Charte Groupe Thématique (Utilisateur)


Campus France offers theme groups, called discussion forums, to the France Alumni platform users. By accessing and using these discussion forums, you accept this charter, which defines your rights and obligations.


 Your acceptance of this charter is a proof that you read its provisions and is considered an irrevocable acceptance of these.


 Each user may create one or several discussion forum(s). The effective creation of discussion forums is subject to prior approval by local webmasters and administrators of the France Alumni platform.The creator of a discussion forum may request a linking of his/her forum to the page of each institutional player involved in his/her theme. Approval or rejection of the linking is decided by the institutional players. The discussion forum is only active after its linking to at least one entity.


 You may usually access discussion forums on the France Alumni platform on a 24 hour/7 day basis throughout the year without this generating any performance obligation from Campus France. Campus France has the right, without prior notice, to temporarily close access to discussion forums to operate updates, modifications or any other change deemed necessary. Campus France is not responsible for damages of any kind that may result from these changes and/or of any temporarily or complete interruption of all or part of the forums.


 In order to access discussion forums, you must have access to a terminal and telecommunication equipment necessary to connect to the Internet. Connection and telecommunication costs are at your charge. You must also have a valid email address.


Anyone who wishes to participate in discussion forums must first belong to the France Alumni Network by first creating a user account on the Alumni platform. Discussion forums are private groups. Their contents are only visible by members of the concerned forum. Access to discussion forums is operated through forums, by registration request sent to the forum creator that approves or not the participation of the user. Once registered, you must login using your login information and password specified during the creation of your user account to access discussion forums. Login and password are private, unique and personal. You are the only person in charge of their creation. The access to discussion forums requires prior acceptance of this charter.
