JV Life Terms of Use

Welcome to the JV-Life Website of Aston Villa Football Club (the “Club”). This website is owned by the Club and operated by McCann Erikson Central Limited (“McCann”) on behalf of the Club. Please take a moment to read these Terms of Use. References to “we”, “us” and “our” in these Terms of Use are references to the Club.

A binding contract will be formed on the basis of these Terms of Use between you, as parent, and the Club upon confirmation by us of our acceptance of the JV-Life membership form you submitted.

IF YOU ARE A PARENT OR GUARDIAN AND YOU GIVE CONSENT TO YOUR CHILD'S REGISTRATION AND MEMBERSHIP WITH JV-LIFE, YOU AGREE TO COMPLY WITH THESE TERMS OF USE IN RESPECT OF THE JV-LIFE WEBSITE AND YOU ALSO AGREE TO ENSURE THAT YOUR CHILD COMPLIES WITH THESE TERMS OF USE.

If you do not accept any of these terms, you should not submit a JV-Life membership form on behalf of your child.

We reserve the right to change the JV-Life Terms of Use from time to time and yours and your child’s continuing use of the JV-Life Website shall be treated as acceptance of such a change. We therefore recommend that you check this section of the JV-Life Website from time to time and for the duration of your child’s membership.
