Any user may access the TOS from any page of the Site.

These TOS shall take precedence over any other document.

 

3. ATTENTION

In no case may the Site be used by professional retail Customers, alone or together, and regardless of the method of marketing their products (on the internet, in shopping malls, intermediaries, and including physical stores). The Customer acknowledges and agrees therefore that the items can only be purchased in quantities reflecting average consumer needs, both in terms of the number of items ordered in one order and the number of individual Orders respecting the usual amount an average consumer places for the same product. Sandro reserves the right to refuse to fulfill an order clearly validated by a professional retail Customer.

All Customers are informed of the lack of reliability of the Internet, especially in terms of relative security in data transmission, continuity in unsecured access to the Site, non-guaranteed performance in terms of the volume and speed of data transmission and virus propagation.

As the TOS are the subject of modifications, the applicable conditions are those in effect on the Site on the day the order is placed.

Handling of a defective or non-compliant item (replacement or refund) or the exercise of a right to cancel and return an order cannot be carried out in physical Sandro stores.

Creation of a customer account is completed by the Customer by filling out the form requesting identification information.

This account is strictly personal and enables an individual to log in before placing an Order.

When creating the customer account, the customer enters data that allows his/her identification under his/her full responsibility, control and direction and is committed to providing complete, accurate and timely information, and not to assume the identity of a third party, nor hide or change his/her age.

During the creation of a Customer Account, the Customer chooses his/her username and password.

If the username chosen is already assigned, the system prompts a message to choose another.

Usernames and passwords are personal and confidential. The Customer is solely responsible for them.

The Customer undertakes to keep his/her password secret and to not disclose it under any context and for any reason whatsoever.

If it is suspected that a username and password has been used by a third party, the Customer must immediately alert Sandro to change his/her password and/or choose to close his/her account.

Sandro reserves the possibility to close any customer account and refuse any sale to a Customer in the following cases:

  • lack of payment for one or several past Orders,
  • abuse, unfair or fraudulent use of the Order service provided on the Site or failure to respect any of the Customer's obligations set out in the TOS.

In this case, Sandro will send an email to the Customer concerned, via the address communicated by the latter during the creation of his/her customer account, informing the deactivation of his/her username and password and the closing of the account.

Generally speaking, the Customer is informed of the fact that his/her account may be closed following the first request of the Customer issued by email to Sandro.
