The business activity of the company The Other Store is the creation, design and commercial operation of merchant websites, including the sales and back-office activities, on behalf of its client’s accounts, as well as the associated activities such as the promotion of its websites and the products sold.

And

Any non-trading natural person of age, having the juridical capacity to enter into a contract, exclusively residing in the countries where deliveries are made by despetitshauts.com (hereinafter referred to as “the Customer”) making a purchase of a Product on the Site.

For the purposes hereof, it is agreed that the Customer and The Other Store will collectively be called the “Parties” and individually the “Party”.

These general conditions (hereinafter referred to as the “General Terms and Conditions for Sales”) govern without limitation the sales of Products carried out by The Other Store on behalf of despetitshauts.com from the Site.

The Other Store reserves the right to change at any given moment the present General Terms and Conditions for Sales by publishing a new version on the Site. The General Terms and Conditions for Sales applied are those that are in force on the Site on the date that the Customer places an order; understanding that any order of a Product offered on the Site binds the Customer to the General Terms and Conditions for Sales in force at the time when the order is placed.

Article 1

These General Terms and Conditions for Sales are intended to define the conditions under which the Products are marketed by The Other Store on behalf of Des Petits Hauts to the Customer. They deal with the different steps in the sales progress from the moment the Customer places the order to the delivery of the Product to the Customer.

Article 2

The products offered for sale by The Other Store on behalf of Des Petits Hauts are those listed on the Site on the day of their consultation by the Customer. Each product will be the subject of a description, which, in addition to the photograph, will include: the price, the photograph, the sizes and colours available, the composition, and the special features. Small differences may exist between the product and its photography, depending on the resolution and colour definition of the user's computer screen.

The Other Store undertakes to deliver Products that meet the applicable regulations relating to the safety and health of persons in accordance with the European provisions, and in particular the legislation on regulated chemical substances.

Article 3

The prices are indicated in euros, tax included, and delivery costs excluded; understanding that the value added tax is that which is in force on the French metropolitan territory on the day that the order is validated.

The prices applied are those given on the Site and confirmed to the Customer when the order is validated.

The delivery costs are communicated to the Customer on the order summary before the validation of the order and are expressed inclusive of all taxes. These costs are payable by the Customer and are invoiced in addition to the sale price of the Products.

The transfer of risk for loss and damage to the Products will be made after delivery and receipt of the Products by the Customer.

We reserve the right to modify our prices at any time but we undertake to apply the prices as indicated to you on the Site at the time the order was placed.

We would like to inform you that if an obviously incorrect price appears on our website (a price that is clearly too low, for example), and for whatever reason (IT bug, human error, technical error etc.), your order will be cancelled, even if it has been initially validated by us. We will inform you of this as soon as possible. You will then be able, if you wish, to place your order again at the correct price.

ARTICLE 4 • ORDER AND PAYMENT OF THE PRODUCTS

• 4.1 Placing an order
The Customer completes his order by completing the following 5 steps:
Step 1: the Customer selects the chosen Products and adds them to the shopping basket after having selected the desired size and colour.

The basket at the top right of the screen shows the Customer that it has taken into account his selection by indicating the number of Products it contains.

Step 2: the Customer may check the contents of his basket by clicking on “order” to have access to the summary of his order. The Customer may then change his order (Product, size, quantity).

The total amount of the order, taxes included, is shown in the summary, distinguishing on the one hand the price due for the Products, and on the other hand the delivery costs.

Step 3: once the order has been checked and, if necessary, changed, the Customer validates his basket in order to finalise his order by clicking again on “order”.

If the Customer has a promotion code, reserved for best Customers, he must enter it in the space provided in order to take advantage of this promotion.

Step 4: input by the Customer of delivery and billing details.

Apart from the date of birth, address and delivery information, it is necessary that all the fields are filled in for the finalisation of the order; understanding that unless the Customer gives different instructions, the billing address will automatically be the same as the delivery address.

If the Customer has previously ordered on the Site, then he has a Customer account. If this is the case, he may identify himself using only his email address and password.

The Customer then checks all the information and clicks on “validate” to continue with the order.

Step 5: Input of banking details.

The Customer then accesses the screen for secure payment with the partner of The Other Store as specified in article 4.3 below.

Payment is made online by bank card only.

The Customer must enter his bank card number, the validity date, as well as the 3 visual cryptogram numbers found on the reverse side of the card, understanding that in the case of payment with an American Express card, the Customer must enter 4 numbers.

If the payment is accepted, the Customer will be redirected to an order confirmation screen on the Site.

If the payment fails, the Customer will have up to 3 attempts to re-enter his banking details. After the 3rd refusal, the Customer will be redirected to a screen on the Site indicating that payment has been refused. The Customer will then be invited to contact the customer service of The Other Store to find out the reason for the non-payment, and to find a solution to finalise the Customer’s order.

• 4.2 Confirmation of the order

As soon as the Customer’s payment is accepted, the Customer will receive an email confirming his order, and summarising all the items ordered, the billing and delivery addresses, and the delivery date.

The validation of the order by the Customer and the confirmation of the order sent to the Customer by email by The Other Store on behalf of Des Petits Hauts, following the payment being accepted, constitute the conclusion of a sales contract between the Parties and acceptance of the General Terms and Conditions for Sales.

The Customer having placed an order will be able to print his invoice by logging in to the Site, from the order tracking area provided for this purpose.

The Other Store reserves the right not to validate the order in the case of:

abnormal or abusive claims,
abnormal orders with regards to the quantities ordered,

existing dispute(s) with the Customer.

The request for authorisation to debit the card is carried out the moment that the order is validated on the Site, except if the servers are unavailable. The Other Store reserves the right to carry out a new request for authorisation in the event that the first request was not successful due to the unavailability of the servers.

The transmission of your bank details is performed by our partner: Adyen. Adyen is not registered in France.

All information exchanged to process the payment is encrypted thanks to the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) protocol. These data cannot be detected, intercepted or used by a third party. At no time does the financial data of the Customer pass through the computer system of The Other Store. Adyen verifies that the connection with the Customer’s browser is secure before sending the payment form to the banking institution that carries out the financial transaction.

As Adyen is a technical service provider, it does not deal with disputes related to orders, which are handled directly by customer service as specified above or, if need be, by the Customer’s bank.
