• May choose between repairing the goods or replacing them subject to the conditions of cost laid out in Article L. 217-9 of the French Consumer Code
• Will not be required to prove the existence of the defect in the first six months following the delivery of the goods
The guarantee of conformity will apply independently of the commercial guarantee that is given.
