Article 5 – Payment terms


5.1 – Payment methods


Items on the Website shall be paid upon order placement, in one instalment.

To pay for their order, the Customer shall use one of the following payment methods at their disposal:
• Bank card: Visa, Mastercard and Carte Bleue Debit Card
Temahome offers its customers an online credit card payment secured by SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption protocol. Temahome uses the HIPAY WALLET (www.hipay.com) payment service provider. The bank details of any buyer paying by credit card are not kept by Temahome and are transmitted directly to HIPAY.
Some payment methods use 3D Secure enhanced security. This technology complements standard security by requesting an additional code sent by text message to the Customer’s mobile phone or a voice message sent to the Customer’s landline phone.
The Customer shall enter their bank details. Communication by the Customer of their credit card number and cryptogram means they authorise the debit of the order amount from their account.
Any order with credit card payment is only considered effective when the payment centres concerned give their consent.

  • Bank transfer made to Temahome’s bank account whose references are accessible after order validation, without Online Customer Support Service intervention: The bank account holder must be the person placing the order (first name, surname and address identity). The order shall be reserved for seventy-two (72) hours from cart validation and shall only be confirmed upon receipt of the transferred amount.
    Should the transfer not be received within seventy-two (72) hours from cart validation, the order shall be considered cancelled.

 

5.2 – Fight against payment fraud


For reasons of fraud limitation, Temahome reserves the right, in order to accept the sale, to ask the Customer to present a proof of identity, residence and method of payment used. In this case, the order shall be processed upon receipt of these documents. Temahome reserves the right to cancel the order should the proofs of identity not be received or should they be deemed non-compliant.
Temahome reserves the right to refuse to honour any order should there be a dispute over payment of a previous order.

 

5.3 – Payment incident

Temahome shall not be required to deliver the items ordered by the Customer should the Customer not pay the price in full under the abovementioned conditions.

When the order is debited, in case of incomplete, irregular or non-existent payment for any reason or in case of any payment incident, Temahome reserves the right to suspend or cancel the delivery of ongoing orders.

In the event of non-payment for whatever reason, an amicable lump sum compensation of fifteen euros (€15) shall be required by Temahome in addition to the invoice amount, plus debit fees invoiced by Temahome’s bank should there be an amicable collection which remains unsuccessful within ten (10) days from the date of delivery of the first collection request letter, be it sent by registered post or by simple post. Collection shall be done by litigation. Litigation costs to be invoiced by the collection company acting on behalf of Temahome shall be charged directly to the Customer, independently of the amicable lump sum compensation.

In the event of non-payment after a formal failure to pay notice remains ineffective, Temahome retains full ownership rights over the items ordered until full payment is made and may file a lawsuit to claim it before a competent judge.


Article 6 – Product availability


Product availability indicated on the Website is valid within the limits of available stocks except for customised products made to measure. Prior to any purchase, the Customer shall be informed of the availability of those products.
The Customer acknowledges and accepts that Temahome shall do everything within its power to process and fulfil all the orders validated.


Insofar as processing delays are necessary between the registration of an order and its payment by the Customer, the products may become unavailable during this period.
Should, following order confirmation by Temahome, the products become totally or partially unavailable, Temahome shall inform the Customer by email of this unavailability in accordance with the provisions of article L 121–20–3 of the French Consumer Code.
Given this context, the Customer has the following options:
• Choose to receive a Temahome product that is similar in quality and price.
• Choose to be reimbursed for the order within fourteen (14) days after the product has been paid.



Article 7 – Delivery

7.1 – Delivery terms and deadlines

Products can be delivered to the countries mentioned in article 1. 
Products are delivery at the address given by the Customer upon placement of the order.
Temahome uses different delivery methods according to the products ordered. The order can therefore be delivered in several packages and on different dates, should the Customer so accept. Temahome commits to respect the delivery times indicated on the Website, however they may not be fulfilled in case of force majeure, as defined by law and jurisprudence.

The shipping time is of seventy-two (72) business hours from receipt of the order confirmation. These deadlines are calculated in working days (except Sundays and bank holidays).

 

Should the Temahome company close, the delivery times shall be extended by one week for any order placed between week 52 and week 1.

Should there be a delivery problem, Temahome undertakes to make its best efforts to keep the Customer informed of the possible delivery date extension.

 


The carrier chosen by Temahome shall contact the Customer in order to set a delivery date.
Should the Customer be absent on the delivery day, the Customer must contact this carrier service at least one day before the appointment in order to arrange a new delivery date.
When making an appointment with Temahome, the Customer must expressly indicate any access difficulties that the carrier may encounter and measure the access passages of their home.
All additional costs related to the rental of furniture hoist, articulated bucket lift, etc. shall be borne by the Customer and charged by the carrier in addition to the sale price and delivery costs mentioned on the Website.
The Customer undertakes to be present on the day of the delivery agreed with the carrier and to check the conformity of the order upon receiving it.
Should the Customer be absent from the address indicated on the day of delivery, or should there be an error made by the Customer regarding the given delivery address, the costs of a new delivery shall be borne by the Customer.
Likewise, should it be impossible to make the delivery due to access difficulties not indicated in advance, the costs of a new delivery shall be borne by the Customer.
Should this second appointment not be fixed because of the Customer, fifteen (15) days after a formal notice remained unsuccessful, the sale shall be considered as being delivered.

 

7.2 – What to do before validating an order


Prior to any order and any purchase, the Customer shall ensure that each product ordered can be delivered without difficulty and verify that the dimensions of the packages and products specified on the product sheet fit the specific spatial constraints of their home (elevators, stairs, corridors, landing doors, front door, etc.). The Customer must thereby take all necessary measures to ensure the smooth running of the delivery.
Should there be any difficulty during the delivery of products for which the Customer is solely responsible for, the Customer shall be charged the costs of a new products delivery.

Delivery by carrier does not include assembly, at the building’s entrance or front door of the house.

 

7.3 – What to do when receiving an order

 

Before signing the delivery note, the Customer must:


  • Check the apparent condition of the package(s).
    • Check the condition of the products inside the package(s).
    • Check the good condition of the products in relation to the delivery note and the products ordered.


Thus, the Customer shall be responsible for making all the necessary conformity checks upon order delivery. This check shall be deemed to having been carried out upon signature of the delivery note by the customer and the carrier has enabled verification by all means of the good condition of the package and its contents.

Should there be any anomalies noted during delivery, the Customer must enter them on the delivery slip provided by the carrier.

Should the delivery be non-compliant (when the carrier does not justify having given the Customer the possibility of actually checking its good condition), the Customer must confirm his reservations concerning the products delivered no later than ten (10) days after receiving the products.

These reservations must be sent by registered post with acknowledgement of receipt to the carrier, in order to remind them of the damages or of the missing items in detail, as well as to Service Client Web de Temahome, 7 rue des Vernais 74 230 Thônes, accompanied by, at least, two photographs and a copy of the carrier’s delivery note with the reservations written down. After this period, any request shall be rejected by Temahome and Temahome cannot be held liable.


Complaints accepted shall lead to a compliance or an exchange of the defective or non-compliant product or to its reimbursement in case of unavailability of the product in storage or with suppliers.
Without Temahome’s agreement, no spontaneous return shall be accepted.
Should there be an absence of specific reservations made by the Customer within the a ten (10)-day period, delivery shall be considered as having been made, subject to the guarantees described in article 11 below.

 


Article 8 – Retention of ownership and risk transfer


Temahome shall retain ownership of the products sold until its full (main and accessories) payment has been made. This provision does not prevent the transfer of risk to the customer, as from their reception (risks of loss and deterioration of the purchased products and damages they could cause).

 


Article 9 – Product information


Temahome disseminates information concerning the products’ essential characteristics with the utmost rigour and undertakes to provide descriptions in the form of “product sheets”.
There may be differences between the products delivered and those represented on the Website, namely those regarding technical or technological developments. These differences, since they do not relate to the essential characteristics of the products and do not affect their quality, cannot justify a cancellation of the order or a refusal of delivery.


Due to the imponderable techniques inherent to photography operations and Internet navigation systems and/or monitors, the colours on the Website are only indicative and cannot, in any case, be considered as a faithful representation of the real colours of the products represented. There may be sensitive colour deviations, especially in certain finishes such as wood laminate and marble, which cannot be opposed to Temahome.
On the other hand, Temahome cannot be held liable for involuntary errors or omissions that could persist, despite all our care and control.
