Nevertheless, BME informs the Client that, despite all the care it has taken, the photographs cannot ensure a perfect similarity with the product offered for sale, particularly with regard to colors. The differences may result from the color quality of the photographs, the difficulty of rendering the materials on the screen or, without being exhaustive, the technical adaptation.  

Indeed, the Products sold may have a slightly different appearance, particularly in terms of color and materials, and may have minor imperfections related to the natural materials used (wood, leather ...), which may change from one product to another or from one manufacture to another or with time and depending on storage conditions.

Article 10. Personal data 

Within the framework of the execution of the contract, BME shall collect certain personal data directly from the Client. This data is collected to process the Client's Order, ensure its payment, provide delivery and follow-up services for the Order and generally monitor the contractual relationship.  

As such, BME acts as a Data Controller and is therefore responsible for compliance with the obligations arising from European Regulation No. 2016/679, known as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), concerning the collection and processing of personal data carried out. 


The personal data processed by BME are identification data (surname, first name), personal data (personal postal address, personal telephone number, personal e-mail address), professional data (job title, professional e-mail address, professional telephone number), economic data (bank details, payment data).  

BME does not collect any sensitive data such as religion, trade union membership, racial and ethnic origin, criminal convictions or health-related data. 


For BME, the protection of personal data is fundamental because it reflects the relationship with Clients. BME has therefore appointed an external Data Protection Officer (DPO) and implements all the technical and organizational measures necessary to protect the Client data processed.  

Thus and in accordance with the provisions of the RGPD, BME keeps the data concerning the Client in accordance with its legal and regulatory obligations in terms of prescription. The data is transmitted only to BME's internal departments. Except for the above-mentioned recipients and BME's subcontractors who are necessary for the performance of its services, BME will never communicate the Client's personal data to third parties or external organizations without the Client's express consent.  


As such, the Client has the right to access, rectify, oppose, limit and delete the processing of his data. For further information or for any request concerning the exercise of his rights, the Client may consult BME's Personal Data Protection Policy on its website, contact its DPO at the following address: rgpd@brunomoinardeditions.com or file a complaint with a supervisory authority (CNIL): https://www.cnil.fr/fr/agir. 


Article 11. Mediation

In accordance with the provisions of article L.616-1 of the French Consumer Code, the Client is informed that he may, free of charge, in the event of a complaint relating to the Website, to these GTC or to an order not resolved amicably by BME's Client service and after prior written request by the Client who has not been satisfied for less than one year, have recourse to a mediation service. 

As such, BME adheres to the service of the e-commerce mediator of the FEVAD (Federation of e-commerce and distance selling) (hereinafter the "Mediator") whose contact details are as follows: 60 rue la Boétie, 75008 Paris - www.mediateurfevad.fr. 

To find out how to contact the Mediator, Clients are invited to visit www.mediateurfevad.fr/index.php/espace-consommateur/. In order for the Client's referral to the Mediator to be admissible, the request must include: the Client's postal, telephone and e-mail address, the Client number and/or the Order number, the date of the Order, the dispute encountered, and written proof of the steps taken by the Client to resolve the dispute amicably with the BME prior to the referral to the mediator, the solutions proposed by the company and the Client's expectations. 

Under the terms of article L6152-2 of the French Consumer Code, a dispute cannot be examined by the consumer Mediator when: 

- The Client does not justify having tried, beforehand, to resolve his dispute directly with the trader by a written complaint according to the modalities provided for, if any, in the GTC, 

- the request is manifestly unfounded or abusive, 

- the dispute has been previously considered or is being considered by another mediator or by a court, 

- the Client has lodged his request with the Mediator within a period of more than one year from the date of his written complaint to the professional, 

- the dispute does not fall within its jurisdiction. 

The Client is informed by the Mediator, within a period of three weeks from the receipt of his file, of the rejection of his request for mediation. 

In accordance with European Regulation No. 524/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 21 May 2013, the Client may also refer to the online dispute resolution platform via the following address: https://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/. 

Article 12. Applicable law and competent jurisdiction 

The GTC are governed by French law.

Any dispute relating to the interpretation or execution of the GTC’s shall give rise to a preliminary amicable mediation with a view to resolving the dispute in accordance with the conditions set out in article 12 above. Any seizure of a jurisdiction in violation of this obligation shall constitute an end of non-receipt.  

In the absence of an amicable agreement, any dispute relating to the formation, execution, interpretation, and termination to which the GTC’s could give rise, even in the event of recourse to a guarantee or multiple defendants, shall fall under the exclusive jurisdiction of the French courts.
