The products sold on the Site are new.


2.1. Terms of delivery

Items ordered are delivered exclusively to the countries listed on the following URL page:
Your items will be delivered to you by a carrier in a relay point or to your home, according to your choice.
When placing your order, you will be asked to give your telephone number so that the carrier can inform you of the planned delivery date and invite you to confirm it.
You agree to be present on the delivery date agreed with the carrier. If you are unable to be present on the day of delivery, you may :

-choose an authorized person to accept the delivery and assume all your responsibilities; 
-agree another delivery day with the carrier.

2.2. Delivery times
Items are delivered within approximately :
-five working days for deliveries in mainland France
-ten working days for deliveries to Corsica, the French overseas departments and territories or the EU countries mentioned in article 2.1.
-fifteen working days for deliveries outside the EU.

The delivery times indicated above run from the moment you have definitively validated your order (see article 3.3 (“Third stage”) of these GCS),
In the event of a delay in delivery of more than fifteen working days, you have the right to cancel the order, by registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt or by writing on another durable medium, if, after having enjoined us, by the same means, to make delivery within a reasonable additional period, we have not complied within this period.

The order is considered cancelled upon receipt of the letter or written notice informing us of this cancellation, unless we have complied in the meantime.
In this case, reimbursement will be made at the latest within fourteen days of the date on which the order was cancelled.

2.3 Delivery charges
You will be asked to pay a flat-rate contribution towards delivery costs, the amount of which is defined in the price list accessible via this link:
The cost of delivery can be accessed at any time by clicking on the basket and is shown in the order summary, prior to validation of the order by you.
In the event of delivery failure on your part, the cost of the 2nd delivery, based on an estimate, will be charged to you.

2.4. Normal checks on delivery
You must carefully check on delivery that the packaging is in good condition and that the products delivered are intact, complete and in conformity with your order. If you notice any damage or non-conformity, report it immediately to the carrier and specify it on the delivery note, then contact Animaderm customer service by e-mail.

In the event of a delivery error (reference or quantity) or breakage during transport, you can request a return within a maximum of ten days of receipt of your order, by logging into your customer account and returning to your order history. This return request must first be validated by the Company, which may ask you for proof of the alleged error or breakage. In the event of validation of your return request due to a delivery error or defect in the product delivered, the cost of returns will be borne by the company.

For France, subject to your return request being validated by the Company, if a return package is necessary, you must go to and click on : “Manage your returns”. You will then be asked to enter the parcel number of the order you wish to return, which will then enable you to print out the return slip to stick on your parcel. Finally, the parcel must be dropped off at one of the Relais Pick up outlets indicated on the DPD website:

6.2. In cases where you have a right of withdrawal, the fourteen-day withdrawal period runs :
- from the day on which you, or a third party other than the carrier and designated by you, receive the order concerned,

6.5. In the event that you have validly exercised your right of withdrawal, you may return your product to us by post, at your expense, retaining proof of dispatch. Alternatively, you can return your product to us via the carrier who initially delivered it. We will then contact you within fourteen days to arrange a date for collection of the parcel by our carrier. In this case, we will ask you to pay a flat-rate fee of €14.90 (incl. VAT) to cover return costs.

6.6. Provided that your return was covered by the right of withdrawal and that the products were returned to us unused and with their packaging intact, we will refund all sums paid, including delivery costs, without undue delay and no later than fourteen days from the date on which we were informed of your decision to withdraw. We may defer reimbursement until the goods have been recovered or until you have provided proof of shipment of the goods, whichever comes first. We will make the refund using the same method of payment that you used for the original transaction.

6.7. The exercise of the right of withdrawal terminates the obligation of the parties to execute the order, as well as any ancillary contract, at no cost to you other than those relating to the return of the products.


7.1. In accordance with the legal provisions in force, we inform you that you benefit from a legal guarantee of conformity as well as a legal guarantee against hidden defects. Thus, we are liable for any lack of conformity or latent defect that may affect the item you have purchased, in accordance with Articles L. 217-3 et seq. of the French Consumer Code and Articles 1641 to 1649 of the French Civil Code, extracts of which are given below.

7.2. Conformity

In accordance with the legal provisions in force, you benefit from a legal guarantee of conformity under the conditions set out in articles L. 217-1 et seq. of the French Consumer Code. You have two years from delivery to take action. However, this warranty is limited to the expiration date of each product mentioned on its packaging, and to its intended use.
You do not need to prove the existence of a lack of conformity during the twenty-four months following delivery. We may rebut this presumption if it is not compatible with the nature of the good or the alleged lack of conformity.

The legal warranty of conformity applies independently of any commercial warranties.
In the event of a proven lack of conformity, we will replace the product at no charge to you.

In the event of a lack of conformity, you may request either repair or replacement of the product concerned. However, in the event that this choice would entail a cost manifestly disproportionate to the other method, given the value of the product or the extent of the defect, we will have the option of proceeding according to the method not chosen.

7.3. Hidden defects

We guarantee that the products ordered on our Site are free from hidden defects.
You may decide to invoke the warranty for latent defects under the conditions defined below:
In the event of a product defect, the latent defect warranty may only be invoked if you can prove that the defect predated the sale and was not apparent when the product was delivered, in accordance with article 1641 of the French Civil Code. The alleged defect must be sufficiently serious to render the product unfit for its intended use.
Under article 1648 of the French Civil Code, an action for latent defects must be brought within two (2) years of discovery of the defect.
Should the presence of a latent defect be established, you may choose between rescission of the sale or reduction of the price, in accordance with article 1644 of the French Civil Code.

7.4. In any event, any warranty is excluded in the event of normal wear and tear of your item or improper maintenance or use.


8.1. In accordance with the legal provisions in force, we are automatically responsible for the proper performance of obligations resulting from sales concluded via the Site.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, we may, however, exonerate ourselves from all or part of our liability by proving that the non-performance or improper performance of the contract is attributable either to our co-contractor, or to the unforeseeable and insurmountable act of a third party to the contract, or to a case of force majeure.

When the product presents either a defect of conformity or a hidden defect, you have the choice between the legal guarantee of conformity, provided for in article L217-3 of the French Consumer Code, and the guarantee against hidden defects of the thing sold, provided for in article 1641 of the French Civil Code.

8.2. We decline all responsibility in the event of damage inherent in or caused by the use of the Internet network, particularly with regard to access to and use of the Site.
