CONDITIONS OF PRACTICE OF ACTIVITIES AND RESPONSIBILITY

Given the specific and adventurous nature of our activities, each participant is aware of the risks they may run. He assumes them with full knowledge of the facts and undertakes not to place the responsibility for these risks on EXTÉRIEUR NATURE. This also applies to beneficiaries and any family member.

Our activities are open to everyone, however, depending on the activities and courses, certain conditions must be taken into account: age limit, weight, height, swimming skills, technical or physical level, contraindications, etc. To know these conditions, please refer to the technical sheets of the different activities (available on our website https://www.exterieur-nature.com/). EXTÉRIEUR NATURE and its service providers reserve the right to refuse the requested service if the beneficiary does not meet the stated conditions.

The documents associated with the services presented on the website www.exterior-nature.com, such as descriptions, information sheets, photographs, drawings or other types of visual or sound information, are given for information only and cannot bind NATURAL EXTERIOR.

You must not be the subject of a medical contraindication to the practice of the chosen activity: canyoning, rafting, hydrospeed, tree climbing, tubing, climbing, via ferrata.

FRAMEWORK CONDITIONS

All the activities offered by EXTÉRIEUR NATURE are supervised or supervised by guides and attendants holding the required diplomas and certifications, in accordance with the regulations in force.

Canyoning, tubing, climbing and via ferrata activities are supervised by independent workers (guides), within the framework of a convention of liberal services. EXTÉRIEUR NATURE acts as a simple transparent intermediary in the name and on behalf of the liberal service provider. Consequently, EXTÉRIEUR NATURE collects the prices of canyoning, via ferrata, climbing and tubing services on behalf of the liberal service provider.

Rafting and hydrospeed activities are managed and supervised by SUD RAFTING. The intervention of EXTÉRIEUR NATURE is limited to simply putting the beneficiary in touch with SUD RAFTING, which organizes the services under its sole responsibility, collects the prices of these services directly and personally and pays a commission to EXTÉRIEUR NATURE.

  • Up to 20 days before departure: 50% of the amount of the stay will be required.
  • 19 days or less before departure: 100% of the amount of the stay will be required.

RIGHT TO RETRACT

For activities booked on a specific date:

According to Article L221-28 of the Consumer Code, the consumer's right of withdrawal does not apply to contracts relating to the provision of accommodation services, other than residential accommodation, goods transport services , car rentals, catering or leisure activities that must be provided on a specific date or period. The reservation of leisure activities on a specific date is therefore not subject to a right of withdrawal.

For the purchase of EXTÉRIEUR NATURE gift cards:

When purchasing an EXTÉRIEUR NATURE gift card, the buyer has, under the terms of Article L 221-18 of the Consumer Code, a period of fourteen clear days from the date of purchase to exercise his right of withdrawal, without having to justify reasons or pay penalties. The right of withdrawal cannot be exercised by the beneficiary of the gift card, unless the latter is the purchaser of said gift card.

This withdrawal must be notified by letter or e-mail, mentioning your surname, first name, postal address and e-mail address. It must be sent to EXTÉRIEUR NATURE, by e-mail to the address contact@exterieur-nature.com or by post to the following address : Base Eaux Vives, Route d'Eus, 66 320 Marquixanes, France.

EXTÉRIEUR NATURE will reimburse the gift card within fourteen days of receipt of the withdrawal.

The right of withdrawal cannot be exercised by the buyer if the EXTÉRIEUR NATURE gift card has been used or has not been paid for in full. The fact of exercising his right of withdrawal under the normal conditions of payment prevents the buyer from exercising his right of repudiation of his online payment by credit card with his bank. To this end, a certificate of non-repudiation of payment will be requested from it before reimbursement, which will be sent to banking organizations and/or officially accredited organizations.
