Article 1 : Changes to the General Sales Conditions
The present General Sales Conditions apply to any order processed on the website www.zerogchamonix.com. Zero G reserves the right to change or adapt any part of these General Sales Conditions at any time. In case of modification, the applicable General Sales Conditions existing at the time an order is placed will apply to that particular order.
Article 2 : Product Availability
Our range of products is a representation of products that we have in stock. Upon receiving your order, we make sure we have the products on hand. Should they be unavailable (perhaps an error, recall or stock problem), we will either offer you a similar product at a similar price, or a refund. Officially we have 30 days to do this from the time at which you place your order, but we do our best to refund within 21 days. The "time at which you place your order" is understood to be the time at which our system accepts your order & payment and sends you a confirmation email. If a desired product is out of stock, we'll be in touch to you an propose a refund or other solution.
Article 3 : Price
All of our prices include French TVA sales tax, and don''t include shipping. The client pays all shipping costs, unless the client has a promo code or special offer that removes them. Zero G reserves the right to alter all prices at any time, which is something that doesn''t happen often, but is possible in cases such as our costs increasing, the TVA rate going up, or us finding an error in our pricing. We will honour the price at which you ordered the product and is shown on your confirmation email, so long as the product in question was available at that time. The prices in British Pounds or Suiss Francs are only as an indication and do not replace the prices in Euros.
Article 4 : Methods of payment & security
You may pay for your order by:
- Credit or debit card : no banking information passes through the Zero G website. Your online card payment is 100% secure. Your order is saved and accepted when we get the OK from our bank (a process that takes mere seconds).
- Paypal : you''ll need a Paypal account to pay this way. http://www.paypal.com/
- Bank transfer: Attached to your confirmation you''ll find a RIB (a summary of our banking info). Your order is logged and sent when we have received payment. This normally takes 2-3 working days before the funds clear & we can send the order.
- Cheque : simply send a cheque payable to Zero G to this address :
S.V.L. Zero G Chamonix
90 Av. Ravanel le Rouge
Please enclose a copy of your confirmation email when paying by cheque - it helps us find your order a lot faster. Your order will be logged and sent as soon as the cheque has cleared. Please note that during the time a cheque takes to clear, the goods are still available to order on the website. We don''t advise payment by cheque, because we can only guarantee the availability of products at time of ordering, but not necessarily at the time the cheque clears. Card or Paypal payments guarantee a smooth & speedy transaction.
When you put your card information in to the Zero G website, it is encoded and sent to our bank. Zero G has no access to this information, and we don't keep it on our servers. It''s why we ask you to re-enter your card information every time you make a transaction on the site. A little more time consuming, but much more secure.
Property rights clause:
Products remain property of Zero G until full payment of an order. Les produits demeurent la propriété de Zero G jusqu''au paiement intégral de la commande. However, after delivery, responsability is transferred to the client.
Default of payment:
Zero G reserves the right to refuse to deliver or honour an order which comes from a client who has not entirely or partially paid for a previous order or a client with which a payment dispute is occuring.

Holiday days and weekends are not considered "working days". Delivery time overseas can vary from 7 to 30 working days assuming products are available immediately (see Article 2).
