Develop, Improve and Update the Service
Bizvids Pro is constantly changing and improving the Service. As part of this continual evolution, we may make modifications or changes (to all or part of the Service) such as adding or removing features and functionalities, offering new digital content or services or discontinuing old ones. We may also need to alter or discontinue the Service, or any part of it, in order to make performance or security improvements, make changes to comply with law, or prevent illegal activities on or abuse of our systems. These changes may affect all users, some users or even an individual user. When the Service requires or includes downloadable software (such as the Bizvids Pro IOS/Android application), that software may update automatically on your device once a new version or feature is available, subject to your device settings. If we make material changes that negatively impact your use of the Service, we’ll provide you with reasonable advance notice, except in urgent situations such as preventing abuse, responding to legal requirements, or addressing security and operability issues.
Your Content and Conduct
If you have a Bizvids Pro channel, you may be able to upload Content to the Service. You may use your Content to promote your business or artistic enterprise. If you choose to upload Content, you must not submit to the Service any Content that does not comply with this Agreement or the law. For example, the Content you submit must not include third-party intellectual property (such as copyrighted material) unless you have permission from that party or are otherwise legally entitled to do so. You are legally responsible for the Content you submit to the Service. We may use automated systems that analyze your content to help detect infringement and abuse, such as spam, malware, and illegal content.
Rights you Grant
You retain ownership rights of your Content. However, we do require you to grant certain rights to Bizvids Pro and other users of the Service, as described below.
License to Bizvids Pro
By providing Content to the Service, you grant to Bizvids Pro a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, sublicensable and transferable license to use that Content (including to reproduce, distribute, prepare derivative works, display and perform it) in connection with the Service and Bizvids pro’s (and its successors’ and Affiliates’) business, including for the purpose of promoting and redistributing part or all of the Service.
License to Other Users
You also grant each other user of the Service a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free license to access your Content through the Service, and to use that Content, including to reproduce, distribute, prepare derivative works, display, and perform it, only as enabled by a feature of the Service (such as video playback or embeds). For clarity, this license does not grant any rights or permissions for a user to make use of your Content independent of the Service.
Duration of License
The licenses granted by you continue for a commercially reasonable period of time after you remove or delete your Content from the Service. You understand and agree, however, that Bizvids Pro may retain, but not display, distribute, or perform, server copies of your videos that have been removed or deleted.
Right to Monetize
You grant to Bizvids Pro the right to monetize your Content on the Service (and such monetization may include displaying ads on or within Content or charging users a fee for access). This Agreement does not entitle you to any payments.
Removing Your Content
You may remove your content from the Service at any time. You must remove your Content if you no longer have the rights required by these terms.
Removal of Content By Bizvids Pro
If any of your Content (1) is in breach of this Agreement or (2) may cause harm to Bizvids Pro, our users, or third parties, we reserve the right to remove or take down some or all of such Content in our discretion. We will notify you with the reason for our action unless we reasonably believe that to do so: (a) would breach the law or the direction of a legal enforcement authority or would otherwise risk legal liability for Bizvids Pro or our Affiliates; (b) would compromise an investigation or the integrity or operation of the Service; or (c) would cause harm to any user, other third party, Bizvids Pro or our Affiliates.
Account Suspension & Termination
Terminations by You
You may stop using the Service at any time.
Terminations and Suspensions by Bizvids Pro
Bizvids Pro reserves the right to suspend or terminate your account or your access to all or part of the Service if (a) you materially or repeatedly breach this Agreement; (b) we are required to do so to comply with a legal requirement or a court order; or (c) we reasonably believe that there has been conduct that creates (or could create) liability or harm to any user, other third party, Bizvids Pro or our Affiliates.
Notice for Termination or Suspension
We will notify you with the reason for termination or suspension by Bizvids Pro unless we reasonably believe that to do so: (a) would violate the law or the direction of a legal enforcement authority; (b) would compromise an investigation; (c) would compromise the integrity, operation or security of the Service; or (d) would cause harm to any user, other third party, Bizvids Pro or our Affiliates.
Effect of Account Suspension or Termination
If your Bizvids Pro is terminated or your access to the Service is restricted, you may continue using certain aspects of the Service (such as viewing only) without an account, and this Agreement will continue to apply to such use. If you believe that the termination or suspension has been made in error, you can appeal by using our contact form.
About Software in the Service
When the Service requires or includes downloadable software (such as the Bizvids Pro for Android/IOS), unless that software is governed by additional terms which provide a license, Bizvids Pro gives you a personal, worldwide, royalty-free, non-assignable and non-exclusive license to use the software provided to you by Bizvids Pro as part of the Service. This license is for the sole purpose of enabling you to use and enjoy the benefit of the Service as provided by Bizvids Pro, in the manner permitted by this Agreement. You are not allowed to copy, modify, distribute, sell, or lease any part of the software, or to reverse-engineer or attempt to extract the source code of that software, unless laws prohibit these restrictions or you have Bizvids Pro’s written permission.
Some software used in our Service may be offered under an open source license that we make available to you. There may be provisions in an open source license that expressly override some of these terms, so please be sure to read those licenses.
