Article 4 - Purchase of an item on the Site
4.1 Payment methods and content
When a Buyer selects an item he wants to purchase, he must validate his order by making payment by secure electronic payment directly on the IconPrincess website.
L’Acheteur peut payer soit par PayPal, soit par carte bancaire, soit par virement bancaire immédiat avec Fintecture. L’ensemble des phases du paiement électronique est sécurisé par un cryptage des données évitant toute interception des informations par un tiers.
To benefit from the payment by PayPal, the Buyer must have a PayPal account. It is then subjected to the general conditions of use of PayPal.
By choosing the payment by PayPal, the Buyer is automatically directed to his PayPal account.
IconPrincess may ask the Buyer for proof of identity (copy of identity card and/or proof of address). IconPrincess reserves the right to suspend an order while waiting for these documents to be received.
IconPrincess cannot be held responsible in the event of fraudulent use of the payment methods used.
Under no circumstances does IconPrincess store or have access to Purchasers' credit card information.
The amount paid by the Buyer includes the price of the item plus any shipping costs if the shipping address is outside metropolitan France or Europe.
The shipping rates are those of Colissimo and can be consulted on their website.
Any order placed on the Site and delivered outside metropolitan France and Europe may be subject to customs duties which the buyer must pay upon receipt of the package. Similarly, if the Seller has shipped an Item from a country outside the European Union to France, customs duties may apply and are the responsibility of the Buyer.
For buyers in the French Overseas Departments, there is a specific tax called dock dues that they must pay upon receipt of the package.
4.2 Confirmation of the order
As soon as the buyer has validated his purchase, IconPrincess notifies the Seller by email and asks him to confirm the availability of the item.
The Seller then has 48 hours to confirm the availability of his item to IconPrincess by return email.
In the event that the item is no longer available or if no confirmation of availability has been provided within 48 hours, the sale is cancelled, and the Buyer is immediately and fully refunded by the same means of payment he used to order. However, PayPal as well as Stripe may take a few days to make the money transfer.
If the item is available, the Seller receives the Buyer's destination address sent by IconPrincess and must ship the order properly packaged within two business days. The Seller undertakes not to insert any advertising for itself or anyone else in any form whatsoever.
4.3 Method and delivery time of the item
Delivery is made by La Poste, by "Colissimo Suivi". When the order is shipped, the Seller must imperatively communicate the Colissimo tracking number to IconPrincess by email to firstname.lastname@example.org who will communicate it to the Buyer.
As an indication, the delivery times communicated by La Poste are 2 to 3 working days for France, Andorra and Monaco. For foreign countries it is 4 to 8 working days.
If the buyer is absent at the time of delivery, a notice of passage is left in his mailbox and the package will be waiting for him at his post office.
Neither IconPrincess nor the carrier can be held responsible for the impossibility of delivery due to inaccuracy in the shipping address.
In the event of force majeure, preventing partial or total delivery, this period shall be extended by the proven duration of the force majeure. In particular, strikes, road, rail or air network blockages, whatever the cause, and any event or event clearly beyond the control of IconPrincess, are considered as cases of force majeure.
The buyer is required to verify, in the presence of the postal employee or the delivery person, the condition of the packaging of the goods and its contents upon delivery. In the event that the buyer has any doubt whatsoever about the condition or contents of the package, he must check the condition of the goods received and issue precise, dated and signed reservations. In the absence of reservations, a package is deemed accepted by the buyer and can no longer be contested.
If the package is lost by the carrier, it is the Seller's responsibility to file a claim with the carrier. In the event that the package is indicated as "delivered" and the Purchaser has not received it, it is the Purchaser's responsibility to open a complaint with the postal services.
The Buyer is required to confirm receipt of the item within 48 hours. Failing this, IconPrincess will consider that the Purchaser has received the item and is satisfied with it. IconPrincess will then proceed to finalize the sale and pay the Seller the amounts due.
Article 5 - Cancellation
In the context of a sale between two private individuals in France, the provisions of the Consumer Code do not apply. Thus, in principle, you do not have the withdrawal period of 14 clear days from the receipt of the article (Law 2014-344 known as the Hamon Law).
However, IconPrincess has implemented a Money Back Guarantee if the Buyer is not satisfied with the item ordered or if he/she has changed his/her mind regarding his/her purchase on the Site AND if he/she resides in France or in a country of the European Union.
Within 48 hours of receipt of the Item (including weekends and holidays excluding the delivery day), the Purchaser must confirm receipt and indicate whether he is satisfied or dissatisfied with it by email to email@example.com. The order number must be mentioned in the email.
In the event that the Purchaser indicates that he is not satisfied with his purchase, the authentication procedure of the item will be cancelled, if there is one in progress.
If the Purchaser does not confirm within the specified time limit, IconPrincess will consider that the Purchaser has received the item and is satisfied with it. IconPrincess will then finalize the sale and pay the Seller the amounts due.
If the Purchaser indicates that he is satisfied with the Item before the expiry of the 48-hour period, he will no longer be able to benefit from the Satisfied or Refunded Guarantee even if the 48-hour period has not expired.
5.1 Reason for dissatisfaction:
When the Buyer declares himself/herself dissatisfied, he/she must indicate the reason(s) for his/her dissatisfaction by email to firstname.lastname@example.org : email@example.com :
- "Defective/damaged item" or
- "Incorrect item received" or
- "Change of mind" or a "Purchase reversal".
"Change of mind" or a "Purchase reversal". In case the item is declared "Defective/damaged item" or "Incorrect item received", photos of the item at the time of delivery of the package must be provided to Iconprincess. We insist that these photos must be irrefutable proof that the item was damaged during transport and not by the Buyer - the package must be opened in the presence of the delivery person or letter carrier and the contents verified.
5.2 Return of the item:
To receive a refund, the Buyer must return the item to IconPrincess.
When the Buyer has reported his dissatisfaction within the time limit, he has a period of 48 hours (excluding weekends and holidays) to return the item to ICONPRINCESS SAS according to the following process:
- By Colissimo or other reliable service
- To one of the 2 following centers - the address will be confirmed by return email: either '46 ruelle de l'Eglise - 69620 Ternand, FRANCE' or '1 rue du marais - 29730 Treffiagat, FRANCE
- With the tracking number which must be communicated by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
- The item must be carefully packaged and the return of the item is the responsibility of the Purchaser.
IconPrincess will not accept empty packages or damaged items and will consider that the item has not been returned.
5.3 Buyer's refund and costs attributable to the Seller:
There are 2 cases to consider:
A. If the reason for dissatisfaction is found to be "defective/damaged item", the Buyer will be fully refunded. The shipping costs as well as any PayPal or Stripe commissions paid by IconPrincess will be charged to the Seller.
B. If the reason for dissatisfaction is simply a change of opinion or a reversal of purchase, the shipping costs will be borne by the Purchaser.
IMPORTANT: in case B, if the Buyer paid the item by PayPal or Stripe, the commissions charged by these organizations are deducted from the refunded amount
If the item does not conform to its description on the Site, or if it is defective/damaged, or if it is not the correct item ordered, or if it proves to be a counterfeit item (Iconprincess-Entrupy and/or Authentifier.com certification), the SELLER agrees to refund the shipping costs as well as the commissions possibly paid to PayPal or Stripe before the item is returned to him.
IconPrincess shall not refund the Buyer until the Seller has been notified that the goods have been received.
