ONLINE PAYMENT - TERMS OF SALE
Payment by bank card
Payments by bank card are in full upon placement of order and in US dollars only.
Payments by bank card are protected and in compliance with International inter-bank regulations.
This solution enables the buyer to make payments in total security.
When paying for your order on-line, you are automatically transferred to the bank's server through a secure SSL-mode transaction (session encrypted using a 128-bit key in compliance with the Government authorization). The number of the card is thus encrypted between the browser and the Secured Payment server.
Information about your Bank Card is recorded only in the databases of the Bank and not in those of Maisons du Monde. In no way whatsoever do we receive, record or keep any of your bank details.
After confirmation of your payment, you are automatically transferred back to our site. The personal data recorded in the cookie is then deleted.
Orders are only acknowledged after payment has been confirmed. No discount or late payment penalties are applicable.

There may be differences between the Products shipped and those shown on the Website or in the catalogue, primarily for handcrafted Products, each of which is unique, and Products for which technical or technological modifications have been made. You may not cancel your order or refuse delivery due to such differences, provided that they do not affect the essential features or quality of the Products. However, we cannot guarantee that the colour you see on the Website or in the catalogues matches the product colour, as the display of the colour depends in part upon the browser and monitor you are using. Maisons du Monde cannot be held liable for inaccuracies in the photographs on the Website.
By confirming your order, you are placing a firm order. The order becomes firm for Maisons du Monde when the payment is validated and the order is recorded.
Maisons du Monde sets a minimum order amount. This minimum amount is only used to cover the costs of each order and it enables us to continue offering such a wealth of decorative products.

By ordering on the Maisons du Monde website, the customer agrees to provide the required details or proof of identity. If a satisfactory response is not given within the specified delay, Maisons du Monde reserves the right to cancel the order in question.
