1 • General rules

A - Via online sales at cilé.com
The online sales of Cilé are subjected to the present general conditions of sale to which the purchaser declares to adhere without restriction nor reserve, as soon as it addresses its complete purchase order accompanied by the payment to the company Cilé. 

The validation click constitutes an electronic signature which has, between the parts, the same value as a handwritten signature.

Orders can be processed via the Cilé e-mail address:
Each order sent by the customer to this address will be summarized in the form of a form including the name of the customer, his e-mail address and/or telephone number, the delivery address, the product(s) desired, the quantity, the unit price, as well as the total amount of the basket excluding VAT and including VAT.
The return of this form to will be the object of an order validation.
After validation will be sent to the customer the RIB of the company for a payment by transfer, and the postal address for a payment by check.
The order will be taken into account and the products sent in manufacture after payment of the order.

The files of the orders and invoices preserved by Cilé on a reliable and durable support, will be regarded as the evidence of the commercial transactions recorded between Cilé and its customers.

B - Delivery problems

You must notify the carrier and Cilé of any reservations about the delivered product (e.g., damaged package, already opened ...) within 5 working days after receipt of the product. Then, according to the cases defined in article 3 below, you can profit from the conditions of exchange and refunding envisaged with this article.

Cases of force majeure: In addition to those usually considered as cases of force majeure by the jurisprudence of the French courts, the cases of force majeure that can alter the delivery service are:

• Strikes internal or external to the company, causing the blocking of the means of transport
• Governmental or legal restrictions
• Computer breakdowns
• Blockage of telecommunications and/or the Internet network

The case of force majeure automatically suspends the execution of the order. If the case of force majeure persists for a period exceeding 3 months, the order will be automatically cancelled, unless otherwise agreed by both parties.

C - Product compliance

We commit ourselves to reimburse you or to exchange you the apparently defective products or not corresponding to your order.

 However the unique character of the manufacture engages the purchaser on a tolerance of 5 to 8% concerning:

• Lineage effects
• Bending
• Colorimetric difference between the product and its image (modulation relative to the screen calibration)

In the event of nonconformity of the products, we thank you for agreeing to make a detailed statement in writing and to return the products to us. Cilé will proceed, with your choice, with the exchange or the refunding of the products. The request must be carried out within 15 working days following the delivery. Any complaint formulated outside this time could not be accepted. The products must be returned to us in the state in which you received them with all the elements delivered (accessories, packaging, instructions...).

The shipping costs will be reimbursed to you on the basis of the invoiced rate and the return costs will be reimbursed to you.

Attention: The photographs and labels of the catalog are the most faithful possible but cannot always ensure a perfect similarity with the exact shade of the color of the product. Similarly, there may be a slight difference in color between a sample received and the finished product. Indeed, the printing conditions (brand and date of creation of the non-woven paper used as a support, difference in bath etc.) may slightly modify certain shades.

D - Delivery of the package in case of absence of the customer
In case of absence of the recipient of the package at the time of delivery, a notice of passage will be left at the delivery address indicated on the order form by the customer. The parcel will have to be withdrawn with the address and according to the methods notified on the transit advice note.

 In case of non withdrawal of the parcel within a period defined by the carrier, the parcel will be returned to Cilé. Cilé reserves the right not to refund the amount of the products of the order; in any case, the shipping costs will not be refunded.

E - Delivery outside the European Union

If the customer is from a country outside the European Union, VAT is not charged. However, the customer must pay any customs duties, VAT or other taxes due on the occasion of the import of the products into the country of the place of delivery.

The customer is solely responsible for verifying the possibility of importing the ordered products with regard to the laws of the country of delivery.

8 • Withdrawal

The consumer code concerning mail order sales, gives every consumer a right of withdrawal of 14 days from the day after receiving the goods. However, this law does not apply to custom-made products.
Cilé has no stock, each product is manufactured exclusively to order, excluding the possibility of a return other than for reasons of non-conformity (see art C of paragraph 7).
Indeed, when you validate and pay your order, it is transmitted directly to the manufacturer who produces and invoices it. The absence of right of withdrawal is specified at the time of validation of order. In addition, in agreement with the manufacturer, and in exceptional cases, a specific agreement can be agreed between the three parties: Cilé, the customer, and the manufacturer. We invite you to contact us at +33 9 53 70 54 45 or +33 6 88 31 32 21.

9 • Guarantees

The customer benefits from the provisions of the legal guarantee of conformity, and the guarantee of hidden defects.

To benefit from the guarantee of the products, it is imperative to keep their purchase invoice.
The contractual guarantees do not cover :

• abnormal or non-conforming use of the products
• defects and their consequences due to the intervention of a fitter
• Defects and their consequences due to use not in conformity with the use for which the product is intended
• defects and their consequences due to any external cause
