These General Terms of Sale (the “General Terms of Sale”) are agreed between the company GESTION TEXTILE INTERNATIONALE (the “Company”) and any natural person who is not a merchant (the “User”) wishing to make a purchase on the Website (hereinafter referred to together as the “Parties”).
The Parties agree that these General Terms of Sale exclusively govern their relationship.
All Users have access to the General Terms of Sale at any time on the website http://www.moondreamwebstore.co.uk edited by the Company (the “Website”).
These General Terms of Sale may be modified. The applicable terms are those in force on the Website on the date on which your order is placed. The User is informed of the said terms and accepts them when the order is placed.
The purpose of the General Terms is to define the terms of sale between the Company and the User, from the time an order is placed on the Website to the after-sales service, including payment and delivery.
The Products governed by these General Terms are those featured on the Website, presented as products sold and shipped by the Company (the “Products”). They are offered while stocks last.
The Company offers for sale some Products made to your specifications, which are made to measure (the “Custom Made Products”).
The essential characteristics of the Products (in terms of quality and quantity) are described and presented on the Website as precisely as possible. However, these descriptions and any dimensions or photographs provided shall not be considered as contractual in nature.
We always do our best to ensure that Product photographs and descriptions shown on the Webstore are true to the original Products. However, variations may occur, particularly as a result of the technical limitations of colour rendering on your computer equipment, or industrial constraints on the precision of dimensions (tolerance of 3%), therefore the Company will not be liable for any variations not attributable to it or any insignificant variations.
With regard to Custom Made Products, you are expressly informed that, due to the technical constraints involved in their manufacture, Custom Made Products have a tolerance margin in terms of finished measurements, in the following proportions: 1% All Custom Made Products with measurements in this tolerance margin are considered compliant, which you expressly acknowledge and accept. Outside the tolerance margins, you have one (1) month from the dispatch date of the Custom Made Product to request retouches to your Custom Made Product. All retouches will be invoiced.
We advise Users who wish to order several copies of the same curtain to order them at the same time, in order to avoid any difference in color. If you order two copies of the same curtain separately, the colors may slightly vary because the items were not dyed in the same dye bath.
The Product and Custom Made Products prices shown on the Webstore are indicated in the currency of the country of the Webstore selected by the customer.
Those prices are shown excluding VAT, and include any discounts applicable on the day of the order. The VAT has to be paid by the customer upon delivery and will be collected by the carrier.
The Product and Custom Made Products prices indicated do not include delivery costs (fees for order processing, packaging, shipping and possible returns) The delivery costs will be specified on the order form before validation of the order.
For customers residing outside of the European Union, the prices shown on the Webstore do not include customs duties. The customer will be required to clear the Products and Custom Made Products through customs by paying the duties and taxes upon entry, and the customer remains responsible with regard to those duties and taxes for both declarations and payments to the competent authorities of the country concerned.
The price of Products and Custom Made Products may be modified at any time by the Company. A price may not, however, be modified after validation of the User’s order.
An invoice is drawn up for each order and sent to the User by e-mail.
4.1 Prior identification of the User
For a first order, the User will be required to follow a customer account creation procedure, as indicated on the Website.
To place an order, the User must identify him/herself with an e-mail address or a customer number and password.
If the User has lost or forgotten their password, they may request it again by navigating to the customer account page and selecting “forgotten password”. He/she will then receive a link to modify his/her password at the email address provided when the customer account was created.
The User can also contact the Customer Service Department to request to change the password to his/her customer account.
4.2 Placing the order
The User must be at least eighteen (18) years of age and have the required legal capacity to place and fulfil an order, or the User must have permission allowing them to place and fulfil an order and be able to provide evidence of such permission at any time, following a request from the Company.
The User places an order via the Website in compliance with the procedure as set forth and explained by the Website: Accessible 24 hours a day and 7 days a week at all times, except in the event of voluntary or involuntary interruption, in particular for the purpose of maintenance or owing to force majeure. The User must select a delivery address for the Products located in one of the countries mentioned in article 6.1 below, failing which the order may be refused.
Any order placed before 11:00 am (local time of the Company headquarters) on a business day, it being understood that the work week extends from Monday to Friday ("Business Day"), will be processed the same day. Any order placed after 11:00 am (local time of the Company headquarters) will be processed the following Business Day.
In compliance with article 1369-5 of the French Civil Code on entering into contracts in electronic form, the User may view the details of his order (product, reference, quantity, unit price), the total price and correct any errors. The onus is placed on the User to check an order is correct before confirmation and acceptance. A confirmed order represents an acceptance of all prices and descriptions of Products and Custom Made Products available for sale. Any challenges related thereto will be handled within the framework of a possible exchange and of the guarantees mentioned in article 8 below. The Company will acknowledge receipt of the order as soon as the order is placed by sending an e-mail to the User.
If a Product or a Custom Made Product is unavailable when the order is placed, the Company will inform the User by email at the email address provided when the customer account was created.
Should a Product be unavailable when an order is placed, the Company will inform the User by e-mail.
In certain cases, in particular in failures to pay, an incorrect address or another problem related to the customer account of the User, the Company reserves the right to block the User’s order until the problem is solved.
For any questions relating to an order, you must consult your customer account on the Website or contact Customer Services.

- By PAYPAL.
If the User opts to proceed with a PayPal payment, the User will be automatically directed to the User's PayPal account. Once the PayPal payment has been validated, the User will be invited to complete the order via the Website.
