For the purposes of applying these general terms and conditions of sale, it is agreed that ASMI and the client shall collectively be referred to as the “Parties”.

As a result, the fact of placing the order implies that the client adheres completely and without reservation to these general terms and conditions of sale.

ASMI reserves the right to alter, at any time and without notice, the contents of these general terms and conditions of sale. Should a condition not be met, the matter will be settled by the practices and French laws currently in force with respect to distance selling.
