These identifiers are strictly confidential and shall not be disclosed to third parties. The protection of these identifiers is the Customer's responsibility and the responsibility of the Seller or Made in France may not be sought in the event of theft of these identifiers by a third party or usurpation of a customer's identity.
If the Customer wishes to modify his identifiers or if he suspects fraudulent use of them, he must contact Made in France customer service without delay by sending an email to the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org.

- To confirm the maintenance of his order for the available items;
- To replace the missing products by similar products offered by the seller;
- To ask for the complete cancellation of the order, thus leading to the resolution of the sales contract.
In the event of total unavailability of the products in the order, the seller must inform the customer. The contract of sale will be automatically resolved

c. Terms and conditions of payment

c. Receipt of the order
Orders are delivered to the address indicated by the customer at the time the order is placed. Any order returned to the seller due to an error in the delivery address will be reshipped at the customer's expense.
Upon receipt of his order, the Customer must check the conformity of the products received with the carrier. In the event of a damaged or deteriorated package, or a missing product, the Customer must specify this on the carrier's delivery slip on the day the order is received.
If the package has been torn or opened, the customer must check the condition of the products. If they have been damaged, the customer must refuse the package and note a reservation on the delivery slip indicating any anomaly concerning the delivery.
This verification is considered to be carried out by the Customer once the Customer, or a third party authorized by him for this purpose, has signed the delivery slip.
In the event of a lack of conformity or hidden defect noted by the Customer at the time of the delivery of his order, the latter must contact the seller's customer service as soon as possible, indicating his order and invoice number, his identity and the description of the non-conformity.
The transfer to the customer of the risks of loss and deterioration of the products will be carried out as soon as the products are delivered and received.
In case of loss of package, the Customer - who would not have received his package - must contact the seller's customer service. The Customer will be kept informed of the further processing of his order.
8. LEGAL GUARANTEE OF CONFORMITY
a. Applicable texts
In accordance with the provisions of articles L.217-4 and following of the Consumer Code, the Customer benefits from the legal guarantee of conformity. The articles are reproduced below:
"The seller is required to deliver goods in conformity with the contract and is liable for any lack of conformity existing at the time of delivery. It shall also be liable for defects of conformity resulting from packaging, assembly instructions or installation when the latter was charged to it by the contract or was carried out under its responsibility."
"Defects of conformity which appear within six months from the delivery of the goods are presumed to exist at the time of delivery, unless proven otherwise. The seller may rebut this presumption if it is not compatible with the nature of the goods or the lack of conformity invoked."
"In the event of a lack of conformity, the purchaser chooses between repair or replacement of the goods. However, the seller may not proceed according to the buyer's choice if this choice entails a cost that is manifestly disproportionate to the other method, taking into account the value of the goods or the importance of the defect. In such a case, the seller is bound to proceed, unless it is impossible to do so, according to the method not chosen by the buyer."
"If the repair and replacement of the good are impossible, the buyer may return the good and have the price refunded or keep the good and have part of the price refunded.
The same faculty is open to him:
1° If the solution requested, proposed or agreed in application of article L.217-9 cannot be implemented within one month following the buyer's complaint;
2° Or if this solution cannot be implemented without major inconvenience for the purchaser, given the nature of the goods and the use that he is seeking.
However, the sale may not be rescinded if the lack of conformity is minor."
"The action resulting from the lack of conformity is time-barred after two years from the delivery of the goods."
The Customer has a period of two (2) years from the delivery of the goods to act as a guarantee of non-conformity. The Customer may choose between repair or replacement of the goods, unless the Seller is unable to do so, or, failing this, the return of the price, which shall take place within a maximum of thirty (30) days following the date of confirmation of the defect.
The price will be refunded to the credit of the customer's credit card or by check sent to the customer.
All products offered by the sellers are in accordance with the French legislation in force applicable. The seller does not provide its customers with any additional guarantee other than the legal guarantees of conformity and latent defect (detailed in Article 9 hereof).
The Customer is invited to notify the seller of any damaged package, missing or damaged products or products that do not conform to the order within 24 hours of receipt of the order. Any claim made beyond this period will not be accepted.
The complaint can be made to the email address of the seller indicated on the invoice.
In the event of an exchange desired by the Customer, the Customer is invited to contact the seller directly in order to proceed with the exchange. The Customer will have to pay the difference in case of a price difference. The exchange will only be possible under the following conditions:
- Product in its original packaging;
- Product not deteriorated;
- Product not used and not worn;
- Purchase invoice attached (or copy in case of partial return);
- Delivery note.
10. RIGHT OF WITHDRAWAL
In accordance with Article L.221-18 of the French Consumer Code, the individual Customer has a period of fourteen (14) days from receipt of the Product to exercise his right of withdrawal, for any reason whatsoever, in order to obtain a refund for the Products purchased.
The withdrawal period is not applicable for certain contracts, mentioned in article L.221-28 of the Consumer Code. This right does not apply for the :
"contract for the supply of services fully executed before the end of the withdrawal period and whose execution has begun after prior express agreement of the consumer and express renunciation of his right of withdrawal
contract for the supply of goods or services whose price depends on fluctuations in the financial market
contract for the supply of goods made to your specifications and clearly personalized
contract for the supply of goods that are likely to deteriorate or expire rapidly
contract for goods that have been unsealed by the consumer after delivery and cannot be returned for reasons of hygiene or health protection
contract for the supply of goods which, after delivery and by their nature, are inseparably mixed with other articles
a contract for the supply of alcoholic beverages whose delivery is deferred for more than 30 days and whose value agreed upon at the conclusion of the contract depends on market fluctuations beyond the control of the trader
contract for maintenance or repair work to be carried out urgently in the consumer's home and expressly requested by him, within the limit of the spare parts and work strictly necessary to meet the emergency
a contract for the supply of audio or video recordings or computer software when they have been unsealed by the consumer after delivery
contract for the supply of a newspaper, periodical or magazine, except for subscription contracts for such publications
contract concluded at a public auction
a contract for the provision of accommodation services, other than residential accommodation, goods transportation services, car rentals, meals or recreational activities to be provided on a specific date or for a specific period of time
contract for the supply of digital content not supplied on a physical medium, the performance of which has begun after the consumer's prior express agreement and express renunciation of his right of withdrawal".
Each product sheet indicates which product(s) benefit(s) from exemptions from the right of withdrawal. The customer must exercise this right directly with the seller, according to the terms and conditions indicated in the seller's own general conditions of sale.
Returns are to be made exclusively to the seller concerned under the following conditions:
- Product in its original packaging;
- Product not deteriorated;
- Product not used and not worn;
- Purchase invoice attached (or copy in case of partial return);
- Delivery note.
No return and/or exchange and/or refund can be made directly to Made In France. The return costs will be paid by the customer. Any risk related to the return of the products is the responsibility of the customer. The products must be returned - by the carrier of the customer's choice - to the address of the seller's headquarters, indicated on the invoice.
The customer will be reimbursed for the sums paid - after deduction of the reimbursement of return transport costs - by transfer to his bank card or by cheque, within fourteen (14) days from receipt of his request to exercise his right of retraction.
11. APPLICABLE LAW AND DISPUTE RESOLUTION
In case of dispute, the customer is invited to contact the seller, solely responsible for sales concluded between him and customers via our MarketPlace. Made in France can therefore not be held responsible for the non-performance of all or part of the obligations of the customer or the seller, both having to settle their disputes between them.
The Made in France customer service department may, at its discretion, intervene as a mediator, without prejudice to the full responsibility borne by the seller on its products.
The customer also has the possibility to request a conventional mediation procedure or any other alternative method of dispute resolution if the dispute could not be settled amicably with the seller.
The European Commission has set up an online dispute resolution platform, allowing the independent settlement of online disputes between consumers and professionals in the European Union by extrajudicial means. This commission is accessible at the following address: https://webgate.ec.europa.eu/odr/.
Failing this, any dispute will be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the Versailles Court of Appeal, subject to a specific allocation of jurisdiction arising from a particular law or regulation.
12. FORCE MAJEURE
13. INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY
The sale of products to customers on the www.madeinfrance.shop website does not imply any transfer of copyright and ownership rights on the products, which remain the full and entire property of the sellers.
No user or customer may take any action that is incompatible with the respect of intellectual property law or that is contrary to any other French and international law relating to intellectual property law.
14. MISCELLANEOUS CLAUSES
Severability: If one or more provisions of these GTC are held to be invalid or declared null and void pursuant to a law or regulation or as a result of a court decision that has authorized res judicata, this does not affect the other provisions of the GTC.
Non-waiver: The fact that the Seller or the Customer has not taken advantage of a breach by the other party of any of the obligations referred to in these G.G.V. shall not be interpreted in the future as a waiver of the obligation in question.
Partial nullity: In the event of a contradiction between any provision of the G.C.V. and any present or future legislative text, law, order, regulation, court order or collective agreement, the latter shall prevail, provided that the provision herein so affected shall be limited only to the extent necessary and that no other provision shall be affected.
Language of Terms: These Terms and the transactions arising herefrom shall be governed by French law. They are written in the French language. In the event that they are translated into one or more languages, only the French text shall be deemed authentic in the event of a dispute.
15. REFERENCING OF OFFERS
