License to User Content in order to Provide You with the Site and Services
For clarity, you retain all of your ownership rights in any content that you submit, post, create, or transmit to or using the Site or Services, including your WeVideo videos that you create using the Site or Services (collectively your "User Content").
However, by using the Site or Services, you hereby grant to WeVideo a limited license to reproduce, modify, display, perform, distribute, and otherwise use your User Content solely in connection with the Site and Services. This license is non-exclusive, meaning you may use the User Content for your own purposes or let others use your User Content for their purposes. This license is fully-paid and royalty free, meaning WeVideo does not owe you anything else in connection with its use of your User Content. WeVideo may exercise its rights anywhere in the world. Finally, this license is perpetual, meaning that the license lasts for an indefinite period of time. For clarity, this license is necessary so that WeVideo can host your User Content, and so that you can create WeVideo videos from your other User Content, on or through the Site or Services. WeVideo will not use your User Content for any other purpose without your consent.
Use of the Site and Services
You may be required to provide an email address in order to use certain features of the Site or Services. You may use the Site or Services without verifying your email address. However, if you wish to invite others to use the Site or Services, you must verify your email address and accept to receive emails from WeVideo.
You are responsible for ensuring that your username and password for the Site and Services are used correctly and safely, and that you keep them secret and entrust them to no one. You are responsible for all activity on the Site and Services associated with your username and password. You are obligated to notify us immediately should you know, or suspect, someone has, or will have, unauthorized access to your username and password. You can contact us by sending an e-mail to email@example.com.
Should you forget or lose your username or password, you must contact us immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org and follow the instructions we provide. WeVideo reserves the right to refuse continued access to the Services if WeVideo, in it sole discretion, suspects there is a security risk. WeVideo reserves the right to require that you change your username and password at any time.
You agree not to use the Site or Services for any of the following commercial uses unless you obtain WeVideo's prior written approval: the sale of access to the Site or Services; or the sale of advertising, sponsorships, or promotions placed on or within the Site or Services or User Content. Prohibited commercial uses do not include: uploading User Content to WeVideo or maintaining an original channel on WeVideo to promote your business or artistic enterprise; exporting and making legal use of a video you created on WeVideo; or any use that WeVideo expressly authorizes in writing.
You shall be assigned only one (1) user account.
The aggregate file size of all your User Content stored by the Service shall not exceed the limit as specified on the Site and/or associated with your account, which may change from time to time at our sole discretion. You may be given an opportunity to purchase additional storage space. Payments for such purchases are nonrefundable.
Furthermore, we reserve the right to terminate any free user account with no prior notice to you, including the deletion of any User Content or WeVideo videos associated therewith, if the account has been inactive for a six (6) month period.
You are solely responsible for any charges or expenses incurred while accessing and using the Services. WeVideo, in its discretion, may impose charges upon usage of any parts of the Services at any time provided that WeVideo shall provide notice of any such charges before effecting payment against you.
You agree that WeVideo shall have no responsibility or liability for the deletion or failure to store any content maintained or transmitted on or through the Site and Services. User accounts operate on shared resources. Excessive use or abuse of these shared network resources by one user may have a negative impact on all other users. Misuse of network resources in a manner that impairs network performance, including excessive consumption of CPU time, memory, disk space, or session time, is prohibited. You acknowledge that WeVideo has the right, in its sole discretion, to terminate your account, limit the number of transmissions you may send or receive through the Site or Services, or limit the amount of storage space, bandwidth, or other resources you may use.
Do not rely upon the Services as a primary storage space for User Content and your WeVideo videos. You should preserve backup copies of any digital data, information or other materials that you have uploaded. You understand the limited nature of "cloud" based storage security and that loss of data is a possibility. We cannot and do not guarantee the security of any data or content you store or transmit through the Site or Services.
We reserve the right, in our discretion, to embed a WeVideo watermark in any WeVideo videos exported from any WeVideo FREE account. You agree not to remove or disable WeVideo watermarks from such WeVideo videos. By embedding a WeVideo watermark in such WeVideo videos, we are not endorsing, and we assume no liability for, the content of such WeVideo videos or their use.
You agree to obey all applicable laws and regulations and terms and policies in using the Site or Services, and agree that you are responsible for the content of your User Content, communications, and other uses of the Site or Services.
You agree that you will not upload, share, or otherwise distribute any User Content, including text, graphics, images, video, sounds, data, music, or other information, that:
are unlawful, threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, libelous, deceptive, fraudulent, invasive of another's privacy, or impersonate another person;
contain explicit or graphic descriptions, depictions, or accounts of sexual acts (including but not limited to sexual language of a violent or threatening nature directed at another individual or group of individuals), or in any way violate child pornography laws;
victimize, harass, degrade, or intimidate an individual or group of individuals on the basis of religion, gender, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, age, disability or other protected status;
infringe on any patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright, right of publicity, right of privacy, or other proprietary right of WeVideo or any third party;
constitute unauthorized or unsolicited advertising, junk or bulk email (also known as "spamming"), chain letters, any other form of unauthorized solicitation, or any form of lottery or gambling;
contain software viruses or any other computer code, files, or programs that are designed or intended to disrupt, damage, or limit the functioning of any software, hardware, or telecommunications equipment or to damage or obtain unauthorized access to any data or other information of any third party; or
contain measures that could be used to determine the architecture of the Site or Services, or could be used to decompile, disassemble, or reverse engineer the Site or Services.
You may not use your account to breach security of another account or attempt to gain unauthorized access to another network or server. Users who violate systems or network security may incur criminal or civil liability.
Representations & Warranties
WeVideo's Intellectual Property Rights
WeVideo's trademarks may not be used in connection with any product/service that is not provided by WeVideo, in any manner that is likely to cause confusion among customers or users of the Site or Services, tarnishes or dilutes the marks, or disparages or discredits WeVideo.
Others' Intellectual Property Rights
WeVideo deeply respects the third party intellectual property rights that may be implicated in creating a WeVideo video. These intellectual property rights, and your responsibilities with respect to these rights, are outlined below.
In creating a WeVideo Video using WeVideo's proprietary software, you will be able to use User Content such as photos, graphics, animations, text, video and audio. You will be able to either upload your own music, or select musical content available from WeVideo. If you do chose to use such music content in your WeVideo video, that music content may only be used for that purpose only and may not be separated from the WeVideo video and used alone or in any other manner. You can also select video content available from WeVideo. Both the video and musical content from WeVideo have associated intellectual property rights as described further herein.
If you are not the creator of the content that you use, then you must get permission from the creator or the copyright holder to use the content in a WeVideo video.
Copying music without purchasing or obtaining the rights to the music is against the law. If you are unsure whether you have the necessary rights to use music in a WeVideo video, we encourage you to choose musical content available through WeVideo. Similarly, any trademarked or copyrighted material, such as a company logo appearing on the clothing of a performer or on a sign in the background for example, must only be used with the permission of the creator or the copyright holder.
Furthermore, if you want to publish images or voice of someone other than yourself, you must get permission from the individuals portrayed before using the content in a WeVideo video. Do not upload any media that is confidential or proprietary. We assume no liability with respect to the disclosure or use of confidential or proprietary information uploaded to the Site or Services.
You represent, warrant, and covenant that you own or control the necessary rights (including, without limitation, the copyright in media files uploaded by you, either from your own computer or another website/server and the video itself and all music and other copyrightable subject matter reproduced or used in connection with the video and the publicity rights for anyone who is recognizable in the video), in order to make the grant of rights, licenses, and permissions that you have made herein, and that the exercise of such rights, licenses, and permissions by WeVideo shall not violate or infringe the rights of any third party.
All trademarks and/or service marks displayed on the Site or Services are the exclusive property of their respective owners, and may not be used without the owner's permission.

1. a physical or electronic signature of the user;
2. identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access to it was disabled;
3. a statement under penalty of perjury that the user has a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled; and
4. the user's name, address, and telephone number, and a statement that the user consents to the jurisdiction of Federal District Court for the judicial district in which such address is located, or if the user's address is outside of the United States, the Federal District Court for the Northern District of California, and that the user will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of copyright infringement or an agent of such person.
