The credit note is personal and valid for one (1) year from its issue date, exclusively in the Store in which the purchase was made.

For gifts, the credit note cannot be issued in the recipient’s name, but the Customer’s name only.

The credit note cannot be swapped for cash or bought back, replaced or refunded if lost, stolen, illegible or expired. MESSIKA shall not be held responsible in the event of fraudulent use of the credit note by a third party.



Depending on technical feasibility, the Product may be refurbished by MESSIKA, at the Customer’s expense, upon presentation of receipt of purchase and the certificate of authenticity.



MESSIKA Products benefit from:

- the legal guarantee of conformity provided in articles L.217-4 and following of the Consumer Code.

Thus if the Product does not comply with the description given in the Store or is not suitable for the expected use, the Customer has 2 years from the delivery of the Product to invoke this guarantee and, according to their choice, have it repaired or replaced (subject to the cost conditions provided in article L.217-9 of the Consumer Code).

- the guarantee against hidden defects provided in articles 1641 to 1649 of the Civil Code.

As a result, if the Product is not suitable for its intended use or its use is diminished such that the Customer would not have bought it, due to hidden defects from the time prior to purchase, they have 2 years from discovery of the defect to act on the basis of the guarantee against hidden defects.

If a hidden defect is found the Customer may choose between having the price of the Product refunded or reduced according to article 1644 of the Civil Coderemind the terms of implementation of legal guarantees The Customer has a period of two years from the delivery of the goods to enforce the legal guarantee of conformity in the event of a lack of conformity. During this period, the Customer is only required to establish the existence of the lack of conformity, not the date of its occurrence.

When the sale contract of the goods provides for the continuous supply of digital content or a digital service for a duration exceeding two years, the legal guarantee applies to this digital content or digital service throughout the specified supply period. During this period, the Customer is only required to establish the existence of the lack of conformity affecting the digital content or digital service, not the date of its occurrence.

The legal guarantee of conformity entails an obligation for the professional, if applicable, to provide all necessary updates to maintain the conformity of the goods.

The legal guarantee of conformity gives the Customer the right to repair or replace the goods within thirty days of their request, at no cost and without major inconvenience to them.

If the goods are repaired under the legal guarantee of conformity, the Customer benefits from a six-month extension of the initial warranty.

If the Customer requests the repair of the goods but the seller insists on replacement, the legal guarantee of conformity is renewed for a period of two years from the date of replacement of the goods.

The Customer can obtain a price reduction by keeping the goods or terminate the contract and receive a full refund upon returning the goods if:

The professional refuses to repair or replace the goods.

Repair or replacement of the goods occurs after a period of thirty days.

Repair or replacement of the goods causes major inconvenience to the Customer, especially when the Customer permanently bears the costs of taking back or removing the non-compliant goods, or if they bear the installation costs of the repaired or replaced goods.

The non-conformity of the goods persists despite the unsuccessful attempt by the seller to bring the goods into conformity.

The Customer also has the right to a price reduction or contract resolution when the lack of conformity is so serious that an immediate reduction in price or contract resolution is justified. The Customer is not required to request the repair or replacement of the goods beforehand.


The Customer does not have the right to contract resolution if the lack of conformity is minor.

Any immobilization period of the goods for repair or replacement suspends the remaining warranty until the delivery of the repaired goods.

The rights mentioned above result from the application of articles L. 217-1 to L. 217-32 of the Consumer Code.

The seller who in bad faith obstructs the implementation of the legal guarantee of conformity incurs a civil fine of a maximum amount of 300,000 euros, which can be increased to 10% of the average annual turnover (Article L. 241-5 of the Consumer Code).

The Customer also benefits from the legal guarantee of hidden defects under Articles 1641 to 1649 of the Civil Code for a period of two years from the discovery of the defect. This guarantee entitles them to a price reduction if the goods are retained or a full refund upon return of the goods.
