62. Where a transaction is carried out by means of a technology-based document supported by a certificate appropriate to the transaction, in accordance with subparagraphs 4 and 6 of the first paragraph of section 52, each of the persons referred to in section 61 is liable for any damage resulting from the inaccuracy or invalidity of the certificate or of any information contained in the directory, unless the person shows that he or she has committed no fault in the performance of his or her obligations. Where two or more of them are liable, the obligation to provide reparation for the damage is a joint obligation ; if liability cannot be apportioned, it is apportioned equally among them. In addition, if there is no fault on the part of any of those persons, reparation for the damage shall be provided by them jointly and equally.
None of those persons may refuse to assume liability under this section.
