Article 5. Orders

5.1 Product Characteristics

The SELLER commits to present the essential characteristics of the PRODUCTS (on the information sheets available on the SITE) and the mandatory information that the CLIENT must receive under applicable law.

The CLIENT agrees to carefully read this information before placing an order on the SITE.

Unless expressly stated otherwise on the SITE, all PRODUCTS sold by the SELLER are new and comply with current European legislation and standards applicable in France.

5.2. Order Procedure

Orders for PRODUCTS are placed directly on the SITE. To place an order, the CLIENT must follow the steps described below (please note, however, depending on the CLIENT's start page, the steps may slightly differ).

5.2.1. Selection of PRODUCTS and purchase options

The CLIENT will need to select the PRODUCT(s) of his choice by clicking on the concerned PRODUCT(s) and choosing the desired characteristics and quantities. Once the PRODUCT is selected, it is placed in the CLIENT's basket. The latter can then add to his basket as many PRODUCTS as he wishes.

5.2.2. Orders

Once the PRODUCTS are selected and placed in his basket, the CLIENT must click on the basket and check that the contents of his order are correct. If the CLIENT has not yet done so, he will then be asked to identify or register.

Once the CLIENT has validated the contents of the basket and has identified/registered, an online form will be automatically completed and summarise the price, applicable taxes and, where applicable, delivery charges.

The CLIENT is invited to check the content of his order (including the quantity, characteristics and references of the PRODUCTS ordered, the billing address, the means of payment and the price) before validating its content.

The CLIENT can then proceed with the payment of the PRODUCTS by following the instructions on the SITE and provide all the information necessary for billing and DELIVERY of the PRODUCTS. Regarding PRODUCTS for which options are available, these specific references appear when the correct options have been selected. The orders placed must include all the information necessary for the proper processing of the order.

The CLIENT must also select the delivery method chosen.

5.2.3. Acknowledgement of Receipt

Once all the steps described above are completed, a page appears on the SITE to acknowledge receipt of the CLIENT's order. A copy of the acknowledgement of receipt of the order is automatically sent to the CLIENT by email, provided that the email address provided through the registration form is correct.

The SELLER does not send any order confirmation by postal mail or fax.

5.2.4. Invoicing

During the order process, the CLIENT will have to enter the information necessary for invoicing (the asterisk (*) will indicate the mandatory fields that must be filled out for the CLIENT's order to be processed by the SELLER).

The CLIENT must notably clearly indicate all the information related to the DELIVERY, in particular the exact DELIVERY address, as well as any possible access code to the DELIVERY address.

The CLIENT will also have to specify the means of payment chosen.

Neither the online order that the CLIENT establishes, nor the acknowledgement of receipt of the order that the SELLER sends to the CLIENT by email constitute an invoice. Regardless of the method of ordering or payment used, the CLIENT will receive the original invoice upon DELIVERY of the PRODUCTS, inside the package.

5.3. Order Date

The date of the order is the date on which the SELLER acknowledges receipt online of the order. The deadlines indicated on the SITE only start running from this date.

5.4. Price

For all PRODUCTS, the CLIENT will find on the SITE prices displayed in euros including all taxes, as well as applicable delivery charges (depending on the weight of the package, excluding packaging and gifts, the DELIVERY address and the carrier or mode of transport chosen).

The prices particularly include the value added tax (VAT) at the rate in force on the date of the order. Any change in the applicable rate may impact the price of the PRODUCTS from the date of entry into force of the new rate.

The applicable VAT rate is expressed as a percentage of the value of the PRODUCT sold.

The prices of the SELLER's suppliers are subject to change. As a result, the prices listed on the SITE may change. They may also be modified in case of special offers or sales.

The indicated prices are valid, except in case of gross error. The applicable price is that indicated on the SITE on the date when the order is placed by the CLIENT.

5.5. Availability of PRODUCTS

The unavailability of a PRODUCT is usually indicated on the page of the concerned PRODUCT. CLIENTS can also be informed of a PRODUCT's restocking by the SELLER.

In any case, if the unavailability was not indicated at the time of the order, the SELLER undertakes to inform the CLIENT without delay if the PRODUCT is unavailable.

The SELLER may, at the request of the CLIENT:

Either propose to ship all the PRODUCTS at the same time as soon as the out-of-stock PRODUCTS are available again,

Or proceed with a partial shipment of the available PRODUCTS initially, then to the shipment of the rest of the order when the other PRODUCTS will be available, subject to clear information regarding the additional transport costs that could be incurred,

Or propose an alternative PRODUCT of equivalent quality and price, accepted by the CLIENT.

If the CLIENT decides to cancel his order of unavailable PRODUCTS, he will get a refund of all the amounts paid for the unavailable PRODUCTS no later than thirty (30) days of payment.

If the CLIENT decides to cancel his order for unavailable PRODUCTS, the refund will be made in accordance with the last paragraph of article 5.5 of these General Conditions.

7.3. Delay or refusal of payment

If the bank refuses to debit a card or other payment method, the CLIENT must contact the SELLER's Customer Service to pay for the order by any other valid means of payment.

In the event that, for any reason whatsoever, opposition, refusal or otherwise, the transmission of the flow of money due by the CLIENT proves impossible, the order will be cancelled and the sale automatically terminated.

Article 8. Proof and Archiving

Any contract concluded with the CLIENT corresponding to an order of an amount exceeding 120 euros including all taxes will be archived by the SELLER for a period of ten (10) years in accordance with Article L. 134-2 of the Consumer Code.

The SELLER agrees to archive this information in order to ensure a follow-up of transactions and to produce a copy of the contract at the request of the CLIENT.

In case of dispute, the SELLER will have the possibility to prove that its electronic tracking system is reliable and guarantees the integrity of the transaction.

Article 9. Transfer of ownership

The SELLER remains the owner of the PRODUCTS delivered until their complete payment by the CLIENT.

The above provisions do not prevent the transfer to the CLIENT, at the time of receipt by him, or by a third party designated by him other than the carrier, of the risks of loss or damage to the PRODUCTS subject to the retention of ownership, as well as the risks of damage they may cause.

Article 10. Delivery

Delivery Problems

The CLIENT is informed of the delivery date set at the time he chooses the carrier, at the end of the online ordering process, before confirming the order.

It is specified that deliveries will be made within thirty (30) days maximum. Failing this, the CLIENT must put the SELLER on notice to deliver within a reasonable time and in case of non-delivery within this period, he may terminate the contract.

The SELLER will reimburse, without excessive delay from the receipt of the termination letter, to the CLIENT the total amount paid for the PRODUCTS, taxes and delivery costs included, using the same method of payment used by the CLIENT to purchase the PRODUCTS.

The SELLER is responsible until the delivery of the PRODUCT to the CLIENT. It is recalled that the CLIENT has a period of three (3) days to notify the carrier of any damage or partial losses observed at the time of delivery.

Article 11. Packaging

The PRODUCTS will be packaged in accordance with current transport standards to ensure maximum protection for the PRODUCTS during DELIVERY. The CUSTOMERS agree to respect the same standards when they return PRODUCTS under the conditions set in Article 6 - Right of Withdrawal.

Article 12. Warranties

12.1. Conformity Guarantee

Article L.217-4 of the Consumer Code: "The seller delivers goods conforming to the contract and is responsible for any conformity defects existing at the time of delivery. He is also responsible for conformity defects resulting from the packaging, assembly instructions or installation when this has been charged to him by the contract or has been carried out under his responsibility".

Article L.217-5 of the Consumer Code: "The product is in conformity with the contract: 1° If it is suitable for the use usually expected of a similar good and, if applicable: - if it corresponds to the description given by the seller and possesses the qualities that the seller has presented to the buyer in the form of a sample or model; - if it presents the qualities that a buyer can legitimately expect in view of the public statements made by the seller, the producer or his representative, notably in advertising or labeling; 2° Or if it has the characteristics defined by mutual agreement by the parties or is suitable for any special use sought by the buyer, made known to the seller and which the latter has accepted".

The SELLER is likely to be responsible for conformity defects existing at the time of delivery and conformity defects resulting from packaging, assembly instructions or installation when this has been charged to him or has been carried out under his responsibility.

The action resulting from the lack of conformity is prescribed by two (2) years from the delivery of the PRODUCT (Article L.217-12 of the Consumer Code)

In case of lack of conformity, the CLIENT may request the replacement or repair of the PRODUCT, at his choice. However, if the cost of the CLIENT's choice is obviously disproportionate to the other possible option, considering the value of the PRODUCT or the importance of the defect, the SELLER may proceed to a refund, without following the option chosen by the Client.

In the event that a replacement or repair would be impossible, the SELLER undertakes to return the price of the PRODUCT within thirty (30) days upon receipt of the returned PRODUCT and in exchange for the return of the PRODUCT by the CLIENT at the following address: 17 RUE DE BREY 75017 PARIS.

Finally, the CLIENT is exempted from proving the existence of the PRODUCT's lack of conformity during the twenty-four (24) months following the delivery of the PRODUCT except for second-hand goods for which this period is set at six (6) months. (Article L.217-7 of the Consumer Code).

It is specified that this legal warranty of conformity applies regardless of the commercial warranty granted, if any, on the PRODUCTS.

12.2. Hidden Defects Warranty

The SELLER is bound by the warranty due to the hidden defects of the PRODUCT sold that make it unfit for the use for which it is intended, or that decrease this use so much that the CLIENT would not have acquired it, or would have given a lower price, if he had known them. (Article 1641 of the Civil Code)

This warranty allows the CLIENT who can prove the existence of a hidden defect to choose between the refund of the price of the PRODUCT if it is returned and the refund of a part of its price if the PRODUCT is not returned.

In the event that a replacement or repair would be impossible, the SELLER undertakes to return the price of the PRODUCT within thirty (30) days upon receipt of the returned PRODUCT and in exchange for the return of the PRODUCT by the CLIENT at the following address: 17 RUE DE BREY 75017 PARIS. The action resulting from the redhibitory vices must be brought by the CLIENT within a period of two (2) years from the discovery of the vice. (Paragraph 1 of Article 1648 of the Civil Code)

Article 13. Liability

The SELLER's liability cannot in any case be engaged in the event of non-performance or poor performance of the contractual obligations attributable to the CLIENT, in particular when entering his order.

The SELLER cannot be held liable, or considered as having failed hereunder, for any delay or non-performance, when the cause of the delay or non-performance is related to a case of force majeure as defined by the case law of the French courts and Tribunals.

It is also specified that the SELLER does not control the websites that are directly or indirectly linked to the SITE. Consequently, it excludes all liability for the information published therein. The links to third party websites are provided only as a convenience and no guarantee is provided as to their content.

Article 14. Force Majeure

The SELLER's liability cannot be implemented if the non-performance or delay in the performance of one of its obligations described in these GTC results from a case of force majeure.

There is force majeure in contractual matters when an event beyond the debtor's control, which could not reasonably have been foreseen at the time of the conclusion of the contract and whose effects cannot be avoided by appropriate measures, prevents the performance of his obligation by the debtor.

If the impediment is temporary, the performance of the obligation is suspended unless the delay resulting therefrom justifies the termination of the contract. If the impediment is definitive, the contract is automatically terminated and the parties are released from their obligations under the conditions provided for in Articles 1351 and 1351-1 of the Civil Code.

In this respect, the SELLER's liability cannot be engaged in particular in the event of an attack by computer hackers, unavailability of materials, supplies, spare parts, personal equipment or other, interruption of electronic communications networks, as well as in the event of the occurrence of any circumstance or event external to the SELLER's will occurring after the conclusion of the GTC and preventing performance under normal conditions.

It is specified that in such a situation, the CLIENT cannot claim the payment of any compensation and cannot bring any action against the SELLER.

In the event of the occurrence of one of the above-mentioned events, the SELLER will endeavor to inform the CLIENT as soon as possible.
