The Customer acknowledges having taken note of these general conditions of sale and use prior to the validation of his/her/its order. The validation of the order equates to acceptance of the general conditions of sale without restriction by the Customer. The general conditions of sale applicable are those in force on the day of the order.

La Maison Gainsbourg reserves the right to amend these general conditions of sale and use at any time, particularly in event of a regulatory change.

La Maison Gainsbourg is made up of different places, access to which is subject to an entrance fee (hereafter the “Spaces“). Theses Spaces are:

-       La Maison Gainsbourg (Serge Gainsbourg’s house), located at 5 bis rue de Verneuil, Paris (hereafter “The House”)

-       The museum, located at 14-16 rue de Verneuil, Paris (hereafter the “Museum”)

The catering space located at 14 rue de Verneuil, Paris (hereafter the “Le Gainsbarre”) is accessible to the public irrespective of access to The House and/or the Museum. However, some events organised by Lethe Gainsbarre are subject to an entrance fee.

Article 1: Characteristics of the entrance fees

The Site offers the sale of entrance fees to visit the Spaces. Each entrance fee is documented by a digital ticket issued under the conditions described below.

Entrance fee to visit the Spaces

There are two possible entrance fees:

- “Combined””House and Museum” combined  ticket;
- “Museum only” ticket.

These tickets are only valid on the chosen day, at the chosen time, for a single entrance per Space.
The Combined ticket gives access to a visit to The House and then one to the Museum, exclusively in that order, and the Museum ticket gives access solely to a visit to the Museum (hereafter the “Visits").

Entrance fee for events organised within Le Gainsbarre

The entrance fee for a show, a concert, the showing of a film, a workshop, a conference visit or any other event organised within Le Gainsbarre gives access solely to the space where the relevant event is taking place.

Sales of the tickets defined above are processed up to the limit of the quotas available.

Article 2: Gift Card

The Site also offers the sale of gift cards allowing their beneficiaries to pay for their ticket purchases, on one or more occasions, by additionally, if necessary, using another payment method available online (the “Gift Card").

The Gift Card allows only ticketing products to be purchased on the Site in accordance with the availabilities indicated. It is documented in the form of a digital voucher containing a unique code made up of several characters.

Every Gift Card purchased on the Site is sent to the Client by email upon validation of the payment. The Customer alone is responsible for sending it to the beneficiary of his/her choice, with it being made clear that Gift Cards are not for a named individual and that any person who has a Gift Card is deemed to be its legal owner.

A Gift Card is valid for twelve (12) months from its date of purchase.

An order can be paid for with the Gift Card up to the amount of the Gift Card, until the balance has been used up or the validity period has ended. The Gift Card cannot be exchanged, amended or reimbursed. Information relating to the balance on the Gift Card and its validity date can be viewed online from the personal space of the Customer that purchased the Gift Card.

Article 3: Purchasing terms and conditions - Prices and payment methods

Available tickets are exclusively on sale online on the Site.

The Customer must log into the Site, choose a service provision and a date, with it being made clear that any ticket purchase involves the creation of a personal space or connection to an existing space. As part of the creation of an account, the Customer must provide the information needed for his/her/its identification and particularly his/her/its email address. The Customer will be allocated a login and a password and it is his/her/its responsibility to keep them strictly confidential.

The Customer then pays for the tickets chosen by using either a bank card or a Gift Card, plus, where applicable, a bank card payment.

The bank cards accepted are those expressly indicated on the Site. Maison Gainsbourg's online sales system uses the Sécutix solution and the Ingénico/Ogone secure payment service falling under the SSL protocol and the PCI DSS standard. As part of the payment, the Customer provides the information relating to his/her/its bank card via the aforementioned payment service, with it being made clear that this information is not, at any time, communicated to Maison Gainsbourg. Any fraudulent use of the Customer's payment card falls under the contractual provisions agreed between the customer and the banking institution that issued the card.

Payment by a Gift Card requires the communication of the unique code indicated on it, which must be entered in the "gift voucher" box just before accessing payment of the order.

Once payment is made, a confirmation email is sent to the Customer, at the address provided when creating his/her/its personal space, containing either the ticket or a link allowing him/her/it to print his/her/its tickets from his/her/its personal space. The Customer will also receive, by email, his/her/its customer bank card receipt sent by the Ingénico/Ogone secure payment service.

The price of the tickets is indicated on the Site in euros inclusive of all taxes and management fees. The applicable price is the price in force on the date of the order.

Orders can only be paid for in euros. The tariffs and rights to reduction or free entry are indicated on the Site.

Any payment method not provided for in the general conditions will be refused by Maison Gainsbourg.

Maison Gainsbourg reserves the right to change the prices and accepted payment methods at any time.

Article 4: Obtaining tickets

The tickets are digital and can be printed by the Customer or are accessible from a mobile device that has Internet access.

No ticket, previously purchased by the Customer, may be printed, on site, by Maison Gainsbourg's teams.

The tickets are available in the Customer's personal space once the payment of his/her order has been validated.

Article 5: Conditions for using the tickets

The tickets are only valid for the day and the time indicated on the ticket and they cannot in any way be used for another date or another time. All tickets are systematically checked at a Space's entrance by the scanning of the QR code inscribed on the ticket. The first ticket presented invalidates the copies which might be presented subsequently as each ticket only gives the right to a single entry. Any exit from the Space is definitive.

The ticket is personal and non-transferable. The ticket must be kept until the end of the service provision and it may be checked at any time. To be validated, the ticket must be presented either on a mobile device shown by the ticket holder or printed in portrait (vertical) mode, with no modification to the print size on a white A4 sheet of paper, blank on both sides. The QR code and the notices must be perfectly legible.

Any partially printed, soiled, damaged or illegible ticket will not be accepted.

Only the documents on the currently valid list indicated on the Site are accepted to justify the free entry or the reduction.

During their visit, Customers must not under any circumstances inconvenience other visitors.

Ticket holders are forbidden from selling or distributing any product or article whatsoever inside La Maison Gainsbourg.

If rescheduling is impossible, the Customer may be reimbursed.

The sale of tickets for a visit to the Spaces at the conditions stipulated in these General Conditions corresponds to a leisure activity which must be provided on a specific date or period as defined in the provisions of Article of the L.221-28 French Consumer Code. In this regard, the Customer does not have the benefit of any right of withdrawal.

A Customer that has purchased a Gift Card has the benefit of any right of withdrawal which he/she/it can exercise within a period of fourteen calendar days from the date of receipt of the corresponding Gift Card, without having to justify the reasons or pay penalties.

The right of withdrawal must be exercised by the Customer within the aforementioned period, using the form appended to this document or by any other unambiguous declaration, expressing his/her/its wish to withdraw, sent by post to: Maison Gainsbourg, Service Réclamations, 14 rue de Verneuil, 75 007 Paris.

The sums paid will be reimbursed via the payment method used by the Customer for the initial transaction.

In the event that the Gift Card is used by the Customer or the beneficiary before the expiry of the aforementioned withdrawal period, the Customer is deemed to have expressly waived the right of withdrawal.
