General Policies

1. The American is an online-only pro bono publication that accepts limited advertising through Google AdSense. It does not accept promotional content. Anyone who receives a subscription or related bill from The American should consider such a bill a scam.

2. The American prizes free speech, but reserves the right to publish only that content it considers appropriate to its ethical standards and goals. It is a rigorously pro bono project based in Rome, Italy whose contributors, whether regular or occasional, receive no compensation of any kind aside from the satisfaction of airing their views.

3. The American encourages outside contributions and reader comments, which can be sent via email or posted to the magazine’s Facebook page. It does not censor writers based on political or ideological point of view. Editors will however delete or abridge comments that are abusive, use gratuitously foul language, or include ad hominem attacks.

4. The American does not traffic in email addresses or sell or share any personal data in its possession to any outside source or bidder. If you provide information about yourself in emails or another form, it will be treated confidentially. Our privacy policy is simple: what you, the reader, share with us, remains with us. It is not for sale.

5. If readers disclose information about themselves in any publicly accessible areas of the website, they may receive unsolicited messages from other parties. They should therefore behave judiciously when it comes to personal information.

6. The American contains material that is protected by state, national and international copyright, trademark and other intellectual property laws. You may not modify, copy, reproduce, republish, upload, post, transmit or distribute in any way any material, including code and software, from our site. You may download material from the site and may use the service for your personal, non-commercial use only, provided you keep intact all copyright and other proprietary notices.

7. The American believes it is GDPR compliant. For more information, please read: HERE.
