These General Terms and Conditions determine the conditions of use of www.pierrefabreoralcare-lb.com website (hereinafter referred to as the "Website") which the end user (hereinafter referred to as the "User" and/or "You") expressly and/or tacitly accepts when consulting this Website.
If the User does not accept these Terms and Conditions, then she/he will not be able to access the Website. If the User is minor under age, they undertake to consult the Website only in the presence of their parents or guardians who have previously accepted these Terms and Conditions, and their access to the Website shall be deemed as being an express acceptance of their parents and/or guardians of these Terms and Conditions.
These General Terms and Conditions may be modified at any time at the sole discretion of “Pierre Fabre Médicament”, or any of its affiliates, subsidiaries, representative offices, or sister companies (altogether hereinafter referred to as "PFM") without any prior notification. All the amended Terms and Conditions shall be immediately effective when posted on the Website. Therefore, they rule and govern any and all subsequent use of the Website, the previous uses being ruled by the Terms and Conditions which were valid and applicable at the date of such use.
These General Terms and Conditions are governed by and interpreted in accordance with the Lebanese laws, especially the law number 81 dated October 18th, 2018 related to electronic transactions and personal data, and the law number 75 dated April 3rd, 1999 related to the protection of literary and artistic property.
GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE:
The Website is available under certain conditions, which the User is deemed, by simply accessing the Website, to have carefully read and fully accepted.
Use and consultation of the Website is restricted to personal and non-commercial purposes. The User agrees not to use all or part of the Website for illicit purposes (which include, without limitation, copyright and other proprietary rights violation) or for purposes that are contrary to these Terms and Conditions of use.
By consulting the Website, the User agrees to respect the Terms and Conditions of use, as displayed at the date on which the Website is visited.
PURPOSE OF THE WEBSITE:
The Website has been created to provide the User with informational and educational material on health in general and oral care in particular, and to provide information about the products of the PIERRE FABRE ORAL CARE® brand (such as therapeutic indications, mechanisms of action, etc…).
Some of the products of the PIERRE FABRE ORAL CARE® brand are subject to specific regulations. Therefore, the Website is divided and segregated into two distinct parts, clearly and legibly identified for the User: (1) ranges of health care products with marketing authorization, complying with regulations regarding medication, and (2) ranges of health care products outside the marketing authorization scheme.
All the provisions contained in this Website do not constitute a contractual offer. This Website (i) publishes non-contractual information with a view to provide educational information on health, describing all of the products of the PIERRE FABRE ORAL CARE® brand, and (ii) is not dedicated to any trade purpose such as directly offering products or services for sale.
Insofar as this Website is updated taking all activities into account, some information or announcements may no longer be in effect at the time at which they are posted, or may simply have become outdated.
PFM cannot guarantee, despite making every possible effort to that effect, that all information or news displayed on this Website will always be completely up to date, or be covering all possible cases and contraindications.
REGISTRATION AND PERSONAL DATA:
Registration is not compulsory for this Website in order to consult its contents. Nonetheless, by simply using the Website, the User will be deemed (i) having read and accepted these Terms and Conditions, and (ii) having accepted to communicate her/his personal data exclusively for the purposes herein set out and as further detailed herebelow.
PFM will never require the User to communicate personal data with regard to the part devoted to health care products with marketing authorization on the Website.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, in order to take advantage of promotional and/or customer loyalty operations, exclusively for health care products outside the marketing authorization scheme, PFM may collect personal data regarding the User solely for the purpose of organizing said operations. This personal data will be processed automatically and may be intended for the purposes of contacting the User.
In accordance with the provisions of the Lebanese law no. 81/2018 dated October 18th, 2018, the User is hereby informed that they have the right to access, oppose, correct and remove their personal data, if, when and as communicated and uploaded on this Website. In order to exercise these rights, the User shall simply send a request to PFM at the following address: email@example.com.
Subject to having received prior express consent from the User when collecting personal data, PFM may send the User direct marketing material by email and/or may have reason to transfer data about the User to the service provider of its choice, for the sole purposes of organizing promotional operations and, in particular, giving gifts and/or reimbursements.
PFM undertakes to keep confidential the personal data transmitted by the User as they use the Website.

Computer applications containing family health advice about products in PIERRE FABRE ORAL CARE® brand range and their associated conditions are made available to the User on the Website (hereafter referred to as the ‘Applications’).
PFM is not bound by any performance obligation but rather a best efforts obligation with respect to advice offered to the User on the Website.
PFM gives no expressed or implied guarantee and does not accept any liability relating to the use of this advice and of recommended products. Such advice is given for information only and must be confirmed by qualified health care professionals.
The User acknowledges and accepts that this information is to be used under their sole responsibility and control.
Consequently, consulting the sections of the Website in no way relieves the User of the need to obtain personalized advice from a doctor, a pharmacist or a health care professional, who are the only individuals qualified to provide the User with advice suited to their particular situation.
For further information and/or in case of doubt, the User may contact PFM at the following email address:
PFM may provide links to external websites and/or applications that may or may not belong to (i) the PIERRE FABRE Group of companies, and to the range of products with the PIERRE FABRE label, brand name or logo. These websites and/or applications are independent from the Website, and PFM does neither publish or check the sources and content of these websites and/or applications, nor their links with other websites and/or applications.

Consequently, PFM cannot be held liable for the content, products, services, advertising, cookies or any other elements of these websites and/or applications, nor for any damage or loss, whether proven or alleged, occurring as a direct result of or in relation to the use of the information, services or data available on these websites and/or applications.
