3 - ORDERS
You can choose the DISPEL Products that you wish to Order from the Website, using the following procedures:
3.1 Placing Orders
When you place your first Order, we will ask you to open a client account and to fill out an Order form, providing information in certain mandatory fields so that we can process your Order. Should you not wish to create a client account of our Website, you can use the guest checkout, which only requires information necessary for the Order processing.
In the event of a period of inactivity during the connection, it is possible that the DISPEL Products that you have chosen are no longer available. You will then be asked to re-enter your selection of DISPEL Products from the beginning.
All of the steps necessary to place an Order are described on our Website.
Before an Order is placed, you will have the opportunity to check the details of your Order and its total price, and to correct any potential errors, before confirming that Order. Each Order placed entails a payment obligation. To confirm the final validation for an Order, you must click “Proceed to payment”.
For any Order that you place through our Website, a confirmation email will be sent to you with your Order number and the details of the DISPEL Products you have ordered. We advise you to keep a paper or electronic copy of the email. If the email is not properly received, you should check your spam folder.
Please note that this email is sent to the email address provided by you. DISPEL cannot therefore be liable for any error made when entering your email address.
Despite all the care we take in presenting the DISPEL Products on our Website, we cannot guarantee that their real appearance will correspond exactly to how they appear on our Website, your computer screen or mobile device.
3.2 Placing Pre-Orders
Some Products can be pre-ordered. These Products are identified as pre-orderable, on the Website. Unless a specific provision related to pre-ordered Products is indicated on the Website page (delivery period and delivery options) and in these T&C, the same provisions apply to Orders and Pre-Orders.
A mixed order, consisting of currently available Products and pre-ordered Products, is not possible.
Each Pre-Order placed entails a payment obligation. A “hold” will be placed on your mean of payment, for the full amount of the pre-ordered Product(s). Your bank account will only be debited when the pre-ordered Product is actually shipped.
As long as the preparation of the shipment of the Pre-Order has not begun, you are entitled to cancel your Pre-Order. In such case, the Pre-Order will not be delivered to you. The amount held on your bank account will be fully refunded without undue delay.
Where permitted by law, we reserve the right to limit the quantities of DISPEL Products that we supply, and/or to refuse any Order for any reason including Orders that appear to us to be unusual, designed to permit resale of DISPEL Products, fraudulent Orders or Orders placed in bad faith. In addition, we reserve the right to refuse any Order from a client with whom there is a dispute concerning a previous Order (payment, return…).
4 - PRICE
The price of the DISPEL Products are stated in U.S. Dollars, excluding sales, use and other taxes.
Unless otherwise specifically stated, prices do not include shipping costs, which are invoiced in addition to the price of the Products that you have purchased. Shipping costs are specified on the Website and are subject to revision or modification from time to time. These shipping charges may be waived for purchases over a certain value.
We pay the closest attention to the accuracy of the prices on our Website. However, in the case of an error on our part and subject to applicable law, we reserve the right to not provide the DISPEL Products where the posted price was manifestly incorrect. In such case, should you have already paid your Order, you will receive an immediate refund corresponding to the amount paid.
We can modify the prices listed on our Website at any time and without prior notice. However, subject to the foregoing provision regarding a manifest pricing error, such modified prices will only be applied to new Orders made after the price change, and will not affect the pricing on Orders that have already been placed.
Upon confirmation of your Order, you will receive an email with the confirmed price paid for each Product purchased, giving details of the price of each item, and where applicable, the shipping costs charged.
5 - CONDITIONS OF PAYMENT
All payments are taken in U.S. Dollars.
Payments through the Website can be made:
Using a Paypal, WeChatPay or Alipay account (for desktop and mobile versions) ; or an ApplePay account (for mobile version only);
By bank card: debit or credit card (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, China Union Pay, Discover, Diners Club, JCB)
Your bank card will be charged as soon as your Order (or Pre-Order) has been dispatched.
For payment by bank card, you confirm that you are the holder of the bank card and that your name is indeed featured on said card. You will have to provide the numbers and expiry date featured on the front of the card, together with the CVC number shown on its back (or front).
All credit and debit card information are encrypted using current industry standards (including the SSL protocol) (confirmed by the appearance of the “https” in the address displayed by your navigator).
For any payment mean, checks are carried out online directly with the relevant banking establishments or bodies.
In order to fight fraud and abusive usage of payment means, DISPEL or its service providers may store and automatically process information concerning each Order, including but not limited to the bank card information or electronic wallet ID, but at all times consistent with the security norm of the lasts version of PCI-DSS. DISPEL and its service providers reserve the right to track fraudulent activity including transactions that are declined.
Although our transactions are conducted in U.S. Dollars, if your bank card is in a foreign currency, some bank card providers charge additional fees for foreign money transfers and bank card transactions in foreign currencies. You should confirm the applicability of any fees before placing your Order with us. DISPEL will not be liable for additional charges associated with foreign currency transactions.
If the amount owed cannot be charged or debited for any reason whatsoever (objection, refusal by issuing center, etc.), the Order will be immediately cancelled, and the online purchasing process will be terminated.

10 – PROTECTION OF PERSONAL DATA
11 - INTELLECTUAL PROPRERTY
DISPEL trademarks, figurative or non-figurative trademarks, illustrations, visuals, logos appearing on DISPEL Products, accessories, or packaging, whether protected by copyright or not, are exclusively owned by SSGRP LLC. Any reproduction, whether total or partial, modification or use made of such trademarks, illustrations, images and logos, for any reason whatsoever and on any support whatsoever, made without express prior consent from DISPEL, is strictly prohibited.
Also prohibited is any combination or conjunction with any other trademark, symbol, logo, and, more generally, any distinctive mark intended to create a composite logo. This is also the case for any copyright, designs and patents which are the property of DISPEL.
The use of all or part of the Website, particularly downloading, reproduction, communication or representation, for any purpose other than personal and private use for non-commercial purposes, is strictly prohibited. Any person who breached these provisions is then exposed to the sanctions defined by applicable law including with respect to breach of copyright and trademark rights.
12 – SIGNATURE AND EVIDENCE
DISPEL acts to ensure that a high level of security is guaranteed in relation to the personal information of its customers. However, you also have a role to play in the protection of your personal data. In particular, you must keep your online transactions secure by, for example, never disclosing identifiers (your email address) and/or passwords to anyone and by changing passwords on a regular basis. DISPEL cannot therefore be held liable with regard to the disclosure of your information to any individual having used your identifier (email address) and/or password. The user of your identifier (email address) and/or password will therefore be taken as proof of identity and render the corresponding amounts due, once the Order has been validated. DISPEL shall not under any circumstances be held liable with regard to the fraudulent use of such information. Provision of a bank card number and the final validation of the Order will be taken as evidence of acceptance of the said Order and render due the amounts committed by the entry of the products making up the Order. The automated registers saved in the IT systems of DISPEL and its partners will be considered as evidence proving the communications, Orders and payments made by and between the Parties.
13 – FORCE MAJEURE
The performance by DISPEL of all or part of its obligations will be suspended upon the occurrence of an event of force majeure which would impede or delay such performance.
DISPEL will inform you of the occurrence of any such fortuitous event or event of force majeure within seven (7) days. Should this suspension continue for more than fifteen (15) days, you would then have the option to cancel any outstanding Orders.
14 - LIABILITY - WARRANTY
