organisers of this contest against pleas, legal actions or claims which could be brought by any third party for some
reason, on the occasion of the exercise of the rights granted herein and more generally in respect of all the
guarantees and commitments taken in this agreement. Therefore, no participant shall publish or share any photograph
borrowing or using any materials that are protected by the industrial or intellectual property rights belonging to a third
party who would not have given any prior and certified authorisation.
5.2. Moreover, each participant must not publish or share pornographic photographs or some that are contrary to
morals and public order. Hateful, vulgar, racist or xenophobic photographs are also forbidden, as well as any
photographs which could disparage or affect in any way image, private life, honor, reputation and/or consideration of
any person or entity. The organising company expressly reserves the right to rule out, without any justification in the
framework of the contest, any photograph considered as not complying with the validity conditions formulated
hereinabove, or which could harm its image. Every photograph is published under the sole participant’s responsibility.
