General terms and conditions of sale of the Lâg Hyvibe e-commerce site
Date of last update 02 October 2019
Article 1 – General
These conditions govern the sales made by Algam through its website Lâg Guitars.
Any order of products through the site implies the unreserved acceptance by the customer of these general terms and conditions of sale. Consequently, any order placed by the customer can only be definitively validated after express acceptance, without restriction or reservation, of these general terms and conditions of sale.
Algam reserves the right to modify its terms and conditions of sale at any time and without notice. In this case, the applicable conditions will be those in force on the date of the order by the customer.
Article 2 – Order
The contractual information is presented in French and will be confirmed at the latest when your order is validated. Algam reserves the right to cancel an order in the event of missing or incorrect information, not to record payment, and not to confirm an order for any reason whatsoever, and more particularly in the event of a supply problem, or in the event of a difficulty with the order received.
The customer guarantees to have full legal capacity to proceed with the order and adhere to these general terms and conditions of sale. The visuals offered on the Lâg Guitars website are as faithful as possible but cannot ensure a perfect similarity with the products ordered.
Article 3 – Order validation
Any order implies the full and complete acceptance by the customer of these general terms and conditions of sale, without exception or reservation. All the data provided and the recorded confirmation will be worth proof of the transaction.
The customer declares that he is fully aware of this. The order confirmation shall be deemed to be a signature and acceptance of the operations carried out.
A summary of the order information will be provided via the order confirmation email address.
Article 4 – Paiement
The fact of validating an order implies for the customer the obligation to pay the indicated price. Payment for purchases is made by credit card using the secure PayPal system or by bank transfer.
In the case of payment by PayPal, the debit is made at the time of order.
In the case of payment by bank transfer, receipt of the full amount to be paid triggers the processing of the order. If the payment is not received within 7 days, Lâg Guitars will cancel the order.
Bank transfers can be made to the Algam SAS account (account number 30446843000 – BIC SWIFT AGRIFRPP847 – RIB 14706 00064 30446843000 80).
In the case of orders outside the euro zone, invoicing will be carried out duty-free.
Article 5 – Eco-tax
Algam is a member of the Eco-Systèmes organization, which ensures collection and recycling obligations on behalf of its members. The cost of this Eco-tax is displayed on the Lâg Guitars website and on the invoices. All information is available on the website: www.eco-systemes.fr
Article 6.1 – Product descriptions and specifications
Algam takes the greatest care in putting online information relating to the essential characteristics of products, in particular by means of technical descriptions from its suppliers and product specialists, and photographs illustrating the products.
In any event, Algam cannot be held liable for any changes or errors in the description of the characteristics of the product purchased, unless, however, the essential characteristics of the product are affected.
The characteristics of the articles, descriptive notices, photographic photographs or drawings carried on this site are not contractual.
Article 6.2 – Prices and shipping costs
The prices of our products are indicated in euros all taxes included (VAT and other taxes applicable on the day of the order), or in dollars excluding tax, depending on the selected country, unless otherwise indicated and excluding processing and shipping costs.
The prices indicated are valid unless there is a gross error. The applicable price is the one indicated on the site on the date the order is placed by the customer.
In the event of an order to a country outside France, you are the importer of the product(s) concerned. Customs duties or other local taxes or import duties or state taxes may be payable. These duties and sums do not fall within the jurisdiction of Algam. They will be the responsibility of the customer and are his sole responsibility, both in terms of declarations and payments to the competent authorities and bodies in your department, region or community. We advise the client to check with local authorities for information on these aspects.
All orders, regardless of their origin, are payable in euros or dollars. Algam reserves the right to modify its prices at any time, but the product will be invoiced on the basis of the price list in effect at the time of validation of the order and subject to availability.
The products remain the property of Algam until full payment of the price. As soon as the customer physically takes possession of the ordered products, the risk of loss or damage to the products is transferred to him.
Shipping costs are calculated according to the selected delivery method and are specified in the customer’s order process. They are recalled in the summary of the order that precedes the validation.
Article 7 – Withdrawal
The customer has a period of 30 days from the receipt of his products to exercise his right of withdrawal without having to justify any reasons or pay any penalty.
All requests for return under the right of withdrawal must be requested in advance from Lâg Guitars customer service. Returns must be made in their original and complete condition (packaging, accessories, instructions). The returned product must also be in perfect condition. In this context, the customer is liable. Any damage suffered by the product on this occasion may be of such a nature as to defeat the right of withdrawal.
In the case of a withdrawal, the costs of returns via post or carrier are the responsibility of the customer.
In the event of exercise of the right of withdrawal, Algam will refund the sums paid within 30 days of notification of your request and via the same means of payment as the one used when placing the order. However, Algam may defer reimbursement until the products are actually received or until the customer has provided proof of shipment of the products, whichever comes first.
In accordance with the provisions of Article L.221-18 of the Consumer Code, the right of withdrawal does not apply in certain cases, such as:
– The supply of goods which have been unsealed by the consumer after delivery and which cannot be returned for reasons of hygiene or health protection;
– The supply of goods which, after having been delivered and because of their nature, are inextricably mixed with other items;
– The supply of goods made to consumer specifications or clearly personalised;
– The supply of audio or video recordings or computer software when they have been unsealed by the consumer after delivery;
– Spare parts;
– The provision of digital content not provided on a material medium, the execution of which has begun after prior express consent of the consumer and express waiver of his right of withdrawal.
Article 8 – Availability
The products are offered on the Lâg Guitars website within the limits of available stocks. For products not in stock, offers are valid subject to availability from Algam’s suppliers.
In case of unavailability of the product after placing an order, the customer will be informed by email or phone. The order will be automatically cancelled and the customer will be refunded the amounts that have been collected by Algam.
Article 9 – Shipping
The products are delivered to the delivery address indicated during the ordering process.
In accordance with legal provisions, in the event of late delivery, the customer has the right to cancel the order under the terms and conditions defined in Article L 216-2 of the Consumer Code. If in the meantime the customer receives the product, Algam will refund it and pay the shipping costs under the conditions of article L 216-3 of the Consumer Code.
In the event of deliveries by a partner carrier, Algam cannot be held liable for late delivery due exclusively to the unavailability of the customer after several appointments.
In the event of a damaged package, the customer must refuse delivery and mention a precise reservation, describing the condition of the packaging or products. Lâg Guitars customer service will then contact the customer to propose an exchange or refund.
In the event of a dispute about your signature collected upon delivery of the products, you may be asked to send us a letter of denial of signature, accompanied by a copy of your identity document and a copy of the complaint filed with the authorities.
In the case of a delivery in a building with several floors, our transport partners will drop off the goods on the ground floor (no delivery on the floors).
Article 10 – Return
Whatever the reason for the return, the customer must use the form available on the Lâg Guitars website. A number will be assigned for each return and must be completed on the form accompanying the returned products. The products must be returned in their original and complete condition (over-packaging, packaging, accessories and instructions), as well as the return form. Otherwise, the return will be refused. The shipment of the goods by the customer must be made within 15 days of the publication of the return number.
In the case of a withdrawal, the costs of returns via post or carrier are the responsibility of the customer.
In the event of an unpacking failure or a return under warranty, Algam will return the repaired product or an equivalent product to the customer at its expense. In this case, the return costs are to be borne by Algam, via shipment by post, relay or carrier.
In the context of a request for repair outside the warranty, the return costs will systematically be borne by the customer, whether the return is made by post, relay or carrier.
Article 11 – Waranty
All products sold on the Lâg Guitars website benefit from the legal guarantee of conformity and the guarantee against hidden defects, provided for by articles 1641 and following of the Civil Code. In the event of non-compliance of a product sold, it may be returned and refunded.
When acting as a legal guarantee of conformity, the customer has a period of two years from the delivery of the goods to act; he can choose between repairing or replacing the goods, subject to the cost conditions provided for in Article L 217-9 of the Consumer Code. The legal guarantee of conformity applies independently of any commercial guarantee granted. The customer may decide to implement the guarantee against hidden defects of the thing sold within the meaning of Article 1641 of the Civil Code; in this case, he may choose between cancelling the sale or reducing the sale price in accordance with Article 1644 of the Civil Code.
All claims and reimbursement requests must be made by e-mail, telephone or contact form available on the Lâg Guitars website within 30 days of delivery.
