A valid email address and password are necessary to open an account. Additional information such as your name and address will also be requested if you open an e-wallet or take out a subscription.
We promise to protect the personal information that you communicate to us when you navigate on our site and not to distribute it to partners or external service providers.
You need only to indicate your email and password in the identification area at the top right hand of the page or in the identification box. Once the connection has been set up, your name or email address appears in the “My account” bar at the top of the page.
This option enables you to be recognised immediately when you navigate on our site without having to identify yourself. You can activate automatic identification by using the identification section in “My account”.
For security reasons, we advise you not to activate this option on a public or shared computer.
You can modify your connection data (email address and password) in your “My account” space.
We advise you to remove cookies and then to refresh the page (button F5 or Command + R/Control+R). If the problem persists, please contact our technical service.
You will receive email notifications every time an article on your topic of interest is published on our websites. This service is completely free of charge.
You can set up a notification in three different ways by using:

To make changes to your subscription plan, please contact customer service.
You can see and/or print your invoices in your “My account” space.
You can only access articles to which you have subscribed. A subscription to the French edition does not give you access to the English edition and vice-versa. To consult an article from another publication, you must subscribe to the publication or credit your e-wallet. As a subscriber, you get a reduction of 15% on articles not included in your subscription.
It is possible your subscription has ended or has been suspended. You can check on your subscription at any time in your account.
Each subscription is personal. It is destined for the exclusive use of the subscriber in whose name it has been taken out and to whom it is addressed. Only one copy can be made for private use. Subscribers can print or download articles (PDF editions, Insiders and special reports) for their personal use but cannot under any circumstances distribute them to third parties even within their own companies whether by email, paper copy or intranet.
Your subscription may have expired or been suspended. You can check the status of your subscription at any time by going into your “My account” space. If your subscription is still activated, we suggest that you consult your « junk mail » folder since certain mailbox providers filter out emails with attachments. If you are having reception problems, do not hesitate to download your publication online.
To open PDF files, you need to have a version of Adobe Reader more recent than 8. Messages reading “An error has occurred while opening this file” or “Your file is damaged” mean that you must update your version of Adobe Reader.
The e-wallet allows you to view or download any paying content on all Indigo Publications sites when and how you often you like. Credit your e-wallet by bank card or PayPal, with a minimum of EUR 30 (USD 30/GBP 30). Your credit will be immediately available on Africa Intelligence, Intelligence Online and La Lettre A.
Prices are indicated per article and your e-wallet balance will be updated each time you make a purchase.
The name of the account holder and his/her address are required for billing purposes. An intra-Community VAT number is also required where applicable.
There is no expiry date for your e-wallet or the balance it contains.
Once purchased, articles and documents remain available indefinitely. You can consult or download them at any time.
All purchases made with an e-wallet are strictly personal. Only one private copy is authorised. That means that you can print or download articles and documents solely for your personal use. You may in no circumstances distribute them to third parties whether by email, paper copy or intranet.

To avoid fraud, some banks set up an additional security code to validate online purchases so as to confirm that the user of the card is the holder. For more information on this, we suggest you contact your bank.
