a.    content streaming services (each a Streaming Service); and

b.   account management, and billing services provided through a customer account (a Sideline Sport Account).

These Terms apply to each Streaming Service you subscribe to, and/or your use of a Sideline Sport Account. Your use of, and access to, such services indicate your acceptance of these Terms (and any changes to them).

3. The Terms are divided into the following
separate sections, some of which only apply where relevant:

a.    General terms

likely to benefit you or have a neutral impact on you.

5. These Terms, the subscription fee of a Streaming Service which we bill as principal are subject to change by Sideline Sport.  Where any of these changes have a detrimental impact to you, we will give you at least one month’s notice prior to the change, so you may cancel your relevant service(s) before the change takes effect.  If any change is: (a) due to circumstances outside of our reasonable control such as changes in law (including changes to taxes); or (b) due to changes to agreements with our suppliers (including new charges or increases to charges imposed on us); or (c) for urgent operational, technical, security or protection of network integrity reasons; then we will give you as much prior notice as is reasonably practicable in the circumstances, which may be less than one month.

6. You acknowledge that the Streaming Services, including content that you may have access to via a Streaming Service, are updated regularly and may change from time to time.

9. You are solely responsible and liable for activity that occurs on your own Sideline Sport account.

10. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and Sideline Sport Account details.  If you permit another member of your household to use your Sideline Sport Account details and password they must agree to keep it confidential. If you know or suspect that your password has been compromised, or you suspect or become aware of any other breach of security, you must tell us immediately. In these circumstances, you must also ensure that your password is changed as soon as possible.
