GFN (“we” or “us”) provides an online video service offering a selection of television shows, movies, clips, and other content (collectively, the “Content”). Our video service, the Content, our player for viewing the Content (the “Video Player”) and any other features, tools, applications, materials, or other services offered from time to time by GFN in connection with its business, however accessed, are referred to collectively as the “GFN Services.”
The Content is available for permissible viewing on or through the following (collectively, the “Properties”):
- the Global Fuxion Network website (the “GFN Site”);
- GFN’s affiliate and distributor websites;
- other websites where users or website operators are permitted to embed the Video Player; and
- GFN authorized applications, features or devices.
Certain GFN Services are provided to you free-of-charge. There are some other GFN Services that, if you are interested in accessing, will require payment by you.

The Content. You may only access and view the Content personally and for a non-commercial purpose in compliance with these Terms. You may not either directly or through the use of any device, software, internet site, web-based service, or other means remove, alter, bypass, avoid, interfere with, or circumvent any copyright, trademark, or other proprietary notices marked on the Content or any digital rights management mechanism, device, or other content protection or access control measure associated with the Content including geo-filtering mechanisms. You may not either directly or through the use of any device, software, internet site, web-based service, or other means copy, download, stream capture, reproduce, duplicate, archive, distribute, upload, publish, modify, translate, broadcast, perform, display, sell, transmit or retransmit the Content unless expressly permitted by GFN in writing. You may not incorporate the Content into, or stream or retransmit the Content via, any hardware or software application or make it available via frames or in-line links unless expressly permitted by GFN in writing. Furthermore, you may not create, recreate, distribute or advertise an index of any significant portion of the Content unless authorized by GFN. You may not build a business utilizing the Content, whether or not for profit. The Content covered by these restrictions includes without limitation any text, graphics, layout, interface, logos, photographs, audio and video materials, and stills. In addition, you are strictly prohibited from creating derivative works or materials that otherwise are derived from or based on in any way the Content, including montages, mash-ups and similar videos, wallpaper, desktop themes, greeting cards, and merchandise, unless it is expressly permitted by GFN in writing. This prohibition applies even if you intend to give away the derivative materials free of charge.
The Video Player. You may not modify, enhance, remove, interfere with, or otherwise alter in any way any portion of the Video Player, its underlying technology, any digital rights management mechanism, device, or other content protection or access control measure incorporated into the Video Player. This restriction includes, without limitation, disabling, reverse engineering, modifying, interfering with or otherwise circumventing the Video Player in any manner that enables users to view the Content without: (i) displaying visibly both the Video Player and all surrounding elements (including the graphical user interface, any advertising, copyright notices, and trademarks) of the webpage where the Video Player is located; and (ii) having full access to all functionality of the Video Player, including, without limitation, all video quality and display functionality and all interactive, elective, or click-through advertising functionality.
Embedding a Video Using the Video Player. Where GFN has incorporated an embed option in connection with Content on the GFN Services, you may embed videos using the Video Player, provided you do not embed the Video Player on any website or other location that (i) contains or hosts content that is unlawful, infringing, pornographic, obscene, defamatory, libelous, threatening, harassing, vulgar, indecent, profane, hateful, racially or ethnically offensive, encourages criminal conduct, gives rise to civil liability, violates any law, rule, or regulation, infringes any right of any third party including intellectual property rights, or is otherwise inappropriate or objectionable to GFN (in GFN’s sole discretion), or (ii) links to infringing or unauthorized content (collectively, “Unsuitable Material”). You may not embed the Video Player into any hardware or software application, even for non-commercial purposes. GFN reserves the right to prevent embedding to any website or other location that GFN finds inappropriate or objectionable (as determined by GFN in its sole discretion).
Ownership. You agree that GFN owns and retains all rights to the GFN Services. You further agree that the Content you access and view as part of the GFN Services is owned or controlled by GFN and GFN’s licensors. The GFN Services and the Content are protected by copyright, trademark, and other intellectual property laws.
Your Responsibilities. In order for us to keep the GFN Services safe and available for everyone to use, we all have to follow the same rules of the road. You and other users must use the GFN Services for lawful, non-commercial, and appropriate purposes only. Your commitment to this principle is critical. You agree to observe the GFN Services, Content, Video Player and embedding restrictions detailed above, and further agree that you will not access the GFN Site or use the GFN Services in a way that:
- violates the rights of others, including patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright, privacy, publicity, or other proprietary rights;
- uses technology or other means to access, index, frame or link to the GFN Services (including the Content) that is not authorized by GFN (including by removing, disabling, bypassing, or circumventing any content protection or access control mechanisms intended to prevent the unauthorized download, stream capture, linking, framing, reproduction, access to, or distribution of the GFN Services);
- involves accessing the GFN Services (including the Content)through any automated means, including “robots,” “spiders,” or “offline readers” (other than by individually performed searches on publicly accessible search engines for the sole purpose of, and solely to the extent necessary for, creating publicly available search indices – but not caches or archives – of the GFN Services and excluding those search engines or indices that host, promote, or link primarily to infringing or unauthorized content);
- introduces viruses or any other computer code, files, or programs that interrupt, destroy, or limit the functionality of any computer software or hardware or telecommunications equipment;
- damages, disables, overburdens, impairs, or gains unauthorized access to the GFN Services, including GFN’s servers, computer network, or user accounts;

- violates these Terms or any guidelines or policies posted by GFN;
- interferes with any other party’s use and enjoyment of the GFN Services; or
- attempts to do any of the foregoing.
If GFN determines in its sole discretion that you are violating any of these Terms, we may (i) notify you, and (ii) use technical measures to block or restrict your access or use of the GFN Services. In either case, you agree to immediately stop accessing or using in any way (or attempting to access or use) the GFN Services, and you agree not to circumvent, avoid, or bypass such restrictions, or otherwise restore or attempt to restore such access or use.
No Spam/Unsolicited Communications. We know how annoying and upsetting it can be to receive unwanted email or instant messages from people you do not know. Therefore, no one may use the GFN Services to harvest information about users for the purpose of sending, or to facilitate or encourage the sending of, unsolicited bulk or other communications. You understand that we may take any technical remedies to prevent spam or unsolicited bulk or other communications from entering, utilizing, or remaining within our computer or communications networks. If you Post (as defined below in Section 7) or otherwise send spam, advertising, or other unsolicited communications of any kind through the GFN Services, you acknowledge that you will have caused substantial harm to GFN and that the amount of such harm would be extremely difficult to measure. As a reasonable estimation of such harm, you agree to pay GFN $50 for each such unsolicited communication you send through the GFN Services.
Downloads. In order to participate in certain GFN Services or access certain Content, you may be notified that it is necessary to download software or other materials or agree to additional terms and conditions.

We hope not to, but we may change, suspend, or discontinue – temporarily or permanently – some or all of the GFN Services (including the Content and the devices through which the GFN Services are accessed), with respect to any or all users, at any time without notice. You acknowledge that GFN may do so in GFN’s sole discretion. You also agree that GFN will not be liable to you for any modification, suspension, or discontinuance of the GFN Services, GFN may, in its sole discretion, provide you with a credit, refund, discount or other form of consideration (for example, we may credit additional days of service to your account) in accordance with Section 4 below. However, if GFN terminates your account or suspends or discontinues your access to GFN Services due to your violation of these Terms, then you will not be eligible for any such credit, refund, discount or other consideration.
