III. AGENCY SERVICESThe agency aims to provide the services of promoting young football talents U10-U21 through the www.ftsplatform.com websites and through the online magazine www.ftsnews.com, creating promotional profiles for young players, as well as allowing access to platforms for coaches, scouts and managers who show interest in watching young talents. While the main task of the online magazine, apart from the promoting young talents from the FTS platform, is providing visitors with information from the world of football, including history, the most important personalities, rules, football organizations and current football news.



The use of the FTS platform in terms of making promotional profiles is intended solely for registered users. Within the registration, the user is obliged to provide complete and accurate data and subsequently update them in the event of any changes. After completing the requested information and accepting the registration by FTS Football Talent Scouting e.U. the user will receive an email confirmation with the activation link for finalizing registration and creating the promotional profile. The User agrees to keep their access data confidential and to protect them from accessing unauthorized third parties. The access to the content on the site www.ftsnews.com, as well as in the User base on www.ftsplatform.com, is open to all visitors in accordance with these terms and conditions.





Access to the site www.ftsnews.com, as well as a part of the site www.ftsplatform.com is open to all visitors who adhere to these terms and conditions while part of the site www.ftsplatform.com (Database of coaches, managers, scouts) available exclusively to registered users of our agency services.

The Agency offers as its product a promotional profile of the football player with all the basic information about it as well as photos, videos, articles on the online magazine and additional promotion services depending on the two packages of services that the User chooses when registering himself as Basic or Premium user (where they have complete insight into the level of service they receive with the Basic or Premium package). The Agency is not responsible for the quality of the profile if the disadvantages are attributed to the poor quality of the multimedia content provided by the User for the purpose of making the profile itself. The promotional profile will be hosted on www.ftsplatform.com for 12 months as of the contract sign date. The prices and contents of the promotional service packages are subject to change at any time, without prior notice and at the discretion of the Agency.

The User refers to the price tagged with the product (package) as well as its content, at the time of order.


Managers / coaches / scouts access and register on the FTS platform as Users for free.


As an additional product, the Agency may offer the publication of promotional articles on www.ftsnews.com, as well as selling space for advertising. Each product has its name, a brief description, availability and price. The prices are expressed in EUR and do not include value added tax as the Agency is not currently obligated.





Purchasing one of the offered packages is done by selecting the chosen package and followed by receiving a 12-month contract via e-mail and an invoice for the fee for the promotional services package. After making the payment at the agreed amount, a promotional profile as well as other services specified in the package in agreement will be completed. Payments are made via a credit transfer.

The Agency will send an invoice to the User electronically at the e-mail address specified during registration or if the contract is signed in person, along with a copy of the contract in the printed version, the service account will be issued upon payment.

If the invoice is delivered to the User electronically, it will be delivered in a format in which it can be printed or saved by the computer, within 48 hours, or, more precisely, after the system records that the payment was made. If the invoice is not delivered within the allocated timeframe, we ask the User to please check their Spam folder or alternatively, to check whether their inbox might be full.

The invoice as well as payment can be issued in another currency (convertible marks) depending on the place of signing the contract (if the contracts are signed in person) which would equal the equivalent of the amount in EUR, at the valid exchange rate of the day of signing the contract.

For all questions and uncertainties regarding the invoice you can contact the Agency at: info@ftsplatform.com.




The service contract is signed by both parties upon payment of the amount for the selected package. If the Service User is a minor, the contract is signed by their parents/guardians, with the Additional Consent for the use of data, photographs and videos of the minors, for promotional purposes. The duration of the contract is 12 months from the date of signing, and if the contracting parties are satisfied with the mutual cooperation, the contract can be extended by making a re-payment for the package, which would result in updating the contents of the existing profile with new contents and retaining the existing one. Parties may terminate the contract at any time with prior written consent

The Agency is entitled to unilaterally terminate the contract in case of serious violations of the rules or non-compliance with the terms and conditions. It is strictly forbidden and therefore it leads to a direct termination of the contract (deleting the profile as well as the inability to access the FTS platform for 12 months), and a court lawsuit would be issued against the User in case of:
