Accuracy of information

We guarantee the accuracy of information at the time it is posted on the site and not at a later date. We accept no liability whatsoever for the accuracy of any document, data or other content after it is altered or modified in any way, after being downloaded or otherwise.

In the event of a discrepancy between an official text and the content of this site, the official text prevails.

Intellectual property rights

We hold exclusive intellectual property rights over the documents that we produce and publish, regardless of whether they were produced by our personnel or by a third party who has assigned the rights to us or granted us a user licence. Intellectual property rights include copyrights, trademarks and patents.

For example, the compilations of data and information contained on our site are protected by copyright in the same manner as multimedia, literary, musical and artistic works.

Unless otherwise indicated and subject to exceptions provided by statute, no material that is subject to intellectual property rights may be used by a third party without the appropriate authorizations, licences, permissions or grants of interest from or by the holder of the rights. This applies notably to reproduction or storage for any purpose other than those strictly permitted.
