2) Privacy Policy
In the course of communicating with us or transacting business with us, you may provide us with personal information, such as your contact information, your payment information, your product preferences, etc. We, in turn, may use your personal information to respond to your inquiries, to fulfill purchase requests, to improve store operations, to comply with business taxation requirements, and for other important reporting purposes.

In general, we share your personal information on a limited basis only with third parties who are responsible for some form of service concerning your transactions with us. Such third parties will receive only the particular information that is necessary or advisable to perform their function(s). For example, we may share your physical address information with third parties who ship or deliver your order, but such third parties would have no need to obtain your payment information. Or, we may share your credit card information with financial third
parties that process credit card transactions, but such third parties would have no need to obtain your product selections. In rare instances (for example, at the recommendation of
legal counsel), we may be advised or required to provide some of your personal information to legal and/or law enforcement third parties in connection with a court order or other similar written legal or law-enforcement request. Otherwise, we generally do not share your personal information with third parties.

We store your personal information off-line in a secure manner. We transmit your payment information to financial third parties that process credit card transactions in a secure manner. In addition, after your payment has been settled and credited to us, the payment information you provided to us is destroyed from our records for your safety, generally within 5 business days after payment settlement. However, financial third parties that process credit card transactions may continue to store, according to their practices and requirements, any information used for processing your payment, which typically includes card information and one or more brief identifying pieces of information.

If you transact business with us through our web site, we do not receive any details about your payment information other than the invoice total amount; instead, we are provided with contact information and the invoice details needed to fulfill your purchase request. However, financial third parties that process your purchase request may continue to store, according to their practices and requirements, any of the information that you provided, including your payment information, your product choices, your name, physical address(es), email address(es), phone number(s), etc.

Despite the reasonable efforts of Beau Monde Perfumes and its service providers to keep your personal information safe and secure, there may be unforeseen risks concerning the theft and/or misuse of your personal information, even though such risks may be unlikely. If we suspect, or confirm, that the security of your personal information in our possession has been compromised, we will notify you promptly through any contact points that you have provided to us, such as by phone, by email, by physical mailing address, etc. Similarly, if a third-party (e.g., a merchant service provider, a financial institution, a law enforcement officer, etc.) informs us of a security breach concerning your personal data that we provided, we will notify you promptly. If Beau Monde Perfumes is found to incur liability, you agree that the combined total of any and all damages shall not exceed the invoice total for the transaction that gave rise to liability. However, in the event of any force majeure occurrence(s) (including, but not limited to: threatened or actual acts of war, threatened or actual acts of terrorism, severe weather conditions, severe events such as fires/earthquakes/explosions, or any other circumstance or cause beyond the reasonable control of Beau Monde Perfumes in conducting its business) that results in the vulnerability, theft or misuse of your personal data, you agree that Beau Monde Perfumes shall not be liable.

3) Order Acceptance, Modification, Cancellation, Returns, Refunds

Order Acceptance and Modification
Beau Monde Perfumes’ acceptance of your order is subject to your consent to all terms and conditions described in this Notice of Policies. Your authorization to process a payment transaction communicates your consent to these terms and conditions.

Your additions to, or modifications of, these terms and conditions shall not be binding upon Beau Monde Perfumes, unless agreed to in writing by an authorized representative of Beau Monde Perfumes. If you submit an order or other communication that contains terms and/or conditions contrary to the Notice of Policies, fulfillment of your order shall not be understood to be consent to your proposed terms and/or conditions, and shall not be understood to be a waiver by Beau Monde Perfumes of any rights, terms or conditions described in the Notice of Policies.

In response to special orders requested by customers, Beau Monde Perfumes may, at times, originate special orders of products that are not advertised or generally available to all customers. Such products will reflect terms and prices according to current market conditions and availability, and such terms and prices are subject to change at any time. When Beau Monde Perfumes determines that your special order can be fulfilled, you will receive the necessary information (such as overall cost, quantity available, size, expected shipping time, etc.) in order to make a decision about proceeding with the order. If you decide to proceed with the special order, Beau Monde Perfumes will accept your special order upon receipt of your name, shipping address, order details, and advance payment in full.

Order Cancellation
Beau Monde Perfumes offers a policy of product cancellations and/or returns in certain circumstances. In most cases, you may cancel your order for any reason prior to shipment of your order from Beau Monde Perfumes. Simply contact us by phone or email, and we will make our best effort to stop the shipment. If we are able to stop the shipment, you will incur no charges or costs, and any charges that may have been processed on your credit card will be reversed in full. Since we endeavor to ship orders promptly, we recommend that you contact us as soon as possible if you decide to cancel an order. Although we cannot guarantee that your shipment can be stopped, we will make our best effort to do so once we receive your notification.

If you have placed a special order with us, you may cancel your order for any reason prior to our purchase of the specially ordered product on your behalf. Simply contact us by phone or email, and we will cease the procurement process for the special product request.

Returns
Beau Monde Perfumes must receive your returned item, along with proof of purchase, before a refund can be issued. Refunds are typically issued within 10 business days of receipt of un-used, undamaged merchandise.

Beau Monde Perfumes recommends shipment of any returned item(s) using: (a) adequately cushioned packaging to minimize/prevent damage during shipping; (b) shipment service with package tracking capability; and (c) adequate shipping insurance. Beau Monde Perfumes may, at its discretion, decline a refund request if the returned item is lost prior to receipt by Beau Monde Perfumes. Beau Monde Perfumes may, at its discretion, decline or reduce a refund request in connection with returned items that are damaged in shipment.

If your original purchase included a special offer or discount, a product return may disqualify your original order from the special offer or discount. For example, you decide to purchase $120 worth of products. Your original order provided an offer of free shipping for orders exceeding $100 before applying sales tax, and you later decide to return an undamaged product that will change your total order amount to $75 before applying sales tax. You would receive a refund for the returned product, but be billed for the shipping charge that would apply to an order of $75 since the revised order total would no longer qualify for free shipping.

Refunds, No Charges Applied, Exchanges
1) If we have processed a purchase transaction on your credit card, order cancellations prior to shipment from Beau Monde Perfumes will be fully refundable.
2) If you have placed a special order with us, no charges will apply to you (or, any charges to your credit card will be fully refundable) if you cancel the order prior to our purchase of specially ordered item(s) on your behalf.
3) Non-fragrance items such as atomizers, bottles, mirrors, picture frames, etc. may be returned for a refund for any reason (which includes the cost of the product and sales tax, but excludes any outbound or inbound shipping charges) within 30 days of the date of purchase, provided that the items are in un-used, undamaged condition, returned with proof of purchase, and are returned with all original packaging and/or accessories as applicable.
4) Non-fragrance products that are defective may be returned within 30 days of the date of purchase along with proof of purchase. You may choose a refund (which includes the cost of the product and sales tax, but excludes any outbound or inbound shipping charges), or, an exchange for another of the same or similar product(s), or, a repair to the defective product if a repair is possible, or, in-store credit for purchase of another product. If you choose a repair, or an exchange, or in-store credit toward another product, outbound shipping from Beau Monde Perfumes will be provided free of charge to one destination; however, any additional sales tax that applies to replacement products will be charged to you.
5) Any product(s) that we send to you in error may be returned for a refund within 60 days from the date of purchase provided that they are returned in un-used, undamaged condition along with proof of purchase. If all products were shipped to you in error, then you will also receive a full refund for all outbound and return shipping/insurance costs. If some products were shipped to you in error along with other correctly shipped products, then you will receive partial credit for the original outbound and return insurance/shipping costs of the item(s) sent in error.

Beau Monde Perfumes retains all rights to take action(s) (including legal action(s)) and to decline to take action(s) (including legal action(s)), at its discretion. Beau Monde Perfumes may choose to pursue, or decline to pursue, action(s) without regard for whether similar past circumstances have resulted in action(s) or lack of action(s) with respect to you or to others, and without regard for whether future circumstances may result in action(s) or lack of action(s) with respect to you or to others.

In the event of a dispute between you and Beau Monde Perfumes, you agree to contact Beau Monde Perfumes in writing (note: your written communications by paper, fax, or email are all acceptable for this purpose) prior to any legal action in order to facilitate a resolution of the problem within a reasonable period of time, generally not to exceed 60 calendar days. You agree to confirm with Beau Monde Perfumes, by any reasonable means (including verbal means by telephone or voice mail; or written means such as fax message, email, letters on paper delivered with “proof of delivery” type mail service, etc.) that your complaint has been received by Beau Monde Perfumes for review. Similarly, if Beau Monde Perfumes claims to have dispute with you, you will receive a written notice (on paper, delivered by the U.S. Postal Service, or other appropriate delivery service selected by Beau Monde Perfumes) about the dispute in order to facilitate resolution of the problem within a reasonable period of time, generally not to exceed 60 calendar days. Beau Monde Perfumes, at its discretion, may send the dispute notice with “proof of delivery”- type service in lieu of pursuing attempts to confirm that you have received the notice.

If attempts to resolve the dispute are not successful, should you or should Beau Monde Perfumes still decide to pursue further legal action, you agree that any and all disputes or claims that have arisen or may arise in the future between you and Beau Monde Perfumes shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration, rather than in court. Any legal action that you pursue against Beau Monde Perfumes, or that Beau Monde Perfumes pursues against you, must commence on or before the one year anniversary date of the earliest cause for complaint in connection with that particular legal action.

In the event of a dispute that involves your criminal behavior in connection with Beau Monde Perfumes (some examples: your deliberate use of a stolen credit card to purchase products; your deliberate issuance of a check payable to Beau Monde Perfumes that lacks sufficient funds to clear the payment, etc.), Beau Monde Perfumes reserves the right to pursue additional legal action(s) outside of binding arbitration to recover the amounts owed to Beau Monde Perfumes, as well as recovery of fees/costs in connection with the collection and/or enforcement of such legal action(s).

You agree that you may bring claims against Beau Monde Perfumes only on an individual basis, and not on any group or class basis; likewise Beau Monde Perfumes agrees to bring claims against you only on an individual basis, and not on any group or class basis. Unless both you and Beau Monde Perfumes agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate or join claims from more than one individual, may not preside over any group or class proceeding against Beau Monde Perfumes or against you, and may only award relief to the individual seeking relief. The arbitrator may award relief only to the extent needed to provide the relief sought by the individual’s claim.

You agree that Beau Monde Perfumes retains the right to select the arbitration service provider and venue. Arbitration may be conducted by the American Arbitration Association, or similar organization, using its rules, procedures, and other documented practices to conduct arbitration proceedings.

Arbitration proceedings will be conducted in the English language. Any documents generated by, used by, or referenced by the arbitrator or related to the arbitration proceedings shall be produced in the English language.

The arbitrator will decide the substance of all claims using the laws of the State of California, including recognized principles of equity, and will honor all claims of privilege recognized by law. The arbitrator shall not be bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving Beau Monde Perfumes adverse to different claimants, but is bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving Beau Monde Perfumes with you as individual claimant, to the extent required by applicable law. Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees will be governed by the arbitrator’s rules. In the event that the arbitrator decides in favor of Beau Monde Perfumes, you agree to reimburse Beau Monde Perfumes for all arbitration fees paid by Beau Monde Perfumes. The arbitrator’s decision(s) shall be final and binding, and any awards by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction to enforce such awards.

In the event that a claim is filed through binding arbitration, the Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Notice of Policies. If any provision in the Notice of Policies is deemed invalid, void, illegal, or for any reason unenforceable, such provision shall be deemed severable and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. If Beau Monde Perfumes makes changes concerning the use of arbitration in the future, such changes will not apply to claims filed with an arbitrator prior to the change. If Beau Monde Perfumes decides to terminate the use of arbitration, Beau Monde Perfumes will post an announcement about the change at www.Beaumondeperfumes.com in the Notice of Policies at least 30 days before the change takes effect.
