Conditions of use for our client reviews

ESF gives its customers the possibility to evaluate its offers and services and to post reviews or comments via an on-line tool.
In the endeavour to be ethical and transparent, ESF customer review website is in accordance with the NF Z74--501 norms "Online customer reviews" (certification in progress).
The ESF is always seeking customer reviews for which purpose they record details of ‘email’ and ‘lesson dates’. All other customers can submit an unsollicited review on this website. All ESF customers can post a review, whether they are satisfied or not.
The on-line posting of a rating or comment by web-users pre-supposes the acceptance and respect of the present conditions of use.


The main objective in appealing for reviews is to listen to ESF customers and to be made aware of their satisfaction levels in order to make improvements. However, it is also a forum for expression, allowing each customer to publish their review whereby offering guidance to other consumers in their search for information in a fair and constructive manner.

The aim then is to reveal all the current reviews, to respect peoples’ points of view and to allow web-users to forge an opinion for themselves.

The procedure of collecting, processing and returning reviews for ESF is independent from advertising and sales operations carried out on

When a review is submitted, its author confirms that they:
- Are a physical being
- Are discussing their own personal experience as a consumer
- Do not have a conflict of interest with ESF.

In order to verify the authenticity of a review, the author of the review accepts to be contacted by email or by telephone.

Client reviews published on the website are exclusively authentic reviews. They may be submitted in two ways: The customer has either been contacted by email following their course at ESF or he wishes to post a "spontaneous" review on the website

The comments or reviews must not:
- Be defamatory, injurious, obscene, offensive, violent or with the aim to incite violence, political, racist or xenophobic nor fundamentally contravene the current laws and rules in practice, nor the rights of individuals or moral standards
- Provoke murder or suicide, incite hate or discrimination
- Make reference to or mention views expressed by other web-users
- Be used for personal or professional gain; notably for advertising purposes
- Contain personal information.

All comments will be stored for 2 years.

The overall rating displayed is a simple calculation of the average rating given for these reviews. This average is weighted by no other criteria.

The review of the moment is an authentic review selected twice weekly from amongst those reviews posted by ESF customers within the last 30 days. The rules for the selection of these reviews is as follows: from amongst all the reviews scoring 5/5 or 4/5 all holiday offers included, we select the one with the fullest information. In the event of a web-user selecting a filter on a particular holiday offer, the review of the moment will relate to the holiday offer in question.

In the case of an evaluation revealing dissatisfaction, it will first be transferred to the customer service department at ESF in order for it to be analysed and dealt with. In that event, ESF may contact the web-user by email or telephone (if a number has been communicated and authorisation given for its use) then, once dealt with, the initially expressed review, or the reviewer’s revised version after handling of the issue raised, will be published. These reviews are collected and published through the platform Q3 AMP, edited by the company Q3 SAS, details of which can be consulted on


All comments are subject to processing. For this reason, reviews will be published 15 days after their reception date.

These reviews may become the object of a comment posted by ESF with the aim of providing web-users with supplementary information.

ESF also reserves the right, without the need for justification, to withhold from posting on-line or to erase at any moment any comments whose content includes personal information relative to the author of the comment or to any third party, or which do not appear to conform with the nature of the site or to meet the necessary requirements. Notably, this includes comments which are injurious or defamatory either to any legal entity or physical individual or which would be against the law and particularly those including comments of a defamatory, violent, racist or paedophile nature or inciting murder or suicide or inciting hate or discrimination. Comments including information unrelated to the product concerned or its seller will be excluded. The content of comments must not infringe copyrights or any third party rights.

ESF will not be held responsible for the publishing or not of comments.
