7.2. Right of withdrawal - Distance selling
The present article 7.2 is applicable to the Customer who is a consumer as defined in the first article of the French Consumer Code.
7.2.1. Conditions for exercising the right of withdrawal
In accordance with the legislation in force concerning distance selling, the Customer has a period of fourteen clear days to exercise his right of withdrawal without having to justify his reasons or pay any penalties, with the exception, where applicable, of the cost of return.
The period mentioned in the previous paragraph runs from either the day on which the distance contract is concluded for contracts relating to the provision of a service and/or the provision of digital content not provided on a physical medium, or from the receipt of the goods by the Customer or a third party, other than the carrier, designated by him, for contracts for the sale of goods and contracts for the provision of services including the delivery of goods.
In the case of an order for multiple goods delivered separately or in the case of an order for a good composed of multiple lots or parts, the delivery of which is staggered over a defined period of time, the time period shall run from receipt of the last good or lot or part. For contracts providing for regular delivery of goods over a defined period of time, the period shall run from receipt of the first good.
If the fourteen-day period expires on a Saturday, Sunday or public holiday, it shall be extended to the next working day.
The decision to withdraw from the contract must be notified to the Publisher at the address indicated in article 1 of these general conditions by means of an unambiguous statement. The Customer may, for example, use the standard form provided at the end of these terms and conditions. In any case, the Publisher will send the Customer an acknowledgement of receipt of the said withdrawal by e-mail as soon as possible.
7.2.2. Effects of the right of withdrawal
The Customer shall return or restitute the products to the Professional or to any person designated by the latter, without undue delay and, at the latest, within fourteen days following the communication of his decision to withdraw.
When the right of withdrawal is exercised, the trader is obliged to reimburse the Customer for the totality of the sums paid, as soon as possible and at the latest within fourteen days of the date on which this right was exercised. Where applicable, the Professional may defer the refund until the Products are recovered or until the Customer has provided proof of shipment of the Products, whichever is sooner. Beyond that time, the sum due shall automatically bear interest at the legal rate in force, as specified in Article L. 242-4 of the French Consumer Code.
Where applicable, the Professional shall make the refund using the same means of payment as the one used by the Customer for the initial transaction, unless the Customer expressly agrees to the use of another means of payment and insofar as the refund does not incur any costs for the Customer. However, the Professional is not obliged to reimburse additional costs if the Customer has expressly chosen a delivery method that is more expensive than the standard delivery method offered.
The direct costs of returning the Product shall be borne by the Customer. These costs are estimated at a maximum of 5 euros if, due to its nature, the Product cannot normally be returned by post.
The Customer shall only be liable for the depreciation of the Product resulting from handling other than that necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and proper functioning of the Product.
The conditions, deadlines and procedures for exercising the right of withdrawal are set out in the standard form provided at the end of these general conditions.
7.2.3. Exclusions from the right of withdrawal
The right of withdrawal does not apply, in particular, to contracts :
supply of services fully executed before the end of the withdrawal period and whose execution has begun after prior express agreement of the Customer and express waiver of his right of withdrawal;
supply of goods made to the Customer's specifications or clearly personalized;
the supply of goods that are likely to deteriorate or expire rapidly;
supply of goods that have been unsealed by the Customer after delivery and that cannot be returned for reasons of hygiene or health protection;
the supply of goods which, after delivery and by their nature, are inseparably mixed with other articles;
the supply of alcoholic beverages whose delivery is delayed beyond thirty days and whose value agreed upon at the conclusion of the contract depends on fluctuations in the market beyond the control of the trader;
maintenance or repair work to be carried out urgently at the Customer's home and expressly requested by him, within the limit of spare parts and work strictly necessary to meet the emergency;
supply of audio or video recordings or computer software when they have been unsealed by the Customer after delivery;
supply of a newspaper, periodical or magazine, except for subscription contracts for these publications;
concluded during a public auction;
the provision of accommodation services, other than residential accommodation, transportation services, car rentals, catering or leisure activities that are to be provided on a specific date or at a specific time;
the supply of digital content not provided on a physical medium, the execution of which has begun after the Customer's prior express agreement and express waiver of his right of withdrawal.
Similarly, the right of withdrawal is not applicable to contracts executed in full by both parties at the express request of the Customer before the latter exercises his right of withdrawal.
When validating the order of a digital content independent of any material support before the expiration of the withdrawal period, the waiver of the Customer's right of withdrawal will be manifested by checking the box corresponding to the following sentence: "I expressly waive my right of withdrawal of 14 days for the Products delivered". The Customer will then receive a confirmation by email of his waiver of the right of withdrawal.
When validating the order for a service, the Customer's waiver of the right of withdrawal will be manifested by checking the box corresponding to the following sentence: "I expressly waive my right of withdrawal of 14 days for the services that I will receive before the end of this period". The Customer will then receive a confirmation by email of his waiver of the right of withdrawal.
The Customer who has exercised his right of withdrawal from a contract for the provision of services whose performance has begun, at his express request, before the end of the withdrawal period shall pay the Professional an amount corresponding to the service provided until the communication of his decision to withdraw, this amount being proportional to the total price of the service agreed in the contract.
7.3. Cancellation of the contract on the Customer's initiative
The Customer may terminate the contract by registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt if the delivery date of the goods is exceeded by more than seven days. The Customer will then be reimbursed for the sums incurred by him at the time of the order.
This clause is not intended to apply if the delay in delivery is due to a case of force majeure. In such a case, the Customer agrees not to take any legal action against the Publisher and waives the right to terminate the sale as provided for in this article.
7.4.1. Warranty for defects and apparent faults
It is the Customer's responsibility to verify the good condition of the Products at the time of delivery. This verification must include the quality, quantities and references of the Products as well as their conformity to the order. No claim will be taken into account after a period of three days from the delivery. In any case, any complaint concerning the delivered packages will only be taken into account if the Customer, being a trader, has made reservations with the carrier in accordance with articles L. 133-3 and following of the Commercial Code.
7.4.2. Warranty of defects and hidden defects
18.104.22.168. Legal guarantees
Customers have a legal guarantee of delivery in conformity (Article 1604 of the Civil Code), a legal guarantee against hidden defects (Articles 1641 et seq. of the Civil Code) and a safety guarantee (Articles 1245 et seq. of the Civil Code).
Customers who are consumers also have a legal guarantee of conformity (articles L. 217-4 et seq. of the French Consumer Code).
22.214.171.124. Conventional warranty
In addition to the legal warranty, the Products benefit from a conventional warranty of conformity on French territory, for a period of 1 year from the delivery of the Product.
In order to implement the warranty, the Customer must return the Product to the address of the Publisher's head office, accompanied by an explanatory letter requesting either repair, exchange or refund.
In any case, the Customer is requested to follow precisely the instructions of the Publisher concerning the return of the Products.
The cost of returning the Product remains at the expense of the Customer, except for the consumer Customers implementing the guarantee of conformity of the articles L. 217-4 and s. of the Code of the consumption.
The consumer Customer has a period of 2 years from the delivery of the goods to act with the seller. In this respect, he may choose between repairing or replacing the Product, subject to the cost conditions set forth in Article L.217-9 of the French Consumer Code. Finally, the Customer is exempted from proving the existence of the Product's lack of conformity during the 24 months following the delivery of the said Product, except for second-hand goods.
Where applicable, the legal warranty of conformity applies independently of the commercial warranty.
When the Customer decides to invoke the warranty for latent defects, he/she can choose between the resolution of the sale or a reduction of the sale price.
