Visitors are required to:
- Make prior appointment for service by calling the hotline 2929 2222;
- Wear surgical face masks and take a body temperature check before entering the Centres;
- Wait in a designated waiting area in order to reduce social contacts with other visitors.

False or Misleading Trade Descriptions
|Smart Eye：||The Trade Descriptions Ordinance! Beware of False or Misleading Trade Descriptions!|
|Salesperson：||Let me introduce this Superb Entertainment Package to you! We have “Drama Series Channel” for Korean drama only.
“A Beauty…Actually” will be exclusively broadcasted to you!
Sign the 2-year contract and enjoy our discount on monthly fee! No more dilly-dallying!
|Mom：||Exclusive Korean drama? Okay! I will sign it!|
|Super：||A week later…|
“A Beauty…Actually” is now on “Popular Soap Channel” only? That means I can’t watch it? But the salesman promised it was exclusive on “Drama Series Channel” when I signed the contract!
It’s a total deceit!
