By accessing the Site and registering prior to using it, as described in Article 2 hereunder, Members acknowledge that they meet the requirements to become Members, as defined in Article 2.1 hereunder, that they have read these Terms of Use, and that they agree to abide by them unreservedly; these Terms of Use consequently constitute a contractual agreement (hereinafter, the “Contract”) between each Member and LEMONADE.

Should a Member refuse to comply with any of the obligations and conditions contained in these Terms of Use, he/she shall be invited not to access the Site nor to use it.

Article 2 - Registration to the service

2.1 Membership

To become a Member, the user must have reached the legal age of majority in his/her country of residence and/or have the capacity to enter into an agreement under the law, and to have accepted these Terms of Use unreservedly.

2.2 Mandatory registration prior to access to the service

To be able to use the Service, Members must first register by completing the Registration Form, accessible online on the Site (hereinafter, the “Form” or “Registration Form”). By completing this Form, the Member acknowledges having read these Terms of Use and accepts abiding by them unreservedly.

By completing the Registration Form, the Member guarantees LEMONADE he/she has provided exact, truthful, current and complete information concerning his/her identity and personal data. He/she specifically commits to provide a working electronic address he/she owns.

If he/she is not acting on his/her own behalf, he/she guarantees he/she is acting on behalf of a physical or moral person who meets the above conditions, whom he/she legally represents or from whom he/she has been granted an explicit mandate to enter into an agreement with LEMONADE, and who has allowed him/her to provide the information required to use the Service, under the conditions defined herein.

The Member commits to update all information concerning him/her regularly in his/her profile, to preserve its accurateness, in his/her own interest, in accordance with the purpose of the Service. Each Member may, at any time, modify the data concerning him/her which he/she deems useful or necessary, by clicking on the “Edit my profile” link accessible in the various sections of his/her profile, including those data concerning his/her registration data, through the “My profile” section accessible from his/her account.

The Member is herby informed that LEMONADE may verify Registration Forms completed over the Site and reserves the right to suspend the provision of the Service to any Member whose registration modalities should violate these Terms of Use, under the conditions set forth in Article 7 hereunder.

Should a Member provide false, improper, expired or incomplete data, LEMONADE reserves the right to suspend or terminate the Contract and his/her account, and to refuse him/her future access to all or part of the Service, under the conditions set forth in Article 7 hereunder.

Should a Member violate applicable laws, and particularly criminal laws, or laws intended to protect third-party rights, or should his/her conduct harm a person’s interests, whosever this may be, including LEMONADE or any company with a legal relation to LEMONADE, or prejudice another Member’s use of the Service, LEMONADE reserves the right to suspend or terminate the Contract and his/her account, without prior notice, and to refuse him/her future access to all or part of the Service, under the conditions set forth in Article 7 hereunder.

Under no circumstance shall LEMONADE be held liable by users or third parties for any error, omission, or inexactness which may arise in the information provided by a Member.

2.3 Member’s account

The Member commits to create only one account for his/her profile.

Each Member will receive, as part of the registration process, at the electronic address provided by him/her at the time of his/her registration, an e-mail for the purpose of activating his/her account. The Service will only be fully accessible once the Member has fully completed the activation process indicated in said email.

The login and password chosen by the Member at the time of the registration allows access to the Service. The Member agrees to try to choose a strong and secure password and to keep his/her password secure and confidential. The Member is solely liable for any use which might be made of his/her login and password, and the sole guarantor of their confidentiality and of any use made of his/her account.

The Member shall inform LEMONADE immediately of any unauthorised use of his/her account, and of any breach of the confidentiality and security of his/her identification means, by completing the contact form available on the Site when you click on the heading “Contact”.

Should LEMONADE have legitimate reasons to believe that the Service’s security has been violated or that the Service is being used improperly due to an unauthorised use of the Member's identification means, it may temporarily suspend the account, in order, among other points, to preserve the integrity of the Site and data, and, should it seem appropriate, require the modification of said identification means. Should the Member wish to modify his/her identification means, he/she needs only to access the Site and modify his/her parameters under the “Settings” section of his/her account.

Should a third party have acquired his/her identification means by the Member’s fault, the said Member shall bear sole liability for any use of these identification means and the use made of the Service as a consequence thereof. Under no circumstance shall LEMONADE be held liable for any loss or damage resulting from a Member’s failure to comply with his/her obligations, as stated in this Article.

In the event of a Member’s death, and upon production of the applicable support documents, the account will be deactivated. Its contents shall only be forwarded to the Member’s beneficiaries following a court ruling.

2.4 Invitation of new members

Should a Member wish to invite a person so that the latter may use the Service, he/she shall provide LEMONADE with the full name and electronic address of said person. He/she shall previously have obtained this person’s consent to the communication of his/her personal data to LEMONADE.

Article 3 - Use of service

Subject to compliance with the registration conditions set forth in Article 2 and the minimum required technical configuration laid out in Article 9, Members may use the Site’s free features.

Generally, when using the Site, Members shall refrain from committing acts of whatever nature, such as the issue, publication, uploading or distribution of data and/or contents which are against the law, undermine public order, or violate the rights of LEMONADE or any third party.

Specifically, when using the Site, Members shall abide by the Site’s rules, which include but are not limited to the following:

In case of a Member’s breach of one or more of these rules, LEMONADE reserves the right to suspend and/or terminate the Contract unilaterally, to block said the account(s) of the Member(s) involved, to delete the litigious messages automatically, to prevent the publication of all or part of the profile of the Member(s), and/or to block his/her/their access to all or part of the Service, whether temporarily or definitively, as set forth in Article 7 hereunder.

Members may report any behaviour or content on the Site, which is evidently contrary to the aforementioned rules, describing it and its location on the Site, as specifically as possible, by completing the contact form available on the Site when you click on the “Contact”button. Members are hereby informed, however, that any abusive description may itself be punished in accordance with the applicable regulation.

Article 4 - Privacy and personal data

All personal data provided by a Member when using the Site and Service are collected legally and fairly. Their purpose is the use of the Site and the provision of the Service, and they may therefore be used by LEMONADE to this end.

The Registration Form found on the Site allows visitors to subscribe to the Site and Service by disclosing certain personal data concerning him/her, such as name and email address, to LEMONADE.

Visitors also have the option to pre-fill the Registration Form automatically using their Facebook account. In that case, LEMONADE shall have access to certain personal data found on this social media such as their name, public profile and email address.

The mandatory or optional nature of the communication of the requested data is mentioned on the Form for each field. Where the communication of the data is mandatory, failure to disclose it will result in the Member’s registration application not being processed.

Following his/her registration, the Member is invited to create his/her profile in accordance to the Service’s purpose. In this context, he/she may communicate additional data such as date of birth, country of origin, gender, education, interests, languages spoken, city of residence or professional skills.

LEMONADE does not communicate the personal data of Members to third parties, except for the data found on each Member’s public profile, in accordance with the Member-determined setting and to the purpose of the Site and Service, and of those cases where the communication of such data is required by applicable laws, particularly at the request of the legal authorities. The Site is fully secured and encrypted.

Members have the right to access, rectify and delete personal data concerning them and processed over the Site, including after their death, and oppose their communication to third parties for justifiable cause.

Personal data concerning the Members are stored by LEMONADE on its servers in the United States of America, to be processed as part of the use of the Service.

Members are informed that some data can be stored after their account has been terminated, in accordance with the applicable legislation.

LEMONADE takes the necessary precautions to ensure that personal data gathered through the Site is not lost, leaked, consulted, modified, or revealed to unauthorized third parties.

Article 5 - Use of cookies

The Site uses “cookie” technology. Cookies are especially useful to facilitate the personalization of the Member’s access to the Service. Specifically, the Site contains a connection cookie allowing Members who so wish to access the Site repeatedly without having to identify themselves each time. To do so, the Member must tick the checkbox corresponding to “Keep me logged in”, found in the “Log in” window which appears when a new connection to the Site is made. By clicking it, Members activate this cookie, and may thereafter access the Site repeatedly during this time without having to identify themselves. Members are hereby informed that, in this case, other users of their computers may access their profile’s management interface and account, since prior authentication is no longer required.

Generally, cookies are harmless to the Member’s computer. The Member may accept or refuse the cookies by configuring his/her browser. The cookies are anonymous and under no circumstance do they gather any personal data; the only data collected are for connection and statistical use.

LEMONADE keeps track, through these cookies, of connections to the Site, and specifically of their origin. This use is made for statistical-analysis purposes as well as enhancement of user experience, and data is destroyed thereafter.

Article 6 - Intellectual property

LEMONADE owns the Site, both its technical components and its graphic, textual or other components, subject to the sole reservation of those contents provided by the Members themselves and of third-party advertisement. More specifically, both the Site and the Service are provided through software and databases designed and developed by LEMONADE, which belong to it, or over which it holds intellectual property rights.

The contents placed on line at the Site by LEMONADE also belong to LEMONADE, subject to the aforementioned reservations. LEMONADE is therefore the sole holder of all intellectual property rights pertaining to the Service, the Site, its contents and the software and databases which ensure its operation, and use of the Site or Service does not grant any Member any right over any of these elements, subject to the rights pertaining to the contents provided by the Members themselves and to the advertisement provided by third parties.

Acceptance of these Terms of Use shall be deemed the Member’s acknowledgement of LEMONADE’s aforementioned intellectual property rights and his/her commitment to respect them.

6.1 User licence of the Site and the Service

LEMONADE grants the Member a non-exclusive, personal and non-transferable license allowing him/her to use the Site and Service, as well as the data they contain, strictly for his/her personal use, and for strictly personal purposes, as per these Terms of Use and, in particular, in accordance with the finality of the Site and Service (hereinafter, the “License”).

By publishing his/her data, information and/or contents on the Site, each Member agrees to their display and availability to the other Members as well as to third parties over said Site, in accordance with the personal settings registered by each Member. Therefore, each Member allows other Members to consult his/her personal data thus made available through his/her profile and to use them to contact him/her. He/she explicitly accepts this use of his/her profile, which goes to the very essence of the Site and Service.

Solely for the ends of providing the Service, Members allow LEMONADE to reproduce, represent, adapt and translate the contents and data provided by them over the Site, under the conditions defined hereunder:

LEMONADE is allowed to reproduce all or part of the contents provided by Members on any digital registration support, current or future, and specifically including, but not limited to, on any server, hard drive, whether removable or not, memory card, or any other equivalent support, in any format and using any process, whether currently known and unknown, so far as proves necessary for all storage, back-up, transmission or downloading operation entailed in the Site’s operation and the provision of the Service.

LEMONADE is allowed to adapt and translate Members’ contents, as well as to reproduce these adaptations on any digital support, current or future, stipulated above, in order to provide the Service, particularly in different languages. This right includes the ability, subject to the respect of the Member’s moral right, to modify the formatting of his/her contents to bring them in line with the Site’s graphic charter and/or make it compatible with its technical performances or applicable formats, in view of their insertion and/or publication on the Site

The purpose of this authorisation is to allow LEMONADE to distribute Members’ contents and data over digital networks and through any communication protocol, and particularly over the Internet, as well as to make them available to the public, in such a way that any person may access them from the location and at the time of his/her own choosing, through the Site, in accordance with the settings defined by each Member.

This license is granted for the entire world and for the duration of the Contract binding the Member to LEMONADE.

Should a manifest violation of intellectual property rights be committed on the Site, the person interested in protecting his/her rights is invited to notify LEMONADE of such a violation, as specifically as possible, by completing the contact form available on the Site when you click on the “Contact” button.

Should such notification remain unanswered for eight (8) days, LEMONADE may terminate the Contract ipso facto, without any formality and subject to any damages it might claim as compensation for any prejudice it might suffer as a result of this situation.

Furthermore, it is reiterated that, in the event of a manifest violation of the applicable regulation or obligations by the Member, particularly those stipulated in Article 3 hereof, consisting, among others, in the use of the Site for spamming purposes, or for the distribution of a message, data or information contrary to public order or likely to undermine the rights of a third party (slander, insults, breach of intellectual property rights, denigration, etc.), of any kind whatsoever, LEMONADE may suspend access to the contents in question and/or delete the account of the Member and terminate the Contract, without prior notification.
