The parcel will be delivered to the address provided by the customer during the order process. At the time of delivery, if the customer is absent the delivery driver will leave a delivery notice which will be directly dropped in their letterbox.
Alloremotecontrol agrees to prepare and deliver the product(s) ordered by the customer within the maximum time period of 30 days starting from when the customer receives their order confirmation.
The delivery times visible by the customer at the time of placing an order are calculated in working days. Orders which are confirmed and paid for before 2pm for items shown as being in stock will be processed and dispatched within 1 to 3 working days.
6.2 – Delivery times : Following the order confirmation, the parcel is prepared and enters the postal system. The parcel is dispatched to the address provided by the customer and its delivery will depend on the method of delivery chosen, on which the delivery time will be based.
The different delivery methods available are as follows:
LETTRES SUIVIES FRANCE : average indicative timeframe advertised by the service provider : 3-5 working days for metropolitan France.
COLISSIMO : average timeframe advertised by the service provider: 2-3 working days for metropolitan France.
CHRONOPOST : average timeframe advertised by the service provider: 1-2 working days for metropolitan France.
LETTRES SUIVIES EUROPE : average timeframe advertised by the service provider: 3-6 working days for deliveries in Europe
6.3 Delivery delays and losses : In the event of a parcel being delayed or lost and this is attributable to a third party service provider such as DHL, La Poste, UPS, ChronoPost, Alloremotecontrol cannot be held responsible. A time period of 30 days starting from the date of submission of the complaint with the company concerned will be necessary before any decision is made (on refunds, re-sending of new products or cancellation of the order). If the customer wishes to receive other products in the meantime, payment for the cost of a new order will have to be made in full. This cost will be refunded in full on the day the lost parcel is returned to the Alloremotecontrol head office.
As deliveries are carried out by a third party service provider, in the event of delays Alloremotecontrol is not able to make a firm commitment on delivery timeframes. When a delivery delay is identified, the customer can declare this to Alloremotecontrol, who agree to contact the service provider in order to check the order’s status.
Under no circumstances can a delay to the delivery of a parcel form part of any compensation on behalf of Alloremotecontrol.
The company LETTRE SUIVIE FRANCE and INTERNATIONAL does not include any insurance with parcels and refunds in the event of losses or delays cannot be guaranteed.
The company CHRONOPOST is a fast delivery service which lays down strict rules. In the event of a parcel being delayed, the customer must be reactive and inform Alloremotecontrol from the first day that the delivery is 24H late in order to leave us time to compile a complaint file and submit it to CHRONOPOST. Beyond this time, CHRONOPOST will not accept any type of complaint and Alloremotecontrol cannot be held responsible for the lateness or loss of parcels.
Following a customer’s complaint, below you will find the kinds of action generally undertaken by Alloremotecontrol once a response has been received from the service provider:
‘Parcel lost’ – the customer is sent a new parcel with costs covered by Alloremotecontrol (except with the Lettre Suivie company).
‘Parcel delivered’ – costs are not covered by Alloremotecontrol.
‘Parcel is currently being re-routed’, ‘Parcel is being sent back to the sender’ – Alloremotecontrol will await the return of the parcel to analyse the reasons why the parcel was not delivered and determine the course of action.
ARTICLE 7 – CANCELLATIONS, WITHDRAWALS AND REFUNDS
The buyer has the option to cancel the order once it has been finalised.
Furthermore, once the product has been received by the buyer, they will have a cancellation period of 14 days allowing them to send the delivered product back without having to state specific reasons after paying the 9 euro delivery costs.
If the buyer makes use of this right of withdrawal within the time period of 14 clear days starting from when the product was received, the seller agrees to refund the buyer without delay and no later than 30 days following the date on which this right was exercised (exclusive of the 9 euro delivery and case management costs).
The postage sending and return fees (6 to 9 euros depending on the item purchased) will be at the buyer’s cost.
In order to exercise these order withdrawal and cancellation rights the buyer must send an email to the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org. This email will have to explicitly mention the order reference.
A confirmation acknowledging receipt of this return request will then be sent to them by email.
