ARTICLE 2: THE PRODUCTS
2.1 Description of the Products
The Products offered for sale by the Seller are those listed on the Site on the day of its consultation by the Consumer of the Site, and within the limits of available stocks.
EPQ reserves the right to withdraw the Products from sale at any time.
EPQ presents on the Site the Products for sale as well as their detailed descriptions in product sheets. The Products are described with the greatest possible care and accuracy. Nevertheless, the photographs and/or visuals on the Site are only indicative and are not contractual.
For any question relating to a Product or its use, it is therefore recommended to contact the Seller's customer service department, using the contact details provided in the following articles.
The Products comply with the French legislation in force. The Seller shall not be held liable in the event of non-compliance with the legislation of the country to which the Product is to be delivered. It is therefore up to the Consumer to check with the local authorities the possibilities of importing and/or using the Products he/she intends to order.
The Products are presented within the limits of available stocks and the Seller cannot guarantee the availability of the Products advertised on the Site.
At any time, EPQ reserves the right to modify or discontinue the sale of Products offered on the Site. However, such modifications shall not affect orders accepted by EPQ prior to the entry into force of such modifications.
In any case, in the event of total or partial unavailability of the Products after the order has been placed, the Consumer will be informed as soon as possible, by any means, of the unavailability of the Product and of the total or partial cancellation of the order.
In case of total cancellation
The Consumer's order will be automatically cancelled and his bank account will not be debited;
The Consumer will be informed by any means.
In case of partial cancellation
The Consumer's order will only be partially validated and his bank account will only be debited with the amounts corresponding to the available Products:
The rest of the order will be cancelled;
The Consumer will be delivered the available products.
In any case, if the Consumer's order was eligible for free delivery, the fact that the minimum rate is no longer reached does not deprive the Consumer of this free delivery.
ARTICLE 3 : PRICES
3.1 All prices are indicated in Qatari Riyals (QAR). The applicable prices are those indicated on the Site at the time the Consumer places his/her order. These costs are inclusive of all taxes, with the exception of the costs and duties related to transport, which will be invoiced in addition.
3.2 At any time, EPQ reserves the right to change its prices, without any further formality other than posting the modifications on the Site. However, such changes will not affect orders accepted by EPQ before the changes come into effect, subject to the availability of the Products ordered.
These prices do not include shipping costs, which are invoiced to the Consumer in addition to the price of the Products purchased. The shipping costs will be indicated before the Consumer places the order.
Furthermore, the prices announced on the Site do not take into account customs duties and other costs that may be associated with the import of the Products.
EPQ therefore advises Consumers to contact the local authorities to obtain, in addition, import taxes and duties.
The various shipping methods are set out in Article 6 below and are recalled on the Site; they may be modified at any time by EPQ. The Seller therefore advises Consumers to regularly consult the GTC available on the Site.
ARTICLE 4: ORDERING
4.1 How to order
By browsing the Site, the Consumer has the possibility to be aware of the Products offered for sale on the day of the consultation of the Site. Browsing the various pages of the Site does not commit the Consumer to an order.
During his navigation, the Consumer wishing to place an order will be able to do so by respecting the following stages:
Fill your virtual basket by clicking on the "Buy" icon, which appears next to each product viewed.
As soon as this operation has been carried out, the Consumer will see a message validating the addition of the item "Product successfully added to the basket", and the number of items in the basket will be displayed at the top right of the screen.
Continue your visit by clicking on "Continue shopping" or click on "Order" to see the items in your order displayed on the screen, including the total amount (without shipping costs), the type of products ordered and their quantity.
The Consumer may return to this order, complete it, modify it, or cancel it as long as it has not been validated. If the Consumer wishes to choose other Product(s), he/she will then simply click on "Continue shopping", being assured that the Product(s) he/she has just selected is/are well kept in the "Order" section.
If the customer has a discount code, he can enter it in his virtual basket. The total amount of the order will then be automatically recalculated.
Once the selection of Products is complete, the Consumer can validate the order by clicking "Order".
A new web page will then open inviting the Consumer to :
login with email and password to order using your customer account or
order by creating a customer account.
The Consumer will then have to communicate his/her contact details, by informing with exactitude the form placed at his disposal. In particular, he/she undertakes to indicate an address to which the delivery can be made during working hours, as well as his/her surname(s) and e-mail address.
For any order delivered outside the European Union, the price will necessarily be exclusive of tax.
EPQ may not under any circumstances be held responsible for the inaccuracy of information provided by the Consumer.
Finally, the Consumer will have to choose the type of delivery desired (home delivery or store pick-up) and the method of payment (Mastercard, VISA, Debit Cards - NAPS). At the bottom of this same page, an order summary will contain all the information relating to this order, namely the nature, quantity and price of the Products and the total amount of the order (including shipping costs).
After having taken note of the status of his order, the Consumer will be invited :
- Either to click on the "Confirm order" button in order to proceed with the payment of his/her order, in accordance with the provisions of article 4 of these GTC;
Or click on the "Order" button in the top left-hand navigation module, in order to modify the characteristics of his order and/or the information relating to his personal details;
By clicking on the "Checkout" button, the Consumer must first read the GTC, and then tick a box opposite the message "I declare that I have read and accept the general terms and conditions of sale fully and without reservation".
Once these GTC have been accepted and the order confirmed, a web page of Myfatoorah - secure payment service provider - will open.
The Consumer must then proceed to the payment of his order.
It is reminded that purchases made on the Site are reserved for non-professional private customers for their own use, which is why EPQ only sells its products in quantities corresponding to the usual average needs of a household. In accordance with Article L121-11 of the French Consumer Code, EPQ reserves the right to refuse or cancel, for legitimate reasons, any order for which the number of products or the amount to be paid (for a single order or for several orders combined) does not correspond to the usual average use of a household, any order which suggests that an economic activity is being carried out by the purchaser in relation to the products ordered, or, more generally, any order which is anormal in the sense of the case law applicable in this area.
EPQ may not be held responsible in the event of the Site being unavailable at the time of the order, for any reason whatsoever.
4.2 Order confirmation
4.2.1. Sales training
Once the order has been confirmed and payment validated in accordance with the terms and conditions set out in article 5 below (in the case of payment by bank card, provision of the bank card number, its expiry date and, where applicable, the visual cryptogram), a printable and recordable summary of the Consumer's order will be displayed, mentioning, in particular, the references of the order.
At this stage, the Consumer will not be able to modify his order.

EPQ retains full and complete ownership of the Product(s) ordered until full payment of the full price in principal, including costs, taxes and mandatory contributions.

If the Consumer fails to reply within fifteen (15) days of EPQ
sending the request or for any other legitimate reason, the order will be automatically cancelled and EPQ will proceed as soon as possible to reimburse the Consumer to the bank account debited at the time of the order.
4.3 Proof of order
In general, e-mails shall be deemed authentic between the Parties, in the same way as the automatic registration systems on the Site, particularly as regards the nature of the order.
The computerised records kept in the computer systems of EPQ and its partners will be considered as proof of communications, orders and payments between the Parties.
At any time, the Consumer may access the electronic contract concluded between the Consumer and EPQ, if necessary in accordance with the rules of common law.

The Products ordered by the Consumer will be delivered to the postal address given by the Consumer when ordering online, by the Postal Services or by private carriers.
The Consumer may follow the progress of his delivery on the Site, by clicking on his customer account.
As delivery is carried out by a third party service provider, EPQ cannot be held responsible in any way if the non-performance or poor performance of this obligation is attributable to the Consumer, to the unforeseeable or insurmountable act of a third party to the contract or to a case of force majeure.
The Consumer shall also bear the consequences (delay in delivery, impossibility of delivery, return of the Products to EPQ, additional transport costs) resulting, where applicable, from the erroneous and/or incomplete nature of the information provided by the Consumer for delivery and/or the absence of the Consumer at the time of delivery.

In the event of partial delivery, the delivery could be carried out in several times, and the Consumer will be able to cancel his order only for the undelivered balance.
Any delay in delivery must be reported as soon as possible by the Consumer by e-mail to email@example.com, so that EPQ can carry out an investigation with the postal services or the carrier. The Consumer must be informed that the time taken to carry out an enquiry is random, as EPQ has no control over its execution.
