The CUSTOMER must select the PRODUCT(s) of his choice by clicking on the PRODUCT(s) concerned and choosing the desired characteristics and quantities. Once the PRODUCT is selected, the PRODUCT is placed in the CUSTOMER's basket. The latter can then add to his basket as many PRODUCTS as he wishes.

Once the PRODUCTS have been selected and placed in his basket, the CUSTOMER must click on the basket and check that the content of his order is correct. If the CLIENT has not yet done so, he will then be asked to identify himself or register.

Article 13. Guarantees
Article 13.1. Guarantee of conformity
The SELLER is required to deliver a PRODUCT that complies with the expected use of a similar good and corresponding to the description given on the SITE. This conformity also assumes that the PRODUCT has the qualities that a buyer can legitimately expect in view of the public statements made by the SELLER, including in advertisements and on labels.
In this context, the SELLER is likely to be liable for the lack of conformity existing at the time of delivery and for the lack of conformity resulting from the packaging, the assembly instructions or the installation when it has been charged to him or has been carried out under his responsibility.
The action resulting from the lack of conformity is prescribed by two (2) years from the delivery of the PRODUCT. The CUSTOMER is exempted from providing proof of the existence of the lack of conformity of the goods for 6 months following the delivery of the said goods (this period will be extended to 24 months from 18 March 2016, except for second-hand goods). The legal guarantee of conformity applies independently of any commercial guarantee granted.
In case of lack of conformity, the CUSTOMER may request the replacement or repair of the PRODUCT, at his choice. However, if the cost of the CUSTOMER's choice is manifestly disproportionate to the other possible option, given the value of the PRODUCT or the importance of the defect, the SELLER may make a refund, without following the option chosen by the Customer. In the event that a replacement or repair would be impossible, the SELLER undertakes to return the price of the PRODUCT within 30 days of receipt of the returned PRODUCT and in exchange for the return of the PRODUCT by the CUSTOMER to the following address
STDS - ZA de la Mare - 12 rue des Trois Saules - 77930 St Sauveur sur Ecole.
Article 13.2. Guarantee of hidden defects
The SELLER is bound by the guarantee for hidden defects of the PRODUCT sold that make it unfit for the use for which it is intended, or that reduce this use so much that the CUSTOMER would not have acquired it, or would have given only a lower price, if he had known about them.
This guarantee allows the CUSTOMER who can prove the existence of a hidden defect to choose between the refund of the price of the PRODUCT if it is returned and the refund of part of its price, if the PRODUCT is not returned.
In the event that a replacement or repair is impossible, the SELLER undertakes to return the price of the PRODUCT within thirty (30) days of receipt of the returned PRODUCT and in exchange for the return of the PRODUCT by the CUSTOMER to the following address
STDS - ZA de la Mare - 12 rue des Trois Saules - 77930 St Sauveur sur Ecole.
The action resulting from hidden defects must be brought by the CUSTOMER within two (2) years from the discovery of the defect.
Article 14. Responsibility
The SELLER cannot be held liable under any circumstances in the event of non-performance or poor performance of the contractual obligations attributable to the CUSTOMER, in particular when entering his order.
