T and Cs, Privacy & Accessibility

Please read these terms and conditions carefully on subscribing to frenchteacher.net.
When you are registered with the site, you will be given a username and a password. It is not possible to change the username without starting a new yearly subscription. You may change your password by entering your Profile or by using the Lost Password link.

If you do not receive the automatically generated password, contact the webmaster. Some email services block such email messages.

Frenchteacher.net is a WordPress site and the plugin s2member pro is used to maintain the membership database.

By registering with frenchteacher.net, you acknowledge the terms and conditions and you will not divulge your username and password to anyone who is unregistered or not a member of your educational establishment. If you subscribe as a school department, all teachers in the department, but not pupils, will be entitled to access all resources on the site whether in the educational institution or at home. Resources from the site may be shared across a school intranet or virtual learning platform. Login details must not be shared across a group of schools, e.g. a multi-academy trust. The password must not be divulged to students. You must not put your login details on any websites or intranet. If you suspect any unauthorised access to the site using your login details, you must inform the webmaster immediately. If these conditions are breached your membership will be closed without a refund.

You also agree to use the resources on this site only for lawful purposes. Failure to do so will render your login invalid. These Terms and Conditions will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of England and Wales. Disputes arising shall be exclusively subject to the jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales.

It is illegal for a company or any profit-making organisation to redistribute login details to any third party.

Subscription fee

The fee is valid for one year from the registration date and it has to be pre-paid by cheque, PayPal, BACS, debit or credit card. Schools will receive a receipt for cheques received. For online subscriptions you will automatically receive an acknowledgement which may serve as a receipt.
The fee is £30 per year. Credit card/Paypal payments may incur a small surcharge, depending on the country from which payments are made. Subscriptions can be cancelled, but refunds will normally only be made in the event of an error during sign-up, e.g. if a subscriber inadvertently sets up two subscriptions. Refunds can only be made via Paypal or personal cheque in the UK.

Renewal

Your subscription will not automatically renew, but you should receive an email reminder a few days before expiry. The expiry date is visible when you log in to an existing account.

No part of the website may be downloaded, reproduced, republished, posted, broadcast or transmitted in any way without express permission of the webmaster.

PRIVACY POLICY and ACCESSIBILITY STATEMENT
________________________________________

Last updated: 12.12.20

This page informs you of my policies regarding the collection, use and disclosure of Personal Information I receive from users of frenchteacher.net.

Information Collection and Use

When you sign up to my site, you provide me with certain personally identifiable information that can be used to contact or identify you. This is your chosen username, name and email address, which be your personal or school email address. The only people with access to this data are the author of the site Steven Smith and the web designer Harry Green. None of this information is shared with any third party.

Log Data

If you subscribe to the site online your computer's Internet Protocol ("IP") address is stored on my database, which is organised using a WordPress third party plugin called s2member Pro. Only myself and Harry Green are able to see this information.

Communications

I may use your Personal Information to contact you, for example if a reminder is needed to pay an outstanding invoice. You will receive no newsletters, marketing or promotional materials.

Cookies

Cookies are files with small amount of data, which may include an anonymous unique identifier. Cookies are sent to your browser from a web site and stored on your computer's hard drive.
I do not use "cookies" to collect information. You can instruct your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent.

Security

The security of your Personal Information is important, but no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. My site uses the latest https protocols to protect you when you pay for a subscription.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy is effective as of 21.5.18 and will remain in effect except with respect to any changes in its provisions in the future, which will be in effect immediately after being posted on this page. It was reviewed on 12.12.20.

I reserve the right to update or change the Privacy Policy at any time and you should check this Privacy Policy periodically. Your continued use of the Service after I post any modifications to the Privacy Policy on this page will constitute your acknowledgment of the modifications and your consent to abide and be bound by the modified Privacy Policy.

If I make any material changes to this Privacy Policy, I will notify you either through the email address you have provided, or by placing a prominent notice on the site.

ACCESSIBILITY

I want as many people as possible to be able to use this website.

Compatibility with Browsers and Assistive Technology

The site uses an up to date WordPress responsive platform, designed to be compatible with the following assistive technologies:

Mobile Phones
PC and Mac Computers
All Tablet Devices
All known Browsers
Screen Readers

For example, that means you should be able to:

zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
navigate the website using just a keyboard
navigate nearly all the website using speech recognition software
listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)
change colours, contrast levels and fonts

The website text as clear and simple as possible to understand, but the very nature of the site means that not all images come with a written description and screen readers will struggle with two languages at once.
