Article 3. Description of the services of the IPAOO.COM website

3.1 - iPaoo.com allows the Customer, according to the modalities and functionalities related to the chosen offer, to create a website, to ensure its administration, to publish it on the web, to associate a domain name belonging to him, and to benefit from its hosting on the iPaoo.com platform during the whole duration of its subscription.

3.2 - The free trial offer includes 14 days of use of the site on the iPaoo.com platform. It is subject to these general terms and conditions of sale and use, available on iPaoo.com, which the Customer expressly accepts when registering.

3.3 - Any paid subscription allowing access to and use of the iPaoo.com service also implies the express acceptance by the Customer, when registering for the 14-day trial period, of the said General Terms and Conditions of Sale and Use available on the iPaoo.com website.

3.4 - Details of the offers are available on the iPaoo.com website's Pricing page at the following address https://www.ipaoo.com/pricing/

3.5.1 - Some iPaoo Packs include the allocation of a domain name and up to 5 Pop accounts (email accounts), to offer a global service to the iPaoo Client. In this respect, iPaoo will only act as an intermediary between the Customer and the organizations respectively responsible for the allocation of domain names ("registrar"). Each of these organizations has its terms and conditions regarding the registration and management of domain names. Consequently, the client gives full power to SARL FIGURES LIBRES to accept the terms and conditions of the respective registrars. These terms and conditions of registration of the appropriate domain providers will therefore be applied in addition to the present GTC. Upon request, the Service Provider will send a copy of these terms and conditions to the Client. They can also access them online from the respective allocation organizations.

3.5.2 - The Customer agrees in particular to provide correct and complete information regarding the domain name's attributor ("registrant"). During the entire subscription process, iPaoo will be the sole contact for administrative, technical, and billing matters. Regardless of the terms and conditions of the registration in question, this information must include the name of the domain name holder, an effective postal address (Post Office Boxes or anonymous addresses are not allowed), a valid e-mail address, and a telephone number. In the event of a change in this information, the Customer is obliged to inform the Service Provider immediately by updating it online.

3.5.3 - Upon conclusion of the contract, iPaoo will give the competent registrar the opportunity to apply the desired domain name for a period of 1 year. iPaoo may postpone the activation of a domain name until the actual receipt of payment of the corresponding subscription. iPaoo is not in a position to influence the allocation of a domain name by the competent organization and cannot guarantee that the requested domain name will be allocated to the Customer, nor that these domain names are free of third-party rights, nor can it guarantee their perpetual existence. Any information given by iPaoo regarding the availability of a domain name is based on information provided by third parties and relates only to the time when this information was requested. The domain will not be considered as assigned until the domain is registered under the Client's name and inserted in the registrar's database.

3.5.4 - In case of termination of the subscription, the domain name remains the property of the customer until the expiration of the current registration. It will then be released from the iPaoo reseller account so that the customer can regain his autonomy on the technical and administrative management of his domain name. During this period, any technical intervention requested by the customer from iPaoo will be subject to additional billing.

3.5.5 - Before applying a domain name, the Customer shall verify that the domain name does not infringe the rights of third parties or violate any applicable law. The Customer certifies that it has fulfilled this obligation and that at the time of this verification there was no indication of such infringements or violations of third-party rights.

3.5.6 - Any change of the requested domain name after registration is excluded. If during the time required to transmit the domain name application to the registrar, the domain name is found to have already been allocated elsewhere, the Customer shall be entitled to choose a different domain name. This will not apply if, in the event of a change of provider, the previous provider refuses the change. In such a case, the Customer will make the necessary arrangements for the release of the domain name by the previous provider or will request another domain name from iPaoo. If certain domain names have been canceled by the Customer himself or by a court decision in the context of a domain name dispute, the Customer will not be entitled to request a free substitute domain name.
