The CIPG club website is an IT platform that enables :

  • secondly, to put professional and non-professional property investors and sellers in touch with each other via an advertisement submission module;
  • to provide assistance with investment and rental management, by means of tools and model documents, but also by putting you in touch with professional service providers.

These GTCU do not govern relations between investors, landlords, vendors and tenants, but only those between CIPG club and Users.

As the publisher of a Platform for bringing people together, CIPG club is not a party to any rental contract concluded between a landlord and a tenant, or a sales contract between an investor and a seller, or a service contract concluded between a User and a service provider recommended by the Platform.

2). Use of the website

These GTCU prohibit you from using any process to access, acquire, copy or monitor any part of our Website or its content, or from reproducing or circumventing the navigational structure or presentation of our Website or its content in order to obtain or attempt to obtain data, documents or information for you by means not intentionally made available to you via our Website.

You are also prohibited from attempting to probe, scan or test the vulnerability of our Website or any networks connected to our Website, or to breach the security and authentication measures implemented on our Website or the networks connected to our Website.

Nor are you authorised to trace the details of any other CIPG club user, or to exploit our Website or any other service or information made available on or through our Website.

You agree not to take any action that imposes an unreasonable or disproportionately large load on our Website infrastructure or CIPG club systems and networks.

Similarly, you may not attempt to forge headers or manipulate identifiers in any way to disguise the origin of any message or transmission sent to CIPG club on or through our Website.

You may not claim that you are or that you represent someone else. Each account is nominative and linked to a single User.

Any use of our Website or its content for illegal purposes or purposes prohibited by these GTCU, or solicitation to carry out any illegal activity or any other activity infringing the rights of the CIPG club is prohibited.

3). Privacy policy

We invite you to consult our Privacy Policy, which applies to the use of our Site. Its terms form an integral part of these GTCU. By using our Site, you acknowledge and accept that transmissions over the Internet are never completely private and/or secure.

4). User account

Any natural person of legal age or legal entity may freely become a Member of the CIPG club. The User may only use all of the club’s Services after registering and obtaining the status of Member, and logging in by indicating his e-mail address or pseudo and personal password as identifiers. The Member may modify all the information he/she entered when registering, by using the management parameters of his/her account. Members are responsible for all actions carried out using their login details, and in particular, but not exclusively, for their Contributions.

4.1). Creating an account

Access to the various services of the CIPG club Platform is subject to the creation of a personal account by means of a form available online for this purpose. In order to register on the CIPG club Platform, the User (natural person) must be at least eighteen years old on the date of the registration request and be legally capable; the User (legal person) must have the capacity and legal capacity to do so. CIPG club reserves the right to verify the User’s identity. In this event, the User must provide CIPG club, as soon as possible, with a copy of his valid identity papers or a K-Bis extract in the case of a SCI or a professional. In order to guarantee the security of the information transmitted, we recommend that the User prints a copy of the paper enabling him to prove his identity and affix the words “copy for CIPG club” overlapping the document without this mention concealing your name or that of your company.

When creating an account, the User must :

  • choose a user name,
  • enter your e-mail address,
  • read and accept these General Terms and Conditions of Use and Sale.

The User receives an initial e-mail with a link to confirm their e-mail address by clicking on a link to our site. Once the User’s e-mail address has been verified, a second e-mail invites him/her to create his/her connection password. The User will then be able to connect to the CIPG club exchange platform and opt for an Offer to become a CIPG club Member.

It is the User’s responsibility to ensure that the e-mail address entered is valid and that he alone has access to the e-mail containing his login details. Access codes are personal and confidential. As such, the User is solely responsible for the preservation and confidentiality of his/her password and, consequently, for the consequences of its inadvertent disclosure to any third party. Users are reminded that their login details may not be passed on to a third party, failing which they will be removed from the CIPG club Platform.

Any use of the personal area using the password allocated to the User is presumed to originate exclusively from the User. The User is obliged to notify the CIPG club immediately of any compromise to the confidentiality of his/her password or any use by a third party of which he/she is aware. In the event of loss, forgetfulness and/or suspicion of fraudulent use of their password, Users may request the creation of a new password via the “Forgot your password ?”

The creation of an account implies acceptance of these Terms of Use. By registering, the User agrees in particular to receive information from the CIPG club by e-mail, from which he/she may unsubscribe on request to the club team or via the unsubscribe link at the bottom of each e-mail.

4.2). Account inactivity

If a User or Member account is inactive for more than three (3) months, CIPG club reserves the right to deactivate and/or delete said account at any time and without prior notice. A suspended Member is not entitled to any reimbursement of fees, payment of penalties or damages.

Closure of an account has no effect on previous transfers; in particular, the CIPG club may continue to use the Contributions of the former User. In particular, the CIPG club will be able to continue to use the Contributions of the former User. This User therefore automatically undertakes to waive any legal action or intellectual property proceedings in respect of all Contributions exchanged with the CIPG club.

4.3). Cancellation of registration, deletion and removal of content

CIPG club reserves the right, with or without prior notice, to modify, reject, deactivate or delete, in whole or in part, any registration, personal file and/or content, including publications, whether of a private nature or not, if there is a breach of these terms of use, including the privacy policy. In such a case, CIPG club shall have no obligation to refund any fees and may, in accordance with applicable laws, disclose, if necessary, the identity of the user who engages in such prohibited activities or who contravenes any applicable law.

CIPG club reserves the right to delete the user’s data saved on its servers, in which case it cannot be recovered at a later date. The deregistration, banishment or deletion of a user account has no effect on previous transfers; in particular, the CIPG club may continue to use the Contributions of the former User. In particular, the CIPG club will be able to continue to use the Contributions of the former User. This User thus automatically undertakes to waive any legal action or intellectual property proceedings in respect of all Contributions exchanged with the CIPG club.

5). CIPG club offers

CIPG club will offer the User various types of service in the form of Offers (detailed below). The electronic contact details to be used for each of the parties will be specified by any means at their convenience at the time of their first exchange. The User and CIPG club agree that the electronic contact details are sufficient to identify the sender of the electronic document and to authenticate its origin.

5.1). Description of the Offers

The CIPG club offers Users two ways of becoming a Club Member. The first status, Member, enables investors or landlords to join the community and benefit from the experience of others. This status gives access to certain services, the list of which and any limitations are detailed on this page. The second status, Premium ✨ unlocks all the unlimited services and access to bonus content.

Membership of the CIPG club is concluded intuitu personæ for use exclusively for the User’s own internal use. The User agrees not to transfer access, subscription and/or any rights and obligations arising therefrom to a third party by any means whatsoever.

There are 2 offers within the club, the first to become a Club Member with a no-commitment, no-subscription rate at € 60 including VAT for 12 months’ membership. The second is to become a Premium Member ✨ of the club at a preferential rate of € 144 including VAT for 12 months, with no commitment and no subscription. A time-limited promotion may be offered by the CIPG club with a preferential rate for setting up a subscription. The discount for the Member subscription offer is valid only once per individual or legal entity. You can compare and see the details of the offers on this page.

5.2). Prices, method of payment

The User wishing to acquire or renew an Offer undertakes to pay CIPG club the sum stipulated at the time of validation of the order in compliance with the payment condition: 100% of the price before execution. Prices are quoted in euros and include all taxes. Offers are invoiced annually. The price of the Offers may vary according to the price list in force on the day of the order and will take into account the taxes applicable on the day of the order. Any change in the rate of these taxes will automatically be reflected in the price of the Offers and the order on the day it is concluded. CIPG club reserves the right to change its prices at any time by publishing them online. These prices do not include the cost of the Internet connection, which remains the responsibility of the User.

Subscription to a CIPG club Paid Service must be paid for online by credit card, bank transfer or cheque on the due date. In order to ensure your security when paying online, CIPG club uses the Stripe and Paypal payment systems so that your bank details do not pass through our servers. The User accepts unreservedly the general conditions of use of the Stripe (find out more) and Paypal (find out more) services.

In the case of an Offer without a subscription, it is the User’s responsibility to make the payment every year to renew their access rights to the Platform. The renewal date is indicated in the personal space section of the Platform.

An Offer with a subscription paid for by credit card will be renewed automatically by tacit agreement each year on the expiry date. The User agrees that his/her subscription may be renewed automatically on expiry of the initial term for successive additional periods of the same duration as the initial term, at the price accepted by the member when he/she initially registered. It is the User’s responsibility to ensure before renewing their subscription that their bank card is valid (expiry date) and that there are sufficient funds in their account to enable payment of their subscription to be made. If the payment is rejected or the bank card expires, the subscription will not be renewed. In the case of payment by bank transfer or cheque, it is the User’s responsibility to make the payment every year in order to renew their access rights to the Platform. The renewal date is indicated in the personal space section of the Platform.

In the event of non-payment on the due date, access to the entire CIPG club Platform will be automatically cut off until the situation has been rectified.

A User acquires the status of CIPG club Member as soon as the membership fee has been paid. Access to the platform is conditional upon payment of the membership fee.

CIPG club reserves the right to refuse an order from a User who has not paid in full or in part for a previous order or with whom a payment dispute is in progress.

5.3). Promotions, special offers

The CIPG club reserves the right to offer occasional promotions, discounts or special offers to Users or Club Members. Each promotion, discount or special offer will be limited in time and cannot be accumulated.

Any manoeuvre, whether repeated or not, by the User or a Member with the aim of wrongly benefiting from a promotional discount (promotional code, discount voucher, etc.), such as the suspension of a current subscription with a view to wrongly benefiting from a promotional discount, will be considered fraudulent. In this respect, CIPG club reserves the right not to validate the membership or to suspend or close the User’s or Member’s account, causing the latter to permanently lose the benefit of the associated promotional discount (immediate or deferred). Notwithstanding the foregoing, CIPG club reserves the right to take any recovery action against the User or Member who has wrongly and/or fraudulently benefited from promotional discounts, in order to recover the sums wrongly received on the basis of article 1302-1 of the French Civil Code.

5.4). Cancellation

An Offer without subscription ends on the date indicated in the personal space section of the Platform. In the case of an Offer with a subscription, it is the User’s responsibility to suspend recurring payments from the Platform’s personal space in the subscription tracking section or, in the case of payment via the User’s Paypal account, by following this procedure.

Users who wish to cancel all or part of their order must contact the CIPG club within 14 days by e-mail to be sent to the club team. Users are reminded that cancelling a club membership does not normally give rise to any right to reimbursement or compensation, as the Member has had the opportunity to copy all of the content of our Platform. Except in the particular case where the User has never been connected to the exchange platform by using his/her identifiers (user name, e-mail address or password). The club moderator, considered as a neutral party, will certify whether or not the User in question has accessed the exchange platform.

In the event of early termination of an Offer before expiry of the minimum commitment period (of twelve months), the User will continue to benefit from the services to which he has access as part of his Offer until the end of the subscription period in question. The subscription is concluded intuitu personæ for use exclusively for the User’s internal use. The User agrees not to transfer the subscription and/or any rights and obligations arising therefrom to a third party by any means whatsoever.

In the event of a judgment against the CIPG club, and whatever the nature of the loss (direct/indirect) or the origin of the damage, the sums taken over by the CIPG club will, by mutual agreement, be expressly limited to the amount of the price of the Offer.

The User must reimburse the CIPG club for all costs incurred on the date of receipt of the cancellation, notwithstanding any damages and interest that may be payable by the User as compensation for the direct and indirect loss suffered by the CIPG club as a result of this cancellation.

5.5). Unsubscribe

Resignation is a right that each Member may exercise at any time. Members wishing to resign from the CIPG Club must send an e-mail to the club manager using the contact form on our website. A resigning Member may not claim any reimbursement of membership fees, any payment of penalties or damages. All Member Contributions will remain the property of the CIPG club.

6). User obligations

6.1). Rules for good conduct

Users are reminded that they are solely responsible for the information, messages and, in general, any content that they post via the CIPG club’s interactive services, such as comments, forums, private messages or requests for quotes.

Each User undertakes not to do anything that might damage the honour or reputation of the CIPG club, its activities or its representatives.

All contributions and communications that openly condone crimes against humanity, incite racial hatred or violence, are erotic, pornographic, defamatory, insulting, untrue, offensive to the respect of persons, contrary to public order or morality, as well as commercial parasitism, are prohibited. The account of any User who does not comply with these conditions may be closed and his/her messages deleted without notice.

In addition, the Contributor undertakes to make entirely original contributions. Any copy, paraphrase or reminiscence of a text written by a third party, whether published or not, is strictly prohibited. CIPG club warns Contributors against borrowing from websites, books, newspapers or magazines, studies, memoirs or white papers, brochures, etc…

In the event of breach of these provisions, the Contributor shall be solely liable. In addition, CIPG club may then, depending on the seriousness of the facts :

  • correct or delete the disputed Contribution(s) ;
  • and/or close access to the User automatically and without notice ;
  • and/or take legal action, depending on the seriousness of the facts.

In the event of the dissemination of works constituting illicit content or plagiarism, each User is encouraged to alert the CIPG club’s moderation department by e-mail, indicating “Illicit content” or “Plagiarism” in the subject line, and specifying the link to the page containing the contentious content.

The User accepts that the CIPG club may take the initiative, without prior formal notice, to delete, in whole or in part, any content that it distributes or that is sent to it via the interactive services, if this content is likely to infringe the laws and regulations in force or public decency.

The User undertakes to use the quote request service for personal purposes and for genuine and serious services. The User undertakes to provide accurate information when requesting a quote. Any misuse of the service may result in legal action. For example, requests for quotations that are fanciful, contain false information or impersonate a third party, and the creation of multiple accounts for the same individual are considered to be abusive.

6.2). Your account safety

When registering on the CIPG Club website, the User is asked to choose a user name and password. The User is solely responsible for the confidentiality of these identifiers, and remains so in the event of unauthorised actions carried out by a third party using them. For this reason, Users are advised to log off at the end of their session. In the event of fraudulent use of his/her identifiers, the User is obliged to inform the CIPG club without delay, indicating the violations that may have been committed.

It should be noted that the subscription is taken out intuitu personæ for use exclusively for the User’s own internal use. The User agrees not to transfer access, the subscription and/or any rights and obligations arising therefrom to a third party by any means whatsoever.

6.3). Terms and conditions for making Contributions available

The Contributions are made available by the Contributor who sends the elements by e-mail to CIPG club and/or on the Website interfaces provided for this purpose (forum, private messaging, contact form, Classifieds module, article, project, etc.). The Contributor guarantees that he is the author of the original files or texts of his Contributions. CIPG club shall in no event be liable in the event of loss of data or plagiarism.

CIPG club remains free not to publish or to unpublish any Contribution without having to justify itself. The Contributing Member is solely responsible for the inclusion in its Contributions of personal or nominative information enabling it to be identified.

In accordance with the legislation in force, a Contributor may request the removal of nominative information concerning him. Nevertheless, the content of the Contributions will remain assigned to and usable by the CIPG club.

6.4). Privacy

Each User undertakes to treat as confidential all commercial, financial, technical or other information and contributions obtained in the course of providing CIPG Club support or services. Each Member undertakes not to divulge to third parties any significant know-how that other Members may have communicated to them.

In this respect, each of the parties undertakes to take the following safeguard measures :

  • Refrain from communicating to third parties in any way whatsoever, all or part of information that is confidential in nature, even after the expiry or termination of a membership or these General Terms and Conditions of Sale and Use (GTSU).

7). Moderation, abuses and sanctions

7.1). Call for moderation, abuses and sanctions

In the event of a call for moderation (to ask a question or request a moderation action), remember that the operation of the exchange platform and the forum relies on the work of a few volunteers who are not always immediately available. Give them time to get to know the subject and take action.

The best form of moderation is self-moderation. What should I do if something goes too far? In the event of a dispute, or if you feel that a Member has overstepped the mark, you should try to resolve the problem privately, through direct dialogue, rather than immediately calling on the moderation service. Such disputes should not give rise to public controversy on the Platform.

If you are unable to resolve the dispute directly, contact moderation (or click on “report or complaint”), giving the context and exact references of the disputed messages. Moderation provides for graduated levels of intervention depending on the situation:

  1. The moderator intervenes by sending an email to the authors of the disputed messages, informing them that their exchanges fall outside the rules of the forum and asking them, depending on the situation, to reformulate or modify their text. Following the disputed post, the moderator will indicate on the forum that a moderation action is in progress and will invite the other participants not to continue the controversy. If those concerned correct their posts themselves, the moderation process is over. If they do not, the moderation will be stepped up a notch. If the moderation concerns abusive, racist, xenophobic or sexist comments, or comments prohibited by law, the moderation goes directly to step 2.
  2. Moderation masks and archives contentious messages, or even locks the subject. If there is no reaction from the parties concerned, the moderator will hide and archive contentious messages, notifying the authors by e-mail. If the subject tends to be controversial, moderation may choose to lock the subject. The moderator posts a message on the moderated subject explaining the moderation action and reminding users of the rule in question. In the case of a minor breach, the moderation action is terminated; in the case of a serious breach or repeat offence, the moderation action is raised one or two notches.
  3. Moderation will suspend the user’s account for one week. In the event of serious misconduct (abusive, racist, xenophobic, sexist comments, or comments prohibited by law) or repeated offences (two moderation actions in 3 consecutive months), the moderation team may decide to suspend access to the forum by the person concerned for one week. The moderator will inform the person concerned by email, referring to the comments moderated and the rules concerned.
  4. Moderation calls on the Club Manager. In the event of repeated serious breaches, repeated offences (four moderation actions in 12 rolling months) or in certain special cases on the collegiate opinion of the moderators, the moderators may appeal to the Club Manager. The Club Manager can decide on measures ranging from suspension of the account for one month to permanent removal from the forum or platform, or even from the community.

All moderation actions are communicated to the interested parties, communicated and traceable on the exchange platform or the forum, and any masked messages are archived. The moderators’ choice must be respected. However, it is possible to express disagreement, and the moderators or governing bodies are available to discuss the matter.

Remember that the club and its extension, the discussion platform and the forum, are places for sharing, not controversy! These rules are simple: the administration and moderation team simply ask you to respect them. Whatever the situation concerned, give priority to respect and dialogue, and give the moderators time to take the most appropriate action depending on the situation.

7.2). Deregistration, exclusion of a Member

Only the CIPG club manager may decide to strike off or exclude a Member if one of the following situations arises :

  • Non-payment of the annual subscription or an Order,
  • Passing on your login details to a third party,
  • Distribution of information in the member area,
  • Disrespectful behaviour or remarks towards a third party,
  • Excessive commercial canvassing of members,
  • Failure to comply with applicable laws,
  • Use of a false identity or identity theft,
  • Non-compliance with its obligations as defined in article 7 above,
  • Serious misconduct damaging the balance and image of the CIPG club,
  • Failure to comply with moderation rules.

A Member who has been struck off or excluded may not claim any reimbursement of membership fees, use of rewards, payment of penalties or damages. CIPG club reserves the right to take legal action against any excluded person in order to claim damages if the bad behaviour has caused prejudice.

8). How our services work

Any natural person of legal age or legal entity may freely use the CIPG club services. The User may use some of the service modules without being a Member of the club. It is clearly understood that each User using all or part of a service takes responsibility for all actions carried out by means of his/her login information, and in particular, but not exclusively, for his/her Contributions.

8.1). Newsletter

The CIPG club sends all subscribers at least one newsletter a month covering events and news relating to the property niche of car parks, garages, boxes, cellars, warehouses, hangars, premises and shops. Users can also receive our promotional offers, advice or alerts about scams in the property niche. We try not to inundate Users with emails by limiting our mailings to one message per week. Club Members may receive more messages from us, in particular when they subscribe to notifications from the exchange platform (see section 8.4 on this subject).

Users subscribe to our newsletter when they do one of the following :

Another case of registration may arise for a User: if a Member uses the club’s sponsorship programme described in chapter 8.12 of these General Terms and Conditions. Despite all the care taken to validate e-mail addresses via our subscription confirmation system, we are not immune to the possibility of a technical problem disrupting the check or of a third party filling in the form by usurping an identity or finding a way of bypassing our vigilance. In the latter case, the CIPG club team will be happy to remove you from our mailing list.

A User may unsubscribe at any time by clicking on the “Unsubscribe” button located at the bottom of each automatic e-mail sent by the CIPG club. The CIPG club team also remains at the disposal of a User in order to unsubscribe them manually from our mailing list.

8.2). E-learning dashboard

The CIPG club provides its Members with a dedicated space. The platform contains numerous advice articles, contributions from club members and tools. This platform allows Members to exchange ideas in different ways and to receive advice from the community. Despite all the care taken by our moderation team, we advise Users and Members to check the accuracy and relevance of each piece of information collected on the platform. The advice given by our Members is not a substitute for consulting a professional.

8.3). Toolbox

The toolbox allows each Member to easily find a simulator, document template or site module (rental management, accounting, training, etc.).

8.4). Discussion forum

The CIPG club provides its Members with a discussion area via a forum. Each Member is free to express himself/herself and to publish questions or information as long as everything is done in compliance with intellectual property rights and the rules of good conduct described in article 6 above. Each message left on the forum is considered to be a Contribution. Despite all the care taken by our moderation team, we advise Users and Members to check the accuracy and relevance of each piece of information collected on the platform. The advice given by our Members is not a substitute for professional advice.

An e-mail system enables Members to be informed of new topics or replies published on the forum. Each Member is free to subscribe or unsubscribe to each topic and associated replies, using the “Subscribe to new replies” or “Unsubscribe to new replies” button located at the start of each topic.

8.5). Webinars and videoconferencing

The community module enables you to exchange information between club Members. The CIPG club reserves the right to record a webinar and/or videoconference to enable all other Members to watch it again on video. The participation of a Member in a webinar and/or videoconference implies the waiver of said Member’s image rights. All webinars and videoconferences are considered as Contributions.

8.6). Simulators and document templates

The model documents must be used subject to compliance with the legal and regulatory conditions governing their validity. The CIPG club cannot be held responsible for the direct or indirect consequences of the use of these templates in conditions not provided for by law, or for any modifications made to them by the User. The model documents are not a substitute for consulting a legal professional. Members are personally responsible for archiving documents issued and received, particularly for their own tax and accounting purposes.

8.7). Ads and showcase pages

The CIPG club provides Users with a classified advertising module strictly reserved for the parking sector (car parks, garages, lock-ups, cellars, sheds, premises or warehouses). This module on our Website includes the following two types of ad :

  • The basic ad, which is free to place and is presented with a photo. The Contributor benefits from visibility on our Website thanks to our referencing. Users can contact the Advertiser as his telephone number and e-mail address are publicly accessible. Users are reminded that an Advertisement is considered to be a Contribution, and consequently the CIPG club may exploit its content.
  • The advertisement highlighted by a showcase page is free for Club Members. The Contributor benefits from high visibility on our Website thanks to our referencing and occasional showcasing on our Website. Users can contact the Advertiser as his telephone number and e-mail address are in secure public access. Users are reminded that an Advertisement is considered to be a Contribution, and consequently the CIPG club may exploit its content.

The CIPG club offers a public classified ad service. Despite all the care taken by our moderation team, we advise Users to check the accuracy and relevance of each piece of information. Do not hesitate to inform us of any ad that is not or is no longer up to date.

It is strictly forbidden to publish the same advert several times on the site or to publish an advert that is likely to mislead.

Professionals are reminded that, in accordance with the law, the price indicated on the site must include agency fees, which must be clearly explained when the initial contact is made. It is also forbidden for professionals to publish an ad pretending to be a private individual.

8.8). Online booking

An online booking service is available to Members in addition to the advertisements or the showcase pages (see Chapter 8.7 on this subject). An online booking button appears on the Member’s showcase page to enable a User to be put in contact and to set up a rental contract. The rental contract thus issued commits the User designated as the lessee and the Member designated as the lessor.

The dematerialised rental contract is proposed by the club but validated, adapted and modified by the Member, the owner-lessor. The CIPG club does not intervene in the contractual relationship between the landlord and the Tenant.

8.9). Online rental management

The online rental management service enables Members to monitor their property assets and to record the details of their existing tenants. The data collected in this way is not disseminated, and a security system ensures strict identification of the Member in order to display the data assigned to him or her.

8.10). Online accounting

The online accounting service is not a substitute for consulting a professional (chartered accountant, tax advisor, etc.). Members are personally responsible for archiving documents issued and received, particularly for their own tax and accounting needs.

8.11). Sponsorship and affiliation
