The Products must be returned by the Customer, at his/her expense, in their original state, complete, in good condition, and accompanied by the purchase invoice to the following address SAS HENRI BOURGEOIS, Customer Service, BP 16 – CHAVIGNOL – 18300 SANCERRE.

The refund will be made using the same payment method as the one used by the Customer for the initial transaction.

In accordance with Article L.221-28 of the French Consumer Code, “the right of withdrawal cannot be exercised for contracts: (…) 12° for the provision of services (…) for leisure activities that must be provided on a specific date or during a specific period of time”.
The Customer does not have a right of withdrawal for the Services ordered on the Site since they are reserved for a specific date and time.
Article 10: Warranty on the Products
SAS HENRI BOURGEOIS shall be held liable for any Product conformity defects in accordance with the provisions of article L. 217-1 et seq. and for any hidden defects in accordance with the provisions of articles 1641 et seq. of the French Civil Code.
The consumer has a period of two years from the delivery of the goods to obtain the implementation of the legal guarantee of conformity in case of appearance of a defect of conformity. During this period, the consumer is only required to establish the existence of the lack of conformity and not the date of its appearance.
The legal guarantee of conformity gives the consumer the right to repair or replace the good within thirty days of his request, without charge and without major inconvenience to him.
If the good is repaired under the legal guarantee of conformity, the consumer benefits from a six-month extension of the initial guarantee.
If the consumer asks for the good to be repaired, but the seller imposes a replacement, the legal guarantee of conformity is renewed for a period of two years from the date of the replacement of the good.
The consumer may obtain a reduction in the purchase price by keeping the good or terminate the contract by obtaining a full refund in exchange for the return of the good, if:
1° The trader refuses to repair or replace the goods;
2° The repair or replacement of the goods takes place after a period of thirty days;
3° The repair or replacement of the good causes a major inconvenience for the consumer, in particular when the consumer definitively bears the cost of taking back or removing the non-conforming good, or if he bears the cost of installing the repaired or replaced good;
4° The non-conformity of the goods persists despite the seller’s attempt to bring the goods into conformity, which has been unsuccessful.
The consumer is also entitled to a reduction in the price of the goods or to rescission of the contract when the lack of conformity is so serious that it justifies the reduction in price or the rescission of the contract being immediate. The consumer is then not obliged to ask for the repair or replacement of the goods beforehand.
The consumer is not entitled to rescind the sale if the lack of conformity is minor.
Any period of immobilization of the good for repair or replacement suspends the warranty that was still running until the delivery of the good in its original condition.
The rights mentioned above result from the application of articles L. 217-1 to L. 217-32 of the Consumer Code.
A seller who obstructs in bad faith the implementation of the legal guarantee of conformity is liable to a civil fine of up to 300,000 euros, which may be increased to 10% of the average annual turnover (Article L. 241-5 of the Consumer Code).
The consumer also benefits from the legal guarantee of hidden defects pursuant to Articles 1641 to 1649 of the Civil Code, for a period of two years from the discovery of the defect. This guarantee gives the right to a price reduction if the good is kept or to a full refund against return of the good.
The request for replacement or reimbursement of the Products is made directly by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
When the Products must be returned, they must be sent to SAS HENRI BOURGEOIS – Route de Menetou-Râtel – CHAVIGNOL – 18300 SANCERRE, with the return slip that will be sent to the Customer by the customer service.
In the event of a request for reimbursement and subject to confirmation of the existence of the lack of conformity or latent defect, the Client shall be reimbursed the total amount paid, including shipping and return fees, no later than fourteen (14) days following receipt of the Products by SAS HENRI BOURGEOIS.
Given the specific nature of the Products requiring the respect of certain storage conditions necessary for their proper preservation (control of temperature, luminosity, and hygrometry), all Products that have suffered deterioration or degradation resulting from their preservation in conditions likely to alter them are excluded from the guarantee.

SAS HENRI BOURGEOIS hosts the notices and comments of the Clients accessible on the Site.
The notices and comments will be published under the first name and initial of the Customer’s name.

12.5. Consequences of closing an Account
