Terms of Use

Last Modified: July 14, 2014

WeVideo, Inc. ("WeVideo," “we” or “our”) offers three different types of account: a free individual account (“Free Account”), a paid Premium individual account (“Premium Account”) and a paid enterprise account for organizations and companies (“Enterprise Account”) (collectively, our  "Services").  These general Terms of Use (“Terms”) govern your access to and use of the Services. You should carefully read these Terms and the applicable agreement before using the Services because by using and/or visiting the Services you agree to be bound by these Terms and the applicable agreement. If you are using the Services on behalf of an organization, you are agreeing to these Terms and the applicable agreement on behalf of that organization and promising that you have the authority to bind that organization to these terms. In that case, “you” and “your” will refer to that organization.

If you do not agree with these Terms, immediately stop using our Services.

We reserve the right to change, update or cease to offer our or any part of our Services or to update these Terms at our discretion. If we do, we will use commercially post notice of the changes at our website.

ACCOUNT SPECIFIC TERMS

Free Accounts

Your Free Account allows you to store up to 5 GB and export up to 15 minutes of 480p video per month, free of charge. However, there are a few restrictions on this. First, we may limit, change, or modify the functionality that we provide to Free Accounts at anytime. Second, we reserve the right to embed a watermark or to add a bumper (including a third-party bumper) in any videos published from your Free Account. You agree not to remove watermarks/bumpers from such videos unless you upgrade to a Premium Account. By embedding a watermark or adding a bumper in such videos, we are not endorsing, and we assume no liability for, the content of such videos or their use. Finally, you agree that we may terminate your Free Account at any time, without notice and, if your Free Account is inactive for ninety (90) days, we may also delete any or all of your media files and published videos without providing additional notice.

Premium Accounts

WeVideo offers you the option to upgrade your Free Account to a Premium Account for a fee. We offer monthly and annual subscriptions and accept payment by credit cards or digital wallets. We will automatically charge your credit card or digital wallet commencing on the date you elect to upgrade to a Premium Account and thereafter automatically on each monthly or yearly renewal thereafter (depending on the subscription tier you select) until you cancel your subscription.  Click on the link on your "Account" page to see the commencement date for your next renewal period. In the event your WeVideo Premium account began on a day not contained in a given month or year, WeVideo will bill you on the last day of such month or year. For example, if your WeVideo Premium account began on January 31st, February 28th is the next time your credit card or digital wallet would be billed. You acknowledge that the amount billed each month or year may vary for reasons that include differing amounts due to promotional offers, differing amounts due to changes in your account, or changes in the amount of applicable sales tax, and you authorize us to charge your credit card for such varying amounts.

If you wish to cancel your Premium Account at anytime, you may do so via your "Account" page. Once you choose to downgrade or cancel your Premium Account will remain active for the remainder of your current subscription period but will not be renewed once that subscription term expires. You will not receive a refund for pre-paid portions of your subscription term. In other words, if you have selected an annual subscription, you Premium Account will remain active for the remainder of that annual term and then be downgraded to a Free Account at the end of the Term. 

If any fee is not paid in a timely manner, or WeVideo is unable to process your transaction using the credit card information provided, WeVideo reserves the right to suspend your Premium Account. If you do not bring your balance current within fifteen (15) days after WeVideo provides you with notification that your Premium Account is in arrears, we will downgrade your WeVideo Premium account to a Free Account and, if your storage space exceeds 5GB, WeVideo reserves the right to delete some or all of your media files as necessary to reduce your storage space to below 5 GB.

Should you elect to upgrade your Premium Account to a larger capacity level, then you will be billed on a pro-rated basis, from the date you upgrade, to the next renewal date on your original subscription. For example, if you begin your monthly-billed WeVideo Premium account on March 10th, your next payment would be due on April 10th. On March 15th, you upgrade your Premium WeVideo account to a larger capacity level and pay the pro-rated new monthly capacity rate for the period lasting to the renewal date of the original subscription. In the example above, this is from March 15th to April 10th. Your next payment would then be due on April 10th, and it will include the fees for both the original subscription and the additional capacity.

WeVideo may change the fees and charges in effect, or add new fees and charges from time to time, for the next billing cycle, but we will give you advance notice of these changes by email. If you want to use a different credit card or if there is a change in your credit card validity or expiration date, you may edit your information by accessing your "Account" page. If your credit card reaches its expiration date, your continued use of the Services constitutes your authorization for us to continue billing that credit card and you remain responsible for any uncollected amounts. It is your responsibility to keep your contact information and payment information current and updated.

If you elect to upgrade to an annual billing plan, fees are refundable within the first 30 days from the date you elect to upgrade to a WeVideo Premium account. Otherwise, WeVideo Premium accounts are prepaid and are non-refundable, except as required by law. WEVIDEO DOES NOT PROVIDE REFUNDS OR CREDITS FOR ANY PARTIAL MONTHS OR YEARS.

Enterprise Accounts

In addition to individual Free Accounts and Premium Accounts,  WeVideo also offers  special accounts for organizations looking to have one account that multiple users can access and use (“Enterprise Accounts”). In addition to the terms and conditions of the “General” sections below, Enterprise Accounts are also subject to the terms and conditions of the WeVideo  Enterprise Agreement.

The Services provide features that allow you to share your User Content with others or to make it public. There are many things that users may do with your User Content (for example, copy it, modify it, re-share it). Please consider carefully what you choose to share or make public. We have no responsibility for that activity.

From time to time, and in our sole discretion, we may offer a “WeVideo Pick” service where you submit your User Content for consideration as be showcased via the Service by WeVideo. In the event your User Content is chosen to be showcased, you grant us the right and permission to display, publish, promote, edit, and distribute your User Content for such purpose. However, you agree to remain solely responsible for your User Content and WeVideo does not become a publisher of your User Content  or assume any liability or responsibility for it.

Repeat Infringers

Your account will be terminated if, at WeVideo's sole discretion, you are determined to be a repeat infringer. Repeat infringers are users who have been the subject of more than one valid takedown request that has not been successfully rebutted.

Other Content

The Services may contain links to third-party websites or resources. WeVideo does not endorse and is not responsible or liable for their availability, accuracy, the related content, products, or services. You are solely responsible for your use of any such websites or resources. Also, if we provide you with any software under an open source license, there may be provisions in those licenses that expressly conflict with these Terms, in which case the open source provisions will apply.

Termination

You can stop using our Services any time. We reserve the right to suspend or end the Services at any time, with or without cause, and with or without notice. For example, we may suspend or terminate your use if you are not complying with these Terms, or use the Services in any way that would cause us legal liability or disrupt others’ use of the Services. If we suspend or terminate your use, we will try to let you know in advance and help you retrieve data, though there may be some cases (for example, repeatedly or flagrantly violating these Terms, a court order, or danger to other users) where we may suspend immediately.

WeVideo is Available “AS-IS”

THE SERVICES AND SOFTWARE ARE PROVIDED “AS IS”, AT YOUR OWN RISK, and “AS AVAILABLE” without warranty of any kind, either express or implied, including but not limited to, fitness for a particular purpose, title, or non-infringement.  Should applicable law not permit the foregoing exclusion of express or implied warranties, then WEVIDEO hereby grants the minimum express or implied warranty required by such applicable law.  No advice or information, whether oral or written, obtained by you from WEVIDEO, its employees, agents, suppliers or any other persons shall create any warranty, representation or guarantee not expressly stated in this section.  Additionally, WeVideo does not make any warranties that the Services will be uninterrupted, secure or error free or that your use of the Services will meet your expectations, or that the Services, or any portion thereof, is correct, accurate, or reliable. WeVideo reserves the right to change any part of the Services at anytime without notice. WeVideo has no responsibility for any harm to your computer system (including, for clarity, any mobile device based systems), loss or corruption of data, or other harm that results from your access to or use of the Services or Software.

Limitation of Liability

TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL WEVIDEO, ITS AFFILIATES, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, SUPPLIERS OR LICENSORS BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, EXEMPLARY OR CONSEQUENTIAL (INCLUDING LOSS OF USE, DATA, BUSINESS, OR PROFITS) DAMAGES, REGARDLESS OF LEGAL THEORY, WHETHER OR NOT WEVIDEO HAS BEEN WARNED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, AND EVEN IF A REMEDY FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE. Because some states do not allow the disclaimer of implied warranties or the exclusion or limitation of certain types of damages, these provisions may not apply to you.  If any portion of this limitation on liability is found to be invalid or unenforceable for any reason, then the aggregate liability of Urgency and its affiliates shall not exceed THE AMOUNTS PAID BY YOU TO WEVIDEO FOR THE PAST THREE MONTHS OF THE SERVICES IN QUESTION. The limitation of liability herein is a fundamental element of the basis of the bargain and reflects a fair allocation of risk. The site would not be provided without such limitations and you agree that the limitations and exclusions of liability, disclaimers and exclusive remedies specified herein will survive even if found to have failed in their essential purpose.

Modifications

We may revise these Terms from time to time and the most current version will always be posted on our website. If a revision, in our sole discretion, is material we will notify you (for example via email to the email address associated with your account). Other changes may be posted to our blog or terms page, so please check those pages regularly. By continuing to access or use the Services after revisions become effective, you agree to be bound by the revised Terms. If you do not agree to the new terms, please stop using the Services.

Miscellaneous Legal Terms

THESE TERMS AND THE USE OF THE SERVICES AND SOFTWARE WILL BE GOVERNED BY CALIFORNIA LAW EXCEPT FOR ITS CONFLICTS OF LAWS PRINCIPLES. ALL CLAIMS ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THESE TERMS OR THE SERVICES OR SOFTWARE MUST BE LITIGATED EXCLUSIVELY IN THE FEDERAL OR STATE COURTS OF SAN FRANCISCO COUNTY, CALIFORNIA, AND BOTH PARTIES CONSENT TO VENUE AND PERSONAL JURISDICTION THERE. These Terms constitute the entire and exclusive agreement between you and WeVideo with respect to the Services, and supersede and replace any other agreements, terms and conditions applicable to the Services. These Terms create no third-party beneficiary rights. WeVideo’s failure to enforce a provision is not a waiver of its right to do so later. If a provision is found unenforceable the remaining provisions of the Agreement will remain in full effect and an enforceable term will be substituted reflecting our intent as closely as possible. You may not assign any of your rights in these Terms, and any such attempt is void, but WeVideo  may assign its rights to any of its affiliates or subsidiaries, or to any successor in interest of any business associated with the Services. WeVideo and you are not legal partners or agents; instead, our relationship is that of independent contractors. Neither WeVideo nor Customer will be liable for inadequate performance to the extent caused by a condition that was beyond the party's reasonable control (for example, natural disaster, act of war or terrorism, riot, labor condition, governmental action, and Internet disturbance). There are no third-party beneficiaries to these Terms. The export and re-export of data via the Services may be controlled by the United States Export Administration Regulations. The Services may not be used in Cuba; Iran; North Korea; Sudan; or Syria or any country that is subject to an embargo by the United States and you are solely responsible for  ensuring that Administrators and End Users do not use the Services in violation of any export restriction or embargo by the United States. In addition, Customer must ensure that the Services are not provided to persons on the Table of Denial Orders, the Entity List, or the List of Specially Designated Nationals.
