– the legal guarantee of conformity, for apparently defective, damaged or damaged Products or Products that do not correspond to the order,

10-1 . Legal guarantee of conformity
The Seller undertakes to deliver a good in conformity with the contractual description as well as with the criteria set out in Article L217-5 of the Consumer Code
The Buyer is liable for any lack of conformity existing at the time of delivery of the Products and which appears within two years from the date of delivery.
This warranty period applies without prejudice to Articles 2224et seq. of the Civil Code, the limitation period starting to run on the day the Customer becomes aware of the lack of conformity.
Defects of conformity which appear within twenty-four months or twelve months if it is a second-hand good as from the delivery of the Products, are, unless proven otherwise, presumed to exist at the time of delivery.
In the event of a lack of conformity, the Customer may demand that the delivered Products be repaired or replaced or, failing that, that the price be reduced or that the sale be terminated, in accordance with the law.
He may also suspend the payment of all or part of the price or the remittance of the benefit provided for in the contract until the Seller has fulfilled his obligations under the legal guarantee of conformity, under the conditions of Articles 1219and 1220 of the Civil Code.
It is the Customer’s responsibility to ask the Seller to bring the Products into conformity, by choosing between repair and replacement. The compliance of the good takes place within a period not exceeding thirty days following the request of the Customer.
Repair or replacement of non-conforming Product includes, if applicable, removal and return of the Product and installation of the conforming or replaced Product.
Any Product brought into conformity within the framework of the legal guarantee of conformity benefits from an extension of this guarantee of six months.
In the event of replacement of the non-conforming Product when, despite the Customer’s choice, the Seller has not brought the Product into conformity, the replacement shall give rise to a new period of legal warranty of conformity for the benefit of the Customer, starting from the delivery of the replaced Product.
If the requested compliance is impossible or involves disproportionate costs under the conditions provided for in Article L 217-12 of the Consumer Code, the Seller may refuse it. If the conditions provided for in Article L 217-12 of the Consumer Code are not met, the Customer may, after formal notice, pursue the forced execution in kind of the solution initially requested, in accordance with Articles 1221 and following of the Civil Code.
Finally, the Customer may demand a price reduction or the cancellation of the sale (except if the lack of conformity is minor) in the cases provided for in Article L 217-14 of the Consumer Code.
When the lack of conformity is so serious that it justifies the reduction of the price or the immediate cancellation of the sale, the Customer is not then required to request prior repair or replacement of the non-conforming Product.
The price reduction is proportional to the difference between the value of the delivered Product and the value of this good in the absence of the lack of conformity.
In case of cancellation of the sale, the Customer shall be reimbursed the price paid in exchange for the return of the non-conforming Products to the Seller, at the latter’s expense.
The refund is made upon receipt of the non-conforming Product or proof of its return by the Customer and at the latest within fourteen days thereafter, with the same means of payment as used by the Customer at the time of payment, unless expressly agreed by the latter and in any case without additional cost.
The foregoing provisions are without prejudice to the possible awarding of damages to the Customer for the loss suffered by the latter due to the lack of conformity.
10-2 . Legal warranty against hidden defects
The Seller is responsible for hidden defects within the framework of the legal guarantee against hidden defects resulting from a defect in material, design or manufacture affecting the products delivered and making them unfit for use.
The Customer may decide to implement the warranty against hidden defects of the Products in accordance with Article 1641 of the Civil Code; in this case, he/she may choose between the resolution of the sale or a reduction of the sale price in accordance with Article 1644 of the Civil Code.
10-3 . Exclusion of guarantees
The responsibility of the Seller shall not be engaged in the following cases:
– non-compliance with the legislation of the country in which the Products are delivered, which the Customer must check before placing the order,
