V – Cancellation letter generation service

Selectra SARL offers a letter generation service available at, known as the "generation service". The users must pay attention to fill in the required information with accuracy and precision (including personal information). By using the generation service, the user accepts that his/her information be saved by the service (see Chapter VII). The response "Yes" to the question "Do you wish to receive more information about the best offers?", indicates authorization for the Editor to contact the user by email or by telephone for marketing purposes.

The user of the generation service may also take advantage of an electronic mailing service of the cancellation letter by registered post. For the purposes of this chapter, the "Principal" refers to the User that has validated the generation service to send the Online Registered Post and the “Service” refers to the service of sending the Online Registered Post by the generation service.

This optional service is offered by Selectra SARL in partnership with MAILEVA (subsidiary of the La Poste group), which commercializes the service of Online Registered Post (Lettre Recommandée En Ligne - LREL). MAILEVA is the technical service provider that prints, packages, envelopes, and sends the User’s mail. Use of the Online Registered Post service implies that the Principal mandates Selectra SARL to send mail on the User’s behalf. The Online Registered Post is delivered by a postal worker and the delivery receipt is sent to Selectra in electronic form. Selectra commits itself to making available the Principal’s delivery receipt for at least one (1) year, starting from the date the Online Registered Post was sent. The Principal may request a copy of the delivery receipt by sending an email to ventes <AT> in which the number associated with the command is clearly mentioned. The generation service indicates the command number to the Principal once the Online Registered Post is sent. This number is also sent to the email address that the Principal has indicated.

Use of this service requires a payment of 7,69€ (taxes included). Payment is by credit card through a secure online payment space hosted by PayPal, which is the payment provider chosen by Selectra. At no moment does Selectra have access to the Principal’s payment details. Payment confirmation automatically activates the sending of mail to Maileva/La Poste, and cannot be cancelled after the event. Use of the Online Registered Post service waives the right of withdrawal before expiry of the statutory period of fourteen (14) days as provided for in Article L121-21-8 (paragraph 1) of the Consumer Code.

As part of a commercial offer, the Editor may offer the Client the opportunity to subscribe to a new energy or telecommunications contract upon sending the Online Registered Post. Provided that subscription to the energy or telecommunications contract is carried out and validated by Selectra SARL, the fee associated with sending the Online Registered Post may be waived. In this case the client will receive a link via email that will allow for the Online Registered Post to be sent for free. This offer is limited to one free service cancellation per client, even in the event that the client subscribes to multiple contracts through Selectra SARL. As a reminder, Selectra SARL manages contract subscriptions only with the energy or telecommunications providers with which the company has commercial relations.

The Principal remains solely responsible for meeting the service obligations of his/her chosen energy and/or telecommunications provider, in accordance with the general terms and conditions agreed to when the contract with the supplier was signed. When appropriate, the Principal is responsible for any cancellation fees that the supplier may charge. The Principal may not request reimbursement for the delivery of the cancellation letter.
