Terms and Conditions
Agreement between user and USTVNow
The USTVNow.com website and app (collectively the "Site") are comprised of various web pages and a digital app operated by Dutch Phone Holdings Inc. ("DutchPhone"). The Site and the “Service” (as defined below) are offered to you conditioned on your acceptance without modification of the terms, conditions, and notices contained herein (the "Terms"). Your use of the Site or the Service constitutes your agreement to all such Terms. Please read these terms carefully, and keep a copy of them for your reference.
Site is an E-commerce Site
The Site and the USTVNow app turn a computer, iPad, iPhone and Android version 4 or higher device into an interactive TV screen, allowing people not only to watch TV in different parts of the house but also empowering travelers and expatriates to watch their TV while traveling or residing abroad. (These e-commerce functions are collectively referred to as “the Service.”)
The USTVNow Service was built for our troops and is enjoyed by patriots everywhere. Territorial content restrictions may apply. Our Service is offered principally to a small number American expats, state department and military employees overseas.
We do not delete anything from the original broadcast, cable or satellite TV feeds streamed to users, including commercials. The service in the continental U.S.A. is available as a TV anywhere service in combination with a regular cable subscription from USTVNow place shifting cable partners. If you are having trouble watching inside a U.S. military base, consulate or U.S. embassy please contact technical support.
Visiting the Site or sending emails to DutchPhone constitutes electronic communications. You consent to receive electronic communications and you agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures and other communications that we provide to you electronically, via email and on the Site, satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing.
If you use this Site, you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password and for restricting access to your computer, and you agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account or password. You may not assign or otherwise transfer your account to any other person or entity. You acknowledge that DutchPhone is not responsible for third party access to your account that results from theft or misappropriation of your account. DutchPhone and its affiliates reserve the right to refuse or cancel service, terminate accounts, or remove or edit content in our sole discretion.
DutchPhone does not knowingly collect, either online or offline, personal information from persons under the age of thirteen. If you are under 18, you may use Site only with permission of a parent or guardian.
You shall only use the Service for your own private, personal and domestic purposes. You shall not make the Service available and accessible to third parties, e.g., to an open group of people by exposure or display of the Service in public areas, including but not limited to cinemas, theatres, exhibitions, show rooms, hotels, bars, clubs, pubs, restaurants, or other public spaces. The receipt or further transmission of content and the use of the Service in such areas is illegal and may violate third party rights, including but not limited to copyrights and public performance licenses.
You acknowledge that the Service may only be used if the legal and technical conditions are fulfilled. It is your sole responsibility to make sure that your computer, IT systems, software and components fulfill the system requirements in order to be able to use the Site and that the contract between you and your ISP permit the use of the Services, in particular regarding bandwidth use.
Members may not link to URLs, use i-frames (or "in page viewers"), access content unless through the browser interface or an approved application or otherwise misuse the service.
DutchPhone may use your computer to utilize portions of streams from other DutchPhone users simultaneously in order to improve streaming. Your use of the Site and the Service to stream may, in turn, enable other users to utilize portions of those streams from you, thereby maximizing streaming for all users. You consent to other users' use of your network connection to utilize portions of DutchPhone streams from you.
Your subscription will automatically renew monthly unless you cancel on or before the renewal date. Refunds can be processed if you canceled on the renewal date. Transactions after the renewal date are not eligible for refunds. We recommend purchasing our non-renewing and non-refundable 1-day trial plan before upgrading to a monthly plan.

The Site may contain links to other websites ("Linked Sites"). These Linked Sites are not under the control of DutchPhone and DutchPhone is not responsible for the contents of any Linked Site, including without limitation any link contained in a Linked Site, or any changes or updates to a Linked Site. DutchPhone is providing these links to you only as a convenience, and the inclusion of any link does not imply endorsement by DutchPhone of the site or any association with its operators.
Certain services made available via the Site are delivered by third party sites and organizations. By using any product, service or functionality originating from the Site domain, you hereby acknowledge and consent that DutchPhone may share such information and data with any third party with whom DutchPhone has a contractual relationship to provide the requested product, service or functionality on behalf of Site users and customers.

You will be able to connect your DutchPhone account to third-party accounts. By connecting your DutchPhone account to your third-party account, you acknowledge and agree that you are consenting to the continuous release of information about you to others (in accordance with your privacy settings on those third party sites).

You agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless DutchPhone, its affiliates, officers, directors, employees, agents and third parties, for any losses, costs, liabilities and expenses (including reasonable attorney's fees) relating to or arising out of your use of or inability to use the Site or the Service, any user postings made by you, your violation of any terms of this Agreement or your violation of any rights of a third party, or your violation of any applicable laws, rules or regulations. DutchPhone reserves the right, at its own cost, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you, in which event you will fully cooperate with DutchPhone in asserting any available defenses.
In the event the parties are not able to resolve any dispute between them arising out of or concerning these Terms, or any provisions hereof, whether in contract, tort, or otherwise at law or in equity for damages or any other relief, then such dispute shall be resolved only by final and binding arbitration pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act, conducted by a single neutral arbitrator and administered by the American Arbitration Association, or a similar arbitration service selected by the parties, in a location mutually agreed upon by the parties. The arbitrator’s award shall be final, and judgment may be entered upon it in any court having jurisdiction. In the event that any legal or equitable action, proceeding or arbitration arises out of or concerns these Terms, the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover its costs and reasonable attorney's fees. The parties agree to arbitrate all disputes and claims in regards to these Terms or any disputes arising as a result of these Terms, whether directly or indirectly, including tort claims that are a result of these Terms. The parties agree that the Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision. The entire dispute, including the scope and enforceability of this arbitration provision shall be determined by the Arbitrator. This arbitration provision shall survive the termination of these Terms.
Class Action Waiver
Any arbitration under these Terms will take place on an individual basis; class arbitrations and class/representative/collective actions are not permitted. THE PARTIES AGREE THAT A PARTY MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN THEIR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PUTATIVE CLASS, COLLECTIVE AND/OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING, SUCH AS IN THE FORM OF A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION AGAINST THE OTHER. Further, unless both you and Employer agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
