GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SALE OF PRODUCTS 


Article 1 - Application and enforceability of the General Terms and Conditions of Sale 


These General Terms and Conditions of Sale (hereinafter referred to as "the GTCs") exclusively govern the sale of our products on the website www.byluna.re (hereinafter referred to as "the Site"). 


Consequently, the fact of purchasing our products implies the full and unreserved adherence of the buyer to the GTC. Also, the validation by the buyer of his order on the Site implies acceptance by him of the GTC. Unless proven otherwise, the data recorded on the Site constitutes proof of all transactions between our company and the buyer. 


The fact that our company does not at any given time invoke any of the clauses of these GTC shall in no way be interpreted as a waiver by our company of the right to invoke any of these clauses at a later date. Similarly, any condition, contrary to the GTC, requested by the buyer that is not accepted by our company is unenforceable against us. 


Article 2 - Orders 


The buyer has the possibility to place his order online only if he has completed the order form on the Site. Orders placed on the Site are recorded as soon as the order is validated by the buyer. However, the order only becomes final when it has been confirmed by our company. 


The contractual information and the General Terms and Conditions are presented on the Site in French and will be confirmed by our company at the latest at the time of delivery of the products. 


Our company reserves the right to cancel or refuse any order from a buyer with whom there is a dispute over payment of a previous order.  


Article 3 - Availability and quantity ordered 


Our product offers and prices are valid as long as they are visible on our Site, within the limits of available stocks. 


In the event of the unavailability of one or more products after the buyer's order has been placed, except in the cases of force majeure provided for in Article 14 below, the buyer will be notified and will have the possibility to cancel his order. The refund of the sums paid will then be made by credit to the buyer's bank account or by bank cheque sent to his name at the billing address, within 30 days from the payment of the order by the buyer. 


Article 4 - Prices - Transfer of ownership 


4.1. The prices of the products are indicated in euros and include the costs of handling, packaging and storage of the products but not the shipping costs. 


For European Union countries, prices are inclusive of all taxes (including VAT), the VAT applied being that of the day of the order. Any change in VAT rates will be automatically reflected in the price of the products. 


For other countries, prices are exclusive of VAT. The shipping costs of the products depend on where they are delivered, i. e: 


- Delivery in the DOM - TOM and foreign countries - standard delivery to the address he will indicate, with a letter box delivery without signature with a participation of the buyer, at least 5 euros including VAT, at the shipping costs. 


- Metropolitan France delivery: All deliveries in metropolitan France and abroad are systematically treated as "international delivery" according to the postal rates in force on the day the order is placed. Outside the European Union, customs or import taxes may be added to the price of our products and remain the responsibility of the buyer. It is therefore the buyer's responsibility to check the amount with his local customs office. 


4.2. Our company reserves the right to change the price of the products at any time. However, the products will be invoiced on the basis of the prices in force at the time of the order by the buyer. 


4.3. The products remain the property of our company until full payment of their price to our company. 


4.4. Discounts are not cumulative. 

Article 5 - Delivery 


5.1 - General The products are delivered to the delivery address indicated by the buyer when ordering. 


The buyer is required to carry out all the necessary due diligence to ensure that the delivery is carried out correctly. As such, he is required to provide all the information necessary for delivery (exact address, door code, etc.). Failing this, our company cannot be held responsible for a failure to deliver. In such a case, the products will be returned to our company's warehouse and the buyer must contact our Customer Service whose details are indicated in Article 10 in order to take note of the steps to follow to recover the ordered products. Our company declines any responsibility as for the delay of recovery by the buyer of its products. 


5.2 - Time limits 


Orders are processed within 72 hours.


If the entire order is not available, our company will contact the buyer to propose to replace the unavailable product(s) with one or more other products. In the event of refusal by the buyer, our company will proceed either to the refund of the unavailable products or to split shipments, according to the choice of the buyer. For the balance of the order, shipping costs will not be charged. 


If the products have not been delivered on time, except in cases of force majeure as provided for in Article 14 below, our company will contact the buyer to propose alternative solutions. In the event of refusal by the buyer, our company will proceed either to the refund of the order, or to a deferred shipment according to the choice of the buyer. For the balance of the order, shipping costs will not be charged. 


Similarly, if the products have been shipped after the maximum periods referred to in the above paragraph, the buyer may also cancel his order and request a refund for the complete returned products, in their original state accompanied by the purchase invoice, as well as the return costs. 


In any case, delivery within the time limits provided for can only take place if the buyer is up to date with his payments to our company.
