ARTICLE 3. OBLIGATIONS ON THE PARTIES

3.1- Pitchy’s Obligations

Pitchy undertakes to provide the Client with the Services in accordance with the Agreement.

Pitchy remains entirely in control of its work methods, tools, know-how and implementation procedures, evolving in accordance with standard practice in compliance with the legal environment of the Service.

Pitchy shall use the premises and equipment of its choice for hosting its solutions. In addition, Pitchy shall freely determine the human resource levels necessary for providing the Services.

Any changes that Pitchy may make to the provision of the Services as regards the implemented techniques, work methods, tools, know-how and/or implementation procedures shall not compromise the provision of the Services to the Client.

Pitchy may update the Services at any time, which may include different or new functions, which  the Client acknowledges and accepts.

It shall bear all the consequences of unauthorised third-party access to the Services (Pitchy Services consumption price, unauthorised use etc).

The Client therefore has sole responsibility for the use of its account. Any connection or data transmission carried out using the Client's account shall be deemed to have been made by it and entirely at its own risk. It is also specified that the Client has full and exclusive responsibility for use of the Services by any third party who has accessed by keying in the Client's access code.

When completing the list of Users, the Client undertakes to communicate only information that is exact, up to date and complete.

The Client also undertakes to inform Pitchy immediately in writing (including e-mail) if any of its Users ceases to be a member of its personnel or of its assistant firms authorised to benefit from the Services, and likewise when and/or if new persons are given that capacity (especially in the event of extension of licence or arrival of these persons in place of other persons previously nominated as User).

The Client alone shall be responsible for proper function of the Users' computer and/or telephone equipment and for their Internet access.

Immediately on signing the Agreement, the Client shall appoint a single contact person, competent and authorised by the Client, to represent the Client before Pitchy.

The Client must take account of the fact that Pitchy may not know everything about its organisations and work practices. Any ambiguity or inaccuracy must be reported in writing to Pitchy by the Client, as soon as it becomes aware of it.

The Client undertakes to inform Pitchy of any change likely to alter the conditions for provision of the Services.

ARTICLE 4. CONTRACTUAL DOCUMENTS

  1. The Agreement expresses the full range of the Parties' obligations with regard to its subject. It cancels and replaces all previous documents and agreements concluded between the Parties. In the event of discrepancy between the contractual documents, the Specific Conditions shall prevail over the General Conditions.
  2. The Agreement shall prevail automatically over all the conditions shown in the documents issued by the Client, especially in its own general and specific conditions of purchase. In no event shall the substitution by the Client of its own Terms and Conditions of purchase to these Terms and Conditions may be enforceable against Pitchy, including when Pitchy has already given access to the Services to the Client, unless Pitchy has expressly agreed to these Purchase T&Cs in writing, stating “agreed and signed, consent to the Client’s Purchase T&Cs”.
  3. In the event of inconsistency with a previous version of these General Conditions, only the version in force on the date of the Agreement shall apply.
  4. The information and business documents relating to Pitchy's Services are outside the scope of the contract and have no binding capacity.
  5. Alteration to the Agreement on the Client's initiative

The Client may freely and at any time alter its License or Service Offer by taking out a range of Services at a price higher than that paid on signature of the Agreement. 

This change shall be reflected in an Amendment to the Agreement.

In contrast, any change to a range of Services with a price lower than that taken out may only be made when each Contractual renewal date comes around, provided a written request is sent by RLAR to Pitchy's Client Service, at least two (2) months before the Agreement renewal date.

ARTICLE 5. ENTRY INTO FORCE, DURATION, TERMINATION

  1. The Contrat shall be concluded and enter into force upon written acceptance (including by email) of the Quote by the Client or upon signature of a Agreement. Pitchy reserves the right to condition the provision of the Services to the provision by the Client of the following documents :
  • The Quote signed by the Client ;
  • The Agreement signed by the Client as the case may be ;
  • Certificate of incorporation issued less than 3 months ago ;
  • The list of Users including their first and last names, department within the company and professional e-mail address.

  1. Unless otherwise agreed in writing, Pitchy provides the Services as an periodical subscription for the period of time agreed upon between the Parties as stated in the Quote, with tacit renewal at the end of each term for an identical period of time, whatever the nature of the Services. Therefore and for the avoidance of doubt, when the Services consist in the production of a defined number of Specimens by Pitchy on the initial commitment duration (the “Initial Term”) the Agreement is renewed for the same duration and the same number of Specimens.

At the end of the Initial Term, the Agreement shall be renewed tacitly for successive periods of a duration identical to that of the Initial Term (a “Renewal Term”), unless either Party notifies the other of its termination on the end of the current Term by registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt at least two (2) months before the Agreement renewal date.

  1. The Agreement may be terminated automatically by Pitchy at any time, without notice and without the Client being able to claim any compensation, if the Client and/or any one of the Users makes fraudulent use of the Services or Service access codes in any way (most notably by allowing persons not appointed as Users to use the Services), if the Client is subjected to enforced legal recovery during which the receiver does not issue an authorisation for the Client to continue in accordance with applicable law, or if the Client goes into liquidation.

In the situations mentioned in Article 10, and when the reason for the suspension does not disappear, the Agreement may be terminated automatically by Pitchy from the tenth day following suspension of Pitchy's services, without the Client being able to claim any form of compensation.

  1. Without prejudice to the provisions of this article or of article 10, if the Client fails to fulfil any one of its obligations under the Agreement, Pitchy shall be authorised, thirty (30) days after a demand is sent by registered letter with advice of receipt advising its intention to make use of the present clause and that demand has still not borne fruit, or immediately in the event of any irrevocable failure, to terminate the Agreement officially, fully or in part, by simply sending a registered letter with advice of receipt, notwithstanding the right to demand compensation for damages suffered.
  2. If the Agreement is terminated, and without prejudice to the damages that Pitchy may claim, the sums owed by the Client under the Agreement shall become payable immediately and in full, including the total that would have been due to Pitchy had the contract run to its initially agreed term.

ARTICLE 6. FINANCIAL CONDITIONS

  1. The Service prices are those applicable in Pitchy when the Agreement enters into force. Unless otherwise stated in writing, they are expressed, in the Quote, as a lump sum annual amount.
  2. Prices are revised annually and automatically on the anniversary date of entry into force of the Agreement based on the evolution of the latest public revised Syntex Index, as per the following formula:

P1 = P0 x S1/S0

where :

• P1 = revised price

• P0 = initial price or last revised price

• S0 = latest Syntec Index as published on the date of the latest revision or initial Index (as published on the date of signature of the Agreement) 

• S1 = latest SYNTEC Index published on the date of the revision.

  1. The sums due from the Client include:
  2. Implementation costs.
  3. The Licence and the options relating to each Service subscribed to.

For the calculation of the total amounts due by the Client as per the Agreement, the provisions stated on the Quote shall prevail on any other source and in case of litigation, except in the case where the Client would evidence a dysfunction of Pitchy’s follow-up system.

All prices mentioned are expressed excluding taxes. Taxes shall be payable by the Client and applied in accordance with legislation in force on the date of invoicing.

All costs and expenses relating to equipment and communication , inter alia, needed in relation to connection and access to and use of the Solution, and any authorisation required in relation thereto, are and shall remain born by the Client.

  1. Payment 

Payment shall be made by wire transfer on the bank account specified by Pitchy upon receipt of the invoice. To this end, Pitchy will provide the Client with statement of bank details showing its BIC and IBAN, or SWIFT details whenever necessary.

The annual price for the Services and Licence is payable in one instalment and invoiced upon signature of the Agreement and on the anniversary date for the whole duration of the Agreement.

Any one-shot purchase of a Specimen is invoiced on the date of signature of the Agreement.

If an invoice falling due is paid late, and in accordance with the terms of article L41-10 of the French commercial Code, interests a a rate of three times the French legal interest rate shall automatically apply as from the first date after the due date, as well as a lump sum recovery indemnity of 40€ (forty euros), notwithstanding the full indemnification by the Client of the additional costs that may be incurred by Pitchy.

In the event of default on payment, Pitchy reserves the right to suspend the Agreement automatically without prior notice.

  1. Claims

Any private claim concerning the elements of an invoice must be submitted to Pitchy within ten (10) days from the date of issuance of the relevant invoice. A claim will not exempt the Client from payment of the disputed invoice.

In the event of a claim, Pitchy shall conduct an inquiry. Any correction following the inquiry shall be settled as soon as possible.

ARTICLE 7. LIABILITY AND INSURANCE

  • Damages that could have been avoided had the Client exercised reasonable diligence to that end.

  • Damages attributable to third parties, especially service providers playing a direct or indirect part in the provision of the Services.

9.2.6. Responsibility for clients' treatment and rights

The head of treatments is PITCHY BROS PROD, a one-man simplified share company with a share capital of 1,742.93 euros, registered with the RCS of PARIS under the number 799 416 011, headquartered at 46 Niel Avenue - 75017 PARIS.

In accordance with the RGPD, the Law 78-17 of 6 January 1978 relating to computer science, files and freedoms amended and any new law, decrees taken for its application such as the Digital Republic Act No. 2016-1321 of October 7, 2016, the User can:

- Access all of its data: this right allows the User to ask PITCHY questions about the nature of the treatments concerning him and to request a copy of all the information about him. This right applies regardless of the legal basis of treatment (contract, legal obligation, consent, legitimate interest, etc.).

- opposing the processing of its data: it is the right not to be included in a data processing or to no longer be included in it. This right applies where the treatment is based on PITCHY’s "legitimate interest";

- correct, update, complete and delete declarative data;

- Ask for the portability of its data

- request a limitation of PITCHY's treatment of its Data: this right can be extended when one of the following reasons applies:

● The accuracy of personal data is disputed by the person concerned, for a period of time allowing the processing manager to verify the accuracy of personal data;

● treatment is illegal and the person concerned opposes their erasure and instead demands that their use be limited;

● the person in charge of the processing no longer needs the personal data for processing purposes, but it is still necessary for the person concerned to find, exercise or defend rights in court;

● the person concerned objected to the treatment during the audit on whether the legitimate reasons pursued by the person responsible for the treatment outweighed those of the person concerned.

In addition, the User has the opportunity to provide PITCHY with guidelines on the retention, erasure and disclosure of his Personal Data after his death, which can also be registered with "a certified digital trusted third party. These guidelines, or a kind of "digital will," may designate a person responsible for their execution; failing that, his heirs will be appointed.

In the absence of any direction, the User's heirs can contact PITCHY to:

- Access to treatments that allow "the organization and settlement of the deceased's estate";

- receive communication of "digital goods" or "data akin to family memories, transmitted to heirs";

- closing the client's account and objecting to the continued processing of his Personal Information.

To exercise his rights, the client can apply (by stating e-mail address, name, first name, postal address and a copy of his ID):

- E-mail: contact@pitchy.fr

- By mail at 157 boulevard McDonald, 75019 Paris

A response will be sent within one (1) month of the date the application is received.

The Client can make a complaint to the relevant supervisory authority at any time (in France, the CNIL: www.cnil.fr))

However, it is specified that Pitchy may, at its discretion, provide Pitchy Software updates and new versions, without this constituting an obligation.

The temporary provision of Pitchy Software under the conditions provided for in this Agreement cannot be deemed as the transfer of any intellectual property right to the Client, within the meaning of the French Intellectual Property Code.

Subject to the provisions of Article L.122-6-1 of the French Intellectual Property Code and any stipulation contrary to this Agreement, the Client strictly prohibits, whether directly or indirectly and not limited to, any reproduction, adaptation, alteration, representation, modification, translation, arrangement, dissemination, decompilation, provision to third parties, marketing, transcription, or use for the purposes of the design, production, dissemination or marketing of software that is the equivalent or replacement of any or part of the Pitchy Software without Pitchy's express written and prior consent.

  1. Third Party Software

Whatever the provisions of the documents supporting the Third-Party Software, the rights granted to the Client on the Third-Party Software consist of a simple license agreement.

The said License Agreement is restricted solely to the right to use the said software as part of the Services and solely for the duration of the Agreement. The Client is informed that any other form of use is likely to incur its liability to third-party software publishers and/or their beneficiaries.

In the event of a claim and/or action for infringement brought against Pitchy, its beneficiaries, distributors, agents, licensees and having originated in the use of the Third-Party Software by the Client, Pitchy will inform the Client without delay. If the claim or action for infringement originates from the Client’s failure to perform its contractual obligations under this Agreement and if it has promptly received notification of this claim and obtained the mandate to defend and pursue the claim, it will take responsibility for the defence of Pitchy, in cooperation with the latter, the Client will defend Pitchy, his beneficiaries, distributors, agents, licensees and bear all costs (including legal fees and costs) to pursue the action, as well as any damages awarded to the third party.

However, the Client's liability is expressly excluded if the infringement or the origin of the claim results directly from the elements provided by Pitchy or changes made by the latter to the Third-Party Software.

  1. Infringement

Pitchy warrants and undertakes to indemnify the Client against any action for infringement, for unfair competition, complaint, dispute or claim by a third party brought against the Client in connection with the Solution and in particular with respect to the property rights related to the Solution which are granted by Pitchy under the Agreement.

Accordingly, if Pitchy has been promptly notified of this claim and obtained the mandate to defend and pursue the action, it will take responsibility for the defence of the Client, in cooperation with it. To this end, Pitchy will pay all the costs of proceedings, the fees of experts, bailiffs, solicitors and barristers, all damages for which the Client may be sentenced by a court order based on one of the actions or claims referred to in the preceding paragraph and, more generally, all damages caused to the Client as a result of the infringement action.

The Client is and remains the sole owner or duly authorised owner of all content, data, files and information of any nature whatsoever that it transmits to Pitchy, either directly or via any of the Websites under this Agreement.

However, the Client grants to Pitchy and any third party, chosen by Pitchy and that Pitchy would replace for the performance of its obligations under the Agreement, a temporary and non-exclusive right to use such content, files, data and information solely for the needs strictly necessary for the performance of the Services.

To this end, Pitchy acknowledges that the communication of elements by the Client does not in any way constitute a transfer of ownership of said elements for any reason whatsoever and that the elements transmitted can only be used for the requirements and performance of the Agreement, with the prior written consent of the Client.

In addition, the archives and documents published by Pitchy as part of the Services by means of the data transmitted by the Client shall be the exclusive property of the Client.

It is therefore the Client’s responsibility to ensure that the files and documents transmitted to Pitchy do not contain information likely to infringe the rights of a third party, to violate the rules of public order or that are contrary to good morals.

Accordingly, the Client agrees to defend Pitchy and to assume liability for and/or indemnify Pitchy for any damages that may result from any action or claim by a third party relating to the possession and/or use by Pitchy of any content, files, data and information provided to it by the Client, in any form and in any manner whatsoever, under the Agreement.

Pitchy grants the Client, in compensation for and as from the complete payment of the agreed price, all intellectual property rights on the videos produced with the Services by the Client in compliance with the terms of the Agreement for their free and personal exploitation, broadcasting, representation and use for professional needs to the exclusion of any other need, for the whole world and for the whole legal duration of these rights.
