The order confirmation sent by Ski-Chic.com mentions the delivery location and method chosen by the Customer.

Customers are informed that they must provide all the necessary details accurately for the order to be processed and delivered correctly (access code, access details, apartment number, name of residence, etc.).

To have the package handed over in person by the delivery driver, the Customer, or a person acting on his or her behalf, must be present.

If the delivery address provided by the Customer is not valid and therefore incurs a return due to the non-reception at the indicated address, the re-dispatch fees to the new address will be payable by the Customer.

Each delivery is deemed to have been completed once the Customer is given the package, including by the carrier; this is substantiated by the double check system used by the carrier.

If the delivered item is different to the one ordered, the Customer may notify Ski-Chic.com of the error and will receive another delivery the day after at no extra cost.

The customer must pass this message on to Ski-Chic.com via email no later than 24 hours after the delivery of the damaged package.

8.6 - Return of hired clothes and/or accessories

The Customer commits to returning the hired clothes or accessories at the end of the hire period, as mentioned on the order confirmation.

The Customer will be reminded of the date of collection for the items by email.

Any delay in returning the items will incur a fifteen (15) euro fine per day delayed and per pack, as well as the weekly price of the pack, payable by the Customer to Ski-Chic.com.

By hiring clothes or accessories, the Customer expressly authorises Ski-Chic.com to charge any late fees due to his or her bank card.

On the seventh day after the end of the hire period, the Customer will be automatically sent a final notice to return the item(s) hired by Ski-Chic.com.

If the item(s) have not been returned or proof of their return has not been provided within 3 days of the final notice, the Customer expressly authorises Ski-Chic.com to charge the retail price including tax (as displayed on the Website on the day of ordering) of the product(s) not returned to his or her bank card.

 

8.7 - Use of clothes and/or accessories during the hire period.

The Customer commits to treating the item(s) hired with the greatest of care and to taking all the necessary precautions in order not to damage them.

The Customer takes physical and legal custody of the item(s) during the hire period.

The Customer is forbidden from:

- exposing the hired item(s) for a long period of time to any source that may damage them, such as dust, extreme variations in temperature, the sun’s rays or humidity.

- leaving the hired items within reach of young children, making any alterations to the items, cleaning the items or having the items cleaned.

The Customer expressly authorises Ski-Chic.com to charge the retail price including tax (as displayed on the Website on the day of ordering) of any cleaned product(s) to his or her bank card.

The Customer may only use the item(s) for his or her strictly personal use. It is therefore forbidden to lend them, to sub-hire them, to give them to a third party (even for free) and to use them for any commercial purposes.

 

8.8 - Loss, theft or damage of clothes and/or accessories during the hire period

In the event of the loss, theft or damage of the hired items, the Customer commits to informing Ski-Chic.com by email (hello@ski-chic.com) or by telephone on +33 4 84 98 01 70.

Once the loss or theft is declared, the Customer must provide a theft declaration as soon as possible. The Customer will be charged 100% of the retail price including tax (as displayed on the Website on the day of ordering) of the item lost or stolen.

In the event of damage to the hired item(s), the Customer is forbidden from trying to repair them or having them repaired.

Once the item(s) are returned, Ski-Chic.com will carry out a quality check.

Any return of an item in a different condition to that in which it was delivered is considered damage.

The Customer commits to informing Ski-Chic.com of any accidental damage before the item is returned.

Any damage noticed upon reception will be notified to the Customer through his or her customer account and by email, if it is returned via package or carrier. In the event of light damage (missing button, loose seam or eyelet, stain from normal use of the item) the Customer will not be fined. 

In the event of damage to one or several items beyond ordinary use (hole in the fabric, cigarette burn, multiple stains from drinks, food, moisture, mud or dust, rips or tears, etc.), Ski-Chic.com will charge the Customer a repair supplement, corresponding to the cost of cleaning or repairing the item, plus 20 euros (including tax) as a processing fee. 

Should there be evidence of the Customer’s attempt to repair the item, Ski-Chic.com reserves the right to charge the Customer 100% of the retail price including tax (as displayed on the Website on the day of ordering) of the item concerned.

Ski-Chic.com commits to only selling and lending original, authentic clothes and accessories. Each item comes with a system that ensures its traceability.

The Customer is therefore forbidden from damaging this traceability system, from replacing the hired item with any other item and/or from replacing it with a counterfeit. Any item returned that proves not to be the hired item will be treated by Ski-Chic.com as a case of loss or theft. If the returned item proves to be a counterfeit, Ski-Chic reserves all rights of recourse against the Customer. 

To be covered against any light or serious damage to the hired clothes and accessories, Ski-Chic.com offers the Customer the opportunity to take out extra insurance (for a total of €2.50 inc. tax per pack per day). Taking out this extra insurance ( contract n 4673) requires the prior acceptance of the group insurance contract, the main terms of which will be communicated to the Customer before the order is confirmed. The insurance terms and conditions are available from the following address: hello@ski-chic.com

 

8.9 - Right of withdrawal

In accordance with the provisions of articles I. 121-21 onwards of the French Consumer Code, the Customer may exercise the right of withdrawal. To exercise this right, the Customer must send Ski-Chic.com a withdrawal form, based on the model provided in the Appendix, specifying Customer name and contact details, via email, with no need to justify the withdrawal, within fourteen (14) days from the placing of the order. The Customer expressly recognises, under article L221-28 of the French Consumer Code, that if he or she does not write any objection on the delivery note for the order from Ski-Chic.com, the service will be considered as having been provided and the Customer will no longer have recourse to the right of withdrawal. Should the Customer exercise the right of withdrawal, Ski-Chic.com will refund the full order price to the Customer, including any delivery fees paid.

 

8.10 - Refund methods in the event of cancellation

- if a Customer cancels the order before delivery, Ski-Chic shall keep part of the price paid as a fee, under the following terms:

- if the order is cancelled more than 14 days before delivery, a sum equivalent to 5% of the order price shall be payable;

- if the order is cancelled between 8 and 14 days before delivery, a sum equivalent to 50% of the order price shall be payable;

- if the order is cancelled less than 3 days before delivery, a sum equivalent to 100% of the order price shall be payable.

8.11 Legal guarantee against hidden defects

If, despite all the care taken by Ski-Chic.com, the product(s) delivered present a hidden defect, the Customer may exercise the legal guarantee against hidden defects, by virtue of articles 1721 and onwards of the French Civil Code, should these defects impede use of the items, even if Ski-Chic was unaware of the defects at the time of ordering. In this case, Ski-Chic shall compensate the Customer for the inconvenience caused.

9. Provitions applicable to private sales 

Ski-chi.com periodically offers access to a private sale of items at a preferential price exclusively to Members who have been Customers during the season immediately preceding the sale. The products on offer for the private sale are subject to availability and their sale takes place directly on the Website.

Ski-Chic reminds private sale buyers that these products are second hand and are therefore not subject to the same guarantees as an equivalent new product.

However, Ski-Chic commits to cleaning the products before they are put on sale and checking that they present no holes, rips or permanent stains.

Payment for products from a private sale on the Website will be made immediately and in one instalment, in accordance with the provisions of article 7. Depending on the selected delivery method, the Customer must, if applicable, pay any shipping fees. 

In accordance with the provisions of articles I. 121-21 onwards of the French Consumer Code, the Customer may exercise the right of withdrawal for products bought in a private sale. To exercise this right, the Customer must send Ski-Chic.com a withdrawal form, based on the model provided in the Appendix, specifying Customer name and contact details, via email, with no need to justify the withdrawal, within fourteen (14) days from the placing of the order. Should the Customer exercise the right of withdrawal, Ski-Chic.com will refund the full order price to the Customer, including any delivery fees paid. When exercising the right of withdrawal, the Customer must send the package containing the privately sold product back within fourteen (14) calendar days of receipt of the product to the following address: Impasse de la Ravoire, 74370 Metz Tessy. The return will be made at the Customer's expense, in the product’s original packaging, or, if necessary, any other packaging that guarantees the integrity of the product, and in perfect resale condition (undamaged, unused, not dirtied or washed by the buyer).

Once the returned product has been checked, Ski-Chic.com commits to, with the buyer's agreement, issuing a credit note of the same amount as the returned product and the delivery fees (based on the standard delivery fee) or to crediting the buyer's bank account with this amount, as soon as possible, fourteen (14) days at the latest after the day the return package is received. 

In the case of the credit note, this shall be valid for the purchase of any other service offered on the Website by Ski-Chic.com. Within the framework of the right of withdrawal, the risks and expenses relating to the return are the responsibility of the buyer.

By virtue of articles l 217-4 onwards of the French Consumer Code, Ski-Chic.com is obliged to deliver a product that complies with the description displayed on the Website. In the event of the non-compliance of the second-hand product bought in a private sale, the Customer may return it to Ski-Chic.com within six months of receipt of the product.

In this case, the Customer may request an identical replacement product, subject to availability, request a product of equivalent quality and price, subject to availability, or be refunded the price of the ordered product if a replacement is not possible.

The European Commission has implemented a dispute resolution platform designed to collect any consumer complaints following an online purchase, which are then transmitted to the competent national mediators.
