2. Our Services

Service License: Subject to the terms hereof, we grant you access to our Services. This includes permission to:
Stream videos so long as you have paid the required fee(s) and/or are authorized by us to view such videos;      
Upload, store, and/or live stream videos, subject to your subscription and/or fee(s) plan;      
Embed our embeddable video player on third-party websites. We are not liable for any form of damages/restitution under any theory for the use of our video player and you fully indemnify us against any such liability if you choose to use such player for any purpose; and      
Use all related functionality that we may provide.

Features:  The features available to you will depend on your subscription/fee(s) plan. We may change features from time to time. If you have a paid account, we will make a best effort 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.

Unlimited Bandwidth Fair Use Policy: Generally, we do not limit or impose additional fees for bandwidth consumption on Self-Serve accounts (i.e. the data used in order to deliver your videos to viewers). However, this policy is subject to fair use: If your aggregate bandwidth usage (across all accounts you control) is higher than 99% of Self-Serve users on our platform in any calendar month, we may, in our discretion, charge fees for excessive usage, require you to upgrade to a more suitable plan, or terminate your account(s) upon three (3) days advance written notice.
For more information on bandwidth and our fair use policy, please see our  Bandwidth on Artrela article.

We cannot guarantee that you will be able to use the most recent version of the App on your device. Apps offered through third-party stores are subject to our  Third-Party Service Addendum.

4. Subscription Plans

Plan Types: We offer free (Basic) memberships and paid subscriptions that allow you to upload and share video content. You may purchase a Self-Serve plan (you sign up and pay online) or an Enterprise plan (you work with a sales representative and execute an individualized agreement). Advertised prices and features may change.

Basic (Free) Accounts: Basic (free) members may not submit videos that they did not create or play a material part in creating.

Fees:  You must pay all fees (plus any taxes) during your subscription period and any renewal period(s). Our fees may include a fixed monthly or annual fee plus variable fees for transactions or usage.

Free Trials and Discounts: We may offer free-trial or discounted subscriptions. When a free-trial period ends, your paid subscription begins (unless you have cancelled) and you must pay the full monthly or annual fee. If we provide a discount for the first subscription period, you must pay the discounted fee; in any renewal, you must pay the full fee.

Refund Policy: Subject to the terms hereof, Self-Serve subscribers who purchase plans directly from Artrela may cancel and receive a full refund of their initial purchase within thirty (30) days after purchasing an annual plan and five (5) days after purchasing a monthly plan. Our refund policy does not apply to:        

In-app purchases;

Unused storage, bandwidth, and other usage limits do not roll over.

How to Decline Renewal: Self-Serve subscribers may opt out of automatic renewal by changing their account settings. Enterprise plan customers may opt out according to the  Enterprise Terms. Any opt-out or notice of non-renewal will not affect the current subscription period. Artrela may decline renewals. Artrela may require that a notice of non-renewal or action to effect a non-renewal must be acknowledged by Artrela to be effective.

Lapse Policy: When a subscription ends, the account will, at Artrelas option, revert to Basic (free) account status or will be deleted. Any content in the account may be deleted to comply with the limitations of the new account status. You are responsible for archiving your content. Artrela shall not be responsible for the loss of any content, regardless of circumstances. We may publish additional guidelines regarding the treatment of lapsed subscriptions. These guidelines describe current practices only and shall not require Artrela to provide any level of post-subscription account status.

In-App Purchase: We may allow you to purchase subscriptions within Apps. When you make such in-app purchases, you will be billed by the app platform, not us. To turn off automatic renewal for subscriptions, access your platforms account settings (not Artrelas). Our refund policy does not apply to in-app purchases. Any billing inquiries must be directed to the app platform.

Resale:  You may not sell, resell, rent, lease, or distribute any plan or any other aspect of our Services to any third-party unless authorized, in advance, by us in writing. We may suspend or terminate accounts sold via authorized resellers for non-payment to the reseller or any violation of the restrictions set forth in this Agreement and in our sole discretion.

6. Licenses Granted by You

As between you and Artrela, you own and will retain ownership of all intellectual property rights in and to the content you submit. In order to allow Artrela to host and stream your content, you grant Artrela the permissions set forth below.

6.1 Your Video Content

By submitting a video, you grant Artrela 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;

Generate stills (i.e., thumbnails) from your video to represent it (if you have not selected one);        
Automatically generate and display closed captions or subtitles from your video; and Alter or enhance your video as directed by you.

If you have enabled a video privacy setting or disabled downloading or embedding, we will limit 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 Artrela and ends when you or Artrela delete it; provided that Artrela 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 Artrela in good faith believes that it is legally obligated to do so. You waive all claims in the event Artrela inadvertently retains a copy of your content regardless of length of time such content is retained and regardless of reason for such retention.

6.2 Account Profile

You grant Artrela 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. Artrela shall have the right to identify public profiles in its marketing and investor materials.

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 Artrela 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 Artrela on improving our products or services, Artrela 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 Artrela; rather, any breach of a term by Artrela 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).

7. Your Obligations

7.1 Representations and Warranties

For each piece of content that you submit to or through Artrela, you represent and warrant that:        
You have the right to submit the content to Artrela and grant the licenses herein;●         Artrela will not need to obtain licenses from any third-party or pay royalties to any third-party with respect to the streaming or other permitted distribution of the content;        
You have obtained appropriate releases (if necessary) from all persons who appear in the content;        
The content does not, and will not, infringe any third-party's rights, including intellectual property rights, rights of publicity, moral rights, and privacy rights; and●         The content complies with this Agreement and all applicable laws.

7.2 Indemnification

You will indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Artrela and its subsidiaries, parents, and affiliates, and their and our respective directors, officers, employees, and agents, from and against all third-party complaints, demands, claims, damages, losses, costs, liabilities, and expenses, including attorneys fees, arising from or relating to: (a) the content you submit to or through the Services; and (b) allegations of actions or omissions by you that (regardless if proven) would constitute a breach of this Agreement. Any circumstance requiring a judgement by us (e.g., appropriateness of content), will be decided in our sole discretion and you, by agreeing to this Terms of Service, stipulate that you will abide by such decision(s) without adversarial action of any type.

8. Term and Termination

This Agreement begins when you first use our Services and continues so long as you use our Service or have an account with us, whichever is longer. Paid accounts will continue for the subscription period and will renew in accordance with Section 4 above. With respect to users who do not have a subscription plan (i.e., free users), (a) Artrela may terminate this Agreement at any time by providing thirty (30) days written notice, and (b) applicable users may terminate at any time by deleting their accounts.

If you breach this Agreement, Artrela may, at its option: (a) terminate this Agreement immediately, with or without advance written notice; (b) suspend, delete, or limit access to your account (and other accounts you control) or any content within it; and (c) to the extent permitted by applicable law, retain any amounts payable to you (which you agree is not a forfeiture, confiscation or unconscionable act and is, in fact, a fair compensation for our additional administrative work). If Artrela deletes your account for breach, you may not re-register.

In the event of any termination or expiration, the following sections will survive: Section 6.3 (Other Content; Feedback), Section 7.2 (Indemnification), Section 9 (Disclaimers), Section 10 (Limitation of Liability), Section 11 (Disputes, Arbitration, and Choice of Law), and Section 12 (General Provisions).

10. Limitation of Liability


11. Disputes, Arbitration, and Choice of Law

If you are dissatisfied with our Services for any reason, please  contact us  first so that we can try to resolve your concerns without the need for outside assistance.

11.1 Choice of Law

Any disputes relating to this Agreement or your use of our Services will be governed by the laws of Texas and the United States of America (with respect to matters subject to federal jurisdiction such as copyright), without regard to principles of conflicts of law. The arbitration agreement set forth in Section 11.3 will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act.

11.2 Choice of Venue for Litigation; Jury Trial Waiver

Except for matters that must be arbitrated (as set forth below), you and Artrela agree that any action relating to this Agreement or your use of our Services must be commenced in either the Commercial Division of the Texas State Supreme Court for Dallas County or the United States Federal Court for Texas; you consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of those courts. IN ANY SUCH ACTION, ARTRELA AND YOU IRREVOCABLY WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY.

11.3 Arbitration of Privacy Claims; Class Action Waiver

The exclusive means of resolving any Covered Privacy Claim (defined below) shall be BINDING ARBITRATION. The arbitration will be administered by JAMS under the  JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules & Procedures, as modified by our Arbitration Procedures. If you are a consumer, as defined by JAMS in its Consumer Minimum Standards , you may request that the arbitration hearing be conducted in the area in which you reside. Otherwise, the hearing (if any) shall take place in Dallas County, Texas, United States of America. EACH PARTY WAIVES ITS RIGHT TO GO TO COURT, TO A TRIAL BY JURY, AND TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION, CLASS ARBITRATION, OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING WITH RESPECT TO ANY COVERED PRIVACY CLAIM.

Overview: Arbitration provides a private dispute resolution process that is usually more streamlined and less formal than litigation. In an arbitration, your rights will be determined by a neutral third-party called an arbitrator, and not a judge or jury. Both you and Artrela are entitled to fundamentally fair proceedings at every stage of the arbitration, including the hearing. The arbitrator will decide all issues relating to the dispute, including the question of arbitrability, and can grant any relief that a court could grant. Decisions by the arbitrator are enforceable in court and may be overturned by a court only for very limited reasons. For details on the arbitration process, see our Arbitration Procedures.

Definitions: A Covered Privacy Claim means any dispute or claim arising out of or relating to (a) Artrelas collection, use, storage, analysis, or transfer of your Personal Information; (b) an alleged breach of our Privacy Policy ; (c) an alleged data breach or unauthorized disclosure of data or content; or (d) an allegation that Artrela failed to comply with any privacy or data security right or obligation.

Personal Information means any information about you, including your registration information (e.g., email address), payment information, location information, device information, biometric identifiers or information, IP address, and your activities (including viewing and search history), but does not include content that you upload (except to the extent the content contains personal information about you).

Small Claims Court Exception: Notwithstanding the above, each party has the right to bring an individual Covered Privacy Claim against the other in a small claims court of competent jurisdiction pursuant to Rule 1 of JAMS Minimum Consumer Standards. If one party files an arbitration that could be litigated in such a small claims court, the responding party may request that the dispute proceed in small claims court. If the responding party requests to proceed in small claims court before the appointment of the arbitrator, the arbitration shall be administratively closed. If requested after the appointment of the arbitrator, the arbitrator shall administratively close the arbitration so long as the proceedings are at an early stage and no hearing has occurred.

12. General Provisions

Reservation of Rights, Severability: Artrela reserves all rights not expressly granted herein. Artrelas rights and remedies are cumulative. No failure or delay by Artrela in exercising any right will waive any further exercise of that right. If any term of this Agreement is found invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, that term will be limited or severed.

Force Majeure: Artrela will not be liable for any delay or failure caused by (a) acts of God/natural disasters (including hurricanes and earthquakes); (b) disease, epidemic, or pandemic; (c) terrorist attack, civil war, civil commotion or riots, armed conflict, sanctions or embargoes; (d) nuclear, chemical, or biological contamination; (e) collapse of buildings, fire, explosion, or accident; (f) labor or trade strikes; (g) interruption, loss, or malfunction of a utility, transportation, or telecommunications service; (h) any order by a government or public authority, including a quarantine, travel restriction, or other prohibition; or (i) any other circumstance not within Artrelas reasonable control, whether or not foreseeable (each a force majeure event). In the event of a force majeure event, Artrela shall be relieved from performance of the contractual obligation until the event passes or no longer prevents performance.

Relationship: You and Artrela are independent contractors of one another; neither party is an agent, partner, or joint venturer of the other. This Agreement binds the parties and their successors, personal representatives, and permitted assigns. You may not assign this Agreement to any person whose account has been terminated by Artrela or who is prohibited from registering; any such assignment will be void. Except as expressly stated herein, nothing in this Agreement confers any right on any third party.

Entire Agreement: This Agreement constitutes the entire understanding of the parties and supersedes all prior understandings regarding the subject matter hereof and may not be modified except in accordance with Section 1 or in a document executed by authorized representatives of Artrela. If you have a signed agreement with Artrela, any conflicting term of that agreement will prevail over the terms hereof, but only as to the subject matter of that agreement.

The English version of this Agreement shall control. For convenience, we may provide translated versions of this Agreement.
