Use of the STV Player and any related parts of our Website constitutes your acceptance of these Terms and Conditions.
There may be other terms and conditions within areas of the Website, which relate to your use of such areas, and such other terms and conditions will, together with these Terms and Conditions, govern your use of the Website.
We reserve the right to change these Terms and Conditions and any other terms and conditions contained elsewhere on the Website at any time.

If you do not agree to any changes that we have made, you should stop accessing the Website and the STV Player immediately.
You must be at least 18 years of age to view a programme on the STV Player which has a parental guidance indicator "G" setting.
Parental guidance controls have been set on the STV player to material which STV has pre-identified as unsuitable for children and young people. A statement of age is required in order to access such material.
If any child or young person has access to your computer then you are responsible for setting an appropriate level of protection. If you do not set up parental controls on your computer then any child or young person using your computer may be able to access all content available on the STV Player, including any content which has been labelled "G" for Guidance required (see below)*. Please use the parental controls on the STV Player to set the appropriate level of control.
If you chose to disable the guidance controls on your computer, then any child or young person using your computer will have access to all content available on the STV Player, including any content which has been labelled "G" for Guidance. If you choose to set a password, then any child or young person using your computer will only be able to access such content if you have provided them with your password.

Some of our Content may have been shown after the 9pm watershed and/or may contain material you may consider indecent, objectionable or offensive including but not limited to strong language, violence, nudity or scenes of a sexual nature. We will endeavour to label such Content using the "G" symbol for Guidance and to give you guidance so as to enable you to make an informed choice before viewing such Content and permitting any person below the age of 18 to access such Content on your computer.
We take "geo-blocking" measures to prevent access to some of our Content by you if you are located outside the United Kingdom. This is because we are subject to certain broadcast or licence restrictions in respect of such Content.

No waiver by us of any breach by you of any of these Terms and Conditions shall constitute a waiver of any other breach, and no failure to exercise or partial exercise by us of any remedy shall constitute a waiver of the right subsequently to exercise that or any other remedy in part or in full.
