THESE TERMS CREATE A BINDING LEGAL CONTRACT BETWEEN YOU AND Clipster B.V. ("Clipster"). BY USING THE SERVICE - WHETHER YOU ARE A CASUAL VISITOR TO THE SERVICE BROWSING THE PAGES CREATED BY OTHERS OR OTHER ENTITY USING THE SERVICE TO PROMOTE YOURSELF OR YOUR BUSINESS - YOU REPRESENT AND WARRANT THAT YOU HAVE READ, UNDERSTOOD, AND AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS. IF YOU DO NOT ACCEPT THESE TERMS, YOU MUST NOT USE - AND ARE NOT AUTHORIZED TO USE - ALL OR ANY PORTION OF THE SERVICE.
The Service is offered by Clipster to enable you to market yourself and your business to your fans, people who should be your fans, and potentially all other users of the Internet. We give you significant control over how you can do this. The Service is highly customizable and evolving, and you can control how much or how little information and material you want to share with the world. You can make your videos available for free to a limited amount of five. You can make certain content and information generally available to all users of the Service and limit other content and information to only select partners you designate. You decide. We are here to help you.
If you are using or opening an account on the Service on behalf of a company, entity or organization (each a "Subscribing Entity"), then you represent and warrant that you: (i) are an authorized representative of that Subscribing Entity with the authority to bind such entity to these Terms and (ii) agree to be bound by these Terms on behalf of such Subscribing Entity.
1. Changes to these Terms.
The Website and portions of the Service are owned and operated by Clipster. Clipster reserves the right to revise these Terms in its sole discretion at any time and without prior notice to you other than by posting the revised Terms on the Website.

It is incumbent upon you to visit this page periodically to ensure your continued acceptance of these Terms. Your continued use of the Service after a revised version of these Terms has been posted by Clipster to the Website constitutes your binding acceptance of such revision and the revised Terms. Notwithstanding the preceding sentences of this Section 1.1, no revisions to these Terms will apply to any dispute between you and Clipster that arose prior to the date of such revision.
2. Evolving Nature of Service.
The Service is continually under development and changes to the Service may be made at any time.

5. MATERIALS SUBMITTED TO THE SERVICE; LICENSE GRANT FROM YOU TO CLIPSTER
1. User Content.
This section governs any material that you upload or transmit to or through the Service or to us through email outside of a Forum, including, without limitation, musical works, sound recordings, literary works, photographs, audiovisual works, artwork, comments, and messages (collectively, "User Content"). For the avoidance of doubt, this includes User Content that may be uploaded to and/or accessed from third-party sites that may host all or any portion of your User Content, such as, by way of example and not limitation YouTube and Vimeo (each a "Hosting Service" and, collectively, the "Hosting Services"). You are solely responsible for all User Content you submit to or through the Service. You agree, represent, and warrant that any User Content you upload or transmit to or through the Service or to us through email is truthful, accurate, not misleading, and offered in good faith, and that you have all rights, licenses, permissions, and authorizations necessary to upload and transmit the User Content to and through the Service and grant the rights to the User Content as set forth in these Terms. You must not upload or transmit any User Content to or through the Service or to us through email that you consider to be confidential or proprietary or the rights to which have not been cleared by you. Except as otherwise expressly agreed to in a separate writing signed by you and an authorized representative of Clipster, or as otherwise specified in these Terms, any User Content uploaded or transmitted to or through the Service or to us via email will be considered non-confidential and non-proprietary, and treated as such by Clipster, and may be used by Clipster for any purpose or disclosed by Clipster to any third party with or without notice to you and without any liability to Clipster.
2. Retention of Your Intellectual Property Rights.
3. License Grants.
4. Reserved User Content.
The Service may from time to time permit you to designate certain User Content for limited release and distribution. For example, you may wish to upload certain (music) videos to or through the Service that you want to be made available only to certain business partners for a limited time period before the content is made generally available to the public (e.g., an exclusive sneak preview or limited release window). Similarly, you may wish to provide certain content that is only available to promotional partners who are sponsoring a tour or working with you to promote a particular product or service. To the extent the functionality of the Service permits a user to distinguish between different types of User Content, the Service will permit you to designate such limited-use content ("Reserved User Content") through a specially designated tab in your account page on the Service (the "Promotional Tab"). Only certain User Content can be designated as Reserved User Content, and any content improperly designated as Reserved User Content will be treated as User Content. Content that may not be designated as Reserved User Content will be identified through the Service. By way of example and not limitation, Reserved User Content may not include (a) general biographical information, (b) tour date information, and (c) discography information. Reserved User Content may include (x) music videos and (y) sound recordings. The grant of rights in Section 5.3 shall apply to all Reserved User Content; provided, however, that the third parties designated in a Promotional Tab to have access to Reserved User Content will be the only parties granted access to your Reserved User Content for the duration of the time period set by you in the Promotional Tab. The limitations set forth in this Section 5.4 may be subject to the terms of any Hosting Services on which any Reserved User Content may be uploaded, reproduced, or hosted , and Clipster makes no representations and warranties with respect to any limitations that may be imposed on any Reserved User Content uploaded by you to a Hosting Service.
5. Limitations on Grant of Rights to Clipster.
Notwithstanding the grant of rights in Section 5.3, nothing contained in these Terms grants Clipster a right or license to: (a) sell phonorecords (e.g., CDs, LPs, DVDs, Blue Rays or digital downloads) of User Content unless you specifically authorize Clipster to sell phonorecords through an election made through your account, to the extent Clipster provides the functionality for the sale of content through the Service; (b) authorize third parties to incorporate any User Content (including Reserved User Content) in any audio-only or audiovisual commercials, television programs, movies or any similar audiovisual works; or (c) Use User Content to promote any other good or service other than you, your User Content, Clipster or the Service. Nothing herein shall preclude Clipster from linking to any third party sites through which sales of phonorecords, audiovisual works, and other merchandise embodying your sound or video recordings, name, voice, image, etc. may be facilitated (e.g., Apple's iTunes).
6. Waiver of Rights.
By uploading User Content to or through the Service you waive any rights to prior inspection or approval of any marketing or promotional materials related to such User Content (excluding only Reserved User Content). You further waive any and all rights of privacy, publicity, or any other rights of a similar nature in connection with your User Content, or any portion thereof, including, without limitation, your name, likeness, voice, image, and persona or any advertising or publicity relating thereto. To the extent any moral rights are not transferable or assignable, you hereby waive and agree never to assert any and all moral rights, or to support, maintain or permit any action based on any moral rights that you may have in or with respect to any User Content you upload to or through the Service, during the term of these Terms. You expressly release Clipster and all of Clipster's agents, partners, subsidiaries, affiliates, licensees, successors, and assigns from any and all claims, demands, liabilities, or causes of action, whether now known or unknown, for defamation, copyright infringement, violation of moral rights, and invasion of the rights to privacy, publicity, or personality or any similar matter, or based upon or relating to the Use of your User Content. Notwithstanding the preceding sentences of this Section 5.6, you should let us know immediately if you object to any uses of your User Content on or through the Service or in the promotion of the Service. We will consider all reasonable requests to terminate any Use that you find objectionable, but we shall have no liability to you for any Use authorized in these Terms.
7. Specific Rules for Musical Works.
If you are a composer or author of a musical work and have affiliated with a PRO, then you must notify your PRO of the royalty free license granted by you to Clipster through these Terms. Each PRO has different rules with respect to providing notification for a direct license. You are solely responsible for ensuring your compliance with the relevant PRO's reporting obligations. If you have assigned your rights to a music publisher, then you must obtain the consent of such music publisher to grant the royalty free license set forth in these Terms or have such music publisher enter into these Terms with Clipster. Just because you authored a video work doesn't mean you have the right to grant Clipster the licenses contained in these Terms.
8. Confirmation of Rights.
Clipster reserves the right to demand confirmation from you in writing of all authorizations, licenses, permissions, and consents obtained by you (if any) with respect to any third-party materials embodied in User Content you upload to or transmit through the Service. If you fail to provide us with such confirmation upon request, we reserve the right to remove or deny access to any or all of your User Content available on or through the Service and to suspend or terminate your account with Clipster. We will have no liability to you for any actions taken by us pursuant to this Section 5.9
9. Rights for Third Party Sites; Through-to-the-Audience Rights.
Just to be clear, the rights granted by you in these Terms include the right of Clipster to Use User Content you upload or submit to or through the Service through the Site and Third Party Sites, such as Facebook, and all of the rights granted herein by you are provided on a through-to-the-audience basis, meaning the owners or operators of such Third Party Sites will not have any separate liability to you or any other third party (e.g., a PRO) for User Content uploaded to, transmitted or publicly performed through the Service and made available to o through such Third Party Sites.
10. Portability of User Content.
Once you upload or transmit User Content on or through the Service, you may be entitled to make your User Content available through Third Party Sites. We may from time to time offer Applications (including widgets) that you may place on Third Party Sites. We may or may not permit you to limit the amount of your User Content available through such Applications, although Reserved User Content would not be made available through Applications.
11. Representations and Warranties with Respect to User Content.
By uploading or transmitting User Content to or through the Service, you hereby represent and warrant to Clipster that (a) you have obtained all necessary rights, permissions, authorizations, licenses, and clearances to grant the licenses and rights set forth in these Terms with respect to such User Content and (b) the Use of such User Content in a manner consistent with these Terms will not (i) infringe the rights of any third party, including copyright, trademark, patent and other intellectual property rights or other protected rights, such as the rights of privacy or publicity, or (ii) require Clipster or any Third Party Site on or through which the Service is made available to pay any fees of any kind to any third party, including, but not limited to, any sound recording copyright owner, any musical work copyright owner, any PRO (video work, or musical work), any union, guild, non-featured vocalist or musician, engineer, producer, co-author, record royalty participant or any other person or entity, or any use or re-use fees for the Use of any sound recording or audiovisual work. WARNING: YOU MAY NOT UPLOAD TO OR THROUGH THE SERVICE, WHETHER IN WHOLE OR IN PART, ANY USER CONTENT FOR WHICH YOU DO NOT OWN, CONTROL OR HAVE EXPRESS WRITTEN AUTHORIZATION TO USE. IF YOU UPLOAD CONTENT OWNED BY A THIRD PARTY WITHOUT AUTHORIZATION OR AS OTHERWISE PERMITTED BY LAW, THEN YOU MAY BE SUBJECT TO LIABILITY TO THE THIRD PARTY OWNERS OF SUCH CONTENT AS WELL AS TO CLIPSTER. CLIPSTER MAY ASSIST THIRD PARTIES IN ENFORCING THEIR RIGHTS, WITHOUT ANY LIABILITY TO YOU. CLIPSTER MAY TERMINATE YOUR RIGHT TO USE THE SERVICE FOR A VIOLATION OF THIS SECTION.
12. Other Inventions and Concepts.

1. Log In Credentials.
In order to use the Service you will have to register and log in using your Facebook credentials although we reserve the right to require or permit a separate, non-Facebook user name and password in our sole discretion. The Service permits multiple users to have access to the same account profile on the Service (e.g., an artist and the artist's manager may both be granted access to the artist's user profile). You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your Facebook credentials in order to use the Service, and are fully responsible for all activities that occur through the use of your credentials. You agree to notify Clipster immediately of any unauthorized use of your Facebook credentials or any other breach of security with respect to your account. You should also immediately notify Facebook of any unauthorized use of your credentials. Clipster will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from unauthorized use of your credentials prior to you notifying Clipster of such unauthorized use or loss of your credentials, including any changes made to the authorizations on your Promotional Tab, if any. Separate log in credentials may be required for Third Party Sites and Hosting Services by the owners and/or operators of such sites or services.
2. Accuracy of Information.
You agree to provide true, accurate, current, and complete information about yourself as requested in any registration forms required by Clipster.

YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT CLIPSTER WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO OFFER THE SERVICE TO YOU ON AN ECONOMICALLY FEASIBLE BASIS WITHOUT THESE LIMITATIONS.
15. TERM AND TERMINATION
These Terms, as amended, will be effective commencing with your first use or registration of the Service and will remain in full force and effect throughout your use of the Service.
2. Termination by Clipster.
Clipster may terminate your use of the Service or any of our features or services at any time and for any reason, with or without notice, for conduct violating these Terms or upon Clipster's sole determination. You hereby agree to Clipster's broad right of termination. Upon any such termination, you must destroy all materials obtained from the Service and all copies thereof, including any copies downloaded by you for your personal, noncommercial use. You agree that if your use of the Service is terminated pursuant to these Terms, you will not attempt to use the Service under any name, real or assumed, and further agree that if you violate this restriction after being terminated, you will indemnify and hold us harmless from any and all liability that we may incur therefor. Upon Clipster's termination of your use of the Service, Clipster may delete any of your User Materials available on or through the Service and terminate your access to your User Materials if those materials remain on the Service, without any liability to you.
3. Termination by You.
3.1. You are free to terminate your use of the Service at any time. You can simply choose to stop visiting or using any aspect of the Service. If you wish to terminate your account on the Service, you may do so by sending an e-mail to email@example.com or using any other account termination functionality that may be offered through the Service. For example, we may develop a functionality that permits you to click on a termination button on your profile page on the Website. The deletion of your account will not, however, remove all of your User Materials from the Service unless you also make a specific election to remove your User Materials from the Service. Although we give you the option to delete all of your User Materials from the Service, you are free to keep previously uploaded or posted User Materials on the Service (including Reserved User Content) for an unlimited period of time, subject to a change to these Terms. If you are a band, keeping your User Content on the Service even after you close your account may permit your fans to have continued access to your music. And who knows, with any luck you'll decide to reactivate your account. If you do choose to keep User Materials on the Service following termination, these Terms will continue to apply in full force and effect for so long as such materials are available on or through the Service.
3.2. Notwithstanding Section 15.3(a), you hereby grant Clipster the right to retain all User Materials on Clipster's servers for a period of not more than 30 days following a request to terminate a user account and/or delete User Materials from the Service so that you can change your mind and not feel as though you made a big mistake or in the event two or more individuals having administrative rights to a user account on the Service cannot agree on whether to terminate an account on the Service and/or remove all User Materials from the Service. In the event that there is a request to terminate a user account and/or delete User Materials from a user account for which more than one person has administrative rights for such account, an e-mail notice will be sent to all users having administrative rights for such account notifying them of the request of at least one administrative user to terminate the account and/or delete all User Materials associated with such account. All other administrative users shall thereafter have 30 days within which to object to the request to terminate such account and/or delete User Materials. If no action is taken by another user holding administrative rights to an account within such 30-day period, the account shall be terminated and all User Materials will be deleted from the Service unless an election is made pursuant to Section 16.3(a) to retain User Materials on the Service notwithstanding the termination of a user account. If, however, any user having administrative rights for such account objects to the termination of such account and/or the deletion of User Materials within the 30-day notice period, then such account shall not be terminated and the users holding administrative rights should resolve amongst themselves the question of whether a user account should be terminated and/or User Materials deleted from the Service. In the absence of an agreement among users holding administrative rights to the same account, the user account shall remain active and all User Materials shall remain on the Service absent an order from a court of competent jurisdiction to the contrary. A user should therefore be careful before giving others administrative rights to an account.
16. NOTICE AND PROCEDURE FOR MAKING CLAIMS OF COPYRIGHT OR OTHER INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY INFRINGEMENTS
1. Clipster respects the intellectual property of others and takes the protection of copyrights and all other intellectual property very seriously, and we ask our users to do the same. Infringing activity will not be tolerated on or through the Service.
2. Clipster's intellectual property policy is to (1) remove material that Clipster believes in good faith, upon notice from an intellectual property owner or their agent, is infringing the intellectual property of a third party by being made available through the Service, and (2) remove any User Content posted to the Service by "repeat infringers." Clipster considers a "repeat infringer" to be any user that has uploaded User Content to the Service and for whom Clipster has received more than two takedown notices compliant with the provisions of 17 U.S.C. § 512(c) with respect to such User Content. Clipster has discretion, however, to terminate the account of any user after receipt of a single notification of claimed infringement or upon Clipster's own determination.
3. Procedure for Reporting Claimed Infringement.
