2.1 Description of the Products

The Customer may select one or more products from among the different categories presented on the Site (the “Products”).


PATOU may, at any time, change the range of Products offered for sale on its Site, depending, in particular, on supplier-related constraints, without this however having an effect on the Orders in progress.

 

Although efforts are made to ensure that the hue, color or brightness of the Products, photos of which are displayed on the Site, are faithful to the original Products, variations may occur, particularly due to the technical limitations of the color renderings of a computer device.

IIf you have any questions regarding the Products and their use, any additional questions or advice requests, you may contact the PATOU team of advisers using the “Contact Us” section of the Site or by sending an email at the following address: information@patou.fr.

2.2 Availability

The Product offerings presented on the Site are valid within the limits of available inventory. PATOU reserves the right to refuse some Orders.


Information about availability of the Products is given to the Customer when they place their Order and, exceptionally, errors may occur.


While we may confirm Orders by email, the receipt of an email order confirmation does not constitute our acceptance of an Order or our confirmation of an offer to sell a Product. Should the Products be totally or partially unavailable after placing the Order, the Customer will be notified by e-mail as soon as possible of the unavailability of the Product and of the total or partial cancellation of their Order.


In this case, the Customer will be reimbursed for the price of the unavailable ordered Product promptly and, at the latest, within 30 days after the Customer’s payment.

 

2.3 Price of the Products

The price of each Product is shown in U.S. dollars including all taxes and duties, except state taxes. When applicable, USA state taxes will be added on top of the retail price after you enter your shipping address.

 

2.4 Placing an Order and Payment

Before validating their Order, by clicking on “Confirm Order”, the Customer always has the option to check the details of their draft Order and correct any mistakes.


To validate their Order, the Customer must check the box opposite the message “By checking the following box, I acknowledge that I have read and accepted the Terms and Conditions of Sale”. They must then choose one of the proposed payment methods shown on the same page.

 

Once this step is validated, the Order will be confirmed to the Customer by email.

The Order may be paid for by PayPal, AMEX, Discover or credit card (cards of the Visa and Mastercard networks). The Customer agrees and understands that they will be subject to the terms and conditions and privacy policy of any third party payment site such as PayPal. The Customer’s bank card is debited when the Order is accepted. If a Product that is ordered is unavailable, it will not be charged or debited.

 

Once payment has occurred PATOU will provide the Customer with a copy of their Order and payment confirmation.  It is the Customer’s responsibility to register and print their order and payment confirmation if they wish to retain the details of their transaction.

 

The Customer will be notified of dispatch of their Order by email.

 

IMPORTANT:

 

Please note that purchases made on the Site are reserved for non-professional, individual customers for their own use (or for gift purposes); PATOU therefore sells its Products only in quantities corresponding to the usual average needs of a household. You may not purchase any item from this Site for resale by you or any other person. PATOU reserves the right to refuse or cancel any Order for which the number of Products (for a single order or several orders combined) does not correspond to the usual average use of a household, any Order which may indicate that an economic activity is carried out by the Customer in connection with the Products ordered or more generally, any abnormal Orders within the meaning of the applicable case law.


PATOU reserves the right to suspend or cancel fulfilment of an Order and/or delivery, regardless of its nature and level of fulfilment, in the event of no or partial payment of any sum due by the Customer, in the event of a payment incident, or in the event of fraud or attempted fraud relating to the use of the PATOU Site. If your credit card has already been charged for the purchase and your order is cancelled before shipment, we will issue a credit to your credit card account.

DISPUTE RESOLUTION AND ARBITRATION; CLASS ACTION WAIVER

Please read this carefully. It affects your rights.

Most Customer concerns can be resolved quickly and to a Customer’s satisfaction by contacting PATOU at information@patou.fr or the “Contact Us” section of the Site.This Provision facilitates the prompt and efficient resolution of any disputes that may arise between Customer and PATOU.  Arbitration is a form of private dispute resolution in which persons with a dispute waive their rights to file a lawsuit, to proceed in court and to a jury trial, and instead submit their disputes to a neutral third person (or arbitrator) for a binding decision.  Customer has the right to opt-out of this Provision (as explained below), which means Customer would retain its right to litigate its disputes in a court, either before a judge or jury.

Please read this Provision carefully.  It provides that all Disputes between Customer and PATOU shall be resolved by binding arbitration.  Arbitration replaces the right to go to court.  In the absence of this arbitration provision, Customer may otherwise have a right or opportunity to bring claims in a court, before a judge or jury, and/or to participate in or be represented in a case filed in court by others (including, but not limited to, class actions).  Except as otherwise provided, accepting these T&C constitutes a waiver of Customer’s right to litigate claims and all opportunity to be heard by a judge or jury.  There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited.  The arbitrator must follow these T&C and can award the same damages and relief as a court (including attorney’s fees).

For the purpose of this Provision, “PATOU” means PATOU and its parents, subsidiary, and affiliate companies, and each of their respective officers, directors, employees, and agents.  The term “Dispute” means any dispute, claim, or controversy between Customer and PATOU regarding any aspect of your relationship with PATOU, whether based in contract, statute, regulation, ordinance, tort (including, but not limited to, fraud, misrepresentation, fraudulent inducement, or negligence), or any other legal or equitable theory, and includes the validity, enforceability or scope of this Provision (with the exception of the enforceability of the Class Action Waiver clause below).  “Dispute” is to be given the broadest possible meaning that will be enforced, and shall include any claims against other parties relating to services or products provided or billed to you (such as PATOU’s licensors, suppliers, dealers or third-party vendors) whenever you also assert claims against us in the same proceeding.

THE PARTIES EACH AGREE THAT, EXCEPT AS PROVIDED BELOW, ANY AND ALL DISPUTES, AS DEFINED ABOVE, WHETHER PRESENTLY IN EXISTENCE OR BASED ON ACTS OR OMISSIONS IN THE PAST OR IN THE FUTURE, WILL BE RESOLVED EXCLUSIVELY AND FINALLY BY BINDING ARBITRATION RATHER THAN IN COURT IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS PROVISION.

Pre-Arbitration Claim Resolution

For all Disputes, whether pursued in court or arbitration, Customer must first give PATOU an opportunity to resolve the Dispute.  Customer must commence this process by mailing written notification to PATOU, at at 24-32 rue Jean Goujon, 75008 Paris, France.  That written notification must include (1) Customer’s name, (2) Customer’s address, (3) a written description of Customer’s Claim, and (4) a description of the specific relief Customer seeks.  If PATOU does not resolve the Dispute within 45 days after it receives your written notification, Customer may pursue its Dispute in arbitration.  You may pursue your Dispute in a court only under the circumstances described below.

Exclusions from Arbitration/Right to Opt Out

Notwithstanding the above, Customer or PATOU may choose to pursue a Dispute in court and not by arbitration if (a) the Dispute qualifies, it may be initiated in small claims court; or (b) CUSTOMER OPTS-OUT OF THESE ARBITRATION PROCEDURES WITHIN 30 DAYS FROM THE DATE THAT CUSTOMER FIRST CONSENT TO THESE T&C (the “Opt-Out Deadline”).  Customer may opt out of this Provision by mailing written notification to PATOU, at 24-32 rue Jean Goujon, 75008 Paris, France.  Customer’s written notification must include (1) Customer’s name, (2) Customer’s address, and (3) a clear statement that Customer does not wish to resolve disputes with PATOU through arbitration.  Customer’s decision to opt-out of this Arbitration Provision will have no adverse effect on Customer’s relationship with PATOU.  Any opt-out request received after the Opt-Out Deadline will not be valid and Customer must pursue your Dispute in arbitration or small claims court.

Arbitration Procedures

If this Provision applies and the Dispute is not resolved as provided above (Pre-Arbitration Claim Resolution) either Customer or PATOU may initiate arbitration proceedings.  The American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), www.adr.org, or JAMS, www.jamsadr.com, will arbitrate all Disputes, and the arbitration will be conducted before a single arbitrator.  The arbitration shall be commenced as an individual arbitration, and shall in no event be commenced as a class arbitration.  All issues shall be for the arbitrator to decide, including the scope of this Provision.

For arbitration before AAA, for Disputes of less than $75,000, the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes will apply; for Disputes involving $75,000 or more, the AAA’s Commercial Arbitration Rules will apply.  In either instance, the AAA’s Optional Rules For Emergency Measures Of Protection shall apply.  The AAA rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879.  For arbitration before JAMS, the JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules & Procedures and the JAMS Recommended Arbitration Discovery Protocols For Domestic, Commercial Cases will apply.  The JAMS rules are available at www.jamsadr.com or by calling 1-800-352-5267.  This Provision governs in the event it conflicts with the applicable arbitration rules.  Under no circumstances will class action procedures or rules apply to the arbitration.

Because the Website and these T&C concern interstate commerce, the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”) governs the arbitrability of all Disputes.  However, the arbitrator will apply applicable substantive law consistent with the FAA and the applicable statute of limitations or condition precedent to suit.

Arbitration Award – The arbitrator may award on an individual basis any relief that would be available pursuant to applicable law, and will not have the power to award relief to, against or for the benefit of any person who is not a party to the proceeding.  The arbitrator will make any award in writing but need not provide a statement of reasons unless requested by a party.  Such award will be final and binding on the parties, except for any right of appeal provided by the FAA, and may be entered in any court having jurisdiction over the parties for purposes of enforcement.

Location of Arbitration – Customer or PATOU may initiate arbitration in either New York, NY or the federal judicial district that includes Customer’s billing address.  In the event that Customer selects the federal judicial district that includes Customer’s billing address, PATOU may transfer the arbitration to New York, NY in the event that it agrees to pay any additional fees or costs Customer incurs as a result of the transfer, as determined by the arbitrator.

Payment of Arbitration Fees and Costs – PATOU will pay all arbitration filing fees and arbitrator’s costs and expenses upon Customer’s written request given prior to the commencement of the arbitration.  You are responsible for all additional fees and costs that you incur in the arbitration, including, but not limited to, attorneys or expert witnesses.  Fees and costs may be awarded as provided pursuant to applicable law.  In addition to any rights to recover fees and costs under applicable law, if Customer provides notice and negotiate in good faith with PATOU as provided in the section above titled “Pre-Arbitration Claim Resolution” and the arbitrator concludes that Customer is the prevailing party in the arbitration, Customer will be entitled to recover reasonable attorney’s fees and costs as determined by the arbitrator.

Class Action Waiver

Except as otherwise provided in this Provision, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a class or representative proceeding or claims (such as a class action, consolidated action or private attorney general action) unless both Customer and PATOU specifically agree to do so following initiation of the arbitration.  If you choose to pursue your Dispute in court by opting out of the Arbitration Provision, as specified above, this Class Action Waiver will not apply to Customer.  Neither Customer, nor any other user of the Website can be a class representative, class member, or otherwise participate in a class, consolidated, or representative proceeding without having complied with the opt-out requirements above.

Jury Waiver

Customer understands and agrees that Customer and PATOU are each waiving the right to a jury trial or a trial before a judge in a public court.  In the absence of this Provision, Customer and PATOU might otherwise have had a right or opportunity to bring Disputes in a court, before a judge or jury, and/or to participate or be represented in a case filed in court by others (including class actions).  Except as otherwise provided below, those rights are waived.  Other rights that Customer would have if Customer went to court, such as the right to appeal and to certain types of discovery, may be more limited or may also be waived.

Severability

If any clause within this Provision (other than the Class Action Waiver clause above) is found to be illegal or unenforceable, that clause will be severed from this Provision, and the remainder of this Provision will be given full force and effect.  If the Class Action Waiver clause is found to be illegal or unenforceable, this entire Provision will be unenforceable and the Dispute will be decided by a court.

Continuation

This Provision shall survive the termination of Customer’s service with PATOU or its affiliates.  Notwithstanding any provision in these T&C to the contrary, we agree that if PATOU makes any change to this Provision (other than a change to the Notice Address), Customer may reject any such change and require PATOU to adhere to the language in this Provision if a dispute between the Parties arises.
