In the event that the package is damaged, the client must imperatively mention it to the transporter in the form of reserves and make sure that the transporter has written it down on the delivery note, in order to allow the company 929 to take recourse against the transporter in case of non-conformity resulting from the transport.

5. Legal guarantees

In the event that the customer considers that the goods do not conform to the contract, he/she may invoke the legal guarantee of conformity provided for in Articles L.217-4 et seq. of the Consumer Code.

In accordance with Article L.217-5 of the Consumer Code, the goods are deemed to conform to the contract:

1° If it is fit for the purpose usually expected of a similar good and, if applicable

- if it corresponds to the description given by the seller and has the qualities that the seller presented to the buyer in the form of a sample or model;

- if it has the qualities that a buyer can legitimately expect, taking into account the public statements made by the seller, the producer or his representative, in particular in advertising or labelling;

2° Or if it has the characteristics defined by mutual agreement between the parties or is suitable for any special use sought by the buyer, brought to the attention of the seller and accepted by the latter.

Article L.217-7 states that:

"Defects of conformity that appear within twenty-four months from the delivery of the goods are presumed to exist at the time of delivery, unless proven otherwise."

The client must make a motivated request directly to the company 929, by means of a registered letter or email, to the addresses indicated on the present general conditions.

This request will have to be motivated, supported by justifying elements and made within a maximum of one month from the knowledge of the defect. The date to be taken into account will be the date the letter is sent. After this period, no lack of conformity or defect may be invoked, the customer being deemed to have refused to invoke it.

In case of lack of conformity, the customer will have to choose between the repair or the replacement of the ordered good.

The repair or the replacement will have to intervene without expenses for the customer, within 30 days following the reception of the letter addressed by the customer.

However, the company 929 will not proceed according to the choice of the buyer if this choice entails a cost that is clearly disproportionate to the other modality, taking into account the value of the good or the importance of the defect.

Unless the lack of conformity is minor, if the repair and replacement of the goods are impossible or cannot be implemented within one month of the customer's complaint, the customer may return the goods and have the price refunded.

The customer can also be offered to keep the product and have part of the price returned to him, the amount of which will have to be determined jointly with the company 929.

The responsibility of the company 929 will in all cases be limited to the implementation of the legal guarantee of conformity so that the customer will not be able to claim any damages resulting from a defect or a non-conformity of the product, or to claim the allocation of an indemnity whatever it is in particular under the title of direct or indirect damage, material or immaterial, consecutive or not.

In accordance with the legal provisions, the customer is also informed of the possibility of implementing, as far as possible, the legal guarantee known as hidden defects provided for in Article 1641 of the Civil Code, which states that "the seller is bound by the guarantee because of hidden defects of the thing sold which make it unsuitable for the purpose for which it was intended, or which so diminish this use that the buyer would not have acquired it, or would have given only a lower price, if he had known them.

As with the legal guarantee, this request must be motivated, supported by supporting elements and made within a maximum of one month from the knowledge of the defect. The date to be taken into account will be the date the letter is sent. After this period, no lack of conformity or defect may be invoked, the customer being deemed to have refused to invoke it. 

6. Responsibility of the company 929
