The prices of the SERVICES and of the PRODUCTS are always shown excluding any potential delivery or transport fees and do not include duty, taxes (including VAT when it is due) and fees of any nature to permit the delivery and the use by the BUYER of the PRODUCTS and/or SERVICES, the entirety of these fees, duty, and taxes are the responsibility of the BUYER, in order for EQUISENSE to receive a net sales price.

The potential delivery and transport fees are mentioned before confirming the order and are billed in addition unless otherwise stated at this time by EQUISENSE.
This indication can take the shape of, including but not limited to, a discount coupon, a gift card, or a special offer.
The BUYER will be able to look at the details of his or her cart by clicking on the icon "Cart". He or she may then include any discount coupons and gift cards that he or she has available, in accordance to the terms and conditions of these coupons and gift cards, in order for the indicated total price to take them into account.
4.2. NECESSARY INFORMATION FOR THE ORDER AND THE DELIVERY

The BUYER, once his or her cart is complete and his or her identification made, will see offered, the choice for different delivery methods, invoiced at the price indicated for the entirety of the PRODUCTS and SERVICES that make up his or her cart.
Unless otherwise expressly indicated, discount coupons and gift cards do not apply to the delivery fees.

This summary will additionally include the price of the order, the shipment rate chosen by the BUYER, the total indicating the price to effectively pay within the framework of the order. It is brought to the attention of the BUYER that this price does not include custom fees and may not include the entirety of taxes that he or she may potentially be required to pay in accordance with the applicable legislation.
The BUYER must click on "Pay" in order to confirm and finalize his or her order. An order number is then communicated to him or her.
As long as he or she has not clicked on this button, the BUYER retains the possibility to make changes, modify the information relating to the order, its contents, and delivery method (notably the billing and/or delivery address and the delivery method).
The order confirmation leads to the conclusion of a contract between the BUYER & EQUISENSE. Through this contract, the BUYER declares and acknowledges that he or she accepts without reservation:
- the offer presented by EQUISENSE on the SITE and/or SERVICES
- the present Terms and Conditions

4.4. PAYMENT OBLIGATION & COMBATING FRAUD

It is notably possible to pay for his or her order with:
- debit and/or credit card. The transactions are carried out by means of payment platforms allowing for the collection of payments particularly with MasterCard, Visa Inc., Discover, and American Express cards.

6. LATE & FAILED DELIVERY
6.1. FAILED DELIVERY
The BUYER may, without prejudice of the other rights which he or she possesses in his or her capacity as a customer and buyer, see him or herself claimed the fees necessary for a new delivery in the event of the return of an order on account of the impossibility to deliver that is not attributable to EQUISENSE or the carrier in charge of carrying out the delivery.

7. WITHDRAWAL OPTION
7.1. RIGHT OF WITHDRAWAL FOR THE PRODUCTS
In compliance with the Law, EQUISENSE accords to the BUYER, when he or she qualifies as a consumer under the meaning of French law, a right of withdrawal which can be exercised by simple demand using the form appearing below, or by formulating a simple demand by email to the address firstname.lastname@example.org. This right of withdrawal has a total duration of thirty (30) days starting:
- on the order date of the PRODUCT(S)
- upon receiving the PRODUCT(S) as far as pre-orders are concerned
The aforementioned duration of 30 (thirty) days includes the duration of legal withdrawal of 14 days imposed by the French Consumer Code and does not add on to the latter.

Name of customer(s):

Signature(s) of customer(s) (only in the event of notification on paper of this present form)

Any PRODUCT not bought by means of the SITE or of EQUISENSE SERVICES cannot benefit from the present option to withdrawal.
7.2. RIGHT OF WITHDRAWAL FOR SERVICES AND SUBSCRIPTIONS
If the BUYER's order is for a subscription relating to a SERVICE, the BUYER acknowledges to have expressly asked EQUISENSE that this SERVICE be carried out as soon as possible.
As a consequence of this, the BUYER is not able to benefit from his or her right to withdrawal if the SERVICE has been fully executed before the statutory time limit of withdrawal, in accordance with article L.121-21-8 of the French Consumer Code.
By signing up for a subscription, the BUYER completes only one order that obliges him or her to pay the entire sum related to the duration of his or her subscription.
Without prejudice to the rights that the Law guarantees to the BUYER, the present withdrawal option will not be applicable, in accordance with article L.121-21-8 of the French Consumer Code:
- For orders of digital content not supplied on a tangible medium of which the execution started after the prior and express agreement of the BUYER and an express renouncement of his or her right of withdrawal,
- When the BUYER has unsealed and used a PRODUCT and or its accessories in such a way that their return is not possible for hygienic reasons.
When the BUYER does not qualify as the consumer under the meaning of the Law, the present withdrawal option will no longer be applicable:
- For online services,

Moreover, EQUISENSE will not have to comply with the BUYER's right of withdrawal, in accordance with article L.121-21-3 of the FRENCH Consumer Code:
- In the event of a use not conforming to the normal use of the PRODUCT provoking its depreciation,
- In the event that the returned PRODUCT does not correspond to the object of the present withdrawal or in the event of restitution beyond the statutory time limit of fourteen days following the communication by the BUYER of his or her decision to withdraw, unless EQUISENSE proposed to the BUYER to collect these goods itself.
8. MODIFICATION OF THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Any modification of the present terms and conditions will be conditional on prior written information and on any durable medium and the express acceptance by the BUYER who has the option to cancel the contract at any time.
These modifications will therefore only be able to come into effect at the time in which a new contractual period starts owing to automatic renewal, and preceded by express acceptance of these modifications by the BUYER or by a new order, posterior to these modifications coming into effect and expressly accepted by the BUYER at the time of the conclusion of the contract.
9. PROVISIONS SPECIFIC TO PRE-ORDER OFFERS
EQUISENSE will on occasion be brought to allow the BUYER to order certain PRODUCTS and/or SERVICES in advance of their release date. By these means, EQUISENSE wishes to allow the BUYER to be among the first to order EQUISENSE PRODUCTS and SERVICES.
When EQUISENSE allows the BUYER to pre-order a PRODUCT and/or SERVICE, EQUISENSE commits to sending it to the BUYER as a priority, except if EQUISENSE does not succeed in debiting the price by means of the payment method that the BUYER has chosen.
By signing up for a pre-order, the BUYER authorizes EQUISENSE to debit the price of the PRODUCT and/or SERVICE from his or her account.
If it appears that EQUISENSE can no longer debit the price by means of the payment method that the BUYER has chosen, EQUISENSE will keep the PRODUCT and/or SERVICE to the side for the BUYER, for a time period that EQUISENSE will indicate to the latter in emails informing him or her of this situation.
By failing to proceed to an effective payment in the time indicated in the emails informing the BUYER of this situation, EQUISENSE will be obliged to cancel this pre-order. The BUYER will thus only be able to order the PRODUCT and/or SERVICE on the release date or by means of another pre-order offer.
By carrying out a pre-order, the BUYER benefits from and comes under the entirety of the rights and obligations included in the present terms and conditions.
10. DISPOSITIONS SPECIFIC TO OFFERS WITH A SUBSCRIPTION
Certain SUBSEQUENT SERVICES can be offered to the BUYER by means of a subscription which commits him or her, where necessary, for a determined period of time, specified in the order, and obliges him or her to pay the sum relating to the duration of the subscription.
The BUYER declares and acknowledges, in the event of a subscription to a SUBSEQUENT SERVICE, to have expressly asked that this SERVICE be executed as soon as possible, and consequently is not able to benefit from his or her right of withdrawal if the service has been fully executed.
In virtue of the present terms and conditions, the contract for a subscription to one or several SERVICE(S) is concluded for an initial contractual period of 12 months.
In order for the BUYER not to lose inopportunely the benefits of the subscription to which he or she signed up, his or her subscription will automatically be renewed for the same duration as the initial subscription after the expiration of the initial contractual period.
This automatic renewal will be invoiced at the price applicable the day of the subscription renewal of which the BUYER will have received prior information and, by him or her failing to terminate the contract, signified on the SITE or a SERVICE, at least 30 days before the expiration of the contractual period, previously notified by EQUISENSE, and with no cancellation penalty and no right to compensation.
However, it remains possible for the BUYER at the end of the initial contractual period to cancel this subscription at any time and without notice. Nevertheless, for subscriptions concerning a SUBSEQUENT SERVICE for a given period, it will be considered that any month started must be paid.
The BUYER will be notified at the earliest 3 months and at the latest 1 month, by email sent to the email address that he or she supplied at the time of the initial subscription, of the expiration of the initial contractual period and of the automatic renewal. He or she will be able to communicate his or her wish not to benefit from this automatic renewal at this time.
11. AFTER-SALES SERVICE
EQUISENSE offers the BUYER an after-sales service that he or she can contact by means of an online form or by an email to the following address: email@example.com
The BUYER declares and guarantees to have taken note that, including but not limited to, browsing the SITE, the creation of a personal account, the identification, the fact to have placed an order allows EQUISENSE to obtain certain personal DATA.
The collection of DATA and its use in accordance with the present terms and conditions is subject to the BUYER's consent.
The processing of stored DATA in accordance with the present terms and conditions was subject to a French CNIL (Commission Nationale Informatique et Libertés - the French Data Protection Authority) declaration number 1923841.
In compliance with the French Informatique et Libertés Law of January 6, 1978 modified, the BUYER benefits from a right of access and rectification of the information concerning him or her at any time by addressing firstname.lastname@example.org.
The BUYER will notably be able to have access at any time to the written materials relating to any electronic order of an amount higher than one hundred twenty (120) euros stored by EQUISENSE for a duration of ten years from the delivery/execution of the service, in accordance with article L 134-2 of the French Consumer Code.
The BUYER will also be able to, for legitimate reasons, be opposed to data processing concerning him or her.
Within the framework of the present article 12, the term DATA includes Sensitive Data outlined in article 8 of the French law number 78-17 modified called "Informatique et liberté", and Personal Data.
12.1. OWNERSHIP OF DATA
The BUYER is the only holder of rights of the DATA processed as part of the SERVICES.
The BUYER grants, as may be necessary to EQUISENSE and its possible subcontractors and assignees a non exclusive and international license, free and transferable allowing it to host, to cache, to copy, and to display the aforementioned DATA solely for the execution of SERVICES and exclusively in association or on the occasion of these.
The present license will automatically expire at the end of this present Contract, unless it is necessary to continue to host the DATA and its processing, notably as a part of recovery operations, or to respond to potential legal obligations for data storage.
The BUYER declares and guarantees that he or she has all the necessary authorizations for the use of DATA as part of the SERVICES and that he or she can freely grant license to, as in the aforementioned terms to EQUISENSE, its subcontractors, and its assignees.

The BUYER agrees to compensate EQUISENSE for any monetary consequences that EQUISENSE may be led to support on account of negligence of the BUYER in respect to the aforementioned guarantees concerning DATA.
12.2. DATA ACCESS
The BUYER is informed and accepts that EQUISENSE can access his or her DATA and transmit it upon the demand of an administrative or judicial authority authorized to access DATA.

When the legislation under which the BUYER is subjected demands the receipt of prior authorization of the people whose Personal Data is processed, or that the aforesaid legislation requires the person called upon to process this Personal Data to adhere to obligations, it falls solely to the BUYER, and under his or her sole responsibility, to comply with the applicable laws and to obtain the possible prior authorizations.
When the DATA transfer is not through a network controlled by EQUISENSE, the BUYER acknowledges that EQUISENSE has no control over the DATA transfer via the public telecommunication networks used by the BUYER to access SERVICES and notably the internet.
The BUYER acknowledges and accepts that EQUISENSE cannot guarantee the confidentiality of DATA during a transfer over the aforementioned public networks. Consequently, EQUISENSE will not be able to, in any event, see its responsibility engaged particularly in the event of DATA misappropriation, capture, corruption, or any other event susceptible to affect these, arising at the occasion of its transfer over public telecommunication networks.
13.1. GUARANTEES APPLICABLE TO MATERIALS SOLD BY EQUISENSE
EQUISENSE guarantees that the material supplied to the BUYER is free of all defects, in accordance with articles 1641 and following of the French Civil Code.

A design defect is not a hidden defect and the BUYER is considered to have received all the technical information relating to said material.
If the hidden defect is present, EQUISENSE will proceed in the 30 (thirty) days following the information, at the choice of the BUYER, if he or she qualifies as the consumer under the meaning of the law, in the replacement and/or repair of the material or the defective parts in accordance with article 1644 of the French Civil Code, without the BUYER being able to claim damages, for any reason whatsoever.

This time period is brought to twenty-four months in regard to products delivered from March 18, 2016.
The legal warranty of conformity applies independently of the commercial warranty offered by the seller.
EQUISENSE draws the BUYER's attention to the fact that malfunctions from falls and/or crushing of the sensors are expressly excluded from the present warranty.
EQUISENSE's responsibility will also not be able to be sought for any deteriorations and damages originating from the normal wear and tear or from causes outside of the material's intrinsic qualities, such as those resulting from an abnormal use or owing to the BUYER, to the animal of which he, she, or the actual USER has the control or of his or her employees: loading, shocks, falling or incorrect operation, insufficient protection against humidity, heat, frost, effect of power surges and transport atmosphere, non-compliant handling or assembly, when these were carried out by the BUYER or third party.

It is not guaranteed that the SERVICES' features satisfy the demands of the BUYER.
The BUYER acknowledges that he or she is informed that a SERVICE can contain errors and that all errors are not economically rectifiable or that it is not always necessary to correct them. Consequently, EQUISENSE does not guarantee that the entirety of the SERVICES's faults or errors will be corrected.
EQUISENSE will not, in any event, be able to be held responsible for direct or indirect damages endured by the BUYER, which could arise owing to or at the occasion of the execution of the present Contract and of its results. By indirect damages, one notably means, included but not limited to this list, the loss of earnings or profits, opportunity loss, commercial damages, the consequences of complaints or claims against the BUYER, notwithstanding the fact that EQUISENSE would have quickly warned of the eventuality of their occurrence.
In any case, EQUISENSE's responsibility, in the event of damages happening to the BUYER, for any reason and regardless of the legal grounds invoked or retained, any and all accumulated damages, will be expressly limited and will not in any case exceed the amount excluding tax collected by EQUISENSE over the contractual period currently executed by the present contract.
EQUISENSE's responsibility will not in any instance be sought after notably in the event:

15. ACCORDANCE WITH LAWS AND REGULATIONS
EQUISENSE will comply with legal and regulatory obligations, which are applicable to it in its capacity as a service provider and in accordance with the law applicable to the contract. EQUISENSE is not bound to assume the legal and administrative obligations of the BUYER, including those related to the SERVICES supplied as a part of the Contract. It is therefore up to the BUYER to ensure respect for the laws and regulations concerning him or her, without the possibility of seeking out the responsibility of EQUISENSE.
The BUYER, for his or her part, also agrees to comply with the laws in effect to which he or she is subjected, either owing to his or her nationality, or owing to his or her geographical location. He or she will notably make sure to respect the applicable provisions relating to the content of the DATA (French Informatique et Libertés law) so that no unlawful processing may be carried out by EQUISENSE.
16. MISCELLANEOUS PROVISIONS

The fact for one party to not demand the application of any provision of the present contract or to tolerate the non-compliance temporarily or permanently, will in no instance be able to be interpreted as a renunciation by this party to carry out the rights that he or she possesses in accordance with the present terms and conditions.
The fact for one party to tolerate the non-compliance or an incomplete execution of the contract or more generally to tolerate any act, abstention, or omission of the other party non-compliant with the provisions of the present contract will not be able to confer any right to the party who benefits from such a tolerance.
The present terms and conditions express the entirety of the parties' agreement and replace any anterior agreement, written or oral, explicit and implicit. It establishes the will of the concerned parties.
The parties acknowledge that they act as independent contracting parties. The present contract cannot lead to creating a company or association of any form between them.
EQUISENSE reserves the possibility to cede all or a part of the rights and obligations resulting from the present contract to a company or to a third party.
17. APPLICABLE LAW AND ASSIGNMENT OF JURISDICTION
The present contract is exclusively subject to French law.
The parties agree to search for an amicable solution to any disagreement which may arise from the interpretation or from the execution of the Contract. The BUYER, if he or she qualifies as the consumer under the law, agrees, in the event of a disagreement, to directly present a complaint to EQUISENSE beforehand.
If the parties do not manage to obtain an amicable solution or through mediation, any litigation relating notably to the formation, the validity, the interpretation, the execution or breach of the present contract and, more generally, to the relationship binding the parties, comes under the exclusive competence of the jurisdiction of French Courts.
