MDC Media Group Viewer Terms of Service Agreement

Last updated: May 21, 2024

This MDC Media Group Inc. Viewer Terms of Service Agreement (“Agreement”) is between you and MDC Media Group Inc. (for the purposes hereof, “MDC Media Group Inc.,” “we” or “us”). The Agreement governs your use of the “MDC Media Group Services,” on all the websites that we offer including Milenio Stadium, Revista Amar, Luso Life, Camoes Radio, Camoes TV and Camoes TV plus, online platforms that allow consumers like you to read and watch video programs and audio programs (“Programs”) from content owners and licensors (“Producers”) through Producer-branded websites and applications that we power. These Terms of Use constitute a binding agreement between you and MDC Media Group Inc., and your use of any MDC Media Group Services constitutes your full acceptance of these Terms of Use.

Notice: Section 10 of this Agreement contains a mandatory ARBITRATION AGREEMENT. By using any of the MDC Media Group Services, you agree that any claims you may have against MDC Media Group Inc. relating to the MDC Media Group Services must be ARBITRATED, and you waive the right to (1) assert claims against MDC Media Group Inc. in court; (2) participate in a class action; and (3) have a jury hear your case.

  1. Acceptance

By creating an account, viewing videos, accessing the sites making a purchase, downloading Producer-branded applications that we power, or otherwise visiting or using any of the MDC Media Group Services, you accept these Terms of Use and consent to contract with us electronically.

If you are an entity other than a natural person, the person who registers the account or otherwise uses the MDC Media Group Services must have the authority to bind the entity. In this context, “you” means both the entity and each person who is authorized to access the account.

We may update this Agreement by posting a revised version on our websites. By continuing to use any of the MDC Media Group Services, you accept any revised Agreement.

You may terminate the Agreement at any time by deleting your account. We reserve the right to suspend or terminate your account for your breach of the terms hereof. If MDC Media Group Inc. deletes your account for breach, you may not re-register. In the event of any termination or expiration of the Agreement, the following sections will survive: Section 7 (Disclaimers), Section 8 (Limitation of Liability), Section 9 (Indemnification), Section 10 (Arbitration Agreement; Jury Waiver; Class Action Waiver), and Section 11 (General Provisions).

  1. Accounts

Registration: You must create an account to use certain features we offer (e.g., to view a Program). To do so, you must provide an email address. By creating an account, you agree to receive notices from MDC Media Group Inc. and the Producers of the Programs you purchase at this email address.

Age Requirements: You may not create an account if you are younger than 16 years of age. By creating an account, you represent that you are at least 16 years of age, and, to the extent required by law, you have the permission of a parent or guardian to create an account and use the MDC Media Group Services.

Parents and Guardians: By granting your child permission to use the MDC Media Group Services through your account, you agree and understand that you are responsible for monitoring and supervising your child’s usage. If you believe your child is using your account and does not have your permission, please contact us immediately so that we can disable access.

Account Security: You are responsible for all activity that occurs under your account, including unauthorized activity. You must safeguard the confidentiality of your account credentials. If you are using a computer that others have access to, you must log out of your account after each session. If you become aware of unauthorized access to your account, you must change your password and notify us immediately.

  1. Privacy

Please review our Privacy Policy to learn about the information we collect from you when you use the MDC Media Group Services, how we use it, and with whom we share it.

By creating an account, you understand that MDC Media Group Services include the provision of content created by various producers of such content (“Producers”), and you agree that the Producer of the Program(s) you purchase will have access to your account information and account activities, such as the viewing and purchase of the Producer’s Programs, and your contact information. MDC Media Group Inc. is not responsible for a Producer’s use or disclosure of your data and you are encouraged to review all third-party privacy policies thoroughly.

  1. Program Viewing and Purchase Options

Producers may offer the following purchase options through Producer-branded websites and applications:

  • Rental: After paying the stated fee, you may stream the Program an unlimited number of times during the stated rental period.
  • Purchase: After paying the stated fee, you may stream the Program an unlimited number of times; if offered by the Producer, you may download the Program.
  • Subscription: For a recurring fee, you may stream the Programs offered within a Producer’s subscription channel an unlimited number of times during your subscription period. The Producer may add or remove Programs from the channel at any time.

To make a purchase, you must provide a valid payment method. We may apply taxes, including HST, VAT or your local taxes, to any charges. Prices and other terms of purchase are subject to change. If a Producer provides you access to a Program on a free basis, such access will be deemed a “purchase” for the purpose of this Agreement.

ALL PURCHASES, INCLUDING RECURRING CHARGES, ARE FINAL AND NON-REFUNDABLE.

Free trials and Discounts: Producers may offer free-trial or discounted subscriptions. When a free-trial period ends, your paid subscription begins (unless you have cancelled) and you must pay the full monthly or annual fee. If a Producer provides a discount for the first subscription period, you must pay the discounted fee; in any renewal, you must pay the full fee.

Automatic Renewal: To the extent permitted by applicable law, subscriptions automatically renew for the subscription period until you cancel in accordance with all cancellation terms for the applicable subscription. Your payment method will be charged at the beginning of each subscription period. If a Purchaser offers a free-trial period, your payment method will be charged at the end of the free-trial period unless you cancel before the end of that period.

How to Decline Renewal: To pause or cancel a subscription, visit your account settings. Your changes will be applied to your next subscription period.

In-App Purchase: Producers may allow you to purchase subscriptions within apps you download. When you make such “in-app” purchases, you will be billed by the app platform, not us. To turn off automatic renewal for subscriptions, access your platform’s account settings (not MDC Media Group Inc.’s). Any billing inquiries should be directed to the app platform.

  1. Licenses and Intellectual Property

License to Programs: Subject to the terms hereof, you have the right to stream and/or (if offered) download for your personal entertainment purposes: (i) Programs that you have rented during the stated rental period; (ii) Programs that you have purchased; and (iii) Programs made available within a channel that you have subscribed to during your subscription period.

Restrictions: You may not resell streams or downloads, use any Program for any commercial purpose, redistribute or retransmit any Program, publicly perform or display any Program, or make derivative works from any Program. All rights not expressly granted herein are reserved by the applicable Producer.

MDC Media Group Service: Subject to the terms hereof, MDC Media Group Inc. grants you permission to use the MDC Media Group Services for the sole purpose of viewing Programs for your personal entertainment. All rights not expressly granted by MDC Media Group Inc. are reserved.

(i.e. in your profile, a comment, or forum), you grant MDC Media Group Inc. an irrevocable, worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, perpetual right and license to use, copy, adapt, transmit, distribute, license, and publicly perform and display such content in all media for any purpose whatsoever.

  1. Limitation of Liability

TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, MDC MEDIA GROUP INC., ITS PARENT, DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, REPRESENTATIVES, CONSULTANTS, AGENTS, SUPPLIERS, AND PARTNERS (INCLUDING PRODUCERS) SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR (I) ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES, INCLUDING DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, GOODWILL, USE, DATA, OR OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSSES; (II) DAMAGES RELATING TO ANY DISPUTE BETWEEN YOU AND A PRODUCER OR OTHER MDC MEDIA GROUP INC. USER; OR (III) DAMAGES EXCEEDING THE GREATER OF CAD $100 OR THE AMOUNTS PAID BY YOU TO MDC MEDIA GROUP INC. OVER THE 12 MONTHS PRECEDING THE FILING OF YOUR CLAIM.

The foregoing limitations apply to all claims, whether based on warranty, contract, tort, or any other legal theory, whether or not MDC Media Group Inc. (or a Producer) has been informed of the possibility of such damage, and whether a remedy set forth herein is found to have failed its essential purpose. Some jurisdictions may not allow the exclusion of certain warranties or the exclusion or limitation of liability as set forth above, so these limitations above may not apply to you.

  1. Arbitration Agreement; Jury Waiver; Class Action Waiver

This Section 10 sets forth a binding arbitration agreement between you and MDC Media Group Inc. (the “Arbitration Agreement”). In this Arbitration Agreement, you agree:

  • To arbitrate all claims relating to the MDC Media Group Services;
  • To waive your right to a trial by jury; and
  • To waive any right to proceed on a class basis in arbitration or otherwise.

10.1 Arbitration Agreement

The exclusive means of resolving any dispute or claim arising out of or relating to this Agreement (including any alleged breach thereof), or your use of the MDC Media Group Service shall be BINDING ARBITRATION administered by JAMS pursuant to its Streamlined Arbitration Rules & Procedures as modified by our Arbitration Procedures.

10.2 Overview

Arbitration provides a private dispute resolution process that is usually more streamlined and less formal than litigation. In an arbitration, your rights will be determined by a neutral third party called an arbitrator, and not a judge or jury. Both you and MDC Media Group Inc. are entitled to fundamentally fair proceedings at every stage of the arbitration, including the hearing (if any). The arbitrator will decide all issues relating to the dispute, including the question of arbitrability, and can grant any relief that a court could grant. Decisions by the arbitrator are enforceable in court and may be overturned by a court only for very limited reasons. For details on the arbitration process, see our Arbitration Procedures.

10.3 Location of Hearing

If you are a consumer, as defined by JAMS in its Consumer Minimum Standards, you may request that the arbitration hearing be conducted in the area in which you reside. Otherwise, the hearing (if any) shall take place in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

10.4 Class-Action Waiver

EACH PARTY WAIVES ITS RIGHT TO GO TO COURT, TO A TRIAL BY JURY, AND TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION, CLASS ARBITRATION, OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING WITH RESPECT TO ANY CLAIM SUBJECT TO ARBITRATION.

10.5 Exception for Small Claims Court Matters

Notwithstanding the above, each party has the right to bring an individual claim against the other in a small claims court of competent jurisdiction pursuant to Rule 1 of JAMS’ Consumer Minimum Standards. If one party files an arbitration that could be litigated in such a small claims court, the responding party may request that the dispute proceed in small claims court. If the responding party requests to proceed in small claims court before the appointment of the arbitrator, the arbitration shall be administratively closed. If requested after the appointment of the arbitrator, the arbitrator shall administratively close the arbitration so long as the proceedings are at an early stage and no hearing has occurred.

10.6 Binding Arbitration with Producers

To the extent that the Producer has agreed to resolve disputes with consumers through arbitration in its agreements with MDC Media Group Inc., you agree that any dispute with a Producer arising out of or relating to your purchase or viewing of a Producer’s Program or subscription channel shall be resolved by BINDING ARBITRATION administered by JAMS in accordance with this Section 10.

  1. General Provisions

Choice of Law: Any disputes relating to these Terms of Use or your use of the MDC Media Group Services will be governed by the laws of the Province of Ontario and the federal laws of Canada applicable therein (with respect to matters subject to federal jurisdiction such as copyright), without regard to principles of conflicts of law. The Uniform Commercial Code, the Uniform Computer Information Transaction Act, and the United Nations Convention of Controls for International Sale of Goods shall not apply.

Choice of Venue for Litigation; Jury Trial Waiver: Any proceeding to enforce the arbitration clauses herein, including any proceeding to confirm, modify, or vacate an arbitration award, may be commenced in any court of competent jurisdiction. In the event that the arbitration terms herein are for any reason held to be unenforceable, any litigation (except for small-claims court actions) shall be commenced only in the provincial or federal (as applicable) courts located in Toronto, Ontario. You hereby irrevocably consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of those courts for such purposes and, to the extent permitted by law, both MDC Media Group Inc. and you WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY in such an action.

No Waiver: The failure of MDC Media Group Inc. (or any Producer) to exercise or enforce any term of these Terms of Use will not constitute a waiver of such term.

Provisions Severable: If any term of these Terms of Use is held invalid or unenforceable, that term will be construed in a manner consistent with applicable law to reflect, as nearly as possible, the original intentions of the parties, and the remaining terms will remain in full force and effect.

No Third Parties: No third parties shall have any rights under these Terms of Use, except that Producers may enforce the terms herein against you, and indemnified parties may enforce indemnification rights.

Force Majeure: Neither MDC Media Group Inc. nor any Producer shall be liable for any failure or delay in performance of its obligations under this Agreement arising out of or caused, directly or indirectly, by circumstances beyond its reasonable control, including, without limitation, acts of God; natural disasters; wars; civil or military disturbances; sabotage; strikes; epidemics; riots; power failures; computer failure; loss or malfunction of utility, transportation, computer (hardware or software) or telephone communication service; accidents; labor disputes, acts of civil or military authority; governmental actions; or inability to obtain labor, material, equipment or transportation.

Entire Agreement: This Agreement incorporates by reference the MDC Media Group Privacy Policy, Arbitration Procedures, and Copyright Policy. Except for links to these documents, links to pages on the MDC Media Group Inc. website or any third-party materials are for convenience only and do not form part of these Terms of Use.
