The Site is published and managed by the company Polyvalence SAS, RCS Paris 751 529 009, headquartered at 92 rue de Varenne, 75007 Paris.

Polyvalence SAS may amend the GTCS without notice at any time.

The GTCS may in no event be amended by the Buyer. The GTCS in force shall be those published on the Site at the time when the Buyer places their order on the Site.

If a Condition of Sale was found to be lacking, it would be considered as being governed by the provisions in force in the remote sales/in-home shopping sector whose companies are headquartered in France.

Should one or more provisions in these GTCS be rendered invalid subsequent to the application of a French legal provision or court ruling, the other provisions shall remain in force.

3. ORDERS

a. Buyers

The Buyer hereby declares that he/she has read and accepted these GTCS in their entirety prior to placing his/her order on the Site.

To be entitled to place a valid order on the Site, the Buyer must be at least 18 years of age and have legal capacity or be in possession of parental authorisation permitting him/her to place orders on the Site.

The Buyer therefore declares having the capacity to enter into this Agreement and not be under guardianship.

The Site reserves the right to ask any Buyer to provide proof of his/her age or of his/her parental authorisation, and not to honour the Buyer's order should the latter fail to provide such proof.  

The Site reserves the right to cancel any order (against refund) deemed not to meet the aforementioned criteria, without it however, being liable.

When the Buyer gives Polyvalence SAS, via the Site, their bank account details, needed for delivery of the product(s) featured on the site they must check the accuracy and the exhaustiveness of this information. In the case of a mistake in the contact details, Polyvalence SAS could not be held responsible for the inability to deliver products.

b. Products

The products sold by Polyvalence SAS are those shown on the Site on the day the Buyer consults the Site.

The Site may in no event be held liable if the illustrations are incorrect. Furthermore, the Site may not be held liable if the descriptions of the products shown on the Site do not match those delivered insofar as any errors do not affect the essential characteristics of the product, within the meaning of Article L111-1 of the French Consumer Code.

The Site shall inform the Buyer of the latest date by which it undertakes to deliver the products selected by the Buyer.

The Site shall honour orders placed by the Buyer as long as stocks last. Polyvalence SAS shall do its utmost to present an up-to-date record of product availability on the Site.

In the event that, in spite of the vigilance of Polyvalence SAS, one or more product(s) ordered by a Buyer are temporarily or permanently unavailable, or if the delivery time should exceed the date indicated on order by more than seven (7) days (except in cases of extreme and extenuating circumstances), Polyvalence SAS shall inform the Buyer thereof by email.

The Buyer shall then have the option of modifying or cancelling his/her order by mailing Polyvalence SAS by mail at contact@mychatelles.com.

Should an order be cancelled owing to delayed delivery, the Buyer shall be required to express his/her wish to cancel or modify his/her order within hundred (100) calendar days at the latest according to the date given for delivery of the order.

In the scenarios given in this paragraph, Polyvalence SAS undertakes to reimburse the Buyer whose payment has already been debited at the earliest opportunity and within twenty-five (25) days after payment at the latest. Polyvalence SAS shall not pay any compensation to the Buyer in such cases where endeavours are not achieved.

c. Prices

The prices of the products shown on the Site are in euros, including VAT, but do not include the Buyer's contribution to shipping costs.

Discounts shall be applied on order and shown in the Buyer's shopping basket, if he/she meets the terms and conditions that apply to take advantage of them and has correctly filled in the promotion codes.

The Buyer's contribution to shipping costs amounts, depending on the terms of delivery is as follows:

- DHL Domestic Express - France (including Monaco and Corsica): €9.90 per pair (£6.90, $10.90). The price is decreasing if several pairs are included in the same order.

- DHL Express Worldwide - EU: €16.90 per pair (£11.90, $18.50). The price is decreasing if many pairs are included in the same order.

- DHL Express Worldwide - Rest of the world (incl. USA, Asia and any other countries): €27.90 per pair (£19.50, $30.50). The price is decreasing if many pairs are included in the same order.

The aforementioned shipping costs decrease in price if several pairs are placed in the same order, and will be indicated in the summary of any order of a product(s) on the website. 

CAUTION: If the delivery country is not part of the European Union, customs duties may be charged to the recipient. Polyvalence SAS has no control over these charges that are the sole responsibility of the Buyer and must be incurred by the Buyer.

Polyvalence SAS reserves the right to change the prices without notice at any time. The prices applicable to the Buyer on order shall be those shown on the Site at the time of the Buyer's confirmation of his/her order on the Site.

d. Payment

The Chatelles (Polyvalence SAS) website uses the Ingenico secure payment system, provided by HSBC and Ogone. The entire transaction is sent in encrypted mode to a bank validation server in SSL (Secure Socket Layer) mode.

No bank information is stored on our server and Polyvalence SAS has no access to Buyers bank details: the input form is hosted directly at our partner bank, HSBC. We thus guarantee you a high level of security for all of your transactions on the Site.

Should the Buyer pay for his/her order with a non-French debit/credit card, such debit/credit card must be valid for international transactions. Furthermore, any commissions or other costs regarding payment that may be charged to him/her by his/her bank or by HSBC, which is provided to Chatelles’ (Polyvalence SAS) Ingenico secure payment system, shall be charged to the Buyer.

The sum to be paid for the order is indicated to the Buyer on the internet page summarising the items in his/her order. Before proceeding with payment, the Buyer therefore has the opportunity to check the details of his/her order and the total price online and correct any errors.

Payment is payable on order, by debit/credit card (including Amex) and Paypal only. The Buyer guarantees Polyvalence SAS that he/she is fully entitled to use the debit/credit card used to pay. Should a Buyer's payment be refused by the bank, Polyvalence SAS reserves the right to cancel shipping of his/her order. All new orders placed by such Buyer may be suspended or cancelled by Polyvalence SAS.

Only the debit/credit cards mentioned on the website are accepted. When placing the order, the Buyer must provide the Site with the relevant information on his/her debit/credit card requested of him/her (card number, expiry date, security code (on the back of the card)). The online payment is secure. The information processed is encrypted, and only the online payment system (provided by HSBC) can access them.

The Buyer's debit/credit card shall be debited on confirmation by our bank of acceptance of the Buyer's payment.

The products continue to be the full and entire property of Polyvalence SAS until payment for the products invoiced has been collected in full, including shipping costs and taxes.

Payment is the final stage in confirmation of the order. The Buyer may modify any of the items in his/her order at any time, until he/she has confirmed payment. When payment is confirmed by the Buyer, the order is validated and becomes firm.

The Buyer shall receive an email from the Site at the email address provided, acknowledging receipt and summarising the items in the order that he/she has placed.

The Buyer expressly recognizes that the transmission - in addition to the full name as it appears on their credit card - their card number, the expiration date of the latter and, above all, its cryptogram give authorisation to debit their account of the price of the Product(s) ordered on the Site. 

e. Delivery

Upon confirmation by the bank of acceptance of the Buyer's payment, Polyvalence SAS shall process the order insofar as stocks last.

Orders are delivered to the delivery address provided by the Buyer when ordering on the Site, provided that contact details are correct.

As Polyvalence SAS has no control over such times, the payment of any penalties or compensation to the Buyer by Polyvalence SAS shall not be accepted on any grounds. Conversely, the Buyer is entitled to cancel his/her order according to the terms laid down in Article 3–b of these GTCS.

If, in spite of everything, it proves impossible to complete delivery or should the Buyer refuse to accept said delivery, the parcel shall be returned to Polyvalence SAS. The products ordered shall be reimbursed (by crediting the debit/credit card used during the order) within twenty-five (25) days at the latest of return of the parcel to Polyvalence SAS.

Similarly, and more generally, if the direct responsibility of Polyvalence SAS was questioned, the Company may waive all or part of aforementioned responsibility by proving that the non-performance or improper performance of the contract concluded with the Buyer (with DHL) and is attributable either to it or to the fact of an unpredictable and insurmountable third party contract, or in the case of a major event.
