In accordance with the provisions of article L.122-6 of the Intellectual Property Code, the use not expressly authorized by PURPLEMET under this Agreement is illegal. CUSTOMER therefore refrains from carrying out or assisting others to carry out and conduct:

PURPLEMET shall exercice commercially reasonable efforts to correct any such Malfunctions at its sole discretion in a reasonable timeframe.

Section 4. TERMS OF ACCESS TO THE PLATFORM

PURPLEMET provides CUSTOMER with the access to the Application in SaaS mode 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, subject to interruptions whether due to planned maintenance if possible, outside of CUSTOMER's usual working hours; or due to a fault external to PURPLEMET.

The Platform is accessible from the internet network. To access it, the User must have the following Technical prerequisites, with the additional conditions specified below for each:

4.1 - An Environment that complies with the Technical prerequisites and telecommunications subscriptions to access the Platform.

  • All costs relating to access to the Application Website, whether hardware, software or internet access costs, are exclusively borne by CUSTOMER.
  • CUSTOMER is solely responsible for the proper functioning of his computer equipment and his access to the internet.
  • CUSTOMER is responsible for his own business and takes full responsibility for acquiring the hardware and software, as well as subscribing to the required telecommunications and Internet access, necessary for the remote use of the Application. CUSTOMER is informed that access to the Application requires an Internet connection.
  • The telecommunications specifications necessary to access and use the Application are described in Appendix 2. The costs for the Internet connection allowing access to the Application are the sole responsibility of CUSTOMER.
  • CUSTOMER is aware that the transmission of data over the Internet is subject to hazards and risks that are totally independent from PURPLEMET, in particular in terms of transfer speed, reliability of connections, security and integrity of the data transmitted. PURPLEMET cannot, therefore, in any case, be held responsible for any difficulty originating from a problem of data transmission over the Internet. CUSTOMER is solely responsible for the Customer Data which he transmits or receives and undertakes to indemnify PURPLEMET for any damage that this Customer Data may cause with regards to the execution of the services.

4.2 - A User Account

Each User shall hold a User Account, a Username and a password allowing their Authentication.

User Accounts for the access to the Application are created, within the limit of the number authorized for each type of User profile, either by CUSTOMER via the Administration Interface if applicable, or, at his request, by PURPLEMET. The identifiers and passwords supplied by CUSTOMER to Users are confidential, unique and personal to each of the Users. CUSTOMER has the possibility of managing himself, under his responsibility, via the Management Interface, the authorizations granted to each of the Users.

CUSTOMER undertakes to ensure the confidentiality and security of the device used to access the Platform so as to allow the use of the Application and access to the PURPLEMET Infrastructure only to authorized Users, to the exclusion of any third party. CUSTOMER undertakes in this respect to ensure that Users do not disclose their Username and password to anyone. In the event of accidental (loss, theft, etc.) or voluntary disclosure, CUSTOMER undertakes to inform PURPLEMET as soon as it becomes aware of it. The Authentication of a User by means of an Identifier and a password carries, irrefutably, accountability to the holder of the Identifier used, of the operations carried out by means of this Identifier.

Section 5. PURPLEMET'S OBLIGATIONS

PURPLEMET undertakes to allow access to the Application by CUSTOMER within the framework of these Terms of Use. PURPLEMET undertakes to implement commercially reasonable human and material resources to perform the Services substantially in accordance with the commitments made within the framework of the Service Levels. The Service Level Agreement describing the details of such Service Levels shall be provided to CUSTOMER upon request.

PURPLEMET is solely responsible for the corrective and regular maintenance of the Software in accordance with the service level commitments made within the framework of the SLA. Notwithstanding the foregoing, PURPLEMET will not be bound by its commitments in the event of force majeure, as defined in article 1218 of the Civil Code. The obligations of the parties will be automatically suspended upon the occurrence of the non-limited list of the following events beyond their reasonable control preventing the normal performance of this contract, such as:

  • a strike or a major pandemic;
  • interruption of energy supply such as electricity whatever the cause;
  • a failure in the telecommunications network;
  • loss of Internet connectivity due to public and private operators on which CUSTOMER and / or PURPLEMET depend;
  • a war or other such conflict;
  • riots or popular movements;
  • terrorist attacks;

PURPLEMET shall inform CUSTOMER upon a reasonable delay of its impossibility to perform its obligations due to a case of force majeure. The suspension of obligations for such reason may in no case be a cause of liability for non-performance of the obligation in question, nor may it lead to the payment of damages for the benefit of CUSTOMER.

However, as soon as the cause of the suspension of its obligations has disappeared, PURPLEMET will make its best efforts to resume as soon as possible the normal performance of its contractual obligations.

PURPLEMET shall not be responsible for any losses, damages or other prejudice to CUSTOMER for any loss of data, business interruption or other direct and indirect damages in case of such termination or denial of access.

In any event, CUSTOMER must at all times collaborate loyally with PURPLEMET by providing all the elements, information and assistance necessary and known to it in order to allow PURPLEMET to conduct an adequate defense. In the event that a prohibition on use is pronounced as a consequence of an action for infringement or results from a transaction signed with the claimant, PURPLEMET will endeavor, at its sole discretion, option and at its expense, either:

  • to obtain the right for CUSTOMER to continue using the Application,
  • to replace the infringing element with an equivalent element which is not the subject of an infringement action,
  • or
  • to modify the Application in such a way to avoid said infringement.

The above provisions set the limits of PURPLEMET's liability for third-party infringement due to the use of the Application.

Section 10. RESPONSIBILITY

Taking into account the hazards that are inherent to Internet technologies, the Parties agree that under the T&Cs, PURPLEMET is subject to a general obligation of means ("obligation de moyens").

Unless clearly stated in these Terms of Use, the provision of the Application by PURPLEMET cannot be assimilated to an advisory service of any kind, nor to an interference by PURPLEMET in the management of CUSTOMER. The use of the Application is left to the entire discretion and responsibility of CUSTOMER in the context of its needs.

CUSTOMER is solely responsible for the use and processing of Data, PURPLEMET's responsibility being limited to hosting, securing and backing up data on behalf of the CUSTOMER. PURPLEMET shall not be held liable for any of the Data used and processed nor for the damaging consequences of any errors or losses in the Data or in the results of the processing.

CUSTOMER agrees that PURPLEMET shall not be held responsible for damages that could result from the non-execution of these Terms of Use, and which are deemed to be indirect damages, such as: financial, commercial damage, loss of customers, any commercial disorder, loss of profit, loss of brand image, loss of data, files or software suffered by CUSTOMER, increase in charges and cost of services necessary to implement or correct the Data or the results obtained, which could result from the non-performance of these Terms of Use, which are deemed to be of indirect damage.

Any action directed against CUSTOMER by a third party is assimilated to an action for indirect damage and as such, does not give rise to any right to compensation.

CUSTOMER agrees to take all necessary precautions to mitigate the damage that may result from the execution of these Terms of Use and to use up-to-date anti-virus software.

Notwithstanding anything contrary herein, under no circumstances shall PURPLEMET's aggregate liability from all causes of action of any kind arising out or related to these T&Cs and the associated Application use and services, exceeds the fees actually paid by CUSTOMER for the performance of these Terms of Use during the calendar quarter prior to the claim.

This limitation of liability results from the distribution of risks, as freely negotiated between the Parties, and from the prices agreed between them which reflect them.

This provision shall survive the termination of these Terms of Use for any reason whatsoever.

Section 11. PROTECTION OF PERSONAL DATA

The Parties guarantee that they comply with the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation No. 2016-679 (GDPR) as well as French laws and regulations relating to data protection and in particular the law "Informatique et Liberté" (law No. 78-17 of January 6, 1978 as amended), the Ordinance No. 2018-1125 of December 12, 2018, the Decrees No. 2018-687 of August 1, 2018 and No. 2019-536 of May 29, 2019) as applicable.

More specifically, CUSTOMER'S obligations are as follows:

CUSTOMER agrees that any Personal Data processed by using the Application and which is, as such, made available in SaaS mode to CUSTOMER, is processed for his own account, under his sole responsibility, for the purposes he has defined.

CUSTOMER is solely responsible for the choice of processing and the means of processing personal data.

CUSTOMER guarantees to PURPLEMET that any personal data thus collected, processed, used, etc. are for a specific, explicit and legitimate purpose, and that they will not be processed for other purposes incompatible with this initial purpose. CUSTOMER further guarantees than personal data collected and processed as part of the Application, if applicable, are adequate, relevant, not excessive and limited to what is necessary with regard to the objectives pursued.

The parties agree that the obligations to inform and collect consent from data subjects regarding the use of the Application shall be done directly via the PURPLEMET Application, for as long as the personal data processing is directly implemented through the Application.

In this regard, when Personal Data is collected directly via the Application, the data subjects are informed of their rights at the time of their collection, for example by including the mandatory information in a form and checking boxes to express their consent (opt-in consents), in accordance with the applicable legal and regulatory provisions, and with consideration to the purpose of the intended processing.

When Personal Data is integrated directly from CUSTOMER's devices, he guarantees that it has given comprehensive et full notice to the data subjects and that it has obtained their consent when necessary, in accordance with applicable legal and regulatory provisions, and with consideration to the purpose of the processing intended via the Application.

In any event, CUSTOMER guarantees in particular that will not be processed, in the context of the use of the Application, Personal Data of data subjects who have not been informed of their rights or have not given their consent to such processing, in accordance with the applicable provisions when such consent is required (e.g. direct marketing, sensitive data, pooling databases and segmentation, conservation of bank details for future payments, ...) or would have exercised their right to object to all or part of said processing implemented through the use of the Application.

CUSTOMER agrees that compliance with its obligations as referred to in this section is a substantial element of the use of the Application, in particular for the lawfulness of personal data processing operated through the Application.

CUSTOMER warrants PURPLEMET against any claim made by data subjects whose data is processed, via the Application by PURPLEMET.

As the data controller, CUSTOMER undertakes to make available to PURPLEMET all the information and elements necessary for compliance by PURPLEMET with its own obligations with regard to the protection and safeguard of Personal Data and to provide PURPLEMET with full details on the processing he wishes to implement through the Application.

Section 12. LEGAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE AUTHORIZATIONS

Each of the Parties undertakes to attend to the observation of his confidentiality obligation by his employees, agents, service providers or partners whatsoever, and shall guarantee the other Party in this respect.
