Terms and conditions

27 December 2017

I. Conditions of use

Welcome to the international association of lawyers for creative industries (“ialci“) website (the “Website“). ialci operates as an “association loi du 1er juillet 1901” worldwide. By accessing or using the Website, you indicate that you have read and understand this Terms of Use Agreement (the “Agreement“) and agree to be bound by it. You must accept the terms of the Agreement in order to use the Website. If you do not understand or have questions about the Agreement, immediately stop all use of the Website and contact . This Agreement may periodically change without notice, so you should check the Agreement before every attempt to use the Website. When the Agreement is changed, the date of the latest revision will appear at the top of this page.

A. No legal services or solicitor client relationship

Although the Website may provide information concerning potential legal issues, it is not a substitute for legal advice from qualified counsel. You should not and are not authorized to rely on the Web site as a source of legal advice. Your use of the Website does not create any solicitor-client relationship between you and ialci.

The Website contains electronic contact information for many ialci solicitors. The mere act of contacting a ialci solicitor electronically, however, does not create a solicitor-client relationship. The Website is not an invitation to form a solicitor-client relationship.

We are not obliged to keep confidential information you may send us. Under no circumstances, therefore, should you send confidential information to ialci unless you have been authorised to do so by a ialci solicitor.

B. Financial terms and conditions

From time to time, ialci organises some public events (the “Event“).

Members of the public may attend the Event, if they decide to do so.

The delegate fee includes copies of the Event’s presentations via PDF and refreshments at the Event.

Cancellation policy of the Event is as follows:

(1) consumers only can cancel 14 calendar days from the date of conclusion of the contract, in a distance or off-premises contract, without giving any reason. If a consumer cancels the contract within the 14 calendar days’ period, ialci will reimburse the consumer all payments received from him/her. We will make the reimbursement without undue delay, and no later than 14 days after the day on which ialci was informed about the consumer’s decision to cancel the contract. ialci will make the reimbursement using the same means of payment as the consumer used for the transaction, unless the consumer has expressly agreed otherwise;

(2) subject to paragraph (1) above, cancellations 14 or more calendar days before the event: 80 euros cancellation fee per delegate;

(3) subject to paragraph (1) above, cancellations less than 14 calendar days before the event: no refunds.

Cancellations must be notified in writing to ialci. Consumers who cancel 14 calendar days from the date of conclusion of the contract may use the model cancellation form, but it is not obligatory.

No charge will be made for replacement delegates.

Transfer of any confirmed booking between events is not possible.

The organisers of the Event reserve the right to alter the programme and change the speakers without prior notice.

ialci is unable to grant extended credit and therefore must request that full payment be made upon receipt of the invoice.

Should payment not be received within 30 days from the date of invoice, ialci will apply an administration charge of 50 euros, likewise for payments made to our account in error.

C. Recording

ialci records all proceedings at the Event.

Delegates consent to their questions and comments from the floor to be included in all briefing documents based on the Event.

Any delegates wishing to take photographs or make audio or video recordings of any part of the Event must first obtain permission from ialci with as much forward notice as possible, principally as a courtesy to speakers and other participants whose agreement will be sought.

Delegates agree not to publish any portion of the proceedings they may have recorded without permission.

If permission is granted this is on the strict understanding that only brief extracts will be used, that they will not be used in a misleading context and that the speaker and any organisation they represent, and ialci, are acknowledged.

D. Conditions of use for uncorrected transcripts

These transcripts of the Event are intended to provide timely reference for interested parties who are unable to attend the Event they refer to.

As such they do not represent a formal record of contributions made by individual speakers, and – despite best endeavours by ialci and its suppliers – may contain transcription and other errors which could alter the intended meaning of any portion of the reported content.

Anyone who intends to publicly use or refer to any text should make clear that speakers have not had the opportunity for any corrections. If in doubt please contact ialci first.

E. User conduct

You agree that you will not use the Website for any illegal purpose. In addition, you agree that:

1. you will not harvest, collect, or otherwise use contact information made available on the Website for the purpose of sending unsolicited improper communications, including without limitation, unsolicited bulk email (collectively, “spam”) and that you will not use any ialci communications facility to deliver or attempt to deliver spam;

2. you will not attempt to gain unauthorized access to the Website or the servers and network associated with the Website;

3. you will not circumvent or attempt to circumvent any security or access control technology implemented on the Website, or the servers and network associated with the Website, and

H. No warranties and limitation of liability

J. Service marks – permitted use of ialci service marks

ialci service marks identify ialci products and services and let the public know the source of those products and services. You may make fair use of our service marks in advertising and promotional materials, and in referencing our products and services (for example, in a magazine article) without our permission, provided you follow standard trademark usage practices and provide proper attribution. Other uses require our written permission. If you are in doubt as to whether you need our permission for a specific type of use, please ask us.

You may not use ialci logos or “design” service marks (as opposed to our service marks consisting solely of words) under any circumstances without our prior written authorisation.

In addition, you may not use ialci service marks, whether design or word marks, in the following ways:

1. in a non-ialci service name or publication title;

2. in, as, or as part of, your own service or trademarks;

3. to identify products or services that are not ialci’s;

4. in a manner likely to cause confusion;

5. in a manner that implies inaccurately that we sponsor or endorse, or are otherwise connected with, your own activities, products and services, and

6. as hidden or embedded text in web pages in an effort to cause a search of ialci marks to result in a hit on a page not maintained by ialci in a manner disparaging of ialci.

K. Jurisdiction; choice of law

This Agreement and your use of the Website shall be governed by the laws of France, without regard to its conflict of laws provisions.

L. Severability

If any provision of this Agreement is found to be void or unenforceable, such provision shall be severed and all other provisions shall remain in force.
