- If the Products ordered have not been delivered within a period of 7 days after the anticipated delivery date, for any reason other than a force majeure event or due to your own acts or omissions, the sale may be cancelled at your written request in accordance with applicable consumer laws (as further set out at Section 10 below), without compensation to you, when (a) we or the Brand have refused to deliver the Products; (b) delivery within the delivery timeframe was essential (taking into account all the relevant circumstances); or (c) you told us before your Order was accepted that delivery within a specific delivery time frame was essential.
- If the delivered Product is not of satisfactory quality or does not comply with Product Listing, the Brand will be solely responsible for remedying or reimbursing You for the Product, as indicated by the Brand in the Product Listing or as required by your statutory rights (see Section 10 below).

- When you have chosen a carrier, delivery shall be deemed to have been made as soon as the Products ordered have been handed over by the Brand to the carrier, who has accepted them without reservation. You therefore acknowledge that it is the carrier’s responsibility to make the delivery and shall have no recourse against the Brand in the event of failure to deliver the Products transported.
- If you have a special request for the conditions of packaging or transport of the Products you ordered, duly accepted in writing by the Brand, the costs related thereto shall be the subject of a specific additional invoice, on the basis of an estimate previously accepted in writing by you.

- As soon as possible, at its own expense and where required to do so, the Brand shall refund and/or replace any Products when any non-conform or apparent or hidden defects have been duly shown by you in accordance with this Section 8, and in accordance with and subject to applicable consumer laws.
Transfer of ownership and risk
- Transfer of ownership of the Brand’s Products to you will only occur after full payment of the price by You has been made in accordance with these Terms and Conditions, regardless of the delivery date of such Products.
- Unless Section 8.9 applies and regardless of the date on which transfer of ownership of the Products occurs, the transfer of risk for loss and deterioration of the Products shall only occur when you take physical possession of the Products.
