General structure of the site:

The general structure of the Site is the exclusive property of the Centre Pompidou.


The brands of the Centre Pompidou and its partners, along with the logos featured on the Site, are trademarks registered with the French National Institute of Intellectual Property and, as such, are protected by intellectual property law.
Any reproduction in part or in whole of these brands and/or logos carried out from elements of the Site without the express authorisation of the Centre Pompidou or of their owners, is strictly prohibited and constitutes an infringement of copyright, as defined by the French Intellectual Property Code.


The term "Resources" includes all the content contained in the Site's resource centre, in particular still or animated images, screen captures, illustrations, texts and works in full or in excerpts, sound files (recordings of conferences, interviews, works or parts of musical works, sound installations, etc.). The Site's resource centre does not include the so-called "institutional" part, corresponding to the information, as of the date of the general terms of use, in the sections available in the header and the footer from the home page.
The Centre Pompidou provides web users with access to these Resources, the use of which is governed by the laws in force protecting them. Authorisation for their reuse must be requested directly from the rights holders, copyright management companies representing them or, when applicable, from the Centre Pompidou.
In the absence of authorisation, any reproduction or total or partial representation, any use, adaptation, provision or modification of these elements is strictly prohibited and constitutes an infringement of copyright law as defined by the French Intellectual Property Code.
All credits for Resources can be viewed by web users on the page where the Resources are presented. The Centre Pompidou undertakes to verify the accuracy of the information it provides for web users. If any of this information contains inaccuracies or errors, it undertakes to make every effort to have the information corrected as soon as possible.

Informative content:

In accordance with the provisions of the French Code of Relations between the Public and the Administration, some of the Site content is considered as administrative documents, notably the informative content.
As such, and in accordance with Book III of the French Code of Relations between the Public and the Administration concerning the reuse of public information, the information contained in these documents may be reused in accordance with the conditions set out in Book III, notably on condition that the information is not altered, that its meaning is not distorted and that its sources and the date of its latest update are indicated.

Hypertext links:

The Site may provide hypertext links to websites published by third parties and references to other websites. These links or references shall not be deemed to constitute approval or validation of their content. Under no circumstances may the Site publisher be held responsible for the nature of such content, nor for any damage or prejudice arising therefrom.
Furthermore, as the Publisher has no means of controlling or monitoring the sites referenced, or any changes or updates, the provision of hypertext links shall not give rise to any obligation of any kind on the Publisher's part.
