These are the legal terms that apply when you use the online services that we operate in the UK and Ireland. Please read these terms carefully before using our online services as you will be bound by these terms. If you do not agree to any of these terms we do not grant you permission to use our online services. If you have any questions you can contact us as set out below.
1. Our Details
“We“, “us” and “our” means MTV Networks Europe which is a Delaware partnership between MTV Networks Europe Inc and Viacom Networks Europe Inc. Our principal place of business is at 17-29 Hawley Crescent, London NW1 8TT. Our VAT number is GB466509032. “You”, “your”, “yourself” means you, the end user in your capacity as a business user and not as a consumer. If you have any questions or concerns you may contact us by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
2. Changes to these terms
We may need to make changes to these terms in future. For example to reflect changes in the law, changes in the type of services or information we provide to you through this website or to correct errors in these terms. We will try to keep all such changes to a minimum. We recommend that you check these terms from time to time to see if they have changed. We will always state at the bottom of these terms the date on which they were last updated.
If you continue to use our online services after our terms change you will be bound by those changes.
When you register you must provide us with true, current and complete information about yourself as set out in the registration form. If you provide any important information that is untrue, not current or incomplete (or we have reasonable grounds to suspect that this is the case) we have the right to either suspend or terminate your access to those parts of our online services that require registration.

We endeavour to provide a satisfactory level of performance for all of our online services. However it is not technically possible or practical for us to provide our online services free of all faults at all times. The information and material provided on our online services may include some inaccuracies or typographical errors, which we will endeavour to correct as they come to our notice.

We will not be liable to you (whether as a result of contract law, tort, statutory duty or otherwise) for any loss or damage arising from or in any way connected with your use of, or inability to use, our online services in respect of any losses:

If you have a claim against another user of our online services you will pursue that claim independently and without recourse to us.
We do not in any way seek to limit or exclude our liability to you for death or personal injury or any loss arising as a result of fraud.
You will be required to compensate us in full for all of our losses caused by your misuse of our online services, including losses we suffer by virtue of someone else bringing a claim against us in respect of such misuse. A misuse of our online services arises if you do not comply with the rules set out in these terms.
10. Third Party Websites
Our online services may contain links to other websites which are not controlled by us. Any such links are provided solely for your convenience and this does not amount to an endorsement by us of that website or its content. If you use those links you will leave our online services and if you decide to visit any linked site, you do so at your own risk. These legal terms only apply to your use of our online services and we cannot be responsible for any content, or products and services available on any other websites as we do not control them.
11. Safety and Parental Responsibility
We are concerned about the safety and well being of all our users, but children in particular. Parents or legal guardians who allow their children to use our online services should take care to supervise and assist their children. We remind you that our online services are designed to appeal to a wide audience. We remind parents and legal guardians that it is their responsibility to supervise children and to determine whether particular areas of our websites are unsuitable for your child. If you have any concerns about our online services, please do not hesitate to contact us at the address set out above.
12. Suspension and Termination
We have the right to suspend or terminate your access to our online services or any aspect of them if you do not comply with these terms or if we have reasonable grounds to believe that you are likely to breach them. We will use reasonable efforts to give you reasonable prior notice of our intention to suspend or terminate your access unless your non-compliance is or could be against the law, is adversely affecting other users of our online services or could damage our reputation.
We will comply with all applicable UK data protection legislation from time to time in place in respect of any personal information you submit to us.
You can amend information you give us via our online services as follows. If you want to (a) amend any information you have given us when registering for our online services, (b) unsubscribe from a newsletter or other email distribution or (c) remove all of your information from our databases, you can do so by clicking on the relevant link on the newsletter/other email we have sent you (which can normally be found at the bottom of the communication) or deselect the relevant tick boxes within the “Preferences” pages of our online services.
14. Complaints and Take Down
If you want to make a complaint about any of our online services or if you think your or someone else’s intellectual property or other rights have been infringed by our online services you can do so by submitting full details in an email to email@example.com
Each provision of these terms excluding or limiting liability is to be construed separately and will apply and survive even if for any reason one or other of those provisions is held to be inapplicable or unenforceable in any circumstances. Each of the provisions of these terms excluding or limiting liability will remain in force notwithstanding any termination of these terms or termination or suspension of your access to our online services.
16. No Waiver
No waiver of any rights by either you or us will be taken as a waiver of any other rights you or we may have. For example if we waive our rights to complain about a particular breach of these terms by you it does not prevent us from complaining about other breaches.
17. Governing Law and Jurisdiction
These terms are governed by the laws of England and both you and we agree to submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts.
