1. Legal warranty
All our equipment sold benefits from the legal guarantee of conformity and the guarantee of hidden defects, under the following legal conditions.
Be suitable for the use normally expected of a similar item and, where applicable:
- correspond to the description given by the seller and have the qualities that the latter presented to the buyer in the form of a sample or model;
- present the qualities that a buyer can legitimately expect in view of the public statements made by the seller, by the producer or by his representative, in particular in advertising or labeling;
Or have the characteristics defined by mutual agreement by the parties or be suitable for any special purpose sought by the buyer, brought to the attention of the seller and which the latter has accepted.
The commercial guarantee means any contractual commitment by a professional to the consumer for the reimbursement of the purchase price, replacement or repair of the goods or the provision of any other service in relation to the well, in addition to its legal obligations to guarantee the conformity of the good.
The commercial guarantee is the subject of a written contract, a copy of which is given to the buyer.
The contract specifies the content of the guarantee, the terms of its implementation, its price, its duration, its territorial extent as well as the name and address of the guarantor.
In addition, it clearly and precisely mentions that, independently of the commercial guarantee, Son Portable Distribution remains bound by the legal guarantee of conformity mentioned in articles L. 217-4 to L. 217-12 and that relating to defects in the thing sold, under the conditions provided for in articles 1641 to 1648 and 2232 of the civil code.
The provisions of articles L. 217-4, L. 217-5, L. 217-12 and L. 217-16 as well as article 1641 and the first paragraph of article 1648 of the civil code are fully reproduced in the contract.
In the event of non-compliance with these provisions, the guarantee remains valid. The buyer is entitled to avail himself of it.
The action resulting from the lack of conformity lapses two years after delivery of the goods (C. cons. Art. L. 217-12).
When the hidden defect has been proven, the consumer must first choose between replacing or repairing the goods. However, the seller may himself decide on one of the two solutions in the event of a manifest disproportion of the cost of the solution chosen by the consumer.
The legal guarantee of conformity and the legal guarantee of hidden defects apply independently of the commercial guarantee.
Pursuant to article 1644 of the Civil Code, the customer has the choice, within the framework of the implementation of the legal guarantee of hidden defects, between the resolution of the sale or a reduction in the price of the products concerned.
Similarly, as part of the implementation of the legal guarantee of conformity, the customer has, in accordance with the provisions of article L.217-7 of the Consumer Code, the choice between repair or replacement of the product concerned.
