The seller reserves the right to change these conditions of sale at any time. However, these changes shall not apply to bookings and orders previously accepted and confirmed by the buyer.
Users may save or print these general conditions of sale, provided that they are not changed.
Users state that they have no intention of reselling the products purchased. Resellers interested in the products distributed by Groix & Nature are asked to contact us.

Photographs featuring products are only suggestions of product presentation. They may not be used without the prior consent of our company which owns the rights.
Any promotional offer is only valid within the validity time limit of the relevant offer.
The prices quoted are ex-works prices in euros including all taxes and VAT, and are subject to change during the year.
They do not include shipping costs, which are charged on top of the purchased products, depending on the weight and the geographical area to which the order is to be sent. Shipping charges will be shown after the buyer has registered the order, at the payment stage.
The products ordered are billed at the price charged at the time the order is registered.
All orders imply the full and unreserved acceptance of these general conditions of sale. Before orders are confirmed, buyers are required to state their acceptance of these general conditions of sale by ticking the corresponding "I accept" box.
Once orders are registered, a detailed acknowledgement of receipt is sent to buyers, at the e-mail address they indicated. This acknowledgement of receipt will specify the exact amount charged and the order terms of delivery, and implies acceptance of the order and approval of the transaction.
The seller does not accept any liability for any error made in the wording of an order by the buyer.
All orders are payable in euros on the date the order is placed.
The buyer is required to pay by one of the credit cards accepted on the website: Visa, Master Card or Carte Bleue.
The Credit Agricole Group provides you with secure payment on a secure server: your bank account details do not pass through our server. The order will be considered effective upon payment confirmation by banking centres.
The seller reserves the right to suspend or cancel any order in the event of non-payment of any sum owed by the buyer or for any legitimate reason such as a previous dispute relating to a payment or delivery.
The products are delivered by Colissimo and their Swiss or Europeans partners to the address indicated by the buyer on the order form. The buyer agrees to examine the whole package and refuse it if it is damaged and state the reason for the refusal in the documents certifying its delivery. Any subsequent complaint about the consignment's conformity (types of products, quantities delivered) or quality must be mentioned on the return form, within a period of 7 (seven) days from the date the customer signed for the consignment.
In the case of a damaged package, the order will be returned free of charge to the customer upon receipt of the damaged package.
In the event of a dispute relating to the delivery's conformity after its acceptance, the recipient must take all the steps required to allow the seller, its agents or assignees to establish contradictory findings, including keeping the goods intact and sending them back to us at your own expense for inspection.
If we acknowledge a conformity defect or flaw in the goods sold by us, our liability shall be limited to refunding or replacing the goods, and refunding your shipping charges for returning of the goods, to the exclusion of damages or penalties.
Delivery shall be made within a maximum period of 15 (fifteen) days in mainland France, thirty (30) days for the French overseas departments and territories, and the other countries of Europe and Switzerland, from the approval of the order by the Bank and according to the delivery method chosen.
Depending on the availability of products, and for logistic reasons, several packages may be delivered to customers for a given order at a given address. Customers will then only pay for one delivery. If customers want the second parcel to another place of delivery, they will then have to pay for this transport themselves.
Customs duties, including any import taxes or excise taxes that may be payable, shall in all cases be borne by the recipient and shall not give rise to any claim or request for compensation made to the seller. If a consignment is retained by a customs department, the seller declines any liability for the delay caused.
