Terms of Service

If you have any questions or concerns about these Terms of Use please don't hesitate to contact me at Cami Ciotta at cami@goindie.tv Thank you!


USER OBLIGATION

If you are seeking to upload material to this site or to engage in any activities within the site other than passively viewing site content, you must register and become a site member. As part of the registration process, you will be asked to accept these Terms of Use. On doing so, you will be deemed to have consented to and you will be bound by these Terms of Use.
Visitors to the site merely wishing to view content do not need to register and become members. However, any use of this site (which includes but is not limited to simply viewing the site's content) constitutes your acknowledgement and acceptance of these Terms of Use, which takes effect the moment you first use the site.
Go Indie TV reserves the right at any time to change the terms, conditions and notices under which its services are offered, including but not limited to these Terms of Use, by posting such changes online. It is your responsibility to refer to and comply with these updated terms and conditions upon accessing the site. Your continued use of this site after changes are posted constitutes your acceptance of these terms and conditions as modified.
If these Terms of Use are not accepted in full, you do not have permission to access the contents of this site or to upload content to this site and you should cease using this site immediately.
If there is any conflict between these Terms of Use and rules and/or specific terms of use appearing on this site relating to specific material, then the latter shall prevail.


ABILITY TO ACCEPT TERMS OF SERVICE

You affirm that you are either more than 17 years of age or possess legal parental or guardian consent, and are competent to enter into the terms, conditions, obligations, affirmations, representations and warranties set forth in these Terms of Use, and to abide by and comply with these Terms of Use.
You must be 17 years or over or possess legal parental or guardian consent to register as a member of this website. If we discover or have any reason to suspect that you have not reached 17 years of age or that you do not have legal parental or guardian consent, then we reserve the right to suspend or terminate your membership to this site immediately and without notice.
Children and young people under 17 are entitled to access this site to view its content but are not presently able to register as members and actively participate — i.e., upload content. Certain parts of the site (e.g., those containing programming with adult language and/or content) may be unsuitable for younger viewers. Go Indie TV offers user-managed content ratings, but we do not independently vet or verify these ratings and therefore we cannot and do not guarantee the accuracy of these content ratings.


PASSWORD, SCREEN NAME AND SECURITY

When you register as a member of Go Indie TV, you will be asked to select a Screen Name and Password.  Your Screen Name and Password allow you to access your account and, as we continue to enhance the site, log on to areas of the site that are reserved for members only.
You accept that it is your sole responsibility to maintain the confidentiality of your Password and Screen Name and that you are responsible for all activity that occurs under them. Go Indie TV is unable to check the identity of people using the site and will not in any way be liable where your Password or Screen Name are used by someone else. You agree to notify Go Indie TV immediately of any unauthorized use of your Password or Screen Name and any other breach of security as soon as you become aware of it.
Any private information and/or data relating to your membership to Go Indie TV or your uploaded content that you are asked to supply or that you supply voluntarily as part of the registration process and as part of the upload/download process, will only be used by Go Indie TV, our subcontractors, employees, agents and advisors, including legal advisors, as part of the process of administering your membership and when making decisions whether any material you seek to upload onto the site should be accepted or rejected. In addition, we may, at our sole discretion, disclose this information to the police, regulatory bodies or any legal advisers in connection with any suspected or alleged criminal activity or offense or suspected breach of these Terms of Use, including but not limited to any claim of infringement by you, or otherwise where required by law. Otherwise, this information will be kept private and confidential and will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent.
