IceTV License Agreement
This Agreement is made between you (either an individual or a single legal entity) and TV TV Australia Pty Ltd trading as “IceTV” ABN 84 608 820 891.
This Agreement sets out the services, content, and any documentation that IceTV will provide to you (“IceTV Service”) along with the terms and conditions which govern your use of the IceTV Service and any products or software (“IceTV Software”) provided by IceTV to you.
You must accept these terms and conditions by selecting the checkbox provided and this Agreement (and the Subscription Term chosen by you) commences when you do so. This Agreement (and the Subscription Term) ends when all the IceTV Services expire (or terminate), unless terminated earlier in accordance with this Agreement.
IceTV’s electronic program guide (EPG) is an original work created by IceTV’s staff. Some programs are available elsewhere that gather EPG data from various sources such as websites. IceTV does not recommend use of such programs as their use is likely to infringe other parties’ copyright. Such programs may also be unreliable, especially if the owners of the data take technical or legal steps to prevent their work being copied. IceTV’s EPG is its own, original work and IceTV owns the copyright. You may not copy or distribute it in any way except for the personal use for which you obtain license when subscribing to the service.
