General terms and conditions of sale


1.1 These General Terms and Conditions of Sale ("the GTCS") determine the rights and obligations of the parties in the context of the online sale of Products offered by the company My Wooden Rings  ("the Company").

1.2 Any Order placed on the My Wooden Rings website implies the prior and unrestricted acceptance of these General Terms and Conditions of Sale, which are subject to French law. These GTCS are therefore an integral part of the Contract between the Customer and the Company. They are fully enforceable against the Customer, who declares that he/she has read them and accepted them, without restriction or reservation, before placing the Order.

1.3 These General Terms and Conditions shall apply to any Order placed by an individual of legal age acting as a consumer. The Customer hereby certifies that he/she is a natural person over 18 years of age, acting for purposes that do not fall within the scope of his/her commercial, industrial, craft, liberal or agricultural activity. He acknowledges having the full capacity to commit himself when placing an Order and undertakes to provide truthful information regarding his identity.

1.4 EXCLUSION: Persons acting in a professional capacity, i.e., natural or legal persons, public or private, who are acting for purposes within the scope of their commercial, industrial, craft, liberal or agricultural activity, including if they are acting in the name of or on behalf of another professional, are expressly excluded from the scope of these GTCS.
Professionals who wish to place an Order with the Company are invited to contact us directly.

1.5 The terms and conditions applicable to each Order are those in force on the date of payment (or the first payment in the case of multiple payments) of the Order. The Company reserves the right to modify them at any time, by publishing a new version on its website. These GTCS are available on the Company's website at the following address: and can be downloaded in pdf format.


2.1. Ordering process

To purchase one or more Products on the site, the Customer selects each Product and adds it to his/her basket. Once the selection is complete, the Customer must confirm his or her basket to proceed with the Order (1st click)

At this stage, the Customer is redirected to a page containing
A summary of the selected Products, the corresponding prices, the terms and conditions and the delivery charges. It is then up to the Customer to check and possibly correct the contents of his/her basket.
The present GTCS. It is the customer's responsibility to read them carefully before validating the entire Order.

This validation of the Order after verification of the shopping cart and reading of the GTCS (2nd click) is equivalent to the conclusion of the Contract and the Customer acknowledges that the 2nd click entails an obligation of payment on his/her part.

The Customer is then redirected to the payment page. The Customer can choose between the different payment methods offered and proceed with the payment of his/her Order.

Once the Order has been validated and payment has been made, the Client will receive a confirmation message from the Company to the e-mail address he/she provided to create his/her account. This message contains, in pdf format
A summary of the order (selected products, price, delivery terms and costs);
The precise identification of the company My Wooden Rings;
The Order number;
The terms, conditions and withdrawal form;
The present GTCS in the format.

If the Customer does not receive the Order confirmation, he/she is advised to contact the Company via the contact form on the site.

The Customer will then receive an electronic invoice for the purchase, which the Customer expressly accepts.

The Customer is strongly advised to keep this confirmation message and the purchase invoice, which is also sent to him in electronic format, as these documents may be produced as proof of the Contract.

2.2 Refusal by the Company to validate the Order

The Company reserves the right to refuse your Order for any legitimate reason, including for example:
Order not in compliance with the GTCS;
Quantities ordered that do not correspond to normal use by a consumer Customer;
Non-payment of a previous Order or an ongoing dispute concerning a previous Order;
Suspicion of fraud on the Order (supported by a body of corroborating evidence).


3.1 Product Specifications

The essential characteristics of the goods and their respective prices are made available to the Customer on the Company's websites, as well as, where applicable, information on the use of the product.

While the Company takes reasonable care to ensure that the Specifications are accurate, such Specifications, subject to certain exceptions, such as pricing information, are provided by the Company's suppliers. Accordingly, the Company assumes no responsibility for any errors that may be contained in the Specifications.

The Specifications are presented in detail and in French. The Parties agree that the illustrations, videos or photos of the Products offerted for sale have no contractual value. The validity period of the offre of the Products as well as their prices is specified on the Company's websites.

3.2 Availability of Products

The offers of Products are valid within the limit of stocks available from our suppliers. This availability of Products is normally indicated on the specific page of the Product.

However, insofar as the Company does not reserve stock (except in particular cases of Products indicated as pre-orders on the Product page), placing a Product in the shopping cart does not absolutely guarantee the availability of the Product and its price.

In the event that a Product becomes unavailable after the validation of the Client's Order, the Company shall immediately inform the Client by e-mail. The Order shall be automatically cancelled and the Company shall refund the price of the Product initially ordered, as well as any amount paid for the Order.

However, if the Order contains other Products than the one that has become unavailable, these will be delivered to the Customer and the delivery charges will not be refunded.


4.1 Reference prices indicated on the Sites

The reference price of the Products offered on the site is the price recommended by the brand, the manufacturer or its official representative. Otherwise, it is a price determined according to the prices at which the Product is commonly sold in a panel of retailers distributing it. This price is updated as soon as the brand, the manufacturer or its official representative communicates a new recommended price for the Product or as soon as the price practiced within the panel of retailers is modified.

4.2 Modification of prices indicated on the sites

The prices of the Products are indicated on the pages of description of the Products. They are indicated exclusive of tax, customs duties and shipping costs. The Company reserves the right to modify the prices of the Products at any time, in compliance with the applicable legislation.

The Products ordered will be invoiced on the basis of the price in force on the site at the time the Order is validated.

4.3 Product prices

Insofar as many Products are imported from abroad (outside the European Union) at the request of Customers, the prices of Products sold through the Websites are indicated in Euros, excluding taxes (excluding VAT and customs duties) unless otherwise indicated. They are precisely determined on the pages describing the Products. They are also indicated in Euros excluding tax (excluding VAT and customs duties), unless otherwise indicated, on the Product Order page, and excluding specific shipping costs.

The prices of the Products do not include import VAT, import taxes or customs duties, which shall be paid in addition and shall be entirely at the expense of the Customer, who shall be liable for such taxes as the recipient of the Product.

The prices of the Product(s) do not include the costs of packaging, packing, shipping, insurance and delivery of the Product(s) to the delivery address.

4.4 Payment of taxes

The Customer is solely responsible for the declaration and payment of import VAT when clearing the Product through customs. The Customer may be required to pay the import VAT. To the extent that the Company is not responsible for this tax, the Company shall not be liable for any refund of such tax.

For all products shipped outside the European Union and/or French overseas departments and territories, the price is automatically calculated exclusive of tax on the invoice. Customs duties or other local taxes or import duties or state taxes may be payable in certain cases. The Company has no control over these duties and amounts.

They shall be borne by the Client and are the Client's responsibility (declarations, payment to the competent authorities, etc.). The Company invites the Client to inquire about these aspects with the corresponding local authorities.


5.1 Time of payment

Payment of the full price of the Order must be made immediately after the Order has been confirmed.

The Company may, exceptionally, grant payment in several instalments, in particular in view of the amount to be paid and its knowledge of the Client concerned. However, the Company is under no obligation to grant such payment terms. In the event of a particular situation, the Client may request this by contacting the Company's Customer Service at the following address

5.2 Payment methods

To pay for the Order, the Client may choose between different payment methods:

Payment by credit card:
Only bank cards linked to a banking establishment located in France or international bank cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Maestro) are accepted. The Client guarantees the Company that he/she has the necessary authorizations to pay with the bank card used. The Customer expressly acknowledges that the commitment to pay by card is irrevocable and that the communication of his/her bank card number is equivalent to authorization to debit his/her account for the total amount corresponding to the Products ordered. The amount will be debited at the time of validation of the Order.
Payments by credit card are made via a secure payment platform and the information on the credit cards communicated benefits from the SSL encryption process.

Payment via Paypal
Payment by Paypal is accepted up to a limit of 1.000 €.
It is underlined that in case of recourse to this method of payment, the General Conditions of Use of Paypal, which are available on their site, are added to the present GCS.

Payment by vouchers and/or promotional codes
Vouchers and/or promotional codes issued by the Company may be used to pay for all or part of the Order. These vouchers and/or promotional codes are valid only once. In the event of an attempt to fraudulently use the vouchers and/or promotional codes, the Company may proceed with the outright cancellation of the Order.

In general, in the event of refusal to authorize payment by officially accredited organizations or in the event of non-payment of the Order, the Company reserves the right to suspend and/or cancel said Order.

The Company reserves the right to suspend any of the payment methods at any time, in particular in the event that a payment service provider no longer offers the service used or in the event of a dispute with a Customer concerning a previous Order.

The Company reserves the right to set up a procedure for verifying Orders to ensure that no one uses another person's bank details without their knowledge. As part of this verification process, the Client may be asked to send a copy of his or her identity card, proof of address and a copy of the credit card used for payment to the Company by e-mail or by post. Precise indications on the exact content of the requested information (to preserve the confidentiality of its data) will be communicated to the Customer in case of verification. The order will be validated only after receipt and verification of the documents sent.


6.1 Delivery

Prior to the validation of the Order, the Company shall provide the Client with information concerning the different delivery methods and their respective prices. Once the Client has chosen the delivery method, the Company shall provide the Client with an estimated delivery time.

In view of the current health situation and due to a high number of orders, orders placed from 28/11/2020 to 23/12/2020 cannot be delivered before Christmas. During this period a banner at the top of the site is present to warn you.

The Company will do its utmost to ensure that the Product(s) are delivered no later than the scheduled delivery date. In case of difficulty, the Company undertakes to contact the Customer promptly to inform him/her and to seek an appropriate solution.

The air transport, shipping and/or delivery of the Product(s) will be fully paid by the Customer ("Delivery Costs"). These delivery costs are included in the final price invoiced to the Customer at the time of the Order. However, any customs fees are not included in the price invoiced to the Customer by the Company.

Depending on the methods chosen by the Customer, delivery shall be made either to the address given by the Customer or, where applicable, to a relay point chosen by the Customer from the list of available points. It is therefore incumbent upon the Customer to check the information provided for the delivery, as he/she alone is responsible for any failure to deliver due to incomplete or erroneous information.

6.2 Customs clearance

At the time of his purchase, the Customer buys the product free of tax and becomes the importer of the product purchased in his capacity as recipient of the product.

The Customer is therefore responsible for the import and customs clearance of the Product with the local customs offices. Depending on the price of his order, he may be asked to pay customs duties (for Products with a customs value of more than 150 €).

The Customer is solely responsible for the declaration process of the customs duties when clearing the Product. These customs duties, which are not invoiced to the Client by the Company, are not the responsibility of the Company. Therefore, the Company shall not be liable for the reimbursement of such duties.

6.3. Receipt

Upon receipt of the Product, the Client undertakes to check that the Product is complete and undamaged.

In the event of an anomaly, the Customer must contact the Company's Customer Service within three days (excluding public holidays) following the date of receipt of the Product. Any claim filed after this time cannot be processed.


1. In case of damage, quality defect or missing, the buyer has 14 days to contact the customer service and will be able, at the choice of the buyer, to obtain free replacement or refund of the products, excluding any compensation. All products are guaranteed for a period of 2 years.
