ARTICLE 22 - TRANSFERABILITY AND SUBCONTRACTING
The Service provider reserves the right to transfer all or part of the performance of the services to Service provider’s meeting the same qualification criteria.
If the service requires particular technical skills, the Service provider shall inform the Client of the possibility of subcontracting part of it. The subcontractor shall then act under the sole responsibility of the Service provider and shall undertake to keep confidential all information of which it has knowledge during the performance of the services.
ARTICLE 23 - CLAIMS
All claims, whether amicable or judicial, relating to the performance of the services must be made within one year of the end of the performance of the service.
ARTICLE 24 - RIGHT OF WITHDRAWAL AND TRIAL PERIOD
The Customer benefiting from the provisions of the Consumer Code has a period of 14 working days from the date of conclusion of the contract, i.e. acceptance of the present terms and conditions as part of his order, (Except tacit renewal) to cancel an order and request a refund without penalty.
The Customers benefiting from the right of withdrawal are:
- Consumers and
- Professionals when the contract is concluded off-premises, when it does not fall within the professional's main field of activity and when the number of employees employed by the professional is less than or equal to five (C. consom., art. L. 221-3).
However, this right of withdrawal is excluded for service contracts, the performance of which has begun, with the agreement of the Client, before the end of the withdrawal period
The Customer is informed that he or she may benefit from a free 30-day trial period of the Services (unless ordering additional services, such as training, special developments, etc.) starting at the same time as the right of withdrawal. Therefore, even if the 14-day withdrawal period is exceeded, the Customer may still, before the end of the 30-day period, waive the right to continue his or her experience with the Services, so that it does not cost him or her anything. To not proceed with the free trial, the customer has no action to take. If he wants to follow up, he can subscribe online or contact the sales department.
The right of withdrawal can be exercised online, using the retraction form available in Annex 1. In this case, an acknowledgement of receipt on a durable medium will be immediately communicated to the Client. Any other method of declaration of withdrawal is accepted. It must be unambiguous and express the willingness to retract.
Professional Customers other than those referred to in the second paragraph of this article do not benefit from the right of withdrawal provided for by the Consumer Code. However, they benefit from the 30-day trial period offered by the Service Provider.24.1
In the event that the Customer has the right of withdrawal and decides to subscribe to the Services for a fee during the period of exercise of his right of withdrawal and pays for the Services on his own initiative (although offered free of charge for 30 days), the Service provider should reimburse the Customer for all sums paid, including delivery charges, without undue delay and at the latest within 14 days from the date on which he is informed of the Customer's decision to withdraw (C. Consumption, art. L. 221-24).
In accordance with Article L. 242-4 of the Consumer Code, when the Service Provider has not reimbursed the sums paid by the Consumer Client, the sums due are automatically increased:
- the legal interest rate if the repayment is made no later than 10 days after the expiry of the 14-day period set out above,
- 5% if the delay is between 10 and 20 days,
- By 10% if the delay is between 20 and 30 days,
- By 20% if the delay is between 30 and 60 days,
- 50% between 60 and 90 days,
- And five additional points for each additional month of delay up to the product price, then the legal interest rate.
