Last revised on September 23, 2015
YOU ARE FORMING A LEGALLY BINDING AGREEMENT. PLEASE READ THIS USER AGREEMENT (“AGREEMENT”) CAREFULLY BEFORE USING THIS WEBSITE OR SERVICE PROVIDED BY ACCLAIM. BY USING THE ACCLAIM SERVICE, YOU BIND YOURSELF TO THIS AGREEMENT.
The mission of MyAcclaim LLC and getacclaim.com is to allow its users, with ease and simplicity, to unleash the immense potential of video as a powerful and efficient medium for education, training, collaboration and other projects by enabling online, interactive critique and annotation of video content. To achieve our objective, we make the Acclaim service (the “Service”) available through our website at getacclaim.com (“Website”).
(b) Formation of Our Agreement.
In this Agreement, the words “you” and “your” and “User” refer to the registered user of the Acclaim Website and Service. It is your responsibility to keep your Acclaim profile information accurate and updated. The words “Acclaim,” “we,” “us” and “our” refer to MyAcclaim LLC, a Virginia limited liability company and the owner, operator and provider of the getacclaim.com Website and Service.
With respect to this Agreement, your use of the Service is an action that represents your assent to and agreement with the provisions of this Agreement the same as if you were signing a physical piece of paper setting forth this Agreement. We are relying upon you entering into this Agreement in permitting you to access this Website and use the Service. By accessing this Website and using the Service, you confirm and manifest your agreement with us to be bound by this Agreement. If you do not agree to the terms of this Agreement, then do not use this Website or the Service because doing so means you agree to this Agreement.
If you are using Acclaim on behalf of a company, organization or other legal entity, the entity may have a separate agreement with us, but you are nevertheless individually bound by this Agreement.
2. YOUR OBLIGATIONS
(a) Applicable laws and this Agreement.
You must comply with all applicable laws and this Agreement, as it may be amended from time to time.
(b) Permissions and responsibility for your submissions to Acclaim.
There are many types of content that you may submit to the Service (“User Content”). One type is video that you upload (“User Video”). Another type is data about you and about your User Videos (“User Data”). Another type is feedback to User Videos (“Feedback”). There are many other types of User Content. By uploading User Content to our Service, you agree to provide us with all rights necessary to process it. You retain full ownership of your User Content. We don’t claim any ownership of User Content. This Agreement does not grant us any rights to User Content or intellectual property, except for the limited rights that are needed to run the Service and make the User Content available to you and other users.
You may also embed videos from the third party service called YouTube. This is facilitated through an API integration with YouTube’s services. By using this functionality, you are agreeing to be bound by the YouTube Terms of Service, which can be found at the following link: https://www.youtube.com/t/terms
For clarity, some of the rights you rights you grant to us by uploading User Video include the right to host your User Video, share it with the other users you invite into your projects (“Guests”), and permitting Guests and users to annotate it. In addition, we also back up User Content. By using the Service, you give us and our third parties these permissions.
We may choose to review User Content for compliance with our community guidelines, but we have no obligation to monitor any User Content or other information on the Service. We are not responsible for the accuracy, completeness, appropriateness, or legality of User Video, User Data, Feedback, or any other information you provide or may be able to access using the Service.
User Video and other content accessible through the Service may be protected by intellectual property rights of others.
