VI. Complaints For all Orders placed on this website, the Customer has the right to file a complaint. We invite the Customer to check the apparent condition of the Products upon delivery and to report any damage to the carrier.

To exercise this right to file a complaint, the Customer must send a statement to the Company expressing their reservations and complaints, accompanied by supporting evidence (signed receipt slip by the carrier, photographs, etc.). The Customer can send their complaint via email to or by postal mail to the following address: Customer Service, 107 rue Lagrange, 33000 Bordeaux.

The Company will repair, replace, or refund, at its expense and as soon as possible, the delivered Products for which the non-conformity defects or apparent or hidden defects have been duly proven by the Customer, in accordance with the provisions of Articles L. 217-4 and following of the French Consumer Code and those provided for in these GTC/CGU, subject to the material possibility of repairing the Product or its availability in stock.

VII. Consumer Right of Withdrawal

In accordance with current legal provisions, the Customer has a period of fourteen (14) days from the receipt of the Product to exercise their right of withdrawal with the Seller, MIMI TIKA, without having to justify reasons or pay any penalties, for the purpose of exchange or refund, provided that the Products are returned in their original packaging and in perfect condition within fourteen (14) days from the day of effective receipt of the order. The Company undertakes to refund the entire Order (including shipping costs, if applicable) and offers free return shipping.

Damaged, soiled, or incomplete Products will not be accepted for return.

The Consumer has a right of withdrawal for fourteen (14) days from the placement of the Order, except for contracts mentioned in Article L.221-28 of the French Consumer Code. They then have 14 days following the communication of their decision to withdraw to return the product.

To exercise this right of withdrawal, the Consumer has up to fourteen (14) days after receiving their Order to send a withdrawal declaration to the email address:, indicating in the subject line: "Request for Withdrawal - Order #YourOrderNumber".

The products must be returned to the following address: MIMI TIKA, Customer Service, 107 rue Lagrange, 33000 Bordeaux, France

If the products are not returned within the fourteen (14) day period, the Order is deemed final, and no refund can be made, except in cases provided for in these Terms and Conditions.

The Customer will be refunded the full amount paid for placing the Order within fourteen (14) days following the receipt of the returned Product(s).

The refund will be made using the same payment method used for the purchase.

The burden of proof for exercising the right of withdrawal lies with the Customer. The Customer's liability is only incurred with regard to any depreciation of the goods resulting from handling other than what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics, and proper functioning of the goods.

VIII. Transfer of Risks and Ownership

The Company retains ownership of the Products sold until full payment of the price by the Customer, regardless of the date of delivery of said Products. The Company may therefore repossess the Products in the event of non-payment. In this case, the down payments made will remain with the Company as compensation.

For Professional Customers, the transfer of risks to the Customer occurs upon delivery of the goods to the carrier by the Company. For Consumer Customers, the transfer of risks occurs when the Customer physically takes possession of the Products, i.e., upon delivery.

IX. Legal Guarantees

The Products sold on the Site comply with the current regulations in France and have performances compatible with non-professional use. In accordance with Article L. 217-4 of the French Consumer Code, MIMI TIKA is obligated to deliver a good that conforms to the contract and is liable for any lack of conformity existing at the time of delivery. It is also liable for any lack of conformity resulting from packaging, assembly instructions, or installation when it was responsible for these under the contract or when they were carried out under its responsibility. In accordance with Article L. 217-5 of the French Consumer Code, to be in conformity with the contract, the Product must (i) be suitable for the customary use of a similar good and, if applicable, correspond to the description given by the seller and possess the qualities that the seller has presented to the buyer in the form of a sample or model and present the qualities that a buyer can legitimately expect in view of the public statements made by MIMI TIKA, particularly in advertising or labeling, or (ii) have the characteristics defined by mutual agreement between the parties or be suitable for any special use sought by the Customer, brought to the knowledge of MIMI TIKA, and accepted by the latter.

The Products provided by MIMI TIKA benefit automatically and at no additional cost, independent of the right of withdrawal, from (i) the legal warranty of conformity for apparently defective, damaged, or non-compliant Products, and (ii) the legal warranty against hidden defects arising from a defect in material, design, or manufacture that renders the delivered Products unfit for use, under the conditions and according to the procedures set out in the enclosed document and defined in the annex to these Terms and Conditions.

It should be noted that, within the framework of the legal warranty of conformity, the Customer:

  • has a period of two (2) years from the delivery of the Product to take action against MIMI TIKA;
  • may choose between repair or replacement of the ordered Product, subject to the cost conditions provided for in Article L. 217-9 of the French Consumer Code;
  • is exempt from providing proof of the existence of the lack of conformity of the Product for six (6) months following the delivery of the Product. This period is extended to twenty-four (24) months from March 18, 2016, except for used goods.

The legal warranty of conformity applies regardless of any commercial warranty that may cover the Product. The Customer may decide to enforce the warranty against hidden defects of the Product in accordance with Article 1641 of the French Civil Code; in this case, they can choose between canceling the sale or a reduction in the sale price in accordance with Article 1644 of the French Civil Code.

In order to assert their rights, the Customer must inform MIMI TIKA in writing of the non-conformity of the Products within a maximum period of two (2) years from the delivery of the Products, or the existence of hidden defects within the aforementioned time limits, and return or bring the defective Products to the store in the condition in which they were received, with all elements (accessories, packaging, instructions, etc.).

MIMI TIKA will refund, replace, or repair the Products or parts under warranty that are deemed non-compliant or defective. Shipping costs will be refunded based on the invoiced rate, and return costs will be refunded upon presentation of supporting documents, up to the invoiced rate indicated on the invoice of the Order.

Refunds for Products deemed non-compliant or defective will be made as soon as possible and no later than fourteen (14) days following the discovery by MIMI TIKA of the lack of conformity or hidden defect. The refund will be made by crediting the Customer's bank account or PayPal account.

MIMI TIKA's liability cannot be incurred in the event of non-compliance with the legislation of the country in which the Products are delivered, which it is the Customer's responsibility to verify, or in the event of misuse, negligence, lack of maintenance on the part of the Customer, as well as in the event of normal wear and tear of the Product, an accident, or force majeure.

MIMI TIKA's warranty is, in any case, limited to the replacement or refund of non-compliant or defective Products.

The replacement of Products does not extend the warranty period.
