Since the only requirement is the means, the Platform website does not undertake to achieve this result. Any event due to a case of force majeure, in the broadest sense of the term, resulting in any network or server function will not incur the liability of the Platform website. Access to the MIssions on the Platform website can, at any moment, be subject to an interruption, a suspension or a modification, without prior notice, for maintenance or any other reason. The User agrees not to claim any compensation following the interruption, suspension or a modification to this contract, for any reason whatsoever, even if these incidents were to prevent the User from purchasing the vehicle he had chosen. The User has the possibility of contacting the Platform Website by email at the address "Mail suivante:".
Any User wishing to load the Missions Platform must, on one hand, accept the General Conditions of Sales and Use by ticking the two boxes provided for this purpose, and on the other hand, register on the Platform website by creating his own account (to do this, follow the on-line instructions).
The User (principal) hereby gives a broad mandate to the SKILLTER platform (agent). The SKILLTER Platform, who accepts, in order to perform the following missions: Missions of a general scope: - The Platform allows and / or facilitates, within the framework of missions which are entrusted to him by the User, the organisation, transportation and importation of the desired vehicle from the USA through the intervention of specialized service providers as acknowledged by the User. - The home delivery or a delivery to any other location should be the subject of a specific request from the User to the Platform. - Any mission and assistance within the capability of the Platform in the context of fulfilling the Missions which are entrusted to him as part of the Power of Attorney Mandate, the subject matter hereof... - The Platform sends the Users all the documents that the American sellers and service providers have sent to him as part of the purchase and transport operations. Customs clearance documents will be given by the freight forwarders at the destination port. Any User, asking the Platform to take charge of one or more mission through this power of attorney contract (Mandate), undertakes to pay particular attention to the content of the ad concerning the vehicle he wishes to purchase and have transported, such that the platform is never brought into question with regard the selection of the said article. The platform is never involved in this selection. In the case where the User asks the Platform for an opinion, the response from the latter does not commit the said Platform. Only a response from an Expert duly requested may be taken into consideration, which shall be the sole responsibility of the Expert. In the case where a check is required by the User, or recommended by the Platform, the latter shall indicate to the User, all the steps to be taken as well as the costs and payment terms. If the User wants to entrust the Platform with this mission, he must specifically express this through the account he has created on the Platform, and expressly agree to the conditions. The Platform will send the User a non-exhaustive list of experts for the purpose of conducting this check. The User shall indicate his choice to the Platform through his account. The Platform may also, at the request of the User, ask a service provider to handle both the registration of the vehicle and its homologation. These services will be paid directly to the service providers by the User. The Platform, only used to establish contact, shall under no circumstances be held liable for any difficulty that may arise with respect to the non-completion of the said services. The costs given are for information purposes only, and are by no means contractual. Once all the conditions are duly met by the User for the execution of this mission, the Platform will undertake to have it executed. The inspection file usually comprising: (depending on Experts and/or specific requests from the User): Photos, to get a better appreciation of the condition of the vehicle, whose number shall vary depending on the vehicle and the User’s wishes. The User can ask for a video from the Experts, so as to better assess the condition of the vehicle. A report shall be prepared by the Expert and sent to the User upon receipt by the Platform. After reading this report, the User will decide, with full knowledge, the action he intends to take with regards this purchase. It should be reminded that a vehicle which may be one or several decades old cannot be considered as new, and depending on its asking price, the User should anticipate restoration work depending on what he wants to do with it in the future. The lower the purchase price with respect to the price for the same model in a "restored vehicle" condition, the higher the restoration budget will be for the purchase. The User can never contest a problem with the quality of the vehicle to try to engage the responsibility of the Platform, for any reason whatsoever. The User retains the sole responsibility for his own choices and decisions. The Platform remains totally transparent in all missions entrusted to it by its Principal and in the choice of the said vehicle, and that the final purchase decision comes solely from the user. The Platform will inform the User about the procedure to follow to pay the vehicle directly to the seller. Likewise, for the payment of any deposit which may be requested by the latter, the User expressly commits to the Platform to carry out all the instructions that are sent to him and requested through the site, so that the Platform is never at odds with the sellers and/or service providers selected by himself to carry out the various tasks and/or Missions required to complete his purchase. Furthermore, within the framework of the missions, if the Platform is asked by the User to give his opinion on the vehicle chosen by himself, this will be for information purposes only and not an assessment. Only the use of an "Expert" chosen by the User can be considered as an official opinion, only legally binding the said Expert. The Platform only supplies a non-exhaustive list of experts at the request of the User. The User is entirely free to choose. The Missions proposed by the Platform only aim to provide a maximum number of facilities and comfort to Users in their wish to purchase a vehicle from the USA. By giving the Platform the responsibility for one or several missions, the User accepts without reservations the present General Conditions of Sales and Use, as well as the Platform confidentiality policy. The user declares that he has read and accepts all of the General Conditions of Sales and Use.

Consequently, these elements constitute proof and, if they are produced by the Platform as evidence within the framework of any procedure, shall be admissible, valid and enforceable to parties in the same manner, in accordance with the same conditions and with the same probative force as any document prepared, received or recorded in writing.
The Platform Missions shall be executed either by the Platform itself or by service providers chosen by the Platform or the User. The Missions can be executed at the cost indicated in the quote. With regards costs relating to both management and missions executed by the Platform, the rates vary from a fixed sum for vehicles costing less than 20,000 USD to 2% of the value of vehicles, for vehicles costing more than 500,000 USD.

No specific mission shall be carried out without the express agreement of the User via his personal account. Any discount granted by a seller, on the sales price of a vehicle, following an action taken by the Platform, will be shared by half between the User and the Platform. In such a situation, the Platform will collect the amount of the said discount directly from the seller, and send half of it to the User at the earliest opportunity.
