In accordance with article L 221-18 of the Consumer Code, (except in the situations specified in article L. 221-28 of that code), you have a right of retraction that you may use within 14 (fourteen) days from the day following the delivery date of your order. In the event of an order including several products, this period of fourteen days commences to run as of the day following the date of receipt of the last Product (with the postage serving as proof of the sending date). When the period of fourteen (14) days expires on a Saturday, Sunday or holiday, it is extended to the next business day.
The aforesaid time for retraction does not apply to products which are susceptible to alterations that may compromise their healthiness such as essential oils in the form of synergies, or pure essential oils when they are opened.
Procedures for retraction
To retract, you may:
download the form for retraction (hereinafter in Appendix 2), print it, fill it out, and send it by email to email@example.com;
write to AROMASOUND C/O GAMES.FR, 396 rue de la Voyette, CRT2 FRETIN, CS 90414- 59814 LESQUIN CEDEX, France, to inform it of your intention to retract;
- or contact the customer department (see article VIII above).
In any event, the retraction documents must contain at least the customer’s surname and given names, the email given upon placement of the order, the order number and the invoice.
B.RETURN OF PRODUCTS
You must return to the Vendor the product (s) for which retraction is exercised, within a reasonable time and, in any event, within fourteen (14) days following the date on which you give notice of your decision to retract.This time limit is deemed to be complied with if the product (s) is/are returned prior to expiration of the fourteen-days period.
You may ask for a reimbursement of payments for the Product (s) ordered, or for an exchange of products, at the address indicated by GAMES.FR, or by telephoning 03 20 90 72 18 (Charge of a local call from a land phone).
The costs of return are charged to the customer.
Products are returned under your responsibility and at your expense. Any damage incurred by the Product (s) during the return obviates your right of retraction.We recommend that you insure the shipment of the Product (s) returned. Even if such insurance is optional, it may be useful for your protection against possible breakdown, loss or theft.
The Product (s) for which reimbursement is requested must be returned by registered post for security reasons.
The Product (s) must be returned in the initial packaging and in good condition, with all accessories and documentation. It/they must be in perfect condition for resale. Hence, there will be no refund for a Product that is incomplete or damaged due to handling other than that which is necessary to establish its nature, characteristics and/or proper functioning.
An incomplete order returned to the indicated address, and/or in the absence of a reference number for the returned Product (s), and/or a return of the Product (s) to an address different from that which is indicated by GAMES.FR, will not be treated as a return and, therefore, will not be reimbursed.
C.TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF REFUND
If you exercise the right of retraction, you will be reimbursed within thirty (30) business days following the date on which you exercised said right. However, GAMES.FR may defer the time for reimbursement until actual recovery of the products.
It is specified that a Product for which there was a promotion will be reimbursed at the price that you have paid or which should have been paid if the Product no longer qualified for the promotion. In other words, the refund will cover the price of your order billed and collected by GAMES.FR.
Only the costs of return are charged to you, unless you chose to receive a replacement Product if the Product (s) was/were unavailable.

If the breakdown appears to be covered by a guarantee, we will exchange your Product after its receipt. To that end, you must follow the procedure explained by our technical department. Upon receipt of your Product, it is analyzed by our technicians. If it is confirmed that the breakdown is covered by the aforesaid guarantee, we will send a new Product to your domicile in metropolitan France.
We will commit to send a Product of an identical or higher quality.
If, after analysis of the Product, it turns out that the breakdown is not covered by the aforesaid guarantee, we will return your Product, if we receive your confirmation by email, with the re-shipment costs being charged to you.
In any event, it is your responsibility to retain the purchase documentation in order to be covered by the guarantee. This documentation will be requested for any correspondence with our technical department.
It is specified that, in the context of a legal guarantee of conformity, the consumer : has two years from delivery of the product within which to act vis-à-vis his vendor; may choose between a repair or replacement of the product, subject to the conditions with respect to cost specified by article L. 217-9 of the Consumer Code;
is exempt from the obligation to prove the existence of defects in the product within six months after its delivery. This time is extended to 24 months as of 18 March 2016, except for used products.
