However, the Client can cancel his order if it has not yet been prepared.

In this case, a red “cancel my order” button will appear in the “my orders” section of the Customer account. If the order has already been prepared or dispatched and the possibility of cancellation is no longer available, the “cancel my order” button will be greyed out or not be available.

Once the order is validated, the customer can print a summary of their order, which will be sent to them by email, along with the form for exercising their right of withdrawal if necessary. This document should be kept as it serves as proof of the customer's order and the contract between the parties.

 In any case, LE PETIT VAPOTEUR reserves the right not to fulfil any request from the customer that is excessive or deviates from common law and its general conditions, or when the customer is not up to date with their obligations towards LE PETIT VAPOTEUR.

  • a photocopy of the letter of reservation addressed to the carrier.
  • and a photocopy of the delivery receipt mentioning such reservations.

6.1 General Stipulations

LE PETIT VAPOTEUR is liable for the lack of conformity in contracted goods under the Article L.217-4 and the French Consumer Code against defects of products sold stipulated in Article 1641 of the French Civil Code.

As such the Client an make a request under the legal guarantee of conformity or the guarantee of defects hidden under things sold by addressing their claim to LE PETIT VAPOTEUR mentioned in Article 1 as present:

When acting under the Legal Conformity, the Client

- has a period of up to 2 years from delivery to act

- can choose from repairing or replacement under the reserved conditions of Article L.217-9 of the French Consumer Code.

- It is incumbent on the Client to provide any proof as to the reality of any defaults under the conformity of 24 months following the delivery of the goods.

- The legal guarantee of the conformity independently applies to the commercial guarantee that may be granted.

- Any goods repaired under the legal warranty of conformity benefit from a six-month extension of this warranty.

- The Client can decide to implement the guarantee against hidden defects of products sold under the Article 1641 of the French Civil Code, and in this case, the Client can choose from the resolution of sale or a reduction of the selling price in conformant of the Article 1644 of the French Civil Code.

The provisions of Articles L. 217-4, L. 217-5, L. 217-12, and L. 217-16 of the Consumer Code (former) and Articles L. 217-4, L. 217-5, L. 217-7, L. 217-8, L. 217-9, L. 217-11, L. 217-12, and L. 217-13 of the Consumer Code (new), as well as Articles 1641, 1644, and the first paragraph of Article 1648 of the Civil Code, are reproduced in Article 16 of these general conditions.

6.2 Complementary Precisions 

The legal conformity as mentioned above, LE PETIT VAPOTEUR must deliver products conformed to the contract and respond to defaults of conformity existing in the time of delivery.

As such, it is stated that the commercialised products by LE PETIT VAPOTEUR, in particular the accumulators have a duration of limited longevity which depends essentially on the conditions of use of the product by the Client (frequent utilisation, shocks, maintenance default, exposure to extreme temperatures, contact with water, etc...).

The lifespan of almost all the commercialised products by LE PETIT VAPOTEUR is inferior to a delay of 24 months corresponding to the duration of the legal guarantee of conformity.

- Refills (e-liquids, concentrated flavors, bases, boosters) that have a Best Before Date indicated on the product.

  • Coils and cartridges with built-in coils: their usage duration should not exceed three weeks under normal use and following the instructions.
  • Batteries (cells) and integrated batteries in electronic cigarettes: their autonomy will be affected after 300 full charge cycles under normal use and following the instructions.
  • Disposable electronic cigarettes (puffs): their duration of use is indicated in the product description on the website as well as on the packaging, and it is counted in the number of puffs (usually between 300 and 600 depending on the purchased product).

Also, the presumption of existence at the time of delivery with the products, the conformity defaults in 24 months following the delivery, is practically never compatible with the specific nature of products.

In consequence, in accordance with the article L.217-7 of the French Consumer Code, LE PETIT VAPOTEUR can fight this presumption.

6.3 Special Return Conditions Based on Manufacturers:

  • Products from the brands Wheels & Time, Pipeline, Dotmod, Titanide, Cigabois, Animodz, and Lostvape are handled directly by the manufacturer.

  • Defective products from the brands Surric, Yihi, Chalet-MFG, and 3D Make Art may be sent by LE PETIT VAPOTEUR for repair with the manufacturer (the duration of support may vary from 2 to 6 weeks).

6.4 Warranty Exclusions: 

Modified, repaired, integrated, or added products by the Customer are excluded from the warranty. 

The warranty does not apply to visible defects. The warranty does not cover products damaged during transportation or due to improper use. As such, defects and damages to the products caused by non-compliance with the safety instructions regarding storage precautions specified on the packaging are excluded from the warranty. 

Defects and damages caused by incorrect usage, non-compliant maintenance, abnormal use, lack of supervision, inadequate electrical protection of the devices, or any such circumstances detrimental to the proper functioning of the devices, or by a product modification not foreseen or specified by LE PETIT VAPOTEUR, are excluded from the warranty. 

The warranty immediately and completely ceases if the product is used under abnormal conditions. 

In case of lack of maintenance, the warranty will be totally or partially void.


7.1 Claim / Liability

In case of any (see article 6), the Client should therefore provide justification enabling confirmation of defaults or anomalies stated. It should be left up to LE PETIT VAPOTEUR to facilitate a procedure to observe these vices or anomalies.

Under the reserve of exercise and eventual rights of retraction, returned products must be expressly agreed by LE PETIT VAPOTEUR. All Items must be returned where possible in their original packaging, with their labels and with all their components and accessories; and accompanied with the notice and a copy of the invoice.

All returns will result in replacement of the product or reimbursement to the Clients Account, issued to the Client after qualitative and quantitative checks of the returned items. The costs and risks of returning an item are assumed by the Client, if the non-conformity is not proven.

7.2 Commercial Guarantee

In addition, it is reminded that LE PETIT VAPOTEUR is not the producer, in the sense of articles 1245 and following the Civil Code, the commercialised products via the Website.

If the Client seeks compensation of such damages, they should contact the manager of the concerned supplier.

In the same way, the party concerned shall inform the other party of the end of the force majeure and from the time of such notification, the contract shall be executable again.

If such an event exceeds fifteen (15) days after its notification date, the contract shall be considered legally terminated. Any sums received by LE PETIT VAPOTEUR before this date shall be reimbursed to the Client.


The Client promises to transmit to LE PETIT VAPOTEUR all the necessary elements for successful order execution. In this respect, the Client remains responsible for the content and precision of information transmitted to LE PETIT VAPOTEUR, and especially to those in relation to its majority.

Items are used under the sole responsibility of the Client. Under these conditions, the Client is responsible for keeping the item/product in good condition, to use it according to its purpose, by following in particular the applicable stipulations provided by LE PETIT VAPOTEUR or suppliers.


Pursuant to article 221-18 of the French Consumer Code, the Client has a retraction period of fourteen (14) clear days from the reception date of items ordered ( the date of the reception is not counted in the period, it starts to run from the next day). If the withdrawal expires on a Saturday, Sunday or on a Public Holiday or a non-working day, it is extended until the first following working day.
