These general conditions of sale are intended to define exclusively, as a result of the relationships they establish on the Internet, the rights and obligations of the Parties arising from the online sale of products offered on the Site. They regulate all the steps involved in placing the order and following up on this order between the Contracting Parties.
The Parties agree that their relationship will be governed exclusively by this contract and special conditions of delivery and return submitted under the tab "Terms of delivery and return." If a condition is found to be lacking, it will be governed by the procedures in force in the field of distance selling companies with headquarters in France.
The products offered for sale by Betrousse are those listed on the Site ("Products"), on the day of consultation of the Site by the User and subject to availability. If a certain product is not available, Betrousse agrees to promptly notify the User.
In case of unavailability beyond 30 days of product order and payment, the buyer will be notified by email. The order of this product will be cancelled and a refund issued, while the rest of the order remains firm and final.
The photographs and texts illustrating the products are not contractual.
Prices are shown in Euros. They take into account possible reductions as well as the VAT applicable on the date of the order.
Prices shown are guaranteed, subject to availability unless significant changes take place in the charges, including VAT, or unless typographical errors or omissions are involved. Prices indicated do not include the extra cost of postage and packing which will be reported specified to the User during the final order confirmation.
As stated, any promotions in the form of vouchers are only valid for one order per household during the stated period of validity.

Any complaint made after this time shall be rejected and Betrousse will be released from all liability. Betrousse reserves the right, if it so desires, to require the Buyer to return the defective Product.
If the above conditions are met, Betrousse will then either exchange or refund the defective product (s), or re-ship the missing product (subject to the merits of the buyer’s request).

The Product(s) must be returned in its (their) packaging and its (their) original wrapping to the following address: Company BETROUSSE UK LTD 9 QUEEN'S YARD WHITE POST LANE LONDON ENGLAND E9 5EN Company No. 08025730

The amount payable by the Purchaser is indicated on the order confirmation sent by e-mail by Betrousse to the Purchaser.
