Article 3: Information accessible on the Site and limitations of responsibility of the Company relating to this information
The Company takes the greatest care in putting the information and data available free of charge on the Site and in updating them. The Company shall not be held responsible for any inaccuracies, errors or omissions and undertakes to correct them as soon as they are brought to its attention. The Company shall not be held responsible for :

- the impossibility of momentarily accessing the Site, due to facts beyond its control, such as interruptions of the Internet network or failure of the Customer's equipment to receive the Internet network.
Article 4 : Orders
Any order of a Product proposed on the Site supposes the consultation and the express acceptance of the present General Conditions of Sale and General Conditions of Use, without however that this acceptance is conditioned by a handwritten signature of the Customer.
Ordering on the Site is subject to strict compliance with the procedure described below. It is made concrete online by a succession of different screens on which are indicated the different steps that the Customer must complete to validate his order with the Company. Orders are placed online, in accordance with the Site's order form (click: Add to cart).
The Client agrees that the information provided to the Company is complete, accurate and up-to-date. In case of incomplete or inaccurate information, the Company reserves the right to cancel the order and the payment. The order may be made to a delivery address different from the billing address. The Company reserves the right to refuse or cancel any order from a Customer with whom it is in dispute regarding a previous order.
Any Corporate Customer wishing to make a group purchase is invited to contact Customer Service at +33 01 55 42 00 00 (toll free). Indeed, a Corporate Customer will not be able to make a group purchase and benefit from the advantages of an individual Customer.
The Company reserves the right to refuse or cancel the order if it considers that the Customer is engaged in the distribution or economic activity of the Products ordered, or for any other legitimate reason. In accordance with the French Data Protection Act of January 6, 1978, the Customer has the right to access, modify, rectify and delete personal data concerning him. To exercise this right, it is enough to send a letter to the following address Customer Service C.I.L Services, 35 quai de la Tournelle 75005 Paris.
On the order form, the Customer must enter and validate the identification and the quantity of the ordered Products (whose availability is to be confirmed if necessary by the Company), as well as the purchase prices (also to be confirmed if necessary by the Company). As this is an exclusively retail sale, the quantity that a Customer may order of a given reference is automatically limited, in accordance with the recommendations issued in this regard by the Company. It is specified that a single Customer may only order a maximum of 3 products of the same reference, per order.
In case of an order of a higher quantity on the same reference, the order will be considered as void. The online Customer can freely fill his Shopping Cart online, delete an item he no longer wishes to purchase, modify the quantities ordered or add a Product by clicking on the corresponding buttons.
The Customer must then validate the billing address and the place of delivery, as well as the chosen method of payment: bank card or bank check. The bank checks accepted for payment, by the Company only, are checks issued by a bank or financial institution located in France. Once all this information has been duly entered and validated, the Client clicks on the "Validate" button and his order form is directly transmitted to the Company's Online Shop. The Customer's order number is then displayed. Orders are binding on the Client as soon as the Company receives the order form, duly completed and validated by the Client by clicking on the "Validate" button.
The order will then be confirmed by the Company to the Client by sending an e-mail, including all the information communicated by the Client with an indication of any difficulties or reservations raised by the order (availability of the ordered Products or chosen method of payment).
The order will then be delivered under the conditions of article 9 only once the full payment of the order has been received and validly cashed by the Company under the conditions of article 8.3.
Article 5 : Right of withdrawal
In accordance with article L. 121-20 of the French Consumer Code, the Customer has a period of 14 working days from the receipt of his order to return, at his own expense, any Product that does not suit him according to the procedure described in article 11.1 below. In order to allow the Company to follow the withdrawal files as well as possible in its systems, it is strongly recommended to the Customers to notify the exercise of the right of withdrawal by registered mail with acknowledgement of receipt to the following address C.I.L Services, 35 quai de la Tournelle 75005 Paris, indicating clearly and legibly their contact details, the references of their order as well as a copy of the purchase invoice in the same name.
In accordance with the provisions of Article L 121-20-1 of the Consumer Code, when the Customer exercises his right of withdrawal and returns the Products, the Company is obliged to reimburse him the totality of the sums paid, including the cost of the first shipment, as soon as possible after receipt of the returned order and at the latest within thirty days following the date on which this right was exercised, by any means of payment.

Any complaint concerning the invoices must be brought to the attention of the Company by e-mail within 10 days of their receipt ("contact us" section).

8.3 - Means of payment
8.3.1 - Electronic payment
Electronic payment is made after clicking on "CB, VISA payment". The transaction is then carried out by the Customer according to the banking security standards.

The Client therefore authorizes his bank in advance to debit his account on the basis of the records or statements transmitted by the Company, even in the absence of invoices signed by the cardholder. The authorization to debit the Client's account is always given for the amount of the Product purchased and any shipping costs as invoiced by the Company. The online payment is made on a secure payment platform. The Client accesses a secure server operating in SSL mode and certified by a Certification Authority.
