3.  Products Availability

Books and supplies: we work with our own data bases to compile  our shop and sales catalogues. The data bases are constantly updated based on the information communicated by our suppliers. The totality of these products are not stored in our reserves and as a result our sale offers are made on the condition that the articles are made available by the suppliers. We hence cannot be made responsible for being out of stock.

Important: The non available articles are deleted from our shop only if the rupture is announced to us by the supplier; in the other cases, the missing articles will be delivered to you upon the availability of the supplier. The old and second-hand books are available in limited quantity, generally on a once off basis. We cannot consequently guarantee the delivery of it to you if the number of orders is higher than the number of articles in stock. Some products, announced directly on the site are exclusively delivered in Metropolitan France. Items that will be published are presented on the site cgb.fr in a pre-order capacity. They are delivered on the date of issue for  sale. CGB, CGF, cgb.fr could not be held responsible for a possible delay in delivery or shortage of products.

Coins and Paper Money: The coins and paper money are available in limited quantity, generally on a once off basis. We cannot consequently guarantee the delivery of it to you if the number of orders is higher than the number of articles in stock. Some items, announced directly on the site are exclusively delivered in Metropolitan France.

5. Shipping costs

The shipping costs include a share in the expenses of preparation and packing + the costs of postage. For Metropolitan France (Corsica included), they are contractual.

In the case of loss or theft noted during the sending of the package, we urge you to contact our customer service as soon as possible.

When we get the conclusion of this investigation, and only so far as your responsibility is not involved, we commit ourselves to carry out a refunding of the total amount of the order. We recommend that you never accept a parcel or to send one whose packaging is open. The acceptance of such a parcel thus engages your responsibility.
