Referred to individually as the “Party” or collectively as the “Parties”.

2. Aim of these T&Cs of Sale
The Customer is deemed to be a consumer within the meaning of the French Consumer Code.
3. Subscription and Order
3.1. User Account
To order Products on the Site, the Customer must first have created a user account (hereinafter the “User Account”).
To create this User Account, the Customer provides information regarding their identity and contact details. Koosh collects this information to enable it to proceed through the various steps in the sale of the Products.
The Customer undertakes to update this information on their User Account. The Customer guarantees the exactness, reliability and accuracy of the personal information and contact details given in their User Account.
Koosh will not be held liable for any failure on the part of the Customer to exercise care when creating their User Account and updating their personal data, in particular regarding keeping their Order delivery address up to date.
In order to receive their Products, the Customer must take out one of the Subscriptions offered on the Site.
The Subscription consists of the acceptance of a regular delivery of Products at a frequency chosen by the Customer of between three (3) and six (6) weeks.
The Customer can customise their Subscription, including the following settings:
Upon taking out a Subscription, the Customer agrees to the conditions of the Subscription and of future Orders via a double-click process. This process allows the Customer to check the contents of their Order and to correct any errors (information regarding their identity, their contact details, the Products chosen or the quantity of Products chosen) before confirming their order.
By confirming their Order, the Customer expressly accepts the T&Cs of Sale. Following this confirmation, Koosh sends the Customer an email confirming the Subscription to the address given when taking out the Subscription.
As each new Order approaches, Koosh sends out a summary email to the Customer, asking them to confirm the upcoming Order and to make any modifications to it if necessary.
Any modifications to the Order will be made using the double-click process described above and must take place at the latest five (5) days before the estimated delivery date for the Order. These modifications will apply to all future orders until further modifications are made.
The Subscription is taken out for an indefinite period.
4.1. Product description
A dedicated page for each Product states the essential characteristics of the Products available on the site.
Each Product is illustrated by a photograph, which does not constitute a contractual document.
4.2. Product compliance
The Products are compliant with the requirements of legislation governing the health and safety of persons, fair trading and consumer protection in force at the time they are placed on the market.
4.3. Product availability
Products are delivered to the Customer subject to available stocks.
Prior to placing an Order, the Customer will be informed where necessary of the unavailability of a Product directly via the Product page.
If the Customer has already ordered the Product and it is unavailable, Koosh will immediately inform the Customer and offer them a Product of equivalent quality and price. If the Parties cannot reach an agreement, Koosh will refund the Customer’s Order.
The refund will be issued by bank transfer only, using the same payment method that was used by the Customer during the initial transaction. If the Customer expressly wishes to be refunded to a different bank account from that used during the initial transaction, the Customer shall request this from Koosh by email via email@example.com and provide valid bank details.
5. Pricing conditions
5.1. Product prices
The price of the Subscriptions is indicated on the site and stated in the summary of the Customer’s order before it is confirmed.
This price is given in euros inclusive of all taxes. Delivery is free.
The Order total is determined by Koosh based on the Product, the number of items and the nature of the Product.
5.2 Changes to Product prices
The prices of the Products are fixed and cannot be revised during the Subscription period.
However, outside the Subscription period, Koosh reserves the right to amend Product prices at any time and without notice. These changes will affect future Subscriptions and not the current Subscription.
5.3 Payment terms
Payment is made via the means offered on the Site. Koosh reserves the right to offer and/or to limit the choice of payment methods available to the Customer on the Site.
In particular, Koosh offers the Customer the ability to pay the total for their Subscription by direct debit. To this end, after confirming their first Order, the Customer expressly consents to the direct debiting of the amount of their Subscription from the bank account whose details they have given. This consent is given for the duration of the Subscription.
Koosh reserves the right to suspend any Order in the event that officially accredited bodies refuse to authorise payment or in the event of non-payment.
Payments made on the Site are secured via a data encryption process and are made in accordance with current regulations. In no case will Koosh be held liable for any fraudulent use that may be made of the payment methods used.
The Customer shall ensure the validity of their payment method.
In the event of non-payment of the sums due by the Customer, Koosh reserves the right to cancel the Customer’s Subscription and to have recourse to any legal proceedings to seek compensation for the damages incurred by Koosh as a result of this non-payment.
Koosh may on its Site or by email offer the Customer one or more referral and loyalty programmes at various times and under various terms. These programmes are optional and the Customer is not obliged to participate in any way.
The discounts given to the Customer as part of the referral and loyalty programme as well as information regarding participation in these programmes are made available to the Customer in detail on the Site.
In the case of a referral programme, the discounts given to the referrer will automatically be deducted from the total amount of their next Order. The discount given to the referee will automatically be deducted from the total amount of their first Order. If the discount amount exceeds the total amount of the Order, the discount will automatically be applied to the next Order until the full value of the discount has been applied.
If the Customer cancels their Subscription or exercises their right of cancellation, all available credit notes, discounts and other advantages linked to the referral and loyalty programmes immediately lose their validity and value on the date of cancellation.
The Customer can send their individual promotional code to a friend or post it to their private website, private blog, Facebook account, Twitter profile or Instagram account. However, posting this code on commercial media sites or other providers, in particular promotional code sites, ‘dealblogs’ and/or forums is strictly prohibited. Where necessary, Koosh may deactivate the promotional code and cancel the credit notes, discounts or advantages improperly received by the Customer.
The Products on the Site can be delivered to mainland France, Belgium, and Luxembourg. Outside of these areas, the Customer is asked to contact Koosh for specific delivery terms.
The delivery time is given as a guide and is stated on the Order summary and when the Customer confirms the Order.
However, the delivery time cannot be more than thirty (30) days from the Customer’s confirmation of the Order and the delivery cannot take place on Saturdays, Sundays or bank holidays.
As part of a Subscription, the delivery of the first Order of the Subscription takes place on the estimated date given by the Customer in the Order. The delivery of subsequent Orders depends on the delivery frequency selected by the Customer in their Subscription.
It is the responsibility of the Customer to keep their delivery details up to date in their User Account. The Customer can change the delivery address up to five (5) days before the estimated delivery date for their Order.
Deliveries are made via an independent carrier to be chosen exclusively by Koosh.
Risk transfer does not take place until the Customer physically takes possession of the Order and is able to verify its general condition.
In the event of a lasting impediment to delivery, including in the event of force majeure or stock shortage of a Product, Koosh reserves the right to terminate the Subscription with the Customer. The Customer will be informed of such termination immediately. Koosh will then refund any payments received for those Orders not honoured by Koosh.
The Customer can view the status of their Order at any time via their customer area on the Site.
The Customer shall check the condition of the delivered Order.
