Terms and Conditions
Effective: August 31, 2007
WhereverTV is an online service that allows our members to set up individual program guides that can be linked together through networks of friends. The services offered by WhereverTV, Inc. ("WhereverTV" or "we") include the WhereverTV website (the "WhereverTV Website"), the WhereverTV widget, the WhereverTV Internet messaging service, and any other features, content, or applications offered from time to time by WhereverTV in connection with the WhereverTV Website (collectively, the "WhereverTV Services"). The WhereverTV Services are hosted in the United States of America.
WhereverTV may modify this Agreement from time to time and such modification shall be effective upon posting by WhereverTV on the WhereverTV Website. You agree to be bound to any changes to this Agreement when you use the WhereverTV Services after any such modification is posted. It is therefore important that you review this Agreement regularly to ensure you are updated as to any changes.
Please choose carefully the information you post on WhereverTV and that you provide to other Users. Your WhereverTV profile may not include the following items: telephone numbers, street addresses, and any photographs containing nudity, or obscene, lewd, excessively violent, harassing, sexually explicit or otherwise objectionable subject matter. Despite this prohibition, information provided by other WhereverTV Members (for instance, in their Profile) may contain inaccurate, inappropriate, offensive or sexually explicit material, products or services, and WhereverTV assumes no responsibility or liability for this material. If you become aware of misuse of the WhereverTV Services by any person, please contact WhereverTV.
WhereverTV reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to reject, refuse to post or remove any posting (including private messages, videos, or links to videos) by you, or to restrict, suspend, or terminate your access to all or any part of the WhereverTV Services at any time, for any or no reason, with or without prior notice, and without liability. WhereverTV expressly reserves the right to remove your profile and/or restrict, suspend, or terminate your access to any part of WhereverTV Services if WhereverTV determines, in its sole discretion, that you pose a threat to WhereverTV and/or its Users.

- All registration information you submit is truthful and accurate
- You will maintain the accuracy of such information
- You are 18 years of age or older
- Your use of the WhereverTV Services does not violate any applicable law or regulation
Your profile may be deleted and your Membership may be terminated without warning, if we believe that you are less than 18 years of age.
This Agreement shall remain in full force and effect while you use the WhereverTV Services or are a Member. You may terminate your Membership at any time, for any reason, by following the instructions on the Member's Account Settings page. WhereverTV may terminate your Membership at any time, without warning. Even after Membership is terminated, this Agreement will remain in effect, including sections 5-17.
3.- Fee-Based Service Charges.
Some of the Content on the WhereverTV Website is available on a recurring subscriber fee basis (i.e., all packages are set for automatic recurring renewal); the timeframe of the recurring billing period will be selected upon signup to the service. These services are sometimes referred to herein as the "Fee-Based Services" or "Subscription Services" or “Channel Packages”. Payment of a recurring subscription fee entitles you to watch the applicable channel(s)/package during the applicable billing period, according to the plan selected and paid for.
- General Terms.
- Using a valid credit card that WhereverTV accepts, you agree to pay the subscription plan and/or download charges set forth on the WhereverTV website or mobile apps, applicable taxes, and any other charges that may be incurred on your account in order to access these services. WhereverTV reserves the right to increase fees, surcharges, and site subscription fees, or to institute new fees at any time, upon reasonable notice posted in advance on the WhereverTV Website or mobile apps. WhereverTV will automatically charge your account for renewal of your recurring subscription services. The renewal charge will be according to the base price currently advertised on site unless your subscription terms state otherwise. In the event WhereverTV cannot charge your account, we reserve the right to terminate your access to all Fee-Based Services.
- In addition to the charges set forth above, you are responsible for all charges associated with connecting to WhereverTV Services, including (but) without limitation (to) all telephone and Internet access lines (including long-distance and data charges, when applicable), telephone and computer equipment and any other third-party service fees necessary to access the Fee-Based Services.
- WhereverTV will charge additional taxes, according to the regulations governing the laws of the State of Florida. Any taxes that are required will be added to the subscription price and will be explicitly mentioned prior to the charge.
Free Trial Period. WhereverTV may, from time to time and at its sole discretion, offer a free trial period ("Free Trial"). The length of the Free Trial will be decided by WhereverTV and will be published on the Site so that all knows it. During the Free Trial you will have access to certain channels, which shall be made available at WhereverTV own discretion, free of charge, subject to the following:
- You agree to submit WhereverTV your valid email address, and any other personal information requested for this purpose. The Free Trial will commence on the day and time you have submitted WhereverTV with the aforesaid information ("Commencement Date").
You agree that upon completion of the Free Trial WhereverTV shall automatically activate your account and charge your credit card on file for the first month's service (or for a longer period if you selected 6-month or 12-month at the time you registered for your Free Trial). To cancel a Free Trial, you must email email@example.com and include your order #, name and complete address. For account security reasons, WhereverTV will not accept verbal account cancellation requests.
- WhereverTV grants you one (1) Free Trial in order to test the streaming quality and the content that you will receive when viewing the Service in your home environment.
- Only one Free Trial per household. If you are caught attempting to register for more than one Free Trial or successive Free Trials, you WhereverTV account could be suspended.
- Your use of the Free Trial is also given to assess the streaming quality that will be available when using a ConnectedTV or streaming media player (i.e. GoogleTV, Android or iOS app). The streaming quality received on a PC is the same streaming quality received when viewing on a ConnectedTV or mobile device.
- WhereverTV Subscription Services are available at different prices, as presented on our website, and are updated from time to time. We reserve the right to change those prices at any time. In any event, whatever the price, it will always be clearly marked on the subscription page for the channel/package/downloadable content and clearly marked when you enter your credit card information.
- A valid credit card is required to pay for the subscription services. Fees will be charged only after you submit credit card information to us.
- Once you subscribe to our channel(s)/package, we will bill your credit card account on the same date at the beginning of each new billing cycle (the "Payment Date"). For example, if you subscribe for a monthly subscription that commences on August 18, we will bill your credit card on August 18 and again on September 18 and again on October 18, etc. If the date on which you subscribed does not exist in certain future months/years, for instance, if you subscribe on January 31, we will bill your credit card on the closest available day in months that do not have 31 days. For example, we would bill your credit card February 28, April 30, etc. in months that do not have 31 days.
- Once you subscribe to a particular channel/package, you are not limited to watching it on one device (ConnectedTV or PC), but you are limited to watching it on one device at a time. We do, however, reserve the right to change that policy at any time and from time-to-time.
- Subscriptions are set to automatic recurring charges so that service is not interrupted. YOU WILL CONTINUE TO BE CHARGED FOR THE SUBSCRIPTION WITH EACH RENEWED BILLING CYCLE UNTIL YOU REQUEST TO STOP THE SUBSCRIPTION (or until we decide to stop, whichever comes first).
Cancelling Subscription Services.
- To cancel your subscription, you cancel by going under user profile and follow the instructions to cancel subscription or request to cancel by contacting our Customer Support department VIA EMAIL ONLY at firstname.lastname@example.org. For account security reasons, we do NOT accept cancellations on the phone.
- Plans require 5 days' notice before the cancellation becomes effective.
- Please note that once you cancel your subscription, it will not actually cancel or expire until your next billing cycle. WhereverTV will not provide you with a refund for the current cycle. Once we have charged you for a billing cycle, this cycle cannot be cancelled and you will have access to the subscription for the full duration of this cycle. In cases where your request for cancellation is within 5 days of the end of a monthly billing cycle, you will be charged an additional month and your effective cancellation date will be in the following month.
- Because we offer discounted rates for multiple-month packages, when a multiple-month (i.e. 6-month or 12-month) subscription is cancelled, the subscription will be cancelled at the end of the current billing term, according to the date of subscription. For example, if a 12-month subscription was purchased on the 10th of March & is cancelled on the 25th of June, it will be closed at the end of that subscription period which is the 9th of March the following year. In cases where your request for cancellation is within 14 days of the end of your current multiple-month billing cycle, you will be charged an additional month and your effective cancellation date will be in the following month. Refunds are not issued for multiple-month prepaid plans.
When you sign up to become a Member, you will also be asked to choose a password. You are entirely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password. You agree not to use the account, username, or password of another Member at any time or to disclose your password to any third party. You agree to notify WhereverTV immediately if you suspect any unauthorized use of your account or access to your password. You are solely responsible for any and all use of your account.
5.- Non-commercial Use by Members.
The WhereverTV Services are for the personal use of Members only and may not be used in connection with any commercial endeavors except those that are specifically endorsed or approved by WhereverTV. Illegal and/or unauthorized use of the WhereverTV Services, including collecting usernames and/or email addresses of Members by electronic or other means for the purpose of sending unsolicited email or unauthorized framing of or linking to the WhereverTV Website is prohibited. Commercial advertisements, affiliate links, and other forms of solicitation may be removed from Member profiles without notice and may result in termination of Membership privileges. Appropriate legal action will be taken for any illegal or unauthorized use of the WhereverTV Services.
6.- Proprietary Rights in Content on WhereverTV.
- WhereverTV does not claim any ownership rights in the text, files, videos, sounds, musical works, works of authorship, or any other materials (collectively, "Content") that you post to the WhereverTV Services. After posting your Content to the WhereverTV Services, you continue to retain all ownership rights in such Content, and you continue to have the right to use your Content in any way you choose. By displaying, linking, or publishing ("posting") any Content on or through the WhereverTV Services, you hereby grant to WhereverTV a limited license to use, modify, publicly perform, publicly display, reproduce, and distribute such Content solely on and through the WhereverTV Services. Without this license, WhereverTV would be unable to provide the WhereverTV Services. For example, without the right to modify Member Content, WhereverTV would not be able to digitally compress video files that Members submit or otherwise format Content to satisfy technical requirements, and without the right to publicly perform Member Content, WhereverTV could not allow Users to watch videos posted by Members. The license you grant to WhereverTV is non-exclusive (meaning you are free to license your Content to anyone else in addition to WhereverTV), fully-paid and royalty-free (meaning that WhereverTV is not required to pay you for the use on the WhereverTV Services of the Content that you post), sub-licensable (so that WhereverTV is able to use its affiliates and subcontractors such as Internet content delivery networks to provide the WhereverTV Services), and worldwide (because the Internet and the WhereverTV Services are global in reach). This license will terminate at the time you remove your Content from the WhereverTV Services. The license does not grant WhereverTV the right to sell your Content, nor does the license grant WhereverTV the right to distribute your Content outside of the WhereverTV Services.
You represent and warrant that:
- You own the Content posted by you on or through the WhereverTV Services or otherwise have the right to grant the license set forth in this section
- The posting of your Content on or through the WhereverTV Services does not violate the privacy rights, publicity rights, copyrights, contract rights or any other rights of any person. You agree to pay for all royalties, fees, and any other monies owing any person by reason of any Content posted by you to or through the WhereverTV Services.
- The WhereverTV Services contain Content of WhereverTV ("WhereverTV Content"). WhereverTV Content is protected by copyright, trademark, patent, trade secret and other laws, and WhereverTV owns and retains all rights in the WhereverTV Content and the WhereverTV Services. WhereverTV hereby grants you a limited, revocable, non-sub-licensable license to reproduce and display the WhereverTV Content (excluding any software code) solely for your personal use in connection with viewing the WhereverTV Website and using the WhereverTV Services.
- The WhereverTV Services contain Content of Users and other WhereverTV licensors. Except for Content posted by you, you may not copy, modify, translate, publish, broadcast, transmit, distribute, perform, display, or sell any Content appearing on or through the WhereverTV Services.
7.- Content Posted.
- WhereverTV may delete any Content that in the sole judgment of WhereverTV violates this Agreement or which may be offensive, illegal or violate the rights, harm, or threaten the safety of any person. WhereverTV assumes no responsibility for monitoring the WhereverTV Services for inappropriate Content or conduct. If at any time WhereverTV chooses, in its sole discretion, to monitor the WhereverTV Services, WhereverTV nonetheless assumes no responsibility for the Content, no obligation to modify or remove any inappropriate Content, and no responsibility for the conduct of the User submitting any such Content.
- You are solely responsible for the Content that you post on or through any of the WhereverTV Services, and any material or information that you transmit to other Members and for your interactions with other Users. WhereverTV does not endorse and has no control over the Content. Content is not necessarily reviewed by WhereverTV prior to posting and does not necessarily reflect the opinions or policies of WhereverTV.

In order to protect our Members from such advertising or solicitation, WhereverTV reserves the right to restrict the number of emails which a Member may send to other Members in any 24-hour period to a number which WhereverTV deems appropriate in its sole discretion. If you breach this Agreement and send unsolicited bulk email, instant messages or other unsolicited communications of any kind through the WhereverTV Services, you acknowledge that you will have caused substantial harm to WhereverTV, but that the amount of such harm would be extremely difficult to ascertain.
