TREFLE ROUGE has no control over these charges, which are the sole responsibility of the CUSTOMER.

If both the repair and the replacement of the product are impossible, the buyer may return the product and have the price refunded, or keep the product and have part of the price refunded.
The same option is open to him:

The buyer may only rescind the contract if the lack of conformity is not minor.
