The Internet application form consists of set parameters, concerning the information which cannot be modified by the USER directly online after an electronic validation and the modifiable parameters, concerning the information that the USER has the right to modify online at any time.
The electronic validation of the Advertisement by the USER results in it being taken into account immediately and its publication by MAgic Event. MAgic Event will not intervene with the content of the advertisement in any way.
The USER acknowledges that the provision of service will start immediately after its electronic validation, without MAgic Event exercising any control or any previous validation on the content of the Advertisement placed on THE WEBSITE or on the possible, subsequent modification of the modifiable parameters of this by the USER. Therefore, and by the implementation of clause L. 121-20-2 paragraph 1 of the French Consumer Code, the USER, in the case where he is considered a consumer, exercises no right of withdrawal which he/she expressly acknowledges.
The Advertisements and modifications of the Advertisements are transcribed by the MAgic Event services after the SUPPLIER MEMBER'S declaration appearing on the FACT SHEET which he/she previously completed and validated online, without MAgic Event exercising any control or any previous validation of placing an Advertisement online on the content of that form.
The USER is solely responsible for the accuracy of the information which he/she provided in the form which he/she previously validated by MAgic Event placing the advertisement on the website.
Therefore, the USER must verify the accuracy and fairness of the information posted on the Advertisement since it first went online and inform MAgic Event of all inconsistencies with the leased property and/or the information which he/she issued in the Internet form.
For each Advertisement, the USER describes the LEASED PROPERTY or the SERVICE according to the form available on line on the "Submit an advertisement for free" page. This description must correspond to the effective characteristics and mention the nature:
Of the LEASED PROPERTY, the dates and availability schedules of the rental, the location, the price and other useful information to better inform the USERS of the conditions of the provision of the rental.
Of the SERVICE, availability, price and other useful information to better inform the USERS of the conditions

The use of hypertext links and/or hyperlinks pointing to the WEBSITES is authorised by MAgic Event within the strict framework of promoting the Website (or Websites) and projects but on the prerequisite that the whole of the WEBSITES is preserved and that there is no risk of confusion between the WEBSITES and Websites published by third parties being noted.
From this perspective, MAgic Event formally prohibits each USER from using framing, inline linking and deep linking techniques relating to the unauthorised servile reproduction of the Website content and its inclusion on web pages published by third parties.
20. CORRESPONDANCE BETWEEN PARTIES
Unless specifically provided in these GCS, correspondence exchanged between USERS and MAgic Event shall be carried out by e-mail via the Website.
Elements such as the time of receipt or issue, as well as the quality of the data received shall be priority evidence as they appear on MAgic Event’s computer systems, or as authenticated by the MAgic Event's computerised procedures, except where written proof is otherwise provided by the USERS.
21. RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE WEBSITE
21.1. MAgic Event hosts Advertisements and messages published by USERS on the WEBSITE.
MAgic Event only acts as a technical intermediary complying with the provisions of clause 6-1-2 of the French act concerning Trust in the Digital Economy of 21 June 2004, known as "LCEN".
The responsibility of MAgic Event with regards to third parties may only be established after having been notified of the unlawful nature of the content distributed on the MAgic Event's WEBSITES. This is what will lead MAgic Event to proceed on its own initiative and by the authority of withdrawing the corresponding files, by simple notification made under the clause 6.1-5 of this law, concerning the contents referred to in clauses 12 and 13 hereof and which are either prohibited or infringe the rights or intellectual property of the person.
21.2. The responsibility of MAgic Event with regards to the USER may only be established if the obligations of the GCS were not fulfilled.
MAgic Event cannot, under any circumstances, be held liable for the tenancy conditions offered directly by the SUPPLIER MEMBERS as well as in cases infringements of the provisions in the current laws and regulations by the USER MEMBERS.
The SUPPLIER MEMBER retains the sole responsibility of informing the USERS of the details concerning the tenancy of his/her LEASED PROPERTY or his/her SERVICE. He/she is the only person responsible for the description of the tenancy conditions offered for sale online.
21.3. MAgic Event shall not be held liable for the loss of data entered in sections reserved for USERS, including those that relate to content published through the WEBSITES.
USERS have fully aware of the provision of this clause and including the guarantees and limitations of the aforementioned responsibility, essential conditions without which MAgic Event would never have contracted.
Similarly, MAgic Event assumes no responsibility for the links on its WEBSITES with other websites which it does not own and cannot control. Consequently it exercises no control over the content, charters of personal data protection or the practices of the third party published websites.
MAgic Event is not responsible for the availability of these websites and can neither control the content nor validate the advertisement, the products or other information distributed on these websites.
21.4. MAgic Event does not intervene in the conclusion of the:
- Seasonal tenancy agreement between the SUPPLIER MEMBER and the LESSEE MEMBER.
- Service agreement between the SUPPLIER MEMBER and the LESSEE MEMBER.
Therefore, it does not exercise any control over the quality, reliability or the lawfulness of the agreement or the service suggested by the WEBSITE.
22. FORCE MAJEURE
22.1. Any event beyond the control of MAgic Event and against which it cannot reasonably protect itself constitutes a case of force majeure and to this end the obligations of the parties are suspended. Such events include, but are not limited to: a strike or technical breakdown (EDF, ERDF, telecommunications operators, internet access providers or hosts, registrars, etc.), a stoppage in the supply of energy (such as electricity), a fault in the electronic communication network that MAgic Event depends on and/or networks that substitute it.
22.2. MAgic Event cannot be held liable, or considered as having breached its obligations provided in these General Conditions of Sale, or any non-performance linked to a case of force majeure such as is defined by French law, case law and the present contract.
23. TECHNICAL PROVISIONS
The services are provided as is and insofar as they are available.
MAgic Event does not guarantee supply without error, without isolated and secure interruptions of the services offered by the WEBSITE.
It has no obligation to provide personalised, and particularly technical, assistance.
It disclaims all express and implied warranties, especially regarding the quality and compatibility of the WEBSITE to the USERS' actions.
It does not guarantee any results nor benefit from the use of the suggested services through the WEBSITE.
Neither does it guarantee that the files transmitted by the USERS are safe from intrusions by non-authorised third parties nor corrupted or downloaded or that the information and the data circulating the Internet is protected against such attacks or possible diversions.
24. GENERAL CONDITIONS OF SALE UPDATE
THE WEBSITE are likely to modify and/or update the terms of the GCS, as well as the specific conditions according to certain economic and legal necessities; when using the services the USERS will be informed and will be given eight (8) days to give notice, by letter or e-mail, of their rejections of the modifications suggested and accordingly request the deletion of their user account.
Otherwise, the suggested modifications will be considered as tacitly accepted by the USERS and the agreement will continue until complete.
THE WEBSITES reserve the right to modify the service characteristics, at any moment, without the said modifications resulting in substantial modifications. THE WEBSITES therefore notify the USERS of this change fifteen (15) days before these conditions come into force. The SUPPLIER MEMBER must unreservedly validate and accept the GCS in force at the time of his/her registration, during the transition of a new advertisement and during the validation of a tenancy.
The provisions of the present GCS express the entirety of the agreement concluded between the USERS and MAgic Event. It takes precedence over any proposal, correspondence exchanged before or after the signing of the present agreement, as well as over all other provisions contained in the documents exchanged between the parties and relative to the object of the GCS, except the amendment signed by the representatives of the two parties.
If one or several provisions of these GCS are held not to be valid or declared as such in the application of a law, a regulation or following a final decision by a competent court, the other stipulations of these GCS shall maintain their force and scope.
Where applicable, MAgic Event undertakes to delete and replace this clause immediately with another clause that is legally valid.
27. ATTRIBUTION OF JURISDICTION - APPLICABLE LAW
All difficulties that emerged from the interpretation and/or the execution of the present GCS will be submitted for consideration to the competent French courts, the only applicable law being the French laws.
