8. REPORTING OF ILLEGAL ACTIVITIES AND CONTENT

It is expressly stated that LYKO does not have control over the content published on the Platform and that it does not have the technical, material and human resources to carry out systematic checks of such content.

If a User notices that another User is violating any of the rules of conduct referred to in Article 5 above and more generally if a User becomes aware of any illegal activity or content, the User must immediately inform LYKO using the “contact us” function, then “report illegal content or activity”, appearing within the Platform.

The User must therefore provide LYKO with all necessary information, and in particular:

the date of notification;
if it is a natural person, its full name, profession, domicile, nationality, date and place of birth; if it is a legal person, its form, name, registered office and the natural person legally representing it;
the description of the disputed facts and their precise location on the Collaborative Space;
and if it is illegal content:
the reasons why the content must be removed, including the applicable legal provisions and the justifications for the facts;
a copy of the communication addressed to the author or publisher of the disputed content requesting its interruption, removal or modification or justification of the fact that the author or publisher could not be contacted.

In the event that the content is illegal and as soon as the veracity of these elements is verified, LYKO will remove the disputed content or make it impossible to access it.

It is expressly stated that the fact that a User presents content to LYKO as illegal, even though he knows that the information is inaccurate, is likely to incur criminal liability.

LYKO reserves the right to delete any content appearing on the Collaborative Space that would violate the Conditions and/or to suspend or delete the User’s Account concerned under the conditions referred to in Article 10 below.

Similarly, in the event that it is an illegal activity, LYKO reserves the right to suspend or delete the User’s Account concerned under the conditions referred to in Article 10 below.

LYKO may consider it necessary to update or reset certain parameters of the Platform and its elements.

Thus, LYKO reserves the right to make the Platform evolve, in particular by making new functionalities available, or by modifying or deleting certain functionalities.

These updates, resets, evolutions are likely to temporarily prevent the User from accessing the Platform and/or to lead to a modification of the architecture of the Platform and its elements, which the User expressly acknowledges, and LYKO cannot be held liable in this respect.

 

10. SUSPENSION – DELETION

LYKO reserves the right to suspend or delete the Account of any User who does not comply with these Terms or applicable laws and regulations.

In addition, LYKO reserves the right to hand over any disputed content to the authorities upon request in the event of a breach of a legal provision.

In addition, LYKO reserves the right to take legal action directly against the offending User in order to obtain compensation for any damage suffered by him as a result.

 

11. RESPONSIBILITY

LYKO cannot be considered as responsible for the content posted by Users on the Collaborative Space, the User being solely responsible for such content to the exclusion of any other person.

LYKO is bound by a single obligation of means in connection with the provision of the Platform and shall in no event be liable for any loss, damage, direct or indirect damage of any kind whatsoever resulting from the management, use, exploitation, interruption or malfunction of the Platform.
