Right of cancellation - Remote salesConditions for exercising the right of cancellation
In compliance with the laws in force in the field of remote sales, the Client has a period of fourteen clear days within which to exercise its right of cancellation without being required to provide reasons or to pay a penalty, with the exception, where applicable, of the costs of return.
The period set forth in the preceding sentence runs from the day on which the remote agreement is concluded for contracts relating to the provision of a service and/or the supply of numerical content that is not provided on hardware support.
Where the fourteen-day period expires on a Saturday, a Sunday, a holiday or a non-working day, it will be extended until the next following working day.
The decision to cancel must be communicated to ADN at the address set forth in Article 1 of these General Terms and Conditions in the form of an unambiguous declaration. For example, the Client may use the model form provided at the foot of these General Terms and Conditions. In any event, ADN will send the Client a notice of receipt of said cancellation by e-mail as promptly as possible.
Where the right of cancellation is exercised, the professional is obliged to reimburse the Client all amounts paid as promptly as possible no later than fourteen days following the date on which said right was exercised. Beyond said period, the amount due will be automatically subject to interest at the legal rate in force, as set forth in Article L. 121-21-4 of the Consumer Code.
Where applicable, the professional makes reimbursement by the same payment method used by the Client for the initial transaction, unless the Client has expressly agreed to the use of a different payment method, provided that the reimbursement does not result in the Client's incurring any costs.
The conditions, time periods and methods of exercise of the right of cancellation are set forth in the model form provided at the foot of these General Terms and Conditions.
The right of cancellation will in particular not apply to contracts for the supply of services that have been completely performed prior to the end of the cancellation period and where performance commenced following the express prior agreement of the Client and an express waiver of its right of cancellation.
Equally, the right of cancellation will not apply to contracts that have been fully performed by the two parties at the express request of the Client prior to the Client's exercising its right to cancellation.
At the time of validation of an order for a Service, the Client's waiver of its right of cancellation will be manifested by checking the box corresponding to the following sentence: "I expressly waive my fourteen-day right of cancellation with regard to services the benefits of which I have enjoyed prior to the expiry of this term". In this case, the Client will receive confirmation of its waiver of its right of cancellation by e-mail.
A Client that exercises its right of cancellation of contract for the provision of services performance of which commenced prior to the end of the cancellation period at its express request will pay the professional an amount corresponding to the service provided after the date of notice of its decision to cancel. Said amount will be in proportion to the total price of the service agreed in the contract.
