These General Conditions of Sale exclusively control the offer, dispatch and acceptance of purchase orders of products on “www.celine-marie.com” between users of the above-mentioned sites and the Vendor.

Moreover, the Vendor reserves the right to not carry out any orders coming from any parties other than the “consumer” or any orders that do not conform to their commercial policies.
CONCLUSION OF THE CONTRACT BETWEEN CLIENT AND VENDOR
Consumers who intend to place a purchase order of one or more products on “www.celine-marie.com” must fill in the electronic order form and send it telematically to the Vendor following the relative instructions, in order to complete the purchase contract.
The order form contains a summary of the basic characteristics of each product ordered and the relative price (including all taxes applicable), of the accepted methods of payment and the delivery methods of the purchased products, of dispatch and delivery costs, of the conditions for the right to return and the terms for return of the purchased products.
The prices of the products may be subject to revision. The consumer is obliged to check the final price of each product before sending the relative order form. The contract is then concluded when the Vendor receives the order form, and has checked that the data relating to the order is correct. Once the contract has been concluded, the Vendor will process the purchase order.
The order form will be archived at the Vendor’s data base for the period of time necessary for carrying out the orders and in any case within the terms provided for by law.
The Vendor reserves the right to ignore any purchase orders that are incomplete or incorrect, whose solvability is not sufficiently guaranteed or if the products are not available. In these cases, the Vendor will send the consumer an email informing him that the contract is not concluded and that the Vendor has not carried out the purchase order, explaining the reasons. Should the products presented on “www.celine-marie.com” no longer be available or on sale at the moment of the most recent access to the site or when the order form is sent, it is down to the Vendor to communicate said unavailability of the products ordered to the consumer, in a timely fashion and in any case within ten (10) days from the day after the order was sent to the Vendor. Should the order have been sent and payment made, the Vendor will undertake to refund the relative amount, without obligation for any kind of compensation.
Once the contract is concluded, the Vendor will send the consumer a receipt for the purchase order via email, including the information already contained in the order form (the information relating to the product’s basic characteristics and the detailed price, payment methods, right to return and delivery costs).
Only authentic products are offered for sale on “www.celine-marie.com”.

Furthermore, said information will not be used by the Vendor except for completing the procedures relating to the purchase for which they have been given and to issue the relative refund should the products be returned – following the execution of the right to return – or should it be necessary to prevent or inform the police of fraud on “www.celine-marie.com”. The amount for the purchase of the products and the delivery fees, as indicated in the order form, will be debited at the moment of purchase.
