Your Content and Conduct



Uploading Content



If you have a Roovet Video channel, you may be able to upload Content to the Service. You may use your Content to promote your business or artistic enterprise.

Rights you Grant



You retain ownership rights in your Content. However, we do require you to grant certain rights to Roovet Video and other users of the Service, as described below.

License to Roovet Video



By providing Content to the Service, you grant to Roovet Video a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, sublicensable and transferable license to use that Content (including to reproduce, distribute, prepare derivative works, display and perform it) in connection with the Service and Roovet Video's (and its successors' and Affiliates') business, including for the purpose of promoting and redistributing part or all of the Service.

License to Other Users



You also grant each other user of the Service a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free license to access your Content through the Service, and to use that Content, including to reproduce, distribute, prepare derivative works, display, and perform it, only as enabled by a feature of the Service (such as video playback or embeds). For clarity, this license does not grant any rights or permissions for a user to make use of your Content independent of the Service.

Duration of License



The licenses granted by you continue for a commercially reasonable period of time after you remove or delete your Content from the Service. You understand and agree, however, that Roovet Video may retain, but not display, distribute, or perform, server copies of your videos that have been removed or deleted.

You may remove your Content from the Service at any time. You also have the option to make a copy of your Content before removing it. You must remove your Content if you no longer have the rights required by these terms.

Removal of Content By Roovet Video



If we reasonably believe that any Content is in breach of this Agreement or may cause harm to Roovet Video, our users, or third parties, we may remove or take down that Content in our discretion. We will notify you with the reason for our action unless we reasonably believe that to do so: (a) would breach the law or the direction of a legal enforcement authority or would otherwise risk legal liability for Roovet Video or our Affiliates; (b) would compromise an investigation or the integrity or operation of the Service; or (c) would cause harm to any user, other third party, Roovet Video or our Affiliates. You can learn more about reporting and enforcement, including how to appeal on the Troubleshooting page of our Help Center.

We provide information to help copyright holders manage their intellectual property online in our Roovet Video Copyright Center. If you believe your copyright has been infringed on the Service, please send us a notice.

We respond to notices of alleged copyright infringement according to the process in our Roovet Video Copyright Center, where you can also find information about how to resolve a copyright strike.
