E-Commerce Practices

Dinner In Provence is an online business which engages in various ecommerce business models and revenue streams in order to sustain its continued existence, growth and service to our community. Other than digital information products and personal services which are the property of Le Vieux Jardin, LLC, much of our online shop contains external links to products for sale by 3rd party ecommerce sites. We curate and recommend these products because we believe they are useful to our readers. When a reader chooses to purchase a 3rd party product, they will be linked to that 3rd party site in order to complete their transaction. Dinner In Provence is not liable for product unavailability, product changes, or pricing changes on any 3rd party site. Further, we are not responsible for any privacy or data breaches including personal or payment information that arises as a result of interactions with any 3rd party site we link to.

The only exception is the guarantees of satisfaction and graduation that are clearly labeled guarantees within our site or products. Neither we nor any of our respective licensors or suppliers warrant that any functions contained in the site will be uninterrupted or error-free, that defects will be corrected, or that the site or the server that makes them available are free of viruses or other harmful components.
