Welcome to OpenFlow Suite website. In accessing this site (hereafter the Site), you agree to abide by all the conditions set out below in the Terms of Use (hereafter the Terms of Use).

Beicip-Franlab holds the copyright to the various elements (publications and subjects) that make up the Site, in its capacity as originator (as the author or producer further to the intellectual property rights established by French law and European and International law) or by virtue of an assignment of rights (from the holders of the original rights) whose scope, as defined contractually, it shall respect and have respected, on pain of being held liable for violation.

Consequently, all the information that you see, hear or read on the Site, as well as the Site itself, is protected by copyright. Therefore, you are bound to respect all present and future intellectual property rights and, in particular, to refrain from reproducing, summarizing, translating, adapting, modifying, altering or redistributing the articles, studies, logos, models, subjects etc., which make up the content of the Site to large numbers of people or for collective use, even free of charge, without the prior written authorization of the publisher.

Any reproduction, representation, communication, redistribution or making available of the elements referred to above (especially by electronic means, the Internet or an Intranet or in order to build up an archive), whether in whole or in part, without the written consent of the Site's publisher, shall constitute an infringement, and a violation of the rights of the producer of the database which are sanctioned by French, European and International law.

  • For university research purposes
  • As news
  • As a reference
  • In order to be reproduced for strictly private use and not for collective use
  • As a short quotation when the extract does not represent an essential part of the work in question, even if it must be brief. Any extract quoted must only be ancillary: the work in which it is incorporated must make sense if it is removed. Likewise, short quotations, as well as the use of non-substantial extracts, must not lead to methodical or systematic references of a type likely to lead to the undue exploitation of the initial work without regard for the legitimate rights of the copyright holder
  • For reproduction or archive purposes on a temporary basis
