Article 2. – Scope of application
These General Terms and Conditions of Sale apply to all sales of Goods and Services by the Vendor through the Site.
The Customer declares that he/she has read and understood these General Terms and Conditions of Sale before validating the Order as defined in Article 3. Validation of the Order therefore implies unreserved acceptance of these General Terms and Conditions of Sale.
These General Terms and Conditions of Sale apply to orders placed for delivery in mainland France, Corsica, DOM TOM and the rest of the world.
In the case of professional customers, the customer receives the information specified in articles L. 441-6 and L. 442-6, I, 9°, of the French Commercial Code, before and after the conclusion of the sale, and in particular by means of these General Sales Conditions.
With regard to consumer customers, in accordance with articles L. 111-1 and L. 111-3 of the French Consumer Code, the essential characteristics and prices of Goods and Services sold electronically are available on the Site.
In addition, the Customer receives the information provided for in Articles L. 121-8 and L. 121-19 of the French Consumer Code, before and after the conclusion of the sale, in particular by means of these General Terms and Conditions of Sale.
Article 3. – Ordering Goods and Services and Completing the Online Sale
Any order implies express and irrevocable acceptance of the prices and descriptions of the products available for sale.
In order to complete the order, the Customer must complete the following steps:
- Enter the site address ;
- Follow the instructions on the Site and, in particular, the instructions required to open a customer account;
- Fill in the order form. In the event of prolonged inactivity at the time of connection, it is possible that the selection of articles chosen by the Customer before this inactivity is no longer guaranteed. The customer is then invited to start again from the beginning;
- Check Order elements and, if necessary, identify and correct errors;
- Validate the Price (“Place Order”) then choose your delivery method and validate the Total Amount (“Continue”) ;
- Validate Order (the “Validate Order”) ;
- Follow the instructions on the online payment server to pay the Total Amount.
The Customer will then immediately receive electronic confirmation of acceptance of payment for the Order. The Customer will also immediately receive an electronic acknowledgement of receipt confirming the Order (the “Order Confirmation”). The Customer receives electronic confirmation that the Order has been dispatched.
Delivery will be made to the delivery address indicated by the Customer at the time of the Order.
When carrying out the various stages of the order mentioned above, the Customer undertakes to respect the present contractual conditions in application of article 1316-1 of the French Civil Code.
The Vendor undertakes to honour orders only within the limits of available stocks of Goods. If the items are not available, the Vendor undertakes to inform the Customer.
However, in accordance with article L. 122-1 of the French Consumer Code, the Vendor reserves the right to refuse the Order if it is abnormal, placed in bad faith or for any other legitimate reason, and in particular if there is a dispute with the Customer concerning payment of a previous order.
Article 4. – Prices of Goods and Services and Conditions of Validity
The price of items sold on the Site is indicated by item and reference respectively and is in €uro, all taxes included. They take into account the French VAT applicable on the day of the order. Any order delivered outside France may be subject to taxes and customs duties that are imposed when the parcel reaches its destination. Any customs duties and taxes associated with the delivery of an item are the responsibility of the Customer. The seller is not obliged to check and inform the customer of applicable customs duties and taxes. To find out what they are, customers are invited to contact the relevant authorities in their country.
Prices do not include shipping costs.
At the time of Order Validation, the price to be paid is the Total Amount, including the total amount of the items and the delivery charges.
Prices cannot be modified once the Customer’s order has been placed. However, if one or more taxes or contributions, in particular environmental taxes, are created or modified, either upwards or downwards, this change may be reflected in the selling price of the items on the site, depending on the date on which these taxes come into force.
Telecommunication costs incurred in accessing the Site are the sole responsibility of the Customer.
The period of validity of offers and prices is determined by the updating of the Site.
Some search engines and price comparison sites can reference the www.NatureAZ.com website and its articles, or press articles, with photos, descriptions and prices. The seller is not responsible for the information contained on these sites, nor for any failure to update them, and therefore declines all responsibility for the content, advertising, products or services indicated on these sites and for the use made of them by the Customer. Only the information and prices presented on the www.NatureAZ.com website and in the advertising carried out by the Vendor are contractually binding.
Article 5. – Terms of payment
The Seller reserves ownership of the goods until full payment has been received.
Payment of the “total amount” by the customer is made by one of the following methods: bank transfer, credit card (CB, Visa, Mastercard, Eurocard, Maestro, Visa, Electron, American Express), cheque.
In the case of payment by credit card, the transaction is immediately debited from the customer’s credit card after verification of the card details, and upon receipt of debit authorization from the company issuing the credit card used by the customer.
In accordance with article L. 132-2 of the French Monetary and Financial Code (Code monétaire et financier), the commitment to pay given by means of a payment card is irrevocable. By providing his credit card details, the Customer authorizes the Vendor to debit his credit card for the total amount of the order.
To this end, the Customer confirms that he/she is the holder of the bank card to be debited and that the name on the bank card is indeed his/her own. The customer provides the sixteen digits and expiry date of his credit card, as well as the visual cryptogram numbers, if applicable.
In the event of a credit card payment being rejected by the cardholder’s bank, the payment may be represented over a period of 7 days at the customer’s request. In the event of further refusals after this period, the order will be automatically cancelled and no charges will be invoiced.
In the event that it is impossible to debit the full amount of the order, the order will be immediately cancelled by operation of law.
The Seller makes every effort to ensure the confidentiality and security of data transmitted on the www.NatureAZ.com site: 128 Bits encrypted secure module. Bank exchanges and authorizations handled by Stripe.
The seller may carry out checks to ensure that the customer is authorized to use the credit card. To this end, the Seller may request, within two working days, the transmission of :
– Either a copy of the account statement clearly showing the Nature AZ debit corresponding to the order (balances, other entries, account numbers, etc. may be hidden).
– Or a copy of the cardholder’s ID.
The products ordered are reserved for 7 days from the request for proof. If the requested document is not received within 7 days, the order will be automatically cancelled and the items will be put back on sale on the site. The Vendor may not be held liable in the event of non-delivery of the order due to non-payment of the order.
In the event of an error by the customer disputing payment by credit card, charges will be billed (as of 15/09/2018: legal interest rate plus 5.71%), with a minimum of €20.00 excluding tax per transaction. The customer therefore undertakes to ensure that he has not actually made the payment before disputing it with his bank.
Bank transfers should be made payable to LABORATOIRE NATURE AZ, Place de la Mairie, 48260 Recoules-d’Aubrac. Orders are prepared and dispatched on receipt of funds.
For payment by cheque, cheques are made payable to LABORATOIRE NATURE AZ and orders are prepared and dispatched upon receipt of the cheque and confirmation of collection by the issuing bank. Depending on the bank, this confirmation can take from 10 to 22 days.
In accordance with Article L131-15 of the French Monetary and Financial Code, customers giving a cheque as payment must provide proof of their identity by means of an official document bearing their photograph (national identity card, passport, etc.).
From receipt of the Order Confirmation e-mail, the products ordered are reserved for 7 days. If we do not receive the cheque and the identity document within 7 days, the order will be automatically cancelled and the items will be put back on sale on the site. The Vendor may not be held liable in the event of non-delivery of the order due to non-payment of the order.
Failure to pay in full by the due date will automatically result in the invoicing of a penalty clause amounting to 15% of the unpaid sum, excluding VAT, with a minimum of 20 euros excluding VAT.
Article 6. – Order Delivery

The Vendor informs the Customer by e-mail that Delivery will be delayed. The Customer may then decide to cancel the Order and will send the Vendor an Order cancellation notice by e-mail.
If the order has not yet been dispatched when the Vendor receives the Customer’s cancellation notice, delivery will be blocked and the Customer will be reimbursed for any sums debited within a maximum of 30 days following payment. If the Order has already been dispatched when the Seller receives the Customer’s cancellation notice, the Customer may still cancel the Order by refusing the parcel.

6.4. Checking the order on arrival
The Customer is obliged to check the condition of the packaging and the items on delivery.

Failure to lodge a claim within the aforementioned time limit extinguishes any action against the carrier in accordance with article L. 133-3 of the French Commercial Code.
The Customer must ensure that the Goods delivered correspond to the Order. Any claim for non-conformity or missing items must be submitted in accordance with the conditions set out in article 7.
In the case of a sale to a professional registered with the Register of Commerce and Companies and/or the Trade Register or an equivalent register in his or her country of origin, the professional undertakes to check the good condition and conformity of the goods on delivery, and to make the necessary reservations on the delivery slip, or even to refuse the parcel if the parcel is obviously damaged on delivery. No complaint will be taken into account if the reception of the goods did not give place to any reserve with the conveyor. Any order for which the Siret or Siren number is indicated, or any order made by a Customer whose company name, and/or Surname and First Name, and/or billing address, correspond to a professional with a Siret number, will be considered as a sale to a professional.
