Any person wishing to make a purchase on the online sales site www.galerie-maisondauphine.com, is hereinafter referred to as the “Internet Customer” or “Customer”.
ARTICLE 1: PURPOSE AND ACCEPTANCE OF THE GENERAL TERMS OF SALE
1.1 SCOPE OF APPLICATION
The present general sales conditions, hereinafter referred to as “GSC”, aim to define the contractual relationship between the SARL LA GALERIE MAISON DAUPHINE, hereinafter referred to as “LA GALERIE MAISON DAUPHINE”, and the Internet Client, as well as the conditions applicable to any purchase made through the merchant website by an individual or a legal entity with legal capacity and acting personally as a consumer.
The Internet Customer, a natural person, declares that he/she is of legal age and is not under guardianship or curatorship.
Any order of item(s) placed on the site implies the consultation and express acceptance of these general terms and conditions of sale, without this acceptance being conditional on a handwritten signature by the Internet Customer.
In accordance with the provisions of articles 1366 and following of the Civil Code, completed by the Decree n° 2017-1416 of 28 September 2017 on electronic signature, it is reminded that the validation of the “order form” or “basket” as specified in article 3 hereafter, constitutes an electronic signature which has, between LA GALERIE MAISON DAUPHINE and the Internet Client, the same value as a handwritten signature.
LA GALERIE MAISON DAUPHINE reserves the right to modify the present general sales conditions at any time, without prior notice, it being understood that such modifications will be inapplicable to orders previously accepted and confirmed by LA GALERIE MAISON DAUPHINE. The present conditions apply to the exclusion of any other document.
The Terms of sales are not applicable to professionals. Any natural or legal person, public or private, who acts for purposes within the framework of his commercial, industrial, craft, liberal or agricultural activity, including when he acts in the name of or on behalf of another professional, is considered a professional.
ARTICLE 2: THE OFFER
In accordance with article L. 111-1 of the French Consumer Code, you can, prior to placing your order, take note of the characteristics of the work(s) you wish to order on the site. However, although the photographs are as accurate as possible, they cannot ensure a perfect similarity with the works offered (particularly with regard to colours) and do not fall within the contractual field.
Therefore, LA GALERIE MAISON DAUPHINE cannot be held responsible in case of error.

Our prices are indicated in Euros, all taxes included, excluding delivery costs and customs taxes and taking into account the French VAT in force.
