For the purposes of establishing anti-money laundering and counter-terrorism financing measures, G&F NET has implemented measures and procedures to prevent and detect Money Laundering in accordance with the recommendations of the Financial Action Task Force (on Money-Laundering) (FATF).

In such circumstances, the Client is hereby informed (i) that the contract that he/she has entered into with G&F NET is purely personal and nominative and (ii) that it cannot be assigned to a third party, regardless of the form of assignment (Transfer of the Client's client account, Login Details, certificate of deposit, as well as any other element relating to the CGV, CPE, CPG), except in the circumstances provided for by Law (inheritance, divorce, etc.).

14      LIABILITY

14.1Ordinary law

G&F NET cannot be held liable, unless the Client establishes misconduct by G&F NET. In such circumstances, G&F NET's liability shall be limited to the direct and foreseeable losses directly resulting therefrom.

The following are regarded as indirect losses and consequently do not grant entitlement to compensation:

14.1.1    any legal action instigated by a third party against G&F NET;

14.1.2    any actual or expected loss of profit;

14.1.3    any loss caused by a business interruption;

14.1.4    any loss by the Client or to the Client's reputation.

The Parties expressly agree that the loss limitation referred to in this article shall continue to apply even after termination of the Agreement.

14.2Limitation of liability

AS A KEY DECIDING FACTOR OF THESE CPG, IF THE SERVICE PROVIDER WERE TO BE HELD LIABLE IN ACCORDANCE WITH ARTICLE 14, THE CLIENT SHALL NOT BE ENTITLED TO ANY COMPENSATION, DAMAGES OR SETTLEMENT WHATSOEVER, ON ANY GROUNDS WHATSOEVER, OTHER THAN THE AMOUNT OF THE PAYMENTS MADE BY THE CLIENT IN RESPECT OF THE GARDIENOR™ SERVICE PROVIDED TO THE CLIENT IN THE YEAR IN WHICH THE EVENT CAUSING THE DAMAGE OCCURRED.

15      PAYMENT DEFAULT - SUSPENSION - TERM

In the event that the Client fails to comply with any of his/her obligations and unless the Parties agree otherwise and provided reasonable prior notice is given, G&F NET reserves the right to suspend the supply of the GARDIENOR™ Service, until such time as the Client has fully complied with his/her obligations.

In the event that the Client fails to pay within 48 hours from receipt of the email requesting payment of the fee that is sent to the Client in accordance with Article 8.2, G&F NET shall notify the Client and order him/her to remedy the situation as quickly as possible. A failure by the Client to pay by the due date shall result in the suspension of the GARDIENOR™ Service and the enforcement of the retention of title clause set forth in Article 9.

All provisions referred to in the previous paragraph shall automatically apply, without the need for prior notice, simply due to non-compliance with just one contractual payment date, without prejudice to any damages that G&F NET may be entitled to claim and/or to the application of this Article.

If the Client knowingly provides inaccurate or unreliable information, and deliberately fails to update the information supplied to the Service Provider or fails to reply to the Service Provider's requests, and in particular to requests relating to the accuracy of the information supplied by the Client, the GARDIENOR™ Service shall be automatically suspended.

No suspension, termination or removal of the GARDIENOR™ Service due to the Client's breaches alone, including in the circumstances set forth in Article 15, shall result in any compensation in favour of the Client. Moreover, in such circumstances, any reimbursements of the GARDIENOR™ Service will not be passed on to the Client.

16      FORCE MAJEURE

Any event that is beyond the control of either party and/or of their subcontractors and which said party/subcontractor could not reasonably avoid, constitutes a force majeure event and as such suspends performance of the parties' obligations. Such events include, but are not limited to: a strike or technical breakdown (EDF, ERDF, telecoms operators, Internet access providers, hosting services, Registrars, etc.), energy supply interruptions (electricity, etc.), breakdown of the electronic communications network used by G&F NET and/or any network that may replace such network.

Neither Party shall be held liable or deemed to have breached their obligations hereunder in respect of any failure to perform that is connected to an event of force majeure as defined by law and French case law, provided said Party (i) notified the other Party thereof and (ii) did everything possible to minimise the damage and perform their obligations as quickly as possible after the event of force majeure has ended.

In the event that such an event occurs, the agreement entered into by the Client and G&F Net shall be suspended for a thirty (30) day period as from the occurrence of said event of force majeure. At the end of the thirty-day period, the Parties agree to enter into discussions in order to find an alternative solution. If after fifteen (15) days of discussions, the Parties have not found a solution, the Agreement shall be automatically cancelled or terminated and no compensation shall be payable to either Party.

17      END OF THE AGREEMENT

Save as set out in this agreement and the CGV, once this agreement between the Client and G&F Net has expired or is terminated, neither party shall have any liability vis-à-vis the other party with regards to the performance hereof.

18      CORRESPONDENCE - PROOF

19      SUBCONTRACTING

20      MISCELLANEOUS

20.1In the event of the closure, relocation or bankruptcy of the banking Service Provider that owns the safe-deposit box used for the storage of the Client's Products, G&F NET reserves the right to find a similar equivalent secure storage solution from the same banking Service Provider or any other organisation that provides comparable services of this kind.

20.2The Client is hereby informed that these CPG may be modified at any time.

G&F NET shall notify the Client of any changes to these CPG at least fifteen (15) days prior to the date on which said changes take effect. If the Client rejects such changes, he/she may terminate the Service within a maximum of four (4) months as from notification thereof or request that the former General Terms and Conditions continue to apply until expiry of his/her Agreement. G&F NET reserves the right to amend, at any time, the characteristics of the Service Provider's service, provided these modifications do not involve significant changes. In such circumstances, G&F NET shall notify the Clients of such change fifteen (15) days before such changes take effect.

These CPG and the CPV constitute the entire agreement between the parties in relation to the subject matter thereof. They supersede all proposals, commercial offers, letters exchanged prior and subsequent hereto, as well as all other provisions that appear in the documents exchanged by the parties relating to the subject matter of these CPG and/ or the CPV, unless an addendum is duly signed by the representatives of both parties.

If one or more provisions of these CPG are deemed invalid or declared invalid pursuant to a law, regulation or binding decision of a competent court, the remaining provisions of these CPG shall remain in full force and effect

Any failure by either party to temporarily or permanently require performance of any of the terms hereof shall not operate as a waiver of the rights of said party.

21      GOVERNING LAW - JURISDICTION

In the event of a difficulty regarding the interpretation and/or performance of these CPG, the Parties hereby agree to submit their dispute to an amicable settlement procedure prior to any legal action. All disputes arising out of or in connection with this Agreement shall to the extent possible be settled amicably by negotiation between the parties within 30 days from the date of written notice by either party of the existence of such a dispute and, failing such amicable settlement, shall be finally settled by the competent Courts of Paris as set out below.

 

This Agreement is governed by French law.

In the event that a dispute arises in respect of these CPG, the interpretation and consequences hereof or in respect of the deeds that supplement or modify these CPG, the parties expressly agree that the competent Courts of Paris shall have sole jurisdiction, notwithstanding multiple defendants, the introduction of third parties, summary or expert proceedings.
