Yet, the User may configure his/her computer against the storage of cookies.

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS

The Website and its content are protected under Belgian authors’ rights and intellectual property laws (design and models, trademarks).

The whole content of this Website (architecture, texts, titles, photography, sounds, images, illustrations, etc.) is the property of PRO EUROPE, or its assignors and/or licensors.  It can in no event be, in whole or in part, licensed, posted, transmitted, or distributed.

You may download, view, copy, and print documents from this Website subject to the following: (a) the documents may be used solely for personal, informational, non-commercial purposes; and (b) the documents may not be modified or altered in any way. You may not use, download, upload, copy, print, display, perform, reproduce, publish, license, post, transmit, or distribute any information from this Website in whole or in part without the express written authorisation of PRO EUROPE.

Pursuant to the law dated June 30th 1994, known as “LDA”, any representation, reproduction, modification, alteration, in whole or in part, of the Website, or of its content, through any kind of process or media, and on any kind of material, which has not been expressly authorised by PRO EUROPE in writing shall be illicit and constitute a legal infringement sanctioned as provided for under article 80 and the following articles of the above-mentioned law.

The trademarks which may be quoted or which may appear on the Website are registered as trademarks by the companies which own them. Any reproduction or representation without the prior written authorisation of PRO EUROPE shall be considered as a legal infringement and be sanctioned as such.

GOVERNING LAW AND JURISDICTION 

This Website and these Terms shall be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of Belgium without regard to conflicts of law provisions.
