These Terms and Conditions are intended to set out the conditions under which the Users can access the Services.

Any person who wishes to benefit from the Youtrace Services offered by Trace Global undertakes to comply with these Terms and Conditions unreservedly.

The User is expressly informed that the authoritative version of the Youtrace Terms and Conditions is that which is accessible online at the following address at the moment they log in to the following website:

The T&C and any modifications are deemed accepted unreservedly by the User logging in to the Website once they have been uploaded. If the User does not wish to accept all or part of the T&C and/or the legal notices, they are asked to renounce all use of the Services.


IV Accessing the Website

The Website is open to any User via the Internet and/or mobile devices that fulfil the conditions listed above subject to a connection to the Internet network being available.

However, the creation of a customer account is required if you wish to benefit from the Youtrace Services proposed by Trace Global.


V Legal Age for using the Service


You must be aged 18 or over to create an account on Youtrace.  In some countries, the age of legal majority may be different, in which case you must satisfy this requirement to become a member. Minors may use the service but only with the agreement and under the supervision of a parent or legal guardian.


VI Creating an Account

1) General terms for Website Registration and Account creation

Access to the Services is subject to the Identification of the User following the creation of an Account through the registration procedure on the Website.

By registering, the User is required to share personal data that will be collected by the Website (including surname, first name(s), date of birth, postal address, email address, etc.) and which will then be used to identify them and facilitate their access to the Services.

When registering online, the User undertakes to provide true, accurate, up-to-date, and complete information regarding their identity and age. They undertake not to create a false identity that would cause Trace Global or third parties to make a mistake and not to usurp the identity of another legal or physical person.

Once the T&C have been validated and the Account created, the User receives an email confirming their registration, sent to the email address associated with their User ID.

If the User provides false, inaccurate, out of date, incomplete, or misleading information, Trace Global may immediately suspend or cancel their User Account and refuse access, temporarily or permanently to all or part of the Services subject to registration without providing notice or compensation.

2) Special conditions for the Registration of minors to the Services

Parents and any person exercising parental control are reminded that their minor child cannot create an Account nor benefit from the Services without their agreement. Only parents are authorized to create an Account and subscribe to any Youtrace offer. Any contract must be signed by the parents or any person exercising parental authority.  Furthermore, you are reminded that up to 15 years of age, minors cannot consent to the processing of their personal data alone. Processing is subject to the double consent of both the child and its parents or any person exercising parental authority over them.

3) User ID

The User Account includes its User IDs, provided by Trace Global on registration then modified by the User and placed under their sole responsibility. The User undertakes to keep them secret and not to disclose them in any way whatsoever. If any element of the User ID is lost or stolen, the User must immediately inform Trace Global, which will then proceed to the immediate cancellation and/or updating of the element concerned.

The User alone is responsible for the use made of their User ID even if they save it on their computer, cell phone, or any other type of equipment with an automatic connection to their Account.

Any access, use of the Services, and data transmission carried out from the User Account will be deemed to have been carried out by the User. The User is solely responsible for safeguarding the confidentiality of their password. For this reason, the User is required to ensure that, at the end of each session, they log out from the Services, especially when they access the Services from a public computer.

The User alone is liable for any loss, misappropriation, or unauthorized use of their User ID and the consequences thereof. In all of the cases mentioned above, the User is required to inform Trace Global, providing their surname, first name(s), zip code, town/city, date of birth, phone number and, if possible, username and former password, using the contact form so that Trace Global can remove the username and password in question.

4) Closing the Account

The User may close their account at any time without giving a reason for this as long as they have complied with their commitments to Trace Global. Just go to the “My Account” section.

Trace Global may cancel the account of a User if they breach any of the provisions herein. In the event of breach, Trace Global may, at their discretion, immediately and definitively delete the account of the User in question. The Editor also reserves the right to begin proceedings against the User concerned and to claim damages in compensation for the harm suffered due to the breach. Such cancellation may be carried out without a notice period, warning, or formal notice in advance.
