The Customer is responsible for the choice of the conservation of his identifiers and must ensure their confidentiality. The Company cannot, under any circumstances, be held responsible for any identity theft and connections to customer accounts by third parties, if the Customer has not followed the aforementioned instructions.
The provision of personal information collected in the context of distance selling is mandatory. This information is necessary to process order deliveries and issue invoices. This information is strictly confidential. The Company undertakes to collect only the data strictly necessary for account creation and order placement purposes.
Once his personal account has been created, Customers can subscribe to a Premium Account by clicking on “Go premium” in his profile. The Customer clicks on the subscription plan he wants to subscribe to. He has the choice between several plans:
The price to be paid by the Customer is the amount stated on the order summary the Customer reads before the final validation of his purchase. Once payment has been made, the price is also stated in the invoice, sent by email to the Customer by Stripe (see Article 5.3).
The Stripe platform is the payment platform used by the Company to manage all payments. All Customers’ banking data are directly processed by their services. For more information or to contact them you can visit www.stripe.com. Consequently, the Company cannot be held liable for any payment issues or problems that may result from the bank details provided by the Customer.
The Customer can choose one of the following methods to pay his purchases:
Regarding payment by credit card, payment terms are as follows:
Notwithstanding the application of article R. 642-3 of the French Penal Code, the Customer will pay his order by credit card (cards with the CB symbol, cards of the brands VISA or EUROCARD or MASTERCARD) in accordance with the provisions of this article.
To pay his order by credit card, the Customer must enter his credit card number on the Website, along with its expiry date and the security code (3-digit number printed on the back of the credit card). This data is encoded on Stripe servers, which is the payment processing platform used by the Company to manage all payments. The Company does not keep Customers’ banking data, they are directly managed by Stripe. Stripe keeps the Customers’ banking data for the duration of their subscription. Such data will only be deleted by Stripe when the subscription is terminated.
The card is debited upon validation of the order. In the case of a subscription with a trial period, payment will be processed at the end of the trial period. In any event, the amount debited corresponds to the Service(s) actually ordered.
In all cases, the online supply of the credit card number or any other payment method and the final validation of the order shall be proof of the entire order, pursuant to articles 1353 et seq. of the French Civil Code. They will also cause the sums incurred for the order to become due and payable.
This validation is worth signing and express acceptance of all the operations performed on the Website.
Finally, the Customer ticks the box “I Accept the Terms of Sale” and clicks on “Agree and pay” to finalize his order.
For any provision of a Service, the bank installments corresponding to the renewal of monthly subscriptions will be processed with the bank information provided by the Customer when he first placed an order.
Since these Services may be renewed each month, Stripe, the payment platform on which the Customer’s bank data is stored, will inform the Customer by email, seven (7) days before the payment is to be processed for the upcoming month.
5.3. Order acknowledgement
Upon completion of payment, Stripe sends a summary of the order named “Invoice” by email to the email address provided by the Customer.
This document serves as an acknowledgement of receipt and includes all the elements of the contract concluded between the Parties.

Regarding Service orders, with the exception of special cases, any subscription comes into effect starting from the first day of the subscription and covers a determined period of one (1) month, three (3) months, six (6) months or twelve (12) months, based on the plan chosen.
At the end of the initial period, in order to avoid any discontinuity in the Service, the subscription contracts are automatically and tacitly renewed over successive periods of: one (1) month, three (3) months, six (6) months or twelve (12) months, at the price in effect during the month of the renewal as stated on the Website, provided the subscription has not been canceled by the Customer before it has expired, by clicking on “Cancel subscription” from his “Account Settings”.
ARTICLE 6 – RIGHT OF WITHDRAWAL AND REFUNDS
6.1. Trial period
When placing his first order, the Customer benefits from a trial period of seven (7) days from the day he subscribes to the Service. Therefore, during this trial period, the Customer may terminate his subscription at any time and without additional charge.
The subscription will only be processed on the eighth (8th) day. Therefore, the Customer must cancel his subscription in “Account Settings”, “Cancel Subscription”, before the 7th day at 00:00 am.
Please note that this trial period is only valid for the first subscription.
The Customer will not be able to benefit from it for subsequent subscriptions. Consequently, if the Customer who purchases the subscription does it for himself, then he will only be able to benefit from the trial period once.
On the other hand, if the subscriber purchases a subscription to gift it to another person as a “gifted subscription”, the person to whom the subscription has been gifted may benefit from the trial period only once. In this case, the subscriber will still be able to benefit from the trial period if he decides to subscribe for himself later on.
6.2. Absence of the right of withdrawal
The withdrawal period relating to the order of a Service is governed by the Consumer Code.
In addition, article L.121-21-8 of the Consumer Code provides that the right of withdrawal does not apply to the following contracts:
Prior express consent of the consumer shall be understood as the acceptance of these Terms upon placing the order.
Directive 2011/83/EU confirms the Consumer Code by stating in Article 16 that it is impossible to apply the right of withdrawal for the supply of digital content “if the execution has begun with the prior express consent of the consumer, who has also acknowledged that he will thus lose his right of withdrawal”.
