ARTICLE 1: AREA OF APPLICATION
The present general terms and conditions of sale apply to all sales concluded through the website https://japanese-clothing.com/.
ARTICLE 2: ORDERS
Automatic registration systems shall be regarded as proof of the nature and content of the order. Japanese Clothing confirms acceptance of the order to the client at the e-mail address provided by the client. The sale will be concluded as of the validation by Japanese Clothing of the payment of the order, i.e., as of the date of validation of payment for orders paid online by credit card or as of the date of receipt of payment by check. Japanese Clothing reserves the right to refuse or cancel any order from a client with whom there is a dispute over payment of a previous order.
ARTICLE 3: AVAILABILITY OF ITEMS
As long as our offers and their prices are visible on the site, they are valid. The availability indicated at the time the client consults the site remains dependent on the state of stock at Japanese Clothing and, of course, at the suppliers.
In order to create our showcase and sales catalogue, we work with databases, enriched according to the information provided by our suppliers. Since this database contains more than a hundred articles, not all of them are stored in our reserves, and our offer is therefore subject to the availability of the articles at the suppliers.
Only the definitive rupture of an article at our suppliers leads to the deletion of this one from our offer of sale. In the other cases, a new order within a certain time remains possible.
When there is an unavailability on a product ordered, the customer is informed by e-mail or on the invoice of the products shipped in the case of an order of several articles.
Deadline for delivery of the order: when the order is placed and on the acknowledgement of receipt of the order, a delivery deadline is communicated to customers. It is calculated by adding the longest product availability time to the delivery time of the mode of transport selected by the customer.
From the time the order is placed to the time it is dispatched, the customer has the possibility of cancelling the order.
Articles in pre-order: articles to be published are proposed on the site https://japanese-clothing.com/ in Pre-order. This reservation is made with the indication of a release date announced by the publisher at the opening of the reservation phase. This release date can be changed at any time by the publisher who is solely responsible for the marketing of his product.
In all cases, Japanese Clothing will make every effort, from the date of the final sale, to ship items to customers who have reserved, up to the amount of stock provided by the publisher for the release date.
ARTICLE 4: PRICES
The prices indicated in USD are deemed to be net, excluding shipping costs. This price includes the price of the products, handling, packaging and conservation of the products. They can be modified at any time without prior notice, knowing that the articles will be invoiced on the basis in force at the time the order is recorded. All orders are invoiced in USD and payable in USD. Any customs charges or local taxes remain the responsibility of the recipient.
ARTICLE 4.1: Sizes
As an Asian apparel retailer, our company sells clothing products in different sizes with a size chart that can differ from other region sizes. Our company thus informs our customers that sizes are labeled using our supplier-dedicated size chart which is available in each product description. For shoes, our sizes refer to US men’s or average EU sizes.
In case you need assistance in choosing the right size for your order, please contact our support team at email@example.com for a 24-48 hours average response time.
ARTICLE 5: SHIPPING COSTS
Shipping costs include a contribution to the costs of preparation, packaging and postage. Remember to group all your articles on a single order. We will not be able to group two distinct orders and the shipping costs will be charged for each of them.
ARTICLE 6: PAYMENT
You have several means of payment at your disposal that offer maximum security guarantees. You can pay :
– By credit card or private card (Visa card, Eurocard/Mastercard) or directly on the site, in the payment form proposed during the ordering process (entry secured by SSL encryption), by entering the type of card, the number of your card without spaces between the numbers, the control number (located on the back of your card) and the validity date.
