These General Conditions for Rental, the indications on the VOUCHER, those on the ORDER when it is accepted by SKISET, as well as the related INVOICE constitute the only contractual agreements between SKISET and the RENTER.

The RENTER is hereby clearly informed and acknowledges that the WEBSITE is intended for consumers and that professionals should contact the SKISET sales department in order to benefit from different contractual conditions.

Article 3: Characteristics of the General Conditions for Rental

These General Conditions for Rental do not, under any circumstances, confer to the RENTER the capacity of employee, proxy, agent or representative of SKISET.

Moreover, the PARTIES hereby declare that these General Conditions for Rental cannot under any circumstances be considered as a declaration of legal status of any legal person or entity, and that any form of intention to cooperate in a partnership and right to supervise its administration is formally excluded from their relations.

Article 4: Acceptance and modification of the General Conditions for Rental

The RENTER carefully reads and agrees to these conditions before paying any ORDER placed on the WEBSITE.

These General Conditions for Rental are referenced at the bottom of each page of the WEBSITE by means of a link and should be consulted before placing an order. The RENTER is asked to carefully read, download and print the General Conditions and to keep a copy.

SKISET recommends that the RENTER reads the General Conditions for each new ORDER. The latest version of the said Conditions is applicable to all new ORDERS.

By clicking on the first button to place the ORDER then on the second to confirm the said ORDER, the RENTER acknowledges having read, understood, and agreed to the General Conditions without restriction or condition.

The General Conditions for Rental are applicable for the entire duration of the period that the ARTICLES are on line.

SKISET can modify them at any moment. These modifications are effective immediately after they are placed on the WEBSITE.

Only the General Conditions for Rental published the day of the ORDER are applicable to them. They are brought to the knowledge of the RENTER and agreed to by them at the time of the ORDER.

Article 5: Account

Placing an ORDER presupposes the creation of an ACCOUNT for processing the ORDER and therefore the required agreement with the General Conditions of the WEBSITE.

Article 6: The parties’ obligations

6.1: The renter’s obligations

To enable SKISET to accomplish their obligations under the best possible conditions, the RENTER agrees to:

  • Compliance with all the applicable laws and rules as well as these General Conditions for Rental;
  • Notify SKISET of any information of which they might have knowledge and which might have an impact on the execution of the AGREEMENT between the Parties;
  • Provide the VOUCHER when collecting ARTICLES;

6.2: SKISET'S obligations

>SKISET agrees to do everything in their power to rent the ARTICLES under the conditions mentioned in these General Conditions for Rental.

Article 7: The articles

Every effort is made to ensure that the pictures of the ARTICLES that appear on the WEBSITE are exactly those of the original ARTICLES.

Nevertheless, please remember that SKISET rents ARTICLES and does not manufacture them. Therefore, SKISET is not responsible for differences over which it has no control or for minor differences.

The RENTER can reserve:

  • Either from a category of ARTICLES indicated on the WEBSITE and in this document as the "STANDARD OFFER";
  • Or from a choice of a particular model of an ARTICLE referred to in this document as the "SELECTION OFFER".

on condition that the RENTER indicates their size, shoe size and weight.

Each SKISET shop can choose the SELECTION OFFER. The RENTER is therefore informed that this offer is not available in all the SKISET shops that are on the WEBSITE.

Since the SKISET SELECTION OFFER is based on a choice by model, it is available on reservation up to 7 days prior to collection of the article.

The SELECTION OFFER provides the RENTER with:

  • An exclusive selection of that year's models of skis;
  • The possibility to choose the desired model of skis;
  • The assurance for the renter of being provided with an article from a superior model in case the selected ARTICLE is not available, or at least to have the benefit of a model that is equivalent to the one they ordered.

In fact, SKISET cannot predict whether or not the previous RENTERS will return the equipment. ARTICLES might be damaged, lost or stolen. This is why, as far as possible, SKISET agrees to provide the RENTER with an article from a superior model if they cannot obtain the model they ordered on line.

THE SKISET EXPRESS OFFER:

SKISET EXPRESS is a service for quick collection of ARTICLE(S).

The option is available at a selection of SKISET shops. The RENTER can choose this option by ticking off the corresponding box before validating the ORDER. The RENTER agrees to provide all the information required to prepare the ARTICLE(S), i.e.: the sizes, shoe sizes, weight and head circumferences of all the persons concerned in the ORDER. Without this information within the given deadline, the option is automatically cancelled.

Article 8: ORDER

The (*) sign indicates the required fields which must be filled out for the RENTER’S order to be processed by SKISET. The RENTER can verify the status of their order on the WEBSITE.

The RENTER agrees to carefully read the ORDER summary, which he can modify at any moment before clicking on the "PAY" button.

The RENTER then chooses their payment method and proceeds with payment. The RENTER may be sent to a secured payment platform that enables online payment.

Upon confirmation by the RENTER, the ORDER shall be sent to SKISET for processing. SKISET shall send an acknowledgement of receipt by e-mail to the RENTER, on receipt of the ORDER.

The RENTER shall receive an e-mail informing them whether or not the reservation and availability of the selected ARTICLE(S) were confirmed. If the availability of the ARTICLES is confirmed, if applicable, SKISET shall send the RENTER an e-mail confirming the ORDER with:

    • - the date and time of collection of the ARTICLE;
    • - the date and time of return of the ARTICLE;
    • - the list of ARTICLES rented and their characteristics;

These expenses correspond to costs deducted exclusively by the RENTER’S banking institution, if any, as a result of using the bank card.

If the amount of the "cheque vacances" is greater than the booking amount, CFLS cannot refund the difference to the customer.

If the "cheque vacances" is not received at least five (5) days prior to collection of the ARTICLE(S) ordered by the RENTER, payment for rental of the equipment must be made solely by bank card.

When making a payment, the RENTER is automatically connected to the payment processing centre's server. Bank data, protected by encryption do not transit through CILS systems and are therefore not stored by them.
