Alongside the Christofle Boutiques and its distribution network, Christofle wanted to offer its customers a system for the online sale of a selection of its products, via its e-commerce website accessible in both French and English on the website www.christofle.com (hereafter the “Website”).

Consequently, the customer declares that he has read these Terms and Conditions of Sale before placing his order. In this respect, for every order placed on the Website, the customer must confirm his acceptance of the Terms and Conditions of Sale by checking the box “I agree with the Terms and Conditions of Sale”. This validation at the time of ordering therefore constitutes acceptance, without restriction or reservation, of these Terms and Conditions of Sale and waiver of the right to invoke any other terms and conditions not expressly agreed between Christofle and the customer.

In accordance with the provisions of articles 1369-1 and 1369-4 of the French Civil Code, these Terms and Conditions of Sale may be saved on a computer and/or printed by the customer.

- e-mail address, surname, first name, address, telephone number, date of birth;
- password;
- delivery address and billing address. 

In order to be able to buy a product on his first order, the customer shall be required to open a customer account and complete an order form setting out certain compulsory fields so that his selection may be processed by Christofle. Subsequently, and for any new order, the customer shall identify himself via his e-mail address (user ID) and password, the confidentiality of which he shall be responsible for protecting, by clicking on the “IdentificationConfirm” icon.

In the event of prolonged inactivity when logged on to the Website (sixty minutes), it is possible that the selection of Christofle products chosen by the customer and added to “My Bagsket” before this inactivity will no longer be guaranteed. The customer shall then be invited to repeat his selection of Christofle products from the moment he logged onto the Website.
