Failing order execution at the end of this period, the sale can be cancelled at the request of the Customer by registered letter with acknowledgment of receipt. The sums paid by the Customer will then be returned to him/her, excluding any compensation whatsoever.

11. CHECKING PRODUCTS DELIVERED

At the time of receiving his/her order, the Customer is required to check the apparent condition of the products delivered (i.e. that the packaging and contents are not spoiled or damaged, especially as a result of transport) and also whether the quantity of products delivered is in conformity with the order. Any apparent defect and / or any non-conformity with the order of the quantity of products delivered must form the object of a reservation by the Customer made to the carrier and must be confirmed by the Customer, within fourteen days from the date of receipt of the product by the Customer; whereby this reservation must be sent to the CONSERVERIE LA BELLE ILOISE using one of the following methods:

Any product returned without a returns number will be refused and sent back to the sender.

12. WARRANTIES

The products offered for sale comply with the regulations in force in France. The products supplied by the seller benefit from statutory warrantees automatically and without the need for additional payment: 

- the legal warranty of conformity, for apparently defective, spoiled or damaged products or not corresponding to the order; 

- the legal warranty against hidden defects resulting from a defect in material, design or manufacturing affecting the products delivered and rendering them unfit for use, under the following conditions: 

As part of the legal warranty of conformity, the Customer: 

. Benefits from a period of two years from delivery of the item in which to act against the Seller; 

. Can choose between the repair or replacement of the product ordered, subject to the cost conditions provided for in Article L. 211-9 of the Consumer Code; 

. Is exempt from providing proof of nonconformity of the product during the 24 months following delivery of the product, except for second-hand goods. 

The legal warranty of conformity applies regardless of the commercial warranty that may cover the product. 

The Customer may decide to implement the warranty against hidden defects of the Product in accordance with Article 1641 of the Civil Code. In this case, he/she can choose between cancellation of the sale or a reduction in the selling price in accordance with article 1644 of the Civil Code.

In order to assert his/her rights to the warranties, the Customer must inform the Seller, in writing, of the non-conformity of the products within the above-mentioned deadlines and of any hidden defects of the goods within three months of delivery. The Customer must, after approval by the Seller, return the defective products to the address of the Seller in a complete and good condition. 

No product can be exchanged before being redirected and received by the Seller. Before returning any products to the Seller and to obtain reimbursement of the cost of the return, the Customer must contact the Seller to obtain a returns authorisation number, and must affix it to the return package. 

Any product returned without a return number will be rejected. The Seller will replace the products under warranty deemed non-compliant or defective and will bear the cost of sending them back. The risks associated with the return of the product, regardless of the cause, are payable by the Customer.

THE PRODUCTS DELIVERED BY THE CONSERVERIE LA BELLE ILOISE ARE SOLD WITH A CLAUSE THAT EXPRESSLY RENDERS TRANSFER OF TITLE TO THEM SUBJECT TO FULL PAYMENT OF THE PURCHASE PRICE AS REGARDS THE PRINCIPAL SUM AND ANY ACCESSORY SUMS. 

The mere handover of an order creating an obligation to pay, whether a cheque or otherwise, does not constitute payment, whereby the claim originating from the CONSERVERIE LA BELLE ILOISE against the Customer remains in being together with the warranties attached thereto, including the associated retention of title, until the payment order or the bill of exchange has actually been paid and the sums due have been received by the CONSERVERIE LA BELLE ILOISE. 

The risk of loss or damage to the products is transferred to the consumer at the moment when he/she takes, or a third party designated by him/her, takes physical possession of the product. The products travel at the risk and peril of the Seller.

Consequently, in the event of a transport strike, as well as in the event of a strike within our establishments or at our suppliers, as well as in the event of riots, war, attack, lack of raw materials or energy resources, or in the event of any other case of force majeure, the CONSERVERIE LA BELLE ILOISE may suspend its deliveries, and cancel all or part of the orders in progress, without the Customer being able to claim any compensation therefor.

16. APPLICABLE LAW - DISPUTES

The GCS and the resulting transactions are governed by French law. In case of translation of these GCS into a foreign language, the French version takes precedence over any other version. 

All disputes to which the purchase and sale transactions concluded under the present GSC could give rise, concerning their validity, their interpretation, their execution, their cancellation, their consequences and their aftermath and which could not have been solved amicably between the Seller and the Customer, shall be submitted to the competent courts under common law conditions. 

The Customer is hereby informed that he/she can in any case resort to a conventional mediation.
