Terms of Use of the Website

ARTICLE 1 - Definitions

These Terms of Use could be amended subsequently.

In the body of the Terms of Use and on the Website, each of the terms below must be understood as defined by its definition.

SPAC: A trade association, governed by the provisions of the law of March 21, 1884 and subsequent laws applicable to trade associations and by its articles of association submitted on March 2, 2019 in the Town Hall of Aix-en-Provence, in accordance with Article L. 2131-3 of the French Labor Code.

Its head office is located at 31 Parc du Golf - CS90519 - 13593 Aix-en-Provence.


User(s): Any legal or natural person who uses the Websites.


ARTICLE 2 - Contractual documents


The contractual documents are these Terms of Use and the SPAC Privacy Policy.

The purpose of the Terms of Use is to define the conditions under which SPAC provides the User with a personal and non-exclusive right of access to the Websites.


ARTICLE 3 - Obligations of the User


The User undertakes to comply with these Terms of Use.

In particular, he/she undertakes to enter and transmit the Data in a rigorous manner, in compliance with the transmission formats, terms and frequencies provided for.

It is up to the User to ensure, under his/her responsibility, the accuracy and completeness of the data transmitted.

He/she shall pay particular attention to keeping his/her credentials confidential.

The use of the Websites by the User must not contravene the national and international laws, regulations, charters of use or ethics in force.

The User, through his/her behaviour and the information to be processed, undertakes not to infringe the rights of third parties, particularly by: distributing material protected by intellectual, literary, artistic or industrial property rights; or by distributing information, images or sounds amounting to press offences such as defamation, libel or that could be classed as denigrating or damaging to privacy, public order and morality.

The User acknowledges that he/she is solely responsible for the data he/she processes and stores via the Websites.

The User thus guarantees any third-party recourse against SPAC. This guarantee includes court costs and the fees of lawyers, bailiffs and experts mobilised to defend SPAC. The User undertakes to compensate SPAC for any harmful consequences directly or indirectly related to the use he/she makes of the Websites.

The User acknowledges that he/she knows the risks specific to the Internet network and the limitations in terms of data security. As such, it particularly recognises the impossibility of a total guarantee of the security of data exchanges.


ARTICLE 4 - Agreement on evidence

By common agreement between the Parties, the computer records kept by SPAC are evidence of the transmissions and processing carried out. It is SPAC's responsibility to keep these records under conditions guaranteeing the security and integrity of the data.

All material relating to the use of the account will be kept and archived by SPAC. SPAC may avail itself, especially for evidentiary purposes, of any act, file, record, follow-up report or statistics on any media whose computer support is established, received or stored by it.  These evidentiary procedures are a presumption which can only be reversed if there is evidence that SPAC’s recording and storing means were actually failing.


ARTICLE 5 - Intellectual property

All of the Websites are covered by French and international legislation on copyright and intellectual property. All reproduction rights are reserved, including for downloadable documents and iconographic and photographic representations.

Any representation and/or reproduction and/or partial or total exploitation of the Websites, by any means whatsoever, without the express and prior authorisation of the Administrator of the websites is prohibited and constitutes an infringement within the meaning of Articles L.335-2 and following of the French Intellectual Property Code.

  • clear and legible quotation of the source mentioning the Internet addresses of the websites.


The hypertext links implemented within the website towards other websites and/or personal pages and generally towards all existing resources on the Internet cannot engage the responsibility of SPAC.


The gathering of nominative information to enrich databases, for example for commercial or advertising purposes, is prohibited. SPAC cannot be held responsible for any damage or virus that could infect your computer or any computer equipment following use or access to the site or downloading from the Websites.

All texts and illustrations on the Websites are subject to copyright. Their reproduction for personal use is accepted but their unauthorised modification or distribution is prohibited. SPAC does not guarantee the accuracy of the information contained on the Websites or its suitably for a particular purpose.

Links to other websites may cause you to leave the Websites; we accept no responsibility for the linked websites. These links are established in good faith and we cannot be held responsible for any changes to these websites.

Please contact SPAC directly if you have any questions or comments regarding the information presented on the Websites.


ARTICLE 6 - Responsibility

With regard to the commitments contained in the Terms of Use, SPAC is only bound by an obligation of means concerning access to services that depend on the Internet.

The Parties expressly agree that SPAC will also not be held responsible for service interruptions or damages related in particular to:

  • a force majeure event or a decision from the authorities;

  • an interruption of the electricity supply or transmission lines caused by public or private operators;

  • abnormal or fraudulent use by the User or third parties requiring the service to be stopped for security reasons;

  • a malfunction of the hardware or software solutions hosted, access to the User’s Internet network or misuse of the Websites by the User;

  • an intrusion or fraudulent maintenance of a third party in the system, or illegal data mining, despite the implementation of security means according to the current state of the art, with SPAC only having an obligation of means with regard to known security techniques;

  • the nature and content of the information and data created and/or communicated by the User; more generally, with SPAC not being responsible for data, information, results or analyses from a third party transmitted or received through the use of the Websites;

  • a delay in the routing of information and data;

  • the operation of the Internet network or telephone or Internet access cable networks not implemented by SPAC.

In any case, by mutual agreement between the Parties, SPAC's responsibility excludes tangible and intangible damages.

ARTICLE 7 - Tolerances


It is formally agreed that any tolerance or waiver by one of the Parties, pursuant to all or part of the commitments provided for in the Terms of Use, whatever the frequency and duration may have been, shall not be considered as a modification of the Terms of Use or generate any rights.


ARTICLE 8 - Applicable law - Language of the contract


By express agreement between the Parties, the Terms of Use are subject to French law, to the exclusion of any other legislation.

The contract resulting from the Terms of Use is written in French. If it is translated into one or more languages, only the French text shall prevail in case of dispute.
