5.3. Payment by the Client

In the latter two cases, AlbertMenes.fr undertakes to provide a response within 5 working days.

7.2. Right of withdrawal – Distance selling

7.2.1 Conditions for exercising the right of withdrawal

In accordance with the legislation in force on distance selling, the Customer has a period of fourteen clear days to exercise his right of withdrawal without having to justify his reasons or pay penalties, with the exception, where applicable, of the return costs.

The time limit referred to in the previous paragraph shall run from the day on which the distance contract is concluded for contracts relating to the provision of a service and/or the provision of digital content not provided on a material medium, or from the receipt of the goods by the Customer or a third party, other than the carrier, designated by him, for contracts for the sale of goods and contracts for the provision of services including the supply of goods.
In the case of an order for several goods delivered separately or in the case of an order for goods consisting of multiple lots or parts delivered over a defined period, the time limit shall run from receipt of the last good or lot or part. In the case of contracts providing for the regular delivery of goods for a specified period, the period shall run from the date of receipt of the first good.
When the fourteen-day period expires on a Saturday, Sunday or public holiday or non-working day, it is extended until the first following working day.

The decision to withdraw must be notified to AlbertMenes.fr at the address indicated in article 1 of these general conditions by means of an unambiguous declaration. The Customer has, for example, the possibility to use the standard form provided at the end of these general terms and conditions. In any event, AlbertMenes.fr will e-mail the Customer an acknowledgement of receipt of the said withdrawal as soon as possible.

7.2.2 Effects of the right of withdrawal

The Client shall return or return the products to the trader or any person designated by him without undue delay and, at the latest, within fourteen days following communication of his decision to withdraw.

When the right of withdrawal is exercised, the trader is required to reimburse the Client for all sums paid, as soon as possible and at the latest within fourteen days following the date on which this right was exercised. If necessary, the trader may defer reimbursement until the Products are recovered or until the Customer has provided proof of shipment of the Products, at the earlier of the two events. Beyond that, the amount due shall, as of right, bear interest at the legal rate in force, as specified in Article L. 242-4 of the Consumer Code.

Where applicable, the trader will perform the refund using the same means of payment as that used by the Customer for the initial transaction, unless the Customer has given his or her express consent to use another means of payment and provided that the refund does not entail any costs for the Customer. However, the trader is not required to reimburse the additional costs if the Customer has expressly chosen a more expensive delivery method than the proposed standard delivery method.

The direct costs of returning the Product are the responsibility of the Customer. The Customer is liable only for depreciation of the Product resulting from handling other than that necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and proper functioning of this Product.

The conditions, deadlines and procedures for exercising the right of withdrawal are set out in the standard form provided at the end of these general conditions.

7.2.3 Exclusions from the right of withdrawal

The right of withdrawal does not apply, in particular, to contracts:

-to supply goods that are made according to the Customer's specifications or that are clearly personalised;

-to supply goods that are likely to deteriorate or expire quickly;

-to supply goods that have been unsealed by the Customer after delivery and that cannot be returned for reasons of hygiene or health protection;

-to supply goods that, once delivered and by their nature, are inextricably mixed with other items;

-to supply alcoholic beverages whose delivery is deferred beyond 30 days and whose value agreed at the conclusion of the contract depends on fluctuations on the market beyond the control of the trader.

Similarly, the right of withdrawal is not applicable to contracts executed in full by both parties at the express request of the Customer before the latter exercises his right of withdrawal.

7.3. Rescission of the contract at the Customer’s initiative

The Customer acting as Consumer may terminate the contract by registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt if the delivery date of the goods exceeds seven days. The Customer will then be reimbursed for the sums incurred by him or her during the order.

This clause is not intended to apply if the delay in delivery is due to a case of force majeure. In such a case, the Customer undertakes not to take legal action against AlbertMenes.fr and waives the right to terminate the sale provided for in this article.

7.4. Guarantees

7.4.1 Warranty against defects and visible deficiencies

It is the Customer's responsibility to check the good condition of the Products at the time of delivery. This check must include in particular the quality, quantities and references of the Products as well as their conformity with the order. No complaint will be taken into account after a period of 5 days from delivery. In any case, no complaint concerning the delivered packages will be taken into account unless the Customer acting as Trader has expressed reservations to the carrier in accordance with articles L. 133-3 et seq. of the French Commercial Code.

7.4.2 Warranty against defects and hidden deficiencies   Legal guarantees

Customers have a legal guarantee of delivery in conformity (article 1604 of the French Civil Code), a legal guarantee against hidden defects (articles 1641 et seq. of the French Civil Code) and a security guarantee (articles 1245 et seq. of the French Civil Code).

Customers who are consumers also have a legal guarantee of conformity (articles L. 217-4 et seq. French Consumer Code).   Return

In order to implement the guarantee, it is the Customer's responsibility to return the product to the address of AlbertMenes.fr's head office, accompanied by an explanatory letter requesting either an exchange or a refund.

The costs of returning the Product remain the responsibility of the Customer, except for Consumer Customers who implement the guarantee of conformity of articles L. 217-4 et seq. of the French Consumer Code.


8.1. Creation of the personal space

The creation of a personal space is an essential prerequisite for any order from an Internet user on the Site. To this end, the Internet user will be asked to supply a certain number of personal details. Some of these details are considered essential for the creation of the personal space. Refusal by an Internet user to supply said details will have the effect of preventing the creation of the personal space as well as, incidentally, confirmation of the order.

When creating the personal space, the Internet user is asked to choose a password. This password is the guarantee of the confidentiality of the information contained in the personal space. The Internet user is therefore prohibited from transmitting or communicating it to any third party. Otherwise, AlbertMenes.fr cannot be held responsible for unauthorised access to an Internet user's personal space.

The Customer undertakes to regularly check the data concerning him/her and to proceed online, from his/her personal space, to the necessary updates and amendments.

8.2. Content of the personal space

The personal space allows the Customer to consult and track all his or her orders placed on the Site.

The pages relating to personal spaces are freely printable by the account holder in question, but do not constitute admissible evidence in court. Their nature is solely informative and they are intended to ensure efficient management of the Customer's orders.

AlbertMenes.fr undertakes to securely store all contractual elements whose storage is required by law or regulations in force.

8.3. Deleting the personal space

AlbertMenes.fr reserves the right to delete the account of any Customer who contravenes these general conditions, in particular when the Customer provides inaccurate, incomplete, misleading or fraudulent information, as well as when the personal space of a Customer has remained inactive for at least one year. Such deletion shall not be likely to constitute a fault of AlbertMenes.fr or damage to the excluded Customer, who shall not be entitled to any compensation as a result.

This exclusion is without prejudice to the possibility for AlbertMenes.fr to take legal action against the Customer, when the facts justify it.


9.1. Shipping costs

The delivery or availability costs will, in any case, be indicated to the Customer before any payment is made and concern deliveries made in metropolitan France, Corsica, the French overseas departments and territories, and abroad.

The delivery costs indicated on the Site are understood in Euro, all taxes included.

9.2. Delivery time

Orders are delivered by Colissimo to your home or to a collection point of your choice within 7 working days of the full collection of the price by AlbertMenes.fr.

Some products or order volumes may nevertheless justify a delivery time of more than 7 working days. This will be expressly mentioned to the Customer when the order is confirmed.

9.3. Damaged package

In the event of delivery of a clearly and visibly damaged package, it is the Customer's responsibility to refuse it in order to benefit from the guarantee offered by the carrier. The Customer must also inform the seller without delay, so that a new package can be prepared and then shipped in return upon receipt of the damaged package. In such a case, the delivery times indicated above in these general terms and conditions shall no longer apply.
