3- AGREEMENT TO TS&CS AND THEIR MODIFICATION
Any user connection to the site, whether via the homepage or any other page, automatically implies the application of and unconditional agreement to the general Terms and Conditions herein.
The Publisher reserves the right to modify and update the Ts&Cs at any time without justification. Each new version will come into force from the date it goes online on the site, and is considered to be accepted by all users who subsequently connect. Each user is therefore invited to regularly consult the Ts&Cs to remain informed of the latest changes.
Given the international nature of the Publisher’s activity, the site is published in both French and English. The Ts&Cs have therefore been translated into English. In the case of any incoherence between the original French version and the English translation, the French version takes precedence.
4- SCREENING ROOM
The Screening Room service available on the site has been set up by the Publisher to present and promote the company’s catalog of audiovisual works to professionals in the media. Access to and use of this service is strictly reserved for broadcasters, publishers and other diffusers of audiovisual works, wishing to discover content with a view to acquiring rights.
4-1. Access to the Screening Room
Access to the Screening Room is subject to the prior registration of the user, verification of identity, and the creation of a professional account.
During the creation of a professional account, the user must fill in a registration form to provide the Publisher with certain personal information (such as email address, name, title, date of birth, phone number, mailing address, field of activity, etc.). Some of this is obligatory, some optional, as indicated on the form. If the user does not provide any of the obligatory information, their professional account will not be approved.
The user undertakes to submit accurate and up-to-date information.
The Publisher reserves the right to refuse registration to any user who does not respect the conditions set out above, or whose activities or motives do not appear to correspond to the aims of the Screening Room service.
The Publisher will validate the user’s registration request by sending a username and password to the email address provided on the registration form.
These identification elements are strictly personal and confidential. The user is solely responsible for the consequences that may result in giving them to a third-party. If the user notices any unauthorized use of their username or password, or more generally any other breach of security on the site, they undertake to immediately notify the Publisher.
Having connected to the site using the aforementioned elements, the user can access the Screening Room and can view the available content free of charge, under the conditions set out in article 4-2 below.
4-2. Use of the Screening Room
The consultation of the content offered by the Publisher via the Screening Room service is strictly limited to professional and non-commercial use on the part of the user.

The user cannot under any circumstance diffuse or screen the content proposed by the Publisher outside the Screening Room, or use any equipment or software intended to allow such unauthorized diffusion.
The Publisher expressly forbids users of the Screening Room to download content screened with the aim of diffusing extracts or entire works on any video distribution platform, whether legal or illegal.
The user is strictly forbidden from allowing their professional account to be used by third-parties who are not media-industry professionals.
In the case of failure to respect these conditions, the Publisher reserves the right to close the user’s professional account or to suspend its access and use.
