Please read these Terms carefully, because your use of the Site constitutes your agreement to follow and be bound by these Terms. If you do not agree to these Terms, you should not access or use the Site. Le Pointilleux reserves the right to make changes to the Site and to these Terms at any time. No material from the Site may be copied, republished, distributed, uploaded, posted or transmitted in any way, except as specifically permitted on the Site. The Site, including all its information and contents, is Le Pointilleux property or that of our suppliers or licensors and is protected by patent, trademark and/or copyright under United States and/or foreign laws. We grant you a personal, limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable license to access the Site and to use the information and services contained here. We have the right to change these rules and/or limitations at any time, in our sole discretion.
These Terms govern all contracts, supplies and other services agreed between the customer and Le Pointilleux.
Unless Le Pointilleux has indicated otherwise in writing to the customer, the customer’s own general terms and conditions shall not be accepted.
The Site may be used only for lawful purposes and is available only for your personal, noncommercial use. Such use shall be limited to viewing the Site, purchasing products, providing information to the Site, and downloading product information for your personal review. You are responsible for your own communications, including the transmission, posting, and uploading of information and are responsible for the consequences of such communications to the Site.
We control and operate the Site from the United States, and all information is processed within the United States. We do not represent that materials on the Site are appropriate or available for use in other locations.

Entering Into a Contract
A contract is created only when payment has been successfully made. Le Pointilleux shall confirm the customer’s order by e-mail. Le Pointilleux is entitled to refuse, or impose special conditions upon, a supply, subject to giving reasons. If Le Pointilleux is unable to clearly establish the customer’s permanent or temporary address, an order cannot be accepted.
Order processes that for whatever reason have been technically or otherwise disrupted before the payment instructions have been completed are incomplete, even if the customer has received an order confirmation. Such an order will in principle therefore not be delivered. Le Pointilleux shall endeavor, however, to contact the customer to complete the payment instructions so that delivery can be made.
Prices and Costs
The contract price is the current price at the moment when an order is placed with the web store.
The prices quoted in the web store are exclusive of postage and administration costs.
Le Pointilleux is not bound by the terms of its offer in the event that there is any printing, typesetting, or programming fault on its website.
Le Pointilleux shall act with the greatest possible care in processing orders for articles.
Articles shall be delivered to the address given by the customer to Le Pointilleux, provided, that such address must be in the United States.
Le Pointilleux shall dispatch accepted orders as quickly as possible in the order in which they are received.
The delivery term indicated on the web store is approximate only and there is no right to compensation if actual delivery takes longer.
We reserve the right to place limits on purchases and we do not authorize the purchase of commercial quantities of our merchandise.
The customer is responsible for all applicable sales taxes.
Right to Return Articles
The customer is entitled to return any article to Le Pointilleux within ten (10) days of its delivery, without need to give any reason. This right also extends to articles that have been reduced in price. This has the effect of cancelling the purchase of that article and the customer will be refunded the amount already paid to Le Pointilleux for the said article. Please note that we will not refund the shipping cost for the returned articles.
No refund will be made in respect of articles returned to Le Pointilleux after the said ten day period.
Articles must be returned in accordance with the instructions set out on the Return Policy of this website.
Articles being returned must be in the condition generally accepted for normal use for approval of the articles, such as trying on articles in conventional shops. If a customer wishes to exercise such right to return an article, the article must be returned to Le Pointilleux together with everything originally sent with it, in its original state and packaging, in accordance with the clear and reasonable instructions given by Le Pointilleux.
Le Pointilleux is entitled to refuse to accept a returned article or to send it back to the customer if the article appears to have been used, no longer carries the original labels, and/or reveals damage and/or modifications caused by the customer, or if the customer does not comply with the instructions for returning the article given by Le Pointilleux.
Error in Delivery
If Le Pointilleux delivers an article different from the one ordered, or if the article is damaged or defective, the customer must notify Le Pointilleux of this as soon as possible. Le Pointilleux shall reimburse the purchase price plus postage charge.
If a customer wishes to exchange or return an article, it must follow the instructions specified on the Return Policy of this website.
Other queries, comments or complaints relating to an order, payment or delivery should be sent in writing to the following e-mail address: email@example.com
The e-mail message must contain the customer’s name, e-mail address corresponding with that in Le Pointilleux’s records, the order number included in the order confirmation, and the article number.
An order will not be accepted by Le Pointilleux from anyone under the age of 18.
The customer may pay either by debit or credit card. At the present time, Le Pointilleux gift vouchers cannot be used towards payment.
All payments must be made in accordance with the instructions given on the pages of the web store.
