World Grands Crus operates this site. Any order taken under a product appearing in the online store of this website assumes the consultation and prior acceptance of these general conditions of sale. Consequently, the consumer recognizes to be perfectly informed of the fact that his agreement concerning the contents of the present general conditions does not require the handwritten signature of this document, insofar as the customer wishes to order on line the products presented within the framework of the store of the Web site.
The consumer has the option to save or edit these terms and conditions; being specified that both the saving and editing of this document be of his sole responsibility. The consumer declares to have the full legal capacity allowing him to engage under these general conditions.

In this sense, the consumer is considered to accept without reserve the entirety of the provisions envisaged in these general conditions. No general or specific condition appearing in the documents sent or given by the consumer will be able to be integrated into the present, since these documents would be incompatible with these general conditions.

As part of a random control, we invite you by e-mail to transmit proof of address and/or identity (the aim being to ensure the reality of the identity and the address [for example an electrical supply receipt, a telephone bill, and an identity document]) for the perfection of the order. In the absence of proof or if the documents sent do not make it possible to ensure the identity of the author of the order and the reality of the domiciliation, we would be in the obligation to cancel the order to guarantee the safety of the on-line transactions.

Article 13 : Delivery terms
The products are delivered to the address indicated by the consumer on the order form. The consumer is required to check the condition of the packaging of the goods upon delivery and to report any damage due to the carrier on the delivery slip, as well as to World Grands Crus within one week.
World Grands Crus works essentially with LA POSTE, to minimise transport costs. All the products of small or average size are in general dispatched by a service of the post office called Colissimo Suivi. This service offers you the possibility of recovering the ordered products to your post office close to the address of delivery in case of absence at the place of initial delivery during the postal delivery service passage.
If you are absent the day of the delivery, your postal delivery service will leave you a notice of passage in your mailbox, which will allow you to withdraw your parcel at your post office during the opening hours, within 15 days.
Colissimo Suivi is a very reliable service. However, it is possible, as in any expedition, that there may be a delay in delivery or that the product gets lost. In case of delay in delivery compared to the date that we have indicated in the mail shipment, we ask you to report this delay by calling us by phone or by sending us an email. We will then contact the Post Office to start an investigation. A Post investigation can last up to 21 days from the date of the start of the investigation. If during this period, the product is found, it will be immediately redirected to your home (the majority of cases). If on the other hand the product is not found at the end of the 21 days investigation period, the Post Office considers the parcel as lost. It is only at this moment that we can send you a replacement product, at our expense. If the product(s) ordered were no longer available at that time, we would reimburse you the amount of the products concerned by the loss of the carrier. If the products were still available, but had changed selling price on the site, we would apply the new selling prices, either by refunding you by check of the difference, or by asking for a complementary check concerning this price difference.
World Grands Crus, declines any responsibility as for the lengthening of the delivery periods because of the conveyor, in particular in the event of loss of the products or strikes.
In case of articles deliverable at different dates taking into account their availability, the delivery period is based on the longest period, World Grands Crus reserves however the possibility of splitting the deliveries. The participation to the processing and shipping costs will be invoiced only for one shipment.
World Grands Crus, can not be held responsible for the consequences due to a delay in delivery.
Article 14 : Delivery problems due to the carrier
