These terms and conditions apply whenever you access the network, on whatever device. In these terms and conditions, when we say Voice Online, we mean this network, regardless of how you access it.

Some areas of Voice Online require registration. By completing the initial registration form and by entering your email address and password, you will be deemed to have accepted these terms and conditions.

If you have registered with us and subsequently change your details, you should immediately notify us of any changes by emailing the user support team at web@gvmedia.co.uk. Any changes we make to the terms and conditions will be reflected on this page.

1. Registration

When you register, you are registering as a personal user of Voice Online. Access to registration areas is via your email address and password. We allow you access to the registration areas of the site on the basis that:

(ii) you will not do anything which would assist anyone who is not a registered user to gain access to any registration area of Voice Online

(iii) you do not maliciously create additional registration accounts for the purpose of abusing the functionality of the site, or other users; nor do you seek to pass yourself off as another user

(iv) you are agreeing to abide and be bound by these terms and conditions.

If, for any reason, we believe that you have not complied with these requirements, we may, at our discretion, cancel your access to the registration areas of Voice Online immediately and without giving you any advance notice.

2. Termination of registration

If we wish to bring the agreement to an end, we will do so by emailing you at the address you have registered stating that the agreement has terminated. The agreement will terminate and your email address and password will become invalid on Voice Online immediately.
