2. Terms and conditions for placing orders and the purchasing process
The products are sold within the limits of available stocks. The availability of products is indicated on the site, in the description of each article.
In order to comply with the provisions of the law of confidence in the digital economy of June 21, 2004, will be described below the ordering process:
In order to place an order, the user will be able to select one or several products and add them to his basket. When the order is complete, the user will be able to access his basket by clicking on the button provided for this purpose. By consulting his basket, the user will be able to check the number and the nature of the products he has chosen and will be able to check their unit price as well as the global price of the order. He will have the possibility of removing one or more products from his basket. On this summary will be indicated to the user the faculty of which it has or not to exercise its right of retractation as well as the deadlines and methods which apply to it.
If the User is satisfied with the order and wishes to validate it, he/she can click on the validation button, and then access a form in which he/she can either enter his/her connection identifier if he/she already has one, or register on the site by completing the form presented to him/her, with his/her personal information.
Once he is connected or after he has completed the form, the user will be invited to check or modify his delivery and billing details, to read and validate the present conditions, to confirm his order and then will be invited to make his payment by being redirected to the secure payment interface.
Once the payment is effectively received by the site editor, the latter undertakes to acknowledge receipt of the payment to the user electronically, within a maximum of 24 hours.
Similarly and within the same timeframe, the publisher undertakes to send the user a summary e-mail of the order in order to confirm its processing and to communicate all information relating to the order.
3. Product prices, taxes and delivery costs
The prices indicated on the site are in Euros or US Dollars if you're located in the USA or Canada, all taxes included, and excluding delivery charges. The prices are firm, without discount or rebate. These prices can be modified at any time by the editor. The price applicable to the customer is the one in force at the time of the order.
The delivery costs will, in any case, be indicated to the customer before any payment.
IMPORTANT: In case of delivery outside the European Union and the French overseas territories, the user is informed that customs duties and other taxes may be due. The necessary formalities and the payment of the aforementioned rights and taxes are not the responsibility of the editor and will be in any case the responsibility of the user. It is thus incumbent upon the latter to verify all these data as well as the possibilities of importing the product with the competent authorities of the country of delivery, before any order on the site.
In the UK for instance, since the kingdom left the European Union without any agreement (Brexit) British customs are applying 20% VAT in addition to customs duties on every item entering the nation.
LES FINES LAMES strives to distribute its products in as many physical and online stores as possible so that end consumers can find the products in their respective countries.
THE PRODUCTS SOLD REMAIN THE PROPERTY OF THE EDITOR UNTIL FULL PAYMENT OF THEIR PRICE, IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS CLAUSE OF PROPERTY RESERVE. THE RISKS ARE TRANSFERRED TO THE CUSTOMER AS FROM THE DELIVERY OF THE PRODUCTS.
4. Information relating to the payment
The Internet user can place an order on the present site and can make his payment by credit card, bank transfer, Paypal, Stripe.
Payments by credit card are made through secure transactions provided by providers: Paypal, Stripe.
Within the framework of the payments by bank card, the editor of the present site does not have access to any data relating to the means of payment of the customer.
The delivery periods defined in the article below only start to run from the date of effective receipt of payment by the seller, the latter being able to provide proof by any means. In the absence of receiving the payment from the customer within eight days from the order, the order will be cancelled and the products will be put back on sale on the site.
The failure to pay at its term of any sum due to the editor will give place to the collection of penalties equal to (3) three times the legal interest rate to which will be added a fixed allowance of 40 euros for collection costs. These penalties will be due from the day after the due date of the unpaid sums, without prior notice.
5. Delivery or availability
a) Delivery time
Orders are delivered by DHL EXPRESS or any carrier designated by the publisher within 15 working days from the date of full payment of the price corresponding to the order, if the product has not been purchased during a pre-sale or has been pre-ordered following a product launch or an out-of-stock situation.
Certain products or certain volumes of orders may nevertheless justify a longer delivery time; this will be expressly mentioned to the user when the order is validated.
b) Damage and partial loss
In case of delivery of a package obviously and visibly deteriorated, incomplete or with damaged objects, it is up to the customer to refuse it in order to enjoy the guarantee offered by the carrier.

Likewise, the user must refuse any incomplete package or one with damaged items.
