To avoid any complications arising when you take delivery of your parcel we would ask you to read the following information carefully: For any order delivered in mainland France (including Corsica), the delivery company shall hand the parcel over to the recipient named on the consignment note, after it has been signed for. If there is nobody to receive the parcel, and unless technically unfeasible for the delivery company, you shall receive an attempted delivery notice giving details of the post office from which you will have 14 days to collect your parcel, you will need to provide proof of identity.

Once you take delivery of your order, please check the condition of your parcel and that the item ordered is as it should be and that the customization conforms with your order. If you see that your parcel or your item has been damaged, we would ask you to detail this on the delivery company’s delivery note, and to contact our Online Shopping Customer Service Department immediately: contact@empreintelatelierlingerie.com . In your message, please ensure that you describe the damage (the parcel is damp, opened, has holes, etc.). In any case, from when you receive your parcel you have a three (3) day period, excluding bank holidays, to inform the delivery company of any reservations you may have, by an extrajudicial document1 or a recorded delivery letter (article L133-3 of the French Consumer Code). If the item(s) delivered is/are not what you ordered, you may return them, in accordance with the “Returns” and “Guarantees” procedures set out below.


Given the unique and customized nature of made-to-measure items, in accordance with article L121-20-2 of the French Consumer Code they cannot be taken back or exchanged: “The right of withdrawal cannot be exercised unless the parties have agreed otherwise, for contracts: (…) 3° The supply of goods made to the customer’s specifications or clearly personalized …”. This means that you have no power to put forward any right of withdrawal. We would therefore recommend that you devote ample time and care when creating your customized item.

See Clause 7
