3. Intellectual Property

The general structure as well as the software, texts, images, animated or not, its know-how and all the other elements that make up the website are the exclusive property of the Publisher.

Any representation or reproduction, translation, adaptation, transformation, total or partial of this site and its contents by any person whatsoever, without the express authorisation of the Syndicat Mixte du Musée de la Mine is prohibited and would constitute an infringement punishable by articles L. 335-2 and following of the French Intellectual Property Code (CPI).

Any person who reproduces work on an Internet server without the author’s authorisation to make it available to the public commits an act of counterfeiting (Articles L 335-2 and L 716-9 of the CPI). Counterfeiting is a civil offence (punishable by damages) and a criminal offence (punishable by two years’ imprisonment and a €150,000 fine). Counterfeiting covers all illegal, i.e. unauthorised, reproductions and distribution. The same applies to databases appearing, where applicable, on the website, which are protected by the provisions of the law of 1 July 1998 which transposes into the Intellectual Property Code the directive of 11 March 1996 on the legal protection of databases, and of which the Syndicat Mixte du Musée de la Mine is the producer. The brands and logos appearing on the site are registered trademarks. Any total or partial reproduction of these brands or logos made from the elements of the site without the express authorisation of the Publisher is therefore prohibited under the Intellectual Property Code. Users and visitors of the website may not set up a hyperlink to this website without the express prior authorisation of the Publisher. The Publisher cannot be held responsible for access by users via hypertext links set up within the website to other resources on the network. Any dispute related to the use of the site is subject to French law. The user acknowledges the exclusive jurisdiction of the competent courts of Forbach.
