2. Our Products
2.1 The images (including video thumbnails) and descriptions of the Subscription products on our site are for illustrative purposes only.

3. Use of our site
4. How we use your personal information

This clause 5 only applies if you are a consumer.
5.1 If you are a consumer and are under 18, you must ask your parents or guardian before you:-
(a) buy anything from our site;
(b) email us or ask us to email anything to you; or
(c) send any information to us.
By continuing to use our site and any of the services offered, you are confirming that you are either 18 years or older or, if you are under 18:-
(a) you have obtained the consent of your parent or guardian to do so;
(b) your parent or guardian has reviewed and agreed to these Terms; and
(c) where you are using a credit/debit card or Paypal account of a parent or guardian, you are doing so with that parent or guardian's consent.
6. If you are a business customer
This clause 6 only applies if you are a business.
6.1 If you are not a consumer, you confirm that you have authority to bind any business on whose behalf you use our site to purchase Subscriptions.
7. How the contract is formed between you and us
7.1 You must buy a Subscription on-line.
7.2 After you place an order, you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your order and that we have activated your chosen subscription to AVTV. Please note that if you choose a recurring Subscription product (i.e., one that involves repeat billing over a potentially endless period of time), your continued access to the Subscription is reliant upon your chosen payment method being successfully billed at those regular intervals. Should a payment fail, your access to the Subscription product will be revoked and you will be required to update your subscription payment method in order to re-gain access.
7.3 By ticking the 'Start Subscription Now' checkbox on sign up, you provide your explicit consent to the immediate commencement of your Subscription, which allows you to directly access the AVTV services. We will confirm our acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail that confirms that your Subscription has been activated. The Contract between us will only be formed when we send you the confirmation email. You will still have your right to cancel under clause 9 but we reserve the right to charge you for any Subscription that you receive prior to cancellation in the event that you exercise your right of cancellation under clause 9.
7.4 If we are unable to supply you with a Subscription, for example because that Subscription is no longer available or because of an error in the price on our site as referred to in clause 12.4, we will inform you of this by e-mail and we will refund you the full amount, and cancel any recurring billing, as soon as possible, if your order has already been processed.
8. Our right to vary these terms
8.1 We may revise these Terms from time to time in the following circumstances:
(a) changes in how we accept payment from you;
(b) changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements; and
(c) changes to the terms and conditions between us and third parties upon whom we rely in relation to the production or delivery of Subscriptions or the operation of this site.
8.2 Whenever we revise these Terms in accordance with this clause 8, we will give you notice of this by stating that these Terms have been amended and the relevant date at the top of this page.
9. Your consumer right of cancellation and refund
This clause 9 only applies if you are a consumer.
9.1 If you are a consumer, you have a legal right to cancel a Contract under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 during the period set out below in clause 9.3. This means that during the relevant period if you change your mind or for any other reason you decide you do not want the Subscription, you can notify us of your decision to cancel the Contract and receive a refund. Advice about your legal right to cancel the Contract under these regulations is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.
9.2 You may cancel a Contract from the date you receive the confirmation email, which is when the Contract between us is formed. You have a period of 14 (fourteen) days in which you may cancel, starting from the day you received the confirmation email.
9.3 To cancel a Contract complete the contact us form on this site or you can use the form of words in the schedule at the end of these Terms and post it to us by first class post. When you contact us, you must let us have your name, address, telephone number, email address and order number so that we can identify you and the Subscription product you wish to cancel. You may wish to keep a copy of your cancellation notification for your own records. If you send us your cancellation notice by web-form, then your cancellation is effective from the date you submitted the web-from. If you post it then it will be from the date of your letter.
9.4 You will receive a full refund of the price you paid for the Subscription although we reserve the right to charge you for the period of activation of the Subscription for the period prior to cancellation within the 14 day cancellation period. We will process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 30 calendar days of your contact (as per 9.3).
9.5 We refund you on the credit card, debit card, Direct Debit account or Paypal account used by you to pay.
9.6 Details of your legal right to cancel and an explanation of how to exercise it are provided in these Terms and Conditions.
10. Activation of Subscription/Length of Subscription/Termination
10.1 Upon completion of the subscription/purchase process, your Subscription will be activated immediately after the email confirmation, unless there is an Event Outside Our Control. If we are unable to process (and thus, activate) your subscription because of an Event Outside Our Control, you will need to contact us to bring the issue to our attention. Once we have established what the problem is, we will contact you with a revised estimated date of activation.
10.2 Once the Subscription is activated you are granted a licence to access the content on AVTV which will continue subject to these Terms until your Subscription ends in accordance with the Subscription you have purchased and as confirmed to you in your activation email.
10.3 If you received your Subscription as part of your season ticket benefit then your Subscription will end on the 31st July following the close of that specific season.
10.4 Subject to Clause 9 and anything to the contrary in these Terms you have no right of cancellation and refund once your Subscription has started.
11. International delivery
11.1 AVTV is available to all countries without restriction. However, it is possible for AVTV to be blocked by your ISP should your country of residence impose specific browsing restrictions.
11.2 You must comply with all applicable laws and regulations of the country for which the Subscription products are used. We will not be liable or responsible if you break any such law.
12. Subscription Price
12.1 The prices of the Subscription products will be as quoted on our site from time to time. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the prices of Subscription products are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered onto the system. However if we discover an error in the price of Subscription product(s) you have ordered, please see clause 12.4 for what happens in this event.
12.2 Prices for our Subscription products may change from time to time, and we will inform you by email prior to the price change to confirm the new amount.
12.3 The price of a Subscription product includes VAT (where applicable) at your applicable current local rate chargeable for the time being. However, if the rate of VAT changes between the date of your order and the date of delivery, we will adjust the VAT you pay, unless you have already paid for the Products in full before the change in VAT takes effect.
12.4 Our site has the potential to display a large number of Subscription options, as well as various configurations and special offers within those Subscriptions. It is always possible that, despite our reasonable efforts, some of the Subscriptions on our site may be incorrectly priced. If we discover an error in the price of the Subscriptions you have ordered we will contact you to inform you of this error and we will give you the option of continuing to purchase the Subscription at the correct price or cancelling your order. If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the order process, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you. Please note that if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mispricing, we do not have to provide the Subscription to you at the incorrect (lower) price.

14.5 Except as expressly stated in these Terms, we do not give any representation, warranties or undertakings in relation to the Subscription products.

15.1 If we fail to comply with these Terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breach of these Terms or our negligence, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable.
