Any person who accesses the Site undertakes to comply with these general conditions of use, which may be supplemented by certain special conditions for certain services. Publicis Conseil reserves the right to modify and update access to the Site and the General Conditions at any time. These modifications and updates are binding on the user, who must therefore regularly refer to this section to check the General Conditions in force. Publicis Conseil reserves the right to modify or delete all or part of the Site without any prior notice and without having to inform Internet users of the same in advance. Publicis Conseil shall not be held liable for this in any way.
1 - INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS:
Reproductions, on a paper- or computer-based medium, of the Site and of the works and models reproduced therein are permitted, provided that they are strictly reserved for personal use excluding any use for advertising and/or commercial purposes, and/or that they comply with the provisions of Article L122-5 of the French Intellectual Property Code. With the exception of the above-mentioned provisions, any reproduction, representation, use, or modification, by any process whatsoever and on any medium whatsoever, of all or part of the Site, of all or part of the various works and models that make it up, without having obtained the prior authorisation of Publicis Conseil, is strictly prohibited and constitutes an infringement of copyright. The above-mentioned obligations do not apply to journalists and publishers: Publicis Conseil provides them with images and press kits that they can refer to, reproduce, and represent freely in order to illustrate their articles and press releases. This material can be found under the “Press” tab.
1.2 Trademark rights
Names, designations, and signs of any kind (such as logos or figurative marks), and the names of the products and services that are mentioned or reproduced in advertising documents of any kind published on this Site by Publicis Conseil are the property of the advertisers, who are clients of Publicis Conseil. Hence, they cannot be used even partially by Internet users, nor may they be reproduced, represented, or imitated, except with the prior written authorisation of the owners of the trademarks mentioned. Any infringement of this obligation constitutes an infringement of trademark rights, which shall expose the culprit to legal proceedings. In addition, the name “Publicis Conseil”, as well as the names, logos, and commercial names of the Publicis Conseil companies, are registered trademarks protected in each of the countries where these companies have been established. No reproduction, not even a partial one, representation, or imitation may therefore be made without the written authorisation of Publicis Conseil and the Publicis Conseil companies that own the aforementioned trademarks. Any infringement of this obligation constitutes an infringement of trademark rights, which shall expose the culprit to legal proceedings.
1.3 Intellectual property rights relating to the creations of users of the Site who are employees of Publicis Conseil
Publicis Conseil may publish, on this Site, creative briefs inviting users of this Site who are employees of Publicis Conseil to submit original and unpublished creations (hereinafter referred to as “Creations”). By registering on this Site and submitting Creations either on the basis of briefs published by Publicis Conseil, or on their own initiative in the absence of any brief, the employees of Publicis Conseil (hereinafter referred to as “Authors”) transfer to Publicis Conseil, as and when they send their Creations to the Site, all the intellectual property rights associated with the Creations of which they are the Authors. The rights of reproduction, representation, and adaptation relating to the Creations are thus transferred for the entire legal duration of copyright protection applicable in France and abroad by application of the French Intellectual Property Code and international conventions on copyright. This transfer will allow Publicis Conseil or the Publicis Conseil companies to reproduce, represent, and adapt the Creations (images and/or texts) in all formats, on all media, and by all means and technical processes known or unknown to date throughout the world, for any of the clients of Publicis Conseil and in any communication campaign broadcast by any means whatsoever. In the event that intellectual property rights (copyright and rights related to copyright, rights relating to trademarks, designs, and models in particular) are associated with the projects and are not the property of the Authors of the Creations, the Authors undertake to specify the source of their loans or adaptations in a note attached to their submissions. The Authors must thus mention the name of the author(s) of the original work incorporated into their Creation (for example, the name of the composer of a musical work) and, if possible, the year of first publication of that work. In this way, if Publicis Conseil wishes to produce the Creations for the benefit of one of its advertising clients as indicated in the previous paragraph, Publicis Conseil will negotiate, with the relevant right-holders, the authorisations and transfers of rights necessary for the unobstructed exploitation of the Creations. The above-mentioned transfer shall be granted exclusively for the benefit of Publicis Conseil and the companies of its Group, and will remain valid even in the event of the termination, for whatever reason, of the employment contract or the contract for the hire of work linking the Authors to Publicis Conseil. Consequently, participants are prohibited from granting rights of the same nature to third parties.
2 - IMAGE RIGHTS - PERSONALITY RIGHTS
The models, performers, and more generally, all persons represented in the advertising photos and films published on this Site have consented to the use of their image for campaigns produced for advertisers who are clients of Publicis Conseil. Similarly, the employees and managers of Publicis Conseil whose images are used on this Site have consented to the use of these visual documents in the context of this Site, and only within this context. No reproduction, representation, or use whatsoever of these photos and films may be made by the users of the Site without the prior written consent of Publicis Conseil. Any use, even if partial, of these documents in violation of the aforementioned obligation shall expose the culprit to legal proceedings.
3 - PROHIBITION OF THE PUBLICATION OF ILLEGAL CONTENT
The users of this Site, and in particular those who post content following Creative briefs published by Publicis Conseil or those who take part, where applicable, in a discussion forum opened by Publicis Conseil, shall refrain from publishing Content of any nature whatsoever that is likely to glorify crimes against humanity, or to encourage racial hatred, child pornography, or violence, or to offend human dignity. The same applies to users of the Site who participate in the “Questions & Alerts” section. In accordance with the laws in force and the provisions of the French Penal Code, Publicis Conseil will be obligated to declare to the legal authorities any behaviour or content of this nature. If a user of this Site wishes to alert Publicis Conseil of the presence of content considered to be illegal, he/she is encouraged to send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, and to post it with an acknowledgement of receipt to the following address: Publicis Conseil - Site Internet Publicisgroupe.com - 133, avenue des Champs-Elysées 75008 PARIS.
