3.1 Navigation Inside The Website
The User may familiarise himself with the different products offered for sale by PrivateFloor on the website. The User may browse freely through the website's different pages, without being committed, in any way, to place an order.
3.2 Registration And Password
Registration is necessary and obligatory before placing an order. The User must correctly complete the information requested and required on the “My Account” page, as well as in the sub-pages of the section “My Information”. In particular, the User will be asked for information necessary for identification: first name and surname, postal address, email and a password.
PrivateFloor guarantees the confidentiality of the data transmitted after the password has been entered. The User is entirely responsible for the use of his password. He ensures its preservation and its confidentiality. In the case of loss of password, the User should contact PrivateFloor with minimum delay in order to receive a new password.
If the User forgets his password, he can obtain a new one by clicking on the “password forgotten” button that appears on the home page. An email will then be sent to the User, prompting him to create a new password. When he creates his account, the User may authorise PrivateFloor to send him invitations to sales and any other useful information from the PrivateFloor team by email.
3.3 Recording An Order
The User places his order through an Internet connection which allows him to browse the website. To be accepted, the order must contain all the useful information necessary for its handling. In addition, each and every order placed indicates acceptance of the General Terms of Sale, the price, and the description of the available products.
It is not possible to place an order from a country that is not included on PrivateFloor list of authorised destination countries. A User who wishes to place an order selects the different products of his choice and demonstrates his intention by clicking on the "Add to cart" button.
At any given moment the User can:
Refer to a list of the chosen items by clicking on the “My basket” button.
Continue choosing Products by clicking on the “Continue shopping” button.
Complete the selection and place the order by clicking on the “Buy” button.
To order the products placed in the basket, the User must identify himself, either by entering his email address and password, if he already has an account with PrivateFloor, or by filling out a registration form if he does not. The User is informed and accepts that entering his two identifiers (email address and password) is proof of his identity and confirms his consent.
Once the User is identified, he must validate the delivery address and a recapitulation of the order will appear on the screen, specifying: the nature, the quantity and the price of the product(s) selected by the User, as well as the postal charges, the total amount of the order, the User’s contact details and the delivery address.
3.4 Final Validation Of An Order
Once the User has familiarised himself with the details of his order and has ensured that all the necessary details are correct, he can click on the “Pay for the order” button to confirm the order.
In the case of payment by bank debit or credit card, the User must give certain information concerning the bank card he wishes to use:
It should be noted that with instant payment by bank card, which is the payment method offered by PrivateFloor on our website, the User makes his payment via the PrivateFloor website using the EPT system (Electronic Payment Terminal). The PrivateFloor website is secured by S.S.L. (Secure Socket Layer) to protect all data pertaining to payment methods as efficiently as possible. Then, the User’s bank data is relayed to the bank, which is also secured by S.S.L. In this way, the User’s bank details never go through the PrivateFloor computer system. As a result of this, PrivateFloor does not retain any responsibility.
The User can record his banking information so that he no longer needs to enter it each time he places an order. As soon as he confirms his order by bank card the order is recorded and becomes irrevocable. The User becomes the Buyer. The purchase order is recorded in PrivateFloor’s computing records (these are retained on a reliable, permanent support) and becomes proof of the contractual relationship between the two Parties.
Once payment by bank card (supplying the card number, expiry date and cryptogram) , a summary of the Buyer’s order will be sent by email as soon as the purchase order has been recorded. This will be sent to the address supplied when the order was placed. This confirmation will cover all the details of the elements that constitute the contract between the two Parties and will also indicate an estimated dispatch date.
PrivateFloor recommends that clients record a copy of the order confirmation email, or print it out. However, the documents recorded in PrivateFloor’s computing records will legally serve as proof. A summary of the order will also be posted to the client’s account.
