Taqt does not guarantee to Customers :
  1. that the Taqt Solutions and Services, which are subject to constant research to improve their performance and progress in particular, will be totally free of errors, defects or faults,
  2. that the Taqt Solutions and Services, being standard and in no way offered solely to a given Customer according to his own personal constraints, will specifically meet his needs and expectations.
In this respect, the Customer is informed and accepts that the Taqt Solutions and Services are not specifically designed for uses requiring :
  • a high level of accuracy in the information and data delivered, so that any inaccuracy or error in the data would have significant, serious or dangerous consequences

In particular, the Taqt Solutions and Services are not designed or intended to be operated as a life support system, medical or nuclear device or related to national defence.
The Customer is furthermore informed and accepts that the data to which he has access via the Taqt Solutions and Services are given without any guarantee of accuracy and/or correctness. Despite all the care and attention paid by Taqt to the design and implementation of its Taqt Solutions and Services, it cannot guarantee the Customer that they are free of errors or inaccuracies, particularly with regard to the data they deliver. This data cannot therefore have an indisputable evidential value, which the Customer acknowledges and accepts. The Customer is obliged to take these circumstances into account in the evaluation and implementation of his own products and services, of which he declares - by accepting the present - to be fully aware.He alone assumes the consequences in this respect.

Taqt shall not be held liable for the content of the data, the consequences of any errors and/or inaccuracies that they may contain and the possibility of data holes beyond its control.

  2. That the Taqt Solutions and Services will operate uninterruptedly and without error.
Taqt shall not be liable for any malfunction of the Taqt Solution, the Platform and/or the Services or for any operation that does not comply with the Customer's expected use if these circumstances result from a failure by the Customer to install the Taqt device and/or hardware or from any repair or maintenance of the hardware or any Taqt device carried out by the Customer himself or by a third party who is not Taqt.
Furthermore, Taqt shall not be held liable for any malfunction of the Taqt Solution or Taqt equipment linked to the batteries. In this respect, it is the Customer's responsibility to change the batteries in the Taqt Solutions as necessary.
THE WARRANTIES EXPRESSLY SET FORTH HEREIN ARE EXCLUSIVE AND IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, IN FACT OR IN LAW, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE, OR ARISING OUT OF THE COURSE OF DEALING BETWEEN THE PARTIES OR FROM USAGE OF TRADE.

25. Limitation of liability

Taqt shall not be held liable for the non-performance or delay in the performance of its obligations if this absence or delay is caused (i) by a failure on the part of the Customer to fulfil its own obligations or (ii) by a circumstance that is external and/or not attributable to it.
In any event, Taqt shall not be liable to the Customer for payment of damages of any kind whatsoever, whether direct, indirect, incidental, material, commercial, financial or moral (including, without limitation, loss of use, profits, data, information or clientele) as a result of the performance of these General Terms and Conditions, for an amount greater than the amount of the last twelve (12) monthly instalments of payment invoiced by Taqt in execution of the General Terms and Conditions.
