PERSONAL DATA AND COOKIES
USE OF PERSONAL DATA
The processing of the User personal data is based on his consent, except when the data are necessary for the performance of a contract, or to comply with a legal obligation. In cases where such processing is based on his consent, he may withdraw his consent at any time in order to stop it, in accordance with our Privacy policy. Withdrawal of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of the processing operation based on the consent given prior to such withdrawal.

All the information the services collect is useful to the operation of the service, including improving the User experience, improving page display and operation, and, where appropriate, providing customized advertising results. Some of this data may be used if the User has expressly consented, in particular for receiving newsletters from the forums on which he has registered.

The User has the right to access, modify, rectify and delete his personal data collected, as well as the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority. The modalities of the exercise of these rights are detailed in our Privacy policy.

The use of the services offered by forumotion.com is subordinated to the reading and acceptance by the User of the Privacy policy .

USE OF COOKIES
A cookie is a text file containing a limited amount of information, which is downloaded to the user's device when he visits a website. It allows the forum to recognize the user during his next visits to offer him an optimal navigation experience.

forumotion.com's services may involve the use of cookies, for technical, advertising, audience measurement, or social network modules purposes.

The User may at any time refuse and/or delete cookies stored by the services on his browser as explained in our Privacy policy. The User is informed of the possible impact that this choice may have on the proper functioning of the services.


PURCHASES AND REFUNDS
forumotion.com provides Users with optional paid services, such as "packages", domain name, or advertisements removal. By subscribing to one of these services, the User agrees to pay forumotion.com the monthly or annual subscription fee indicated. Payments are debited in advance on the day he purchases the service and cover its use for the chosen monthly or annual subscription period.

The purchase of products and services from forumotion.com entitles the buyer to a right of withdrawal within 15 days of the purchase, unless such products and services have been used in any way. In this case, the withdrawal period ends and it becomes impossible to cancel the purchase or obtain a refund. Outside the withdrawal period, no products or services are refundable, even if they have not been used and have not expired.

The credits expense, the subscription to a "package", the purchase of a domain name or the use of any service such as the deletion of advertisements is, within the meaning of these Terms, a "use" of a paid service. The User expressly consents by these Terms that these services may be provided before the expiry of the withdrawal period, resulting in the waiver of this period.

The modalities of exercise of the withdrawal and refund period provided by the present Terms do not concern the paying products and services purchased through a third-party partner of forumotion.com (contact directly the partner in this case, which will decide at its sole discretion whether or not to proceed with the refund). The withdrawal period and refunds do not concern products offered by forumotion.com, including but not exclusively during a contest.

To exercise its right of withdrawal for a paid service which has not been "used" in accordance with the provisions and which does not fall under the exclusion cases mentioned above, the User may contact forumotion.com directly:  or +334.92.02.15.76.

If the User believes that forumotion.com has billed him in error, he should contact the company within 90 days of the concerned billing. No refunds will be given for fees charged more than 90 days ago.

forumotion.com reserves the right to refuse a refund request if there are reasons to believe that the User is trying to take unfair advantage of this refund policy (for example, by repeated requests for refunds for the same service or product), if he is violating these Terms or if forumotion.com has reasons to suspect that he is using the services fraudulently or that the User account is being used fraudulently by a third party.

This refund policy has no impact on the User statutory rights.


FORUM IMPORT
The Administrator of a phpBB, InVision, or PunBB forum with a self-hosted installation may import it on the forumotion.com service, as long as he certifies that he is the sole owner and that the forum complies with these Terms of Use.

To do so, he has to create a new forum, and to request, on the last page of this process, the import of a forum. The Administrator must then include the database of the said forum, using the form provided. While waiting for the importation of the forum, the User must not make any modification on the newly created forum, as the content of this one will be overwritten by the importation of the forum.

The User is informed by e-mail of the various stages of the import process (reception, in progress, finalization, or failure). The User may contact the company about his import request via the e-mail address given, or the official support forum.

forumotion.com makes every effort to ensure that the import is carried out under the best possible conditions and within the announced deadlines. Nevertheless, it is not possible to guarantee these delays nor the final result of the import which remains intimately linked to the structure of the database of the forum to import. The applicant of an import therefore accepts the possibility of having to make certain adjustments on his forum in order to make it conform to the original.

In any event, the import request, the content of the database to be imported and the final forum imported on forumotion.com remain the sole responsibility of the Forum Administrator who initiated the import request. He also unconditionally accepts that forumotion.com reserves the right to refuse any import request deemed not being compliant with these Conditions.


AGREEMENT AND MODIFICATION
By using forumotion.com's services, the User acknowledges without reservation, limitation or qualification that he has read and agrees to these Terms, and he agrees to comply with them, without prejudice to the possible application of other conditions or rules to certain specific services.

These Terms may be amended or modified at any time, at forumotion.com's discretion. These changes are effective immediately for new Users. All pre-existing Users must comply with the changes made within 30 days of being notified by any means.
