Article 2: Purpose
The present conditions of sale aim at defining the contractual relations between the salesman and the purchaser as well as the conditions applicable to any purchase carried out by the means of the site of the salesman, that the purchaser is professional or consumer.
The acquisition of a good or a service through the present site implies an acceptance without reserve by the buyer of the present conditions of sale. These conditions of sale shall prevail over any other general or particular conditions not expressly approved by the seller.
The seller reserves the right to modify its conditions of sale at any time. In this case, the applicable conditions will be those in force at the date of the order by the buyer.
Article 3: Characteristics of the goods and services offered
The products and services offered are those listed in the catalog published on the seller’s website. Each product is accompanied by a description established by the supplier. The photographs in the catalog are as accurate as possible but cannot ensure a perfect similarity with the product offered. These products and services are offered while stocks last. If, in spite of its efforts, all or part of the articles are unavailable, the salesman informs the purchaser by email as soon as possible and offers to him the possibility of choosing between waiting or cancelling without expenses the order of the unavailable articles. Available items will be delivered as usual.
The training courses offered for sale are described by the seller.
With the exception of those that can reasonably be considered essential for the buyer (general theme covered, minimum duration of the training, geographical area and date of the training), the characteristics contained in the description drawn up by the seller are provided strictly for information purposes and are not contractual in nature.
By placing an order, the buyer acknowledges that the training courses offered by the seller have not been created specifically for his needs. Therefore, the buyer accepts that the seller does not grant any guarantee and does not assume any responsibility as to the adequacy of the ordered training with its specific needs.
The Seller shall take all reasonable steps to provide the Customer with information that is as complete and correct as possible, without, however, making any warranty in this regard.
