select the files he wants to store and transfer
them to the servers of DSTORAGE via the

completed, the User will be given a unique
and secure hypertext link to access the
content and another hypertext link allowing
him to remove it from the DSTORAGE servers.
The User accepts that the use of the services

servers in accordance with the legal
provisions, as well as the display of
advertising offers.
To access the services as a “registered”, the
