PRODUCTS: The purpose of ATELIER PAULIN is to sell its own jewellery and other fashion accessories subject to stock availability. These products are those listed for sale on the date of the consultation by the user. When the product is unavailable, it is displayed as "unavailable" on the site.

PRICES OF PRODUCTS: The prices are indicated in Euros, inclusive of tax. They take into account the French VAT applicable on the day of the order. If the VAT rate should change, the changes are reflected in the price of the articles. ATELIER PAULIN reserves the right to change its prices at any time. However, these prices cannot be modified once the order has been confirmed. The prices shown do not take into account the shipping expenses which will be added to the total order value and will be specified to the customer during the final confirmation of the order. Deliveries to mainland France shall be fulfilled within an average period of 4 weeks from the receipt of the order by ATELIER PAULIN, notwithstanding any fortuitous event or force majeure event which would delay the delivery beyond ATELIER PAULIN's control and best efforts.

A summary of the order will then appear with the following information: the type, quantity and price of the products selected by the user, as well as the method of payment chosen, the user's contact details and parcel delivery address. Each order shall be deemed acceptance of the price and description of products available for sale. The user may then enter the word or the first name, which will be used to personalise the bracelet, in the "Notes and instructions" field.

ENTIRE AGREEMENT: These terms and conditions of sale and the summary of the order sent to the client constitute the entire agreement between the parties.
DELIVERY: The products are shipped with a supporting invoice, to the delivery address specified by the customer when placing his order. All orders confirmed before 1pm are shipped within 48hrs.
The stated delivery times provide an indication of the lead times from the day after the order is confirmed by the customer and correspond to the time needed to process and deliver the products. Under no circumstances are these lead times binding upon the company. However, you will be sent an e-mail in the event of an unusual delay. Consequently, ATELIER PAULIN shall not be held liable in the event of an excessively long lead time owing to the postal services or means of transport, and in the case of the loss of the products ordered or strike action. The transport risks shall be borne by the customer, who shall formulate a reasoned claim with the postal services or with the carrier, within three working days of the delivery.
This being said, despite the best efforts of ATELIER PAULIN in preparing the parcels, a product may be missing from the parcel. Similarly, after transporting the parcel, one of the products may be defective. That's why, on reception of his order, the customer must check the compliance of the products received. ATELIER PAULIN's customer service must be notified by recorded post (sent to ATELIER PAULIN 9 avenue de Villiers 75017 Paris) of any anomaly with the delivery (missing or broken product or damaged parcel) on the day that the parcel is received and no later than the first working day following reception.
Any claim submitted after this deadline will be rejected and ATELIER PAULIN will be released from any liability. ATELIER PAULIN may ask the customer to return the defective product. If the aforementioned conditions are met, ATELIER PAULIN will then exchange or refund the defective product(s), or re-dispatch the missing product (provided that the buyer's request is well-founded).
DELIVERY LEAD TIMES AND RATES: The specified lead times provide an indication of the delivery lead times of our carriers in working days added to the production time. All prices are in Euros. The tracked Colissimo is delivered by La Poste within 2 to 8 working days (for mainland France). It is delivered to the delivery address indicated on your order slip.
In the event of your absence, the postman will leave a delivery notice specifying the instructions for collecting your parcel (place and time). The official lead times are generally 15 days. You can track your parcel on the www.coliposte.net site.

Damaged parcel: Do not accept a damaged parcel (carton bearing visible signs of opening and/or damage): it must be refused. Indeed, the parcels that leave ATELIER PAULIN's warehouses are always in perfect condition, and must be delivered to you in the same condition. If a damaged parcel has been delivered to your letterbox or is received by your caretaker, the parcel shall be deemed "accepted as is". If no reservations are made, we will not be able to consider any claims for missing products or proceed with any compensation payments.
