I. Description of Service

Viddy provides a social mobile application that makes it easy to quickly capture, produce, and share bite-size videos with the world (collectively, such services, including any new features and applications, and the Site, the ”Service“). Unlike traditional video services, the Service allows users (”you“) to instantly create beautiful videos, share them with those who matter most, and provides instant feedback and inspiration for the community. Pre-bundled, one-click post production packages add graphics, transitions, visual effects, audio and adjust frame rates to give your video that cinematic look, while geo-location, titles and tags provide personalized context. Through an elegant user interface and advanced backend technology—including a mobile cloud encoding system, portable server-side ”Production“ packages, robust gaming mechanisms, and realtime video feeds, the Service delivers an engaging, premium user experience on just about any device (iPhone, Android, Windows Mobile, and more). The Service is a life-streaming movie studio and real-time film festival—on the go.

X. Miscellaneous

Modifications

Viddy reserves the right to change this TOS or Viddy's policies relating to the Service at any time and will notify you by posting an updated version of this TOS on the Service and/or by sending you an email message. You are responsible for regularly reviewing this TOS. Continued use of the Service after any such changes will constitute your consent to such changes.

Availability

There will be occasions when the Service will be interrupted whether for maintenance, upgrades and emergency repairs or otherwise and you agree that Viddy will not be liable to you or any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of the Service. Viddy is not responsible for any disruption inherent in the operation of the Internet, including viruses or otherwise.

Arbitration

At Viddy's or your election, all disputes, claims, or controversies arising out of or relating to the TOS or the Service that are not resolved by mutual agreement may be resolved by binding arbitration to be conducted before JAMS, or its successor. Unless otherwise agreed by the parties, arbitration will be held in Los Angeles, California before a single arbitrator mutually agreed upon by the parties, or if the parties cannot mutually agree, a single arbitrator appointed by JAMS, and will be conducted in accordance with the rules and regulations promulgated by JAMS unless specifically modified in the TOS. The arbitration must commence within forty-five (45) days of the date on which a written demand for arbitration is filed by either party. The arbitrator's decision and award will be made and delivered within sixty (60) days of the conclusion of the arbitration and within six (6) months of the selection of the arbitrator. The arbitrator will not have the power to award damages in excess of the limitation on actual compensatory, direct damages set forth in the TOS and may not multiply actual damages or award punitive damages or any other damages that are specifically excluded under the TOS, and each party hereby irrevocably waives any claim to such damages. The arbitrator may, in his or her discretion, assess costs and expenses (including the reasonable legal fees and expenses of the prevailing part) against any party to a proceeding. Any party refusing to comply with an order of the arbitrators will be liable for costs and expenses, including attorneys' fees, incurred by the other party in enforcing the award. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the case of temporary or preliminary injunctive relief, any party may proceed in court without prior arbitration for the purpose of avoiding immediate and irreparable harm. The provisions of this arbitration section will be enforceable in any court of competent jurisdiction.

General

This TOS will be governed by California law and controlling United States federal law, without regard to the choice or conflicts of law provisions of any jurisdiction. You will bring all disputes, actions, claims, or causes of action related to this TOS or in connection with the Service only in the federal and state courts located in Los Angeles, California. If any provision of this TOS is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid or unenforceable, then such provision(s) will be construed, as nearly as possible, to reflect the intentions of the invalid or unenforceable provision(s), with all other provisions remaining in full force and effect. No joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between you and Viddy as a result of this agreement or use of the Service. The failure of Viddy to enforce any right or provision in this TOS will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision unless acknowledged and agreed to by Viddy in writing. Viddy has the right to assign any or all of its rights and obligations under this TOS at any time. This TOS comprises the entire agreement between you and Viddy and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous negotiations, discussions or agreements, whether written or oral, between the parties regarding the subject matter contained herein.
