If the Customer is not home at the time of delivery, a note is left informing the Customer of how the package will be retained and made available, under the complete and exclusive responsibility of the carrier.

Luftmensch et Alors cannot be responsible for late delivery due exclusively to the unavailability of the Customer.
If an Item is delivered and does not match the Customer's Order, or was damaged during delivery, the Customer may exchange the aforementioned Item with Luftmensch et Alors. In this case, additional shipping fees will be covered by Luftmensch et Alors.
In order to organise an exchange, the Customer must contact Luftmensch et Alors no later than 2 calendar days after the reception of his/her Order. Any claim made after this deadline will not be accepted and Luftmensch et Alors will be released from any liability.
All exchanges must include all the Items of the Order applying to the exchange. These items must be returned properly protected in their original packaging (a carefully opened package will not be considered damaged packaging) and in a resalable condition (undamaged, unused, unwashed and unsoiled by the Customer).
Any non-compliant return shall be rejected and Luftmensch et Alors will be released from any liability.
Once the return is verified and approved, Luftmensch et Alors will exchange the Item(s) as soon as possible and no later than 20 calendar days after the date on which the Articles were received.

These items must be returned properly protected in their original packaging (a carefully opened package will not be considered damaged packaging) and in a resalable condition (undamaged, unused, unwashed and unsoiled by the Customer).
Once the return is validated, Luftmensch et Alors will reimburse the Customer the full amount paid for the Order, excluding shipping fees, to the Customer's bank account used for payment of items, as soon as possible and no later than 30 calendar days after the date on which the Articles were received.
Items are guaranteed against compliance defects and latent defects in accordance with Articles 1641 to 1649 of the Civil Code and L 211-1 et seq. of the Consumer Code (France), as of delivery:
- Article 1641 of the Civil Code: the seller is obliged to provide a warranty against hidden defects of the thing sold which render it unfit for the use for which it was intended, or that decrease this use so that the buyer would have not purchased it, or would have paid a lower price if he/she had known.
- Article 1648, paragraph 1 of the Civil Code: the action resulting from latent defects must be filed by the purchaser within two years after discovery of the defect.
- Article L. 211-4 of the Consumer Code: the seller must deliver goods in compliance with the contract and liable for compliance defects existing at the time of delivery. It also addresses lack of compliance resulting from the packaging, instructions for assembly or installation when it was assigned this by the contract or carried out under its responsibility.
- Article L. 211-5 of the Consumer Code: to comply with the contract, the item must:
1 / Be suitable for the purpose usually expected of a similar item, and where appropriate:
- correspond to the description given by the seller and possess the qualities that it has presented to the buyer as a sample or model;
- feature the qualities that a buyer might reasonably expect given the public statements made by the seller, the manufacturer or its representative, particularly in advertising or labeling;
2/ Or have the characteristics defined by mutual agreement by the parties or be suitable for any particular purpose for which the buyer made known to the seller and the latter accepted.
- Article L 211-12 of the Consumer Code: the action resulting from lack of compliance is recorded within two years after delivery of the goods.

14. AGREEMENT UPON PROOF
The Customer recognises and accepts that the Order recording systems document all the transactions made between Luftmensch et Alors and the Customer.
The Customer recognises and accepts that the proof of acceptance of the TOS is characterised by validating the Order. For this purpose, the Customer acknowledges and agrees that the electronic data stored in Luftmensch et Alors computer servers in reasonable conditions of security and integrity are considered, irrefutably, as evidence of acceptance of the terms of the TOS and the proof of all transactions between the Customer and Luftmensch et Alors.
Luftmensch et Alors will save the Purchase orders and invoices on a reliable and durable medium, pursuant to the provisions of Article 1348 of the Civil Code and guaranteeing access to the Customer at any time if they so request it in accordance with the provisions of Article L. 134-2 of the Consumer Code.
Consequently, unless a clear error on the part of Luftmensch et Alors is proven by the Customer, the latter cannot challenge the admissibility, validity or probative value of the TOS and the content of the Order, based on any of the legal provisions that exist and that specify that certain documents must be written or signed to constitute proof.
Thus, these elements constitute proof and, if they are produced as evidence by Luftmensch et Alors in any litigation or otherwise, shall be admissible, valid and opposable in the same manner, under the same conditions and with the same probative value as any document created, received or retained in writing.
Luftmensch et Alors reserves the right to modify the information contained in this Site at any time and without notice.
The responsibility of Luftmensch et Alors cannot be retained in the event that one of its contractual obligations is not fulfilled resulting from a fortuitous circumstance or Force Sandroure as defined by case law rendered by French courts. Notably, Luftmensch et Alors shall not be held responsible for any non-performance or delay in the execution of Orders, caused by events outside its control ("Case of Force Sandroure"). A Case of Force Sandroure includes any act, event, non-performance, omission or accident beyond the control of Luftmensch et Alors. The execution of the TOS shall be suspended for as long as the Case of Force Sandroure continues and the execution and delivery lead times shall be extended accordingly. Luftmensch et Alors will endeavour as far as possible to end the Force Sandroure or to find a solution allowing it to fulfil its contractual obligations despite the Force Sandroure.
