3- Placement of order, Offer, and Contracting
Orders may be placed exclusively online at this Site, which is available in English. Before placing the order, you may review and change data related to the order at any time in the “shopping bag” area of this Site. You may identify and correct input errors any time before submitting the order by clicking the "submit order" button, and may do so by reviewing the order and the price, reviewing the details of each product, and selecting or deselecting a product.
You may also place an order through your account after you have successfully registered here. You must keep your user name and password and any other information needed to login to your account, if applicable, confidential and secure. We are not responsible for any unauthorized access to, or any use of, your Account by others.
The presentation of products on this Site does not constitute a binding offer from the Seller.
We reserve the right to limit the maximum product quantity and/or the maximum amount per order.
When you click the "submit order" button, you agree to enter into a purchase agreement and to these Terms. Orders will not be placed and processed until you accept these Terms (for example, by placing a checkmark in the appropriate check box). Once you have placed an order with the Seller, we will send you an e-mail confirming receipt and listing details of the order (order confirmation) without undue delay. This order confirmation does not constitute completion of your purchase, but is only intended to inform you, the Buyer, that we received the purchase request. A contract of sale shall be created only when we ship the ordered product to the Buyer and confirm shipping with a second e-mail (shipping confirmation). No contract of sale shall be created for products not listed in the shipping confirmation. The Seller shall be the contracting party. These Terms applicable to your purchased product and other terms of sales will be stored by the Seller and is available for the Buyer to review on request.

4.2 Incomplete deliveries and damaged or faulty products
You may (a) exchange your products or (b) obtain a full refund if the products in your order are damaged or faulty upon receipt, or if the products you have received are not the products you originally ordered.
When exchanging damaged or faulty products or incorrect deliveries, we will dispatch replacement items to you free of charge provided you first return the products in your order to us in the condition in which you received them.
With respect to damaged, faulty, or incorrect orders, or delayed deliveries, we will refund (to the original credit or debit card account used to make the online purchase):
- i) the full purchase price;
- ii) the delivery charges incurred in delivering the products to you (where only part of an order is returned to us, we may reduce the amount of the delivery charge we refund you to account for the delivery costs of those items sent to you and not returned); and
- iii) the shipping costs to return the products to us, provided you first return the products in your order to us in the condition in which you received them. If you fail to return products to us we may charge you for the products or the cost incurred in collecting them from you.
To obtain a refund or exchange products, please return products within thirty (30) calendar days as of the delivery date of the defect.
You shall also be entitled to a refund if you order was delivered after thirty (30) business days from the date of your order caused by the willful misconduct or gross negligence of the Seller or its supplier. To obtain a refund, please return products within thirty (30) calendar days as of the delivery date of the product, including the shipping label provided with the delayed product.
The above provisions do not affect your statutory rights.
5- Product Descriptions and Prices
We will take all reasonable care to ensure that descriptions, details, and prices of the products appearing on this Site are accurate at the time they are entered onto the system. This Site contains a large number of products and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products listed on this Site may be incorrectly priced or described. If a product’s correct price is higher than the price stated on this Site, we reserve the right to cancel your order prior to sending you shipping confirmation (as defined above) or to supply it at the previously indicated price.
Product prices are in US Dollars and are stated exclusive of delivery charges, which will be indicated separately on this Site and before order completion.
WHILE WE AIM TO KEEP THIS SITE AS UP TO DATE AS POSSIBLE, WE DO NOT WARRANT THAT PRODUCT DESCRIPTIONS OR OTHER CONTENT AVAILABLE ON THIS SITE ARE ACCURATE, COMPLETE, RELIABLE, CURRENT, OR ERROR-FREE.
Products advertised for sale on this Site may be ordered only if the invoice and delivery addresses are within the United States of America.
We will make every effort to deliver the product to you within the time indicated on this Site and in any event within thirty (30) calendar days of order confirmation. Nonetheless, the times indicated on this Site are predictive only. We shall not be liable in any way if delivery takes place at a later date.
To the fullest extent permitted by the applicable law, if the Seller is unable to deliver the ordered product through no fault of its own, we shall be entitled to withdraw from the contract with the Buyer. In this case the Buyer will be advised immediately that the product is unavailable. We will then return the sums paid by you within thirty (30) business days of the day after the end of the delivery period.
The Seller ships all orders via a parcel service (UPS). All items are insured by the Seller until they have been delivered at your address. In case of incomplete or damaged deliveries, please refer to section 4.2 of these Terms.
If the Buyer was apprised of the delivery date within a reasonable time period, but it is impossible to effect delivery through no fault of its own, for example because the delivered merchandise does not fit through the Buyer's building door, front door, or the staircase; because the Buyer cannot be found at the address he indicated, the Buyer shall bear the costs for the unsuccessful delivery.
7- Due date, payment, and default
Payment can be made by credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover) or via PayPal. By using and verifying one of these payment methods, you confirm that the payment method being used is yours. The amount payable will be debited or charged to your account when your order is accepted by us. All credit card holders are subject to validation checks and authorization by the card issuer. If the issuer of your credit card refuses to authorize payment to us, we shall postpone delivery and contact you. In that case we shall not be liable for any delay or non-delivery. To protect your credit card details, we will process payment by means of an encrypted connection supported by your browser. We are not liable for any misuse of information by third parties.
Payment is complete when our bank account is irrevocably credited with the amount due.
If you are in default or if your account cannot be debited upon acceptance of your order, the Seller shall be entitled automatically and without prior notice to charge daily late payment interest at the rate of (i) 5 % p.a. above the applicable statutory interest rate for professionals, and (ii) the applicable statutory interest rate for consumers, as of those events. The Seller explicitly reserves the right to prove additional damages and collection costs and to claim compensation therefor.
8- Risk and title
The products will be delivered to the place of delivery specified in the Seller’s shipping confirmation. Risk of loss, damage, and theft of the products transfers to the Buyer upon delivery.
Products shall remain the property of the Seller until complete and final payment of the purchase price, including any transportation charges, taxes, and late payment interest. The Buyer will ensure that the goods subject to retention of title remain at all times recognizable as the property of the Seller. If the Buyer resells or pledges goods that are subject to retention of title, it will notify the third party that the goods are subject to retention of title by the Seller.
If the product is defective, the statutory provisions shall apply.

12.1 We reserve the right to deny all or some portion of the Service to any user, in our sole discretion, at any time, and to terminate any user at any time. Without limiting the foregoing, or assuming additional legal obligations, we have a policy of terminating repeat violators of these Terms and applicable law.

In the event that we terminate a user without cause, we may, but are under no obligation to, issue to such user a refund of any orders which have been placed, but have not yet been fulfilled.
12.2 Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, we also reserve the right to, in our sole discretion, take such actions as are necessary to avoid repeated violations of these Terms or applicable law, or protect other individuals from harm, including but not limited to restricting your access to or use of the Service, immediately terminating your use of the Service, or terminating your use of the Service by blocking certain IP addresses from accessing the Service.

13- General terms
13.1 Applicable Law – Jurisdiction
By visiting this Site, you expressly agree that the Terms and any dispute, claim, action, cause of action, issue, or request for relief between you and Clarins arising out of or relating to these Terms, your visit to our Site, the Club Clarins Loyalty Program, or to products or services obtained on or through our Site (collectively “Disputes”) will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the state of New York, U.S.A., without giving effect to any conflict-of-law principles that may provide the application of the law of another jurisdiction. Subject to Section 13.2, you and we irrevocably consent to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the state or federal courts in New York County, State of New York, for all Disputes that are heard in court. Each party to these Terms agrees that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, each party hereby agrees to, and does, waive any right to a jury trial.
13.2 Binding Arbitration
You and we agree to submit all Disputes to confidential and binding arbitration in the State of New York. This agreement to arbitrate will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1 (the “FAA”) and shall be governed by the Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, “AAA Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as modified by these Terms, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules are available online at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. The arbitrator's award shall be binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.
You and Clarins shall select a mutually agreeable arbitrator from the AAA. Unless otherwise precluded by law, you and Clarins shall each separately pay your own attorneys’ fees and costs.
Notwithstanding the above, if the Dispute concerns a matter for injunctive or other similar relief that is appropriate under applicable law, for instance the enforcement or validity of our, or our licensors’, intellectual property rights, we may seek such injunctive or other similar relief in any state or federal court of competent jurisdiction, whether or not it is in the State of New York.
You agree that if any provision of these Terms and Conditions is found to be invalid, unenforceable, or void, that provision shall be struck from the Terms, and the remainder of the Terms shall remain in full force and effect consistent with applicable law. However, in the event the provisions waiving or precluding class arbitration proceedings are found to be invalid, unenforceable, or void for any reason, the entire agreement to arbitrate shall be void.
13.4 Limitation on Disputes
You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any Dispute must be filed within one (1) year after the occurrence of the event or facts giving rise to a Dispute, or you waive the right to pursue any Dispute based upon such event or facts forever.
Our failure to enforce any right or provision in these Terms will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision or of any other rights or provisions in these Terms. A waiver must be in writing and signed by the party giving the waiver.
14- Auto-Replenishment Service Terms & Conditions
Auto-Replenishment Service is a subscription service offered by Clarins. Clarins reserves the right to change the repeat order benefits, the discount amount and free delivery offer at any time. Auto-Replenishment items will ship automatically based on the frequency you select until you cancel. By placing your order you are authorizing us to charge your chosen payment method for future orders at the frequency you have selected.
14.1 Initiating Service
Only items where 'Auto-Replenish' option is available will qualify for Auto-Replenishment benefits. You must be logged in to your account to submit an Auto-Replenishment order. You must save a valid credit card in order to begin your Auto-Replenishment Service. This credit card will be charged for subsequent orders.
On all Auto-Replenishment orders (initial order and recurring orders) you will qualify for 10% off each auto-replenishment item, free shipping, and 3 free samples. If your order contains a mixture of auto-replenishment items and one-time delivery items, only the auto-replenishment items will qualify for the 10% discount. Free shipping only applies to the Economy shipping option. For recurring orders, Customers will receive a random assortment of samples.
Please note that the Auto-Replenishment discount on initial order may not be combinable with all promotions. The offer is not combinable with the Welcome offer or major sales events such as Friends & Family, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday.
14.3 Recurring Orders
You will receive an email 10 days prior to your next scheduled order that confirms the details of your upcoming subscription order.
After your first order, the total cost for each subscription order will be the cost of the item on the day we send you this email plus sales tax, if applicable. The base price of the item will reflect the price listed on the site at the time of the order, which could could vary from what you paid on your initial replenishment order. Prices are subject to change without notice. In the event that a product is listed at an incorrect price, Clarins shall have the right to refuse or cancel orders placed for the product at the incorrect price.
After placing your initial Auto-Replenishment order on Clarins.com, subsequent Auto-Replenishment orders do not qualify for promotions and Gift with Purchase offers that may have been available when placing the initial order or may be available on the site at the time the recurring order is placed.
14.4 Managing Service
You can edit or cancel your Auto-Replenishment subscriptions at any time through the Auto-Replenishment Service section which can be found in My Account. In this section you can change the frequency of shipments, update your shipping address, skip an order, pause your subscription, and reactivate subscriptions.
You can change the default credit card that will be charged for auto-replenishment orders in My Account > Profile > Payment Details.
For your initial Auto-Replenish order you must pay using a credit card, and for recurring orders you must have a default credit card saved in your Clarins account. We regret that you cannot pay using a Clarins eGift Certificate, PayPal, or any other alternative payment methods at this time. Credit card failures may prevent order completion. If we are unable to complete a charge, we may retry up to three times. If your credit card payment fails and you do not update your payment details when you are notified, Clarins may cancel your subscription. To update your credit card information, log into your account and visit My Account > Payment Details or contact Customer Care.
14.6 Add-On Items
If you have an active subscription as part of the Auto-Replenishment Service and are logged into your account, you will have the option to add items to your upcoming Auto-Replenishment order while browsing on the site. You can add the item as either a one-time delivery or as an auto-replenishment subscription. If you add an item as a one-time delivery, it will not receive the 10% discount. Only those products for which you select "auto-replenish" will receive the 10% discount.
14.7 Club Clarins Rewards Program
Auto-replenishment orders, both the initial order and recurring orders, are eligible to earn points as part of the Club Clarins US Loyalty Program (described below).
We may terminate your subscription at our discretion without notice. If we do so you will only be charged for orders that have been shipped to you.
15- Club Clarins US Loyalty Program
15.1 Membership Eligibility and Overview
(a) The Club Clarins US Loyalty Program (“Program”) is offered at the sole discretion of Clarins. The Program is available to individuals for their personal use only and is limited to one account per individual. Corporations, associations or other groups may not participate in the Program. Individuals who are legal residents of the United States (including its territories and possessions) and who provide and maintain a valid email address are eligible to become members. No purchase is necessary to join the Program. We may refuse to create an account for any reason. Employees and individuals employed by our business partners or vendors are eligible for membership, but may be excluded from certain benefits of the Program.
(b) By joining the Program and becoming a Program member, you agree that you have read, understood and agree to be bound by these Terms and by any changes or modifications we may make. You should review these Terms and the related policies and FAQs frequently as they may change from time to time. These Terms do not alter in any way the terms or conditions of any other agreement you may have with us, including any agreement for products or services. The Program is void where prohibited by law.
15.2 Program Enrollment
(a) Eligible individuals may enroll in the Program by visiting the Site and following the Program prompts to register for the Program.
(b) You are required to provide your email address in order to enroll in the Program. You will also need to create an account by providing your name and creating a password in order to access certain Program benefits and rewards. You are solely responsible for maintaining the accuracy of your account information and for updating it as required. You may update your personal information on the Site.
(c) Only one Program account may be associated with a single email address.
15.3 How the Program Works
(a) The Program is our way to recognize and reward our customers for purchasing & using Clarins products, as well as participating in select brand activities. Members earn points that they can redeem for complimentary products, Club Clarins Dollars, services and other rewards available through our online rewards catalogue. The more points a member earns, the higher their tier and access to the tier’s corresponding benefits in addition to a more extensive rewards selection! Rewards and tier benefits evolve over time and may be available on a limited basis, so be sure to check the latest offerings on the Site. We also communicate on the Program benefits and promotions through Email & Web Site marketing. Visit our FAQs to learn more about earning points and reaching the Program loyalty tiers.
(b) The Program is a tier-based program determined by the number of points a member has earned within a rolling 12-months basis on eligible purchases and through qualifying activities, beginning on the date when you enroll or reach a new tier. There are 3 tiers with associated benefits:
Tier 1: LIKE (0-2,499 points)
Tier 2: LOVE (2,500-7,999 points)
Tier 3: ADORE (8,000+ points)
(c) When you join, you’ll be automatically eligible for Tier 1, LIKE and associated benefits. Once you earn at least 2500 points during the 12 months following your enrollment or earlier, you’ll be automatically moved up to Tier 2, LOVE. If you earn 8000 points or more in your first year or earlier, you’ll qualify for Tier 3, ADORE.
(d) Your status in a particular tier is good for 12 months from when you first qualify for that tier. After that, you’ll need to have earned enough points to qualify for that tier again to renew. Otherwise you will be in the tier that corresponds to the number of points earned. For example, if you are in Tier 2, LOVE, starting November 1, 2022, you’ll maintain LOVE status until October 31, 2023. If you earn between 2,500 and 7,999 points during this timeframe, we will renew your Tier 2 LOVE status for another 12 months. If you earn less points, you will become a Tier 1 LIKE member starting November 1, 2023 for another 12 months’ timeframe or until you earn enough points to upgrade to another tier.
(e) In order for your purchases & brand activities to qualify for the Program, you must be enrolled in the Program within 30 days of the date of purchase and either (1) be signed into your online account at the time of purchase; or (2) provide your Program member identification (that is, the email address you registered under the Program) when (a) purchasing on the Site and/or (b) submitting your qualifying receipt(s) from an authorized retailer within 30 days of the date of purchase. However, if your membership in the Program is terminated for any reason and you enroll in a new Program account, any purchases made prior to the date you enroll in a new Program account do not qualify for points.
- (i) Purchases made on www.clarinsusa.com earn an additional 50 bonus points per order. Eligible purchases include regular priced merchandise, excluding sales tax, state fees, discounts, shipping and delivery charges, and/or other excluded charges specified by us from time-to-time. All points earned from purchases on the Site are pending until your order ships, at which point they are fully matured and capable of redemption.
- (ii) Qualifying purchases made in stores of certain authorized retailers in the United States, and/or through qualifying retailers’ United States websites are eligible for the Program, only if receipts from such purchases are submitted within 30 days of the date of purchase by: (a) uploading the receipt or invoice within your loyalty account on the Site; (b) mailing in your receipt using your Program member identification (that is, the email address you registered under the Program) to Club Clarins, 15 Olympic Drive, Orangeburg, NY 10962.

(h) Points are valid for one year from when you earn them and expire thereafter unless you are in Tier 3 ADORE, in which case your points will not expire while you remain in this tier. You may use your points at any time before they expire. Check your points balance and upcoming expiry dates to redeem them before it’s too late!
15.4 Program Benefit and Rewards
(a) As a member, you earn points that determine which rewards you can redeem, tier levels, and tier benefits. To redeem rewards & special offers, you must have accumulated the minimum number of points as established by us for a particular benefit. Product rewards and samples are shipped on the Site only. Shipping is free if you are in Tier 3 ADORE, or if you redeem your product reward(s) together with an order of $50 or more before taxes and discounts. Otherwise a $5 shipping fee will be required to ship your product reward to you.

Certain benefits are based on tier level achieved and you are eligible for these benefits while you are in that tier regardless of the number of points you currently have. Tier benefits can only be redeemed on the Site except as otherwise noted by Clarins.
