Products sold on the Website, including leather goods, often have characteristics specific to the natural materials used in their manufacture. Because each skin is unique, the products can reveal variations in hue or texture. These variations cannot be considered defects or incur the Seller's liability.

Similarly, the Seller cannot be held responsible for problems related to the natural evolution of leather (discoloration, color transfer, tasks, etc.).

ARTICLE 9 - Computer Science and Freedoms

Under Law 78-17 of January 6, 1978, it is recalled that the personal data that is requested from the Customer is necessary for the processing of his order and the establishment of invoices, among other things.

ARTICLE 10 - Intellectual property

The content of the Website is the property of the Seller and its partners and is protected by French and international intellectual property laws.

Any full or partial reproduction of this content is strictly prohibited and is likely to constitute a crime of counterfeiting.

In addition, the Seller remains the owner of all intellectual property rights on photographs, presentations, studies, designs, prototypes, etc., made (even at the customer's request) for the provision of Services and Products to the Customer.

The Client therefore prohibits any reproduction or exploitation of these studies, designs, models and prototypes, etc., without the express, written and prior permission of the Seller who may condition it on a financial consideration.

ARTICLE 11 - Unreview

In the event of a change in unforeseen circumstances at the conclusion of the contract, in accordance with the provisions of section 1195 of the Civil Code, the Party that has not agreed to assume an excessively onerous performance risk may request a renegotiation of the contract to its co-contractor.

ARTICLE 12 - Forced execution in kind

In the event of a breach of its obligations by either Party, the Party affected by the default has the right to request the enforcement in kind of the obligations arising from these.

In accordance with the provisions of Article 1221 of the Civil Code, the creditor of the obligation may continue this enforced execution after a simple formal notice, addressed to the debtor of the obligation by letter recommended with acknowledgement that has not been unsuccessful, unless it proves impossible or if there is a clear disproportion between its cost to the debtor and its interest in the creditor.

ARTICLE 13 - Exception of non-performance

It is recalled that under Article 1219 of the Civil Code, each Party may refuse to carry out its obligation, even though it is due, if the other Party does not carry out its obligation and if the breach is serious enough, that is, likely to call into question the continuation of the contract or fundamentally upset its economic balance.

The suspension of execution will take effect immediately, upon receipt by the Failing Party of the notice of default that has been sent to it for this purpose by the Party victim of the failure indicating the intention to apply the exception of non-performance until the defaulting Party has corrected the breach found, served by letter recommended with request for notice of receipt or on any other lasting written medium to spare proof of the mail.

This exception of non-performance may also be used as a preventive measure, in accordance with the provisions of Article 1220 of the Civil Code, if it is clear that one of the Parties will not carry out its obligations at maturity and that the consequences of this breach are serious enough for the Party affected by the failure.This faculty is used at the peril of the Party that takes the initiative.

The suspension of execution will take effect immediately, upon receipt by the alleged failing Party of the notification of the intention to apply the preventive non-performance exception until the alleged defaulting Party performs the obligation for which an upcoming breach is manifest, served by recommended letter with request for notice of receipt or on any other written durable medium to spare proof of the shipment.

If the impediment were final or lasted beyond two months, these would be resolved outright under the terms of Article 15-2 "Resolution for a Party's breach of its obligations."

ARTICLE 14 - Force majeure

Parties may not be held liable if the non-performance or delay in the performance of any of their obligations, as described here, is the result of a case of force majeure or the fact that a third party is not under the responsibility or control of one of the Parties.

Any irresistible facts or circumstances outside the Parties, unpredictable, inevitable, beyond the will of the Parties and which cannot be prevented by the Parties, despite all reasonably possible efforts, will be considered as a case of force majeure.

Expressly, are considered as cases of force majeure or fortuitous cases, in addition to those usually retained by the jurisprudence of French courts and tribunals:the blocking of means of transport or supplies, strike, lockout or other measures claims, storms, natural disasters, stopping telecommunications networks, terrorist attack, war, nuclear incident.

The Party noting the event must immediately inform the other Party of its inability to carry out its obligations and justify it to the other Party.

The suspension of the obligations cannot in any way be a cause of liability for non-performance of the obligation in question, nor induce the payment of damages or late penalties.

The performance of the obligation is suspended for the duration of the force majeure if it is temporary and does not exceed a period of 60 days.

Therefore, as soon as the cause of the suspension of their reciprocal obligations disappears, the Parties will make every effort to resume the normal performance of their contractual obligations as soon as possible.

To this end, the Prevented Party will notify the other of the resumption of its obligation by recommended letter with request for notice of receipt or any extrajudicial act.

If the impediment is final or exceeds 60 days, these will be resolved purely and simply in accordance with the terms defined in Article 14 "Resolution for Force majeure" unless the Seller and Customer agree to extend the period.

During this suspension, the Parties agree that the potential costs incurred by the situation will be halved.

ARTICLE 15 - Contract Resolution

15-1 - Resolution for unpredcing

The resolution for the impossibility of the performance of an excessively onerous obligation may not, despite the following clause, "Resolution for a Party's failure to its obligations" or obligations, take place until 30 days after receiving a notice declaring the intention to apply this notified clause by recommended letter with request for notice of receipt or any extrajudicial act.

15-2 - Resolution for failure of a Party to its or its obligations

If any of the Parties fail to comply with their obligations, it may be resolved at the discretion of the aggrieved Party.

It is expressly understood that this resolution for a Party's breach of its obligations will take place as of right 30 days after the sending of a notice to be executed, which has remained, in whole or in part, ineffective.

The formal notice may be notified by recommended letter with request for notice of receipt or any extrajudicial acts.

This formal notice should mention the intention to apply this clause.

15-3 - Common provisions for resolution cases
