2. Content

These Terms and Conditions apply to interactions between:

  • My American Market (“MyAM”), and
  • Any natural person acting as a consumer as defined by law and legal precedent (the “Customer”) who wishes to make a purchase via the MyAM website (https://myamericanmarket.com, the “Site”).

By purchasing a product on the Site, the Customer agrees to be unconditionally bound by these Terms and Conditions.

MyAM reserves the right to modify its Terms and Conditions at any time. In this case, the applicable Terms and Conditions shall be those in effect on the date the Customer orders a product on the Site.


3. Products

3.1 Availability

MyAM informs the Customer of product availability on the Site in real time.
However, if products are unavailable after the order has been placed, MyAM shall inform the Customer as soon as possible and offer to refund the amount of the unavailable products in the form of a coupon valid for one year on the Site or in monetary form.

3.2 Description

MyAM takes the utmost care to ensure that the presentation and description of the products on the Site are as accurate as possible, in accordance with the best industry standards, but within the limits of the technology and computer equipment used. It is therefore possible that non-substantial errors may appear on the Site, which the Customer acknowledges and accepts.

Given the digital presentation of products on the Site, it is also possible that the Customer's perception of the photograph of a product does not correspond exactly to the product itself. MyAM shall not be liable for any such non-substantial errors in the photographic representation of a product on the Site or in perception. In any event, should a delivered product not conform to the description on the Site, the Customer may either exercise their right of withdrawal or invoke the legal guarantee of conformity under the conditions set forth below (Sections 9 and 11).


4. Pricing

The prices of the products listed on the Site include all taxes and duties in euros, excluding delivery charges. MyAM reserves the right to change its prices at any time. However, the price shown on the Site at the time the order is confirmed shall be the only price that applies to the Customer.

The price indicated in the order confirmation includes all taxes, delivery charges, and processing fees.

The Customer is responsible for any applicable taxes such as customs duties or local VAT that may be claimed by the local authorities of the destination country.

The minimum order amount (excluding delivery charges) is €5, except when using a coupon code.


5. Discounts

Coupon codes sent to the Customer by e-mail can be applied to a future online order, subject to the conditions specified in the offer.

8. Shipping

All shipping methods and delivery times are described on the Site’s « Shipping » page.

Customers in continental France and Europe will be able to track their packages. Emails containing tracking information will be sent to the Customer by our partner ShipUp.

The delivery times mentioned on the Site at the time of order are effective from the time the order is confirmed (i.e., after payment confirmation) and are communicated to the Customer in the e-mail sent by MyAM after confirmation.
Delivery times are provided as estimates only.
If the actual delivery time exceeds what the Customer considers acceptable, and in any event exceeds the legal delivery time of 30 days, the sales agreement may be terminated. The merchandise shall then be returned to the warehouse at MyAM’s expense and the Customer shall be refunded the amount paid at the time of order confirmation.
The sales agreement shall be considered terminated once MyAM receives the letter or written notice from the Customer, unless the agreement was fulfilled between the sending of the letter and its reception by MyAM.

MyAM shall not be held liable for any delay caused by a supplier.

11. Legal Guarantees

11-1 Legal guarantee of conformity
All products sold by MyAM are subject to the legal guarantees defined in Articles L.217-4 to L.217-14 of the French Consumer Code, in particular:

  • Article L.217–4:
    “The seller shall deliver a product that conforms with the agreement and shall be liable for any defects in conformity existing at the time of delivery.
    The seller is also responsible for any defects in conformity resulting from the packaging, the assembly instructions, or the installation when the seller is responsible for such installation under the agreement or when the installation was carried out under the seller’s responsibility.”
  • Article L.217–5:
    “A product conforms with the agreement:
    1. If it is fit for the purpose usually expected of such products and, where applicable:
    • if it corresponds to the description provided by the seller and possesses the qualities that the seller has presented to the buyer in the form of a sample or model;
    • if it presents the qualities that a buyer can legitimately expect in view of the public disclosures made by the seller, the manufacturer or its representative, particularly in advertisements or on labelling
    2° Or if it has the characteristics defined by mutual agreement between the parties or is fit for any special purpose sought by the buyer, made known to and accepted by the seller.”
  • Article L.217–12:
    “Legal action resulting from non-conformity is limited to two years after the delivery of the good.”
  • Article L.217–8:
    “The buyer is entitled to demand that the goods conform to the agreement. The buyer may not, however, challenge conformity by invoking a defect of which the buyer was aware or could not have been unaware of when they entered into the agreement. […]”

Implementation of the guarantee of conformity
In the event of non-conformity, MyAM shall offer the Customer a replacement or refund of the product. The choice shall be up to the Customer, except where this would entail disproportionate costs for MyAM.
The Customer shall be entitled to have the agreement terminated or reduced (i.e., the price of the goods shall be reduced) if the defect is major and the time taken to find a solution exceeds one (1) month from the date of the request, or if no solution is feasible.
The Customer will not be charged for the replacement, repair, termination or reduction of the agreement.

11-2 Legal guarantee against hidden defects
This guarantee is defined by Articles 1641 to 1649 of the French Civil Code, partially reproduced below:
The seller is bound to a guarantee against hidden defects in the thing sold that render it unfit for its intended use, or that so impair its use that the buyer would not have bought it, or would only have given a lesser price for it if the buyer had known of the defects.
The legal guarantee covers all the expenses caused by the hidden defects.
The seller is not liable for obvious defects which the buyer could ascertain themselves. The seller is liable for hidden defects, if unknown to the seller, unless the seller has stipulated that they would not be bound to any guarantee in this case.
The defect must exist prior to the sale and make the products unfit for their intended purpose.
The buyer has the choice between returning the item and receiving a full refund or keeping the item and receiving a partial refund.
