Article 5 : THE "E-RESERVATION" OPTION

BBL reserves the right to suspend this feature at any time and in particular 48h00 before the start of sales periods or commercial operations.
5.1 Booking procedure
The booking procedure is as follows:
• For each product, the service offers the user a list of the nearest shops that have PRODUCTS in stock for which an e-reservation may be used. When choosing a product, the user selects one of the shops located in mainland France. Users may only place one item in their shopping cart.
• The withdrawal of PRODUCTS in multiple shops will require as many e-reservations as selected shops.
• To withdraw several products from the same shop, multiple reservation carts must be created.
• When the reservation cart is finalized, the WEBSITE requests the user’s email, name and phone number at which they can be contacted by the shop.
• The user then receives the following from the selected shop:
1. an email acknowledging receipt of reservation, stating that the request was sent,
2. an e-mail informing the user of the availability of the product and the withdrawal deadline, or its unavailability. Confirmation of the e-reservation by the user constitutes proof of reservation. This confirmation entails acceptance of all operations on the WEBSITE by the user.
The prices applicable to all products are those in effect on the WEBSITE. The purchase price is that applicable on the day of reservation confirmation by the user. The prices shown on the WEBSITE are applicable to sale on the website and / or e-reservation and may differ from those applied in shops. This price difference cannot be contested by the user.
5.3 Availability of products in shop

However, it is understood that this availability is indicated for guidance only, and that the products may be sold between the time of reservation by the user and validation of this e-reservation by the shop. Should the reserved product become unavailable, the shop will inform the user.

As such, the user acknowledges that this deadline may not be met (in cases other than those listed above), especially in the case of technical problems during reservation by the user, preventing processing of the latter by a selected shop. When an e-mail confirmation of receipt of and availability of the product is sent by the shop selected by the user, the product will remain reserved for 48h00. The date and time of the reservation withdrawal limit will also be given in this email
In order to withdraw a product, the user must present the email or an SMS confirmation and notice of availability of the product. Beyond this deadline, and if the user does not come to purchase the product reserved, this reservation will be automatically cancelled. The product will be made available for sale and will no longer be available to the customer, having exceeded the withdrawal period. Should the user wish to cancel the reservation, they must click on the cancellation link in the reservation confirmation email.
