POUPON makes its best efforts to ensure that the photographs of the Products are as close as possible to the Products actually delivered to the Customer (color of the Products in particular). POUPON cannot ensure that the Products will be exactly identical to the photographs, in particular because of the technical constraints of provision of the photographs on the Site.

The Customer is required to provide complete, up to date and accurate information, the responsibility of POUPON cannot be engaged for this reason. The Client is informed that some of the information requested is mandatory for the proper execution of the Sales Order, which the Client expressly acknowledges. The description of the Products is available to the Customer on the Site, which the Customer accepts and acknowledges. Once the Sales Order has been finalized, POUPON will confirm the acceptance of the order by sending an e-mail to the Client at the address indicated when the Sales Order was placed.

ARTICLE 6 : Delivery
Products are delivered to the address indicated by the client on the order form. Delivery charges will be indicated on the Web Site during the Sales Order process and must be accepted by the Client when the Sales Order is confirmed. They shall be indicated on a separate line from the price of the Products.

If no delivery time is indicated on the Web Site, POUPON commits itself to deliver the Products within a maximum delay of thirty days from the date of the Sales Order confirmation email sent to the Client by POUPON. However, since POUPON relies on external service providers (logisticians, carriers, postal services, etc.) to ship the Products, POUPON is totally dependent on these third-party providers.

When the product is delivered to the address indicated on the order form by a carrier, it is the responsibility of the buyer to check the condition of the delivered product in the presence of the delivery person and, in case of damage or missing items, to make reservations on the delivery note or on the transport receipt, and possibly to refuse the product and to notify the seller.
