SpareMin - Headliner Software
TERMS OF SERVICE
Last updated: August 22, 2018
These “Terms of Service” constitute a legal agreement between SpareMin Inc. (referred to as “SpareMin,” “us”, “we” or “our”) and you (“you”, “your” or “end user”) that governs your access to, and use of our video software-as-a-service currently called “Headliner” (“Software”). The Software is made available through the website located at headliner.app (including any subdomains and successor websites) (“Site”). The Software and Site are collectively referred to herein as the “Service”.
As of July 16, 2018, we no longer support our previously published mobile apps. More info about the retirement of those mobile apps can be found here https://www.sparemin.com/legacy-mobile-app-users/. Any use of our mobile apps should be discontinued.
THESE TERMS REQUIRE THE USE OF BINDING ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS TO RESOLVE ALL DISPUTES ARISING UNDER THEM, RATHER THAN JURY TRIALS OR CLASS ACTIONS.
IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THESE TERMS, DO NOT ACCESS OR USE THE SERVICE.
1. DESCRIPTION OF THE SERVICE
The Headliner Software is provided to you in the form of software as a service (or “SaaS”), for use as an editing tool to create videos using your videos, images, text, and audio. You will use the Software remotely, and the videos you create will be stored on our servers. Please follow the instructions on the Site carefully to understand how to use the Software.
We may provide you with different options for using the Software, including paid, free and ad-supported versions (“SaaS Tiers”). The pricing and additional terms and details of the SaaS Tiers are/will be available on the Site.
The Service is intended solely for users who are 18 years of age or older. By accessing or using the Service, you represent and warrant that: (i) you are 18 years of age or older and otherwise have capacity to contract; and (ii) if you are accessing or using the Service on behalf of an entity, you have the authority to bind that entity to these Terms of Service. The Service is controlled and offered by SpareMin from the United States. SpareMin makes no representations that the Service is appropriate or available for use in other locations.
While you can browse through certain publicly-available information through the Site without registering for an account through the Service, in order to use all of the features and functionality of the Software, you will be required to register for an account with us. You may be asked to provide certain registration details or other information, to enable you to create a user account and to help us provide the Service to you (“Account”).
You represent and warrant that: (i) all required registration information you submit is correct, current, and complete; (ii) you will maintain the accuracy of such information; and (iii) your use of the Service does not violate any applicable law or regulation. Each set of Account credentials can be used by only one end user. You are solely responsible for the confidentiality and use of your Account credentials, as well as for any use, misuse, or communications entered through the Service using one or more of them. You will promptly inform us of any need to deactivate an account or change your Account credentials. Sparemin will not be liable for any loss or damage caused by any unauthorized use of your Account.
We are under no obligation to permit any individual to create an Account, and may accept or reject any Account or any end user’s attempt to create an Account in our sole and complete discretion.
4. YOUR Content
(a) Ownership. You retain all rights/ownership of your content. We do not claim ownership in any way to your content.
(b) Licenses to Your Content in Order to Operate the Service. We require certain licenses from you to your content as well as any resulting videos you create (collectively, “Content”) to operate and enable the Service. You grant SpareMin and its respective employees (“Authorized Persons”), a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, sub-licensable, and transferrable license to use, reproduce, publicly display, distribute, modify (so as to better showcase your Content, for example), publicly perform, and translate the Content as needed in response to user driven actions (such as when you choose to store privately or share your Content with others). This license is only for the purpose of operating, and/or improving the Service.
(c) Our Access. We will only access, view, or listen to your Content in limited ways. In order to perform the Service, we may need to access, view, or listen to your Content to (a) respond to support requests; (b) detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security, unlawful, or technical issues; and (c) enforce these terms. Our automated systems may analyze your Content. This analysis might occur as the Content is sent, received, or when it is stored. From this analysis, we are able to improve the Service.
(d) Internet Media. SpareMin provides access to various media (e.g. videos, images, and audio) from various third party providers each with their own terms and conditions. Please refer to the Media Use Terms for individual provider terms. Use of their media must comply with their respective terms of service. SpareMin also may provide information through the Service pertaining to media assets that may be found on the Internet (“Internet Media”). When using the Software, we provide you with access to filters from some of the largest search engines, in order to refine your search for Internet Media by limiting results of the Internet Media to those that have been tagged by the creators as licensed “for commercial use with modification.”
While these search filters can be used as a guide to help find Internet Media available for your use with the Service, these third-party websites have not always tagged their Internet Media properly. You always need to understand and comply with the terms of the specific license associated with each Internet Media asset, and you may require prior permission from the owner of the copyright in the Internet Media asset in order to confirm that the license is authentic and correct. Please note that under these licenses, you are generally required to give attribution to the site that or person who created the Internet Media.
While our Service is meant to facilitate your search to find Internet Media that you may legally use, it is your responsibility to make sure you use Internet Media in a manner consistent with applicable copyright laws.
(e) Sharing Your Content. Subject to the licensing terms for Internet Media as described in Section 4(d) above and these Terms of Service, the Service may allow you to email, post, transmit, upload, or otherwise make your Content available (whether to us or other users) through your use of the Service. Other users may use, copy, modify, or re-share your Content in many ways. Please consider carefully what you choose to share or make public. You are solely responsible for the Content that you share with others.
(f) Marketing/Promotional Use of Your Content. Content that you post publicly (e.g., on Social Media or your website) may be promoted by SpareMin. Content that is private or not shared publicly will never be promoted by SpareMin. In addition, as a user of the service, you allow SpareMin the right to use your entity name/logo in promotional/marketing materials including the Site. If you prefer SpareMin does not use your entity name/logo, your request will be honored, please just notify SpareMin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
