Acceptable Use of the Site
American Airlines provides the Site solely to permit you to determine the availability of products and services offered on the Site and to make legitimate reservations or otherwise transact business with American Airlines, and for no other purposes. The Site is for your personal use. You agree that you will use the Site's services only to make legitimate reservations or purchases for you or for another person for whom you are authorized to act both legally and under the terms of this Agreement.
You agree that without limitation you shall not make any false reservation or any reservation in anticipation of demand or any reservation in a fictitious name. If American Airlines determines that you have confirmed multiple reservations to one or more destinations on or about the same date, American Airlines may without notice cancel all confirmed space associated with the multiple reservations.
Separate Conditions of Carriage apply to air transportation and related services. In addition, you agree to abide by all terms and conditions that American Airlines imposes on the purchase of specific products and services, including, but not limited to, payment of all amounts when due and compliance with all rules regarding availability of fares, products, or services.

Your Communication with Us
American Airlines will not treat as confidential any communications you send to us by electronic mail or otherwise. American Airlines has no obligation to refrain from publishing, reproducing, or otherwise using your communications in any way and for any purpose.
American Airlines does not accept or consider unsolicited proposals related to its business, including but not limited to proposals for advertising campaigns, logos, names, processes, products, promotions, services, slogans, and technologies. American Airlines therefore requests that you not send such proposals. Please also refrain from sending original creative artwork, blueprints, demonstratives, designs, layouts, photographs, or samples. American Airlines has adopted this policy to prevent claims that we have copied such unsolicited ideas without authorization, when, in fact, we developed the idea independent of or even long before receiving the unsolicited proposal. If you do send us unsolicited proposals, then do so with the understanding that American Airlines may use any concepts, ideas, inventions, know-how, or techniques that you disclose in those communications for any purpose, including the developing, manufacturing, and/or marketing of products, services or programs. American Airlines may do so free of any obligation to compensate you for that use.
