Entrepreneurs according to the statutory regulation (Section 14 BGB) are natural or legal persons or partnerships with legal personality who or which, when entering into a legal transaction, act in exercise of their trade, business or profession.

You may easily archive this information there by either downloading the T&Cs and saving the data collated in the ordering process within the Internet shop (www.justineleconte.com) with the aid of the functions in your browser or you can wait for the automatic confirmation of order receipt, which we will send you additionally by e-mail after completion of your order to the address you have indicated.

3. Contractual Partner, Language and Conclusion of Contract

3.1. Your contractual partner is Julie Ravat. In our Internet shop, contracts can only be concluded in English at present. Our advertised offers are without engagement as long as they do not become part of a contractual agreement. Prior to submitting your order, there is an opportunity for you to check and correct the data you have entered.

3.2. By submitting your order, you are entering into a binding contractual agreement. After your order has been received, an order confirmation will be sent to you automatically. This acknowledgement of receipt still does not constitute any acceptance of your order.

3.3. A binding contract comes into effect through our notification of acceptance, which is sent by separate e-mail; in the case of advance payment, it comes into effect on receipt of our payment request.

3.4. Subject to your statutory right of revocation, you are bound to your order for a maximum period of two business days.

3.5. Articles may be reserved in the case of advance payments for a maximum of 7 business days. If your payment is received after this period, delays in delivery may occur.

 

4. Prices, Shipping Costs

4.1 Orders in our Internet shop are subject to the prices listed in the offer at the time of ordering. The prices indicated are total prices, which means that they contain German value added tax at the statutory rate and any other price components.

For details of any supplementary shipping costs that may apply, please refer to the details in the Shop under Shipping Info. In the case of specially produced products and for business customers, we charge separate processing and shipping costs by way of exception. These costs are not assessed as a fixed sum and vary according to the extent of the order.

4.2 In the case of deliveries outside of Germany, additional costs may arise for the import into a third country (duties, any customs fees that may be due and turnover taxes on imports). These miscellaneous costs shall be borne by the Customer.

You will receive notification from us of when the goods were shipped. If delivery was not possible, you will receive notification from the transport company, providing details of further options.

5.3. The following delivery time estimations may vary during holiday seasons & bank holidays: within Germany, orders are generally delivered within 2 to 4 business days after receiving the order and receipt of advance payment, as applicable. We indicate any differences in delivery times on the relevant product page. Deliveries to other countries in Europe are delivered within 5 to 7 business days after receipt of the order and, if applicable, receipt of advance payment. Deliveries to other countries can take 7 – 21 business days. In the case of pre-orders, special attention is drawn to the date / calendar week from which the consignment will start. This is, however, provided solely for purposes of information and without any claim to accuracy.

If the goods are not available, we shall notify you immediately and refund any advance payment made without delay.

5.5. The delivery time shall be extended accordingly if the delivery is adversely affected by strike action or lock-outs as well as any other circumstances for which we are not responsible, in particular in cases of deliveries delayed due to force majeure. We shall notify the purchaser of the beginning and end of such obstructions without delay.

5.6. In the case of Consumers, the risk of accidental loss and deterioration of the sold goods in the case of a sales shipment passes to the Consumer when the person effecting the transport hands the goods over to the Consumer or to a recipient specified by the Consumer. This applies regardless of whether the shipment is insured or not. Otherwise, the risk of accidental loss and deterioration of the goods shall pass to the purchaser in the case of a sales shipment when the goods are delivered to the forwarding agent or other person or organization designated to execute the shipment.

 

6. Right of Revocation for Consumers

6.1. Below you will find information on the requirements and consequences of the statutory right of revocation in the case of mail order purchases.

 

Revocation instruction

Right of revocation

You have the right to cancel this contract within fourteen days without the need to provide any reasons.

The period of revocation is fourteen days from the day on which you or a third party appointed by you, who is not the carrier, took possession of the last item.

In order to exercise your right of revocation, you must notify us (Julie Ravat, c/o Justine Leconte, Lindenstrasse 74, 10969 Berlin - Germany, e-mail: info@justineleconte.com) by means of a clear declaration (e.g. a letter sent by post or an e-mail) of your decision to revoke this contract. You may use the attached sample of a revocation form, but this is not mandatory.

In order to observe the revocation period, it is sufficient for you to send notification of your decision to exercise your right of revocation before the revocation period expires.

 

Consequences of revocation

If you revoke this contract, we are obliged to refund all payments that we have received from you, excluding the payment costs (depending on the payment method selected) and including the delivery costs (with the exception of additional costs incurred by your choosing a form of delivery other than the most economical standard delivery that we offer), without delay and at the latest within twenty-one days of the date on which we received notification of your revocation of this contract. We shall use the same means of payment for this refund as that which you employed during the original transaction, unless another means has been explicitly agreed with you; under no circumstances will we charge you a fee for this refund. We can refuse a refund until we have received the goods or until you have furnished proof that you have sent back the goods, whichever is the earlier.

You shall return or hand over the goods without delay, and in any case at the latest within fourteen days of the date on which you notify us of the revocation of this contract, to Julie Ravat, c/o Justine Leconte, Lindenstrasse 74, 10969 Berlin, Germany. The time limit shall be deemed to have been complied with if you dispatch the goods before the period of fourteen days expires. We shall bear the costs of returning the goods. You are only obliged to pay any loss in value of the goods if such loss in value is attributable to the goods being handled in such a way as is not commensurate with an inspection of the quality, properties and function of the goods. 

6.2. Exceptions from right of revocation

Legal exceptions to the right of revocation are in force (Section 312g BGB), and we reserve the right to invoke the following regulations in relation to your contract:

The right of revocation does not apply to contracts for the supply of goods that are not prefabricated and the production of which is governed by an individual choice or decision by the Consumer or that are clearly tailored to the personal needs of the Consumer.

8. Retention of Title

The goods shall remain our property until payment has been made in full.

 

9. Guarantee, Complaints, Warranties

9.1. In the event of the goods being defective, a statutory warranty right (warranty) is in force for the Customer. Warranty claims against Entrepreneurs are restricted to a period of one year from delivery in the case of shipments of new goods.

9.2. Entrepreneurs must provide written notification of any apparent defects promptly, but at the latest within a period of 14 days from receipt of the goods. If defects are discovered that are not apparent, there is an obligation to provide notification promptly, at the latest within 14 days from discovery of the defect. Otherwise, the goods shall be deemed to have been approved even with regard to the specific defect. To be in compliance with this time limit, it is sufficient to post the notification in due time. By way of supplementation, Section 377 of the German Commercial Code (HGB) shall also apply to business people.

9.3. The limitations or exclusions of warranty liability specified in the provisions under 9.1 and 9.2 shall expressly exclude claims for damages based on defects involving injury to life, limb or health due to a breach of duty for which we are responsible, and claims for other damages resulting from an intentional or grossly negligent breach of duty on our part. The claims excluded above shall be subject to the statutory period of limitation of two years. Limitations and exclusions of warranty claims in general shall not apply where we have furnished a quality warranty or in the case of fraudulent concealment of a defect within the meaning of Section 444 BGB. In these cases, we shall also be liable in the event of simple negligence. Any manufacturer’s warranty shall also remain unaffected. The provision of Section 478 of the BGB concerning the recourse of the Entrepreneur when selling newly manufactured goods to a Consumer shall also remain unaffected. Any exclusion or limitation of liability on our part and any related exception as specified above shall also apply to the personal liability of our employees, staff, legal representatives and vicarious agents.

9.4. A statutory warranty right (warranty) is in force. In particular, in the event of defects subject to statutory warranty, we are obliged, within the warranty period, to ensure free supplementary performance, i.e. to remedy the defects or provide replacement. Consumers as contractual partners shall be free to choose whether supplementary performance shall take the form of remedying the defect or providing replacement. We shall be entitled to refuse the option of supplementary performance chosen, specifically where this involves a disproportionate amount of costs, whereas the other option of supplementary performance would not result in significant prejudice to the contractual partner. In the case of contracts with Entrepreneurs, the type of supplementary performance shall be at our discretion. If we are not prepared to or not able to remedy the defect or to provide a replacement or if this extends beyond a reasonable deadline due to reasons for which we are accountable or if the remedying of the defect or replacement delivery should otherwise fail, you are entitled to demand a corresponding reduction in the purchase price or to withdraw from the contract. If the statutory prerequisites apply, claims for damages may also arise. Withdrawal from the contract and provision of compensation instead of the full performance shall also be excluded if the defect only negligibly reduces the value or serviceability of the purchased item or works.

 

10. Data Protection Notes

Our data protection procedure is based on the legal provisions. You will find details on the capture and use of your personal data on our website under Privacy and cookies.

 

11. Applicable Law, Place of Jurisdiction

11.1 All legal transactions or other contractual relations with us shall be subject to German law. The UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG) and any other international conventions, even after incorporation into German law, shall not be applicable. This choice of law also means that the Customer habitually resident in one of the States of the EU or Switzerland shall not be deprived of the protection granted to him as a result of mandatory legal provisions of this State.

11.2 In business transactions with business people and with legal entities under public law, the place of jurisdiction for all legal disputes concerning these Terms and Conditions of Business and individual contracts concluded within their scope, including actions relating to bills of exchange and cheques, shall be our headquarters. In this case, we are also entitled to bring legal action at the headquarters of the Customer. Any exclusive place of jurisdiction shall remain unaffected by the provision above.

 

12. Severability Clause

In the event that any provisions of these General Terms and Conditions of Business should not be legally valid, either wholly or in part, or if they should lose their legal validity at a later date, this shall not otherwise affect the validity of the General Terms and Conditions of Business. The invalid provisions shall be replaced by the statutory provisions. The same shall apply if the General Terms and Conditions of Business prove to have an unforeseen omission.
