6.1 Step one: the customer selects the items he/she wishes to buy
On the Website, the customer selects, registers and validates the identification and quantity of the items that he/she wishes to order (whose availability will be confirmed, if this is the case, by the Company); these items will be added to his/her "Shopping Bag".
6.2 Step two: verification of the items selected
The customer may freely modify online his/her "Shopping Bag " containing the items selected, remove an item initially selected, modify the quantities ordered or alternatively add an item by clicking on the corresponding elements placed at his/her disposal in the "Shopping Bag ". The price of the items selected will be automatically displayed in the "Shopping Bag ", as defined below in Article 8.
6.3 Step three: confirmation of the items selected and validation of the order
Once the customer has made his/her selection and wishes to validate the contents of his/her "Shopping Bag ", he/she must next identify himself/herself:
- If he/she has an account on the Website: by his/her email address (user ID) and password;
- If he/she does not have an account on the Website: by his/her name, address of usual residence to which the order will be invoiced to him/her, telephone number.
The customer must also validate:
- the delivery address for the order, it being noted that the said address may correspond to the usual place of residence in the United States, of a third party beneficiary chosen by the customer or, failing this, the address of the company in which the third party beneficiary pursues his/her professional activity if this is located in the same territory;
- the dispatch method opted for (express or standard post), standard carriage costs being borne by the Company;
- and, lastly, the chosen payment method.
Once all this information has been duly recorded and validated, the price of the items, as defined below in Article 8, and the carriage costs, if any, will be automatically displayed.
After communicating the number of his/her credit card, in accordance with the provisions of Article 9 below, the customer must then click on the "VALIDATE MY PAYMENT" button in order to debit his/her bank account.
The authorization to debit his/her bank account issued by the customer's bank will then be displayed. The customer is advised to register and/or make a print-out of this debit authorization. Once the customer's bank has authorized the debiting of his/her bank account, his/her "Shopping Bag " will be directly forwarded to the Company department responsible for preparing orders; the customer will then see his/her order number displayed.
This order will be binding on the customer as from the time when the "Shopping Bag ", duly filled and validated by the display of the registration page for the order, is received by the Company.
6.4 Step four: the Company's acknowledgement of receipt of the order
The Company will then acknowledge having received the order by means of an email sent to the email address communicated by the customer. The customer formally agrees to the Company's using an email for the purpose of confirming the content of his/her order.
This confirmation email will note all the information communicated by the customer and will indicate, where relevant, any difficulties or reservations concerning the order (availability of the items ordered, delivery timeframes or payment method chosen). It will give the order number allocated to the customer by the Company.
6.5 Step five: dispatch of the items
At the time of dispatch of the items ordered to the delivery address chosen by the customer, the Company will send the latter an email informing him/her of the said dispatch and the debiting of his/her payment, as provided for below in Article 9.
Article 7 – Proof of the order
Generally speaking, it is expressly agreed between the Company and the customer that emails exchanged by the parties will hold good and be held to be authentic, as will the automatic registration systems used by the Customer Care Department or used on the Website, especially as concerns the nature and date of the order. In addition, the Company will keep the items of information concerning any order whose value is equal to or greater than one hundred and forty dollars (USD$140) for a period of ten (10) years. This information will be made available to the customer on his/her sending a request to that effect to: admin@Lead Inc.-active.com. The customer is nevertheless advised, in the case of orders placed on the Website, to also keep a copy (in the form of a computer record and/or a paper print-out) of the various items of information relating to his/her order (for example, the email sent by the Company as provided for in Article 6.4 above).
Article 8 – Price of the items
The prices communicated by the Customer Care Department or displayed on the Website are given in U.S. Dollars and do not include all taxes applicable or delivery costs.
The prices displayed are those in force at the date of the order.
The amount of the transport costs, if any: (i) will be communicated to the customer by telephone by the Customer Care Department; (ii) will be automatically displayed, if relevant, on the Website at the time of the validation of the dispatch method chosen by the customer, as stipulated in Article 6.3 above, and will also be communicated to the customer at the time of confirming his/her order by email.
At the time of delivery, the customer will receive written confirmation of the price paid for each item and the delivery costs charged.
Article 9 –Payment terms
The customer's purchases may be paid for by credit card and ApplePay. The following credit cards are accepted by the Company: Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover cards. Cards issued by banks domiciled outside of the United States must be international credit cards. In this context, the customer undertakes to effect payment via a credit card of which he/she is the holder, which mentions his/her identity (first name and last name).
For phone purchases, the customer will inform the Customer Care Department by telephone of his/her credit card number and/or his/her bank details. For online payment on the Website: the customer will access a secure server operating in SSL mode (128 bits) that has been certified by a Certification Authority in accordance with secure banking standards. The customer must provide his/her credit card number and/or his/her bank details by filling in the online payment form.
The customer unconditionally agrees in advance that the Company may complete the secure transaction in question. The customer therefore authorizes his/her bank in advance to debit his/her account with a view to any registrations or statements forwarded by the Company, even in the absence of invoices signed by the holder of the card. The authorization to debit the customer's account is always given only for the amount of the item/ items bought.
The customer's credit card will then be debited after verification that his/her order is in conformity with these standard terms and conditions of sale, and after having checked the availability of the item(s), at the time of the dispatch of the latter by the Company. If, for any reason whatsoever (objection, refusal on the part of the issuing centre, etc.), debiting the sums payable by the customer proves to be impossible, the order will not be processed by the Company and/or will be cancelled.
Article 10 –Delivery
Items can only be delivered:
- either to the customer's usual place of residence;
- or to the delivery address indicated by the customer at the time of placing his/her order, it being pointed out that this address must correspond to the usual place of residence of a third party beneficiary chosen by the customer who normally resides in the United States or, failing this, to the address of the company in which the latter pursues his/her professional activity, provided that this is located in the same country as that of the said third party's usual place of residence; it is understood that the items cannot be delivered to hotels or post office boxes.
Once payment of the amount payable for the items ordered has been duly recorded, these items will be delivered to the delivery address indicated by the customer. To that end, the latter undertakes to have communicated an exact delivery address to the Company.
The items ordered will be delivered:
- either on the date or within the timeframe indicated to the customer by the Company and, at the latest, within thirty (30) days of the date of the order;
- or within the timeframes notified to the customer in the case of temporary unavailability of the item in question and accepted by the customer: (i) at the time of placing his/her order with the Customer Care Department by telephone; (ii) at the time of adding an item in his/her "Shopping Bag" prior to acceptance of his/her order.
The Company will deliver the items ordered by standard or express carrier as chosen by the customer. Deliveries will take place exclusively in the United States.
Article 11 – Reservation of title
THE COMPANY RESERVES THE OWNERSHIP OF THE ITEMS DELIVERED UNTIL SUCH TIME AS THE PRICE HAS BEEN PAID IN FULL, IN PRINCIPAL AND INTEREST.

CALIFORNIA TRANSPARENCY IN SUPPLY CHAINS ACT (1)
Lead Inc. Inc. and its affiliated companies (collectively, the "Lead Inc.") supports the goals of the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 (the "Act") and strives to be a model example of human rights and fair labor practices throughout its business activities.
The Lead Inc. chooses the best suppliers in its field who provide premium quality in both their products and services but also by way of their ethical, social and environmental approaches and beliefs. To this end, the Lead Inc. chooses its suppliers based upon their ethics, honesty, and integrity in their business dealings, as well as the social and environmental principles by which they operate.
The implementation of the Act presents the opportunity for the Lead Inc. to reaffirm its commitment to enforcing measures that fight against slavery and human trafficking.
As a responsible corporate actor, the Lead Inc. has long since integrated standards of the Act into its daily business practices and how our suppliers are selected.
The Lead Inc.'s actions in this area include the following:
Verification Requirements for Suppliers
The Lead Inc. has implemented the Lead Inc. Code of Conduct (the "Code") and requires all suppliers (including their subcontractors involved with the manufacturing procedure for Lead Inc.'s products) to agree to and adhere to the terms of the Code. The Code sets forth and establishes non-negotiable minimum standards for the Lead Inc.'s suppliers in the areas of health and safety, labor standards, business integrity, and the environment. In addition, the Lead Inc. may conduct supplier audits, described below, in order to verify that its suppliers are complying with the Code.
The Lead Inc. audits suppliers that, based upon an analysis of the volume of the supplier's business and the risk of abuses in the country in which the supplier is located, pose a high risk of working condition violations to ensure that its suppliers are compliant with internationally recognized Social Accountability standards such as the Social Accountability Internationals SA8000, an international standardized code of conduct for improving working conditions around the world.
Verification of Supplier Compliance
The Lead Inc. requires its suppliers to sign and to adhere to the Code.
In the event the Lead Inc. becomes aware of any actions or conditions not in compliance with the Code, the Lead Inc. reserves the right to demand corrective measures as well as the right to terminate an agreement with any supplier who does not comply with the Code.
Training to Company Employees
The Lead Inc. and its employees endeavor to respect the laws and regulations in all countries in which they operate, and conducts its business according to principles outlined in the International Labour Organization and the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
The Lead Inc. will continue to evolve and adapt its policies and procedures to a changing world in order to reflect the Lead Inc.'s unwavering commitment to ethical business principles.
