He is liable for defects in conformity existing at the time of delivery of the goods within the meaning of Article L.216-1, which appear within two years of delivery. In the case of a contract of sale of a good comprising digital elements :
1° When the contract provides for the continuous supply of a digital content or a digital service during a duration lower or equal to two years, or when the contract does not determine the duration of supply, the salesman answers for the defects of conformity of this digital content or this digital service which appear within two years as from the delivery of the good;
2° Where the contract provides for the continuous supply of digital content or a digital service for a period of more than two years, the seller shall be liable for any lack of conformity of such digital content or digital service that appears during the period in which it is supplied under the contract.
For such goods, the applicable period does not deprive the consumer of his right to updates in accordance with the provisions of Article L.217-19.
The seller shall also be liable, during the same time period, for any lack of conformity resulting from the packaging, the assembly instructions or the installation when the latter has been made his responsibility under the contract or has been carried out under his responsibility, or when the incorrect installation, carried out by the consumer as provided for in the contract, is due to shortcomings or errors in the installation instructions provided by the seller.
This warranty period applies without prejudice to articles 2224 and following of the Civil Code. The starting point of the limitation period for the consumer's action is the day on which the consumer becomes aware of the lack of conformity.
According to Article L.217-4 of the Consumer Code: "The good is in conformity with the contract if it meets in particular, where appropriate, 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 fit for any special purpose sought by the consumer, made known to the seller at the latest at the time of the conclusion of the contract and accepted by the latter;
3° It is delivered with all the accessories and installation instructions to be provided in accordance with the contract;
4° It is updated in accordance with the contract."
Article L.217-5 of the Consumer Code states that:
"I.- In addition to the criteria of conformity to the contract, the good is conform if it meets the following criteria:
1° It is fit for the purpose usually expected of a good of the same type, taking into account, if applicable, any provisions of European Union law and national law as well as all technical standards or, in the absence of such technical standards, specific codes of conduct applicable to the sector concerned;
2° Where applicable, it has the qualities that the seller has presented to the consumer in the form of a sample or model, before the conclusion of the contract;
3° Where applicable, the digital elements it contains are provided in the most recent version available at the time the contract is concluded, unless the parties agree otherwise;
4° Where applicable, it is delivered with all the accessories, including packaging, and installation instructions that the consumer can legitimately expect;
5° Where applicable, it is supplied with the updates that the consumer may legitimately expect, in accordance with the provisions of Article L.217-19;
6° it corresponds to the quantity, quality and other characteristics, including durability, functionality, compatibility and safety, that the consumer can legitimately expect for goods of the same type, taking into account the nature of the goods as well as public statements made by the seller, by any person upstream in the chain of transactions, or by a person acting on their behalf, including in advertising or on the label.
II.- However, the seller is not bound by any of the public statements mentioned in the preceding paragraph if he demonstrates:
1° That he did not know them and was not legitimately able to know them ;
2° that at the time the contract was entered into, the public statements had been corrected in a manner comparable to the original statements; or
3° or that the public statements could not have influenced the decision to purchase.
III.- The consumer may not contest the conformity by invoking a defect concerning one or more particular characteristics of the good, which he was specifically informed deviated from the criteria of conformity set out in this article, deviation to which he has expressly and separately consented at the time of the conclusion of the contract."
Pursuant to Article L. 217-28 of the Consumer Code: "When the consumer asks the guarantor, during the course of the legal warranty or the commercial warranty granted to him at the time of the acquisition or repair of a good, for a repair covered by this warranty, any period of immobilization suspends the warranty that remained to run until the delivery of the good repaired. This period shall run from the time of the consumer's request for intervention or the time the goods are made available for repair or replacement, if this starting point is more favorable to the consumer. The warranty period is also suspended when the consumer and the guarantor enter into negotiations for an amicable settlement."
Under the terms of article L.218-2, notwithstanding article 2254 of the Civil Code, the parties to a contract between a professional and a consumer may not, even by mutual agreement, modify the duration of the limitation period, nor add to the causes of its suspension or interruption.
Thus, when acting under the legal warranty of conformity, the consumer: has a period of two years from the delivery of the goods to act; can choose between repair or replacement of the goods, subject to the cost conditions provided for in Article L.217-12 of the Consumer Code; is exempted from proving the existence of the lack of conformity of the goods during the six months following delivery of the goods. This period is extended to twenty-four months from March 18, 2016, except for used goods (now twelve months). The legal guarantee of conformity applies independently of any commercial guarantee that may have been granted. The consumer may decide to implement the guarantee against hidden defects of the thing sold within the meaning of Article 1641 of the Civil Code. In this case, he can choose between the resolution of the sale or a reduction of the sale price in accordance with Article 1644 of the Civil Code.
According to articles 1641 and 1648 paragraph 1 of the civil code:
"The seller is bound by the warranty for hidden defects of the thing sold which make it unfit for the purpose for which it was intended, or which so diminish this use that the buyer would not have acquired it, or would have given only a lesser price, if he had known them. "
The action resulting from redhibitory defects must be brought by the purchaser within two years of the discovery of the defect. (...) ".
According to French law, the seller cannot exempt himself from this warranty or limit its scope with respect to a consumer.
The consumer can decide to implement the warranty against hidden defects of the thing sold within the meaning of Article 1641 of the Civil Code and can choose between the resolution of the sale or a reduction of the sale price in accordance with Article 1644 of the Civil Code. Finally, in accordance with Article 2232 of the Civil Code, it is recalled that: "The postponement of the starting point, the suspension or interruption of the statute of limitations may not have the effect of extending the period of extinctive limitation beyond twenty years from the day on which the right arose."
