1.3. Prior to any transaction, the purchaser declares, on the one hand, that the purchase of products on the www.bioparabolic.com website is not directly related to his/her professional activity and is limited to strictly personal use and, on the other hand, that he/she has full legal capacity, enabling him/her to commit to these general terms and conditions of sale.
1.4. Pertinium reserves the right to modify these conditions of sale at any time, in order to comply with any new regulations or in order to improve the use of the www.bioparabolic.com website. As a result, the applicable conditions will be those in force on the date of the buyer's order.

When a product is out of stock, it is no longer possible to order it until it is restocked. If a product ordered is no longer available, for example if the last items have been sold during the waiting period for payment by bank transfer, the buyer will be informed by email within 24 hours.
