ARTICLE 9: STATUTORY WARRANTIES

9.1 Statutory compliance warranty

The French Consumer Code provides as follows concerning the statutory compliance warranty:

Article L. 217-4 of France’s Consumer Code: “The seller must deliver goods that comply with the contract and is liable for any non-compliance upon delivery.

The seller shall also be liable for any non-compliance arising from the packaging, the assembly instructions or the installation if he is responsible for this under the contract or if it was carried out under his responsibility”.

Article L. 211-5: “In order to comply with the contract, the goods must:

  1. Be suited to the use that is normally expected from similar goods, and where applicable:
  • correspond to the description provided by the seller and have the properties that the latter presented to the buyer in the form of a sample or model;
  • feature the properties that a buyer can legitimately expect in view of the public declarations made by the seller, by the producer or by its representative, such as in advertising and on labelling;

  1. Or feature the characteristics defined jointly by the parties or be suited to any special use sought by the buyer, brought to the attention of the seller and which the latter has accepted.”

Article L. 217-12: “Any claim for non-compliance is time-barred two years following the delivery of the goods”.

When acting pursuant to the statutory compliance warranty, a Client:

- has a timescale of two years following the delivery of the goods to take action;

- can choose between repair or replacement of the goods, except if one option has a disproportionate cost for the professional with regard to the value of the goods or the importance of the default, in which case the professional shall opt for the least expensive option;

- is dispensed from having to prove the existence of the compliance defect in the goods during the six months following the delivery of the goods. This timescale was extended to twenty four months as of 18 March 2016, save in the case of second-hand goods.

The statutory compliance warranty applies independently from any commercial warranty that may be provided.

Clients may decide to invoke the warranty against hidden defects in the thing sold as per the meaning of this term in article 1641 of the Civil Code. Should this be the case, they may choose between claiming the rescission of the sale or a reduction of the sale price in accordance with article 1644 of the Civil Code.

9.2 HIDDEN DEFECT WARRANTY

France’s Civil Code provides as follows concerning the warranty against hidden defects:

Article 1641: “The seller is bound by a warranty against hidden defects affecting the thing sold that make it unfit for its purpose or that diminish its usefulness to such an extent that the buyer would not have bought it, or would have offered a lower price for it, had he known about them.”

Article 1648: “Any claims for actionable defects must be brought by the purchaser within two years following the discovery of the fault. In the case mentioned in article 1642-1, the action must be brought within a year following the date on which the seller can be relieved from liability for visible defects or non-compliance of the goods, failing which this right shall be forfeited.”

9.3 ACTIVATION of the statutory warranties

Under the statutory compliance warranty, NARS undertakes, at the Client’s discretion:

  • Either to replace the Product with an identical Product depending on availability;
  • Or to refund the price of the Product within thirty (30) days if it is not possible to replace the Product.

Under the statutory warranty against hidden defects, NARS undertakes, at the Client’s discretion, and after assessment of the defect:

  • Either to refund the price of the Product within thirty (30) days,
  • Or to refund part of the price of the Product within thirty (30) days if the Client decides to keep the Product.

9.4 Exclusion from the warranties

Products that are modified, repaired or otherwise altered by the Client and Products that are damaged due to improper use shall not be covered by the statutory warranties.

ARTICLE 10: LIABILITY IN RELATION TO THE SITE

NARS hereby disclaims liability for any inconvenience or damage arising from the Client’s use of the Internet network, such as breakdowns of the service, external intrusions or the presence of computer viruses and unavailability of the Site due to maintenance operations, technical failures, force majeure events or any other circumstance beyond NARS’s control.


NARS shall not be liable for non-substantial mistakes

NARS shall not be liable if the customer service is unavailable due to events beyond NARS’s control, including in case of a technical failure, interruption of the telephone or internet networks, equipment failure etc.

Without prejudice to the other dispositions of these T&Cs and in particular section 9 on Statutory Warranties, NARS shall only be liable in case of a proven fault attributable to NARS and shall in any case limited to direct damages.

ARTICLE 11: CAPACITY
