Any person who does not wish to accept these General Terms and Conditions must therefore refrain from using the Site.

The present General Conditions are likely to evolve, the Company reserving the right to modify them at any time. The General Conditions in force are those accessible on the Site under the heading “General Conditions of Use” each time a User connects to the Site.

In the event of modification or updating, the revised General Conditions of Use will be posted on the Site with a mention of the last date of update. The User must therefore check the Site regularly to remain informed of any changes or updates to the General Terms of Use of the Site.

 

  1. Intellectual property

All the elements of the Company’s Website – in particular: its structure, contents, information presented therein, illustrations, photographs, images, sounds and videos, articles, newsletters, presentations, brochures, computer programs – are protected by intellectual property rights and belong exclusively to the Company.

The protected works reproduced on the Site and not belonging to the Company have been the subject of an express and prior authorisation for reproduction by the holder of the rights.

The Company grants Users who access the Site a personal, non-exclusive right to use the Site and its contents. Consequently, Users undertake to respect the intellectual property rights relating to the Site and its component parts and, in particular, not to, without the Company’s prior written consent :

  • reproduce, represent, modify, alter, translate, adapt or redistribute any element contained in or relating to the Site without the prior authorisation of the Company
  • divert or make commercial use of the Site and/or the Services by offering them to third parties, without first seeking the Company’s express consent;
  • extracting, reusing, storing, reproducing, representing or preserving, directly or indirectly, on any medium whatsoever, by any means and in any form whatsoever, all or a qualitatively or quantitatively substantial part of the Site, as well as carrying out repeated and systematic extraction or reuse of qualitatively and quantitatively non-substantial parts when these operations manifestly exceed the conditions for normal use of the Site.

Any act mentioned above without the express authorisation of the Company is therefore prohibited and would constitute an infringement sanctioned by articles L.335-2 et seq. of the Intellectual Property Code.

In particular, the brands and logos (hereinafter collectively referred to as the “Brands”) reproduced on the Site are registered or unregistered Brands belonging exclusively to the Company. No element of the Site may be considered as an incitement or an implicit authorisation to use the Marks published on the Site. Any use requires the prior written consent of the Company.

The news flashes and articles published on the Site or in the newsletter are protected by copyright and may also constitute a database within the meaning of the Intellectual Property Code, any unauthorised extraction of which is strictly prohibited

However, as an exception to the above paragraphs, the Company authorises Users to download for their personal use, newsletters or other documents, property of the Firm, which are made available to Users in the form of electronic files specifically for this purpose.

In this case, and unless otherwise expressly stated in writing by the Firm, the User shall be entitled to retain a copy of such documents, to print them and to share them with third parties, free of charge, for their personal use only, provided that no changes are made to them.

The User may make a short quotation of the content of these documents, provided that the title of the document, where applicable the page or publication number, the name of the Company and, where applicable, the name of the author of the document appear.

 

  1. Hypertexte

The Site may also allow Users to access, via hypertext links placed in the various sections, services published and provided by third parties (hereinafter referred to as “Third Party Services”).

The Third Party Services are offered independently by the partners, advertisers or third party publishers of these services and this, under their sole responsibility. Consequently, the Company cannot be held responsible for the content of the Third Party Services accessible by links appearing on the Site, nor for all of the offers, information consulted or transactions carried out on these Third Party Services; the publishers of the Third Party Services alone are engaged in a contractual relationship with the User.

Consequently, any User accessing the Third Party Services via the Site will thus be subject exclusively to the specific conditions of use and/or sale of the said Third Party Services. The Company will not provide any service or guarantee regarding the Third Party Services used by the Users. Consequently, the Company declines all responsibility in the event that the contents of the Third Party Services contravene the legal and regulatory provisions in force.

In addition, the Company ensures that the Site does not contain any hypertext link allowing direct or indirect access to sites or pages of sites whose content would be contrary to the ethical principles of the legal profession and in the event that the Site should prove to be contrary to the essential principles of the profession, to take without delay all measures to remove them. The Company shall not, however, incur any liability beyond this deontological obligation.

The data, information and documents provided by the Firm on the Website are intended for general information about the Firm, the services it offers to its clients, and the legal profession, and may in no case be considered as constituting legal or professional advice, canvassing, solicitation and/or an offer of services.

Nor shall the Law Firm be liable to Users for any damage resulting from fraudulent intrusion by a third party leading to a modification of the information published on the Website.

5.2 The User

Each User declares, acknowledges and guarantees that he/she will only use the Services and/or the Site in strict compliance with the regulations applicable to his/her activities and that he/she will not include in the Site any element that contravenes the laws and regulations in force.

Each User therefore guarantees the Company against any legal or administrative action, claim, demand or opposition from any administration, or from any natural or legal person invoking an infringement of legal and/or regulatory provisions, a prejudice, an infringement, a right and/or a violation of such a right of which the User’s activity via the Site is directly or indirectly the cause. In this case, the User shall bear all the financial consequences resulting from this and in particular lawyers’ fees, the amount of any sentences pronounced in the context of a court decision as well as compensation and costs of any kind incurred by the Company.

 

  1. Effects of these Conditions

If any provision of these General Terms and Conditions is declared null and void or unenforceable by a competent court, it shall be deemed unwritten and all other provisions of the General Terms and Conditions shall remain in full force and effect unless its unenforceability substantially affects the balance of the General Terms and Conditions.

The Company shall replace the provision declared invalid or unenforceable by a valid and enforceable provision having as far as possible the same effect as the provision declared invalid or unenforceable should have had.

The headings of the articles that are inserted in the General Conditions are for reference purposes only and shall not affect the interpretation of the General Conditions.

 

  1. Applicable law and jurisdiction

These General Conditions are expressly subject to French law. Any dispute relating to the use of the Site and the Services by the Users, relating to the said General Conditions, to their interpretation or to their execution, in the absence of an amicable agreement reached following the occurrence of such a dispute, will be under the exclusive jurisdiction of the Commercial Court of Paris, notwithstanding plurality of defendants or the introduction of third parties, even for conservatory procedures, in summary proceedings or by petition.
