We reserve the right to make changes to the prices of our products. New prices take effect when the revised price is posted online. The prices indicated and the taxes in force will apply at the time of the order, subject to the availability of the products.

Delivery, verification upon receipt, conformity of products and right of withdrawal

 

The delivery times of our products, mentioned on the site or during the order confirmation, are indicative. They correspond to those communicated by the transport companies that we use to transport the goods to our customers. We have no direct control over the transport of goods.

Delays usually do not give rise to any compensation, unless the delivery was made more than 40 days after the order was shipped, in which case the Customer may request a refund of the shipping costs. We will endeavor to deal with any problems in the delivery of the products in collaboration with the transport companies and will keep the Customer informed of the progress of the situation.

In case of loss, theft, or deterioration of the parcel during its routing, we will reimburse the Customer as soon as the transport company confirms the anomaly and the corresponding compensation, within the framework of the basic guarantee or the complementary guarantee that we subscribe to during the preparation of the sending.

 

For certain destinations (in particular countries outside the European Union), we can agree with the customer on an economic shipment, without follow-up or compensation by the transport company in the event of loss, theft or damage to the package during its journey. The risk associated with the choice of this economical solution is the full responsibility of the Customer: any problem arising during transport cannot be the subject of any compensation.

 

If a Customer's order is not delivered and returned to us, we will contact the Customer to determine the source of the problem and agree on the next actions. If the Customer has not been able to receive the package and it is returned to us, we can resend it, at the Customer's expense. If the package was not delivered due to our fault, we will do our best to remedy the situation.

Upon receipt of the goods, the Customer checks the good condition and conformity of the products delivered. In the event of damaged packaging and/or missing product, the Customer must make the corresponding reservations to the carrier and inform us immediately by email sent to the following address: contact@thepickychemist.com, possibly accompanied by pictures representative of the product anomaly encountered.

In the absence of reservations made as described above, any complaint related to a problem occurring during transport cannot be accepted and our responsibility cannot be engaged.

 

A delivery error or non-compliance of a product with the order confirmation must be reported to us within 3 working days of delivery. Any complaint that would not be made within this period cannot be taken into account and our responsibility cannot be engaged.

 

Right of withdrawal: within 14 days of receipt, it is possible to return products to us, which may be refunded provided that the bags are in their original state, still sealed and in good condition. The refund (the price of the returned products as well as the shipping costs, in proportion to the total amount of the goods of this order), will take place within 14 days of the recovery of the goods.

Any special order that does not correspond to the standard offer available on the online sales site cannot be returned.

Any request for the return of a product whose bag has been opened will not be accepted.

Before returning an item, the Customer must contact us by email at the following address: contact@thepickychemist.com in order to obtain a return authorization. Without prior agreement for the return, no refund will be made.

Force Majeure

If the Force Majeure lasts more than 90 consecutive days, each of the parties may choose to terminate the sales contract unilaterally, by registered letter sent to the other party.
