After verification of the Review authenticity by LAST, the Review may be published on the Website and visible to all Users on the page of the Product concerned until the said Product is de-listed.
Any Customer undertakes to write a Review on a Product that they have actually used and which testifies to their personal experience relating to the use of said Product. As such, Opinions cannot replace or be considered as medical advice.
No Customer receives any consideration, financial or otherwise, in exchange for filing a Review.

- indecent, abusive, obscene, racist or defamatory remarks,
- comments undermining respect for the human person or their dignity, equality between women and men or the protection of children and teenagers,
- statements encouraging crimes and misdemeanors,

- and, more generally, of content establishing an abuse in the exercise of freedom of expression, in particular consisting of a systematic and non-objective criticism of the Products and LAST.

Any Customer submitting a Review on the Website guarantees to LAST that he holds all the rights relating to his Review and expressly authorizes LAST to use his Review in the context of its marketing and / or in its advertising.
ARTICLE 4. PRICE
Product prices are quoted in Euro, inclusive of all taxes (including VAT), but do not include shipping costs, which will be indicated on the Order overview before the Customer’s final approval. Shipping costs vary according to the shipping method selected by the Customer.
The price billed to the Customer is the total price specified in the Order overview at the "Confirm Order" stage, prior to the Customer’s confirmation of the Order, and in the Order confirmation e-mail. It includes shipping costs.
LAST retains the right to change the price of the Products at any time, it being specified that these changes will have no effect on Orders that have already been confirmed by the Customer prior to the said changes, and provided that the Products ordered are available.
Special offers are valid within the limits of available stocks during the period indicated in the offer and, if not, as long as they are displayed on the Website.
LAST is and remains the owner of any Product ordered by the Customer until the Customer has paid the total price of the Order, including shipping costs.
The Customer shall return to LAST without delay any delivered Product for which it would not have entirely or partially paid the price.
ARTICLE 5. PURCHASE
LAST sells retail Products to end consumers. Therefore, the Customer is aware that Products must be intended for personal use and under no circumstances for commercial purposes (resale, distribution...), so that no more than five (5) Products of the same reference may be ordered on the Website and/or that an order of over five hundred (500) euros all taxes included may not be placed. Similarly, the Customer may not place more than three (3) orders per day. Any Order that does not comply with one or all of these conditions shall be considered a fraudulent Order and, consequently, LAST may consider it as null and void.
Any User can freely browse the Website without any obligation to buy. The User who would like to place an Order must select the desired Product(s) and add them to their virtual shopping cart. To place an Order, the Customer must be of legal age, have legal capacity and own a credit card. Under no circumstances can LAST be held responsible for checking the legal capacity of the Customer. Consequently, should a person with no legal capacity order Products on the Website, their legal guardians shall be held fully responsible for the Order and shall be required to pay for it.
Orders can be placed either via a personal account that was created or to be created on the Website, or in guest mode.
A personal account can be created by clicking on "account" and then "Create an account" anytime during your visit on the Website. Certain information is required to place an Order, while other information is optional and is only used to get to know you better. The personal account, accessible through the Custome eamil address and his chosen password chosen, enables the Customer to track their Order history, and manage the billing and delivery addresses. The Customer shall not disclose their password to any third party and shall remain solely responsible for the use of their personal account.
Placing an Order in guest mode, meaning without creating a personal account, implies filling out a form with the Customer email address, the first name and last nameincluding also necessary information for the payment of the Order and its shipping.
LAST shall not be held liable for any mistake made by the Customer in the information provided that may prevent the Order from being finalized or shipped.
The Customer can check the content and amount of his basket at any time and, if needed, make changes by clicking on the "Previous Step" icon to correct any mistakes made during the Product selection process. Once the Customer has completed the payment for the Order by clicking on the "Pay [amount of the order]" icon, the Customer may no longer cancel or change the Order, except when performing their right of withdrawal.
An Order is confirmed when the Customer pays its total price and then receives a confirmation e-mail including an overview of the Products ordered, the total price, the shipping costs and the order number. The Customer understands that placing an Order obliges them to pay for it and that LAST is entitled to charge the full price of the Purchase Order from the moment the Order is confirmed.
The invoice for the Order is accessible on the Website in the Customer account section or the Customer can get it on written request to customer service by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Unless the Customer performs their right of withdrawal as defined in article 8, the Order concluded between LAST and the Customer is irrevocable. However, LAST has the right to refuse, suspend or cancel an Order, regardless of its nature, its amount or its degree of completion, in case of:
- full or partial non-payment of the Order or of a previous Order;
- payment incident or payment denial from banking organizations;
- fraudulent or presumed fraudulent orders;
- an existing dispute with the Customer.:
If an Order is refused, suspended or canceled for any of the above reasons, LAST will promptly inform the Customer, stating why the Order was refused.
LAST advises the Customer to keep a printed and/or electronic copy of the Order overview as well as all e-mails related to the Order. The Parties agree that all e-mail exchanges between them about the Order, as well as the automatic filing system used by the Website, shall be considered as evidence regarding the exactitude of their legally binding relation.
ARTICLE 6. PAYMENT
All Orders placed on the Website can be paid in Euro. Exchange rate fees or banking fees might apply to the Customer, namely if a card with a currency other than Euro is used.
The payment of the Order by the Customer is done directly onto the Website by certain cards such as Visa and MasterCard or via Paypal, as well as with e-gift cards.
For credit card payments, the Customer will insert their card number, expiry date, name of the holder and visual cryptogram.
For Paypal payments, the Customer will be redirected towards the Paypal page to log in and confirm the payment, and will then be redirected towards the Website to confirm their Order.
In any case, the Customer declares and guarantees to LAST that they are using a payment method for which they have all necessary authorizations at the time the Order is confirmed.
The Customer’s account is charged the moment the Order is confirmed.
All transactions on the Website are secured by Internet payments security protocol, 3D Secure and by a secure payment operator, Ogone. All information exchanged for the payment is encrypted with the SSL protocol (Secure Socket Layer). Payment security is also ensured by FPS Web.
In any case, LAST shall not be held liable for fraudulent use of any payment method undetected during the payment process.
As part of the fight against Internet fraud, information regarding the Customer’s Order may be transmitted to a judiciary or legally authorized authority to check the Customer’s identity, the payment method used or the planned delivery location.
ARTICLE 7. SHIPPING AND PICKUP
a. Shipping terms
The Products ordered by the Customer are shipped to the address indicated by the Customer as their delivery address or the pickup point selected by the Customer when placing the Order.
LAST ships to mainland France and Corsica. For any shipping outside of these territories, the Customer shall plan, on their own, transportation between LAST warehouses and their delivery address and pay the resulting costs. To do so, they will need to contact customer service via e-mail at email@example.com.
