The laws and regulations of the French Republic govern the General Terms of Service Athlete.
The General Terms of Service Athlete are drafted in the French language. In the case where they would be translated into one or several languages, only the French text of origin would be relied upon in case of a dispute.
In cases where a dispute arises between the parties in the execution or the interpretation of this Convention, the Parties undertake to try to resolve the issue beforehand in an amicable settlement.
The consumer remains free to enter the jurisdiction of its choice at any time.
The mediation and conciliation are two modes of amicable resolution of conflicts that involve a third party, the Ombudsman and the conciliator.
Mediation is a method of conflict resolution that consists in accompanying the parties and to seek the opinion of a qualified third party, the Ombudsman, a process freely accepted by the Parties. The Ombudsman deals with the files with the two parties, in his office, unlike the conciliator who can process the files with only one of the Parties.
The conciliation consists in the intervention of a third party, the Conciliator of Justice, who, after having listened to the parties and analysed their point of view, offers a solution to resolve their dispute. The last resort before a judicial procedure takes place is to try to obtain the amicable settlement of a dispute. It aims to find a compromise between two opponents who have an interest to reconcile. The conciliators are auxiliary volunteers of Justice, appointed by the first presidents of the Court of Appeal, preferably from among people with a certain level of legal experience. They are responsible, outside of any trial, to help their fellow citizens to settle their disputes and can be seized, without any particular formalities, by any consumer, during consultations they provide at the level of cantons. The task of the conciliators is to introduce the opponents and to help them discover the solution to their dispute. The agreement of the Parties, if it is obtained, can be realised through an agreement that will have the legal value of a contract. The trial judge may render this finding of agreement enforceable by law if so requested by one of the Parties. This settlement must however be accomplished and put into action quickly because the conciliation procedure does not interrupt nor does not suspend the time limits for appeal to justice. To know their places, days and hours of consultations, one must be directed to the Registry of the Court of Appeal or to the town hall or on the Internet on the website of the Ministry of Justice.
In the case of a dispute, the most diligent party may be able to address a registered letter to the other Party with acknowledgment of receipt to solicit a procedure for the amicable resolution of the dispute.
If the User is a consumer subject to French law, he/she can also, if he/she wishes, instruct the National Consumer Ombudsman competent in the field of digital commerce:
Federation of e-commerce et de la vente à distance (FEVAD)
Address : 60 rue la Boétie – 75008 PARIS
The User is informed that the date of referral procedure for the Ombudsman can only take place after having attempted to resolve the dispute directly with AZEOO by a written claim.
The deadline to bring in the Ombudsman is one year from the date of the claim.
If, at the end of a period of 90 days beginning with the date of the first submission of the letter referred to in the preceding paragraph, the parties were unable to agree, the dispute will be then submitted at the initiative of the most diligent party, to the competent courts.
ANY DISPUTE ARISING FROM THE INTERPRETATION OR THE EXECUTION OF THE PRESENT GENERAL TERMS OF SERVICE ATHLETE WILL REPORT EXCLUSIVELY TO THE COMPETENT FRENCH JURISDICTIONS. IF A JURISDICTION MORE FAVORABLE APPLIES IN AN IMPERATIVE WAY TO THE ATHLETE AS A CONSUMER, THEN, BY DEFAULT, THE COMPETENT COURTS WILL BE THOSE DESIGNATED BY THE LAWS, REGULATIONS AND INTERNATIONAL TREATIES IN FORCE. IF A CONFLICT OF JURISDICTION SHOULD ARISE, THE COMPETENT COURT WILL BE CHOSEN BY AZEOO.
