The provisions of this article do not prevent you to exercise the right of withdrawal set forth in Section 11 above.
Provisions of the French Consumer Code (Code de la consommation):
Article L. 217-3: “The seller shall deliver goods in compliance with the contract and the criteria set out in Article L. 217-5.
It shall be liable for any lack of conformity existing at the time of delivery of the goods within the meaning of Article L. 216-1, which appear within two years of delivery.
In the case of a contract for the sale of goods comprising digital elements :
1° Where the contract provides for the continuous supply of digital content or a digital service for a period of less than or equal to two years, or where the contract does not determine the period of supply, the seller shall be liable for any lack of conformity of the digital content or digital service that appears within two years of delivery of the goods;
2° Where the contract provides for the continuous supply of digital content or a digital service for a period of more than two years, the seller shall be liable for any lack of conformity of the digital content or digital service which becomes apparent during the period in which it is supplied under the contract.
For such goods, the applicable period shall not deprive the consumer of his right to updates in accordance with the provisions of Article L. 217-19.
The seller shall also be liable, during the same periods, for any lack of conformity resulting from the packaging, the assembly instructions or the installation when the latter was made its responsibility by the contract or was carried out under its responsibility, or when the incorrect installation, carried out by the consumer as provided for in the contract, is due to shortcomings or errors in the installation instructions provided by the seller.
This guarantee period applies without prejudice to Articles 2224 et seq. of the Civil Code. The starting point of the limitation period for the consumer's action is the day on which the consumer becomes aware of the lack of conformity.
Article L. 217-4: The good is in compliant with the contract if it meets in particular, where applicable, the following criteria:
1° It corresponds to the description, type, quantity and quality, in particular as regards functionality, compatibility, interoperability or any other characteristic provided for in the contract
2° It is fit for any special purpose intended by the consumer, made known to the seller at the latest at the time of the conclusion of the contract and accepted by the latter;
3° It is delivered with all the accessories and installation instructions to be provided in accordance with the contract;
4° It is updated in accordance with the contract.
Article L217-28: When the consumer asks the guarantor, during the time of the legal warranty or the commercial warranty granted to him upon the purchase or repairing of a good, a rehabilitation covered by the warranty, any period of immobilization suspends the guarantee which continue to run until the delivery of the repaired good.
This period starts upon the consumer's request for intervention, or from the date on which the goods are made available for repairing or replacement, if this starting point is more favourable to the consumer.
The guarantee period shall also be suspended where the consumer and the guarantor enter into negotiations for an amicable settlement.
Provisions of the French civil Code:
Article 1641: “The seller is bound by a warranty regarding hidden defects in the sold item that render it unfit for the use for which it was intended, or that hinder this use, such that the purchaser would not have bought it, or would have paid a lower price, had these been known”.
Article 1648 al. 1: “Any action resulting from critical defects must be brought by the purchaser within two years following discovery of the defect.”
