General Sales Conditions

  1. 1.      Object

The general present conditions rule the sales of the products shown on the site www.art-afrique-dogon, hereinafter called “the site”.

As these general conditions of sales can be subject to modifications, the applicable conditions are those enforced on the site when the order is placed.

The only fact of placing an order is worth acceptance without any reserve by the buyer of the integrality of the present conditions of sales. The buyer acknowledges to be fully informed about the fact that his consent regarding the content of the present general conditions of sales does not require any handwritten or electronic signature of this document

  1. 2.      Order

The main characteristics of each single product are described in a presentation sheet, containing one or more photographs and indicating its features. The photographs illustrating the text of the products do not enter the legal field. The presentation sheet of the product is the only legal source.

The automatic registration systems are considered as proof of the nature, content and date of the order. We confirm the customer the acceptance of his order to the email address by himself communicated. The sale shall be considered as concluded only from the date of this order confirmation. We reserve ourselves the right to refuse any order from a customer with whom a dispute linked to a previous order exists.

The runner of the Site is a self-enterprise not submitted to VAT.   

In case of an order placed with a different country than metropolitan France, the buyer is the importer of the products bought. Customs duties or other duties and taxes may be due in the consignee country. Those are entirely on the buyer’s expenses and depend on its only responsibility. The Site is not obliged to keep the buyer informed of the existence and amount of customs duties or any other possible applicable taxes.  It belongs to the buyer to inform himself beforehand to the competent authorities of the said country.

In any case, the buyer has at his disposal a distribution follow-up by a link with a number corresponding to the shipping which is communicated by e-mail at the time of the shipping of the order.

The shipping expenses and the treatment of the order are calculated on the rightest price from an average flat rate basis. The Site reserves itself the right to contact the buyer in order to readjust those expenses in case the volume and/or weight of the order would no longer match the systematically proposed flat rate basis.

The Site bears the risks linked to shipping up to delivery, that is to say up to the physical delivery of the product to the consignee stated at the time of the order or to his representative. This latter must check the goods on delivery in presence of the shipping agent and, if the occasion should arise, mention in written on the shipping documents, the observed reserves. By exception, the risks and hazards of shipping (particularly loss, damage or theft) are on the customer’s expenses if this one is a professional.

The consignee must refuse the delivery if the goods are damaged, missing or if the parcel has been opened or repackaged (except customs’ checking). In case of loss or damage, the consignee must state precise and detailed written reserves on the forwarding agent’s delivery documents (Reserves like “under reserve of checking upon unwrapping” have no legal value.) The buyer must then send the forwarding agent a registered letter mentioning again the reserves within the three days following delivery. In order to get assistance in his steps, the buyer is invited to contact the Site through the “contact” page. The good accepted without reserves by the consignee at the time of delivery and/or failing letter addressed to the forwarding agent within three days, is considered to having been delivered in good state and in its entirety (number of items, identification in accordance with the order, etc.). No claim will be taken in charge by the Site and its responsibility shall not be committed.  Regarding any query or difficulty the buyer may face, he is invited to contact us through the “contact” page of the Site.

Every product has to be returned in its state and original packaging in a period of 14 days following the withdrawal.

Any dispute linked to the make-up, fulfillment and termination of the contractual commitments between the parties that cannot be settled amicably shall be submitted to the French courts. The fact for the Site not to take advantage at one point or another of one of the clauses of the present general conditions of sales, cannot deserve denunciation to take advantage of these very same clauses later on.

All the products exhibited on this site have been found by ourselves, right on the spot in Mali or in Burkina Faso. They are unique works that we have chosen for their beauty, originality, authenticity.

For ten years now, we have been staying in these countries, especially in the dogon region, several times a year. We have gradually come to know craftsmen, artists, antique dealers whom we have been working reliably with and several of them have become dear friends. Consequently we can certify the quality of the jewels, statues, copper statuettes and items, wooden items (African masks, etc) that we propose. In case the product bought would not correspond to the idea you had of it when you did place the order, you can return it to us within fifteen days from the date of reception. We shall refund the purchase price without you having to justify your decision.

Do not hesitate to contact us if you wish further information or see some products. You can also call us if you want us to look for you about a special product you have not found on our site, during our next stay in Africa.  

If you are a professional, we propose special commercial terms. For Europe, we do represent, among others, the Ouagadougou bronze sculptor whose works you can admire on this site (see our page “professionals”)
