6. Legal guarantee
Mexican law grants you the following rights and guarantees.
Guarantee of conformity
According to the Consumer Code, the seller is responsible for delivering goods that conform to the contract and is also liable for any lack of conformity existing at the time of delivery. The seller is also liable for any lack of conformity resulting from the packaging, the assembly instructions or the installation when the latter was made his responsibility by the contract or was carried out under his responsibility.
According to the Consumer Code, the action resulting from the lack of conformity is prescribed by two years from the delivery of the goods.
In case of defect, the consumer is entitled to ask Ariane’s Line to repair or replace the item, according to the Consumer Code. Ariane’s Line may nevertheless decide not to comply with the customer’s choice if this choice entails costs that are clearly disproportionate to the other options, given the value of the product or the seriousness of the defect.
If it is not possible to repair or replace the product, the consumer may choose between an appropriate reduction of the price or the cancellation of the contract, in accordance with the Consumer Code. During the 24-month period following delivery of the product, the customer will not have to prove the existence of the defect.
Guarantee for hidden defects
The consumer can also invoke the guarantee for hidden defects as defined in the Civil Code.
According to this article, the seller is liable for hidden defects in the item sold which make it unfit for the purpose for which it was intended, or which so diminish that purpose that the buyer would not have acquired it, or would have paid a lower price for it, had he known about them.
In this case, the consumer may choose between rescinding the contract or requesting a reduction in price, in accordance with the Civil Code.
7. Shipping costs and prices
7.1.1 Once you have provided your delivery address and placed the order, the relevant prices and delivery charges will be sent to you before shipping on the definitive invoice.
7.2 The prices shown are the final prices in USD, including VAT.
7.3 We do not only deliver by post. It is possible to collect the order in person.
7.4 The delivery charge is calculated before shipping. You will be informed when receiving the definitive invoice, just before shipping
8. Damage in transit
If the items have suffered visible damage in transit, please inform the carrier as soon as possible and contact us immediately. Failure to report such damage or to contact us will not affect your rights, including your guarantees. However, it will help us to file a claim with the carrier or its insurance company.
9. Legal right of withdrawal
YOU HAVE A LEGAL RIGHT OF WITHDRAWAL WHEN YOU PURCHASE OUR PRODUCTS:
We regret that you wish to cancel your order. But of course this is not a problem. If the product has not been used and the seal that guarantees the hygiene of the product has not been damaged, you can return the product to us.
First of all, we would like to inform you that you can use our return label, which is available from our support centre.
If you have any difficulties, you can also contact our customer service at firstname.lastname@example.org. Help us avoid unnecessary costs and return your items as soon as possible. Do not send them back without a return label.
The right of cancellation only applies to consumers in accordance the mexican Consumer Code.
Right of cancellation
The customer has the right to cancel the contract within fourteen (14) days without giving any reason. The cancellation period is fourteen (14) days from the day on which the customer or any other party designated by the customer other than a carrier has taken possession of the last item.
In order to exercise its right of cancellation, the customer must inform us (Ariane’s Line, e-mail: email@example.com) by an unambiguous statement (simple mail or e-mail) stating its decision to cancel the contract. The customer can use the attached cancellation form, but this is not an obligation.
In order to comply with the cancellation period, it is sufficient for the customer to send a notification concerning the exercise of his right of cancellation before the expiry of the cancellation period.
Consequences of cancellation
If the customer cancels the contract, we will immediately refund all payments received, including delivery costs (with the exception of any additional costs incurred as a result of the customer’s choice of a delivery method other than the cheapest standard delivery offered by us) and within fourteen (14) days at the latest from the day we receive the notification of cancellation of the contract. We will use the same payment method for the refund as the customer used for the transaction, unless explicitly agreed with the customer. No fee will ever be charged to the customer.
Refunds may be suspended until the earlier of the time we receive the returned items or until the customer provides proof that they have returned the items.
The customer must return the items promptly, and no later than thirty (30) days from the day he informed us of the cancellation of the contract:
Calle 52 entre av70 y 75
77712 Playa del Carmen
Mexico (Quintana Roo)
The deadline is met if the customer sends the items before the expiry of the period of fourteen (14) days.
The client will bear the cost of return. Ariane’s Line reserves the right to modify these terms for the benefit of the client. The customer is only responsible for the loss of value of the items if this loss of value can be attributed to handling on his part that was not necessary to inspect the nature, qualities and function of the items.
(If the customer wishes to cancel the contract, he/she must complete this form and return it to us).

Exceptions to the right of withdrawal
The right of withdrawal does not apply to distance purchases of
sealed goods which, for reasons of hygiene and safety, cannot be returned if the sealed packaging has been opened after delivery;

10. Extension of the right of return
10.1.1 For purchases made on our website (www.arineslines.com), we freely grant our customers a right of return of thirty (30) days in total in addition to their statutory right of cancellation (see section 9.1). Customers may withdraw from the contract after the expiration of the statutory right of cancellation by returning the items to us at their own expense within thirty (30) days of receiving them, to the following address
Calle 52 entre av70 y 75
77712 Playa del Carmen
Mexico (Quintana Roo)
A timely shipment is sufficient to meet the deadline. This right of return can be exercised provided that the items are still in their original packaging, i.e. the packaging is not damaged and with all accessories, the delivery note or the return note must be filled in and attached, as well as any guarantee sheet. Sealed and shrink-wrapped products can only be returned if the packaging has not been opened. Seals must not have been damaged.
10.2 If the items received are in good condition, we will refund the customer the purchase price after inspection of the items. The refund will always be made by the same method of payment used for the purchase. However, for deliveries of goods with a value of less than EUR 50.00, we will deduct EUR 3.95 from the refunded amount for shipping costs or will invoice the customer for this amount at a later date and deduct it from the refunded amount if the value of the order after the return of the items falls below EUR 50.00. The same conditions apply to shipping costs that deviate from the standard rate (3.95 euros) (e.g. express delivery).
10.3 Compliance with our rules on the contractually agreed additional right of return (freely granted) does not affect the statutory right of cancellation (see 9.1) which remains in force independently of this. The conditions set out for the statutory right of cancellation apply only until its expiry. The contractual right to return goods (granted voluntarily) does not limit your statutory warranty rights, which remain in full force.
11.1 We are fully liable to you for any breach of our obligations as set out in these terms and conditions. We are only liable for direct damages.
11.2 In the event of a breach of our obligations, our liability is limited to foreseeable damage, i.e. damage that was foreseen or could have been foreseen at the time the contract was concluded. We shall never be liable in the event of force majeure, as defined in Article 1218 of the French Civil Code.
12. Disposal of batteries
Batteries or accumulators may be part of the products we ship, so we would like to draw your attention to the following points:
Batteries or accumulators must not be disposed of with household waste. Instead, you are legally obliged to return used batteries and accumulators. Used batteries may contain hazardous substances which, if not stored or disposed of properly, can cause damage to the environment or your health. Batteries also contain valuable raw materials such as iron, zinc, manganese and nickel and can be recycled.
You can take used batteries to a municipal collection point or return them free of charge to your local shops.
Returns to shops are limited to normal quantities for an end consumer and to batteries that the distributor has in stock or has stored in new condition.
The crossed-out wheeled bin symbol means that batteries and accumulators should not be disposed of with household waste. Other symbols may be found below this one. They have the following meanings:
Pb: The battery contains lead
Cd: Battery contains cadmium
Hg: Battery contains mercury
13. Disposal of electrical equipment
According to the Environmental Code, we take back your used electrical and electronic equipment within the limits of the quantity and type of equipment ordered. This means that you can return a used electrical or electronic device free of charge when you buy a new product of the same type.
We would like to point out to owners of electrical and electronic equipment that, in accordance with current regulations, used electrical equipment must be disposed of separately from household waste. In fact, the WEEE regulation aims to minimise the amount of waste disposed of by households with their household waste. Separating waste electrical and electronic equipment from other waste allows it to be treated. Hazardous substances can be removed and a large amount can be recycled rather than sent to landfill. The crossed-out wheeled bin symbol below and on used electrical and electronic equipment also refers to the obligation to dispose of it separately:
You can also drop off your old electrical and electronic equipment at a collection point or use any other collection system set up by your municipality. For more information, please contact your municipality.
The consumer concerned is responsible for the deletion of personal data from the used electrical appliance that is to be disposed of.
14. Data protection
16.1 Information on data protection can be found in our special notice: www.arianesline.com/privacy-policy.
15. Dispute resolution
15.1 If we are unable to resolve a dispute with you through our internal complaints procedure, we will notify you and provide you with information about our alternative dispute resolution system, including the contact details below, in accordance with the regulations.
We stress that we do not wish to and are not obliged to take part in any dispute resolution procedure before a consumer arbitration board.
15.2 Our customer service can be contacted at: email@example.com.
16. Language of the Contract, Storage of the Contract Text and Final Provisions
