Any order placed on the sebastiendelautier.com website constitutes the formation of a contract concluded at a distance between the Customer and the Seller.
The Seller reserves the right to cancel or refuse any order from a Customer with whom there is a dispute relating to the payment of a previous order.
The Customer can follow the evolution of his order on the site.

ARTICLE 3 Bis - Customer area - Account

In order to place an order, the Customer is invited to create an account (personal space).
To do this, he must register by filling out the form that will be offered at the time of his order and agrees to provide true and accurate information about his civil status and contact information, including his email address.
The Customer is responsible for updating the information provided. It is specified to him that he can modify them by connecting to his account.
To access his personal space and order history, the Customer will have to identify himself using his user name and password which will be communicated to him after his registration and which are strictly personal. As such, the Customer shall refrain from disclosing them. Otherwise, he will remain solely responsible for the use that will be made of them.
The Customer may also request to unsubscribe by going to the dedicated page on his personal space or by sending an email to: delautierphotography@gmail.com. This will be effective within a reasonable time.

In case of non-compliance with the general conditions of sale and / or use, the site sebastiendelautier.com will have the possibility to suspend or close the account of a customer after notice sent by electronic means and remained without effect.
Any deletion of account, whatever the reason, engenders the pure and simple deletion of all personal information of the Customer.
Any event due to a case of force majeure resulting in a malfunction of the site or server and subject to any interruption or modification in case of maintenance, does not engage the responsibility of the Seller.
The creation of the account entails the acceptance of the present general conditions of sale.

ARTICLE 4 - Terms of payment

The price is paid by secure payment, according to the following methods:
payment by credit card (Stripe)
or payment by bank transfer to the Seller's bank account (whose details are communicated to the Customer when the order is placed)

The price is payable in full by the Customer on the day the order is placed.

The payment data are exchanged in encrypted mode thanks to the protocol defined by the approved payment provider involved in banking transactions carried out on the sebastiendelautier.com site.

Payments made by the Customer shall be considered final only after the Seller has effectively collected the sums due.
The Seller shall not be bound to deliver the Products ordered by the Customer if the latter does not pay the price in full under the conditions indicated above.

ARTICLE 5 - Deliveries

The Products ordered by the Customer will be delivered in Metropolitan France or in the following zones:

Deliveries are made within 2 weeks to the address indicated by the Customer when ordering on the website.
The delivery is constituted by the transfer to the Customer of the physical possession or control of the Product. Except in special cases or when one or more Products are unavailable, the Products ordered will be delivered at once.
The Seller undertakes to make its best efforts to deliver the Products ordered by the Customer within the time limits specified above.

If the ordered Products were not delivered within 2 weeks after the indicative date of delivery, for any other cause than the force majeure or the fact of the Customer, the sale will be able to be cancelled at the written request of the Customer under the conditions envisaged in the articles L 216-2, L 216-3 and L241-4 of the Code of the consumption. The sums paid by the Customer will then be restored to him at the latest in the fourteen days which follow the date of denunciation of the contract, to the exclusion of any compensation or retention.

The deliveries are ensured by an independent carrier, at the address mentioned by the Customer at the time of the order and to which the carrier will have easy access.
When the Customer has himself/herself chosen a carrier, delivery shall be deemed to have been made as soon as the Products ordered have been handed over by the Seller to the carrier, who has accepted them without reservation. The Customer therefore acknowledges that it is the carrier's responsibility to make the delivery and shall have no recourse against the Seller in the event of failure to deliver the goods transported.

In the event of a specific request by the Customer concerning the conditions of packaging or transport of the products ordered, duly accepted in writing by the Seller, the costs related thereto shall be subject to specific additional invoicing, based on an estimate previously accepted in writing by the Customer.
The Customer is required to check the condition of the products delivered. The Customer has a period of 2 days, the maximum period as from the delivery, to formulate complaints by email, accompanied by all the related documents (photos in particular). After this period and in the absence of having respected these formalities, the Products will be deemed to be in conformity and free of any apparent defect and no claim will be validly accepted by the Seller.
The Seller shall refund or replace, as soon as possible and at its own expense, the delivered Products whose defects of conformity or apparent or hidden defects have been duly proven by the Customer, under the conditions provided for in Articles L 217-4 et seq. of the French Consumer Code and those provided for in these GTC.

The transfer of the risks of loss and deterioration relating thereto shall only be carried out at the time when the Customer takes physical possession of the Products. The Products shall therefore travel at the Seller's risk, except when the Customer has chosen the carrier. In this respect, the risks are transferred at the time of delivery of the goods to the carrier.

ARTICLE 6 - Transfer of ownership

The transfer of ownership of the Products from the Vendor to the Customer will only take place after full payment of the price by the latter, regardless of the date of delivery of said Products.

ARTICLE 7 - Right of withdrawal

Due to the nature of the Products sold, which are completely personalized, the orders placed by the Customer do not benefit from the right of withdrawal.
The contract is therefore definitively concluded as soon as the order is placed by the Customer according to the terms and conditions specified in these GTC.

ARTICLE 8 - Responsibility of the Seller - Guarantees

ARTICLE 10 - Intellectual property relating to the website

The content of the sebastiendelautier.com website is the property of the Seller and its partners and is protected by French and international laws relating to intellectual property.
Any total or partial reproduction of this content is strictly forbidden and is likely to constitute an infringement of copyright.

ARTICLE 11 - Intellectual property relating to photo prints

The purchaser of an original work is not invested by the fact of this acquisition of any of the attributes of the intellectual property. Therefore, no reproduction or distribution of the print for which the invoice states the sale is authorized without the prior agreement of the author (Art. L111-3 of the Intellectual Property Code).

ARTICLE 12 - Transfer of broadcasting rights

The Seller is the sole owner of the intellectual property rights on the transferred works.
In accordance with article L111-3 of the Intellectual Property Code, the possession of the medium of a work (in this case digital media) does not, as such, confer intellectual property rights. The reproduction rights of the Transferee (Customer) are therefore strictly limited and listed in the present article.

In accordance with the provisions of the Intellectual Property Code, and more precisely of article L131-1, any transfer of rights, in order to be validly concluded, must be limited as to the media of use, the duration and the territorial scope.

The purpose of this transfer of broadcasting rights is to authorize the Customer (the assignee of the rights) to use the works identified in the order within the limits agreed upon at the time of the order and as listed on the invoice corresponding to the order (in particular, type of broadcasting, type of medium, size of the image, destination, geographical scope, number of media, duration of use, etc.)

This transfer excludes any use of the photographs for purposes other than those mentioned on the invoice.

The transfer of rights is granted for a period as specified on the invoice. The lack of use of the works by the Customer does not extend the duration of the transfer. At the end of the agreed period, the Customer shall cease all use of the works or shall spontaneously approach the Seller to negotiate an extension of the term of the assignment.

Furthermore, the Assignee (Customer):
Will not modify the work transferred
Shall include the words "Photo © Sébastien Delautier - www.sebastiendelautier.com" near each reproduction or use of the work transferred, in a font size equivalent to that of the presentation texts on the visuals
If he integrates it in another creation, he commits himself not to modify it
Is forbidden to transfer to third parties works that are the subject of this agreement, for any reason whatsoever and on any medium whatsoever
Undertakes to inform the person chosen by him (graphic designer, webmaster, etc.) of the obligation to respect the intellectual property rights of the Photographer. The Client will be personally responsible for any violations by the intervening party if he is unable to demonstrate that he has provided the necessary information.

The Customer acknowledges that the images selected by him in the context of his order are not subject to exclusivity.
As such, the Seller may make unrestricted use of them with other Customers (promotion, transfer of reproduction rights, sale of art prints, ...)

The Customer is informed that the rules of French law concerning image rights may prohibit him, in certain circumstances and for certain purposes (in particular commercial), from distributing images representing recognizable persons without the consent of the latter.
The Customer and the Seller agree that the photographs selected in the order do not show recognizable persons. Therefore, no agreement is required.

The transferee Customer shall declare and pay to the Urssaf the following contributions (rates in force in 2022):
- Social security contributions (1% of the gross amount before tax)
- Contribution to professional training (0.10% of the gross amount before tax)

The following are excluded from this contribution scheme
natural or legal persons who remunerate a third party for an artistic work; and not the artist or his beneficiaries (e.g.: purchase of a work from a gallery);
companies residing abroad (outside France);
individuals who pay a fee for an artistic work and keep it for their personal use;
artists who pay a fee to a colleague.
