You may insert a hypertext link on your website to the EAU THERMALE AVENE L'HOTEL Website.
However, the creation of hypertext links to the Website requires the express, written and prior authorization of Thermes d'Avène. The absence of a reply from EAU THERMALE AVENE L'HOTEL may in no way be interpreted as its authorization.

EAU THERMALE AVENE L'HOTEL reserves the right to refuse the insertion of a hypertext link on your website and is not required to justify this decision.

The Website makes available to internet users forums in which contact can be made with or questions can be sent to:
All of the messages posted on these forums express the ideas of their respective authors (hereafter the "Users"). However, as the Website is responsible for the content of these spaces, the Website managers may therefore delete or simply not respond to messages that may be reprehensible, illegal or non-compliant with the present General Terms and Conditions of Use.

The Website reserves the right to publish or refuse to publish at its discretion your opinions or websites in its forums, to modify them, adapt them or translate them into any language in any form and on any media, to keep them online or delete them at any time, with no obligation to inform you thereof.
The Website's forums are moderated a posteriori by EAU THERMALE AVENE L'HOTEL.

EAU THERMALE AVENE L'HOTEL may take the initiative, without prior notice, to fully or partially delete any content posted in forums if this content may breach the laws and regulations in effect or contravene public morals.
The conditions under which a User is barred vary from case to case (seriousness of the comments, frequency of the disruption, profile, etc.).
Internet users who openly defend crimes against humanity, incite racial hatred or violence, infringe human dignity, engage in child pornography or repeatedly post advertising in discussion forums are automatically barred and their messages are erased without notice.
However, EAU THERMALE AVENE L'HOTEL generally endeavours to warn the relevant internet users before any sanction is applied.
Forum Users who may be startled, surprised or shocked by certain messages in the forums may send an email to the following address:
Users acknowledge the fact that EAU THERMALE AVENE L'HOTEL assumes responsibility only as a technical service provider, as defined in Article 6 of the "Law for Confidence in the Digital Economy (LCEN)", for the content produced by Users in the framework of forums, and, as such, that:

Each User is therefore invited to indicate, if possible, the sources and proof (references, links, a scientific article, medical or general press, etc.) of the medical and/or scientific information posted if it does not result from his/her personal experience when the statements made by the User are unambiguous in terms of the origin thereof.

VII-PAYMENT TERMS AND METHOD
At the time the Client makes a reservation, he/she will be automatically redirected to the RESERVIT reservation platform, which will allow him/her to securely finalize the reservation.
The offers presented on the website are subject to different terms of payment and reservation methods that will be clearly set out in the offer. These offers may include:
- Immediate payment with no possible reimbursement,
- A reservation requiring no prepayment that may be cancelled at no cost up to the day before the reserved date, failing which the first night will be debited,
- Payment of a deposit equal to 20% of the amount of the reservation, which will be reimbursed after cancellation, subject, in the case of Spa Client packages, to the provision of a medical certificate stating that the Spa Therapy is contraindicated.
For prepayment via RESERVIT, the Client will provide his/her bank information, credit card or debit card (Carte Bleue, Visa, Mastercard) by directly indicating in the space provided for this purpose (secure entry of information via SSL security technology) the card number, with no spaces between the numbers, as well as the expiry date and visual cryptogram.
EAU THERMALE AVENE L'HOTEL has chosen RESERVIT in order to secure online credit and debit card payments. RESERVIT checks the validity of the Client's credit or debit card. The card may be refused for a number of reasons: it may be stolen or blocked; the limit may have been reached; there may have been an entry error, etc. If a problem arises, the Client must contact his/her bank and EAU THERMALE AVENE L'HOTEL to confirm the reservation and payment method.
The Client must pay for the various additional services and taxes on site before his/her departure.
If the Client does not pay the balance of the services on site before leaving, the hotel reserves the right to directly debit the sums due from the credit or debit card whose information was provided either at the time the deposit was made or upon arrival at the hotel, which the Client expressly accepts. In this case, late payment penalties will be due as of the day after the invoice payment date at the rate of 15% per year, applied to the total amount of the invoice, including tax. Furthermore, a flat-rate penalty equal to 15% of the sums due will be owed in the event of a legal collection procedure.
Except in the case of a prepaid offer not eligible for reimbursement, if the Client's stay is interrupted, he/she must pay for all services used at the applicable rate.
With regard to Spa Therapy packages, the deposit equal to 20% of the amount of the stay will be reimbursed subject to the provision of a medical certificate indicating that the Spa Therapy is contraindicated.
The Client is reminded that, in accordance with Article L. 121-21-8 12° of the French Consumer Code, he/she does not have the right to withdraw defined in Article L. 121-21 of the French Consumer Code.
The terms and conditions of sale for the rate reserved indicate the terms that apply to a cancellation and/or modification of the reservation.

XI-Stay at the hotel
The Client agrees and undertakes to use the Room with care. Any behaviour that is contrary to public morals and order will cause the hotel to ask the Client to leave the premises with no compensation or reimbursement if payment has already been made. If no payment has been made, the Client must pay for the nights he/she stayed before leaving the premises.
Each room has a Nespresso coffee-maker, a “welcome” tray, a mini bar, a cupboard, a telephone with a direct line, TV with French and foreign channels, free Wi-Fi access, a USB outlet, an international electrical outlet, a safe, an iron and an ironing board. Three of the 56 Rooms are wheelchair-friendly.
EAU THERMALE AVENE L'HOTEL offers free Wi-Fi access so that Clients can connect to the internet.

If the Client does not comply with these obligations, he/she may be charged with the offence of infringement (Article L. 335-3 of the Intellectual Property Code) and runs the risk of a fine of €300,000 and three years of imprisonment.
