3. Technical Issues
3.1 Technical requirements to use the Service
Before registering, please ensure you have all the necessary equipment, systems and connectivity to use the Service properly. Elisa is not able to specify particular requirements and is not responsible in any way for your ability or inability to use the Service. Minimum system requirements and applicable equipment are specified on the Website but even compliance with these does not guarantee you will be able to use the Service and Content successfully. In order to test your ability to use the service, you will have a 30-day free trial period, as further described above under Section 4.
You acknowledge that the availability of the Service and in particular the streaming of Content may be affected by internet traffic congestion or by other networks, ISP, electronic, computer or other communication problems or failures and that Elisa is not responsible for such failure.
You also understand that the Service is a film streaming service which consumes a lot of data and may use international connections. In order to avoid any extra or unpredictable charges, a fixed-price internet connection is recommended for the use of the Service.
3.2 Links to other Websites or Services
Elisa may provide links to other websites or services for you to access, including Facebook through the EpicTV Facebook Application. You acknowledge that any access is at your sole discretion. Elisa does not review or endorse any other websites or services and is not responsible in any way for such websites or services or for any damage, loss or offence caused or alleged to be caused by, or in connection with, the use of or reliance on such websites or services.
In order to provide you with an easy-to-use service, Elisa will place a 'cookie' (a small text file) on any computer you use to access the Website. When you revisit the Website, this cookie will enable Elisa to recognise you as the account holder and provide you with direct access to your account without requiring you to retype any password or other user identification.
4. Free Trial
By registering to the Service you have a free trial period of 30 days. The free trial is available only once and only for newly registered users. In order to get the free trial, you must register to the Service by following the instructions on the Website. The free trial entitles you to watch a maximum of ten (10) films and to see other Content in the Service.
When you register for the Service and start your free trial, your method of payment will be authorised for up to one (1) month of Service in order to verify your identity and to protect Elisa from theft and fraud. Some banks or payment card companies may reflect this authorisation against your available balance or credit limit. No actual charges, however, will be made against the card if you cancel the Service prior to the end of the free trial.
The free trial period will begin on the date registration is completed and the account is successfully created and ends after thirty (30) days. You may inform Elisa during the free trial that you want to be a fully registered user. In that case, monthly invoicing starts from the date Elisa has received such information and has given you full access to the Service and Content.
