The Parties undertake to comply with their respective obligations under the Regulation.

XIV- Limitation of Liability

The effectiveness of the Platform in terms of compliance with Regulation depends solely on the diligence of the Client and the Users' compliance with actions to achieve and maintain compliance. The Client is solely responsible for actions to be implemented (contractualization, security, governance, privacy by design, impact assessment, etc.) within its company, on its information system, with its partners, subcontractors, and employees. B4Purpose does not substitute for the Client in practices or decisions to be taken as part of its compliance. B4Purpose's liability cannot be engaged, directly or indirectly, in case of non-compliance by the Client with the Regulation, except for B4Purpose's fault as a data processor.

In the context of using B4Purpose Tool, B4Purpose's liability cannot be engaged in case of (i) unavailability, slowdown of access, or operation of the Platform due to internet limitations; (ii) contamination by viruses of Client Data and/or software due to causes unrelated to B4Purpose; (iii) introduction or attempted fraudulent or malicious access by third parties to the Client's Information System; (iv) possible diversion of passwords, confidential codes of the Client, and more generally, any sensitive information for the Client. B4Purpose holds an insurance policy covering the consequences of civil and professional liability that may be incumbent upon it under these conditions.

XV- Major Forces

B4Purpose's liability cannot be invoked if the non-performance or delay in the performance of any of its obligations described in these general terms and conditions results from a force majeure event. Force majeure includes any external, unpredictable, and irresistible event as defined in Article 1195 of the French Civil Code.

XVI- Applicable Law and Competent Court

Any dispute relating to the interpretation and execution of these terms and conditions is subject to French law.
