To order, the Customer must create an account and enter all the requested information (full name, country, password, password confirmation and email address).
As soon as the Customer has finalised the order, a confirmation email acknowledging receipt of the order will be sent to the email address indicated when the account was created.
This acknowledgement will indicate that the order has been received, validated by SSP ACO or LMEM, and paid for (subject to validity of the operation and payment).
Under the French Consumer Code, SSP ACO or LMEM reserves the right to reject any order on legitimate grounds especially in the event of a payment problem, or abnormal or fraudulent orders, or to request proof.
5. Price and payment
- 5.1 Price:
The applicable price will be the current one when the purchase is made.
- 5.2 Payment:
The Product will be paid for via the Websites by Visa or Mastercard, or via the platform used by the Customer to download the App.

6. Force majeure
In a case of force majeure, as defined in article 1218 of the French Civil Code, preventing SSP ACO and/or LMEM from fulfilling their obligations, the execution of said obligations will be automatically suspended. Should such an impediment prove to be permanent, the sale of the Products will be automatically terminated and the Parties will be released of their obligations, without this giving entitlement to any form of compensation.
7. Cancellation period – Reimbursement
In accordance with legislation, a non-professional Customer purchasing one or more Product(s) may cancel the order within 14 days of acceptance of the offer.
In this case, the Customer must complete, sign and send the standard cancellation form (printed on the back of the T&Cs), or any other written document expressing the Customer’s intention to cancel the order, to SSP ACO or LMEM before the cancellation period expires.
In accordance with article L.221-24 of the French Consumer Code, the Customer will be reimbursed within 14 days of the date on which SSP ACO is informed of the decision to cancel, except where a delay is justified.
However, the Customer will not be able to exercise the right to cancel if the services included in the Product are available before the legal cancellation period has expired. The Customer is therefore informed that, in this case, and in accordance with article L221-9 of the French Consumer Code, by accepting these T&Cs, the Customer shall explicitly agree for the Products to be supplied immediately and to waive their right to cancel.
8. Personal data protection
The Customer’s personal data is collected for the purpose of order processing and tracking. Data will be stored until the Customer deletes their account.
Under the French data protection act of 6 January 1978, the Customer has the right to access, alter, rectify or delete their personal data. The Customer can obtain information on the processing of personal data and exercise these rights by writing to:

In accordance with provisions relating to mediation, any consumer disputes must be submitted, in writing, to the Customer Service of SSP ACO (email@example.com) before any request for mediation. If no amicable solution is found, the Customer may refer the matter to MEDICYS via www.medicys.fr.
