3.1 Products description
The Products offered for sale by GUERLAIN are those presented on the Website on the date of connection of the Customer, within the limits of available stocks. GUERLAIN reserves the right to withdraw Products from sale at any time.
GUERLAIN puts the utmost care in the presentation of the Products on the Website. The Products will conform to the statements or advertisements regarding them made by Guerlain and to the description made of them in the Contracts. However, pictures illustrating the Products shall only be for information and are not contractual.
Indeed, while GUERLAIN makes its best efforts to ensure that the color of the Products – whose photos are displayed on the Website – are faithful to the original, variations may occur (including slight differences in colors and proportions), particularly given the technical limitations of color renderings of computer equipment. In particular, when using the “Personalize” option, the presentation of the Products comprising the personalization options selected by the Customer under a 3D mode shall not be contractual as is it likely to slightly differ from what the final Product will be. Consequently, GUERLAIN shall not be responsible if the Product varies from those images. The packaging of Products may vary from that shown in images on the Website.
For any question or concerns regarding the order and appropriate use of Products, the Customer may contact GUERLAIN Client Service via the contact form available on the Website.
3.2 Products availability
The Products displayed on the Website are offered for sale within the limit of available stocks. GUERLAIN does not guarantee the availability of the Products. In the event of the unavailability of one or several Product(s) after an order is completed, GUERLAIN will inform the Customer at the earliest by email or telephone of the unavailability of the Product(s) and the partial or full cancellation of his/her order.
Should the order be totally cancelled for unavailability, the Customer’s order shall be automatically cancelled, and his/her account will not be charged.
Should the order be partially cancelled for unavailability:
- - The Customer’s order will be validated, and his/her bank account will be charged only with the amount of the Products actually sent,
- - The Customer will be informed at the earliest by email or telephone of the unavailability of the Product(s) concerned,
- - The Customer will receive the available Products.
3.3 Product personalisation service
GUERLAIN offers a personalization service for some Products (more detailed in article 6.2.1 below) which notably includes the possibility for the Customer to engrave a bottle of perfume. The engraving content must not be defamatory, abusive, illicit or discriminatory. In such event, GUERLAIN reserves the right to cancel the corresponding order.
The Customer also has the possibility to fill the chosen perfume bottle with the scent of his/her choice. Once the bottle is empty, the Customer has the possibility to come back to a GUERLAIN Parfumeur Boutique located in his/her country (if any in his/her country) - which are the only GUERLAIN Boutique that offers this service to have the bottle refilled with the same fragrance. Please note that this service does not include the possibility to return the empty bottle to have it filled and sent back. The Customer must physically visit a GUERLAIN Parfumeur Boutique to have the bottle refilled. GUERLAIN reserves the right to double-check the perfume which was initially contained in the bottle to ensure that no interconnection occurs between different scents. The Customer must also ensure GUERLAIN that no other product of any substance has been placed in the bottle. It is the Customer’s responsibility to provide GUERLAIN with correct information. GUERLAIN cannot be held responsible if the refill is based on misleading information.
All Products prices are firm. Prices are given in Canadian dollars. The price in force is the one indicated for each Product on the Website. These prices exclude all taxes applicable on the day of the order as well as any delivery costs, which will be charged additionally and will be specified to the Customer prior to the order being finalized.
Delivery costs will be indicated to the Customer before the validation of the order. The present General Terms and Conditions of Sale provide various delivery methods, which may be modified at any time by GUERLAIN.
The invoiced price is the price indicated to the Customer on the order confirmation page, which appears on screen at the order confirmation and is sent by GUERLAIN to the Customer by email.
GUERLAIN reserves the right, and the Customer accepts, to modify the price of the Products at any moment, without any further formalities than to make the changes available on the Website. These changes may not affect the orders validated by the Customer prior to the coming into force of these changes, subject to the availability of the Products ordered.
In the event of a pricing error, GUERLAIN has the right, in its sole discretion, to refuse or cancel any order for the Product in question. GUERLAIN may, in its sole discretion, either contact the Customer for instructions or cancel the order and notify him/her of the cancellation.
The Website features some Products that can be found in Boutiques. However, the Customer acknowledges and understands that the Products and prices displayed on the Website for online purchase may differ from those available in Boutiques. Boutique prices and offers may sometimes differ from online prices and offers.
The Products ordered shall remain the property of GUERLAIN until complete payment of their value, including the main value of Products, as well as any costs and taxes included in the invoice/receipt, and the applicable delivery costs.
6.1 Conditions of ordering
GUERLAIN only sells Products via the Website to Consumers. Products are solely intended for the Customer personal use, excluding any connection to his/her professional capacity.

Additionally, this restriction may be applicable to orders placed by the same account, the same credit card or method of payment, and to orders that use the same billing and/or shipping address.
In the event of an order of Products exceeding this maximum, the order shall be considered as null and void and will not be taken into account by GUERLAIN.

The Customer is offered this personalized plate by GUERLAIN. The Customer may also choose to personalize the stopper of the 100 and 200 ml l'Art & la Matière eau de parfum Bottle with an exceptional plate or a jewelry plate at the current price available on the Site.

By clicking on, the Customer proceed to payment directly on the Website through the secure server of the payment service provider Cybersource following the conditions requested (Visa, Mastercard and American Express only) – please refer to Article 8 below (Payment terms) for more information.

6.3 Final validation of the order – How is a Contract formed?
Following the validation of the payment by the Customer, a confirmation of the order will be sent by email to the Customer by GUERLAIN. The order confirmation includes the summary of the Products ordered, the price, the delivery costs and the order number. It mentions the right of cancellation and contains a link to the applicable General Terms and Conditions of Sale.
A Contract between the Parties is formed when the Customer receives the order confirmation by email detailed above from GUERLAIN.

Any order may, at the sole discretion of GUERLAIN, come with a maximum of three (3) free samples within the limit of available stocks.
6.7 Loyalty program
If he agrees, the Customer who has opened an online customer account may join the “GUERLAIN&VOUS” loyalty program.
Membership of the “GUERLAIN&VOUS” program can be obtained on the Site. It is only possible to subscribe to the loyalty program once per person (same surname(s), first name(s), and address).
Thus, during any order placed on the Site and by connecting to his customer account, the Customer can accumulate and use his loyalty points under the conditions provided for in this article. This program allows, depending on the purchases made by the Customer on the Site, to accumulate loyalty points giving the right to benefits.
The Customer can consult the number of loyalty points obtained when purchasing Products at any time on the Site.
For each purchase of Products or care performed, 1 loyalty point is registered in the customer account for one Canadian dollar ($1) of purchase, regardless of the Product concerned. Each loyalty point is valid for 12 months after it is obtained (the "Validity Period"). If the loyalty points are not used during the Validity Period, they will be lost 12 months after the date of the qualifying purchase. Depending on the loyalty points threshold reached, the Customer may be given by GUERLAIN, when making a new purchase on the Site, benefits listed on the official Guerlain & You page (up to a limit of two identical gifts per year and within the limits of available stocks). Benefits are subject to change during the year.
Benefits are obtained only on the Site as part of an order for Products, regardless of the amount of the order (loyalty points cannot be used on the Site in the absence of prior purchase); in this case, the benefit(s) from which the Customer may benefit under the loyalty program will be sent to him at the same time as the Products ordered (with the exception of services such as Treatments and certain Products listed on the official Guerlain & Vous page at the address provided when ordering.
The loyalty points which are acquired during an order on the Site cannot be used during said order or said purchase. Indeed, following an online order made on the Site, the Customer's loyalty points balance will be updated with the number of loyalty points associated with this order. The Customer will then be able to recover any benefits during a future online purchase.
In the event of the return of Products under the right of withdrawal mentioned in Article 11 of these General Terms and Conditions of Sale, Guerlain will withdraw the loyalty points corresponding to the amount reimbursed to the Customer. Guerlain also reserves the right to close the customer account and consequently to withdraw the benefit of the loyalty program from the Customer in the event of abusive behavior by the Customer.
To the extent permitted by law, GUERLAIN reserves the right to modify the conditions of the “GUERLAIN&VOUS” loyalty program at any time.
The fact that a Customer asks to delete his customer account will automatically result in his unsubscribing from the loyalty program. Similarly, the fact that the Customer requests to no longer benefit from the loyalty program will result in the automatic deletion of his customer account. Once the account is deleted, all the points accumulated will be lost and the Customer will no longer be able to benefit from the points accumulated on the date of the deletion of his account.
It is specified that in the event of inappropriate behavior by the Customer towards GUERLAIN staff or members of the Customer Relations Department (violent, defamatory, obscene, shocking, indecent, indelicate remarks, etc.), GUERLAIN reserves the right to change the contact of the Customer, to report this Customer to the Customer Relations Department, to no longer respond to this Customer by blocking his number and/or excluding him from his customer database and withdrawing the benefit of the loyalty program.

When relying on the legal warranty, the Customer shall:
- - Benefit from a one (1) year period from the Product delivery to submit a claim based on such warranty;
- - Have the possibility to choose between repair or replacement of the Product, unless that choice results in a clearly disproportionate cost in relation to the other possibility, considering the value of the Product or the importance of the defect.

- - Not be required to provide with proof of a non-conformity during the twenty-four (24) months following the Product delivery.

GUERLAIN shall assume no liability if the Customer uses the Product(s) without complying with their instructions for use.
Before placing an order, the Customer declares his/her full legal capacity entitling him/her to transact according to the present General Terms and Conditions of Sale. GUERLAIN shall assume no liability as to the confirmation of the Customers or visitors’ legal capacity. As a result, if a person who does not have legal capacity orders Products on the Website, his/her legal guardians shall assume responsibility of such order and, in particular, honor its payment.
GUERLAIN makes no warranties that the Website will be available on an uninterrupted, timely, secure or error-free basis. Especially, GUERLAIN shall not be held liable for:
- - Interruptions, malfunctions, or delays recorded on the Website due to technical failures, because of third parties or any circumstances beyond GUERLAIN’s reasonable control.
- - The impossibility or temporary inability for the Customer to access the Website, due to circumstances which are beyond GUERLAIN’s control, such as computer breakdown, interruptions of the telephone network, the Internet, or the failure of the Customer's reception equipment for the Internet.
GUERLAIN shall not be held liable for (i) the loss or alteration of or fraudulent access to the Customer’s personal data, (ii) the accidental transmission of viruses or other disruptive components resulting from the access to the Internet or email communications, nor (iii) for any aggravation of an injury that the Customer could have avoided.
Without limiting any other provisions of the present General Terms and Conditions of Sale, GUERLAIN shall only accept liability for injury caused by a fault which is duly proven and attributable to GUERLAIN. Liability is strictly limited to direct damages. GUERLAIN reserves the right to suspend access to the Website at any time.
For any information, complaints or question relating to the terms and conditions of sale on the Website or to the Products, Customers shall contact GUERLAIN's Client Service via the contact form available on the Website, when appropriate by using their order number.
GUERLAIN shall not be held liable for improper performance or partial or total non-performance of the obligations hereunder, if this is due to the Customer, or any unforeseeable and unsurmountable act of a third party, or a case of force majeure (also known as “superior force”) as defined by applicable laws and caselaw. These events shall justify the interruption and/or extinction of GUERLAIN’s obligations, without the Customer being entitled to any compensation or damages.
Any and all intellectual property rights attached to the Products presented for sale on the Website are and shall remain the exclusive property of GUERLAIN. All rights are exclusively reserved. Therefore, no one is authorized to reproduce, exploit, disseminate or use in any way, even partially, said intellectual property rights, unless GUERLAIN’s prior written consent has been obtained. GUERLAIN's trademarks and logos are registered trademarks. Consequently, any reproduction is an infringement.
The present General Terms and Conditions of Sale, the order summary communicated to the Customer and the order confirmation email constitute the entire agreement between the Parties. These are the sole binding and enforceable contractual documents between the Parties, excluding any other document or photograph of the Products which shall only be considered as indicative.
GUERLAIN may assign any Contract or any of its rights or obligations under any Contract, by giving the Customer notice. A Customer may not assign a Contract to any third party without the prior written consent of GUERLAIN. Any Contract benefits and binds the parties and their respective heirs, successors, and permitted assigns.
It is the express wish of the parties that these General Terms and Conditions of Sale and all related documents be drawn up in English.
The present General Terms and Conditions of Sale and the contractual relationship between GUERLAIN and the Customer shall be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of the province of New Brunswick and the laws of Canada applicable therein unless the applicable laws of the Customer’s province of residence require that the laws of such province govern, in which case, the laws of such province are to govern.
The exclusive jurisdiction for any claim, action or dispute with GUERLAIN or relating in any way to the Customer’s use of the Websites or a purchase made on the Websites will be the courts of the province of New Brunswick unless required otherwise by applicable laws of the Customer’s province of residence.
Even if GUERLAIN delays in enforcing the Contract, it can still enforce it later. If GUERLAIN does not insist immediately that the Customer does anything he/she is required to do under these General Terms and Conditions of Sale, or if GUERLAIN delay in taking steps against the Customer in respect of he/she breaking the Contract, that will not mean that the Customer does not have to do those things and it will not prevent GUERLAIN taking steps against the Customer at a later date.
