Article 2 – Access to the solution -Maintenance – Hotline – Data hosting

The Stampyt Suite solution is accessed via the creation of one or more personal accounts by the User, hereinafter referred to as Registered User(s).Upon completion of the registration process, the Registered User shall receive confirmation of their username and password, this data being strictly confidential.

The Registered User may, at any moment, generate a new password via the Stampyt Suite solution. Users are encouraged to do so regularly to ensure the security and integrity of their access to the solution.

The Registered User is solely liable for any use made of the solution by means of their username and password. They are the sole guarantor for their confidentiality, as well as for any use of their account.

The Registered User undertakes to immediately inform the Supplier, using the Supplier email address indicated in Article 16, of any unauthorised use of their account and of any security or confidentiality breach regarding their identification methods. 

Should the Supplier have valid grounds to believe that the security of the Registered User's account has been breached, or that the account has been subject to improper use following unauthorised use of the Registered User's identification methods, it may temporarily suspend the account, namely in order to preserve the integrity of the solution and data, and, if deemed appropriate, it may also request that the identification methods are changed.

In the scenario whereby their identification methods are revealed to a third party due to their own actions, the Registered User is solely liable for any use of the said identification methods and for any consequent use of the Stampyt Suite solution.

2.2- Maintenance 

Given the particular nature of the internet network, access to the solution may be interrupted or limited by a cause extraneous to the Supplier, and namely caused by the Client's internet access provider. In such cases, the Supplier may not be held liable.

The Supplier may not be held liable in the event of interrupted access to the Stampyt Suite solution due to maintenance operations, updates or technical improvements, or due to work carried out to develop the solutions content and/or presentation, insofar as these interruptions shall be notified and that they shall not go beyond necessary uses.

The Supplier may update the applications without client consent in order to resolve security faults identified in the IT domain.

Maintenance of the Stampyt Suite solution only includes corrective maintenance. It does not give rise to any rights to additional services that may be developed by the Supplier.

The Client may submit development proposals to the Supplier, which shall be examined within 15 days of the request. Should the request be feasible, a positive response will be returned, accompanied by a schedule and quote.

The Client must designate an Application manager, who shall be the primary contact point for the Supplier, in order to centralise anomalies and developments desired by Users.

Any Supplier maintenance work is carried out under the following conditions, in line with the anomalies encountered and reported by Clients to the email address [email protected]. Any reports submitted to this email address generate an intervention ticket.

For Critical Anomalies, which concern anomalies resulting in the unavailability of the solution tools, an intervention time of one (1) hour following the intervention ticket generation is guaranteed. The guaranteed repair time is four (4) hours following the intervention ticket generation.

For Significant Anomalies, which concern anomalies resulting in the unavailability of some features, an intervention time of one (1) day following the intervention ticket generation is guaranteed. The guaranteed repair time is two (2) days following the intervention ticket generation.

For Minor Anomalies, which concern anomalies resulting in only minor solution malfunctions, an intervention time of four (4) days following the intervention ticket generation is guaranteed. The guaranteed repair time is five (5) days following the intervention ticket generation.

If the anomaly is subject to an intervention ticket generated by a tool which has not been developed by the Supplier and which is used by the Client in interaction with the solution (CRM, DMS, etc.), Stampyt does not process this ticket, and the Client is thus invited to contact the supplier in question.

The intervention ticket sent by the Client to the Supplier by email must specify the device used, the phone type (iOS, Android) or browser used, as well as the username of the Registered User who encountered the anomaly and, where possible, the action which triggered it. 

The deployment time for corrections concerning mobile applications cannot be guaranteed by the Supplier as it depends on the processing time of the various app stores. 

For indicative purposes, a correction for an Android or iOS application may take one (1) day or five (5) to ten (10) days, respectively, in addition to the time required for the resolution of the correction, it being specified that the Supplier may not be held liable for the validation times of iOS or Android operators.

For this, the Client is required to take out Level 2 insurance. 

The Client shall report their issue by email to the Supplier, which in turn undertakes to respond the same day, either by email with a link to a FAQ or document, or by contacting the relevant person by phone if the request cannot be processed by other means.

Article 10 End of agreement

The termination of the Agreement shall result in the suspension of access to the Stampyt Suite solution, including access to the data hosted in relation to the solution on the servers of the Supplier or of its hosting operator. 

Article 11 Force majeure

In the event of force majeure or any other cause which cannot be predicted or controlled by one of the parties, and which by nature prevents the fulfilment of their contractual obligations, the Party hindered must inform the other Party by any means necessary as soon as possible, with confirmation by registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt within THREE (3) DAYS. It must provide evidence for the existence and the cause of this event with a maximum of SIX (6) DAYS following its occurrence. It must report the end of this event as soon as possible.

The obligations of the Parties shall be suspended throughout the duration of the force majeure, and the Parties shall use all due diligence to limit the duration and effects of the cause of the force majeure. Nevertheless, should this duration exceed ONE (1) MONTH, the Parties shall convene to discuss the conditions for the continuation or potential termination of this agreement.

Cases of force majeure namely include wars, riots, civil unrest, earthquakes, fires, explosions, storms, floods or other natural disasters, strikes, lock-out or other industrial actions (unless the strikes, lock-out or other industrial actions are caused by or controlled by the party invoking the force majeure clause), confiscations, and acts of state.

Article 12 Unforeseen circumstances

 

In the event of significant commercial or economic circumstances of any kind come to be detrimental to either party or the fulfilment of this Agreement, the conditions of the latter shall be revised by mutual agreement and good faith amongst the parties, within sixty (60) days following the request, which shall be submitted in writing by one party to the other, so as to remedy this inequitable effect. Under all circumstances, neither of the parties must terminate fulfilment of their services throughout this negotiation period.

 

Should the parties conclude a new agreement, the Agreement shall continue under the new conditions.

 

Should these negotiations be unsuccessful, and subject to a notice period of sixty (60) days, the claimant party shall choose between the early termination, without indemnity, of this agreement and its continuation, agreeing to bear the financial consequences of the implemented modification.


Article 13 - Liability

Each of the Parties of the Agreement shall bear the company's financial risks resulting from these General Terms and Conditions and their fulfilment. Consequently, the liability of the Publisher may not be invoked for obligations that the Client commits to in liaison with the Agreement. The Parties hereby agree that the Publisher's liability may not be invoked other than for direct and tangible damages which are likely to be caused for the Client, excluding any indirect damages including (but not exhaustively): loss of production, loss of business, loss of use, loss of earnings… Under all circumstances, this liability shall be limited to the total of the services paid for by the Client over the past twelve (12) months, this due on the date of application of this liability, and not exceeding a total of ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND (100,000) EUROS.

Article 14 – Transfer of the agreement

This agreement and its appendixes may not be transferred or assigned, in whole or in part, by the User without prior authorisation provided in writing by the Supplier.

Article 15 - Guarantee limit and interoperability

On the signature date of these General Terms and Conditions, the Client declares that they have been informed that the licensed solution, in order to ensure its correct and proper function, and strictly within the limits of the applicable legislations and particularly within those set out in Articles L 122-6-1 and L 331-5 of the French Intellectual Property Code, liaises with third parties, for which the Client or the Client's approved distributor holds a usage license. This liaison has the purpose of ensuring that the data produced by the Client's distributor (vehicle stock display, vehicle ID No., vehicle presentation photos) is compatible with the use of third-party solution. It is specified that this liaison may generate additional costs from the third-party solution, which shall remain at the expense of the Client.

Consequently, the correct and proper functioning of the licensed solution is therefore interdependent on access to the third-arty application, i.e. usage rights for the Client's distributor, but also on free access to the third-party application code. 

Under these conditions, STAMPYT shall not be able to guarantee the correct and proper functioning of its application should the Client's distributor lose its usage rights for the third-party application or should the third party implement technical restrictions on access to the coding of its application, preventing all operability. 

Article 16 - Personal data

The Parties agree to respect the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and more specifically, all of the provisions stipulated in the Appendix to this Agreement.

The User has rights to access, rectify, amend or delete their personal data. They may exercise these rights by directly contacting the Supplier via the following email address: [email protected]

Article 17 – Applicable law

This agreement is governed by French law.

Article 18 – Assignment of jurisdiction

Any disputes arising between the Parties concerning the validity, fulfilment, interpretation or termination of this agreement, which cannot be amicably resolved, shall be subject to the jurisdiction of the Commercial Court of Paris (France) and tried by application of French law, as stipulated in the previous article.

Article 19 – Election of domicile

For the fulfilment of this agreement and any addenda, the Parties elect domicile to their head offices, the addresses of which are indicated at the head of this agreement.
