- Conclusion of the contract
The contract between Yosono and the Client shall be deemed to be executed at the moment that the Client receives confirmation from Yosono that his/her order proposal, sent through the process set out on the Website, has been concluded successfully, once the availability of the Product has been verified and the price for the purchase has been debited to the Client’s credit card or in the case of payment by bank transfer, confirmation of the receipt of the bank transfer in cleared funds has been received by Yosono no later than 3 working days after the creation of the order, after which the order is to be considered canceled.

Yosono reserves the right to partially fulfil any order proposal in the event that one or more of the Products ordered by the Client is not available. In such cases, only the sum relating to the partially fulfilled order proposal shall be debited.

- Invalidity of the order proposal

(iii) attempts to exercise a right of cancellation in any illegitimate manner.
In such cases, the order proposal sent by the Client shall be void and have no effect. Yosono shall notify the Client, by email, of its non-acceptance of the order proposal and the failure to conclude the contract and shall also cancel any debit and/or charge against the Client.
