(iv) Not to use the Intangible Assets or any other distinctive sign that is confusingly similar.

The access, browsing and/or use of L’Occitane Web Page by User in no event, under no reason or circumstance may be construed as granting any right whatsoever in favor of User on the Contents and Intangible Assets and grant no right whatsoever for the utilization thereof. Consequently, no waiver or license, concession or authorization is granted and no transfer or assignment (whether in full or in part) whatsoever is effected regarding the intellectual and industrial property rights related directly or indirectly with the Contents and Intangible Assets, and no expectation on the creation of such right shall exist.
 
L'Occitane assumes no responsibility in connection with any infringement to intellectual or industrial property rights of third parties that may derive from the inclusion in L’Occitane Web Page of any trademarks, advertisement, industrial designs, patents, designs, texts, pictures, graphics, logos, icons or software owned by third parties that have stated to be the owners thereof at the time the same were included in L’Occitane Web Page.
