He/she acknowledges, undertakes and guarantees to possess all the necessary rights and authorizations for such publication, especially in accordance with existing legislation and rights with respect to privacy, ownership, intellectual property, copyright, contract or rights of any other nature.
By such publication, the User is aware of his/her responsibility as a publisher of the Content within the meaning of the law, and grants DECATHLON, for the entire duration of the publication, a non-exclusive, gratuitous, worldwide licence, including the rights to reproduce, represent, load, display, execute, transmit, store and sub-license it to its subsidiaries, technical partners and other Users of the Site.

By virtue of its publication, the User authorizes that the Content may become automatically accessible on the Internet, in particular on other applications, sites, blogs and/or DECATHLON's webpages, including DECATHLON's social network pages.
Consultation and use of the Application and/or Site is the User's responsibility. The Application and the Site may host links to third party sites. By clicking on these links, the User acknowledges that DECATHLON cannot guarantee their content, and therefore accesses it at his/her own risk. Accordingly, DECATHLON cannot be held liable for any damages resulting from the access and/or use of the Application and the information contained therein. The User is also informed that DECATHLON may temporarily interrupt access to the Application and/or the Site for technical reasons, especially with regards to its maintenance. The User accepts these interruptions and renounces all claims as a result.
The Use of the Application and/or Site by the User implies an acknowledgement and acceptance of the features and limitations of technologies that are inherent to the Internet, especially with regard to the response times to consult or querying the servers hosting the Application and the Site, the technical performances, the risks of interruption and, more generally, any risk incurred during the transmission of the data.
Therefore, under no circumstances shall DECATHLON be held liable for, but not limited to:

Protection des données personnelles
Using the Application and/or the Site in Custom Mode involves the processing of personal data. This processing is necessary for the customization of the Application, the management of the User account or the completion of an order. The information collected by DECATHLON can be shared with other companies in the DECATHLON group.
The User can avoid any processing of information by using the Application in "Guest" mode. The User has the right to access and correct the data being processed, which may concern him/her, by contacting email@example.com (attach copy identification document).
If one or more clauses of the General Terms and Conditions of Use are declared null or void by application of the law, regulation or following a final judicial or administrative decision, the other clauses shall retain their force and effect. DECATHLON undertakes to do its best to proceed as soon as possible to replace it with a valid stipulation closely reflecting the same spirit of these terms and conditions. The fact that one of the parties did not require the application of any particular clause set out in these terms, in a permanent or temporary manner, shall under no circumstances be construed as a waiver of that clause.
These General Terms and Conditions of Use are governed by Canadian law, unless a more favourable provision is applicable in the country of residence of the User.
In the event of a dispute which has not been resolved amicably, the competent court of jurisdiction shall be that of the defendant's domicile. However, if the action is instituted by the User, the latter has the choice of seizing the jurisdiction of his/her place of residence.
