Article 6 - Delivery or Fulfillment of the Order

The photographs are delivered to the shipping address indicated during the ordering process. Possible means of shipping depend on the quantity and size of the good(s) ordered and the country of delivery.  Depending on the availability of the items, shipping or the fulfillment of your order will be within 2 to 10 working days from the payment date or the date of receipt of the cheque.  All of the delivery times indicated on the site are shown in working days and do not take into account transit time or shipment (depending on destination).  In case of delay an email will be sent to the Buyer.  The dates and delivery times mentioned are indicative.

Article 7 - Receipt of Delivery

 Upon receipt of your package, it is imperative to check the contents in front of the delivery person.  If you do not personally take delivery of the parcel, ensure that the person responsible for receiving the package verifies its contents.  No claims will be accepted if you do not clearly state on the delivery receipt any damage found on the product.  Writing “subject to unpacking” or anything that does not specifically describe the problem is not admissible and can not give rise to any exchange or replacement.  Do not sign the delivery receipt if the order arrived damaged. No claim will be accepted if the delivery receipt is signed.  If the goods arrive damaged in any way, it is essential that the Buyer fill out a “Report of Damages” with the postman or the post office in their area.  If you refuse acceptance of the package, the Buyer must have the post office return the goods to DARKROOM Galerie, accompanied by a "Report of Damages" (Report 170) and keep a copy of this form. This form must be sent to DARKROOM Galerie in order to investigate and initiate proceedings for compensation.

Article 8 - Right of Withdrawal

According to the provisions of Article 121-16 of the Consumer Code, the Buyer has a period of 7 days from the receipt of the order to return the good(s) at their own expense and request an exchange or refund. A framed image or a laminated photograph is a custom made work ordered by the Buyer.  DARKROOM Galerie will therefore not reimburse the Buyer on these works.  The right of withdrawal is accepted only on the sale of a printed photograph.

Article 9 - Return of Goods

In the event that the goods received do not conform to the order, you have a right of return.  Any return of goods will be in accordance with a formal agreement between the Buyer and DARKROOM Galerie.  In this case, please contact DARKROOM Galerie for the address and the method in which the goods should be returned.  DARKROOM Galerie will exchange the damaged item, within the limits of available stocks.  If an article is no longer available, DARKROOM Galerie will allow you to select another item of equivalent value.  When returning an item, all shipping fees to return said item will be borne by the Buyer; DARKROOM Galerie will pay for shipping of the replacement item.  The goods must be returned in their original packaging.  Goods returned that are incomplete, broken, damaged or soiled by the Buyer (fingerprints or stains of any kind) are not accepted.
