Article 7 – Right of withdrawal

The consumer Customer has a withdrawal period of 14 calendar days to cancel a contract relating to the purchase of a product without having to give a reason. This period expires 14 days after the day when the consumer Customer or a third party appointed by the consumer (other than the shipper) takes physical possession of the product. If the consumer Customer exercises his right of withdrawal, he must inform the Seller of this within the withdrawal period, using the withdrawal form provided, available here: (link to WITHDRAWAL FORM) or another non-ambiguous means (for example, letter sent by recorded delivery, fax or email) addressed as follows: DESOBRY SA 1, Rue du Vieux Colombier 7500 TOURNAI Belgium or sent to the following email address: ecommerce@desobry.be. The consumer Customer must then return the product as quickly as possible and at the latest within 14 days following notification of his decision to withdraw, to the following address: DESOBRY SA, 1, Rue du Vieux Colombier, 7500 Tournai, Belgium. The products must be returned in their original packaging, undamaged, accompanied by all their accessories, the user’s guide and the original invoice/delivery slip. The products thus returned must not have been unpacked, unsealed or used in any way whatsoever. Goods that are incomplete, spoiled, damaged or soiled by the Customer will not be taken back. The Customer will bear the direct costs of returning the product. Here are the various steps to follow to return goods: Step 1: The Customer downloads/prints the withdrawal file – available here, fills it in and returns it to the following address: ecommerce@desobry.be. Step 2: The Customer carefully wraps the goods he wishes to return in the original packaging. He includes a copy of the withdrawal file sent by e-mail in the box in which the goods are returned. Step 3: The Customer sticks the shipping label to the box. This label will contain all the information needed for a smooth product return procedure (your details, our delivery address). Step 4: If the goods are in good condition, the Customer will be reimbursed within 14 days of receipt of the goods returned. Unless he suggests collecting the product himself, the Seller may wait, before making the reimbursement, to receive the product or proof that the Customer has actually returned the product, depending which occurs first. For the reimbursement, the Seller uses the same means of payment as that used by the Customer unless the Customer accepts another method. The reimbursement is made without costs for the Customer. If the Customer has opted for a more expensive delivery method than the cheapest standard delivery, the Seller does not have to reimburse the additional costs corresponding the more expensive method. The right of withdrawal of the Customer is excluded, after the Customer has been given prior notification of this exclusion, for 1) products made to the specifications of the consumer Customer or clearly personalised, 2) products that perish rapidly or have a limited shelf life and 3) sealed products which, for reasons of health protection or hygiene, are not suitable for return and the seal on which has been broken after delivery.

Article 8 - Delivery

8 .1 – Place of delivery The products are delivered only within the geographic zones listed in Article 5. The Customer is liable for any incorrect delivery addresses given which may cause additional costs that will be recovered from the Customer. If your order is not delivered on time, you can contact us via the email address ecommerce@desobry.be, giving your Customer or order number. Shipments are always made by a professional carrier. A signature will always be required when goods are received. You agree that the shipment may be delivered to a person other than the Customer if you are not present when delivery is made to the address which you have given. If the person is not present at the time of delivery, the deliverer will leave you a document giving the address of the nearest postal point where you can go and fetch your purchase. It is possible that in some countries, the deliverer may leave your purchase with your neighbours, if they agree to take receipt of the parcel. These terms and conditions of delivery are accepted by the Customer upon payment of his order.

8.2 – Delivery times The delivery times indicated are the average processing and delivery times. These times are provided for information purposes only. Failure to observe these delivery times may not give rise to any form of request for compensation on the part of the Customer. If, due to exceptional circumstances, we are unable to send your order within 15 days of the email confirming the order, you may cancel the order without cost and the reimbursement of the order will be guaranteed. The sums already paid by the Customer will be reimbursed to him within 30 days of receipt of the cancellation request. If, upon receipt of the parcel, the product does not comply, the Customer has a period of 15 calendar days after receipt of his order to inform the Seller of this in writing (by email or post).  After this period, the order is considered de facto to have been delivered and accepted by the Customer and no exchange or reimbursement may take place. The Seller reserves the right to split the delivery of products in line with their availability. If the delivery of an order is split, the last product is delivered within a period of 15 days. When a product offered on the Website consists of various articles, this product is not split for delivery. The goods ordered are transported entirely at the risk of the Customer. The goods risk is transferred at the moment they are paid for by the Customer. Any damage or loss during transport is borne by the Customer. The Seller takes great care with the packaging of the products, but cannot avoid the possibility that biscuits or other products may break during transport or be damaged in another way. The Seller may not incur any liability in this respect.
