We are not willing to enter into dispute resolution proceedings before the consumer arbitration board.

§ 2 Contracts

1. The languages available for contracts are: French and English.

2. The presentation of products on our Website does not constitute an offer by parisfashionvintagestore.com for a purchase contract.

3. By submitting the order form provided on our Website to us you are placing a binding offer for a purchase contract with us. You submit an offer by entering all required information during the ordering process and posting the order form to us by using the button "complete purchase". Before you submit your offer you will be able to view the details input by you and correct any mistakes in the information provided.

4. On receipt of your order we will send you an e-mail confirming receipt of your order and stating the details of your order (order confirmation). Please note that our order confirmation does not constitute a declaration of acceptance of your contractual offer but serves for information purposes only.

§ 3 Cancellation policy advisory

CANCELLATION POLICY

You may repeal your contract of purchase within 7 business days without having to state reasons.

The allocated cancellation timeframe is 7 business days, effective the day that you or an assigned third party, who may not be the carrier/courier, took said commodities into their possession.

To administer your right to cancel your order, you have to inform us, Paris Fashion Vintage, Boulevard de Port-Royal, 75005 Paris, France, info@parisfashionvintagestore.com, by sending us an explicit declaration stating that you are repealing your contract of purchase (for example: by sending us a letter in the mail, or an email). You may use the cancellation template provided on our website; however, it is not mandatory to use this template.

It will suffice to send us your notification of repeal within the given cancellation timeframe in order for the 7-day cancellation timeframe to be granted.

CONSEQUENCES

If you repeal your contract of purchase, we are obligated to refund all payments that we have received from you, including shipping costs (excluding additional shipping costs that result from choosing a different shipping option, other than the regular standard shipping option that we offer) immediately and within 7 business days at most, effective the day that we receive your repeal.

The payment method which was used to make the transaction will also be used for the reimbursement unless we have explicitly agreed to something else. You will not be charged any fees for reimbursement.

We reserve the right to withhold the reimbursement until we have received the returned items or until we have received your notification that you have returned the items, whichever comes first.

The items have to be sent back to us immediately and no later than seven business days after the date on which you have notified us of the cancellation of this contract. All return shipments are at our expense.

You are only required to compensate us for any loss in value if the loss in value can be traced back to unnecessary handling, which goes beyond the admissible proofing of the condition of the item, its characteristics, and functionality.

REASONS TO TERMINATE THE CANCELLATION POLICY

The cancellation policy is only in place if the product bought hasn't been customized, worn, or altered. The personalization of garments renders the cancellation policy inactive.​

Cancellation template
