A summary of all the products being ordered on the site is provided (your basket) before you are invited to confirm your order by selecting your Click & Collect store or by specifying an address for home delivery.

Jeff de Bruges will notify you regarding the validation of your order. This validation will be sent to you via an email containing your order number.
All the details you provide when placing an order are binding, in particular those concerning the recipient of the order (name, address, etc.), and Jeff de Bruges cannot be held responsible for any anomalies generated as a result, in the event that the company should be unable to fulfil and complete an order due to such anomalies.
Occasionally, due to limited stocks, we may be unable to validate your order. In this case, you will receive an email informing you that your order has not been validated and detailing the full refund to be paid within 14 working days via the means of payment used when you placed your order.
4.3 THE CONSUMER PURCHASER’S RIGHT OF WITHDRAWAL
4.3.1. In accordance with Articles L. 221-18 et seq. of the French Consumer Code, “consumer” purchasers — within the meaning of the preliminary Article of the French Consumer Code — have a period of fourteen (14) clear days, from receiving any product ordered on the Jeff de Bruges site within which to exercise their right of withdrawal in order to obtain a refund. Purchasers do not have to justify their reasons or pay penalties.
The right of withdrawal may be exercised with Jeff de Bruges before the expiry of this period of fourteen (14) clear days, by means of a clearly worded letter sent to this address: JEFF DE BRUGES — Service Consommateurs — Parc du Bel Air, 12 avenue Joseph Paxton – 77164 Ferrières-en-Brie — FRANCE, or by means of the withdrawal form, a template of which can be found in Appendix 1 of these Conditions. An acknowledgement of receipt of this withdrawal form will then be sent by Jeff de Bruges. After the expiry of the aforementioned period of fourteen (14) clear days, withdrawal requests will no longer be accepted.
4.3.2. It should be noted that all products ordered on the site by “consumer” purchasers, within the meaning of the preliminary Article of the French Consumer Code, may be subject to the right of withdrawal, with the exception of products referred to in Article L. 221-28 of the French Consumer Code. Indeed, according to this Article, the right of withdrawal may not be exercised for such contracts as (i) the supply of clearly personalised goods or those made to a consumer’s specifications, (ii) the supply of goods liable to deteriorate or rapidly pass their use-by date and (iii) the supply of goods which have been unsealed by a consumer following delivery and which cannot be returned for hygiene or health protection reasons.
4.3.3. Regarding products that may be subject to the right of withdrawal: purchasers must return them sealed, unopened and untouched, in their original packaging and accompanied by proof of purchase, within fourteen (14) days of communicating their decision to withdraw, to this address: JEFF DE BRUGES – Service Consommateurs – Parc du Bel Air, 12 avenue Joseph Paxton – 77164 Ferrières en Brie — FRANCE. Purchasers are responsible for the cost of returning products.
4.3.4. In the event of the right of withdrawal being exercised under the conditions of this Article, the price of the returned product(s) – as well as the standard delivery costs of the initial order – will be refunded to the purchaser, but not the costs of the return. Refunds will be made by Jeff de Bruges via the same means of payment used by the purchaser when the initial order was placed, within fourteen (14) days from the date on which Jeff de Bruges was informed of the purchaser’s decision to withdraw. Jeff de Bruges may nevertheless withhold refunds until purchasers have provided proof of shipment for returned products, or until such products have been recovered if this occurs before the aforementioned proof has been provided.
4.3.5. It is expressly understood that, in accordance with Article 1 of these General Terms and Conditions, the right of withdrawal laid down in Articles L. 221-18 et seq. of the French Consumer Code does not apply to public or private legal entities, whether or not they are acting for professional purposes, or to natural persons acting for purposes that fall within their commercial, industrial, artisanal, professional or agricultural activities, including when they are acting in the name of or on behalf of another professional.
ARTICLE 5: PAYING FOR ORDERS
Online payment is to be made in euros at the time of placing an order, and for the full amount. Payments can be made using bank cards (Carte Bleue, VISA, Mastercard and American Express) or via Paypal.
In order to provide you with a highly reliable and secure service, we have chosen the Ingenico Payment Services payment system. Entries are encrypted (SSL encryption) for safe and confidential operation. No payment data is stored on our site.

Depending on the products you order, the shipping services available are represented by an icon on the product sheet for each product.
6.1. Home delivery
Regarding home delivery, ordered products will be delivered within Metropolitan France (including Corsica) and within certain European countries (see Article 18.104.22.168 of these Conditions). Delivery takes place according to the deadlines indicated for each method of delivery and to the address you provided when you placed your order on the site. Delivery consists in supplying the ordered product to the address you have indicated.
6.1.2. Delivery deadlines
In principle, delivery deadlines are those mentioned in these Conditions.
However, when placing an order you may be given different delivery deadlines, in particular during periods of peak activity (Christmas and New Year, Easter, etc).
In any event, in cases of force majeure, the delivery deadline you are given may be extended. If the products you order are not delivered within the specified deadline, for any reasons other than force majeure or those attributable to yourself, an order may be cancelled at your request under the conditions laid down in Articles L. 216-2 and L. 216-3 of the French Consumer Code. Sums paid at the time of your order will be returned to you within fourteen (14) days following the date the contract was terminated, excluding any compensation or deductions.
6.1.3. Home delivery methods
22.214.171.124. Home delivery
Products that can be shipped to your home by a carrier are identified on the site via a “home delivery” icon.
Home deliveries are handled by Chronopost or Colissimo, chosen by you. During summer, and as often as the temperature goes up, we will switch for chronofresh services wich offer a controlled temperature shipping.
We provide home deliveries in Metropolitan France, including Corsica.
Delivery charges, which depend on the total value of the goods in your basket, are indicated when you place your order.
Your order is monitored by the carrier who will send you an email when the parcel is collected from Jeff de Bruges and on its delivery to your home.
· Delivery deadlines
Delivery deadlines take into account the time it takes to prepare your order at our factory and the time required by the carrier to transport your order. Orders are received from Mondays to Fridays (excluding bank holidays), therefore orders placed on Saturdays and on Sundays are processed on Mondays or on Tuesdays, depending on available stocks.
Factory opening hours: Mondays to Fridays, excluding bank holidays.
Carrier working days: Mondays to Saturdays, excluding bank holidays.
Methods of delivery Maximum shipping costs Preparation times Transport times Delivery deadlines
Colissimo €8.00 1 – 2 working days 2 – 3 working days 3 – 5 working days

· Delivery address
You are responsible for information relating to the name and address of the order’s recipient. These details must be precise, exact and complete (particularly the door code and floor, if applicable) so that your order can be delivered. Jeff de Bruges can in no way be held responsible for the return of an order due to an error in an address or the impossibility of delivering to the address indicated.
For all home deliveries, we ask you to ensure that the recipient or their representative is present on the day of delivery.
In the absence of the recipient or their representative, the carrier will leave a calling card at the delivery address, with instructions on how to proceed in order to collect the package within a specified deadline. If the recipient or their representative does not collect the package within this deadline, the package will be deemed to have been delivered and no refund or redelivery of the product to another address will be possible. For reasons also linked to the perishable nature of the product, it is strongly recommended that packages be collected from the collection point indicated by the carrier within 24 working hours; you will need to show the calling card and proof of identity. If a package is not collected within the aforementioned deadline, Jeff de Bruges cannot be held responsible for any damage to or deterioration of the products.
In the event that the delivery address indicated corresponds to a public institution (e.g. a hospital, etc.) or private establishment (business, clinic, retirement home, etc.) and the package cannot be delivered by hand to the recipient, the package will be deemed to have been delivered from the moment it is handed in at reception or to the service responsible for receiving goods. In addition, it is your responsibility to ensure that such an establishment will take delivery of your order. Indeed, in the event that an establishment refuses to receive your order, given the recipient’s failure to meet their obligations and the perishable nature of the product, the package will be deemed to have been delivered and no refund or redelivery of the order to another address will be possible.
During the summer, and whenever outside temperatures make it impossible to ensure delivery of orders in optimal condition, Colissimo and Chronopost services are suspended and replaced by Chronofresh.

In the event that the delivery address indicated corresponds to a public institution (e.g. a hospital, etc.) or a private establishment (business, clinic, retirement home, etc.) and the package cannot be delivered by hand to the recipient, the package will be deemed to have been delivered from the moment it is handed in at reception or to the service responsible for receiving goods. In addition, it is your responsibility to ensure that such an establishment will take delivery of your order.

ARTICLE 8: CLAIMS
Jeff de Bruges is committed to giving you complete satisfaction. In this context, should you wish to make a complaint, you may:
- send it by post to the postal address below;
- send it by email to the following address: email@example.com ;
- or directly via our site “www.jeff-de-bruges.com” through the “Contact us” section or via the “Need help” button;
specifying the order number concerned, where applicable.
If a product has not been delivered, for any other reason than a case of force majeure or the above-mentioned cases (absence of the recipient, incorrect information, etc.), an order may be cancelled and the purchaser may obtain a refund of the cost of his order excluding any other form of compensation or damages, in accordance with Article L. 216-2 of the French Consumer Code. The purchaser must therefore initially instruct Jeff de Bruges, by registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt or via another written document on a durable medium (electronic message, for example) to deliver the product within a reasonable further deadline. Only in the event that Jeff de Bruges does not carry out the delivery within this new deadline may the purchaser, under the same terms, inform Jeff de Bruges that they are cancelling the order.
Refunds will be made using the same means of payment as those used when an order was placed, within 14 working days of our Consumer Services’ receipt of the purchaser’s letter or written document informing it of the cancellation of the order, unless the product has been delivered between the sending of the purchaser’s letter and its receipt.
When you place an order as a consumer, you benefit from the legal guarantee of conformity laid down in Articles L. 217-4 et seq. of the French Consumer Code.
You have two years from the delivery of the goods within which to act: you may choose between the repair or the replacement of the goods, subject to the cost conditions laid down in Article L. 217-9 of the French Consumer Code, and you are exempt from providing proof of the non-conformity of the goods during the two years following the delivery of the goods.
This legal guarantee applies independently of any commercial guarantee that may have been given.
You may also decide to implement the guarantee against hidden defects in goods as put forward in Article 1641 of the French Civil Code and, in this case, you may choose between the cancellation of the order and a price reduction in accordance with Article 1644 of the French Civil Code.
It is, however, expressly understood that, in accordance with Article 1 of these Conditions, the legal guarantee of conformity laid down in A L. 217-4 et seq. of the French Consumer Code does not apply to public or private legal entities, whether or not they are acting for professional purposes, or to natural persons acting for purposes that fall within their commercial, industrial, artisanal, professional or agricultural activities, including when they are acting in the name of or on behalf of another professional.
Returned products must be sent, accompanied by proof of purchase, to Jeff de Bruges Diffusion SAS — Parc du Bel Air, 12 avenue Joseph Paxton — 77164 Ferrières-en-Brie — FRANCE; please indicate whether you would like an exchange or a refund. To help us provide a better service, please indicate the reason for the return on the back of the delivery slip.
Refunds will be made using the same means of payment as those used when the order was placed. Refunds will be made within 30 days of receipt of your refund request.
In the event that the recipient of the order refuses to accept delivery for any other reason than a legitimate one (hidden defects, non-conformity), the order will not be refunded, except insofar as Article 4.3 of these Conditions applies.

Concerning the Jeff Club programme, Jeff de Bruges can in no way be held responsible in the event of the failure or poor performance of services to which members of the Jeff Club are entitled, should this be attributable to a member or to the unforeseeable or insurmountable fact of a third party to these conditions, or due to a case of force majeure.
