Creating a personal space is a prerequisite for any connection to the Application. To this end, the User will be asked to provide certain personal information.

Refusal by a User to provide such information will preclude the creation of a personal area and, in turn, connection to the Application.
During the creation of the personal space, the User is prompted to generate a personalised password. The User
has the possibility to change their password at any time. This password is the guarantee of confidentiality of information contained in the personal space. The User should therefore refrain from sending it or disclosing it to a third party.

This exclusion is without prejudice to the possibility for World Iconnections to initiate judicial proceedings against the User, where justified.
4.4. Data Publication
Users have the ability to publish Data on the Application to create and/or edit Business Cards, manage their profile and manage collected Business Cards.
