Le droit en matière de garanties légales s’applique.

Legal guarantee of conformity:

The legal guarantee of conformity is provided for in Articles L.217-3 et seq. of the Consumer Code.

Under the legal guarantee of conformity, we are obliged to answer for defects of conformity of the goods sold which were present at the time of delivery, under the conditions provided for in article L.217-3 of the Consumer Code. However, we are not bound by the public declarations of the manufacturer or his representative if we are not aware of them.

they have a period of two years from the date of delivery of the goods to take action;

he may choose between repairing or replacing the goods, subject to the cost conditions set out in Article L 217-12 of the Consumer Code.

The consumer is exempted from proving the existence of the lack of conformity of the goods during the 24 months following the delivery of the goods, except for goods acquired second-hand for which a period of 12 months applies.

The legal guarantee of conformity applies independently of any commercial guarantee that may have been granted.

Legal guarantee against hidden defects:

The consumer can decide to implement the guarantee against hidden defects of the thing sold within the meaning of Article 1641 of the Civil Code within a period of 2 years from the discovery of the defect. Under the legal guarantee against hidden defects, we are required to respond to hidden defects in the item sold which render it unfit for the intended use or which so diminish this use that the buyer would not have acquired it or would have paid a lower price for it if he had known about them. In this case, the consumer may choose between rescission of the sale or a reduction in the sale price in accordance with Article 1644 of the Civil Code.

Voluntary option to return up to 100 days after receipt

After expiry of the legal right of cancellation, we offer a voluntary option to return the goods for a total of 100 days from receipt of the goods, valid for all purchases. This return option allows you to withdraw from the contract even after the 14-day cancellation period has expired (see under Cancellation policy above) by returning the goods to us within 100 days of receipt (the day after receipt of the goods is considered to be the first day). Timely sending suffices to keep the deadline. A prerequisite for exercising the voluntary return option is, however, that you only wear / try out the goods as you would in a retail store, and that you return the goods in full in their original condition without damage to the original packaging. The voluntary return option is not available for gift certificates.
