4.1 What is a cookie?
This is a text file deposited in a dedicated space on the hard disk of your terminal (computer, tablet, mobile phone or any other Internet-optimised device), when consulting content or advertising online. This cookie file can only be read by its sender. During its period of validity, it enables its sender to recognise the terminal concerned each time this terminal accesses digital content containing Cookies from the same sender. The Cookie does not identify You personally, but only the browser of your terminal.

4.2 What are cookies used for?
Four types of Cookies, meeting the purposes described below, may be recorded in your terminal when you visit the Site:

1. Technical Cookies are necessary for browsing the Site, as well as for accessing the various products and services. In particular, Technical Cookies enable us to recognise You, to indicate that You have visited this or that page and thus to improve your browsing comfort: adapt the presentation of the Site to the display preferences of your device (language used, display resolution), memorise passwords and other information relating to a form that You have filled in on the Site (registration or access to the members’ area). Technical Cookies also enable the implementation of security measures (for example, when You are asked to connect to the members’ area again after a certain period of time). These Cookies cannot be deactivated or parameterised, otherwise You will no longer be able to access the site and/or the site’s services.
2. Audience measurement Cookies are issued by Mind or by our technical service providers for the purpose of measuring the audience of the various Contents and sections of the Site, in order to evaluate and better organise them. These Cookies also make it possible, if necessary, to detect navigation problems and consequently to improve the ergonomics of our services. These Cookies only produce anonymous statistics and traffic volumes, to the exclusion of any individual information. The lifespan of these audience measurement Cookies does not exceed thirteen (13) months.
3. Advertising cookies: The services offered by Mind on the Site are accessible by subscription and/or via payment of Credits, the Site does not contain any tags or advertising platforms.
In general, advertising Cookies are issued by partners who are responsible for the advertising spaces on the Site, the use of these spaces contributing to the financing of the Content and services that we make available to you free of charge.
4. Social Networking Cookies allow us to share Content on our Site with others or to let others know about your consultation or opinion of Content on the Site. This is, in particular, the case of the “share”, “like” buttons, from social networks such as “facebook” or “twitter”. The social network providing such an application button is likely to identify You thanks to this button, even if You did not use it when consulting our Site. Mind invites You to consult the privacy protection policies of these social networks in order to be aware of the purposes of use, in particular advertising, of the browsing information they may collect through these application buttons. The lifetime of these Cookies does not exceed thirteen (13) months.

On the Site, the Cookies are deposited by Google Analytics. If You do not want our site to save Cookies in your browser for audience measurement purposes, You can follow the following procedure: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/181881?hl=fr.
Please note that these Cookies enable us to measure the traffic or audience associated with our Site, the pages visited and the interactions carried out on the Site during your visit. Deactivating them therefore prevents any collection of information relating to your browsing on our Site and therefore the proposal of editorial content adapted to your browsing.

4.3.3 Refuse an Advertising Cookie
You can manage the use and exploitation of these Cookies by going to the advertising Cookie management platform proposed by advertising professionals: http://www.youronlinechoices.com/fr/controler-ses-cookies/ and following the instructions given there.

4.3.4 Refusing a Cookie from a social network
If You do not wish the Site to save Cookies in your browser for this purpose, You can click on the following deactivation links which will save a Cookie in your browser with the sole purpose of neutralising the use of other Cookies from the same sender. Deactivating these Cookies will therefore prevent any interaction with the social network(s) concerned:
⦁ Facebook: https:⦁ //www.facebook.com/help/360595310676682/
⦁ Twitter: https:⦁ //support.twitter.com/articles/20171379-twitter-prend-en-charge-la-desactivation-du-suivi-dnt#

⦁ Youtube: https:⦁ //support.google.com/accounts/answer/61416?hl=fr
Please note that the consideration of your different wishes is based on one or more specific cookies. If You delete all the Cookies registered within your terminal relating to the Site, we will no longer know which consent or refusal You have given. This will therefore be tantamount to resetting your consent and You will therefore once again have to refuse the Cookie(s) that You do not wish to keep. Similarly, if You use another Internet browser, You will again have to refuse these Cookies because your choices, like the Cookies to which they relate, depend on the browser and the terminal (computer, tablet, smartphone, etc.) that You use to consult our Site.

In order to register on the Site, the User must fill in the fields on the registration form with complete and accurate data. The data that must be communicated to Mind is identified as such when the User registers.

Article 8 – Warranty – Liability

Any guarantee is expressly excluded by Mind with regard to Users.
Mind does not guarantee the absence of bugs and consequently does not guarantee that the use of the Site will be uninterrupted and error-free. In particular, the User acknowledges that transmissions over the Internet are not secure and may be delayed, lost, intercepted, corrupted and that the transmission of confidential information via the Internet is carried out by the User at his/her own risk.
Mind cannot guarantee to the User that the Site will exactly meet his expectations or that no error will appear during the use of the Site. Mind does not guarantee (i) the reliability and accuracy of the Content appearing on the Site and (ii) the suitability of the Site for the User’s specific expectations and uses.
The Content offered by Mind may contain hypertext links inviting Users to consult third party sites. The third parties who propose the contents accessible via these external links are solely responsible for any consequences that may result from the distribution of said contents. Furthermore, such third party content may be subject to specific rules defined by their publisher (e.g. general conditions of use, legal notices, privacy policy), to which You must refer (and which You must accept if necessary), without Mind’s liability being sought as a result.
If a pecuniary condemnation should be pronounced against Mind for any reason whatsoever, the Parties expressly agree that the total amount of the condemnations which could be pronounced against Mind cannot exceed the amount of the last purchase of Credits preceding the occurrence of the damaging element, which the Parties agree to consider as a fair compensation with regard to their respective commitments under the terms of the General Terms and Conditions.
In any event, the User can only hold Mind liable for a breach of the General Conditions for a period of one (1) year from the occurrence of the breach in question, which the User expressly acknowledges and accepts.

Article 9 – Miscellaneous Stipulation

9.1 Modification of the General Terms and Conditions
Mind reserves the right to make any changes to these general conditions that it deems necessary and useful.
In the event of a modification to the General Conditions, Mind undertakes to make the User accept the new General Conditions again when the User accesses the Site again.
They will also be accessible by the User in his personal account as well as on the Site.
Access to the Site will be refused to the User who has not expressly accepted the new General Conditions.

9.2 Force Majeure
Neither Party may be held liable in the event that the performance of its obligations is delayed, restricted or rendered impossible by the occurrence of an event beyond the control of each Party, which could not reasonably have been foreseen at the time of the conclusion of the contract and the effects of which cannot be avoided by appropriate measures (hereinafter “Force Majeure”).
In particular, the following events are considered as Force Majeure, without this list being exhaustive: war (declared or not); terrorist acts; invasion; rebellion; blockade; sabotage or vandalism; strike or social conflict, total or partial, external to each of the Parties; bad weather (in particular floods, storms and storms); event declared a “natural disaster”; fire; epidemic; blockage of means of transport or supply (in particular energy); failure in the supply of electrical energy, heating, air conditioning, telecommunications networks, data transport; failure of satellites.
If the impediment is temporary, performance of the obligation shall be suspended unless the resulting delay justifies termination of the contract.
If the impediment is definitive, the contract is terminated by operation of law and the Parties are released from their obligations under the conditions provided for in Articles 1351 and 1351-1 of the Civil Code.

9.3 Disclaimer
The fact that one or other of the Parties does not exercise any of its rights hereunder shall not constitute a waiver by it of its exercise, such waiver being conditional upon an express declaration by the Party concerned.

9.4 Evidence Convention
The computerised registers will be kept in Mind’s computer systems under reasonable security conditions and will be considered as proof of exchanges, orders and payments made on the Site or by e-mail.

9.5 Partial disability
In the event that one or more stipulations of the General Terms and Conditions are considered invalid by a competent court, the other clauses will retain their scope and effect.
The stipulation considered invalid will be replaced by a stipulation whose meaning and scope will be as close as possible to the clause thus invalidated, while remaining in conformity with the applicable legislation and the common intention of the Parties.

Article 10 – Applicable law – Jurisdiction

The General Conditions are governed by French law.
The Parties expressly agree to submit any dispute relating to the General Terms and Conditions (including any dispute concerning their conclusion, performance, termination and/or cessation) and/or the commercial relations between the Parties, as well as their possible termination, to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Courts of Paris, notwithstanding plurality of defendants or third party proceedings, including proceedings on application or summary proceedings.
