VidSnippets™ Incorporated (“VidSnippets”) has developed and owns all rights in the proprietary computer program that you will be given access to (the “Platform”). This Platform License Agreement (this “Agreement”) sets forth the terms under which you may access and use the Platform. In order to be set up, receive the log in information and commence using the platform and tools, you must indicate your agreement to all of the terms set forth herein.
YOU AGREE AS FOLLOWS:
1. Nature of the Agreement
By agreeing to the terms of VidSnippets’ Platform License Agreement set forth herein, customers can receive a limited license (described below) to use the Platform. This Agreement is a legal agreement made between you, as an individual, or as an authorized representative of a company or organization, that is interested in licensing the Platform (“Licensee”) and VidSnippets. This Agreement contains the terms and conditions that must be complied with by you and by all other Licensee representatives under VidSnippets’ Platform License Agreement. As used herein, “you” refers to Licensee and to all employees, agents and representatives of Licensee that use the Platform.
The term of this Agreement and the license rights granted hereunder will commence upon your acceptance and first use of the Platform. It will continue for up to 31 days (for monthly subscriptions) or for 365 days (for annual subscriptions). Unless terminated, the subscription will automatically renew at the fee rate then in effect. You may terminate the license and this Agreement at any time by providing 30 days prior notice in writing. At the termination date you agree to cease all use of the Platform and delete all your Platform files and copies of Documentation (defined below) from your system.
Refunds may be obtained if the subscription is terminated within the first 15 days of the subscription period. After the first 15 days, no refund will be provided.
This license will also terminate automatically upon your failure to comply with any of the terms of this Agreement, the VidSnippets Master Terms and Conditions, and the VidSnippets Platform Usage Guidelines. Upon termination, you agree to promptly destroy all printed copies and delete all electronic copies of any Documentation, and to ensure that no copies of the Platform or of any Platform screens, data, or other content remain archived or otherwise stored on your system. Any video content stored on the VidSnippets servers and/or platform may be deleted by our staff after termination.
VIDSNIPPETS WILL DISABLE ACCESS TO THE PLATFORM UPON EXPIRATION OF THE EVALUATION PERIOD AND/OR THE SUBSCRIPTION PERIOD. THE ONLY WAY TO CONTINUE USE OF THE PLATFORM IS BY PAYING TO LICENSE THE PLATFORM FROM VIDSNIPPETS PURSUANT TO SECTION 4 BELOW.
3. License Grant
VidSnippets hereby grants to you a limited, revocable, nonexclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable license to use the Platform, together with any and all written and electronic user’s guides, specifications and other documentation related thereto (the “Documentation”). Except as specified in the subscription pricing package terms, nothing in this Agreement should be construed as granting you any right to receive any maintenance services, updates, or upgrades from VidSnippets; provided, however, that in the event VidSnippets decides, in its sole discretion, to provide you with any updates or upgrades to the Platform, such updates and upgrades will be deemed to be included in the definition of “Platform” for purposes of this Agreement.
4. Purchase of Platform License
At any time during the Evaluation Period, you can notify VidSnippets in writing that you want to purchase a full (i.e., non-evaluation) license to the Platform. Upon completion of the registration and account creation processes, VidSnippets will provide you with such materials (including, to the extent necessary, license agreements, non-evaluation copies of the Platform, and installation instructions and/or assistance) necessary to begin using the Platform. Any requests for enhancement or modification of the current functionality will be considered and to the extent possible will be accommodated with our ongoing technology development and enhancement plans.
If you wish to lease a customized dedicated “Black Box” instance of our platform, to host on your own platform, this may be an option provided the purchaser agrees to the additional time and development fees necessary for such. VidSnippets’ pricing is available upon request.
5. Technical Support
VidSnippets will provide you with limited technical support, via email, during VidSnippets’ regular business hours, which are from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm Atlantic Time, Monday through Friday (excluding holidays), in order to respond to customer inquiries concerning use of the Platform. VidSnippets will exercise reasonable efforts to respond within the number of business days specified in the selected subscription package after receipt to those email support inquiries that are submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org.
