The information or personal details that you provide us with shall be processed pursuant to the Privacy Statement. By using this website, you are consenting to the processing of such information and details and you represent that the whole information or details you have provided us with are true and accurate
4. USE OF OUR WEBSITE
By using this website and/or by placing any order through it, you undertake:
1. To use the website exclusively to make legitimate enquiries or orders.
2. Not to make any speculative, false or fraudulent orders. If we are reasonably of the opinion that such an order has been made, we shall be entitled to cancel the order and inform the relevant authorities.
3. To provide correct and accurate e-mail, postal and/or other contact details to us and
acknowledge that we may use these details to contact you if this should prove necessary (see our Privacy Statement).
If you do not give us all information that we need, we may not be able to complete your order.
By placing an order through the website, you warrant that you are at least 18 years old and are legally capable of entering into binding contracts.
5. SERVICE AVAILABILITY
The items we offer on this website are only available in the United Kingdom and may incur additional charges if purchased outside of the UK.
6. HOW THE CONTRACT IS FORMED
The information set out in the Terms and the detail contained on this website does not constitute an offer for sale but rather an invitation to treat. No contract in respect of any products shall exist between you and us until your order has been accepted by us. If we do not accept your offer and funds have already been deducted from your account, these will be fully refunded.
To place an order, you will be required to follow the shopping process online and press the
"Finalise Order " button to submit the order. After this, you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your order (the "Order Confirmation"). Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted, as your order constitutes your offer to us to buy one or more products from us. All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail that confirms that the product has been dispatched (the "Shipment Confirmation”). The contract for the purchase of a product between us (“Contract”) will only be formed when we send you the Shipment Confirmation. The Contract will relate only to those products whose dispatch we have confirmed in the Shipment Confirmation. We will not be bound to supply any other products which may have been part of your order until the dispatch of such products has been confirmed in a separate Shipment Confirmation.
7. AVAILABILITY OF PRODUCTS
All orders for products are subject to availability and in this regard, in the event of supply difficulties or because products are no longer in stock, we reserve the right to give you information about substitute products of an equal or higher quality and value which you can order. If you do not wish to order such substitute products, we will refund any monies that you might have paid.
8. REFUSAL OF ORDER
We reserve the right to withdraw any products from this website at any time and/or remove or edit any materials or content on this website. Whilst we will make our best efforts to always process all the orders, there may be exceptional circumstances which mean that we may need to refuse to process an order after we have sent you an Order Confirmation, which we reserve the right to do at any time, at our sole discretion.
We will not be liable to you or any other third party by reason of our withdrawing any product from this website, whether it has been sold or not, removing or editing any materials or contents on this website or for refusing to process or accept an order after we have sent you the Order Confirmation.
When a physical delivery of the Product has been selected and subject to the provisions of Clause 7 above on the availability, and unless there are any exceptional circumstances, we will endeavour to fulfil your order for product(s) listed in the Shipment Confirmation by the delivery date set out in the Shipment Confirmation or, if no estimated delivery date is specified, within 15 days of the date of the Shipment confirmation.
However, delays may occur on account of the following reasons:
1. Customisation of products;
2. Specialised items;
3. Unforeseen circumstances; or
4. Delivery area.
If for some reason we are unable to deliver on this date, we will inform you of this situation and give you the option to continue with the purchase with a new delivery date or alternatively cancelling the order and reimbursing you with the full amount paid. Please remember that we do not deliver on Saturdays or Sundays except if “express delivery” is paid for additionally.
For the purposes of these Terms, the "delivery" shall be deemed to have taken place or that the order has been delivered at the time that receipt of the order is signed for at the agreed delivery address.
10. UNABLE TO DELIVER
If we are unable to deliver the goods after two attempts, we will try to find a safe secure place to leave your parcel. We will leave a note explaining where your parcel is and how you can rearrange delivery. If you are not going to be at the delivery location at the time agreed, please contact us to rearrange delivery for another mutually convenient day.
Upon lapse of 15 days of the moment when your order is ready for delivery, without such order having been delivered on grounds not attributable to us, we shall understand that you wish to cancel the Contract and it shall be treated as terminated. As a result of the termination of the
Contract, we will refund the price paid for such products as soon as possible and anyway within 30 days of the date on which we shall deem the Contract terminated. In such cases, we shall be authorised to pass on you any delivery costs and costs incurred in the termination of the Contract.
11. RISK AND TITLE
The products will be at your risk from the time of delivery.
Ownership of the products will only pass to you when we receive full payment of all sums due in respect of the products, including delivery charges, or upon delivery (as defined in clause 9 above), whichever is the later.
12. PRICE AND PAYMENT
The price of each product shall be the one quoted from time to time on our website, except where there is an apparent error. Whilst we take care to ensure that all prices quoted on our website are accurate, errors may occur. If we discover an error in the price of any product(s) you have ordered, we will inform you as soon as possible and give you the option of reconfirming the order at the correct price or cancelling it. If we are unable to contact you, the order will be treated as cancelled and if you have already paid for the product(s) you will receive a full refund.
We are under no obligation to sell the product(s) to you at the incorrect (lower) price (even after we have sent you a Shipment Confirmation) if the pricing error is an obvious typographical or arithmetical inaccuracy and could have reasonably been recognised by you as such.
The prices displayed on our website exclude delivery costs, which will be added to the total amount due as set out in our Delivery Costs Guide.
The prices displayed also exclude any relevant import or customs duties associated with international delivery outside of the UK and EU which are liable for payment by the buyer. Please be aware that FRENCH CULTURE AND LANGUAGE LTD does not have any control on any duties, customs and taxes levied by the country your order is being shipped to. We cannot advise you what the cost will be as these charges can vary according to country. Since these fees are not computed nor applied to orders by FRENCH CULTURE AND LANGUAGE LTD, please contact your local customs office to find out more information if you are unsure of the charges.
Prices may change at any time but (except as provided above) any potential change will not affect any order regarding which an Order Confirmation has been sent.

Your next step will be to go through the checkout process and make payment. To do this:
1. Click the "Shopping basket" button at the top of the page.
2. Click on the "See basket" button.

You can pay using Visa, Mastercard and American Express. To minimise the risk of unauthorised access, we encrypt your card data. Once we receive your order, we will request pre-authorisation on your card to ensure there are sufficient funds available to complete the transaction. The charge to your card will be made the moment your order leaves our warehouse.
If you click on "Finalise Order " you are confirming that the card belongs to you or that you are the legitimate holder of the gift card or the credit voucher card.
Cards are subject to validation checks and authorisation by your card issuer. If we do not receive the required authorisation, we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery and we will not be able to form any Contract with you.

20. EVENTS OUTSIDE OUR CONTROL
We will not be liable or responsible for any failure to perform, or delay in performance of any of our obligations under a Contract that is caused by events outside our reasonable control (“Force Majeure Event”).

declared or not) or threat or preparation for war.

Majeure Event continues, and we will have an extension of time for performance for the duration of that period. We will use our reasonable endeavours to bring the Force Majeure Event to a close or to find a solution by which our obligations under the Contract may be performed despite the Force Majeure Event.
If we fail, at any time during the term of a Contract, to insist upon strict performance of any of your obligations under the Contract or any of these Terms, or if we fail to exercise any of the rights or remedies to which we are entitled under these Terms, this shall not constitute a waiver of such rights or remedies and shall not relieve You from compliance with such obligations.
A waiver by us of any default shall not constitute a waiver of any subsequent default arising from the Contract or the Terms.
No waiver by us of any of these Terms or of any rights or remedies arising from the Contract shall be effective unless it is expressly stated to be a waiver and is communicated to you in writing in accordance with the provisions of the paragraph on Notices above.
If any of these Terms or any provisions of a Contract are determined by any competent authority to be invalid, unlawful or unenforceable to any extent, such term, condition or provision will to that extent be severed from the remaining terms, conditions and provisions which will continue to be valid to the fullest extent permitted by law.
