We also remind you that non-affiliated websites are subject to their own terms and conditions of use.

Alpes Technologies has implemented measures to ensure the security of the personal data collected on the Website. However, Alpes Technologies would like to draw the attention of the user to the possible risk in terms of confidentiality of the data, due to the way the Internet operates.
