3    THE SERVICES

The Website may provide communication tools such as user generated reviews/comments, user generated content ratings, user profiles, forums, chat areas, private messaging, and/or other message or communication facilities (“the Services”) designed to enable you to communicate with others. Unless stated otherwise the Services are for your personal and non-commercial use only.

4    CHILD SUPERVISION

SoccerHolidays.com is concerned about the safety and privacy of its users, particularly children. Parents who wish to allow their children access to and use of the Website/Services should supervise such access and use. Be aware that you will be authorising that your child can access all of the Services that are provided either now or in the future, including user generated reviews/comments, user generated content ratings, user profiles, forums, chat areas, private messaging, and/or other message or communication facilities. It is therefore your responsibility to determine which Services are appropriate for your child. It is recommended that you do not reveal personally identifiable information about yourself or your children via any of the Services, always use caution if you choose to reveal any such information.

5    USER ACCOUNT, PASSWORD AND SECURITY

If a particular Service requires you to open an account you will be required to complete the registration process by providing your email address and registering a username and password for use with the Services. Any other information that you provide is entirely optional. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of the username and password and also for all activities that take place under your account. You agree to immediately notify SoccerHolidays.com of any unauthorised use of your password or account or any other breach of security. In no event will SoccerHolidays.com be liable for any indirect or consequential loss or damage whatsoever resulting from the disclosure of your username and/or password. You may not use another person’s account at any time, without the express permission of the account holder.

If you choose a username that bears no relation to your own real name, please be aware that you could subsequently be asked to change it. This would be necessary in the event that the username you have chosen is the same as the real name of a new prospective member. For example, if you choose a username that implies the intention of impersonating an established member of the sporting or journalistic community, or indeed any individual or business in the public domain that already has legitimate rights to that username, and this person/entity subsequently wishes to register as a member of the Website, you could be asked to change it. SoccerHolidays.com will take careful steps to verify that the prospective member of the Website has a valid claim to your username. Failure to comply with requests by SoccerHolidays.com to change your username will result in your username being changed automatically by the Website.
