Article 1 - Purpose

3.2 Product characteristics
3.2.1 General provisions
The Purchaser can select one or more products from among the different categories featured on the LABORATOIRE GARANCIA Website.
LABORATOIRE GARANCIA may alter the choice of products presented for sale on its Website at any time, especially if this relates to constraints connected to its suppliers, without prejudice to Orders placed by the Purchaser.
In accordance with Article L. 111-1 of the French Consumer Code, the Purchaser can read about the key characteristics of the product(s) he/she wishes to order, prior to placing his/her Order, by consulting the LABORATOIRE GARANCIA Website.
Products comply with current French legislation. LABORATOIRE GARANCIA cannot be held liable in the event of failure to respect the legislation in the country where the product is delivered (e.g. a product may be prohibited). It is the responsibility of the Purchaser to check with the local authorities in the country of delivery with regard to any restrictions that may apply to importing or using the products and services he/she intends to order.
LABORATOIRE GARANCIA cannot guarantee that the information given on product packaging is translated into all the languages of the European Union. However, this information will be made available in French and/or English as a minimum.
For any question relating to the products and their use, any additional question or request for advice, the Purchaser can contact LABORATOIRE GARANCIA’s Customer Services on 01 45 20 73 65 (price of a local call from France, or +33 1 45 20 84 85 from abroad), during opening hours of the service indicated in the "Contact us" section of the LABORATOIRE GARANCIA Website.
The Purchaser can also go to physical sales outlets (Pharmacies, Drug Stores and Sephora) to get personalised advice and test the products offered for sale on the LABORATOIRE GARANCIA website.
LABORATOIRE GARANCIA offers are valid as long as they appear on the Website and while stocks last.
In all cases, and where one or more products are unavailable after the Order has been placed, the Purchaser will be informed by email as soon as possible of the unavailability of the product and the total or partial cancellation of his/her Order.
In the event that the entire Order is cancelled:
- The Purchaser’s Order will be automatically cancelled and his/her bank account will not be debited.
- LABORATOIRE GARANCIA’s Customer Services will contact the Purchaser to inform him/her that his/her Order has been cancelled and ask whether he/she would like to make a new Order, excluding the unavailable product.
In the event that the Order is cancelled in part:
- The Purchaser’s Order will be confirmed and his/her bank account will be debited for the full Order amount,
- The available products will be delivered to the Purchaser;
- The Purchaser will be refunded the amount that the unavailable product costs as quickly as possible, and at the latest within 30 days of him/her having made the payment.
Any Order implies the acceptance of these Terms & Conditions of Sale, General Conditions of Use and the "Personal Data & Cookies" charter without prejudice to specific contractual terms agreed between the Parties.
Before confirming the Order, the Purchaser can check the details of his/her Order and correct any potential errors.
The remote sales contract is concluded from the moment the Purchaser confirms his/her Order by clicking on the "Confirm your payment" or "Confirm your basket" icon (hereinafter and heretofore "the Order"). He/she is considered to have knowingly accepted the content and conditions of the Order in question, and in particular these Terms & Conditions of Sale, the fact that his/her Order implies an obligation to pay on his/her part, the prices, volumes, characteristics, quantities and delivery times of products offered for sale and ordered by the Purchaser.
Once this step has been validated, the Purchaser can no longer cancel his/her Order. The sale will be final (subject to the exercise by the Purchaser of his/her right of withdrawal under the conditions provided for in Article 6 of these Terms & Conditions of Sale). The Order will be confirmed to the Purchaser by any appropriate means (the "Order Confirmation") and an email will be sent to him/her upon despatch of his/her Order.
LABORATOIRE GARANCIA recommends that the Purchaser keeps these emails either electronically or as printed copies. The Purchaser is informed that the emails are sent to the email address provided by the Purchaser. Also, in the event of an error when entering the relevant email address, or of non-receipt of the Order confirmation message, Laboratoire Garancia cannot be held responsible. In this case, the sale will be considered final, except for cases of cancellation of the Order by Laboratoire Garancia, in particular due to unavailability of products. However, the Purchaser can exercise his/her right of withdrawal in accordance with the conditions set out in Article 6 of these Terms & Conditions of Sale.
LABORATOIRE GARANCIA will then have the right to bank the total amount of the Order:
- For payments made by Laboratoire Garancia Gift Cards and/or purchase vouchers: upon confirmation of the Order;
- For payments made by other payment methods accepted on the Website in accordance with article 4.1 below: upon sending of the email informing the Purchaser of the dispatch of his/her Order.
Remember that purchases made on the Website are reserved for non-professional private customers for their own use (or for gifts within their family circle), which is why LABORATOIRE GARANCIA only sells its products in quantities corresponding to the normal average needs of a household. In accordance with Article L121-11 of the Consumer Code, LABORATOIRE GARANCIA reserves the right to refuse or cancel for a legitimate reason any Order where the number of products or the amount to be paid (for one or more orders cumulated) would not correspond to the usual average use of a household, any Order that would suggest that an economic activity is being carried out by the Purchaser in relation to the products ordered, or more generally, any abnormal Order within the meaning of the applicable jurisprudence in the matter.
Finally, LABORATOIRE GARANCIA reserves the right to suspend or cancel the processing of any Order and/or delivery, whatever its nature and state of progress, in the event of non-payment or partial payment of any sum owed by the Purchaser, a payment incident, fraud or attempted fraud relating to the use of the LABORATOIRE GARANCIA Website, including when the Purchaser has made previous Orders.
Article 4 – Payment

LABORATOIRE GARANCIA reserves the right to suspend or cancel the processing of any Order and/or delivery, whatever its nature and state of progress, in the event of non-payment or partial payment of any sum owed by the Purchaser, a payment incident, fraud or attempted fraud relating to the use of the LABORATOIRE GARANCIA Website, including when the Purchaser has made previous Orders.
4.5 Security of payment transactions
In order to ensure the security of bank card payments on the Website, the Purchaser must send LABORATOIRE GARANCIA the visual cryptogram (CVV) on the back of the bank card used by the Purchaser.
As part of the fight against Internet fraud, information relating to the Purchaser’s Order may be transmitted to any third party authorised by law or designated by LABORATOIRE GARANCIA for the sole purpose of verifying the Purchaser’s identity, the validity of the Order, the method of payment used and the planned delivery.
Following this control, LABORATOIRE GARANCIA reserves the right to request a photocopy of the Purchaser’s identity card and/or any information relating to the Purchaser’s identity. All Purchasers have the right to access, rectify and delete personal data about them processed by Laboratoire Garancia under the conditions set out in Article 2 of the "Personal Data & Cookies" charter.
LABORATOIRE GARANCIA uses a secure payment tool called "System Pay". Payment security relies on the authentication of the Purchaser, and the confidentiality of all data. To ensure this security, System Pay uses proven cryptography techniques and respects the different banking regulations applicable in France.

Article 6 - Right of withdrawal and withdrawal period
6.1. Legal right of withdrawal and withdrawal period
6.1.1. Period during which the legal right of withdrawal can be exercised
In accordance with Article L.221-18 of the French Consumer Code ("Code de la Consommation"), the Purchaser has a period of 14 (fourteen) clear days from the day the parcel containing the ordered products is received by him/her to exercise his/her legal right of withdrawal without having to justify this decision. In the case of a Gift Card purchased on the Website, the Purchaser has a period of 14 (fourteen) days from the confirmation of his/her Order to exercise his/her right of withdrawal, provided however that the gift card has not been used in whole or in part before the expiry of that period. Indeed, in this case, no right of withdrawal or refund in any form whatsoever is provided.
6.1.2. Ways of exercising your legal right of withdrawal
The ways in which you can exercise your legal right of withdrawal are described in Article 6.3 of these Terms & Conditions of Sale.
6.1.3. Products excluded from the legal right of withdrawal
In accordance with Article L.221-28 of the French Consumer Code, the right of withdrawal cannot be exercised for Orders relating to the supply of goods which have been unsealed after delivery and which cannot be returned for hygiene or health protection reasons.
As a result, the Purchaser is alerted to the fact that he/she will not be able to assert his/her contractual right of withdrawal on products he/she has unsealed and where resale by Laboratoire Garancia would present risks for reasons of hygiene or health protection for consumers (eg care products, make-up products etc).
6.1.4. Consequences of exercising your legal right of withdrawal
If the products can be subject to a legal right of withdrawal, the Purchaser exercising his/her right of withdrawal under the conditions envisaged in the present article in terms of timing and methods for returning the products, will be able to obtain a refund for the products returned as well as delivery costs of the Order.
In accordance with Article L.221-21-3 of the French Consumer Code ("Code de la Consommation"), the Purchaser is responsible for the cost of returns, except when the products delivered do not correspond to the Order placed (in this case, these return costs will be met by Laboratoire Garancia).

The Purchaser or, as the case may be, the recipient of the Order, must inform Laboratoire Garancia of his/her desire to withdraw in one of the following ways:

In this situation, the Customer is informed that it is not technically possible for Laboratoire Garancia to block shipment of products once the Order has been validated. The Order will then be sent to the Purchaser and the Purchaser agrees, in accordance with Article L.221-23 of the Consumer Code, to return the products concerned within a maximum period of 14 (fourteen) days from this information being provided to Laboratoire Garancia. In case of receipt of the products beyond this period of 14 days, informing Laboratoire Garancia of the Purchaser’s desire to withdraw is deemed to come into effect at the time of the actual despatch of the products.
Returns via Point Relais will not be accepted.
6.1.7. General provisions applicable to all modes of return
It is imperative that products returned to LABORATOIRE GARANCIA are in a condition that means they can be re-sold (in a perfect state, with their original packaging, accessories, instructions, etc) at the latest within 2 (two) months of their date of receipt. Products returned after this period will not be accepted. Products must also be sent back with their Order number, either on the Returns Slip that should be signed by the Purchaser or the Order recipient and included with the products, or on another document. The Purchaser and the Order recipient, if he/she is not the Purchaser, is hereby informed that using the Returns Slip facilitates the processing of returned products by LABORATOIRE GARANCIA. The Purchaser or the Order recipient, if he/she is not the Purchaser, is therefore requested to use the Returns Slip. With regard to gift cards purchased on the LABORATOIRE GARANCIA Website, the return conditions detailed in this article may only apply if the gift card has not been used in whole or in part before the end of this period. Indeed, in this case, no right of withdrawal or refund in any form whatsoever is provided. If the Purchaser has taken advantage of an offer against purchase on the Website, entitling him/her, subject to conditions, to one or more free product(s) in exchange for his/her Order and, that because of the exercise of his/her right of withdrawal, the latter is no longer eligible for the offer in question; the Purchaser will then have to send the product(s) he/she wishes to return accompanied by the free product(s) received in exchange for the Order of the product(s) returned so that Laboratoire Garancia can consider his/her request for withdrawal.
The responsibility of the Purchaser(s) may be invoked in case of depreciation of the product resulting from handling other than that necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and, where appropriate, the proper functioning of the products.
6.1.8. Returns by post
The Purchaser or the recipient of the Order who wishes to exercise his/her right of withdrawal, legal or contractual, by returning a product by mail/package must follow these instructions:
- The original packaging should be used to return the product(s) in question.
- Send the parcel or postal item by registered mail with acknowledgement of receipt to the following address:
10, Avenue du Recteur Poincaré
LABORATOIRE GARANCIA will not accept parcels or letters with postage due.
If the Purchaser/Order recipient cannot prove that he/she has actually left the product(s) with the carrier or at a store, any risk connected with the return of the product is the responsibility of the Purchaser or the Order recipient.
Article 7 - Guarantees
7.1. Legal guarantees
All products on sale on the Website benefit from the legal guarantee of conformity (as defined in articles L217-4 and following of the Consumer Code) and the guarantee against hidden defects (as defined in articles 1641 and following of the Civil Code), allowing the Purchaser to return defective or non-compliant products delivered without charge.
7.1.1 Legal guarantee of conformity
The French Consumer Code provides for the following in terms of a legal guarantee of conformity: Article L217-4: "The seller is obliged to deliver a good in accordance with the contract and responds to defects of conformity existing at the time of delivery. It also responds to any lack of conformity resulting from the packaging, assembly or installation instructions when it was its responsibility under the contract or was carried out under its responsibility."
Article L211-5: "To be in conformity with the contract, the good must:
1) Be fit for the customary use expected of a similar good and, where appropriate:
- correspond to the description given by the seller and possess the qualities it has presented to the purchaser in the form of a sample or model;
- present the qualities that a purchaser may legitimately expect given the public statements made by the seller, the producer or his/her representative, in particular in advertising or labelling;
2) Or have the characteristics defined by mutual agreement by the parties or be fit for any special purpose sought by the purchaser, made known to the seller and that the latter has accepted.
Article L211-12: The action resulting from the lack of conformity is prescribed by two years from delivery of the goods.
7.1.2 Guarantee against latent defects
The French Civil Code provides the following in terms of guarantee against latent defects:
Article 1641 of the Civil Code: The seller is bound by the guarantee by reason of latent defects of the item sold which render it unsuitable for the use for which it is intended, or which diminish the use so much that the Purchaser would not have acquired it, or would have paid a lower price, if he/she had known about them.
Article 1648 of the Civil Code: The action resulting from latent defects must be brought up by the purchaser within two years of discovering the defect. In the case provided for by article 1642-1, the action must be brought, on pain of foreclosure, within one year from the date on which the seller may be discharged from apparent faults or defects in conformity."
As part of the legal guarantee of latent defects, LABORATOIRE GARANCIA, according to your choice, agrees, after evaluation of the defect:
- Either to refund the full price of the returned product,
- Or to refund part of the price of the product if the Purchaser decides to keep the product.
7.1.3 Exclusion of guarantees
Excluded from the guarantee are products modified, repaired, integrated or added by the Purchaser. The guarantee does not cover apparent defects. The guarantee will not cover products damaged during transport or due to misuse.
7.2 Procedures for implementing legal guarantees
When acting on a legal guarantee of conformity, the Purchaser:
- has a period of two years from delivery of the good to act;
- can choose between the repair or replacement of the good, subject to the cost conditions provided for in Article L217-9 of the Consumer Code;
- is exempted from providing proof of the lack of conformity of the good during the six months following the delivery of the good. This period is extended to twenty-four months from 18 March 2016, except for second-hand goods.
The legal guarantee of conformity applies regardless of any commercial guarantee that may be granted.
The Purchaser may decide to implement the guarantee against latent defects in the item sold within the meaning of Article 1641 of the Civil Code. In this case, he/she can choose between the resolution of the sale or a reduction in the selling price in accordance with article 1644 of the Civil Code.
These provisions are not exclusive of the right of withdrawal defined in Article 6 above.
7.3 Consequence of the implementation of guarantees
Under the legal guarantee of conformity, LABORATOIRE GARANCIA agrees according to the choice of the Purchaser:
- either to replace the product with an identical product subject to available stocks,
- or to refund the price of the product if replacing a product proves impossible.
Under the legal guarantee against latent defects, LABORATOIRE GARANCIA, according to your choice, agrees, after evaluating the defect:
- Either to refund the full price of the returned product,
- Or to refund part of the price of the product if the Purchaser decides to keep the product.
Article 8 - Retention of ownership
LABORATOIRE GARANCIA retains full ownership of products sold until such time as full payment, in principal, has been received, including charges, taxes and mandatory contributions.
Article 9 - Intellectual property
The GARANCIA trademark, all other trademarks, figurative or otherwise, all illustrations, images, logos and all content featured on the Site (including but not limited to the Terms & Conditions of Use and these Terms & Conditions of Sale) are and shall remain the sole property of LABORATOIRE GARANCIA.

The same applies to all copyrights, designs, models and patents featured and/or used on the Website.
Article 10 - Signature and proof
LABORATOIRE GARANCIA endeavours to protect its customers’ personal details by guaranteeing a high level of security, however the Purchaser also has a role to play in safeguarding his/her personal data. In particular, the Purchaser must maintain the security of his/her online transactions for example by not communicating his/her user name (the Purchaser’s email address) and/or his/her password to anyone, and by regularly changing his/her password. In this respect, LABORATOIRE GARANCIA cannot be held responsible for the disclosure of information concerning the Purchaser to any individual who has used the Purchaser’s user name (his/her email address) and/or password. As such, the use of the Purchaser’s user name (his/her email address) and/or his/her password constitutes proof of his/her identity and his/her liability for the relevant sums when the Order is validated. LABORATOIRE GARANCIA can in no way be held responsible for the fraudulent use of such information. Providing a bank card number and final confirmation of the Order constitute proof of acceptance of said Order and liability for the sums agreed to by selecting the products listed on the Order. The computerised records kept by the IT systems belonging to LABORATOIRE GARANCIA and its partners are considered as proof of communications, Orders and payments concluded between the Parties.
The Parties agree that all data, information, files and any other digital element exchanged between the Parties will constitute admissible, valid, enforceable and probative evidence of a private agreement.
The Parties undertake not to contest the admissibility, validity, enforceability or probative value of the aforementioned electronic elements, on the basis of their electronic nature. Unless proved otherwise, these elements shall be valid and enforceable between the Parties in the same manner, under the same conditions and with the same probative force as any document drawn up, received or kept in writing.
Article 11 - Responsibility
Prior to placing his/her Order, the Purchaser declares that he/she has full legal capacity to adhere to these Terms & Conditions of Sale. LABORATOIRE GARANCIA can in no way be held responsible for checking the legal capacity of visitors to its Website or Purchasers. Consequently, if an individual who does not have legal capacity orders items on the LABORATOIRE GARANCIA Website, the persons legally responsible for him/her (especially a parent or guardian) will take entire responsibility for the Order and must, in particular, honour payment of the purchase price.
11.2 Limitation of responsibility
In respect of the obligations set out in these Terms & Conditions of Sale, LABORATOIRE GARANCIA shall not be held liable if the non-performance of these obligations is attributable to the act of a third party, even if this is foreseeable, an error on the part of the Purchaser, or the occurrence of circumstances of force majeure as defined by the French courts, or to any other circumstances that cannot reasonably be said to be under the sole control of LABORATOIRE GARANCIA.
LABORATOIRE GARANCIA ACCEPTS NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR DIRECT OR INDIRECT LOSS OR INJURY, WHETHER FORESEEABLE OR NOT, CAUSED BY USING THE WEBSITE. IN THE EVENT THAT LABORATOIRE GARANCIA IS CONFIRMED AS BEING LIABLE FOR LOSS OR INJURY SUFFERED BY THE PURCHASER ATTRIBUTABLE SOLELY TO MAKING AN ORDER, THIS WILL BE LIMITED TO THE AMOUNT OF THE ORDER PAID BY THE PURCHASER TO LABORATOIRE GARANCIA. Any claim filed by a user, including any Purchaser, against Laboratoire Garancia, must be made within 6 months of the occurrence of the event that is the subject of the claim.

Any Order placed is subject to the Terms & Conditions of Sale in force at the time of the Order.
Article 14 - General
14.1 Partial non-validity
If one or more of the provisions of these Terms & Conditions of Sale are held to be invalid, or found to be so under the application of a law, regulation or following a final decision by a competent court of law, the other provisions shall retain their validity and their scope.
The failure of one of the Parties to pursue any breach of any of the provisions set out in these TCS on the part of the other Party shall not be construed as a waiver of the provision in question.
14.3 Governing law and competent jurisdiction
The selling of LABORATOIRE GARANCIA products is subject to French law regardless of the Purchaser’s country of residence or the location where the Order is placed. ANY DISPUTE RELATING TO THE EXISTENCE, INTERPRETATION, IMPLEMENTATION OR BREACH OF THE CONTRACT BETWEEN LABORATOIRE GARANCIA AND THE PURCHASER, EVEN WHERE MULTIPLE DEFENDANTS ARE CONCERNED, AND IN THE CASE OF FAILURE TO REACH AMICABLE SETTLEMENT, SHALL COME SOLELY UNDER THE JURISDICTION OF THE FRENCH COURTS COMPETENT TO ENFORCE THE RULES ENACTED IN THE FRENCH CODE OF CIVIL PROCEDURE ("CODE DE PROCEDURE CIVILE").

LABORATOIRE GARANCIA COOKIES POLICY
When you log in to our Website, we (or our partners) may be led, subject to your choices, to install various cookies on your Workstation allowing us to recognise which web browser you use during the term of validity of the Cookie concerned (your “Workstation”).
This page allows you to understand what a Cookie is, how we use it and the way you can make choices concerning Cookies.
WHAT IS A “COOKIE” ?
A “Cookie” is a generic term which refers to a text file stored on a dedicated area of the workstation’s hard disc (e.g.: Computer, tablet, smartphone, etc.) of a media user (internet, applications, etc.), at the time of consultation of content or online publicity. This Cookie file allows the issuer to identify the terminal on which it is stored and to monitor activities of the media user, and to remember information, such as user preferences or information previously entered by the user in forms on the media, during the term of validity or storage of the Cookie. Some Cookies are essential for use of the media, others allow for optimisation and personalisation of content displayed, and others to display publicities.
Cookies do not allow for direct identification of a user, but identify a browser or terminal. Information pertaining to content consulted on a media are directly associated to a log in within the Cookie. When a user browses on a media, the log in is associated to pages visited, as well as more widely to the background on the media and interactions (number of clicks for instance): It is therefore possible to monitor browsing of a single user on the media.
