This must be validated by the CUSTOMER by any written means (letter, fax, e-mail...), more commonly called "good to print".

In general, the CLIENT will do everything possible to facilitate the organisation and the realisation of the services by POINTE NOIRE.

 

ARTICLE 6 - MODIFICATION OF THE ORDER

Any request for modification of the order, or addition of services by the CUSTOMER will have to be the subject of an estimate/budget from POINTE NOIRE.

Acceptance of the quotation by the CLIENT shall constitute a modification of the initial quotation/budget.

All deletions or modifications of the services which have the effect of reducing the services provided for in the order, or which constitute a cancellation with regard to the suppliers of POINTE NOIRE, will require the prior and express agreement of POINTE NOIRE. If POINTE NOIRE does not agree, these deletions or modifications will be automatically considered as a partial cancellation of the order as provided for in article 7 below.

In the event of local constraints, POINTE NOIRE reserves the right to cancel or modify certain services and to replace them with equivalent services as far as possible.

 

ARTICLE 7 - CANCELLATION OF THE ORDER

ARTICLE 8 - TERMINATION - FORCE MAJEURE

In the event of a breach by one of the parties of its obligations, not remedied within thirty (30) days from the date of the first presentation of a registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt sent by the complaining party notifying the breaches in question, the order shall be terminated by operation of law, with the exception of the provisions of Articles 16 ("NON DISCONTINUATION") and 17 ("CONFIDENTIALITY"), which shall survive for a period of two (2) years from the end of the services, and Articles 13 ("INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY") and 20 ("APPLICABLE LAW - JURISDICTION"), which shall survive without limitation of time, without prejudice to any damages that may be claimed by the defaulting party.

In case of non-payment by the CUSTOMER of a due date, not repaired within a period of fifteen (15) days from the date of the first presentation of a registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt sent by POINTE NOIRE, the order will be cancelled by right and the CUSTOMER will be held to the immediate payment of the entire price of the order, without prejudice to any damages that POINTE NOIRE would consider to be entitled to claim.

If this impossibility of execution continues for more than one (1) month, or if it is definitive, the affected order may be terminated by either party, by registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt, without this termination giving rise to the payment of damages by either party.

Any cancellation of an order due to force majeure will automatically lead to the payment of the sums due by the CUSTOMER on the basis of the work already done by POINTE NOIRE.

ARTICLE 9 - LIABILITY - INSURANCE

Each of the parties shall insure its civil liability according to the rules of common law.

POINTE NOIRE cannot be held responsible in case of delay, bad execution or non-execution of its service, the cause of which would be attributable to (i) the CUSTOMER, in particular when the CUSTOMER has called upon one or several other service provider(s) who must also intervene on his behalf within the framework of the mission entrusted to POINTE NOIRE, and/or (ii) the participants, and/or (iii) the fact of a foreign third party, and/or (iv) in the event of force majeure as defined in article 8 of the present contract.

The CUSTOMER recognises and assumes full and complete responsibility for the choices made in terms of textual and iconographic content, appearing in the work delivered by POINTE NOIRE.

on all audiovisual services and all online services on all networks.

Consequently, the CUSTOMER guarantees POINTE NOIRE against any recourse and/or action that could be taken by natural or legal persons who consider that they have any rights whatsoever to assert on the use of their image and who would be likely to oppose their distribution.

The CUSTOMER acknowledges that he/she has been informed and accepts that the decision to exploit or not his/her image will be left to the discretion of POINTE NOIRE. POINTE NOIRE does not commit itself to any exploitation of all or part of the recorded images.

This authorisation is granted for a period of ten (10) years from the signing of this agreement, renewable by mutual agreement of the parties, formalised in writing, and will remain valid in the event of a change in its current civil status.

POINTE NOIRE offers to register domain names with the extensions .com, .net and .org, as well as .fr and

other TLDs available in France in order to allow all individuals or legal entities to ensure the ownership of the name(s) of their choice.

POINTE NOIRE will put on line under this domain name a standard page, not susceptible to personalization, showing a mention including the domain name.

Because of the time that may elapse between the search and the registration of the envisaged domain name, the indication of the availability of this name in no way constitutes a guarantee that it can actually be registered. The availability of a domain name and its registration do not constitute a guarantee against any claim by a third party on all or part of this name.

Each registration request implies prior and unreserved acceptance of the administrative and technical rules for naming as well as the rules for resolving conflicts that may arise between the owner of the domain name and any third party claiming rights to all or part of this name.

It is up to the CUSTOMER to provide POINTE NOIRE with any supporting documents required for the registration in question, such as a Kbis or the identifier in the INSEE directory for a .fr level name or the registration certificate at the INPI for a .tm.fr level name.

The registration of the Customer's domain name will only be taken into consideration after POINTE NOIRE has received the order form duly filled in and signed by the Customer together with the payment and the necessary documents.

The registration of the domain name is only effective once the databases of the organisations concerned (Afnic, Internic) have been updated and the DNS has been propagated.

material supports on which the said work appears. The CUSTOMER will then be the owner of the right to exploit the creation and cannot, as such, communicate to a third party, even free of charge, apart from the object of the services entrusted to POINTE NOIRE, all or part of the work created, nor publish or reproduce it without the prior written agreement of POINTE NOIRE.

Any use of the creation by the CUSTOMER, not initially foreseen, must be the object of an express prior authorisation by POINTE NOIRE and of a remuneration to be agreed between POINTE NOIRE and the CUSTOMER.

POINTE NOIRE will ensure that the execution of its mission does not infringe any intellectual property right, any trademark or any other right, title or interest in intellectual property, belonging to any third party, natural or legal. POINTE NOIRE will make its personal business of obtaining the rights of use of all intellectual property rights necessary for the execution of the services ordered by the CUSTOMER and will regularise if necessary, the transfers of rights imposed by the code of the intellectual property and various necessary authorisations.

POINTE NOIRE then indicates to the Client the limits of use of the possible rights of third parties on the retained creations. In the event of legal proceedings or claims by a third party, the CUSTOMER undertakes to carry out the modifications in order to remove the litigious elements and to replace them by entirely original elements or those for which POINTE NOIRE holds the rights. On his side, the CUSTOMER must be the owner of all the exploitation rights of the works or intellectual property rights brought to POINTE NOIRE for their reproduction.

ARTICLE 15 - PERSONAL DATA

POINTE NOIRE can collect and process personal data (such as: names, first names, postal addresses, telephone numbers, e-mail addresses etc...) of its contacts, of its prospects and of the persons representing or working for them (ex: employees, consultants etc.) in order to be able to ensure the management of their orders and the follow-up of its contractual relationship with them or the company they represent and/or to distribute information of a professional nature to them and to invite them to services organised by POINTE NOIRE.
