All of its contents are protected by French and international laws relating to copyright and intellectual property. Individual subscriptions (hereinafter “Subscriptions”) or multi-user licenses (hereinafter “Licenses”) do not entail any transfer of ownership rights of any kind to the Customer (the term “Customer” refers to any user or administrator of a Subscription or License).
METHODS OF DISTRIBUTION
AFRICA BUSINESS+ content can be viewed under one of the following subscription plans:
Individual Subscriptions – Individual Subscriptions are strictly personal. To view publications and access online services, Subscribers are required to provide a personal e-mail address (e.g. [email protected]). Content may not be shared in any way, either within or outside an organization. It may not be distributed by e-mail, nor on an intranet or extranet, nor reproduced on a blog or on social networks. Subscriptions are available in only one language, either French or English. The choice of language is made at the time of subscription and cannot be changed.
Multi-User Licenses – Multi-User Licenses (for 2 or more users) allow collective subscriptions within the same legal structure to be managed via a single invoice. They offer advantageous graduated discounts, but require Customers to comply with the same intellectual property rules as individual Subscriptions. The content of AFRICA BUSINESS+ can be accessed in French or in English, at the user’s choice. There are two types of Licenses:
– Named Licenses are intended for the exclusive use of the Subscribers in whose name they were purchased and to whom they are addressed. To view publications and access online services, Subscribers are required to provide a personal e-mail address (e.g. [email protected]).
– Collective Licenses are addressed to a set of readers who belong to the same legal structure, but who are not identified by name. To view publications and access online services, Subscribers have a collective e-mail address (ex: [email protected]).
RESTRICTIONS ON EXTRACTION AND INDEXING
Under Article L342-1 of Law No. 98-536 of 1 July 1998 of the French Intellectual Property Code (transposing Directive 96/9/EC of 11 March 1996), AFRICA MEDIA GROUP FRANCE prohibits “the extraction, by permanent or temporary transfer of all or a qualitatively or quantitatively substantial part of the content of AFRICA BUSINESS+ onto another medium, by any means and in any form whatsoever.”
In practice, the use of robots to extract a substantial part of the content of AFRICA BUSINESS+ is prohibited, unless written permission is obtained.

Readers authorized under a Subscription or License agreement may print out an article, but may under no circumstances distribute it to third parties, including within their own company (whether by e-mail, intranet or hard copy). The dissemination on social networks of articles published on the AFRICA BUSINESS+ website is strictly prohibited, except in the case of a quotation.

ORDERING AND MANAGING SUBSCRIPTIONS AND LICENSES
Any order for a Subscription or License implies full and unconditional acceptance of these General Terms and Conditions of Sale and Use.
Start date – In the case of new subscriptions, the Subscription or License takes effect upon receipt of the duly validated order. In the case of renewals, the new Subscription or License takes effect on the expiry of the previous Subscription or License. Any other arrangements (retroactive subscription, starting on a specific date, etc.) must be specified at the time of ordering.
Cancellation – Subscription and License orders are considered firm and definitive from the moment of their reception by AFRICA MEDIA GROUP FRANCE. Under the prevailing legal provisions, Customers may exercise their right of withdrawal during the 14-day period following the order. However, the Customer shall be liable for an amount, calculated on a pro-rata basis, corresponding to the length of the Subscription or License period elapsing between the registration of the order and its cancellation.
Automatic renewal – By opting for automatic renewal, Subscribers benefit from a 5% discount on the basic rate each year. Six weeks before the expiry date, Subscribers are sent an invoice for a one-year subscription renewal. If they do not wish to renew, they have only to return the invoice, bearing the instruction “Cancel”, within six weeks following the invoice date. Beyond this deadline, no cancellations will be accepted; the Subscription or License will be deemed to have been renewed, and the corresponding amount will be due in full.
PAYMENT TERMS AND CONDITIONS
An invoice for the amount of the Subscription or License is issued at the time the service is initiated. It is sent electronically, in PDF format, by the account manager to the Customer (or to the billing contact designated by the Customer when placing the order).
