Points allow Users to retrieve Items and obtain Offers from our Partners.

Points do not in any way represent a value that can be cashed in or exchanged with the Company and are not intended to be used in any way as virtual currency or outside the Platform.
Points are for one-time use only and cannot be recovered once used. They are awarded to Users as follows:
• Any new User will initially have 5 Points,
• Users earn 3 Points after completing all the information in their profile,
• Users earn 2 Points after adding a profile picture,
• A Donor earns the number of Points he has allocated to an Item once that Item has actually been donated through the Platform, subject to double confirmation (the Receiver sends the confirmation code to the Donor),
• Users receive points when they upgrade to a higher Badge:
From Newbie to Beginner, you get 5 points.
From Beginner to Enthusiast, you get 15 points
From Enthusiast to Expert, you get 30 points
From Expert to Serial Partager, you get 50 points
The Points thus obtained, if they are not consumed, are valid for the entire period during which the User has an active account on the Platform. In the event of early termination of the account, pursuant to article 8.3 below, the deletion of the User's account will result in the definitive deletion of all the User's Points, without compensation of any kind. A subsequent re-registration of the member will not allow him/her to recover the lost Points.

8.4. Responsibility and commitments of the company Partage
The Company shall in no way be held responsible for the content of the advertisements published by the Donors and gives no guarantee, express or implied, in this respect.
The Company is a third party to the correspondence and relations between the Donors and the Users, and therefore excludes any liability in this respect.
On the other hand, the Company may take cognizance of messages exchanged between Users through the instant messaging service present on the Platform, in particular for the purposes of fraud prevention, improvement of its services, user assistance, or verification of compliance by Users with these Terms and Conditions. For example, to prevent a Donor from claiming the slightest sum of money or consideration of any kind, the Company authorises itself to browse and analyse the messages exchanged via the messaging service.
However, the Company never reviews your communications with other Users for promotional purposes or advertising targeting.
8.5. Limitation of liability
The Company undertakes to implement all necessary means to ensure the best possible provision of Services to Users and Donors and the accessibility of the Platform.
However, the Company declines all responsibility in the event of:
• Interruptions, breakdowns, momentary inaccessibility, modifications and malfunctions of the Platform, whatever the communication medium used and whatever the origin and source, in particular for technical problems,
• Loss of data or information stored by the Company. It is the responsibility of the Donors to take all necessary precautions to keep the advertisements they publish on the Platform,
• Direct or indirect damage caused to the User or the Donor, of whatever nature, resulting from the content of the advertisements and/or the access, management, use, operation, malfunction and/or interruption of the Platform and/or the Services,
• Abnormal use or illicit exploitation of the Platform and Services by any User or Donor,
• Computer attack or hacking, deprivation, suppression or prohibition, temporary or permanent, and for whatever reason, of access to the Internet network.
The Company's liability may only be engaged for direct damage suffered by a User resulting from a breach of its contractual obligations as defined herein.

Each User and Donor is then solely responsible for any damage caused to third parties and the consequences of any claims or actions that may result therefrom. The User also waives the right to exercise any recourse against the Company in the event of proceedings brought against it by a third party as a result of the illicit use and/or exploitation of the Platform or Services, in the event of loss by a User or Donor of his password or in the event of usurpation of his identity.
