When a Customer or User contacts the consumer service through a contact form available on the Websites, this gathers the personal data that is strictly necessary in order to analyse the request and provide a solution for any issues experienced by the Customer or User, or to respond to any questions that they may have.

Nevertheless, the Customer remains responsible for the confidentiality of his/her password and the use of his/her account, and so should not communicate this password to anyone. The Customer is also advised to systematically sign out before closing the browser. Any use of the Services, Website access and navigation, connection or transmission of data made via his/her account with his/her login is presumed to have been made by the Customer and under his/her sole responsibility.

In the event of loss or theft of a login, the Customer will use the procedure set up by SANEF enabling him/her to retrieve the login and/or renew the password.
SANEF does not have any control of the veracity of information conveyed by the Customer when creating an account. Consequently, SANEF may not be held liable for any false declaration or identity theft.
