The contract shall be deemed to be terminated on receipt by the professional of the letter or document informing it of the termination, unless the professional has complied in the meantime.”

II. The consumer can, however, immediately cancel the contract:
“1 If the professional refuses to deliver the goods or provide the service or if it is obvious that it will not deliver the goods or provide the service;
2 If the professional fails to fulfil its obligation to deliver the goods or provide the service on the date or on expiry of the time limit specified in Article L. 216-1, and this date or time limit constitutes an essential condition of the contract for the consumer. This essential condition results from the circumstances surrounding the conclusion of the contract or from an express request by the consumer before the conclusion of the contract.

The provisions of this Article are without prejudice to the awarding of damages.”
According to Article L. 216-7, where the contract is terminated under the conditions laid down in Article L. 216-6, the professional shall repay to the consumer all of the sums paid, at the latest within fourteen days of the date on which the contract was terminated.”

All items are covered by a 2-year legal guarantee.
All returns are subject to the prior written consent of HISLE and must be sent to :
HISLE SAS, Services Clients, 27-29 rue Thiers, 56000 Vannes, France

In all cases, HISLE is liable for any non-conformity of the goods with the contract, in accordance with the Articles of the French Consumer Code specified below, and for any latent defects in the goods sold as specified in Articles 1641 et seq. of the French Civil Code, under the conditions specified below.

The legal guarantee of conformity applies regardless of any commercial warranty granted by HISLE.

– guarantee of conformity for consumers:
According to Article L. 217-3 (Order 2021-1247 in force on 1 January 2022), “the seller shall deliver goods that comply with the contract and the criteria set out in Article L. 217-5. It is liable for any non-conformities existing at the time of delivery of the goods within the meaning of Article L. 216-1, that appear within a period of TWO YEARS from delivery.
The seller is also liable, within the same period, for any non-conformity resulting from the packaging, assembly instructions or installation, if it is responsible for installation under the contract or if installation was carried out under its responsibility, or if the incorrect installation carried out by the consumer as specified in the contract, is due to shortcomings or errors in the installation instructions supplied by the seller.
This guarantee period applies without prejudice to Articles 2224 et seq. of the French Civil Code. The limitation period for action by the consumer starts on the date when the consumer discovered the non-conformity.”

According to Article L. 217-4, “if applicable, the goods comply with the contract if they meet the following criteria in particular:
1 They comply with the description, type, quantity and quality, in particular as regards functionality, compatibility, interoperability or any other characteristics specified in the contract;
2 They are fit for any special use required by the consumer, notified to the seller no later than at the time when the contract was concluded and accepted by the seller;
3 They are delivered with all accessories and installation instructions, to be provided in accordance with the contract;
4 They are updated in accordance with the contract.”

According to Article L. 217-5, in addition to the criteria of compliance with the contract, the goods are compliant if they meet the following criteria:
“1 They are fit for the use normally expected for goods of the same type, taking into account, if necessary, all provisions of European Union and national law and all technical standards or, if there are no such technical standards, the specific codes of conduct applicable to the sector concerned;
2 Where appropriate, they have the qualities which the seller presented to the consumer in the form of a sample or model before the contract was concluded;
3 Where appropriate, the digital elements they include are supplied in the most recent version available at the time the contract was concluded, unless the parties agree otherwise;
4 Where appropriate, they are delivered with all the accessories, including the packaging, and the installation instructions that the consumer may reasonably expect;
5 Where appropriate, they are supplied with the updates that the consumer may reasonably expect, in accordance with the provisions of Article L. 217-19;
6 They comply with quantity, quality and other characteristics, including in terms of durability, functionality, compatibility and safety, which the consumer may reasonably expect for goods of the same type, in view of the nature of the goods and the public declarations made by the seller, by any person upstream in the transaction chain, or by a person acting on their behalf, including in the advertising or on the labelling.”

– Enforcement of the legal guarantee of conformity by consumers:
According to Article L. 217-8 (Order 2021-1247 Article 9, in force on 1 January 2022) In the event of non-conformity, the consumer is entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced or, failing that, to a reduction in the price or the cancellation of the contract, under the conditions set out in this Subsection.
In addition, the consumer is entitled to suspend payment of all or part of the price or the delivery of the benefit provided for in the contract until the seller has fulfilled its obligations under this Section, in accordance with Articles 1219 and 1220 of the French Civil Code.
The provisions of this Section are without prejudice to the awarding of damages.
According to Article L. 217-9, consumers are entitled to demand that the goods be brought into compliance with the criteria set out in Subsection 1 of this Section.
Consumers ask the seller to bring the goods into compliance by requesting their repair or replacement. For that purpose, the consumers make the goods available to the seller.
According to Article L. 217-10, the goods must be brought into compliance within a reasonable period of time, which cannot exceed thirty days of the consumer’s request, and without major disadvantages for the consumer, taking into account the nature of the goods and the use required by the consumer.
Repair or replacement of non-compliant goods includes, if necessary, the collection and return of the goods and installation of the repaired or replacement goods by the seller.
According to Article L. 217-11, the goods are brought into compliance at no cost for the consumer.

Consumers are not required to pay for normal use of the replaced goods during the period prior to their replacement. According to Article L. 217-12, the seller is not obliged to comply with the consumer’s choice if the requested compliance is impossible or would lead to disproportionate costs, in particular with regard to:
1 The value of the goods if there had been no non-conformity;
2 The extent of the non-conformity; and
3 Whether the other choice is possible without a major disadvantage for the consumer.

The seller can refuse to bring the goods into compliance if it is impossible or leads to disproportionate costs, in particular with regard to points 1 and 2.
If these conditions are not met, after issuing formal notice the consumer can proceed to specific enforcement of the solution initially requested, in accordance with Articles 1221 et seq. of the French Civil Code.
Any refusal by the seller to comply with the consumer’s choice or bring the goods into compliance must be justified in writing or on a durable medium.
According to Article L. 217-13, any goods repaired under the legal guarantee of conformity benefit from a six-month extension to this guarantee.
If the consumer chooses to have the goods repaired, but this is not carried out by the seller, compliance by replacement of the goods results in the consumer receiving a further period of legal guarantee of conformity for the replaced goods. This provision applies from the date the replacement goods are delivered to the consumer.

According to Article L. 217-14, consumers are entitled to a reduction in the price of the goods or cancellation of the contract in the following cases:
1 If the professional refuses to bring the goods into compliance;
2 If compliance takes place more than thirty days after the consumer’s request, or if it causes a major disadvantage for the consumer;
3 If the consumer permanently bears the cost of return or collection of the non-compliant goods, or the cost of installing the repaired or replacement goods or the related costs;
4 If the goods are still non-compliant in spite of the seller’s unsuccessful attempt to bring them into compliance.

Consumers are also entitled to a reduction in the price of the goods or cancellation of the contract if the non-conformity is so serious that it justifies an immediate reduction in the price or cancellation of the contract. Consumers are then not obliged to ask for the repair or replacement of the goods beforehand.
Consumers are not entitled to cancel the sale if the non-conformity is minor, which it is up to the seller to prove. This paragraph does not apply to contracts under which the consumer does not pay a price.

According to Article I. 217-15, in the cases specified in Art. l. 217-14, the consumer must inform the seller of their decision to obtain a reduction in the price of the goods.
The price reduction is proportional to the difference between the value of the delivered goods and the value of the goods without the non-conformity.
According to Article L. 217-16, in the cases specified in Article L. 217-14, consumers must inform the seller of their decision to cancel the contract. Consumers must return the goods to the seller at the seller’s expense. The seller shall repay to the consumer the price paid and return any other benefits received under the contract.
If the non-conformity only concerns some of the goods delivered under the sales contract, the consumer is entitled to cancel the contract for all of the goods, even those not covered by this Section, if the consumer cannot reasonably be expected to agree to keep only the compliant goods.
For the contracts mentioned in Article L. 217-1, II, providing for the sale of goods and, on an ancillary basis, the supply of services not covered by this Section, consumers are entitled to cancel the entire contract.
In addition, in the event of a bundled offer within the meaning of Article l. 224-42-2, consumers are entitled to cancel all of the related contracts. According to Article L. 217-17, repayment to the consumer of the sums owed by the seller under this Sub-section shall be made on receipt of the goods or proof of their return by the consumer and at the latest within the following fourteen days.
The seller shall repay these sums using the same method of payment as that used by the consumer when the contract was concluded, unless the consumer expressly agrees otherwise, and in any case at no extra charge.

– legal guarantee against latent defects for consumers :
According to Article 1641 of the French Civil Code: “The seller is bound by the guarantee against latent defects in the goods sold, that make them unfit for their intended use, or that impair their use to such an extent that the buyer would not have acquired them or would only have paid a lower price, if he had known them”. According to Article 1644 of the French Civil Code: “consumers have the choice of returning the product and obtaining repayment of the price, or keeping the product and obtaining repayment of part of the price, as determined by experts. According to Article 1648 paragraph 1 of the French Civil Code: “Action on the grounds of redhibitory defects must be brought by the buyer within two years of discovery of the defect”.
To assert their rights under the legal guarantee of conformity or against latent defects in the goods sold, consumers must, on pain of losing their rights, return the goods to the seller in a clean and hygienic condition, without stains.

The following are excluded from the guarantee:
1. Use and maintenance that does not comply with the operating instructions supplied with the product, as well as incorrect use (or maintenance) or accidental breakage.
2. Damage due to incorrect handling, connection (whether carried out with the original accessories or with other accessories substituted by the customer), improper or abnormal use, intentional or accidental physical modification, or use for professional or commercial purposes.
3. Spare parts or accessories that are replaced due to usual wear and tear, or routine maintenance operations: bulbs etc.
4. The costs of transport and modification of the device in the event of a recall by the manufacturer due to a serial defect.
5. Damage due to an external event (lightning, water damage, etc.).
6. Interventions carried out on the device by any person not appointed by the After-Sales Service as well as malfunctions and damage resulting from such interventions.

8. Limitation of liability

The information provided on the website, the photographs and product cards, and the prices of products and transport are provided for reference only. HISLE makes every effort to ensure that the information provided on the website is accurate. Any errors that may exist are accidental and will be corrected as soon as possible. HISLE cannot be held liable for simple errors or omissions that may occur despite all the precautions taken when presenting the products. HISLE cannot be held liable in the event of lack of understanding or incorrect translation of this information.
Pursuant to current regulations, HISLE is not liable for non-performance or poor performance of the contract that is attributable to the consumer, to an insurmountable and unforeseeable act by a third party to the contract, or to a force majeure event as defined above in Article 6.
In any case, in the event of damage occurring due to total or partial performance or non-performance of the order by HISLE, HISLE cannot on any account incur liability for consequential damage. In the event of any direct damage, HISLE’s liability is limited to the amount of proven damage. If this limitation is declared inadequate by a judicial body, in particular due to the capacity of the claimant or the circumstances of the case, HISLE’s liability shall in any case be limited to the compensation limits of its insurance policy for the same categories of damage, and the compensation for all damage combined shall be limited to the insurance limits specified for the categories of damage concerned. In any case, all direct damage not covered by HISLE’s insurance policy is excluded.
These provisions also exclude direct damage due to a force majeure event or an act attributable to the customer, for which HISLE cannot be held liable.

9. Withdrawal

In accordance with Articles L.221-18 et seq. of the French Consumer Code and the new European provisions, European consumers have fourteen days from the date of receipt of the order to return the product in its original packaging, at their own expense, for replacement or repayment. Returned products will only be accepted if they have not been unpacked or used, and are returned as good as new. This right of withdrawal does not apply to products that are customised or tailor-made, according to the customer’s instructions or options during confirmation of the order, and need to be tailor-made. These products are not available for immediate delivery and the time required to produce them, ranging from 1 to 8 weeks, is indicated on the website. Specific materials or colours chosen by the customer for the product ordered, as well as associations of colours or specific furniture, are deemed to be orders for customised products that must be tailor-made.

Procedure: consumers must notify HISLE of their wish to withdraw from the contract before the end of the withdrawal period. To do so, they can either send an email to hisle(at)hisle.fr, or send a letter to the following address:
HISLE SAS, Customer Service, 27-29 rue Thiers, 56000 Vannes, France

HISLE will send the consumer a return authorisation number which must be noted clearly near the address label affixed to the parcel. If the consumers fail to inform HISLE beforehand of their wish to withdraw, their parcel will be rejected and returned to them.
Consumers must return the goods to HISLE within fourteen days of notification of their decision to withdraw from the contract. HISLE undertakes to check the condition of the goods on receipt of the returned parcel.

The customer will be repaid within 14 days of the withdrawal date. However, HISLE is entitled to suspend repayment until the product is returned to it by the customer.
If the product is not returned as good as new, its value may be depreciated during repayment of the product. It is up to the consumer to take all necessary steps to ensure that the product is returned in perfect condition. HISLE advises consumers who wish to return a product to take out insurance against any damage that may occur during shipping.
HISLE will repay all amounts received from the consumer, including the delivery charges, unless the customer requested a more expensive delivery method. The refund will be made using the same method of payment used by the consumer when the order was confirmed (unless the consumer expressly agrees to another method of payment and provided that the repayment does not entail costs for the consumer).

10. Processing of personal data

The customer’s personal data are required in order to process and ship orders, and draw up invoices and warranty agreements. Failure to provide information will result in the order not being confirmed. Pursuant to Law No. 2018-493 of 20 June 2018 and Regulation (EU) 2016/679, applicable since 25 May 2018, it is stated that the personal data requested from customers are necessary to process the services and/or orders and that the data are collected and processed solely for the purpose of carrying out the orders and contractual services.
For this reason, the data can only be used by authorised persons employed by HISLE or any authorised processor, involved in carrying out, monitoring and delivering the orders, for the duration of the sale. Any use by a third party for other purpose, or by any person after completion of the sale, constitutes misappropriation of such data, an offence punishable by criminal sanctions.
Similarly, HISLE will give the customers the name and address of its data controller, to enable them to exercise their rights of access to, rectification or erasure of the data concerned, or to data portability, as well as any other rights specified in the above regulations. All of this information can be found in the “Privacy Policy” section of our website.

11. Commitment regarding data protection

According to Article L. 216-5, consumers are informed by provision of these GTCS and by a written document when taking possession of the goods, that they can express reservations, in particular in the event of a defect in the goods or failure to provide the operating or installation instructions.
