These General Terms and Conditions of Sale (the “GTCS”) create a contract between the client (“Client”, “you” or “your”) and Karine Augis. The Client is a final consumer, a natural person (and not a company) with full legal capacity who places an Order on the site for any purpose other than professional use, resale or distribution. An “Order” is defined as the commitment to purchase all the Items selected by the Customer via the Site’s e- commerce service. The “Items” are the fashion products offered for sale on the site.

In this respect, Karine Augis cannot be held responsible for the cancellation of an Order for an Item due to the exhaustion of stocks. In the event that an item is unavailable after an Order has been placed, the Client will be informed by e-mail and the order will be automatically cancelled. We will then propose a new delivery date or an equivalent product or a refund of the Article.
The characteristics of the Items sold on the Site (photographs, descriptions of the Items, etc.) may vary over time. Only the characteristics of the Item displayed at the time of the Order shall be taken into account by the Client.

ARTICLE 9 – LEGAL GUARANTEES
Article not in conformity with the Order or with an apparent defect
The presence of an apparent defect on an Article must give rise to a complaint by e-mail (contact@karineaugis. com). Any complaint must explain the defect concerned. Failing this, no complaint is admissible and no return or exchange is possible.
The Item must be returned, in its original packaging, new with the original Order references and a copy of the complaint to KANA’s head office after sending an e-mail stating the apparent defect of the Item mentioned above.
Depending on the content of the Customer’s complaint, cases of apparent defects give rise either to the establishment of a credit note for the benefit of the Customer, or to the replacement of the Article, or to the outright reimbursement of the Customer within 14 (fourteen) days. If the return procedure is not respected, no exchange or refund or credit note is possible.
In addition, Karine Augis guarantees consumers against defects in conformity (articles L. 217-4 et seq. of the French Consumer Code) and latent defects (articles 1641 et seq. of the French Civil Code) for the Items sold on the Site under the following conditions:
9.1 – Non-compliance
The Customer: benefits from a period of 2 (two) years from the delivery of the Article to act on the lack of conformity of the Article; is exempted from proving the existence of the lack of conformity of the good during the 6 (six) months following the delivery of the Article; and may choose between repairing or replacing the Article, subject to the cost conditions provided for by Article L. 217-9 of the Consumer Code.
If repair and replacement of the goods are impossible, and in particular if the item is no longer available in stock at the time when the Customer claims that the item is not in conformity, the buyer may return the goods and have the price returned or keep the goods and have part of the price returned.
9.2 – Hidden defects
The Customer may invoke the legal guarantee for hidden defects in the item sold, within the meaning of Articles 1641 et seq. of the Civil Code, in the event that a hidden defect, prior to the sale and inherent in the item sold, renders this item unfit for its intended use or reduces this use to such an extent that the Customer would not have acquired it, or would have given a lower price for it, if he had known about it.
A latent defect must be a defect which a thing, even a used thing, should not have. Thus, the guarantee for hidden defects cannot be upheld when the defect is only the result of normal wear and tear of the thing or of its prolonged use or when the defect comes from a misuse of the thing.
The legal guarantee for hidden defects allows the Customer, within a period of 2 (two) years from the discovery of the defect, either to keep the Article and ask for a reduction of the price, or to return the Article and ask for the reimbursement of the price paid, in accordance with Article 1644 of the Civil Code.
