c)       Damage and partial loss

In such cases, the delivery times indicated above in these terms and conditions shall no longer apply.

     8. Guarantee for products purchased on this website


All products sold on this site are marketed in compliance with the laws and regulations in force and receive all the necessary approvals to be placed on the market.

To exercise any of these rights, it is up to them to approach the customer service of the publisher.

A defective item, under normal conditions of use, renders it unfit for the use of which it was intended for, and the obligation of compliance is understood as the handing over of the contractually agreed, the editor of this site is especially not responsible for normal wear and tear, non-compliance with the instructions for usage or maintenance, or accidental damage resulting from abnormal use of the products.


     9. Personal account


a)      Creation of personal account


The creation of a personal account is a prerequisite for any customer order on this website. To this end, the user will be asked to provide certain personal information. The user agrees to provide accurate information under penalty of termination of the contract and deletion of the personal account on the decision of the editor.

Some information will be essential to the contract and its collection will be essential to the creation of a personal account and validation of the order. The refusal by a user to provide such information will effectively prevent the creation of personal account and, incidentally, the validation of the order.


b)      Function

 This account allows the customer or member to view all orders made on the site and track the delivery of goods purchased.

 If the data contained in the personal account section were to disappear as a result of unforeseeable circumstances or technical failure, responsibility will not go to this website’s editor, due to this information having only an informative nature. The editor will, however, securely maintain all contractual elements whose conservation is required by law or regulations.

 The editor reserves the exclusive right to delete the account of any member who may have breached these terms and conditions (including, but not that this example has any completeness, where the member has knowingly provided false information during their registration and the creation of personal account) or is inactive for at least a year. Said deletion is not likely to constitute harm to the excluded member who may not claim any compensation as a result.

 When the facts are warranted, this deletion does not exclude the possibility, for the editor, to undertake judicial proceedings against the member.


c)       Password


During the creation of a personal account, the user is prompted for a password. This password is the guarantee of confidentiality of information contained in the personal account and the user therefore agrees not to transmit or communicate it to third parties. Otherwise, the site will not be held liable for the unauthorised access of a member’s account.
