Article 4. About the Sat.tv Personal Account

  1. Creation and registration

Eutelsat provides the User with a Personal Account which allows them to have free access, via unique Login Credentials, to all the Services.

A Personal Account can only be created for the use of adults.

To create a Personal Account, the User must accept the Terms and Conditions of Use.

To create a Personal Account, the User must complete a form with the following Personal Data: email address; year of birth; country of residence and language(s) spoken.

A Personal Account will be deemed to be created upon receipt by Eutelsat of all the information requested in the registration form and once the User has clicked on the Personal Account activation link sent to them at their email address.

When registering online, the User undertakes to provide accurate information that does not adversely affect the rights of third parties. They undertake not to use a false or misappropriated identity which may mislead Eutelsat. They are required to provide a valid email address. It is the User’s responsibility to update their Personal Data.

Only one Personal Account can be created for each email address.

  1. Management of the Personal Account by the User

The Personal Account is strictly personal. Email addresses and passwords are personal and confidential. The User is solely responsible for the use of their email address and password. All access to the Personal Account and any operations on it, carried out using the User’s password, shall be deemed to have been carried out by the User.

The password selected is unique, personal and confidential. It is the User’s responsibility to take all necessary measures to protect their data. Eutelsat, for its part, undertakes to use all the means at its disposal to guarantee the security and confidentiality of data thus transmitted.

If the password is forgotten, the User can request for it to be reset on the Site or Application. They will then receive an email, from which they can create a new password.

The User can change their contact information, credentials etc. at any time via their Personal Account.

After the User has been identified and if they do not log out of their Personal Account session, it is understood that the Personal Account will remain active (logged in) for a reasonable period of time. The User will then be automatically recognized each time they visit the Site or Application for this reasonable period of time. The User can stop this automatic recognition at any time by logging out of their Personal Account.

  1. Duration, termination and unsubscription

The Personal Account is valid indefinitely.

Eutelsat nevertheless reserves the right to automatically delete, without notice or compensation, any Personal Account which is inactive (no log in to the Personal Account) for more than twelve (12) months.

Similarly, Eutelsat reserves the right to automatically delete, without notice or compensation, any Personal Account in the event of serious and/or repeated violation(s) by the User of these Terms and Conditions of Use.

The User expressly acknowledges that Eutelsat may, without notice or compensation, terminate all or part of the Services provided on the Site and/or Application without justification.

The User can, at any time, unsubscribe and delete their Personal Account, via the “Delete my account” button available in their Personal Account.

Any reproduction and/or representation, total or partial, on any medium, of the distinguishing features or content on the Site or Application, including information and/or data, without the prior written authorization of Eutelsat, its partners or third parties, is prohibited and constitutes counterfeiting and may thus incur civil and criminal liability for its author.

Article 8. Warranties and Liabilities

Editorial content is provided without warranties of any kind, the obligation to provide Eutelsat’s Services being limited to a duty of care.

In no event shall Eutelsat be responsible for the content of the channels or their broadcast programmes. In this context, Eutelsat is only an intermediary between the Visitor and/or the User and said channels and, accordingly, cannot be held responsible for the content of or problems which could arise with the services for which it cannot be held liable.

The Services are provided on an “as is” basis and, to the extent permitted by law, with no express, implied or statutory warranties regarding the security, reliability and performance of its Services, including but not limited to warranties of non-infringement of property rights. In this respect, Eutelsat does not guarantee that its Services will be accessible at any time or error-free and/or free from defects.

Eutelsat reserves the right to perform maintenance and upgrade work during which the Services may not be available. Eutelsat strives to constantly improve Services and products and upgrades may therefore involve changes to the design or functionality of the Site, Application and Services.

Eutelsat is committed to making every effort to ensure that accessing, viewing and using the Site, Application and Services is secure, in accordance with the Internet Code of Practice. Consequently, Eutelsat cannot be held liable in the following cases:

Furthermore, the User or Visitor remains solely responsible for any damages, direct or indirect, material or immaterial, if they are caused by, founded on or originate from using the Site or Application, whether it is used fraudulently or not.
