The prices applied are those in force on the day of ordering. All prices are listed in euros, including VAT but excluding preparation and shipping fees, as set out in article 5 below. 
- The shipping costs will be stated in the “basket” at the order-validation stage.
MILLET MOUNTAIN GROUP SAS reserves the right to change its prices at any time, but products are billed per the prices that apply when the customer validates their order.

Payment method:
- By bank (credit/debit) card (Visa, Carte Bleue, Mastercard, Amex, Maestro): in this case, payment is made on the Lafuma website. This means that none of the customer’s banking information passes through the website www.lafuma.com.
Payment by bank card is therefore fully secure (SSL). The order is recorded and validated once the bank agrees to the payment.

Security: 
The details of the bank card used are encrypted using the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) protocol and never circulate unencrypted on the network. Payment is made directly to the bank. MILLET MOUNTAIN GROUP SAS in no event has access to these details, and does not hold them on its servers.


Retention of title clause: 
The products remain the property of MILLET MOUNTAIN GROUP SAS until the price is fully received by MILLET MOUNTAIN GROUP SAS. However, once the products have been delivered, the risks relating to them are transferred to the customer.

Failure to pay:

MILLET MOUNTAIN GROUP SAS reserves the right to refuse to carry out a delivery or to honor an order from a customer with whom a payment dispute is pending. 

Anti-fraud checks:
To ensure that transactions are secure, and to satisfy the concern of the greatest number of people to prevent mail-order fraud, MILLET MOUNTAIN GROUP SAS conducts checks on orders that have been validated on its e-commerce website www.lafuma.com. The purpose of these checks is to protect MILLET MOUNTAIN GROUP SAS from improper distance-paying practices. As part of its checking procedures, MILLET MOUNTAIN GROUP SAS may ask the customer to transmit documents required to unblock their order: proof of identity, proof of residence, proof of debit in their name, etc. The purpose of this is to ensure that the customer’s identity and place of residence are genuine.

These requests are made by email, and the customer must send the requested proof by email so that their order can be delivered. If the customer cannot provide proof, or if the documents provided do not allow verification of the ordering party’s identity or that their place of residence is genuine, MILLET MOUNTAIN GROUP SAS may cancel the order to guarantee the security of online transactions.

Article L211-5 of the French Consumer Code: to conform to the contract, the product must: 1º Be suitable for the purpose usually associated with such a product, and, if applicable: - correspond to the description given by the seller and have the features that the seller presented to the buyer in the form of a sample or model; - have the features that a buyer might reasonably expect it to have considering the public statements made by the seller, the producer or his representative, including advertising and labeling; 2º Or have the features defined by mutual agreement between the parties or be suitable for any special requirement of the buyer which was made known to the seller and which the latter agreed to.
Article L211-12 of the French Consumer Code: Action resulting from lack of conformity lapses two years after delivery of the product.
Article 1641 of the French Civil Code: A seller is bound to a warranty on account of the latent defects of the thing sold which render it unfit for the use for which it was intended, or which so impair that use that the buyer would not have acquired it, or would only have given a lesser price for it, had he known of them.
