Artists Unlimited Terms of Service Agreement
This Artists Unlimited Terms of Service Agreement (the "Agreement" or "Terms of Service") is made between Artists Unlimited vzw ("Artists Unlimited," "we," "us," or "our") and you, our customer ("you" or "your"). This Agreement governs your use of the artistsunlimited.online platform and our live video hosting and streaming services through our owned-and-operated websites, applications, and video players (collectively, the "Services"). These terms are not exhaustive, and Artists Unlimited reserves the right to modify them at any time, effective upon posting.
By creating an account, viewing videos, making a purchase, or otherwise visiting or using our Services, you accept this Agreement and consent to contract with us electronically. If you are an entity other than a natural person, the person who registers the account or otherwise uses our Services must have the authority to bind the entity. In this context, "you" means both the entity and each person who is authorized to access the account.
We may update this Agreement by posting a revised version on our website. By continuing to use our Services, you accept any revised Agreement.
Any violation of these Terms of Service may result in the suspension or termination of your right to access the artistsunlimited.online platform. These Terms of Service detail what is expected of you and what you can expect from other participants when using artistsunlimited.online. Artistsunlimited.online is an English language platform, and the use of the platform is governed by Belgium law.

Licenses Granted by You
As between you and Artists Unlimited, you own and will retain ownership of all intellectual property rights in and to the content you submit. In order to allow Artists Unlimited to host and stream your content, you grant Artists Unlimited the permissions set forth below.
Your Video Content
By submitting a video, you grant Artists Unlimited permission to:
Stream the video to end users;
Make the video available for download;
Transcode the video (create compressed versions of your video file that are optimized for streaming); and
Generate stills (i.e., "thumbnails") from your video to represent it (if you have not selected one).
If you have enabled a video privacy setting or disabled downloading or embedding, we will limit distribution of your video pursuant to your selection. By enabling access to your video to any third party, you grant each such person permission to stream (and/or download or embed, as applicable) your video. For the purposes in this section, your video includes its title, description, tags, and other metadata.
The license period begins when you submit the video to artistsunlimited.online and ends when you or Artists Unlimited delete it; provided that Artists Unlimited may retain archival copies: (a) for a limited period of time in case you wish to restore it; (b) when the video is the subject of a takedown notice or other legal claim; or (c) when Artists Unlimited in good faith believes that it is legally obligated to do so.
You grant Artists Unlimited permission to use your name, likeness, biography, trademarks, logos, or other identifiers used by you in your account profile for the purpose of displaying such properties to the public or the audiences you have specified. You may revoke the foregoing permission by deleting your account. Artists Unlimited shall have the right to identify public profiles in its marketing and investor materials.
Other Content; Feedback
Content that is not covered by the licenses set forth in the previous sections shall be governed by this section (e.g., text you submit in comments). You grant Artists Unlimited a perpetual and irrevocable right and license to copy, transmit, distribute, publicly perform, and display such content through online means in connection with our Services. If you make suggestions to Artists Unlimited on improving our products or services, Artists Unlimited may use your suggestions without any compensation to you.
Scope of Licenses
All licenses granted by you in this agreement (a) are non-exclusive, worldwide, and royalty-free; (b) include the right and license to copy, use, distribute, publicly perform, and display the licensed work for the purposes stated above; and (c) include all necessary rights and licenses to allow us to exercise our rights and perform our obligations. By granting these licenses, you waive any so-called "moral rights" that you may have. Nothing in this Agreement shall be deemed a license "condition" applicable to Artists Unlimited; rather, any breach of a term by Artists Unlimited hereof shall give rise to, at most, a claim for breach of contract only. All licenses granted herein are in addition to any other licenses that you may grant (e.g., a Creative Commons license).
Representations and Warranties
For each piece of content that you submit to or through artistsunlimited.online, you represent and warrant that:
You have the right to submit the content to Artists Unlimited and grant the licenses herein;

Return and rights of withdrawal
There is no withdrawal right.
In accordance with Article VI.53, 12 of the Belgian Code of Economic Law, the purchaser may not exercise their right of withdrawal in accordance with Article VI.47 for the provision of services related to leisure activities if the contract indicates a specific execution date or period.
Term and Termination
This Agreement begins when you first use our Services and continues so long as you use our Service or have an account with us, whichever is longer. Artists Unlimited may terminate this Agreement at any time by providing thirty (30) days' written notice, and users may terminate at any time by deleting their accounts.
If you breach this Agreement, Artists Unlimited may, at its option: (a) terminate this Agreement immediately, with or without advance written notice; (b) suspend, delete, or limit access to your account or any content within it; and (c) to the extent permitted by applicable law, retain any amounts payable to you (which you forfeit).

Reservation of Rights, Severability, Force Majeure: Artists Unlimited reserves all rights not expressly granted herein. Artists Unlimited's rights and remedies are cumulative.

You may not assign this Agreement to any person whose account has been terminated by Artists Unlimited or who is prohibited from registering; any such assignment will be void.
Third Parties: We may provide links to and integrations with websites operated by others. The website operator, not Artists Unlimited, is solely responsible for the content thereof, and your use of each such website will be subject to its terms of service. We may disable integrations with any third party at any time, with or without notice. Except as expressly stated herein, nothing in this Agreement confers any right on any third party.
