2) Or have the characteristics defined by mutual agreement between the parties or be suitable for any special use sought by the purchaser that was communicated to the seller and agreed by the latter.
Article L.211-7 of the French Consumer Code: Unless proved otherwise, any lack of conformity appearing within six months of delivery of the product is presumed to have existed at the time of delivery. The seller may refute this presumption if it is incompatible with the nature of the product or the non-conformity invoked.

Warranty on hidden defects:
Article 1641 of the French Civil Code The seller is bound by the warranty if hidden defects in the product sold render the product unfit for its intended use or reduce its usefulness to such an extent that the purchaser would not have bought it, or would only have paid less for it, had they been aware of the defects.
