Dr JC Hodge Video Streaming

Our Service includes Dr JC Hodge Video Streaming (MAVS), which allows users to stream Dr JC Hodge video content via the internet. The video content we provide using MAVS includes both free and restricted access, with restricted content only accessible to users who have registered as a member and have purchased a subscription to access that particular restricted video content. Purchase of a subscription does not give the member the right to a permanent download, and MAVS is to be accessed only for personal, non-commercial use.

Video Content

You understand and agree that the video content you access through MAVS is owned or licensed by Dr JC Hodge and is protected by international copyright and intellectual property laws and treaties. Purchase of a video subscription does not transfer any title, right or interest to or in the video content to you. When you purchase a video subscription through MAVS, we will provide you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable revocable license to stream the selected video content (in accordance with these Terms of Service) for a period of 12 months from payment of the cost of the video subscription. All rights not expressly granted to you pursuant to these Terms of Service are reserved to Dr JC Hodge. Dr JC Hodge may, in its sole discretion, make changes to MAVS and/or the video content, including but not limited to adding and/or removing video content. Dr JC Hodge does not promise you any of the following:

  • that you will have uninterrupted or error-free access to and use of MAVS;
  • that the video content on MAVS is accurate, complete, or suitable for a particular purpose. You must rely on your own judgment in relation to any matter of that type.

Restrictions on Streaming Video Content

You must comply with the Terms of Service and must not, nor permit, authorise or assist any other person to, do any of the following:

  • remove, alter, obscure or deface any:
    • patent, copyright, trademark, or proprietary rights notices of Dr JC Hodge;
    • trade mark, service mark, get up, livery, logo or branding, proprietary or restricted use legend; or
    • disclaimer, warning, instruction or advisory notice, which are contained in or affixed to MAVS or the video content
    • do anything that would prejudice Dr JC Hodge’s right, title or interest in MAVS and the video content
  • display, access or transmit the video content made available to you in a manner which results in you or a third party breaching any laws (including by infringing any person’s intellectual property rights or by breaching these Terms of Service);
  • sell, rent, lease, sub-license, lend, assign, time-share, distribute or otherwise make your MAVS member account available to a third party;
  • broadcast, display, communicate or re-transmit the video content made available to you:
    • to the public or in a public area;
    • to another person;
    • to a device other than your registered devices;

for a commercial purpose;

  • attempt to circumvent, modify, remove or interfere with any copyright notices or digital rights management software or restrictions connected to the video content made available to you;
  • reverse engineer, create derivate works of, modify, disable or alter MAVS or the video content;
  • duplicate or otherwise reproduce (including but not limited to “burning”) the video content, or any portion thereof, onto any physical medium, memory or device, including but not limited to CDs, DVDs, VCDs or any other such device, including but not limited to, any computers or other hardware, or other medium now known or hereinafter devised.
  • disrupt or try to disrupt MAVS or use it to distribute software viruses or other harmful programs.

Internet Connectivity

MAVS requires internet connectivity to function properly, and you acknowledge that video streaming may involve significant internet usage. The payments you make for MAVS do not include any charges for internet usage. You are solely responsible for any internet or mobile data charges that your internet or network service provider may apply in relation to streaming any video content through our Service. You acknowledge that your ability to stream video content and the quality of the stream is affected by many factors, including the internet connection (including the speed of data uploading and downloading) you are using and the volume of traffic on the network at the time you are streaming the video content, the specifications of the device you are using, and other tasks that your device may be performing simultaneously while the video content is streaming. MAVS will endeavour to adjust the video stream to allow uninterrupted viewing, however we make no guarantee as to the reliability, resolution or quality of the video stream you will receive. You also acknowledge that video content may not be immediately available for streaming once you have selected it.

Streaming Devices and Registration

MAVS can be accessed, from time to time, on a range of modern internet protocol enabled devices, such as laptop and desktop computers, tablets and smartphones. The system requirements to access MAVS will change to respond to changes in technology, so devices that are compatible now may cease to be in future. You acknowledge that MAVS may not work on all devices, and you are responsible for any costs to obtain a device that is able to access MAVS. Each member may register up to a maximum of three (3) devices for MAVS. A device may only be registered to one (1) member account at any given time. A member may elect to deregister any device from their account and register additional devices to their account at any time, provided that a member must not register any device that has been registered to (and de-registered from) more than two (2) other member accounts during the previous twelve (12) months. Upon deregistration of any given device from a members account, such device may no longer receive and/or playback any videos for that member.

Accuracy, Completeness And Timeliness Of Information

We are not responsible if the Service includes content that is not accurate, complete or current. The Service is provided for general information only and should not be relied upon or used as the basis for making decisions without consulting primary, more accurate, more complete or more timely sources of information.

You expressly agree that your use of, or inability to use, the Service is at your sole risk. The Service and all goods and services delivered to you through the Service are (except as expressly stated by us) provided ‘as is’ and ‘as available’ for your use, without any representation, warranties or conditions of any kind, either express or implied, including all implied warranties or conditions of merchantability, merchantable quality, fitness for a particular purpose, satisfactory quality, durability, title, and non-infringement.

If any guarantee, warranty, term or condition is implied or imposed in relation to these Terms of Service under the Australian Consumer Law or any other applicable legislation and cannot be excluded, and Dr JC Hodge is able to limit the remedy for a breach, then the liability of Dr JC Hodge for breach is limited to one or more of the following, at Dr JC Hodge’s option:

  • in the case of goods, the replacement of the goods or the supply of equivalent goods, the repair of the goods, the payment of the cost of replacing the goods or of acquiring equivalent goods, or the payment of the cost of having the goods repaired; or

You may terminate these Terms of Service at any time by notifying us that you no longer wish to use our Service, or by ceasing to use our Service. Dr JC Hodge has the right, in its sole discretion, to refuse, restrict or terminate access to any or all of the Service, including MAVS, at any time if we have reasonable grounds to suspect that you are in breach of this agreement.

In the event that any provision of these Terms of Service is determined to be unlawful, void or unenforceable, such provision shall nonetheless be enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, and the unenforceable portion shall be deemed severed from these Terms of Service. Such determination shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any other remaining provisions.


If you breach these conditions and we take no action, this shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. We will still be entitled to use our rights and remedies in any other situation where you breach these conditions.


We may assign any or all of our rights and obligations pursuant to these Terms of Service without the need to obtain your consent.
