    ARTICLE 4. WARRANTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES

    TEXPLAINED makes its best efforts to keep the Website up-to-date and disseminate reliable, lawful and validated information by competent professionals. However, despite all the care and attention paid to the writing of content and information, TEXPLAINED cannot guarantee the integrity, accuracy, completeness, timeliness or other quality of the information on the Website.

    The information published on the Website is provided by TEXPLAINED strictly and exclusively for informative and indicative purposes, without intention to provide any advice or recommendations whatsoever in the field of reverse engineering and security of Integrated Circuits and cannot be interpreted as such.

    The visitor of the Website is informed that access to the Website implies knowledge and acceptance of the characteristics and limits of the internet, in particular as regards the technical performances, the response times to consult, interrogate or transfer information, the risks of interruption, and more generally, the risks inherent in any connection and transmission over the internet, the lack of protection of certain data against possible diversions and the risk of contamination by any viruses circulating on the network. It is therefore the responsibility of the visitor of the Website to take all appropriate measures to protect his/her own data and/or software, as well as the information he/she communicates to TEXPLAINED on the Website, against any threat.

    The Website is made available “as is” and subject to its availability, without any guarantee of any kind, implicit or explicit, from TEXPLAINED.

    ARTICLE 6. SOCIAL NETWORKS

    The Website uses the plug-ins of the following social networks:

    When the visitor interacts with these plug-ins, his/her browser establishes a direct connection with the servers of the corresponding social network. The content of the plug-in is immediately transmitted by his/her browser to the social network and saved on its servers. By integrating this plug-in, the social network is informed that the visitor has visited the Website. It can thus associate his/her navigation on the Website to his/her user account of this social network. If the visitor does not want the social network to collect his/her personal data through the Website and link it to his/her user account, the visitor must disconnect from the social network before visiting the Website.
