15.6.1. The Products sold on the Site are subject to the conditions of the legal guarantees provided by articles L217-4 to L217-14 of the Consumer Code as well as by articles 1641 and 1648 of the Civil Code to the exclusion of all other guarantees:
- legal guarantee against hidden defects: NAHE COSMETIQUES will deliver to the customer a good free from hidden defects which would make it unfit for the use for which it was intended, or which diminish this use so much that the buyer would not have acquired it, or would only have given a lesser price for it, if he had known about them. This guarantee shall only apply if the customer requests it within two years of the discovery of the defect.

If NAHE COSMETIQUES concludes that the Product does not conform, you may demand that NAHE COSMETIQUES:
i) replacement with an identical Product, subject to availability;
ii) its repair (if commercially reasonable); or
iii) a full refund of the price of the Product to the Customer (and not the Gift Recipient).
