PLACE OF OPERATION
Groupe Contex Inc. operates its Websites from its offices in Canada. Contex Group Inc. makes no representation that any of the materials on its Websites may be used in other locations. Those who choose to use the Websites do so on their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with all applicable laws in their jurisdiction.
All content posted on the Websites refers to our server time (TMG-5); in the event of a discrepancy between the time of publication of a Website’s offer and the time of the third-party provider’s offer, the third-party provider’s time will always prevail.
