8. The Bearplay account

As a User, you open a Bearplay account. You can choose to become a member only, or to become a subscriber. A subscriber gets access to all material published on the site, including videos.

A subscriber currently pays SEK 389.00 incl. VAT per year. This purchase is a one-time fee and is not refundable. It is the responsibility of the User to choose whether to continue as a subscriber after 365 days have passed. Payment is made using the facilities offered at the Bearplay site. Bearplay may choose to raise or lower the price, or to make the service free of charge as desired.

Violation of the rules and conditions applicable at Bearplay may lead to the termination of the User’s account/subscription. In those cases, the subscription fee will not be refunded.

At any time, Bearplay may change the prices of subscriptions or other products offered at the site. However, Bearplay cannot request additional payment from a User who has paid the stipulated subscription fee. Users who do not fulfill their commitments to Bearplay’s cooperation partners may be suspended by Bearplay.


9. Language

The user contract may currently be concluded only in Swedish. However, you are welcome to use the services and subscribe, regardless of your country of residence. The same terms and conditions apply, and it is up to the User to find out what rules are currently in effect at Bearplay.


10. Technology

In order for you to watch videos at Bearplay, your computer needs certain capacity. It is up to the subscriber to find out if the computer meets the performance and software requirements for watching streaming video. For the Bearplay streaming service to function as expected, the User’s registered member information must be accurate and complete.

All videos published are provided on an as-is basis.

Bearplay shall not be liable for any failure or damage caused by the User or by faults or defects in the User’s equipment or other technical equipment belonging to any party other than Bearplay.

Bearplay shall not under any circumstances be liable for damage in the form of computer failures, intrusions, viruses or loss of data.

Unless otherwise stated above, Bearplay shall not under any circumstances be liable for any damage – whether direct or indirect, nor consequential damages – as a result of faults or defects in the service.

To find out if you can watch Bearplay videos and if you have the proper software installed, please visit, for example, www.svt.se/play and check if you can display the videos there. The video quality also depends on the speed of your Internet connection. The videos are streamed in different quality formats: 400, 800, 1200, 1800 and 2400 Kbps. Bearplay is not responsible for poor video quality caused by the User’s Internet connection speed.


11. Personal data

A User signing up as a member of, or as a subscriber to, Bearplay submits contact information for identification purposes. Bearplay may also obtain other information about the User, such as the number of visits, consumption pattern, IP addresses and login times. Furthermore, additional information may be automatically collected by means of so-called cookies.

By agreeing to these terms and conditions, the User accepts that Bearplay stores and processes such data and information in order to fulfill its duties and exercise its rights in connection with the User’s membership.

The User’s personal data will be saved as long as the User is a member of and/or subscriber to Bearplay, and some time thereafter if necessary for Bearplay to perform its obligations or exercise its rights vis-à-vis the User.

Bearplay will not separately sell these data to third parties. Such sale, however, may be made to entities owned and controlled by Bearplay or to other cooperation partner with whom Bearplay has signed a contract.


12. Bearplay’s responsibility

Although Bearplay has rules for Users concerning the publication of material, the company cannot control or take responsibility for what every individual User posts, transmits or shares via Bearplay. Nor shall Bearplay be liable for any offensive or inappropriate material at Bearplay generated by Users. Bearplay cannot guarantee that the Bearplay site will always be available. Some services may temporarily be down because of maintenance, updates or other types of interruptions.

All use of Bearplay and its services is the User’s own responsibility and must be at the User’s own risk.

Bearplay shall bear no responsibility for disruptions, transmission delays, failures in the Internet, broadband or other types of connections; theft or destruction of, unauthorized connection to, or alteration of, the User’s communications. Bearplay is not responsible for technical errors or other problems that may occur in the equipment or software of third parties. Neither shall Bearplay be responsible for loss or damage arising from the use of Bearplay or the services.

Bearplay strives to keep the Bearplay site free from viruses and other harmful software or malware, but it cannot be guaranteed that the site will always be free from such attacks.


13. Right of withdrawal

The films distributed electronically in the form of streaming videos are provided by a Bearplay cooperation partner. Bearplay is not responsible for disruptions or other problems that may arise in the equipment or software of such partner. Bearplay provides the User with a service according to the Swedish Distance Contracts Act. Since Bearplay’s performance of the service begins once the order confirmation is sent to the User, the withdrawal provisions of the Distance Contracts Act do not apply.

By clicking on the “Submit” button on the order confirmation, the User agrees to Bearplay beginning the delivery.


14. Transfer of rights and obligations

Bearplay is entitled to transfer its rights and obligations under these terms to another party without the prior consent from the User. The User may not transfer his or her rights and obligations under these terms to anyone without Bearplay’s prior written consent. 


15. Governing law and dispute resolution

Any dispute concerning the interpretation or application of this contract which cannot be settled through negotiation between the parties, shall be referred to the Swedish National Board for Consumer Disputes. If the dispute is to be resolved in court, it shall be settled in a Swedish court pursuant to Swedish law. Any dispute shall be resolved in Karlstad District Court. 


16. Information

If questions arise in respect of these terms and conditions, or in case of other need for contact, the User is welcome to get in touch with Bearplay through the contact form on the site.
