The Operator strongly advises the Customer to print and/or archive this order confirmation on a reliable and durable medium as proof.

In all circumstances, the Operator reserves the right to check the validity of the payment before shipping the order, by any means it chooses.
The Operator uses Stripe, PayPal and ApplePay online payment solutions.
Orders can be paid for using one of the following payment methods:
- Credit card payment. Payment is made directly on the secure bank servers of the Operator's bank; the Customer's bank details never pass through the Site. The bank details given at the time of payment are protected by an SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption process. Therefore, these details are not accessible to third parties.
The Customer's order is registered and validated as soon as the payment is accepted by the bank.
The Customer's account will only be debited by the relevant amount once (i) the details of the credit card used have been verified and (ii) the debit has been accepted by the bank that issued the credit card.
Any inability to debit the amounts due will result in the immediate cancellation of the sale.
Notably, the credit card may be refused if it has expired, if it has reached the Customer’s expenditure limit or if the data entered is incorrect.
- Electronic wallet payments (including Paypal and ApplePay). When the Customer already has an account with the e-wallet provider used by the Operator. The Customer can use this account and pay for his/her order in complete security without disclosing his/her bank details.
Where applicable, the order submitted by the Customer will only be considered effective when the secure bank payment centre has cleared the transaction.
As part of the verification procedures, the Operator may need to ask the Customer for all the documents necessary to finalise the order. These documents will not be used for any other purpose.
Article 7 – PAYMENT
The price of the Products applicable at the time of ordering is stated in euros including VAT but excluding delivery and shipping costs. When the Site features a promotion, the Operator undertakes to apply promotional prices to any order placed during the period in which the promotion is advertised.
The price is payable in euros (€) or US dollars ($). The price is payable in full after confirmation of the order. The prices quoted include any discounts and rebates that the Operator may grant.
If delivery or shipping costs apply, they will be added to the price of the Products and displayed separately before the Customer confirms the order. The total amount due by the Customer and its details are shown on the order confirmation page.
Article 8 – CONTRACT FORMATION
The contract between the Operator and the Customer is formed when the Customer sends the order confirmation.
The Customer's attention is drawn to the method of acceptance of orders placed on the Site. When the Customer places an order, he/she must confirm it using the "two click" procedure, i.e. after selecting the Products to be added to the basket, the Customer must then check and, if necessary, correct the contents of his/her basket (choice and quantity of products, price, shipping methods and costs) before submitting it by clicking on "confirm delivery". The Customer then acknowledges acceptance of these GTC before clicking on the "Pay" button. Lastly, the Customer submits the order after having filled in his/her bank details. The "two click" procedure is an electronic signature and is equivalent to a handwritten signature. It signifies irrevocable and unconditional acceptance of the order by the Customer.
Communications, purchase orders and invoices are archived by the Operator on a reliable and durable medium so as to constitute a faithful and durable copy. These communications, purchase orders and invoices may be produced as proof of the contract. In the absence of proof to the contrary, the data collected by the Operator on the Internet or by telephone constitutes proof of all transactions between the Operator and its Customers.
The order may be cancelled by the Customer by registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt or in writing on another durable medium if:
- a Product that does not comply with the Product features as stated of the Site is delivered;
- delivery exceeds the deadline as stated in the purchase order or, if no deadline is stated, within thirty (30) days of entering into the contract, after the Operator has been requested, using the same methods and without result, to make the delivery within a reasonable extension period;
- a price increase occurs that is not justified by a technical change to the product imposed by the public authorities.
In all these cases, the Customer may ask for a refund of the deposit paid plus interest calculated at the legal rate from the date of payment of the deposit.
The order may be cancelled by the Operator if:
- the purchaser refuses delivery;
- the price (or the balance of the price) is unpaid at the time of delivery.
Article 9 – RETENTION OF TITLE
The Operator remains the sole owner of the Products ordered on the Site until the full price has been paid, including any shipping costs.
Article 10 – SHIPPING AND DELIVERY
The goods offered for sale on the Site are available to consumers residing in France, in the European Union and outside the European Union.
Delivery means the transfer to the Customer of physical possession or control of the Product.
The Operator provides various delivery methods depending on the nature of the product: DHL express, Colissimo or delivery to parcel pick-up points.
Shipping costs are those stated when the order is finalised and are considered as accepted when the order is submitted.
In accordance with the delivery deadline indicated on the Site for each of the Products, the Operator undertakes to deliver the Products within a maximum of thirty (30) days after receiving the order.
Delivery times are stated in working days on the Site at the time of ordering. These times include preparation and dispatch of the order as well as the shipment time required by the carrier.
The Operator undertakes to dispatch the Products in accordance with the deadlines stated on each Product data sheet and in the shopping cart, provided that payment has not been previously refused.
However, if one or more Products could not be delivered within the deadline initially stated, the Operator will send an email indicating the new delivery date to the Customer.
The Products will be delivered to the address entered by the Customer when ordering. It is therefore up to the Customer to check that this address is free of any errors. The Operator cannot be held liable if the address provided by the Customer is incorrect, thus preventing or delaying delivery.
On delivery, the Customer may be asked to sign a receipt.
No delivery will be made to a PO box.
On delivery, it is the Customer's responsibility to check that the Products delivered match the order and that the package is sealed and undamaged. If this is not the case, the Customer must record this on the delivery note. No complaints regarding the quantity or condition of the Product will be accepted if the claim has not been recorded on the delivery note.
For orders shipped outside of the European Union, customs fees may be applied by the carrier according to the local legislation in force. It is the customer's responsibility to be aware of the formalities in the territory concerned and to pay these charges if necessary.
Article 11 – RIGHT OF WITHDRAWAL
If the Customer is not completely satisfied with a delivered Product, he/she may return it to the Operator without stating a reason. The Customer shall have fourteen (14) days to do so from the date of receipt of the order.

Where applicable, the Customer may implement his/her right of withdrawal by notifying the following information to the Operator:
- name, physical address, telephone number and e-mail address ;
- the decision to withdraw worded unambiguously (e.g. by postal letter, fax or e-mail provided that these contact details are stated and therefore appear on the standard withdrawal form). The Customer may use the standard withdrawal form, but this is not obligatory.
The return shipping costs shall be borne by the Customer, unless the goods cannot normally be returned by post, in which case the Operator shall collect the goods at its expense.
The exceptions of article L.221-28 of the Consumer Code apply and prevent the exercise of the right of withdrawal, notably where the order is a contract for the provision of:
- goods likely to deteriorate or expire quickly;
- goods which have been unsealed by the consumer after delivery and which cannot be returned for reasons of hygiene or health protection;
- goods which, once delivered and by definition, form an inseparable part of other items;

The Operator will refund the amount paid for the Product to the Customer within fourteen (14) days of receipt of the Product and all the details required to successfully refund the Customer. This refund may be made by the same means of payment as that used for the Customer. In this respect, Customers who have paid for their orders using a credit note / gift voucher may be reimbursed using credit notes / gift vouchers at the Operator's discretion.
By accepting these General Terms and Conditions of Sale, the Customer expressly acknowledges that he/she has been informed of the withdrawal procedures.

However, the seller may not proceed according to the buyer's choice if this choice entails a cost which is clearly disproportionate to the other method, taking into account the value of the goods or the importance of the defect.

"An action resulting from a defect is time-barred two years from the delivery of the goods. "
Art. 1641 of the Civil Code:

Art. 1648 paragraph 1 of the Civil Code:
“The action resulting from redhibitory vices must be brought by the buyer within a period of two years following the discovery of the vice"
