WARNING STATEMENT

The sale of Items on the Website is reserved exclusively for retail sale to private individuals.

In no case may the Website be used by Customers who are professional sellers, alone or in a group, regardless of the method used for the marketing of their products (online marketplaces, shopping galleries, broker, brick and mortar stores in particular). Accordingly, the Customer acknowledges and accepts that the Items can only be purchased in quantities corresponding to the average buying needs of a consumer, both in terms of the number of Items ordered in a single order and in the number of individual Orders corresponding to the usual quantity purchased of the same product by an average consumer. We reserve the right to refuse an order clearly placed by a professional selling Customer.

Every Customer declares to be informed of the unreliability of the Internet network, especially in terms of data transmission security, non-guaranteed continuity in access to the Website, and non-guaranteed performance in terms of volume and speed of data transmission and spread of viruses.

SMCP warns each Customer about the need to implement a solution and security measures on their computer or portable or mobile devices in order to prevent the spread of viruses.

 

CREATION OF CUSTOMER ACCOUNT

Any SMCP Customer may freely create a customer account at no charge through the "Create an account" section.

A customer account is created by the Customer by completing the form offered to him/her for their identification data.

This account is strictly personal to the Customer and allows the Customer to identify himself/herself before validating each Order.

During the creation of the Customer account, the Customer enters the data allowing their identification under their full responsibility, controls, and directions and commits to provide complete, accurate, and up-to-date information and to not usurp the identity of a third party or hide or modify their age.

During the creation of a customer account, the Customer chooses their username (email) and password. If the chosen username is already assigned, the system requires the Customer to choose another one.

The usernames and passwords are personal and confidential. While we take all reasonable precautions and are committed to protecting the personal data of our Customers, the Customer is informed of the need to keep their password secret and not to disclose it to a third party for any reason whatsoever.

A Client who suspects the use of the username and password by a third party must immediately alert us in order for their password to be changed and/or to choose to have their customer account closed.

We reserve the possibility to close any customer account and accordingly refuse any sale to a Customer in the event of a payment default on one or more previous Orders.

In this case, we shall send an email to the Customer at the address indicated by him/her during the creation of their customer account informing him/her of the disabling of their username and password and the closure of their account. The Client shall be given a reasonable notice period of eight (8) calendar days to possibly express their comments with us, without prejudice to the suspension of their Account during the notice period.

In general, the Customer is informed that their account may be closed following the Customer's first request submitted to us by email.

 

CHARACTERISTICS AND AVAILABILITY OF THE ITEMS

We do our best to make sure that all items on the Website are in stock and available for sale, but in certain cases, the information may be outdated or incorrect in which case the customer’s remedy is a return of any payments or charges for such item, if any.

We reserve the right to remove from sale any Item on this Website at any time and/or replace or modify any information associated with the Items on this Website.

If an Item is unavailable, after their Order is placed, the Customer shall be informed by email. Their order shall then be automatically cancelled. No charge shall be applied since we only charge once an item ships.

The Item characteristics and visuals are non-binding contractually.

In case of errors or omissions relating to the description of an Item, our responsibility shall be limited to the reimbursement of reasonable costs incurred by the Customer for sending the Item back.
