Only Clients having the status of consumer, that is to say any natural person acting for purposes which are outside the scope of its commercial, industrial, artisanal, liberal or agricultural activity, can benefit from the legal guarantee of conformity provided for in the French Consumer Code. Products purchased from Ledger are covered by the seller's legal warranty against non-conformity in accordance with articles L.217-4 et seq. of the French Consumer Code and the legal warranty of the seller against hidden defects in accordance with articles 1641 et seq. of the French Civil Code.
Concerning the legal guarantee of conformity, the consumer must act within a period of two years from the delivery of the Product. He may choose between repairing or replacing the Product subject to the cost conditions provided for in article L.217-9 of the French Consumer Code. He is exempted from proving the non-conformity of the Product at the time of delivery within the twenty-four (24) months that follows the delivery of the Product, except for second-hand Products, in which case the time limit is six (6) months. This guarantee applies regardless of any other commercial warranty.

A good is considered to be non-compliant either when it is not appropriate for the use normally expected of a similar good and does not correspond to the description given by the seller and does not possess the qualities the latter has presented to the purchaser from a sample or a model or does not have the qualities which a consumer can legitimately expect in view of the public declarations made by the seller, the manufacturer or his representative, through advertising or labelling, or where it does not have the characteristics defined by mutual agreement by the parties or is not specific to the special use sought by the consumer and brought to the attention of the seller, and accepted by the latter. The guarantee of conformity is excluded if the consumer became aware of the defect at the time of contracting or when he could not ignore this defect at the time of contracting or when Ledger proves that the lack of conformity did not exist at the time of delivery of the product.
A hidden defect means a non-apparent defect of the Product, making it unsuitable for its intended use or which so diminishes that use that the Customer would not have acquired it or would have given it a lower price, if he had known it. The action resulting from hidden defects must be brought within two years after the discovery of defect.
