Article 12.1. Guarantee of Conformity
Article L. 217-4, French Code de la consommation“The Seller shall deliver goods that conform to the sales contract and shall be liable for any lack of conformity at the point of delivery. The Seller is also liable for any lack of conformity resulting from the packaging, or instructions for assembly or installation, where this has been put under the Seller’s responsibility by the contract or has been carried out under the Seller’s responsibility.
Article L.217-5, FrenchCode de la consommation: “The goods conform to the sales contract:
The Seller is liable for any lack of conformity at the time of delivery and for lack of conformity resulting from the packaging, the instructions for assembly or installation when this has been the Seller’s responsibility or has been carried out under the Seller’s responsibility.
Any action resulting from lack of conformity lapses after two (2) years from delivery of the Product (Article L.217-12 of the French Code de la consommation).
Where there is a lack of conformity, the Customer may choose to request replacement or repair of the Product. However, should the cost of the Customer’s choice be clearly disproportionate to the other possible option, given the value of the Product or the extent of the lack, the Seller may effect a refund without following up on the option chosen by the Customer.
If replacement or repair is impossible, the Seller shall undertake to refund the price of the Product within thirty (30) days from receipt of the returned Product, and in exchange for the Product returned by the Customer to the following address:
Niwashi.fr - 29, route de Saint Chéron - 27120 Villégats.
Lastly, the Customer is exempted from proving the existence of the lack of conformity of the Product for the twenty-four (24) months following delivery of the Product except for second-hand goods for which the limit is fixed at six (6) months. (Article L. 217-7 of the French Code de la consommation).
It is specified that the present legal guarantee of conformity applies independently from any commercial guarantee provided, where applicable, on the Products.
Article 12.2. Guarantee against hidden defects
The Seller is held liable for any hidden defects in the Product sold which may render it unsuitable for the use for which it was intended, or which reduce this use to such an extent that the Customer would not have acquired it or would only have given a lower price had he/she been aware of them. (Article 1641 of the French Civil Code.)
This guarantee shall enable the Customer who can provide evidence of a hidden defect to choose between a refund on the price of the Product if it is returned, or a refund for part of the price if the Product is not returned.
Where replacement or repair is not possible, the Seller shall undertake to refund the price of the Product within thirty (30) days of receipt of the returned Product and in exchange for the return of the Product by the Customer to the following address: Niwashi.fr - 29, route de Saint Chéron - 27120 Villégats. Any action arising from redhibitory defects must be brought by the Customer within a period of two (2) years from the time the defect was detected.

ARTICLE 14. FORCE MAJEURE
The Seller shall not be deemed liable where the failure to fulfil, or any delay in fulfilling, one of the Seller’s obligations, as described in these present Terms and Conditions of Sale, arises from a case of force majeure.
There is force majeure in contractual matters when an event outwith the control of the debtor, which could not reasonably have been anticipated at the conclusion of the contract and where the effects of the event could not have been avoided by taking appropriate steps, prevents the debtor from fulfilling the appropriate obligation.
Should the impediment be temporary, the undertaking is suspended unless the resulting delay justifies terminating the contract. Should the impediment be definitive the contract is terminated as of right and the parties are freed from their obligations under the terms laid out in Articles 1351 and 1351-1 of the French Civil Code.
In the same context the Seller shall not be held liable in particular for cyberattack, unavailability of materials, supplies, spare parts, personal or other equipment, interruptions to electronic communication networks, and also for the occurrence of any circumstance or event outwith the control of the Seller arising after the conclusion of a contract under the Terms and Conditions of Sale and impeding its fulfilment under normal conditions.
It is specified that in a situation such as that set out above, the Customer may not claim payment of any compensation and may not institute any proceedings against the Seller.

Condition of goods returned
The Product must be returned according to the instructions provided by the Seller and must include all accessories delivered with the Product.
The Customer is liable solely for any depreciation in the value of the goods resulting from handling other than that which is necessary to determine the nature, features and correct functioning of the Product.

Supply of goods which by their very nature are mixed with other units in such a way that they are no longer inseparable from other units;
Supply of digital content not supplied in a dematerialised format where implementation has already begun with the express prior agreement of the Customer, which party has also acknowledged that in this way he /she shall forfeit the right to cancellation;
