Article 9 : Reimboursement of Expenses Associated with the Game
The expenses associated with the game will be reimbursed in accordance with the conditions described below:
Access to the Application and participation in the game are entirely open and free, so the expenses for connecting to the Application, incurred by the Participant, will be reimbursed to him/her in accordance with the terms and conditions below.
"The Organiser" retains a record, for each Participant, of the dates and times that he/she connects to and disconnects from the site, and also the connection time.
A single reimbursement per month and per household (same surname, same postal address) is allowed, provided that the Participant is resident in France and is within the normal conditions of use of the Application, with it being made clear that it is expressly agreed that a normal use of the Application cannot exceed 15 minutes per day.
Given that, in the current state of servicing and technical offers, some Internet service providers offer a free or fixed price connection to Internet users, it is expressly agreed that any access to the Application effected on a free or fixed price basis (such as, inter alia, connection by cable, ADSL or dedicated line) may not give rise to any reimbursement, provided that the subscription to the service provider's services is, in such a case, signed up for by the Internet user for his/her use of the Internet in general and that the fact that the Participant connects to the Application and takes part in the game does not cause him/her any additional expense or disbursement.
In the case of a fee-based connection invoiced at pro rata of the period of time online, the expenses for connecting to the Application to take part in the game will be reimbursed by cheque, on request from the Participant sent in the month of the disbursement of those expenses, with the postmark being deemed conclusive proof, within two months of receipt of the Participant's request.
In the case of a connection forming part of a fixed price for a specific period and, beyond that period, invoiced at pro rata of the period of time online, the expenses for connecting to the Application will be reimbursed to the Participant if it is established that the Participant has exceeded the fixed price allowance that he/she had and that said allowance was exceeded as a result of connecting to the Application. To obtain reimbursement of his/her connection expenses, and also the postal expenses of his/her reimbursement request, the Participant must send
"The Organiser" a written request, issued on plain paper, containing the following information:
- his/her first name, surname and home postal address
- the dates, times and periods of his/her connections to the Application
- a copy of the detailed invoice from the telephone operator and/or the Internet service provider with which he/she is subscribed, showing the dates and times of his/her connections to the Application.
The postal expenses needed for the request for the reimbursement of the connection expenses will be reimbursed, on request, based on the lowest-priority postal rate in force.
Article 10 : Rules of the Game
The rules can be sent free of charge (postal costs reimbursed on request), to any person asking "The Organiser" to send them.
"The Organiser" reserves the right to extend, cut short, amend or cancel the game at any time, particularly in the event of force majeure, without the Participants being able to claim any compensation.
Article 11 : Industrial and Intellectual Property
The reproduction, representation or use of all or part of the elements making up the game, including these rules, are strictly forbidden.
All trademarks, logos, texts, images, videos and other distinctive signs reproduced on the site and on the sites to which the site allows access by means of hyperlinks are the exclusive property of their holders and are protected in this regard, on a worldwide basis, by the provisions of the French Intellectual Property Code (Code de la propriété intellectuelle). Their unauthorised reproduction constitutes an infringement punishable by criminal sanctions.
Any unauthorised full or partial reproduction of these trademarks, logos and signs constitutes an infringement punishable by criminal sanctions.
Participation in this game means the full and complete acceptance of these rules by the Participants.
Article 12 : Liability
"The Organiser" cannot be held liable in the event of force majeure or unforeseeable circumstances outside of its control.
"The Organiser" cannot be held liable and no legal action may be initiated against it in the event of the occurrence of events having the characteristics of force majeure (strikes, bad weather, etc.) partially or totally depriving the Participants of the possibility of taking part in the game and/or depriving the winners of the benefit of their Prize.
"The Organiser" and its service providers and partners may not, under any circumstance, be held liable for any incidents that might occur during the use of the Prizes by the beneficiaries.
Also, "The Organiser" and its service providers and partners may not be held liable for the loss or the theft of the Prizes by the beneficiaries if the winners have taken possession of them. The winners are fully responsible for any additional cost needed to take possession of the Prizes, without them being able to ask for any compensation from "The Organiser" or from the service providers or partners.
Article 13 : Disputes & Complaints
These rules are governed by French law.
"The Organiser" reserves the right to resolve, without appeal, any issue that may occur regarding the interpretation or the application of these rules, with it being understood that no objection will be allowed in particular regarding the terms and conditions of the game, the results, the winnings or the receipt thereof, one month after the end of the game.
Other than in the case of obvious errors, it is agreed that the information arising from the gaming systems of "The Organiser" constitutes conclusive evidence in any dispute regarding the connection data and the computerised processing of such information relating to the game.
Any complaint must be sent within one month of the end date of the game to
"The Organiser". Once this date has passed, no complaint will be accepted. Participation in the game means full acceptance of these rules.
Article 14 : Agreement in Relation to Proof
By express agreement between the Participant and "The Organiser", only the computer systems and files of "The Organiser" will be decisive.
The computerised records, stored in the computer systems of "The Organiser", at reasonable conditions of security and reliability, are deemed to be proof of the relations and communications between "The Organiser" and the Participant.
It is therefore agreed that, except in the case of an obvious error, "The Organiser" may, particularly for the purposes of proving any act, fact or omission, make use of programmes, data, files, records, operations and other elements (such as monitoring reports or other documents) of a computerised or electronic nature or in a computerised or electronic format or medium, drawn up, received or kept directly or indirectly by "The Organiser", in particular in its information systems.
The above elements thus constitute proof and, if they are produced as evidence by "The Organiser" in any legal or other proceedings, they will be admissible, valid and enforceable between the parties in the same way, at the same conditions and with the same conclusiveness as any document issued, received or kept in writing.
The operations of any sort carried out with the help of the user ID and the code allocated to a Participant, following registration, are presumed, indisputably, to have been carried out under the Participant's liability.
