ARTICLE 2 – DESCRIPTION OF THE WEBSITE
The Website may only be accessed online.
It was created for healthcare professionals as a tool for differentiating between patients presenting with infantile haemangioma who require prompt referral to a center of expertise and those who require regular monitoring (hereafter the “Services”).
In accordance with article 4 below, the final decision to refer the patient to an expert center is up to the healthcare professional and the parents and not to PFD.
The Website in no way constitutes a contractual offer. It is free to use, offers nothing for purchase, and contains no form of advertising.
PFD does not guarantee the accuracy or exhaustiveness of the information published on the Website or of the Services. PFD will make the necessary rectifications. Furthermore, this information and these Services may be updated between the moment a User first sees them and the moment they read them. Consequently, PFD in no way guarantees that this information and these Services are accurate, complete and up to date.
ARTICLE 3 – ACCESSING THE WEBSITE
3.1. Technical requirements
To access the Website, the User must possess the necessary hardware and software resources to use the Internet. To access the Website via a computer, tablet or mobile phone (hereinafter the “Device”), the User must possess an appropriate high-speed Internet connection or a telephone contract that enables Internet access via a computer, a tablet or a compatible mobile phone, such as a smart phone (iOS or Android), WAP connection, Wi-Fi, or 3G/4G.
The User acknowledges that the terms of their contract with their Internet or mobile phone provider continue to apply while they are using the Website. The User alone is liable for any fees charged by the provider in relation to accessing the Internet connection services, Wi-Fi, WAP and/or 3G/4G and using the Website.
While using the Website, the User undertakes not to impede or disrupt the operation of the Website, servers and/or networks; not to modify, adapt or pirate the Website; and not to modify an application or third-party website in such a way as to create confusion regarding its connection with the Website.
The User is aware of the constraints and limitations of Internet networks and telecommunications and therefore undertakes to:
• protect their Device against any form of virus or any unauthorized attempt at intrusion, access and/or use by third parties;
• ensure that their Device is installed, used and maintained in the necessary ways to enable the Website to function properly.
3.2. User obligations
The User acknowledges that the Service is provided “as is”.
While using the Website, the User undertakes not to infringe current laws and regulations, particularly those pertaining to intellectual property, and not to impair the proper functioning of the Website.
The User undertakes not to:
• Download, send or communicate by email or by any other means any content that is illegal, harmful, threatening, abusive, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, hateful, or racist, that constitutes harassment, that threatens the privacy of others, or that is reprehensible in any other way;
• View, display, download or communicate any content that may infringe current laws in the country where the Website is viewed, particularly those relating to intellectual property;

• Harass any other User or Users in any way;
• Collect and store personal or identification data relating to other Users.
There is no plan for registration on the Website.
ARTICLE 4 – USE OF ADVICE DISPENSED ON THE WEBSITE
Advice on the management of diagnosed cases of infantile haemangioma is made available to the User on the Website (hereafter “Advice”). This does not imply any transfer of ownership of the Advice. The User is granted non-exclusive access to and use of the Advice for their private use only. For this reason, the User is forbidden to copy or reproduce any or all of the Advice by any means or in any format that exists now or in the future, to translate the Advice into any other language or form of communication, or to adapt the Website.
PFD cannot be held responsible for any direct or indirect repercussions and/or any loss or damage caused if the Advice is flawed or pirated.
Furthermore, PFD cannot be held liable for the Advice that will be dispensed to Users.
Lastly, PFD makes no implicit or explicit guarantee and assumes no responsibility in relation to the use of the Advice. The Advice is provided for information purposes only and must be confirmed by healthcare professionals who will make the final decision in consultation with the parents and who assume full responsibility for that decision.
ARTICLE 5 – GUARANTEES AND LIABILITY
The User alone is entirely responsible for use of the Website and Advice. They undertake to use the Website and Advice in accordance with their intended purpose.
PFD guarantees Users unimpeded use of the Website, and guarantees in particular that the Website is original and does not infringe any intellectual property rights held by third parties. PFD guarantees that the Website’s content complies with current French legal provisions and the industry standards that apply to websites.
The User undertakes not to voluntarily or even involuntarily introduce any virus, bug or file of any kind that disrupts the proper functioning of the Website. The User alone will be held fully liable for any such event.
To ensure that all parties are respected, PFD may take legal action against inconsiderate Users.
The User states and guarantees that they are perfectly aware of the nature and limitations of the Internet, and in particular that the transmission of data and information via the Internet cannot always be relied upon since this data and information moves through diverse networks with differing technical characteristics and capacities, and that this may, therefore, disrupt access or make it impossible at certain times.
PFD cannot be held liable for any damage that arises from the User’s connecting to the Website or using the Website and Advice.
PFD cannot be held liable for any errors, omissions, viruses or outcomes that may arise from misuse of the Services, Advice or Website, since PFD is bound by no more than a duty of best efforts.
PFD and the directors and employees of PFD/Pierre Fabre Dermo-Cosmétique cannot be held liable for:
– damage of any kind that arises from connecting to, accessing or using the Website or Advice;
– damage that directly or indirectly results from viewing the Website or using the Services available on it;
– damage that directly or indirectly results from use of the Website, including any financial or commercial loss, any loss of business income, or the loss of the Website or data in any information system even if PFD is aware of the possibility of such damage.
In no way can PFD be held liable for any loss of information or the Services, nor for any deterioration arising from this Service. Any Advice or Service provided by the Website cannot be construed as a guarantee of any kind.
Subject to applicable legal and regulatory provisions, PFD cannot be held liable for any damage which arises from the use or impossibility of using the Website as well as, more broadly, from any event connected with the Website and/or any third-party website. Such damage includes, but is not limited to, loss of profit, clients, data or intangible assets.
5.2. Modification or discontinuation of the Website
PFD makes every effort to ensure that the Website is accessible 7 days a week and 24 hours a day but is bound by no obligation to achieve this. PFD may, therefore, interrupt access to it, particularly for maintenance or upgrading. PFD is in no way liable for any of these interruptions or for any resulting repercussions for the User or any third party.
PFD reserves the right to change or delete the Website without prior notice and without incurring any liability. The deletion or modification of the Website in no way justifies any compensation for the User nor any award of damages.
The User acknowledges and expressly accepts that:
• PFD does not guarantee that the Website or Services/Advice will meet the User’s expectations; that the Website or Services/Advice will be uninterrupted, appropriate, safe and free of errors; that the results that may be obtained by using the Services will be accurate and reliable; that the quality of all of the Advice, information and any other resources obtained by the User through the Service will meet their expectations; and that any defects in the software used, should any exist, will be rectified.
• Any resources downloaded or obtained in any other way while using the Service are at the User’s own risk. The User alone is responsible for any damage to their computer or any loss of data resulting from the download of these resources.
