The Artist is bound to deliver a good according to the indications and answers the defects of conformity existing at the time of the delivery of the Work to the Buyer.

The property is unsuitable for the customary use of a similar good;
The good does not correspond to the description given by the Artist;
The property does not have the qualities announced by the Artist or agreed with the Buyer;
Given the peculiarity of the product which is a work of art, the Purchaser acknowledges that the lack of conformity can be based only on objective elements (damaged Work, Work obviously different from his page on the Site, etc ... ) to the exclusion of any subjective appreciation of the qualities of the Work.
However, the Purchaser can not challenge compliance by invoking a defect he knew or could not ignore when he contracted.

In the event of non-compliance of the Works or the application of the hidden defects guarantee, the Buyer must inform the Artist directly by email; alainmimouni@gmail.com by attaching the original invoice.
The Buyer may then, at his option, make the request:
Either to be reimbursed the Order price of the Work with restitution of the Work by the Buyer at the expense of the Artist.
Either to exchange the work for an identical product, subject to the referral of the latter at its expense. The new work will then be sent to the customer at the expense of Alain Mimouni.
However, this will only be granted after receipt, verification and acceptance of the Artist.

The Customer has a period of two (2) years from the Order to implement this guarantee.

In order to avoid any inconvenience, the products are checked by our company before their shipment
