On behalf of ARVAL, the website and the online training tool will be provided and operated by Darniche Interactive (, tel. 0033 (1) 46 22 90 56). Some of the information used in Clear Drive is the personal data of employees of ASL Fleet Services clients (e.g. the names of the fleet managers and vehicle users) (hereinafter referred to collectively as: "Customer Data"). You are an employee of a client of ASL Fleet Services, which uses Clear Drive Training. According to the authorization granted to you by your employer, you intend to use Clear Drive Training.

By accessing Clear Drive Training, you declare that you have (i) been authorized by your employer ("the Client") to access and use Clear Drive Training, and (ii) agree to the following Clear Drive User Terms and Conditions.

Access and Usage Rights; Personal Use
You have been authorized by the Client to access and use Clear Drive Training.
The access and usage rights include the temporary, non-exclusive, non-sub-licensable right to use Clear Drive online training provided by ASL Fleet Services, the right to view online content. (hereinafter referred to as "Access and Usage Rights").
The Access and Usage Right granted to you is personal and non-transferable. Use by third parties, irrespective of the form of this use, is prohibited.
The Access and Usage Right granted to you can be withdrawn at any time, in particular in case of a breach of these online user terms and conditions, by the customer or ASL Fleet Services, and in any case will end, if (a) you cease being an employee of the client's company, or (b) the client's access and usage right ends.

Access to Clear Drive Training is restricted by passwords and user names. You will be assigned a user name and you will create the password yourself during the registration process for Clear Drive Training.

The password and user name is intended only for personal use by you and is non-transferable. The password and user name must be treated confidentially and kept in a safe place. You are aware that by passing on the passwords and user names provided to you without the prior consent of ASL Fleet Services you are breaching these Clear Drive User Terms and Conditions.

As soon as you become aware of the loss, theft, disclosure or misuse of your user ID and/or of the password or if you have cause to believe that there has been such an occurrence, ASL Fleet Services must be informed of this fact immediately in writing or by e-mail.

You are responsible for any non-compliance with the Agreement and/or improper use of your passwords and/or user names and will be liable to ASL Fleet Services for all losses incurred by ASL Fleet Services in connection with use that is not in compliance with the Agreement and/or improper use of passwords and/or user names.

Clear Drive Training, websites affected by this Agreement (in particular the characteristics of their structure and design) and all of their contents (which include particular information, text, graphics, logos, audio, video and animation files, and other documents) (hereinafter referred to collectively as "Industrial Property Rights") are protected by copyright by ASL Fleet Services or third parties and are subject to trademark and other intellectual property rights belonging to ASL Fleet Services, its affiliated companies and/or other third parties. The customer and its authorized users are only permitted to use these rights for the agreed purposes.

Websites may contain links to third party websites from non-ASL Fleet Services, or frames of other websites. These links and frames are only made available in order to be user-friendly and serve the exclusive purpose of informing clients and/or their employees about other sources of related information on the internet. These are not intended as an endorsement of this website or its contents, not even an implied endorsement, nor are these intended to indicate a recommendation of the operator or a reference to any connection with the operators of these websites. Clients and/or their employees therefore use these websites at their own risk.
If and to the extent that ASL Fleet Services provide a link or frame to a website created by the client and/or its employees or that is used by them, then only the client or its employees are responsible for their content. ASL Fleet Services may remove this link or frame from the website at its own discretion.

ASL Fleet Services creates and operates the Clear Drive Training with the utmost care. The content that can be accessed via Clear Drive Training constitutes information that is not legally binding and resources to support the client and his staff in the reduction of CO2 emissions and the fleet's fuel consumption.

ASL Fleet Services is not responsible for the information available via Clear Drive Training being up-to-date, correct, and complete. The liability of ASL Fleet Services that the information available via Clear Drive Training is up-to-date, correct, and complete is ruled out, unless ASL Fleet Services acts in an intentional or grossly negligent manner.

ASL Fleet Services will take all reasonable and appropriate technical measures to protect the data and other information made available by the Client and you and saved in Clear Drive Training from unauthorized access by third parties. ASL Fleet Services cannot, however, guarantee the absolute security of the data.

The legal liability of ASL Fleet Services for compensation (including, but not limited to, losses resulting from breaching the obligation to protect client data from unauthorized access by third parties, or from the loss of client data) is limited as follows:

ASL Fleet Services is liable for unlimited losses arising from satisfying this Agreement, insofar as ASL Fleet Services is culpable of intent or gross negligence in this regard. In addition, ASL Fleet Services will be liable in an amount limited to the typically foreseeable loss at the time of entering into the Agreement for slightly negligent breaches of material obligations (i.e. a contractual obligation, the fulfilment of which is essential to the proper performance of the Agreement, the violation of which is a risk to the contractual purpose and which the client regularly relies on to be complied with).

ASL Fleet Services will not be liable for the slightly negligent breach of essential obligations arising from the debt relationship.

The above limitation of liability shall not apply in cases of a mandatory statutory liability, particularly under the Product Liability Act, liability for assuming a specific guarantee or liability for culpably caused personal injuries.

ASL Fleet Services is not responsible for the continuous availability of Clear Drive Training. ASL Fleet Services is authorized to cease or suspend operation of Clear Drive Training courses at any time in full or in part, or to refuse or reduce access to the latter in full or in part (hereafter "Limitation"). If and insofar as the Limitation is not immediately necessary for legal, technical, safety, or other important reasons from the perspective of ASL Fleet Services, ASL Fleet Services will give the client prior notice of the Limitation with reasonable notice. ASL Fleet Services will also be authorized to modify Clear Drive Training without prior notification of the client. Before a significant change (e.g. general discontinuation of Clear Drive Training) ASL Fleet Services will inform Clients about the extent of the changes and take into account their legitimate interests.

ASL Fleet Services is in principle entitled to unilaterally change the Clear Drive User Terms and Conditions.

ASL Fleet Services will inform you in advance of any modification to these User Terms and Conditions in an appropriate manner. In this case, you will be notified of the modification of these User Terms and Conditions again when you next access Clear Drive Training and you will be invited to agree to an appropriate on-line consent form by checking a box. At that time, you will be given the opportunity to download, store and print the new version of the User Terms and Conditions.

The exclusive place of jurisdiction for any disputes arising from or in connection with these User Terms and Conditions is the headquarters of ASL Fleet Services.

The law of the Federal Republic of Germany will apply to these User Terms and Conditions.

If any provision of these User Terms and Conditions is completely or partially invalid, this will not affect the validity of the remaining provisions.
