4. Description of the Services


myUpcyclea Functions


myUpcyclea® is a hosted SaaS software, available through the Internet, that allows to create and manage circular ecosystems.

The functions of myUpcyclea available from upcyclea.cloud allow to:

  • Needs manager, to characterize free of charge his needs in reuse or secondary raw materials, to create new circular passports, and to validate/refuse offers.

The needs entered by the “needs manager” will be submitted for validation by the Upcyclea supervisor in order to guarantee the quality of the published needs. The supervisor may refuse certain requirements, in particular if their content is obviously incomplete, or of a racist, homophobic or offensive nature, without the needs manager being able to object.

  • Manufacturer, to create as many circular passports as he or she wishes free of charge, and, depending on the subscription plan chosen, to request the rating of his or her passports by Upcyclea,
  • Transformations manager, to publish his transformations for free, and to accept/refuse requests.


Library of circular passports


By signing-up to the passports library on the upcyclea.cloud homepage, Users can view all circular passports published by the manufacturers.

Manufacturers can declare as many passports as they wish free of charge and all published passports will be visible in the library. On the other hand, the pictograms associated with passports, and resulting from Upcyclea’s passports rating actions, will only be visible if the manufacturer has taken out a “basic”, “standard” or “premium” subscription, and has requested a rating for its passports from Upcyclea.


Visibility Rules


When the User enters Data into myUpcyclea® to benefit from the Services, the User agrees that the Data:

  • Be visible to other Users, under the “visibility conditions” in place in myUpcyclea® and detailed below,
  • Be processed by myUpcyclea’s algorithms, for the purposes of the execution of these Terms and Conditions,
  • Be accessible by Upcyclea people who specifically have the role of Administrator for maintenance, problem correction, consistency checking or efficiency of myUpcyclea® and upcyclea.cloud.

The visibility conditions are as follows. For a given User account:

  • The circular passports created by a manufacturer can be viewed by anyone who has opened an access account to the circular passports library on upcyclea.cloud, the needs managers on upcyclea.cloud and anyone who has subscribed to the myUpcyclea SaaS. To do so, passports must have been previously published by the Upcyclea supervisor. The function to create passports is free and unlimited on upcyclea.cloud.

On the other hand, the passport-scoring pictograms will only be visible if the manufacturer has taken out a Basic, Standard or Premium subscription with Upcyclea, under the conditions defined by the subscription plan, i.e. for a given brand:

    • “Basic” subscription plan: ratings visible for up to 10 passports,
    • “Standard” subscription plan: visible ratings for passports max,
    • “Basic” subscription plan: ratings visible for all published passports.
  • The needs created by a needs manager are visible to all myUpcyclea SaaS subscribers, once these needs have been accepted by the Upcyclea supervisor (and therefore published). On the other hand, on upcyclea.cloud, requirements created by a needs manager are not visible to other needs managers. The needs creation function is free and unlimited on upcyclea.cloud. Note that, for a need to be public, the needs manager must check the box “public need”.
  • The transformations created by a transformations manager are visible to all users subscribed to the myUpcyclea SaaS, once these transformations have been accepted by the Upcyclea supervisor (and therefore published). On the other hand, on upcyclea.cloud, transformations created by a transformations manager are not visible to other transformations managers. The function of creating transformations is free and unlimited on upcyclea.cloud
  • The personal Data of each User is only visible and modifiable by the Administrator (except for the password which is not accessible to any User). In addition, an Administrator has the functionalities to connect directly to an account he manages.

The User is fully responsible for the quality, accuracy and updating of the Data entered in myUpcyclea® and upcyclea.cloud. Upcyclea cannot be held liable for this. It is therefore incumbent upon Users to make all checks that seem necessary or appropriate before using the Services or making their Data available.

In case of proven inconsistencies, problems detected by Upcyclea or reported by Users, Upcyclea may check and, if necessary, refuse to accept Data provided by the User. The User undertakes to take into account any requests for modification or deletion by Upcyclea (for example, concerning the modification of Data or its completeness, or the deletion of inconsistent Data), with a view to the proper use of the Services.

The role of myUpcyclea® and upcyclea.cloud is to put Users in contact with each other. Upcyclea is not responsible for the Contributions delivered (or not delivered) by the User, nor for any dissatisfaction or claim relating to a Contribution. The use of the Services does not diminish, modify or share (in particular with Upcyclea) the responsibility and obligations of Users among themselves. Each User exercises his or her professional practice in accordance with his or her own regulatory and legal obligations, his or her own ethical rules, norms and standards, and any other rules that may be applicable to him or her.

The programming of a Contribution on myUpcyclea® and et upcyclea.cloud constitutes a firm commitment on the part of the User towards one or more other User(s). For the proper use of the Services, each User is invited to provide all required information and undertakes to deliver the scheduled Contributions to its attention. In case of a problem encountered by a User in delivering a Contribution, the User must at the very least notify the other Users concerned, and if possible, reschedule the completion of the Contribution. The User acknowledges and agrees to assume exclusively the consequences of any failure to perform or failure to perform a Contribution.


5. Network and Access


Upcyclea puts in place the means necessary for the proper functioning of the Services. Upcyclea takes the necessary measures to maintain the continuity and quality of the Services.

The costs of accessing and using the telecommunications network (Internet access costs, telephone costs, etc.), as well as costs relating to the User’s equipment (computer, telephone, software, etc.) to access the Services are the responsibility of the User, in accordance with the terms and conditions set by his or her access providers and electronic communications operators.

It is the User’s responsibility to ensure that he has the technical and computer means necessary to use myUpcyclea® and upcyclea.cloud: an ADSL connection or higher as well as a computer with the latest version of the Chrome browser, Firefox or any other compatible web browser.

The User must also ensure that the computer configuration of his hardware/equipment is in good working order and does not contain any viruses.

6. Securing Access to myUpcyclea and upcyclea.cloud


To get free access to the library of circular passports, the user will have to sign up directly on upcyclea.cloud. He will automatically receive emails that will help him in his connection process.

In order to access myUpcyclea, Needs/Manufacturers/Transformations Identifiers are required. These Identifiers are provided to the User by Upcyclea via an activation email sent by myUpcyclea.

The purpose of the Identifiers is to reserve access to myUpcyclea® and the Services to the Administrator and the Users, to protect the integrity and availability of myUpcyclea®, as well as the integrity, availability and confidentiality of the Data as transmitted by the Users.

The User is entirely responsible for the use of his User profile and the Identifiers that have been given to him. It is the User’s responsibility to keep his or her Identifiers confidential, and to ensure that no unauthorized person has access to myUpcyclea®.

Any use of the Services, connection or transmission of Data carried out via a User with his/her Identifiers will be presumed to have been carried out by this User, under his/her exclusive responsibility, unless written and duly motivated denunciation is sent to Upcyclea.

Upcyclea shall not be held liable for the loss of one or more Identifiers and, in the absence of prior and regular written notice of objection to Upcyclea, for the damaging consequences of the use of the User profile by an unauthorised person. In case of loss or theft of one of the Identifiers, the User will follow the procedure set up by Upcyclea’s Administrator, allowing him to recover his Identifiers and renew his password.

Upcyclea has no power to control the veracity of the information transmitted by Users for the creation of a User profile. Consequently, Upcyclea cannot be held liable for false declarations or identity theft made by Users. Users undertake to provide Upcyclea with accurate information and to update it as it changes over time.

The User assumes responsibility for the protection of the equipment enabling him/her to access myUpcyclea®, upcyclea.cloud and the Services.

Upcyclea is not liable for any damage caused to the User’s equipment and/or Data via the Internet network or by other means that are not under the control of Upcyclea or are beyond its control.
