8. Exclusions of guarantee and limitation of liability


The exclusions of guarantee and limitations of responsibility listed below are governed by the law binding this contract.

8.1 - Exclusions of guarantee

The Client expressly acknowledge that they use the MonFax Service with full awareness. The MonFax service is provided with a maximum of professional conscience. Although BJT PARTNERS does not grant the Subscriber any specific guarantee, it will commit all of its resources to obtaining the most satisfactory result possible. BJT PARTNERS does not guarantee that the MonFax service will conform exactly to the Subscriber’s needs. The Subscriber acknowledges in turn that the characteristics and limitations of the Internet do not always guarantee security, availability or integrity of transmitted information. BJT PARTNERS does not guarantee the quality of results obtained through the MonFax service, nor the precision, safety of communications or transmissions, possible alteration of the data transmitted by the Subscriber, nor the accuracy of the information obtained through MonFax. The Client expressly agrees to use the service at their own risk and will thus take responsibility for verifying if a fax transmission has succeeded or failed. In particular, the Service may be momentarily interrupted due to maintenance, updates or technical improvements, or for the development of content and/or presentation. MonFax will take all steps possible to inform Subscribers prior to updates or maintenance operations. The Subscriber will not seek the responsibility of BJT PARTNERS with regard to function or use of the Services. The Subscriber acknowledges here that any material information or data downloaded or otherwise obtained through the MonFax service are done so at their own risk, and that they are solely responsible for any damage to their computer system or any loss of data resulting from such a problem. BJT PARTNERS assumes no responsibility in the case of destruction or loss of archived faxes or emails. No information nor advice, oral or written, obtained by the Subscriber from BJT PARTNERS or its services will create any additional guarantees.

BJT PARTNERS cannot be held responsible for content transferred through the Service. The Client alone is therefore responsible for the content of transmissions. The Client agrees to use the Service in accordance with the regulations in force and not to distribute illicit content. They are thus prohibited from using the Service for shocking, indecent, threatening, or anonymous, transmissions, or in a fraudulent manner or in the context of illegal activities. The Client must therefore take all reasonable precautions to ensure that this does not arise.

In particular, BJT PARTNERS cannot in any way be held responsible for transmissions sent or received through the Service.

8.2 - Limitation of liability

In no case can BJT PARTNERS, its vendors, employees or subcontractors be held responsible for indirect, incidental or consequential damages resulting from misuse or inexperience in using the MonFax service. No additional costs resulting from the provision of materials or substitute services will be refundable. The same is true for goods or services purchased or obtained, messages received or transactions carried out by or via the MonFax service or resulting from an attempt at unauthorised use, alteration of transfers or the Subscriber’s data. In addition are, while not being limited to, profits and losses, data and other intangible values, even if BJT PARTNERS could at any time be made aware of the possibility of such damages. Should BJT PARTNERS be held liable with regard to the execution of this contract, the Client may not claim any other compensation other than the satisfactory fulfillment of the service or reimbursement of payment for the service in default.

When opening an account, each Subscriber is provided with a username (one of the BJT PARTNERS numbers which the Subscriber may use to send or receive faxes) and a password which is strictly personal and confidential and should never be communicated to or shared with third parties. BJT PARTNERS does not have the means to ensure the identity of the persons subscribing to its Services and is not responsible in the case of a Subscriber’s stolen identity. In no case will BJT PARTNERS be responsible for the Subscriber’s loss and/or misappropriation of their username and/or password.

The Subscriber will be solely responsible for the use of their login by third parties and actions or statements made through their account, whether fraudulent or not. They guarantee BJT PARTNERS against any demand in this respect.

In addition, if the Subscriber has reason to believe that a person has used their login information or account, they must immediately inform MonFax.

The responsibility of BJT PARTNERS under the obligations of these General Conditions cannot be sought in the event of force majeure as defined by the French courts.

9. Property


By accepting the terms of these GC, the Client is aware and acknowledges that they do not own the telephone number or numbers (fax number, MonFax number, etc ...) by which BJT PARTNERS provides the MonFax service. The Client accepts as well that upon closure of their MonFax account for whatever reason, this number may be reassigned to another Subscriber or service after six months, with the Client expressly acknowledging that the company BJT PARTNERS will not be responsible for any inconvenience (nor specific damages) resulting from such reassignment, and and waives any and all claims relating to such reassignment, even if BJT PARTNERS has been advised of possible negative consequences for the Client.

10. Applicable law and attribution of jurisdiction


10.1 - Applicable law

The commercial relations of the parties are governed by French law and particularly by the provisions of the Civil Code.

10.2 - Jurisdiction

11. Archival
