These Conditions of Sale are applicable to any order placed through the Piaget Boutique. If you refuse to accept these Conditions of Sale, you will not be able to order any Piaget products from the Piaget Boutique. Sales concluded through Piaget authorized retailers are not subject to these Conditions of Sale.
2. PURCHASING ELIGIBILITY
Only individuals (and not legal entities) who (a) have reached the age of eighteen (18), (b) have legal capacity to enter into contracts and (c) have a shipping address in the country or countries listed in Clause 12 may order products through the Piaget Boutique. If you are under the age of eighteen (18) or otherwise cannot lawfully enter into a contract, you must have your parent or guardian place an order on your behalf and thereby assent to these Conditions of Sale.
By placing an order through the Piaget Boutique, you represent and warrant that you are a bona fide end-user customer and will not deliver, sell or otherwise distribute Piaget products or purchase Piaget products for commercial purposes or any other commercial benefit.
3. PRODUCT AVAILABILITY; QUANTITY
Quantity limits may apply in relation to certain products. Piaget further reserves the right to refuse at any moment in time, without prior notice, orders exceeding a certain number of authorized products.
In order to place an order, the Piaget Sales Associate will discuss the process with you over the telephone or by e-mail.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary provided for herein, Piaget reserves the right to refuse, cancel and terminate orders at any moment in time. For example, Piaget may refuse, terminate or cancel your order if there is an ongoing dispute concerning payment of a prior order or if Piaget suspects, in its sole discretion, that you have engaged in fraudulent or grey market activities or have otherwise violated these Conditions of Sale or the policies incorporated herein by reference.
5. PRICES, TAX AND SHIPPING COSTS
All prices quoted by the Piaget Boutique are in Hong Kong Dollars.
Piaget reserves the right to modify prices and delivery costs at any time without prior notice. The price of a product and delivery costs quoted by the Piaget Boutique, at the time Piaget provides you with a Confirmation of Order, will be honored by Piaget.
Actual shipping costs and applicable taxes, if any, will be reflected on your payment page before you are asked to confirm and place your order and will also be reflected in the Confirmation of Order. Sales and use taxes will vary based on the location to which products are being shipped. Delivery costs and estimated sales and use taxes are not stated on the product pages but will be added to the product price, if applicable, after you have chosen your delivery location and options.
Please note that changes to applicable law between the date your order is placed and the date you are sent a Confirmation of Order may result in changes to the sales tax associated with your purchase. If the resulting change is an increase in the sales tax you are charged, we will contact you and ask that you reconfirm your purchase.
We accept the methods of payment offered through the Piaget Boutique.
We = offer you the ability to prepay for your products, either as a full prepayment or a partial prepayment. Where we offer partial prepayment as an advance payment method, the partial prepayment will be taken immediately following the placement of your order. Prepayments (in whole or in part) are non-refundable. However, prepayments shall not impact any of your legal rights under these Conditions of Sale (including for example any right of withdrawal and/or refund). If we cannot meet our shipping and/or delivery obligations set out below, we will notify you via e-mail and we will refund the pre-payment without undue delay.
When paying by payment link, you will need to enter your payment details on the appropriate form. In the case of an order placed by telephone, you will need to communicate to the Piaget Boutique your credit/debit card number and your three or four digit security code that is printed on the back or the front of your card (CVV2/CVC2/CID).
All credit/debit card holders are subject to validation checks and authorization by the card issuer. If the issuer of your payment card refuses to authorize payment to Piaget, you will need to contact your card issuer directly to solve this problem.
In order to process your order, we may perform security checks on your credit card. The full amount of your purchase will be blocked on your credit card until your order is shipped to the shipping address you have provided to Piaget, at which point in time you will be sent a Confirmation of Order and your credit card will be charged the applicable purchase price. By submitting an offer to purchase Piaget products through the Piaget Boutique, you expressly authorize Piaget to perform security checks, where Piaget deems necessary, to transmit or to obtain information (including any updated information) about you to or from third parties from time to time, including but not limited to your credit-card number, to authenticate your identity, to validate your credit card, to obtain an initial credit card authorization and to authorize individual purchase transactions.
