These general conditions of sale (CGV) frame the contractual relations between the professional and the consumer. This act constitutes a contract which takes the place of law for the parties: the professional who writes it and the consumer who accepts it.
Article 1 – Content and scope
These general conditions of sale automatically apply to the following services: distance selling on the general catalog of internet dating services.
“Distance selling on general catalog” corresponds to the activity of the subclass coded 47.91A in the French classification of activities (NAF) established by the National Institute of Statistics and Economic Studies (INSEE). This subclass comprises “retail sale of all types of goods over the Internet”. Among the associated products, there is the “clothing retail trade” which belongs to the coded sub-category 47.00.71 of the French product classification (CPF). This subcategory includes “retail sale of outerwear or undergarment” and also includes “retail sale of other clothing accessories”. Among the associated products, there is also the “retail trade in books” which is the title of the subcategory coded 47.00.61 in the NAF.
“Dating services” are included in the coded sub-category 96.09.19 entitled “Other miscellaneous services n.e.c.” of the French product classification (CPF). This subcategory is attached to coded subclass 96.09Z entitled “Other personal services n.e.c.” in the NAF which includes “activities linked to social life”, for example the activities of “dating agencies”.
In this case, internet dating services consist of carrying out a certain number of operations via the web to put people in touch with the aim of facilitating meetings between them.
Among these operations, the most important consists for the professional to send an electronic mail to the electronic address of the consumer containing the coordinates of another consumer. By “contact details” the trader sends at least the other consumer’s email address.
The number and quality of other operations vary according to three commercial offers chosen by the consumer. The essential characteristics of these three commercial offers are as follows.
An “unsecured meeting”. If the consumer requests a “non-secure meeting”, then he is put in contact with another consumer who has also chosen the “non-secure meeting”. The professional draws the consumer’s attention to the fact that by paying no price, anyone can register and request an unsecured meeting. Therefore, with this choice, the consumer risks meeting a non-serious person or going to a ghost date. In 2020, the service concerning an “unsecured meeting” is free. The consumer can change his mind at any time. The professional has total freedom to perform or not to perform the service.
A “secure meeting”. If the consumer requests a secure meeting, then he becomes a “PREMIUM member”. As such, the consumer benefits from the “PREMIUM guarantee” to be put in contact with another PREMIUM member who has also paid to have a secure meeting. The “PREMIUM price” proves the seriousness of the demand on both sides. And consumers have access to the “PREMIUM service” for organizing their first meeting in town. In 2020, the price of the service concerning a “secure meeting” is 29.69 EUROS. Price reductions could be granted by the professional who would create special conditions or promotions. VAT is not applicable in accordance with article 293 B of the General Tax Code. If he chooses this offer, the consumer can change his mind because he has a withdrawal period of FOURTEEN (14) WORKING DAYS from the day after the conclusion of the contractual relationship. If this period expires on a Saturday, Sunday or a public holiday, it is extended until the first working day following. This period no longer exists in the event that the professional performs his service. The professional has a SIX (6) MONTH period from receipt of payment to perform his service. Otherwise, the professional reimburses the consumer.
A “secure and supported meeting”. If the consumer requests a “secure and accompanied meeting”, then he becomes a “VIP member” of the Femboy Club. As such, the consumer benefits from all the advantages of PREMIUM members and exclusive advantages for VIP members such as personalized support with a human relations advisor. In 2020, the price of the service concerning a “secure and accompanied meeting” is 269.69 EUROS. VAT is not applicable in accordance with article 293 B of the General Tax Code. Price reductions could be granted by the professional who would create special conditions or promotions. If he chooses this offer, the consumer can change his mind because he has a withdrawal period of TWENTY (20) WORKING DAYS from the day after the conclusion of the contractual relationship. If this period expires on a Saturday, Sunday or a public holiday, it is extended until the first working day following. This period no longer exists in the event that the professional performs his service. The professional has a period of TWELVE (12) MONTHS from the receipt of payment to perform his service. Otherwise, the professional reimburses the consumer.
In all of its offers, the professional undertakes an obligation of means. He is not bound by the result. Thus the professional guarantees that all the contact details he transmits come from consumers who have declared them themselves. The professional is not responsible in the case where, after having sent to the consumer an electronic mail containing the coordinates of another consumer, these coordinates generate no response, or if no meeting succeeds, or if the other consumer did not keep its promises.
These general conditions apply to the exclusion of all other conditions, and in particular those applicable by means of other distribution and marketing channels.
The sale is deemed concluded on the date of acceptance of the order.
Any order implies unreserved acceptance of these general conditions of sale which prevail over all other conditions, except those which have been expressly accepted by the professional.
