General principles

In accordance with the provisions on intellectual property, the various elements of the Website such as texts, images, logos, comments and databases remain the property of their respective authors and/or holders for the legal duration of protection and for the whole world.

The usage licence granted to the User only includes the right to reproduce the works consulted for storage for the purposes of representation on a single screen and copies or reproductions strictly reserved for the private use of the User and not intended for collective use. This licence does not allow the User to use, for sale or for any other commercial use, this Website or its contents (listed products, descriptions, prices, use of data, software, graphics, images, texts, photographs, tools, etc.).

The User must not use techniques that allow him/her to copy a brand, a logo or any other information (in particular images, text, models) of which the Silence in the Sound is the owner without its express written agreement. The User must not use meta-tags or any other “hidden” text containing the Silence in the Sound’s name or the Silence in the Sound brand without the Silence in the Sound’s express written consent. Any unauthorised use will terminate the licence that the Silence in the Sound has granted to the User, without prejudice to any liability claims against the User.

Analyses and short quotations justified by the critical, polemical, educational, scientific or informative nature of the work in which they are incorporated are authorised, provided that the name of the author and the source are clearly indicated.

Apart from these exceptions, any reproduction, even partial, any representation, distribution, sale or exploitation in any form whatsoever, electronic or otherwise, is strictly prohibited without the prior consent of the author or his/her successors in title and constitutes an act of infringement implicating the civil and criminal liability of the infringer.
