It is expressly agreed that this control, internal and proper to the functioning of Happy-Post, does not release the customer from his obligations concerning the conditions of admission of the parcels. 

The acceptance and the treatment of the parcel by Happy-Post does not amount to a guarantee as to the solidity and the sufficiency of the conditioning and the packing, nor of its adaptation to the contents, which Happy-Post ignores.

If the customer's failure to comply with one or more of the admission conditions prevents and/or complicates the processing of the parcel, Happy-Post will contact the customer by e-mail and offer to return the parcel to the drop-off point.
