4.2. Acceptance of the Conditions by the Client
These conditions can be read directly on the website www.mainsauvage.com. At the Client’s simple request, they can also be sent by e-mail.

By this act, the Client acknowledges having read and understood these Conditions and accepts them.
4.3. Placing the order
The Customer can place his order with Main Sauvage SAS by internet 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Once the selection of products has been made, and the basket validated, the Customer must:
1. identify themselves either by entering their email address and password, which are strictly personal, or by mentioning all the information usually requested for an online registration
2. indicate the information necessary for delivery. This concerns in particular the precise delivery address as well as any restrictions on the accessibility of the place of delivery (building, digicode, etc.).
Any order implies acceptance of the prices and description of the products available for sale. Any dispute on this point will occur in the context of a possible exchange and the guarantees mentioned below.
In all cases, the online provision of the credit card number and the final validation of the order by the Customer will be worth proof of the order and the sums due for the products selected in the order. This validation is equivalent to signature and acceptance of all operations carried out on the website www.mainsauvage.com.
4.4. Information provided when ordering
The Customer is responsible for the accuracy and completeness of his Customer account and order information to ensure proper processing. Thus, in particular, the Customer’s address and the delivery address of the order are under its full responsibility.

The costs incurred by Main Sauvage SAS following errors on the information provided by the Client will be borne by the Client, in particular the costs of reshipping the order.
4.5. Order confirmation

4.6. Follow-up of the order
The Customer may at any time consult the status of his order by consulting the “My Account” section on the website www.mainsauvage.com. This tracking allows the Customer to know the status of his order processing, but also the status of shipment or delivery of his packages. This last tracking of delivery is carried out in interface with the Internet means of tracking carriers. Main Sauvage cannot therefore be held responsible for unavailability or errors that may affect the information provided by its carriers.

5.1. Product information and characteristics
In accordance with Article L 111-1 of the Consumer Code, Main Sauvage SAS endeavours to present as best as possible, on the technical data sheets of the products, the essential characteristics of the latter of which the Customer must be aware.
The photographs and graphics presented on the Main Sauvage SAS website or in the emails sent by Main Sauvage SAS are provided for information purposes only. In particular, the difference in colour perception between the photographs or graphics presented and the Products cannot engage the responsibility of Main Sauvage SAS.
The said company will do its best to ensure that the photographic representation of the products on the www.mainsauvage.com website is as accurate as possible. It is nevertheless possible that the perception of the Product(s) does not fully correspond to the Product(s), as the latter are hand-made in fair trade workshops.
Prices are expressed in euros. The price guaranteed to the buyer is the one displayed on the site at the time of purchase.
The price fixed at the time of purchase is firm and definitive. It does not include the contribution to the delivery costs invoiced in addition and which will be indicated in the order confirmation.
For deliveries within the European Union, prices take into account the VAT applicable on the day of the order. They are therefore indicated including VAT.
No other customs duties or VAT will be payable for a supply within the European Union. Any change in the applicable rate may be reflected in the selling price of the products in the catalogue.
Orders to countries outside the European Union are not subject to French VAT. The prices indicated on the site for these orders are exclusive of VAT and therefore do not take into account VAT. However, these orders are subject to any taxes and customs duties in the country of destination.
ARTICLE 6: PAYMENT
The Customer can pay online by credit card (Carte Bleue, Visa, Eurocard-Mastercard) with the Stripe solution or by Paypal.
The Client guarantees Main Sauvage that he has the necessary authorizations to use the payment method chosen by him, when validating the order form. Purchases are debited to the customer’s account when the order is processed. Main Sauvage uses all necessary means to ensure the security and confidentiality of data transmitted online. For this purpose, the site uses a secure SSL (Secure Socket Layer) payment method that encrypts your bank details when they are transmitted over the network. You will notice that the transmission is encrypted by software as soon as the padlock symbol appears in your browser. The transaction is carried out via the Stripe online payment solution, which alone has the banking information provided on the site at the time of payment.
Main Sauvage reserves the right to suspend any order management and delivery in the event of refusal of authorization of payment by credit card from officially accredited organizations or in the event of non-payment. Main Sauvage reserves the right to refuse to make a delivery or to honour an order from a Customer who has not fully or partially paid for a previous order or with whom a payment dispute is being administered. As part of an order verification procedure designed to ensure that no one uses another person’s bank details without their knowledge, the Client may be asked to send a copy of an identity document and proof of address by fax or e-mail to Main Sauvage. The order will only be validated after receipt and verification by our services of the parts sent. If these documents are not received within 15 days of the order being placed, the order will be deemed to have been cancelled automatically.

In the event that such information has not been entered on the delivery slip presented to the Customer by the carrier, no claim relating to the condition of the package(s) may be accepted a posteriori by Main Sauvage.
The products are delivered to the address indicated by the Customer on the order form. The Client must verify the completeness and conformity of the information it provides to Main Sauvage, which cannot be held responsible for delays in delivery due to errors or disruptions attributable to the carriers (including in particular in the event of a total or partial strike, in particular of postal services and means of transport and/or communications).
8.6. Delivery delays related to the carrier
In the event of a delay in delivery in relation to the deadlines announced by the carriers, the Customer must first contact the carrier or its distribution office in the case of La Poste, to see if the package is not pending. If necessary, the Customer may contact Main Sauvage Customer Service by telephone or e-mail to open a dispute or investigation file to conduct a search for the package.
Sometimes packages are lost by carriers. The delays imposed by the carriers require the Client to declare the loss within 10 days of receiving the shipping notice from Main Sauvage. Under these conditions, Main Sauvage is responsible for making the necessary claims against the carrier concerned. Once the complaint has been made and the investigation opened, he can run a delay of 3 to 4 weeks to have a return from the carrier.
If the package is found, it will be immediately redirected to the Customer’s home. In the event that the package is not found, the Customer may then request the return of the same product (within the availability period), at the expense of Main Sauvage, or the refund of the amount paid. If the product(s) ordered were no longer available at that time, Main Sauvage will refund the amount of the products affected by the carrier’s loss.
8.7. Damaged packages
The Customer must check the condition of the package in front of the carrier and make the necessary reservations on the delivery note in the event of partial or total deterioration. In the absence of any reservation, the product is deemed to have been accepted by the Customer and may not be the subject of any dispute concerning its delivery. The Client must inform Main Sauvage by e-mail as soon as possible, so that Main Sauvage can take the necessary measures as soon as possible.
ARTICLE 9: TRANSFER OF RISK
