The fact of placing an order implies the Customer's full and unreserved acceptance of these GTC, to the exclusion of all other documents such as catalogs, leaflets, etc. issued by Octopurse and which have only an indicative value.

The fact that Octopurse does not take advantage at a given time of any of the provisions of these GTC can not be interpreted as a waiver to take advantage later of any of these conditions. Octopurse reserves the right to modify these GTC at any time.
