Any order submitted to us directly or through an intermediary such as our online shop is only binding on the buyer after express acceptance on our part.

We cannot be held responsible in any way for the permanent or temporary cessation of the marketing of a product or service. If obsolete products are ordered, a new commercial proposal on available articles will be made to the customer. However, the customer may not demand delivery or compensation for obsolete products.

The prices indicated on the order form or in the shopping cart on the website will be maintained for one month from the date of signature. If the delivery or the service has not taken place within this period, the prices invoiced will be those in force on the day of delivery.

The prices are stated exclusive of tax. All duties and taxes that are currently applicable or that may become applicable will be invoiced in addition.

The prices indicated take into account the terms of payment in cash at the time of ordering, regardless of the method of payment agreed.

No order can be validated or accepted by HVM Racing if the amounts due are not paid in cash.

In case of purchase by credit card, the credit cards are debited on the day the order is registered and the bank details are entered by the customer.

Our delivery times are given as an indication. No delay shall justify the cancellation of the order, nor give rise to penalties or compensation.
