The acquisition of a service via the Paris Events International (PEI) website constitutes, on the part of the purchaser, an acceptance without reserve of the present terms and conditions of sale.
Paris Events International (PEI) reserves the right to modify its terms and conditions at any time. The terms and conditions that apply are those in force at the date of the purchaser’s order.

– confirm their purchase order and payment.
Confirmation of the order constitutes acceptance of the present conditions of sale.
The information provided and the registered confirmation constitute proof of the transaction. The confirmation has the value of a signature and constitutes acceptance of the operations conducted.
Orders only become definitive when you receive a confirmation email from us and the price of the service or services to be provided has been paid in full. You will then receive an on-paper invoice that includes details of VAT along with information relating to your order: order form, vouchers, and the address and other contact details for the suppliers and the staff in charge of providing the service in question.
METHODS OF PAYMENT
Payment is due at the time the order is placed.
