This Site presents non-contractual information on the Laboratoires dermatologiques Avène for the purposes of describing all of their products, but does not intend to provide a direct purchase offer for a product or service (unless expressly stated otherwise).

As the present Site is updated to take all activities into account, some new information or announcements may no longer be valid at the time they are displayed or they may simply be out of date. Laboratoires dermatologiques Avène cannot guarantee that all information or news available on the present Site is up to date, although every effort is made to ensure this is the case.

The Site may be called upon to disclose personal information if it is required to identify, contact or pursue legal actions against an individual who may damage or violate (intentionally or not) the rights or ownership of the Site, other Site users or any other person who may be harmed by such use.


Laboratoires dermatologiques Avène undertake to ensure that the content of their Site complies with the laws in effect in France

Laboratoires dermatologiques Avène undertake in particular not to display information that breaches third party rights or that is of a violent, pornographic or defamatory nature, and also not to display illegal content, in particular, racist, xenophobic or pedophilic content, or other content that may violate human dignity.

We do not guarantee in any way that this information is accurate, complete and up to date.

Use of Advice displayed on the Site

Online computerized diagnostic applications and user guides that include beauty and health recommendations are made available to you on the Site so you can obtain advice on beauty and healthcare.

In this regard, you may not copy or reproduce all or part of the Applications by any means and on any medium, whether existing or future, nor translate the Applications into any other language or adapt said Applications.

Although the Site has taken the measures required to ensure the reliability of the information and services available on the Site, it may not be held liable for errors, omissions, viruses or results that may result from a poor use thereof. The Site is in fact bound by an obligation of means only.

Laboratoires dermatologiques Avène, their management and employees may not be held liable:
  •     For damage of any type resulting from a connection to, access to or use of the present Site
  •     For damages that directly or indirectly result from a visit to this Site or the use of the information it makes available

More generally, Laboratoires dermatologiques Avène do not provide any express or tacit guarantee for all or part of the site.

Visitors undertake to not voluntarily or involuntarily introduce viruses or files of any type whatsoever that may disrupt the Site’s operations; otherwise, they will be held fully liable in this regard.

Laboratoires dermatologiques Avène may initiate legal actions against visitors who do not respect the above.

The user states and guarantees that he or she is perfectly aware of the characteristics and limitations of the Internet, in particular in terms of data and information transmission over the Internet only being of relative technical reliability, said information transiting over heterogeneous networks with varied characteristics and technical capacities that may disrupt or prevent access during certain periods.

The Site endeavors to maintain access to its pages 24/7, but is not bound by any obligation to guarantee said access.

You are solely responsible for any use of a link to any other site.
