  • 1. GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE

    These General Terms and Conditions of Use (“GTCU”) govern your access to, and use of online public communication services published by EEL, i.e. the free EEL sites and applications dedicated to sports information containing editorial, audio, video, multimedia and/or interactive content, and competitions and areas for user contributions (comments, discussion forums, etc.), where applicable (the “Services”), regardless of the receiver terminal and the medium, format and technical means to, in, or by which the Services are made available to you by EEL.

    The Services available as of the date of revision of these GTCU are listed in Appendix 1 hereto. The list is indicative only and subject to changes. You understand that Services may be added, suspended or discontinued at any time without notice.

    Your access to and use of the Services is conditional on your acceptance of and compliance with these GTCU. By accessing or using the Services, you unconditionally agree to be bound by these GTCU.

    We may revise these GTCU at any time, at our sole discretion, in order to adapt them to changes inherent in new media. You can review the most current version of these GTCU by clicking on the dedicated link on our Services. If you disagree with the revised GTCU, you are free to refrain from accessing and using the Services. By continuing to access or use the Services after revisions to these GTCU, you agree to be bound by the revised GTCU.

    Specific terms and conditions may apply to certain Services, such as, but without limitation pay-to-use Services, or competitions where applicable. In such case, the specific terms and conditions are supplementary to, and do not exclude the application of, these GTCU.

    Minors: Since the Services are intended for a wide public, parents and legal guardians of minor children should monitor and supervise their children’s use of the Services. Minors are not allowed to use the Services without the consent of their parents or legal guardians. In particular, they must obtain such consent before opening a user account.

  • 2. REGISTRATION MAY BE REQUIRED FOR CERTAIN SERVICES

    To access and/or use certain Services, you may be required to register for them by filling in the information required by EEL on the registration form.

    In such case, you represent and warrant that all information you provide to EEL for the purposes of registration and at all other times will be true, accurate, current and complete, and that you will not register, or attempt to log in, under the name of another person.

    Once you have correctly filled in and submitted the registration form and your registration has been confirmed by EEL, you will be able to access most of the Services for which registration is required, simply by logging in with your username and password. The registration-based Services to which you will not have access are those which because of their nature, require further information to be provided (e.g. pay-to-use Services, or competitions where applicable).

    We recommend that you keep your username and password safe and not share them with anyone because the profile thus created determines the rights and obligations of each user, against whom EEL will pursue remedies in the event of breach of these GTCU.

    EEL accounts are meant to be created and used by persons of all ages. However, minors should only create and use an EEL account where they have obtained the consent of their parents or legal guardians and should only use such account under parent/guardian supervision.

    EEL reserves the right, at any time and without prior notice, to deactivate the account or the access rights of any person who breaches these GTCU.

    Registration for, or connection to EEL Services via third party services.

    Alternatively, you may be permitted to register for, and connect to certain Services or certain features of the Services (e.g. comment areas) using your login from a third party service such as but without limitation, Facebook, Twitter, Google and/or Disqus.

    If you wish to access the Services in the above manner, EEL will need to create an account associated with the relevant third party service in order to collect certain information about you. The creation of such an account will be subject to your explicit approval, and the account will be governed by our GTCU and by the terms and conditions of use issued by the relevant third party service. No liability can be incurred by EEL in this respect.

      We may give you the possibility to react to posts as well as interact with others within the user contribution areas featured on our Services.

      In such case we encourage you to enrich the content of the Services by posting your reactions to all types of content: articles, online columns, blogs, live chats, comments, etc. These reactions may be in the form of opinions, additional information, suggestions, questions, etc. If you participate, you must do so in a constructive manner respectful of all.

      You need to be a registered user to access and participate in any corresponding Communities.

      To enable everyone to exchange views in a free and friendly manner in such communities, you should comply with the principles set out below. Any post not complying with such principles may be deleted by us without further substantiation.

      • Be polite and respectful

        Everyone is entitled to an opinion but must respect the opinions of others. Avoid losing your temper with, making fun of or attacking any other member of the Eurosport Community.

      • Express yourself clearly and legibly

        Don’t write in capital letters as this is construed as shouting, and other users could perceive your remarks as aggressive.

        Don’t use abbreviations, onomatopoeia, excessive punctuation or SMS language in your messages.

        Avoid posting messages exceeding 1,000 characters.

        Lastly, bear in mind that careful spelling and grammar make for easier reading.

      • Avoid disclosing personal information

        Our Services are open online media accessible to all. We therefore recommend that you do not disclose your true identity or make your personal contact details publicly available.

      • Abide by the applicable laws and regulations and respect the personal rights of individuals

        You are strictly prohibited from submitting any materials:

        • that are offensive, rude, aggressive, disrespectful or threatening;

        • that are of a pornographic, paedophile or violent nature;

        • that by their nature are likely to invade privacy or undermine respect for persons and human dignity, equal rights of men and women or the welfare of children and adolescents;

        • that contain third party content that is subject to any copyright, trademark or other intellectual property protections or proprietary rights, including any rights of confidentiality, privacy or publicity, unless you have permission from the third party to post such content;

        • that incite racial hatred, discrimination or violence or promote racism, xenophobia, sexism, homophobia or revisionism;

        • that are libellous or defamatory;

        • that contain viruses or other malicious code designed to interrupt, damage, destroy or limit the functionality of any computer software or hardware or telecommunications equipment; or

        • that encourage the use of drugs, alcohol or tobacco.

        In addition, we reserve the right to delete:

        • materials posted for advertising or promotional purposes;

        • off-topic messages;

        • texts reproduced without citing their source; and

        • any hypertext link to a destination that might create liability for us.

      You are solely responsible for all materials that you post on the Services and for all activities that occur under your login.

      Given the global nature of the Internet, you agree to comply with the rules of the jurisdiction in which you publish any content whatsoever. Accordingly, you agree to comply with the laws and regulations on content publication that apply in the United Kingdom and in addition, if applicable, those that apply in your country of residence.

      Reporting abuse

      As the host of websites featuring user contribution areas, we have no general duty to screen, monitor or edit the content posted by users of those areas. Posts are published immediately, without prior review by us. Consequently, users who find any post injurious, offensive or inappropriate are encouraged to report it to us by clicking on the “Report” link accompanying the post, whereupon we may remove the post and place a temporary or permanent ban on the poster’s account.

      The holders of accounts that have been recently created or from which a ban has been lifted have restricted rights in a first stage.

      If you consider that a contribution posted by you has been removed without good cause, you can contact us by email at ldeloison@eurosport.com.

      Lastly, if we have removed a contribution posted by you and/or placed a ban on your account, there is no use in trying to get around the situation by re-posting the same contribution or creating serial accounts: any attempted “flooding”, “trolling”,  creation of duplicate threads or usurpation of accounts will be systematically blocked.

      Animation of the Communities

      EEL may make use of accredited journalists and presenters and other suitably qualified persons to enhance the most relevant contributions in the Communities and to answer some of your questions.

      If you have any questions about content moderation or the functioning of the Services, or ideas for improvement, or have encountered any problem or wish to make any remarks, please do not hesitate to contact us at ldeloison@eurosport.com.

      Removal or correction of your contributions at your request

      You can at any time ask us to remove or correct one or more of your contributions by sending us an email at ldeloison@eurosport.com, specifying the address of the article, the screen name used, the date and time of publication and, where applicable, the desired correction.
