terms of sales

preamble

Renault Retail Group has authored the offers proposed on https://theoriginals-store.renault.com/, and is responsible for the processing of personal data and for the content on the https://theoriginals-store.renault.com/ website. These general terms and conditions of sale exclusively govern the contractual relationship between Renault Retail Group and a User who wishes to place an order on the https://theoriginals-store.renault.com/ website. They apply to any order for products placed on the https://theoriginals-store.renault.com/ website, to the exclusion of any other terms and conditions.

The User acknowledges having read these general terms and conditions when placing the order and expressly declares he/she unconditionally accepts said general terms and conditions. Renault Retail Group reserves the right to modify or adapt these general terms and conditions of sale. In the event of a change, the general terms and conditions of sale in force on the day of the order will be those that apply.


Article 1. Order process

1.1 When the User has chosen his/her product, he/she clicks on the “Add to shopping cart” button.


By clicking on this button, the User starts the online order process. The User then confirms the order in his/her shopping cart by clicking on “Please place my order”. Subsequently, the User may, if he/she wishes, identify himself/herself:


  • If he/she already has an account, by using his/her email address and password which will be strictly confidential. If the password is lost or forgotten, the User may request it by clicking on “Forgot your password?”. He/she will then receive a new password at the email address that he/she communicated at the time of registration, which will allow him/her to reset his/her password;
  • If he/she does not have an account, he/she must create one by entering the following information: email address, password, Mr/Ms, last name, first name, full address, date of birth, landline or mobile phone number.

  • The User may also, if he/she wishes, start the order process without creating an account. Once the shopping cart has been confirmed, the User must select the delivery address and accept the general terms and conditions. At this stage, the user will be able to cancel or modify the information in his/her order. Finally, the User must confirm the payment method. This last stage formalises the sales contract between Renault Retail Group and the User. During this last stage, the User will be redirected directly to the secure site of Renault Retail Group's banking partner and will be able to make his/her bank payment.


    1.2 As soon as the reservation has been finalised, the website displays an order confirmation page, and the User will receive an email confirming his/her purchase within a maximum period of 24 hours.


    Failing receipt of the confirmation email, it is up to the User to contact Renault Retail Group by email (theoriginals-store@renault.com) to ensure that his/her order has been recorded.


    Article 2. Products

    The products presented on https://theoriginals-store.renault.com/ can be sold alone or grouped within a single order.

    Article 3. Availability of products

    The product offers and related prices are valid as long as they are visible on the website.


    All transactions are made within the limits of available stocks. Product availability is checked upon receipt of each order at the warehouse.


    The photographs of the products have no contractual value.


    If the products ordered are unavailable, i.e. if Renault Retail Group is unable to deliver the order to the User by the deadlines set out in Article 4.2 below, Renault Retail Group will inform the User thereof by email or telephone and will also inform the User of the probable deadline for the fulfilment of his/her order. It will then be incumbent on the User to inform Renault Retail Group within 48 hours whether he/she wishes to maintain his/her order.


    If the User cancels his/her order, Renault Retail Group will send him/her the related refund within a maximum period of fourteen (14) days from receipt of payment of the sums paid.

    Section 4. Financial terms and conditions


    4.1 Prices


    The prices set out on https://theoriginals-store.renault.com/ are expressed in euros, inclusive of tax, and are indicated without the shipping costs which are to be paid by the User.

    Depending on the location in which the User connects to the internet, the prices may not indicate taxes. When the price indicated includes all taxes, value added tax (VAT) is payable at the applicable rate indicated at the time the order is placed.


    The User is informed that the sales prices do not include any customs fees.


    The legislation applicable to the User in light of the country in which the User connects to the internet may provide for direct or indirect taxes that Renault Retail Group does not collect.


    Any tax not indicated during the order process is to be paid by the User, in accordance with the legislation applicable in the country where the User placed his/her order.


    Since the prices are always displayed in euros, a User who has connected to the internet in a country whose currency does not correspond to the currency used on https://theoriginals-store.renault.com/ must seek information on the fees and exchange rates applicable at the time he/she places his/her order.


    The amount to be paid by the User includes the product’s sales price, the delivery costs and, where applicable, the taxes referred to above. This amount appears on the order’s summary page.


    These prices remain applicable only on the https://theoriginals-store.renault.com/ website and may under no circumstances be the subject of a direct in-store request.


    Renault Retail Group reserves the right to change its prices at any time, but the products will be invoiced on the basis of the prices in force when the user definitively confirms the order.


    4.2. Shipping costs


    Delivery costs are indicated before the order is confirmed and are invoiced in addition to the product(s) ordered. The amount of the shipping costs is a flat fee, based on the country to which the order is shipped, without taking the weight of the package into account.

  • For deliveries within France, the flat rate for delivery costs is €5. Deliveries will be carried out by the Colissimo carrier;
  • For deliveries within the European Union, the flat rate for delivery costs is €12.

    Deliveries will be carried out by the Colissimo carrier;

  • For deliveries outside the European Union, the flat fee for delivery costs is €21.

  • Deliveries will be carried out by the DHL carrier.


    4.3. Payment terms


    The products and costs of shipping and packaging are payable on the day of shipping.


    Credit card payment is the only payment method accepted for products sold on the https://theoriginals-store.renault.com/ website.


    Article 5: Delivery

    The User may choose to either pick up the product in-store or delivery by a carrier.


    5.1 In-store pick-up


    No delivery cost will be charged to the User for in-store pick-ups.


    Renault Retail Group undertakes to make the product(s) ordered available to the User at the L’Atelier Renault store within a maximum period of three working days.


    If this period is exceeded beyond seven days, the User may request the cancellation of the sale, unless this delay in delivery is due to a case of force majeure, by sending a registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt to L’Atelier Renault, 53 avenue des Champs Elysées - 75008 Paris. He/she will then be reimbursed under the same conditions as those provided for in the fifth paragraph of Article 3.


    When the User picks up his/her order, he/she must present an identity document and his/her order confirmation.


    5.2 Delivery to a home address


    Deliveries within France and the European Union will be made by the Colissimo carrier.


    Deliveries outside the European Union will be made by the DHL carrier.


    At the time of delivery, the recipient must be able to present an identity document and his/her order confirmation.


    5.2.1. Place of delivery


    Deliveries are made in France, within the European Union and abroad.


    5.2.2. Delivery times


    Orders are shipped within an average period of 48 hours of the order confirmation.


    The average delivery time depends on both the delivery address and the authorised carrier (Colissimo or DHL).


    If Renault Retail Group is unable to comply with the order processing deadline, the process indicated in paragraphs 4 and 5 of Article 3 regarding the availability of products will apply.


    5.2.3. Late delivery


    A delay in delivery may not under any circumstances result in the payment of damages to the User. In particular, Renault Retail Group may not be held liable for the consequences of delays beyond its control, notably cases of force majeure or acts of the carrier that delay or prevent the delivery of the products ordered.


    5.2.4. Missing item/Damage


    When the package or packages are handed over in person, the User undertakes to sign the carrier’s delivery receipt after checking the contents of the package(s).


    In the event of a missing item or damage, the User must indicate reservations on the signature sheet, also signed by the carrier, and must keep a copy of the document. In the event of damage, he/she must also refuse the package(s) by adding “refused because of damage” to the delivery receipt.


    If the User does not issue precise reservations when he/she signs the delivery receipt, it is incumbent on the User to prove that the damage occurred during transport and that the damage is attributable to the transport.


    The User must confirm his/her claim and provide his/her reasons for the claim to the carrier by registered letter sent to the “Users Service” (the contact information of which appears on the bill of lading) within three days of delivery of the product and send a copy of his/her letter to Renault Retail Group.


    5.2.5. Non-compliance


    If the order does not comply in terms of its quality or quantity, the User must inform Renault Retail Group thereof by sending an email to theoriginals-store@renault.com.


    5.2.6. Refusal of delivery


    Renault Retail Group reserves the right to refuse a delivery or refuse to honour an order for a User who has not paid a previous order in whole or in part or in the event of an order in dispute.


    Article 6: Transfer of risks


    All products shipped in France, Europe or abroad transit at the User's expense, risk and peril.


    For in-store pick-ups, the transfer of risks regarding products ordered takes place as soon as they are picked up by the User.


    In all cases, it is up to the User to file any potential claim concerning the products (in particular in the event of damage, an apparent defect or a missing item) and to indicate all necessary observations and reservations at the time of acceptance or, where applicable, to refuse acceptance.


    Article 7: Retention of title


    All products sent remain the property of Renault Retail Group until full payment of the order has been received.


    Article 8: Warranties


    8.1. Legal warranties


    In the event of a delivery of a defective or non-compliant product, Renault Retail Group undertakes to either refund the price of the product or to exchange the product for a product of equivalent quality and price, depending on available stocks, at the User’s discretion.


    For any such request, the User must contact Renault Retail Group by sending an email to theoriginals-store@renault.com.


    The User benefits from legal warranties in accordance with the following provisions:

  • Article 1641 of the French Civil Code: The seller is bound by the guarantee for hidden defects in the item sold which render it unfit for the purpose for which it is intended, or which reduce such use so much that the User would not have acquired it or would have paid a lower price if he had known about said hidden defects.

  • Article L217-4 of the French Consumer Code: The good complies with the contract if it meets, in particular, the following criteria:

  • 1° It corresponds to the description, type, quantity and quality, particularly with regard to functionality, compatibility, interoperability or any other characteristic provided for in the contract;


    2° It is fit for any special purpose sought by the consumer, brought to the attention of the seller no later than at the time the contract was signed and which the seller has accepted;


    3° It is delivered with all accessories and installation instructions to be provided in accordance with the contract;


    4° It is updated in accordance with the contract.


  • Article L217-5 of the French Consumer Code: I.-In addition to the criteria for compliance with the contract, the good is compliant if it meets the following criteria:

    2° Where applicable, it has the qualities that the seller presented to the consumer in the form of a sample or model before the contract was signed;


    3° If applicable, the digital elements it contains are supplied in the most recent version available at the time the contract was signed, unless the parties agree otherwise;


    4° If applicable, it is delivered with all accessories, including packaging, and installation instructions that the consumer can legitimately expect;

    III.-The consumer may not challenge conformity by claiming a defect regarding one or more specific characteristics of the good when he/she has been specifically informed that they depart from the conformity criteria set out in this article and to which he/she expressly and separately agreed at the time the contract was signed.

  • Article L217-7 of the French Consumer Code: Conformity defects that appear within twenty-four months of delivery of the good, including a good containing digital elements, are, unless proven otherwise, presumed to exist at the time of delivery, unless such presumption is inconsistent with the nature of the good or the defect claimed.

  • For second-hand goods, this period is twelve months.


    8.2. Contractual warranty


    The products may include a right to a contractual warranty, indicated by the manufacturer on the product leaflet. This contractual warranty does not constitute an obstacle to the legal warranties provided by Articles 1641 et seq. of the French Civil Code and Articles L.217-1 et seq. of the French Consumer Code.

Please [option 1: refund the sum of (…) euros that I paid you by (bank card, etc.) or option 2: send me a new product]. Yours sincerely, (Last name first name)”


    When a User who wishes to return a product is located outside the European Union, he/she must pay the costs for returning the package.


    Products must be returned no later than fourteen (14) days after the User receives the delivery, the postmark serving as proof of the date of shipment. The products must be returned in their original packaging, unused, in perfect condition, along with any instructions and/or accessories, as well as the invoice concerned. Items that are returned used, dirty or damaged will not be accepted.


    After receipt and acceptance of the return by Renault Retail Group, the User will be offered, at his/her choice, either the re-shipment of a new product or a refund for the product.


    In the latter case, the refund will be issued no later than fourteen (14) days from the date on which that right was exercised.
