4.2 General Information
Prior to placing any order, the Customers may learn about the essential characteristics of the product(s) they are interested in, on the website, by clicking on the product. Some products may be limited in quantity per order. A telephone number is also available to the Customers, so they can obtain any additional information about the product (this is a toll call, to be made at the Customers’ expense.) This is done so that the Customers can become familiar with the essential characteristics of all of the products we offer for sale before placing any order. TAAJ does everything it can to ensure that the Products represented on our website faithfully represent the Products we deliver. Nonetheless, in order to ensure that our website is legible, the product images are not reproduced to scale, since they are presented on the Internet, so that TAAJ cannot guarantee that the delivered product will correspond, in every detail, to the Customers’ perception of it at the time they placed their order.
Description, illustrations, references, characteristics, content, specifications, price and availability of any product are subject to change without prior notice.
The products offered for sale are those that appear on the website at the time that the Customers visit it, and are limited to available inventory. TAAJ reserves the right to limit available quantities, without prior notice, to pull any product from the group of products it offers for sale, to modify, improve and change its products. Some products displayed or described on the site may not be available or may not be authorized for sale in every country.
If a product becomes unavailable after the order is placed, TAAJ shall inform the Customers by email as soon as possible that the expected delivery will only be for a partial quantity, or will be canceled. If the Customers’ bank account has been debited and it has not been possible to complete the order, TAAJ undertakes to reimburse the amount corresponding to the undelivered products to the Customers, at the latest, within the 30 days following the drawing of this amount from their bank account.
Applicable prices are those listed on the Site at the time that the Customers confirm their order. Prices are listed in Euros and are understood to include all taxes, including the applicable VAT in France, the day of the order.
Applicable delivery expenses that are the responsibility of the Customers are listed as such on the order summary, which is presented before order confirmation. These delivery expenses vary by the delivery means chosen by the Customers.
5.1 Customer Account
The Customers must create an account, with a user name and a password, in order to access certain pages of the site, and in order to purchase the products displayed there.

The Customers shall specifically undertake to state:
- Their surname(s), first name(s), telephone number and a valid and functioning email address,
- A complete postal address, where deliveries can be made, and the surname(s) and first name(s) of the recipient, if different than those of the Customers.

The Customers are solely responsible for the confidentiality of the user name and password they use to access their account on the Site. The Customers shall undertake to not reveal either their user name or password.

5.4 Means of Payment
Once the order has been validated, and the General Conditions of Sale have been accepted, the Customers are redirected to a secure Internet page, in order to pay for their order online.
Payment is made only in Euros by bank card or PayPal account, to the exclusion of any other means of payment:
- By Bank Card (Blue, Visa, Eurocard/MasterCard). The transaction is completed securely through the Ogone-Ingenico (www.ingenico.com) payment service. All data input at the time of payment by bank card is immediately encrypted by the SSL protocol. No confidential payment data is stored by TAAJ. If an item is returned, re-imbursement will be credited to the account used to pay the original order.
The Customers guarantee TAAJ that they have the right to use the means of payment chosen. If the banking institution refuses payment, the order is automatically cancelled, and TAAJ informs the Customers. Furthermore, TAAJ reserves the right to take all useful legal actions.
TAAJ remains the owner of the merchandise ordered by the Customers until complete payment of the corresponding price. TAAJ also reserves the right to suspend any order from a Customer with whom there exists a payment dispute regarding a previous order.
When payment is validated, a printable order confirmation is sent to the Customers’ email address within a maximum period of forty-eight (48) hours. This ticket or confirmation includes all of the order references, the exact amount invoiced, the delivery means for the order and the power of the Customers to withdraw.
TAAJ recommends that you save this information.

6. DELIVERY AND RECEIPT OF THE ORDER
6.1 Place of delivery
Your order can be delivered only in mainland France (including Corsica).
6.2 Delivery Schedules and Rates
Delivery costs vary by the total weight of the order. Expenses related to delivery are listed in the Customers’ order summary before its validation. The Customers are deemed to have agreed to related delivery expenses when they validate their order, and to having undertaken to pay these expenses.
For every delivery, the Customers can choose between:
- A standard Colissimo delivery

Orders placed with a standard delivery in mainland France (including Corsica) and Monaco, with an amount higher than 55 Euros are free from delivery charges. Delivery schedules and rates vary by the delivery area, and by the means of delivery chosen by the Customers during the order.
|Means of delivery

||FREE OF CHARGE
||3 à 4 working days
|Chronopost - Home delivery
||1 à 2 working days
These delivery schedules run beginning with the reception of the order confirmation email and do not run with the order preparation schedule.

Delivery is performed by a third party service provider (the “Service Provider.”) The Customers acknowledge that TAAJ cannot be held liable for failure to deliver, poor execution of delivery or late delivery if these events may be attributed to the Customers (as an example, due to an incomplete or incorrect address), to the Service Provider or to an occurrence of force majeure.
Nonetheless, we ask the Customers to inform TAAJ in writing to the Customer Service Department, by using the contact form, of any delay in delivery, if the period of delivery is exceeded by more than thirty (30) working days, so that the Service Provider can perform the necessary investigations. The Customers may request cancellation and reimbursement of their order.
6.3 Advice and obligations at the moment of receipt
Depending on the means of delivery chosen, the order recipient may be asked to sign the receipt submitted by the Service Provider. When the Customers are absent from the delivery location, the recipient of the ordered product will receive instruction from the Service Provider to be followed in order to withdraw their Order or to request a new delivery.
TAAJ remains the owner of the merchandise ordered by the Customers until complete payment of the corresponding price.
In all cases, delivery is deemed to have been completed at the moment when the Service Provider makes the Order available to the Customers (by handing it over, leaving it in the letter box, or at a recovery location specified by the Service Provider) or to any other person named in the order, with the Service Provider’s information system serving to attest to this. The Customers are therefore asked to track the progress of their parcel using the tracking service offered by the Service Provider.
At the moment of reception, the Customers are bound to verify the contents of the parcel, to state any reservations or claims to the Service Provider in the case of delay or damage to the parcel, and to sign Service Provider’s delivery receipt or to refuse the parcel. The Customers must inform in writing the reservations or claims to the Service Provider’s delivery guarantee departments and to the TAAJ Customer Service Department within a maximum of three (3) days. If not, the Customers are deemed to have acknowledged receipt of the products in a completely satisfactory state.
