In this respect and in accordance with the provisions applicable under Belgian law in matters of intellectual property, national regulations and international conventions in force, only use for strictly private purposes is authorised.

The user may not therefore reproduce, represent, grant, distribute, market or modify all or part of the elements (texts, images, photos, etc.) represented on the site.
However, Spade scrl reserves the right to derogate from this provision and will provide a prior written agreement to any person sending a reasoned request.
Consequently, any illicit use of any element (text, images, photos, logos, etc.), in any way whatsoever, will be considered as an act of reproduction, counterfeiting or piracy, and may give rise to legal proceedings.
