Definitions of the terms

We will then designate:

  • “Site” or “Service”: the https://www.iopool.com site and all its pages.
  • “Publisher”: iopool, the legal or natural person responsible for the edition and content of the Site.
  • “User”: the Internet user visiting and using the Services of the Site.

These General Terms and Conditions of Use (hereinafter referred to as the “T&Cs”) are offered by the Site Publisher. The Site User is invited to carefully read these T&Cs, to print them and/or to save them on a durable medium. The User acknowledges having read the T&Cs and accepts them in full and without reservation.

Article 1 – Application of the T&Cs

The purpose of these T&Cs is to define the conditions of access to the Site by Users. The Publisher reserves the right to modify the T&Cs at any time by publishing a new version of them on the Site. The T&Cs applicable to the User are those in force on the day of his acceptance.

The Site is freely accessible to all Users. The acquisition of a product or service, or the creation of a member area, or more generally the navigation on the Site implies the acceptance, by the User, of all the present T&Cs, which he/she acknowledges having fully read them.

This acceptance may consist, for example, for the User, in ticking the box corresponding to the acceptance sentence of these T&Cs, with the words “I acknowledge having read and accepted all the general conditions of the Site”. Checking this box will be deemed to have the same value as a handwritten signature from the User.

The User acknowledges the evidential value of the Publisher’s automatic registration systems for this Site and, unless he provides proof to the contrary, he waives the right to contest them in the event of a dispute.

The acceptance of these T&Cs presupposes that the Users have the necessary legal capacity to do so. If the User is a minor or does not have this legal capacity, he/she declares that he/she has the authorisation of a tutor, a curator or his/her legal representative.

The Publisher makes available to the Client, on its Site, a confidentiality charter specifying all the information relating to the use of the Client’s personal data collected by the Publisher and the rights that the Client has with regard to these personal data. The data privacy policy is part of the T&Cs. Acceptance of these T&Cs therefore implies acceptance of the Data Privacy Policy.

Article 3 – Member area

The User registered on the Site (member) has the possibility to access it by logging in using his login details (email address defined at registration and password) or possibly by using systems such as third-party social network login buttons. The user is fully responsible for protecting the password he or she has chosen. He is encouraged to use complex passwords. If the password is forgotten, the User has the possibility to generate a new one. This password is the guarantee of the confidentiality of the information contained in his “my account” section and the User is therefore prohibited from transmitting or communicating it to a third party. Failing this, the Site Editor cannot be held responsible for unauthorized access to a User’s account.

The creation of a personal space is an essential prerequisite for any order or contribution from the User on this Site. To this end, the User will be asked to provide a certain amount of personal information. It is committed to providing accurate information.

The purpose of data collection is to create a “member account”. If the data contained in the member account section were to disappear as a result of a technical failure or a case of force majeure, the Site and its Publisher could not be held liable, as this information has no probative value but only an informative nature. The pages relating to member accounts are freely printable by the account holder in question but do not constitute proof, they are only informative in nature and are intended to ensure the efficient management of the service or contributions by the User.

Each User is free to close his account and data on the Site. To do this, he must send an e-mail to iopool indicating that he wishes to delete his account. No recovery of its data will then be possible.

The Publisher reserves the exclusive right to delete the account of any User who has violated these GTU (in particular, but without this example being exhaustive in any way, when the User has knowingly provided incorrect information, when registering and creating his personal space) or any account that has not been active for at least one year. Such deletion shall not be likely to constitute damage to the excluded User who shall not be entitled to any compensation as a result. This exclusion is not exclusive of the possibility for the Publisher to take legal action against the User, when the facts justify it.

Article 4 – Access and availability of the Site

The Publisher makes its best efforts to make the Site accessible at all times, subject to the maintenance operations of the Site or the servers on which it is hosted.
