his business card won't break any kind of current law or current rights.

The exact reproduction of the ordered printed
colours are not contractual because the reproduction is subject to variations
due to visualization and printed procedures and the nature of the
medium of printing. The order is passed based on a computer graphic
file of which the reproductions of colours vary along with a visualization
screen and printing devices. It is impossible for the seller to reproduce
the exact shade of colours of the conception screen of the purchaser
from which the seller has no knowledge. The seller only commits to respect
the colours of the graphic file such as his production line renders.
Despite accurate quality checks,
it is possible that minor drawbacks such as dots, small colour variations, intensity or cutting may occur during the production
process. The purchaser
admits this fact. In case the responsibility of the seller is engaged,
the amount can never exceed the value of the sold product.
The delivery will be sent to the address
indicated by the purchaser. The delivery means that the risks
are transferred to the purchaser. The seller refuses to accept responsibility
of the merchandise, even if the merchandise is sent carriage paid. The
risks are for the purchaser. On receipt of the merchandise the purchaser
has to check the compliancy of the parcel, the shipment note, to check
the weight at the reception of the parcel. Missing parts and eventual
reserves about the timeliness of the parcel have to be
communicated to the carrier immediately by registered post. Only
the carrier is responsible unless proved the contrary.
The delivery time is that indicated
on the final corrected proof which has been approved by the purchaser
on the seller's website. The delay will start after full payment of the
amount VAT included. The delay includes the postal delay which can vary
depending on the country. 3 working days for the United Kingdom , 6 working days for
the U.S.A. The seller engages himself to deposit the parcel at least 3 working
days before expiration of the contractual delay. The seller cannot
be considered responsible if the delay exceeds the one mentioned above.

in the following cases:
omission, inaccuracy of the information
given by the purchaser, non payment or incomplete payment which accompanies
the final corrected proof, technical hazards, exhaustion of stock, default
of the seller's supplier or carrier, postal strike, force
In case the delay of carrying out the
order does not enter in the cases above, the seller undertakes to pay off
the buyer 3 % of the price of the order for each day exceeding the delay.
Refund can never exceed 100 % of the amount of the order. To benefit from
this refund, the purchaser has to make the demand by registered letter
accompanied by a copy of the received business cards. The purchaser's
letter of complaint is no proof of exceeding the delay. Only the seller can
judge the exceeding of delay according to his expedition book.
A letter of complaint has to be sent within
a delay of 15 days as from date of reception of the business cards. After this
delay, no refund can be accepted.

of the product accompanied with a proof have to be sent to the

by the seller, the seller reserves the right to begin a new fabrication
of the business cards, and this will not be billed to the purchaser. No penalty
can be claimed from the seller. The business cards presenting faults should
be kept by the seller. If the faulty cards cannot be presented any new fabrication
will be the object of a new invoice.
