Article 6. Providing of and access to the Electronic Signature Service

Use documentation relative to the IT applications is available, specifically, online.

The Service Provider will provide start-up support services as presented in the order form, relative to defining settings for features and hosted IT applications. Upon signature of this document and conditional on receipt of the related payments for the services requested, the Service Provider shall provide the Client with an identifier to enable them to access the service via the portal. Upon first use, each user will receive an email from the Service Provider to confirm the validity of the email address. The Client can then set their own password. Use of the SaaS services equates to acceptance of such services. The identification of the Client or the user using the identifier provided or their email address as well as the password chosen by the Client is irrefutable proof of the actions carried out by the latter using this identifier and password. The Service Provider assigns a disk space quota to the Client dedicated to hosting content. The volume of this disk space is defined in the order form or, by default, is set at 5 Gigabytes. The Client may order additional storage space. Any additional use of disk space in excess of the quota may be automatically invoiced at the full current pricing. At the Client’s request, the Service Provider may provide training services to users. All fees and charges shall be invoiced to the Client based on the latest annual catalogue of the Service Provider’s services as of the date of the request. If the Client requests the related service (designated encrypted database), the Service Provider undertakes to quantify the data and the documents.

The Client’s identifiers and passwords for all users are confidential, unique and personal. The Client alone is responsible for their use.

The Client undertakes to ensure that each user keeps their chosen password secret. The Service Provider authorises one connection per identifier and per password. In the event of loss or theft of the password, the Client or the User undertakes to change the password using the feature for such cases.

The Service Provider undertakes to provide remote access to the IT applications 24/7. The Service Provider nevertheless reserves the right to restrict access to the services, either partially or fully, to ensure the maintenance, in line with the planned framework, of its IT systems and infrastructure necessary for the provision of the services. As far as possible, the Service Provider shall endeavour to ensure the IT applications are not unavailable for an excessive period of time. The Service Provider may suspend the server connection or the accessibility of the hosted content at any time if the Client fails to fulfil its obligations, particularly if it seems that the hosted content constitutes a threat to the security of the Service Providers’ network, given the current state of the art. If the Service Provider is obliged to take measures to secure, back up and/or reinstall the Server, other equipment in its network, or software, due to the risk created by the Client’s content hosted by the Service Provider, these services may be invoiced to the Client.

In the event of Client non-compliance with its obligations, the Service Provider reserves the right to automatically suspend access to the Electronic Signature Service without notice.

The various policies are available on request.

Article 8. Agreement on proof

The Client expressly agrees that any Document signed in a paperless manner by means of the Electronic Signature Service, in compliance with these General Terms of Use, constitutes the original of the Document. Consequently, the Document will have the same probative value as a paper document bearing a handwritten signature, will be opposable to the Client and the Signatory and may be produced in court as literal evidence.

In order to be able to produce the Electronically Signed Document in court, the Client may be required to provide proof of verification of the Signatory’s identity information, such as their first name(s), last name(s), email address and mobile phone number, used to create the Electronic Signature.
