The applicable GTC are those in force at the date of payment (or first payment in case of multiple payments) of the order. These GTC are available on the Company’s website at the following address: https://www.comptoirdeflorie-bijoux.fr/cgv/.

The Company also ensures that their acceptance is clear and without reserve by putting in place a checkbox and a validation click. The Customer declares that he has read all of these GTC, and where applicable the Special Conditions of Sale related to a product or service, and accepts them without restriction or reservation.

The Customer acknowledges that he/she has received the necessary advice and information in order to ensure that the offer meets his/her needs.

The prices of the products sold through the websites are indicated in Euros excluding taxes and precisely determined on the pages of description of the products. They are also indicated in Euros including all taxes (VAT + other possible taxes) on the page of order of the products, and excluding specific expenses of forwarding. For all products shipped outside the European Union and/or French overseas departments and territories, the price is automatically calculated excluding taxes on the invoice. Delivery costs are at the expense of the Customer, except for orders to Metropolitan France where delivery is offered. Customs duties or other local taxes or import duties or state taxes may be payable in certain cases. These rights and sums are not under the responsibility of the Seller. They shall be borne by the Buyer and are the Buyer’s responsibility (declarations, payment to the competent authorities, etc.). The Seller invites the Buyer to inquire about these aspects with the corresponding local authorities. The Company reserves the right to modify its prices at any time in the future. The telecommunication costs necessary for access to the Company’s websites shall be borne by the Customer.

Article 4 : Conclusion of the online contract

In accordance with the provisions of Article 1127-1 of the Civil Code, the Customer must follow a series of steps to conclude the contract by electronic means in order to be able to carry out his order:

– Choice of the product, and if necessary, of its options;

– Indication of the Customer’s essential details (identification, e-mail, postal address, etc.);

– Verification of the elements of the order (double click formality) and, if necessary, correction of errors. Before proceeding to its confirmation, the Buyer has the possibility to check the details of his order, its price, and to correct any errors, or cancel his order. The confirmation of the order will entail the formation of this contract;

– Acceptance of these GTC;

– Then, instructions for the payment of the products, then delivery of the order. The Customer will receive confirmation by e-mail of the payment of the order, as well as an acknowledgement of receipt of the order confirming it.

During the ordering process, the Customer will have the possibility to identify and correct any errors made in the data entry. The language proposed for the conclusion of the contract is the French language.

The archiving of the communications, the order, the details of the order, as well as the invoices is carried out on a reliable and durable support so as to constitute a faithful and durable copy in accordance with the provisions of article 1360 of the civil code. This information can be produced as proof of the contract.

For the delivered products, the delivery will be made to the address indicated by the Customer. In order to properly complete the order, the Customer agrees to provide true identification. The Seller reserves the right to refuse the order, for example for any abnormal request, made in bad faith or for any legitimate reason.

Article 5 : Products and services

The essential characteristics of the goods, services and their respective prices are made available to the Buyer on the company’s websites, as well as, where appropriate, the method of use of the product. In accordance with Article L112-1 of the Consumer Code, the consumer is informed, by marking, labeling, displaying or any other appropriate process, of the prices and particular conditions of the sale and performance of the services before any conclusion of the sales contract. In all cases, the total amount due by the Buyer is indicated on the order confirmation page. The selling price of the product is the one in force indicated on the day of the order, this one not including the shipping costs charged in supplement. These possible expenses are indicated to the Buyer during the process of sale, and in any case at the time of the confirmation of the order. The Seller reserves the right to modify its prices at any time, while guaranteeing the application of the price indicated at the time of the order. When the products or services are not executed immediately, clear information is given on the product presentation page as to the delivery dates of the products or services. The customer certifies that he/she has received details of the delivery costs as well as the terms of payment, delivery and execution of the contract, as well as detailed information on the identity of the Seller, its postal, telephone and electronic contact details, and its activities in the context of this sale. The Vendor undertakes to honor the Customer’s order within the limits of available stocks of products only. In the event of failure to do so, the Seller shall inform the Customer; if the order has been placed, and if no agreement has been reached with the Customer on a new delivery date, the Seller shall refund the Customer.

The contractual information is presented in detail and in French. The parties agree that the illustrations or photos of the products offered for sale have no contractual value. The period of validity of the offer of the products as well as their prices are specified on the Company’s websites, as well as the minimum duration of the proposed contracts when these relate to a continuous or periodic supply of products or services. Except under special conditions, the rights granted hereunder are granted only to the natural person signing the order (or the person holding the e-mail address provided).

Every effort is made to represent the products as accurately as possible through photographs and other images reproduced on the website, some items, due to screen resolution or photographic technique, may appear slightly larger or smaller than their actual size. Other products may be shown at a larger size than their actual size to accurately show each detail of the products, or at a smaller size to see the entire item. In addition, the details (color, patterns, texture…) that you see also depend on your screen and may, for this reason, not reflect the exact detail of the product you receive. However, Le Comptoir de Florie is committed to ensuring that the photographic representation of products on the site is as faithful as possible to the product.

Article 6 : Conformity

In accordance with Article L.411-1 of the French Consumer Code, the products and services offered for sale through these GTCs comply with the regulations in force relating to the safety and health of persons, the fairness of commercial transactions and consumer protection. Regardless of any commercial warranty, the Seller remains liable for defects in conformity and hidden defects in the product. This warranty applies only to defects already present at the date of delivery of the product and not to misuse, negligence or lack of maintenance by the Customer, as in the case of normal wear and tear of the product.

In accordance with Article L.217-4, the Seller delivers a good in conformity with the contract and is responsible for the defects of conformity existing at the time of delivery. He is also responsible for defects in conformity resulting from the packaging, when the latter has been put at his charge by the contract or has been carried out under his responsibility.

However, the warranty of conformity shall not apply if the Customer was aware of the defect at the time of purchase or if the Customer could not have been unaware of the defect at the time of purchase because the Seller informed the Customer of it.

In accordance with the legal provisions on conformity and latent defects (art. 1641 of the Civil Code), the Customer has a period of two years from the delivery of the product. The Customer must choose between repairing or replacing the non-conforming product. If there is a clear cost difference between the two options, the Seller may impose the cheaper option. If these two options are impossible (if the product is no longer available or not repairable for example), the Seller will refund the product in full (if the Customer decides to return the product) or in part (if the Customer decides to keep the product). The refund can be requested in the following way: see Article 11.4.

Article 7 : Clause of property reserve

The products remain the property of the Company until full payment of the price.

Article 8 : Delivery

Article 8.1 : Terms of delivery

The products are delivered to the delivery address that was indicated at the time of the order and within the time indicated. These deadlines do not take into account the preparation time of the order. When the delivery requires an appointment with the Customer, the two parties will agree by e-mail or telephone in order to agree together on the modalities of supply of the elements necessary for the good realization of the delivery. When the Customer orders several products at the same time, the Seller will do its best to send the products in the same shipment. If this is not possible, the Seller shall inform the Customer by e-mail. In the event of a delay in shipment, the Customer shall be informed by e-mail to the e-mail address provided. In case of delay of delivery, the Customer has the possibility to cancel the contract in the conditions and modalities defined in the Article L 216-2 of the Code of the consumption. The Salesman proceeds then to the refund of the product and to the expenses “to go” under the conditions of the provisions of the articles L216-3 and the L241-4 of the Code of the consumption. The Seller provides a telephone contact point (cost of a local call from a landline) indicated in the order confirmation e-mail in order to follow up the order. The Seller reminds that when the Customer takes physical possession of the products, the risks of loss or damage of the products are transferred to him.
