Accordingly, those persons who choose to access the Sites from other locations do so on their own initiative and are solely responsible for compliance with local laws, if and to the extent local laws are applicable.
All users who are minors in the jurisdiction in which they reside (generally under the age of 18) must have the permission of, and be directly supervised by, their parent or guardian to use the Sites. If you are a minor, you must have your parent or guardian read and agree to this Agreement prior to you using the Sites.

The estimate and the GTC (General Sales Conditions) signed by the Customer are valid exclusively together for acceptance of the latter and act as an order form. This must be accompanied by the payment of 30% of the total price of the services to be provided. This sum is non-refundable even in case of breach of contract before its term. The work will begin when all the documents (signed estimate, 30% of the total amount paid) and graphic and textual documentary elements necessary for the good realization of the contract, will be available to the Provider. If the Client returns the quotation at a date later than the start date indicated on the quotation, the Contractor shall be entitled to extend the delivery date by the number of working days beyond the date indicated on the quotation (working days do not include weekends, holidays, sick leave and vacation periods).
Helene & Co. will bill you through an invoice for our Services. By using our paid options you agree to pay Helene & Co. all charges at the prices then in effect for the products or services you or other persons using your billing account may purchase, and you authorize Helene & Co. to charge your chosen payment provider for any such purchases. You agree to make payment using that selected payment method. If you have ordered a product or service that is subject to recurring charges then you agree to us charging your payment method on a recurring basis, without requiring your prior approval from you for each recurring charge until such time as you cancel the applicable product or service. Helene & Co. reserves the right to correct any errors or mistakes in pricing that it makes even if it has already requested or received payment. Sales tax will be added to the sales price of purchases as deemed required by Company. Company may change prices at any time. All payments shall be in U.S. dollars.
Any delay in payment may give rise to late payment penalties payable without reminder, at the rate of 10% of the total invoice per day of delay, as well as a fixed penalty of 40€. The calculation of the penalties will start on the second working day after the settlement date indicated on the invoices. The calculation will end on the day of receipt of the payment.
No deposit will be granted for cash payment. In case of non-payment, the customer will be responsible for all collection costs.
REFUND AND RETURN
All sales are final and no refunds shall be issued.
The following will be invoiced in addition: modifications requested by the Client during the course of the project, if they involve a reworking of the project (author’s corrections). The travels necessary for the good realization of the contract can also be invoiced to the Customer.
In the event that modifications, additions or deletions of data, requested by the Customer during the course of the project – and indicating an omission or an error on his part – lead to additional work, these will be invoiced in addition to the initial estimate. Amounts corresponding to work already performed by the Service Provider are due and payable immediately by the Customer. Subject to the Provider’s agreement, an additional emergency fee (50% of the daily rate) will be charged for services performed at the Customer’s request outside the days and hours defined in the article “General”, or in case of processing the order prior to other orders in progress by the Provider.
Two round trips of modifications are included at each stage of the collaboration. The Customer can request as many modifications as he wants if these requests are grouped in these two round trips. Any additional request will be invoiced at 50 euros excluding taxes.
Two concept proposals will be offered to the customer (except for the development phase). If none of the proposals are suitable for the customer, a third concept proposal will be made. If the third concept proposal is not suitable for the client, any additional proposal will be charged at 100 euros plus VAT.
In general, the Client and the Service Provider agree to cooperate actively to ensure the proper execution of the contract. Each party agrees to communicate any difficulties of which it would be aware as the project progresses, to enable the other party to take the necessary measures.
