The entire Website and all of its constituent elements, i.e., the software and content such as text, graphics, videos, animated or still images, sounds, icons, processes, products, technology, know-how, graphics, downloadable documents, trademarks, logos and domain names are the exclusive property of DCI or its licensors.

Any total or partial use, copy, representation, reproduction, publication, downloading, display, transmission, distribution and/or modification of the Website without DCI’s express permission is prohibited and would constitute an infringement sanctioned by Article L. 122-4 of the French Intellectual Property Code, subject to being expressly authorised by French law (including under Article L122-5 of the French Intellectual Property Code).

Similarly, it is strictly forbidden to use or reproduce the name DCI and/or its logo, as well as any version derived from them. These trademarks/logos are protected by copyright and are registered with Intellectual Property offices.

This restriction also applies to any trademarks and/or logos of DCI’s commercial partners appearing on the Website. Certain names mentioned may be protected by third party trademark rights, without any mention of such protection being necessarily indicated.

Any total or partial representation of these databases without DCI’s express permission would constitute an infringement.
