ARTICLE 6 - CUSTOMER'S OBLIGATIONS
When placing an order, the customer must fill out the form describing the cards ("the Form") that he/she wishes to have appraised. By completing the Form, the client declares and guarantees that :
All the information entered in the Form is accurate and corresponds to the cards that he is about to send and that he owns.
In the event that the cards sent are different from those indicated in the order form, the Provider is entitled to cancel the order without performing the service. The refund will be made minus the return shipping costs. The Provider will contact the customer to find an intermediate solution (rework the order or send the missing cards). An adjustment fee of 5€ per card may be charged and the processing time will be increased, canceling the previous indicative processing. time.
The information entered follows the specific instructions available on the fields of the Form.
In case of doubt about the data entry, the customer can validate his order but must specify his doubts or errors in the space "comment" of the order intended for this purpose. The customer also has the possibility to contact the Provider by email at firstname.lastname@example.org to inform the Provider of any doubts or errors on the order entry.
If the Customer does not comply with this obligation, the processing time may be increased up to 14 additional days. If the Provider believes at its discretion that this obligation has not been met on too many fields and that this impacts the processing time of the order considerably, the Provider will have the option to cancel the order and refund the customer, less the shipping costs incurred for the return of the cards.
The Declared Value of each card is correctly estimated and corresponds to the monetary value of the good on the market at the time the order is issued for the card, its condition, its language in accordance with the provisions set out in Article 7 "DECLARED VALUE". In the event of an incorrect value being entered, the penalties applied are indicated in Article 7 "DECLARED VALUE".
The cards they are about to send are among the cards accepted by the Provider. The list of non-compliant and rejected cards and the actions applicable in the event of sending the latter are available in Article 8 "NON-CONFORMING / REFUSED CARDS".
The cards will be properly protected in accordance with the Sending Guide and every effort will be made to ensure that they arrive in the same condition as when they were sent.
The delivery of the parcel will be done according to the modalities expressed in the article 9 " DELIVERY / TRANSPORT / PICK-UP AND DEPOSIT".

In case of disagreement with the grade received, the customer will not be able to engage the responsibility of the Provider nor to claim a lack of conformity.
That he/she agrees and understands that a certification ordered without insurance shall not give rise to any claim, and that he/she waives any action against the Provider in case of damage or unintentional loss as described in Section 10 "CARD HANDLING AND INSURANCE POLICY".
ARTICLE 7 - DECLARED VALUE
When completing the order form, the customer must indicate the declared value of each card he wishes to have appraised. For our use, the declared value of a card is defined as follows:
"The declared value is the estimated monetary value of the good on the market at the time of the order. It is expressed in euros and its determination can be based on the following elements:
Recent sales on online sales platforms
Average price of current ads on these platforms
Recent prices at official auctions
Expertise from reputable stores or regular collectors
Current market interest rate for the card.
This value fluctuates but can be determined approximately by any Internet user at any given time."
It is important that the customer take the time and use the resources at their disposal to correctly estimate the value of their cards. The declared value will impact the following elements:
- Certification fee
- Insurance at the Provider's warehouse.
- Insurance during transport.
- Value taken into account for any future request made to CCC Grading.
The Provider therefore requires the client to provide a realistic, honest and researched estimate based on several sources.
In the event of a value deemed grossly underestimated by the Client, the Provider may request an additional payment to make up any shortfall after reassessing the costs associated with the new honestly estimated value at CCC Grading's discretion. Such reassessment of costs shall be made in accordance with the standard rates charged by the Provider.
A processing fee of 1€ per underestimated card will be applied.
In the event of a value deemed grossly overestimated by the Customer, the Provider reserves the right to not certify the card and to return the card with the order, refunding only the card certification fee. This will be notified and insurance, if purchased, will be readjusted to the estimated honest value at CCC Grading's discretion. The customer will also be notified.
The Provider may also accept the order and proceed to honestly adjust the declared values. The client agrees that these adjusted values will be the only ones considered for future claims (e.g., for reimbursement under the insurance policy). If the client has paid an overcharge due to these overestimates, the client will not be reimbursed for the difference after the declared value has been readjusted.
ARTICLE 8 - NON-COMPLIANT CARDS / REJECTED CARDS
Category 1: Non-compliant but accepted for partial service
The following cards are accepted for authentication but will not be encased after expertise. They are considered as non-conforming for certification.
- Cards with ink in the form of inscriptions or drawings.
The following cards are accepted for authentication and will be encapsulated with a specific grade after expertise.
- Cards with ink in a location that is either hidden or show intent to hide a defect. = Automatically graded "A" and "Inked"
- Cards with ink not intended to mask a defect = Normally graded with "Inked"
The customer is allowed to submit to the Provider the cards listed in category 1. However, if the encapsulation service is not performed, the card will be returned to the customer as such with proof of non-compliance. The fee for the service will remain the same. No refund can be requested by the customer.
Category 2: Refused cards
The following cards cannot be authenticated and therefore may not be sent unless an exception has been made with the written consent of the Provider:
Cards not belonging to the sets or extensions available in the order form.
Off-format cards :
The 2 accepted formats are the "standard" cards measuring 6.3x8.8cm and the "jap" cards measuring 5.9x8.6cm.
- Marks of deterioration or degradation in an advanced stage
o High material deposition
o Addition of additional visible element (adhesive film or other)
Cards in this category will not be processed and will be returned to the customer with the order. The service fee paid for these cards will be reimbursed, but the return shipping costs will remain the responsibility of the customer.
ARTICLE 9 - DELIVERIES / TRANSPORT / COLLECTION AND DEPOSIT
The transport of the cards is divided into 2 stages:
1. When the client sends the goods to the Service Provider
a) If sent by postal service
b) If delivered by hand
2. Upon return to the customer by the Provider
a) In the case of a postal return
b) In the case of a pick-up by hand
1) Sending by the customer
a) Case of a postal shipment
The customer assumes full responsibility for the shipment to the Provider. The cost of such shipment shall be borne by the Customer and the Customer assumes the risk of loss in the shipment.

The authorized carriers for the routing of the parcel are: La Poste or other official national postal service that permit delivery to a CEDEX service (Professional mailbox).
The follow-up of the sending is obligatory but a delivery against signature with proof of deposit is the only means of delivery being worth proof in the event of litigation. A stamped letter from La Poste with a simple tracking is not sufficient in case of dispute because it does not exclude scanning errors or risks of theft in the mailbox after its deposit scan. The customer is required to keep his tracking number / registered number until the end of the order processing.
The customer must send his cards within 14 days in order to ensure receipt within 21 days. If no card is received within 21 days, a reminder from the Provider will be sent to the customer to check the status of the shipment and to make the necessary arrangements for the proper delivery of the package. If no card is received after 28 days, the Provider will have the option to cancel the order and refund the customer. In the event that the cards are received after the cancellation of the order, with proof of deposit against signature, the customer shall be responsible for requesting the return of the cards by sending an email to email@example.com. The Provider will return the cards upon receipt of the necessary return shipping charges.
b) Case of a personal deposit

Deliveries are made to the address indicated by the customer when ordering on the website. A tracking number from the carrier will be communicated to the customer.
Deliveries are made by an independent carrier, to the address given by the customer when ordering and to which the carrier will have easy access.
In the event of a refused delivery or if the address is incorrect, the customer should send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to resolve the problem.

In the event that the Customer has not purchased insurance and the Card is damaged or lost, the Service Provider may, but shall not be obligated to, offer an interim solution to remedy the situation. The Customer understands that by sending a card without insurance, the Customer shall not hold the Provider liable for any damage or loss and therefore waives any action or claim of any kind against the Provider if the claim is for an uninsured item.

ARTICLE 15 - IMPOSSIBILITY OF RETURN
Due to the nature of the custom processing related to the certification service and in accordance with the provisions of Article 221-28 3° of the French Consumer Code, the right of return does not apply to custom products, thus depriving the Customer of the possibility to return the products offered by the Provider.

- To present the qualities that a purchaser can legitimately expect taking into account the public declarations made by the salesman, by the producer or by his representative, in particular in publicity or labelling;
Or have the characteristics defined by mutual agreement between the parties or be suitable for any special use sought by the buyer, brought to the attention of the seller and accepted by the latter.
Article L217-6 of the Consumer Code
The seller is not bound by the public statements of the producer or his representative if it is established that he did not know them and could not legitimately have known them.
Article L217-7 of the Consumer Code
Defects of conformity that appear within twenty-four months from the delivery of the goods are presumed to have existed at the time of delivery, unless proven otherwise.
For goods sold second-hand, this period is set at six months.
The seller can fight this presumption if it is not compatible with the nature of the good or the claimed lack of conformity.
Article L217-8 of the Consumer Code
The buyer is entitled to demand that the goods conform to the contract. However, he may not contest conformity by invoking a defect that he knew or could not have been unaware of when he contracted. The same applies when the defect originates in materials that he himself supplied.
Article L217-9 of the Consumer Code
In case of lack of conformity, the buyer chooses between repairing or replacing the goods.
However, the seller may not proceed according to the buyer's choice if this choice entails a cost that is clearly disproportionate to the other method, given the value of the goods or the importance of the defect. The seller is then obliged to proceed, unless this is impossible, according to the method not chosen by the buyer.
Article L217-10 of the Consumer Code
If the repair and replacement of the good are impossible, the buyer may return the good and have the price returned or keep the good and have part of the price returned.
The same option is open to him:
- If the solution requested, proposed or agreed upon in application of article L. 217-9 cannot be implemented within one month following the buyer's complaint;
- Or if this solution cannot be implemented without major inconvenience for the buyer, given the nature of the goods and the use he is seeking.
However, the sale cannot be cancelled if the lack of conformity is minor.
Article L217-11 of the Consumer Code
The application of the provisions of Articles L. 217-9 and L. 217-10 shall take place at no cost to the buyer. These same provisions do not prevent the awarding of damages.
Article L217-12 of the Consumer Code
The action resulting from the defect of conformity is prescribed by two years as from the delivery of the good.
Article L217-13 of the Consumer Code
The provisions of this section do not deprive the purchaser of the right to exercise the action resulting from redhibitory defects such as it results from articles 1641 to 1649 of the civil code or any other action of contractual or extra-contractual nature which is recognized by the law.
Article L217-14 of the Consumer Code
The recourse action may be brought by the final seller against successive sellers or intermediaries and the producer of the tangible property, in accordance with the principles of the Civil Code.
Article L217-16 of the Consumer Code
When the buyer asks the seller, during the course of the commercial warranty granted to him at the time of the acquisition or repair of a movable good, for a repair covered by the warranty, any period of immobilization of at least seven days shall be added to the duration of the warranty that remained to run. This period shall run from the date of the buyer's request for intervention or from the time the item in question is made available for repair, if this is after the request for intervention.
Article 1641 of the Civil Code
The Service Provider is liable for hidden defects in the goods sold which render them unfit for the purpose for which they were intended, or which so impair that purpose that the purchaser would not have acquired them or would have paid a lower price for them had he known of them.
Article 1648 paragraph 1 of the Civil Code
The action resulting from redhibitory defects must be brought by the purchaser within two years of the discovery of the defect.
