    3. After filling in and sending the registration form by the User and its acceptance by Sigma in terms of compliance with the Terms of Use, a registration confirmation is sent to the e-mail address specified in the form.

Sigma reserves the right that graphics or photographs of Products may differ from their actual appearance, although Sigma makes every effort to ensure that graphics or photographs included in Product information reflect the actual appearance of the Products as much as possible. Any discrepancy between a graphic or photograph and the actual appearance of the Product may not give rise to any claim against Sigma.
    5. The prices specified for the Products are of indicative nature. The final prices of individual Products are presented when Sigma makes an offer in response to a request or inquiry. All prices of the Products are net prices (excluding VAT).
  5. Accepting requests and responding to enquiries

No agreements between Sigma and Users are concluded, and no statements of intent to conclude a contract are made through the Platform.
    2. A registered user who is logged in to an Account makes a request by selecting Products of interest to them on the Platform.
    3. Once the User has made a request, the User will receive an automatic e-mail with the confirmation of the request. The request will be verified by Sigma for Product availability.

    7. An unregistered User may, using the e-mail form available on the Platform, submit an inquiry to Sigma regarding the Products. Sigma shall respond to the inquiries sent by e-mail, to the address provided by the User in the form, which occurs outside the Platform and does not constitute a Service provided within the Platform. If the content of the inquiry permits, Sigma's response may constitute a binding Sigma offer to sell the Products.
