These general terms and conditions rule the rights and obligations of the parties in the context of online sale of items to the CLIENT via the Site.  Ordering a product from the Site means the full agreement, without any reservation or restriction, by the CLIENT of these general terms and conditions, which are binding.  Ordering a product from the Site shall mean that the CLIENT acknowledges having read, understood and agreed to these general terms and conditions.  Comptoir du Jardin is entitled to modifying the terms and conditions at any time. However, the terms and conditions that apply to the CLIENT are the ones that are available at the time the order was placed. 

Transactions on the Web Site are exclusively for natural persons and legal entities that are registered as a business as defined by articles L.121-1 et al. of the Code de commerce, and registered on the French territory. Non-registered persons are not allowed to purchase items from the Site. 

Products featured on the site are shown with the greatest possible accuracy.

Therefore, Le Comptoir du Jardin cannot guarantee availability of items shown on the Site. Photos and/or illustrations accompanying products are for information purposes only. 

The CLIENT can place an order online on the Site. In order to do so, CLIENT must first sign in on the Site by entering his/her client code and password. Any Site user who is not yet registered with a client code and password must first go through the registration process. This code and password are confidential and private. Any loss or theft thereof shall be promptly notified to Le Comptoir du Jardin. From the site, CLIENT selects the items to purchase, and the order is then summarized for CLIENT approval. The summary page includes two boxes to check, one named « order confirmation », the other named « I have read and agree to the Terms and Conditions ». If CLIENT wants to confirm the order and has effectively read the General Terms and Conditions, he/she can check these two boxes. By checking the two boxes, CLIENT irrevocably confirms the order. Said order is then firm and definitive. Subject to final payment and to the present conditions, the CLIENT and Le Comptoir du Jardin have then entered a mutual agreement on price and object of the transaction. 

After placing the order as per the conditions detailed above, the CLIENT is prompted to payment as per the conditions detailed hereafter. Le Comptoir du Jardin might then, but not have to, send the CLIENT an email summarizing the purchase. in case of a problem arising from the order, the product, the delivery or an external event (typing error, abnormality, inconsistency, technical difficulty, dispute, supply issue...), Le Comptoir du Jardin shall be entitled to cancelling the order after informing and possibly refunding the CLIENT. Order information is saved in the computer files of Le Comptoir du Jardin and/or its host. These computer logs are deemed to represent the proof of all and any transactions between the parties on the Site. Archiving of the order information is made on a reliable and durable media that can be produced as a proof.

Items are delivered to the delivery address entered by the CLIENT when order is placed.
