In all cases, the package must not have been opened.
8.4 For deliveries to collection points, without prejudice to the time frames afforded to the Customer under their cancellation right as specified in Article 9 below, it is the Customer's responsibility to check the packaging of the parcel before accepting it.

The refund of this sum will be deferred until the returned products are received.
9.3 Any returned product that is incomplete, spoiled, used, damaged, deteriorated or consumed, even in part, will not be refunded. Similarly, the Customer may be held liable in the event of depreciation of the products resulting from handling other than that necessary to establish the nature, essential characteristics and proper functioning of the products.
