Any use not expressly authorized by UNLATCH under the General Conditions is illegal. In particular, the Client is prohibited from:
The right of use granted by UNLATCH by the General Conditions does not involve the transfer of intellectual property for the benefit of the Client. Consequently, the Client refrains from any action which could directly or indirectly infringe the copyright on the Software.
In the event of a claim relating to the infringement by the Software Package of an intellectual property right in the United Kingdom, UNLATCH may, at its choice and at its expense, either replace or modify all or any part of the Software package, or obtain for the Client a user license, in order to allow it to use the Software, provided that the Client has complied with the following conditions:
In the event that none of these measures is reasonably possible, UNLATCH may unilaterally decide to terminate access to the Software Package and reimburse the Client for the fees paid over the last six (6) months of using the Software.
The provisions of this article define all of UNLATCH's obligations with regard to patent and copyright infringement resulting from the use of the Software.
The Client benefits from the supply and installation of corrective and technological updates to the Software. Furthermore, UNLATCH will provide the Client with telephone assistance and maintenance services (hereinafter “the Services”) relating to the Software.
UNLATCH provides the Client with a team of Support Consultants to provide technical and functional assistance for the Software. With the exception of public holidays and exceptional days when UNLATCH is closed, and except in cases of force majeure as defined herein, the hours of intervention of this assistance team are from 9:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. (UTC+1) from Monday to Friday.

The following are excluded from the Services provided by UNLATCH under these General Conditions:
In the event of an Anomaly, UNLATCH diagnoses the Anomaly, qualifies it and then implements its correction. Reports of Anomalies must be confirmed by the Client by email to UNLATCH without delay.

(b) In the event of a Major Anomaly, the report is taken into account within 72 working hours. UNLATCH strives to correct the anomaly as soon as possible, and offers a workaround that may allow the use of the functionalities in question.
(c) In the event of a Minor Anomaly, the report is taken into account as soon as possible, and UNLATCH proposes the correction of the minor anomaly in a new version of the Software which will be delivered as part of the ongoing maintenance.
The General Conditions do not cover the additional services recommended by UNLATCH or requested by the Client to meet its specific needs. Thus, for example, the services of specific IT developments, advice, training and consulting will be the subject of a quotation and a separate contract between the Client and UNLATCH.
In order to enable this service to be carried out, the Client undertakes in particular:
The Client undertakes to pay UNLATCH the amount of the fee provided for in the Quotation. UNLATCH reserves the right to revise each new Quotation by applying the new applicable rate (excluding a contractual agreement with the Client).
Invoices are issued when each new real estate development is put online. The Client expressly acknowledges and accepts that UNLATCH reserves the right to send them their invoice or credit note uniquely in an electronic format (PDF).
It is expressly agreed that in the event that several invoices are due and that the Client makes a partial payment, UNLATCH will be free to charge said payment as it sees fit.
Any late payment will give rise, without prior notice, to the application of late payment penalties at the rate of three times the legal interest rate, calculated per day of delay, as well as the invoicing of a flat fee compensation of £ forty (40) per invoice affected by the aforementioned late payment. In the event of non-payment of an invoice on its due date, UNLATCH may, without prior notice, demand immediate payment of all sums still owed to it by the Client, and suspend the services of the Software.
No compensation can take place without the formal agreement of UNLATCH.
This suspension does not entail any modification of the amount of the monthly fee which remains due for the entire period in progress.
Service will resume as soon as the cause of suspension has been removed.
UNLATCH also reserves the right not to accept the launch of a new real estate development on the Software as long as sums remain due to it.
The Client declares that it is familiar with the Internet, its characteristics and its limits, and recognises in particular:
15.1. Responsibility of the Client
The Parties acknowledge that only the Client has the ability to control the content passing through the Software.
As such, the Client is responsible for the data collected by them and passing through the Software. The Client guarantees that they have all the authorisations to use and / or distribute in the territory, information and data of any kind hosted by UNLATCH and is solely responsible for the consequences of making them available to the public, even if restricted on the internet.
15.2. Liability of UNLATCH
UNLATCH performs the contractual obligations at its expense with all possible care in use in its profession. Under these terms, UNLATCH is bound by an obligation of means and will not be held responsible for any delay in the execution of the aforementioned services. In addition, UNLATCH cannot be held liable in the event of inconsiderate application or failure to apply the advice for use provided in the context of assistance or advice not emanating from UNLATCH itself. Under no circumstances is UNLATCH liable either for third parties or for indirect damage such as, in particular, operating losses, commercial damage, loss of customers, loss of orders, commercial disturbance of any kind, loss of profit, damage to the brand image. Apart from cases of infringement action, any action directed against the Client by a third party constitutes indirect damage and therefore does not give rise to the right to compensation.
If the liability of UNLATCH were to be recognized, hereunder, by a final decision of a competent court, the compensation that could be claimed from it would be expressly limited to the amount of the fee received by UNLATCH, for the Software, for the period of twelve (12) months in progress at the time of the occurrence of the damage.
It is expressly agreed between the parties, and accepted by the Client, that the stipulations of this clause will continue to apply even in the event of resolution hereof noted by a court decision that has become final.
These provisions establish a distribution of risks between UNLATCH and the Client.
The price reflects this distribution as well as the limitation of liability described.
The parties will be fully released if the non-performance by one or the other of part or all of the obligations imposed on it results from a case of force majeure. Initially , the parties meet to determine the terms of continuation of their relations. If the cases of force majeure last longer than one (1) month, the Parties may terminate their commitments.
Expressly considered as cases of force majeure or fortuitous events, in addition to those usually retained by the jurisprudence of United Kingdom Courts and Tribunals: blocking, disturbance or congestion of telecommunications networks, poor quality of electric current, blocking of means of transport or supply for any reason, inclement weather, epidemics, earthquakes, fires, storms, floods, water damage, government or legal restrictions, as well as legal or regulatory changes forms of selling.
The end for any reason whatsoever of the relationship between the Parties does not give rise to the reimbursement of the sums collected by UNLATCH.. The Client also acknowledges having been warned that the non-renewal of the Contract will lead to the cessation of use of the Software.
17.1. Termination for convenience
The Client may terminate the right to Use the Software at any time. The Client sends UNLATCH its intention to no longer use the Software package by post or email. Upon receipt of the Client's termination request, UNLATCH will send an acknowledgment of receipt. The burden of proof of proper receipt by UNLATCH of the termination request rests with the Client.
17.2. Termination for fault
In the event of failure by one of the Parties to an essential obligation provided for in these General Conditions, not repaired within thirty (30) calendar days from the sending of a recorded letter with acknowledgment of receipt notifying the breach in cause, the other party may assert the end of its commitments subject to the damages which it could claim under these conditions.
The parties may, under these General Conditions, have access to confidential information of the other party.
Confidential information is not that which, in the absence of fault, is in the public domain; those which the receiving party was in possession of before their communication, without having received them from the other party; those communicated to the parties by third parties, without condition of confidentiality; and those that each party develops independently.
The party to whom confidential information will be communicated will preserve its confidentiality with care not inferior to that which it takes to the preservation of its own confidential information, and may not communicate or disclose it to third parties, unless it is is with the prior written consent of the other party or to the extent that may be required by law. The parties agree to take all reasonable measures to ensure that confidential information is not communicated to their employees or contractors in violation of these General Conditions.
All documents communicated by UNLATCH under this document will remain its exclusive property and will be returned to it upon request from it.
The fact that one of the parties does not invoke a breach by the other party of any of the obligations referred to herein cannot be interpreted for the future as a waiver of the obligation in question. The Client irrevocably waives any request, claim, right or action against UNLATCH relating to the execution of these General Conditions and which would be formulated more than twelve (12) months after the generating event, and therefore waives irrevocably to bring any action before any court on this basis against UNLATCH or any of the companies of the group to which it belongs.
These General Conditions express all the obligations of the parties. In the event of difficulties of interpretation between any of the titles appearing at the head of the clauses, and any of the clauses, the titles will be declared non-existent.
No general or specific condition appearing in the documents sent or submitted by the parties may be incorporated into the General Conditions with the exception of additional orders from the Client accepted by UNLATCH.
If one or more stipulations of the General Conditions are held to be invalid or declared as such in application of a law, a regulation or following a final decision of a competent court, the other stipulations will retain all their effect and their scope.
18.5. Commercial reference
UNLATCH may include the name of the Client for the promotion of the Software and in particular use its logo on commercial media (website, presentation brochure, etc.).
