Definitions of terms are implemented throughout this agreement as a convenience for User’s and Visitors. If you have any comments or questions regarding our Terms of Service, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The following terms are used throughout this Agreement: “Subscriber” also means a Paid Subscriber. “Customer” is synonymous with someone who uses our services but is not a Paid Subscriber. “You” and “Your” may be used as a pronoun to replace “Subscriber” or “Customer.”
“Company” means our company as well as “us” or “our”. “Intellectual Property” means any creative work to which a person owns or holds rights, which are protected by copyright; patent; and/or trademark laws, rules, and regulations. “Submission” is any file, data, or content emailed or submitted to our Company; or uploaded to a Subscriber’s YouTube Channel which is to be edited in order to add translation, captioning, and/or subtitles.
Customer Consent and Accounts
Customers and Subscribers grant our Company permission to use their YouTube account as administrators in order to access; download; and edit their videos for resubmission to their YouTube channel after translation and subtitles have been completed. Administrator access will be used only for uploading, updating, adding, or removing captions, translations, or subtitles for purchased items.
Content and Submissions
A “work” or “submission” is a video or file that is submitted or uploaded to our Company, website, or a YouTube channel editing, translation, subtitles, and/or captioning services. In order to comply with both Federal and International Intellectual Property Laws, the Subscriber or Customer of the work to be edited acknowledges and warrants:
- They are the original owner of the work;
- The video, files, or work submitted does not infringe upon third-party copyrights;
- The work or submission is not involved in pending or threatening litigation;
- The work or submission must not contain content our Company deems offensive; pornographic; or otherwise illegal or prohibited;
- The work, files, or content do not contain: viruses; malware; spyware; data mining code, or bots;
- The files, work, or submission do not contain any software, code, or files that might be harmful to our website, platform, or servers.
Subscribers and Customers understand and agree that any website content that they access or download, whether on our website; or any other third-party website; is at their own risk and agree to accept personal responsibility for any damages or losses. You also acknowledge to hold our Company, owners, employees, and agents harmless against any and all claims for losses, injuries, or damages.
We offer two different levels of service: (a) pay-as-you-go upon invoice; and (b) a bi-weekly subscription service. Pay-as-you-Go. Upon receipt of payment our video experts will access the Customer’s video; subtitle, caption, or translate the video; and then submit the completed and edited subtitles, captions, or translations to their YouTube channel. The fee for English Captions is $1.00 (one dollar) per minute; and for translations $0.06 to $0.08 per word unless otherwise agreed. Bi-Weekly Subscription. Customers who require our service on an ongoing basis can opt for the bi-weekly option where a bi-weekly payment will be deducted from their debit or credit card depending on the volume of videos they create in each bi-weekly cycle. The subscription will automatically renew for an additional 30-day period unless the Customer cancels by submitting a written Cancellation Notice to Customer Support within ten (10) days of the subscription renewal date at Info@translator.com.
Our Company retains all rights, title and interest to our own website and its’ content which is protected by copyrights, trademarks, service marks, patents, trade secrets or other laws, both locally and internationally. You promise not to interfere with these rights, and to follow all applicable intellectual property laws.
