The CUSTOMER must choose a selected PRODUCT(s) by clicking on said PRODUCT(s) and by choosing its desired features and quantities required. Once the PRODUCT has been selected, it is placed in the CUSTOMER’s shopping cart. The CUSTOMER can then add as many PRODUCTS as they wish to their shopping cart.

5.2.2. Orders

Once the PRODUCTS have been selected and placed in the shopping cart, the CUSTOMER must click on said cart and check that its contents are correct. The CUSTOMER will then be invited to log into their account or create a new one, if they haven’t already done so. Once the CUSTOMER has verified the shopping cart’s contents and that they are connected/have created a new account, an automatically filled-out form will be displayed with a summary of the price, applicable taxes and, if applicable, delivery fees.

Regardless of the ordering or payment method, the CUSTOMER shall be provided the original invoice inside their package upon DELIVERY of the PRODUCTS.

Article 5.3. Date of the Order

Upon the CUSTOMER’s request, the VENDOR may:

either offer to ship all PRODUCTS at the same time once the unavailable PRODUCTS are in stock again,
or ship only a portion of the available PRODUCTS at first, followed by the rest of the order once the remaining PRODUCTS are once again available, subject to providing clear information concerning potential additional delivery fees,
or recommend an alternative PRODUCT of equal quality and price, pending the CUSTOMER’s acceptance.

In the event that the CUSTOMER decides to cancel their order of unavailable PRODUCTS, they shall be reimbursed the entire amount paid for unavailable PRODUCTS within a maximum delay of thirty (30) days following payment.

APPENDIX 1

WITHDRAWAL POLICY
Withdrawal Principle

In principle, the CUSTOMER has the right to withdraw by sending or giving back the PRODUCT to the VENDOR.

To do so, the PRODUCT must be sent or given back without undue delay and at the latest within fourteen (14) days following the communication of the decision to withdraw, unless the VENDOR suggests recovering the PRODUCT themselves.

Withdrawal Period

The withdrawal period expires fourteen (14) calendar days after the day on which the CUSTOMER, or a third party other than the carrier selected by the CUSTOMER, physically takes possession of the PRODUCT.

In the event that the CUSTOMER has ordered several PRODUCTS in a single order yielding several DELIVERIES (or in the case of a single PRODUCT delivered in several installments), the withdrawal period shall expire fourteen (14) days after the day on which the CUSTOMER, or a third party other than the carrier selected by the CUSTOMER, physically takes possession of the last delivered PRODUCT.

If the CUSTOMER’s order concerns several PRODUCTS and if these PRODUCTS are delivered separately, then the withdrawal period ends fourteen (14) days after the day on which the CUSTOMER, or a third party other than the carrier selected by the CUSTOMER, physically takes possession of the last PRODUCT.

Notification of the Right to Withdrawal

In order to apply the right to withdrawal, you must give notice of your decision of withdrawal from the present contract by means of an unambiguous declaration:

VENDOR’s telephone number*: +33 4 50 60 30 40

Upon receiving your request for withdrawal, we will send you an acknowledgment of receipt with return number that you must print and include with your package.

Return Fees

The CUSTOMER must cover all immediate fees for the PRODUCT’S return.

State of the Returned Product

The PRODUCT must be returned as specified by the VENDOR and must include all delivered accessories.
The CUSTOMER’s responsibility shall be committed only insofar as the PRODUCT’S worth has been depreciated as a result of its handling in any other way than necessary to establish its nature, features and effective operation. In other words, the CUSTOMER may try the PRODUCT (for example, to check its size without any undue physical effort), but their responsibility may be committed if they engage in handling other than that which is necessary, since all returned PRODUCTS must be as new (as delivered).

Provision of dematerialized digital content if its execution has begun with the CONSUMER’s express prior consent, the latter of which has recognized that they would lose their right to withdrawal
