Terms of Use.

Article 1.

Definitions.

For the purpose of these general terms and conditions, the following terms and definitions shall apply: The Internet, or internet network, is a global network combining telecommunication resources and server and client computers, designed for exchanging electronic messages, multimedia information and files. It works by using a common protocol for routing between intermediate systems messages divided into independent packets. The Web, or worldwide web, is an Internet system, divided geographically and structurally, for the publication and consultation of documents using hypertext techniques. Hypertext is a referral system which allows users to navigate directly from one part of a digital document to another, or from one document to other documents, chosen as relevant by the author, by clicking on a link (text or image component), called a hypertext link. FTP (File Transfer Protocol) is a logical protocol used to transfer data on the Internet, designed for downloading files between remote devices. HTML (HyperText Mark-up Language) is a standardised computer language (ISO 8879 standard) used to generate WWW-compatible documents. It allows for sophisticated screen presentations, the insertion of images and above all the presence of hypertext links. The source code thus generated is interpreted by the browser at the time of downloading. HTTP (HyperText Transfer Protocol) is the client-server communication protocol used for data exchanges on the web. IP (Internet Protocol) is the Internet’s routing protocol, which enables data packets (datagrams) to be routed between inter-connected computers. TCP (/IP) or Transmission Control Protocol refers to the series of instructions defining the way in which data packets (datagrams) are routed over the Internet. TCP (/IP) also refers to the language which enables computers connected to the Internet to communicate, including the functionalities for routing data packets in a certain order. The client computer is a client workstation which consults data or requests services located on the server, for example via the Internet. The IP address is a unique numeric address used to identify each computer connected to a network and in particular the Internet (fixed for servers and usually dynamic, that is to say allocated by Internet access providers for each communication, for the client computers that want to access the network). The IP addresses of computers identify them in the network and ensure the correct routing of the data packets exchanged via the network. The browser or navigation software are, in an Internet type environment, software programs that enable users to search for and consult documents, and use the hypertext links in them. The webpage is made up of a coherent set of digital files, different formats, forming texts, still and moving images, specially formatted for the Web so as to be displayed on the monitor of a computer connected to the Internet via navigation software and a multimedia computer and containing hypertext links to other webpages. The website is a set of documents and applications placed under the same authority and accessible via the Internet at the same universal address. A website can be included in a larger website. The access provider is an organisation that provides clients with access to the Internet, or more generally, to any communication network. It is a technical service provider that makes a server that is permanently connected to the internet network available to its subscribers, to enable them to surf the Internet, access websites, exchange electronic messages, participate in discussion groups and download files and, more generally, to exchange data with other computers connected to the Internet. Routing consists in determining the route taken in a network and in particular in the internet network by a communication or a data packet (datagrams). The (file) server is the computer that makes available to a network’s user, and in particular Internet users, files that can be displayed, listened to or downloaded, and in particular the sets of files forming webpages. The domain name is the name, corresponding to the server’s IP address, designating a website on the Internet. It is the body of the URL of the website’s home page, after the prefix designating the protocol (HTTP) and the network (www.). The domain name server is the computer which, after consulting a database, matches the domain names to the digital addresses. The URL or Uniform Resource Locator is the universally unique name that enables a resource or a document to be located on the Internet, and which indicates the method for accessing it, the name of the server and the route within the server [definition based on the official definition published in the JORF]. It is the Internet address used by navigation software. It is the standard addressing system on networks and in particular the Internet of all documents, across all connected computers. The basic structure of an URL is as follows: protocol://server/directory/document.extension. Website hosting consists in making available to the owner of a website, a file server or a given space on a file server, to store the files in various formats making up the website’s pages, limited to a certain volume, measured in megabytes. Email or Electronic mail refers in this agreement to the computerised document that a user enters, sends or consults offline via a network. An email generally contains a text to which other texts, images and/or sounds may be attached.
