If it is not possible to check the Qiriness Products in the presence of the carrier or the postman or post woman, we recommend that you indicate "subject to reservations" on the delivery or reception slips that may be presented for your signature at delivery of your order and then, upon delivery, unpack and carefully check the condition and conformity of the Qiriness Products. We advise you to inform us as soon as you receive the packages and in writing of any defect or non-conformity.

2. hidden defects of the thing sold under the conditions provided for in articles 1641 and following of the Civil Code

Article L. 217-9 of the French Consumer Code: « In the event of a lack of conformity, the buyer chooses between repairing or replacing the goods. The seller may not proceed according to the buyer's choice if this choice entails a cost that is manifestly disproportionate to the other method, taking into account the value of the good or the importance of the defect. In such a case, the seller is bound to proceed, unless it is impossible, according to the method not chosen by the buyer. »

Article L. 217-10 of the Consumer Code: « If the repair and replacement of the good are impossible, the buyer may return the good and have the price refunded or keep the good and have part of the price refunded. »

The same faculty is open to him:

1° If the solution requested, proposed or agreed in application of article L. 217-9 cannot be implemented within one month following the buyer's complaint;

2° Or if this solution cannot be implemented without major inconvenience for the buyer, taking into account the nature of the goods and the use he is seeking.

However, the sale may not be rescinded if the lack of conformity is minor".

In case of non-conformity of the product, in particular because of an anomaly or an error on the references delivered:

- the Vendor sends the exchange product at his expense, on condition that the Buyer first returns the product to the Vendor in the state in which the Buyer received it.

- The Buyer may choose to return the product to the Seller and obtain a refund, which will be made within a maximum period of 30 days following the Buyer's request.

The cost of returning the non-conforming product will be reimbursed by the Seller.
