Terms of use

CMTVPlus Terms of use



CMTVPlus is owned by Chillen Media Inc. This CMTVPlus Terms & Condition Agreement (the “Agreement” or “Terms of Service”) is made between CMTVPlus (“CMTVPlus,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) and you, our customer (“you” or “your”). CMTVPlus provides online video hosting, video on demand, video-sharing and over the top services through our owned-and-operated websites, applications, and embeddable video players (collectively, the “Services”). This Agreement governs your use of our Services.

Acceptance


By creating an account, viewing videos, making a purchase, downloading our software, or otherwise visiting or using our Services, you accept this Agreement and consent to contract with us electronically.
If you are an entity other than a natural person, the person who registers the account or otherwise uses our Services must have the authority to bind the entity. In this context, “you” means both the entity and each person who is authorized to access the account.
We may update this Agreement by posting a revised version on our website. By continuing to use our Services, you accept any revised Agreement.
This Agreement includes our Privacy Policy and the addenda listed in Section 11 below. Please review our Privacy Policy to learn about the information we collect from you, how we use it, and with whom we share it.


Our Services


Service License: Subject to the terms hereof, we grant you access to our Services. This includes the right to:
• Stream videos that you have the right to view;
• Upload, store, and/or live stream videos, subject to your plan;
• Embed our embeddable video player on third-party websites; and
• Use all related functionality that we may provide.
The features available to you will depend on your plan. We may change features from time to time. If you have a paid account, we commit to providing the core video hosting and streaming features of your plan (including the bandwidth and storage capabilities stated at the time of purchase) during your current service period. We may charge for excessive bandwidth use when: (1) plays occur on third-party sites without using our embeddable video player; (2) plays occur within third-party apps (e.g., mobile or connected TV apps);
Transactions: We may offer digital goods for sale. Purchases of CMTVPlus On Demand videos are governed by our Vimeo On Demand Viewer Agreement.
Monetization: We may allow you to sell digital goods or earn money through advertising. Your sales of videos are governed by our Seller Addendum.
Downloadable Software: We may offer applications for devices (“Apps”) directly or through third-party stores. Apps are governed by our App Addendum.
Developer Tools: We may offer application programming interfaces (“APIs”) that allow developers to build applications connected to our Services. Our APIs and related documentation are governed by our API License Addendum.

Organizational Accounts: Corporate, governmental, and other organizational users must publicly display the legal name of their entity on their public account profile
Age Requirements: You must be at least 13 years old to create an account. If you reside in the European Union, you must be at least 16 years old. If you wish to use the Services for a commercial purpose, you must be at least 18 years old. If you are at least the requisite age but are still a minor in your jurisdiction, you must have your parent or legal guardian's permission. Please have that person read this Agreement with you and consent to it before proceeding.
Parents and Guardians: By granting your child permission, you agree to the terms of this Agreement on behalf of your child. You are responsible for monitoring and supervising your child's usage. If your child is either under the applicable age or does not have your permission, please contact us immediately so that we can disable access.
Account Security: You are responsible for all activity that occurs under your account, including unauthorized activity. You must safeguard the confidentiality of your account credentials. If you are using a computer that others have access to, you must log out of your account after each session. If you become aware of unauthorized access to your account, you must change your password and notify us immediately.


Subscription Plans


Plan Types: We offer free (Basic) memberships and paid subscriptions that allow you to upload and share video content. Advertised prices and features may change.

Licenses Granted by You


As between you and CMTVPlus, you own and will retain ownership of all intellectual property rights in and to the content you submit. In order to allow CMTVPlus to host and stream your content, you grant CMTVPlus the permissions set forth below.
6.1 Your Video Content
By submitting a video, you grant CMTVPlus permission to:
• Stream the video to end-users;
• Embed the video on third-party websites;
• Distribute the video via our APIs;
• Make the video available for download;
• Transcode the video (create compressed versions of your video file that are optimized for streaming); and
• Generate stills (i.e., “thumbnails”) from your video to represent it (if you have not selected one).
If you have enabled a video privacy setting or disabled downloading or embedding, we will limit the distribution of your video pursuant to your selection. By enabling access to your video to any third party, you grant each such person permission to stream (and/or download or embed, as applicable) your video. For the purposes of this Section 6.1, your video includes its title, description, tags, and other metadata.
The license period begins when you submit the video to CMTVPlus and ends when you or CMTVPlus delete it; provided that CMTVPlus may retain archival copies: (a) for a limited period of time in case you wish to restore it; (b) when the video is the subject of a takedown notice or other legal claim; or (c) when CMTVPlus in good faith believes that it is legally obligated to do so.
6.2 Account Profile
You grant CMTVPlus permission to use your name, likeness, biography, trademarks, logos, or other identifiers used by you in your account profile for the purpose of displaying such properties to the public or the audiences you have specified. You may revoke the foregoing permission by deleting your account.
6.3 Other Content; Feedback
Content that is not covered by the licenses set forth in Sections 6.1 or 6.2 shall be governed by this Section 6.3 (e.g., text you submit in comments). You grant CMTVPlus a perpetual and irrevocable right and license to copy, transmit, distribute, publicly perform, and display such content through online means in connection with our Services. If you make suggestions to CMTVPlus on improving or products or services, CMTVPlus may use your suggestions without any compensation to you.
6.4 Scope of Licenses
All licenses granted by you in this Section 6: (a) are non-exclusive, worldwide, and royalty-free; (b) include the right and license to copy, use, distribute, publicly perform, and display the licensed work for the purposes stated above; and (c) include all necessary rights and licenses to allow us to exercise our rights and perform our obligations. By granting these licenses, you waive any so-called “moral rights” that you may have. Nothing in this Agreement shall be deemed a license “condition” applicable to CMTVPlus; rather, any breach of a term by CMTVPlus hereof shall give rise to, at most, a claim for breach of contract only. All licenses granted herein are in addition to any other licenses that you may grant (e.g., a Creative Commons license).
