Each of the Parties undertakes to comply, as far as it is concerned, with all legal and regulatory obligations incumbent upon it in terms of the protection of personal data, in particular Law 78-17 of January 6, 1978 in its latest amended version known as the Loi Informatique et Libertés and Regulation EU 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of April 27, 2016 (the “Applicable Regulations”).

The Member also guarantees that the persons concerned have consented to the processing of their personal data by LEMLIST, if the collection of such consent is required by the Applicable Regulations. LEMLIST declines all responsibility for the processing carried out by the Member prior to the transmission of the Prospects' data to LEMLIST.


The Program does not affect the pre-existing intellectual property rights of LEMLIST.

Any communication elements, systems, software, structures, infrastructures, databases and content of any kind used by LEMLIST during its business and communicated to the Member for the purpose of performing its obligations under the Program are protected by all intellectual property rights or database producers' rights in force. 

Any disassembly, decomplication, decryption, extraction, reuse, copying and, more generally, any act of reproduction, representation, distribution and use of any of these elements, in whole or in part, when such acts are not made necessary by the performance of the Program, or when they have not been previously authorized by LEMLIST, are strictly prohibited and may be subject to legal action.

The Member shall only be granted a license to use the materials of LEMLIST to which it may have had access, or which will be transmitted to it by LEMLIST, for the duration of its Membership and for the sole purpose of performing the Rules of the Program. 


The Member undertakes to keep strictly confidential all documents and information of a legal, commercial, industrial, strategic, technical or financial nature relating to LEMLIST of which he may have become aware during his Membership, and not to divulge them without the prior written consent of LEMLIST.

The Member undertakes not to use them for any purpose other than commercial prospecting and to destroy them or return them to LEMLIST, at its request. 

This obligation does not extend to documents and information:

This obligation of confidentiality extends to all employees, collaborators, trainees, directors and agents of the Member, as well as to its affiliated consultants and co-contractors, to whom documents or confidential information may only be transmitted if they are bound by the same obligation of confidentiality as that set out herein.

This obligation will continue to apply for a period of 5 years following the termination of the Member’s Membership, for whatever reason.

14. Social Regulation 

The Member must provide LEMLIST with the following documents, by email at lemlistpartners@lempire.co, as soon as the total amount of his commissions is at least 5,000 euros excluding VAT, and every 6 months if the Member’s Membership continues beyond this amount, until its end:

  • A document attesting to the company's registration dated less than 3 months (identification card in the case of registration in the Trade Register, K or K bis extract in the case of registration in the Companies Register);

  • Not to resort to concealed work.

15. Intuitu Personae

The Membership is deemed to have been entered into in consideration of the person of the Member, and as such, the Member shall not delegate or assign any of its rights hereunder, nor entrust a third party with the performance of all or part of its obligations, without the prior written consent of LEMLIST.


It is expressly agreed that neither Party may use the provisions of the Program to claim, in any way, the status of agent, representative or employee of the other Party, nor bind the other Party with respect to third parties.

Under the terms hereof, no particular legal structure is formed between the Parties, each retaining its full autonomy, its responsibilities and its own clientele.


In accordance with the provisions of Article 1218 of the Civil Code, no Party may be held liable for a failure to perform its contractual obligations if this failure is due to an event beyond the control of the Parties and constitutes force majeure.

Force majeure is understood to mean the occurrence of an event that has the characteristics of unpredictability, irresistibility and exteriority to the Parties that are usually recognized by French law and courts. This includes strikes, terrorist activities, riots, insurrections, wars, governmental actions, natural disasters or a defect attributable to a third-party telecommunication provider.

The Party prevented from doing so must inform the other Party as soon as possible, indicating the nature of the case of force majeure. The Parties shall meet in order to determine together the most appropriate means of mitigating, if possible, the consequences of the event(s) of force majeure.

If the case of force majeure lasts for more than one month, LEMLIST may terminate the Membership of the Member, as of right, without any judicial formality, without prior notice and without any right to compensation of any kind whatsoever, by any written means with immediate effect.

If, as a result of a case of force majeure, the Member is prevented from fulfilling only part of its contractual obligations, it shall remain responsible for the performance of those obligations that are not affected by the case of force majeure, as well as for its payment obligations.

As soon as the case of force majeure ceases, the Member shall immediately inform LEMLIST and resume performance of the affected obligations within a reasonable period.


The Rules are subject to French law and shall be governed and interpreted in accordance with that law.

In the event of a dispute between the Parties concerning their validity, interpretation or performance, the Parties shall endeavour to settle their dispute amicably. In the absence of an agreement within one month of the first notification by any means in writing sent by one Party to the other concerning the dispute concerned, the latter shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of Paris (France), even in the event of multiple defendants and third-party claims.
