The operator uses Payplug secure on line payment. The orders may be paid by means of one of the following methods:
- Payment by credit card. The payment is made directly on the secure bank servers of the operator. The bank coordinates of the customer are not transferred to the site. The bank coordinates communicated on the occasion of payment are protected by an encryption method, SSL, Secure Socket Layer. So the coordinates are not available to third parties.
The order of the customer is registered and validated as soon as payment is accepted by the bank that has issued the card.

The contract between the operator and the customer takes effect when the customer sends the confirmation of his order.

When the customer sends an order he must confirm it by means of the “double click” technique, in other words, after selecting the products added to the basket (identification, quantity, price, methods and delivery fees) the customer must check and, if necessary, alter the content of his basket, before validating by clicking on the “ I pay” button. Then he validates his order after indicating his bank coordinates. The double click is worth an electronic or handwritten signature. It constitutes an irrevocable, unreserved acceptance of the customer’s order.
The filing of communications, orders, invoices, is provided by the operator on a reliable and long-lasting support in order to constitute a long-lasting faithful copy. These communications, orders and invoices may be produced as pieces of evidence of a contract. In the absence of evidence to the contrary, the data registered by the operator on Internet by phone prove the transactions between the operator and the customer.
The order may be cancelled by the customer by means of a registered letter with notice of receipt or by any document written on a long-lasting support, in case of:
- delivery of a non-complying product
- delivery beyond the deadline specified in the purchase order or, for want of a specified date, within the thirty days following the establishment of the contract, after the operator has been enjoined, according to the usual procedures, but vainly, to make the delivery.
- price rise unjustified by a technical modification of the product, imposed by public authorities.
In all cases the client may demand the reimbursement of the deposit, to which must be added the interests reckoned at their legal rate, from the date of the deposit.
The order may be cancelled by the operator when
- the buyer refuses the delivery
- the buyer refuses to pay the price or the price balance when the product is delivered.
