5. Safety of Children and Teens on the Internet

More and more children and teenagers are using Internet services and benefiting from them. However, as in any other environment, they can become the target of crime or exploitation because they are more vulnerable. That’s why we recommend that you monitor your children’s and teens’ use of your Internet service and provide them with some common sense safety tips and recommendations. Such measures can often prevent your children and teenagers from being exposed to offensive material, harassment or other criminal acts. To reduce the risk of your children and teens being exposed to such perils, exercise reasonable supervision over their use of your Internet service. Your children and teenagers should be aware that they should never disclose personal information such as their name, phone number or address in chat rooms. It is important that your children and teens are encouraged to disclose their concerns to you if they receive messages that make them feel uncomfortable or offended. These recommendations will help your children and teens navigate the Internet in an informed manner and will help you ensure that your children and teens take full advantage of all the features the service provides to enrich their development.

6. Illegal Content

It is forbidden to include in the Ecosolaris site any defamatory, obscene, offensive, violent or racist texts, nor any illegal material that would violate the intellectual property of others, under penalty of legal action. The user undertakes to use the Ecosolaris services in compliance with the laws in force.

7. Security and efficiency of the network

Ecosolaris does not guarantee total efficiency or security. It is possible for a hacker to gain access to the server. It is therefore important to keep in mind that it is always possible that a malicious individual could access the Ecosolaris website servers and use, for his own purposes, some of the personal information left by users. Under no circumstances will Ecosolaris or its administrators be held responsible for any hacking attempt or any loss or damage that may be incurred by any user of the Ecosolaris Web site. The Ecosolaris website may experience occasional outages and some programming errors may be caused by updates or events beyond the control of the administrators.

Neither the administrators nor any member of the organization will be held responsible if a member is unable to navigate the Ecosolaris website for any reason (misunderstanding, faulty phone line, incompatible modem, broken cable, bad configuration, bad browser, etc.).

Ecosolaris or a third party may link to other sites or sources. Ecosolaris has no means of controlling these sites and sources, and is not responsible for the availability of such external sites and sources, nor does it guarantee them. Ecosolaris does not endorse or approve of the contents to which these sites or sources give access, and excludes all responsibility and guarantee with regard to these contents.

9. Payment and Payment Terms

1. Prices

Prices for our products are quoted in Canadian or U.S. dollars with applicable taxes added (where applicable). All orders, regardless of their origin, are payable in Canadian or U.S. dollars.

2. Payment by individual

The payment of your purchases on our website is made by credit card. They are all accepted as well as American Express, MasterCard and Visa international cards. The proposed fees must be paid according to the payment procedure described during the registration process. The customer agrees to pay the total cost and charges for the product purchased, including taxes. Ecosolaris may change the price after notifying the customer. The client is solely responsible for the actual payment of the product purchased. Only the user is responsible for the payment by credit card of the service offered. Ecosolaris is not responsible for payment problems related to the operation of the e-commerce service.

3. Payment by institutions 

Our payment terms are, net in 30 days, from the date of invoice, unless otherwise agreed in writing with Ecosolaris. Payment terms accepted are either by check or bank transfer. Interest of 1% per month will be added to all unpaid invoices 30 days after the invoice date. A $25.00 fee will be added to the next invoice for a NSF check. As a result, Ecosolaris will proceed to cancel the current credit terms (of the account) and will require, in the future, full payment of each invoice prior to delivery of the goods, by certified check, money order or credit card (Visa or AMEX) only. Ecosolaris does not accept payment on account, net in 30 days, by credit card.
