Pitch22 Minors – Safeguarding Policy
Social media and modern technology, if used correctly, can be a vital resource for youth football clubs. Having the ability to communicate effectively can enhance coaching techniques as well as improve players’ and parents’ sense of belonging to the club. An avant-garde communication platform supports an image of a forward looking and modern club.
Pitch22 considers safeguarding children and good practice to be a key priority. Pitch22 is designed to facilitate safe communication between players, parents and staff and allow the club to focus on the job at hand: developing young players into adults who can make a positive contribution to society. In the interest of children’s safety and wellbeing, Pitch22 was developed using the principles identified in the English Football Association Child Protection Policy.
“Every child or young person, defined as any person under the age of 18, who plays or participates in football should be able to take part in an enjoyable and safe environment and be protected from abuse. This is the responsibility of every adult involved in football.”
Pitch22 meets all the requirements of the Football Association Safeguarding Children Policies and Best Practice guidelines;
The Pitch22 Minors Safeguarding Policy advocates the following rules, with which you shall comply:
1. Safeguarding children is everyone’s responsibility;
2. All Clubs using Pitch22 must sign up to this Safeguarding Children Statement;
3. All Clubs and End-Users must strive to create a safe space for young footballers to communicate and support their development;
4. Clubs are responsible for ensuring all content on the site abides by the Pitch22 Safeguarding Children statement and must report any content or activity which is or is likely to be in breach of the said statement;
5. Parents or legal guardians must and shall have access to all the communication on the Pitch22 Website and Web Application being shared between the minor for whom they are responsible and all third-parties including players and members of staff;

You agree that the Operator shall not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of the Website Services and it is your obligation to safeguard your data by carrying out periodic back-ups.

You agree to defend, indemnify and hold the Operator, its assignees and successors and each of its respective officers, representatives, directors, employees, agents, licensors and suppliers, harmless from and against any damages, losses, disputes, claims, actions or demands, liabilities and settlements including without limitation, reasonable legal and accounting fees, resulting from, or alleged to result from, your use of the content, Website or the Services in a manner that violates or is alleged to violate these Terms and Conditions or is otherwise illicit, unlawful or unauthorised.

Accordingly, some of the limitations in the Clause entitled “Legal Use & General Limit of Liability” and/or “Disclaimer of Warranties” may not apply to you. You agree however that such exclusions and limitations are reasonable in particular in light of the nature of the information technology communications industry which relies on third-party providers, including power and energy providers for which the Operator cannot be and is not responsible. In the event that this exclusion of liability is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be unlawful, the Operator’s aggregate total liability towards You for all such damages and losses shall be limited to fees, if any, paid during the three months preceding the event giving rise to liability to the Operator by the person suffering loss. In any event, the Operator shall not be held liable for any breach of these Terms and conditions or for any loss, damages or claims resulting from any force majeure or event beyond its reasonable control.
The Operator has the right to amend, alter, upgrade the Website, Services and Software (and or versions thereof) or to replace same with a new version entirely or in part without your prior consent or the consent of any Club or end-user third-party.
You acknowledge and accept that the Operator may apply software, services and/or applications belonging to third-parties for purposes of its Website and/or Services and therefore is subject to terms, conditions and policies of such third-parties. In all cases You shall refrain from doing any such act or omission that may jeopardise the relationship of the Operator with such third-party or that may cause any disruption, suspension or termination of service, software or application of said third-party.
In so doing You will provide information or other materials related to You or Your actions and omissions and content as reasonably requested by the Operator to verify your compliance with these terms and conditions. The Operator may monitor your performance and usage of the Website and Services to verify your compliance and may disclose results of such monitoring to the interested third-parties. You will not block or interfere with the Operator’s monitoring. You will reasonably cooperate with the Operator to identify the source of any problem that the Operator reasonably believes may be attributable to You or your content or any matter under your control.
The Operator shall endeavour to provide user support as follows:-
(a) By email on firstname.lastname@example.org. The Operator’s policy is to seek to reply to requests or comments as soon as possible but makes no guarantees as to immediate replies or for the provision of solutions or fixes;
(b) By phone on +356 27203777 during office hours between Monday to Friday (09:00am to 17:00pm CET) subject to public or national holidays.
The Operator always endeavours to achieve 100% uptime however it is unlikely that this level can ever be achieved due to the infrastructure of the internet, the reliance on third-party service provision, software bugs and other matters relating to the information and communications industry. When the Operator falls short of a 99% uptime level it shall endeavour but does not guarantee to find a turn around and explain why and how matters may be improved.
Any prices or any consideration for the Services offered via the Website by the Operator are currently published on the Website (available at https://www.pitch22.com/pricing). Published prices may be subject to VAT and other taxes, if applicable. The Operator reserves the right to negotiate customized prices and special offers in its discretion and/or to amend prices from time to time.
Generally payment for the Services offered by the Operator is carried out through third-party services (these currently being “PayPal”). In addition the Services offered by the Operator may require you to subscribe to the services of said third-party providers to receive and/or make payment. In all cases, by subscribing to the Services, You agree to (i) comply with any terms and conditions, guidelines and other similar rules of such third-party service-providers (including fair use policies) and You will be required to sign up and/or consent to same and (ii) you may be subject to the payment of charges and fees for the services provided by the third-party service-providers as applicable.
The Operator reserves the right to refuse payment by any means and/or to request any other method of payment and to request proof of identity or any other documentation as it deems fit.
You are responsible for paying all taxes and government charges, and all reasonable expenses and attorneys fees the Operator incurs collecting late amounts. To the fullest extent permitted by law, you waive all claims relating to charges unless claimed within 60 days after the charge.
To the fullest extent permitted by law, refunds of sums paid to the Operator are at the discretion of the Operator and generally only in the form of credit for the Operator’s Services. Nothing in these Terms obligates the Operator to extend credit to any party.
The Operator does not store your credit card details however you acknowledge and agree that any related billing and payment information that you provide to the Operator may be shared by the Operator with companies who work on the Operator’s behalf, such as payment processors and/or credit agencies, solely for the purposes of checking credit, effecting payment to the Operator and servicing your account. The Operator may also provide information in response to valid legal process, such as subpoenas, search warrants and court orders, or to establish or exercise its legal rights or defend against legal claims. The Operator shall not be liable for any use or disclosure of such information by such third parties. The Operator reserves the right to discontinue the provision of the Operator Services to you for any late payments and/or to charge commercial legal interests on outstanding amounts.
You explicitly acknowledge and agree that in terms of the applicable Distance Selling Regulations the performance of the Services provided on the Website by the Operator begin immediately upon accepting the Operator’s Club Terms and Conditions and/or EULA and prior to the expiry of the statutory fifteen day cancellation period (also known as the ‘cooling off period’) and therefore, taking this into account, no cancellation right shall apply except as may be otherwise accepted in the sole discretion of the Operator.
The Website and Services are offered to You on a personal-use basis subject to the Services available to Clubs, provided that any user who registers a Club does so on a “personal-use” basis.
You agree not to reproduce, duplicate, copy, sell, resell, or exploit for any commercial purposes, the Website and/or Services or part thereof. You may not assign or sell or otherwise dispose of your rights and obligations pursuant to this Agreement except with the prior written consent of the Operator.
Notices to you may be made via either e-mail or regular mail. It is your responsibility to ensure that the Operator always has your updated and valid contact details and to inform the Operator of any changes thereto. The Operator may also provide notices of changes to the Terms and Conditions or other matters by displaying notices or links to notices to you generally on the Website and/or Services.
Confidentiality: Any correspondence with the Operator or any of the Operator’s associated companies, agents, employees, or persons engaged or sub-contracted by the Operator shall be treated as private and confidential and failure to retain such information as private and confidential shall be an infringement of these terms which may cause substantial damages to the Operator.
These Terms and Conditions are governed by and shall be construed in accordance with the laws of Malta. If any provision of these Terms and Conditions is found to be invalid by any court having competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of these Terms and Conditions, which shall remain in full force and effect. No waiver of any of these Terms and Conditions shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or condition or any other term or condition.
The Operator seeks to resolve all disputes by amicable discussion and therefore in the event of any complaint, problem or concern you are cordially invited to raise the matter with the Operator who may consider the problem and if necessary may appoint an independent mediator to assist the parties in arriving at an amicable solution. Otherwise You expressly agree that the exclusive jurisdiction for any dispute with the Operator, or in any way relating to your use of the Website and/or Services, resides in the courts of Malta (EU), and you further agree and expressly consent to the exercise of personal jurisdiction in the competent Maltese courts or tribunals in connection with any such dispute including any claim involving the Operator or its affiliates, subsidiaries, employees, contractors, officers, directors, telecommunication providers and content providers.
