You must be at least 18 years of age (or if higher, the age of majority in your country) (“Services Minimum Age”) to use the Services, provided that you may use the Services if you are under the Services Minimum Age if and only if you have the permission of your parent or legal guardian to use the Services, your use of the Services is subject to your parent or legal guardian’s supervision and control, and your parent or legal guardian reads this Agreement with you. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in order to sign up for a user account, you must be at least 18 years of age (or if higher, the age of majority in your country).  Additionally, there may be certain other areas on the Services for which you must be at least a certain age to access.  If you are not yet the required age for such areas, and/or do not meet any other eligibility requirements of the Services, or, if for any reason, you do not agree with all of the terms and conditions contained in this Agreement, please discontinue using the areas and/or Services (as applicable) immediately because by using or attempting to use the areas and/or Services, you certify that you are at least the required age for the areas and meet all other eligibility requirements of the Services and agree to all of the terms and conditions of this Agreement. If you are a parent or legal guardian of a child under the Services Minimum Age, by allowing your child to use the Services, you are subject to the terms of this Agreement and you are responsible for your child’s activity on the Services.

  • business losses; or

  • losses to non-consumers; nor

  • losses or damages (including damage to a Device or other digital content belonging to you and caused by the Services where we have failed to exercise reasonable care and skill) to you that exceed in total £ 500.

 

Subject to the paragraphs above in this “Disclaimer and Limitations of Liability” section 15, the Services, and all materials, goods and Services and postings are made available on an “as is” and “as available” basis, without any promise or any guarantee or assurance the Services will be available for use, or that all features, functions or operations will be available or perform as described.

 

16. ADS AND MALWARE

We take care and pride in creating the Services. We are on the lookout for technical glitches that affect how the Services work. When we find them on our end, we endeavour to fix them. We do not promise that the Services will be compatible with all Devices so, unfortunately, it is possible that your Device may cause some glitches that affect how you see the Services.  If, however, the Services damage your Device, or digital content, belonging to you and this is caused by our failure to use reasonable care and skill, we will accept responsibility up to the financial limit set out at Section 15 above (‘Disclaimer and Limitations of Liability’).

If you experience any unusual behavior, content or ads on the Services, it may be the result of Malware on your computer. Malware — short for MALicious softWARE — is a term used to broadly classify a form of software that is installed in a computer system with malicious intentions, usually without the owner’s knowledge or permission. Malware includes computer viruses, key loggers, malicious active content, rogue programs and dialers, among others. While we continuously work closely with our partners to ensure that everything on the Services is working properly, sometimes Malware programs on your Device may interfere with your experience on the Services and on other sites that you visit.

We suggest that you take actions (such as installing, and keeping updated, reputable third party antivirus software) that may help to clean your Device and that could monitor or prevent future installations of Malware.

Please note that we cannot be responsible for the effects of any third party software including Malware on your Device. Please make sure to carefully read the Help or Customer Support areas of any software download site. If you do discover any Malware on your Device, we also suggest you speak with a qualified technician for your Device. If, after taking the above actions, you are still experiencing any problems or consider the Services to be faulty, please feel free to contact us at information@viacom.com.

 

17. PRIVACY

We respect your privacy and the use and protection of your Information. Please see our Privacy Policy for important information and disclosures relating to the collection and use of your Information in connection with your use of the Services.

 

18. ALTERNATIVE DISPUTE RESOLUTION

19. GOVERNING LAW.

the laws of England and Wales. If you are a consumer habitually resident in the European Union ("EU") or
elsewhere in the United Kingdom, you also enjoy protection of the mandatory provisions of the law of your
