13.1 Legal guarantee of conformity

Article L.217-4 of the Consumer Code provides that "the seller is required to deliver goods in accordance with the contract and is liable for any lack of conformity existing at the time of delivery. It also responds to any lack of conformity resulting from the packaging, assembly instructions or installation when this has been charged to it by the contract or has been carried out under its responsibility”.

Article L217-5 of the Consumer Code provides that: "The good complies with the contract:

1 ° If it is suitable for the use usually expected of a similar good and, if applicable: - if it corresponds to the description given by the seller and has the qualities that the seller has presented to the buyer in the form of a sample or a model; - if the good has the qualities that a buyer can legitimately expect given the public statements made by the seller, the producer or his/her representative, in particular in advertising or labelling;

2 ° Or if the good has the characteristics defined by mutual agreement by the parties or is suitable for any special use sought by the buyer, brought to the attention of the seller and which the seller has accepted. "

Article L217-12 of the Consumer Code provides that "action resulting from lack of conformity lapses two years after delivery of the goods".

13.2 Guarantee against hidden defects 

Article 1641 of the Civil Code provides that "the seller is liable for hidden defects of the item sold which make it unfit for its intended use, or which reduce this use so much that the buyer would not have bought it, or would have given a lower price, if he/she had been aware of them”.

Article 1648 of the Civil Code provides that "the action resulting from unacceptable defects must be brought by the purchaser within two years of the discovery of the defect. Article1642-1 provides that the action must be brought, under penalty of foreclosure, within one year of the date on which the seller can be discharged from liability for defects or for lack of conformity”.

13.3 Exclusion of guarantees

Products modified, repaired, integrated or added by the Customer are excluded from guarantee. The guarantee does not cover apparent defects. The guarantee does not cover products damaged during transport or due to improper use.

13.4 Methods of implementing legal guarantees

The legal guarantee of conformity applies regardless of any commercial guarantee granted.

The Customer may decide to implement the guarantee against hidden defects of the item sold within the meaning of Article 1641 of the Civil Code. In this case, the Customer can choose between cancelling the sale or a reduction of the sale price in accordance with Article 1644 of the Civil Code.

For any request concerning legal guarantees, the Customer must contact Customer Service by email: contact@breakgourmand.com

These provisions are not exclusive of the right of withdrawal defined in Article 12 above.

- either to replace the Product with an identical product depending on available stocks,
