The VAT number is FR89842438947.
1.2 Placing an order for Products entails the Customer’s full and unreserved adherence to these ST&Cs. In accordance with the law, these ST&Cs constitute the basis of the commercial negotiation and consequently prevail over any contradictory provisions that may derive from the Customer.

“Contract”: Set of documentation consisting of the Customer’s Order, these ST&Cs and any potential specific agreement which might be agreed upon by the Parties.

3.4 The Customer warrants the accuracy of all this information.
