Deliveries are made by a carrier selected by the Seller, to the address given by the Customer at the time of the order and to which the carrier will have easy access.When the Customer has taken on the responsibility of using a carrier that he chooses himself, delivery is deemed to have taken place as soon as the Products ordered have been handed over by the Seller to the carrier, who has accepted them without reservation.

10. TRANSFER OF RISK
Regardless of the date of the transfer of ownership of the products, the transfer of the risks of loss and deterioration relating thereto will only be realized at the time when the customer will take physical possession of the products. The products therefore travel at the risk and peril of the seller.
11. RIGHT OF WITHDRAWAL
In accordance with the legal provisions in force, the Customer has a period of fourteen days from receipt of the Product to exercise his right of withdrawal from the Seller, without having to justify his reasons or pay any penalty, for the purpose of exchange or refund.
For this purpose, the Product must be returned within 14 days of the notification to the Seller of the Customer's decision to withdraw from the contract to the address communicated to him by the Seller when the Customer has expressed his intention to return the Product.
If the Client has ordered several Products via a single order giving rise to several deliveries (or in the case of an order for a single PRODUCT delivered in several batches), the withdrawal period shall expire fourteen (14) days after the day on which the Client, or a third party other than the carrier and designated by the Client, takes physical possession of the last good.
The Customer shall only be liable for the depreciation of the good resulting from manipulations other than those necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and proper functioning of the Product. In other words, the Customer has the possibility to test the Product, but he/she may be held liable if he/she carries out manipulations other than those that are strictly necessary.
The Customer may exercise his right of withdrawal by any unambiguous statement expressing the wish to withdraw sent by e-mail to the address email@example.com
The exchange or refund of the returned Product(s) will be carried out by the Seller under the conditions detailed in the returns policy accessible.
The Products will be packaged in accordance with the applicable transport standards in order to ensure maximum protection for the Products during delivery.
Customers undertake to respect the same standards when returning Products under the conditions set out in Article 11 - Right of withdrawal.
Apart from the commercial guarantees that the Seller may offer for certain Products, all Customers benefit from "legal" guarantees, for all Products, which are detailed below, in accordance with Article L.111-1 of the Consumer Code.
Article 13.1. Guarantee of conformity
Article L. 217-4 of the French Consumer Code: " The seller delivers goods in conformity with the contract and is liable for any lack of conformity existing at the time of delivery.
He is also liable for any lack of conformity resulting from the packaging, the assembly instructions or the installation when the latter was made his responsibility by the contract or was carried out under his responsibility.
Article L.217-5 of the French Consumer Code: " The goods are in conformity with the contract:
1° If they are fit for the use usually expected of similar goods and, where 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 may legitimately expect in view of the public statements made by the seller, the producer or his representative, particularly 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 seller's attention and accepted by the latter.
The Seller may be liable for defects in conformity existing at the time of delivery and for defects in conformity resulting from the packaging, the assembly instructions or the installation when the latter has been placed at his charge 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 (Article L.217-12 of the Consumer Code)
In the event of a 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 clearly disproportionate to the other option, taking into account the value of the Product or the extent of the defect, the Seller may proceed with a refund, without following the option chosen by the Customer.
In the event that a replacement or repair is impossible, the Seller undertakes to refund the price of the Product within thirty (30) days of receiving the returned Product and in exchange for the return of the Product by the Customer to the address communicated to him by the Seller when the Customer has expressed his intention to return the Product. Finally, the Customer is exempted from proving the existence of a defect in the conformity of the Product during the twenty-four (24) months following the delivery of the Product, except for second-hand goods for which this period is fixed at six (6) months. (Article L. 217-7 of the Consumer Code)
It is specified that this legal guarantee of conformity applies independently of the commercial guarantee granted, if any, on the Products.
Article 13.2 Warranty for hidden defects
The Seller is bound by the warranty for hidden defects in the Product sold which make it unfit for the use for which it was intended, or which reduce this use to such an extent that the Customer would not have acquired it, or would only have given a lower price for it, if he had known about them. (Article 1641 of the Civil Code)
This guarantee allows the Customer who can prove the existence of a hidden defect to choose between a refund of the price of the Product if it is returned and a 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 refund the price of the Product within thirty (30) days upon receipt of the returned Product and in exchange for the return of the Product by the Customer to the following address WETHENEW, 18, rue Edouard Nieuport, 92150 Suresnes.
The action resulting from redhibitory defects must be brought by the Customer within two (2) years of the discovery of the defect. (Paragraph1 of Article 1648 of the Civil Code)
14. LIABILITYThe Vendor shall not be held liable in any way in the event of non-performance or improper performance of contractual obligations attributable to the Customer, in particular when entering his order.
The Seller shall not be liable, or considered to have failed to perform, for any delay or failure to perform when the cause of the delay or failure to perform is related to a case of force majeure as defined by the case law of the French Courts and Tribunals.
It is furthermore specified that the Seller does not control the websites that are directly or indirectly linked to the Site. Consequently, it excludes all responsibility for the information published on them. Links to third party websites are provided for information purposes only and no guarantee is given as to their content.
15. FORCE MAJEURE
The Parties shall not be held liable if the non-performance or delay in the performance of any of their obligations, as described herein, is due to a case of force majeure, within the meaning of Article 1218 of the Civil Code.
Force majeure in contractual matters occurs when an event beyond the debtor's control, which could not reasonably be foreseen at the time of the conclusion of the contract and the effects of which cannot be avoided by appropriate measures, prevents the debtor from performing his obligation.The party observing the event shall without delay inform the other party of its inability to perform its performance and justify it to the latter. The suspension of obligations shall in no case be a cause of liability for non-fulfilment of the obligation in question, nor induce the payment of damages or penalties for delay.
The performance of the obligation is suspended for the duration of the force majeure if it is temporary, unless the resulting delay justifies the termination of the contract.
Consequently, as soon as the cause of the suspension of their mutual obligations disappears, the Parties shall make every effort to resume normal performance of their contractual obligations as quickly as possible. To this end, the Party prevented shall notify the other of the resumption of its obligation by registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt or any extrajudicial act. If the impediment is definitive, the present contract shall be purely and simply cancelled by operation of law and the Parties shall be released from their obligations under the conditions provided for in Articles 1351 and 1351-1 of the Civil Code.
During this suspension, the Parties agree that the costs generated by the situation shall be borne by the prevented Party.

The Seller collects personal data on the Site concerning its Customers which are necessary for the processing of their orders, the drawing up of invoices, the processing of their requests for information and, if the Customer has expressly chosen this option, the sending of newsletters, unless the Customer no longer wishes to receive such communications from the Seller.
