Terms and Conditions of Sale

Promotions:Please note that all promotions mentioned on the Clinique Lafontaine website, its various channels, as well as in its various points of sale, may be changed without prior notice.

The use of well-being points in connection with the rewards program cannot be applied simultaneously with ongoing promotions. This means that the user can choose to use either well-being points or a current promotion in the virtual shopping cart, but not both at the same time. This limitation is due to the fact that the transactional system on the website only allows for one action at a time.

Other conditions:

  • Payment methods:By credit card (Visa, Mastercard, or American Express), PayPal, Google Pay, and Apple Pay, or through Affirm Financing, formerly known as PayBright.View details).
  • Purchase conditions:Clinique Lafontaine distributes its products exclusively.

The buyer is not allowed to use visual materials (products, photos, or models) for promotional purposes in magazines, newspapers, the Internet, etc. without the written consent of Clinique Lafontaine.

Please note that in some cases, a portion of these fees may be charged to you. 

Orders over $499.99 require a signature (a $1.95 value offered for free) upon delivery to confirm receipt, reducing the risk of theft for valuable packages.

Carrier selection

The choice of carrier for Clinique Lafontaine orders will be at the discretion of Clinique Lafontaine. In exceptional cases, it is possible for the customer to make an agreement to choose a specific carrier. However, it is important to note that the fees associated with choosing a specific carrier will be the responsibility of the customer.

If the signature cannot be obtained, the package will be returned to a nearby pickup point and will be held for a maximum of 5 business days by Purolator and up to 15 days for Canada Post for you to pick it up. If you are unable to retrieve it, the package will be automatically returned to Clinique Lafontaine.

We cannot reship orders for free when carriers return them to us. If you wish to have the package resent to you or be refunded, there is an additional fee of $19.95 covering administrative costs for managing and resending packages or canceling packages. You can also pick up the package in Drummondville. The package will be held for 14 days, and after that, a refund will be automatically initiated if no action has been taken on your part.

Parcel delivery WITHOUT signature

The package will be transported to the delivery address. We do our best to help the carrier place it as inconspicuously as possible from the street, but in some cases, the package may only be left in front of the entrance door visible to everyone. Make sure to retrieve it as soon as possible to avoid theft, freezing, or any other inconvenience.

Return of products

    We are aware that from time to time you may purchase an item that does not fit as you would have liked. Our return policy is the same for online and in-store purchases.

    1. All items purchased from Clinique Lafontaine can be returned within 15 days of purchase for a refund or exchange. Products with a warranty exceeding this period may be repaired or replaced. Returns, exchanges, or warranties on an item without an invoice are not accepted. To be eligible for a refund or exchange, you must report the issue to customer service within 15 days of purchase. No exchange or refund will be applied for products returned without our prior approval.
    2. Order errorA 15-day period following the purchase allows you to claim a wrong order. If you have received your order in poor condition or if we made a mistake during its preparation, you can contact us so that we can send you the missing items at no additional cost. It is your responsibility to check the contents of your order upon receipt.
    3. Well not defective*Returns are not accepted within 15 days after purchase. The return shipping costs are the responsibility of the customer. Products must be returned in new condition and in their original packaging. Returns outside the 15-day period will not be accepted. No refund of the initial shipping costs will be made as well.
    4. Very defective:If it is related to transportation, we will take the necessary steps with the carrier and assume the related costs if necessary. If an item becomes defective within the first 15 days following the purchase, you can choose between a refund or an exchange. If this happens after this period, the manufacturer's warranty terms will prioritize repair or replacement. To analyze the ambiguity, a photo showing the non-compliant product or a photo of the entire order with the damaged box may be requested for analysis purposes.

    Exceptions for non-portable tables (Comfort-Table and Electro-Comfort Massage Tables):Please note that in the case of a return of one of these non-defective products, within 15 days following the purchase, Clinique Lafontaine will deduct 15% when refunding your purchase. The item must be in new condition, meaning undamaged, clean, odorless, pet hair-free, with original tags and packaging. This fee will cover handling, cleaning, and repackaging of the product to recondition the item.
