to reimburse the consumer for all sums paid, at the latest within fourteen days of the date of

agreed to assume the risk of excessively onerous performance may request renegotiation of the
contract from its co-contractor.

ARTICLE 10 - Anticipation

Any sum paid in advance of the price, deposit or advance payment, shall bear interest at the legal rate
from the expiry of a period of three months from the date of payment until the date of delivery or
performance of the service (art. L214-2).
A deposit corresponding to 50% of the total purchase price of the Products and/or Services ordered is
required when the Customer places the order or reserves the date of the Service. The balance of the
price must be paid no later than 30 days before the date of the service, on presentation of the invoice,
by bank transfer. International bank charges for bank transfers will be charged to the customer. Any

In the event of late payment and payment of sums due by the Customer beyond the above-mentioned
deadlines, and after the payment date shown on the invoice sent to the Customer, late payment
penalties calculated at the monthly rate of 10% of the Net amount excluding VAT of the purchase
price shown on the said invoice, will be automatically acquired by the Vendor, without any formality
or prior formal notice, and will result in the immediate payment of all sums owed by the Customer,
without prejudice to any other action that the Vendor may be entitled to take against the Customer in
this respect.
In addition, the Vendor reserves the right, in the event of non-compliance with the above payment
conditions, to suspend or cancel the delivery of orders in progress placed by the Customer.
The Customer shall not be charged any additional costs in excess of those incurred by the Vendor for
the use of a means of payment.

ARTICLE 4 - Terms of payment

Products and Services are supplied at the indicative prices shown on the Vendor's quotation, on the
day of immediate purchase or registration of the order by the Vendor. Prices are expressed in Euros,
net before tax. These prices are indicative and estimated, as they depend on variations in the purchase
price of raw materials, and the Vendor reserves the right to modify prices at any time. If the variation
exceeds 30% of the initial price, the Vendor will make a replacement proposal to remain within the
advertised prices.
An invoice is drawn up by the Vendor and given to the Customer upon collection or delivery of the
Products purchased immediately or ordered.


Orders for Products and immediate purchases are made in the following way: an estimate is drawn up
after the customer has validated the proposals.
Direct sales are considered final only after the Vendor has sent the customer confirmation of
acceptance of the order, and after the Vendor has received payment in full.
Orders for services are only considered definitive by the Service Provider after payment of a deposit of
50% of the total amount of the order. This deposit is definitively acquired by the Service Provider as
soon as the services have begun: the deposit covers the incompressible costs and charges for the
research, reservations and design work required to carry out and finalize the service.
It is the Customer's responsibility to check the accuracy of the order and to report any errors
The Vendor does not sell Products to professionals, but only to consumers or non-professionals, for
their personal needs. The Seller therefore reserves the right to refuse immediate purchases/orders of
the same Product in large quantities.
The Seller reserves the right to cancel or refuse any order from a Customer with whom there is a
dispute over payment of a previous order.
Cancellation conditions: orders may be cancelled up to 60 days before the event, after which time no

by way of damages, in compensation for the loss thus suffered. In the event of non-compliance with
cancellation deadlines, the full amount of the order will be due.

regardless of the date of delivery of the Products.
Except when the Customer himself collects the Products, in which case the transfer of risks is effected
at the time of handover of the Products ordered by the Vendor to the Customer, whatever the date of
transfer of ownership of the Products, the transfer of the risks of loss and deterioration relating thereto
will only be effected at the time when the Customer takes physical possession of the Products. The
Products therefore travel at the Customer's and the carrier's risk.

ARTICLE 7 - Seller's liability – Warranty

The Products offered for sale comply with the regulations in force in France and have performance
levels compatible with non-professional use.

or lack of maintenance on the part of the Customer, as well as in the event of abnormal use of the
Product, accident or force majeure.
- in the event of climatic conditions unsuitable for the services.
The Vendor's warranty is, in any event, limited to the replacement or reimbursement of Products that

ARTICLE 9 - Intellectual property

The Vendor remains the owner of all intellectual property rights to the photographs, presentations,

the Vendor's express, prior, written authorization, which may be conditional upon financial

By express agreement between the parties, these General Conditions of Sale and the operations
resulting from them are governed by and subject to French law.
These General Conditions of Sale are written in French.
In the event that they are translated into one or more foreign languages, only the French text will be
authentic in the event of a dispute.

14-3 - Provisions common to resolution cases

Since the services exchanged between the Parties from the conclusion of the contract until its
resolution can only be useful through the complete execution of the contract, they will give rise to full
payment of the service and products.
In any event, the injured Party may seek legal action for damages.

ARTICLE 14 - Termination of the contract

The Parties shall not be held liable if the non-performance or delay in performance of any of their
obligations as described herein results from a case of force majeure, within the meaning of article 1218
of the French Civil Code.
By express agreement, force majeure includes an administrative shutdown of business or any state of
emergency declared by the French government.
The Party observing the event must immediately inform the other Party of its inability to perform its
service and justify this to the latter. The suspension of obligations shall under no circumstances be a
cause of liability for non-performance of the obligation in question, nor lead to the payment of
damages or late penalties.
Performance of the obligation is suspended for the duration of the force majeure if it is temporary.
Consequently, as soon as the cause of the suspension of their mutual obligations disappears, the
Parties will make every effort to resume normal performance of their contractual obligations as soon
as possible. To this end, the Party prevented will notify the other of the resumption of its obligation by
registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt or by any extrajudicial act. If the impediment is
definitive, the present contract will be purely and simply terminated in accordance with the terms
defined in the article "Termination for force majeure".

consultation with the respective agendas.
Fees may be charged if a new floral design study is required (change of location, style, season, etc.).
The cost of this study could amount to a maximum of €1,500 net of tax.

ARTICLE 13 - Force majeure

Pursuant to article 1219 of the French Civil Code, each Party may refuse to perform its obligation,
even if it is due, if the other Party fails to perform its obligation and if such non-performance is
sufficiently serious, i.e. likely to jeopardize the continuation of the contract or fundamentally upset its
economic equilibrium. The suspension of performance will take effect immediately, on receipt by the
defaulting Party of the notification of default sent to it to this effect by the Party suffering the default,
indicating the intention to apply the exception of non-performance for as long as the defaulting Party
has not remedied the default noted, served by registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt or on
any other durable written medium allowing proof of dispatch.
This exception may also be used as a preventive measure, in accordance with the provisions of article
1220 of the French Civil Code, if it is clear that one of the Parties will not perform its obligations on
the due date, and that the consequences of such non-performance are sufficiently serious for the Party
suffering from the default.
This option is used at the risk and peril of the Party taking the initiative.
The suspension of performance will take effect immediately, on receipt by the Party presumed to be in
default of notification of the intention to apply the exception of preventive non-performance, until
such time as the Party presumed to be in default performs the obligation in respect of which a future
breach is manifest, served by registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt or on any other
durable written medium providing proof of posting.

However, if the impediment is definitive or persists until the day on which the service is performed,
the present contract will be purely and simply terminated in accordance with the terms and conditions
set out in the article Resolution for failure by a party to meet its obligations.

ARTICLE 12 - Non-performance exception

Notwithstanding the provisions of article 1221 of the French Civil Code, the Parties agree that in the
event of either Party failing to meet its obligations, the defaulting Party will not be entitled to seek
The defaulting Party may, in the event of non-performance of any of the obligations incumbent on the
other Party, request termination of the contract in accordance with the terms and conditions set out in
