The present terms and conditions govern the contractual relationship between Light of Life Award and its client, and the two parties accept them without reservation. These terms and conditions will prevail over all other conditions appearing in any other document, except preliminary, express and written exemption.

The submission of an image to the site www.lightoflifeaward.com is permanent and the amount paid cannot be refunded, as provided by law for download products. Each payment is definitive.

  1. Order

The automatic registration systems are held as proof of the nature, content and date of the order. Light of Life Award confirms the acceptance of the client’s participation in Light of Life Award’s Prize for photography at the email address that has been provided.

Light of Life Award reserves the right not to consider any entries that do not comply with the criteria set out in the rules.

The information given by the buyer when placing an order is binding: in the event of an error in the buyer’s address, the seller cannot be held responsible for the inability to deliver the product. Each order is definitive and firm.

  1. Price

The price is expressed in euros. The price given in the order confirmation is definitive, expressing all taxes included as well as the VAT for France and the countries of the European Union. If the VAT rate is changed, this change may be reflected in the price of the items without the customer being informed.

  1. Payment

The price charged to the customer is the price given in the order confirmation sent to Light of Life Award. The price of the products is payable in cash on the day of actual participation. Payment can be made by credit card. The credit card number of the customer is secured by Paypal and Stripe, and payment is made in a secure environment. The order confirmed by the customer will be considered effective only when the bank payment centers concerned have given their agreement. In case of refusal by the said centers, participation will be automatically canceled and the customer will be notified by email.

In addition, Light of Life Award reserves the right to forbid the participation of any customer with whom there is a dispute.

  1. Legal Disputes

The present contract is subject to French law. Light of Life Award cannot be held liable for damages of any kind, whether material or immaterial.

Whatever the case may be, the responsibility of Light of Life Award will be limited to the set amount and cannot be blamed for simple errors or omissions that may have persisted despite the precautions taken in the presentation of the products. In case of difficulties in the application of the present contract, the buyer has the option, before taking court action, to seek an amicable solution including with the aid of a professional association of the branch, a consumer association or any other advice chosen. It is emphasized that the search for an amicable solution does not interrupt the “short time” of the legal guarantee, nor the duration of the contractual guarantee. It is emphasized that as a general rule and subject to the discretion of the court, compliance with the provisions of this contract relating to the contractual guarantee assumes that the buyer honors its financial commitments to the seller. Complaints or disputes will always be received with good will, always assuming the good faith of whoever takes the trouble to expose his or her situation. In case of a dispute, the customer will first contact the company to obtain an amicable solution. Otherwise, the Commercial Court of Annecy is the only option, regardless of the place of delivery and method of payment accepted.

  1. Guarantee

Light of Life Award cannot be held responsible for compliance with the regulations and laws in force in the country of delivery. The responsibility of Light of Life Award is limited to the value of the product involved at its date of sale, without recourse to the brand or company that produced the product. In this case, the customer benefits from the legal guarantee of eviction and hidden defects (Art.1625 and following of the Civil Code). Provided that the participant can prove the hidden defect, the seller is legally bound to make reparations for all consequences (Article 1641 and following of the Civil Code); if the buyer goes to court, he or she must do so within a “short time” of the discovery of the hidden defect (art.1648 of the Civil Code).

  1. Legal Information

It is obligatory to provide the personal information collected for the purposes of remote transactions, because this information is essential for the treatment and routing of the orders, for the establishment of the invoices and for contracts of guarantee. Without this information the order is invalid. In accordance with the law “Informatique et Libertés”, the processing of personal information relating to customers has been declared to the Commission Nationale Informatique et Libertés (CNIL). The customer has a right (article 34 of the law of January 6, 1978) to access, modify, rectify and delete data concerning him or her, a right which he or she can exercise with Light of Life Award. In addition, Light of Life Award promises not to communicate, freely or otherwise, details about its customers to third parties.
