The basket remains accessible and modifiable at any time during the connection of the Buyer on the site shop.amaury-dubois.com, by clicking on the icon “My Basket” at the top right of the site.

5. LEGAL GUARANTEES
The Buyer’s attention is drawn to the fact that the provisions of these GCS do not affect the rights of the Buyer by virtue of the legal guarantees provided by the Consumer Code, either in respect of hidden defects and conformity. In this context, it is therefore specified as follows. The Seller undertakes to deliver the works in accordance with the terms and conditions provided by the GCS and the order made by the Buyer. The Seller is responsible for the defects proven at the time of the reception of the work by the Buyer but also those resulting from the packaging.
The work shall be deemed to be in conformity when it is fit for the use usually expected of a similar good (in accordance with the description and legitimate expectations) or when it has the characteristics defined by the parties or is fit for the special use sought by the Buyer and expressly brought to the knowledge of the Seller having led to its express acceptance. Any claim made by the Buyer to the Seller on account of a lack of conformity may be made within a maximum period of two years from receipt of the work. If the claim is accepted, the Seller will propose to the Buyer the replacement of the work (subject to availability), or its repair or reimbursement.
Furthermore, the Seller undertakes to guarantee the Buyer against any hidden defects in the work sold which render it unfit for its intended use, or which so diminish this use that the Buyer would not have acquired it. The exercise of this warranty is also subject to the fact that the defect is deemed to be hidden (e.g.: not known at the time of the order), and that the defect is prior to the sale and renders the work unfit for the use for which it is intended.
Any claim made by the Buyer to the Seller in respect of a latent defect may be made within a maximum period of two years from the discovery of the defect. If the complaint is accepted, the Seller will propose to the Buyer the return of the work accompanied by the reimbursement of the order or the conservation of the work in return for a price reduction in agreement between the Seller and the Buyer.
Any claim for the exercise of the above-mentioned legal guarantees must be sent as soon as the Buyer is aware of it to the Seller by e-mail to the address email@example.com. The Buyer must imperatively attach to his claim the elements of proof that unequivocally justify the said action (explanations, photographs, etc.). The said guarantees are excluded in the event of misuse, negligence or lack of maintenance on the part of the Buyer, as in the event of normal wear and tear of the goods, accident or force majeure.
6. RIGHT OF WITHDRAWAL
Pursuant to Article L.121-21 (law of 17 March 2014 on consumption) of the Consumer Code, the Buyer has a period of 14 days from delivery of the work to formulate his right of withdrawal to the Seller by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The work must be returned in its original packaging and in perfect condition within 14 days of notification to the Seller of the Buyer’s withdrawal. The work will travel at the Buyer’s risk and peril. The costs of return will be the exclusive responsibility of the Buyer.
Works returned damaged or soiled by the Buyer (fingerprints or traces of any other nature) will not be taken back and/or reimbursed. In agreement between the Parties, the Seller will offer the Buyer either a refund of the order within 14 days following receipt of the return of the work or a valid exchange on other works available for sale on shop.amaury-dubois.com.
