The user agrees that this is a non-exclusive and non-transferable license for the Services.

This reset, emptying the NFC device’s memories, allows their transfer to a new user. A black box integrated into the NFC HSM allows verification of this factory reset.

On international regulations regarding encryption products and services that may be considered dual-use products, Licensee may visit the following websites:
In Europe, the European Union controls the export, transit, brokering and technical assistance of dual-use items under Regulation (EU) 2021/821. In the United States, the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) of the Department of Commerce regulates the export of commercial and technological products under the Export Administration Regulations (EAR). If you hold a dual-use licensing agreement, you must provide cryptographic BDU-specific documents to the UDS as part of export permit applications. A copy of the documents issued by ANSSI is required. The supplier is therefore obliged to make a copy of these documents available to exporters.
17. Reminder of licensee’s responsibilities:

In Europe, the European Union controls the export, transit, brokering and technical assistance of dual-use items under Regulation (EU) 2021/821. In the United States, the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) of the Department of Commerce regulates the export of commercial and technological products under Export Administration Regulations (EAR). You may need a license to export dual-use products limited to encryption. In France, Dual-Use Property Service (SBDU) is competent licensing authority. For export of a means of cryptology from France, formalities with ANSSI must have been completed prior to application for a license.
