Terms of Use

 

The Company Registry

The website www.thecompanionship-registry.com (hereinafter the Platform) is managed by company number 0669.912.286 (hereinafter the Administrator)

 

The mere fact of your use of the Platform constitutes your full and irrevocable acceptance of the following terms of use.

The Administrator reserves the right to change these terms and conditions at any time and without prior notice. We, therefore, recommend that you consult it regularly.

 

Publication of an ad

The user guarantees that any ad that he wishes to publish on the Platform meets the quality criteria that a visitor to the Platform can reasonably expect: the description of the services and the conditions must be correct, clear and unambiguous. The elements of the description of the ad must be submitted in advance to the Administrator via the following e-mail address info@thecompanionship-registry.com, who unilaterally decides whether or not to publish. Any false or misleading ad can be removed at any time by the Manager in accordance with the provisions in the section "Limitation of the publication of ad" below.

The photos intended for publication must have a good resolution (minimum 1920x1080 pixels). In order to maintain the quality of our services, the Administrator has the option in advance not to publish a photo.

The administrator reserves the right to make technical changes to the content, and in particular to the content of the advertisements (for example, in the context of reuse). This may be necessary, among other things, to make the advertisements accessible on various channels, including mobile phones.

 

Restriction on the publication of advertisements

The pricing of an ad is determined before publication. The user may not change his ad by replacing one type of offer with another. In this case, he must place a new ad at the rate applicable to the chosen offer. Even if the user removes his ad from the platform early, he cannot claim a full or partial refund. The user accepts that once an ad has been placed on the platform and paid for, there is no right of withdrawal or full or partial refund for this ad.
 

We reserve the unilateral right to deactivate or refuse an advertisement placed on our platform, before the end of the publication period and without compensation, in the following cases:

 

  • Descriptive text violates these Terms of Use.

  • An ad is wrong, or an ad is illegal.

 

Access ban to the platform

We reserve the right to unilaterally prohibit access to all or part of the platform to any physical or legal person:

 

  • who would violate these Terms of Use,

 

  • who would use the personal data to which he may have access through the platform to offer paid products or services or to send unsolicited messages to the e-mail addresses of other Internet users ("spamming") for any commercial purpose or on another unauthorized manner;

 

  • who would place false advertisements on the platform, advertisements already placed by the same physical or legal person or illegal advertisements;

 

  • which would damage the good reputation of the Manager or the platform in a certain way;

 

  • that would infringe on the intellectual rights of third parties;

  • who would use the platform for unlawful purposes. We also reserve the right to prosecute the same persons.
     

Availability of the platform

Although we are committed to making the Platform available seven days a week and 24 hours a day, we reserve the right to interrupt access to the platform at any time and without prior notice for technical or other reasons. We also reserve the right to terminate our services without being held responsible for these interruptions and the possible consequences thereof for you or for third parties.

The Administrator will, as far as possible, ensure that the platform and the files can be downloaded and are free of bugs, viruses, Trojan horses, spyware and other malicious or unapproved software. However, it cannot be ruled out that these things are still present. The Administrator can under no circumstances be held liable for any damage and/or loss resulting from this for the user. The Administrator strongly advises the user to install firewalls, an antivirus program and other necessary security programs on his device.
 

Links to other sites

In certain sections, the platform contains hyperlinks to third-party content or to websites operated by third parties. We are not responsible for the quality and correctness of the content or for these websites themselves. Nor can we be regarded as an authority that generally approves, publishes or authorizes these websites or their content. The operators of these websites are, therefore, solely responsible for complying with the laws and regulations related to the products and services they offer for sale on their website, in particular with regard to consumer protection, distance selling, legislation in related to prices, protection of personal data, etc.

 

Responsibility for the content posted by users on the platform.

All texts, data, photos, videos, messages or any other form of content posted by a user on the platform is under his sole responsibility. The Administrator cannot be held responsible for the content posted on the Platform by users.

The user:

 

  • represents, accepts and warrants that the Administrator has the right to use and publish all content (text, images, information) that the user posts or publishes on the Platform in order to perform the service(s) requested by the user;

  • grants the Platform a license to the posted content. This license must be free, worldwide, non-exclusive, transferable and sub-licensable to allow the Administrator to use, publish and reproduce the content in the context of the operation and promotion of its services and those of third parties;

  • accepts that these data are used by the Manager to create reference points or a history. These reference points can be used by professionals in the context of their services. Under no circumstances will the history mention the contact details of the person who published the ad. The content will be anonymized and kept indefinitely for the purposes mentioned above.

 

Intellectual Rights

The entire content of the Platform, including the texts, graphics, logos, buttons, images, code, database and icons, is the intellectual property of the Administrator and is protected by intellectual property rights, such as copyrights and the rights of the producer of a database.

The design of the platform (plan, choice and arrangement of the sections, organization of the data, ...) are protected by the legal policy with regard to copyright. The Administrator prohibits the reuse of the entire content of the platform or of a qualitative or quantitative part thereof. The Belgian law of 31 August 1998 on the legal protection of databases (transposition of European Directive No. 96/9/EC) stipulates that infringement of these rights is subject to penalties ranging up to a fine of €500,000 and, in case of repetition, up to 2 years in prison.

With this document, the Administrator grants the user of the Platform a non-exclusive, non-transferable and revocable license at any time without reason to access, display and download the content on a computer for the sole purpose of consulting this content. The user may also print a copy of the content displayed on the Platform for his personal use only, provided that he does not modify the content of the Platform in any way and that he retains all attributions of authorship and origin of the platform. Reproduction is, therefore, only permitted for personal use and as a personal copy within the meaning of the copyright law.

Certain names, features and logos on the Platform are registered trademarks or trade names owned by the Administrator. Any use of names, brands and logos and/or the unauthorized use of similar signs is prohibited unless expressly and in advance by the licensees.

Any copy, translation, adaptation, modification or any use whatsoever of the whole or of any of the protected elements of the Platform, in any form and by any means, is strictly prohibited without the prior written consent of the Administrator. Any commercial use of the content of the Platform is strictly prohibited.

Unless explicit refusal which need not be justified, the creation of a hyperlink to the start pages of the Platform is permitted. Any hyperlink to a page within the sites is therefore prohibited unless explicit and prior permission from the Administrator.

Under no circumstances can the Administrator be held responsible vis-à-vis visitors to the Platform for complaints or legal actions brought against them by a third party claiming that the use of any element of the content of the platform or any of the products or services offered by the platform would infringe its intellectual property rights.

 

Miscellaneous provisions, applicable law and case law

The invalidity, voidness or unenforceable nature of all or part of any of the above provisions shall not invalidate all terms of use of this document. The provision in question is deemed not to have been written, and the user accepts that the Administrator will replace this provision with another that will, as far as possible, have the same function.

For any dispute arising from the use of the platform, Belgian law applies, and only the courts of Antwerp, Antwerp department, have jurisdiction.
