4.1          The order received on the Site is subject to strict compliance with the procedures described below also concretised by a succession of different screens on which are indicated the successive phases that the Client must imperatively respect to validate his/her order.

Step One: Client selection of Products

On the Site, the Client selects, enters and validates the identification and the quantity of the Products that he/she wishes to order (the availability of which is to be confirmed by the Seller if necessary); the said Products shall be added to his/her “Cart”.

When requested, the Client chooses his/her options, and indicates the personal data concerning him/her.

Step Two: Verification of the selected Products

The Client may freely modify his “Cart” made up of the selected Products, delete an initially selected Product, modify the quantities ordered or add a Product by clicking on the corresponding items made available to him/her within the “Cart”. Within the “Cart”, the price of the items – as defined in article 5 hereafter – is automatically displayed.

Step Three: Confirmation of the selected Products and validation of the order

Once the Client has completed his/her selection and wishes to validate the composition of his/her “Cart”, he/she must then identify himself/herself:

  • if he/she has an account on the Site: by his/her e-mail address (id) and his/her password;
  • if he/she does not have an account on the Site, in particular: by his/her name, his/her usual home address to which the order will be invoiced, his/her telephone number.

The Client must also validate:

–                     the delivery address of the order;

–                      the desired shipping method.

Once all this information is regularly entered and validated, the price of the items – as defined in article 8 hereafter – and the shipping charges will be displayed automatically.

After communicating his/her credit card number, in compliance with the conditions of article 6 hereafter, the Client then clicks on the “VALIDATE MY PAYMENT” button in order to debit his/her bank card.

This order commits the Client as soon as he/she has clicked on the “VALIDATE MY PAYMENT” button.

Step Four: Acknowledgement of the order by the Seller

The Seller then acknowledges receipt of the order in the form of an e-mail sent to the e-mail address communicated by the Client. The Client formally accepts the use of the e-mail for confirmation by the Seller of the content of his/her order.

This confirmation e-mail contains all the information communicated by the Client, indicating any difficulties or reservations raised by the order (availability of items ordered, delivery time, refusal of all or part of the order). It mentions the order number assigned to the Client by the Seller.

4.2          The contract is concluded between the Seller and the Client when sending the aforementioned confirmation email. This contract is concluded in accordance with the order and these General Terms and Conditions of Sales, subject to any limitations mentioned in this confirmation email.

4.3          Generally, this express agreement between the Seller and the Client provides that e-mails will be authentic between the parties as well as the automatic registration systems used on the Site, in particular as to the nature and date of the order. The Seller’s confirmation e-mail confirms the contents of the order and the contract between the parties.

By communicating the information relating to his/her credit card, the Client authorises the Seller to debit his/her credit card for the amount corresponding to the price of his/her order, including any taxes and delivery charges. To this end, the Client confirms that he is the holder of the credit card to debit and that the name on the credit card is actually his/hers. The Client shall communicate the sixteen digits and the expiry date of his/her credit card and, where applicable, the numbers of the visual cryptogram.
