If and when, at some point, MOYNAT proposes other delivery options, such options will be listed during the ordering process, together with the corresponding additional costs that you will be required to pay should you select one of those other delivery options, if any.
In addition, please note that, on top of the price of the MOYNAT products showing on the Website, and even in the case of express shipment offered by MOYNAT, placing an order on the Website may trigger certain import/custom duties and taxes (hereinafter the “Taxes and Duties") for an international delivery/shipment outside of the EU.
The Taxes and Duties do not depend on MOYNAT and are beyond our control, they are set by the custom authorities of your chosen destination country/location and depend on a number of factors such as (without limitation) the value of your order and local import taxes.

In this respect, during the ordering process, and more precisely after you have indicated your destination and delivery country/ location in the delivery form as per articles 5 and 6 below, if the prepayment option is available, you will be able to consult the amount of prepaid Taxes and Duties that is applicable to your order. If you accept this amount and confirm the same by selecting the prepayment option, such amount will then be added to the MOYNAT product prices (and the delivery costs, if any)n and included in the total amount you are required to pay for your order. In such case, there will be no additional Taxes and Duties to pay by you upon receipt of your order.
The costs that you incur when using remote connection means when placing an order on the Website (cost of Internet access, telephone charges) remain at your expense.
For all orders placed on the Website, payment must be made immediately and in full after you place your order. The amount of your order will be blocked on your credit or debit card but this amount will not be debited until the Order Confirmation is sent by MOYNAT.

The consumer benefits from a two-year period starting from the delivery of the good to obtain the execution of the legal guarantee of conformity in case of a defect of conformity. During this period, the consumer is only required to establish the existence of the defect of conformity, and not the date of its appearance.
When the contract relates to the provision of a digital content/material or digital service on a continuous basis for a period exceeding two years, the legal guarantee is applicable to this digital content/material or service throughout the whole period of provision mentioned. During this period, the consumer is only required to establish the existence of the defect of conformity, and not the date of its appearance.
The legal guarantee of conformity implies that the professional shall provide all the necessary updates in order to maintain the conformity of the good.
The legal guarantee of conformity grants the consumer with the right to have the good repaired or replaced within a thirty (30) days period upon his request, without any cost and major inconvenience related for him.
If the good is repaired in furtherance of the legal guarantee of conformity, the consumer benefits from an extra 6-months guarantee extension period in addition to the initial period.
If the consumer requests the repair of the good, but the seller imposes the replacement, the legal guarantee of conformity is renewed for a two-year period starting from the date of the replacement of the good.
The consumer may obtain reduction of the price by keeping the good or may terminate the contract and receive a full refund in exchange of the returned good, if:
1° The professional refuses to repair or replace the good;
2° The repair or replacement of the good intervenes after a 30-day period;
3° The repair or replacement of the good causes a major inconvenience to the consumer, in particular when the consumer bears definitively the costs of the return or removal of the defective good, or if he bears the costs of installation of the repaired or replaced good;
4° The defect of conformity of the good persists in spite of the unsuccessful attempt of the seller to achieve conformity of the good.
The consumer is also entitled to a reduction of the price of the good or to terminate the contract where the defect of conformity is so severe that it justifies immediate reduction in price or termination of the contract. The consumer is then not required to request the repair or replacement of the good beforehand.
The consumer is not entitled to the termination of the contract if the defect of conformity of the good is only minor.
Any period of time during which the good is immobilized for its repair or replacement suspends the guarantee which remained in effect until the delivery of the restored good.
The rights above mentioned result from the application of articles L. 217-1 to L. 217-32 of the Consumer Code.
A seller who, in bad faith, obstructs the execution of the legal guarantee of conformity is liable to a civil fine of a maximum amount of 300,000 euros, which may be increased to 10% of the average annual turnover (Article L. 241-5 of the Consumer Code).
The consumer also benefits from the legal guarantee against hidden defects in accordance with article 1641 to 1649 of the Civil Code, for a two-year period starting from the discovery of the defect. This guarantee entitles the consumer to a price reduction if they keep the product, or to a full refund upon return of the product.
It being specified that the guarantor of the conformity of the products that you have ordered on the Website under the two aforementioned legal guarantees is MOYNAT.
- CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY
All MOYNAT products purchased through the Website are accompanied by our certificate of authenticity which will be included in the package that you receive upon delivery of the MOYNAT product.

- Applicable law and choice of court
These General Terms and Conditions are governed by French law, with the exception of its provisions concerning conflicts of law.

- FORCE MAJEURE
