To be able to place an order, the Customer must be of legal age.

When the Customer has completed his order, he will be sent an email with the confirmation of the order and the details of same.

Adding an article to the basket does not mean that it may be reserved for the customer, as other customers may have purchased it while browsing in the web. The product may be reserved for the customer at the time when the payment process is completed.
The price of each product will be determined clearly in the web page. The price and conditions of the products offered may vary, but the price and conditions in force when he placed the order shall always apply for the Customer.

The customer should always consult the delivery expenses in the purchase basket before confirming the order and completing the contracting process.

We will proceed to make this refund using the same means of payment as employed by you for the initial transaction, unless you have expressly specified otherwise; in any case, you will not incur any expense as a result of the refund.
The foregoing notwithstanding, we will be able to withhold the refund until receiving the goods, or until you have submitted evidence of their return, whichever condition is met first, unless we expressly opt for collecting the goods by our own means, of which we would give due notification.
