General sales conditions
We are happy to welcome you to our website www.etam.com (hereinafter referred to as the “Website”).
These general terms and conditions of sale exclusively govern the sale of products displayed on the Site. They are systematically accessible on the Site by the Customer when registering the order.
Consequently, by placing an order, the Customer fully and unreservedly agrees to these general terms and conditions of sale to the exclusion of all other terms and conditions present in the prospectuses and catalogues issued by ETAM and particularly those in force in its stores.
Therefore, any contrary condition laid down by the Customer will be, unless expressly accepted, non-binding on ETAM whenever it is brought to its knowledge. The fact that ETAM does not avail itself at a given moment of any one of these general terms and conditions of sale cannot be interpreted as being equal to a subsequent waiver to avail itself of any one of the said conditions.
ETAM endeavours to ensure to its best ability that the information circulated on this Site is accurate and up to date, and reserves the right to correct the content at any time and without notice. If a condition should be at fault, it will be considered as being governed by French laws and practices in force with regard to distance selling.

ARTICLE 1. PURPOSE
The purpose of these terms and conditions is, on the one hand, to inform any potential purchaser of the conditions and methods under which the company ETAM LINGERIE SA, (hereinafter referred to as "ETAM") as a vendor sells and delivers ETAM articles ordered on www.int.etam.com; and on the other hand to define the rights and obligations of the Parties for the sale of products by ETAM to all non-trader individuals, who are adults and have full legal capacity (hereinafter referred to as the "Customer"). They apply without restriction or reservation to all of the sales of products displayed by ETAM on the Site.
ARTICLE 2. PRODUCTS
Features of the products
The products offered for sale on line are those displayed on the Site. They are described and reproduced by ETAM on the Site with the greatest possible accuracy. The information given on the product sheet states the main features of the products (colors, description, composition, size), and their price inclusive of VAT. However, ETAM draws the attention of the Customer to the fact that the photographs cannot be a perfect depiction of the product offered for sale, particularly with regard to colors.
Differences can notably result from the color quality of the photographs, the difficulty of showing on the screen the rendering of the materials or, without however being exhaustive, the technical adaptation. These differences cannot be interpreted as conformity faults and result in the cancellation of the sale. If there is an obvious error or insignificant omission between the product's features and its representation and/or its description, ETAM cannot be held liable.
The products and prices are valid as long as they feature on the Site, within the limit of available stocks.
Availability of the products
The products are offered for sale within the limit of available stocks. Only products featured on the Site when they are viewed by the Customer are offered for sale. Therefore, during the placing of an order, the Customer is informed of the availability of the product selected. If a product is unavailable, ETAM agrees to inform the Customer as soon as possible by email and state, where applicable, the estimated waiting period for delivery of the product. The Customer can confirm the order or request a refund of the product on the basis of the billed price.
- The preparation and delivery costs will be reimbursed to the Customer if the latter confirms the cancellation of the entire order.
- The preparation and delivery costs will be charged to the Customer if the latter confirms the delivery of one or more other available products that are part of the same order.
ARTICLE 3. PRICES
Prices are stated in local currency depending on the country of residence of the Customer, VAT included but excluding preparation and delivery costs, as well as local taxes payable in the specific country of residence of the Customer which shall be borne exclusively by the latter. The stated prices include the VAT applicable on the day of the order. If the rate of VAT changes, it will be automatically added to the price of the products. The Customer is informed of the fixed amount of participation in the preparation and delivery costs on the note summarizing the order, and this, before validation of the latter.
Any order entails the acceptance of the prices and description of the products available for sale. Any dispute on this point will lead to a possible "refund" such as set out below.
At any time, ETAM reserves the right to modify the prices and descriptions of the products and particularly in the case of an increase in charges, rate of taxes, and/or in the event of an obvious typographical or entry error. However, the products will be billed on the basis of the prices in force at the time of registering the order, except for an obvious error. In fact, despite the vigilance of ETAM, it is possible price errors will occur on the Site and this, whatever the reason for it (computer bug, manual error, technical error, etc.). If orders are placed at erroneous or obviously derisory (very low) prices, they will be cancelled, even if they have been validated by ETAM's departments. ETAM will then inform each of its Customers concerned as soon as possible, in order that they can, if they want to, place the order again at the corrected and accurate price.
