Any data saved by the User on Oodrive servers that proves to be corrupted or infected by a virus, or any other computer program that may damage Oodrive or third-party hardware or software, may be deleted by Oodrive or placed in quarantine, and Oodrive will inform the User of this by email as promptly as possible.
In all cases, the User will hold sole responsibility for saving their data.
The User will be solely responsible for third parties for which they authorize access to the Service with their login credentials: email address and password.
The User must use the Service in accordance with the Law and regulations. As a result, the User is strictly prohibited from using the storage space made available by these T&Cs to store, in any form whatsoever, files the content of which would be an infringement of the law and applicable regulations (particularly in intellectual property law, etc.), and in this respect Oodrive holds all recourse against the User.

Oodrive reminds the User that using the Service through the mobile Internet may be subject to billing by their phone operator, and that it is the User’s responsibility to confirm whether this is the case. Oodrive declines any responsibility in the event that the use of the Service by the User was subject to billing by an operator.

Article 11. Security and confidentiality
Oodrive is committed to taking all necessary measures, in accordance with the latest technology, to protect the security of the User’s files and data that are stored through the Service.
However, these security measures do not mean the User does not need access to the necessary software (particularly an antivirus) and to regularly analyze and process their data.
File transfers between the Partner’s applications and servers are made secure using 256-bit SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) encryption. Files placed in the Service are all stored anonymously and encrypted by an AES-256-bit algorithm.
Oodrive undertakes not to act on the User’s data beyond the ability to duplicate content from the storage space with the aim of guaranteeing redundancy and/or backup of the Service in the event of any interruption.
Oodrive undertakes to maintain strictly confidential the existence and content of Customer files and data stored on its servers through the intermediary of the Service and is itself forbidden from communicating these files and data to third parties, except in the event that the User violates any applicable legal provisions and/or requests from competent administrative or legal authorities.

The data entrusted by the User within the context of the Service is considered by Oodrive to be confidential. Oodrive is prohibited from selling or disclosing data except to meet regulatory and legal obligations.
Information such as “email address, connection IP addresses” will be stored by the Partner for the duration of the contractual relationship and for up to twelve months after the Service expires or is canceled.
The nominative information collected is essential for Oodrive to implement and manage the Service. The User expressly authorizes Oodrive to store data relating to them in a computer memory in accordance with the French Data Protection and Freedom of Information Law of 6 January 1978 in its current version dated 28 May 2018, in compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and to communicate it to its subcontractors or to its partners in adherence to the General Service Conditions and their purpose.

Article 14. Liability
Each party will be liable for their failures, errors or omissions, according to the common law conditions, and this liability will be limited to direct damages only.
The User alone has the opportunity to choose whether to save their files and data or not, to store them or to destroy them, and assumes sole liability for their choices.
Furthermore, neither may Oodrive under any circumstances be held responsible for indirect damages such as those applied by the courts.
The User acknowledges and accepts that the Internet network or any other network used for the purposes of transmitting data stored may be saturated and releases Oodrive from all liability in this regard.
Likewise, Oodrive shall not be liable for any interference by third parties in the User’s communication and transmission systems or for Service malfunctions or stoppages due to negligence, errors or any act whatsoever by the User or a third party to this contract.
Oodrive may not be held responsible for any failure during the receipt of data in the event that these failures are the result of filtering and/or locking techniques implemented by technical intermediaries, such as access providers, outside of this contract. If the User observes such failures, they are invited to contact their Internet access provider.
You are reminded that Oodrive does not provide identification or virus protection services.
Article 15. General provisions
These T&Cs and the Service are subject to French Law.
In the event of force majeure, Contract obligations will be suspended for the duration of the force majeure. Cases of force majeure are expressly considered to be those usually cited by case law and the French Courts and Tribunals. In particular, in the event of interruption or saturation of the Internet network itself or of the User’s Internet access provider.
The parties agree that Oodrive is entitled to modify these terms and conditions without further formality than informing the User via an online notification on the website www.sosphotos.eu or by sending an email. The online terms and conditions take precedence over printed terms and conditions. In this case, if these modifications are less favorable to the User, the latter has one (1) month to request that Oodrive cancels this contract without penalty. If the User does not cancel, it will be assumed that they have accepted the new conditions.
Any litigation relating to the execution of the Service or the interpretation of these General Terms and Conditions of Use will be subject to the competent Tribunal in the defendant’s place of residence or the place where the Service is provided, or the place where the contentious act took place or in the jurisdiction in which damage was suffered, as chosen by the User, for any User in the capacity of consumer.
