An individual with the legal capacity to enter into contracts on behalf of a legal entity may contact the Company using the following contact information to request the issuance of a Quote based on the selected options (hereinafter referred to as the “Quote”):

  •  By postal mail: AFRICA MEDIA GROUP, Subscription Department, 57 bis, rue d’Auteuil – 75016 Paris 16, France.
  • By email: [email protected]

The Company will provide a Quote specifying the organizational scope, including the employees who will be eligible for the Subscription, the options involved, and the Subscription price. The Quote is subject to the express written approval of the requesting party.

Unless stated otherwise in the Quote, it is valid for one month. If the Quote is not validated by both parties within this period, it will no longer be valid.

The Applicant, or any other individual with the legal capacity to enter into contracts on behalf of a legal entity, must duly complete the Quote, including the designation of a permanent employee of the legal entity as the Subscription Manager (hereinafter referred to as the “Subscription Manager”), and sign it, along with any necessary stamps, before returning it to the Company using the contact information provided in Article 2, either by mail or electronically.

The validation of the Quote constitutes the formation of the Subscription contract between the Company and the Subscriber.


Unless otherwise stated and within the limits indicated in the Quote, any permanent employee within the organizational scope specified in the Quote can become a beneficiary of the Subscription (hereinafter referred to as the “Subscription Beneficiary”).

In accordance with the Subscription terms specified in the Quote, Subscription Beneficiaries access the Services through their Account or IP address.

When access to the Services requires the creation of an Account, Subscription Beneficiaries will use their credentials for each login to the Services.

The credentials are intended to reserve access to the Services for the beneficiaries and to protect the integrity and availability of the Services.

The Subscription Beneficiaries’ credentials are personal and confidential. They can only be changed upon request by a Subscriber or at the initiative of the Company, provided that the Subscriber is informed in advance.

The Subscriber is fully responsible for the use of the credentials by the Subscription Beneficiaries and is responsible for safeguarding the access codes provided to them.

The Subscriber shall ensure that no unauthorized person has access to the Services, except as authorized by the Company.

In general, the Subscriber undertakes to take all necessary security measures to keep their credentials confidential and not to disclose them in any form. The Subscriber expressly acknowledges that any use of the Services with their login credentials will be deemed to have been carried out by them.

The email address of the Subscription Beneficiaries must comply with the type of address of the subscribing legal entity (e.g., [email protected]).

Subscription Beneficiaries are automatically bound by these terms and conditions.

In the event that access to the Services is granted through the Subscriber’s IP address, and if a third party gains unauthorized access to the Services due to the use of the same IP address, the Company reserves the right to immediately suspend the Subscription. In such a situation, the Company undertakes to promptly offer the Subscriber an alternative solution to ensure their continued access to the Subscription.


The paid Services are exclusively accessible through a Subscription.

In exchange for the Services, the Subscriber shall pay the price indicated in the Quote (hereinafter referred to as the “Price”).

The Price indicated is exclusive of taxes, regardless of the Subscriber’s place of residence or registered office.

If applicable, the VAT rate in effect on the day the Quote is issued is provided for informational purposes.

It should be noted that any discount or promotion granted by the Company to the Subscriber and specified in the Quote is only applicable for the initial Subscription period specified in the Quote and will not apply to the Subscription upon automatic renewal.

A. Payment terms

Unless otherwise specified in the Quote, the Price of the Subscription is payable upon receipt of the issued invoice, by bank transfer to the Company’s bank account, by credit card, or by check made payable to the Company and sent by registered mail with acknowledgment of receipt.

In the case of payment by check, the Subscription will only be effective upon successful clearance of the check. Any check must be sent by registered mail with acknowledgment of receipt.
The Subscriber warrants to the Company that they have the necessary authorizations to use the chosen method of payment.

B. Duration, Cancellation

Unless otherwise specified in the Quote, the Subscription begins on the day of its subscription, subject to payment of the Price, for a period of 12 (twelve) months, from the same date (hereinafter referred to as the “Initial Period”).

The Subscription then automatically renews for successive periods of the same duration as the Initial Period (hereinafter referred to, together with the Initial Period, as the “Periods”), from the same date, unless terminated by the Company or the Subscriber no later than 30 (thirty) days before the end of the current Subscription Period.

The cancellation of the Subscription by the Subscriber shall be made by email to the contact details mentioned in Article 2.

In the event of early termination of the Subscription, the User remains responsible for paying the full Price.
Cancellation of the Subscription does not result in unsubscribing from the Site. Users will still be able to access certain limited content.

C. Price revision

The Price of the Subscription referred to in Article 7, which does not take into account any exceptional discounts or promotions granted for the initial duration of the Subscription, may be revised by the Company at any time, at its sole discretion. The Company is not obligated to provide prior notification of such revision.

The Subscriber will be informed of any tariff modification relating to the Services referred to in Article 6, which exceeds 4% (four percent) of the Subscription amount, excluding discounts or promotions, by the Company through any relevant written means.

The new price will apply upon the renewal of the Subscription following its entry into force.

D. Invoicing

The Services are subject to invoices for Subscription Periods, which are communicated to the Subscription Manager through any relevant means.

E. Payment Delays and Incidents

Payment Delay: In accordance with Article L 441-6 of the French Commercial Code, late payment penalties at an annual rate of 20% and a fixed indemnity of €40 are due if payment is not made on the day following the payment due date indicated on the invoice. Failure to meet payment deadlines will result in the suspension of services until the situation is regularized. If a previous order showed a payment default or delay, the seller may refuse to complete the sale unless satisfactory guarantees or immediate payment are provided. No discount for early payment is granted. This transaction is subject to French law. Any dispute between the parties regarding invoicing, payments, or the execution of services falls within the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of Paris.

F. Right of Withdrawal
The Subscriber has a right of withdrawal within a period of 14 (fourteen) days from the validation of the Quote.

The Subscriber may exercise this right by sending a completed form, as provided in the Annex hereto, or any other unambiguous statement expressing their intention to withdraw, to the Company at the contact details mentioned in the header of these terms and conditions, before the expiration of the aforementioned period.

In the event of exercise of the right of withdrawal, the Company will reimburse the Subscriber for all payments received from them without undue delay and in any event no later than 14 (fourteen) days from the day on which the Company was informed of the Subscriber’s decision to withdraw. The reimbursement will be made using the same means of payment as the one used for the initial transaction, unless the Subscriber expressly agrees to a different means. In any case, this reimbursement will not incur any fees for the Subscriber.

If the Subscriber has requested that the Services commence before the expiration of the withdrawal period by checking the corresponding box in the Quote, they will not be able to exercise their right of withdrawal within the specified period. In this case, the Subscriber will be liable to the Company for the full price of the Subscription.
