The Customer guarantees La Romaine Editions that he/she holds all the authorisations required to use the chosen method of payment.

ARTICLE 7 - DELIVERY
The Products offered can only be delivered to the Territories mentioned in Article 1. It is impossible to place an order for any delivery address located outside these Territories.
When placing their order, Customers are invited to choose from the delivery methods offered by La Romaine Editions.
The Products are sent to the delivery address(es) that the Customer will have indicated during the ordering process. The carrier may contact the Customer to inform him/her of a delivery date and/or to make an appointment for such a date.
La Romaine Editions will notify the Customer of any shipment of an order by sending an email allowing the Customer to track the shipment. Delivery will be deemed to have taken place when the Customer or a third party designated by the Customer, and other than the carrier proposed by La Romaine Editions, takes physical possession of the product.
Delivery costs are indicated in € including VAT and are payable by the Customer. These costs may vary depending on the weight, volume and nature of the Products, as well as the carrier, the delivery method and the place of delivery. The delivery costs are notified to the Customers when they place their order.
For Customers located outside the European Union, customs duties may apply in accordance with the regulations in force. Customs taxes are the responsibility of the Customer. It is therefore the responsibility of the Customer to find out the amount of these taxes from their local customs office.
In view of the customs clearance, delivery times may be extended.
As a general rule, delivery times are between 5 and 7 working days for metropolitan France, Corsica and Monaco and 7 to 12 days outside these territories. However, please note that these delivery times are given as an indication only and are not binding on La Romaine Editions. The delivery of several Products from the same order may be fragmented (the Customer will be informed by email).
In the event of a delay in delivery of more than 30 days, the Customer may cancel the order by registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt or by writing on another durable medium addressed to the customer service department of La Romaine Editions, if, after having requested La Romaine Editions, in the same way, to make the delivery or provide the service within a reasonable additional time, La Romaine Editions has not complied with this deadline. In such a case, the order will be considered as cancelled upon receipt by La Romaine Editions of the letter or writing informing it of this cancellation, unless La Romaine Editions has performed in the meantime. In the event of cancellation of an order in the aforementioned manner, La Romaine Editions will reimburse the Customer for all sums paid, at the latest 14 days after the date of cancellation.
Any apparent anomaly concerning an order (number of units, state of the packaging, etc.) must be precisely indicated (detailed description of the anomaly) by the Customer on the carrier's delivery slip, in the presence of the carrier. The Customer must immediately inform La Romaine Editions by providing any useful evidence (photograph, description of the anomaly...). An apparent anomaly means any anomaly that should normally be detected by a normally attentive and informed consumer. Failing this, the products shall be deemed to have been delivered free of any apparent anomaly. It is therefore up to the Customer to preserve his rights vis-à-vis the carrier under the conditions provided for in Article L.133-3 of the French Commercial Code (motivated confirmation of the anomaly to the carrier by sending a registered letter within 3 days, not including public holidays, following receipt of the products concerned.
ARTICLE 8 - GUARANTEES
All Products benefit from the legal guarantee of conformity (as defined in articles L217-4 et seq. of the French Consumer Code) and the guarantee against hidden defects (as defined in articles 1641 et seq. of the French Civil Code), allowing the Customer to return defective or non-conforming products at no cost.
When acting under the legal guarantee of conformity, Customers :
- Have a period of 2 years from the delivery of the goods to act;
- Can choose between repairing or replacing the goods, subject to the cost conditions provided for in Article L.217-9 of the Consumer Code;
- Are exempted from proving the existence of the lack of conformity of the goods during the 24 months following the delivery of a new good and the 6 months following the delivery of a second-hand good.
In addition, it is also recalled that :
- The legal guarantee of conformity applies independently of any commercial guarantee that may have been granted;
- Customers may decide to invoke the guarantee against hidden defects in the item sold provided for in Article 1641 of the Civil Code and may thus choose between rescission of the sale or a reduction in the sale price in accordance with Article 1644 of the Civil Code.
8.1. Legal guarantee of conformity - reminder of the legal texts
Article L.217-4 of the Consumer Code: The seller is obliged to deliver goods in conformity with the contract and is responsible for any defects in conformity existing at the time of delivery. He is also liable for defects in 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.
Article L.217-5 of the Consumer Code: To be in conformity with the contract, the goods must :
1/ Be fit for the purpose ordinarily expected of similar goods and, where appropriate :
- correspond to the description given by the seller and have the qualities that the seller has presented to the buyer in the form of a sample or model;
- have the qualities that a purchaser may legitimately expect, having regard to public statements made by the seller, the producer or his representative, in particular in advertising or labelling.
2/ Or have the characteristics defined by mutual agreement between the parties or be suitable for any special use sought by the buyer, brought to the attention of the seller and accepted by the latter.
The action resulting from the lack of conformity is prescribed by two (2) years from the delivery of the Product (Article L.217-7 of the Consumer Code).
Article L.217-9 of the Consumer Code: In the event of a lack of conformity, the buyer may choose between repairing or replacing the goods. However, the seller may not proceed according to the buyer's choice if this choice entails a cost that is clearly disproportionate to the other method, taking into account the value of the goods or the importance of the defect. He shall then be obliged to proceed, unless this is impossible, according to the method not chosen by the buyer.
Article L.217-10 of the Consumer Code :
If repair and replacement of the goods is not possible, the buyer may return the goods and have the price returned or keep the goods and have part of the price returned.
The same option is available to him:
1/ If the solution requested, proposed or agreed upon pursuant to Article L. 217-9 cannot be implemented within one month of the buyer's complaint;
2/ Or if this solution cannot be achieved without major inconvenience to the consumer, given the nature of the property and the use he is seeking.
However, the sale cannot be rescinded if the lack of conformity is minor.
8.2. Guarantee against hidden defects - reminder of legal texts
Article 1641 of the Civil Code: The seller is bound by the guarantee for hidden defects in the item sold which make it unsuitable for the use for which it was intended, or which reduce this use so much that the buyer would not have acquired it, or would have given a lower price for it, if he had known about them.
Article 1642 of the Civil Code: The seller is not liable for apparent defects of which the buyer has been able to convince himself.
Article 1644 of the Civil Code: In the case of articles 1641 and 1643, the buyer has the choice of returning the thing and having the price returned, or keeping the thing and having part of the price returned.
Article 1646 of the Civil Code: If the seller was unaware of the defects of the thing, he shall only be obliged to refund the price and reimburse the purchaser for the costs incurred by the sale.
Article 1648 paragraph 1 of the Civil Code: The action resulting from redhibitory defects must be brought by the purchaser within two years of the discovery of the defect.
8.3. Exclusion of warranties
Products that have been modified, repaired, integrated or added by the Customer are excluded from the warranty.
The guarantee will not apply to visible defects. The guarantee does not cover products damaged during transport or due to misuse.
8.4 Implementation of guarantees
In the event of non-conformity or hidden defect of the Product, the Customer must address his complaint to the customer service department of La Romaine Editions. The exercise of these guarantees is free of charge for the Customer, in accordance with article L.217-11 of the French Consumer Code, provided that the Customer is entitled to claim the benefit of these guarantees.
The Customer is informed that :
- He has a period of two years from the date of delivery of the property to act;
- He may choose between repairing or replacing the goods, subject to the cost conditions set out in Article L217-9 of the Consumer Code;
- He is exempted from proving the existence of the lack of conformity of the goods for the full duration of the legal guarantee, i.e. 2 years following the delivery of the goods.
La Romaine Editions regularly carries out tests on the conformity of the products sold and the proof of conformity of the batches analysed, which are kept on the premises of La Romaine Editions, may, if necessary, be used against the Customers.
In the event that La Romaine Editions finds that the legal guarantee of conformity or hidden defects has been abused or used in bad faith (abnormally high frequency of use, product returned not corresponding to the product purchased, product returned late and in an obviously depreciated condition, non-conformity of a product which is clearly the result of inappropriate use by the Customer, etc.), La Romaine Editions reserves the right to give the Customer formal notice to present, within a period of eight (8) days, its observations on the reproached grievance. In the absence of a reply or a satisfactory response, La Romaine Editions reserves the right to invoice the Customer for compensation proportional to the management costs incurred in dealing with an abusive or bad faith request.
ARTICLE 9 - WITHDRAWAL
9.1 Right of withdrawal
In accordance with Article L. 221-18 of the French Consumer Code, the Customer has a period of 14 (fourteen) days from the date of receipt of the Products ordered to exercise his legal right of withdrawal without having to give reasons for his decision.
