Terms of Service
These conditions of sale are concluded on the one hand by the Tricot Company (hereinafter, “Tricot”) whose registered office is located at 61 rue des Petits-Champs – 75001 Paris (France) and on the other hand by any natural or legal person seeking to make a purchase via the website of Tricot, (hereinafter “the buyer”). These conditions of sale are intended to establish the contractual relationship between Tricot and the Buyer and the conditions applicable to any purchase effected through the online shop of Tricot. The Tricot Company will be responsible for taking and delivering orders. Similarly, payments will be made to the Tricot Company. Any order taken in respect of a product appearing on the online shop on the website www.tricotparis.com implies that these conditions of sale have been read, understood and accepted. Tricot reserves the right to modify these general conditions of sale from time to time, having regard to changes in the law. Any modifications made shall become applicable when they are posted online.
2. SUBMISSION OF THE ORDER
Contractual information will be confirmed by e-mail to the address indicated by the buyer on the purchase order. The products for sale are those which appear in the catalogue published on the website of Tricot and which were subject to quality control. Every effort is made to show all the product characteristics by photographs and a product description prepared based on the information provided by the manufacturer. Tricot undertakes to make its best efforts to describe the products as accurately as possible. However, any errors or omissions in the description shall not entail the liability of Tricot. The products are offered for sale while stocks last. Stocks being limited in quantity, a notice will be placed on items that are out of stock. However, in the event of error concerning the availability of the article, Tricot undertakes to refund the buyer. Certain offers may be made for a short duration, subject to a specific advertisement. The photographs of the catalogue are as faithful a depiction as possible of the product but cannot be an exact depiction thereof, in particular as concerns colours.
On no account may an order be placed by professional salespersons either jointly or severally, for the purposes of their commercial activities, regardless of what means they use to market their products. The buyer recognizes and accepts that Tricot reserves the right to refuse an order manifestly placed by a professional salesperson, in light of the number of products ordered in a single order and of the number of independent orders placed for the same product, compared to the usual quantities ordered by the average consumer.
The prices displayed in the catalogue are in EUROS, before and after tax. The prices of orders not subject to VAT are displayed minus tax. Tricot reserves the right to change the prices of items at any time. Items will be invoiced based on the applicable prices at the time an order is confirmed. The price charged for items on sale is therefore the price indicated during the placing of the order. In this regard, the order must be paid for in full when it is placed. The prices displayed do not include transportation costs. Customs duties shall be borne by the buyer. The customer acknowledges and accepts that the prices of the items may vary between the website and shops, and that on no account may this difference in price be used to make a claim for a refund, either in whole or in part, for items purchased on the website or in shops.
