These terms and conditions apply to the exclusion of any other terms.
Article 1 –Prices
1.1 - All prices quoted are in euros and are inclusive of tax (TVA). Delivery is not included. Distance book sales are now regulated by French law. As provided for in law 2014-779 of July 8th 2014, Diverti Éditions may offer up to 5% discount of the book’s RRP. When applicable, this reduction is either notified in the product details or the shopping basket. All orders are payable in euros, irrespective of the country where the order is placed. Notwithstanding the provisions of these terms and conditions, the price of subscriptions in mainland France includes delivery. Discounts on subscriptions are based on the French cover price.
1.2 - For orders to countries outside mainland France, the customer is considered to be the importer of the product(s) in question. For all products sent to destinations outside the EU or French overseas departments and territories (DROM-COM), the price indicated on the invoice is exclusive of tax. Customs duties, other local taxes, import duties or state taxes are likely to be payable. These duties and other amounts must be paid by the customer and will not be borne by Diverti Éditions.

Article 8 – Money-back guarantee – Right of Withdrawal
8.1 - By law, the consumer has a period of 14 clear days after reception of the goods – magazine subscriptions excepted - to exercise his/her right of withdrawal, without having to give any reasons or be liable to pay any penalties. Should you wish to exercise this right, please contact Diverti Éditions. Should the last day of the 14-day period fall on a Saturday, Sunday, bank holiday or any other non-working day, the period is extended until the first following business day. In the event of the consumer exercising their right of withdrawal within the aforementioned period, only the price of the purchased product(s) will be reimbursed. The consumer is not liable for any costs incurred as a result of exercising the right to cancel the contract. Article L211-11 of the ‘Code de la Consommation’ (French consumer code) states that the “no costs will be incurred by the purchaser in the application of the provisions of articles L. 211-9 and L. 211-10”. The items must be returned in their original condition (packaging, accessories, instructions…) so as to permit their resale as new. Please include a copy of the invoice to facilitate processing returns. After notifying us of your decision to exercise your right of withdrawal within 14 days, you have a further 14 days to return the product(s) concerned. Model letter to exercise your right of withdrawal: For the attention of Diverti Éditions - Fax +33 (0)5 49 90 09 80 - E-mail: email@example.com I/we (*) hereby inform you that I/we (*) wish to exercise my/our (*) right of withdrawal from the following sale of goods contract / service contract (*): Ordered on ______ / received on ______ (*): Name and address of customer(s): Signature(s) (not required for an electronic document): Date: (*) Delete as appropriate.

8.2 - Products not covered by the right of withdrawal In accordance with the regulations in force, the right of withdrawal does not apply to sealed audio or video recordings and computer software if the customer has broken the seal on the wrapping. Likewise, in accordance with the provisions of Article L. 121-20-2 of the ‘Code de la Consommation’ (French consumer code), the right of withdrawal does not apply to the supply of newspapers, periodicals and magazines. Please note therefore that subscriptions may not be cancelled before their expiry date. You further acknowledge that no right of withdrawal applies to the sale of digital books or other such works sold on a one-off basis (i.e. not as part of a subscription). Communicating the link(s) required to download the file(s) in question is, by its very nature, irreversible.
