Louis Vuitton reserves the right at any time after receipt of your order and/or payment to accept or decline your order for any reason and will contact you at the e-mail address provided in the order form of its decision to accept or reject your order. In the event that Louis Vuitton rejects the order, Louis Vuitton will have no obligation to fulfill your order and you will have no obligation to pay Louis Vuitton for the order.
