"Do you know about France's privacy laws and are they good ?"

They are among the best. You can read up about the CNIL here and here.

"why they specifically mention US in it. Does it sound good/bad for you ?"

I'm sure there's a good reason but perhaps someone else can answer that question.

"is it "real" non-profit organisation

Yes, and member driven on top of it. Check out the statutes.

"or do I have to be really careful
what pictures I'll post there like here?"

Only upload pictures to the internet that you don't mind being public as anyone can grab and use them (illegally). Don't worry about BeWelcome doing anything with your content against your will. Set your profile to be visible only to membes of BeWelcome. Go through your profile settings and preferences and adjust accordingly.

Enjoy!
