Terms of Service
I invite all my visitors and subscribers to have to have a great time on Americans in France (known as the 'Site'). But just so everything is clear, here are some rules and regulations. Failure to abide by the rules will result in immediate termination of access to Americans in France without refund (for subscribers) or recourse.
The Driving Study Guide section of this Site is to be used as an aide for the written French driving test. It is not a driving school and has no accreditation. It should be used in conjunction with an Auto Ecole. It is a study guide and should be used as such.
All of my products are refundable. If you ever buy any product and are dissatisfied for any reason return it within 30 days of receiving it for a refund equal to the price you paid less shipping costs.
If for some reason you purchase a product and it dose not arrive you will be refunded in full.
All of my services are refundable, up to 5 days after fulfillment. If you purchase a service and are dissatisfied for any reason, you will be entitled to a refund equal to the price you paid less any processing fees.
For Driving Study Guide section subscription:
During the first week you can cancel at any time and your money will be refunded, less any credit card processing or refund fees, sometimes this can be as high as 20% of the sale.
The privacy of our visitors to Americans in France is important to us.
At Americans in France, we recognize that privacy of your personal information is important. Here is information on what types of personal information we receive and collect when you use and visit Americans in France, and how we safeguard your information. We never sell your personal information to third parties.
As with most other websites, we collect and use the data contained in log files. The information in the log files include your IP (internet protocol) address, your ISP (internet service provider, such as AOL or Shaw Cable), the browser you used to visit our site (such as Internet Explorer or Firefox), the time you visited our site and which pages you visited throughout our site.
Cookies and Web Beacons
We also use third party advertisements on Americans in France to support our site. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our site, which will also send these advertisers (such as Google through the Google AdSense program) information including your IP address, your ISP , the browser you used to visit our site, and in some cases, whether you have Flash installed. This is generally used for geotargeting purposes (showing New York real estate ads to someone in New York, for example) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing cooking ads to someone who frequents cooking sites).
DoubleClick DART cookies
We also may use DART cookies for ad serving through Google’s DoubleClick, which places a cookie on your computer when you are browsing the web and visit a site using DoubleClick advertising (including some Google AdSense advertisements). This cookie is used to serve ads specific to you and your interests (”interest based targeting”). The ads served will be targeted based on your previous browsing history (For example, if you have been viewing sites about visiting Las Vegas, you may see Las Vegas hotel advertisements when viewing a non-related site, such as on a site about hockey). DART uses “non personally identifiable information”. It does NOT track personal information about you, such as your name, email address, physical address, telephone number, social security numbers, bank account numbers or credit card numbers. You can opt-out of this ad serving on all sites using this advertising by visiting http://www.doubleclick.com/privacy/dart_adserving.aspx
You can chose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences in programs such as Norton Internet Security. However, this can affect how you are able to interact with our site as well as other websites. This could include the inability to login to services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts.
Deleting cookies does not mean you are permanently opted out of any advertising program. Unless you have settings that disallow cookies, the next time you visit a site running the advertisements, a new cookie will be added.
Some content on this Site may contain inaccuracies or typographical errors. The publisher (that's me!) makes no representations about the accuracy, reliability, completeness, or timeliness of the material or about the results to be obtained from using the Site or the material.
