Article 2. Contract

According to the final specifications, the quote with the definition of the services related to it or the purchase order established and completed these general conditions of sale constitute a proposal of contract for which the customer, or his eventual agent for him-even expressly declares to have the power, authority and capacity necessary for its conclusion and for the fulfilment of its obligations. This contract proposal is valid for 30 days from the date it is sent or presented to the customer.

After this period, the rates appearing in it are subject to change and a new quote will be established by the Agence Images In. The contract enters into force and both parties will be committed upon receipt by the Agence Images In of the quote or purchase order duly dated and signed by the customer, bearing the stamp of the customer and the mention "Voucher for agreement" and a copy of this letter initialled and marked “Read and approved”.

 

By express agreement between the customer and the Images In Agency, the act of sending only the quotation or purchase order is equivalent to its acceptance of the terms of the contract and in particular the general conditions of sale that have been given to it.

The order will be accepted by the customer, subject to price increases imposed on the Agence Images In by its own suppliers and to circumstances beyond the control of the Agence Images In that would subsequently make delivery impossible or more expensive.

The period of performance of the contract shall not begin until the fulfilment of the following conditions: receipt of the deposit as identified in Article 9 and provision by the customer of the information and elements and their rights of use necessary for the proper completion of the order as identified in the quote or the validated purchase order.

In the event that the start date does not occur within thirty (30) days of the date of signature of the purchase order or quotation for reasons not exclusively attributable to the Images In agency, the latter will be entitled to an extension of time for the performance of its obligations and a fair adjustment of the price of the contract reflecting the consequences of this delay.

 

Article 3. Conditions of application

Any service performed by Agence Images In implies full and unconditional acceptance by the customer of the terms of the contract. In case of contradiction between the provisions contained in the quotation signed by the customer and those contained in these general conditions of sale, the provisions of the quotation are applicable. In case of special contractual provisions different from these general conditions of sale, the special conditions are applied.

Any new version comes into force the day after its publication on the website www.images-in-france.fr. It will apply to any new proposal or contract amendment issued after the date of publication.

 

Article 6. Cancellation – Force majeure - Unforeseen circumstances

All cases of withdrawal or cancellation due to the fact of the customer, regardless of the causes to the exclusion of causes resulting from major forces, immediately relieves Agence Images In of all obligations towards the customer who will not be able to claim the refund of the sums already paid. These are retained by Agence Images In as an irreducible contractual indemnity for termination of the contract.

Any external event or circumstance beyond the control of the Agence Images In or its subcontractors and suppliers, unpredictable and irresistible within the meaning of Article 1148 of the Civil Code, shall be considered as a Force Majeure event or fortuitous event, independent of the will of the Images In Agency and impeding the performance of the services and goods sold and which could not reasonably be foreseen and avoided and which is not substantially attributable to the Images In Agency (or its subcontractors/suppliers).

 

The Images In Agency will not be considered to be in breach of its contractual obligations, and will not incur any liability towards the customer, for any loss or damage resulting from a breach or delay in the performance of its contractual obligations, if such a breach or delay is attributable to a Force Majeure event. Such as but not limited to: natural disasters, earthquake, hurricane, storms, fires, floods, exceptional weather, major accident, explosion, epidemic, pandemic, disease, quarantine, contamination or other hazardous effects related to a toxic substance, total or partial strikes hindering the smooth running of the Agency Images In or that of one of its suppliers, subcontractors or carriers, or other labour dispute, interruption of transport, or delay due to a force majeure event, acts or omissions of the customer, damage, failure or delay by one or more service providers, any delay by a subcontractor of the Images In Agency to the extent that such delay is attributable and related to any cause deemed excusable under this article, failure of the supply of energy, of raw materials, blocking of telecommunications, blocking of the Internet, breakdown of the equipment disseminating the service, insurrection, hostility, terrorism, riot or demonstration, the facts of the prince, acts of public power, war declared or not, legislation, act, decision or rule of a governmental authority having power over the contract or over the Agency Images In or the customer, such as embargoes or deletion or withdrawal of an export license, or lack of authorization by the said governmental authority within a reasonable time after request.

 

The party wishing to invoke a force majeure event must immediately notify the other party of the beginning and end of that event, otherwise it cannot be discharged from its responsibility.

The Images In Agency will notify the customer of a Force Majeure event as soon as possible after its discovery, and the expiry dates will be automatically extended for a period necessary for the Images In Agency to overcome the effects of such a Force Majeure event.

The Parties shall make every effort to mitigate the losses and damages caused by such a Force Majeure event. However, in the event that the effects of such a Force Majeure event continue for a period exceeding six (6) consecutive months, then Agence Images In will be entitled to terminate the contract and will be paid for all work delivered (or deliverable) or executed until the contract expiry date.

 

Article 7. Acceptance

The certificate of acceptance and/or "ready-to-distribute" (PAD) will constitute final recognition of the conformity of the elements delivered by the Agence Images In.

In the event that the customer has accepted the delivery of his order in whole or in part, he can in no case claim to return it to the Agence Images In and request a refund. No return or cancellation will be accepted on an order of products configured or adapted to the specific needs of the customer.

In the event that the acceptance certificate is not signed by the customer within the aforementioned five (5) day period, and no rejection of the elements concerned has been made within the same period, the acceptance of the said elements shall be deemed to have been acquired and shall have all the effects attached to the acceptance in accordance with the terms of the Agreement.

The Images In Agency provides a user name, generic and specific to a contract, and two passwords: a customer password, allowing the Images In Agency to share contractual data (contract, invoices, ...) with the customer, and a participating password, allowing the client to share data (photographs, documentation, editorial or iconographic elements...) with stakeholders

- Customer area: Private area for the customer and participants of a particular event, accessible online on the Agence Images In website and protected by identification elements.

- Internet: Open and informal network, consisting of the international interconnection of computer networks using the TCP/IP standard. The management of the Internet is not subject to any central entity. Each portion of this network belongs to an independent public or private body. Its operation is based on cooperation between operators of the different networks without any obligation to supply or quality of supply between operators. Networks can have unequal transmission capacities and their own usage policies. No one can guarantee the proper functioning of the Internet as a whole.

- Server: All the hardware, software and links on which the websites are implemented and which make them searchable on the Internet.

- Web : Application de l'Internet permettant la consultation de données de manière conviviale, grâce à des liens créés entre des documents qui peuvent être situés sur n'importe quel serveur. Le document de base du Web est appelé page.

Le client déclare être le propriétaire légal de toutes ses données et ne partager que des données numériques qui n'enfreignent pas les droits de propriété d’autres personnes.

Le client déclare conserver une copie des données qu'il souhaite partager ; à ce titre, l’Agence Images In ne peut être, en aucun cas, tenue pour responsable de la perte ou destruction des fichiers.

Le client déclare être informé que les données circulant sur Internet ne sont pas protégées notamment contre des détournements éventuels : à ce titre, tout partage de données par le client est fait à ses risques et périls.

Le client déclare être informé que l’Agence Images In ne dispose d'aucun moyen de contrôle sur le contenu des services accessibles sur Internet et que les données y circulant peuvent être réglementées en termes d'usage ou être protégées par un droit de propriété ; à ce titre, le client s’engage à se conformer à l’ensemble des lois, règles et réglementations en vigueur concernant l’interdiction de la diffusion d’images pornographiques ou obscènes, et à ne pas utiliser ce site en contravention à toute loi, règle ou réglementation.

Le client reconnaît être informé qu'il est seul responsable de l'usage des données qu'il consulte, interroge et transfère sur Internet et que les images perçues comme contrevenant aux lois, règles ou réglementations en vigueur pourront être remises par l’Agence Images In aux autorités chargées de faire respecter la loi, qui les traiteront en conséquence.

The customer undertakes to keep the identification elements strictly confidential. It undertakes not to disclose the customer password to third parties in any form whatsoever and to only disclose the password "participants" to the parties involved in the contract. As access to the customer area is only possible and authorised with the identification elements provided exclusively to the customer by the Images In Agency, any access with these elements is therefore deemed to have been carried out in full by the customer and under his responsibility.

The customer undertakes not to damage the physical or computer integrity of the Agence Images In server by using programs and/or files infected with a virus or “viruses”, “worms” and other computer programs to disrupt the operation of a computer station and/or take control of it remotely.
