It is up to the Customer to select on the website eric-bompard.com the Products they wish to order, in the following manner: 

3-1 - Selection of Articles by the Customer

3-6 - The right to refuse an order

ERIC BOMPARD reserves the right to cancel any order made where there exists prior dispute(s) with the Purchaser or in the event of total or partial non-payment of a previous order by the Customer or where a technical problem has led to the affixing of a “derisory” price to a product when compared to its reference price (the reference price of a model is the catalogue price for the current collection). 

ERIC BOMPARD is not in the business of selling its articles via the website eric-bompard.com to professionals, but only to consumers or non-professionals for their personal use.

ERIC BOMPARD thus reserves the right to refuse any unusual order for the same article(s) in large quantities, which is not consistent with the pursuit of non-commercial objectives.
