However that may be, Eusamex may not be held liable for improper use of the product by the web user, for normal wear and tear of the product, or for failure to maintain it.
9.2 Nonconformity (see extracts from Civil Code in Schedule 2)

However, in the event of nonconformity of the product delivered, the web user must inform Eusamex Customer Service by e-mail clearly describing the nonconformity noticed.
9.3.3 Consideration of the web user’s application
Eusamex undertakes, in the light of the application made by the web user, to exchange or reimburse the product to the web user, subject to it being returned in its original packaging.

Subject to the consent of the web user, Eusamex may suggest a credit note instead of exchange or reimbursement.
The stipulations laid down in this Article do not affect your rights to withdrawal as provided for in Article 10.
10 – RIGHT OF WITHDRAWAL
In application of Article L.121-20 and following of the Consumer Code, the web user enjoys a period of fourteen days from the receipt date of the order to exercise their right to withdrawal.
