11- SHIPPING AND DELIVERY
The deliveries are ensured by the services of TREMAIL Logistics, from Monday to Saturday, according to the option chosen by the Customer at the time of the validation of his order.
“Delivery” means the transfer from Guillot SA to the Customer of physical possession of the Products.
The applicable delivery charges are those made available to the Customer on the website at the time of the order in the “Delivery and returns” section.
When Guillot SA is in charge of the delivery of the Products, the risk of loss or deterioration of the Products is transferred to the Customer.
In certain cases, the risk is transferred to the Customer when the Products are handed over to the carrier when the latter is in charge of the transport and asked by the Customer and not by Guillot SA.
The delivery is made to the delivery address indicated by the Customer, insofar as this cannot be other than the address of residence of the Customer, a third person or his company. No deliveries will be made to hotels or PO boxes.
In the event of impossibility to carry out a delivery, due to an erroneous address or to the non-withdrawal of the Products by the Customer near the point relay which this last chose at the time of the order, no forwarding could be carried out and the Customer will be refunded within five days, as from the date of reception of the order by Guillot SA.
In order for delivery times to be met, it is imperative that the Customer has provided accurate and complete information regarding the delivery address, including: street number, building, staircase, access code, names and/or intercom numbers, floor…).
Guillot SA cannot be held responsible for any delay in the delivery of the Products that is not its fault or justified by a case of force majeure (as defined below).
If the delivery time is exceeded, the Customer may request cancellation of the sale and obtain within a maximum of fourteen days after his request, reimbursement of the sums paid for the purchase of the Products ordered. Guillot SA cannot be held responsible for damages resulting from late delivery and only the refund of Products ordered can be made and any other claim for compensation cannot be heard.
12- RIGHT OF WITHDRAWAL, REFUNDS AND RETURNS
The Customer has a period of 14 days from the day after he takes possession of the goods to withdraw from his order without having to justify a reason or pay a penalty. Beyond this period of 14 days, the sale is firm and final. The Customer may also exercise his right of withdrawal before shipping his order.
It is then the Customer’s responsibility to return the Product to Guillot’s address listed in the Customer Service article below.
Before any return, it is important to note that the Customer must imperatively inform Guillot SA Customer Service by email and wait for his return before starting any procedure of return of the Product.
The Product must be complete, in its original packaging and accompanied by a copy of the purchase invoice indicating the reason for refusal on the delivery note or invoice.
When the Product is addressed to a third party, the latter may only request an exchange. No refund can be made to the third party recipient in the event of a price difference. The Customer retains his right of withdrawal in all cases.
The Product is then refunded to the Customer within fourteen days using the same means of payment as that used by the consumer for the initial transaction, following the date on which the withdrawal was requested. Beyond this term, the amount due shall bear interest at the legal rate in force. Refunds are made by crediting the credit card with which the Customer paid for the Product.
The shipping costs for a return within the trial period and those for a return under a warranty or repair claim (for defects that appeared after the use of the item by the buyer) are borne by the buyer. In case of revocation by the buyer within the trial period, Guillot SA will credit the buyer with the amount of the item within 14 days of receipt of the return (return fees are not refunded). Any amount due following the return of an item will be credited to the account that the buyer used to pay for the initial order.
If the buyer wishes to use his right to revoke the contract and cancel his order, while the buyer’s order has already left Guillot SA’s warehouse (which will generally occur on working days as soon as the buyer has placed his order) – even if the shipment has not yet arrived at the shipping address indicated by the buyer – the costs of returning the item to Guillot SA’s warehouse will be borne by the buyer. If customs duties, import duties or (administrative) charges are due because the shipment was imported into the country of shipment selected by the buyer (a process that, in most cases, cannot be stopped once the package is en route to the country of shipment selected by the buyer), these charges will be borne by the buyer. On the date Guillot SA credits the buyer, Guillot SA will deduct customs taxes, import duties and/or (administrative) fees, to the extent that these amounts have been invoiced to Guillot SA (as sender of the package).
The right of withdrawal stipulated in this article does not apply to custom-made watches that the customer personalizes by choosing one or more technical or dimensioning options proposed when ordering.
Individual customers have the option of returning the order within 30 days from the date of receipt.
This duty is only applicable when the Product and its original packaging can be returned in the condition in which they were received. Any customer wishing to use his right of return must contact Guillot SA to inform him.
Return shipping costs are the responsibility of the customer. If a Product is damaged during transport, Guillot SA must be contacted within 30 days to obtain information regarding compensation.
The Products benefit from the legal guarantee of conformity. This guarantee must be invoked by the Customer within two years from delivery.
The Products also benefit from the guarantee against hidden defects. This guarantee must be invoked by the Customer within two years from the discovery of the defect.
The warranty does not apply in case of:
- Faults or damage resulting from improper use (scratches, falls, shocks, bounces, crushing, bumps, etc.);
- Breakdowns or damage due to unjustifiable repair or modification;
- Intentional damage;
- Normal wear or ageing of the materials used;
- If the warranty cannot be provided with the watch;
In the case where the date of purchase or the point of sale are not indicated on the delivery note or rewritten by hand.
This guarantee ensures that you can receive a free replacement, in accordance with these general conditions of use and within the prescribed period and does not restrict any legitimate right of the customer.
Guillot SA is held under the online sales process to an obligation of means; its liability may not be incurred for damages resulting from the use of the Internet network such as loss of data, intrusion, virus action or service disruption.
Guillot SA shall not be liable for the non-performance or improper performance of this online sales contract if this is attributable either to the consumer, to the unforeseeable and insurmountable fact of a third party, or to a case of force majeure.
