SYSTRAN Terms of Service

Last Updated: August 2, 2011

1. Terms of the legal agreement with SYSTRAN

1.1 Your use of any of SYSTRAN’s products, software, services and/or web sites (referred to collectively as the “Services”, each one being referred to as a “Service”, in this document and excluding any services provided to you by SYSTRAN under a separate written agreement) is subject to the terms of a legal agreement between you and SYSTRAN. “SYSTRAN” means SYSTRAN S.A., a French société anonyme registered under the unique identification number RCS Paris 334 343 993, whose registered office is at 5 rue Feydeau – 75002 Paris – FRANCE.

This document explains how the above-mentioned legal agreement is made up, and sets out some of the terms of such agreement.

1.2 Unless otherwise agreed in writing with SYSTRAN, your agreement with SYSTRAN will always include, at a minimum, the terms and conditions set out in this document (referred to below as the “General Terms”).

1.3 Your agreement with SYSTRAN may also include the terms of any specific terms applicable to certain Services, in addition to the General Terms. The relevant specific terms are referred to below as the “Supplemental Terms”. Where Supplemental Terms apply to a Service, these will be accessible for you to read either within, or through your use of, that Service.

1.4 The General Terms, together with the relevant Supplemental Terms, as may be applicable, form a legally binding agreement between you and SYSTRAN in relation to your use of the Services, referred to below as the “Terms”. It is important that you take the time to read them carefully.

1.5 In the event of any contradiction between the provisions of the Supplemental Terms and those of the General Terms, the Supplemental Terms shall always prevail in relation to the relevant Service.

2. Acceptance of the Terms

2.1 You may not use the Services unless you first accept to be bound by the Terms.

2.2 You can accept the Terms by:

  • (A) clicking to accept or agree to the Terms, where this option is made available to you by SYSTRAN in the user interface for any Service; or
  • (B) by your actual use of the Services. In this case, you acknowledge and accept that the Terms will apply to each of your uses of the Services from the moment you start using the Services.

2.3 Your acceptance of the Terms shall be deemed an unconditional agreement to be bound by each provision of the Terms, without any exceptions or qualifications whatsoever from you. If you do not agree to all of the provisions of the Terms, do not access or use the Services.

2.4 You may not use the Services and may not accept the Terms if (a) you are not of legal age to form a binding contract with SYSTRAN, (b) you are a person barred from receiving the Services under the laws of France or other countries including the country in which you are resident or from which you use the Services, or (c) for purposes contrary to public order and morality.

2.5 Before you continue, you should print off or save a local copy of the General Terms for your records.

3. Modification of the Terms by SYSTRAN

3.1 Any of the General Terms or Supplemental Terms may be amended by SYSTRAN from time to time without prior notice to you. The amended Terms will apply between SYSTRAN and yourself with effect from the moment when such amendment to the General Terms is made available here, and in the case of Supplemental Terms, from the moment when such amendment is made available within, or through, the relevant Services, without any need for any other formality. SYSTRAN therefore invites you to consult the Terms on a regular basis.

3.2 You understand and agree that your use of the Services after the General Terms or Supplemental Terms, as the case may be, have been changed, will be deemed acceptance of such updated General Terms or Supplemental Terms.

4. Language

4.1 If you use the Services from a country other than France, you acknowledge and agree that any translation from the English language versions of the Terms is provided to you by SYSTRAN for your information only and that the English language versions of the Terms will be the only binding versions which will govern your relationship with SYSTRAN. In the event of any contradiction between the terms of the English language version of the Terms and the terms of a translation of the Terms, the English language version shall prevail.

4.2 If you use the Services from France, you acknowledge and agree that any translation from the French language versions of the Terms is provided to you by SYSTRAN for your information only and that the French language versions of the Terms will be the only binding versions which will govern your relationship with SYSTRAN. In the event of any contradiction between the terms of the French language version of the Terms and the terms of a translation of the Terms, the French language version shall prevail.

5. Provision of the Services by SYSTRAN

5.1 You acknowledge and agree that the Services may be provided to you on behalf of SYSTRAN by SYSTRAN’s foreign subsidiaries and affiliated legal entities (“Subsidiaries and Affiliates”) in accordance with the Terms.

5.2 You acknowledge and agree that SYSTRAN may change from time to time without prior notice to you the form and nature of the Services at its sole discretion, as a result of SYSTRAN’s improvement, enhancement and further development of the Services.

5.3 You acknowledge and agree that SYSTRAN may stop (permanently or temporarily) providing the Services (or any features within the Services) to you or to users generally at SYSTRAN’s sole discretion, without prior notice to you. You may stop using the Services at any time. You do not need to specifically inform SYSTRAN when you stop using the Services, unless you wish to terminate your legal agreement with SYSTRAN, in which case, the provisions of clause 15 shall apply.

5.4 You acknowledge and agree that SYSTRAN may disable access to your account which will prevent you from accessing some or all of the Services, your account details or any files or other content which is contained in your account.

5.5 You acknowledge and agree that SYSTRAN may in its sole discretion decide to set or change a fixed upper limit on the number of transmissions you may send or receive through the Services or on the amount of storage space used for the provision of any Service.

5.6 SYSTRAN may interrupt, without notice, access to all or part of the Services, without any liability to you, in order to permit maintenance operations to be carried out and/or for development necessary for the proper functioning of the Services and for the improvement of the Services.

10.1 In consideration of SYSTRAN granting you access to and use of the Services, you agree that SYSTRAN may place advertisements and promotions in the Services (“Advertisements”).You agree that the manner, mode and extent of the Advertisements can be changed without prior notice to you.

10.2 Some information to which you may have access as part of, or through your use of, the Services, other than by actual performance of the Services, is the sole responsibility of the person from which such content originated. All such information, including but not limited to the Advertisements is referred to below as the “Content”.

10.3 You hereby acknowledge that Content presented to you as part of the Services may be protected by intellectual property rights which are owned by the persons who provide that Content to SYSTRAN, including but not limited to the sponsors or advertisers (or by other persons or companies on their behalf). Accordingly, any full or partial use, representation, reproduction, modification, renting, lease, loan, sale, distribution or creation of derivative works based on this Content by any procedure whatsoever and in any medium whatsoever shall constitute an infringement of such intellectual property rights, unless you have been granted specific authorisation to do so by the owners of that Content in a separate agreement.

10.4 SYSTRAN shall have the right, but no obligation to monitor and/or review, flag, filter, modify, refuse to post or remove, in whole or in part, the Content of any Service.

11. Proprietary rights of SYSTRAN and its licensors

11.1 SYSTRAN (or each SYSTRAN’s licensors) owns and/or has legal authority to all legal rights, title and interest in and to the Services, including any intellectual property rights which subsist in the Services (whether those rights happen to be registered or not, and wherever in the world those rights may exist). You acknowledge and agree that the Services may contain information which is designated confidential by SYSTRAN and you undertake that you shall not disclose such information without SYSTRAN’s prior written consent.

11.2 The Terms strictly forbid you to use, represent, reproduce, whether in all or in part, any of SYSTRAN’s trade names, trade marks, service marks, logos, domain names, and other distinctive brand features, and consequently, any such use, representation or reproduction by any means or in any form whatsoever of all or part, whether or not qualitatively or quantitatively substantial, without the prior written authorisation by SYSTRAN shall constitute inter alia an infringement of such intellectual property rights. In particular and without limitation, SYSTRAN prohibits the use of the SYSTRAN logo as a “hot” link to any Services for commercial purposes unless the establishment of such a link is approved by SYSTRAN.

11.3 Subject to the obtention of a prior written authorisation from SYSTRAN to use any of its trade names, trade marks, service marks, logos, domain names, and other distinctive brand features, you undertake, when using the same, to comply strictly with the terms of such authorisation and any applicable provisions of the Terms.

11.4 You undertake not to remove and to keep intact any proprietary rights notices (including copyright and trade mark notices) which may be affixed to or appear within the Services.

11.5 Other than the limited license set forth in clause 13 below, SYSTRAN shall obtain no right, title or interest from you (or your licensors) under the Terms in or to any of your Contributions (as such term is defined in clause 13 below), including any intellectual property rights which subsist in that Contribution (whether those rights happen to be registered or not, and wherever in the world those rights may exist). Unless you have agreed otherwise in writing with SYSTRAN, you agree that you are responsible for protecting and enforcing those rights and that SYSTRAN has no obligation to do so on your behalf.

11.6 Unless you have been granted a prior specific written authorisation by SYSTRAN, you undertake in your use of the Services not to use any trade mark, service mark, trade name, logo of any company or organization in a way that is likely or intended to cause confusion about the owner or authorized user of such marks, names or logos.

13.3 The Services are not intended to process any confidential information which you may submit.

15.4 This clause is without prejudice of SYSTRAN’s rights regarding provision of Services under clause 5 of the Terms.

15.5 The termination of the Terms shall not extend to those legal rights, obligations and liabilities, and in particular, without limitation, pursuant to clauses 11 and 13, which continue indefinitely, whether or not expressly stated as such, and which shall continue unaffected, and the provisions of clause 18.8 shall continue to apply to such rights, obligations and liabilities indefinitely.

IN SUCH EVENT, YOU AGREE TO COOPERATE WITH SYSTRAN’S DEFENCE OF SUCH CLAIM.

18. Miscellaneous

18.1 The Terms shall govern only your relationship with SYSTRAN, and its Subsidiaries and Affiliates, to the exclusion of any relationship which you may enter into incidentally with any other person or company as a result of, or through your use of the Services, when using a service or downloading software, or purchasing goods, provided by such person or company.

18.2 The Terms constitute the entire legal agreement between you and SYSTRAN. These General Terms replace any prior General Terms entered into between you and SYSTRAN in relation to the Services, but shall in no way affect the validity of any Supplemental Terms pre-existing these General Terms.

18.3 Any notices by SYSTRAN in connection to the Services may be provided to you either by email, regular mail, or postings on the Services.

18.4 No failure to exercise, nor any delay in exercising, on the part of SYSTRAN, any right or remedy under the Terms or under any applicable law, shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any right or remedy prevent any further or future exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right or remedy. The rights and remedies of SYSTRAN provided for by the Terms are cumulative and not exclusive of any rights or remedies provided by law.

18.5 If, at any time, any provision of the Terms is or becomes illegal, invalid or unenforceable in any respect pursuant to any law of any jurisdiction, neither the legality, validity or enforceability of the remaining provisions nor the legality, validity or enforceability of such provision under the law of any other jurisdiction will in any way be affected or impaired.

18.6 You acknowledge and agree that the Terms shall benefit the Subsidiaries and Affiliates and that they shall be entitled to directly enforce, and rely upon, any provision of the Terms which confers a benefit on (or rights in favour of) them. Other than by virtue of this provision, no other person or company shall be third party beneficiaries of the Terms.

18.7 The Terms, and your relationship with SYSTRAN under the Terms, shall be governed by and construed in accordance with French law.

18.8 The competent courts within the jurisdiction of the Court of Appeal of Paris, France, shall have exclusive jurisdiction to settle any dispute arising out of or in connection with the Terms (a “Dispute”).You agree that the competent courts within the jurisdiction of the Court of Appeal of Paris, France are the most appropriate and convenient courts to settle Disputes and accordingly you will not seek to argue to the contrary. Notwithstanding the above provisions, which are for the benefit of SYSTRAN only, SYSTRAN shall not be prevented from taking proceedings relating to a Dispute in any other courts with jurisdiction.
