TheContillery may publish on this website creative briefs inviting users of this website who are employees of TheContillery to propose original, unpublished creations (hereafter the "Creations"). By registering on this website and proposing Creations, whether in response to briefs published by TheContillery or on their own initiative without any brief, TheContillery employees (hereinafter the "Authors") shall progressively assign to TheContillery all intellectual property rights to the creations of which they are the Authors as they send the said creations to the website.

The rights of reproduction, performance and adaptation regarding the Creations shall thus be assigned for the full period of copyright protection in France and abroad under the French Intellectual Property Code and international copyright conventions.

In the event that the intellectual property rights (copyrights and similar rights, particularly rights to trademarks, designs and models) are related to preliminary versions and are not the property of the Author, the Authors hereby agree to specify the source of the borrowed or adapted works in a note attached to the submitted Creation.

In that way, if TheContillery wishes to produce the Creations for the purposes of one of its advertiser clients, TheContillery may negotiate with the relevant rights-holders in order to obtain the authorizations and assignments of rights necessary for unchallenged exploitation of the Creations.

The above-mentioned assignment of rights shall be granted exclusively to TheContillery and the companies thereof and shall remain valid even in case of the cessation, for any reason, of the employment contract or contract for services between the Authors and the TheContillery. Consequently, the participants agree to refrain from granting any rights of the same kind to third parties.
