Transactions between buyers and suppliers
Through the website, ÔLAVIE provides an electronic web-based platform for transactions between buyers and suppliers of products and services. ÔLAVIE does not represent the seller or the buyer in specific transactions and does not charge any commissions from completing any transactions. As a result, ÔLAVIE does not control and is not liable to or responsible for the quality, safety, lawfulness or availability of the products or services offered for sale on the website or the ability of the suppliers to complete a sale or the ability of buyers to complete a purchase.
Users are hereby made aware that there may be risks of dealing with people acting under false pretences. ÔLAVIE uses several techniques to verify the accuracy of the information our users provide us when they register on the website. However, because user verification on the Internet is difficult, ÔLAVIE cannot and does not confirm each user’s purported identity. ÔLAVIE encourages users to use the various tools available on the website, as well as common sense, to evaluate with whom you are dealing.
Each user acknowledges that it is fully assuming the risks of purchase and sale transactions when using the website to conduct transactions, such risks shall include, but not limited to, mis-representation of products and services, fraudulent schemes, unsatisfactory quality, failure to meet specifications, defective products, delay or default in delivery or payment, cost mis-calculations, breach of warranty, breach of contract and transportation accidents.

Users are solely responsible for all of the terms and conditions of the transactions conducted on, through or as a result of use of the website, including, without limitation, terms regarding payment, returns, warranties, shipping, insurance, fees, taxes, title, licenses, fines, permits, handling, transportation and storage.
In the event that any user has a dispute with any party to a transaction, such user agrees to release and indemnify ÔLAVIE (and our agents, affiliates, directors, officers and employees) from all claims, demands, actions, proceedings, costs, expenses and damages (including without limitation any actual, special, incidental or consequential damages) arising out of or in connection with such transaction.
