If a non-emancipated minor enters into one or more Contracts with THE PARISIAN without the signature of the legal representatives, and that THE PARISIAN is unaware of His/Her minority and His/Her incapacity to enter into contracts because of the erroneous or misleading information transmitted to Us before the conclusion of the Subscription Agreement, it is the invalidity of the signed contracts that can be invoked only by the minor or his parents.

ARTICLE 7 : EXERCISE OF THE RIGHT OF
WITHDRAWAL BY THE INDIVIDUAL CLIENT

7.1 What is the right of withdrawal ?

In accordance with articles L.221-18 et seq. of the French Consumer Code, the Individual Client having subscribed to an offer presented on the Website, has a period of fourteen (14) clear days from the date of the conclusion of the Subscription Agreement, to exercise his right of withdrawal without having to justify reasons or pay penalties. When the 14-day period expires on a Saturday, a Sunday, a non-working day or a public holiday, it shall be extended until the following first working day.

 

7.2 The required specific steps to take

The Client must send its decision to withdraw to THE PARISIAN by means of a statement free of any ambiguities before the withdrawal period has expired :

  • Either by sending the filled withdrawal form by registered letter with an acknowledgement of receipt or by email to contact@parisianluxury.com. This form was provided to the Client by THE PARISIAN in the acknowledgement email mentioned in Art. 7.4.
  • Either by sending an e-mail to contact@parisianluxury.com, expressly confirming its intention to withdraw including the following information : last name, first name, email address, address, Client number and Contract number.

 

7.3 Refund

The exercise of the right of withdrawal leads to a refund of the amount of the Subscription, which corresponds to the totality of the sums paid by the Client to THE PARISIAN. The refund shall be made by the same means of payment You used to pay for the Subscription within fourteen (14) days from the date of withdrawal.
However, if the Client has expressly requested that the performance of the service begins before the end of the withdrawal period, he must pay Us an amount corresponding to the service provided until the communication of his decision to withdraw ; this amount is proportionate to the total price of the service agreed in the contract (art.L.221-25 of the French Consumer Code).

ARTICLE 8 : PAYMENT OF THE SUBSCRIPTIONS

8.1 Payment of the Subscriptions by a Third-Party Payor

The payment of the price of the Subscription can be made not by the Beneficiary Client himself / herself, but by another person. In other words, the Client has the possibility to mandate a Third-Party Payor, who must be an adult or emancipated minor, to pay on His/Her behalf the sums owed to THE PARISIAN under the Subscription Agreement. This appointment does not, however, relieve the Client of His/Her obligation to pay in the event of default of the Third-Party Payor. In addition, the same Third-Party Payor may assume responsibility for the payment of several Subscriptions, and shall stand guarantor for the compliance with these General Terms and Conditions of Sale by the beneficiary Client(s).

 

8.2 Payment methods and invoicing cycles

The bank transfer is the only method of payment accepted by THE PARISIAN for all services ordered and in the case of subscription to “ESSENTIEL”, “PREMIUM”, “PRIVILEGE” or “CORPORATE” offers. For private and professional Clients who have subscribed to the “CHAMPS-ÉLYSÉES”, “MONTMARTRE” or “VENDÔME” offer, special conditions have been settled in article 8.2.3.

8.2.1 For private Clients having subscribed to the “ESSENTIEL”, “PREMIUM” or “PRIVILEGE” offer
The total amount of the “ESSENTIAL”, “PREMIUM” or “PRIVILEGE” Subscriptions shall each correspond to the twelve (12) monthly instalments at the rate in force in the case of a twelve (12) month Subscription, and to the six (6) months monthly payments at the rate in force in the case of a six-month Subscription, plus the amount of the month in which the Subscription Agreement was concluded between the Parties.
-> Payment in several instalments
If the Client chooses to pay the Subscription by monthly installments, the first bank transfer of an amount corresponding to four (4) monthly installments must be made upon application. This first bank transfer is one of the conditions for the validation of the Subscription Agreement by THE PARISIAN as specified in the Art. 6.4 and 6.5.

For the following months, the Subscription must be paid by bank transfer between the 1st and 5th of each month. Each transfer will correspond to 1/12th of the Subscription price if the Client has chosen a twelve-month Subscription ; to 1/6th of the Subscription price if the Client has chosen a six-month Subscription.
-> Full payment in one instalment
If the Client wants to pay the Subscription offer in one instalment by bank transfer, the Contract will come into effect only upon receipt of the entire amount of the Subscription as specified in the Art. 6.4 and 6.5.

8.2.2 For professional Clients having subscribed to the “CORPORATE” offer
The “CORPORATE” offer is an annual Subscription open only to professionals. The total amount of the “CORPORATE” offer corresponds to the twelve (12) monthly instalments at the rate in force, plus the amount of the month in which the Subscription Agreement was concluded between the Parties. The Contract will come into effect only upon receipt of the entire amount of the annual Subscription by bank transfer as specified in the Art. 6.4 and 6.5.

The total amount owed to THE PARISIAN corresponds to the 12 monthly instalments according to the current tariff, plus the amount corresponding to the month in which the Subscription Agreement was concluded between the Parties.

8.2.3 For the Clients having subscribed to the “CHAMPS-ÉLYSÉES”, “MONTMARTRE” or “VENDÔME” offers
After acceptance of the estimate, THE PARISIAN requires the payment of the total amount taxes included by bank transfer. The estimate mentions :

-> The program of activities made by THE PARISIAN for the Client for His/Her desired period ;
-> All scheduled and pre-booked services and activities ;
-> The security deposit equivalent to 50% of the amount of the program of activities, of all scheduled and pre-booked services and activities ( all taxes included ).
After that the Client accepts the estimate and that the contractual relationship between THE PARISIAN and the Client starts, there may be additional service requests on site, in France or elsewhere, which have not been foreseen or included in the initial estimate set up by THE PARISIAN. In this case, these additional services will be subject to additional billing and the corresponding invoices will have to be paid integrally by bank transfer. It is only when THE PARISIAN receives proof of bank transfer that THE PARISIAN executes the requested service.
Regarding the security deposit requested by THE PARISIAN at the time of the acceptance of the estimate, the Client shall be refunded if He/She has paid all the amounts corresponding to the additional services requested during His/Her stay.

NB :
Regardless of the Subscription offer and regardless of the service requested by the Client, the latter may request to pay the amounts due in cash. However, THE PARISIAN is free to decide whether or not to grant the Client the right to use this method of payment. In case of acceptance, a hand-delivery to THE PARISIAN is required.
If paying in cash, THE PARISIAN is not obliged to accept more than 50 coins in a single payment. It is up to the Client to make the top-up (Article L. 112-5 of the French Monetary and Financial Code) : For instance, a 20,00€ demanding payment with a 500,00€ note can therefore be refused.
The French law stipulates in Art. 3 of Decree No. 2013-417 of 21 May 2013 prohibits the sending of cash (banknotes or coins) by mail.
Finally, Decree No. 2015-741 of 24 June 2015 fixes the maximum amount of cash that THE PARISIAN can receive :
– €1,000 when the Client has his tax domicile in France or acts for the needs of a professional activity ;
– €15,000 in other cases (tax domicile abroad).

 

8.3 Payment problem issued by the Client

The Client or the Third-Party Payor must ensure the possibility of making bank transfers with the account concerned. The Client or the Third-Party Payor also warrant THE PARISIAN that He/She has all the authorizations required to use the chosen payment method and a sufficient balance on His/Her bank account when the Subscription Agreement is signed.
If any payment fails due to insufficient balance on the bank account or for any other reason preventing THE PARISIAN from obtaining the amounts owed to Us, We reserve the right to suspend the Client’s access to Our services and refuse any Service Order until He/She regularizes the situation and His/Her account with His/Her bank.
If the Client or the Third-Party Payor wishes to change the bank institution or to change the account that is used to pay THE PARISIAN, The Company must be informed as early as possible. Once the banking situation is regularised, the Client or the Third-Party Payor must provide THE PARISIAN with the new Bank Identity Statement and pay the amounts owed to The Company as quick as possible.
If the Client or the Third-Party Payor stops the bank transfers without regularization during the month and before the next requested bank transfer period ( from the 1st to the 5th of each month ), THE PARISIAN terminates automatically the Subscription Agreement under the terms and conditions stipulated in Article 10.
By regularizing your bank account prior to the next requested bank transfer period and/or by notifying THE PARISIAN of any changes to your bank account, You are charged for any amount not paid to THE PARISIAN.

ARTICLE 12 : FORMALIZATION OF AN ORDER

12.1 Estimate and acceptation of the Order

Any request for services is subject to a prior estimate submitted by THE PARISIAN to the Client for approval, and if it is accepted, the estimate is considered as a Contract between the Parties. The estimates issued by THE PARISIAN are valid for a 21-day period from the date of issuance. After this deadline, without any news from the Client having placed the Service Order, or without any confirmation of the acceptance of the Service Order by the Client, THE PARISIAN cancels automatically the Order.
The Client therefore expressly agrees that electronic documents (email, Short Message Service (SMS), recordings, messages, etc.) may serve as proof of His/Her acceptance.
The Service Order is considered as firm and final by THE PARISIAN, if the confirmation of acceptance of the Order is sent by the Client to contact@parisianluxury.com, accompanied with the unamended estimate, signed and dated with the Client’s “Good for agreement”. An estimate signed and agreed by the Client shall constitute an irrevocable commitment on His/Her part.

 

12.2 Right to withdraw

When the private Client is considered as a consumer and that the Service Order is concluded at a distance, the Client has a period of fourteen (14) clear days, starting from the confirmation or from the acceptance of the estimate, to assert His/Her right to withdraw from the Service Order. The right of withdrawal shall be exercised under the conditions described in Art. 7.

 

12.3 Performance of the Order

12.3.1 The performance conditions of the Service Order
After the acceptance of the estimate by the Client, if a deposit is requested, THE PARISIAN sends an invoice for this deposit that the Client has to pay as quickly as possible if He/She wants that THE PARISIAN performs the Service Order.
Thus, the Service Order is performed by THE PARISIAN on two conditions :
-> Upon reception of the estimate, considered as a Contract, accepted and signed accompanied with the mention “Good for agreement” ;
-> After that the deposit of 70% requested by THE PARISIAN in the estimate has been cashed.

12.3.2 Urgent Services Orders
Any urgent Service Order must be sent to the email address contact@parisianluxury.com or by means of a Short Message Service (SMS) to +33 06 70 96 85 51. When the estimated amount of the Service Order is below 100,00 euros ( excluding VAT ), We do not issue any estimate. We simply send an email to the Client stipulating that We have taken note of His/Her agreement for the performance of the urgent Service Order, and We precise in it the amount of the invoice and of the deposit ( 70% ) that the Client has to pay immediately. The payment of the deposit is worth acceptance of the estimated amount of the Service Order and shall be regarded as confirmation of the express performance request.
This email and the payment of the deposit will constitute written proof of the Client’s urgent Service Order and of the transactions that will result from them.
The non-payment of the deposit shall be regarded as renouncement of the Service Order by the Client.

 

12.4 Refusal of performance of a Service Order

THE PARISIANreserves the right not to proceed to the performance and to the provision of the Services ordered by the Client, without any damages being claimed in the following circumstances :

  • In the case where the Client places a Service Order with THE PARISIAN without paying the previous Services Orders, or in the event of late payment ;
  • In the case where the Service Order placed by the Client is considered as illegal or contrary to the law, to the public policy, to accepted standards of good behavior and to integrity.

13.1.1 Before the performance of the Service
In principle, once the estimate has been signed and includes the Client’s “Good for agreement”, it has the legal value of a contract and it is not possible to go back on it. However, in the event that the performance of the Service has not begun or that no Third-Party Provider has been solicited or that no fees has been advanced, THE PARISIAN could be flexible with respect to its Client in an amicable negotiation.

If the Third-Party Provider has granted a refund to THE PARISIAN, We refund to the Client only the amount granted by Third-Party Provider.

 

13.2 Partial modification of the Order

Any order for additional Services and any request for modification to a Service must be accepted beforehand by THE PARISIAN. It may be accepted only within the limits of our capacity for action and the availabilities of the Third-Party Providers. In the event of acceptance, this additional Service or the modification of the Service will result in an amendment to the estimate which must be expressly approved (“Good for Agreement”) and signed by the Client, and in a deposit recalculated in accordance with the article 12.3.1.

If a product or service is unavailable, THE PARISIAN undertakes to do its best to offer alternative products or services. However, the proposal and implementation of alternative solutions are conditional upon the receipt of a written agreement by the Client. If no replacement solution is found or accepted by the Client within eight (8) days from the date of request for addition/modification of the Service, THE PARISIAN proceeds with the outright cancellation of the Service Order. No indemnity of any kind may be charged to THE PARISIAN by the Client for this. In addition, the latter will be liable for all amounts eventually advanced by THE PARISIAN with the Third-Party Providers that have not been refunded to THE PARISIAN after the modification/cancellation of the Order.

This rate may vary depending on the nature of the service requested and the amount of time THE PARISIAN has devoted to the accomplishment of the mission.

15.2.2 Hourly / daily / weekly lump sum
Some Services require an important research time or a lot of travels to submit proposals as close as possible to the Client’s expectations (development of tailor-made trips, search for a hotel, shopping services, etc.). For this reason, We calculate the price of the service on an hourly or daily basis, in addition to the possible hourly increase (art. 15.2.3).

Any payment beyond the agreed deadline indicated on the invoice shall give rise to the payment of late penalty fees by the Client without any formal notice. THE PARISIAN applies penalty interest for late payments and a minimum flat-rate allowance as compensation for recovery costs, to which is added the initial total amount of the invoice, VAT included.
NB : The fact that a Client and/or a Third-Party Payor requires from THE PARISIAN to delay the issue of the invoice to lengthen the effective payment period is considered as an abuse. THE PARISIAN reserves the right to refuse this request.

15.7.2 Penalty interest for late payments
We apply the interest rate applied by the European Central Bank to its most recent refinancing operation, increased by 10 points.
In the event of late payment, the calculation rule of the penalty interest for late payments is as follows :
Penalty interest for late payments = Due amount (VAT included) * Interest rate * ( Number of overdue days / 365

15.7.3 Flat-rate allowance for recovery costs ( applicable to professional Client only )
In addition to the late payment allowance, any sum, including the deposit, not paid by the professional Client at the due date shall result in the payment of a fixed allowance for recovery costs of forty (40) euros for each unpaid invoice for THE PARISIAN. The indemnity is owed in full rightfully and without formality to THE PARISIAN even if the invoice is paid partially at the due date, whatever the duration of the delay ( the allowance is not owed for each overdue day ). When the recovery costs are higher than the amount of the flat-rate allowance fixed by decree, THE PARISIAN may request, upon justification, additional compensation.

ARTICLE 16 : CLAIM

Claims are admissible provided that the invoice amount has been paid and/or the Service Order has been performed and completed. Under penalty of being automatically inadmissible, claims must be reported, whatever the cause or nature, within seventy-two (72) hours by registered letter with acknowledgement receipt, accompanied by proof of the injury suffered. The Client making the claim shall bear the consequences, whatever they may be, resulting from erroneous, incomplete, inapplicable documents or declarations, or lately provided.
If the Client does not issue any reservations or claims expressly once the products and/or Services have been delivered, they will be considered as complying, in terms of quantity and quality, with the Client’s Service Order.

ARTICLE 17 : PERFORMANCE OF THE SERVICE ORDER BY THE THIRD-PARTY PROVIDERS

17.1 Intervention of the Third-Party Providers at THE PARISIAN’s request

Depending on the nature of the Service Order, THE PARISIAN may call on some Third-Party Providers to ensure its successful implementation. We put the Client in contact with the Third-Party Providers, which are mostly our partners. In this case, THE PARISIANsimply acts as an intermediary in the relations between the Client and the Third-Party Providers. It shall be the Client’s responsibility to consult the Third-Party Providers’ General Terms and Conditions of Sale and to accept them expressly.

 

17.2 Right of withdrawal

The Client is reminded that He/She has a period of fourteen (14) clear days from the confirmation or acceptation of the estimate issued by the Third-Party Provider, to exercise His/Her right of withdrawal without having to justify reasons or pay penalties. However, the Client may exercise this right provided that He/She acts as a consumer and not a professional, and that the Contract is concluded at a distance ( via the Website ).

However, the right of withdrawal cannot be exercised by the Client as part of the following requests for services and contracts :

  • 1° The provision of Services fully performed before the end of the withdrawal period and where the performance began after the express prior consent of the consumer and the express waiver of his right of withdrawal ;
  • 2° The provision of goods or services whose price depends on fluctuations in the financial market which are beyond the control of THE PARISIAN and which may occur during the withdrawal period ;
  • 3° The provision of goods made according to the specifications of the consumer or clearly personalized ;
  • 4° The provision of goods subject to deteriorate or perish rapidly ;
  • 5° The provision of goods which have been unsealed by the consumer after delivery and which cannot be returned for reasons of hygiene or health protection ;
  • 6° The provision of goods which after having been delivered and, by their nature, are inseparably mixed with other items ;
  • 7° The provision of alcoholic beverages whose delivery is deferred beyond 30 days and whose value agreed at the conclusion of the Contract depends on fluctuations in the market that are beyond the control of THE PARISIAN ;
  • 8° Maintenance or repair work to be carried out urgently at the home of the consumer and expressly requested by Him/Her, within the limits of spare parts and works strictly necessary to respond to the emergency ;
  • 9° The provision of audio or video recordings or computer software when unsealed by the consumer after delivery ;
  • 10° The provision of a newspaper, periodical or magazine, except for subscription contracts to these publications ;
  • 11° Services and Contracts concluded during a public auction ;
  • 12° The provision of accommodation Services ( other than residential accommodation ), the transport services of goods, car rentals, food services or leisure activities, which must be provided on a specified date/period ;
  • 13° The provision of digital content not supplied on a material support, where the execution began with the express prior consent of the consumer and the express waiver of his/her right of withdrawal.

The Client is asked to be very attentive to the terms and conditions implemented by the Third-Party Providers for exercising the right of withdrawal.

 

17.3 Payment of the products and Services from the Third-Party Providers

The Client pays directly the Third-Party Providers either the same day of the Service Order, or on the delivery date, in accordance with the payment terms they usually apply. If the Third-Party Providers require payment of the product / Service before the delivery of the latter to the Client, THE PARISIAN proposes to the Client the following options :

17.3.1 Immediate payment of products and services by the Client
The Client may request and authorize THE PARISIAN to use its remote payment card in order to pay directly and immediately a product or Service to the Third-Party Provider. The commitment to pay with a payment card is irrevocable. By communicating the information relating to its bank card, the Client authorizes THE PARISIAN to use His/Her bank card, and the Third-Party Provider to debit the amount corresponding to the previously validated price from the Client’s account. To this end, the Client confirms that He/She is the owner of the bank card and that the name displayed on it is indeed His/Her own.
When THE PARISIAN issues an estimate in response to the Client’s Service request, the validation of this estimate by the Client is deemed to be acceptance of debit of the Service Order amount thanks to the Client’s payment card. The Client must ensure that His/Her payment card information are correct and that He/She has the funds available in his bank account to pay for the Services and/or products ordered. In the event that the debit of the amounts owed is impossible, the sale and the Service Order will be immediately cancelled by law.

17.3.2 Advance fees by THE PARISIAN
Alternatively, THE PARISIAN may advance fees corresponding to the purchases of goods or services necessary for the proper performance of the Service Order, up to a maximum of 200.00 euros inclusive of all taxes per service and per person. When the mission entrusted by the Client has been performed and delivered, THE PARISIAN shall give Him/Her a copy of the invoices paid to the Third-Party Providers if He/She asks for them, in addition to the invoice corresponding to the Service performed by THE PARISIAN. The Client must reimburse all the amounts advanced by THE PARISIAN. We always keep a copy of all invoices from Third Party Providers and those sent to the final Client as evidence for the Client in case of loss or dispute, but also for the tax administration in case of control.

NB :
1) Before any Party makes any payment to the Third-Party Providers, THE PARISIAN shall inform the Client in writing of their payment terms and conditions. The Company also informs the Client of the payment solutions available mentioned above, if the Third Party Providers require the payment of the ordered good/Service before its delivery. The choices expressed in writing by the Client will be transcribed on the estimate and this estimate will constitute proof of the Client’s consent and commitment only if it is signed, dated with the mention “Good for agreement”.
2) We apply VAT to the invoices and estimates for all of our professional and individual Clients.

ARTICLE 18 : NON-SOLICITATION CLAUSE

THE PARISIAN and the Client are committed to each other not to poach, hire or make work any person and any company that has participated directly or indirectly in the performance of the Services Orders requested by the Client during the entire term of the Contract and, if applicable, of its amendments. This prohibition shall continue to apply for a period of 18 months from the termination of the Subscription Agreement and, if applicable, of its amendments. Failure to comply with this prohibition automatically entails an obligation on the part of the offender to pay to the other Party, as compensation, an amount equivalent to the gross remuneration received by the person concerned during the last 18 months preceding His/Her departure, without prejudice to compensation for the damages actually suffered.

ARTICLE 23 : NON-PERFORMANCE OF
THE CONTRACT AND THE SERVICES

Clients are reminded that pursuant to the Article 1219 of the French Civil Code, each Party may refuse to fulfil its obligation even though it is due, if the other Party does not perform its obligation and if the non-performance is sufficiently serious, that is to say, likely to call into question the continuation of the Contract or to fundamentally upset its economic balance. The suspension of execution shall be effective immediately on receipt of the notification of default sent by the Party that is victim of the breach to the defaulting Party, indicating the intention to apply the breach exception until the defaulting Party has remedied the deficiency found. This notification of default is sent by registered letter with a request for acknowledgement of receipt or in any other durable written medium allowing proof of the dispatch.

This non-performance of the Contract may also be used for preventive purposes, in accordance with the legal provisions of the Article 1220 of the French Civil Code, if it is clear that one of the Parties will not fulfil its obligations at the end of the term and that the consequences of such non-performance are sufficiently serious for the Party that is the victim of the default. This right shall be used at the risk of the Party taking the initiative.

The suspension of performance shall be effective immediately, upon receipt by the alleged defaulting Party of the notification of the intention to apply the pre-emptive non-performance exception until the alleged defaulting Party fulfils the obligation for which a future breach is evident. This notification is sent by registered letter with a request for acknowledgement of receipt or in any other durable written medium allowing to provide a proof of the dispatch.

This Article 23 shall not apply to cases of suspension expressly stipulated elsewhere and in particular to cases of suspension for non-payment, non-compliance with payment conditions, incorrect information, in which cases the suspension procedures laid down in the relevant Articles shall apply.

24.2 Third-Party providers’ liability

Si THE PARISIAN fait appel à un ou plusieurs Prestataires Tiers pour l’exécution d’une Commande, en aucun cas La Société ne pourra être tenue responsable du choix de ces Prestataires Tiers ni de la mauvaise exécution, de la dégradation d’une demande de prestation par ces Prestataires Tiers. Ces derniers restent les seuls responsables des produits et prestations de services qu’ils proposent et fournissent au Client final. En cas de réclamation, et quelle que soit la raison, le Client devra en conséquence s’adresser directement aux Prestataires Tiers concernés.

Grâce à son Abonnement, le Client dispose d’un accès à un grand nombre d’avantages négociés auprès des Prestataires Tiers sélectionnés par THE PARISIAN. Les Partenaires sont toutefois libres de modifier à tout moment leurs conditions générales de vente et d’utilisation, et THE PARISIAN ne pourra être tenue responsable des changements effectués.

 

24.3 In case of force majeure

Any external event beyond the control of the Parties that cannot reasonably be foreseen and overcome will be considered as a force majeure event as recognized by the jurisprudence of the French courts, in accordance with Article 1218 of the French Civil Code.

Thus, THE PARISIAN will not be held responsible following a force majeure event making impossible the total or partial fulfilment of its obligations as part of the estimate and the Subscription Agreement, leading to the non-feasibility of a Service ordered by the Client or causing damage of any kind whatsoever for the Client.

The occurrence of such an event constitutes a cause of total or partial cancellation of THE PARISIAN’s obligations towards the Client, without this giving rise to compensation for the benefit of the Client. In this case, THE PARISIAN will inform the Client and propose one or more alternative solutions in line with the Order. In this case, THE PARISIAN will inform the Client and will propose Him/Her alternatives complying with the Service Order.

Likewise, THE PARISIAN shall not be liable for all the disadvantages or damages inherent in the use of the Internet network, particularly for a breach of service, an external intrusion or the presence of computer viruses.

Similarly, the responsibility of THE PARISIAN shall not be liable for any inconvenience or damage arising from the use of the Internet, including a break in service, external intrusion or presence of computer viruses.

 

24.4 Insurance

THE PARISIAN subscribed to all the guarantees necessary to cover at sufficient levels the liabilities related to the performance of the Contract with an insurance company that is known to be solvent.
THE PARISIAN shall be held liable only in case of proven fault or neglect and its liability is limited to any direct material prejudice, hereby excluding any other form of indirect prejudice. Under no circumstance, can THE PARISIAN be responsible for indemnifying the consecutive and non-consecutive immaterial or indirect loss or damages incurred by the Client such as, without this list being exhaustive, business interruption, loss of production, loss of profits, loss of revenue, loss of contract, prejudice to the business reputation, missed opportunities, business damages, extra production costs, immobilization of staff and materials.

25.6 In case of error or Client’s lack of transparency

THE PARISIAN shall not be liable for damages resulting from errors arising from documents and information provided or hidden by the Client.
