PRODUCT CHARACTERISTICS AND PRECAUTIONS FOR USE, IMPORTANT WARNING
AURIS magnetic products have an active magnetic principle, often involving prolonged contact with the skin. AURIS invites the customer to meet with his or her physician before using the products sold to confirm the absence of contraindications and to advise him or her on the basis of his or her medical situation. In particular, the use of magnets is not recommended for people with pacemakers or for pregnant women during the first three months of pregnancy. Furthermore, AURIS products are not a substitute for medical treatment. AURIS declines all responsibility for the medical consequences of the products sold, the customer being solely responsible for their use. Magnets should not be knocked together as they may break and splinter. Be careful when handling the magnets, they can cause severe pinching. Do not place the magnets near electronic or computer equipment, bank cards, magnetic strips, watches... and any other device likely to be disturbed by a magnetic field. The magnetic north is marked according to international standards. Magnets are not toys and must be kept out of reach of children. The nickel undercoating required for plating neodymium magnets may cause allergies. This disclaimer releases AURIS from any liability. Unless otherwise stated, all items meet CE standards.

If a product is not available after the order has been placed, AURIS will inform the customer as soon as possible and indicate the waiting period.

RETENTION OF TITLE CLAUSE

The sales conditions and prices published by AURIS are valid for deliveries from ANDREZIEUX to metropolitan France. For deliveries outside metropolitan France, the customer must consult AURIS. The methods of shipment are determined by AURIS to best satisfy the customer. AURIS undertakes to deliver to the customer as soon as possible, i.e. in most cases and except for stock shortages, within 3/4 working days and at the latest within 30 days following registration of the order, which is usually the day of its receipt by AURIS. However, in the event of a delay in delivery exceeding the above-mentioned period, the consumer has the right to cancel the contract under the conditions of Article L 138-2 of the Consumer Code. In any case, the delivery within the deadline can only occur if the buyer is up to date with his obligations towards the seller.
OPTION OF RETRACTION
Upon receipt of the product, the customer must check the number, the condition and the conformity to his order. If the customer is not satisfied with the product he has received, he has a period of fourteen clear days from receipt to return it to AURIS - BP 90146 - 42163 ANDREZIEUX BOUTHEON CEDEX and obtain either the exchange of the product or its refund.
EXCHANGE OR REFUND
The request for exchange or refund must accompany the returned product and will be processed only after receipt by AURIS of the original product in good condition, complete, without traces of use and preferably in its original packaging in good condition. However, the original packaging is essential if it contains a serial number allowing the product to be identified. The customer is also reminded that, in accordance with the provisions of Article L 121-21-8, 5° of the Consumer Code, the right of withdrawal can not be exercised for the supply of goods that have been unsealed by the consumer after delivery and which can not be returned for reasons of hygiene or health protection. When a customer returns an item that he has paid for and requests a refund, the following terms and conditions will apply:
The product is returned of the customer's will: refund of the product and shipping costs, return shipping costs at the customer's expense.
The product is returned because of the responsibility of AURIS: reimbursement of the product, shipping costs and possible return costs (on the basis of the tracked colissimo). If the product requested in exchange is of a higher price than the returned product, the exchange will only be carried out after payment of the remaining price by the customer. Conversely, if the product requested in exchange is of a lower price than the returned product, the customer will receive a refund of the amount of the price difference or a credit note valid for one year. Gifts subject to a purchase amount can only remain the property of the customer if the amount of his order remains equal to or higher than the minimum required following the refund of one or several items.
No conventional warranty is attached to the products with the exception of electrical products or products with a mechanism for which a three-month warranty is offered by AURIS from the time of receipt by the customer. This warranty includes repair or replacement at the expense of AURIS if the product proves to be defective after examination by AURIS technicians and if the defect was not caused by misuse by the customer. The client is informed that the products marketed by AURIS are accompanied by instructions for use which must be scrupulously observed. In accordance with the provisions of Article L 133-3 of the French Consumer Code, AURIS reminds customers of the existence of the following guarantees:
LEGAL GUARANTEE OF CONFORMITY
Article L211-4 of the French Consumer Code: "The seller is required to deliver goods in conformity with the contract and is responsible for any defects in conformity existing at the time of delivery. He is also responsible for defects in conformity resulting from the packaging, the assembly instructions or the installation when the latter has been put at his charge by the contract or has been carried out under his responsibility." Article L 211-5 of the Consumer Code: "To be in conformity with the contract, the goods must :
Be fit for the purpose usually expected of similar goods and, where appropriate :
Correspond to the description given by the seller and possess the qualities that the seller has 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 labelling ;
Or have the characteristics defined by mutual agreement between the parties or be suitable for any special use sought by the buyer, brought to the attention of the seller and accepted by the latter.
Article L 211-7 of the French Consumer Code: "Defects of conformity that appear within six months from the delivery of the goods are presumed to exist at the time of delivery, unless proven otherwise."
Article L 211-8 of the Consumer Code: "The buyer is entitled to demand that the goods conform to the contract. However, he cannot contest the conformity by invoking a defect that he knew or could not ignore when he contracted. The same applies when the defect originates in the materials he himself supplied.
Article L 211-9 of the Consumer Code: "In case of lack of conformity, the buyer chooses between repairing or replacing the good."
However, the seller may not proceed according to the buyer's choice if this choice entails a cost that is clearly disproportionate to the other method, given the value of the goods or the importance of the defect. In such a case, he is obliged to proceed, unless it is impossible, according to the method not chosen by the buyer.
Article L 211-10 of the French Consumer Code: "If repair and replacement of the good are impossible, the buyer may return the good and have the price returned or keep the good and have part of the price returned."
Article L 211-12 of the Consumer Code: "The action resulting from the lack of conformity is prescribed by two years from the delivery of the good."
Legal guarantee of hidden defects:
Article 1641 of the Civil Code: "The seller is bound by the warranty for latent defects in the thing sold which render it unfit for the purpose for which it was intended, or which so diminish that purpose that the buyer would not have acquired it, or would have given only a lesser price, had he known of them."
Article 1648 of the Civil Code: "The action resulting from redhibitory defects must be brought by the purchaser within two years of the discovery of the defect.
The Vendor shall replace as soon as possible and at his own expense, the delivered products whose apparent defects or lack of conformity have been duly proven by the Client.
AURIS's warranty is limited to the reimbursement of the products actually paid by the Customer and the Seller shall not be considered responsible or defaulting for any delay or non-performance resulting from the occurrence of a case of force majeure usually recognized by French jurisprudence.
AURIS shall not be held liable for any indirect damage, operating loss, loss of profit, loss of opportunity, damage or expenses.
