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.

The Program is available to individuals for their personal use only and is limited to one account per individual. Corporations, associations or other groups may not participate in the Program. Individuals who are legal residents of Canada and who provide and maintain a valid email address are eligible to become members. No purchase is necessary to join the Program. We may refuse to create an account for any reason. Employees and individuals employed by our business partners or vendors are eligible for membership, but may be excluded from certain benefits of the Program.
(b) By joining the Program and becoming a Program member, you agree that you have read, understood and agree to be bound by these Terms and by any changes or modifications we may make. You should review these Terms and the related policies and FAQs frequently as they may change from time to time. These Terms do not alter in any way the terms or conditions of any other agreement you may have with us, including any agreement for products or services. The Program or any provisions thereof must be interpreted, applied and adapted as required according to applicable laws in the various provinces of Canada. Membership is at the country level. Membership benefits and points cannot be transferred between the Club Clarins Canada Loyalty Program and other programs offered by Clarins in other countries.
14.2 Program Enrollment(a) Eligible individuals may enroll in the Program by visiting the Site and following the Program prompts to register for the Program.
(b) You are required to provide your email address in order to enroll in the Program.

You are solely responsible for maintaining the accuracy of your account information and for updating it as required. You may update your personal information on the Site.
(c) Only one Program account may be associated with a single email address.
14.3 How the Program Works(a) The Program is our way to recognize and reward our customers for purchasing & using Clarins products, as well as participating in select brand activities. Under the Program, members earn points that they can redeem for complimentary products, Club Clarins Dollars, services and other rewards available through our online rewards catalogue. The more points a member earns, the higher their tier and access to the tier’s corresponding benefits in addition to a more extensive rewards selection! Rewards and tier benefits evolve over time and may be available on a limited basis, so be sure to check the latest offerings on the Site. We also communicate on the Program benefits and promotions through Email & Web Site marketing. Visit our FAQs to learn more about earning points and reaching the Program loyalty tiers.
(b) The Program is a tier-based program determined by the number of points a member has earned within a rolling 12-months basis on eligible purchases and through qualifying activities, beginning on the date when you enroll or reach a new tier. There are 3 tiers with associated benefits:
Tier 1: LIKE 0-1,999 points
Tier 2: LOVE 2,000-7,999 points
Tier 3: ADORE 8,000+ points
(c) When you join, you’ll be automatically eligible for Tier 1, LIKE and associated benefits. Once you earn at least 2000 points during the 12 months following your enrollment or earlier, you’ll be automatically moved up to Tier 2, LOVE. If you earn 8000 points or more in your first year or earlier, you’ll qualify for Tier 3, ADORE.
(d) Your status in a particular tier is good for 12 months from when you first qualify for that tier. After that, you’ll need to have earned enough points to qualify for that tier again to renew. Otherwise you will be in the tier that corresponds to the number of points earned. For example, if you are in Tier 2, LOVE, starting November 1, 2022, you’ll maintain LOVE status until October 31, 2023. If you earn between 2,000 and 7,999 points during this timeframe, we will renew your Tier 2 LOVE status for another 12 months. If you earn less points, you will become a Tier 1 LIKE member starting November 1, 2023 for another 12 months’ timeframe or until you earn enough points to upgrade to another tier.
(e) In order for your purchases & brand activities to qualify for the Program, you must be enrolled in the Program within 30 days of the date of purchase and either (1) be signed into your online account at the time of purchase; or (2) provide your Program member identification (that is, the email address you registered under the Program) when (a) purchasing on the Site and/or (b) submitting your qualifying receipt(s) from an authorized retailer within 30 days of the date of purchase. However, if your membership in the Program is terminated for any reason and you enroll in a new Program account, any purchases made prior to the date you enroll in a new Program account do not qualify for points.
