Ariane Poulon will respond by e-mail within a few days to discuss and establish the terms of the Services provision. The Client may be required to fill a more detailed form (information on the company, the SEO situation, the competitors, etc). The Client must confirm their acceptance of the quote and the Service Agreement and then pay a 50% deposit to validate the order. Once validated, the order may only be modified with the prior written consent of Ariane Poulon. Upon receipt of payment of the deposit, Ariane Poulon will send the Client a confirmation e-mail summarizing the characteristics and the total price of the order, as well as a paid deposit invoice. The Contractor or her payment service providers may request additional supporting documents from the Client to combat fraud. The order may therefore be canceled if the Client’s refuses without justification to issue these documents. The Contractor also reserves the right to cancel the order if the Client provides incorrect information, does not pay the deposit, if there is a dispute related to a previous order or if the order level is abnormally high.
If the Service is provided immediately, a deposit of 50% of the total price of the Services is due from the Client on the day of signing the Service Agreement, the remaining balance is to be paid within 7 days of the provision of the Services. If the Service is provided successively, the price is due and payable at the beginning of each contractual period. The current price is indicated in euros on the quote, but Ariane Poulon reserves the right to modify the price without notice, as long as the Client has not signed the quote. Once the quote is signed, the price can’t be changed during the period of execution of the Services but the Contractor may modify the prices for Services subscribed during a future order. For Services that are provided successively, the price may be modified at any time and will be applicable to the next contractual period if the Client does not terminate before it takes effect. Any task (urgent or not) added after the quote has been signed will incur additional costs for the Client. Any price reductions may apply under certain conditions, the Contractor undertakes to apply this discount to any order placed during the promotion period. In the event of early payment by the Client, no discount will be applied. If the Client suspends their payments or grants themselves compensation without the prior written consent of Ariane Poulon, it will be considered as non-payment. In the event of late payment, the Contractor may demand immediate payment of all sums due and apply from the first day of delay penalties of 3 times the legal interest rate, without any compensation being due to the Client. The Client will also have to pay a fixed compensation of €40 for recovery costs for each invoice paid late. If the Client hasn’t paid 7 days after formal notice, the Contractor will ban the Client from accessing the Services and if the Client wishes to place a new order, the Contractor may refuse it or require full upfront payment.
- Transfer : the details of the account for the transfer will appear on the quote and the invoice, as well as the reference to indicate in the transfer order.
