1.1 In order to access and use E-commerce, the Visitor and the User must accept these Terms. Therefore, free, express, informed, and without any reservations, acceptance is made by clicking the "I Accept the Terms" button.

2.1 Users under 18 (eighteen) years of age must have their registration performed and authorized by a legal guardian, who must also be identified when providing the registration data.
2.2 Some features and functionalities of E-commerce are intended only for Users who meet specific requirements, which will be determined based on the User's personal registration data, such as age and other criteria specified by Specialized. Therefore, by accepting these Terms, the User declares that the mere registration does not necessarily mean full access to E-commerce functionalities, and Specialized may restrict access at its sole discretion.
2.3 The User may choose to link their access to E-commerce to their social media account on Facebook or through their Google account. In these situations, Specialized will collect public information available on the User's profile, necessary for their identification for access to E-commerce.
