  • Applicable law and jurisdiction clause

    All our sales are governed by French law, notwithstanding the client’s country of domicile, the place where the order was made and the place of delivery. Our GTCs are translated into foreign languages for information purposes only, and only the French text of the GTCs shall apply, where appropriate, over all other versions in a foreign language or any other conflicting document in the event of a dispute. If one of the terms in our GTC is determined invalid, null and void or inapplicable for whatever reason, this term shall be considered autonomous and shall not nullify the force and scope of other terms of our GTC. In the case of a dispute, we ask that the client first contact us by email to reach a mutual agreement. Any dispute concerning the interpretation of the present GTCs, in the absence of a mutual agreement, shall be the exclusive competence of the Tribunal de Commerce de Cannes. The liability of MC Ltd shall, where appropriate, be limited to the amount of the order. Do not hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions. Please fill out our form.
