These conditions only apply to Clients who are natural persons, non-merchants and who therefore acquire the Products sold on the Seller’s Website for their own personal use, and not for any professional activity.
These General Terms and Conditions of Sales (hereinafter “GTCS”) exclusively govern all orders and sales agreements executed between the Seller and its Clients, to the exclusion of all other conditions and they shall prevail, where applicable, over any other version or document.

The fact that the Seller does not invoke, at any given time, one of the provisions of the GTCS shall not be interpreted as a waiver of said term for the future.
Any amendments made to the GTCS are enforceable against the Client as soon as they are uploaded onto the Website and do not apply to any prior transaction already executed at the time of the upload.

Article 8. Acceptation and rejection of the Products
According to Section 37 of the Sale of Goods Ordinance, the Client is deemed to have accepted the Products when:
- The Client tells or intimates to the Seller that he/she has accepted the Products; or
- The Products have been delivered to the Client and the Client does any act in relation to them which is inconsistent with the ownership of the Seller; or
- After the lapse of a reasonable time the Client retains the Products without intimating to the Seller that he has rejected them.
Whether a reasonable time has elapsed include whether the Client has had a reasonable opportunity to examine the Products for the purpose of ascertaining whether they are in conformity with the contract.
The Client is entitled to reject the Products and get a refund if the Products:
- Are faulty;
- Are not of satisfactory merchantable quality or fitness;
- Do not match their descriptions; or
- Are different from the ones ordered.
In order to reject the Products, the Client must clearly and promptly notify his/her decision to the Seller either (i) in writing in an unambiguous statement and sent through any chosen medium or (ii) by returning the withdrawal form accessible through the Client’s account, both of which may be sent:
- By email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
- By mail at the following address:
67 Avenue Raymond Poincaré
Simultaneously, the Client must immediately return the Product that is the subject matter of the rejection to the Seller, by sending it to the above address as indicated by the Seller on the withdrawal form.
If the withdrawal form allows it and provides the option to return the Product to a suggested list of stores, this will constitute a second method of return.
The Product must be returned in its original condition (packaging, conservation of the label, copy of the invoice, the Product having undergone no alteration), otherwise it will not be taken back nor exchanged.
To avoid any loss or theft, the Seller recommends that the Client return the Product by registered parcel with acknowledgement of receipt or, if necessary, directly to the store among the suggested list of stores. Additionally, the original packaging must be carefully protected to avoid being damaged.
The Seller reserves the right to refuse any return of Products that does not comply with the above-mentioned conditions.
Any return costs, including customs duties and taxes, shall be borne by the Client. In the event of a valid withdrawal by the Client, the Seller shall reimburse all amounts paid, including delivery costs, by the Client for the Product in question.
This reimbursement shall be processed within fourteen (14) days from the day on which the Seller was informed of the Client's decision to withdraw.
The Seller reserves the right to defer reimbursement of the Products until the day of receipt of the returned Products or until the Client provides the Seller with proof of shipment of the returned Products.
The rejection of the Products may not be exercised, unless the Parties have agreed otherwise, for agreements relating to 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 due to health and hygiene concerns.

Personal data relating to the Client may be processed by the Seller, including in the context of the ordering process and delivery management.
Article 10. Liability

The Seller shall aim to describe the Products with the utmost accuracy, or to present a photograph on the Website when possible, it being understood that the photographs shown on the Website are not binding.
The Client acknowledges and accepts that the prices of the Products are likely to vary between the Website and the stores, 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 Website or in stores.
In any case, the Seller may not be held liable where the non-performance of its obligations would be attributable either to (i) the unforeseeable and insurmountable act of a third party to the agreement or to (ii) a case of force majeure as defined in Article 11 of these GTCS.
Likewise, the Seller may not be held liable for any inconvenience or damage inherent to the use of the Internet, including an interruption in service, external intrusion or the presence of computer viruses.
Article 11. Force majeure
The responsibility of either Party may not be engaged where the performance of the contract is delayed or prevented due to a case of force majeure or a fortuitous event, whether due to the act of a party or third-party, or due to external causes such as social conflicts, intervention of civil or military authorities, natural disasters, fires, water damage, interruption of the telecommunication network or of the electrical network.
