Presentation

The Products are presented on the Site using a "technical sheet" indicating their essential characteristics and one or more photographs. This information is that provided to the Seller by its suppliers.

Nevertheless, in the event of unavailability while the Customer's account has been debited, the Seller shall, at the Customer's option, either exchange with a Product of equivalent quality and/or price, within the limits of available stocks, or refund, at the latest within 30 days of payment, the sums it has paid for the order of the Product concerned.

The Customer must indicate all the information necessary for delivery, namely the precise delivery address, a telephone number on which the Customer can be contacted at the time of delivery, as well as any restrictions on the accessibility of the place of delivery in accordance with the article below entitled "Mandatory information necessary for the preparation of the delivery".

If the availability of the Products is not validated, the Seller shall inform the Customer as soon as possible by e-mail and shall propose, at the Customer's option, either to be delivered a Product of equivalent quality and/or price, within the limits of available stocks, or to be refunded the price of the Product ordered within a maximum period of 30 clear days from the date of his order if his account has been charged.

The date of the order is the date of validation of the order by the Customer in the case of online payment by credit card or the date of receipt of the check or transfer.

The Seller reserves the right to refuse any order from a Customer with whom it exists at the time of the order or it would appear, during the processing of the order, a dispute of any nature with the Seller, in particular regarding the payment of a previous order.

THE PAYMENT

Payment of the price

The price invoiced to the Customer is the price indicated on the order confirmation sent by the Seller by e-mail, payable in cash on the day of the order, in particular by the following different means of payment:

- Credit cards: BLUE, VISA, EUROCARD, MASTERCARD;

- PAYPAL;

- Bank transfer (the data necessary for the transfer are provided on the Site after the validation of the order by the Customer).

For an order by e-mail or telephone, payment by credit card is also available. Payment by other means must be received by the Seller within a maximum of 7 clear days following the confirmation of the Customer's order by the Seller. At the end of this period, the order is automatically cancelled, unless otherwise agreed by the Seller.

The Seller reserves the right to refuse to make a delivery or to honour an order, to suspend or close the account of a Customer with whom a dispute, in particular a payment dispute, is in progress or for whom fraud is suspected.

Secure payment

For payment by credit card, the security and confidentiality of the data transmitted are ensured by the LCL or PAYPAL secure payment system. Once the information has been verified by the bank and the payment has been made, it is destroyed. With each new order, the information related to credit cards is therefore requested again.

The order validated by the Customer is only considered effective when the payment centres have given their agreement. In the event of refusal, the order will be automatically cancelled and the Customer informed by e-mail.

The data recorded by payment systems constitute proof of financial transactions. In order to keep a record of the transaction, it is recommended that the Customer save or print the summary ticket containing the essential information of the transaction (amount, date and time, authorization number) and generated by the LCL or PAYPAL servers.

The Customer guarantees that he is fully entitled to use the payment card used to pay for his order and that this card gives access to sufficient funds to cover the entire amount of his order.

Delay or non-payment

In the event of a bank's refusal to accept a credit card debit, a refusal to cash a cheque or a transfer anomaly, the Customer undertakes to pay the Seller as soon as possible for his order by any other means of payment accepted by the Seller.

DELIVERY

Prerequisite for the preparation of the delivery

The preparation of the delivery can only start when the availability of the Product(s) is validated and when payment is accepted, i.e. 3 working days after receipt of an order for payment by credit card and after receipt and acceptance by the bank for any other payment method.

Any omission or error affecting the delivery address, the conditions of accessibility of the place, the telephone number provided by the Customer or any other problem attributable to the Customer and leading to the need to make a new delivery may be invoiced additionally for a new delivery at the expense of the Customer. In addition, the Seller shall not, under these conditions, be held liable for the impossibility of delivering the order within the time limits mentioned in the article below entitled "Delivery times".
