The sale will not be considered valid until full payment has been received. It is the Customer's responsibility to check the accuracy of the order and to report any errors immediately.

Any order placed on the europaband.fr website constitutes the formation of a distance contract between the Customer and the Seller.

The Vendor reserves the right to cancel or refuse any order from a Customer with whom there is a dispute over payment of a previous order.

The Customer can follow the progress of his order on the website.

ARTICLE 3 Bis - Customer area - Account

In order to place an order, the Customer is invited to create an account (personal space).

To do so, he/she must register by filling in the form provided at the time of ordering, and undertakes to provide truthful and accurate information concerning his/her civil status and contact details, in particular his/her e-mail address.

The Customer is responsible for updating the information provided. They may modify this information by logging into their account.

To access his personal space and order history, the Customer must identify himself using his strictly personal user name and password, which will be sent to him after registration. The Customer agrees not to divulge them to any third party. Should this not be the case, the Customer shall remain solely responsible for any use made thereof.

The Customer may also request to unsubscribe by going to the dedicated page in his/her personal space or by sending an e-mail to: contact@europaband.fr. Unsubscription will take effect within a reasonable time.

In the event of non-compliance with the general terms and conditions of sale and/or use, the europaband.fr website may suspend or even close a customer's account after formal notice has been sent by e-mail and has remained without effect.

Any deletion of an account, for whatever reason, will result in the deletion of all the customer's personal information.

The Vendor shall not be held liable for any event due to force majeure resulting in malfunction of the site or server, subject to any interruption or modification in the event of maintenance.

The creation of an account implies acceptance of the present terms and conditions of sale.

ARTICLE 4 - Terms of payment

The price is paid by secure payment, according to the following methods:

  • payment by credit card

  • or payment by Paypal
  • or payment by cheque

  • or payment by money order if eligible
  • or payment by bank transfer to the Vendor's bank account (details of which are communicated to the Customer when the order is placed)

The price is payable in full by the Customer on the day the order is placed.

Payment data is exchanged in encrypted mode using the protocol defined by the approved payment service provider for banking transactions carried out on the europaband.fr website.

In the case of payment by cheque, the cheque must be issued by a bank domiciled in metropolitan France or Monaco.

Cheques are cashed on receipt.

Payments made by the Customer will not be considered final until the Vendor has received the sums due.

The Vendor will not be obliged to deliver the Products ordered by the Customer if the latter does not pay the price in full in accordance with the above conditions.

ARTICLE 5 - Delivery

Products ordered by the Customer will be delivered to Metropolitan France or to the following zone(s):

DOM-TOM and Europe.

Delivery must take into account the manufacturing times indicated on the site. After manufacturing, please allow between 24h and 96h to receive the order at the address indicated by the Customer when ordering on the site.

Delivery is constituted by the transfer to the Customer of physical possession or control of the Product. Except in special cases or when one or more Products are unavailable, all Products ordered will be delivered at once.

The Vendor undertakes to use its best efforts to deliver the Products ordered by the Customer within the time limits specified above.

If the Products ordered have not been delivered within 30 days of the indicative delivery date, for any reason other than force majeure or the fault of the Customer, the sale may be cancelled at the written request of the Customer under the conditions set out in articles L 216-2, L 216-3 and L241-4 of the French Consumer Code. The sums paid by the Customer will then be returned to him at the latest within fourteen days following the date of cancellation of the contract, to the exclusion of any compensation or deduction.

Deliveries are made by an independent carrier, to the address given by the Customer at the time of ordering, and to which the carrier has easy access.

If the Customer has chosen a carrier, delivery is deemed to have taken place as soon as the Products ordered have been handed over by the Vendor to the carrier, who has accepted them without reservation. The Customer therefore acknowledges that it is the carrier's responsibility to make the delivery and has no recourse against the Vendor in the event of non-delivery of the goods transported.

In the event of a special request by the Customer concerning the conditions of packaging or transport of the products ordered, duly accepted in writing by the Vendor, the related costs will be subject to specific additional invoicing, on the basis of an estimate previously accepted in writing by the Customer.

The Customer must check the condition of the products delivered. He/she has 7 days from the date of delivery to make any complaints by e-mail to contact@europaband.fr, accompanied by all relevant supporting documents (notably photos). Once this period has elapsed, and if these formalities have not been complied with, the Products will be deemed to be in conformity and free from any apparent defect, and no claim will be validly accepted by the Vendor.

The Vendor will reimburse or replace, as soon as possible and at its own expense, any Products delivered for which the Customer has duly proved the lack of conformity or the apparent or hidden defects, in accordance with the conditions set out in Articles L 217-4 et seq. of the French Consumer Code and those set out in these GTC.

The transfer of the risks of loss and deterioration relating to the Products will only take place when the Customer takes physical possession of the Products. The Products therefore travel at the Seller's risk, except when the Customer has chosen the carrier. In this case, the risks are transferred at the time the goods are handed over to the carrier.

ARTICLE 6 - Transfer of ownership

The transfer of ownership of the Products from the Vendor to the Customer will only take place after full payment of the price by the latter, regardless of the date of delivery of said Products.

ARTICLE 7 - Right of withdrawal

Given the nature of the Products sold, orders placed by the Customer do not benefit from the right of withdrawal.

The contract is therefore definitively concluded as soon as the order is placed by the Customer in accordance with the terms and conditions specified in these GTCS.

ARTICLE 8 - Seller's liability - Warranties

Products supplied by the Vendor benefit from :

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

  • the legal guarantee against hidden defects resulting from a defect in material, design or manufacture affecting the products delivered and rendering them unfit for use,

- it has the qualities that a purchaser may legitimately expect, having regard to public statements made by the seller, the producer or his representative, particularly in advertising or labelling;

This period runs from the date of the buyer's request for service or from the date the item in question is made available for repair, if the item is made available after the request for service.

In order to assert his rights, the Customer must inform the Vendor, in writing (e-mail or letter), of the non-conformity of the Products or the existence of hidden defects as soon as they are discovered.

  • non-compliance with the legislation of the country in which the products are delivered, which it is the Customer's responsibility to check,

  • in the event of misuse, use for professional purposes, negligence or lack of maintenance on the part of the Customer, as well as in the event of normal wear and tear of the Product, accident or force majeure.

  • The photographs and graphics presented on the site are not contractual and do not engage the responsibility of the Vendor.

The Vendor's warranty is, in any event, limited to the replacement or reimbursement of Products that do not conform or are affected by a defect.
