3. Description of the AGENT & CO ® services
The Site aims to assist the Members in improving and developing their sales volume through an interconnection between the Agents and the Clients.
Indeed, in order to assist its Members, AGENT & CO ® provides two different solutions: through adverts and through tailor made solutions to connect Members.
The Site only hosts content from ads posted by corporate Members (text, photos, etc.).
In order to access the Services, Visitors must become Members and register by creating an account, with a login and a password, and provide other required data in the registration form.
Registration to the Site is free of charge.
Registered Members undertake to provide accurate and complete information and to update it regularly, and are solely responsible for updating their profiles.
Members shall be solely liable for the use, the security and the confidentiality of their email address and password. The Member has to inform AGENT & CO ® as soon as he notices a misuse of his account or a breach in the security system. Therefore, AGENT & CO ® shall be not held liable for any misappropriation or misuse of Member’s login credentials by third parties.
At the time of the registration, the Members may provide their consent for receiving information from AGENT & CO ®, including but not limited to, the Newsletter. Members may opt-out at any time by selecting the related option in their personal area.
5. Fee-based services
Clients shall pay fee-based Services via specific digital payment services (Paypall and Ogone), which are only accessible to Members of the Site.
AGENT & CO ® provides to corporate Members access to its Directory to find interesting Agents’ profiles (subject to the availability of the service).
Because the costs of setting up and managing these files are unequal, AGENT & CO ® offers various tariffs or free access for certain categories of Members - based on the difficulty and costs of setting up and managing files of persons needed by some particular categories.
A tailor-made offer will be issued further to a specific request.

AGENT & CO ® uses its best efforts to find and to remove offensive content. However, AGENT & CO ® shall not be deemed liable to have cleared any content or assume liability for content submitted by a Member, should AGENT & CO ® at any time, on a discretionary basis, decide to monitor content appearing on the Site.
In the event of valid notification of offensive content or otherwise inappropriate content, AGENT & CO ® will use its best endeavours to remove such content.
AGENT & CO ® reserves the right to report any illicit activities or content to the competent authorities.
