I. Conditions of use

Welcome to the Crefovi SELAS (“Crefovi“) Website (the “Website“). Crefovi operates as a “société d’exercice libéral par actions simplifiée” 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 Website as a source of legal advice. Your use of the Website does not create any solicitor-client relationship between you and Crefovi.

The Website contains electronic contact information for many Crefovi solicitors. The mere act of contacting a Crefovi solicitor electronically, however, does not create a solicitor-client relationship. If you wish to become a client of Crefovi, you must contact an appropriate Crefovi solicitor, and explicitly negotiate a retention. The Website is not an invitation to form a solicitor-client relationship.

Unless you have a solicitor-client relationship with Crefovi, we are not obliged to keep confidential information you may send us. Under no circumstances, therefore, should you send confidential information to Crefovi unless you have been authorised to do so by a Crefovi solicitor or you have a pre-existing documented solicitor-client relationship with Crefovi.

B. User conduct

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

F. Links to third party sites

Crefovi provides these links to you only as a convenience and the inclusion of any link does not imply recommendation, approval or endorsement by Crefovi of the site.

G. Service marks – permitted use of Crefovi service marks

Crefovi service marks identify Crefovi 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 Crefovi logos or “design” service marks (as opposed to our service marks consisting solely of words) under any circumstances without our prior written authorisation.

1. in a non-Crefovi 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 Crefovi’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 Crefovi marks to result in a hit on a page not maintained by Crefovi in a manner disparaging of Crefovi.

H. 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.

I. 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.
