Article 4 – hypertext links
Hypertext links on the renovup.eu website
The website may contain hypertext links to other sites on the Internet. These links towards other resources have for consequences:

In view of the above, the publisher is purely and simply unable to guarantee, implicitly or expressly, the reliability, accessibility, integrity, let alone the updating of the information in any form whatsoever, and in particular in the form of texts, sounds, still or animated images, videos, databases, hyperlinks, contained on the websites to which the user is referred via these hypertext links.

Article 5 – availibility of the website
The publisher declares that it will make its best efforts and take all possible precautions to allow access to the website 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Nevertheless, due to the nature of the Internet network and in particular for reasons of maintenance, technical malfunction, cases of force majeure, events beyond the control of the publisher, the latter cannot guarantee the availability without interruption, 24 hours a day, of the said site nor the reliability of transmissions and performance in terms of response time or quality.
In addition, users are expressly advised that:
- for any reason whatsoever, the publisher may be required to interrupt access to the website, in whole or in part, at any time without prior notice, and without any right to compensation for himself or third parties;
- no technical assistance, in any form whatsoever, electronic or telephone, is offered by the publisher.
In view of the above, the user acknowledges that access to the website is at his/her own risk and under his/her sole and entire responsibility, which he/she accepts.
