In case of absence at the time of delivery, a notice is left in the Customer's mailbox, prompting the Customer to collect his/her parcel from the Post office within 15 (fifteen) days.
In case where the package is returned to WEBEDIA, a second delivery will be made. If the parcel is returned to the sender a third time, there will be no more delivery.
11.B.3 In accordance with the provisions of article L. 121-21 of the Consumer Code, the Customer has 14 (fourteen) days from the delivery of his/her order to exercise his/her withdrawal right, by returning, at his/her own expense, the Gift Box, without having to justify his/her choice.
The Gift boxes must be returned to WEBEDIA at the address specified in article 15 below, in their original packaging. The reimbursement is made according to the procedures laid down in article 9.2. Any incomplete, damaged gift box and/or any gift box which packaging has been damaged will neither be exchanged nor reimbursed.
Given the digital nature of the "gift voucher" included in the Gift Box, the Customer expressly agrees and acknowledges that the execution of the fee-based Service may start as of the activation of the gift voucher by the Recipient, that is before the end of the withdrawal period of 14 (fourteen) days provided for in article L. 121-21 of the Consumer Code.
However, it is stated that the Customer who has exercised his/her withdrawal right, even though the Recipient was able to access the fee-based Service before the end of the withdrawal period, shall pay to the Site an amount corresponding to the service provided up to the notification of his/her decision to withdraw. This amount is proportionate to the total price of the agreed service.

12.1 Without prejudice to the payment of any damages in compensation for loss suffered, WEBEDIA expressly reserves the right to terminate or suspend immediately (without being obliged to), without notice or compensation, the fee-based Service which was subscribed by the Customer, in the following circumstances:
In the event of a breach by the Customer of any of the obligations placed upon him by these GTCS and/or by the STCU and, more particularly,
In case of violation of intellectual property rights of WEBEDIA and/or its licensors (see Article 16 of these GTCS and Article 5 of GTCU, available here);
In case of multiple simultaneous connections and/or professional use of the "SUBSCRIBER" package (see. Article 5.4 of these GTCS);

The Customer will not seek WEBEDIA’s responsibility if his/her Account has been suspended and/or terminated.
12.2 It is stated that WEBEDIA may also, but has no obligation, to exclude temporarily or permanently any Member of the community Space in case of repeated breach of the provisions stipulated in Articles 6.1, 6.2 and 6.3 of this document and/or repeated violation of third parties' rights (intellectual property rights, personality rights etc.) mentioned in Article 7 of the STCU (available here). WEBEDIA reserves the right to cancel the Member's Account.
The Client is invited to read the article 6.4 of the STCU (available here).
12.3 It is reminded that WEBEDIA reserves the right, without compensation, to suspend or discontinue the Site. If this should happen, the Customer will be informed within a reasonable time by a notification sent by email to the address registered/updated on his/her Profile.

ARTICLE 13 - DEFINITIONS
13.1 The customer benefits from the legal and contractual guarantees of conformity of the fee-based product or service and hidden defects. For information, these legal provisions are reproduced in Annex A of these GTCS. It is the responsibility of the Customer to provide WEBEDIA any justification as to the reality of the alleged anomalies or defects. In this regard, the Customer will not intervene himself or herself or involve a third party.
In case of hidden defect of a fee-based product or Service, WEBEDIA undertakes to reimburse, to the Customer the apparently defective product or service and/or any product or service which do not correspond to his/her order, at the earliest opportunity and no later than 14 (fourteen) days after the mail formalising the reimbursement offer was sent.
The provisions of this Article shall not prevent the Customer from using his/her withdrawal right provided for in Article 9 of these GTCS, or to benefit from any contractual guarantees.

ARTICLE 14 - FORCE MAJEURE

Any unavoidable, unpredictable, inevitable fact or circumstance, or fact or circumstances beyond the parties' control and which cannot be prevented by them, despite all reasonable efforts possible (strike, fire, disaster, failure of internal or external servers, cyber attack, etc.) is therefore likely to exonerate the responsibility of the party in default, provided that it has been duly demonstrated.
The party in default due to an unforeseeable or force majeure event shall inform the other party within 7 (seven) working days from the date it has knowledge of it. Within 14 (fourteen) days after this announcement, the Parties will meet to examine together the impact of the event and the conditions in which the execution of the order may be continued.
Any unforeseeable or force majeure event which duration exceeds 30 (thirty) days gives the right to the other party to cancel the order.

The service provider shall inform the consumer in writing, three months at the earliest, and one month at the latest, before expiry of the period during which renewal can be declined, of the option to refrain from renewing a contract with a tacit renewal clause that he has entered into. This information, delivered in clear and understandable terms, mentions clearly the deadline for termination.
When such information has not been sent to him/her pursuant to the provisions of the first paragraph, the consumer is free to terminate the contract at any time on or after the renewal date In such circumstances, any advances made after the last renewal date or, in the case of open-ended contracts, after the date on which the initial fixed-term contract was converted, shall be reimbursed within thirty days of the cancellation date, after deduction of the sums corresponding to performance of the contract up to that date.

Article L.211-4 of the Consumer Code
The seller is required to deliver a product which conforms to the contract and is held liable for any lack of conformity which exists upon delivery.
He/she is also held liable for any lack of conformity caused by the packaging or the assembly instructions, or the installation if he/she assumed responsibility therefore or had it carried out under his responsibility.
Article L.211-5 of the Consumer Code
To conform to the contract, the product must:
1. Be suitable for the purpose usually associated with such a product and, if applicable:
- correspond to the description given by the seller and have the features that the seller presented to the buyer in the form of a sample or model;
- have the features that a buyer might reasonably expect it to have considering the public statements made by the seller, the producer or his representative, including advertising and labelling;
2. Or have the features defined by mutual agreement between the parties or be suitable for any special requirement of the buyer which was made known to the seller and which the latter agreed to.
Article L.211-7 of the Consumer Code

The seller may refute that presumption if it is incompatible with the nature of the product or the non-conformity invoked.
Article L.211-9 of the Consumer Code
In the event of lack of conformity, the buyer shall choose between repair and replacement of the product.
The seller may nevertheless elect not to proceed in accordance with the buyer's choice if that choice gives rise to a manifestly disproportionate cost compared with the other option given the value of the product or the seriousness of the defect. He/she is then required to proceed with the option not chosen by the buyer, unless this proves impossible.
Article L.211-10 of the Consumer Code
If neither repair nor replacement of the product is possible, the buyer may return the product and obtain reimbursement of the price or keep the product and obtain reimbursement of a portion of the price.

The sale shall not be cancelled, however, if the lack of conformity is minor.
