Registration for and access to the website’s services are exclusively reserved for customers and partners of the company Hygiene & Expertise SPRL. Anybody who would like access is invited to send a request by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
When they register, users undertake to provide accurate, truthful and up-to-date information about themselves and their personal information. Users must also check their data regularly to make sure it is still accurate.
