Article 2. Purpose
The purpose of these Terms and Conditions is to establish conditions for access and use of the Site(s) for Visitors, along with the conditions for subscription and use for Subscribers. These Terms and Conditions are supplemented by the specific conditions and the Legal Notice which states in particular the identity of the Editor.
Article 3. Service description – Term and termination
The Site gathers together information of many kinds relating to printing equipment and related Software Solutions. This information is collated, indexed and continually enriched in the DMO database. The Site provides tools allowing the Subscriber to search within DMO and use the value-added data.
The Site Editor does not guarantee the preservation of these Services over time; they are subject to change according to improvements made to the Site. Wherever possible, the Visitor and Subscriber will be informed of these developments.
The Site Editor reserves the right to terminate the FREE service at any time and without notice.
Article 4. Conditions of access – Cost of services
By accessing the Site, the Visitor acknowledges having read, understood and accepted these Terms and Conditions.
By registering, the Subscriber reiterates his agreement to adhere to these Terms and Conditions.
The Editor provides alternative means of access to the data for such professionals and if in any doubt a potential Subscriber or Visitor should address themselves to the Editor by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org without agreeing to the present Terms and Conditions.
Subscription runs to its term without the possibility of early termination. The non-use of one or several Services during the contract period does not entitle the Subscriber to a refund.
Article 5. Subscriber account – User Names and Passwords
As part of the subscription to the Service, the Editor assigns to the Subscriber a username and a personal password. At the end of each session, the Subscriber must ensure that he leaves his account properly, by clicking one of the Disconnection buttons.
The Subscriber is responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of the password and the username and is responsible for any act involving the use of his / her login and password. If the Subscriber loses his password or realizes it has been stolen, or when this password is used by an unauthorized party, the Subscriber must immediately contact the Editor.
If the Subscriber permits, intentionally or otherwise, a third party to connect using his logon credentials, his or her account will be suspended immediately, and the Subscriber will be due for the amount of the additional subscription for the period of that unauthorized use, along with any other compensation which may be due. The account will remain suspended and will not function until the Editor is satisfied that the situation has been resolved.
