The legal information concerning the host and the publisher of the site, in particular the contact details and any capital and registration information, are provided in the legal notices of this site.
Information concerning the collection and processing of personal data (policy and declaration) is provided in the site’s personal data charter.
The object of this site is determined as “site for announcing fresh products dedicated to fruit and vegetable professionals”.
The purpose of these General Conditions of Use is to define the conditions of access to the Site and its use by Users. The Publisher reserves the right to modify the General Conditions of Use at any time by publishing a new version of these on the Site. The General Conditions of Use applicable to the User are those in force on the day of its acceptance.
The acquisition of a product or a service, or the creation of a member area, or more generally navigation on the Site supposes the acceptance, by the User, of the entirety of these General Conditions of Use, which acknowledges the same fact having fully understood it.
This acceptance could consist, for example, for the User, of checking the box corresponding to the sentence of acceptance of these General Conditions of Use, having for example the mention “I acknowledge having read and accepted all the general conditions of the Site ”. Checking this box will be deemed to have the same value as a handwritten signature on the part of the User.
The User recognizes the proof value of the automatic recording systems of the Publisher of this Site and, except for him to provide proof to the contrary, he renounces to dispute them in the event of litigation.
Acceptance of these General Conditions of Use assumes from Users that they have the necessary legal capacity for this. If the User is a minor or does not have this legal capacity, he declares that he has the authorization of a tutor, a curator or his legal representative.
Article 3 – Quality of intermediary of the Site
The Site Editor acts only as an intermediary between the Buyer and the Advertiser.
