The Company will do its best to resolve the problem but if this is not possible, the Company will refund the Customer and suspend the Customer Account.
After this period, if it is impossible to suspend the Customer Account as mentioned in article 7, the Customer may send a request to the email address contact@cestquoilafrance.com for a suspension of the Subscription on the anniversary date following the request.

Article 4. Subscription

All Orders must be placed on the Site. No dispute must exist between TROISIEME CULTURE and the Customer at the time of the Order. In this case, the Order will not be accepted by TROISIEME CULTURE.
The procedure for subscribing to a Subscription includes the following steps:

Step 1: Create a Customer Account

•Click on the "I subscribe" button.

•Creation of a customer account. The Customer must have a Customer Account in order to finalize the Order. The Customer guarantees to provide accurate and complete information, in particular as regards the authenticity of his/her identity. The Customer shall ensure that this information is updated in the event of any subsequent changes. The Customer must also fill in all the identification information of the child(ren) to whom the Product is addressed: first name, date of birth, mother tongue and email (not mandatory). Once all the information has been filled in, and the Customer has read and accepted the GTCs, the Customer must click on "Validate" to continue the Order process.

Step 2: Verification of the customer's email

•A "confirmation email" is sent to the Customer's email address. The Customer must click on "I validate my email" to continue the Order process. If you do not receive the "email confirmation" email, it is because there is an error in the customer account creation form. Please send us a message on contact@cestquoilafrance.fr

Step 3: Payment of the Subscription

• The Customer connects with his email and password to his Customer Account.

• The customer chooses the currency with which he/she wishes to pay for the Subscription, and is redirected to the payment page of the Partner "Stripe". Payment is made by credit cards as supported by the Partner.

• The customer must click on the "Subscribe" button. By subscribing to this offer, the Customer subscribes to the monthly Subscription service, with tacit renewal for successive one-month periods. The Customer will be charged a first time when placing the initial Order. From then on, unless the Subscription is suspended under the conditions set forth in Article 7, the Customer will be debited the amount specified in the initial Order, automatically each month on the anniversary date of the first Order.

By providing his/her banking information at the time of the Order, the Client authorizes the Company to debit his/her credit card for the amount of the price indicated. By providing his/her banking information, the Customer warrants that he/she is of legal age, that he/she is the legal holder of the card to be debited and that he/she is legally entitled to use it. The Customer uses the Partner's direct debit method: Stripe (https://stripe.com/fr/payments/payment-methods-guide#cartes) which is a secure service provided by a third party to the Company, subject to its own contractual conditions over which the Company has no control (https://stripe.com/payment-terms/legal).

The Company reserves the right to use the Payment Partner of its choice and to change it at any time. In the event of an error or inability to debit the card, the sale shall be immediately cancelled by operation of law and the Order cancelled. The Company may contact the Client to request additional documents in order to execute the payment of the Order. The Company may rely on the information provided by the Order analysis system. The supply of the requested documents is necessary for the Company to issue the Order. In order to combat credit card fraud, the Company's customer service department may perform a visual verification of the means of payment. In case of fraudulent use of his bank card, the Customer is invited, as soon as he notices this use, to contact us, without prejudice to the steps to be taken by the Customer with his bank.

In case of rejection of payment by credit card, the Subscription will be suspended. You will be informed by email of the rejection of the said payment and consequently of the suspension of your Subscription. We therefore invite you to regularize your situation as soon as possible. If within 10 calendar days of being informed of the rejection of the payment no action has been taken on your part to rectify your situation, we will proceed with the termination of your Subscription after having informed you by email. From then on, in order to be able to take advantage of your Subscription again, you must reactivate your Subscription within 6 months, by going to "My account", "Reactivate my subscription".

Step 4: Payment Confirmation

• The customer is redirected to the payment confirmation page. The customer will receive an email confirming his registration.

• The customer will receive an email confirming his registration. The contract between the customer and TROISIEME CULTURE will only be concluded when the customer receives a payment confirmation email from TROISIEME CULTURE.

• The first video is available in "My videos".

Article 5. Price of the product on sale on the site

The price of the Subscription appearing on the Site is indicated in euros. The Customer can then choose the currency he/she wishes from a list. The price of the Product is indicated inclusive of all taxes, it being specified that the Product ordered is invoiced at the price in effect at the time the Order is registered.

The price of the Product offered on the Site may be modified by TROISIEME CULTURE at any time and the modification will then be expressly indicated to the Customer before any new Order. The applicable prices are those in effect at the time of the Customer's Order, and the Customer may not invoke any other prices prior or subsequent to the Order.

The Company reserves the right to propose time-limited introductory offers, promotional offers or price reductions on its Product. Coupons may be subject to special conditions, and are in any case strictly personal to their beneficiary and usable only once.

Article 6. Right of withdrawal

In accordance with the law, the right of withdrawal does not apply to digital content provided on an intangible medium (videos) and Subscription contract for these services whose execution has begun with the agreement of the Customer and for which the Customer has waived his right of withdrawal.

Article 7. Suspension of the Subscription

The Customer can suspend at any time his Monthly Subscription without commitment with monthly debit, by going to his Customer Account available on the Site, by clicking on "My account", "Suspend my Subscription".
Suspension will be effective on the anniversary date of the Subscription. Any month started is due. The Subscription will terminate at the end of the current payment period.
The customer can therefore still receive videos until the anniversary date of the Subscription before suspension.
The suspension of your Subscription will result in the cessation of the availability of new videos in " My videos ", but the Customer Account will not be deactivated. The Customer remains a member of the Site and continues to access "My Videos" to see the videos already received for 1 year. If the Customer re-subscribes within 1 year, he will receive new videos.

It is expressly agreed that TROISIEME CULTURE reserves the right to suspend any Subscription taken out by the Customer, depending on the seriousness of the actions in question, in the event of non-compliance by the Customer with the obligations entered into under the terms of the Contract, and in particular any incident of payment of the price of an Order and/or the provision of false information when creating a Customer Account.

Article 8. Reactivation of the Subscription

The Customer may reactivate his Subscription within one year of its suspension by going to his Customer Account available on the Site, clicking on "My account", "Reactivate my Subscription".

The Customer will then have to check the elements registered on his Customer Account, and proceed to the payment as indicated in step 3 of Article 4.

Article 9. Deletion of the customer account

The customer may request the deletion of his customer account by contacting TROISIEME CULTURE and providing proof of his identity:
• by mail to the following address : Troisième Culture, 27 allée du 6 juin 1944, 91410 Roinville

The Company reserves the right to refuse any Order from a Customer with whom there is such a dispute, even if the Customer uses a new Customer Account.

The Company will delete any Client Account that has been suspended for 1 year. The Client will no longer have access to his Client Account and to " My Videos ".
