IF YOU DO NOT INTEND TO ACCEPT THIS AGREEMENT AND EACH OF ITS TERMS, YOU MAY NOT USE THIS WEBSITE. YOU WILL BE REQUIRED TO ACCEPT THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT (AS SAME MAY BE AMENDED) EACH TIME YOU PLACE AN ORDER WITH US, AND IF YOU DO NOT ACCEPT THE TERMS YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO PLACE AN ORDER.

2. Amendments of these Terms and Conditions
3. Usage Rights

4. Offer and Acceptance of Product Purchases
Subject to your compliance with and acceptance of this Agreement, we invite you to place an order (“Order”) with us to order products (“Products”). For the avoidance of doubt, the presentation and display of Products in our online store does not constitute a legally binding offer from us. Vitra makes an effort to accurately describe and display the Products and their availability on the Website, but there may still be pricing inaccuracies, availability errors or specifications or Product display mistakes. Colors and textures of Products may be displayed differently on different computers and using different browsers. Accordingly, we do not guarantee the accuracy or completeness of the information on the Website, including prices, Product images, specifications, Product availability and other information. Vitra reserves the right to change or update information and to correct errors, inaccuracies, or omissions at any time without prior notice. We cannot guarantee that Products are in stock until shipped by us, which is evidence of Vitra’s acceptance of an Order or a portion of it. Your Order is considered to be an offer to Vitra to purchase the Products. After receipt of a relevant Order, Vitra, at its sole discretion, may accept or reject such Order. Vitra’s confirmation or acknowledgment of an Order means that your Order request has been received but it does not mean that your Order has been accepted or shipped or that the price or availability of a Product has been confirmed. As part of our shipping procedures, we verify the availability and the price before an item is shipped. In addition, all Orders are subject to our posted Return/Exchange and Shipping Information policies, which form a part of this Agreement, and are applicable to specific Products as of the time of purchase. If we determine that there were inaccuracies in our Product information (pricing, availability, Product description or specifications), we either will cancel your Order and notify you of such cancellation via email, or provide you with the corrected information via email and allow you to cancel or complete the Order. Prices displayed are quoted in U.S. Dollars, exclude shipping charges and, where applicable, sales tax, and are valid and effective only in the United States.
This Agreement shall take precedence over your (or your entity’s) additional or different terms and conditions, to which notice of objection is hereby given, unless we specifically agree to them in writing.
In order to interact with the Website (such as to place an order or open an account), you must create an account (“Account”) with Vitra through the online registration process.

b) You agree that we may charge your credit card or other applicable form of payment for any Products purchased and for any additional amounts (including any delivery fees, applicable taxes and associated bank fees) that may be accrued by or in connection with your Account. You are responsible for the timely payment of all fees and for providing us with a valid credit card or other form of payment for all fees. All fees will be billed to the credit card (or other applicable form of payment) you designate during the registration process. If you want to designate a different credit card or form of payment, then you are responsible for changing such information online in your Account. If your method of payment fails, Vitra may cancel the Order and/or may take steps to collect past due amounts using other collection mechanisms, including third party collection agencies. You will also be liable to Vitra for any expenses incidental to the collection of past due amounts, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and court costs. If Vitra cancels an Order or you are permitted to cancel an Order under Paragraph 3 above based on inaccurate pricing or Product descriptions on the Website, we will credit or refund the Purchase price of the Order.
