Article V – Product Guarantee
Legal provisions to be reproduced

The legal guarantee of conformity applies regardless of any commercial guarantee granted.

The consumer may decide to implement the warranty against hidden defects in the item sold within the meaning of Article 1641 of the Civil Code, unless the seller has stipulated that he will not be bound by any warranty; In the event that this warranty is implemented, the buyer has the choice between rescinding the sale or reducing the sale price in accordance with Article 1644 of the Civil Code. He has two years from the discovery of the defect.

The postponement, suspension or interruption of the limitation period cannot have the effect of extending the extinctive limitation period beyond twenty years from the date of the birth of the right in accordance with Article 2232 of the Civil Code.

All items acquired on this site benefit from the following legal guarantees, provided for by the Civil Code;

Legal guarantee of conformity

According to articles L.217-4 et seq. Of the Consumer Code, the Seller is required to deliver goods in accordance with the contract concluded with the Consumer Customer and to respond to any lack of conformity existing during the delivery of the Product. The guarantee of conformity may be exercised if a defect should exist on the day of taking possession of the Product. However, when the defect has appeared within 24 months of this date (or within 6 months if the order was placed before March 18, 2016 or the Product is sold second-hand), it is presumed to meet this condition. But, in accordance with Article L.217-7 of the Consumer Code, “the Seller may challenge this presumption if it is not compatible with the nature of the [Product] or the lack of conformity invoked”.

On the other hand, after this period of 24 months (or 6 months if the order took place before March 18, 2016 or the product is sold second-hand), it will be up to the Customer to prove that the defect did exist at the time of taking possession of the Product.

In accordance with Article L.217-9 of the Consumer Code: “in the event of a lack of conformity, the buyer chooses between repair and replacement of the goods. However, the seller may not proceed according to the buyer’s choice if this choice results in a manifestly disproportionate cost compared to the other modality, taking into account the value of the good or the importance of the defect. He is then required to proceed, unless this is impossible, according to the method not chosen by the buyer “.

Legal guarantee against hidden defects

According to articles 1641 to 1649 of the Civil Code, the Customer may request the exercise of the warranty against hidden defects if the defects presented did not appear during the purchase, were prior to the purchase (and therefore do not result from normal wear and tear of the Product for example), and are sufficiently serious (the defect must either render the Product unfit for the use for which it is intended, or reduce this use to an extent such that the buyer would not have purchased the Product or would not have bought it at such a price if he had known the defect).

Complaints, exchange or refund requests for a non-compliant Product must be made by post or email to the addresses indicated in the legal notices of the site.
