ADDITIONAL CONDITIONS


Welcome to BeauCoupPlus Web sites!

This agreement outlines all terms and conditions governing usage of the services provided by the FindMuchMore.com, BeaucoupPlus.com, BeaucoupPlus.ca Web sites and additional sites under BeaucoupPlus ownership (hereafter referred to as BeaucoupPlus or We).


GENERAL CONDITIONS:

Acceptance of User Conditions:

PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE DOCUMENT CAREFULLY: Whenever a user (hereinafter the User or You) browses BeaucoupPlus Web sites, opens an account, purchases a product, downloads content (text, images, software, audio/video extracts or others), participates in blogs or chat rooms or consults or places free or billable ads, he agrees to be bound by all terms and conditions outlined in this agreement. The services provided are conditional upon the acceptance of general conditions, conditions specific to various services offered, other terms and our Policy Regarding Confidentiality and the Protection of Personal Information.

IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO BE BOUND BY THIS AGREEMENT, YOU MAY NOT BROWSE BEAUCOUPPLUS WEB SITES, NOR BENEFIT FROM THE SERVICES PROVIDED.

We urge you to read our User Conditions, which are permanently displayed on our Web sites, on a regular basis, since they may be revised at any time and become effective immediately, without prior notice. Should, however, user rights undergo any major changes, we will advise registered users via email or post a warning on the Web site. The user is deemed to have agreed to the latest user conditions by dint of using the services provided.

The User Conditions are deemed to be in effect and agreed to whenever users avail themselves of our services, regardless of whether or not they are registered users.


End of contract or cancellation:

For registered users, the agreement remains in effect as long as the account is open AND/OR past due, and for as long as the conditions remain unfulfilled.

Registered users may, at any time, close their accounts, on their own, for any reason, and cease using BeaucoupPlus services.

BeaucoupPlus also reserves the right to suspend service usage or close accounts without notice, at any time, in the event of fraudulent usage of the site or non-compliance with our rules.


Applicable law and compliance:

BeaucoupPlus User Conditions and its Policy for the Protection of Personal Information are governed and exclusively interpreted according to applicable Canadian and Québec laws with which you fully agree to comply. Only Québec and Canadian courts of the district of Laval or Montréal, Québec, Canada are qualified to adjudicate any disputes that between the parties, regardless of citizenship and place of residence.

Moreover, the parties assent, finally and conclusively, without condition, to the judicial jurisdiction of courts qualified to hear appeals from the court of first instance.

You acknowledge that the use you make of our Web sites and services (including classified ad service, shopping baskets, blogs or chat rooms) is deemed to have taken place entirely and exclusively within the territory of the Province of Québec (Canada).

In the event any of these conditions is declared null, invalid, illegal or unenforceable as a result of a legal decision, all additional User Conditions remain in force if the general organization of the agreement is not entirely overturned. The titles or paragraph headings are provided solely for reference purposes and do not define, limit, interpret or describe, in any way, the paragraph content.

In the event of any difference or ambiguity regarding this agreement or between the French and English versions of the User Conditions, the contract is to be interpreted in the consumer’s favour.

D’autre part, en cas de divergence ou d’ambiguïté dans la présente entente ou entre la version française et la version anglaise de la présente entente, le contrat doit être interprété en faveur du consommateur


Arbitration:

Any disagreements regarding our User Conditions may, with the free agreement of both parties, be submitted for arbitration, in the event settlement cannot be reached through negotiations between the parties or their representatives, in compliance with the Code of Civil Procedure of Québec, Canada. If need be, arbitration will be conducted in French, and take place in Laval, Québec (Canada).

Territory:

The products and services provided by BeaucoupPlus may vary from one country to the next and may not be available under the same conditions everywhere.

Access to services provided:

Our services are reserved exclusively for individuals who are legally authorized to enter into contracts and conclude transactions.

Minors or those 18 years and under are not authorized to use the site and our services are not offered to them.

Parents are also urged to closely supervise use of the Internet by their children and teenagers in order to avoid situations where they use the BeaucoupPlus Web sites of their parents or open accounts by claiming to be of age. We also urge parents to explain the inherent risks and perils of Internet use to their children, in order to avoid them becoming victims of harassment, fraud or offensive or criminal acts. Use of blocking or parental control software may also be advisable in certain cases, at the parent’s discretion.

Our services are not available to users whose account has been suspended as a result of illegal or fraudulent usage, or in contravention of BeaucoupPlus User Conditions.

Those who do not qualify are prohibited from using our Web sites.



Password confidentiality:

Both your account and your profile are protected by a password you select when you register. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and must not reveal it to third parties or allow them to use it to access your personal account.

You are fully responsible for transactions or other activities conducted via your account or through the use of your password. BeaucoupPlus cannot be held responsible for unauthorized usage or for any loss or damages resulting from negligence or failure to comply with the security regulations set out in the User Conditions.

We recommend using a password at least 8 characters long (an unusual word and numbers) and to change it periodically for increased security. Should you forget your password, the system can email a reminder to you. Should that occur, you are responsible for changing it.

Please note that BeaucoupPlus will never ask you, via telephone or email or any other means, to reveal your password or any other personal information. Should you receive a request of this kind, do not respond to it and advise our Privacy Officer.

If you share your computer with someone else or access the Net in a public place, remember to close your session and the browser window before leaving the computer to avoid identity theft.

You are also responsible for not ceding or transferring your account to a third party and of advising our Privacy Officer via email as soon as you become aware of the fraudulent use of your identity, account or password.



Personal information:

Protecting the privacy and personal information of registered users is one of our main priorities. As such, most of the measures, conditions or restrictions outlined in the User Conditions are solely designed to make browsing our sites or using our services as pleasant and safe as possible.

During registration, BeaucoupPlus collects only the minimum amount of personal information needed for the proper functioning and security of the Web site.

No personal information is collected without the knowledge of the users, and they themselves enter whatever information they wish to reveal. Users are also asked to update their personal information whenever they use the site.

Users are solely responsible for the accuracy of the information they provide, the content they distribute and the consequences of the information disseminated via the Web sites, blogs, chat rooms, classified ads or other BeaucoupPlus services

For additional information, users are urged to become familiar with the BeaucoupPlus Policy Regarding Confidentiality and the Protection of Personal Information included with this document and an integral part of it.


Third-party precautionary measures:

Even though BeaucoupPlus does its utmost to avoid such an eventuality, some of the information or ads submitted by other users may be offensive, inaccurate, deceptive, harmful or conceal criminal intent. We therefore urge you to exercise caution and common sense when dealing with third parties, and take steps to confirm the identity, solvency or honesty of the former beforehand.


BeaucoupPlus products and services:

BeaucoupPlus.com is a multi-lingual site that will gradually offer a vast array of products and services, both free of charge and for a fee, to private individuals, professionals, merchants and businesses.

A classified ad service is also available to users who wish to publish their own ads or simply consult those placed by others. That being the case, our role is limited to posting the ads of registered users. We do not intervene in transactions between buyers and sellers, nor do we evaluate the goods and services offered by advertisers. As such, we have no control over the truth or accuracy of the ads placed by users, nor the quality, security or legality of the products or services offered by the former, nor do we guarantee them in any way. BeaucoupPlus does not guarantee the ability of the buyer or seller to respect their commitments or to conclude transactions.

BeaucoupPlus and its registered users are fully independent entities, each party acting in their own names, on their own behalf. Neither the fact that they are registered users, nor the User Conditions themselves, create any links of partnership, common business relations, subordination, employee/employer relations or franchiser/franchisee between BeaucoupPlus and registered users.

THE OPINIONS EXPRESSED BY THE USERS OF OUR BLOGS, CHAT ROOMS OR OTHERS DO NOT NECESSARILY REPRESENT THOSE OF BEAUCOUPPLUS AND ITS SUBSIDIARIES. BEAUCOUPPLUS DOES NOT ENDORSE ANY OPINION OR COMMENT EXPRESSED BY THIRD PARTIES ON ITS SITES, AND ASSUMES NO RESPONSIBILITY IN THIS REGARD.



Direct sale of products by BeaucoupPlus:

The products, and information about the products sold directly by BeaucoupPlus, may be changed, modified or deleted at any time, without notice.

BeaucoupPlus reserves the right to limit quantities of certain products and services sold directly by BeaucoupPlus or purchased on its sites.

The colour of the products displayed varies according to the type of screen you use and may differ slightly from the actual colour of the products sold.


BeaucoupPlus will do its utmost to send or deliver the products ordered as quickly as possible, within the promised deadlines or offer a full refund should this time period elapse.

Due to export-related regulations, our products are available solely to Canadian citizens and may not be sold outside Canada.


Downloads or outright sale of software:

The software available on the BeaucoupPlus Web sites is sold as a service and may only be used for information purposes.

Any software, documents, images, sound/video clips purchased or downloaded from this Web site may not be copied without written authorization from BeaucoupPlus.


Sales conditions and non-reimbursement policy:

This section outlines payment terms and conditions for products or services sold directly by BeaucoupPlus to registered users. It does not cover transactions between users of our classified ad service, in which we have no involvement.

Due to unpredictable market fluctuations, errors or omissions that may occur, we reserve the right to modify or revise the price of products or services sold directly by BeaucoupPlus at all times, without notice. Current prices are displayed on our sites at all times (plus taxes and delivery charges) and our products and services are billed according to the base price in effect at the time the order is processed.

Credit card is the only accepted method of payment. We accept all major credit cards (Visa, Master Card, American Express) and all transactions must be paid for online via PayPal, our payment gateway.

WHEN YOU PLACE AN ORDER, YOU EFFECTIVELY AUTHORIZE BEAUCOUPPLUS TO DEBIT YOUR CREDIT CARD FOR THE AMOUNT OF THE PURCHASE AND TO ADD SHIPPING CHARGES AND APPLICABLE CANADIAN TAXES, ACCORDING TO YOUR PLACE OF RESIDENCE.

We do not charge tax on products shipped outside the country; however, duty and local taxes may be charged, upon receipt, by your local customs authorities or postal service.

The prices and tariffs in effect are calculated in Canadian currency (CAD) and payable in Canadian currency or the equivalent amount in Euros (EUR) or American currency (USD) as calculated by our currency conversion system. Due to constantly fluctuating exchange rates, any prices or rates quoted in Euros or American dollars may vary daily, and you must expect and accept slight variations between the rates provided by our currency conversion system and those used by your financial institution.

You agree to receive BeaucoupPlus invoices in electronic format only. A detailed invoice will be available online and a link to this invoice will be emailed to you following each transaction, confirming the price of each item ordered and applicable taxes and delivery charges. The amount is payable, in full, in a single payment, at the time of your order.

The user is solely responsible for bank card payments for the products and services purchased. BeaucoupPlus cannot be held responsible for problems related to payment or charges resulting from inadequate functioning of the payment gateway or service used by the financial institution.

IMPORTANT: PROVIDED BEAUCOUPPLUS FULFILS ITS COMMITMENTS, ALL SALES ARE FINAL AND NOT ELIGIBLE FOR REIMBURSEMENT, ONCE THE TRANSACTION HAS BEEN PROCESSED ON ITS WEB SITES.


Transaction security:

BeaucoupPlus considers the protection of information on its Web sites a priority and, for your security and our own, we will take all necessary precautions to safeguard any information and transactions that take place via our Web sites.

When you use PayPal or WorldPay gateway, you transmit your credit card or bank information directly to the financial institution. As such, BeaucoupPlus never has access to this information.

We use SSL (Secure Socket Layer) technology to transmit your personal information and safeguard your online credit card transactions. Any information exchanges made through us are encrypted in 128 bits, and safeguarded in order to authenticate our servers and ensure the integrity and confidentiality of the exchanged information.

For enhanced protection, look for a padlock icon at the bottom of the screen and make sure the URL address begins with https (make sure there is an s at the end) before sending any confidential information.

All the previously described measures are designed to enable you to conduct your transactions with complete security and peace of mind.


Force majeure, piracy or technical problems:

Even though we take all necessary precautions to render our sites secure and operational, and even though we use advanced technology, BeaucoupPlus cannot guarantee that all the information you submit will be fully protected from third-party intrusion. Nor can we guarantee that our systems or servers will consistently be free of defects, crashes or programming errors or that our services will not be temporarily interrupted, from time to time, for repairs, maintenance or other reasons beyond our control.

As a result, BeaucoupPlus, its owners, administrators or employees cannot be held responsible for defaulting on one or more of its contractual obligations, any invasion of privacy, damages or loss of income that result from events beyond its control or a force majeure. This includes any instances already recognized by jurisprudence and, among others, any natural disasters, acts of war, riots, breach of public peace, fires, floods, earthquakes or other disasters, including strikes, lock-outs, in addition to electrical or technical problems, not attributable to the parties, that prevent communications or access to the site.



Prohibited actions:

When using this site you agree not to engage in any of the following unacceptable activities:
  • Failure to respect existing laws or regulations (including, but not limited to, those governing consumer protection, unfair competition, export laws, discrimination or false advertising)
  • Contravene our regulations regarding prohibited ad content.

  • Publish duplicate versions of the same ad.
  • Copy, modify or illegally distribute any content belonging to third parties without obtaining written authorization from the parties concerned.

Prohibited solicitation:

BeaucoupPlus takes all necessary precautions to ensure that its users are not inconvenienced by ads or spam. We therefore avoid publishing email addresses. This type of unauthorized solicitation of our clients is strictly prohibited, under penalty of legal proceedings.

Trademark and copyright:

All content elements (texts, images, information, codes, software, sound/video clips or others) whether this content is stored in BeaucoupPlus databases, displayed on its Web sites or available through the former, are protected by copyright and are the exclusive property of BeaucoupPlus or third parties.

Non-compliance:

In the event of a failure to comply with our User Conditions or Policy for the Protection of Personal Information, BeaucoupPlus reserves the right to issue warnings, to revise or delete inadmissible ads, to temporarily or permanently suspend privileged access to the service, close the account or impose any other penalties it deems appropriate. Moreover, any serious or deliberate contravention of the User Conditions may also expose the user to legal proceedings and incur his civil responsibility. BeaucoupPlus reserves the right to exercise any other rights or legal recourse at its disposal against the user(s) at fault.

BeaucoupPlus may monitor and control all areas of its Web sites, including the content of classified ads, blogs, chat rooms or other intra-user communications in order to ensure compliance with its user conditions.

Suggestions, comments or complaints:


our satisfaction is important to us. Should you have any complaints, suggestions or comments, please email them to us at the following address:

Your comments

You agree, however, to waive any intellectual property rights, worldwide, on any ideas or suggestions before submitting them to us, acknowledge that they are not confidential and were in no way solicited by us. You also assign to BeaucoupPlus a non-exclusive, perpetual, irrevocable right that may be subject to a sub-licence authorizing us to use, divulge, modify, translate, reproduce or market as it sees fit, any content provided, with no restrictions, royalties or additional contractual obligations on its part.

USER CONDITIONS FOR THE CLASSIFIED AD SERVICE


The user acknowledges that the information he or she provides BeaucoupPlus in the classified ad section is neither confidential nor exclusive, does not contravene the rights of any individual or entity and may be published or displayed without restriction on the sites of BeaucoupPlus or other affiliated sites.


Approval and impartial display of ads:


The ads submitted are, depending on the category and content, manually or automatically approved by BeaucoupPlus prior to being displayed on the site.

Each approved ad is placed in listhead in the category and sub-category consistent with the ad content. Each ad subsequently approved in a similar sub-category is also placed in listhead. Previous ads are then shifted to the bottom of the list.

Payable options are available for moving old ads to the top of the list, on a daily, weekly or random basis or featuring them, on a random or rotating basis, on the site’s home page. We cannot guarantee how long an ad will remain at the top of a list since other users may submit ads subsequently, or opt for the automatic repositioning option as well.

BeaucoupPlus cannot be held responsible in the event two or more competing ads are situated in close proximity to each other.


Duration of classified ad exposure:


The length of time the ads are displayed online varies according to rates, current promotions or options selected by the users. BeaucoupPlus reserves the right to revise rates, promotions or the display duration of new ads as it sees fit and without notice.

BeaucoupPlus does, however, agree to respect the display duration of ads already online, as agreed when they were put online OR as it sees fit, to reimburse the amount paid by the user, pro rated according to the number of display days left.

Throughout the duration of the online display, the user may, at no charge, revise the text, title or content of their own ads as they see fit, while respecting the spirit of the message. Users may not, however, change the category or sub-category of their ads. Revised ads are re-submitted for BeaucoupPlus approval prior to being re-displayed online, without extending the total display duration agreed to originally.

Payable options are also available to users at any time for promoting their ads. That being the case, the display duration will be extended, free of charge, for the total number of days agreed to originally.

ONCE SUBMITTED, THE ADS MAY NOT BE COMPLETELY DELETED BEFORE EXPIRY, OR BENEFIT FROM ANY REIMBURSEMENT. The users may however, mask their ads, on their own initiative and free of charge, as they become unnecessary.

As the expiry dates approaches, at the discretion of BeaucoupPlus, an expiry notice may be sent automatically to users to inform them.

Expired ads will be deleted automatically from the site within a few days following the expiry date. Since we do not store expired ads, we cannot recuperate and re-display them. We therefore strongly recommend keeping a copy in your personal files, if need be.


Prohibited content:


You agree to comply with existing Canadian laws and avoid submitting or publishing ads whose content (text, images, sound extracts or others) contravenes said laws or those in effect in your place of residence.

The following content is prohibited on BeaucoupPlus Web sites

  • Any ad containing content of an illegal, immoral, obscene, pornographic or paedophilic nature; those that are in poor taste, offensive, threatening, violent, slanderous, disparaging, hateful, racist or that may contain any other form of discrimination.
  • Any ad that may incite violence, hatred, fraud, arms trafficking, alcohol, illegal drugs, or incite people to commit any other illegal activities, in any form whatsoever.
  • Ad of a fraudulent, false, deceitful or inaccurate nature or ads that deliberately omit important facts.
  • Any ads whose content or publication contravenes intellectual property rights (including copyright, patents or industrial secrets) court orders (including non-publication notices) or the privacy, confidentiality or property of third parties.
  • Any ad offering stolen or counterfeit merchandise, drugs or other illegal substances or products/articles governed by controlled possession/distribution laws such as prescription medications, alcohol, tobacco products, police uniforms, military arms or ammunition that are subject to restricted authorization or prohibited on Canadian soil, etc...
  • Any ad offering shares (stock certificates, bonds or others) identity papers, permits, demerit points or articles (baby carriages) whose sale is restricted or prohibited under existing laws or regulations.
  • Any ad offering health/welfare products claiming magical or miraculous cures.
  • Toute annonce proposant la participation à un système de ventes pyramidales ou tout autre système de vente interdit au Canada.
  • Any ad suggesting participation in a pyramid sales scheme, or any other sales schemes prohibited in Canada.
  • Any ad that directly or indirectly offers prostitution services or sexual relations with minors.
  • Any ad offering animals whose sale, possession, import or export is prohibited in Canada.
  • Any ad proposing the purchase or sale of human organs or other parts of the human body.
  • Any ad promoting a site that is in direct competition with the BeaucoupPlus classified ad service, an auction site, or one selling products or services in competition with those sold by BeaucoupPlus.
  • Any ad containing corrupted data, viruses, worms or any other computer software aimed at damaging or compromising the operation, integrity or security of our computer system, servers or data bases or that would test its vulnerability, or make it possible to secretly intercept the personal data or information of BeaucoupPlus, its clients or other users.
  • Any ad making improper use of key words or those whose title, images or advertised trademarks are not consistent with the description of the ad or the sub-category selected.
  • Any ad incurring our responsibility or using unfair competition practices against BeaucoupPlus or any third party.

You may use your company logo on your ad, provided you are legally entitled to do so, are in compliance with laws and regulations governing trademarks and do not damage the company concerned.

You are not permitted to include links in the ad title or description, unless you have paid applicable charges.

In order to prevent spamming, the display of email addresses is also prohibited. Other users may communicate with you via our messaging service, integrated at the bottom of each ad.

In addition, our hosting service provider formally prohibits us from agreeing to publish material, images or videos intended for adults. As such, we cannot offer the following categories: Adult Entertainment, Erotic Massage Service, Escort Services or other adult services. We therefore suggest you refer to adult-content Web sites.

The list provided is intended as a guide and should not be considered complete.


Merchant compliance with tax laws and the Consumer Protection Act


The goods available on BeaucoupPlus Web sites may be advertised by private individuals or merchants; the latter must display their merchant status and comply with existing tax regulations, in addition to the Consumer Protection Act, with regard to guarantees, remote sales, prohibited business practices or others.


Re-classification of ads:


Users must place their ads in the correct categories and sub-categories and BeaucoupPlus reserves the right to move them to another location, without notice, or to reject those that cannot be placed in any of the available categories.


Right to censor non-complying ads and policy of non-reimbursement:


BeaucoupPlus does not exercise total control over the ad content and advertisers are solely responsible for content submitted. Users are urged to use our notification system to report any illegal, offensive or false advertising or those that fail to respect trademarks, copyright or the user conditions governing this site.

BEAUCOUPPLUS RESERVES THE RIGHT TO REVISE OR DELETE ANY AD, COMMENT OR OTHER CONTENT ELEMENT NOT IN COMPLIANCE, WITHOUT REIMBURSEMENT OR PRIOR NOTICE.

This right of censure is applicable to both free and billable advertising and is an option, not an obligation on our part.

At its discretion, BeaucoupPlus may also delete, without notice, any identical ad, published in duplicate, or greater quantity, in the same category or sub-category.

ADDITIONAL CONDITIONS:

These General User Conditions, the User Conditions for Services Offered, the Policy for the Protection of Personal Information in addition to any other document referred to in this document, constitute the entire agreement between you and BeaucoupPlus and replace any prior agreement.

Tolerance on the part of BeaucoupPlus, or failure to insist on the strict application of its User Conditions, in no way means that we waiver any clauses or rights whatsoever, or that we surrender the right to make good our claim at a later date.

YOU AGREE TO ALLOW BEAUCOUPPLUS FREELY AND AS A MATTER OF RIGHT TO TRANSFER THIS AGREEMENT TO A THIRD PARTY IN THE EVENT OF AN ACQUISITION OR THE MERGER OF BEAUCOUPPLUS WITH THIS THIRD PARTY.
