In no case may the Website be used by Customers who are professional sellers, alone or in a group, regardless of the method used for the marketing of their products (online marketplaces, shopping galleries, broker, brick and mortar stores in particular). Accordingly, the Customer acknowledges and accepts that the Items can only be purchased in quantities corresponding to the average buying needs of a consumer, both in terms of the number of Items ordered in a single order and in the number of individual Orders corresponding to the usual quantity purchased of the same product by an average consumer. MAJE reserves the right to refuse an order clearly placed by a professional selling Customer.
Every Customer declares to be informed of the unreliability of the Internet network, especially in terms of data transmission security, non-guaranteed continuity in access to the Website, and non-guaranteed performance in terms of volume and speed of data transmission and spread of viruses.

4. CREATION OF A CUSTOMER ACCOUNT
Any MAJE Customer may freely create a customer account at no charge through the "Create an account" section.
A customer account is created by the Customer by completing the form offered to him/her for his/her identification data.
This account is strictly personal to the Customer and allows the Customer to identify himself/herself before validating each Order.
During the creation of the Customer account, the Customer enters the data allowing his/her identification under his/her full responsibility, controls, and directions and commits to provide complete, accurate, and up-to-date information and to not usurp the identity of a third party or hide or modify his/her age.
During the creation of a customer account, the Customer chooses his/her username (email) and password. If the chosen username is already assigned, the system requires the Customer to choose another one.
The usernames and passwords are personal and confidential. While MAJE takes all useful precautions and is committed to protecting the personal data of its Customers, the Customer is informed of the need to keep his/her password secret and not to disclose it to a third party for any reason whatsoever.
A Client who suspects the use of the username and password by a third party must immediately alert MAJE in order for his/her password to be changed and/or to choose to have his/her customer account closed.
MAJE reserves the possibility to close any customer account and accordingly refuse any sale to a Customer in the event of a payment default on one or more previous Orders.
In this case, MAJE shall send an email to the Customer concerned at the address indicated by him/her during the creation of his/her customer account informing him/her of the disabling of his/her username and password and the closure of his/her account. The Client shall be given a reasonable notice period of eight (8) calendar days to possibly express his/her comments with MAJE, without prejudice to the suspension of his/her Account during the notice period.
