General conditions : rental of skis by internet

Preamble

Reservation by Internet should be carried out at least 3 days before the beginning of the rental in periods of school holidays and up to 2 days from the beginning outside school holidays.

The equipment offered for rental is described on the present site, it being specified that the client should reserve a range of equipment and not one model in particular.

Article 1 - TAKING EFFECT - PROVISION AND RECEPTION

  1. The rental takes effect at the moment when the client takes possession of the equipment in the FCMS SPORTS mountain shop, for the duration indicated in the rental contract. It ends on the date and at the time indicated in the rental contract.

    The periods of rental available for reservation are stated by means of a timetable on which the days not open for reservation are 'barred' and not active.

    Risks will be transferred during the handover of the equipment to the client, who will then assume responsibility under his own entire responsibility, and undertakes to use it in all circumstances as a responsible person. The rental contract is only in force for the duration of the rental. If the client retains the equipment beyond this without having regularised the situation, he loses the benefits of all the guarantees foreseen in the rental contract.

  2. Taking away the products from the shop at the place of signature of the rental contract being rented is the responsibility of the person making the rental.

In case of delay in taking away the products that have been rented, the client must warn the resort shop as quickly as possible. The products will then be kept for the client for 24 hours. Beyond this period, they will be offered for rental again, without any indemnity being due to the client. The product must be returned to the place from which it was taken.

Article 2 -RENTAL PRICE AND MEANS OF PAYMENT

1. RENTAL PRICE

The rental price is determined by the range of equipment chosen by the client, by the period chosen and by the date of reservation.

General conditions : The general FCMS SPORTS tariff applies for all reservations carried out up to 30 days before taking possession of the equipment.

Special conditions : Specific advantages may apply to advance reservations, local promotions during certain periods or last minute offers, only by internet.

The rental price for short stays (from 2 to 4 days) is calculated on the basis of the weekly price (6/7 days), divided by 5 then multiplied by the number of days of rental.

A deposit must be paid on reservation and this will be 30% of the total amount of the rental. The balance will be paid at the resort shop on pick-up of the equipment.

The prices indicated may be modified at any time without warning, so that the articles will be invoiced for according to the tariff in force when the order is recorded.

The FCMS SPORTS offer may not be accumulated with any other promotional offer whatsoever (reduction coupons from groups of companies, reduction vouchers, etc.).

Once an order has been confirmed by a payment it may not be modified in any way.

2. SECURISED PAYMENT THROUGH THE WEB SITE

The client may pay for the reservation directly on line, by choosing from among the following symbols - VISA, EC (Eurocard) or MC (Mastercard) - and entering the 16 numbers and the expiry date of his card as well as the security code composed of the 3 digits on the back of the card.

Only bank cards bearing a CB, VISA, EUROCARD or MASTERCARD symbol and issued in France or in the framework of international networks approved by the GIE Bank Cards system are accepted. An order confirmed in this manner by the client on the Internet site will only come into effect when the central network of bank cards has given its approval. If this is refused, FCMS SPORTS reserves the right to cancel the reservation. In such a case, the client will be contacted by e-mail or telephone as quickly as possible.

The data relating to the bank card are only retained for the time it takes to process the reservation.

Article 7 - RESPONSIBILITY - GUARANTEE

As long as all of the obligations arising from the contract are executed, the client will benefit from the following dispositions, except in case of fraud :

  1. Unless the client has subscribed to the 'theft, breakages' guarantee foreseen in paragraph 2) below, the client will not benefit from any cover for any damages to the rented item and personally accepts responsibility in relation to said damages whatever their cause. However, the client will not be held responsible for the damaging consequences of hidden faults in the rented equipment or of wear which is not apparent but renders the equipment inappropriate for the use for which it is intended, as long as proof of such faults or wear can be demonstrated by the client.

  2. 'Theft, breakages' guarantee : the client may, if he wishes, when he takes possession of the equipment, subscribe to a guarantee which is payable in advance and invoiced according to the conditions posted in this shop. In this case, the shop will have no further claim against the client and will take responsibility, in the framework of normal use, the entirety of the costs of repair or replacement after deduction of a contribution equivalent to the price of a rental of 7 days for a piece of equipment identical to the rented item. The payment of this contribution will be in addition to payment for the actual days of rental.

    To allow this guarantee to operate, the client must :

    • in case of theft : supply to the shop, within 24 hours, the original of the report of theft, issued by the gendarmerie or the police services.
    • in case of breakage : return of the damaged equipment to the FCMS SPORTS shop, the equipment being recognisable and complete.
