§5 Purpose of the Service

The purpose of these TOS is to determine the terms and conditions of use of the Platform and the Service by Publishers and Customers.

§6 The Platform of the Site has two distinct areas:

1) A space reserved for any Publisher in which the latter may :

  • add one or more Publisher sites to the Platform (a Publisher may include an infinite number of sites in the Site catalog) and offer Customers a price for each type of Link placement;
  • consult the Offers, accept or refuse them;
  • consult the current contracts concluded with Customers with the possibility for the Publisher to terminate them;
  • access the “billing” section/heading in order to consult his invoices and earnings and to request payment.

2) An area reserved for any Customer in which the Customer can :

  • consult the catalog of the Site which is permanently enriched with several hundreds of Publishers’ sites with the possibility for the Customer to make advanced searches (by entering certain search criteria) in order to be able to target certain precise types of Publishers’ sites;
  • the possibility to consult the current contracts concluded with Publishers with the possibility for the Customer to cancel them;
  • check the presence of HTML Links on the Publishers’ sites with which the Customer has concluded a contract via the Site;
  • access the section/heading “invoicing” in order to consult his payments and credit his Transeo account.

Any HTML Link placed by a Publisher must imperatively be able to be followed and recognized by search engines and be present in the source code of the site on which it is placed by the Publisher; to this end, any HTML Link must imperatively respect the following 4 validity criteria (the “4 validity criteria”), unless otherwise expressly stated in the Offer :

  • (i) it must not have the attribute “nofollow”, and
  • (ii) it must not be hidden from search engines, and
  • (iii) it must be contained on a page indexable by search engines, and
  • (iv) it must be visible by any Internet user (without using “display:none” or other properties).

From the moment of acceptance of the Offer, two counters start to increment:

  1. A “days counter” (each day = +1); and
  2. A “presence counter” (of the HTML Link(s) on the website agreed between the Customer and the Publisher) incremented daily if such HTML Link(s) remain(s) present on the website as agreed between the Customer and the Publisher.

If the day counter displays a number greater than 33 and the presence counter displays a number less than 30, then (i) the HTML Link placement agreement/contract/transaction agreed to between Customer and Publisher is terminated, and (ii) Customer is re-credited by Company with the RocketLinks Credits it spent on the HTML Link placement service, and (iii) the Publisher shall not be credited with any winnings from such terminated transaction, and (iv) the Company may decide either to suspend the Publisher’s registration on the Site or, in the event of the Publisher’s recurrence, to permanently terminate its registration on the Site.

If the attendance counter displays the number 30 and the day counter displays a number less than or equal to 33, then (i) the Publisher is credited with the winnings corresponding to said transaction, and (ii) both counters are reset to zero.

If during the course of the transaction between the Customer and the Publisher, the Company and/or the Customer notices that the HTML Link(s) placed by the Publisher does not meet one of the 4 validity criteria (defined above), then (i) the HTML Link placement agreement / contract / transaction agreed between the Customer and the Publisher is terminated, and (ii) the Customer shall be re-credited by the Company with the RocketLinks Credits spent by the Customer in connection with the HTML Link placement service, and (iii) the Publisher shall not be credited with any winnings from such terminated transaction, and (iv) the Company may decide either to suspend the Publisher’s registration on the Site or, in the event of the Publisher’s recurrence, to permanently terminate the Publisher’s registration on the Site.

§7 Sponsored Article

The Publisher commits to leave online the Sponsored Articles sold via Transeo and the Link(s) present in them during the whole life of its site. In case of non-respect of this condition, the Company gives itself the right to delete its Account, delete its site(s) or make the Sponsored Article product unavailable for the latter.

The Company shall not be liable for the deletion of the Sponsored Item and/or the Link(s) contained therein after 30 days of the presence of the Sponsored Item and the Link(s) and shall not be required to refund the Client where applicable. However, the Company agrees to notify the Publisher of its commitment to keep the Sponsored Articles sold through the Company and the Link(s) contained in such Sponsored Articles online for the life of the Publisher’s site and agrees to take action with respect to its site(s) or Account if such commitment is not fulfilled.

In general, it is expressly agreed that the Company’s liability towards a User registered on the Site shall not give rise to compensation until a threshold set at five thousand (5,000) euros, this amount of five thousand (5,000) euros being applied as an excess on any sentence pronounced against the Company.

Regardless of the nature, the basis and the terms of the action that would be brought by the Client or the Publisher against the Company, the Company’s liability for direct damages may not exceed, over the entire duration of the provision of the Service and all facts giving rise thereto, an amount equal to the total amount of the HTML Link placement transactions concluded by the Client/ Publisher concerned by the dispute during the last twelve (12) months prior to the Company’s liability being called into question.
