3. Produits

The products are displayed on the website in accordance with legal requirements and as accurately as possible. However, the photographs, videos, charts and drawings of the products are only illustrations;  a perfect representation of the products cannot be guaranteed, particularly where slight differences in colour and materials are concerned, depending on the specific hardware and software used. L’Autrement Dit cannot be held responsible for the inaccuracy of photographs on its website. L’Autrement Dit invites the Customer to refer to the description of each product for precisions. L’Autrement Dit expressly reserves the right to, at any time, add new products, to remove all or some of the products sold or displayed on the website, to change their display or cease marketing them on their website without the obligation to warn the Customer in advance.

4. Commandes

4.1 Management and setting up of an account

When a Customer places an order, the information followed by an asterisk is required, as it is necessary for the order to be processed. The Customer is expected to provide complete, correct and up-to-date information. Should the information be incomplete or incorrect, L’Autrement Dit reserves the right purely and simply to cancel the order and eventual payment. In case of a mistake in the Customer’s address, L’Autrement Dit is not responsible for eventual delivery problems of the order. The Customer may at any time change his account details. The Customer will receive his invoice by email after confirming the order and after L’Autrement Dit has recorded the transaction.

4.2 Placing and confirming an order

Any order for a product implies knowledge and express acceptance of these terms and conditions of sale, without however this acceptance being conditional on the Customer’s handwritten signature. Order-taking on the site is subject to strict compliance with the procedure described below and accomplished online through a succession of different pages, indicating the different steps the Customer must take to have his order confirmed by L’Autrement Dit. To make up a shopping basket, the Customer chooses the products and quantities he wishes to order and confirms by clicking on ‘Add’ or ‘Add to the basket’. On the screen marked My Basket, the Customer can at any time delete a product, change the quantities or return to the shop. Simply adding a product to the basket does not confirm the order as the product may become unavailable in the time between its addition to the basket and the confirmation of the order by the Customer. L'Autrement Dit undertakes to fulfil orders received while stocks last. To confirm the order and pay, the Customer must click on the confirm button. A summary of the order indicates the products chosen, the delivery cost and the total cost. By clicking on the order button, the Customer may confirm the delivery address. The final page allows online payment. After confirmation of the order by the credit card company, the Customer receives a confirmation of the order by email at the address given in the order.  L'Autrement Dit will inform the Customer of possible stock shortages which may affect the order. Unless proven otherwise, the data recorded by L'Autrement Dit’s automatic recording procedures constitute proof of the nature, content and date of the order. L'Autrement Dit reserves the right to ask the Customer for proof of identity to confirm delivery. This check is not automatic. When it is carried out, the Customer is informed by email within 5 days (excepting Sundays and public holidays) of the confirmation of the order. L'Autrement Dit reserves the right to cancel a Customer’s order in the case of the Customer’s breach of contractual obligations in this order and/or the previous order. The information provided by the Customer when the order is placed is binding: in case of error in the delivery information, L'Autrement Dit may not be held responsible for failure to deliver.

5. Livraison

The delivery will be made by L'Autrement Dit carriers in the areas serviced by L'Autrement Dit. The delivery will be made within 15 days of the order when the products ordered are delivered to the addressee. It is the Customer’s responsibility to check the package on arrival. In the event of damage, if he wishes to complain about the delivery, it is up to the Customer to give a clear and precise explanation on the delivery order of the person delivering his package, without prejudice to his right to make an appeal on the defectiveness of the product delivered. The Customer will then send an email to the following address: info@lautrementdit.net. Should this procedure not be followed as indicated above, the order will be considered accepted and the products delivered. In the case of apparent damage, the Customer has the right to return goods as stated in Article 5. In the case of a technical product, the Customer will particularly check that the object delivered is functioning properly and read the instruction manual. If the Customer wishes delivery to be made to 2 places, he should place 2 orders with the connected delivery charges. Should the Customer be absent when the delivery is made, the carrier will leave a delivery notice in the letter box, asking the addressee to contact the transporter or to follow the procedure set out in the delivery notice.  


The Customer will have a link allowing him to follow his order and, if necessary, contact the transporter. If he has not made contact in 5 days, the order will be returned to L'Autrement Dit’s warehouse and deemed complete and valid without a refund to the Customer. The Customer may request that L'Autrement Dit make another delivery within 5 days without further charge. If the delivery is to a company, the names of the company and the person to contact must be given. 


In the event of force majeure, L'Autrement Dit has discharged its obligation to deliver. L'Autrement Dit will keep the Customer informed within a reasonable timeframe of any event of force majeure likely to disrupt delivery. However, if 8 days after the date of the requested delivery the Product has not been delivered for any reason other than force majeure, the sale may be cancelled at the Customer’s email request addressed to info@lautrementdit.net. Delivery costs are given for the countries displayed in the drop-down menu and in the order process. For other countries contact us at the following email address: info@lautrementdit.net. 

6. Withdrawal – Exchange – Refund

The consumer has 14 days from the effective delivery (the Withdrawal Period) to exercise the right of withdrawal without having to give a reason; only paying the return and delivery fees. If the Withdrawal Period expires on a Saturday, Sunday or public holiday, this period is prolonged until the first working day. If the right of withdrawal is exercised, L'Autrement Dit is only liable to refund the amount of the order. The refund is payable by L'Autrement Dit within a maximum of 15 days after the order’s return to the L'Autrement Dit warehouse, by credit to the account which was debited for the order. L'Autrement Dit reserves the right to first suggest to the Customer a refund in the form of a credit voucher for a new order. In the event of a request for exchange or reimbursement, the Customer returns the new article, preferably in its original packaging, with all accessories, instruction manuals and documentation, the invoice, the Customer number and the order number to the following address:

L'Autrement Dit - Returns

Chaussée de St Hubert 91 A
6640 Morhet
BELGIUM

Products returned incomplete, damaged, used or dirtied by the Customer, which were not mentioned on delivery, will not be taken back, exchanged or refunded. L'Autrement Dit does not accept parcels with postage due. All risks related to the product’s return are the responsibility of the Customer.

7. Prix

The price on each article’s tag is in euros; the delivery charge is not included; this is indicated on the basket’s method of delivery page. Prices may be changed at any time, without warning. The products are invoiced on the basis of the rates in force, at the time of the order. In the summary of the shopping basket and order confirmation, the total price is the final price, including all taxes and VAT. This price includes the articles’ price and the delivery fee (handling charges, packing, preservation and transport and delivery fees).  

8. Facturation et paiement

8.1. The price of the products is payable in full by either of the means of payment suggested on the website the day the order is placed (payment online or by bank transfer).

8.2. Protection against unauthorized use of payment instruments for online transactions, especially in case of hacking, as well as against eventual disputes related to order payments are insured by Paybox.

8.3. An order confirmed by the Customer only becomes effective when the secured bank payment centre and Paybox have approved the transaction. If either the secured bank payment centre or Paybox refuses, then the order is automatically cancelled and the Customer informed by email. 

8.4. Information concerning the order is subject to automated data processing for which Paybox is responsible. Automated data processing is aimed at fighting bank card fraud. Paybox and L'Autrement Dit are the recipients of the data relating to your order. A defect in the transmission of personal data with the order will prevent the execution and analysis of the transaction. In the event of fraudulent use of a credit card, an incorrect declaration or an error, the address and order associated with the outstanding payment may be recorded in a payment incident file.

8.5. An invoice is written for each delivery and sent to the Customer by email. Any claim concerning the invoices must be brought to the attention of L'Autrement Dit by email to info@lautrementdit.net within 10 days of reception. Failing this, they are considered to be unreservedly accepted. The Customer is invoiced with the price on the order confirmation sent by email by L'Autrement Dit.

8.6. In the case of a bank transfer from outside the European Union, all bank charges are paid by the Customer.  

9. Intellectual Property 

L’Autrement Dit remains the sole and single holder of the intellectual property rights relating to the Product as well as the service(s) provided. The Customer does not acquire, through the purchase of Products or provision of Services, any intellectual property rights whatsoever over Products bought and/or Services provided. « L’AUTREMENT DIT » is a Benelux trademark, the exclusive property of L’AUTREMENT DIT. Nothing in the current general terms and conditions of sale can be interpreted as operating any transfer of intellectual property rights to the Customer’s benefit. The Customer may not carry out any act which might, directly or indirectly, infringe the intellectual property rights of L’AUTREMENT DIT.

10. Limited liability of L'Autrement Dit

While the greatest care and precision have been exercised in providing online information, the description of products for sale, the available data free on this website and their regular updates, L'Autrement Dit may in no way be held responsible for any inaccuracies, errors or omissions in the description of the products. Nor may L'Autrement Dit be held responsible for typographical errors on its website, nor a visual of a product which is not up-to-date. Likewise, the photographs and graphics supporting the text are only intended as a guide and do not fall within the scope of the contract. They do not commit L'Autrement Dit, which may not be held responsible for any inaccuracies or errors. More broadly, L'Autrement Dit may not be held responsible for: interruptions or delays on its website due to maintenance work, technical breakdowns or, in the case of force majeure, third parties, or under any circumstances whatsoever beyond its control, where it may be briefly impossible to access its site due to events beyond its control such as disruptions to the Internet network or a fault in the Customer’s Internet connection.

Tout en apportant le plus grand soin à la mise en ligne des informations et des données disponibles gratuitement sur son site et à leur mise à jour, L'Autrement Dit ne saurait être tenue responsable des inexactitudes, erreurs ou omissions qui se seraient éventuellement glissées dans le descriptif des produits. Par ailleurs, L'Autrement Dit ne pourra pas être tenue responsable des erreurs typographiques figurant dans son site ou encore d’un visuel du produit qui ne serait pas à jour. De même, les photographies et graphismes qui illustrent, à l'appui du texte, les produits, ne sont qu'indicatifs et n'entrent pas dans le champ contractuel. Ils n'engagent donc nullement L'Autrement Dit qui ne pourra pas être tenue pour responsable des inexactitudes ou des erreurs qui y seraient éventuellement glissées. Plus généralement, L'Autrement Dit ne pourra pas être tenue responsable : - des interruptions ou retards enregistrés sur son site en raison de l'exécution de travaux de maintenance, de pannes techniques, d'un cas de force majeure, du fait de tiers ou de toutes circonstances quelles qu'elles soient, indépendamment de sa volonté ; - de l'impossibilité d'accéder momentanément à son site, due à des faits indépendants de sa volonté, tels que les cas d'interruptions du réseau Internet ou de défaillance du matériel de connection du Client au réseau Internet.

12. Règlement des litiges

12.1 This contract is subject to Belgian law. In the event of a problem relating to the application of the general terms and conditions of sale and before any legal action is taken, the Customer may seek an amicable solution and call upon assistance from an industry trade association, a consumer association or any other adviser of his choice. Generally speaking and subject to Court assessment, the legal provisions of the General Terms and Conditions of Sale relative to the contractual warranty presume: that the Customer will honour his financial commitments towards L'Autrement Dit – that the Customer will use the product normally. Claims or disputes will always be received with respect, and good faith will always be presumed on the part of anyone who takes the trouble to explain his situation.

12.2. The platform ODR (Online Dispute Resolution) exists for the consumer and business to resolve both national and trans-border disputes rapidly and efficiently http://ec.europa.eu/odr/

ODR operates as an arbitrator to propose a solution. The platform is both friendly and multilingual.

There are 4 stages in the procedure:

1) The consumer completes and sends in a complaints form.
 
2) The complaint is forwarded to the company concerned, which suggests the ADR (Alternative Dispute Resolution) to the consumer.
3) As soon as the consumer and the company agree that the complaint will be dealt with by the ADR, the ODR automatically forwards the file to the ADR.
 4) The ADR finalises the file online and undertakes to find a solution within 90 days.

In the event of a dispute between the parties, it is expressly agreed that jurisdiction will be granted to the Court at Arlon.
