Purpose of the T&Cs – Scope
These general terms and conditions of sale (hereinafter referred to as the “T&Cs”) govern all relations between, on the one hand, BIRD (hereinafter referred to as “BIRD” or the “Millésime Group”) and, on the other hand, persons wishing to purchase products or services (hereinafter the “Products” or “Services”) directly on our Website (hereinafter the “Website”) via our store space (https://millesime-maison.com), hereinafter referred to as the “Customer”.

The General Terms and Conditions of Sale are posted online on the www.millesime-collection.com website and can be downloaded by the Customer. They will be sent by post, e-mail or fax to any Customer who so requests. The parties agree that their relationship with regard to the purchase of Products or Services shall be governed exclusively by these T&Cs, to the exclusion of any previously available conditions. However, specific conditions apply to Gift Boxes and Gift Cards (general terms of sale and use of gift boxes). Any contrary condition presented by the Customer shall therefore, in the absence of express acceptance, be unenforceable against the Millésime Group, regardless of when it has been brought to its attention. The Customer declares that they have read these T&Cs before placing their order and has accepted them in full and without reservation. To this end, at the time of each order on the Site, the Customer must confirm their acceptance of the T&Cs by ticking the box provided for this purpose. This acceptance is in no way subject to a requirement for a handwritten signature. Acceptance of these T&Cs presupposes on the part of the Customer that they possess the legal capacity necessary for this action. If the Customer is a minor or does not have this legal capacity, they declare that they have the authorisation of a legal guardian or representative.
The Millésime Group reserves the right to modify and update these General Terms and Conditions of Sale at any time, it being however specified that the applicable General Terms and Conditions of Sale shall be those in force on the date of definitive and unequivocal fulfilment of the order by the Customer and as formally accepted by the latter. The Customer acknowledges the value as proof of the automatic registration systems of the Millésime Group and, unless they provide evidence to the contrary, they waive their right to challenge them in the event of a dispute. In accordance with the provisions of Articles 1125 et seq. of the French Civil Code, these and Conditions of Sale may be retained by electronic download and/or be printed by the Customer. The fact that the Millésime Group does not avail itself, at a given time, of any of the clauses of these T&Cs cannot be interpreted as a waiver of the right to subsequently avail itself of any of said conditions.
Characteristics of the Products and Services – Pre-contractual information
In accordance with Articles L. 111-1 and L. 111-2 of the French Consumer Code, the essential characteristics and products/Services sold electronically are available on the Website www.millesime-collection.com, under the “E-shop” tab. The Customer acknowledges having received the information provided for in Articles L. 111-1 et seq. of the French Consumer Code and the French Consumer Code prior to having concluded the sale, and specifically by means of these General Terms and Conditions of Sale, in a legible and comprehensible manner:

The Millésime Group reserves the right to supplement the Products and Services available for sale or to cease their distribution at its sole discretion and at any time after informing the Customers, on the Website.
Entry into force – Term of the contract
The contract between the Parties enters into force on the date of validation of the order and acceptance of the payment, as defined in Article 4. The contract is concluded for the period necessary for the supply of the Product and/or Service, until the expiry of the guarantees and obligations belonging to the Millésime Group.
Customer – Order
The Millésime Group does not intend to sell to professionals, the Products or Services sold on the Site are exclusively reserved for private individuals, for personal use with no direct relation to the Customer’s professional activity. In order to be able to complete a first order for the purchase of a Product/Services, the Customer must complete an order form specifying certain mandatory fields (title, surname, first name, delivery address, email address, telephone number, etc.) so that their order can be processed by the Millésime Group. The information provided must be complete, accurate and up to date. Failing this or if the Customer does not wish to provide this information, the Millésime Group will not be able to complete the order.
The Customer can place an order: via our Website at https://maison-millesime.com / by telephone at: 05 56 44 81 47, from Monday to Friday, from 9:00 to 19:00 excluding public holidays/by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Products selected by the Customer on the Site are added to the basket as the customer browses. This basket can be consulted and modified at any time in the section located at the top right of each page. The Customer will be able to check the details of their order by clicking on “Order” in the basket section. The details of their order summarise the nature, prices and quantity of Products/Services ordered. Once this order has been validated, the Customer will be asked to expressly accept the General Terms and Conditions of Sale.
The procedure for placing orders on the Site includes the following steps:
Following this selection, a summary of all the choices and the total price of the selected Products and/or Services, your contact details and your payment method will allow you to check the details of your order and thus to make any necessary changes, before your order is finalised; Your “first click” will allow your order to be saved, subject to having expressly accepted these General Terms and Conditions of Sale; Your order will only be finalised after your final approval, which will be confirmed by your “second click”. This “second click” will correspond to the moment when your bank details are saved. However, your contract will only be definitively concluded after your bank has accepted the payment (see conditions in article 6). As soon as an order is placed, the Millésime Group will have access to an interface for tracking its Orders.
Any remote order will produce a confirmation email summarising all the elements relating to your order. By printing and/or retaining this email, you will have access to proof of your order. The Customer declares that they have read and accepted these T&Cs before placing the order. The validation of their order therefore constitutes acceptance of these T&Cs. Orders are only final after full payment of the price by the Customer in accordance with Article 6 below. No cancellation may be accepted, except in the cases provided for in these T&Cs. However, in accordance with Article L121-11 of the French Consumer Code, the Establishment reserves the right to refuse the order if it is abnormal, placed in bad faith or for any other legitimate reason, and in particular, when there is a dispute with the Customer concerning the payment of a previous order. The invoice corresponding to the items ordered by the Customer is sent when the Order is executed.
Delivery – Complaints
The Products are delivered to the delivery address indicated by the Customer during the order process; unless delivery restrictions are indicated on the order validation page by the Customer.
Orders can be shipped anywhere in the world. In the event of delivery of a product outside the territory of the European Union and within Overseas France, the Customer declares themselves to be the importer of the Product and accepts that in such a case, the Millésime Group may be physically unable to provide it with accurate information on the total amount of the costs relating to customs duties and formalities or import taxes applicable in the country where delivery of the Product is requested.
2 Delivery times
Unless otherwise indicated on the Site during the order process or in the description of the products ordered, the Millésime Group undertakes to make its best efforts to deliver the Products as soon as possible and, in any event, within a maximum period of thirty (30) days after the conclusion of the contract with the Customer. In the event of delivery by a courier requiring a scheduled delivery time to be agreed with the Customer, the latter shall contact the Customer as soon as possible to agree a delivery slot no later than thirty (30) days from the validation of the order. The Millésime Group cannot be responsible for the delay in delivery due exclusively to unavailability of the Customer after several suggestions for delivery times by the courier. In the event of orders for several Products at the same time that have different delivery times, the delivery time of the order is based on the longest delivery period. The Millésime Group nevertheless reserves the right to deliver orders in multiple shipments. In the event of payment by bank card and a split shipment, only the Products shipped are debited.
3 Errors – Delivery delays
If the Customer’s parcel is returned to the Millésime Group by the Post Office or other postal service providers, the Millésime Group will contact the Customer upon receipt of the returned parcel to follow up on the order. The re-shipment of the parcel following a return caused by the Customer will involve postal costs for the new shipment, which the Customer must pay in advance. In the event of a delivery or exchange error, the Product to be exchanged or reimbursed must be returned to the Millésime Group in its entirety and in perfect condition. Any defect resulting from an error or poor handling by the Customer cannot be attributed to the Millésime Group. In the event of a late shipment, an email will be sent to the Customer to inform them of any consequence to the delivery time previously indicated to them. In the event of a late delivery, a new delivery time will be proposed. Any delay in delivery in relation to the date or time indicated to the Customer greater than forty (40) days from the conclusion of the contract, or if no date or time is indicated at the time of the order, may result in the termination of the sale at the Customer’s request under the conditions provided for in Articles L.216-2 and L.216-3 of the French Consumer Code. The request must be written by them and sent by signed registered post if, after having instructed the Millésime Group to make the delivery, the latter has not fulfilled its obligations. The Customer shall then be reimbursed, no later than fourteen (14) days after the date on which the contract was terminated, for all sums paid. This clause is not intended to apply if the delay in delivery is due to a case of force majeure.
