Removing insurance company stickers from windows

I have a challenge, and hopefully someone has a good way to solve it :)
I would like to remove the insurance company stickers form the inside of the windows they are stuck to. The windows are, however, tinted. I am concerned that any solvent etc., while not affecting the glass, would damage the tinting film.
Has anyone here ever removed these stickers from such a surface?

i take it that the tinting is done over the insurance stickers, of that is the case, have the tinting redone, they can remove the stickers while they are busy. if the insurance sticker are on the back window, leave it. your rear demisters on the back window gets damaged when you remove the tinting and might not work properly.

Thanks for the reply.

I would prefer not redoing the tinting. I'm stingy that way :) But I suspect I won't be able to remove the stickers without damaging the tint. Was more hoping for, than expecting, an alternative solution :)

The 2 stickers are stuck on top of the tint, on the driver and rear seat windows :( Why the previous owners did it this way I do not know :(
