ARTICLE 8: LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

Participation in the free prize draw implies knowledge and acceptance of the characteristics and limitations of the internet, including with regards to technical performance, response times to consult, question or transfer information, risks of interruption, and more generally, the risks inherent in every internet connection and transmission, the absence of protection for some data against possible misappropriation and risks of contamination by possible viruses circulating on the network.

It is specified that the Organising Company cannot be held liable for any damage either direct or indirect arising from an interruption, a malfunction in the internet network, telephone lines, reception equipment impeding the smooth running of the game and for whatever reason as the case may be that may result from participation in the game. It shall be incumbent on all participants to take all appropriate steps to protect their own data and/or software stored on their computer equipment against all breaches. Moreover, the Organising Company shall not be held liable in any event for downloading or routing problems or the loss of emails or postal letters. The Organising Company exempts itself from any liability regarding any case of technical malfunction, any defects or anomalies in equipment or software of whatever sort, viruses, bugs, etc.) incurred on the computer equipment of participants and/or the data stored thereon and for any sort of consequences that may ensue on their professional or commercial activity.

The Organising Company shall not incur any liability if in the event of force majeure or events beyond its control (including technical problems, etc.) disrupting the organisation or management of the free prize draw where it will be forced to cut short, extend, postpone, change or cancel the game.

In such circumstances, the Organising Company will put in place the technical means to inform participants on the Organising Company's website.

The Organising Company will do its utmost to allow access to the free prize draw on the website at all times, without being obliged in any way to achieve this. The Organising Company may at any time, including for technical updating reasons, or maintenance, interrupt access to the website and free prize draw that it contains. The Organising Company shall not be held liable in any way for these interruptions and their consequences.

Connection to the game by each individual is their own entire responsibility.

The Organising Company may cancel all or part of the free prize draw if it appears that there has been any fraudulent activity of any type whatsoever, particularly via computer in the context of any participation in the game or in the determination of the winners. It reserves, in this scenario, the right not to award prizes to fraudsters and/or to bring authors of these frauds before the competent courts.

It will incur no liability whatsoever vis-à-vis participants who are responsible for fraud – for example,  where a participant uses one or more fictitious or borrowed names from one or more third parties. Any fraud shall result in the elimination of the participant.

The Organising Company declines any liability for any incidents and/or accidents that could occur during the tenure of the prize awarded and/or by the fact of its use, except that nothing in these Rules excludes any liability that cannot be limited by law, including personal injury or death caused by negligence.

 

ARTICLE 9: MODIFICATION, CANCELLATION, SUSPENSION, DISQUALIFICATION

The Organising Company reserves the right to cut short, extend, postpone, amend, or cancel the free prize draw, at any time and without prior notice if circumstances so dictate.  

In such circumstances, the Organising Company will put in place all the means to give participants information about these amendments or changes by any appropriate means.

Participants will be deemed to have accepted any amendment by their participation in the free prize draw. Any participant who rejects any amendment must stop participating in the free prize draw.

The Organising Company may suspend or cancel participation by one or several participants, in the event of finding any suspect behaviour which may be, without this list being exhaustive: the implementation of an electronic registration system, connection by several individuals and different computer workstations coming from the same identifier, i.e., from the same profile registered on the website registration database, an unusual winning rate, an attempt to force the servers of the Organising Company, multiple accounts, etc.

The Organising Company is the sole decision-maker for the exclusion or reintegration of the participants concerned in view of the information in its possession. In the event of a claim, participants must show evidence that they adopted behaviour in compliance with these Rules.

The Organising Company shall not be held liable for this.

In order to give an equal chance to all participants in this free prize draw, the Organising Company reserves the right not to award the prize to fraudsters and/or to bring the authors of such frauds before the competent courts.

ARTICLE 11: AGREEMENT ON EVIDENCE

The Organising Company has put in place the technical means needed to demonstrate the participation or non-participation of an internet user. It is thus agreed that, except in the case of an obvious error, the data contained in the IT systems of the Organising Company have probative force or evidentiary weight as regards the connection elements and information resulting from data processing related to the free prize draw. It is agreed that, excepting the case of manifest error, the Organising Company may rely on, in particular for the purposes of proving any act, fact or omission, the programmes, data, files, registrations, operations and other elements (such as monitoring reports or other reports) of a nature or in or on IT or electronic formats or media, prepared, received or maintained directly or indirectly by the Organising Company, and in particular on its IT systems.  Participants undertake not to challenge the admissibility, validity or evidentiary proof of the aforementioned elements in kind or in computer or electronic format or support, based upon some legal provision as such and that would specify that some documents must be written or signed by the parties to constitute proof.

Thus the elements considered to constitute proof and, if they are produced as the means of proof by the Organising Company in any litigious dispute or other, they will be admissible, valid and enforceable between the parties in the same way, under the same conditions and with the same evidential weight as any document drawn up, received or kept in writing.

 

ARTICLE 12: GENERAL PROVISIONS

These Rules are subject to the laws of England and Wales.

In the event that one of the clauses of these Rules should be declared null and void, this shall not affect the validity and enforceability of the rest of the Rules.
