Terms & Conditions

Cardio Systèmes - Terms and Conditions of Business 


Payment for all France and all export orders must be made by cleared payment before despatch. Payment options include bank transfer, cheque, PayPal™ and all major credit and debit cards. The seller reserves the right to decline certain types of payment without reason. The seller may also request payment before certain goods are ordered in from both account and non-account customers.

Free Delivery on Internet orders

Free Delivery to France on any internet order above 200 € paid by credit card or PayPal

VAT Exemption

All prices in the internet site are displayed VAT included except for exports outside the EU. VAT will be charged at the current French VAT rate for all products, services and carriage charges except where specified.

 Title of Goods

Risk in the Goods shall pass on to the Buyer on delivery for French customers and on dispatch for all export orders. Title in the Goods shall not pass to the Buyer until final payment has been made.

All Goods remain the property of Cardio Systèmes until payment is received in full.

Delivery of Goods

Delivery dates given by the seller are approximate only and do not form part of the contract. The seller accepts no liability if delivery dates are not met. The seller reserves the right to amend its prices without prior notice.

Cardio Systèmes reserves the right to update its published prices. The Buyer has the responsibility to check product pricing and any discounts or special prices at the time of ordering. Any requests for bulk pricing, export or tenders will be made on an ex-works basis only.

Carriage is not quoted in the price list and will be charged at the current rate on all orders. The seller will endeavor to use the most cost effective means of delivery but makes no guarantees regarding delivery. Restrictions on the sale of certain goods apply and the seller reserves the right to refuse orders where restrictions apply. The buyer is requested to co-operate fully when certain checks are required by Company Policy, and various national regulations. 
When signing for the goods the customer should always ensure that the external packaging is not damaged or appears to have been tampered with if so this should be noted on the carrier's delivery sheet. The signature “UNEXAMINED” is regarded by the carrier's as equivalent to a clear signature. A verbal notice of shortage is unacceptable.


Goods cannot be returned without the prior permission of Cardio Systèmes and the issue of a valid returns authorisation number which must be clearly marked on the outer carton packaging (not the product packaging). Goods must be returned complete with the manufacturers packaging and instructions in an un-damaged and re-saleable condition.                                                                                                                                                                                 

Goods not returned in accordance with the Terms and Conditions may (at the discretion of Cardio Systèmes) either not be accepted or attract a re-stocking and administration charge (whether or not a credit is due) of:

i)  Within 4 weeks of delivery  -  15% handling charge
ii)  Within 1 - 3 months of delivery  -  25% handling Charge
iii)  Agreed returns will be subject to a minimum charge of £15
iv)  Special order, non stock items and/or exceptional quantities are NOT eligible for return, unless explicitly agreed, by the company in writing beforehand.  

The issue of a return authorisation number does not constitute acceptance by the seller that a credit will be made. Risk in returned goods will not pass to Cardio Systèmes until a credit is made.

Any alleged defects or delivery shortages must be notified, in writing by the Buyer to Cardio Systèmes within 3 days of delivery. Complaints in respect of alleged defects will not be grounds for the Buyer to withhold payments, and give no right of set-off against payment due from the Buyer to Cardio Systèmes.

Credit will not be issued for returned Goods, which, in the opinion of Cardio Systèmes, are in an unsaleable condition. Returning goods to the seller is the responsibility of the buyer. If the goods are returned because of a fault by Cardio Systèmes or a valid product defect as stated in these Terms and Conditions, Cardio Systèmes may at its discretion refund reasonable costs of return when issuing a credit. Where a credit is refused the goods remain the responsibility of the purchaser.

Goods of a type not normally held in stock, and therefore specifically ordered are non-returnable except under any warranty.

Under no circumstances will Cardio Systèmes be liable for:

i)  Defects or damage resulting from fair wear and tear, neglect, improper use by the Buyer, or failure of the Buyer to comply with the manufacturer's instructions. 
ii)  Goods which have been adjusted, altered, adapted or repaired.
iii)  The suitability of any Goods for any particular purpose or use whether or not the purpose or conditions were communicated to the seller.
