|General conditions of Sale
Article 1: Acceptance of General Conditions of Sale
Placing an order on www.Surf-Designs.com and confirming this order signifies total and complete acceptance of the present general conditions of sale.
Article 2: Conclusion of the act of sale
The sale is concluded under the terms of French law, in compliance with regulations on mail-order sales, when the purchase order has been validated. The automatic purchase order registering system is considered as being proof of the nature of the contract and its date.
After reception of the order and when payment has been validated, the order is considered to have been accepted by Surf Designs. Surf Designs will then send confirmation to the purchaser by E-mail indicating the price of sale, transport costs, the delivery time and the means of transport. Similarly, Surf Designs will inform the customer by E-mail in the event of any refusal to accept an order or should an ordered product be unavailable. It is to be remembered that, as the same products may be on sale on different sites, certain products may become unavailable. In this case, Surf Designs will reimburse the customer for all sums paid.
Article 3: The parties’ general obligations
