Conditiones generales de vente

Introduction

We are happy to welcome you to our website www.etam.com (hereinafter referred to as the “Website”).

These general sales conditions exclusively govern the sale of products offered on the Website. They are systematically made available to the customer on the Website when any order is placed.

Therefore, placing an order implies that the Customer fully accepts all of the general sales conditions without reserve, overriding any other sales conditions found in advertising or catalogues from the vendor and, in particular, the conditions applicable in Etam shops.

They cannot be held to any additional or differing conditions set forth by the Customer, unless expressly accepted by them, no matter when the condition was brought to the attention of Etam. Should Etam choose not to avail itself of any one of the present general sales conditions, this can in no way be interpreted as a waiving of that right by Etam and that right may be invoked at a later stage.

We do our utmost to ensure that the information provided on the Website is correct and up to date; we reserve the right to correct the contents of this Website at any time and without warning.

If any circumstances not provided for herein arise, they shall be governed by French laws concerning distance sales.
