Before any reshipment, La Mise en Bière may ask the Customer to pay the related costs. La Mise en Bière makes its best efforts to ensure that the ordered products are dispatched within 10 Working Days, starting from the date of sending the Order Confirmation.

In the event of apparent defects, the Customer (or any other person receiving the goods for him) must indicate this on the delivery note, in the form of a handwritten reservation accompanied by his signature. In the absence of such a reservation, such defects shall be considered as accepted. In the case of defects that are not apparent at the time of delivery against signature or in the absence of such a delivery method, the Customer must notify the Customer Service of any defect within 3 Business Days as of becoming aware of the defect, failing which the defect will be considered accepted.

Under no circumstances does La Mise en Bière guarantee the guarantee offered by the manufacturer. IN ADDITION TO THE MANUFACTURER'S WARRANTY, LA MISE EN BIERE DOES NOT OFFER ANY WARRANTY WHATSOEVER.
