ARTICLE 3  –  ORDER  

The Customer has the possibility to place her/his order online, from the online catalogue, for any Product, to the extent that stock is available. The Customer will be informed by email if he has ordered a Product that is unavailable.  In order for the order to be confirmed, the Customer must accept, by ticking in the indicated place, the Terms and Conditions.  She/He must also choose the address and mode of delivery, and finally validate the method of payment.  The sale will be confirmed once the Customer has received an email from MAHA SAS confirming the acceptance of the order and after receipt by MAHA SAS of the full price.  By ordering a Product, the Customer is deemed to have accepted the prices and descriptions of the Products available for sale.  Any dispute on this point will be made in the context of a possible exchange and the guarantees mentioned below.  In certain cases, including non-payment, partial payment or payment incident, or in case of fraud or attempted fraud relating to the use of the Site, incorrect address or other problem with the Customer’s account, MAHA SAS reserves the right to withhold the Customer’s order until such a problem is solved.   

For any question relating to following-up of an order, the Customer must send an e-mail to the following address: contact@impressionoriginale.com.
