Terms of Use


Welcome to www.digitaltheatre.com (the “Website”).

The Parties. In these Terms of Use (referred to herein as “Terms”), “Digital Theatre”, “we”, “us” and “our” refers to DigitalTheatre.com Limited operating in the UK and registered in England and Wales under company number 06570330, and all companies which are for the time being either a holding company, subsidiary or affiliate. The terms “subscriber”, “you” or “your” refer to you as an individual visitor or subscriber to our Website and other online services.

The Service. The term “Service” refers to our online video streaming service, offering subscribers the opportunity to view a selection of films, documentaries and other content (collectively, the “Content”), and includes our platform for viewing the Content (the “Platform”) as well as any other products, features, tools, materials, or other services offered from time to time through the Website.

Excluded Service. We provide a separate service to educational institutions through our website https://edu.digitaltheatreplus.com. This service is governed by independent licence agreements. The Services governed by these Terms are for personal and private use only and are not licenced for educational use.

Rental Service. When you rent Content (“Rented Content”), you may view such Rented Content an unlimited number of times for a period of forty-eight (48) hours from the time of purchase as noted in your confirmation email (“Viewing Period”). Pausing, stopping, or rewinding the Rented Content will not extend your Viewing Period. You may only watch Rented Content on one device at a time (either online or offline). To watch or download Rented Content on another device, you must remove it from the first device. Please note, your contract for the purchase and use of the Rented Content is completed when the Rented Content is made available to you, and you will be charged for the purchase at that time. You can cancel your purchase at any time up to the point at which the Rented Content becomes available to you. We will need to cancel your order if the Rented Content is withdrawn from our Service before it is made available to you, in which case, we shall promptly refund you any amounts paid by you.

Live Theatre Service. Digital Theatre may offer you the chance to view live theatre on a one-time pay per view basis (“Live Theatre Service”). You will be charged at the time of purchase for the Live Theatre Service.

Acceptance. Please read these Terms carefully. Your use of the Service is subject to these Terms. By using the Service, you signify your acceptance of these Terms. In clicking on the “Subscribe” button, or any button with similar functionality, you are entering into a legally binding agreement with us to purchase the Services. You may not use the Service if you do not accept these Terms.

Privacy Policy. We process information about you in accordance with our Privacy Policy. These Terms incorporate our Privacy Policy. By using our Services, and agreeing to these Terms, you consent to such processing and you warrant that all data provided by you is accurate.

Term. These Terms will become effective and binding when you voluntarily provide any information about yourself to us, register with us and/or use the Services. Your subscription will continue until cancelled in accordance with these Terms (see the “Cancellation” section).

Free Trials. On occasion, we may offer free trials. The duration of your free trial will be specified during registration. We reserve the right to determine eligibility for free trials, and we may limit eligibility or duration to prevent free trial abuse. We also reserve the right to revoke the free trial and put your account on hold if we determine that you are not eligible. Promotional offers and free trials cannot be combined. You will not receive a notice from us that your free trial has ended and that payment for your subscription is due. If you wish to avoid charges to your Payment Method, you must cancel your subscription prior to the end of the free trial period. You can cancel your subscription at any time (see the “Cancellation” section).

Billing. We charge a fee to access the Service which is inclusive of any applicable VAT or other taxes. The first payment is taken on the day you register, or if you have a free trial or other promotional offer, on the day your free trial or promotional offer period expires. Your “Billing Period” is the interval of time between each recurring billing date (for example, one month). You acknowledge that the timing of when you are billed and the amount you are billed each Billing Period may vary if the day your subscription began does not exist in the relevant month (for example, if you became a paying subscriber on 31 January, your Payment Method would next be billed on 28 February, 31 March, 30 April and so on), due to free trials, other promotional offers or changes in your subscription or Payment Method.

Automatic Renewal. Your subscription will continue and automatically renew on a recurring basis corresponding to the term of your subscription unless and until you cancel your subscription, or your account is otherwise suspended or terminated pursuant to these Terms. You can cancel your subscription at any time (see the “Cancellation” section).

Price Variations. We reserve the right to change the terms of your subscription, including price, from time to time, effective as of the beginning of your next Billing Period following the date of the change. We may also add, delete, or change some or all of the Service provided for free at any time. You will be notified of any such changes and given the option to continue to use or to terminate your account. You will be responsible for all charges for using these additional services if you choose to continue use.

Payment Method. Unless otherwise indicated, you will be required to provide a current, valid, accepted method of payment as may be updated from time to time (“Payment Method”). Unless you cancel your subscription before your billing date, you authorise us to charge your Payment Method a subscription fee for the next Billing Period, and any applicable taxes. You are solely responsible for any and all fees charged to your Payment Method. If you want to use a different Payment Method than the one you provided during registration, you may edit your Payment Method by logging into your account and selecting “Billing Details”.

Failed Payment. In the event of a failed attempt to charge your Payment Method (for example, if your Payment Method has expired), we reserve the right to retry billing your Payment Method. We may suspend or cancel your access to the Service if we remain unable to successfully charge a valid Payment Method. We also reserve the right to pursue any amounts you fail to pay in connection with your subscription including collection costs, bank overdraft fees, collection agency fees, reasonable legal fees and arbitration or court costs.

Subscriber Cancellation. You can cancel your subscription at any time by logging into your account and selecting “Billing Details” and then “Cancel Subscription”. You will continue to have access to the Service through the end of your current Billing Period. Payments are non-refundable. We do not provide refunds for any partial Billing Periods or unwatched Content. If you cancel your subscription your account will automatically close at the end of your Billing Period. If you cancel your subscription before the expiry of your free trial, you will not be charged.

You agree that we may cancel your subscription or use of our Service immediately, without prior written notice, if in our opinion you have failed to comply with any of the provisions of these Terms.

No partnership. The parties are independent contractors, and no agency, partnership, joint venture, employee/employer or franchisee/franchisee relationship is intended or created by these Terms.
 
No Waiver. Any failure of Digital Theatre to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.

Unsolicited Materials. We do not accept unsolicited materials, including scripts, story lines, articles, fan fiction, drawings, suggestions, ideas or concepts. Our policy is to delete any materials without reading them. We are therefore not responsible for the similarity in any elements of the Content and any unsolicited materials.

Survival.

The section titles in these Terms are inserted only as a matter of convenience and have no legal or contractual effect.
