Any other use of Saorview Site content requires the prior written permission of RTÉ.
You are not permitted to use any trademark, patent, design right, database right or, copyright or any other intellectual property right of Saorview and/or RTÉ and/or any third party without the prior written consent of RTÉ or the relevant third party.
All copyright, trademarks, design rights, patents and other intellectual property rights (registered and unregistered) in and on the Saorview Site and all content (including all applications) located on the Saorview Site shall remain vested in RTÉ or its licensors (which includes other users).
The names, images and logos identifying RTÉ, Saorview, Saorview Connect, or third parties and their products and services are subject to copyright, design rights and trademarks of RTÉ, Saorview and/or third parties. Nothing contained in these terms shall be construed as conferring any licence or right to use any trademark, design right or copyright of RTÉ, Saorview, Saorview Connect or any third party.
Links to third party websites including without limitation retailers’ websites on the Saorview Site are provided solely for your convenience. If you use these links, you leave the Saorview Site. RTÉ has not reviewed all of these third party websites and does not control and is not responsible for these websites or their content or availability. RTÉ therefore does not endorse or make any representations about them, or any material found there, or any results that may be obtained from using them. If you decide to access any of the third party websites linked to the Saorview Site, RTÉ shall not be held responsible for any content, advertising, products, services or information on or available from third party websites, you do so entirely at your own risk.

Saorview Site content, including the information, names, images, pictures, logos and icons regarding or relating to RTÉ as well as to Saorview, its products and services (or to third party products and services), is provided "AS IS" and on an "AS AVAILABLE" basis. To the extent permitted by law, RTÉ excludes all representations and warranties (whether express or implied by law), including the implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, non-infringement, compatibility, security and accuracy. While RTÉ tries to ensure that all content provided by RTÉ is correct at the time of publication no responsibility is accepted by or on behalf of RTÉ for any errors, omissions or inaccurate content on the Saorview Site. While RTÉ endeavours to ensure that the Saorview Site is normally available 24 hours a day, RTÉ shall not be liable if for any reason the Saorview Site is unavailable at any time or for any period and access to the Saorview Site may be suspended temporarily and without notice in case of system failure, maintenance or repair for reasons beyond RTÉ’s control.
RTÉ is not the manufacturer or seller of the digital boxes, digital TV recorders, integrated TVs and any other such products referred to on the Saorview Site ("the Products") or the provider of installation services. Before purchasing any Product or installation service, RTÉ recommends that you obtain full details on the best Product for you and information regarding installation from your retailer. If you have a satellite contract or warranty agreement for a satellite dish that you already have, we recommend you check it to make sure that you are allowed to install other equipment (such as Saorview combi product) without affecting your supplier's rights or yours.
Nothing in these terms limits or excludes RTÉ's liability for death or personal injury caused by its proven negligence, fraud, misrepresentation as to a fundamental matter or any liability which cannot be excluded or limited under applicable law. Subject to the previous sentence, RTÉ shall not be liable for any of the following losses or damage (whether such damage or losses were foreseen, foreseeable, known or otherwise): (a) loss of data; (b) loss of revenue or anticipated profits; (c) loss of business; (d) loss of opportunity; (e) loss of goodwill or injury to reputation; (f) losses suffered by third parties; or (g) any indirect, consequential, special or exemplary damages arising from the use of the Saorview Site regardless of the form of action.
RTÉ does not warrant that functions available on the Saorview Site will be uninterrupted or error free, that defects will be corrected, or that the Saorview Site or the server(s) that make it available are free of viruses or bugs. You acknowledge that it is your responsibility to implement sufficient procedures and virus checks (including anti-virus and other security checks) to satisfy your particular requirements, in particular and without limitation, for the accuracy of data input and output.
If any term is determined to be illegal, invalid or otherwise unenforceable by reason of the laws of any state or country in which these terms are intended to be effective, then to the extent and within the jurisdiction in which that term is illegal, invalid or unenforceable, it shall be severed and deleted from these terms and the remaining terms shall survive and continue to be binding and enforceable.
The failure or delay of RTÉ to exercise or enforce any right in these terms does not waive RTÉ’s right to enforce that right.
These terms shall be governed by and interpreted in accordance with the laws of Ireland, and the courts of Ireland shall have exclusive jurisdiction over any disputes.
