CONTENTS OF CIGRE SITE
The information provided on our site is given for guidance purposes. We cannot guarantee the wholeness, exactitude, completeness and topicality of the information published on the site. It does not exempt our Members and non-Members from seeking an additional and relevant analysis.
Consequently, the user agrees that use made of this information is his sole responsibility. CIGRE could not be held responsible for the direct or indirect prejudice, which could result from access or use of the www.cigre.org gate and other gates for our National Committees, Study Committees and other CIGRE groups, including the inaccessibility, the loss of data, presence of viruses on the site, and other possible problems…
The user is required to comply with the provisions of French law relating to data processing, to files and to licenses, indicated above, infringement of which is liable to sanctions. In particular, as regards personal information, which may be accessed, the user must abstain from collecting data, from any diverted use, and generally, from any act likely to be prejudicial to the privacy or reputation of individuals.
The CIGRE marks and logos are registered trademarks. Any reproduction and total or partial representation, separately or integrated into other elements, without any prior and expressly written authorization from CIGRE, or from the CIGRE National committees concerned, are strictly forbidden.
Any holder of a CIGRE publication, on paper or electronic format, has only a right of use. The following are prohibited without express agreement from CIGE: total or partial reproduction of the document, other than for personal and private use; making the document available to any third party, which covers circulation on an intranet or corporate network.
“CIGRE does not give any guarantee or insurance on the contents of this publication, and also declines responsibility, as for the exactitude or the exhaustiveness of information. All the implicit guarantees and conditions are excluded to the extent permitted by the law”.
www.cigre.org Gate: all contents, programs, texts, technical documentation, illustrations, photographs and videos, animations, databases, and in general all information on our CIGRE gates are the property of CIGRE or are subject to a right of use or exploitation. These elements are covered by legislation protecting copyright.
Any representation, modification, reproduction, total or partial distortion of the site or of its contents, in any way whatsoever, would constitute a counterfeit sanctioned by the L335-2 articles and following of the Code of Intellectual property.
You cannot set up a hyperlink to the CIGRE Gate without prior express authorization from CIGRE. Requests must be forwarded to the address indicated under Chapter: LEGAL INFORMATION.
Databases: CIGRE formally prohibits any use, reproduction or extraction of elements from its databases. The re-use, reproduction or extraction, not authorized by CIGRE would be ground for liability on the part of the user.
Should you would wish to use some part of the contents of the CIGRE sites, or a document, text, mark, logo, program, illustration or any other CIGRE elements, you must obtain a prior expressly written authorization from CIGRE, by writing to the address indicated under Chapter: LEGAL INFORMATION.
MANAGEMENT OF PASSWORDS AND ACCESS CODES FOR THE CIGRE GATE
Some interactive services on CIGRE gates require an identifier and a password, which are provided by our services.
These passwords and access codes are confidential, personal, inalienable and not transferable. You are responsible for their management, conservation, and for the consequences resulting from their use. It is your responsibility to ensure their protection. CIGRE will in no way be held responsible for any fraudulent use.
The 2 official languages of CIGRE are statutorily French and English.
CIGRE being a French Association, in case of litigation, the applicable law is FRENCH LAW, and CIGRE French official texts in French language will prevail.
Taking into account our status as a nonprofit making Association , see Chapter LEGAL INFORMATION above, CIGRE is not subject to VAT. The invoices, which we issue, show a VAT line as 0%. European members of CIGRE and non-members must thus pay VAT at the rate applicable in their country on the sums invoiced by CIGRE; they will later recover this VAT according to recoverable VAT. This will nullify the VAT operation, i.e. VAT equal to zero.
