1 – supplying data

Among its services, MSFC offers the Supplier Platform web site to the profession.

Since 2004, the Supplier Platform has inventoried actors in the French fabric and clothing industry and helps put manufacturers, sub-contractors, service providers, material suppliers and order-givers in contact. www.maisondusavoirfaire.com inventories all accessible profiles in a directory on the site.

Making this Supplier Platform data base available is a free service for visitors to the site and is available for a fee (or free depending on certain conditions) for referenced client companies. See General Sales Conditions.

Use of the Supplier Platform
The use of Services is for an unlimited time but MSFC can terminate this at any moment. Visitors and registered members may stop using the services at any time.

Using the services implies acceptance of the Conditions of Use for a purpose that is exclusively informative. Use of the services is done under the user’s sole control and responsibility. MSFC can in no way be held responsible for any type of damages resulting from the interpretation or use of information and/or documents available on the site.

www.maisondusavoirfaire.com will not request the names of visitors nor record names of any person that consults its pages. However, in certain cases, the visitor may be invited to leave personal data. The obligatory or optional character of this data will be indicated, when collected, by an asterisk.

Registration, updating information and access to a personal space for manufacturers, service providers or raw material suppliers
For a manufacturer, service provider or raw material supplier in the context of registering on the Supplier Platform, www.maisondusavoirfaire.com offers the possibility of leaving his publications on the site in Word, JPEG or PDF format and listing information relative to his activity.

By checking the box by the sentence “I have read and accepted the General Conditions for Use” on the bottom of the registration page and then validating this, the Member acknowledges that he is fully informed and responsible for all provisions of the Conditions of Use. The member thus accepts all the conditions described below.

A Personal Space on www.maisondusavoirfaire.com is available to the user member for as long as he wishes. In conformity with the French “Data protection act” of January 6, 1978, he can update, modify or remove data concerning him or the company he represents at any moment.

The user can at any moment add, modify or remove information he wishes to have appear in his Profile, notably his company, contacts, descriptions, photos, images, documents, links to web sites in the context defined to this effect.

If difficulties are met while downloading modifications, the user member will be able to send the modifications by e-mail to msfc@lamodefrancaise.org. If there is no possibility of an internet connection, it is possible to contact our teams at 01 40 15 02 54.

 


To access his Personal Space, the user member will have a login code and password that he determines himself during his first data input. If he loses this login and password, it is possible to retrieve them quickly on the site www.maisondusavoirfaire.com by clicking on the link in the identification zone.

 


Password forgotten: An e-mail containing the password will be sent to the user.

The user member is also informed that he will regularly receive an e-mail to let him modify the information already entered or inform the member of other services proposed by MSFC. He can refuse to receive this regular information by contacting msfc@lamodefrancaise.org


2 – Information on suppliers and service providers

Since the user member is the only judge of the information he decides to publish on his Profile, he agrees when he manages his page:

  • TO SUPPLY EXACT INFORMATION.
  • TO NOT USE THE SITE’S SERVICES TO PERFORM ANY ILLEGAL ACTIVITIES OR ACTIVITIES WITHOUT GOOD MORAL STANDARDS.
  • TO NOT ADVOCATE CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY, INCITE RACIAL HATRED, PEDOPHILIA OR ANY FORM OF VIOLENCE.
  • TO NOT LEAVE ON HIS PROFILE ANY CONTENT CONTRARY TO PUBLIC ORDER OR MORAL STANDARDS, SLANDEROUS OR INJURIOUS CONTENT OR CONTENT OF A CRIMINAL NATURE THAT HARMS INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS AND HONOR, DAMAGES AN INDIVIDUAL’S PRIVATE LIFE OR INCLUDES IMAGES OF PERSONS THAT CAN BE IDENTIFIED, VIOLATES INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY AND COPYRIGHT LAWS PROTECTING RIGHTS THE USER DOES NOT OWN OR THAT HAVE AN INJURIOUS PERSONAL CHARACTER TOWARDS A THIRD PARTY.
  • TO NOT PUBLISH ON THE SITE HYPERTEXT LINKS TO OTHER SITES WHOSE CONTENT WILL BE CONTRARY TO ONE OF THE ABOVE CRITERIA.

MSFC will verify all information entered and supervise its content, it can remove any content that does not respect one of the above criteria. MSFC is also committed to verifying the truth of all data communicated by companies when they put it online in their profile and will continually monitor them to insure the validity of information submitted by the client. However data update is the client’s responsibility and he agrees to connect regularly to make these modifications.

Since the client company’s technical information and contact details have been communicated by the company when it registered, the GFF denies having any responsibility in the case where changes took place without having been informed.

Elsewhere, all information entered is public, as is the member user’s profile and it can be consulted freely by order-givers. After having generated a list of companies in their research, a visitor can contact one or more of the companies selected directly, either by using the connection tool provided on the site or by other means of communication. The sender of the message must indicate his identity to the user member. Outside cases in which it will be restricted by a legitimate authority, the Maison du Savoir-Faire et de la Création cannot reveal the computer coordinates of the sender of a message. In all cases, the Maison du Savoir-Faire et de la Création will not be held responsible for the content of messages received by the user and the use made of visible information.

3 – COMMERCIAL GUARANTEES & RESPONSIBILITIES

MSFC may in no case play the role, or appear to have played, the role of intermediary or agent in a commercial transaction that takes place between an order-giver and company following a consultation of the data base on the Supplier Platform.

The information and/or documents on this site and/or accessible by this site come from sources considered to be reliable. However, this information and/or documents may contain technical inexactitudes and typographical errors and may be modified at any moment or be updated. MSFC reserves the right to correct them after it has become aware of any errors.

User members and visitors acknowledge that GFF will not be held responsible in any capacity, regardless of the legal grounds, for any direct and/or indirect damages relative to the use of services by the user or visitor that result from the use of the site for a connection with a professional or another internet site.

The user member and visitor are responsible for the use they make of the information made available to them by www.maisondusavoirfaire.com in the context of services and must, in consequence, verify being in possession of all the necessary elements for making a decision in keeping with their interests.

Thus, it is up to order-givers and companies with know-how to establish their own financial guarantees concerning their future partners.

A company’s adhesion to the Supplier Platform site is in no way a perennial recognition from MSFC of their services.

The MSFC delivers no technical quality label to clients registered in the Supplier Platform data base. The order-givers must themselves verify the quality, technical abilities, delivery times, manufacturers, service providers or suppliers they contact by the intermediary of the Supplier Platform.
