Noosfeer is a content reader, syndicator and aggregator, hereafter referred to as "the Service" (including this Web site and all its applications), provided by Noosfeer SAS, hereafter referred to as "the Provider".

These Terms and Conditions are an agreement that is legally binding between the Provider and any natural or legal person who, as a recipient of the service, uses the Service for any purpose, hereafter referred to as "the User".

These General Terms and Conditions can be subject to additions by the Privacy and Data Protection.

From time to time, Noosfeer may change, remove, add to (including without limitation by way of Additional Terms) or otherwise modify the Terms, and reserves the right to do so in its discretion.

Individual terms and conditions and individual amendments to all terms and conditions are only binding if concluded in written form. Also, waiving this formal requirement can only be concluded in written form.


The Service is provided "as is" and the Provider disclaims any and all representations and warranties, whether express or implied, including - but not limited to - implied warranties of title, merchantability, fitness for any particular purpose or non-infringement. The Provider does not promise any specific results, effects or outcome from the use of the Service.

The Provider does not represent or warrant that the Service and the data and information provided are accurate, up-to-date, complete or reliable. The provider is not responsible or liable for any damage, disadvantage or disprofit, whether material or immaterial, that is caused by the usage or non-usage of the Service. This does not apply to damages, disadvantages and disprofits that are caused by the Provider intentionally, recklessly or negligently.

The Provider reserves the right to change, reduce, interrupt or discontinue the Service or parts of it at any time.

No one has a right to use the Service; the Provider reserves the right to exclude certain Users.

Storage of information

The Service consists largely of information stored on the request of Users.

The Provider neither previews nor automatically reviews such information. Therefore, the Provider cannot have current knowledge of possible infringements caused by information that is stored on the request of Users. The Provider is not liable for such information (Article 14 of Directive 2000/31/EC).

The Provider will, upon obtaining knowledge about or awareness of such infringement, act expeditiously to remove or disable access to such information.

Users may only request storage of such information that they may legally store and publish. Users must not request to store any information that infringes any third party's copyright, trademarks, other intellectual property rights or any other rights.

Users indemnify the Provider from any claims raised by third parties in reference to any information that is stored on request of the respective User. The indemnification covers all adequate expenditures, including court and lawyer fees.

Notice and take down

If a user feels that any information provided within the Service infringes his/her or any third party's rights, he or she shall notify the Provider before taking any legal action.

Upon such notification, the Provider will expeditiously check the objectionable information and will, where necessary, remove or disable access to this information ("notice and take down" process).

The Provider will respond to any such notification within two business days.

Users shall not take any legal action before the Provider has dismissed the notification or two business days have elapsed without response.

The Provider disclaims liability for expenditures, including court and lawyer fees, if legal action is taken earlier.
