IGBO INTRODUCTIONS do not warrant that the Services will function properly if the Member's Internet service provider fails to provide an adequate level of service. IGBO INTRODUCTIONS, if applicable, the use of smartphone applications, whose use Members have agreed on directly with the provider, requires Members to have a smartphone and a satisfactory connection. Under these circumstances, IGBO INTRODUCTIONS are not responsible for any lack of functionality, lack of access or poor conditions of use of the Sites that would be attributable to equipment-related inadequacies, to the internal failures of Members' access provider, the overloading of the Internet network and for any other reasons external to IGBO INTRODUCTIONS, which the Member agrees are events of FORCE MAJEURE. The operation of the Services may be interrupted from time to time due to scheduled maintenance, updates or technical improvements, or to update the content and/or the way it is presented. To the extent possible, IGBO INTRODUCTIONS will endeavour to notify their members prior to any scheduled maintenance operations or updates.

14.2 INFORMATION AND CONTENT PROVIDED BY MEMBERS

Information provided by a Member to any company of IGBO INTRODUCTIONS, including to IGBO INTRODUCTIONS, must be accurate and true. A member may disclose information voluntarily and the consequences that disclosing this information may have on the member's life or the lives of other members are the exclusive responsibility of the member in question. The member, on its own account, discloses and disseminates information, data, texts, content and images that concern it through the Services. Accordingly, the member waives the right to make any claim against IGBO INTRODUCTIONS, in particular based on the possible infringement of its image rights, honour, reputation or privacy of its private life, that may result from the distribution or dissemination of information that concern it under the terms and conditions established in the Terms of Use Terms of Use.

14.3 TERMS OF USE

IGBO INTRODUCTIONS cannot be held liable for the accuracy or inaccuracy of the information and content provided by other Members, visitors to the Sites and/or the Member itself (and the consequences of reliance on any such information). IGBO INTRODUCTIONS cannot be held liable for any content disseminated by a Member that may potentially constitute a breach of the rights of one or more of the other Members or third parties, where a member of IGBO INTRODUCTIONS can demonstrate that it:

  • was not informed by a Member or third party, or about the content or the dissemination
  • did not have actual or prior knowledge of the same
  • did not commit a breach in the performance of any of its contractual obligations which led to such content being disseminated.

IGBO INTRODUCTIONS may only be held liable by a Member if and to the extent there is proof of a breach having been committed by IGBO INTRODUCTIONS or one of its service providers involved in the performance of the IGBO INTRODUCTIONS's contractual obligations, and this breach has caused the Member direct damage. Where appropriate, it will be IGBO INTRODUCTIONS's responsibility to demonstrate that it has not committed any breaches in the performance of its contractual obligations. IGBO INTRODUCTIONS may not be held liable for any direct or indirect damage incurred by the Member in the event the Member causes the damage or the damage results from an event of FORCE MAJEURE. The quality of the Services demanded by both the IGBO INTRODUCTIONS and its Members requires that Members conduct themselves ethically and behave with respect for the rights of third parties, and the respect for the laws and regulations in force. To meet this demand for quality, individual responsibility and ethics, IGBO INTRODUCTIONS requests any Member to report any data (photography, text, video), behaviours or comments made by another Member that appear to be in violation of the laws and regulations in force, concerning the purpose of the Services, third-party rights or public morals. As a result, Members acknowledge and accept that the data they provide, as well as their behaviour or comments made through the Services, may be reported by other Members and are subject to acts of moderation and/or oversight by the IGBO INTRODUCTIONS based on objective assessment criteria. In the event that IGBO INTRODUCTIONS's investigation of a report reveals that a Member violated the laws and regulations in force or its contractual obligations, the provisions of the Terms of condition, in particular, "Termination", may be applied. Depending on the Members' behaviour or the comments made by Members, the monitoring team may decide to block any new registration by a Member that has been the subject of a complaint. In the event IGBO INTRODUCTIONS is held liable based on a member's breach of its legal obligations or those under the Terms of Use, said member agrees to indemnify and hold the IGBO INTRODUCTIONS harmless against any orders issued against it resulting from the member's breach of his/her obligations.

14.4 LINKS AND EXTERNAL RESOURCES

IGBO INTRODUCTIONS is only liable for the hyperlinks it creates and does not exercise any control over the External Websites and external resources (third-party websites or mobile applications, social networks, etc.) to which the hyperlinks accessible on the Sites and the Services redirect and which any entity of the IGBO INTRODUCTIONS did not create. It cannot be held liable for the provision of hyperlinks to External Websites, and cannot be held liable for their content, advertisements, products, service features or any other information available on or based on the use of such External Websites. Any issues relating to a link must be submitted to the administrator or webmaster of the site in question. A Member's access and/or use of these sources and External Websites may be governed by third party terms and conditions over which the IGBO INTRODUCTIONS has no control. Finally, if during a search conducted on the Sites, the result of this search leads a Member to results that include External Websites, pages or forums whose title and/or content constitutes a violation of applicable law, that Member is requested to terminate its search of, or navigate to, the External Website in question. Members who continue to search, or navigate to, such External Websites proceed at their own risk, and IGBO INTRODUCTIONS will not be liable for the content of external websites.

15 TERMINATION

Members may terminate their subscription to the Services by requesting the closing of their IGBO INTRODUCTIONS account at any time without reason by making a request through the "My Account" section of the Sites dedicated to this purpose or by any means which may be indicated under this heading. This request will be deemed made on the working day following the receipt by IGBO INTRODUCTIONS of the request to close the account concerned. This request will not entail reimbursement to the Member of the period remaining until the Member Subscription expires.

Agreement with the member These Terms of Use constitute a contract that governs relations between the member and IGBO INTRODUCTIONS. These Terms of Use supersede all previous provisions not expressly referred to or appended and constitute the entire rights and obligations of IGBO INTRODUCTIONS and the companies of the IGBO INTRODUCTIONS and the member with respect to their subject matter. If one or more provisions in the Terms of Use are held to be unenforceable under applicable laws or regulations or as a result of a final decision of a competent court, the other provisions will remain in full force and effect, to the extent permitted by that decision. Furthermore, the failure of a Party to act with respect to a breach by the other Party of any of the provisions of these Terms of Use does not in any way imply a waiver of the right to act at a later date with respect to that breach.

In this case, the member may implement the procedure referred to in "Termination" at any time following the date of entry into force of the new Terms of Use.
