3. Products and services
3.1 - Description of the Products
ELEBADECOR takes the greatest care in its presentation of the Products on the Site. Nevertheless, while every effort is made to ensure that the color in photographs of the Products displayed on the Site is as close as possible to that of the original products, variations may occur; in particular due to the technical limitations of computer equipment in rendering color and because of the artisanal nature of some products that are hand-made. Accordingly, it is possible that the Customer’s perception of the photographic representation of the Products does not correspond exactly to the Product as is, of which the Customer is hereby expressly informed.
3.2 - Product availability
The Products offered for sale by ELEBADECOR are those shown on the Site on the date the Customer visits the Site and within the limits of available stocks. ELEBADECOR reserves the right to withdraw Products from sale at any time. ELEBADCOR does not guarantee availability of the Products presented on the Site. In case any Product is unavailable, the Customer will be informed at the earliest opportunity by email of delivery of a part-order or of the cancellation of his order.
3.3 - Partner Services
ELEBADECOR may propose links to other Websites managed by partner sites (hereinafter “Partner Services”). To the extent in particular that ELEBADECOR cannot control Partner Services, ELEBADECOR gives no undertaking as to these sites and external sources supplied and will incur no liability as to the content, advertisements, products, services or any other material available on or from these sites and external sources. Similarly, ELEBADECOR cannot be held liable for any damage or proven or alleged losses, consecutive or related to the use, contents or services available on these Partner Services or external sources.
The prices of the Products are firm. They are stated in US dollars. The price list in force is that set forth on the Site, except for typographical error. These prices do not include delivery or packing costs which will be billed in addition and will be specified to the Customer when his order is finally validated. The price billed to the Customer is the price stated on the confirmation of order sent by email by ELEBADECOR. Orders delivered to the state of Pennsylvania are subject to VAT at the local rate.
ELEBADECOR reserves the right, which the Customer accepts, to modify its prices at any time, without formality other than making the modifications on the Site. These modifications, however, will not have any effect on orders which ELEBADECOR will have accepted before the modifications come into effect, subject to availability of the Products ordered.
5. Retention of title clause
The Products ordered remain the property of ELEBADECOR until their price has been collected in full. On the other hand, on the effective date of delivery, the risks (in particular of loss, theft or deterioration) pertaining to the Products delivered are assumed by the Customer.
6. How to place an order?
6.1 - Finding your way around the Site
The Customer may find and read about the various different Products offered for sale by ELEBADECOR on the Site. The Customer is free to browse all the different pages on the Site with no obligation to order.

If the Customer wishes to place an order, he chooses the different Products in which he is interested and makes such interest clear by clicking on the “Check out” button then selecting his payment method.

Unless the server is unavailable, the Customer has two methods of paying for his order on the Site when validating his order:
- payment on-line via the secure interface PayZen (Lyra Network) by bank card (International Visa, Mastercard)

ELEBADECOR delivers the USA, Brazil, Canada and Mexico for orders placed on its Site.
The products are delivered to the address the Customer has given in the course of the ordering process. The Products are shipped from the warehouses of ELEBADECOR or its subcontractors in the USA (Pennsylvania) within 24 hours of the order being placed (Monday to Friday, US public bank holidays excluded). An email containing the order number and parcel tracking number is sent to the Customer when the order is prepared. The delivery times stated during the ordering process are average times of conveyance, to which the time needed to process the shipment should be added.
The times given above are indicative only. In no case may exceeding these times by the carriers be relied on against ELEBADECOR or give rise to cancellation of the contract of sale or to any compensation in favor of the Customer. Any anomaly relating to delivery (parcel damaged, items missing compared to ELEBADECOR’s invoice, etc.) must be the subject of reservations consigned on the carrier’s delivery note. At the same time, the Customer must inform the customer services department at UNDER THE PAPER LANTERN (firstname.lastname@example.org) and the carrier within 14 days of the order date, of the said claims which must be reasoned and accompanied by supporting documents. Once this period has passed and failing compliance with these formalities, the Products will be deemed compliant and free from any defect and no claim will be validly accepted by ELEBADECOR. In the event that a return of the defective Product is justified, ELEBADECOR will (at its choice) either refund the defective Product or exchange it, to the extent that this Product is available in stock, to the exclusion of any compensation. It is specified that the carriage costs are at ELEBADECOR’S charge in the case where the decision to return the Product is the result of an error originating with ELEBADECOR
9. Right of withdrawal
The Customer has a period of 14 clear days as of order date to return the Product(s) he ordered, at his cost, if he is dissatisfied with the Product(s), and to cancel his order. This period runs with effect from the date of purchase of the order. Any exchange or return must be the subject of a request to exchange or return by contacting the customer services department of ELEBADECOR at email@example.com. The Product(s) must be returned in its (their) original packaging and accompanied by the delivery slip, to the address which will be given by the customer services department of ELEBADECOR. ELEBADECOR does not accept freight forward parcels. All risks connected with returning the Product(s) are at the Customer’s charge. If the above conditions are met, ELEBADECOR will refund the Customer the sums corresponding to the Products acquired by him (original shipping costs won’t be refund), or will exchange the Product or Products within a period of thirty (30) days following the date on which the Customer exercised his right of withdrawal.

ELEBADECOR is mindful of protecting the personal information disclosed by Customers (the “Personal Information”). In this context, ELEBADECOR undertakes to observe confidentiality in respect of the Personal Information transmitted. This article explains (i) how Customers’ Personal Information is used; (ii) how each Customer is able to correct, change or delete the Personal Information which ELEBADECOR is holding on him/her; (iii) to whom ELEBADECOR is able to disclose the same; and (iv) the security measures put in place by ELEBADECOR with a view to protecting the confidentiality of the Personal Information.

12.2. - Access to the Personal Information
The Personal Information is accessible at any time in the “My Account” section, through the Customer’s email, login and password.
12.3. - Disclosure to third parties
ELEBADECOR may be required to disclose Customers’ Personal Information to legally empowered organizations or authorities, to the extent that such disclosure is required or authorized by the law, or where ELEBADECOR judges it necessary or appropriate to satisfy the laws and other applicable texts or to protect or defend its rights or those of its employees, customers or any other person. ELEBADECOR may transmit Customers’ Personal Information to third parties in case of assignment, transfer of assets, reorganization or liquidation. ELEBADECOR will then notify Customers if their Personal Information will be the subject of a different confidentiality policy.

Unless the Customer objects when his Personal Information is being gathered, ELEBADECOR may pass its Customers’ Personal Information on to its partners for canvassing and marketing purposes in particular by email, post or telephone.

12.4. - Retention

ELEBADECOR has taken the relevant precautions to ensure its datafiles are secure and that its computer system is protected, and to prevent, in particular, the Personal Information from being distorted, damaged and accessed by unauthorized third parties.
12.6. - Confidentiality
When the Customer creates an account, he chooses an email address and a password which he will be asked for each time he wants to log on. The Personal Information is therefore protected by a password such that the Customer, and only the Customer, can access it. ELEBADECOR recommends that users do not disclose this to anyone. The Customer should, moreover, not forget to log out of his profile and close the window on his browser at the end of his session, particularly when using a computer shared with others for accessing the Internet. In this way, the Customer will avoid other users accessing his Personal Information. In particular, the Client is solely responsible for ensuring his password is kept confidential. He alone is liable for any consequences that might ensure from any use by third parties who may have had knowledge thereof. In case he forgets his password, there is a function available on the Site whereby the Customer can be sent his password by email. Similarly, should the Customer be concerned that a third party knows his password, he may create a new in the “My information” section of “My Account”.
