ARTICLE 2 – PRODUCTS
The Products available are those shown on the website www.kietla.fr on the day the Internet User visits the site.
Products are offered within the limits of available stock.
Although the availability of the Products is regularly updated, Ki ET LA cannot be held liable in case of insufficient stock, and no compensation whatsoever can be claimed by the Internet User from Ki ET LA.
Ki ET LA agrees, however, to inform the Purchaser by email of the unavailability of Products within five (5) working days of the order date.
The Purchaser will have the option to cancel or modify the order by selecting another available Product. In the event of a cancellation, the payment will be refunded within ten (10) working days of the date of the Purchaser’s decision.
Ki ET LA shall not be held liable for stock shortage or product unavailability for orders not yet accepted by Ki ET LA.
Ki ET LA reserves the right to change the Products on the Site at any time without notice.
In order to ensure a better quality of service and availability of its Products to all Purchasers on the Site, Ki ET LA reserves the right to limit the quantity of Products that may be bought by a Purchaser, in accordance with the applicable provisions in this regard and in particular those of Article L.121-11 of the Consumer Code.
Ki ET LA provides photos and images of each Product on its website. They are provided for illustrative purposes only. The Internet User is encouraged to also refer to the detailed product description in addition to the visuals. Despite the care taken in putting them online, slight variations, independent of the main characteristics of the products, may exist and may depend on many factors, including screen configuration. Ki ET LA holds no responsibility for these variations.
The Purchaser is encouraged to read and comply with the information provided with the products. The Purchaser commits to use the Products according to their intended purpose. Ki ET LA cannot be held responsible for the misuse of Products.
ARTICLE 3 – PRICES
Product prices are expressed in euros including taxes and take into account the VAT applicable on the day of the order. Any rate change may be passed on to the price of the products sold by Ki ET LA.
Prices do not include postage & packaging costs, described in Article 9, which are automatically calculated and indicated in the Internet User’s basket according to the total amount of the order.
Ki ET LA reserves the right to change its prices at any time, however it is agreed that the price of the order on the day of its confirmation is the final price.
Products are invoiced on the basis of the prices displayed on the Site at the time of placing the order, subject to the availability of the Products ordered at that time.
All orders are payable in euros and must be paid for immediately at the time of placing the order.
If certain Products ordered are not available (see Article 2 “Products”), only the price and postage costs for the available Products will be charged.
ARTICLE 4 – ORDER TAKING
The Internet User wishing to place an order must:
- Select the desired product(s) by adding them to the shopping basket and click on “Confirm order” to order the products. The basket will thus constitute the order form.
- Sign in, either with a username or email and password if the Purchaser has already created an account (the Purchaser has the option of creating an account to facilitate his/her next order), or by directly entering the information required for the billing and delivery of Ki AND LA products. The information provided will then commit the Purchaser to completing payment for the order. Ki ET LA cannot be held responsible for the inability to fulfil the order if the information supplied by the Purchaser is missing and/or incorrect.
- Check the order: the Purchaser must verify the content of the order, the total price, the delivery and billing addresses, while maintaining the right to remove a Product or change the billing and delivery addresses.
- Read and accept the general terms and conditions of sale by ticking the appropriate box.
- Choose your payment method. The order is automatically validated and constitutes an irrevocable commitment on the part of the Purchaser, which can only be called into question in the limited cases provided for by these conditions (see right to rescind).
ARTICLE 5 – ORDER CONFIRMATION
After confirming the order with a click (electronic signature), the Site www.kietla.fr automatically sends a confirmation email to the Purchaser, provided that the email address indicated in the registration form does not contain any errors.

Ki ET LA reserves the right to reject the order in case of:
- abnormal orders in terms of quantities ordered,

ARTICLE 7 – RESERVATION OF OWNERSHIP
The goods remain the full property of Ki ET LA until the final receipt of the full amount corresponding to the ordered products and other additional costs.

ARTICLE 9 – DELIVERY COSTS

Upon delivery, the Purchaser is required to check the conformity of the Products received in relation to what was ordered. Any anomaly such as:
- products not in conformity with the order,
- faulty goods,
must be declared and justified to Ki ET LA via the form available at https://www.kietla.fr/besoin-daide-formulaire-de-contact/ within 14 days of receipt of the order. After this period, and except in the case of latent faults, no claim will be accepted by Ki ET LA, the products being deemed to be in conformity.
Once the non-compliance or defect has been noted, Ki ET will propose to the Purchaser:
- either a replacement of the product(s) courtesy of Ki ET LA,
- or the refunding of the price of the order (price of the Products and delivery costs), not later than fifteen (15) days from the receipt of the non-compliant product by Ki ET LA. The return of the non-compliant product will then be the responsibility of Ki ET LA (via a pre-paid return slip).
The Purchaser must use the return form and attach the pre-completed and printed return voucher to the package. No return will be accepted without the completed return voucher.
The Products must be returned in their original packaging, along with their tag and any accessories necessary for their re-marketing, to the following address:

Article 13.1 – Legal guarantees
The Products sold by Ki ET LA are subject to the conditions of legal guarantees laid down in articles L.217-4 to L.217-14 of the Consumer Code and articles 1641 to 1648 of the Civil Code.
Ki ET LA will not accept any claim relating to Products that have been used improperly.
Any claim concerning the Products and as such and without links to the delivery must be made by registered letter with proof of delivery to customer services at the following address: Ki ET LA SAS – Zone du Ragon Bel A2 – 28 Rue Louis Pasteur – 44119 TREILLIERES – France.
In case of lack of conformity and/or latent defects acknowledged by Ki ET LA, if the Purchaser wishes to return the Product, it must be sent to the following address: Ki ET LA SAS – Zone du Ragon Bât A2 – 28 Rue Louis Pasteur – 44119 TREILLIERES – France. The Purchaser must have obtained a return number from customer services in advance as well as any postage details. No packages will be accepted without a return number. This number must be clearly stated on the package.
Legal guarantee of compliance:
Ki ET LA will deliver to the Purchaser a Product in conformity with the order and free of defects when said Product is delivered, in the sense that the Product will be suitable for the intended use of a similar item and that it will have the characteristics presented at the time of the sale.
Ki ET LA also responds to lack of conformity resulting from packaging and instructions for use.
Legal guarantee of latent defects:
Ki ET LA will provide the Purchaser with a Product free of latent defects that would make it unfit for the intended use, or which would diminish said use, to an extent that it would only have been purchased at a lower price or not at all had said defects been known.
These guarantees will only be in place on the condition that the Purchaser states the demand within 24 months of receipt of the Product (for the legal guarantee of compliance) or upon discovery of the defect (for the legal guarantee of latent defects).
Defects of conformity that appear within 24 months of delivery are presumed to have existed at the time of delivery, unless proven otherwise.
In the event of acknowledged lack of conformity concerning a Product sold by Ki ET LA, the Purchaser may choose between the repair or replacement of the Product unless one of these choices results in a manifestly disproportionate cost to Ki ET LA. If the repair or replacement of the Product is impossible, the Purchaser may be refunded the price paid and return the Product, or keep the Product and receive a partial refund, unless the non-conformity is minor.
In the event of a latent defect noted on a Product sold by Ki ET LA, the Purchaser will have the choice to return the Product and have the price and expenses incurred by the sale returned or to keep the Product and receive a portion of the price returned.
In any case, it is the responsibility of the Purchaser to prove that the conditions of the guarantee are met.
The return, replacement or refund of the Product shall be made at no cost to the Purchaser.
Article 13.2 – Contractual guarantees for the “0 to 6 years” range
Ki ET LA reminds you that the products, services and information offered by Ki ET LA do not in any way substitute for the constant vigilance of adults.
Ki ET LA sunglasses frames and lenses are guaranteed unbreakable for a period of 3 years, thanks in part to their single piece frames and the “zigzag” technology that replaces traditional hinges.
The Ki ET LA unbreakable guarantee applies when the product is used under normal conditions and for the intended purpose. All defective product returns will be subject to inspection and approval by Ki ET LA before a product is replaced (see Article 10- Return and Exchange). This guarantee is valid for European Union countries.
Ki AND LA sun lenses are designed to be easily removed and put back so that they can be replaced by vision correction lenses. Ki ET LA advises you to ask your optician for advice for changing your sun lenses.
In the event that the customer loses the product or its accessories, Ki ET LA will not be held liable, and no after-sales service will be available to exchange or refund the lost product.
ARTICLE 14 – FORCE MAJEURE
Force majeure refers to all unavoidable and unforeseeable external circumstances beyond the reasonable control of the concerned party.
In the event that Ki ET LA is prevented or delayed in the execution of its commitments by a force majeure, Ki ET LA undertakes to inform the Purchaser within 72 hours, specifying the precise elements constituting the force majeure, and the reasonable expected duration of the delay or impediment.
Ki ET LA will then no longer be liable for failure to comply or for late fulfilment of its obligations, but undertakes to make its best efforts to resume full compliance without delay.
In such a case of force majeure, Ki ET LA may at its discretion terminate the order or any part of it, without any commitment of responsibility, but only to reimburse the Purchaser for the sums already paid. In no way may the Purchaser invoke a case of force majeure to avoid, even temporarily, an obligation to pay a sum of money.
