General terms of use

    Article 1 - Scope

  1. The purpose of these 'general terms of use' is to provide a legal framework for the procedures to make QR-Help services available and for their use by 'the User' (term defined in 3.1).

    The general terms of use must be accepted by all Users wishing to access the site. They constitute the contract between QR-Help and the User. By accessing the site, the User acknowledges his acceptance of these general terms of use. In the event of non-acceptance of the general terms of use stipulated in this contract, the User must waive access to the services offered by the site.

    Special services may be provided on the basis of special terms of use which complete or modify the general terms of use. In the event that the general terms of use are in contradiction or inconsistency with the special terms of use, the latter shall prevail. In the case of contradictions or inconsistencies in the translations of the terms, the French version prevails.
