Article 8 - Warranty

8.1. Warranty of conformity

All our Products are covered by the legal warranty of conformity and the warranty against hidden defects, as provided for in articles 1641 et seq. of the French Civil Code. In the event of non-conformity of a Product sold, it may be returned, exchanged or reimbursed. All claims, requests for exchange or refund must be made by e-mail (via our contact form) within fifteen (15) days of Delivery. Products must be returned to us in the condition in which the Customer received them, including all accessories, packaging and instructions.

The Site is obliged to deliver a Product that conforms, i.e. that is fit for the use expected of a similar good and corresponds to the description given on This conformity also implies that the Product has the qualities that a buyer may legitimately expect in view of the public statements made by the Site, including in advertising and on labelling.

In this context, the Site is liable for defects in conformity existing at the time of delivery, and for defects in conformity resulting from packaging, assembly instructions or installation when the latter has been made its responsibility or has been carried out under its responsibility.

Any action arising from a lack of conformity shall be barred after two (2) years from the date of delivery of the Product.

In the event of a lack of conformity, the Customer may request the replacement or repair of the Product, at his or her option. However, if the cost of the Customer's choice is manifestly disproportionate to the other possible option, given the value of the Product or the importance of the defect, the Site may proceed with a refund, without following the option chosen by the Customer.

In the event that replacement or repair is impossible, the Site undertakes to refund the price of the Product within 30 days of receipt of the returned Product and in exchange for the return of the Product by the Customer to the following address SARL MISE EN BOUCHE, 10 rue Napoléon, 20200 Bastia.

Finally, the Customer is exempted from proving the existence of the Product's lack of conformity during the six (6) months following delivery of the goods.

It is specified that the present legal warranty of conformity applies independently of the commercial warranty granted, where applicable, on the Products.

8.2. Warranty for hidden defects

The Site is liable for any hidden defects in the Product sold which render it unfit for its intended use, or which so diminish that use that the Customer would not have purchased it, or would have paid a lower price for it, had he been aware of them.

This guarantee allows customers who can prove the existence of a hidden defect to choose between a refund of the price of the Product if it is returned, or a refund of part of its price if the Product is not returned.

In the event that a replacement or repair is impossible, Mise en bouche undertakes to refund the price of the Product within 30 days of receipt of the returned Product and in exchange for the return of the Product by the Customer to the following address SARL MISE EN BOUCHE, 10 rue Napoléon, 20200 Bastia.
