- Access and Use
Our ability to invest in high quality content depends on our users complying with this Section 2. Please read our Copyright Policy that summarises how you are allowed to use EU Law Live Content and provides guidance on the types of use we do not permit without the purchase of additional licences from EU Law Live. You agree that you will comply with our Copyright Policy.
Organisations that may be using EU Law Live Content without the appropriate permissions may approach us with a view to discussing the purchase of a licence to legitimise that use.
The amount and types of EU Law Live Content that you can view, and the platforms on which you can view EU Law Live Content, depend on what type of user you are and what type of subscription (if any) you have. We can vary the access rights of registered users who are not accessing eulawlive.com through a paid subscription at any time and at our discretion.
For further access, we offer various types of individual and corporate subscriptions: see Section 4 for details of individual subscriptions, and for details of our corporate subscriptions. If you already have a subscription, details of your access rights can be found at Settings.
On registration, you must provide EU Law Live with accurate, complete registration information and it is your responsibility to update and maintain changes to that information on the applicable eulawlive.com registration or subscription pages. EU Law Live is entitled to rely on any information you provide to us.
Each registration is for a single user only. On registration, you will choose a user name and password (“ID”). The email address that you provide on registration must correspond to a named email account and not a generic or shared email account. You are not allowed to share your ID or give access to EU Law Live Content through your ID to anyone else. EU Law Live does not allow multiple users on a network or within an organisation to use the same ID. EU Law Live may cancel or suspend your access to eulawlive.com if you share your ID without further obligation to you. You may not create additional registration or subscription accounts for the benefit of others or with the aim of avoiding our use of IDs to control access to and use of EU Law Live.com.
You are responsible for all use of eulawlive.com made by you or anyone else using your ID and for preventing unauthorised use of your ID. If you believe there has been any breach of security such as the disclosure, theft or unauthorised use of your ID or any payment information, you must notify EU Law Live immediately by emailing us at email@example.com. We recommend that you do not select an obvious user password (such as your name) and that you change it regularly.
If you provide EU Law Live with an email address that mayresult in any messages from EU Law Live being sent to you via a network or device operated or owned by a third party (e.g. your employer or colleague), then you agree that you are entitled to receive those messages. You also agree that EU Law Live may stop sending messages to you without notifying you.
If you are a registered user of or subscriber to eulawlive.com then you may choose to use eulawlive.com’s “Remember me” log in feature that enables you to be logged in automatically to eulawlive.com whenever you visit eulawlive.com without having to manually log in each time. We recommend that you do not enable this feature on any computer that is or may be used by anyone other than you in order to prevent unauthorised access by third parties to both your subscription details and features of eulawlive.com personal to you.
- Personal Subscription Services and Temporary Access Passes
We offer subscription services through eulawlive.com and recommend that you read our Frequently Asked Questions for more details and before purchasing a subscription.
Types of subscription: unless you purchase a subscription to use eulawlive.com, your usage rights will be limited, as set out at Settings. We offer various types of subscription: the options currently available are set out at www.eulawlive.com.
Contract formation: EU Law Live will try to process your subscription promptly but does not guarantee that your subscription will be activated by any specified time. By submitting your payment and other subscription details, you are making an offer to us to buy a subscription. Your offer will only be accepted by us and a contract formed when we have successfully verified your payment details and email address, at which point we will provide you with access to your subscription. EU Law Live reserves the right to reject any offer at its discretion, for any or no reason.
Payment details: when you purchase a subscription, you must provide us with complete and accurate payment information. By submitting payment details you promise that you are entitled to purchase a subscription using those payment details. If we do not receive payment authorisation or any authorisation is subsequently cancelled, we may immediately terminate or suspend your access to your subscription. In suspicious circumstances we may contact the issuing bank/payment provider and/or law enforcement authorities or other appropriate third parties. If you are entitled to a refund under these terms and conditions we will credit that refund to the card or other payment method you used to submit payment, unless it has expired, in which case we will contact you.
Pricing: the subscription price will be made clear to you on our sign-up pages or otherwise during the sign-up process and may vary from time to time. You agree to pay the fees at the rates notified to you at the time you purchase your subscription. Our subscription services require a one-off payment. The currency in which your subscription is payable will be specified during the order process, depending on the service and your country of residence. Eligibility for any discounts is ascertained at the time you subscribe and cannot be changed during the term of your subscription. We will always tell you in advance of any increase in the price of your subscription and offer you an opportunity to cancel it if you do not wish to pay the new price.
Trial subscriptions: where we provide a trial subscription, we will inform you of the full subscription price that is payable after the trial period. After the trial, your subscription will renew automatically at the full subscription price unless you cancel your subscription before the end of the trial.
Please note that no more than one trial subscription per subscriber is allowed in any 12 month period. We reserve the right to cancel any trial subscription immediately, without refund, if we become aware that the subscriber has already had another trial subscription in the previous 12 months.
Taxes: EU Law Live is registered for VAT. Our VAT registration number is B88559349.
Prices stated on our website are not inclusive of any applicable value added tax (VAT) or other sales taxes. The breakdown of any applicable VAT payable with your order is indicated on the invoice you will receive with your purchase.
Pricing errors: if we incorrectly state a price to you whether online or otherwise, we are not obliged to provide you with a subscription at that price, even if we have mistakenly accepted your offer to buy a subscription at that price, and we reserve the right to subsequently notify you of any pricing error. If we do this, you may cancel the subscription without any obligation to us and we will refund you any money you have paid us in full, or you may pay the correct price. If you refuse to exercise either of these choices then we may cancel your subscription and will refund you any money you have paid us in full. We will always act in good faith in determining whether a genuine pricing error has occurred.
Other costs: in addition to the subscription fee you are charged, certain banks will charge a foreign transaction fee on transactions which take place abroad or in a foreign currency. EU Law Live is not responsible for any such charges. You are also responsible for paying any internet connection or telecommunications charges that you may incur by accessing eulawlive.com or using the services available on it. For example, if you use any of our mobile services then your network operator may charge you for data or messaging services.
- Renewal and Cancellation of Personal Subscriptions
At least 14 days before each renewal you will be sent a reminder notice stating the rate that will apply for the renewal period. Unless you notify us before the end of your annual subscription period that you no longer wish to receive it, your annual subscription will renew for another year. We will charge the subscription using the same payment method that you previously used.
Subsequent cancellation of your subscription: You do not have any right to cancel your subscription or any part of it until the end of the subscription period that is in place at that time. Although you may notify us of your intention to cancel at any time, such notice will only take effect at the end of that subscription period, and you will not receive a refund (except in the limited circumstances set out in these terms).
How to cancel: You may notify us of your wish to cancel your subscription by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org statingthe following: “I/We hereby give notice that I/we cancel my/our subscription”. Please then include:
- The subscriber’s full name (person listed in the billing information if different from the user)
- The Account email address or Account Number (Customer Reference Number)
- The billing address or delivery address (Including zip code/postcode)
- Your contact telephone number
Cancellations by us: EU Law Live reserves the right to suspend or terminate your subscription if you breach these terms and conditions, with or without notice and without further obligation to you. We may also suspend or terminate your subscription if we are prevented from providing services to you by circumstances beyond our control. If we terminate your subscription for any reason and/or permanently cease to operate eulawlive.com, the EU Law Live Content or cease to provide subscription services then, unless there are exceptional circumstances, we will provide you with a pro rata refund. This means that we will refund you any amounts that you have paid us in advance that relate to any remaining and unexpired period of your subscription.
Cancellation of your registration: If you are a registered user, but not a subscriber, then EU Law Live reserves the right to suspend or terminate your registration at any time, with or without notice and without further obligation to you. If you would like to cancel your registration then please contact our customer services team at email@example.com.
- Third Party Sites and Services
Eulawlive.com may contain links to other internet websites or online and mobile services provided by independent third parties, including websites of our advertisers and sponsors (what we call “Third Party Sites”), either directly or through frames. Third Party Sites may be co-branded with EU Law Live and so include EU Law Live’s trade marks.
EU Law Live.com contains advertising and sponsorship. Advertisers and sponsors are responsible for ensuring that material submitted for inclusion on eulawlive.com complies with international and national law. EU Law Live is not responsible for any error or inaccuracy in advertising or sponsorship material.
Copyright in any software that is made available for download from eulawlive.com belongs to EU Law Live or its suppliers. Your use of the software is governed by the terms of any licence agreement that may accompany or be included with the software. Do not install or use any of this software unless you agree to such licence agreement. EU Law Live is not responsible for any technical or other issues that may happen if you download third party software.
- Our Responsibilities To You
A summary of what this section means: this section is important and you should read it carefully. It makes clear to what extent, if any, EU Law Live accepts responsibility (liability) to you for your use of eulawlive.com or the EU Law Live Content or in respect of any third party products or services that we refer to or link to on eulawlive.com.
In no circumstances do we accept responsibility for your use of Third Party Sites or in respect of any Third Party Products. By Third Party Sites we mean websites, online or mobile services provided by third parties, including websites of advertisers and sponsors that may appear on eulawlive.com. By Third Party Products we mean products or services provided by third parties.
Although this means that we accept very little in the way of financial responsibility for your use of eulawlive.com and the EU Law Live Content, we think this is fair on the basis that you can view certain content and services free-of-charge, and the cost of a subscription is relatively inexpensive. It is not commercially possible for us to accept more responsibility for your use of eulawlive.com than set out in this Section taking into account that we permit you to use eulawlive.com for no or a relatively inexpensive cost.

In this case, to the extent possible in the applicable jurisdiction, both you and EU Law Live agree that the courts of Spain will (subject to the final paragraph in this Section 8) have non-exclusive jurisdiction to settle any dispute which may arise out of, under, or in connection with these terms and conditions.

If any provision of these terms and conditions is found to be invalid by any court having competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of that provision will not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of these terms and conditions, which will remain in full force and effect.
Failure by either party to exercise any right or remedy under these terms and conditions does not constitute a waiver of that right or remedy. Headings in these terms and conditions are for convenience only and have no legal meaning or effect.
These terms and conditions constitute the entire agreement between you and EU Law Live relating to your use of the eulawlive.com website and other online services. They supersede all previous communications, representations and arrangements, either written or oral.
