SIMETV TERMS OF SERVICE
Welcome to SIMETV, a subscription video streaming service (the “Service”) provided by or on behalf of SIMETV and its current and future affiliates (collectively, “us”, “we”, “our” or "SIMETV"). The Service offers streaming of digitized versions of movies, television shows, concerts and other video content (the “Content”), on a subscription basis, available to you from time to time on http://www.SIMETV.COM or any software application that you have downloaded (“Software”) to view the Content (each, a “Site”). “You” and “your” means, as applicable, you and every person who uses the Service through your account. Please read these terms of service (“Terms”) carefully before you use a Site. By using any Site, you agree to abide by these Terms. If you don’t agree to comply with these Terms, then you may not use any Site. In these Terms, “residents of Québec” means residents of Québec to whom the Consumer Protection Act (Québec) applies in connection with the use of a Site and the Service.
Not all aspects of the Service, including, without limitation, certain Content viewing and access to high-quality video, will be available to you unless the applicable personal computer, digital set top box, gaming device, tablet device, mobile device or other digital device (each a “Digital Device”) you use to access the Service and your Internet connection satisfy the Service’s minimum technical requirements available at http://www.SIMETV.COM/help. We may change these requirements from time to time at our sole discretion. Unless we specify otherwise, you are solely responsible for updating or maintaining your Digital Device and Internet connection as necessary to meet these requirements. Since the Service is often transmitted over the Internet, you may experience, from time to time, video and/or audio dropouts, rebuffering or loss of connection. You are responsible for any data usage and charges you incur to access the Service through an Internet connection.
3. REGISTRATION, ACCOUNT AND PASSWORD

As part of the registration process, you may be asked to provide an email address and select a password, provide your billing information and certain other information. You agree that any information you supply during that registration process will be accurate and complete and that you will not register under the name of, nor attempt to use the Service under the name of, another person. You agree to promptly update any information as necessary to ensure that your account is kept accurate and complete, including, without limitation, any credit card information you designate for payment of your monthly subscription. If you do not update that information when necessary, then you may not be able to access the Service. You will be responsible for preserving the confidentiality of your password and will notify us immediately of any known or suspected unauthorized use of your account and agree to take any reasonable steps necessary to prevent any reoccurrence. If at any time you have forgotten your password and we are otherwise unable to verify your identity, then we may take any action that we deem appropriate, including, without limitation, deleting your account. You may be held liable for any loss or damage incurred by SIMETV or any other user or visitor to a Site due to another party using your account or password.
We may modify the Content made available on a Site at any time at our sole discretion without prior notice to you.
