According to his professional status, the Specialist must contact the relevant tax, administrative and social authorities in order to provide all the information required by the Kang company.
For this purpose, it is recalled that the Specialist may act as a freelance or as a company, in which case it will be necessary to justify his position as a partner.
The Specialist is subject to the respective obligations according to his legal status, in this case registration with the social security authorities or the commercial register. The Specialist must provide the Kang company with all the affiliations with the respective administrative authorities.
Depending on his legal status, the Specialist must provide Kang with a number of mandatory documents:
The Specialist who does not provide Kang with these documents may be refused access to the service and/or may not be able to receive payments for his services.

The right to use the system only begins when the Specialist has accessed the interface of the www.cocotarot.com site.
It should be recalled that there is no relationship of subordination between the Specialist and the Kang company and that the Specialist must first justify the payment of his social contributions to the Kang company.
The Kang company:
Consequently, Kang has the absolute right to refuse the candidacy of a Specialist and/or to delete any profile that does not meet its requirements.

The Kang company reserves the right to refuse access to a Specialist or to terminate his access to the service with prior notice within 15 days by mail or post, from the moment in which the Specialist does not comply with the conditions requested by Kang, when the behavior of the Specialist does not correspond to the ethics and characteristics of the service and/or goes against these general conditions of use of the service.

The foregoing taking into account that this technique of false comments constitutes a discrediting conduct typified in the regulations, and that the comments or positive notes included by the Specialist himself under the guise of a satisfied or dissatisfied user may also constitute a denigrating conduct towards other providers with the aim of affecting the image and reputation of the services and services offered by other professionals registered on the platform.
