ITALY, VATICAN CITY AND SAN MARINO
The contracts are between the Users and Eleven Sports Italia S.r.l., via Pietro Giannone 9, 20154 Milan, Italy, VAT number 10979751004 (“ELEVEN ITALY").
- ELEVEN ITALY offers a number of Subscription plans and PPV events. Subscription plans and PPV events may have differing pricings, accessible Content, conditions and limitations, which will be disclosed to the User in the Platform. Users can sign up to multiple Subscriptions at the same time.
- The Subscription fee will be charged to the Payment Method provided by the User on the specific billing date. The length of the billing cycle will depend on the type of Subscription that the User chooses when signing up for the Subscription plan. In some cases, the payment date may change, for example, if the User's Payment Method has not successfully settled. The Platform will describe in detail the Subscription fees. In general, the Subscription fees, depending on the type of Subscription plans, will be charged: a) monthly (monthly subscriptions); b) up front for a certain period (season subscriptions); c) as one-off payments (PPV events).
- To acquire a Subscription plan or an event offered on a PPV basis, the User must provide one or more Payment Methods. The User authorises ELEVEN ITALY to charge any Payment Method associated with their account in case the User’s primary Payment Method is declined or no longer available to ELEVEN ITALY for payment of the Subscription fee. The User remains responsible for any uncollected amounts. If a payment is not successfully settled, due to expiration, insufficient funds, or otherwise, and the User does not cancel the Subscription or their account, ELEVEN ITALY may suspend the User’s access to the Content under the Subscription they acquired until ELEVEN ITALY has successfully charged a valid Payment Method. For some Payment Methods, the issuer may charge the User certain fees, such as foreign transaction fees or other fees relating to the processing of the Payment Method. The User must check with their Payment Method service provider for details.
- A User can cancel a Subscription as provided in the terms governing their Subscription plan as described in the Platform or in the relevant section of their Account Settings. Users will continue to have access to the Content under the Subscription through the end of the billing period. Payments are non-refundable and ELEVEN ITALY does not provide refunds or credits for any partial Subscription periods or unwatched Content. Season subscriptions cannot be cancelled.
- To cancel a Subscription, a User may access their Account Settings and click on the "Cancel Subscription" button.
- Users must be at least 18 years of age to purchase Subscription plans or PPV events.
- Subscription plans and PPV events are for domestic use only (i.e. any commercial use, including any public performance, is excluded).
- Users may access Contents in the Territories.
- The number of devices, and concurrent streams, on which Users may watch Contents is specified in the Subscription plan or PPV event described in the Platform.
- No right of withdrawal. The Italian Consumer Code (Legislative Decree no. 206/05 and subsequent amendments) generally provides for a right of withdrawal from contracts concluded on websites by consumers (within 14 days of the conclusion of the contract), but excludes the right of withdrawal in the case of supply of digital content by means of a non-material support, when the commencement of the supply has begun with the express agreement of the consumer and his acceptance that in this case he would have lost the right of withdrawal.
- In view of the nature of the Subscription Plans and the PPV events, at the time of concluding the contract, the User agrees to the immediate commencement of the service and therefore accepts that the right to withdraw from the contract will cease once the downloading or streaming of the digital content has commenced.
- Force Majeure. ELEVEN ITALY shall not have any liability to Users for any delay or failure to deliver the Contents to the extent that such delay or failure arises from causes beyond the reasonable control of ELEVEN ITALY, including, but not limited to, failure of equipment or infrastructure, fire, floods, acts of God, acts of any authority, industrial disputes and the cancellation or postponement of any event.
- Users can contact ELEVEN ITALY as follows: firstname.lastname@example.org. Eleven Sports Italia S.r.l., via Pietro Giannone 9, 20154 Milan, Italy, VAT number 10979751004
