General terms and conditions of sale
The present General Terms and Conditions of Sale determine the rights and obligations of the parties within the framework of the online sale of cosmetic products, care products, perfume, etc.
These General Terms and Conditions of Sale (GTS) govern the sales of Products, made through the Company’s websites, and are an integral part of the Contract between the Buyer and the Seller. They are fully enforceable against the Buyer who has accepted them before placing an order:
- The Seller reserves the right to modify these terms and conditions at any time by publishing a new version on its website. The applicable GTC then are those in force on the date of payment of the order.
- The Customer declares that he has read all of these General Terms and Conditions of Sale, and where applicable the Special Terms and Conditions of Sale linked to a product or service, and accepts them without restriction or reservation.
- The Customer acknowledges that he has received the necessary advice and information to ensure that the offer meets his needs.

The prices of the products sold through the websites are indicated in Euros including all taxes on the product description pages and excluding specific shipping costs. For all products shipped outside the European Union and/or DOM-TOM, the price is automatically calculated net of tax on the invoice. Customs duties or other local taxes or import duties or state taxes may be payable in certain cases. These duties and sums are not the responsibility of the Seller. They will be borne by the purchaser and are his responsibility (declarations, payment to the competent authorities, etc.). The Seller therefore invites the buyer to inquire about these aspects with the corresponding local authorities. The Company reserves the right to modify its prices at any time in the future. The telecommunication costs necessary to access the Company’s websites are to be borne by the Customer. Where applicable, delivery costs are also payable by the Client.
