS reserves the right to accept or reject the order. The customer expressly authorizes FORMULE&SENS, for any reason whatsoever, to subcontract the execution of the order to any person of his choice.

Article 11 – Additional services
Any additional service not planned in the quote or the initial sales contract, requested by the customer will give rise to the issuance of a new quote and will be treated as a new order, which may in particular imply new indicative execution times.

Article 12 – Prototype and evaluation
This provision is intended to apply if and only if the order relates to the service of formulation of a cosmetic product on behalf of the customer.

FORMULE&SENS recommends that all the products formulated by it be tested at the Customer’s advanced expense, in accordance with the regulations in force, particularly in terms of microbiological and safety, and this, from the prototype stage before any evaluation of the product. However, if the customer decides not to have the products formulated by FORMULE&SENS tested at the prototype stage before they are placed on the market, he proceeds, after delivery of the prototypes against discharge, under his sole responsibility, to the tests for evaluation of the sensory criteria and product performance. It is specified that this evaluation cannot be assimilated to a real clinical study. FORMULE&SENS formulates all of its products in accordance with the rules of the cosmetic art and only contain raw materials that comply with European and French regulations. However, like any active product, adverse events or effects may occur. The prototypes will therefore be delivered against discharge under which the Customer undertakes to make use of the product in accordance with its intended purpose, to respect the instructions for use and the shelf life indicated on the discharge, to carry out or have carried out assessment by adults, consenting, in good health and fully informed. The Customer also undertakes not to dispose of the product in conditions that do not comply with respect for the environment. FORMULE&SENS cannot be held responsible for the harmful consequences of an evaluation occurring under conditions that do not comply with this provision.
Article 13 – Complaint – Commercial dispute
Any complaint relating either to the service provided or to the invoices must be brought to the attention of FORMULE&SENS in writing within 48 hours. Failing this, the deliveries and invoicing will be considered as accepted, without any reservation, a claim not being in any way suspensive of the payment of the undisputed part invoiced. In the event of disagreement on the origin of the disorders and whatever the consequences, the customer must produce in support of his complaint a statement in cause drawn up by an expert approved by the courts committed at his advanced expense. FORMULE&SENS reserves the right to counter-expertise, for legal purposes.
Article 14 – Confidentiality
FORMULE&SENS undertakes to treat the expert report confidentially and refrains from using it or communicating it to any third party whatsoever, for any reason whatsoever, except to prove the performance of the service. and in particular to obtain payment, or at the request of a competent administrative authority or in execution of a court decision that has become final. FORMULE&SENS also undertakes to treat confidentially all technical information, technical, commercial, financial or other information of which it may become aware in the context of the performance of the service. The Customer undertakes in the same way, this obligation of confidentiality extending to the composition of the products and the content of the services delivered by FORMULE&SENS. FORMULE&SENS may freely include the Customer’s name on its reference list.
Article 15 – Applicable law and jurisdiction

Any dispute, whatever its nature, even in the event of recourse in guarantee or of multiple defendants; any dispute relating to the validity, interpretation, execution, termination or termination for any reason whatsoever of a sales contract signed between FORMULE&SENS and the customer, will be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Commercial Court of the headquarters of FORMULE&SENS. In the contractual relationship between FORMULE&SENS and a foreign customer, the French version of these general conditions of sale will prevail over any other version in a foreign language.
Article 16 – Liability – Obligation to advise

FORMULE&SENS remains free to determine alone the methods, processes, techniques, products or others necessary for the performance of the service.

Article 17 – Limitation of liability
The Customer may only question the liability of FORMULE&SENS (including any person linked to FORMULE&SENS for the performance of the Contract) unless it demonstrates the existence of direct and immediate damage resulting from a culpable violation and intentional of its obligations within the framework of the execution of the Contract and only if it addressed to the Company its complaint by registered letter with acknowledgment of receipt within 1 (one) month as from the discovery of the damage. The Customer expressly waives any other recourse against FORMULE&SENS and is responsible for an equivalent waiver from its insurers. In all cases, in the event that the responsibility of FORMULE&SENS were to be retained, whatever the nature of the damage, the amount of the repairs charged to it, of any nature whatsoever, all sums combined, cannot in no case exceed the lowest amount between: (1) the direct and immediate damage caused by a culpable and intentional violation of the obligations of FORMULE&SENS within the framework of the execution of the Contract and (2) the amount excluding taxes invoiced by FORMULE&SENS to the Customer under the relevant Contract. FORMULE&SENS can never be held liable for compensation for indirect damage suffered by the Customer and/or a third party, such as, and in a non-exhaustive manner, loss of turnover, loss of profit, loss of value of goodwill, the loss of a business opportunity.
