ARTICLE 1 - PURPOSE
These GTC express the entirety of the conditions applicable to sales transactions on the Site, from which products manufactured by Ekceli are marketed.
These GTC, and all sales made on the Site, are concluded between a natural or legal person wishing to make a purchase for his or her own personal use, via the Site, and Ekceli.
These GTC apply to the exclusion of all other conditions, and in particular those applicable to sales in shops or through other distribution and marketing channels.
They are accessible on the Site and shall prevail, if necessary, over any other version or any other contradictory document.
The Buyer declares that he/she has read the GTC and has accepted them as soon as he/she has validated his/her order on the Site by clicking. Acceptance of the GTCs assumes that the Buyer is of legal age and has the legal capacity to do so, or, failing that, that he/she obtains the authorisation of a guardian or curator if he/she is incapable.
ARTICLE 2 - PRODUCTS2.1 Presentation and description of the Products
For the purposes of these GTC, "Products" (in the singular and plural) refers to the textile and embroidery creations prepared by Ekceli and available for sale on the Site. The Products are described and presented on the Site as accurately as possible. However, Ekceli shall not be held liable for any errors or omissions in this presentation. The photographs or graphic representations of the Products available on the Site are not contractual. The Products comply with the French regulations in force. In case of questions about the Products, the Buyer may contact the Seller (firstname.lastname@example.org - +33699002067).
2.2 Product availability
2.2.1. The Products are offered within the limits of the stocks available at the time the Buyer places the order. A Product that has become unavailable is indicated as such. It is specified that Ekceli shall make every effort to ensure the availability of the entire range of Products offered. At any time, Ekceli reserves the right to modify or no longer market the Products offered on the Site. However, such modifications shall not affect orders accepted by Ekceli prior to the entry into force of such modifications.
2.2.2. In the event of unavailability of the Product ordered, the Buyer shall be informed within eight (8) working days and shall have the option of cancelling the order. The Buyer will then have the choice of requesting either a refund of the sums paid within fourteen (14) working days following the Buyer's information, or an exchange of the Product within the limits of available stocks.
ARTICLE 3 - ORDERING
The Buyer may place an order online, from the photographs available online and using the purchase process in force, for any Product, subject to availability. In order for the order to be validated, the Buyer must accept, by clicking where indicated, the present GTC. He/she must also choose the address and the delivery method for the Products, and finally validate the payment method.
The sale will be considered final :
● after Ekceli has sent the Buyer confirmation of acceptance of the order by e-mail ;
● and after Ekceli has received the full price of the Product.
Any order implies acceptance of the prices and description of the Products available for sale.
Ekceli shall provide the Buyer with an order confirmation summarising the essential characteristics of the Product purchased or, with the Buyer's consent, on another durable medium.
In certain cases, such as non-payment, incorrect address, or other problems with the Buyer's account, Ekceli reserves the right to block the Buyer's order until the problem is resolved.
ARTICLE 4 - ACCESS TO THE SITE AND CREATION OF AN ACCOUNT
Placing orders on the Site requires the creation of an account (hereinafter "the Account"), access to which is conditioned by the use of a personal identifier and password (hereinafter "the Identifiers") placed under the exclusive control of the Buyer and which enables him/her to access the payment interface. The Buyer wishing to create an Account is invited to enter an e-mail address to which a message is immediately sent to confirm it and allow the creation of an Account. The Buyer will be asked to choose a password. Where applicable, the password guarantees the confidentiality of the information contained in the Account. The Buyer shall therefore refrain from transmitting or communicating it to a third party. Otherwise, Ekceli shall not be held responsible for unauthorised access to a Buyer's Account. The Buyer undertakes to immediately inform Ekceli if a third party becomes aware of its identifiers and to take immediate and effective measures, such as changing the password. Ekceli shall not be held liable for any fraudulent use of a Buyer's Account. All costs related to access, whether hardware, software or Internet access, shall be borne exclusively by the Buyer, who is solely responsible for the proper functioning of his or her computer equipment and Internet access.
The Site is accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
However, Ekceli reserves the right, without prior notice or compensation, to temporarily or permanently close the Site, in particular to carry out updates, maintenance operations, modifications or changes to operational methods, servers and accessibility times, without this list being exhaustive.
Consequently, Ekceli shall not be liable for any damages of any kind that may result from such changes and/or temporary unavailability or permanent closure of all or part of the Site or its associated services.
It shall be the responsibility of the Buyer to ensure that the computer and transmission resources at its disposal are able to adapt to changes in the Site.
Ekceli shall endeavour to implement all necessary means to keep the Site accessible to the Purchasers.
ARTICLE 5 - PRICES AND PAYMENT TERMS
5.1 Ekceli reserves the right to modify its prices at any time, but undertakes to apply the prices in force at the time the Buyer places the order, subject to the availability of the Product on that date. Prices are indicated in euros and net of VAT. They do not take into account delivery costs, which are invoiced in addition and indicated before the order is validated. The payment of the totality of the price must be made at the time of the order. At no time may the sums paid be considered as a deposit or advance payment.
If one or more taxes or contributions are created or modified, either upwards or downwards, this change may be reflected in the sale price of the Products.
5.2 This is an order with a payment obligation, which means that placing the order implies payment by the Buyer. To pay for the order, the Buyer may choose from among the payment methods made available by Ekceli and listed on the Site. In the event of payment by credit card, the communication of the number shall constitute authorisation to debit the bank account. However, this information is not kept by the Seller. Payment of the price is made in cash at the time of ordering and in euros. Bank charges incurred by the payment shall be borne by the Buyer. Payments made by the Buyer shall not be considered final until the amounts due to Ekceli have been effectively collected. In the event of non-payment of the order by the Buyer within eight (8) working days, the Buyer shall be notified by e-mail of the cancellation of the order.
ARTICLE 6 - DELIVERY OF PRODUCTS
6.1 Concerning the Products
Delivery means the transfer to the Buyer of physical possession or control of the Product by the carrier to whom Ekceli has entrusted the Product for delivery. Delivery shall be made only after confirmation of payment by Ekceli's banking institution. The Products ordered shall be delivered in the following manner :
● For metropolitan France, the maximum delivery time is thirty (30) working days from the date of the order of the Product, unless a specific stipulation is indicated before the order is placed as well as prior to the final validation of the order. In this case, Ekceli shall provide the Buyer with an estimated delivery range, and the Seller shall not be held responsible for any delay in delivery. This period shall be indicated in the order summary and in the delivery tracking section of the Site.
● For delivery outside metropolitan France, the Buyer is invited to contact Ekceli's customer service (email@example.com +33699002067).
The Products are delivered to the address indicated by the Buyer during the purchase process on the Site, the Buyer shall ensure its accuracy and provide all information necessary for the proper delivery of the Products. Any package returned to Ekceli because of an incorrect or incomplete delivery address shall be reshipped at the Buyer's expense. The Purchaser may, at his/her request, obtain an invoice sent to the billing address and not to the delivery address, by validating the option provided for this purpose on the order form. If the Buyer is absent on the day of delivery, the carrier will leave a notice of passage in the letterbox, which will allow the Buyer to collect the parcel at the place and during the time indicated. The Buyer must check the delivery and in particular the condition of the Products, which will be considered as having been carried out once the Buyer, or a person authorised by him, has signed the delivery note. If at the time of delivery, the original packaging is damaged, torn or open, the Buyer must check the condition of the Products. If they have been damaged, the Buyer must refuse the parcel and note a reservation on the delivery slip (parcel refused because opened or damaged). The Buyer must confirm these reservations to the carrier by registered mail within three (3) days of receiving the item(s) and send a copy of this letter by regular mail or e-mail to Ekceli for the attention of the customer service department at the address indicated above. Subject to the prior agreement of the customer service department requested at the latest five (5) days before and by appointment, the Buyer may also come and pick up the Products purchased directly at Ekceli's premises, located at 15 rue Michelet 93100 Montreuil. In the event of delivery problems, the Buyer may contact the Seller: firstname.lastname@example.org +33699002067.
ARTICLE 7 - RIGHT OF WITHDRAWAL
In accordance with the provisions of the Consumer Code, if the Purchaser is a private individual not acting for professional purposes (i.e., a consumer as defined in the preliminary article of the Consumer Code), the Purchaser has a period of fourteen (14) working days from the date of validation of the order to exercise his/her right of withdrawal. In order to exercise the right of withdrawal, the Buyer must notify Ekceli of his/her decision to withdraw before the expiry of the withdrawal period, by sending the withdrawal form or any other unambiguous statement expressing his/her wish to withdraw :

The refund shall be made within fourteen (14) days from the date on which Ekceli's customer service was informed of the Buyer's decision to withdraw under the above-mentioned conditions. Ekceli shall make this refund using the same means of payment as the one used by the Buyer for the initial transaction, unless the Buyer expressly agrees to use another means of payment and insofar as the refund does not incur any costs for the Buyer.
No right of withdrawal shall be granted to professional Buyers.

If the Buyer fails to do so within this additional period, it may freely terminate the contract. The Buyer shall complete these successive formalities by registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt or in writing on another durable medium. The contract shall be deemed terminated upon receipt by Ekceli of the letter or writing informing it of such termination, unless Ekceli has performed in the meantime. If the contract is terminated, Ekceli shall reimburse the Buyer for all amounts paid.
ARTICLE 9 - OWNERSHIP AND TRANSFER OF RISK
Ownership of the Product ordered shall pass to the Buyer upon acceptance of the order by Ekceli and receipt of the full price of the Product.
