Legal guarantees applicable to French consumers
I. Appendix to Article D. 211-3 of the French Consumer Code
"The consumer has a period of two years from the supply of the digital content or digital service to obtain the implementation of the legal guarantee of compliance in the event of the appearance of a lack of compliance. During a period of one year from the date of supply, the consumer is only required to establish the existence of the lack of compliance and not the date of its appearance."
"The legal guarantee of compliance entails the obligation to provide all the updates necessary to maintain the compliance of the digital content or digital service."
"The legal guarantee of compliance gives the consumer the right to bring the digital content or digital service into compliance without undue delay following the consumer's request, at no cost or major inconvenience to them."
"The consumer may obtain a price reduction by retaining the digital content or the digital service or they may terminate the contract by being refunded in full against renunciation of the digital content or the digital service, if:
1. The trader refuses to bring the digital content or digital service into compliance;
2. Bringing the digital content or digital service into compliance is unjustifiably delayed;
3. Bringing the digital content or digital service into compliance may not take place without costs imposed on the consumer;
4. Bringing the digital content or digital service into compliance causes a major disadvantage for the consumer;
5. The non-compliance of the digital content or digital service persists, despite the trader's attempt to bring them into compliance which has remained unsuccessful.
"The consumer is also entitled to a price reduction or to the termination of the contract when the lack of compliance is so serious that it justifies that the price reduction or the termination of the contract is immediate. The consumer is then not required to request the bringing into compliance of the digital content or digital service beforehand."
"In cases where the lack of compliance is minor, the consumer is only entitled to the cancellation of the contract if the contract does not provide for the payment of a price."
"Any period of unavailability of the digital content or digital service with a view to bringing it back into compliance suspends the guarantee that remained to run until the supply of the digital content or digital service is once again compliant."
"The rights mentioned above result from the application of Articles L. 224-25-1 to L. 224-25-31 of the French Consumer Code."
"Any trader who obstructs in bad faith the implementation of the legal guarantee of compliance is liable to a civil fine of a maximum amount of 300,000 euros, which may be increased to 10% of the average annual turnover (Article L. 242-18-1 of the French Consumer Code).
"The consumer also benefits from the legal guarantee of hidden defects pursuant to Articles 1641 to 1649 of the French Civil Code, for a period of two years from the discovery of the defect. This guarantee gives the right to a price reduction if the digital content or the digital service is retained, or to a full refund against renunciation of the digital content or the digital service.”
II. Appendix legal guarantee against hidden defects
Pursuant to Articles 1641 to 1649 of the French Civil Code, consumers and non-specialist professional customers also benefit from the guarantee against hidden defects that occurs when the property is unfit for the use for which it is intended, or that reduces this use so much that you would not have acquired it or would have given only a lower price, if you had known thereof. A defect is said to be hidden when you do not detect it during a simple examination. You have 2 years from its discovery to make a claim in line with the guarantee. In any case, you must provide proof of the hidden defect (i.e. an expert report). This guarantee gives you the right to a price reduction if the Digital Service is retained, or to a full refund in exchange for the waiver of the Digital Service.
III. Legal provisions - Legal guarantees of compliance applicable to the one-off supply of digital content or a digital service or to a series of separate supply operations:
Art. L. 224-25-12 of the French Consumer Code:
"The trader provides digital content or a digital service in accordance with the contract as well as the criteria set out in Article L. 224-25-14.
Where the contract provides for a one-off supply of the digital content or digital service, or a series of separate supply operations, the trader shall be liable for any lack of compliance existing at the time of supply and which appears within two years of the supply.
Where the contract provides for the digital content or digital service to be supplied on a continuous basis, the trader shall be liable for any lack of compliance that appears during the period during which the digital content or digital service is supplied under the contract.
The applicable period does not deprive the consumer of their right to updates in accordance with the provisions of Article L. 224-25-25.
The trader shall also be liable, within the same time limits, for any lack of compliance resulting from the incorrect integration of the digital content or digital service into the digital environment of the consumer where this has been carried out by the trader or under their responsibility, or where the incorrect integration carried out by the consumer results from shortcomings in the instructions provided by the trader.
This guarantee period applies without prejudice to Articles 2224 et seq. of the French Civil Code. The starting point for the prescription of the consumer's action is the day of the consumer's knowledge of the lack of compliance.”
Art. L. 224-25-13 of the French Consumer Code:
"The digital content or digital service complies with the contract if it meets, in particular, the following criteria:
1. It corresponds to the description, type, quantity and quality, in particular with regard to functionality, compatibility, interoperability, or any other characteristic provided for in the contract;
2. It is suitable for any special use sought by the consumer, brought to the attention of the trader at the latest at the time of the conclusion of the contract and which the latter has accepted;
3. It is provided with all accessories, including packaging, installation instructions, as well as customer assistance, to be provided in accordance with the contract;
4. It is updated in accordance with the contract.”
Art. L. 224-25-14 of the French Consumer Code:
"I.-In addition to the compliance criteria set out in the contract, the digital content or digital service complies if it meets the following criteria:
1. It is suitable for the usual expected use of digital content or a digital service of the same type, taking into account, where appropriate, any provisions of European Union law and national law as well as all technical standards, or in the absence of such technical standards, the specific codes of conduct applicable to the sector concerned;
2. Where applicable, it has the qualities that the trader has presented to the consumer in the form of a trial version or an overview, before the conclusion of the contract;
3. It is provided in the most recent version available at the time of the conclusion of the contract, unless the parties agree otherwise;
4. In the case of continuous supply of digital content or a digital service during a given period, it is provided without interruption throughout this period;
5. If necessary, it is provided with all accessories and installation instructions as well as customer assistance, which the consumer can legitimately expect;
6. If applicable, it is provided with the updates that the consumer can legitimately expect, in accordance with the provisions of Article L. 224-25-25;
7. It corresponds to the quantity, quality and other characteristics, including in terms of functionality, compatibility, accessibility, continuity and security, that the consumer can legitimately expect for digital content or digital services of the same type, having regard to the nature of these contents or services, as well as public statements made by the trader, by any person upstream in the chain of transactions, or by a person acting on their behalf, including in advertising or on labelling.
II.-However, the trader is not bound by any public statements mentioned in the last paragraph of I if they demonstrate:
1. That they did not know of them and were not legitimately able to know of them;
2. That at the time of the conclusion of the contract, the public statements had been corrected under conditions comparable to the initial statements; or
3. That public statements could not have had an influence on the decision to contract.
III.-The consumer may not contest the compliance by invoking a defect concerning one or more particular characteristics of the digital content or digital service, of which they have been specifically informed that they deviate from the compliance criteria set out in this article, a deviation to which they have expressly and separately consented at the time of the conclusion of the contract.”
Art. L. 224-25-15 of the French Consumer Code:
"When at the time of the contract, a processing of personal data is carried out by the trader, a failure on their part to comply with the obligations incumbent on them under Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of 27 April 2016 and Law No. 78-17 of 6 January 1978 on data processing, files and freedoms, when this failure results in the non-compliance of one or more compliance criteria set out in this section, is assimilated to a lack of compliance, without prejudice to the other remedies provided for by these texts.”
Art. L. 224-25-16 of the French Consumer Code:
"I.-Defects of compliance that appear within a period of twelve months from the supply of the digital content or digital service are presumed to exist at the time of such supply, unless proven otherwise.
Where the contract provides for the continuous supply of the digital content or digital service during a given period, the burden of proof as to whether the digital content or digital service was compliant during the contractual period of supply shall be on the trader in the event of a lack of compliance appearing during that period.
II.-The trader is not responsible for the lack of compliance if they demonstrate that it is directly attributable to the incompatibility between the digital content or the digital service and the digital environment of the consumer, and that the consumer had been informed by the trader of the technical requirements of compatibility of this content or service before the conclusion of the contract.
The consumer is required to cooperate with the trader, to the extent that is reasonably possible, necessary and least intrusive for them, to determine whether the lack of compliance is caused by this incompatibility. Otherwise, the burden of proof referred to in the first or second paragraph of I of this article is on the consumer, on the condition that the consumer has been informed in a clear and understandable way of their obligation to cooperate before the conclusion of the contract.”
Art. L. 224-25-17 of the French Consumer Code:
"In the event of lack of compliance, the consumer has the right to bring the digital content or digital service into compliance or, failing that, to reduce the price or to terminate the contract, under the conditions set out in this paragraph.
The consumer has, moreover, the right to suspend the payment of all or part of the price or the delivery of the benefit provided for in the contract until the trader has met the obligations incumbent on them under this subsection, under the conditions of Articles 1219 and 1220 of the French Civil Code.
The provisions of this subsection are without prejudice to the award of damages.”
Art. L. 224-25-18 of the French Consumer Code:
"In the event of lack of compliance, the consumer is entitled to require the digital content or digital service to comply with the criteria set out in paragraph 1 of this subsection.
The compliance shall take place at no cost to the consumer, without undue delay following the consumer's request and without major inconvenience to the consumer, taking into account the nature of the digital content or digital service concerned and the use sought by the consumer.
The consumer is not required to pay for the use they have made of the digital content or digital service during the period, prior to the termination of the contract, during which this content or service was not compliant.”
Art. L. 224-25-19 of the French Consumer Code:
"The trader may refuse compliance if it proves impossible or entails disproportionate costs, in particular in view of the importance of the lack of compliance and the value of the digital content or digital service in the absence of a defect.
If these conditions are not met, the consumer may, after formal notice, continue the forced execution in kind of the compliance requested in accordance with Articles 1221 et seq. of the French Civil Code.
Any refusal by the trader to bring the digital content or digital service into compliance shall be justified in writing or on a durable medium.”
Art. L. 224-25-20 of the French Consumer Code:
"The consumer has the right to a price reduction or to the termination of the contract in the following cases:
1. When the trader refuses to bring the digital content or digital service into compliance;
2. When the bringing into compliance of the digital content or digital service is unjustifiably delayed, or if it causes costs or a major inconvenience for the consumer;
3. The non-compliance of the digital content or digital service persists despite the attempt to bring the trader into compliance remaining unsuccessful.
The consumer is also entitled to a price reduction or to the termination of the contract when the lack of compliance is so serious that it justifies that the price reduction or the termination of the contract is immediate. The consumer is then not required to request the bringing into compliance of the digital content or digital service beforehand.
However, the termination of the contract cannot be pronounced if the lack of compliance is minor, which it is the responsibility of the trader to demonstrate. This paragraph does not apply to contracts in which the consumer does not pay a price.”
IV. Legal provisions - Legal guarantee against hidden defects
Article 1641 of the French Civil Code:
"The seller must guarantee against hidden defects in the thing sold which render it unfit for the use for which it was intended, or that reduce this use to the point that the buyer would not have acquired it, or would have paid a lower price, if they had known about their existence.”
Article 1648 paragraph 1 of the French Civil Code
"Any action resulting from latent defects must be brought by the buyer within two years from discovery of the defect.”
