The fact that the Seller does not at a given time invoke one of the clauses of these GTCS shall not be interpreted as a waiver of the right to invoke this clause at a later date.

Article 3. – Validity of the Order
The online provision of the credit card number or other banking information and the confirmation of the order and its payment shall be deemed proof of the completeness of the said order, and shall be deemed proof of the sums involved in the order.

Data on computer or electronic media shall constitute valid evidence and as such shall be admissible under the same conditions and with the same probative force as any document drawn up, received or kept in writing.
The Seller reserves the right to refuse any orders where the selling price of the Products is incorrect. In this case, the Seller will inform the Client as soon as possible and the order will be cancelled.

He/she must indicate very precisely his/her address and postal code without any abbreviation if he/she chooses delivery of the Products, or the shop of his/her choice if he/she chooses collection of the Products.
If the delivery address or the shop given by the Client is not valid and therefore leads to the return of the Products for non-receipt at the address given at the time of the order, the costs of returning the Products to the new address given will be charged to the Client.
For more information on the methods of delivery and collection of the Products, and in particular the list of shops that can offer the Product collection service, the Client is invited to consult the following page https://ba-sh.com/fr/fr/pages/delivery.html.
The Seller undertakes to make deliveries, or if necessary to make the Products available to the Client in the shop, as soon as possible, from Monday to Friday, with the exception of public holidays and national holidays, and in any event no later than thirty (30) days after confirmation of the order.
The average time observed for the delivery of Products in metropolitan France is seven (7) working days and three (3) working days for the availability in shop. It is however specified that this time does not take into account the order preparation time.
In the event of a delay in delivery or in making the Products available in the shop of more than seven (7) working days in relation to the deadline indicated at the time of the order or, failing that, at the latest thirty (30) days after confirmation of the order, the Client may enjoin the Seller by registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt, or by a written document on another durable medium, to carry out the delivery or, where applicable, to make the Products available in the shop within a reasonable additional period.
If the Seller does not comply within this period, the Client may then cancel the order by registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt. The refund of the order will then take place within a maximum of fourteen (14) days.
All delivery times and, if applicable, the time of availability of the Products in the warehouse, including those mentioned on the order confirmation, are determined as accurately as possible by the Seller.
In the event that the Seller is unable to deliver or make available in shop the Products ordered due to a sudden, even temporary, unavailability of the Products, he shall inform the Client of this without delay, and at the latest fourteen (14) days after the date of delivery or availability in shop announced by the Seller at the time of placing the order, by e-mail.
The Seller may offer the Client an equivalent Product, which the Client shall be free to accept or not.
If this equivalent Product is not suitable for the Client after acceptance and receipt, the return costs will be borne by the Client. The Client may, however, return the Products free of charge to the shop of his/her choice if necessary. The sums already paid by the Client will be reimbursed as soon as possible and at the latest within fourteen (14) days following the return of the Products.
For the follow-up of the order in progress, the Client can consult his/her Client account on the Site as well as contact the Seller's Client service at the email address firstname.lastname@example.org.
After the Products have been dispatched, the Seller shall send the Client a dispatch notification e-mail with the order tracking number.
The Products shall be delivered or made available in the presence of the Client or a person expressly designated by the Client at the address indicated at the time of ordering.
Where applicable, in order to collect the Products ordered in the shop, the Client or the person expressly designated by him/her must provide proof of identity and proof of order.

Once the Products have been accepted, the Client may not challenge the external appearance of the order.
Where the Client orders Products on the Site for delivery outside the European Union, the Client may be subject to import duties and taxes, which are levied when the Products arrive at their destination.
Any sale of the Products outside the European Union will not be subject to VAT.
Any additional customs clearance costs shall be borne by the Client, as the Seller has no control over such costs.
As customs policies vary from one country to another, the Client is invited to contact the local customs service for more information. Furthermore, when the Client places an order on the Site, the Client is considered to be an importer of the Products concerned and therefore undertakes to comply with all the laws and regulations of the country to which the Products are shipped or made available by the Seller.
Article 5 – Transportation risks
The risk of loss or damage to the Products shall pass to the Client upon delivery or collection of the Products by the Client.
When the Client entrusts the delivery of the Products to a carrier other than the one proposed by the Seller, the risk of loss or damage to the Products is transferred to the Client when the Products are handed over to the carrier.
No claim for a credit note or exchange of a missing, damaged or lost Product after it has left the Seller's warehouses may be made by the Client against the Seller for the Product whose delivery the Client has entrusted to a carrier other than the one offered by the Seller.

The Client also has the option of paying for purchases from one hundred and fifty (150) euros to two thousand (2,000€) in three (3) or four (4) instalments free of charge by Visa and Mastercard with a validity date greater than the chosen financing period.

Article 7 – E-gift card
The e-gift card is valid for one (1) year from the date it is sent to the Client, or to any other recipient of the Client's choice.
This e-card can be used to pay for all or part of the purchases on the Site. It can be used as often as the holder wishes, until the total amount is used up during its validity period. The balance available on the e-Gift Card will be the difference between the amount available before the purchase and the amount used to make the purchase. Where the purchase price exceeds the available balance of the e-Gift Card, the difference can be paid by any other means of payment. The available balance can be checked on the "e-gift card" page on the Site.
The e-gift card is not nominative. The holder is exclusively responsible for its use.
Refunds, if any, for Products purchased with the e-gift card and returned will be made in the form of a credit note. This will be sent by e-mail to the address of the Client who made the purchase with the e-gift card.
The credit note is valid for a period of one (1) year from the date of receipt of the email containing the relevant information. The Client may pay for all or part of his purchases with the credit note. The credit note can be used as often as the holder wishes, until the total amount is used up during its period of validity. The balance available on the credit will be the difference between the amount available before the purchase and the amount used to make the purchase. When the purchase price exceeds the available balance of the credit, the difference can be paid by any other means of payment.
The credit note is nominative and is attached to the Client's account. The amount available can be viewed at any time in the "my account" section on the Site. Its holder shall be exclusively responsible for its use.
Refunds, if any, for products purchased with the credit note and returned will also be made in the form of a credit note.
Once the validity period of the credit or e-gift card has expired, it cannot be renewed or used for purchases and no available balance can be claimed.
An e-gift card cannot be purchased with another e-gift card.
E-gift cards originally obtained by illegal means are null and void and cannot be used for purchases and their price cannot be refunded.
Article 8 – Retention of title clause
The Seller retains ownership of the Product sold until full and effective payment of the price.
Until the price has been paid in full, the Client shall refrain from pledging or using the Products subject to retention of title as security and shall separate the Product from the Seller.
These conditions do not prevent the transfer to the Client, as soon as the Product is delivered or collected from the shop, of the risks of loss and deterioration of the Products subject to retention of title, as well as the responsibility for any damage or prejudice that they may cause.
Article 9 – Right of withdrawal
If the Client is not satisfied with the Products ordered, he may exercise his right of withdrawal without giving any reason.
The Client then has a period of fourteen (14) days from the delivery or collection in shop of the Products ordered on the Site to return them, with the postmark or the shop concerned acting as proof, where applicable. When the fourteen (14) day period expires on a Saturday, Sunday or public holiday, it is extended until the next working day.
In this case, the Client must notify his decision to withdraw in writing in an unambiguous statement sent in the manner of his choice or by returning to the Seller the withdrawal form accessible on the Site from his Client account or in the annex to these GTCS:
- By email to: email@example.com.
- By mail at the following address:
Zac de la Butte aux Bergers
11 Avenue du Noyer de la Malice
At the same time, the Client shall return the Product which is the subject of this withdrawal to the Seller within the same period of time, by sending it to the above address.
The Product must be returned complete in new and undamaged condition, otherwise it will not be retaken or exchanged.
The Seller advises the Client, in order to avoid any loss or theft, that the Product be returned by registered parcel with acknowledgement of receipt. Furthermore, the original packaging must be carefully protected to avoid any deterioration in boxes or cartons.
The costs of returning Products ordered in France and in the United States are borne by the Seller via a prepaid return label. For Products ordered outside of the above-mentioned countries, the return costs, including customs and taxes if applicable, shall be borne exclusively by the Client.
In the event of a valid withdrawal by the Client, the Seller shall refund all sums paid, including delivery costs, by the Client for the Product concerned.
This reimbursement will take place within fourteen (14) days from the day the Seller was informed of the Client's decision to withdraw. Nevertheless, if the Client does not return all the Products of the same order and keeps some of the ordered Products, he acknowledges and accepts that the delivery costs will not be reimbursed by the Seller.
The Seller reserves the right to defer the refund of the Products until it has received them or until the Client provides the Seller with proof of shipment of the returned Products.
The right of withdrawal cannot be exercised for all products excluded by law in article L. 221-28 of the French Consumer Code, unless otherwise agreed by the Parties, and in particular Products that have been customized at the request of the Client, Products for contracts for the supply of goods made to the Client's specifications or clearly personalized, as well as for the supply of goods that have been unsealed by the Client after delivery and that cannot be returned for reasons of hygiene or health protection (e.g., pantyhose or underwear worn, etc.)
Article 10 – Guarantees
10.1 Guarantee against hidden defects
The Products offered by the Seller are subject to the guarantee against hidden defects set out in Article 1641 of the French Civil Code, which states that "The seller is bound by the guarantee on account of hidden defects in the thing sold which render it unsuitable for the use for which it was intended, or which so diminish this use that the buyer would not have acquired it, or would have given a lower price for it, if he had known about them.
An action for latent defects must be brought within two (2) years of the discovery of the defect.
The Client may decide to implement the guarantee against hidden defects of the thing sold by choosing between the resolution of the sale or a reduction of the sale price in accordance with the provisions of Article 1644 of the Civil Code.
10.2 Legal guarantee of conformity
The Products are also subject to the legal guarantee of conformity provided for in the French Consumer Code, which stipulates in particular that: "The seller is obliged to deliver goods in conformity with the contract and is liable for any defects in conformity existing at the time of delivery.
He shall also be liable for any lack of conformity resulting from the packaging, the assembly instructions or the installation when the latter was made his responsibility by the contract or was carried out under his responsibility.”
The Client has a period of two (2) years from the delivery of the Products to obtain the implementation of the legal guarantee of conformity in the event of a defect in conformity. During this period, the Client is only required to establish the existence of the lack of conformity and not the date of its appearance.
The legal guarantee of conformity entitles the Client to repair or replace the Product concerned within thirty (30) days of his request, free of charge and without any major inconvenience to him.
If the Product concerned is repaired under the legal warranty of conformity, the Client benefits from a six (6) month extension of the initial warranty.
If the consumer requests the repair of the Product concerned, but the Seller imposes the replacement, the legal warranty of conformity is renewed for a period of two (2) years from the date of the replacement of the Product.
The Client may obtain a reduction in the purchase price by retaining the Product concerned or terminate the contract by obtaining a full refund in return for the return of the Product, if:
- The Seller refuses to repair or replace the Product concerned
- The repair or replacement of the Product concerned will take place after a period of thirty (30) days;
- The repair of replacement of the Product concerned causes major inconvenience to the Client, in particular if the Client definitively bears the costs of taking back or removing the non-conforming Product, or if he bears the costs of installing the repaired or replacement Product;
- The non-conformity of the Product concerned persists despite the Seller's unsuccessful attempt to bring it into conformity.
The Client is also entitled to a reduction in the price of the Product concerned or to rescission of the contract if the lack of conformity is so serious that it justifies the reduction in price or rescission of the contract being immediate. In such cases, the Client is not obliged to request the repair or replacement of the Product concerned beforehand.
The Client is not entitled to rescind the sale if the lack of conformity is minor.
Any period of immobilisation of the Product concerned for the purpose of repair or replacement shall suspend the warranty which was due until the delivery of the Product concerned in a reconditioned state.
10.3 Legal guarantee of authenticity
The Seller guarantees the authenticity of all Products purchased on the Site.
Article 11 – Pricavy and personal data
Personal data relating to the Client may be processed by the Seller, in particular in the context of placing an order on the Site and managing the delivery of Products.

Article 13 – Responsibility
The Seller has an obligation of means for all stages of the ordering of Products, as well as for the stages after the order has been placed.
The Seller shall not be held responsible for a presentation of the Products that does not allow the Client to view them completely and accurately (e.g.: colour appearing on the screen differing from the colour of the garment etc.).
However, the Seller undertakes to describe as accurately as possible or to present a photograph of the Products sold on the Site, it being understood that the photographs are not contractual.
The Client acknowledges and accepts that the prices of the Products are likely to vary between the Site and the shops, and that under no circumstances may this price difference be used as a basis for a request for total or partial reimbursement of the Products purchased either on the Site or in the shops.
In all cases, the Seller shall not be held liable in the event that the non-performance of its obligations is attributable either to the unforeseeable and insurmountable act of a third party to the contract or to a case of force majeure as defined by French case law, or to the act of the Client.
Likewise, the Seller shall not be held liable for any inconvenience or damage inherent in the use of the Internet network, in particular a break in service, external intrusion or the presence of computer viruses.
Article 14 – Force majeure
Neither party may be held liable if the execution of the contract is delayed or prevented due to force majeure or a fortuitous case, the fault of the other party or a third party or external causes such as social conflicts, intervention by civil or military authorities, natural disasters, fire, water damage, interruption of the telecommunications network or the electricity network.
