Article 2 – ONLINE CONTRACTUALIZATION (articles 1369-4 and 1125 to 1127 of the civil code)
The sales contract between the buyer and the seller is concluded when the latter validates his order at the end of the process of selecting the product(s) he has chosen.
To buy one or more products on the site, the Customer selects each product and adds it to his basket. Once his selection is complete, he must confirm his basket to proceed to the Order (first click).
At this stage, the Customer is redirected to a page containing a summary of the selected products, the corresponding prices, terms and delivery costs. It is then up to him to check and possibly correct the contents of his basket. It is up to him to read these General Conditions of Sale carefully before validating the entire Order.
This validation of the Order after checking the basket and reading the General Conditions of Sale (second click) constitutes conclusion of the Contract and the Customer acknowledges that the second click entails a payment obligation on his part.
The Customer is then redirected to the payment page. He can choose between the different payment methods offered and proceeds to the payment of his Order.
After having validated his Order and made his payment, the Customer receives, on the email address he communicated to create his account, a confirmation message from the supplier. This message contains, in PDF format:
– The summary of his order (selected products, prices, terms and delivery costs);
– The precise identification of the supplier and its activity;
– The Order number;
– The terms, conditions and withdrawal form;
– These General Terms and Conditions of Sale in PDF format.
In the event of non-receipt of the confirmation of the Order, it is recommended that the Customer contact the supplier via the contact form present on the site.
The Customer then receives a purchase invoice sent in electronic form, which the Customer expressly accepts.
The Customer is advised to keep this confirmation message and the purchase invoice which is also sent to him in electronic format since these documents can be produced as proof of the Contract.
The supplier reserves the right to refuse any Order for any legitimate reason, including for example:
– Order not in accordance with the General Conditions of Sale;
– Quantities ordered not corresponding to normal use by an individual;
– Suspicion of fraud on the Order.
