The Website as a whole and each of its components, in particular the texts, drawings, illustrations, logos, images (animated or not), databases and iconography of the Website, are the exclusive property of the Publisher's company and/or, where applicable, Geopost, who alone are entitled to assert the related intellectual property rights.
In this respect, the User undertakes, without limitation, not to download, extract, store, use, reproduce, sell, communicate, represent, broadcast, adapt and/or borrow content from the Services protected by intellectual property rights, directly or indirectly, on any medium whatsoever, by any means and in any form whatsoever, without the express authorisation of the Publisher and/or its partners.

Any reproduction or representation by any means whatsoever, in whole or in part, of the Website or any of its components, without the express prior authorisation of the Publisher, is strictly prohibited and constitutes an infringement of copyright.
Violation of these provisions shall render any offender liable to the criminal and civil penalties provided for by the legislation in force.
7.1 Users’ liability
All hardware and software required to access and use the Site or Services remain the sole responsibility of the User, who is therefore solely responsible for the proper functioning of his/her Device and Internet access. It is therefore the User's responsibility to take all appropriate measures to protect his/her own data, computer systems and/or software from contamination by any viruses. The User is solely responsible for his/her use of the Site and/or Services.
The User acknowledges that the conversation conducted via the ChatBot cannot be assimilated to a conversation with a DPD France agent. The User is solely responsible for the information provided via the ChatBot.
Users are reminded that no confidential information may be communicated, in particular via this means and/or online forms on the Site, such as passwords, bank card numbers or other strictly personal information.
In addition, the User undertakes to respect the rules of law in force and not to use abusive, insulting, disparaging, degrading, defamatory, libellous, violent, discriminatory, racist or xenophobic language. The Publisher reserves the right to exercise a priori and a posteriori moderation over Users' publications and reserves the right to refuse to put them online, without the need for justification, and to take any legal action if necessary.
The User guarantees the Publisher against any recourse, claim or action that may be brought against it in any respect whatsoever in connection with the publication of its comment(s).
The User is solely responsible for the identity that he identifies, whether through his e-mail address, the content of the messages, comments and/or information that he communicates and/or his IP address. All requests and/or actions carried out by the User on the Site are deemed to have been carried out by the User.
7.2 Publisher’s liability
The Publisher makes his best effort to ensure that the information accessible via the Site is accurate and up-to-date. However, the Publisher in no way guarantees that this information is accurate, complete and up-to-date. The Publisher gives no guarantee, express or implied, concerning the relevance, accuracy and topicality of the information and data appearing on all or part of the Site.
The Publisher uses all reasonable means at its disposal to ensure quality access to the Site and/or the Services. The Site is accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, except in the event of force majeure or the occurrence of an event beyond the control of the Publisher and subject to any breakdowns and maintenance operations necessary for the proper functioning of the Site.
Subject to applicable legal or regulatory provisions, under no circumstances may the Publisher be held liable for any direct or indirect damage whatsoever, whatever the cause, origin, nature or consequence, arising from consultation or use of the Site. Furthermore, the Publisher may not be held liable for any malfunction of the network and/or servers or any other event beyond its control, which may prevent or impair access to the Site and/or Services. The Publisher reserves the right to interrupt, temporarily suspend or modify without notice access to all or part of the Site and/or the Services, in order to carry out maintenance, or for any other reason, without the interruption giving rise to any obligation or compensation.
The Publisher in no way guarantees the accuracy or completeness of the information offered by the referenced Sites.
8. Hypertext links
The Site may contain hypertext links to other websites over which the Publisher has no control. Despite the checks carried out before any hypertext link is set up on its Site, the Publisher declines all responsibility for the content of these Sites and any updates that may be made to them.
The Publisher authorises the creation of hypertext links to any page or document on its Site, provided that these links are not created for commercial or advertising purposes. Such links may only be set up on condition that the authors of the link have informed the Site's webmaster in advance. Naturally, this authorisation does not apply to Sites disseminating information of an illicit, violent, controversial, pornographic or xenophobic nature, or which may offend the sensibilities of a large number of people. Finally, the Publisher reserves the right to remove a hypertext link to its Site at any time if it considers that the link does not comply with its editorial policy.
