The News 12 Wireless service (the "Service") is a service provided by News 12 Interactive LLC ("News 12") and CSC Holdings, Inc. ("Cablevision"; together with News 12 referred to herein as the "Operators") that allows both Cablevision subscribers and non-Cablevision subscribers, with a compatible wireless communications device to download and view News 12 video content (the "Content") via WAP (Wireless Application Protocol) directly to the device. The Service and the Content are provided to you pursuant to the terms and conditions of these Terms of Service (this "Agreement"). Do not download or view the Content or otherwise use the Service if you do not agree to the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement. In order to use the Service, you must be a registered user of the News 12 website, an Optimum Online or Optimum Voice customer, or a Cablevision customer registered with its online bill paying feature. In addition, the Operators may from time to time offer the Service to other persons.

In order to use the Service, you must have a compatible mobile communications device and a valid and existing connection for service with any wireless provider. In addition, you must provide all equipment and software necessary to make such connection, including a mobile hand set or other access device and ensure that they are in working order and suitable for use in connection with the Service. You are responsible for ensuring that that equipment and software do not disturb or interfere with the Operators' operations. Any equipment or software causing interference shall be immediately disconnected from the Service.

Other Agreements; Amendment. In addition to this Agreement, the provision of the Service and your use of the Content is subject to the Optimum Online Terms of Service available Optimum Terms of Service, the News 12 Terms of Usage available at http://www.news12.com/Login/terms, and the terms and conditions of your customer agreement with your wireless provider. In the event of an inconsistency between the terms of this Agreement and such other terms of service, the terms of this Agreement shall prevail with respect to the Services. The Operators may, in their sole discretion, change, add, upgrade or remove portions of this Agreement or the Service at any time. If any change in the Service requires changes in your equipment or software, you must effect these changes at your own expense. The Operators may notify you of any such changes to this Agreement by posting notice of such changes on the News 12 to GO Registration, or sending notice via e-mail or postal mail. Your continued use of the Service following notice of such change, modification or amendment shall be deemed to be your acceptance of any such modification. If you do not agree to any modification of this Agreement, you must immediately cease using the Service and notify the Operators that you are terminating this Agreement in accordance with the procedures set forth below in the Term and Termination.

Privacy. Please review our Privacy Policy for information on our security measures and the protection of your personal information. While the Operators maintain procedures to protect personal information transmitted through the Service, any such communications may be subject to breaches of security. The Operators are not responsible for any resulting damage to you for any such security breach, or from any virus, bugs, tampering, unauthorized intervention, fraud, error, omission, interruption, deletion, defect, or any other technical or other malfunction during any such transmissions.

Rates and Payment. Charges for airtime used in connection with the Service, including, without limitation, airtime used to access the Service, to download the Content and/or to use the Service will be assessed in accordance with the terms and conditions set forth in your customer agreement or calling plan with your wireless provider. In addition, you also may be assessed recurring or non-recurring charges from the Operators when you download the Content or otherwise use the Service. These charges may vary depending on your subscription status and whether or not you are a Cablevision or Optimum Online Boost subscriber, but they will either consist of one-time transaction charges or monthly or annual subscription charges. Any monthly or annual subscription charges will be automatically charged to you on the applicable anniversary date unless you terminate prior to the date. There will be no pro rata refunds if the Service is terminated prior to such anniversary date. The Operators reserve the right to change the charges for use of the Service and downloading of the Content by posting details of such changes on News 12 to GO Registration. The nature and amount of the charges will be as specified on News 12 to GO Registration, and will be charged either to your Cablevision cable bill or to your credit card, as agreed to by you as part of the sign-up process.

Use of the Service and Content. You acknowledge that the Operators may establish general practices and limits concerning use of the Service. You acknowledge that the Operators reserve the right to log off accounts that are inactive for an extended period of time.

The Operators shall use commercially reasonable efforts to make sure the information in the Content is accurate, but the Operators will not be liable in any way if such information is inaccurate or incomplete.

When using the Service, the Content downloaded, even if downloaded pursuant to an unlimited or other long-term subscription, can only be used for the wireless number you use to sign up, and only on the device to which the Content is downloaded.

Other wireless devices on the "family" or "shared services" plan must be registered separately in order to receive the Content. This also means that if you replace your device after downloading certain Content you will need to download the Content again to the replacement device and pay any applicable charges, surcharges and airtime associated with the download.
