3. Purpose and description of the - website
3.1 The reservation site is published by the Tourist Office of Haute Maurienne Vanoise referred to as "HMVT", an SPL (public limited company) whose business is the marketing of tourist services and holidays. HMVT is registered as a travel and holiday operator under number IM073170012. HMVT has taken out a financial guarantee with Groupama Assurance - Crédit & Caution - 126, rue de la Piazza - 93199 Noisy-Le-Grand Cédex-, as well as insurance under the conditions stipulated by the French Tourism Code, with MAIF - 200 avenue Salvador Allende - CS 90 000 - 79038 Niort cedex 9 - France. HMVT's full contact details are available on its website and are reproduced below:
Head office: 6, Rue Napoléon - France.
Telephone: 04 79 05 99 10

3.2 Through the Site, HMVT provides an online reservation platform for services/products, offered and marketed to Users on the Site by partner Providers.

3.3 This is a "tourism marketplace" managed by means of communication gateways and "Open System" technology, developed by the simplified joint stock company under French law "ALLIANCE RESEAUX" (whose registered office is located at Rue Saint Exupéry, 26, 73300 Saint Jean-de-Maurienne - France, registered with the Clerk of the Commercial Court of CHAMBERY under number 393953278).

3.4 The Site is intended to be a general interest tool made available to partner Providers to enable them to broadcast and sell, in real time, their offers of tourist services/products and leisure activities available.

3.5 The tourist services/products offered by our partners on the Site are exclusively provided and managed by and under the responsibility of the said partners, in application of their own general sales conditions. It is therefore up to the User to take note of the general terms and conditions of sale of each partner supplier of the services/products desired, before any definitive reservation is made on the Site.

3.6 By making a reservation through, the User enters into a direct contractual relationship with the partner Service Provider concerned by the reservation.

3.7 However, HMVT offers on the Site to the Users, in its name and for its own account, services and/or products.

3.8 In this case, the services and/or products offered by HMVT on the Site are exclusively provided and managed by and under its sole responsibility. They are therefore subject, in addition to these terms and conditions of use, to HMVT's general terms and conditions of sale applicable to the package and ticketing offered and available on the Site.

3.9 It should be noted that in the latter case, HMVT contracts directly with the User. This being the case, it is directly to HMVT that the User must address any question or complaint concerning his reservation, or for any request to modify or cancel his reservation according to the instructions and conditions indicated in the general sales conditions of HMVT specific to the services and/or products.

3.10 The tourism services/products offered on the Site are only available for private use and are not intended for commercial use in connection with any commercial or competitive activity or purpose.

4. Online contracting process applicable to all tourism services/products
4.1 The User of the Site who books/purchases any of the tourist services and products offered must be at least 18 years of age, legally capable of entering into a contract on his/her own and use the Site in accordance with the general terms and conditions of use in force at the time of the final confirmation of his/her booking.

4.2 The online reservation process on the Site consists of four steps, namely:
Step 1: via the "add to cart" tab, selection by the User of the desired service(s)/product(s) in order to place them in his/her cart;
Step 2: once the content of the basket is finalized, the User validates his order,
Step 3: the User enters his personal information in the mandatory fields of the reservation form (name, first name, address...) and validates the information entered. The User accepts without reserve the present general terms of use of the Site and the general terms of sale specific to each service/product of the validated basket, and proceeds to the payment for the services to be paid online by entering and confirming his/her bank details for the purpose of paying the full price due through the secure online payment system set up on the Site, or sends the online pre-booking. The payment is then made directly with the Seller according to the general sales conditions of the latter.

4.3 The User's attention is drawn to the fact that the personal information provided by the User in the online reservation form is transmitted to the Provider concerned by the reservation.

4.4 At the end of the fourth step of the online contracting process, the reservation made by the User becomes firm, subject to confirmation by the Provider concerned of the desired availability.

4.5 Indeed, the Provider's availability is displayed in real time on the Site on the basis of information communicated by the Provider. However, this information is only indicative given the transactions that may be carried out simultaneously via the different marketing channels (websites, telephone, e-mail). In case of double booking, the Provider concerned will contact the User in order to settle the problem amicably, or even to refund the User.

4.6 The Provider of the booked service/product then sends (automatically via the Open System) to the User a confirmation e-mail containing the booked services (in the body of the e-mail or as an attachment), the price, the User's address, as well as the special conditions, which are specific to the Providers and the bookings.

4.7 The e-mail confirming the reservation is sent by the Provider (automatically via the Open System) to the e-mail address provided by the User in the reservation form. It is therefore the User's responsibility to ensure that the contact information provided in the reservation form is correct.

4.8 If the User does not receive a confirmation e-mail of his/her reservation, it is his/her responsibility to contact the relevant Provider directly.

5. Absence of right of withdrawal for certain products
In accordance with article L221-28 of the French Consumer Code, the right of withdrawal cannot be exercised for contracts for the provision of accommodation services, other than residential accommodation, goods transportation services, car rentals, catering or leisure activities that are to be provided on a specific date or period.

6. Modification or cancellation of a reservation
6.1 Any reservation made on the Site, once confirmed, cannot be modified online later by the User, hence the importance for the User to verify, before any final confirmation, that the information he/she provides is accurate and complete.

6.2 Any request for changes must be made directly to the relevant Partner Provider in accordance with the instructions given in the booking confirmation e-mail. The change request will be processed by the Partner Provider according to its own terms and conditions.

6.3 In principle, the User also has the right to cancel a reservation made on the Website. The cancellation must be made with the Provider within the prescribed time limits and according to the terms and conditions set out in the general terms and conditions of sale of the partner provider concerned, as accepted by the User during the reservation process on the Site.
6.4 Any refund of sums paid by the User on the Site at the time of booking, which would be due to him following a cancellation or a modification of his booking, is the responsibility of the Partner Provider concerned in accordance with its general conditions of sale.

6.5 The User is also informed that the cancellation of a reservation may result in charges according to the applicable general sales conditions of the Provider. It is also possible that in certain cases (special offers, packages, promotions...), the User may not be entitled to a refund of the sums paid on the Site, from the Partner Provider concerned in the event of cancellation of the reservation.

6.6 It is therefore the User's responsibility to read the general terms and conditions of sale of the relevant Partner Provider, in addition to these general terms and conditions of use, before making a reservation. As a reminder, when making a reservation, the User is invited, during the reservation process, to read these general terms and conditions of use and the general terms and conditions of sale of the Provider concerned, and to accept them by ticking the corresponding box, without which the reservation process cannot be continued.

7. Rates
7.1 The prices of the services and products offered on the Site are indicated in euros and include all taxes, unless otherwise expressly mentioned on the Site or in the reservation confirmation e-mail.

7.2 The prices displayed on the Site are those charged by the partner Providers on the various marketing channels (except for occasional promotions offered directly by the Provider as part of a particular action).

7.3 The rates are subject to possible changes by the Partner Providers. They are updated on the Site as and when the rates are modified by the Partner Providers.

7.4 In any case, the rates charged to the User are those charged by the Partner Provider at the date of the final confirmation of the reservation by the User on the Site.

7.5 All special/promotional offers are marked as such.

8. Payment
8.1 The secure payment system offered on the Platform is provided by One Shot Pay.
One Shot Pay processes payments made by Internet users (the "Buyers") on behalf of the service providers (the "Sellers").
One Shot Pay acts exclusively as a payment service provider. As such, the Sellers are solely responsible for the contract and the execution of their services towards the Buyers.

NB: some vendors may be equipped with online payment solutions such as Paypal or Paybox.
8.2 Any modification made by the User to his/her reservation, after final validation on the Website (number of persons, additional service...), resulting in a price supplement or additional costs for the User, must be paid directly by the User to the Provider concerned.

9. Personal data
9.1 The information and data concerning you are necessary for the management of your order and for our commercial relations. HMVT guarantees the preservation of your privacy and undertakes to process the personal data collected in strict compliance with the legal provisions in force.

10. Responsibility of HMVT
10.1 As stated above in point 3.6, HMVT only acts as an intermediary between the User and the Provider. Therefore, HMVT shall not be liable for any damage caused to the User, resulting directly or indirectly from: the total or partial non-performance of the contract concluded directly between the User and the Provider, to which HMVT is a third party;

10.2 HMVT will not be held responsible for any damage caused to the User resulting, directly or indirectly, from errors made by the User when entering the personal information requested in the reservation form, or from the fraudulent use of the User's credit card by a third party.

10.3 HMVT cannot be held responsible for the links to other sites, as it has no control over the content of these sites. Consequently, HMVT cannot be held responsible for the content, advertising, products, services or any other tool available on or from these external sites or sources that it has neither verified nor approved, nor can it be held responsible for any damage resulting from or related to the use of these links.

11.2 This being the case, the User of the Website is prohibited from reproducing, modifying, exploiting, integrating or using in any way whatsoever, all or part of the content of the Website and the information collected therein without the express prior written authorization of HMVT.
