Once the online ordering procedure has been finalised by clicking on the "place order" button, the order is completed and can no longer be modified online. In addition, by clicking on this button, the customer confirms the accuracy of all the information provided and submits a binding purchase order to Alloboissons for the products ordered. Shortly after finalising the order, an email from Alloboissons provides a provisional automatic order confirmation, which constitutes acceptance of the purchase order by Alloboissons. Following your online order, the member service approves the order. If for reasons of unavailability or delivery time the order cannot be approved, Customer Service will contact you.

Only the confirmation verifies the establishment of a contractual link between the customer and Alloboissons.
