In this case, the costs that may be incurred for this new delivery will be fully borne by the Customer.
Each delivery is deemed to have been made as soon as the Product is handed over to the Customer or its agent, materialized by the system used by the carrier if necessary.
It is the Customer's responsibility to check the condition of the Products on the day of their receipt and to formulate any dispute, reservations or refusal on the carrier's delivery slip, specifying precisely the reason for the reservation formulated (eg: carton of damaged packaging, missing or damaged product). In the event of damage or missing items, the Customer must refuse delivery.
In such a case, the Customer must, within 48 hours, send HARCOUR an e-mail indicating his dispute, his refusal, his reservations. The internet address to use is as follows: firstname.lastname@example.org

The payment cards accepted to date are: Carte Bleue, VISA card and MASTERCARD card.
In the event of payment by credit card, the Customer provides the 16-digit number of his credit card associated with its expiry date as well as the last three digits of the cryptogram appearing on the back of his credit card.
When the bank details are validated, the secure remote payment manager sends an authorization request to the bank card network.

The Customer guarantees that he is fully authorized to use the payment card provided for the payment of his order and that this card gives access to sufficient funds to cover all the costs resulting from this order.
The validation of his order by the Customer by means of his payment automatically generates an invoice.
The obligation to pay is fulfilled insofar as the bank payment centers concerned have given their agreement. In the event of refusal by the said centers, the order will be automatically canceled and the Customer sent back to the Site to place a new order, if necessary.
Said invoice is sent to the Customer by e-mail to the e- mail address indicated.

Payment can also be made by PayPal account.
If the payment method selected by the Customer is not possible, in particular due to too low a bank account balance or incorrect bank details, the Customer is responsible for all costs incurred by the intervention of a third party to resolve the payment.
HARCOUR owns the rights to use a third party to transfer payments.
If payment is delayed, HARCOUR may engage a debt collection agency and transfer all personal data to complete payment.
In the event that a third party is engaged to make the payment, the transfer of payment is completed only if the payment stipulated by the third party is paid in full, so that the third party can transfer this money without reservation from HARCOUR.
If the method of payment chosen by the Customer is not possible, even being offered by HARCOUR in accordance with the contract, and this due to a lack of income on the Customer's account or the transmission of incorrect data, the Customer must reimburse HARCOUR and/or the third party mandated by HARCOUR to control the payment of the costs incurred.
By “payment”, it is meant that HARCOUR collects the sums due to it and not the delivery of the means of payment. No compensation can take place between reciprocal claims unless it has been previously accepted in writing by HARCOUR. Under no circumstances may a dispute or a claim allow the Customer to suspend payment.
ARTICLE 10: RIGHT OF WITHDRAWAL
Pursuant to Articles L.221-18 and following of the Consumer Code, the Customer has a withdrawal period of 30 clear days from the date of receipt of the Products ordered.
To exercise his right of withdrawal for the purchase of Products, the Customer must, within the period indicated above, submit his request for return to HARCOUR; this request is made on the site www.harcour.fr, in his personal space, from the page retracing the details of his order; the process is explained in a page accessible from the link "Withdrawal procedure - product return" located in the footer menu of the site.
The Customer must return the Products to HARCOUR at the latest within 30 days of the communication of its decision to withdraw, in their perfect condition and original packaging, without any trace or mark, still labeled, with all possible accessories ( including any notices or documents explaining or presenting the HARCOUR warranty), accompanied by a duplicate invoice.
The consumer's liability can only be incurred in the event of depreciation of the goods resulting from manipulations other than those necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and proper functioning of these goods, provided that the professional has informed the consumer of his right of withdrawal, in accordance with 2° of article L. 221-5. The use of the Product beyond the simple test, comes to depreciate the Product.
Only the risks and costs of returning the products remain the responsibility of the Customer, except for depreciation of the Product.
If all of the conditions required for the return of the Products are not met, HARCOUR may deduct from the sums to be reimbursed, where applicable, a share of the sale price corresponding to the sale price of the missing Products, as well as the repair, replacement and/or restoration of any damaged/depreciated Products.
If all the conditions required for the return of the Products are met, HARCOUR undertakes to exchange the product(s) concerned as far as possible and if such was the wish of the customer, or else to reimburse the Customer within a period of 14 days from receipt of the products. In all cases, HARCOUR is entitled to defer reimbursement until effective recovery of the Products.
Reimbursement is made directly to the Customer's bank account, using the same methods as those used to pay for the Products in question, unless the Customer expressly agrees to the use of another means of payment.
ARTICLE 11: LIABILITY - GUARANTEES
HARCOUR is bound by the legal guarantees in force, namely the legal guarantee of conformity (articles L.217-4 and following of the Consumer Code) and the legal guarantee against hidden defects provided for in articles 1641 and following of the Civil Code.
When acting as a legal guarantee of conformity, the Customer:
• benefits from a period of 2 years from delivery of the Product to act;
• can choose between the repair or the replacement of the Product. HARCOUR may nevertheless not proceed according to the Customer's choice when this choice entails a manifestly disproportionate cost with regard to the other method, taking into account the value of the Product or the importance of the defect.
• is exempted from providing proof of the existence of the lack of conformity of the Product for 24 months from the delivery of the Product.
However, the guarantee of conformity does not apply if:
• the Customer was aware of the defect at the time of purchase;
• the Customer could not have been unaware of the defect at the time of purchase (for example, if the seller informed you of it);
• the defect results from materials added or supplied by the Customer.
Any Product return must be subject to the express agreement of HARCOUR. It will give rise to the repair or replacement of the Product concerned, after qualitative and quantitative verification of the returned Product. The costs and risks of the return remain the responsibility of the Customer if the non-compliance is not proven.
Items must be returned by the Customer under the following conditions:
• in their original packaging;
• complete (accessories, manuals, etc.);
• neither damaged nor deteriorated;
• accompanied by the corresponding original invoice.
In general, HARCOUR's liability can only be incurred in the event of proven fault on its part. In such a case, its liability is limited to direct, personal and certain damages that the Customer has suffered, with the express exclusion of compensation for any indirect and immaterial damages and/or losses, such as financial losses, damage to the picture, etc.
In any case, HARCOUR declines all responsibility for the fact in particular:
• normal wear and tear of the Products, in particular related to their use;
• use that does not comply with the use for which the Product is intended;
• damage or accidents resulting from negligence, lack of supervision or maintenance or improper use;
• damage resulting from modifications, incorporation or association of the Product;
• damage resulting from a breach of the recommendations for use of the Products mentioned in the Product description, communicated by any means by HARCOUR and/or specific regulations relating to the Products sold.
• malicious acts of the Customer or third parties.
The shades and colors of certain Products may vary slightly depending on the manufacture and depending on their aging over time. Consequently, HARCOUR cannot guarantee the shade, the color in relation to a visual presentation of the products.
Finally, HARCOUR cannot be held liable for damage, temporary or permanent, caused to the Customer's computer system or for any loss or damage that may be suffered in particular following access to or browsing on the Site.
The transmission of data via the Internet may lead to the appearance of errors and/or the fact that the Site is not always available. Consequently, HARCOUR cannot be held responsible for the availability and interruption of the online service.
ARTICLE 12: FORCE MAJEURE
In the event of the occurrence of a case of force majeure preventing the performance of the obligations by HARCOUR, the contract will be immediately suspended, from the notification made by HARCOUR to the Customer. Similarly, HARCOUR will inform the Customer of the cessation of this event and the performance of the contract will resume immediately on the date of this notification.
A case of force majeure is considered to be any event beyond the control of HARCOUR, which could not reasonably have been foreseen when the contract was concluded, the effects of which cannot be avoided by appropriate measures, and which prevents the execution of its obligation by the debtor.
In addition to the cases usually retained by French case law as being cases of force majeure, it is agreed to consider as such the following events insofar as they are likely to hinder the performance of the contract: fire, storm, flood, earthquake of land, total or partial strikes, internal or external to the company, lockout of the company, disruption of means of transport or lines of communication, failure of the carrier, acts of government, modifications of the regulations applicable to the present General Conditions of Sale or Products.
If such an event were to continue beyond a period of one consecutive month after the date of its notification by HARCOUR to the Customer, the contract will be considered automatically terminated. Any sums received by HARCOUR before this date would then be reimbursed to the Customer.
ARTICLE 13: INTELLECTUAL/INDUSTRIAL PROPERTY
The HARCOUR trademarks and the design of the HARCOUR Products are the exclusive property of the latter and a sale does not constitute a license to use these rights or titles.
The plans, patterns and studies carried out by HARCOUR for the manufacture of its Products are always the property of the latter and are the subject of an intellectual property right and/or an industrial property right which undertakes to respect the customer.
