In the event of refusal by the bank, the order will be automatically cancelled and the Customer will be informed by e-mail or via the Customer Relations Department.
As part of the fight against Internet fraud, information relating to orders is controlled by the payment partner designated by ALPHASCIENCE: Paypal, a secure payment operator. This company is responsible for the storage and automated processing of information relating to each order, including credit card details, in a secure environment.
ALPHASCIENCE invites the Customer to print the order summary. Data relating to orders will be recorded and stored in the computer systems of SHOPIFY, ALPHASCIENCE's hosting company.
The information registers of these companies will be considered as proof of all transactions between the Parties on the Site. Data relating to orders is archived on a reliable and durable medium that can be produced as proof.
Products are delivered by Amazon within a maximum of 5 working days.
The delivery charge is calculated on a flat-rate basis as follows: €5.95 with delivery against signature of the chosen items within 3 to 5 working days after your order date.
Deliveries will not be accepted if the delivery address given on the Site is :
- a hotel or other lodging house
- poste restante
- a post office box
- a non-fixed address or domicile (i.e., and without this list being exhaustive, mobile homes, caravans, campsites and other non-fixed domiciliations) or in a collective place where an individual address cannot be clearly and durably attributed to a natural or legal person.
The Customer must check that the Products are in good condition on delivery. Any anomaly concerning the delivery (damaged packages, missing items compared to the ALPHASCIENCE invoice, late delivery etc...) must, if possible, be noted on the delivery receipt presented by the carrier. The Customer must also report this in writing (by post to the following address: Alphascience - Service Relation Clientèle - 91 rue du Faubourg Saint Honoré - 75008 PARIS) or by telephone on + 33 9 70 44 69 40 from Monday to Saturday, 9am to 7pm) to ALPHASCIENCE in order to improve the quality of service that may be offered and to enable ALPHASCIENCE to investigate the carrier.
If the Customer has reported a missing product, an investigation with the carrier may take up to 21 working days. If the product is found during this period, it will be immediately redirected to the delivery address indicated on the order form.
On the other hand, if the Product ordered is not found at the end of this 21-day investigation period, ALPHASCIENCE will proceed, at its own expense, with a new shipment of the missing products initially ordered by the Customer.
In the event of non-conformity of a delivered Product, the Customer may return it to ALPHASCIENCE at the following address: Alphascience - Service Relation Clientèle - 91 rue du Faubourg Saint Honoré - 75008 PARIS, in its original condition, bearing the original labels and accompanied by the original packaging and delivery slip.
In the event that the return of the defective Product is well-founded, ALPHASCIENCE will proceed, at the Customer's option, or in the absence of a request from the Customer, at ALPHASCIENCE's option, with the reimbursement of the defective Product or its exchange insofar as this Product is available in stock, to the exclusion of any compensation. Under no circumstances may the return, exchange or refund be requested and/or carried out in store.
With the exception of the above hypotheses, no Product exchange is authorized.
It is specified that ALPHASCIENCE is responsible for return shipping costs. ALPHASCIENCE will send the Customer a "return shipping label" if the return decision is the result of an error on ALPHASCIENCE's part.
9.1 In accordance with the provisions of article L.121-21 of the French Consumer Code, the Customer has a period of fourteen (14) clear days to return, at his or her own expense, the Product(s) he or she has ordered if they are not to his or her satisfaction, and to cancel his or her order. This period runs from the date of receipt of the order.
In accordance with article L.121-21-8 of the French Consumer Code, the Customer may not exercise his right of withdrawal in the event that the Products have been unsealed after delivery and cannot be returned for reasons of hygiene or health protection.
Consequently, the Customer is informed that he/she will not be able to exercise his/her right of retraction on products which have been unsealed by the Customer and which, if re-marketed by ALPHASCIENCE, would present risks for reasons of hygiene or health protection for consumers (e.g. care products, make-up, etc.).
Customers wishing to exercise their right of withdrawal must inform ALPHASCIENCE of their intention to withdraw by contacting ALPHASCIENCE Customer Service within 14 (fourteen) days of receipt of the Products. In this case, the Customer may use the model retraction form appended to these Terms and Conditions or any other unambiguous statement and send it to the following address Alphascience - Service Relation Clientèle - 91 rue du Faubourg Saint Honoré - 75008 PARIS or to the email address email@example.com. In accordance with Article L.121-21-3 of the French Consumer Code, the Customer undertakes to return the Products concerned within a maximum period of 14 (fourteen) days from the date of this notification to ALPHASCIENCE. If the Products are received after this 14-day period, ALPHASCIENCE is deemed to have been informed of the Customer's wish to withdraw at the time the Products are actually sent.
Return shipping costs are the responsibility of the Customer. ALPHASCIENCE does not accept packages with postage due.
All risks related to the return of the Product(s) are the responsibility of the Customer.
If the aforementioned conditions are met, ALPHASCIENCE will reimburse the Customer for all sums incurred by the Customer in connection with the purchase of the Product(s) concerned (sales price and delivery costs), within fourteen (14) days of receipt of your retraction request. However, ALPHASCIENCE reserves the right to defer reimbursement until receipt of the Products concerned or until the Customer has provided proof of shipment of the Products concerned, whichever comes first.
ALPHASCIENCE will then exchange or reimburse the defective Product(s).
Upon receipt of the allegedly non-conforming Product(s), ALPHASCIENCE will examine the Product(s) as quickly as possible. If the non-conformity of the Product(s) is confirmed by ALPHASCIENCE, the Customer will be reimbursed the sums corresponding to the price(s) of the Product(s) acquired by him/her, within a period of fourteen (14) following the date on which the Customer's right of retraction was exercised in accordance with Article L.121-21 of the French Consumer Code.
ALPHASCIENCE is only bound by an obligation of means. The Customer remains the sole judge of the appropriateness and suitability for his needs and consumption of the items he orders.
ALPHASCIENCE shall not be held liable for any use of the Products that does not comply with their intended purpose.
ALPHASCIENCE cannot be held responsible for (i) the loss, alteration or fraudulent access to the Customer's personal data, (ii) the accidental transmission of viruses or other harmful elements resulting from Internet access or e-mail transmissions.
ALPHASCIENCE does not warrant that the Site will be available continuously, without temporary interruption, suspension or error.
Without limiting the scope of the other provisions of the General Terms and Conditions of Sale, ALPHASCIENCE may only be held liable in the event of a proven fault attributable exclusively to it. In any case, it will be limited to direct damages only.
ALPHASCIENCE reserves the right to suspend the operation of the Site.
The personal information collected in the context of distance selling is compulsory, as this information is necessary for the processing and delivery of orders, as well as for the preparation of invoices. Failure to provide this information will result in automatic rejection of the order. This information may be transmitted to ALPHASCIENCE's partners, in particular commercial partners. This information and data is also kept for security purposes, to comply with legal and regulatory obligations and to enable ALPHASCIENCE to improve and personalize the services offered and information sent to the Customer.
This information is strictly confidential.
In accordance with the French law n°78-17 of January 6, 1978 relating to information technology, files and civil liberties, the processing of nominative information collected on the Site has been declared to the Commission Nationale de l'Informatique et des Libertés. Customers have the right to access, modify, rectify and delete data concerning them. To exercise this right, the Customer should send a letter to the following address: Alphascience - Service Relation Clientèle - 91 rue du Faubourg Saint Honoré - 75008 PARIS.
Depending on the choices made by the Customer when creating or consulting his account, the latter will be offered several options, in particular those allowing him to receive newsletters or offers from ALPHASCIENCE or to authorize the transfer of his data to ALPHASCIENCE partners. If the Customer no longer wishes to do so, he/she may request ALPHASCIENCE to do so at any time.
The intellectual property rights attached to the items sold on the Site are and remain the exclusive property of ALPHASCIENCE. All exploitation rights are exclusively reserved to ALPHASCIENCE.
