Terms and Condition
GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SALE OF RENAULT EURODRIVE VEHICLES
These General Terms and Conditions, which are effective as of December the 17th 2018, apply to the sale of new Renault vehicles placed under the TEMPORARY TRANSIT (TT) status and registration, as defined by the French Customs Code, and marketed under the label “Renault Eurodrive”.
The present document sets the terms and conditions under which RENAULT S.A.S (defined hereinafter as the « Seller ») contractually agrees to sell a brand-new vehicle to a Client (hereinafter defined as the « Client ») qualified to receive a full exemption of the taxes normally applicable to such a car sale transaction in France and is an integral part of such contract. The Contract includes a « repurchase » provision by the Seller at the end of the usage period specified in the vehicle purchase order form. The Seller may however wave this repurchase right, upon formal request from the Client, making then the sale of such vehicle definitive. In such an occurrence, the transfer of property of the vehicle is deemed to take place at the time the Client pays the final agreed upon price of the vehicle to the Seller.
1. CONTRACT FORMATION
1.1. General Terms applicable to all Contracts
All Eurodrive contracts are of a buy-back type, where the Seller and the Client agree to the repurchase of the vehicle by the Seller at the end of the contracted usage period. While the Contract between the Seller and the Client is deemed formed, as far as the delivery date and the price guarantee are concerned, at the time the Client signs his/her purchase order form, which specifies the vehicle type and model, the date and location of its delivery and the agreed upon selling price, the full binding effects of the contract on the Seller side remain subject to:
• The payment in full of the agreed upon selling price by the Client prior to the delivery of the vehicle
• The justification by the Client that he/she does qualify for the « tax-free » purchase of a brand-new vehicle as per the « Temporary Transit » provisions of the French Customs Code.
1.2. Specific terms applicable for Contracts entered through a « remote » platform
If the purchase order form has been submitted by the Client through a Website or a Call Center operated either by Renault directly or an affiliated Renault agent (hereinafter referred to as the « Agent »), the Client may, within 14 calendar days of the delivery of his/her vehicle cancel his/her order without having to provide any justification, be subject to any penalty nor bear any cost other than the one associated with the return of the vehicle to the Renault Eurodrive return center specified hereinafter. For all intents and purposes, a vehicle is deemed delivered only after signature by the Client of the delivery sheet presented to him/her by the delivery center designated on the contract. In order to exercise such cancellation right, the Client MUST inform, in unambiguous terms, the Seller or its agent of his/her decision in due time, either by facsimile or email sent to the Seller or its Agent, or by certified mail with return receipt sent to the following address:
RENAULT S.A.S 13 Avenue Paul Langevin 92359 Le Plessis Robinson France
While not compulsory, the Client may use the suggested form available in Exhibit 3 to convey his/her decision to cancel his /her contract as per the specific terms hereof. In case of exercise by the Client of the above mentioned cancellation right, the Seller will, on the day of return of the vehicle to the specifically designated Renault Eurodrive Return Center (Poligono de Tambre, Via Isaac Peral 12-18, Santiago de Compostela, Spain) or the day of receipt of the proof of shipping of the vehicle to that center, refund the full contract price to the Client, using the same mean of payment originally used to complete the transaction. Client recognizes however that he/she remains fully responsible for any damage to the vehicle occurring during the period he/she had the vehicle in his /her possession. Any resulting loss in value of the vehicle will then be charged to the Client and either deducted from the refunded amount or charged in addition to the originally paid price should the damages exceed such amount. As indicated above, this cancellation right must be exercised within 14 days of the delivery of the vehicle and any usage of the vehicle by the client during such period, MUST not exceed fifty (50) kilometers (threshold above which the vehicle will be requalified as « used »).
1.3 Modifications to the contract information
The minimum delivery time regardless of the place of delivery is 21 days in France and 24 days outside France. The following changes will be invoiced if they occur 21 days or less before the delivery date: – Change of owner / name: 150€ – Change of delivery location: 350€ If the vehicle is already registered, any request for modification will be refused.
2. PRICE GUARANTEE – TECHNICAL MODIFICATIONS
The price of the vehicle set in the purchase order form is the one applicable on the date the order is placed and is guaranteed by the Seller until the agreed upon delivery date. In case of a delayed delivery not imputable to the Client, this price guarantee will be extended until the effective date of delivery, unless the applied price increase originates from fiscal or technical modifications imposed to the Seller by the French Authorities or the delay is the result of an Act of God (Force Majeure).
In such a case where the final price of the vehicle is greater than one set in the purchase order form, the Client may, at his/her election, cancel his/her contract as per the conditions set in article 10.1 hereinafter.
As a result of the buy-back commitment of the Seller, the client agrees to pay the Seller, at the signature of the purchase order, the price indicated on such order for the contracted usage period of the vehicle, according to the then applicable rates. Client acknowledges that the payment of the price mentioned above does not creates any right for the Client to terminate the contract for reasons other than the ones specified under section 10 below.
Client also acknowledges that, as per Article L-441-6 of the French Consumer Code, any delayed payment of all or part of the agreed upon price will give the Seller the right to apply to the outstanding amount « per diem » late interests calculated at the then prevailing refinancing rate set by the European Central Bank, plus an additional penalty of 1 tenth of a point. The Seller reserves also the right to charge to the Client, without prior notice, any fees necessary to cover the cost for the Seller of the collection process of any unpaid amount.
The transfer of property of the vehicle is suspended until full payment has been received by the Seller (article 2367 of the French Civil Code). The transfer of the risks however remains effective at the time the delivery, as defined in section 3 hereunder, is taking place.
The Seller will deliver the vehicle and the client will take delivery of such vehicle as per the terms agreed upon in the purchase order. In case of a delay in the delivery resulting from an event qualifying as an Act of God and affecting either the Seller or the Client, the date of delivery will be deemed pushed by a number of days equal to the duration of such event.
In order to obtain the release of the vehicle, the Client must present to the Delivery Center staff, a valid identification document (e.g. passport) and a copy of his/her Eurodrive purchase order. In case of physical absence of the client on the day of delivery, the vehicle may be released to any of the other drivers qualified as per the rules of the Eurodrive Program, provided such driver can present a copy of the passport of the Client, a power of attorney signed by the client and authorizing such delivery, and a copy of the purchase order.
As a result of the special terms and conditions under which Eurodrive vehicles are registered and used in France:
• The Vehicle can only be delivered to the Client, who is the person designated as the owner on the vehicle registration’s card (Carte Grise), and after validation by the French Customs Authority of the qualification of such Client to receive the tax-free benefit associated with the Eurodrive Program • The Client hereby agrees to immediately inform the French Custom Authorities of any change in his/her status occurring during the period of validity of the contract and which may render him/her no longer qualified for the tax-free benefit mentioned above. • The client hereby recognizes that he/she is fully responsible for his/her compliance with all local traffic and road usage rules and regulations, including for example mandatory stickers required by local authorities in France or in Europe, to enter certain areas with the vehicle.
As mentioned above, the client must take delivery of the vehicle as per the terms stated in the purchase order form, unless otherwise agreed to by both parties. These terms specify the date, time and location of such delivery. Renault cannot be held responsible for a missed delivery due to the non-compliance of the Client with those terms. Client acknowledges and recognizes the right of Renault, in such a missed delivery situation due to the client’s default, to rescind the contract as per the conditions set in article 10.2 hereinafter.
Should the lack of delivery be due to the Seller (except if caused by an Act of God event), and the Seller is unable to offer the Client a replacement solution of « mobility », the Client will be entitled to a resiliation of the contract, as per the conditions set in article 10.2 below,
Such a replacement solution of « mobility » will be deemed offered upon the provision by the Seller to the Client of a rental vehicle of at best equivalent in category to the one specified in the purchase order form, subject to availability at the time and location of the missed delivery.
Such provision of a replacement vehicle, even of a lower category, shall not entitle the Client to any compensation. The Seller and the Client must agree to the terms of usage of the replacement vehicle, and in particular the countries in which such vehicle is allowed to be driven. All expenses exposed by the client in relation to the usage of this replacement vehicle and not pre-authorized by the Seller will remain the responsibility of the Client (e.g. additional insurance coverage). The replacement vehicle will need to be returned by the client as per the terms agreed upon by the parties and with a full tank of gas.
All Eurodrive vehicles are covered under a fully comprehensive insurance policy with no deductible. Such coverage becomes effective the day of delivery of the vehicle and expires at midnight on the day of return of such vehicle as set in the contract. A summary of this Eurodrive insurance coverage is available in Exhibit 1 to these General Terms and Conditions of Sale. Countries currently covered by the Eurodrive insurance policy are: Andorra, Austria, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Metropolitan France, Germany, Gibraltar, Great Britain, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Macedonia, Malta, Monaco, Montenegro, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, San Marino, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Vatican.

6. REPURCHASE OF THE VEHICLE BY THE SELLER
Eurodrive standard sale contracts include a repurchase right by the Seller at the end of the usage period. Unless this right of repurchase is waived by the Seller at the Client’s request, such Client, must sell the Vehicle back to the Seller, and return it at the end of the term specified in the Contract, at the location agreed upon by the parties. Upon such return, the Seller will inspect the Vehicle and determine if such vehicle bears signs of unusual wear and tear.
The price specified in the Contract for the usage period of the vehicle corresponds to the difference between the sale price of such vehicle and its pre-set value on the return (buy-back) date. There is therefore no additional financial consideration to be provided by any of the parties to the other upon completion of the return of the vehicle other than for charges which may be due for changes made to the initial agreement or repairs required on the vehicle for reasons not covered either by the manufacturer warranty or the Insurance policy.
6.1 Return and Reconditioning of the Vehicle

• The Vehicle is returned to the Seller or to any person designated by him for this purpose, no later than on the contracted date of return and at the location specified in the contract, clean and in good mechanical and body conditions.
• The Client has carefully complied with all the instructions specified in the manufacturer’s service booklet;
• The Client pays the estimated cost of repair that is communicated to him/her by the Seller, for any damage which may have been noticed during the above-mentioned inspection of the Vehicle and is not covered under the terms of the insurance policy referred to in section 4 above.

IMPORTANT NOTE: No Vehicle can be considered as returned without its registration certificate
6.2 Additional Costs which may be charged to the Client by the Seller
The Client is fully responsible for:
• In the case of abandonment of the vehicle, which means returning a vehicle outside a Renault Eurodrive-approved return centre, the following costs will be charged to the customer: – If the vehicle is abandoned in the same city as the return centre initially planned, the customer will be invoiced for all the actual costs incurred by the delivery, in addition to the other costs (parking, storage, etc…) established by Renault Eurodrive. – In addition to these actual costs, if the vehicle is abandoned in any other place, the customer will have to pay a fixed penalty of 400€ if the vehicle is in France, and 600€ if the vehicle is abroad.
• All costs associated with any parking tickets, traffic violations fines and/or any kind of penalties levied on the Seller by Authorities and paid by the Seller on behalf of the Client. Seller reserves the right to provide the contact information of the Client to the relevant authorities for further charges when warranted.
In consideration of the above, the Client hereby authorizes the Seller to use the bank details (Credit Card information in particular) he/she provided at the time of signature of the purchase order and to debit his/her account in case of non-payment of such additional charges on or before the return date, and in particular, but not limited to, charges pertaining to: • The cost of cleaning and/or repairs of damages to the vehicle not covered by the manufacturer warranty or the insurance policy, • Additional days of use of the vehicle not part of an authorized contract extension • The costs if any related to the modification of the originally contracted Return Center. • The replacement cost of any item found missing at time of return (e.g. key, registration certificate, etc.), • All fines or penalties known but not yet paid by the Client
6.3 Early Returns and Extensions
a. Early Return
The Client may, with the Seller’s written consent, return the vehicle before the return date specified in the contract. Unused days will then be refunded based on the originally contracted rates, after a deduction of 10 days. The first 21 days of the Contract are never refundable.
b. Late Return – Contract Extension
The Client may return the vehicle after the return date specified in the contract. Such contract extension must however be formally authorized and approved by the Seller and the cost of each additional day will be charged to the Client at a set price which may be higher than the original contractual rate. All extensions require a pre-payment by the Client of the total number of additional days requested. The maximum number of days for which an extension can be granted is determined by the number of original days included in the contract and the last day of the validity of the registration certificate issued for the vehicle under the Temporary Transit status. Once purchased, extension days are never refundable.
NOTICE: As the vehicle insurance coverage expires at midnight on the return date set in the contract, any late return / extension not preapproved by the Seller will render the client fully responsible for all damages caused to the vehicle or to a third-party vehicle during the unauthorized extension period.

Except in special cases, the Client does not need to get his/her vehicle inspected by the Seller before the finalization of the transaction, as he/she is buying the vehicle “as is”.

The order processing and usage of the Vehicle can allow the Seller to collect certain “personal data” about the Client. Personal data is defined as data that directly or indirectly allows the identification of an individual. The collected data is considered and treated by the Seller, as personal data, as defined by the European and French regulations, and the Seller has the responsibility to handle this data in accordance with such regulations.
By signing this Contract, the Client recognizes and accepts that the proper usage of the Vehicle can require the collection and processing of his/her personal data by the Seller, including, if necessary, the geo-localization of the client, for the purposes described below.
a) Usage of Personal Data
The personal data that is collected by the Seller from the Client as part of the purchase order process and during the usage of the Vehicle are essential to the management of the relationship between the Seller and the Client and in the provision by the Seller of certain services to the Client such as:
• Information on new generic services and products;
• Information on services which would benefit the client based on his profile
• The capture of various technical information on the Vehicle operation;
• The provision of certain remote assistance services (door unlock, remote start…);

The Seller must implement appropriate safety measures commensurate with the current state of the available technology to protect the personal data that he/she handles. All the information collected by the Seller are stored in secure servers. The Client does acknowledge however that although the Seller implements all means possible to protect such personal data, the transmission of this data is being done over communication networks not always controlled by the Seller, making it impossible for the Seller to ensure that those communications are not intercepted and, therefore, guarantee absolute data security. When connected services are accessed using a password, the Seller requests that the Client does not share the password with anyone and keeps it confidential. The Client is responsible for his/her password and the preservation of confidential data from the later.
b) Retention of Personal Data
The personal data collected from the Client in relation to the use of the Vehicle will be retained for the entire duration of the contractual relationship, after which it will be destroyed or made anonymous. However, the data linked to geo-location will systematically be erased/made anonymous immediately after the delivery of the associated service.
c) Users of Personal Data
Any collected personal data may be communicated to the Seller, its subsidiaries, the members of its commercial network, as well as to any third party who has a commercial relation with the Seller and is bound by a confidentiality agreement, whether located in or outside the European Union. The Seller may also communicate this personal data to an authorized third party in the event that it is obligated to disclose such data due to a legal obligation or for the purpose of enforcing or securing this Contract. The Client has the right to access the information collected on him/her through the Seller’s Customer Relationship Management Services
d) Other driver’s information
The Client is responsible, prior to the usage of the Vehicle by any other authorized user, for informing such user about: ▪ The collection and use of personal data; ▪ The possible geo-location of the Vehicle; ▪ The option of deactivating connected services.
e) Client’s Rights
In compliance with the dispositions of Articles 38, 39 and 40 of the French “Information Technology and Liberties” Law no. 78-17 dated January 6, 1978 as modified by law no. 2004-801 dated August 6, 2004, the Client may, at any time and by simply providing a proof of identity, access and correct his/her personal data as well as oppose any processing of such data. Such access must be requested by contacting:
Service Relation Clientèle RENAULT SAS 92109 Boulogne-Billancourt Cedex
Since the regular uploading of his/her personal data can result in his/her geo-localization, the Client can request electronically the deactivation of this uploading process. The Customer can also reactivate this geo-localization under the same terms.
12. JURISDICTION AND DISPUTE RESOLUTION
EURODRIVE Contracts are exclusively subject to French law. In case of dispute between the Parties on the execution or the interpretation of the contract and/or of these General Terms and Conditions of Sale document, the Parties will attempt to resolve such dispute amicably.
