1.2

(a) By subscribing for, accessing or using content on www.watchloi.ie (including all sub-sites and micro-sites controlled by Watch LOI) (the “Site”), you are entering into a contract with Watch LOI and you are acknowledging and agreeing to the disclaimers, terms and conditions (“Terms”) set forth below. If you do not agree to these Terms, you should not use the Site.

2. The Watch LOI Service

2.1

The Watch LOI service comprises the provision of online access to various types of content relating to the FAI League of Ireland competitions and such other various types of content relating to the FAI as Watch LOI may decide in its discretion to make available on the Service. This content includes the streaming of matches and the provision of news, updates, fixtures and other information of interest to FAI fans (“Content”). While some Content is available in all countries without the requirement to pay a subscription fee, the availability of certain premium Content, such as a live or deferred match broadcast or a pass product (“Premium Content”), is restricted to certain geographical regions and is subject to payment of a subscription fee. Collectively the provision of Content and associated services are referred to in these Terms as the “Watch LOI Service”.

2.2

These Terms do not authorise you to receive any other pay-per-view or other services of any kind from GAAGo Media Limited, Watch LOI, RTÉ, the Gaelic Athletic Association (the “GAA”) or the FAI.

3. Availability of Game Content

3.1

Any specific geographical or cost conditions associated with particular Premium Content or package of content (e.g. passes, individual games, etc.) are specified on the Watch LOI access points, for example the Site. If you choose to subscribe for Premium Content, you are responsible for paying the associated charges and for understanding any geographical restrictions associated with the Premium Content. Access to Watch LOI is based on the location of the viewer. Therefore, if you are not located in the appropriate country to receive the particular Watch LOI Service, the Watch LOI Service will not be available to you, even if you have paid for it.

3.2

If you choose to purchase any Premium Content, you are representing and warranting to Watch LOI that:

(a) you are over 18 of age;
(b) you agree to pay the specified charges for the relevant Watch LOI Service;
(c) you have read and understood the geographical or other restrictions associated with the particular Watch LOI Service(s); and
(d) you and any person who accesses or uses the Watch LOI Service(s) will comply with these Terms.

3.3 Deferred/On Demand Content

Watch LOI recognise that kick-off times for matches in Ireland are not always practical for viewers abroad. Accordingly, for Premium Content, there are ten separate 24-hour periods from the time the Premium Content first becomes available on-demand to watch the purchased Premium Content on the Site. Premium Content can be watched as many times as you like in each of those ten 24-hour periods. However, you may not download or attempt to save Content for viewing otherwise than on the Site.

3.4

Watch LOI shall use commercially reasonable endeavours to make the Site available continuously. However, we do not warrant that the Site or any Content will be available on a 24-hour basis as it may be necessary to temporarily or permanently remove Content for technical maintenance or other operational reasons. If we remove Premium Content permanently without providing you with a reasonable opportunity to view it, you may apply for a refund of the charges associated with that Content. If you have purchased a pass product, any refunds will be applied on a pro-rata basis.

4. Your Account Information

If you purchase Premium Content on behalf of someone else, you should provide the recipient's email address at the point of purchase. When you receive the email confirmation you should forward it to the recipient.
