www.globalstonemarket.com, like all its variations detailed in appendix.

It is expressly agreed that this Portal by no means allows subscription of products.

Any Member accessing this Portal agrees to meet these general terms and conditions without exceptions or reservations.

Each Member agrees not to modify, try to modify or cause detriment to the Portal in any way whatsoever and not to use any software or any type of computer program with the aim of attaining or providing content that is protected or not freely available. Members are also prohibited from creating a work or a site derived from all or part of this Portal.

Each Member is informed of the fact that storing contributions, texts, documents, photos, videos or any other form of media will involve compressing or automatic encoding of the data comprising them and may therefore reduce their quality.

3. Subscription to the portal 

Subscription to the Portal is free for Members. Only Members subscribed to the Portal can post Content on the Portal.

Subscription to the Portal is subject to the following cumulative conditions:

  • - The Member must choose a Username and a password, and provide his last name, first name, telephone number, email address, date of birth and a postal address.
  • - The Member must have an email address that is regularly checked and updated.
  • - The Member agrees not to use, in the public information comprising his Username and presentation text, elements likely to breach the peace, public decency, the law in effect in France, rights of third parties, or that may be unsuitable for minors. For this purpose, the Username may not be deceptive, offensive, encourage discrimination, hate or violence or be comprised of or remotely allude to:
    • - postal addresses, email addresses, telephone numbers,
    • - active or inactive hyperlinks,
    • - a brand, company name or the identity of an individual or legal entity without having acquired the necessary authorisations,
    Furthermore, it must also comply with the rule of referring to the GSM Portal and not be detrimental to the integrity of a person.
  • - The Member agrees not to use numbers with a surcharge when providing his telephone number.
  • - The Member must have full legal capacity.

Since the Usernames are chosen freely by the members, GSM cannot guarantee, beyond the conditions set out above, availability of the Username requested.
GSM reserves the right to ask the Member to provide written documents to prove that he meets these conditions.

The Member agrees to complete the fields of the subscription form on the Portal and to provide complete and accurate information. The Member agrees to update as soon as possible the information provided to GSM. It is expressly agreed that the Member is solely responsible for the consequences of failing to update this information.

The Member accepts that his public information will be moderated prior to its publication.

At the end of the subscription procedure, the Member chooses a Username and a Confidential Code to open his Personal Space.

To validate his email address, the Member will receive, after his subscription and confirmation of these User Conditions, an initial email summarising the Username entered during his subscription to the Portal and must then validate his email address by clicking on or copying into his browser the unique and personal URL sent in this initial email. On confirmation of this address, the Member will receive a second email confirming successful validation and the opening of his Account.

The Member expressly acknowledges that the liability of GSM cannot be incurred in the event of false declarations concerning the identity of Members.

4. Access to the Personal Account / Technical Operation

GSM provides a Personal Space to each Member subscribed to the Portal. The Member can only access his Personal Space using his Username and Confidential Code. The Username and Confidential Code are strictly personal and confidential. The Member agrees not to allow any third party to know his Username or Confidential Code.

The Member agrees to protect and keep secret his Username and Confidential Code. He agrees to inform GSM immediately of any compromise, loss or anomaly noticed.

The Member acknowledges that actions carried out in his Space will be attributed to him, in the absence of any request for revocation of the Username or Confidential Code compromised even without his knowledge, by a person using his Username and Confidential Code.

The Member is solely responsible for the consequences of disclosing his Username and Confidential Code.

GSM agrees to manage the Members' Accounts. GSM reserves the right to remove or suspend access to Members' Personal Spaces in the event of an established compromise or if there is suspicion of compromise concerning the Username or Confidential Code.

GSM reserves the right to suspend access to the Portal when it considers that an event likely to affect its operation or integrity necessitates it, or for maintenance, and this for the term required to carry out the planned work. If applicable, as soon as it knows of the dates of the work scheduled, GSM agrees to inform the Users as soon as possible, on the GSM homepage or by any other suitable method and to reduce the period of unavailability during the day. However, this suspension can by no means incur the liability of GSM and does not give rise to the right to any indemnity.

GSM advises each Member to take all necessary precautions and to use caution and common sense when browsing the Portal. 

The Member is allocated a web space that is personal to him. For these reasons, he agrees to post and update Content that complies with the rules of law and order and public decency.

The Member agrees to check the accuracy and completeness of information before posting it in his Personal Space.

A Space cannot be sold, loaned, pledged, transferred or granted for payment or free of charge.

The Member is also prohibited from exporting his Username and data relating to it to another site.

Each Member can only have one Personal Space.

GSM must take all possible measures to perform the services for which it is responsible under optimum conditions. It is expressly agreed that GSM is subject to an obligation of due care.

9.1. GSM's liability

GSM is liable in the event of breach of the obligations incumbent upon it pursuant to these conditions.

GSM, in its capacity as technical service provider, in particular in its capacity as host of the data shown in the Member's Personal Space, cannot be liable for the activities or information stored on request of a Member if it was unaware that they are illegal or of the facts and circumstances making it seem that they are illegal or if, as soon as it became aware of this, it acted promptly to withdraw this information or make access to it impossible.

GSM rejects any liability with regard to use of the Portal by Members, including, but not being limited to, the truthfulness of information communicated to the public and/or to other Members or Visitors.

By no means is GSM liable for losses such as in particular: financial or commercial loss, loss of customers, any sales problems, loss of profit, loss of brand image, loss of computer programs suffered by a Member that may result from non-performance of these general conditions, and which are, by express agreement, deemed to be indirect losses.

Any legal action taken against a Member by a third party is comparable to an indirect loss and, therefore, does not entitle the Member to compensation.

GSM will by no means be liable for damage resulting, even partially, from total or partial non-performance of the Member's obligations, as well as for any indirect damage, even if was aware of the possibility that such damage could occur.

GSM will not be liable and will not be deemed to have breached its obligations in the event of non-performance of all or part of these obligations or an interruption in their performance if this breach is due to a case of force majeure. In this case GSM will inform the Member and will try to find with him measures to be taken to remedy the situation created.

The Members will hold GSM harmless and compensate it for any damage suffered by GSM and for any action for damages that may be brought against GSM based on breach of these User Conditions and/or any right of a third party.

GSM assumes no liability for delays, alterations or other errors that may occur in sending information from the Portal when these events result from use of the networks or a fault of a Member. GSM is not liable for the unavailability of the networks (software or hardware) that are not entirely under its direct control, nor for any modification, suspension or interruption in availability of the said Portal, as well as its continuity, durability, conformity, compatibility or performance or the absence of bugs. Furthermore, the rates of transfer and downloading from this Portal are not guaranteed.

GSM cannot be considered liable for fraudulent use by a third party of the Username and/or Confidential Code of Members.

GSM will not be considered liable for Members' Content. 

Hyperlinks on the Portal may link to other sites. GSM is not liable for the content or actions of these sites, or for damage or loss resulting from or in connection with access or use of these sites, or more generally any external source.

Within the limits authorised by the law, GSM cannot be held liable in the event that the content of the other sites contravenes current legal and regulatory provisions.

Furthermore, GSM assumes no liability for:

  • - use of services by Members that do not comply with current regulations relating to software protection;
  • - normal wear of Members' electronic media, or deterioration of information stored on the said electronic media due to the influence of magnetic fields;
  • - information, images, sounds, text or videos that are contrary to current legislation and regulations, contained and/or distributed on the Member's Personal Space;
  • - infringement of intellectual property rights relating to works published, in whole or in part, on the Member's Personal Space without the agreement of their author;
  • - suspension and/or termination of accounts due to non-performance of one of the Member's obligations, such as set out in these conditions.

9.2. Member's liability

The Member is liable for use of his Personal Space and his identification information provided for the Portal.

The Member is solely liable for the data required to compile the content that he wishes to put in his dedicated Space. Therefore, the Member is liable for any damage that may arise from posting false or incomplete data and/or documents.

The Member is liable for any damage caused by him to GSM. The Member agrees to indemnify GSM, in the event of a request, claim or order to pay damages, to which GSM is subject due to non-compliance with these provisions or due to damage caused to others or to itself by documents that the Member has posted while using the Portal.

The Member holds GSM harmless against any claim or application from third parties citing infringement of their rights, due to use of the Portal by a Member or due to measures taken by GSM to put an end to the infringement of rights of third parties cited by a victim.

10. Acts of God 

GSM cannot be held liable for any delay in performance of its obligations or for any non-performance of its obligations resulting from these User Conditions when the circumstances giving rise to it are due to force majeure.

The following are expressly considered as cases of force majeure or acts of God, in addition to those usually referred to in case law of the French courts, and in the contractual clauses contained in these Conditions:
Total or partial strike, lock-out, riot, civil disorder, uprising, civil or foreign war, nuclear risk, embargo, confiscation, capture or destruction by any public authority, atmospheric action, epidemic, freezing of means of transport or supply for any reason whatsoever, earthquake, fire, storm, flood, water damage, governmental or legal restrictions, legal or statutory modifications of forms of marketing, freezing of electronic communications, including electronic communication networks, that cannot be foreseen by GSM, challenging the standards of its profession and any other case outside of the control of the parties, preventing normal performance of the obligations arising from these Conditions.  

At first, cases of force majeure will suspend performance of these general Conditions from receipt of a registered letter with acknowledgment of receipt identifying precisely the event in question. If cases of force majeure last for longer than forty-five (45) days, the contractual relationship is terminated automatically, unless an agreement to the contrary is made by the parties.

11. Protection of personal Information 

In accordance with amended Act no. 1.165 of 23 December 1993, the Member can access personal information concerning him that he has entered into the Portal. He can ask for personal information concerning him that is inaccurate, incomplete, ambiguous or out-of-date to be corrected, added to, updated or deleted depending on the case. Any request of this nature can be made by the Member using the form available on his Personal Space or by sending a standard letter to the following address:

Contact Personal information
Equidif SAM - 26bis, Bd Princesse Charlotte - 98000 Monaco

In his request, the Member must provide the following information: last name, first name, date and place of birth, postal and email address and his Username if he wishes to unsubscribe from the GSM site. However, GSM can retain the said data for a term of one year from closing of the account.

To ensure good working order of the Portal, the Member gives his unequivocal consent for use of his personal data collected from the subscription form or from his Personal Space.

13. Termination 

Contractual relations will end in the event of termination of these User Conditions existing between GSM and the Member using the form available on the Portal.

This termination will be as of right without prejudice to damages that the injured party may request.

14. Sub-contracting 

GSM reserves the right to have all or part of the services set out herein performed by any other company of its choice by means of sub-contracting. However, GSM remains solely liable towards the Member on condition that it takes court proceedings against its sub-contractors.

15. Transfer

GSM reserves the right to transfer this contractual relationship to any third party.

16. Non-waiver Clause

Should the Member or GSM overlook any breach by the defaulting party of any of the obligations resulting from these User Conditions as a whole, this should not be interpreted as a waiver of the obligation in question.

17. Continuance Clause

Should any of the clauses of these User Conditions as a whole be confirmed null and void this will not affect the validity of the other clauses; the contract will continue in the absence of the voided clause unless the voided clause makes the continuance of contractual relations impossible or imbalanced compared to the initial agreement.

18. Notification

Any notification required as part of these conditions shall be made to the other party in writing. Notifications must be sent by registered letter with a request for confirmation of receipt, or by any other means whereby receipt can be proven, to the address stated at the start of this document or to any other address that one party subsequently notifies in writing to the other party, in the manner set forth in this Article. A notification will be considered received by a party on the first working day following its first presentation to this party.

19. Complaint

This notification must, on penalty of debarment, precisely detail the errors, absences or delays noted and must be sent within THIRTY (30) days at the latest following occurrence of the event likely to incur GSM's liability.

If a clause contained in a lower ranked document does not expressly appear in a higher ranked document this does not mean that said clause contradicts the higher ranked document or that the related rights and obligations should be abandoned or waived.

22. Updating User Conditions 

These User Conditions can be updated by GSM as developments take place in the services provided, the applicable legal framework and the needs of the Members. GSM has the right to revise and update the General Conditions.

For this purpose, GSM will notify Members of the new version of the User Conditions by drawing their attention to them at the time of their next connection.

Unless the Member expressly objects to the new User Conditions and notifies GSM of this objection within a period of fifteen (15) calendar days from the notification, the new User Conditions will be applied to him from the thirty-first (31st) day, i.e. the day after the expiry date of the period of objection. Once this deadline has expired, the new version of the User Conditions cancels and replaces the preceding one.

Members expressly agree that the applicable User Conditions are those in effect on the day on which the act or matter or law under consideration, cited or claimed has taken place, or is said to have taken place.

23. Article titles

The titles of each Article are given only for ease of comprehension and may in no case be used as the basis for any interpretation or distortion of any of the clauses to which they relate. In the event of any interpretation problems or contradictions between the content of an article and its title, the title shall be disregarded.

The parties expressly agree that this contract shall be governed by the French language. In the event of contradiction between the Conditions drawn up in French and a translation of the User Conditions, the French User Conditions will take precedence over the translated version.

24. Dispute settlements - Jurisdiction

Should no amicable settlement of any dispute relating to the interpretation, creation or performance of these User Conditions taken as a whole be possible, and should they be unable to reach an amicable agreement or a settlement, GSM and the Members grant express and exclusive jurisdiction to the courts of Monaco, regardless of there being multiple defendants, summary proceedings, third-party proceedings or preventive measures.

25. Applicable Law

In the event of any dispute over the interpretation, creation, validity or performance of these User Conditions taken as a whole, GSM and the Members expressly agree that only Monegasque law will be applicable, to the exclusion of any international laws.
