If the purchased Product requires an active contribution from the User, such as the provision of information or personal data, specifications, or special requests, the placing of the order also constitutes an obligation on the User to cooperate accordingly.
Once the order has been placed, Users will be sent a confirmation of receipt of the order.
All notifications relating to the purchase procedure described above will be sent to the e-mail address provided by the User for this purpose.

Prices
During the purchase process and before placing the order, Users are duly informed of all commissions, taxes, and costs (including any shipping costs) that will be charged to them.

The Holder may offer special discounts or promotions for the purchase of Products. Such promotions or discounts are always subject to the requirements and terms and conditions set out in the relevant section of this Website.

Who enjoys the right of withdrawal?
Unless one of the exceptions listed below applies, Users acting as European Consumers have by law the right to withdraw from contracts concluded online (distance contracts) within the period specified below for any reason and without the need for justification.

Users who do not meet these requirements do not enjoy the rights described in this section.

Exercise of the right of withdrawal
To exercise the right of withdrawal, the User must send the Controller an unequivocal notice of his intention to withdraw from the contract.

For this purpose, the User may use the standard withdrawal form available in the definitions section of this document. However, the User can express his intention to withdraw from the contract in any other suitable form. To comply with the period within which the right must be exercised, the User must send the withdrawal declaration before the end of the withdrawal period.

When does the withdrawal period expire?

In the case of the purchase of goods, the withdrawal period expires after 14 days from the day on which the User or a third party – other than the courier – takes possession of the goods.
In the case of the purchase of several goods ordered together but delivered separately, or in the case of the purchase of a single good consisting of several lots or pieces delivered separately, the withdrawal period shall expire after 14 days from the day on which the User or a third party – appointed by the User and other than the carrier – takes possession of the last of the goods, lots or pieces.
Effects of withdrawal
The Holder shall reimburse all payments received including, if any, those relating to delivery costs to Users who have correctly exercised their right of withdrawal.

However, the higher cost resulting from the choice of a particular delivery method other than the cheapest standard delivery offered by the Controller shall be borne by the User.

The refund shall be made without undue delay and in any event within 14 days from the day on which the Holder was informed of the User’s decision to withdraw from the contract. Unless otherwise agreed with the User, the refund is made using the same means of payment as was used for the initial transaction. The User shall not incur any costs as a consequence of the withdrawal.

… on contracts for the purchase of tangible goods

Unless the Holder has offered to collect the goods, the User shall return them to the Holder or to another person authorized by the Holder to receive them without undue delay and in any event within 14 days of the day on which he communicated his intention to withdraw from the contract.

The deadline is met if the delivery of the goods to the courier or other authorized person takes place before the expiry of the 14 days described above. The refund may be withheld until receipt of the goods or until the User has provided proof of return.

The User shall be liable for any diminution in the value of the goods resulting from the use of the goods other than what is necessary to establish their nature, characteristics, and functioning.

The return shipping costs shall be borne by the User.

Legal Warranty of Product Conformity
According to European legislation, the seller guarantees the conformity of the goods sold for a minimum period of 2 years after delivery. Therefore, the seller is obliged to ensure that the goods purchased have the quality, functionality, or characteristics promised or reasonably foreseeable for at least two years from the time of delivery to the buyer.

Where Users act as European Consumers, the legal guarantee of conformity of goods applies to items available on this Web Site by the laws of the country in which they normally reside.

The national laws of that country may grant such Users broader rights.

Consumers who are not acting as European Consumers may have conformity guarantee rights under the law of the country in which they normally reside.

Limitation of liability

This limitation of liability section shall apply to the fullest extent permitted by law in the applicable jurisdiction, regardless of whether the alleged liability arises in contract, tort, negligence, strict liability, or any other basis, even if the Owner has been advised of the possibility of such damage occurring. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of collateral and consequential damages, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you.
