All interaction on the Site must comply with all applicable laws. Any conduct from a user that, at the sole discretion of SM360 or the Dealership, causes harm to any other user or prevents him from using or visiting the Site is strictly forbidden.

The fact that one of the conditions of the Terms herein is declared void, invalid or not enforceable by law by a court of competent jurisdiction shall not affect the other terms of this legal disclaimer.
