INFORMATION, RESPONSBILITIES AND GUARANTEES RELATING TO MEANS OF ACCESS TO SERVICES

TAIGA puts in place the necessary means for ensuring that the Services work correctly. TAIGA takes the necessary measures to maintain continuity and quality of the Services according to agreements entered into between the User’s representative and TAIGA.
TAIGA cannot be held responsible for disruptions to the internet due to force majeure events as defined by the case law of the French Supreme Court or due to planned maintenance of the Services by TAIGA. Likewise, TAIGA cannot
be held responsible for the installation and operation of the terminals used by the User to access the Services where these are not supplied by TAIGA.
The transfer rates and response times for information travelling from the TAIGA platform to the internet are not guaranteed by TAIGA. Users acknowledge that information transmission speed does not depend on the Services offered by TAIGA but is determined by the characteristics inherent in electronic communication networks and by the technical characteristics of the method of connection used (cable, ADSL, 3G, 4G, etc.) as well as by the User’s internet access.
TAIGA cannot be held responsible under any circumstances for any indirect damage suffered by Users when using the Services. Damage is considered to be indirect where it does not originate exclusively and directly from the failure of TAIGA Services.

PRIOR INFORMATION ABOUT SERVICES

The Website offers the possibility for Users to use the various software solutions offered through a contract existing between their employer and TAIGA.
The employer alone is responsible for the cost of the equipment (computer, telephone, software, means of electronic communication) required to access and use the Services and for the electronic communication costs (telephone costs, internet access costs) resulting from the use of such equipment.

SERVICES

In accordance with a contract drawn up between the employer company and TAIGA, Users are provided with information enabling them to access the services made available by their employer when connecting for the first time. Users must change their password on the first connection.
Users alone are responsible for the use of their Identifiers, even if they pre-save their Identifier on their computer, mobile phone or on any other type of device thus allowing automatic connection to the Services.
Any access, use of Services and transmission of data made from a User’s account will be deemed to have been made by that User. Users alone are responsible for ensuring the confidentiality of their Identifiers. Users are therefore required to ensure that they properly disconnect from the Services at the end of each session and, in particular, when accessing the Services from a public computer. Users alone are responsible for any loss, misuse or unauthorised use of their Identifiers and for any resulting consequences. In all of the cases mentioned above, Users must notify TAIGA immediately, stating their Identifiers, last name and first names, by emailing the following address: contact@taiga-cm.com, so that TAIGA can reset the User account.
Users may change their login details at any time by contacting their employer directly or by emailing TAIGA at: contact@taiga-cm.com,

THIRD PARTY WEBSITES

If the Services contain hypertext links to websites published by third parties (hereinafter « Third Party Websites ») over which TAIGA has no control, TAIGA assumes no responsibility for the content of those Third Party Websites or the content to which they may link. The presence of hypertext links to Third Party Websites does not mean that TAIGA in any way endorses the content of those sites. TAIGA is not responsible for any modification or updating of Third Party Websites. TAIGA is not responsible for the transmission of information from Third Party Websites or for the incorrect operation of those sites.

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY
