Terms of Use

Welcome to Club Supercar’s Digital Products and Services. These Terms of Use, effective from 1 December 2012, apply whether you are a registered user or just a visitor to any of our Digital Products and Services. We explain what we mean by Digital Products and Services below under the section headed “What do these Club Supercar Terms of Use cover?”. By accessing or using our Digital Products and Services, you agree to be bound by these Terms of Use.

Who makes the Club Supercar Digital Products and Service available to me?

Our Digital Products and Services are made available to you by Club Supercar AG which is a registered company in Switzerland. Our postal address is Bogenstrasse 7, CH 9000, St. Gallen, Switzerland.

Why is it important to read these Terms of Use?

Our Terms of Use are important because they confirm both our legal commitment to you and a number of legal DOs and DONTs which you need to be aware of when you use our Digital Products and Services. Our commitment to you is supplemented by our Viewer Promise and our Privacy Policy. In return, we would ask you to act in a legally responsible and respectful manner in accordance with these Terms of Use.

Should I read any other information or terms?

Please also read our Privacy Policy and Cookies Policy. Each of these policies forms part of these Terms of Use.

Additional terms may also apply to some of our Digital Products and Services and they will be made clear to you at the relevant page or point of access.

What do these Club Supercar Terms of Use cover?

These Terms of Use apply to your use of most of our Digital Products and Services. We do not provide a complete list of our Digital Products and Services but by way of example, they include our website, Clubsupercar.com, Mobile Applications and our Content available through third party websites (including social networking sites).

When we refer to our Content, we mean any audio, video, text, images, trade marks, logos or other content made available to you by us and may sometimes include content which is owned or controlled by third parties which we are permitted to make available to you.

We will normally provide a link from the relevant Digital Product or Service to this document so that you know that these Terms of Use apply.

These Terms of Use apply regardless of the sort of device you are using to access our Digital Products and Services. Therefore, they will apply whether you are using a computer, laptop, mobile phone, smart phone, tablet, games console or any other device.

Is Club Supercar Content suitable for everyone and what parental control tools are available to me?

Our Content may contain material that you consider indecent, objectionable or which may not be suitable for young audiences. If you permit a child to use your device to view our Content, you are solely responsible for deciding whether or not such Content is appropriate for that child to view. Where relevant, parental guidance is provided (in the form of ‘G’ for guidance) with additional warnings at the beginning of our video content and other guidance on non-video content (where applicable) and we would ask that you pay attention to this if you are concerned in any way.

What does becoming a Club Supercar Member add?

By becoming a member, you will be able to access some parts of our Digital Products and Services which are not available to other visitors. You will also be provided with a more personalised experience and the ability to participate in conversations or other forms of interaction taking place across our Digital Products and Services.

By becoming a member of our Digital Products and Services you agree that you will:

  • not let anyone else use your account;
  • keep your login details, including your password secret;
  • set up your account in your own name, and use an appropriate display name. You must not seek to pass yourself off as someone else or pick a display name which is offensive, defamatory or otherwise likely to be deemed by us to be unacceptable;
  • notify us if you become aware of any unauthorised use of your account.

We may suspend or terminate your membership if we reasonably believe you are breaching any of these requirements or any of the other Terms of Use. Our decision to suspend or terminate your membership will be based entirely on our own best judgement.

Whether or not you are a member, when using our Digital Products and Services you must always act honestly and appropriately. Unacceptable behaviour includes being abusive, offensive, defamatory, infringing anyone’s privacy, trolling, harassing or doing anything which would upset or be disrespectful to any other person.

What do I need to know about my registered details?

You will be able to access your registered details with your email address and password.

You will be able to keep your information up to date by logging in and updating your profile.

If you want to terminate your membership, you can do so by clicking on ‘Close Account’. This will wipe the personal information you gave us from our systems, which means that all other information we might hold about you (such as how you have used our Digital Products and Services) will be anonymised and we won’t be able to recognise that data as yours or contact you about it. Please see our Privacy Policy for more details.

I’m concerned about my personal data. What can Club Supercar use this for?

Please see our Privacy Policy and Cookies Policy which explain what information we collect about you and how we use this.

Can I copy stuff from Club Supercar’s Digital Products and Services?

Apart from user content, all of the Content on our Digital Products and Services belongs to us and/or our partners.

Whilst we have no objection to you printing out extracts or a page of text from our Digital Products and Services for your own personal use, you must not copy or reproduce or otherwise publish large sections of our Content or, for example, an entire website.

You are not permitted to use any of our Digital Products and Services for commercial purposes. For example, you must not copy and reproduce our Content for use on your own advertiser funded website or attempt to commercialise or attempt to sell access to our Content in any way.

It is really important that our Club Supercar brand is fully protected from misuse. Our trade marks and logos are designed to let people know that the service they are getting is provided by Club Supercar. Therefore, you must not copy, reproduce or otherwise publish any of our trade marks or logos.

Is Club Supercar responsible for third party websites when it provides a link to these?

Sometimes we provide links to websites and resources operated by third parties. We are not responsible or liable for anything that happens to you when you visit these third party websites and resources. These third party websites may have their own terms of use so you will need to be aware of these. Furthermore, unless stated otherwise, Club Supercar does not endorse any third party website to which it provides a link.

Sometimes, third party websites provide links to our Content. This does not mean that we have any relationship with that website and you should be careful about assuming Club Supercar’s association or affiliation to anyone else, especially where the existence of that relationship has not been confirmed by us.

Are these Terms of Use still applicable when I connect to Club Supercar’s Digital Products and Services from a social networking service?

When you connect to our Digital Products and Services from a social networking service, these Terms of Use will still apply although you need to be aware that the social networking service’s own terms of use (and privacy and cookie policies) may also apply.

What are the rules I need to know about user content?

We provide our members with an opportunity to participate in shared activity such as contributing via online comments, blogs and other interactive activity.

Your participation in and contribution to any such shared activity is subject to your compliance with our Community Guidelines.

You will own your user content and may continue to use it, but by posting or submitting this content to us, you allow us to use your content in any media (including on television and online) throughout the world at any time.

Where we do use your user content, we also have the right to change or edit this. We might also show your name (and if available your photograph) with your contribution. If you would rather that we did not use your user content, we would kindly ask that you do not post or otherwise submit any user content via our Digital Products and Services.

What technical stuff do I need to know about?

We will try to provide our Digital Products and Services so that they are available to you at all times. However, we do not provide any guarantees about their availability or that we will be able to resolve quickly any technical problems that arise.

Whilst we seek to make our Digital Products and Services available as widely as possible, some features and functionality may not work on all devices.

Please note that matters relating to the internet generally, such as broadband availability, connections and speed and other matters outside of our control may affect the quality and availability of our Digital Products and Services. We take no responsibility for these sorts of matters.

Whilst we will take reasonable steps to ensure that our Content is virus free, we cannot guarantee this. Accordingly, you must take your own precautions in this regard (such as using anti-virus software). We accept no responsibility for any infection by virus or any other contamination or by anything which might have a destructive property.

What if I have a complaint?

Changes to these Terms of Use

Please note that we may change these Terms of Use from time to time at our sole discretion. Any revised Terms of Use will be applicable from the date these are published. You should review these Terms of Use regularly to check whether they have been changed or updated.

What other legal stuff do I need to know about?

To the extent permitted by law, we do not accept any responsibility for anything contained within our Digital Products and Services. To be clear, neither Club Supercar nor its subsidiary companies accept any liability (whether based in contract, tort or other action) for any loss caused by your use of our Digital Products and Services whether this is caused by Club Supercar or any third party. This exclusion of liability does not affect your statutory rights (please see this advice guide for further details).

Nothing in these Terms of Use excludes Club Supercar’s or your liability for death or personal injury caused by negligence or for fraud.

Any commentary, opinions or other material on Club Supercar’s Digital Products and Services are not intended to amount to advice on which you should rely.

If Club Supercar decides not to exercise or enforce any right that it has against you at a particular time, then this does not prevent Club Supercar from later deciding to exercise or enforce that right.

If any part of these Terms of Use is found to be illegal, invalid or otherwise unenforceable by a court or regulator, then, where required, that part shall be deleted and the remaining parts of the Terms of Use will continue to be enforceable.

These Terms of Use do not create or infer any rights that are enforceable by any person who is not party to them.
