  • Others for all Profiles that do not fit into the first 3 categories.

4.1. Sports resume / Sports CV
Basic registration on the Company's Platform allows Members access to free Services for linking via the optimization of tools that it publishes.

Thanks to the Platform it publishes, the Company offers tools for connecting people with different Profiles depending on the sporting field in which they evolve and especially according to their Profile.

The Company may, either automatically, or at its discretion, or at the request of a Member, verify Information on the CV, thereby guaranteeing it by issuing a Verified Profile or VP label. Therefore, the VP values ​​both the Member's CV and the quality of the Platform.
This is why the Company distinguishes by adding or deleting pre-established fields to be completed in the various CVs, according to the declared Profile. Thus, without assuming the authenticity of the information provided, the Company requests in particular to be contacted by the Agents to validate the creation of the Profile.
However, the Company is under no obligation to verify the existence, nature or timeliness of the Information provided in a CV, including with regard to the legal documents required by French law to exercise a profession, such as a diploma for a Coach or a license for an Agent. Especially since the legislative rules and the federations, just like the requirements in terms of diplomas and authorizations, are not identical in all the States of Europe and, a fortiori, in the world.
The Company publishes a Platform with networking tools for amateurs, semi-professionals and sports professionals. It is the responsibility of the Members, once connected through the Platform, to carry out checks by all means as to the veracity of the Information declared by one or more other Members with whom they have entered into a relationship. Members are also responsible for complying with applicable national and international rules relating to their Profiles.

A Player with an NVP can create and manage their CV and is visibly displayed as an Unverified Profile for the entire Member community. Their Profile does not appear in the Marketplace, except via a “View Unverified Profiles” filter. In the Listings Pages, he only has access to Premium Listings and can apply for them by being rated NVP. He can only see the number of available Ads other than Premium, but not their Content, nor apply for them.
The VP label also allows the Player to display his Profile in the Marketplace, but only visible to Premium Players.
An Agent cannot in principle have an NVP. As this profession is subject to specific regulatory rules, particularly in France, the Platform published by the Company does not allow Agents to register without checking their status. If the Member wishes to continue his Registration and create an Agent Account, he must then contact the Company.
A VP Agent can manage his list of Players by adding or removing Members. On the other hand, he cannot co-administer the Profiles. He has access to the Marketplace but can only see Premium Profiles in the Players search with a message indicating the number of other Players corresponding to his search. He also does not see the "Contact info" block in the CVs, unless he is a Premium Player. A VP Agent can also create Listings but only visible to Premium Members. He can only see Premium Listings in the Listings search, but sees the number of all other Listings available on the Platform. Above all, a VP Agent cannot apply for his Players. But he can ask the Company to create Player Profiles or create them himself, while the Player recovers his Account.
An NVP Coach already has access to the Marketplace, but can only see Premium Profiles in the list of Players or Athletes; a message nevertheless indicates the number of other Players or Athletes forming a non-Premium list. He cannot create Ads..
A VP Coach also has the ability to create Ads but only visible to Premium Members.
All Other Members who are neither Players nor Agents follow the same rules as Coaches for access and Content, more or less restricted, to free Services.

In addition to the free basic Services, the Member can purchase paid services or Premium Services. In this case, he agrees to fulfill the additional obligations related to payment described in Article 6.
As for the free Services, the paid Services of the registered Member vary according to his profession. In addition, a Premium Member automatically has the VP.
Thus an Athlete or a Premium Player sees his Profile appear in the Marketplace and be visible to all those who can access this restricted Forum. He has access to all online Offers and can apply there.
A Premium Agent can manage his list of Players (with additions and deletions) and co-administer the Profiles of his Players. He has access to the Marketplace and sees all Players. He is able to create Offers visible to all and able to see all Offers posted. He can apply for his Players. He is finally able to give Premium visibility to his non-Premium Players.
A Premium Coach sees all Players, regardless of their Profiles. He can create Offers visible to all.
All other Members who are neither Players nor Agents follow the same rules as Coaches for access and content to Premium Services.
