Any other use of the Website by the User, especially for business, is prohibited without express written authorisation from Autolux.
The User must in particular refrain from reproducing and/or representing, downloading, selling, distributing, issuing, translating, adapting, exploiting, broadcasting and communicating in full or in part in any form whatsoever, for commercial purposes or not, any original intellectual work or data contained on the Website, this list not being exhaustive, for any use other than private use.
Any hypertext link to the Website, regardless of the type of link, is authorised, but must be communicated to and authorised by Autolux beforehand in electronic format. To obtain such authorisation, contact the Website’s webmaster at the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Website may include hypertext links to other websites.
On the day of their creation, Autolux ensured, to the extent possible, that these websites and other Internet sources did not contain content contravening Luxembourg laws.
Autolux shall only be held liable for making access to these websites and external sources available where the page or Internet source towards which a hypertext link has been created contained content contravening Luxembourg laws at the time of its creation.
Therefore, Autolux cannot bear any liability as regards the content, advertising, products and services available on or from such websites or external sources offered after the creation of the hypertext link on its Website. By express agreement, it is up to the User to prove that said hypertext link was created after the dissemination of such content, advertising, products and services.
The User consequently acknowledges that Autolux cannot be held responsible for any proven or alleged damages or losses caused by or arising in connection with the use of or the learning of the content, advertising, products and services available on these websites or external sources.
If during a search performed on the Website, a User is led to access websites, pages or forums of which the title and/or content constitutes an infringement of Luxembourg law, especially given the fact that Autolux cannot control the content of such websites and external sources, the User should stop consulting the website concerned, otherwise he/she shall incur the penalties stipulated by Luxembourg legislation or face legal action.
Finally, if, in spite of our efforts, one of the hypertext links on the Website provides a User with access to a website or an Internet source of which the contents do not or appear not to comply with the requirements of Luxembourg law, said User agrees to contact the editorial director immediately by sending an e-mail to email@example.com in order to send him the address of the website pages at issue.
Autolux then agrees to examine said website and inform the User of the action it proposes to take, within a reasonable time frame. The User agrees not to institute any legal proceedings against Autolux before having received its response. The User also agrees not to institute legal proceedings against Autolux should it refuse to remove said link.
Autolux is only responsible for the content of the pages it publishes.
Under no circumstances can Autolux be held liable for any damage that might occur on the User’s computer system and/or for the loss of data resulting from the use of the Website by the User.
Autolux shall not be held liable for any events other than those relating to the publishing of the Website.
Autolux does not in any way guarantee the availability or the performance of the Website. The User may not hold Autolux liable on the grounds of lost profit, a missed opportunity or a loss in revenue. Autolux may only be held liable for proven fault and for direct and predictable damage, exclusively caused by Autolux’s failure to fulfil its obligations.
Autolux shall not be held liable for the non-functioning, impossibility of access or malfunctions of the Website due to unsuitable hardware, malfunctions of the service provider’s access services for Users and malfunctions of the Internet network. This will also be the case for any other reasons falling outside the scope of Autolux.
Furthermore, the User acknowledges that the characteristics and restrictions of the Internet network mean that it is not possible to guarantee the availability and proper functioning of the Website. Consequently, Autolux does not guarantee that the Website will function without interruptions or errors. In this respect, it is specified that:
– the Website is accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week except in cases of force majeure or events which are outside Autolux’s control
– Autolux may be required to temporarily interrupt access to all or part of the Website for all or some Users for maintenance reasons to ensure that the Website functions properly, without notice and without such interruption entitling the User to any compensation.
The User waives the right to hold Autolux liable for such service interruptions and operational disruptions.
As the Internet is accessible to everyone and, in particular, to ill-intentioned people, Users acknowledge that Autolux cannot guarantee the secrecy of correspondence exchanged by the means available to Users.
The User declares that he/she has been well-informed of the Internet’s intrinsic characteristics and in particular of the fact (i) that data transfer on the Internet does not enjoy a great level of reliability, as this involves heterogeneous networks, with diverse characteristics and capacities, which are sometimes saturated at certain times of the day and which could affect download times and data accessibility, and (ii) that the Internet is an open network and that accordingly the information it conveys is not protected against the risks of diversion, intrusion into his/her system, the hacking of data, files and programmes on his/her system, contamination by computer viruses, and (iii) that it is up to the User to take all appropriate measures to protect the data, files and programmes stored in his/her system against contamination by viruses such as attempts to hack into his/her system.
If one or more provisions in the GTCU are regarded as invalid or declared as such under the application of a law or regulation or following a definitive decision by a court of law with the appropriate jurisdiction, they shall be deemed not to have been written and the other provisions shall remain in force.
In the event of a difficulty in interpretation between any of the headings above the clauses and any of the clauses or between several headings, the headings shall be deemed to be non-existent.
Only the French version of these GTCU shall prevail between the parties and may be produced in court.
The GTCU are subject to Luxembourg law.
In the event of a dispute between the parties arising from the formation, interpretation, performance and/or the termination of the contract, and after attempts have been made to find an amicable solution, jurisdiction is expressly attributed to the Luxembourg courts, notwithstanding multiple respondents or third party appeals, even for urgent proceedings, protective proceedings or summary or ex-parte proceedings.
