These General Terms and Conditions of Sale and Use (GTCSU) determine the rights and obligations of the parties in connection with the sale of products offered by the seller, in particular the terms and conditions of sale of the products listed on the vittascience.com website. These GTCSU apply to all product sales made through the company's internet sites that are an integral part of the agreement between the buyer and the seller. The seller reserves the right to modify these at any time by publishing a new version on its website. The applicable GTCSUs are those in effect on the date of payment (or the first payment in the case of multiple payments) of the order. The customer declares to be able to legally contract under French law or validly represent the natural or legal person for whom he\she represents. Unless proven otherwise, the information recorded by the company constitutes proof of all transactions. We sell products in different countries, so these General Terms and Conditions of Sale and Use are globally applicable. It is, however, possible that additional laws apply depending on the country where you live. We comply with these applicable laws; no provision of these terms and conditions of sale and use may be construed as limiting your rights, if the laws in question provide you with greater rights than those set forth in the terms and conditions set forth herein.

This contractual information is presented in detail. In accordance with French law, contractual information includes a summary and confirmation upon validation of the order. The parties agree that the illustrations or photos of the products offered for sale have no contractual value.

In case the ordered product is not available, the company Vittascience agrees to inform the buyer as soon as possible. The products are delivered to the delivery address indicated at the time of order and according to the indicated delay. This delay does not take into account the time involved in the preparation of the order. In case of late delivery, the customer has the possibility to resolve the contract under the terms and conditions defined in Article L 138-2 of the Consumer Code. No price discount or payment of incurred damages may be requested in this case. The seller reminds that at the moment the customer assumes physical possession of the products, the risk of loss or damage of the products is transferred to the customer. It is the customer's responsibility to notify the carrier of any reservations regarding the delivered product. Unless expressly requested by the customer, we do not deliver during school breaks (closed schools: parcels return).

Article 7: Product reception by the buyer

Upon reception, the buyer must check the condition of the delivered package and refuse it if it is damaged. If a dubious or damaged parcel is accepted without reservation noted and signed on the delivery note, its dubious or damaged state is entirely the buyer’s responsibility. When the delivery note is signed, the carrier is released from any liability and no further action is possible. The company Vittascience declines any responsibility if a dubious or damaged package is accepted by the buyer without reservation indicated on the delivery note. Vittascience takes the utmost care in checking and preparing packages. The buyer must check the contents of the delivery within 48 hours and must contact the Vittascience company within the delay of 48 hours after delivery Vittascience to report any anomaly or missing component, preferably by email: contact@vittascience.com.
