Article 4 – ORDERS
The Operator strives to guarantee optimum availability of its Products. Product offers are valid within the limits of available stocks.
If, despite the best efforts of the Operator, a Product proves to be unavailable after the Customer's order, the Operator will inform the Customer by email, as soon as possible and the Customer will have the choice between:
- the delivery of a Product of a quality and price equivalent to that initially ordered, or
- reimbursement of the price of the Product ordered at the latest within thirty (30) days of payment of the sums already paid.
It is agreed that apart from reimbursement of the price of the unavailable Product, if this option is requested by the Customer, the Operator is not bound to any cancellation compensation, unless the non-performance of the contract is personally attributable to him.
With the exception of any mention to the contrary appearing in these General Conditions and without prejudice to the right of withdrawal provided for by applicable law, the Customer's orders are firm and final.
When placing an order, the Customer must select the chosen Products, add them to his basket, indicating the selected Products and the desired quantities. The Customer has the possibility to check the details of his order and its total price, and to return to the previous pages to possibly correct the contents of his basket, before validating it.
The Customer undertakes to read the General Conditions of Sale then in force before accepting them and to confirm the terms and any costs of delivery and withdrawal prior to payment of his order. Confirmation of the order entails acceptance of the T&Cs and forms the contract.
A copy of these General Conditions as accepted by the Customer will be sent to the Customer by e-mail at the time of confirmation of his Order so that the latter can refer to it.
The contractual information relating to the order (including in particular the order number) will be confirmed by e-mail in good time and at the latest at the time of delivery. The Operator strongly advises the Customer to print and/or archive this order confirmation on a reliable and durable medium as proof. A digital invoice is made available to the Customer in the "my account" space. The Operator also advises the Customer to print and/or archive this invoice on a reliable and durable medium as proof.
Any email that will be sent to the Customer as part of an order will be sent to the email address that the Customer uses to identify himself in his customer area.
The Operator reserves the right not to validate the Customer's order for any legitimate reason, in particular in the event that:
- The Customer does not respect the General Conditions in force when ordering;
- The Customer's order history shows that sums remain due under previous orders;
- One of the Customer's previous orders is the subject of a dispute being processed;
- The Customer did not respond to a request for confirmation of his order sent to him by the Operator.
The Operator archives the contracts for the sale of Products in accordance with the applicable legislation. By making a request to the following address email@example.com , the Operator will give the Customer a copy of the contract subject of the request.
Any modification of the order by the Customer after confirmation of his order is subject to the agreement of the Operator.

The Customer declares to have the full legal capacity allowing him to engage under these General Conditions.

Registration is strictly personal to each Client.
In the event of a breach by the Customer of one of the provisions hereof, the Operator reserves the right to terminate the said Customer's account without notice.
Article 5 – TERMS OF PAYMENT AND SECURITY
The Customer expressly acknowledges that any order made on the Site is an order with payment obligation, which requires the payment of a price against the supply of the Product ordered.
In any case, the Operator reserves the right to check the validity of the payment, before the dispatch of the order, by all necessary means.
The Operator uses the Stripe online payment solution .
Orders can be paid for using one of the following payment methods:
- Payment by credit card. Payment is made directly on the secure banking servers of the Operator's bank, the Customer's bank details do not pass through the Site. The bank details provided during payment are protected by an SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption process. In this way, these coordinates are not accessible to third parties.
The Customer's order is recorded and validated upon acceptance of payment by the bank.
The Customer's account will be debited with the corresponding amount only when (i) the details of the bank card used have been verified and (ii) the debit has been accepted by the bank that issued the bank card.
The impossibility of debiting the sums due will result in the immediate nullity of the sale.
The credit card may in particular be refused if it has expired, if it has reached the maximum amount of expenditure to which the Customer is entitled or if the data entered is incorrect.
- Payment by electronic wallet (Paypal type). The Client already has an account on the electronic wallet used by the Operator. The Customer can use this account and pay for his order securely without communicating his bank details.
If necessary, the order validated by the Customer will only be considered effective when the secure bank payment center has given its agreement to the transaction.
As part of the control procedures, the Operator may have to ask the Customer for all the documents necessary to finalize his order. These parts will not be used for any purpose other than these.
Article 6 – PAYMENT OF THE PRICE
The price of the Products in force at the time of the order is indicated in euros all taxes included (TTC) excluding delivery and transport costs. In the event of a promotion, the Operator undertakes to apply the promotional price to any order placed during the advertising period for the promotion.

Article 7 – FORMATION OF THE CONTRACT
The contract between the Operator and the Customer is formed when the Customer sends the confirmation of his order.
The Customer's attention is particularly drawn to the method of acceptance of the order placed on the Site. When the Customer places his order, he must confirm it by the "double-click" technique, i.e. after having selected the Products added to the basket, the Customer must check and possibly correct the content of his basket (identification, quantity of products selected, price, terms and delivery costs) before validating it by clicking on "I validate my delivery", then he acknowledges accepting these T&Cs before clicking on the "I pay" button, finally he validates his order after having filled in his bank details. The "double click" is equivalent to an electronic signature and is equivalent to a handwritten signature. It constitutes an irrevocable and unreserved acceptance of the order by the Customer.
The archiving of communications, purchase orders and invoices is ensured by the Operator on a reliable and durable medium so as to constitute a faithful and durable copy. These communications, purchase orders and invoices can be produced as proof of the contract. Unless proven otherwise, the data recorded by the Operator on the Internet or by telephone constitutes proof of all transactions between the Operator and its Customers.
The order can be canceled by the Customer by registered letter with acknowledgment of receipt or in writing on another durable medium in the event of:
- delivery of a Product that does not conform to the declared characteristics of the Product;
- delivery exceeding the deadline set in the order form or, failing such a date, within thirty (30) days following the conclusion of the contract, after the Operator has been ordered, under the same terms and without result, to make the delivery within a reasonable additional time;
- price increase that is not justified by a technical modification of the product imposed by the public authorities.
In all these cases, the Customer may demand reimbursement of the deposit paid plus interest calculated at the legal rate from the date of receipt of the deposit.
The order can be resolved by the Operator in the event of:
- the buyer's refusal to take delivery;
- non-payment of the price (or the balance of the price) at the time of delivery.
