Use of the documents on the Platforms

ZRC created its Platforms in order to provide information about the company and its product for your personal use. Although considerable efforts have been made in order to ensure that the visual representations of ZRC products posted on the Platforms are representative of the colour, design, style, etc. of the original products, slight variations, distortions, and/or differences from the original product may appear. This may result, for example, from technical problems such as the settings of your browser or your computer. Accordingly, ARC cannot be held liable for the apparent differences between the images of products represented on the Platforms and the original products. We strongly advise you to visit one of our Dealers prior to making an online purchase.

You may download an electronic copy or print a copy of the document provided to you via the ZRC Platforms, exclusively for your personal use and for private, domestic, non-commercial purposes, provided that the property notices, in particular the intellectual property notices, such as copyrights© and trademarks™ are kept intact and are neither deleted nor modified. Unless indicated otherwise, you must consider that everything you see or read on the Platforms (such as ZRC inventions or products, images, photos, including any person represented in the photos, illustrations, icons, texts, video clips, music, written documents, and other documents) (“ZRC Documents”) belong to ZRC and are protected by law, in particular by all laws protecting copyrights, designs, and trademarks, as well as by the provisions of international treaties and national laws around the world.

It is strictly forbidden to sell, reproduce, distribute, convey, modify, post, publicly perform, relate, or otherwise produce derivative or second-hand works based on any ZRC document or to use the said document in any manner whatsoever for public or commercial purposes. Moreover, a ZRC Document cannot be posted or conveyed on any other platform, in a computer network environment, or on any other digital platform, for any purpose whatsoever, without the prior written agreement of ZRC. In the event of an infringement of any of the present Conditions of Use, your authorisation to use a ZRC Document shall be automatically terminated and all copies made of the said ZRC Document must be destroyed immediately, and we reserve the right to pursue any offender through all legal and judicial channels. Any unauthorised use of a ZRC Document may violate laws regarding copyrights, trademarks, privacy and advertising laws, and regulations and statues regarding communications.

Your unsolicited submissions and communications

The present section deals with communications sent to ZRC. It does not concern that communication of personal information to ZRC relating to customer requests, the use of services, or the purchase of products through the Platform. The latter is governed by the rules stated in the Privacy Policy.

Any unsolicited communication or document that you send to ZRC via the Platforms or through social media, by email or otherwise, including, but not limited to, data, questions or answers, comments, suggestions, or otherwise, shall be treated by ZRC as non-confidential and non-exclusive.

All of the information that you send may be used by ZRC and its affiliates for any purpose, including, but not limited to, reproduction, broadcast, transmission, publication, distribution, and posting, or the development, manufacture, and marketing of products on the basis of the said information.

Moreover, ZRC enjoys a worldwide reputation in both the design and the manufacture of high-quality Premium items. To this end, it retains its own creative sources, in particular the teams of highly qualified creators who design and improve ZRC creations.
