2.1 Grant of Licenses. (a) Right to Use the Services. Subject to the terms and conditions of the Contract(s), including without limitation these Terms of Service and the AUP, Ooyala grants to You, during the Term specified in the Contract(s) or the limited time period specified for the Demo Account issued to You, a non-exclusive, non-transferable, revocable, limited license, without right of sublicense, to access and use the Services. (b) Content. You hereby grant Ooyala a worldwide, royalty-free, non-exclusive, transferable (solely to Ooyala’s Agents and Suppliers) license to perform such acts with respect to the Content solely as are reasonable in connection with provisioning the Services including, without limitation, the right to: (i) secure, transcode, encode, reproduce, host, cache, route, reformat, and analyze the Content and create algorithms and reports based on access to and use of the Content by Users and End Users; (ii) use, exhibit, broadcast, deliver, publish, publicly display, publicly perform, distribute, promote, copy, store, and/or reproduce (in any form) the Content on or through the Services; and (iii) utilize Content to test Ooyala’s internal technologies and processes. 

2.2 Scope of Use. (a) Responsibility for Content. You are solely responsible for all matters arising out of or in connection with the Content including, without limitation, ensuring that the Content does not include Prohibited Content (as defined in the AUP). (b) Content.  You are responsible for all Content (regardless of whether provided by You and/or by third parties) including without limitation for any damages that may result from errors or omissions, false or defamatory material, and/or material that is offensive, indecent, objectionable, infringing, and/or illegal. Under no circumstances will Ooyala, its Agents or its Suppliers be liable in any way for Content or for any loss or damage of any kind incurred by You or any third party as a result of the use or publication of any Content posted, delivered, streamed, or otherwise transmitted via in or connection with the Services. Without limiting the foregoing, You acknowledge that neither Ooyala nor its Agents or Suppliers will be responsible for preventing or identifying infringement of intellectual property rights or other violations associations with the Content, and that Ooyala, its Agents and its Suppliers assume no responsibility to edit, review, or oversee Content submitted, uploaded, distributed, retrieved, or viewed in connection with use of the Services, and shall not be responsible for screening or monitoring for possible (i) infringement or enforcing Your rights or third party rights with respect to Content, (ii) unlawful, inappropriate or unpermitted use, (iii) libel, falsehoods, errors or omissions contained in Content, or (iv) noncompliance with FCC or other governmental laws and/or regulations. For any infringement or suspected infringement of intellectual property rights, You must immediately remove the applicable Content from the Services. Without limiting the foregoing, You acknowledge that Ooyala complies with the DMCA Notification Procedures available at http://www.ooyala.com/dmca with respect to third party claims of infringement. (c) Third Party Materials/Products/Services. Any third party products, content, services and/or links displayed on or through the Services are not referrals or endorsements of any product, service or provider; any and all such offerings are displayed solely for convenience only. The Services may in some cases be permitted for use with third party components or services (“Third Party Services”) that may be subject to their own, separate license agreements or special pass-through terms, and You assume all risks and liabilities associated with the use of any such third party offerings. For clarity, nothing in this Section 2.2(c) diminishes Ooyala’s obligations to You under these Terms of Service with respect to Ooyala’s (or its Suppliers’) technology that is expressly stated as included within the “Services” in the Contract(s) (the “Ooyala IP”), but instead relates to any access and/or use of third party products and/or services that You elect to utilize in connection with the Ooyala IP (regardless of whether Ooyala provides integration or other services at Your request in connection with enabling or utilizing third party products and/or services with the Services). In no event will Ooyala be responsible or liable for any failure or inability to access Third Party Services, including without limitation that which is caused by changes to Third Party Services (or portions thereof) that affect the integration with or use of the Ooyala IP or otherwise. If You utilize YouTube in connection with the Services, YouTube wants You to know that it is not charging You to view its content, and as such the Fees stated in Contract(s) never include charges for the YouTube content itself. (d) You acknowledge and agree that the technical processing and transmission of the Services and/or Content may involve transmissions over various networks and changes by You may be required to conform and adapt to technical requirements of connecting networks or devices.  (e) The Player. The Player contains software to track and capture End User activity to assist Ooyala and You in optimizing the Services and Your use of and benefit derived from the Services. Your obligations related to disclosures to End Users on Your website(s), applications, or otherwise are indicated in the Privacy Policy. (f) Content Preservation and Disclosure. You expressly acknowledge and agree that Ooyala may, but is not required to, preserve Content and may also disclose Content if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such preservation or disclosure is reasonable or necessary to: (i) comply with legal process; (ii) enforce a Contract, including without limitation these Terms of Service; (iii) respond to claims that any Content violates the rights of third parties; and/or (iv) protect the rights, property, or personal safety of Ooyala, its Suppliers, users and/or the public. (g) Demonstration Accounts. At Ooyala’s discretion, You may receive a Demo Account that may include limited access to test certain features and functionality of the Services. Ooyala is permitted to suspend or terminate the Demo Account in its sole discretion at any time with or without notice. At the end of any demonstration period as determined by Ooyala, You are responsible for paying applicable fees for use of the Services pursuant to the payment terms and prices designated in a separate agreement between You and Ooyala (or one of its Agents) or, if no such agreement has been executed, then pursuant to the Ooyala’s then-current standard pricing schedule, which may (but is not required to) be available on the Ooyala website or the Demo Account interface.

3. Automatic Updates/Communication Features.

The Services consist of the most current versions thereof, including without limitation automatic general release updates to the Services such as bug fixes, patches, enhanced functions, and/or security related patches.  You agree to accept and/or migrate (as applicable) to any and all new versions of Services, or any portion thereof, that Ooyala may implement and/or otherwise provide to You, and Ooyala shall have no obligation to provide or support any prior versions of the Services or portions thereof.

4. Fees/Taxes.

(a)  Fees; Payment Terms.  In consideration of Your rights under the Contract(s), You shall timely pay Ooyala in U.S. dollars the Fees designated in the Contract(s). You agree to purchase the Services indicated in each applicable Contract for the Initial Term stated therein and any renewal terms. All recurring Fees (including without limitation, as applicable to the Contract(s): platform fees, support fees, and bundled use allotment fees (e.g. for transcoding, streaming, delivery, processed content, storage, etc.)) are due and payable in advance, all usage-based fees (e.g., for transcoding, streaming, delivery, processed content, storage, etc. in lieu of or in excess of the prepaid allotments, as applicable) are due and payable monthly in arrears, and all non-recurring Fees (e.g. pursuant to statement(s) of work) are due and payable on the effective date of the order unless otherwise stated in a particular statement of work. Any unused portions of included and/or bundled use allotments that may be stated in the Contract(s) (including without limitation use allotments relating to streams, transcoding, processed content, and/or delivery) will expire at the end of each time increment stated in the Contract(s) and will not rollover to subsequent timeframes or time increments. (b)  Taxes.  You are solely responsible for all applicable sales, use, import or export taxes, duties, fees, tax due at source (TDS), value-added taxes (VAT), surcharges, tariffs or other amounts attributable to the Services and exploitation of the Content under the Contract(s) and any withholdings of the same required by Ooyala will be invoiced back to You.  (c) Fees not paid when due shall be subject to a late fee equal to the lesser of one and one half percent (1.5%) of the unpaid balance per month or the highest monthly rate permitted by applicable law. Ooyala may, with or without notice, suspend access to the Services and/or terminate the Contract(s) if You are delinquent in paying all or any portion of the Fees. In the event that a Contract is terminated prior to the end of the Term for any reason other than an uncured material breach by Ooyala, all committed fees for the Term shall become immediately due and owing in full.  In addition, You will be liable for any collection costs (including without limitation attorneys fees and other legal fees and expenses, collection agency fees and expenses, court costs, collection bonds, and reasonable staff costs at standard billing rates for time spent in efforts to collect) incurred by Ooyala and/or its Agents to collect sums due and owing under the Contract(s).  After the Initial Term of a Contract or renewal thereof (as applicable), the Fees shall be subject to Ooyala’s standard pricing changes.

5. Term and Termination.

The term of a Demo Account shall be as determined by Ooyala in its sole discretion. The term of all other Contracts shall be the initial committed term indicated in the Contract(s) (the “Initial Term”) and all renewals (collectively referred to herein as the “Term”). Each Contract will automatically renew for consecutive twelve (12) month terms unless either party terminates the applicable Contract effective as of the end of the then-current term by notifying the other party in writing or email at least sixty (60) days prior to the end of then-current term. Upon the termination of a Contract any reason, You shall immediately discontinue all use of the Services and Ooyala is not obligated to provide you with any Services. You may terminate a Contract if Ooyala materially breaches a term or condition of the Contract and such breach has not been cured within thirty (30) days of written notice by providing Ooyala with written notice of such suspension or termination, provided however that all Fees that were incurred prior to the date of termination shall be immediately due and payable upon termination and provided further that nothing herein shall be deemed a waiver of any claims that Ooyala may have against You. Ooyala may in its sole discretion suspend Your access to the Services (or any portion thereof) and/or terminate the Contract(s): (a) should You fail to comply with a term or condition of the Contract(s), including without limitation these Terms of Service and/or the AUP; (b) based on any conduct that Ooyala believes is or may be directly or indirectly harmful to other users, to Ooyala or its suppliers (including their respective systems and/or the Services); (c) based on any conduct that Ooyala reasonably believes may be a violation of law, third party rights, and/or Ooyala’s Prohibited Activities or restrictions on Prohibited Content (each as described in the AUP), or repeated breaches thereof; and/or (d) in the event of any legal restriction imposed on You, Ooyala, and/or its Suppliers with respect to provision of the Services. Ooyala’s right to suspend or terminate Services as set forth in this Section shall not absolve You of any payment or indemnification obligations described herein or diminish any other right or remedy available to Ooyala and/or its Suppliers. All terms and conditions set forth herein that should by their nature survive termination (including without limitation all provisions relating to payment, intellectual property, ownership, and indemnification) in order to be given full effect shall continue in full force and effect after any expiration or termination of the Contract(s).

6. Title and Ownership.

Ooyala and its Suppliers own all right, title and interest in and to the Services (including any content that might be provided by Ooyala and/or its Suppliers) including associated intellectual property rights under copyright, trade secret, patent, trademark and/or other applicable domestic and international laws. In no event shall the Services (or any portion thereof) or any content (including without limitation advertisements) that might be provided by Ooyala and/or its Suppliers be deemed sold or assigned to You.

14. Governing Law; Dispute Resolution.

You understand and agree that the Contract(s), including without limitation these Terms of Service, shall be governed by the laws of the State of California as such laws apply to contracts between California residents performed entirely within California, without regard to conflict of law provisions. Any action or proceeding arising from or relating to the Contract(s), including without limitation these Terms of Service, may only be brought in the State and Federal courts located in Santa Clara, California and each party irrevocably submits to such exclusive jurisdiction and venue.

15. General Provisions.

The Contract(s), including these Terms of Services and all URLs incorporated herein (i.e., the Acceptable Use Policy located at www.ooyala.com/aup, the DMCA Guidelines located at www.ooyala.com/dmca, and the Privacy Policy located at www.ooyala.com/privacy), constitute the complete and exclusive agreements between You and Ooyala with respect to its subject matter and supersedes any and all prior written or oral agreement or understanding relating to the same subject matter. In the event of any conflict between or among any Contract executed by both You and Ooyala and these Terms of Service, the Contract shall control to the extent of such conflict and all other terms and conditions of each shall continue to remain in full force and effect.  If any provision of a Contract, including without limitation these Terms of Service is held unenforceable for any reason, such provision shall be reformed only to the extent necessary to make it enforceable and such decision shall not affect the enforceability of such provision under other circumstances, or of the remaining provisions hereof under all circumstances. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in these Terms of Service, if You procure the Services through one of Ooyala’s Agents instead of directly from Ooyala, then Ooyala has no direct or indirect liability to You in connection with the Services or otherwise regardless of whether Ooyala hosts the Services. You and Ooyala are independent contractors and no joint venture, partnership, employment, agency or exclusive relationship exists between You and Ooyala as a result of the Contract(s) and/or Your use of the Services as authorized thereunder. Any written notice required hereunder may be transmitted via email to the primary email contacts provided or other official email contacts available to a party if such email contacts are no longer relevant due to employee departure or otherwise. . A Contract may only be modified by written amendment signed by authorized representatives of both You and Ooyala. All waivers must be made in writing and the failure of You or Ooyala to enforce any right or provision in a Contract or in these Terms of Service shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. Any waiver on one occasion shall not imply or constitute a waiver on any other occasion. Ooyala shall not be responsible for any failure to perform, or delay in performing any of its obligations under a Contract or these Terms of Service to the extent that such a failure or delay results from force majeure causes beyond its control, such as acts of God or of the public enemy, acts of the government in its sovereign or contractual capacity, fires, floods, epidemics, quarantine restrictions, freight embargoes, strikes, civil commotion, or the like. You may not transfer or assign these Terms of Service or any rights or obligations hereunder, directly or indirectly, by operation of law or otherwise, without the prior written consent of Ooyala and any such assignment shall be null and void from the beginning. The Contract(s), including without limitation these Terms of Service, shall inure to the benefit of and be binding upon Ooyala’s or Your respective permitted successors and assigns.
