About Richemont and these Terms of Use

Richemont International S.A. has its registered offices at 50, chemin de la Chênaie, CH - 1293 Bellevue, Geneva, Switzerland. The websites and mobile applications (together the “Platforms”) are owned and edited by Richemont.

These terms of use (“Terms of Use”) govern your use of Richemont Platforms. In these Terms of Use, we use the term Richemont, "we", "us" and "our" to refer to the head office of Richemont International S.A. at the registered address above and its affiliates.

Please read these Terms of Use carefully before using the Platform. By using the Platform, you signify your assent and agreement to these Terms of Use.  If you do not agree to these Terms of Use, then you are not authorised to continue use of the Platform.  

Updates to these Terms of Use
We may make changes from time to time to these Terms of Use so please check back regularly to keep informed of updates. The latest version of these Terms of Use will always be available on the Platform. Any new version of these Terms of Use shall take effect and will govern the use of the Platform and your relationship with us immediately upon the date of posting. By continuing to use the Platform, you agree to be bound by the terms of these updates and amendments.

Our Privacy Notice
Our information collection practices on the Platforms, such as the types of information we collect regarding visitors to the Platforms, how it is hosted and the ways in which we may use that information, are governed by the terms of our Privacy Notice.

Use of materials on the Platforms
Richemont has created its various Platforms to provide information about its company for your personal use. You may download one computer copy or print one copy of the material made available to you via the Platforms, or download the Richemont’s application on to your mobile device, for your own non-commercial, educational, private or domestic use only, provided that proprietary notices, in particular intellectual property notices such as copyright©, trademark™ or ®, are preserved intact and are not modified, deleted or changed. Unless otherwise stated, you should assume that everything that you see or read on the Platforms (such as Richemont’s creations or products, images, photographs, including any person represented in the photographs, illustrations, icons, texts, video clips, music, written and other materials) ("Richemont Material") are owned by Richemont and protected by legislation such as copyright, designs and trademark legislation and under international treaty provisions and national laws worldwide.

You are not authorised to sell, reproduce, distribute, communicate, modify, display, publicly perform, report or otherwise prepare derivative or second hand works based on or use any Richemont Material in any way for any public or commercial purposes. Furthermore, the Richemont Material may not be displayed or communicated on any other platform, in a networked computer environment or on any other digital platform for any purpose whatsoever. In the event of breach of any of these Terms of Use, your permission to use Richemont Material will automatically terminate and any copies made of Richemont Material must be immediately destroyed. Any unauthorised use of Richemont Material may infringe copyright laws, design laws, trademark laws, the laws of privacy and publicity, and communications regulations and statutes.

Limitation of liability
Richemont tries to ensure that the information provided is accurate and complete. However, Richemont does not warrant or represent that the Richemont Material is accurate, error-free or reliable or that use of Richemont Material will not infringe rights of third parties.

Richemont does not warrant that the functional and/or technical aspects of the Platforms or the Richemont Material will be error free or that the Platforms, Richemont Material or the servers that make them available are free of viruses or other harmful components. If use of the Platforms or Richemont Material results in the need for servicing or replacing property, material, equipment, data or other element, Richemont is not responsible for those costs. Without limiting the foregoing, everything on the Platforms is provided to you "AS IS" AND "AS AVAILABLE" AND, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, SATISFACTORY QUALITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, REASONABLE CARE AND SKILL, OR NON-INFRINGEMENT. Richemont and its suppliers make no warranties about the Richemont Material, software, text, downloads, graphics, and links, or about results to be obtained from using the Platforms.

To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, Richemont shall not be liable for any indirect, incidental, special or consequential damages of any kind arising out of or in connection with the use of information available from the Platforms or any liability relating to any loss of use, interruption of business, lost profits or lost data, regardless of the form of action, whether in contract, tort (including negligence) or otherwise, even if Richemont has been advised of the possibility of such damages.

Please note that in some jurisdictions consumer protection laws may not allow certain exclusions or limitation of warranties or liabilities, and consequently some of the above exclusions and limitations may not apply.

Trademark notice
In general, all trademarks, logos and service marks (collectively the "Trademarks") that appear on the Platforms are registered, unregistered or otherwise protected Richemont trademarks or are licensed for use by Richemont by third parties. Other trademarks are proprietary marks and are registered to their respective owners. Nothing contained on the Platforms should be construed as granting, by implication or otherwise, any licence or right to use any trademark without Richemont’s prior written permission or that of such third party who owns the trademark. Misuse of any trademark displayed on the Platforms, or any other content on the Platforms, except as provided herein, is strictly prohibited.

Copyright notice
All content (including the Richemont Materials) on the Platforms are either Copyright © Richemont or are licensed for use by Richemont. All rights are reserved. Please refer to the section above on Use of Materials on the Platforms.

Links & linking
The Platforms may contain links to other platforms operated by third parties not affiliated to Richemont. The inclusion of any link to such third party sites does not imply endorsement by Richemont of those sites. Richemont has not reviewed all of the content contained in the linked sites and is not responsible for the content or accuracy of any off-site pages or any other sites linked to any of the Platforms. If you choose to click through any link to off-site pages or third party sites then this is at your own risk.

Richemont does not authorise linking to any of its Platforms from a third party platform without its express prior written authorisation.

Termination and suspension
You agree that Richemont may terminate or suspend your access to and use of the Platforms if Richemont reasonably believes that you have violated or acted inconsistently with the letter or spirit of these Terms of Use, or violated the rights of Richemont, its affiliated companies or any third party, with or without notice to you. You agree that Richemont may modify or discontinue providing any of the Platforms, with or without notice to you. You agree that Richemont will not be liable to you or any third party as a result of such modification or discontinuation. The provisions entitled "Limitation of liability" and "General provisions" will survive termination of these Terms of Use.

General provisions
Richemont makes no representation that the Richemont Material is appropriate or available for use in every country of the world. You are responsible for compliance with applicable local laws, keeping in mind that access to the Richemont Material may not be legal by certain persons or in certain countries.

If any provision, or part of a provision, of these Terms of Use is found to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable, that provision or part-provision shall be deemed not to form part of these Terms of Use, and the legality, validity or enforceability of the remainder of the provisions of these Terms of Use shall not be affected, unless otherwise required by operation of applicable law.

These Terms of Use constitute the entire agreement between you and us in relation to the use of the Platform, and replace and extinguish all prior agreements, draft agreements, arrangements, undertakings, or collateral contracts of any nature made by the parties, whether oral or written, in relation to such subject matter.

The waiver by Richemont of a breach of any provision of these Terms of Use will not operate to be interpreted as a waiver of any other or subsequent breach.

Applicable law and jurisdiction
These Terms of Use shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of Switzerland, without reference to conflict of laws provisions. Any dispute, controversy or claim arising out of or in relation to the Terms of Use, including the validity, invalidity, breach or termination thereof, shall be adjudicated or arbitrated in accordance with said Terms of Use.  Where the laws of Switzerland are different to the mandatory consumer laws in your own country, we will afford you with similar protection.
