- Unless explicitly mentioned, the Products sold on the Site do not constitute childcare articles within the meaning of decree n ° 91-1292 of December 20, 1991 and of the circular of July 29, 1992. In this regard, they are not subject to the regulations applicable to these articles and are not subject to the same tests;
- Clem & Léon modular saddlebags (ref. S00101 and S00102) are not products intended to ensure or facilitate the seating, movement or transport of children but offer a secondary function of carrying extra for the child. Carrying, an accessory function of the saddlebags and not the main one, does not provide for any child restraint system against falls. The parent must therefore necessarily ensure the safety of his child by retaining him permanently, in particular by means of his arm;
- The Clem & Léon (ref. S00101 and S00102), Squamish (ref. S00201 and S00202) and Mini-Squamish (ref. S00301) bags have an attachment system, for attachment to a stroller for example. The attachment to the stroller is therefore likely, depending on the weight of the contents of the bag, to cause destabilization of the stroller. It is the parent’s responsibility to be sufficiently vigilant to avoid any fall from the stroller and / or the child;
- The use of the Clem & Léon bag (ref. S00101 and S00102) is the subject of instructions for use in the user manual which it is the Customer’s responsibility to strictly observe.

- By Paypal: for payment by credit card via Paypal, the credit card number is directed to the Paypal server, payment is made directly in a secure environment without going through the Company’s server, a guarantee which is all the more important as the numbers are known only to our partner Paypal.
