That procedure constitutes the Purchaser’s acceptance of the Terms and Conditions. The data provided during registration shall be accurate and true. In case of any relevant changes in the registration data, the Purchaser shall promptly inform VS ASIA via e-mail with the reference note “Change of Data.”
