Welcome to the Davincia® online boutique. Before you make your purchases, please read the terms and conditions, to which you implicitly agree when using this site.
These terms and conditions define the rights and obligations of the parties to transactions on the Davincia® site at davincia.ca. Clearly defined on the site, the terms and conditions are binding on the parties and cover every step, from placing to tracking orders.
The terms and conditions are exclusively for the end consumer, i.e. any person aged 18 and older not transacting as a retailer.
Davincia® reserves the right to adapt or modify the terms and conditions on its website at any time. We invite you to visit these pages periodically and review the terms and conditions in effect. Should the terms and conditions change, those in effect on the day an order is placed shall apply. In the event of a disputed transaction, the related computer data shall serve as proof.
Before placing an order, the client declares that they have the legal capacity to comply with these terms and conditions. Furthermore, Davincia® shall not be held responsible for the following:
• Temporary service interruptions or access problems. Nevertheless, in the event of website maintenance or updates, Davincia® will do everything possible to limit browsing difficulties.
• Unsatisfactory website performance for reasons beyond our control (unsuitable hardware, Internet traffic, etc.).
• Indirect damages, viruses, hacking, and loss of personal or other data entered on the site.
• Carrier shipping delays. Such delays do not give clients the right to claim damages.
• More broadly, any direct or indirect damages that occur during shipping.
Davincia® retains ownership of ordered products until full and final payment is made. The client becomes responsible for the order upon shipping and receipt.

Davincia® ensures that the information on its website is accurate and up to date, and therefore reserves the right to correct its content at any time and without notice. All errors are reviewed and addressed.
The listing of a product or service on the davincia.ca website does not mean that this product or service will be available at all times or indefinitely.
The davincia.ca website has been developed to promote Davincia® products and services and make it possible for clients to purchase them online. The site includes texts, information, descriptions, images, content and videos that are protected by trademarks and by copyright. It is prohibited to modify, use or reproduce the information or material on the site for public distribution or business purposes, or in any way that compromises privacy or contravenes the terms of this site. Any unauthorized use shall lead to consequences.
The accuracy of billing information, e.g. email address, billing or shipping address, and telephone number, is crucial. Davincia® cannot be held responsible for client errors or their effects on shipping times.
Prices are in Canadian dollars. Under Canadian law, the taxes charged on products purchased through davincia.ca depend on the shipping address. Clients in Quebec pay GST and QST. Clients in the rest of Canada pay GST and HST, where applicable.
Shipping charges will appear on the purchase order and be added to the bill. For more information about these charges, read the shipping and returns section.
Davincia® reserves the right to change its prices should costs increase, including taxes, or in the event of manifest error (incorrect information).
Davincia® retains ownership of the merchandise described in the sales document until full and final payment of the order. Final order confirmation is provided after confirmation of payment.
Secure online payment is used. Davincia® reserves the right to cancel any order for which payment is not authorized. Once authorization is received, an order confirmation email summarizing the purchased items and the billing/shipping address is sent to the client.
The client confirms all the information pertaining to orders placed on the davincia.ca website, i.e. items ordered, purchase price, applicable taxes and shipping costs, before the payment is processed.
By clicking Process Checkout, the client sends an offer to purchase the items described in the confirmation to Davincia®. In so doing, they agree to pay the purchase amount and to comply with the terms and conditions. Note that placing an order is not binding on the client until Davincia® accepts it and sends confirmation by email.
