Agreement of proof
Evidence can be provided by any means.

Each Party undertakes to keep strictly confidential all documents and information of a legal, commercial, industrial, strategic, technical or financial nature relating to the other Party or held by it which comes to its knowledge in connection with the conclusion and performance of these Terms and Conditions and not to disclose them without the prior written consent of the other Party.
This obligation does not extend to documents and information:
of which the receiving Party was already aware,
which was already public at the time of their communication or which would become public without violation of this clause
which have been lawfully received from a third party
whose communication would be required by the judicial authorities, in application of laws and regulations or to establish the rights of a Party in the context of our contractual relationship

suspend access to the Services; and
charge the Brand a penalty up to 50,000 euros, as result of a breach of confidentiality, and without prejudice to any damages that MODARESA may claim as compensation for damages suffered.
In accordance with the provisions of article 1218 of the French Civil code, no Party may be held liable for a failure to perform its contractual obligations if this failure is due to an event beyond the control of the Parties and that constitutes a case of force majeure.
Force majeure is understood as the occurrence of an event that has the characteristics of unpredictability, irresistibility and exteriority to the Parties usually recognised by French law and courts. This includes strikes, terrorist activities, riots, insurrections, wars, governmental actions, natural disasters, or a defect attributable to a third-party telecommunication provider.
The Party prevented from doing so must inform the other Party as soon as possible, indicating the nature of the case of force majeure. The Parties shall meet in order to determine together the most appropriate means of mitigating, if possible, the consequences of the event(s) constituting force majeure.
If the case of force majeure lasts for more than one month, each Party may terminate the Services, as of right, without any judicial formality, without prior notice and without any right to compensation of any kind whatsoever, by any written means with immediate effect.
If, because of a case of force majeure, the affected Party is prevented from fulfilling only part of its contractual obligations, it shall remain responsible for the performance of those obligations that are not affected by the case of force majeure, as well as for its payment obligations.
As soon as the case of force majeure ceases, the Party prevented shall immediately inform the other Party and resume performance of the affected obligations within a reasonable period.

notify and cooperate with any competent authority and provide it with any information relevant to the investigation and prosecution of illegal or unlawful activities,
initiate any legal action.
These sanctions shall apply without prejudice to any damages MODARESA may claim against the Brand.

The modified Terms and Conditions will apply when the Brand renews its Subscription.
If the Brand uses the Services after the amended Terms and Conditions come into force, MODARESA shall consider that the Brand has accepted them.
