You're here on our platform

That means the low-down on our terms is relevant to you. Read on.

Here’s how we’d like this to work.

Before we get into the official legal detail, here in human-speak are our goals for how we want our service to work for you, and how we want to treat you as our user.

When you're a viewer, we will:

  • Take just enough info to successfully show you videos. 

    For example, if a channel you’ve been invited to is private, we’ll need you to create a login to access it.
  • Try to keep content standards high, for learning and sharing ideas.
    
We’ll do our best to ensure the content you see is appropriate, e.g not harmful, violent, or profane.
  • Track use of the platform, to provide generic reports.

    We’ll give channel owners some basic stats on how many viewers visit their channel. We won’t snoop on your individual use.

When you're a channel owner, we will:

  • Aim to provide a high quality experience. 

    
We’ll make every effort to ensure your channel is available as consistently as possible.
  • Take enough info for you to run your channel.

    That means an account to log in and administrate your channel, and some info about your organisation so we can bill you.
  • Support your sharing of useful and educational content.
    We’ll review your content only to ensure it’s appropriate, and also not offending somebody else’s ownership rights. We’ll do our best to protect yours.
  • Be as transparent and fair as we can. 

    We’ll do our best to clearly convey our platform terms, features and pricing, and to call out major changes to it.
We hope this sets our terms and privacy in helpful context. Now, you’re ready to wade in.

Terms of use

If you’re using this platform, you’re agreeing to these terms.

Eventer Pty Ltd (“Eventer”, “we” or “us”) provides a video sharing platform through the website eventer.com, related domains (including sub-domains), embedded player, and Eventer mobile applications. These are collectively known as the Eventer platform (“platform”).

By registering as a channel owner, viewer, or by using the platform in any way, you accept these terms of use (“terms”). Together with our privacy policy, these terms govern our relationship with you for this platform. If you do not wish to be bound by this agreement, do not use the platform.

General use of the platform.

You may use the platform for its intended purpose, and not attempt to harm or misuse it.

We grant you a license to access and use the platform for your personal or commercial purposes. This includes to view content on the platform, and to upload and publish your own content. This license is personal to you and may not be assigned or sub-licensed to anyone else.

You may:

  • Access public talks and their associated content.
  • Add your own talks, their associated content and information you choose to share about your company, your events, and your supporters and sponsors.
  • Use the talks including the video thumbnails, associated content, and embedded player to share or promote your content on your own website or other public websites.
  • Charge a fee of your discretion to your viewers to access talks in your private events.

You may not:

  • Attempt to access private events by any means other than an email invitation by the channel owner.
  • Distribute in any medium any part of the platform without our prior written permission, unless using means made available by us (e.g the embedded player).
  • Access the content through any technology or means other than via the playback pages on the platform itself, the embedded player and the mobile application, unless you own the content or have written permission from us and the owner to do so.
  • Modify, build upon or block any functionality of the embedded player.
  • Attempt to modify or harm the platform in any way, or attempt to harvest video, user, company or other content.

Privacy.

Our privacy policy is part of this agreement, and tells you what information we may collect about you, what we use it for, and who we share it with.

User accounts.

To access some features of the platform, you will need to create an Eventer account.

To have an account, you need to be human. Accounts registered by automated means are not permitted.

You must be at least 13 years old to create a channel and publish talks on Eventer. If you are at least 13, and are still a minor (this depends on where you live) you will need your parent or legal guardian’s permission to own a channel.

If you are a parent or guardian reading this, and are granting your child permission to own a channel, you agree to these terms on behalf of your child. You are responsible for monitoring their use of this platform. If your child is using it and you do not wish them to, please get in touch with us and we will disable their account.

When registering, you need to provide us with accurate information. We encourage you to use your real name.

If you’re registering on behalf of a company, university or government entity, you must use the actual organisation name, and provide accurate details for billing information. You need to have the authority to bind your organisation to these terms.

Your login may only be used by one person. You are responsible for the activity on your account, including the content that is uploaded. It’s up to you to keep your password secure, and to notify us immediately if any unauthorised access of your account occurs. We are not liable for any losses or other consequences of unauthorised use of your account.

Channel pricing and changes

We will bill you each month for the billable talks in your channel, and can suspend or remove your channel if you don’t pay, or act outside of these terms.

When you create a channel with Eventer, you can publish talks. Our pricing sets out what is free, and when we will charge you.

We’ll tell you once you have crossed over your free use, into a paid subscription. Once you do, you are responsible for the monthly charges.

Eventer is billed in arrears on a monthly basis for your use during that month.

Your first bill will occur one month after you cross into the paid threshold. Then and each calendar month after, you will be billed for the total number of unique billable talks on your channel during that month.

Unique billable talks are defined as individual talks (a pair of videos) that have been made active for viewing by your public or private audience. We will only count a unique talk once, regardless if it has been made active/inactive multiple times, or if it was active for the whole month, or only part of.

If you make a talk inactive, you will be charged for the month it was active, but not in subsequent months, unless you republish it.

All fees are exclusive of all taxes, levies, or duties imposed by taxing authorities, and you shall be responsible for payment of all such taxes, levies, or duties.

If you have not paid your monthly subscription, we reserve the right to terminate your channel.

The prices for all uses of the platform are subject to change on 30 days notice from us. We will notify you by email, or on the platform itself.

Platform availability and changes

We will try to maintain a healthy secure application, but do not promise it will be error or problem-free.

Eventer uses third party vendors and hosting partners to provide the hardware, software, networking, storage and related technology required to run the platform.

The platform is provided on an “as is” and “as available” basis. We do not guarantee that use of it will be uninterrupted, timely, secure or error-free.

We may from time to time modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the platform with or without notice.

We are not liable to you or any third party for any such modification, suspension or discontinuance.

Channel suspension and deletion

You’re able to delete your channel which will remove all of it, and if you breach our terms, so can we.

As a channel owner, you can delete your channel with us at any time. You can find this option under Settings, on the Account Details screen. An email or phone call does not constitute a cancellation.

On cancelling your channel, the content will be marked for deletion and then removed as part of regular cleanup activities.

You’re expected to abide by the terms set out here, including those that relate to appropriate content. If you do not, we can immediately suspend or close down your channel, or remove content we deem to be in breach. The channel may no longer be visible online, and content you submitted to the platform may be lost. We are not responsible for this, however you can contact us to make a claim to retrieve it, which we will consider against the full set of our terms.

If your bandwidth usage significantly exceeds the average bandwidth usage of other Eventer customers (as determined solely by us), or is impacting on the experience of other channel viewers, we reserve the right to disable your account or throttle talk delivery until the consumption is reduced.

If a channel is free (not a paid subscription) and remains inactive for a period of more than 6 months, we may delete it to make room for others to occupy that domain URL.

Viewing of content

We’ll do our best to ensure content is appropriate and not in breach of copyright. But, we’re not responsible.

When using the platform, you will view content from a variety of sources.

While we will take reasonable measures to support the rights of our channel owners, Eventer is not responsible for the accuracy or intellectual property rights of the content.

We do our best to ensure content on the Eventer platform is appropriate for a general audience, however we are not responsible if it contains content that offend some people or is not suitable for children.

Please inform us if there is content available that you find objectionable.

Publishing of content

We expect you to have the rights to publish your content, and for it to be appropriate. We may take action if it is not.

You must own or have the necessary rights, licences and consents to upload and publish content (any video, image, text or other work) on the platform. In publishing, you confirm that you do have these rights, and must not infringe on any copyrights or other rights such trademarks.

You retain all ownership rights of your content. You grant Eventer a limited, worldwide, royalty-free non-exclusive license to display your content on the Eventer platform (including web, embedded player and mobile applications), and to use the content for promotion of the platform (providing you have made the content public). You grant users the right to view your content, but only via the Eventer platform.

We support and respect the intellectual property rights of others. If you believe your copyright has been infringed, please contact us.

We encourage use of Eventer to share communications that inspire and educate. You must not upload content (any video, image, text, or other work) that is in itself or encourages behaviour that is:

  • Sexually explicit or pornographic
  • Violent or cruel, to humans or to animals
  • Hateful or discriminatory
  • Exploiting minors
  • Fraudulent or illegal.

Even if not explicitly referenced above, if we believe content is not in the best interests of viewers, we will remove it.

We do not endorse or hold any liability for your content. We can remove any content in breach of these terms.

Limitation of liability

You understand and agree that Eventer shall not be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, consequential or exemplary damages, including but not limited to, damages for loss of profits, goodwill, use, data or other intangible losses resulting from: (i) the use or the inability to use the platform; (ii) the content posted on the platform; (iii) unauthorized access to or alteration of your content; (iv) statements or conduct of any third party on the platform; (v) or any other matter relating to the platform.

Indemnity

You will indemnify, defend and hold harmless Eventer and its directors, employees, agents, representatives, independent and dependent contractors and licensees from and against any and all claims, suits, proceedings, damages, obligations, losses, liabilities, costs or debt, and expenses arising from: (i) your use of and access to the platform; (ii) your violation of any term of these terms of use; (iii) your violation of any third party right, including without limitation any copyright, property, or privacy right; or (iv) any claim that your content caused damage to a third party. This defense and indemnification obligation will survive these terms of use and your use of the platform.

Assignment

These terms of use, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by Eventer without restriction.

Trademarks

Please respect our property.

The look and feel of the platform is the property of Eventer Pty. You may not duplicate, copy or reuse any portion of the HTML/CSS, Javascript, visual design elements or concepts without written permission from Eventer.

Governing law

These terms and conditions are governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of Victoria, Australia.

Change to terms

These terms can change, which you accept with continued use of the platform.

These terms were last updated on 10 September 2012. We can modify or replace these terms at any time. Continued use of the platform following a change constitutes your acceptance of the terms.

If in our opinion the modification represents a material change to the terms, we will notify you by posting an announcement.
