Applicable Law / Disputes.
Any order placed on the E-commerce website lip.fr is addressed to MGH, the official distributor of the Lip brand, and implies the unconditional acceptance of these general sales conditions. It is the responsibility of each customer, whether professional or individual, to review the general sales conditions of MGH before placing an order.
For orders placed by customers residing in metropolitan France, Corsica, and overseas departments and territories (D.O.M.-T.O.M.), as well as for international sales, French law shall apply. In the case of international sales, for any matters not covered by French law and these general sales conditions, the parties agree to refer to the provisions of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods of April 11, 1980.
The products offered for sale comply with French regulations. If applicable, it is the responsibility of foreign customers to verify with local authorities the possibilities of using the product they intend to order; MGH shall not be held liable for any violation of regulations in a foreign country where the product is delivered.
The parties will attempt to amicably resolve any disputes or disputes related to the formation or execution of the sale. In the absence of an agreement, only the courts at the seat of MGH shall have jurisdiction.
Presentation of Products.
The characteristics of the products offered for sale are presented on the website lip.mgh-watches.com (hereinafter referred to as "the site"). The photographs are not contractual and MGH shall not be held responsible for any errors that may occur.
MGH reserves the right to make any modifications it deems necessary to its products at any time, without any obligation to modify previously delivered or ordered products. MGH also reserves the right to modify the models in the website descriptions without prior notice.
Validity and Duration of Offers.
Our products are offered for sale until they are sold out. We take particular care to remove any product from our online site in the event of its production being discontinued. Sales generated with a promotion that should not have been applied due to a technical issue cannot be honored if the exclusion of said promotion on a product, range, or minimum/maximum price was clearly expressed.
Price of Products
The prices of the products on the website are in Euros (with the possibility of converting to Dollars), all taxes included, and excluding any possible delivery charges. Any delivery charges are the responsibility of the customer and are billed in addition to the selling price of the products and possibly services. The delivery charges may vary depending on the number and type of products ordered. The customer will always be informed of the delivery charges related to their order before the final registration of the order, and the payment will be requested from the customer for the total amount of the purchase. Thus, the choice and validation of a payment method by the customer implies that the customer agrees to pay the associated delivery charges. Therefore, the delivery charges cannot be a valid reason for challenging the order after its final registration.
The customer validates their order when they activate the "VALIDATE" link on the "Secure Payment by Credit Card" page. By doing so, the customer implicitly accepts the order process and these general sales conditions.
MGH confirms the order by email; this confirmation includes all the elements of the order. The data recorded by MGH constitutes proof of the nature, content, and date of the order.
Payment can be made by credit card, check, or PayPal. The online payment section of the website www.lip.fr is secured with SSL encryption for all payment information. Under no circumstances are these payment details managed or stored on our servers or the website www.lip.fr.
Order processing is only effective on business days (from Monday to Friday). Shipments are handled by CHRONOPOST or COLISSIMO services of La Poste for mainland France and CHRONOPOST for overseas departments and territories (DOM-TOM) and international orders.
Delivery times cannot give rise to damages, withholding, or cancellation of current orders.
