ARTICLE 2 – PURPOSE
The purpose of the Terms & Conditions is to define the Seller’s and the Buyer’s rights and obligations when selling Products through the Site www.barbecue-france.fr.
ARTICLE 3 – SCOPE
The Terms & Conditions apply to all sales of Products by the Seller to the Buyer, made through the Site.
An Order will be taken into account by the Seller only after prior acceptance of the Terms & Conditions by the Buyer.
ARTICLE 4 – ORDER
The Buyer places his/her Order through the Site.
All contractual information is presented in French and will be confirmed no later than at the time of delivery.
The Buyer declares to have read the Terms & Conditions prior to placing his/her Order and recognises that the validation of his/her Order implies the acceptance of their terms.
The Buyer also recognises that the Terms & Conditions are made available to him/her in a way that allows for their preservation and reproduction, in accordance with Article 1369-4 of the French Civil Code.
The offers presented by the Seller on the Site are valid for the current year.
In order to place the Order, the Buyer must provide the Seller with his/her personal data and complete an online form accessible from the Site.
The contract of sale between the Seller and the Buyer is formed when the Buyer clicks on the “Validate” button at the time of confirming his/her Order.
Until this final step, the Buyer will have the option of returning to the previous pages and of correcting and modifying his/her Order and the information provided previously.
A confirmation email, acknowledging receipt of the Order and summarising all of this information, will then be sent to the Buyer as soon as possible.
The Buyer must therefore provide a valid email address when he/she completes the fields relating to his/her identity.
In the event that a Product ordered by the Buyer is unavailable, the Seller undertakes to inform the Buyer of this by Email as soon as it is aware of this unavailability.
This unavailability shall result in the cancellation of the Order and the refunding of the Buyer, without any undue delay and no later than 30 days, of the price of this order if his/her bank account has been debited.
The refund will be made by cheque.
ARTICLE 5 – PAYMENT
The prices of the Products indicated on the Site’s pages correspond to prices inclusive of all taxes and excluding logistical preparation and shipping costs.
The Seller reserves the right to modify the prices of the Products presented on the Site.
However, the Products will be charged to the Buyer based on the rates in force at the time of validation of the Order.
Payment will be made at the time of ordering.
The payment order made by bank card cannot be cancelled. Therefore, payment of the Order by the Buyer is binding, without prejudice to the Buyer to exercise his/her right of withdrawal and subsequent cancellation of the Order.
Transfer of ownership of the Product will pass over to the Buyer only when the Seller receives full payment of the price.
ARTICLE 6 – DELIVERY
The Product will be delivered according to the delivery details indicated by the Buyer on the form completed at the time of the Order.
The Seller undertakes to process the Order within thirty days from the date following the validation of the Order.
If the Seller exceeds this timeframe in shipping the Product, an email will be sent to the Buyer and he/she will have the option of cancelling the Order and, if his/her bank account has already been debited, of being refunded the price of the Product.
In case of late delivery following the shipping of the Product, the Buyer may also cancel the Order and be refunded the price of the Product as well as return costs.
If the Product is delivered after the cancellation of the Order, the refund will be made once the Seller has received the Product in its original condition.
The return of the Product and the refunding of the Buyer will take place under the Terms & Conditions provided for hereinafter in Article 7 “Cancellation – Withdrawal – Refund”.
ARTICLE 7 – CANCELLATION – WITHDRAWAL – REFUND
From when the Buyer has received the Product, he/she has a 14-day right of withdrawal, allowing him/her, without having to justify any specific reasons, to return the Product delivered.
If the Buyer exercises this right of withdrawal within 14 clear days from receiving the Product, the Seller undertakes to refund the Buyer without any undue delay and no later than 30 days following the date on which this right has been exercised.
This right of return can only be accepted for products in the original state (unused) and complete (packaging, accessories, instructions, etc.). Items returned scratched, incomplete, spoiled, damaged or soiled by the Buyer will not be taken back or refunded.
Return postage and transport costs will be borne by the Buyer.
ARTICLE 8 – WARRANTY
Without prejudice to his/her right of withdrawal above, the Product provides the Buyer with the warranty for hidden defects as provided for in Article 1641 of the French Civil Code.
Furthermore, if the Product received by the Buyer is non-compliant with the Product named in its Order, this Product will be replaced or repaired, depending on the preference expressed by the Buyer, unless this preference results in a manifestly disproportionate cost in relation to the other option.
If the preference expressed by the Buyer cannot be executed within one month following his/her complaint, or if this repair or replacement is impossible, the Buyer will have the option either to return the Product and to be refunded the price of this Product if payment has already been made, or to keep the Product and to be refunded only part of the price.
ARTICLE 9 – LIABILITY
The Seller’s liability is limited to direct and foreseeable loss or damage which may result from the Buyer using the Site and the Products delivered.
The Seller shall not be held liable if the non-fulfilment or improper fulfilment of its obligations is attributable to the Buyer, to the unforeseeable and unavoidable act of a third party not involved in the provision of the services provided for in the Terms & Conditions, or to an unforeseeable, uncontrollable and external case of force majeure.
The Seller shall not be held liable for any loss or damage resulting from the Buyer’s negligence when using the Products.
