The products are available for purchase through the website www.merossi.com.
Orders on the website are placed exclusively in French, Dutch or English.

The Customer must then fill in the details of his/her/its customer account or create one, select the delivery method and the payment method, and insert any promotional code or gift voucher. The Customer can then check the details of his/her/its order and, if necessary, correct any errors before placing his/her/its order.
The “confirm order” button confirms the Customer’s order, which then becomes final, meaning that a sales contract is concluded. Confirmation of receipt of the Customer’s order is sent by e-mail. Until receipt of this acceptance has been confirmed, the Customer can cancel the contract.
The products ordered are delivered following receipt of full payment of the sale price and any delivery costs.
Notwithstanding any evidence in writing or stored on another durable medium to which the Customer has access, it is agreed that the computerised records, stored in the IT systems of Procurement & Change Management, its host or its payment partner, shall constitute proof of the communications, the content of the orders and all transactions between the parties.

Article 6 - PRICE AND PAYMENT TERMS
