The sole purpose of these General Terms and Conditions of Sale (hereinafter referred to as the "CGV" or "CG") is to set forth the terms and conditions for the sale and purchase, via the Website, of precious metals, such as gold, silver or numismatic products to the Clients and users of this Website (hereinafter referred to as the "Client").

Prior to any transaction, the Client shall expressly acknowledge that he/she has familiarised himself/herself with these CGV and the various documents referred to herein, and that he/she unreservedly accepts the same by ticking the box "I accept these General Terms and Condition of Sale".

By ticking this box, the Client confirms that he/she is at least 18 years old and has legal capacity to enter into this type of agreement or that he/she has been authorised to do so by an authorised individual.  If you refuse to accept the CGV, you will not be able to order any products from our website.

The CGV will apply to any contract between us for the sale of the Products to you (Contract).  Please read these CGV carefully and make sure that you understand them, before ordering any Products from our website.

You should print a copy of these CGV or save them to your computer for future reference.

These CGV, and any Contract between us, are in the English language.  Please advise what other languages will be included in the website.  In the event of any discrepancy between the languages used on the website,  the French language shall prevail.


General terms and conditions

The Client represents and warrants that he/she is aware that all activities relating to the sale and purchase of precious metals and numismatic products are governed by specific regulations with which he/she must comply (in particular, the French and other applicable international regulations on gold, taxes, customs and electronic transactions).

Availability - supply



The Client is hereby informed that, with regards to his/her purchase of precious metals, he/she shall be liable for any local taxes that may apply (or subsequently apply) on precious metal acquisitions (gold coins, sale of gold coins, storage of gold coins, etc.), as well as any other costs related to the Client’s purchase and the Client alone shall be responsible for the direct or indirect payment thereof.

G&F NET may be required to collect these taxes on behalf of the French tax authorities. Such taxes may therefore be added to the administration fees, if appropriate.

Flat-rate tax on precious metals

The Client is hereby informed that transfers in return for payment include sales, i.e. any sales transaction, including sale at public auction or private sales between individuals.

It also refers to exchanges and contributions, which should be regarded as cross-selling. Free-of-charge transfers (e.g. gifts, inheritance) are not subject to this flat-rate tax. Transfers that complete in France or any other European Union Member State shall be taxable. 

Transfers are deemed to take place in the Country where the property is physically located on the date of transfer thereof. Consequently, if an individual domiciled in France for tax purposes transfers property that has always been situated in a Country outside of the European Union, such transfer shall not be subject to this flat-rate tax.

In these circumstances, in addition to the purchase price, the Client shall also be liable for tax on precious metals if the purchase takes place in France via the Website.  The Client is strongly advised to take his or her own independent advice on any taxation or customs duty which may apply to them prior to completing any purchase of the products.  G&F Net gives no advice or warranty in relation to applicable taxation.


A Client Account is not required in order to browse the Website.

To purchase precious metals and numismatic products, the Client must create an account and provide a username (email or other term of his/her choice) and select a password.

The Client is hereby informed that it is necessary to provide a valid email address in order to receive an email confirming the creation of said account.

All of the above constitute the Client's "Login Details".

The Client acknowledges that he/she alone shall be responsible for all usage of his/her Login Details and the Website.

The Client undertakes to refrain from choosing a username that infringes the rights of a third party and to consequently refrain from using a username that, inter alia, infringes an intellectual property right, registered trademark, company name or patronym.

The Client undertakes that he/she alone shall perform all actions within the areas of the Website that can only be accessed using his/her Login Details and the Client shall be deemed to have performed all actions performed using his/her username.

In the event that the Client forgets his/her Login Details or in the event of the fraudulent or unauthorised use of the Client's Login Details by another User, G&F Net cannot, under any circumstances, be held liable in this respect and the Client must inform G&F Net thereof immediately by sending an email to: contact@silvergoldtobuy.com or a letter to the following address: GODOT ET FILS NET, 26 RUE VIVENNE, 75002 PARIS, FRANCE.

In accordance with Article 12 of the General Terms and Conditions of Use ("CGU"), the Client has the right to access, modify, rectify and delete his/her personal data and is hereby informed that a declaration was made to the CNIL [French Data Protection Authority] in respect of this Website in accordance with the "loi Informatiques et libertés" [French Data Protection Act] no. 78-17 of 6th January 1978.


For any purchases from the Website, the Client must follow the following purchase procedure:

  • create an account in accordance with Article 4 and complete the identification form on which the Client must provide all the required contact details or indicate his/her client account number if he/she has already created an account using his/her username and password;
  • validate his/her order having checked the same;
  • pay the sums due as stipulated;
  • confirm the order and payment thereof.

Our order process allows you to check and amend any errors before submitting your order to us.  Please take the time to read and check your order at each page of the order process.

After you place an order, you will receive an email from us acknowledging that we have received your order.  However, please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted.

You shall be asked to provide a photocopy of your ID, in a form acceptable to G & F Net before the goods are shipped.

By confirming the order, the Client accepts these CGV, acknowledges that he/she has familiarised himself/herself herewith and waives the right to invoke his/her own terms and conditions of purchase or any other terms and conditions.

All data supplied and the recorded confirmation shall constitute proof of the transaction. The confirmation shall be equivalent to signature and acceptance of the completed transactions.

G&F NET shall confirm receipt of all orders by email.

Your order will be accepted by sending you an e-mail that confirms that the products have been dispatched (“Dispatch Confirmation”).  The Contract between us will only be formed when we send you the Dispatch Confirmation.



The amount paid by the Client in order to purchase the products consists of the price of the product [as quoted on the website] in Euros as determined in accordance with market fluctuations and G&F Net's commission fee for each product purchased.

Orders can only be paid for in Euros. No refunds will be given for any products (even if lost or stolen) and no products can be exchanged or returned.

G&F NET cannot, under any circumstances, be held liable for any pricing errors in respect of products that are subject to market fluctuations, if such errors are due to the Internet.

As mutually agreed in writing by the buyer and G&F NET, in the event of any doubt, prior to validating any orders reference shall be made to the price on the date of the order as certified by market and financial authorities.

G&F NET reserves the right to vary its prices at any time but changes will not affect any order you have already placed. However, it is agreed that only the price indicated on the catalogue on the date of the order shall apply to the buyer.

It is always possible that, despite our reasonable efforts, some of the products on the Website may be incorrectly priced. If G&F NET discovers an error in the price of the products the Client has ordered, G&F NET will contact him/her in writing to inform him/her of this error and G&F NET will give him/her the option of continuing to purchase the product(s) at the correct price, or cancelling order. G&F NET will not process the Client’s order until he has his/her instructions. If G&F NET is unable to contact the Client using the contact details he/she provided during the  order process, G&F NET will treat the order as cancelled and notify the Client in writing. Please note that if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have been reasonably recognised by you as a mispricing, G&F NET does not have to provide the products to the Client at the incorrect (lower) price.

The prices shown include order processing fees, but not the shipping and delivery costs.  G&F NET’s delivery and shipping charges are advised to the Client during the check out process before he/she confirms his/her order.  To check relevant delivery charges, please refer to our Delivery Charges page https://www.silvergoldtobuy.com/delivery .

A surcharge shall apply for any order placed from outside Metropolitan France depending on the additional cost incurred due to the geographical area in question and as notified to the Client prior to making payment.


VAT exemption

Pursuant to Article 261 C of the French General Tax Code, with the exception of gold for industrial use, all transactions relating to gold, when performed by credit institutions, investment service providers, foreign exchange providers, discount operators, or any other individual/entity whose primary activity relates to gold transactions, shall be exempt from Value Added Tax (VAT).

In addition, Article 298.sexies.A of the French General Tax Code stipulates that a VAT exemption shall apply to precious metals if the purchase price does not exceed the value of the gold contained in the coins by more than 80%.

Consequently, the Client shall receive a detailed invoice for any transactions relating to investment precious metals (gold coins etc.); said invoice shall specify the name, year and country of issue for such coins, as well as their weight in gold and the price for fine gold on the open market on the date of delivery. (Article 98 B of the French General Tax Code, Appendix 3, - Decree no. 2000-490 of 2nd June 2000 - Art. 1, JORF [French Official Legal Gazette] 6th June 2000).




When validating the purchase of a product from the Website, the Client shall be informed of whether or not the products that he/she would like to reserve are available.

In the event of a stock shortage or if products are unavailable in the necessary quantity or category, G&F Net shall inform the Client immediately and the Client may, within the limit of available stock, purchase other products from a different category.

A summary of the products thus offered to the Client shall appear in the order summary displayed on screen.

However, given the strong demand for precious metal type products and market fluctuations, payment by bank transfer or bankers' draft shall be subject to verification of the availability of funds. In these circumstances, G&F NET cannot guarantee the availability of products between the date on which they are ordered from the Website and the verification of funds (depending on the payment method) following which products can be delivered to the Client.
