    Information about the availability of products is generally given when you place an order. However, in exceptional cases, a product may no longer be available, temporarily, after validation of the order. In this event, MAISON EN VOGUE / PIB HOME will inform you as soon as possible (within eight days at the latest) by mail or by email and propose that you either cancel your order or wait until our supplier delivers the product in question, while specifying the time this will take.

    Shipping times

    The shipping time, indicated on the site, corresponds to the lapse of time between the placing of your order and the package leaving our warehouse.

    The shipping times depend on when the client places the order:

    Reference time: UTC/GMT +1 hour (CET)

    For products in stock at the time of order:

    • From Sunday to Thursday, if the client places an order before 12:00, the package is shipped by the afternoon of the following day at the latest,
    • For the week-end as of 12:00 on Friday, the package is shipped on Monday afternoon at the latest.

    Orders placed on a public holiday, or the eve of a public holiday – within the meaning of, Article L.3133-1 of French Labour Law – extend the time by one day.

    For products not in stock at the time of order: the delivery times are extended by the time needed for restocking.

    For orders paid for by cheque, the shipping times start from when the cheque is cashed.

    In certain exceptional cases, an additional time period may prove necessary so that the effective payment for the goods is validated. This may be due to the size and weight of your order, the method of transport proposed or in the event of delivery outside Metropolitan France.

    Delivery time

    The delivery time, indicated on the site, varies according to the size and weight of the products in your order. It corresponds to the lapse of time between the departure of your package from one of our warehouses and delivery at your home or premises. In the case of delivery by appointment, the delivery time will depend on your availability and the carrier’s distribution schedule. The time indicated on the site thus corresponds to the lapse of time between the departure of the package from one of our warehouses and the time of the appointment.

    Delivery is made by the direct handover of the product to the stipulated addressee. In the event of a delivery by appointment, the client is responsible for ensuring the content and good condition of the package before signing the delivery note. Whatever the carrier or apparent anomaly (damage, product missing compared to the delivery note, external damage to the package, abnormal noise, product broken, etc.), you should refuse delivery of the package.

    You must:

    • • Unpack the package in the presence of the delivery man and,
    • • Note handwritten and detailed reservations, with the signature of the delivery man next to the comments. The reservations noted by the recipient of the delivery are proof of the existence and significance of the damage. Please write these notes as precisely and completely as possible (just noting “on condition of unpacking” is considered as too general and imprecise) and,
    • • Send by registered letter with proof of delivery a letter of complaint with justifications to the carrier within three (3) days of the reception of the delivery (Article L.133-3 of the French Commercial Code),
    • • Inform MAISON EN VOGUE / PIB HOME by email via your client space or registered letter within three (3) working days following delivery of your package.

    For deliveries via SoColissimo, if you or the addressee of the package are absent at the time of delivery, a transit advice note will be left indicating where and when to pick up the package. The later will be kept at the local Post Office for 15 calendar days. In the event that it is not picked up during the time period stipulated by the carrier, the products will be returned to MAISON EN VOGUE /PIB HOME, which reserves the right to reimburse the price of the products, with the shipping costs to be settled by the client.

    In the event of a delay in the delivery, you should first contact the carrier or its distribution office in the case of La Poste, to see if the package is not pending. If need be, you should contact the Client Service at MAISON EN VOGUE / PIB HOME by email to open a litigation file or an enquiry to carry out a search for the package.

    'Premium' deliveries: An extra four to five working days may be needed to ship your package.

    We hereby undertake to compensate you for any abnormal and major delay by offering you the delivery costs on your next order. However, overruns in terms of delivery times will not give rise to damages and interest, nor retention, nor cancellation of the order underway, in the event notably of total or partial strikes inside or external to the company, transport or supply blockages, legal or governmental restrictions. Moreover, MAISON EN VOGUE / PIB HOME shall not be held responsible if laws, regulations or any other event(s) results in your articles being held at the border.

    For orders involving products both in stock and not in stock:

    If your order includes products in stock and other products not in stock, we will wait for all the products to arrive before shipping the order.

    On a case-by-case basis, MAISON EN VOGUE / PIB HOME reserves the right to ship the order in several separate shipments, depending on the availability of the products. Requests in this respect have to be sent to us under the heading "Contact us".

    Withdrawal right, returns and exchanges

    In the case of home shopping (without the simultaneous physical presence of the parties), the client benefits in accordance with French Law, and more particularly Article L.121-20 and the following of the Consumer Code from twenty (20) clear days to his right of withdrawal without giving a reason therefor or incurring a penalty, with the exception, where applicable, of the cost of returning the goods.

    The right of withdrawal commences upon receipt, in the case of goods, and acceptance of the offer, for services provided.

    In accordance with the Law, this right of withdrawal only applies to individuals. Thus, clients that placed their order by completing the field “Company (optional):” may not benefit from the right of withdrawal.

    In addition, in accordance with Article L.121-20 of the Consumer Code, the right of withdrawal cannot be exercised in respect of the “special orders”, that is of goods made especially to the client’s specifications.

    All requests for the return of products ordered shall be made by logging on to the website PIB-HOME.CO.UK and via the heading "Contact us", with the client’s order appear under the heading "My orders" under "My account". The client merely has to specify the order number, the object of the right of withdrawal, the reason for the return if applicable, and then validate. The client will then be attributed a “return” status.

    From the moment MAISON EN VOGUE / PIB HOME takes into account that the right of withdrawal has been exercised, the client has twenty (20) days to return the article or articles concerned, at his expense and in their original packaging.

    The client would then be offered a credit note, or the possibility of being reimbursed for the purchase by bank transfer in euros or pounds (depending on the currency used for the order). The client would have to pay for bank transfer costs should this be an international transfer. In case of right of withdrawal, the client has to bear the costs of return of goods. The refund given includes the initial delivery costs if the client has paid for the return. The refund excludes initial delivery costs if MAISON EN VOGUE has paid for the return (especially in case of collecting bulky goods, for which the return costs are the same as the initial shipping costs).

    Articles in the order can only be reimbursed, or a credit note issued, after our Client Services team has checked the quantity and quality of the articles returned to us. We refund our consumers within 14 days of cancellation. Reimbursement will be postponed until the goods have been returned by the consumer or the client provides evidence that the goods have been sent to us.

    Articles returned without their original packaging, or that are incomplete, damaged or dirtied by the client will not be taken back or exchanged.

    It is duly reminded here that, in accordance with the law, the withdrawal right cannot be exercised for contracts that concern the supply of goods that have been made specifically according to consumer’s specifications or that have been heavily customised.

    Disputes

    We always afford favourable consideration to complaints or disputes. In the event of litigation, please write in priority to MAISON EN VOGUE to come to an amicable settlement, by mail at MAISON EN VOGUE SAS, 81 avenue Kléber, 75116 Paris, FRANCE or via the contact form under the heading "Contact us" on the PIB-HOME.CO.UK website.

    By default, and in condition that the client is qualified as a "retailer", any litigation related to the interpretation or execution of the present general terms and conditions will fall under the exclusive competence of the Paris Commercial Court.
