1. ACCEPTANCE OF GENERAL CONDITIONSOF USE
Any connection to the site or use of its contents must be carried out in the framework of these general conditions of use (hereafter designated as ‘General Conditions of Use’.)
The simple act of accessing the site implies application of the rules and conditions defined hereafter as well as acceptance of the General Conditions of Use. Any Website User not willing to accept the General Conditions of Use must refrain from using the site.
The applicable General Conditions of Use are those in force when the Website User connects to and uses the site.
ARMONIA hereby notifies Website Users that the General Conditions of Use may be modified at any time. Such modifications are considered to have been communicated to Website Users by simply putting them online, and all Website Users are considered to have unreservedly accepted these modifications when they access the site after said changes have been put online. ARMONIA undertakes to ensure that these General Conditions of Use are present on the site at all times, except when all or part of the site is temporarily unavailable.
2. PARTNER SERVICES
ARMONIA also gives Website Users the opportunity to access services provided by its partners (hereafter known as ‘Partner Services’) via hypertext links in various sections of the site. The site may also contain various types of advertisements (banners, buttons, skyscrapers, etc. ) on which the Website User can click to access the sites and services of third parties.
Partner Services, advertisements and the services to which they provide access are proposed by partners, advertisers and third-party services entirely at their own initiative and under their sole responsibility.
In general, ARMONIA shall not be held responsible for the content of Partner Services accessed via links present on it site, nor for any of the offers, information consulted or transactions performed by these Partner Services. The providers of Partner Services, and they alone, are considered as having entered into a contractual relationship with the Website User.
Consequently, only the specific use and/or sales conditions of the Partner Service(s) shall be applied to the Website User accessing said Partner Service(s) via the site.ARMONIA shall not provide any service or guarantee with respect to the Partner Services used by Website Users and/or the advertising elements mentioned above. As a result, ARMONIA declines all responsibility for cases in which Partner Services, their content or advertisements provided by third parties do not conform to legal and regulatory provisions in effect.
Nonetheless, ARMONIA will strive to forward Website Users’ questions and complaints about these services to the Partner Services and/or third parties involved as quickly as possible. When contacting ARMONIA with a question or complaint, Website Users should take care to provide exact information to enable ARMONIA to identify the purpose of their email and the Partner Service involved.
3. SITE AVAILABILITY
ARMONIA shall, to the best of its ability, keep the site and the services it provides online and available at all times. The company is not, however, under any obligation to do so. ARMONIA thus has the right to interrupt access, in particular for purposes of maintenance or updating, or for any other reasons—in particular technical or editorial—and this without any notice or prior information provided to Website Users. ARMONIA shall not, in such cases, be held responsible for the consequences of such interruptions for Website Users or any other parties.
In addition, ARMONIA shall not be held responsible if Website Users are unable to access all or part of the site as a result of a technical defect or any other type of problem, in particular but not limited to the following:
- network congestion,

When creating his or her User Account, each Website User must choose a user name and password. At this time, Website Users are also asked to complete a registration form to provide ARMONIA with certain personal details such as first and last name, email address, telephone number, postal address, birthdate, region, etc. This information will be processed according to conditions defined in point 5 below. Website Users are given information on the required or optional nature of the information requested on the form.

Should any Website User not fulfil one of the obligations listed above, ARMONIA shall have the right to require the Website User to change his or her email address and/or user name. If the Website User refuses to make the change, ARMONIA shall have the right to delete the User Account.
Likewise, if a Website User creates more than one user account or provides false identification data, ARMONIA shall have the right to cancel or block all of the Website User’s User Accounts.
ARMONIA shall not be held responsible if a Website User’s registration data is not received or is partially illegible as a result of technical incompatibility or other defect, in particular those caused by the Website User’s IT installations (Internet server, hardware, software, etc.).
Use of user names and passwords
