2- Placement of order – Offer – Contract conclusion
Orders may be placed exclusively online at the website of the Clarins Shop at Clarins.ca (the “Site”) which is available in English and French. Before placing the order, the Buyer may review and change the order related data at anytime in the shopping basket area of the Site. The Buyer may identify and correct input errors at anytime, before finally submitting the order by clicking the "submit order" button, by reviewing the order and the price, reviewing the details of each product and selecting or deselecting a product.
The presentation of products on the Site does not constitute a binding offer from the Seller.
We reserve the right to limit the maximum product quantity and/or the maximum amount per order.
Orders placed by clicking the "submit order" button by the Buyer constitute a binding offer to us to enter into a purchase agreement. However, orders may be placed and transmitted only if the Buyer accepts these Terms and Conditions by placing a checkmark in the appropriate check box, thereby including them into his/her offer. Once the Buyer has placed an order with the Seller, we will send him/her an e-mail confirming receipt and listing details of the order (order confirmation) without undue delay. This order confirmation does not constitute acceptance of the offer, but is only intended to inform the Buyer that we received his/her order. A contract of sale shall be concluded only when we ship the ordered product to the Buyer and confirm shipping with a second e-mail (shipping confirmation). No contract of sale shall be concluded for products not listed in the shipping confirmation. The Seller shall be the contracting party. The Seller does not intent to offer products for purchase to minors. Our products may only be purchased by people who have reached the age of the majority in accordance with the applicable law. The concluded contract will be stored by the Seller and is available for the Buyer on request. You may request a copy of your contract via e-mail.
For the avoidance of doubt, these Terms and Conditions shall apply to the formation of any such contract as soon as of your review of the products and services advertised on the Site.
