The Contract only becomes final, and L’Echo des Montagnes will only be obliged to execute it, once the Client has returned to L’Echo des Montagnes the general terms and the special terms relating to the Contract, duly dated, signed and bearing the mention «Accepted». In the event that one or other of such documents has not been returned, signed and accepted by the Client, these general terms of sale are applicable immediately upon the Client's written confirmation of its reservation.
