Article 2 - ONLINE CONTRACTING (Articles 1369-4 and 1125 to 1127 of the Civil Code)

 

The sales contract between the buyer and the seller is concluded when the latter validates his order at the end of the selection process of the product (s) he has chosen.

 

To buy one or more products on the site, the Customer selects each product and adds it to his basket. Once their selection is complete, they must confirm their basket to place the Order (first click).

 

At this stage, the Customer is redirected to a page containing a summary of the selected products, the corresponding prices, terms and delivery costs. It is then up to him to check and possibly correct the contents of his basket.  It is up to him to read these T & Cs carefully before validating the entire Order.

 

This validation of the Order after checking the basket and reading the T & Cs (second click) constitutes conclusion of the Contract and the Customer acknowledges that the second click entails an obligation to pay on his part.

 

The Customer is then redirected to the payment page. He can choose between the different payment methods offered and proceeds to the payment of his Order.

 

After validating his Order and making his payment, the Customer receives, on the email address he provided to create his account, a confirmation message from the supplier. This message contains, in PDF format:

 

- The summary of his order (selected product, price, terms and delivery costs);

- The precise identification of the supplier and his activity;

- The Order number;

- The terms, conditions and withdrawal form;

- These GTC in PDF format.

 

In the event of non-receipt of the Order confirmation, the Customer is recommended to contact the supplier via the contact form on the site.   

 

The Customer then receives a purchase invoice transmitted in electronic form, which the Customer expressly accepts.

 

The Customer is advised to keep this confirmation message and the purchase invoice which is also sent to him in electronic format since these documents can be produced as proof of the Contract.

 

The supplier reserves the right to refuse any Order for any legitimate reason, including for example:

 

- Order not in accordance with the GTC;

- Quantities ordered that do not correspond to normal use by a private individual;

- Suspicion of fraud on the Order.

 

 

Article 3 - INFORMATION ON THE CHARACTERISTICS AND AVAILABILITY OF PRODUCTS

 

The Customer is informed in French on the site of the essential characteristics of the goods and their price as well as the conditions of use of the product.

 

The customer accepts that the illustrations, videos or photos of the products presented for sale have no contractual value.

 

The period of validity of the pricing conditions for the sale of products and their availability is specified on the website.

 

The products are available within the limits of supplier stocks. This product availability is normally indicated on the specific product page.

 

In the event that a product becomes unavailable after validation of the Order, the supplier immediately informs it by email. His Order is automatically canceled and the supplier reimburses the full price paid.

 

However, if the Order contains other products than the one that has become unavailable, these will be delivered to the Customer and the delivery costs will not be reimbursed.

 

 

Article 4 - PRICE OF PRODUCTS

 

It is the one mentioned on the site when the Order is validated.

 

It can be modified at any time and without notice

 

It does not include the costs of shipping, transporting and delivering the products to the delivery address.

 

VAT - CUSTOMS DUTIES AND SIMILAR:

 

The products ordered by the Customers being imported from countries outside the European Union and the sale being carried out under the conditions of "delivery on departure", their price is indicated in Euros excluding VAT and customs duties.

 

The price of the products does not include import VAT, import taxes or customs duties, which must be paid in addition and are the responsibility of the Customer.

 

The Customer is solely liable for import VAT during customs clearance of the product may be required to pay import VAT.

 

For all products shipped from a country outside the European Union, customs duties or other taxes or duties may be payable which are the responsibility of the Customer.

 

Indeed, during his purchase, the Customer is the importer of the product purchased in his capacity as recipient of the product.

 

He is therefore in particular responsible for the import and customs clearance process of the product at the local customs offices. Depending on the price of his order, he may be asked to pay customs duties (for products with a customs value greater than € 150).

 

The Customer alone is liable for customs duties during customs clearance of the product as the actual recipient of the goods. These customs duties, which are not invoiced to the Customer by the supplier, are not the responsibility of the supplier. The latter can therefore not be held liable for the reimbursement of these rights.

 

The Customer is invited to obtain information on these aspects from the competent tax and customs authorities before placing an order.

 

 

Article 5 - TERMS OF PAYMENT

 

Payment for the Order is made in cash after validation of the Order.

 

Several payment methods are offered to the Customer:

 

Payment by bank cards attached to a banking establishment located in France or by international bank cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Maestro). The Customer certifies that he is the holder of the authorizations necessary to pay with the bank card used. He expressly acknowledges that the communication of his bank card number constitutes irrevocable authorization to debit his account for the price of the products ordered. The amount will be debited at the time of validation of the Order.

 

Payments by credit card are made via a secure payment platform and the information on the bank cards communicated benefits from the SSL encryption process.

 

Payment by Paypal within the limit of one thousand Euros (1,000 €). It is emphasized that in the event of recourse to this method of payment, the General Conditions of Use of Paypal are added to these T & Cs.

 

Payment by vouchers and / or promo codes : The vouchers and / or promotional codes issued by the supplier can be used to pay for all or part of the Order. In the event of an attempt to fraudulently use the vouchers and / or promotional codes, the supplier may proceed with the outright cancellation of the Order.

 

In the event of refusal of payment by officially accredited bodies or in the event of non-payment of the Order, the supplier reserves the right to cancel said Order.

 

The supplier reserves the right to suspend any of the payment methods at any time, in particular in the event that a payment service provider no longer offers its services.

 

The supplier reserves the right to ensure that no one is illegally using a third party's bank card without their knowledge. For this purpose, he may ask the Customer for a copy of his identity document, proof of address as well as a copy of the bank card used for payment while respecting data confidentiality. The order will only be validated after receipt and verification of the documents sent.

 

 

 

Article 6 - DELIVERY

 

Before the validation of the Order, the supplier communicates to the Customer information concerning the various delivery methods as well as their respective costs and deadlines.
