The use of our website is subject to the rights and obligations explicitly mentioned on our website, as well as to the rights and obligations defined in this disclaimer, in our general terms and conditions of sale and in our Privacy Policy. Together, these texts constitute our "General Terms and Conditions".

These Terms and Conditions apply to us as well as to you. By using our website, you explicitly acknowledge and accept the application of our General Terms and Conditions, to the exclusion of your own General Terms and Conditions.

Exceptionally, the provisions of the General Terms and Conditions may be waived provided that such waivers have been agreed in writing between the parties. These derogations may consist of the modification, addition or deletion of the clauses to which they relate and have no effect on the application of the other provisions of the General Terms and Conditions.

2/ Our website

2.1 Proper operation, security and accessibility

We take all reasonable and necessary measures to ensure the proper functioning, security and accessibility of our site. However, we cannot offer any guarantee of absolute operability and our actions must therefore be considered as being covered by an obligation of means.

Any use of the site is always at the user's own risk. We are therefore not liable for any damage that may result from possible malfunctions, interruptions, defects or harmful elements on the site, regardless of the existence of force majeure or an external cause.

We reserve the right to restrict access to our site or to interrupt its operation at any time, without obligation to give prior notice. In principle, this will only be done if the circumstances of the case justify it, but this is not an absolute condition.

2.2 Content of the website

SBS Studbook largely determines the contents of its site and takes great care of the information present on it. SBS Studbook takes all possible measures to maintain its website as complete, precise and up to date as possible, even when the information present on this one is provided by third parties. SBS Studbook reserves the right to modify, complete or delete the site and its contents at any time.

SBS Studbook cannot offer an absolute guarantee concerning the quality of the information present on its site. It is therefore possible that this information is not always complete, exact, sufficiently precise and/or up to date. Consequently, SBS Studbook cannot be held responsible for any damage, direct or indirect, that the user may suffer as a result of the information on the site.

If certain contents on the site are in violation with the applicable laws and/or with the rights of third parties and/or would be contrary to morality, we ask you to inform us as soon as possible so that we can take appropriate measures. SBS Studbook may, in particular, delete all or part of the said information.

The website contains downloadable content. Any downloading from the website is always at the user's own risk. Studbook SBS cannot be held liable for any direct or indirect damage resulting from such downloads, such as loss of data or damage to the user's computer system, which is entirely and exclusively the responsibility of the user.

With regard more specifically to prices and product information appearing on the website, a reservation applies to obvious formal errors, such as typing mistakes. Under no circumstances may the user rely on the existence of a contract with SBS Studbook based on such errors.

2.3 What we expect from the users

As a user, you have a certain responsibility for the proper functioning of the site. At all times, you must refrain from any action that may impair the proper functioning and security of the website and its use. For example, the site may not be used to circumvent our business model and/or to gather information about other users.

In particular, it is forbidden to use the website to disseminate content that would result in damage to other users, such as the propagation of malicious software such as computer viruses. The proliferation of unsolicited and/or commercial messages via the website, as well as undesirable e-mails or spamming, is also prohibited.

SBS Studbook reserves the right to take all necessary measures to remedy the situation for itself and its users, both judicially and extra-judicially. The user is solely responsible, personally and exclusively, in the event that their actions and behaviour actually cause damage to the website or to other users. In this case, the user in question must ensure that SBS Studbook is exonerated from any claim for damages that may result.

3/ Links to other websites

The website may contain links or hyperlinks to external websites or other forms of online portals. Such links do not automatically imply that there is any relationship between us and the external website or even that we implicitly agree with the content of these external websites.

SBS Studbook has no control over external websites. We are therefore not responsible for the safe and correct functioning of hyperlinks and their final destination. As soon as the user clicks on the hyperlink, they leave our site. We can therefore no longer be held liable for any subsequent damage.

It is likely that these external websites do not offer the same guarantees as we do. We therefore suggest that you read their general terms and conditions of sale carefully, as well as their disclaimer and privacy policy.

4/ Intellectual property

The content published on the website is protected by the intellectual property rights of SBS Studbook. By "content", we mean the information, logos, photos, brands, drawings, models, slogans, databases, etc. accessible on the site. The technical nature of the website itself, i.e. the computer code, is also protected by intellectual property rights.

By visiting our site, the user is granted a limited right to access, use and display our site and its content. This right is granted on a non-exclusive, non-transferable basis and may only be used for personal and non-commercial purposes. Without prior written consent from SBS Studbook, users are not authorized to modify, reproduce, translate, distribute, sell, borrow, rent or communicate to the public, in whole or in part, the protected elements.

5/ Protection of personal data

The personal data provided by the user during their visit and/or use of the website are collected and processed by SBS Studbook exclusively for internal purposes. SBS Studbook assures its users that it attaches the greatest importance to the protection of their private life and their personal data, and that it is always committed to communicating in a clear and transparent way on this point.

SBS Studbook undertakes to comply with the applicable legislation on the matter, namely the Law of December 8, 1992 on the protection of privacy with regard to the processing of personal data ("Privacy Act") as well as the European Regulation of April 27, 2016 on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data ("Regulation").

The user's personal data is processed in accordance with our Privacy Charter.

6/ General provisions applicable to our General Conditions

SBS Studbook reserves the right to modify, extend, delete, limit or interrupt the site and the associated services at any time, without prior notice, and without this giving rise to any form of compensation.

Our General Terms and Conditions (including our General Terms and Conditions of Sale) shall be governed by and interpreted in accordance with Belgian law. Any dispute relating to the validity, interpretation or performance of our General Terms and Conditions shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the judicial district of Namur.

The illegality or invalidity of any provision of our General Terms and Conditions, in whole or in part, shall have no impact on the validity and application of the other provisions of our General Terms and Conditions. In such a case, we have the right to replace the inapplicable clause with another provision that is valid in law and of similar scope.
