The CUSTOMER has precisely evaluated his own needs and made sure that the Telecom Services proposed by VALUE IT are in adequacy with his needs.
The Parties have agreed on the following.
The purpose of these Special Conditions of Access to Services is to define the terms and conditions under which VALUE IT provides the CUSTOMER (hereinafter: CUSTOMER or the Subscriber) with its Internet, Telecom and Cloud access service on the one hand, and the Customer accesses and uses these services on the other hand.
The specific conditions stipulated on the product sheets in the Tariff Catalogue, provided to the Subscriber when ordering online, are an integral part of the present contract.
Subscriber/CUSTOMER - Natural or legal person in the name and on behalf the subscription is made.
ADSL - Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line. ADSL is one of the xDSL technologies that improve the performance of access networks and in particular of the subscriber line of the traditional phone network, made up of copper wires. Thanks to the use of two modems, one placed at the Subscriber's home, the other on the Subscriber's line, in front of the main distribution frame, it allows to considerably improve the network speed to obtain transmissions 70 times faster than with a traditional analog modem.
Attenuation/Loss -A general term used to indicate the loss of power from one point to another, an attenuation is expressed in dB per unit́ of length. Note that the scale used is logarithmic, an increase of 3 dB is twice the previous value. The term is also used to characterize a loss of signal amplitude through transmission lines and equipment.
Analog - Refers to a signal that has continuous variations and can take on any value within certain limits. Sounds, voices, colors, as perceived by our senses, are analog entities. In telecommunications and computer science, this term is often opposed to digital, qualifying a signal that can only take a limited number of discontinuous values (two if the signal is binary).
ANI - Automatic Number Identification - Automatic identification of the calling number.
Major Anomaly - Malfunction resulting to the total cut of a Service.
APNF - Association of inter-operator flow standardization platforms.
ARCEP - Authority for the Regulation of Electronic Communications and Postal Services - Following the promulgation of the law on the regulation of postal activities on May 20, 2005, the ART became the ARCEP.
ATM - Born in the 1980s, ATM (Asynchronous Transfer Mode), claims to be the protocol that reconciles all constraints related to the transport of multimedia data over very high speed networks (up to 622 Mbits/s, well beyond̀ the 2 Mbits/s of the Transpac network with X25, or the 34 Mbits/s of frame relay services (Frame Relay). It is a variant of packet technologies (X25, Frame Relay) but has the advantage of operating according to a division of data into cells of small and fixed size
Backbone - The main artery and backbone of the network. It is the backbone of a telecommunications network. Operators' backbone networks are very high transmission rate arteries, which connect the main nodes of the network and to which links of lower transmission capacity are connected.
Bandwidth - Refers to the transmission capacity of a transmission link. It determines the amount́ of information (in bits/s) that can be transmitted simultaneously. It is also the difference between the highest and lowest frequencies available for network signals. This term is also used to describe the evaluated throughput of a given transmission medium or protocol.
Local Loop - Also called́ last mile, this is the portion of phone line that connects the Subscriber to its central office.
Centrex - Central Exchange - Private switching service provided by an operator from its general switching resources. It avoids the need for a company to own its own switch. Service that allows one or more companies to use a shared and hosted PBX.
Cloud - Virtualized hosting service and / or storage used for outsourcing data and / or services. The technology used by VALUE IT as part of the Cloud offering is the partitioning of one or more physical servers into several isolated virtual servers.
CODEC - Abbreviation for Encoder-Decoder. Electronic equipment or component that transforms an analog signal (e.g., sound or image) into a digital data stream and vice versa.
Unified Communications - Integration of real-time business communications services such as instant messaging, presence information, voice (including IP telephony), mobility features (including extended mobility and single-number service), audio, video and web conferencing, fixed-mobile convergence, desktop sharing, data sharing (including web-based interactive electronic whiteboards), call control, and voice recognition for non-real-time communication services such as unified messaging (integrated voice, email, text messaging, and fax).
CPE - Customer Premices Equipement - Term for network terminal equipment located within a user’s property limits.

By managing and coordinating customer interactions across multiple channels, services, lines of business and geographies, CRM helps companies improve their performance and maximize the value of each customer interaction.
Data - Data is an English term used in the telecommunications sector to describe data that can circulate over a phone or computer network, except for voice data.
Throughput - The amount of information carried in a unit of time by a means of communication. A rate is expressed in Bit per second (not to be confused with Baud). Measures the amount of information a channel can transmit in a given time, usually expressed in bits per second (bps) for digital transmissions.
Unbundling - Separation of telecommunication services into several batches traditionally grouped into a single batch, so that they may be entrusted to different telecommunication operators.
Full unbundling - the user is no longer a customer and no longer pays the subscription of the incumbent operator. His line is directly connected (at the NRA level) to the equipment (DSLAM) of the third party operator.
Partial unbundling - the user is still a customer of the incumbent operator and continues to use the POTS on the switched phone network; he continues to pay the corresponding subscription and benefits from all the services associated with his line (phone subscription). Being in partial unbundling means that one is unbundled́ and therefore this term does not apply in non-unbundled area.

The Domain Name System is a key element́ of the Internet, providing a mechanism for resolving host names into IP addresses.
DSLAM - Digital Subscriber Line Access Multiplexer - DSL line concentrator, placed in phone exchanges. It directs the DSL flows towards the ATM network of the operator. Located on the network of the local operator, at the level of the distribution frame, it is part of the equipment used to transform a traditional phone line into an ADSL line allowing the transmission of data, and in particular the access to Internet, at high speed. The function of the DSLAM is to group several ADSL lines on a single support, which carries the data from and to these lines.

The Subscriber and the User (natural or legal person) declare to be at least 18 years old.
The present contract comes into force on the date of the signature of the Commercial and Technical Proposal by the CUSTOMER.
The Services are invoiced by VALUE IT to the Subscriber from the date of their first activation, according to the costs indicated in the VALUE IT commercial and technical proposal.
The costs indicated on the Catalogue can be modified by VALUE IT. VALUE IT undertakes to notify the Subscriber, by any means and within a reasonable time, of any change in the costs applicable to it under the Subscribed Services.
In the event of a cost increase, the Subscriber will have a period of thirty (30) days from the date of notification sent by VALUE IT to terminate the subscription to the Service(s) concerned, subject to notifying VALUE IT of this decision by registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt. This termination, which will be carried out by VALUE IT, will not entail any right to compensation or compensation for the Subscriber. Failing notification by the Subscriber within the period provided for in this article, the Subscriber is deemed to have definitively and irrevocably accepted the application of the notified rate increase.
Subscriptions are payable in advance orward invoicing to be carried out, except for over-the-counter phone charges whose invoicing is due). The Subscriber's invoicing starts as soon as the service is delivered. The first invoice will be prorated between the delivery date and the end of the month. Thereafter, the invoices will correspond to monthly calendar periods. Any month started is from.
The corresponding invoice is sent once a month by email.
For Internet links, if the Subscriber has not contested́ the good functioning of the link within 3 days after its delivery by VALUE IT, the link is considered́ as functional and the invoicing starts de facto.
VALUE IT nevertheless remains flexible as to the date of delivery of Voice services, in particular concerning Subscriptions and associated packages; on the other hand, the invoicing starts as soon as the requested services are delivered.
Each invoice will include the following information
- the cost of activating the line and additional services;
- the amount of the Subscriptions due for the Services for the month to come
- the amount of the consumptions out of the packages or Subscriptions for the expired period, if necessary.
The first invoice issued by VALUE IT will be calculated on a pro rata basis of the number of calendar days between the date of activation of the Service(s) and the end of the first month containing this date.
The Subscriber has a maximum period of thirty (30) days from the date of the VALUE IT’s invoice to contest the amount on the basis of the records established by VALUE IT, which will be authentic between the parties.
After this period, the Subscriber will be presumed to have waived́ any recourse against this invoice, which will then be deemed accepted and fully due by the Subscriber. In any event, the Subscriber's complaints regarding an invoice shall not authorize the Subscriber to defer payment thereof.
Without prejudice to the previous provisions, any unpaid amount, any unpaid́ (direct debit rejection) or any delay in payment may result in the immediate suspension of the subscribed Services, pending the regularization of the situation. Access will be reopened upon receipt of payment.
As of the suspension, VALUE IT will instruct the Subscriber by registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt to regularize the situation within two weeks of receipt of said letter.
In the event that the payment has not reached VALUE IT within the indicated deadlines, the amount thus remaining due will be increased by an amount of forty euros (40,00€) corresponding to the management fees of the unpaid. Costs relating to the rejection of levies will be reduced to twenty (20) euros.
In the absence of regularisation by the Subscriber and after reminder by registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt, VALUE IT reserves the right to put the disputed file in litigation. All costs incurred by VALUE IT will be charged to the Subscriber.
The Subscriber will not be able, in any case, to ask for any indemnity to VALUE IT, because of the interruption of the access to the service following the payment incident.
In order to guarantee the payment of the service, VALUE IT may request a security deposit from the Subscriber on the date of signature of the VALUE IT Commercial and Technical Proposal or at any time three (3) months after the date of beginning the service or, if pre-existing, after the date of beginning of the service of the first access link ordered by the Subscriber in application of the present, if payment incidents or delays are noted, or in case of a significant increase in the invoiced amounts or of a change in the Subscriber's financial situation. VALUE IT will send its request on the order or, during the order, by registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt.
The Subscriber will then provide to VALUE IT, as a security deposit, an initial amount corresponding to (i) three (3) months of invoicing calculated on the basis of the orders forecast provided by the Subscriber or (ii), if the deposit is made more than six (6) months after ordering the first access link, all six (6) last months of actual invoicing for all orders in progress pursuant to this Agreement. The deposit amount will be adjusted quarterly to reflect the actual invoiced amounts at any time to six (6) months the service was invoiced for all outstanding orders under this Agreement. In the event of total or partial non-payment of any invoice at its due date and after formal notice has remained without effect for eight (8) days from its dispatch, VALUE IT may deduct the corresponding amount from the security deposit. VALUE IT will inform the Subscriber of this deduction by registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt, and the Subscriber will have to reconstitute the guarantee deposit.
The Subscriber will proceed to any payment, adjustment or replenishment of the security deposit as described above no later than eight (8) days after the occurrence.
If the Subscriber does not make such a payment, adjustment or replenishment within the aforementioned period, the provisions relating to the delay or non-payment of any invoice shall apply. If the Subscriber fails to pay the security deposit prior to the service start date, if such a deposit is provided, the provision of the service will be suspended. Nevertheless, the Subscriber will pay the charges for the service from the estimated service start date indicated in the VALUE IT Commercial and Technical Proposal. In the absence of the late payment, adjustment or replenishment of the security deposit, no access link may be ordered by the Subscriber until the date of payment, adjustment or replenishment of the deposit.
In the absence of late payment by the Subscriber and/or dispute between the parties, the security deposit will be returned to the Subscriber by VALUE IT two (2) months after the end of the last valid order.
The costs in effect are those mentioned in the VALUE IT Commercial and Technical Proposal.
They are expressed without taxes. All these costs can be revised monthly, as well as the Subscription and debit periods attached to them.
These changes will be notified to the Subscriber by email and/or mail at least one month before their application date. If the Subscriber does not contest these new rates in compliance with the conditions set out in the article « CANCELLATION » section of this document, they will be deemed to have been definitively and irrevocably accepted by the Subscriber. In the event that the Subscriber does not accept the new rates, it is free to cancel its Subscription under the terms of the article « CANCELLATION » herein.

VALUE IT undertakes to install or have installed on the Subscriber’s premises the products and services ordered by the Subscriber and accepted by VALUE IT.
In this regard, the Subscriber will communicate to VALUE IT, prior to the scheduled installation date, a detailed description of its premises and undertakes at its own expense to equip and install its premises in accordance with VALUE IT’s instructions.
The Subscriber further undertakes to ensure at its own expense all modifications to its premises necessary to provide the appropriate power, circuits and electrical connections, and any other special arrangement in accordance with the installation and maintenance standards defined by VALUE IT, including in particular the arrangement of access routes for connection of the connecting wiring. These installation and maintenance standards will be communicated by VALUE IT upon any written request from the Subscriber prior to or without the order.
The Subscriber will allow access to its premises during normal working hours to VALUE IT authorized representatives or contractors for installation, inspection, maintenance, repair, replacement, relocation or withdrawal of Products or Services and generally in order to enable VALUE IT to undertake any action that may be useful in the performance of the Contract, and in accordance with any constraints established by the title of occupancy of the Subscriber’s premises.

Portability allows the Subscriber to keep a national fixe number in the event of a change of Operator. Furthermore, it will only be feasible if (i) the national fixed number to be ported is an active number held by the Subscriber and (ii) a Portability mandate is granted by the Subscriber.
The operating procedures and tariffs associated with the Portability services of a national fixed number can be found in the VALUE IT Commercial and Technical Proposal.
When subscribing a service with an incoming Portability request from VALUE IT, the Subscriber must give VALUE IT a Portability mandate, Complete and signed, allowing VALUE IT to take the steps with the Operator to implement the porting of the number.
In this context, VALUE IT informs the Subscriber of the eligibility conditions of its application as well as the consequences of its Portability application and in particular that:
- the right to portability is acquired subject to compliance with the eligibility criteria, in particular the Fixed Number that is the subject of the request must always be active on the day of porting,
- the request for Number Portability is equivalent to a request for termination of the Subscriber’s contract with the Operator in respect of the fixed number carried,
- the termination of the Subscriber’s contract with the Operator takes effect on the day of the Porting of the actual number without prejudice to the contractual provisions relating to the duration of the commitment. The Subscriber remains bound by the obligations that bind it to the Operator, in particular any remaining payments (e.g. penalties for early termination),
- the request for Portability of a fixed number concerns exclusively the retention of the fixed number and does not entail the transfer of the services from which the Subscriber benefited under the contract previously subscribed to the Operator,
- VALUE IT cannot be responsible for the reliability and accuracy of all the information contained in the Portability mandate transmitted by the Subscriber.
VALUE IT reserves the right, in any event, to withhold or delay the provision of the service if it is likely not to be made available under conditions satisfactory to Subscribers already connected.
VALUE IT will inform the Subscriber within 15 days of its order, which may, if this period exceeds 8 weeks, cancel its subscription request.

This commitment covers the total interruption of the IP Telephony offer, observed and measured by VALUE IT. The accumulation of penalties relating to the Recovery Time is capped at one (1) Monthly Fee.
VALUE IT measures the annual availability of the Service thanks to an indicator named Maximum Service Interruption (MSI). VALUE IT undertakes to keep the annual MSI below thirty (30) Business Hours. When an Interruption is noted in non-Business Hours, the duration of the Interruption is counted from the first Business Hour that follows.
If the Subscriber has subscribed to the optional service GTR Advanced, VALUE IT undertakes to maintain the IMS below twenty (20) hours.
In case of non-compliance with the above IMS, the following liquidated damages will be applied per affected Guaranteed Link:
- Access link without subscription of the Advanced GTR option:

33h <= IMS < 36h: 40% of the monthly fee for Telephony on IP; 36h <= IMS < 39h: 60% of the monthly fee for Telephony on IP; 39h <= IMS: 100% of the monthly fee for Telephony on IP.
- Access link with subscription of the Advanced GTR option:
20h <= IMS < 23h: 20% of the monthly fee of the Telephony on IP offer; 23h <= IMS < 26h: 40% of the monthly fee of the Telephony on IP offer; 26h <= IMS < 29h: 60% of the monthly fee of the Telephony on IP offer; 29h <= IMS: 100% of the monthly fee of the Telephony on IP offer.
The cumulation of IMS penalties is capped at one (1) Monthly Fee.
The Interruptions and the Restoration Times will be counted between the time when an Interruption is notified by the Subscriber to VALUE IT, in accordance with the present Special Conditions, and the time when VALUE IT notifies the Subscriber that the Service on the concerned Guaranteed Link is restored.
Any penalties due by VALUE IT to the Subscriber in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement will constitute the sole obligation and compensation due by VALUE IT, and the sole compensation and recourse of the Subscriber, in respect of the quality of the Service. VALUE IT's responsibility will not be engaged and no penalty will be due when the Interruption or the failure to comply with the service level commitments defined above will result :
- a modification of the Service requested by the Subscriber
- a case of force majeure,
- the act of a third party,
- the fact of the Subscriber and in particular the failure to comply with the technical specifications provided by VALUE IT for the implementation of the Service or a malfunction of the internal service,
- an element not installed and operated by VALUE IT,
- exceptional difficulties and, in particular, the existence of particular constraints or the necessity to implement special means (such as regulated access, prohibition of passage, natural obstacles, architectural configurations not accessible by usual means.) not attributable to VALUE IT,

- a disturbance or interruption in the supply or operation of the telecommunication means provided by the operator(s) of the networks to which VALUE IT's installations are connected, and in particular in case of malfunctioning of the infrastructure networks of the public domain concessionaires,
- changes due to VALUE IT requirements by the Telecommunications Regulatory Authority or any other regulatory body. Once the conditions are met, the Subscriber may, without further formality, ask VALUE IT for the amount of the corresponding penalties. This amount will be deducted by VALUE IT from the Customer’s next invoice.
The service consists of the provision by VALUE IT, for each Subscriber, of a fixed broadband phone service via the connection to the Orange switched network and associated options, in addition to a carrier selection offer.
The routing of eligible calls is ensured by VALUE IT, the routing of any other call (special numbers) from or to the Subscriber located in Metropolitan France is ensured by Orange.
The service can be offered on the following accesses:
- Existing Isolated Analog Access identified by a ND and supporting a connection contract with the Historical Operator;
- Existing Analog Access Group identified by a ND and supporting a connection contract with the Historical Operator;
- Existing Isolated Base access identified by an NDI and supporting a connection contract with the Historical Operator;

The operating procedures and rates associated with WSS’s services are found in the VALUE IT Commercial and Technical Proposal, respectively.
When subscribing a service in WSS, the Subscriber must give VALUE IT a mandate from WSS, completed and signed allowing VALUE IT to carry out the necessary steps for the delivery of the service.
VALUE IT cannot be held responsible for the reliability and accuracy of all the information contained in WSS’s mandate transmitted by the Subscriber.
VALUE IT’s responsibility for the provision and provision of the Service ends at the first physical access point of the network installed by Orange on the Subscriber’s premises. It is materialized, depending on the case, by an internal termination device (DTI), a slider, the cable head or, failing that, by the first telephone socket.
It is the Subscriber’s responsibility to ensure that the pipes, ducts and cable passages and termination devices located within the property served and made available to Orange for the provision of the Service are kept in good condition. This is a prerequisite for the proper functioning of the Service. The Customer must also ensure that the connection cable(s) within the Site served are kept in good condition.
The Subscriber must thus cover the costs of maintenance and repair of the above facilities as well as those of the cable(s) of connection in case of deterioration.
Any removal or modification of the connection cable(s) in the Site served to the termination point must be done with the Orange assistance. The implementation of the Service implies the automatic termination of the Phone Subscription and all offers and services subscribed to the Subscriber’s operator, as well as any existing pre-selection.
The implementation of the Service on an analog line in full unbundling or bare ADSL removes all services previously subscribed by the Customer on this line. It is therefore up to the Subscriber to terminate the services held by another operator on this type of line prior to the migration operations.
The provision of the service depends on Orange providing the corresponding services, which are subject to Orange’s terms and conditions, which the Subscriber acknowledges and accepts. Accordingly, in the event of a change in the terms and conditions other than tariffs or the deletion of all or part of Orange’s services, VALUE IT will send the Subscriber a notification with one month’s notice. The Subscriber may then request the termination of the Services concerned by registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt.

The Subscriber is responsible for the connection of the modem/router to its phone jack, the deployment of its Terminals and Subscriber Equipment and the configuration of its local network system. In this case, VALUE IT (or a third party agent) may offer modem/router connection services and configuration of its local network system. The service will be invoiced according to the prices indicated in VALUE IT Commercial and Technical Proposal.
The Subscriber will make its best efforts to facilitate the performance of the Service.
The date of receipt of the delivery note to the Subscriber materializes the date of production of the offer. This date is valid in all exchanges between VALUE IT and the Subscriber.
The Subscriber then has three (3) Business Days to contest the proper functioning of the DATA Products and Services from the date of receipt of the delivery slip. In this case, the Subscriber will give written reasons for this refusal by the existence of Major Anomalies.
If the Subscriber does not reply or object in writing within this three (3) Business Days or if the Subscriber uses the DATA Products and Services for operational purposes, the access link will be deemed to be put into operation tacitly and the Service Start Date will be the date of dispatch of the delivery note issued by VALUE IT.
The Subscriber is satisfied with the installation of the Terminal Equipment and Internal Service necessary for the commissioning of the access links for which it will bear the costs and assume the responsibilities.
The Subscriber undertakes to perform or have performed these services by a service provider of its choice as soon as possible, at its expense. If the deployment cannot be carried out due to a delay for which the Subscriber is responsible, the Service will be invoiced from the date of initial commissioning.
VALUE IT determines the technical means necessary for the proper functioning of the Service and recommends compatible equipment.
The Subscriber is informed and agrees that it is exclusively its responsibility to purchase, at its own expense, the necessary Subscriber Terminals or Equipment to access the Internet. If necessary, the Subscriber may obtain certain items (modem, router) from VALUE IT, according to the terms and conditions proposed by VALUE IT.
VALUE IT cannot be held responsible for any malfunctions or disturbances that may occur, in whole or in part, due to any incompatibility of the Subscriber’s Terminals or Equipment, unless the Terminals or Equipment concerned have been obtained from VALUE IT.
VALUE IT does not support the configuration and provision of active elements of the Subscriber’s local network, nor the design of the Subscriber’s Equipment architecture. Except if the subscriber validated an additional order in this sense.
If the Subscriber wishes, VALUE IT or a mandated third party may provide, under certain conditions specified in VALUE IT Business and Technical Proposal, the cabling services related to Internal Service are the Subscriber’s responsibility.
The Service is performed during Business Hours, in private parts on the Site, excluding common parts of multi-client buildings, with the exception of break points on the Site landing.
The Subscriber will make its best efforts to facilitate the performance of the Service. Seven (7) Business Days prior to the Site’s anticipated commissioning date, the Subscriber shall make available to VALUE IT (or any agent) sufficient and arranged Site locations to enable the wiring of Internal Service. Failing this, VALUE IT and the Subscriber will define a new commissioning date and the Subscriber undertakes to bring the Subscriber’s Equipment and more generally its installation into compliance, at its expense and as soon as possible. The Service will nevertheless be invoiced from the date of initial commissioning.
For cases which not correspond to the conditions defined above, VALUE IT reserves the right not to provide the Service. The Subscriber undertakes to have the Service performed by a service provider of its choice as soon as possible, at his expense. The Service will be invoiced from the date of initial commissioning.
The Subscriber agrees to pay VALUE IT the cost of any service for which it gives an oral or written agreement to the service provider in charge of the Service, even without an explicit order of this Service to VALUE IT.
VALUE IT provides the Subscriber with a single point of entry for the reception, handling, referral and tracking of Interruptions notifications. This service is accessible during Business Hours, or 24 hours a day, 7 days a week if the Subscriber has subscribed to the Advanced GTR option, for the contacts designated by the Customer. Upon receipt of a call from the Subscriber, VALUE IT will qualify the call as follows:
- Caller’s identification and verification of his authorisation,
- identification of impacted sites (pre-location of the incident).
Once the call is qualified, VALUE IT will open a ticket registered in the management system and referenced by a unique identifier. This reference number will be required to track the Interruption. The schedule mentioned on the incident ticket will be the starting point for calculating the duration of an Interruption, subject to confirmation by the Subscriber of the written declaration by fax or e-mail within thirty (30) minutes of the call. The Subscriber will provide VALUE IT with all information required by VALUE IT to locate and remedy the Interruption. This information will include, but is not limited to:
- name of the Customer contact declaring the Interruption;
- type of service impacted;
- description, location and consequences of the interruption;
- if necessary, contact details of a person to be kept informed (if different from the caller).
In case of malfunction of a relevant Guaranteed Link delivered without Terminal Equipment at the request of the Subscriber, VALUE IT may request the Subscriber, if necessary, to intervene on the End User Equipment without delay and according to its instructions in order to locate the incident.
The closing will be done by VALUE IT as follows: - Customer information (by phone, or e-mail),
- Determination of the duration of the interruption,
- Closing and archiving the incident.
VALUE IT undertakes to restore the service of an ADSL Link without any time commitment. There is no notion of penalty for ADSL links.
VALUE IT undertakes to restore the service of a Guaranteed Link in less than four (4) hours (hereinafter "Recovery Time") from the time the customer reports the Interruption during Business Hours, according to the procedure defined above. Outside of these hours, the Restoration is deferred́ to the first following Business Day, before 12:00 pm.
If the customer has subscribed to the optional Advanced GTR service, the Restoration Time is deducted from the reporting of the Interruption by the Customer in accordance with the present seven (7) days out of seven (7) and twenty-four (24) hours out of twenty-four (24).
In case of non-compliance with the Recovery Time of a Guaranteed Link, VALUE IT will pay by Access Link concerned a release payment as defined below:
- 4h < Recovery Time <= 6h30: 20% of the monthly fee of the Guaranteed Link concerned;
- 6h30 < Recovery Time <= 8h30: 40% of the monthly fee of the Guaranteed Link concerned;
- 8.30am < Recovery Time <= 10am: 60% of the monthly fee of the Guaranteed Link concerned;
- 10h < Recovery time: 100 % of the monthly fee of the Guaranteed Link concerned. This commitment covers the total interruption of the guaranteed link, recorded and measured by VALUE IT.
The monthly accumulation of Recovery Time penalties is capped at one (1) Monthly Fee per Guaranteed Link concerned.
VALUE IT measures the annual availability of each guaranteed link with an indicator called Maximum Service Interruption (MSI). VALUE IT undertakes to maintain the annual MSI of a relevant Guaranteed Link of less than thirty (30) Business Hours. When an Interruption is observed in Non-working Time, the Interruption duration is counted from the first Working Time that follows.
If the Customer has subscribed to the optional Advanced GTR service, VALUE IT undertakes to keep the MSI of the Guaranteed Link in question less than twenty (20) hours. In case of non-compliance with the MSI above, the following release penalties will be applied by the Guaranteed Link concerned:
- Access link without subscription of the Advanced GTR option:
30h <= MSI < 33h: 20% of the monthly fee of the Guaranteed Link concerned;
33h <= MSI < 36h: 40% of the monthly fee of the Guaranteed Link concerned;
36h <= MSI < 39h: 60% of the monthly fee of the Guaranteed Link concerned;
39h <= MSI: 100% of the monthly fee of the Guaranteed Link concerned.
- Access link with subscription of the Advanced GTR option:
20h <= MSI < 23h: 20% of the monthly fee for the Guaranteed Link concerned; 23h <= MSI < 26h: 40% of the monthly fee for the Guaranteed Link concerned; 26h <= MSI < 29h: 60% of the monthly fee for the Guaranteed Link concerned; 29h <= MSI: 100% of the monthly fee of the Guaranteed Link concerned.
The MSI penalties are capped at one (1) Monthly Fee per guaranteed link.
VALUE IT also markets Applications and related telecommunications services (site hosting, Internet, intranet and extranet access management, collaborative messaging, etc.).
VALUE IT provides the Subscriber with a tool to access information related to the Subscribed Applications.
This administration tool is accessible via a Web interface by username and password. The management of this tool is the responsibility of the Subscriber as administrator.
The connection to the remote server is subject to the use by the Subscriber of his username and password (the "Identifiers"), personal and confidential, transmitted by VALUE IT. The Subscriber undertakes to ensure its security, to preserve its confidentiality and, in particular, not to disclose them to third parties. It is solely responsible for the use made of its Identifiers, regardless of the user, and the resulting consequences. Any connection or transaction made from the Subscriber’s Identifiers will be deemed to have been made by the Subscriber.
The Subscriber must inform VALUE IT immediately of any loss, misappropriation or unauthorized use of its Identifiers, VALUE IT having the possibility to block access to the remote server or to give new Identifiers. In case of misuse or unauthorized use of the Subscriber’s Identifiers, the Subscriber’s liability for VALUE IT will only be released after a period of one (1) Business day after receipt by Customer Service of the registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt from the Subscriber informing it of the loss, misappropriation or unauthorized use.
The Subscriber may be offered the creation of electronic mailboxes for its exclusive use, under the conditions provided for in the tariff sheets of VALUE IT.
Under no circumstances may the electronic mailboxes allocated by VALUE IT to the Subscriber be transferred, granted or otherwise transferred in whole or in part to third parties, free of charge or in return for payment.
VALUE IT cannot be responsible for the consequences of the saturation of any electronic mailboxes and in particular the loss of messages that may result from this situation.
If the Subscriber wishes to register one or more domain names with the assistance of VALUE IT, Commissioning will be subject to VALUE IT obtaining confirmation by the competent bodies of the registration of domain names corresponding to the websites concerned
VALUE IT may add other Applications to its offer catalogue, such as applications for office use or Unified Communications applications. The characteristics of these Applications will be described in the Tariff Catalogue.
The Applications provided by VALUE IT to the Subscriber may in no case be transferred, granted or otherwise transferred in whole or in part to third parties, free of charge or for a fee.
The use of the Applications may be subject to the use by the Subscriber of its personal and confidential username and password (the "Identifiers") transmitted by VALUE IT. The Subscriber undertakes to ensure its security, to preserve its confidentiality and, in particular, not to disclose them to third parties. It is solely responsible for the use made of its Identifiers, regardless of the user, and the resulting consequences.
The Subscriber is also responsible for the transmission to Users of their Identifiers and their renewal in order to avoid any inappropriate use of the Subscribed Applications.
VALUE IT also markets cloud offers that enable the Subscriber to benefit from memory and server computing resources distributed in VALUE IT data centers or its service providers and linked by networks - the said resources being scalable and, If applicable, virtualisable.
VALUE IT is responsible for the infrastructure that supports the virtual machine(s) that it makes available to the Subscriber, but is in no way responsible – either legally or technically – for the service(s) operated by the Subscriber on its virtual machine(s).
The Cloud Offers in the VALUE IT catalogue consist in making available to the Subscriber one or more Virtual Machine(s), within the Shared VALUE IT Infrastructure or the infrastructure dedicated to the Subscriber, depending on the offer subscribed as well as, where applicable, related services such as Managed Virtualization of a Dedicated Infrastructure.
Quality of Service commitments (Virtual Machines, bandwidth, computing power, etc.) are defined in the Tariff Catalogue.
The Subscriber is responsible for applications, developments, data, databases, software, etc. placed on a Virtual Machine, in order to make them accessible to users via the Internet.
VALUE IT undertakes to:
- operate, maintain, manage, etc. the Shared Infrastructure that supports the Subscriber’s Virtual Machines;
- if the Subscriber subscribed to a Dedicated Infrastructure, VALUE IT must operate and maintain it and, if necessary, ensure the Outsourcing of its Virtualization, if this is provided for in the purchase order
- make available to the Subscriber the Virtual Machines he ordered with the intended operating system, as well as the security tools subscribed by the Subscriber;
- ensure that Virtual Machines have the memory, calculation and bandwidth resources provided for in the Tariff Catalogue.
Moreover, if the Subscriber plans to launch a marketing, communication, etc. operation likely to cause a significant increase in its resource consumption (bandwidth, memory or calculation), it is up to The Subscriber – as part of its duty to collaborate – to inform VALUE IT prior to the launch of the said transaction, within a reasonable time.
VALUE IT will notify the Subscriber in the case of maintenance operations of its Shared Infrastructure that will make Virtual Machines partially or completely unavailable at certain periods. VALUE IT will plan, as far as possible, its maintenance operations during the night (between 10 pm and 8 am) to minimize the inconvenience for the Subscriber and its Users.
These operations will not result in penalties (where applicable) provided that the Subscriber has been notified of the maintenance operations at least 2 (two) clear days in advance.
In the event of the Subscriber’s obligations under the terms of the Agreement (in particular, in relation to allegations of pedophilia, counterfeiting, incitement to racial hatred, etc. of a Subscriber’s Service), VALUE IT may terminate all or part of the Agreement, automatically and without recourse to a judge, by notifying by registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt addressed to the Subscriber the termination of the Services concerned or the Agreement – all without prejudice to any damages.
By express agreement, these services do not include an obligation of reversibility (namely, the assistance of the Subscriber so that he can migrate his Service to another service provider).
The Subscriber – the only master of his Service – must make every effort to facilitate this operation as necessary (which implies, in particular, the implementation of rigorous documentation: Reversibility Book) and the preparation of reversibility plans.
If the reversibility is not included in the scope of services, however, in the event of termination of the services, for whatever reason – including a Subscriber’s fault–, VALUE IT undertakes to provide the Subscriber with an image of its Virtual Machines in a standard format, except where a court decision precludes the application of this clause.
As part of the subscription to certain service offers, VALUE IT gives to the Subscriber one or more phone terminals with or without switch, as a loan for use.
The Subscriber acknowledges and accepts that all terminals and switches placed in its custody remain the exclusive, non-transferable and exclusive property of VALUE IT or its subcontractor. The Subscriber is satisfied with its maintenance, its good use and its protection. Terminals and switches must be returned upon termination of services within 10 days of the request for restitution by VALUE IT.
The provision of terminals and switches is subject to a commitment period of thirty-six (36) months unless otherwise indicated on the order form.
As part of the subscription of an ADSL or VDSL offer, VALUE IT gives the Subscriber a Modem. Ownership of the modem will not be transferred to the Subscriber until full payment of the commissioning fee for your ADSL or VDSL link has been made. The risks or deterioration will be transferred to the Subscriber as soon as the modem is received. The Subscriber is reminded that the modem must not be discarded with unsorted municipal waste (in accordance with Decree no. 2007-1467 of 16 October 2007). The Modem is electrical and electronic equipment in which the possible presence of hazardous substances could have adverse effects on the environment and/or health if not recycled and recovered in an appropriate manner. If despite these precisions the Subscriber were guilty of such an act and this act were identified, he would remain liable for the consequences and damages caused by his act.
IN CASE OF DISPUTE AND AFTER IMPLEMENTATION OF THE CONCILIATION CLAUSE, EXPRESS JURISDICTION WILL BE CONFERRED ON THE COMMERCIAL COURT OF SAINT ETIENNE, NOTWITHSTANDING A PLURALITY OF DEFENDANTS OR AN APPEAL FOR WARRANTY EVEN IN THE CASE OF EMERGENCY PROCEEDINGS OR PROTECTIVE PROCEEDINGS IN THE CASE OF SUCH DEFENDANTS OR BY A REQUEST.
