General Terms and Conditions
This Agreement is a legal document which sets out your rights and obligations, and those of Beonscreen.com , a company registered in England under registration no. 4568357 ("Beonscreen.com", "We" or "Us"), in relation to this site and the services offered by Beonscreen.com through it (the "Beonscreen.com Service"). By registering for the Beonscreen.com Service, you agree to the terms of this Agreement, and you re-affirm that agreement every time you use it. Visitors to the Beonscreen.com Service who do not register to become a Member (see 2 below) similarly affirm that they are bound by this Agreement each time they access the Beonscreen.com Service. You should be aware that this Agreement may change from time to time in accordance with Clause 23 below.
2. Types of membership.
People who register for the Beonscreen.com Service become "Members". They must be at least 16 years of age. The Membership divides between those who decide to pay our annual fee for a Gold/Platinum membership (which we call "Gold/Platinum Members"), and those who join with our standard membership ("Standard Members").
As well as being able to browse the Beonscreen.com Service like any visitor to it, Gold/Platinum and Standard Members may:
- post their name and some other details on the registration form for the Beonscreen.com Service
- receive emailed messages, which will be sent to the email address contained in Your Details (which are provided during Registration and may be updated subsequently), sent by Standard Members; and
- opt to receive emails selected during the Registration process (as added to, or de-selected, subsequently), such as notification when a television show or audience request has come through to Beonscreen.com.
In addition to the facilities available to Standard Members, Gold/Platinum Members may:
- Receive E-Mail alerts in advance of Standard Members;
- Appear at top of any database search conducted by the production companies;
- Upload photographs; and
- Receive various other special discounts on clients in association with Beonscreen.com that Beonscreen.com chooses to work with.
We are not an internet service provider, however. In order to avail of the Beonscreen.com Service, you must have internet access and all the software (and skills) required for email and web usage.
3. Important Note: Gold/Platinum Membership.
If you decide to become a Gold/Platinum Member, and therefore pay our Gold/Platinum Membership fee, you are agreeing to take the Gold/Platinum Membership we make available to you shortly after that fee is paid. This means that you do not have the right to cancel your Gold/Platinum Membership during the cooling-off period which is provided for certain purchases under the Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000. You will not be entitled to any refund of that fee once you have registered with Beonscreen.com and/or made any applications to listings as you accept when registering that your cooling-off period has ended. If we do decide to issue a refund, it will be subject to an admin charge of 10% of Your Membership fee. Please note that we reserve the right to change the amount of the fee for Gold/Platinum Membership, the period which it covers, the services which it enables you to obtain and other factors from time to time. However, these changes, unless they are changes under Clause 8 or Clause 9 below, will not affect your then-current Gold/Platinum Membership.
You undertake to register for the Beonscreen.com Service using accurate and current information about yourself - including your correct name, address and any other requested details. You also undertake only to add yourself to listings that interest you and that given the opportunity you would apply for. If you are asked for, and provide, details of a credit, debit or charge card; in that event, you must ensure that (a) you are fully entitled to use that card, and (b) it has available funds sufficient to cover the charges which are deducted from it. As part of the registration process for the Beonscreen.com Service, you will receive a verification email, the purpose of which is to take reasonable steps to ensure that the email address you have nominated during registration is controlled by you. That email contains simple instructions which you must follow.
forms part of this Agreement, and by agreeing to this Agreement, you also give your consent to the way we may handle your personal data in that policy. Given the global nature of the World Wide Web, any posting on the Beonscreen.com Service (including any which contain personal information) is, of course, accessible to television production companies around the world.
6. Beonscreen.com's Role.
