Messages received by fax or electronically and more generally electronic documents exchanged between Freelance Stack and the User are original writings within the meaning of Article 1366 of the Civil Code, i.e. as having the same value as that given to the original. Faxes or electronic writings should be kept in such a way that they can constitute faithful and durable copies within the meaning of Article 1379 of the Civil Code.

14. Waiver

The fact that one or other of the Parties does not avail itself of one or more of the provisions of the GCU shall in no way imply the waiver by that Party of its right to avail itself of such provisions at a later date.

15. Partial nullity

In the event that certain provisions of the TOS are inapplicable for any reason whatsoever, including because of an applicable law or regulation, the parties will remain bound by the other provisions of the TOS and will endeavour to remedy the inapplicable clauses in the same spirit as that which governed the conclusion.

The User is informed that the Site is intended for patients residing in France and is subject to French law. Therefore, by browsing the Site or using the services of Freelance Stack, the User is subject to French law.

Any difficulties relating to the validity, application or interpretation of the GCU shall be submitted, failing an amicable agreement, to the Tribunal de Grande Instance de Lyon, to which the Parties attribute territorial jurisdiction, regardless of the place of performance or the domicile of the defendant. This attribution of jurisdiction shall also apply in the event of summary proceedings, multiple defendants or an appeal in warranty.
