An order settled using a payment card (Visa, Carte Bleue, MasterCard or American Express) will be charged when the parcel is sent.

4-3 – Payment in full: The principle
The order is to be paid in full at the time it is placed.
The amount paid cannot be considered a deposit.
An order will be considered paid in full when all the products are sent and you have settled all the products and their shipment in full.

We reserve the right to refuse to make a delivery or to honour an order if a previous order on your account remains to be totally or partially settled, or if a payment dispute remains to be settled.
We retain full ownership of the products for sale until the full settlement of all the amounts due when you order is placed (fees and taxes included).
However, when you receive the goods, the risk liability is transferred to you. You must therefore verify that the products are in good condition upon receipt.
In the case of retail sale, the client must immediately inform the retailer by mail in order for the latter to be able to exercise, if necessary, their claim right regarding the price against the third-party purchaser, and to inform the third-party purchaser of the existence of a retention of title clause.

The products are delivered to the address that you enter into the order form.

5-2 – Delivery times: When will the products arrive?
The applicable delivery times are those indicated when you validate your order.
However, please note that any order settled by cheque will only be handled when the payment is received. The delivery times must be recalculated from the date that this type of payment is effectively cashed.
The ANNE BENOIT CREATION company cannot be held responsible for any delivery delays. For information, please find here the habitual delivery times provided by the La Poste company: France: D+2. Elsewhere in Europe and the Maghreb: D+3 to D+ 7. Elsewhere in the world: D+5 to D+9.

5-3 – Delivery delay: What to do?
In case of a delivery delay on the part of the La Poste company following the shipping date indicated in the "follow-up - notification of shipping" message, we suggest that you verify with your post office to see whether the parcel is being held there. If so, we invite you to contact our Customer Service by phone or email to inform us of the delay (see Art.1.1).
We will then contact La Poste in order to open an investigation.
This La Poste investigation may last up to 21 business days beginning on the date it is opened. If the parcel is found during this period, it will be forwarded to your home address as quickly as possible. If, however, the parcel is still not found following these 21 business days, La Poste will have to consider the parcel as lost.
Once the investigation is finished, and after confirmation of the loss of the parcel by the La Poste company, we will send you a replacement order (complimentary postage). If the product(s) ordered are no longer available, you may obtain the reimbursement of the products specified in the carrier-confirmed declaration of the loss.


6-1 – The person receiving the parcel: What care should be taken?
Attention: if you entrust the reception of your parcel to a third party (the caretaker of your building, the receptionist of your office, etc.), that party takes delivery in your name and on your behalf.
Since you are charging that person with this responsibility, you should ask that he or she observe the usual precautions, taking the same care as if he or she were personally the recipient.
We ask you to be particularly watchful when taking receipt of your order, concerning its verification (§9.2) and the assessment of any irregularities. (6.3)

6-2 – Initial verification: What usage precautions should be taken?
We invite you (or the person taking delivery on your behalf) to verify the apparent state of the products with the carrier upon delivery. Regardless of the carrier, when an apparent irregularity has been noticed (such as damage, a product listed on the delivery note but missing from the parcel, a deteriorated parcel, broken products, etc.), you are required to:
- Open the parcel in the presence of the carrier, and
- Take detailed note of your apparent irregularity in manuscript form and have the carrier sign in the margin. The irregularities noted by the recipient upon delivery constitute a means for the proof of the existence of, and the extent of, the damage. Make sure that your notes are precise and thorough (a note as simple as "subject to unpacking" is considered too general and imprecise), and
- Inform the ANNE BENOIT CREATION company by registered mail within three business days following the delivery of your parcel.
If you encounter any problems upon receipt, it is essential that you keep the elements in the same condition in which they were delivered (inner and outer wrappings included).
If the products must be sent back, please make a request for return by sending a regular letter to "SAS ANNE BENOIT CREATION 15 boulevard du Général de Gaulle 20200 BASTIA, FRANCE".
If you make this request, you must include the copy of the letter addressed to the carrier or the "report of spoliation" or "statement of irregularity" provided by the carrier. In case of absence of irregularity relating to transport. The return will be made according to the provisions stated in Article 7 hereafter.
In any event, these precautions do not preclude the possibility of benefiting from legal guarantees and exercising the right of withdrawal.

6-3 – You notice an irregularity or a spoliation: How to react?
In the case of a delivery made by the La Poste company, if the parcel arrives opened and/or damaged (in particular if it has been fastened with the yellow "La Poste" adhesive band), you may accept or refuse its delivery.
If you or your representative decide(s) to accept the goods, you must be careful to:
- Take detailed notes of the apparent irregularity, in manuscript form (see §6.2), and
- Fill in a "statement of irregularity" concomitantly, as required by La Poste. This form must be sent to us in order for us to be able to open an investigation and begin the reimbursement process if applicable.
If you or your representative prefer(s) to refuse the delivery, in addition to establishing "detailed notes of the apparent irregularity, in manuscript form", you must ask the carrier to send the parcel back to us, along with a "report of spoliation" (report 170). As a preventative measure, we recommend that you keep a copy of this form.

6-4 – You notice a delivery error: What to do?
• Error of recipient. In the case where you receive a delivery that was not intended for you, we ask that you kindly keep the parcel in the same condition and to inform our customer service as soon as possible:
- Either by phone: +33 4 95 38 78 19 (cost of a toll-free local call), Monday to Friday, 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.

- By declaring the value of the product as shown on the purchase invoice,

In case of a delivery error or proven non-compliance: a prepaid label will be sent to you by mail so that you may send back the product(s) at our expense (unless we directly call upon a carrier to collect the goods at your home address, depending on the mode of transport used for the delivery). If a prepaid label is provided, the goods to be returned should rapidly be sent to our customer service with their complete, original wrapping in good condition. In any case, you should choose wrapping that is well suited for the return.

If you are exercising your right of withdrawal, you may request either the reimbursement of the amount settled, or an exchange in an amount equal to the amount settled, in accordance with the applicable legal provisions.
