In addition, the Supplier cannot be held responsible if the Buyer cannot decide on a suitable date for delivery or collection;
6.6. The Buyer becomes owner of the Goods only once total payment has been made (cost of the Goods + delivery charges).

6.7. Immediately after the collection of the Goods or their delivery by a third party transporter, it is the Buyer’s responsibility to check thoroughly that neither the packaging nor the Goods have sustained any damage.

If responsibility for the observed damage lies with the Buyer, the Goods will be returned by mail to the original delivery address within 14 days of receipt of postage costs.

Section 8. Guarantee
8.1. Iconikinterior provides a five year guarantee on all of its products covering any manufacturing defects. We undertake to do everything in our power to replace faulty products. However if this is not possible, we reserve the right to reimburse the purchase price to the Buyer.
Section 9. Cancellation and return of Goods by the Consumer
This section covers the additional rights that the Buyer has as Consumer;
9.2. The Consumer also has legal rights which permit him to cancel the Standard Product contract by contacting the Supplier in writing – within 30 working days of collecting the Goods or if later, from the date the Goods were received from the third party transporter. The Consumer will be reimbursed. However this right of cancellation does not apply to made to measure Goods.
9.3. When the Buyer-Consumer exercises their legal right to withdraw from the contract, the Goods must then be returned by the Buyer, at the Buyer’s expense within 30 days of the cancellation. Unfortunately this condition does not apply to professional purchases. The Buyer must take good care of the Goods until they are returned to the Supplier. In the case of a cancellation, the Goods must be returned to the Supplier in their original packaging and we strongly recommend that you insure the Goods before handing them to the third party entrusted with their return to us;
9.4. If a Buyer-Consumer exercises their legal right to withdraw from the contract, they will be reimbursed. This reimbursement will be carried out via the same payment method that was used by the Buyer-Consumer at the time of the purchase;
9.5. If the Buyer-Consumer exercises his legal right to withdraw from the contract but fails to take care of the Goods prior to their return to the Supplier or does not return the Goods to the Supplier in perfect condition and in their original packaging or fails to return all of the Goods to the Supplier; then the Supplier has the right to deduct from the total sum to be reimbursed (cf. clause 8.4) any reasonable amounts to cover the repair or replacement of the Goods or their packaging. This sum is defined by OXYGEN Corp.Ltd. and may amount to 30% of the original purchase price. Our return conditions are available here: www.iconikinterior.com/en/cgv-en/.
9.6. The Buyer-Consumer is entitled to a period of 30 days to exercise their legal cancellation rights. Where the order relates to physical goods, this period is calculated from the time the goods are received. Where the order relates to services, the period is calculated from the time the order is accepted. If the 30 day period ends on a Saturday, Sunday, public holiday or other non-working day, it will be extended to the next working day. The client is under no obligation to justify the cancellation and will not be subject to any financial penalties.
Rules for exercising the right to cancel: when exercising the right to cancel, the client must send back the product in perfect condition (to permit its resale). The return postage costs are the responsibility of the consumer. Exercising the right of cancellation entitles the consumer to a refund of the sums paid during the order process, as soon as possible and no later than 30 days after the request for cancellation. The reimbursement will be made by bank transfer.
9.7. If the client choses to return a product bought as part of a “2 for the price of 1” promotion, the refund will be calculated as a proportion of the total value of the two products bought.
For example, if the most expensive item cost 750€ and the least expensive (therefore the free item) cost 250€, the reimbursement will be calculated as follows: 750 / (750 + 250) x 750=€562.50€.
So, the client has initially paid 750€ but has benefitted from a free product with a value of 250€. With a reimbursement of 526.50€, the balance of 187.50€ will not be refunded, which ultimately amounts to a net discount of 25%.
If the client adds another product to the order during or after the promotional offer, the normal price must be paid and normal procedures for returns will apply. The same formula will apply to all orders for multiple products as part of this offer. For example, where the client has bought 4 items and the two cheapest are free.
Section 10. Liability and Use of the Goods
10.1. The Buyer acknowledges being solely responsible for the use of the Goods supplied and that he will use them legally and exclusively for the purposes for which they are supposed to be used and in conformity with the instructions, advice, suggestions, guides and any other information supplied by the manufacturer. This assumes that the Buyer has read all of the guides and information supplied by the manufacturer, that the Buyer will take all necessary precautions or carry out any required tests prior to utilisation and that the Buyer completely understands these documents. The 5 year guarantee is valid for all products purchased from 5th March 2013. All purchases made before this date are covered by a standard one year guarantee. Please note: the guarantee does not cover wear and tear due to use.
10.2. In addition, the Buyer must not use the Goods in a way that the maker advises against and undertakes to respect all the applicable regulations relating to each Product provided;
10.3 It is the responsibility of the Buyer to ensure that all products are appropriate for the Buyer’s own personal use;
10.4. The Buyer expressly accepts that the effectiveness of any product depends on it being used, stored, checked and periodically maintained in an appropriate manner;

10.6 If the Buyer has provided personal specifications and/or measurements, then their accuracy remains the sole responsibility of the Buyer, who will be held solely responsible for any costs and/or expenses incurred due to the inaccuracy or to problems arising from the specifications and/or measurements supplied.
Section 11. Limitation of Supplier Liability
11.1. Nothing is these General Terms and Conditions of Sale can exclude or limit the liability of the Supplier in cases of death or personal injury resulting from the negligence of the Supplier, his employees or agents, or for any liability which cannot be limited or excluded by law;
11.2 The Supplier will never be held responsible for any indirect or consequential loss;
11.3. The Supplier will never be held responsible for any failure to deliver to the Delivery Address on the agreed date;
11.4. In cases of contravention of one of these General Terms and Conditions of Sale by the Supplier – other than the provisions associated with the law when the Buyer acts as the Consumer – the reimbursement to the Buyer is limited to the damage caused and will in no circumstances be greater than the purchase price of the Goods.
Section 12. Waiver
In accordance with the application of the Supplier’s rights (as set out in the contract) no waiver, tacit or explicit, can change the rights of the Supplier to do this again in the future.
Section 13. Request for of archived sales contracts
The contracts for sales carried out on our internet site (information relating to the Buyer’s order and the Terms and Conditions of sale in force on the day or the order) are archived for a period of 10 years. The Buyer can request a copy by electronic e-mail at email@example.com or by post to the address: OXYGEN Corp. Ltd. 124 Cromwell Road, KENSINGTON, London SW7 4ET.
Section 14. Force Majeure
The Supplier cannot, under any circumstances, be held responsible for delays or failures in the execution of his obligations if they result from events or circumstances beyond his control, such as natural disasters, accidents, wars, fires, strikes, evictions, disruptions to communication channels including telecommunications and computer networks, unavailability of facilities and equipment or shortages or unavailability of naturally occurring raw materials. The Supplier may therefore be allowed a reasonable amount of additional time to respond to the Buyer’s needs.
15. Errors and Indemnities
Each clause or part of these General Terms and Conditions of Sale must be considered independently of all others. This means that if a clause or part is judged to be inapplicable or invalid, the remainder of the General Terms and Conditions will not be affected.
