Article 1. Application of General Terms of Sale

These terms and conditions apply to the sale of products by SARL DUMONT, DORLAND & CLAUZEL ordered from their online boutique (www.vignes-secretes.com) or by telephone. They are automatically accessible to the purchaser on the website's homepage. Just click on "General Terms of Sale" to consult the terms and conditions applicable to your order, before starting the ordering process. Consequently, the act of placing the order implies that the purchaser accepts these terms and conditions fully and unconditionally, to the exclusion of any other documents, such as leaflets and catalogues issued by the seller, which are purely indicative. The fact that the seller does not cite one of these conditions at a given time may not be interpreted as a waiver of the right to apply it later. In the absence of a particular specification added to the actual terms and conditions agreed by the parties in writing, all orders are subject to these general terms and conditions regardless of any clauses in the purchaser's documents. The purchaser acknowledges having read and accepted these terms and conditions of sale before placing an order. Confirming an order constitutes acceptance of the General Terms of Sale. These terms are subject to modification, so the applicable conditions are those currently displayed on our website on the date the order is placed.



Article 2.a Ordering and payment

Orders are only confirmed when the full price has been paid by the purchaser. Payment is accepted by cheque, bank transfer, Paypal, or bank card. Payment is made in full when the client confirms the order on the website. An invoice may be sent by email, or by post to the invoice address, on the client's request. Wines remain the property of SARL DUMONT, DORLAND & CLAUZEL until payment in full of the invoice, as stipulated in law n°80 336 of 1st May 1980 on retention of ownership. However, liability is transferred to the purchaser on delivery, as the transfer of possession entails transfer of the related risks. All our offers are subject to availability, provided that the item has not been sold in the meantime, and do not constitute a firm commitment. If a purchased product is out of stock, SARL DUMONT, DORLAND & CLAUZEL will contact you within 48 hours to agree to a change in your order or full or partial reimbursement (at the client's convenience). In view of the rare or speculative character of certain products, restrictions on quantities may apply. In that case, the available quantity is limited by household (same last name, address, email address, account or bank card holder). SARL DUMONT, DORLAND & CLAUZEL therefore reserve the right to refuse an order in case of doubt concerning the existence of a previous order for the product.



Article 2.b Payment methods

Delivery charges are invoiced depending on the destination and the number and quantity of products ordered. The total amount due, indicated by SARL DUMONT, DORLAND & CLAUZEL in the order confirmation, is the final price to be paid, including all taxes (French VAT and all other applicable taxes): this price includes the price of the products, handling, packaging, and storage costs, administrative charges, and delivery.

SARL DUMONT, DORLAND & CLAUZEL accept the order and launch shipment on receipt of payment and approval by our order checking department. The items ordered are delivered to the purchaser's home or any other address indicated when the order was placed. Information given by the purchaser during ordering implies the following commitments: In case of erroneous or incomplete information in the recipient's details, the vendor shall not be held liable if it is impossible to deliver the product. If goods are returned due to an incomplete address, the purchaser will be offered two alternatives: - reshipment of the goods after payment of the delivery costs - reimbursement of the cost of the order, following deduction of the delivery costs. Orders are delivered in one shipment, to a single location.



Article 5. Intra-community deliveries



All orders placed via our website, www.vignes-secretes.com, and delivered to a country in the European Union are subject to the application of French law and taxes. Consequently, a purchaser ordering products for delivery in an EU country authorises SARL DUMONT, DORLAND & CLAUZEL to organise collection and shipment of the goods on his/her behalf with the carrier of their choice. In application of French law, all shipments to EU countries are restricted to 90 litres (equivalent to 120 x 0.75L bottles) for still wines and 60 litres (equivalent to 80 x 0.75L bottles) for sparkling wines, with a maximum of 120 bottles for mixed orders, without exceeding the limit of 60 litres of sparkling wine. By accepting our terms of sale when placing an order, the purchaser acknowledges that s/he is aware of these provisions and accepts them in full. If an order exceeds these maximum quantities, SARL DUMONT, DORLAND & CLAUZEL will propose prices compliant with the law and taxes of the exporting country. For details of these terms and conditions, please contact us at contact@vignes-secretes.com.



Article 6. Verification



If your order is rejected by our order checking department, SARL DUMONT, DORLAND & CLAUZEL have the right to require that the purchaser produce proof of identity and address (as well as a K BIS or company registry certificate if the purchaser is a legal entity). If the purchaser refuses or the documents are non-compliant, SARL DUMONT, DORLAND & CLAUZEL may require payment by bank transfer in return for cancellation of the bank transaction or destruction of the cheque issued by the purchaser. If the documents are not accepted, the client may request cancellation of the order.



Article 7.a. Delivery dates



SARL DUMONT, DORLAND & CLAUZEL agree to make every effort to deliver the products ordered as soon as possible, as indicated on the website and product details. (Delivery times vary according to product availability, the shipping arrangements chosen, and the destination country). If the purchaser orders several products with different delivery dates, the latest delivery date will apply to the entire order. The delivery is made on the scheduled date by handing the product directly to the specified recipient, or, in case of absence, by delivering a collection notice. If the delivery cannot be made on that date, the consumer will be informed as soon as possible and may cancel the order and have the sale rescinded. The client may then request other replacement products or the full reimbursement of the order. The delivery dates are calculated from confirmation of the order, i.e. acceptance of the payment, the bank authorisation (online by bank card), and the approval of the order checking department. Details of our delivery dates are directly available on our website: www.vignes-secretes.com. The cases considered as force majeure, releasing the vendors from their obligation to deliver, are war, riots, and fire.



Article 7.b. Transport and liability



Shipments in transit are always at the recipient's risk. The purchaser is, therefore, responsible for checking the contents of the package on delivery and issuing reservations, if applicable, in the following way: on the delivery slip supplied by the carrier or by calling their customer service immediately, in the presence of the delivery person. And, in all cases, by informing SARL DUMONT, DORLAND & CLAUZEL by REGISTERED LETTER to their correspondence address within 2 days after acceptance of the delivery AND by emailing: contact@vignes-secretes.com.



Article 8. Out of stock



If a product ordered is permanently out of stock, SARL DUMONT, DORLAND & CLAUZEL will inform you as soon as possible and offer the purchaser several alternatives: - Replacing it with the next vintage or a product of equivalent or higher quality under the same pricing conditions. - Reimbursing the price of unavailable products or the entire order, at the client's discretion. In case of a temporary unavailability, the purchaser will be asked if s/he is prepared to wait until a specified date when new stock is expected. If the client does not wish to accept this delay, s/he may request full or partial cancellation of the order.



Article 9. Return option



In application of article L.121-20 of the Consumption Code, the purchaser has a period of 14 full days from delivery of the order to inform the vendor that s/he wishes to return the delivery by emailing contact@vignes-secretes.com. The after-sales service will then ask you to return the entire order, for exchange or reimbursement, at the purchaser's discretion, in its original packaging and in good condition with the original invoice and a letter containing the following information: LAST NAME, FIRST NAME
