This page contains the user-agreement that all users agree to when they upload any video footage o Vu.Zone.
The TL;DR (Too-Long; Didn’t Read) version is:
Vu.Zone provides free video hosting and streaming in exchange for the right to use your public and “ad suitable” content for internal testing during beta, and possibly for advertising. By agreeing to these terms, your content may appear in Vu.Zone’s ads and you consent to mediation and legally binding arbitration in case of any disputes.
Here’s the full agreement, for those who like to read ALL the words.
As of July 3rd, 2023, the following agreement is considered to be in-place and active for all users of Vu.Zone.
Purpose of the Agreement (Beta Version):
The purpose of this Beta Version of the Agreement is to establish the terms and conditions for the usage of the User’s Video Content by Vu.Zone for testing and development purposes. During the Beta phase, Vu.Zone will provide free video streaming and hosting services to the User, in exchange for the User granting Vu.Zone access to their content marked as “Public.” No advertising partners are currently signed on, but when they do, the User’s content will be eligible to be used in short ads that appear on the Vu.Zone website, provided that the User has indicated that their footage features the advertising partner’s product or service in some way.
As this is a Beta Version of the Agreement, please note that there are currently no advertisers on-board and therefore no payouts will occur at this stage. We will notify you when the full version of the Agreement, which includes advertising and payout terms, is rolled out. Until then, your agreement to these terms allows us to use your content for non-commercial, internal testing and development purposes.
Monetization Rights (Beta Version):
Given that this is a Beta Version of the Agreement, the monetization rights are not currently applicable, as we are not yet working with advertisers and are not implementing any payouts. The full version of the Agreement, which we will roll out at a later date, will include detailed provisions on monetization rights, including revenue sharing. Please note that the terms and conditions for the User’s savings account are not currently defined and will be excluded from the Beta Version of the Agreement.
Term and Termination:
The Agreement shall commence on the Effective Date and continue until terminated by any party. Termination may be exercised by any party upon thirty (30) days’ written notice to the other parties. In the event of a violation of the Agreement, a party may be terminated after receiving two (2) email warnings, with the third violation resulting in termination. A violation shall be defined as a breach of any term or condition set forth in this Agreement.
In the event of a dispute arising out of or relating to this Agreement, the parties shall first attempt to resolve the dispute through good faith negotiations within thirty (30) days from the date the dispute is raised. If the dispute remains unresolved after such period, the parties agree to participate in mediation within sixty (60) days from the date the dispute is raised. If mediation is unsuccessful, the parties shall engage in binding arbitration within ninety (90) days from the date the dispute is raised.
Representations and Warranties:
Each party represents and warrants that it has the full power and authority to enter into and perform this Agreement and that the execution, delivery, and performance of this Agreement have been duly authorized by all necessary corporate actions. Each party shall promptly notify the other parties in writing of any material changes to these representations and warranties.
Each party (the “Indemnifying Party”) agrees to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless the other parties (the “Indemnified Parties”) from and against any and all claims, damages, liabilities, costs, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) arising out of or resulting from any breach of the Indemnifying Party’s representations and warranties or any third-party claims related to the use of the Video Content. This indemnification obligation shall survive the termination of this Agreement.
