GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SALE
- Scope of application
These general terms and conditions of sale (hereinafter the “GTCS”) define the mutual rights and obligations in the event of the purchase of products or services on the Platform by a User (hereinafter “Customer”).
The GTCS express the entirety of the parties’ obligations. The Customer is deemed to accept them without reservation, failing which his order will not be validated.
In exceptional cases, the provisions of the GTCS may be waived insofar as such waivers have been agreed in writing. These derogations may consist of the modification, addition or deletion of the clauses to which they relate and have no effect on the application of the other provisions of the GTCS.
Les Filles du Baobab SPRL reserves the right to modify the GTCS from time to time. The modifications will be applicable as soon as they are published online for all purchases made after this date.

Through the Platform, the Seller provides the Customer with an online shop presenting the products or services sold, without the photographs having any contractual value.
The products or services are described and presented as accurately as possible. However, in the event of errors or omissions in the presentation, the Seller shall not be held liable for this.
The products and services are offered within the limits of their availability.
Prices and taxes are specified in the online shop.
The Seller reserves the right to change its prices at any time by publishing them online.
Only the prices indicated and the taxes in force at the time of the order shall apply, subject to availability on that date.
The prices are indicated in euros and do not take into account any delivery costs, which are indicated and invoiced in addition before the order is validated by the Customer.
The total amount of the order (including all taxes) and, where applicable, delivery costs is indicated before final validation of the order form.

Delivery is only made after confirmation of payment by the Seller’s bank.
