Veam General Guidelines
1. General Guidelines
A. By using or visiting the Veam website, providing content to Veam, or using any Veam products, software, data feeds, and/or services (collectively, the "Services"), in addition to the Terms of Service, you agree to the following general guidelines:
i. Illegal purposes. Veam is not for illegal activities, including, but not limited to, child exploitation, copyright infringement, and any other illegal activities. If this describes your content, even if it's a video of yourself, don't post it on Veam or use products and services of Veam. Also, be advised that we will report child exploitation.
ii. Respect copyright. Only upload content that you made or that you are authorized to use and to distribute. For instance, you are not allowed to do the following: (1) upload videos that you did not make, unless you have the necessary authorizations; or (2) use content (without the necessary authorizations) in your videos that someone else owns the copyright to, e.g., music tracks, snippets of copyrighted programs, or videos made by other users.
iii. Unacceptable behavior. Things like predatory behavior, stalking, threats, harassment, intimidation, invading privacy, revealing other people's personal information, and inciting others to commit violent acts or to violate the Terms of Service are taken very seriously. Anyone caught doing these things may be permanently banned from Veam and from using products and services of Veam.
iv. Everyone hates spam. Don't create misleading descriptions, tags, titles or thumbnails in order to increase views or purchases.
Please take these guidelines seriously and take them to heart. Don't try to look for loopholes around the guidelines just understand them and try to respect the spirit in which they were created. If you do not agree to any of these General Guidelines or the Terms of Service, please do not use the Services.
B. We enforce these guidelines. Veam staff reviews content to determine whether they violate our General Guidelines or Terms of Service. When they do, we remove them. Sometimes a video doesn't violate our General Guidelines or Terms of Service, but may not be appropriate for everyone. These videos may be age-restricted. Accounts are penalized for violations of the General Guidelines and Terms of Service and serious or repeated violations can lead to account termination. If your account is terminated, you won't be allowed to create any new accounts.
2. Digital Millennium Copyright Act
One of the ways you can help us in enforcing these guidelines is by notifying us of any Content, as defined in the Terms of Service, that may be infringing upon your copyright by following the procedure stated below.
A. If you are a copyright owner or an agent thereof and believe that any Content infringes upon your copyrights, you may submit a notification pursuant to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act ("DMCA") by providing our Copyright Agent with the following information in writing (see 17 U.S.C 512(c)(3) for further detail):
i. A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed;
ii. Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works at a single online site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that site;
iii. Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled and information reasonably sufficient to permit the service provider to locate the material;
iv. Information reasonably sufficient to permit the service provider to contact you, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail;
v. A statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and
vi. A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that you are authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
B. Veam's designated Copyright Agent to receive notifications of claimed infringement is name: Veam Copyright Agent, address: 228 Hamilton Avenue, Palo Alto, CA94301, email: firstname.lastname@example.org . For clarity, only DMCA notices should go to the Copyright Agent; any other feedback, comments, requests for technical support, and other communications should be directed to Veam customer service. You acknowledge that if you fail to comply with all of the requirements of this Section 5(D), your DMCA notice may not be valid.
C. Counter-Notice. If you believe that your Content that was removed (or to which access was disabled) is not infringing, or that you have the authorization from the copyright owner, the copyright owner's agent, or pursuant to the law, to post and use the material in your Content, you may send a counter-notice containing the following information to the Copyright Agent:
i. Your physical or electronic signature;
ii. Identification of the Content that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the Content appeared before it was removed or disabled;
iii. A statement under penalty of perjury that you have a good faith belief that the Content was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or a misidentification of the Content; and
iv. Your name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address, a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the federal court in San Francisco, California, and a statement that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement.
D. If a counter-notice is received by the Copyright Agent, Veam may send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing that person that it may replace the removed Content or cease disabling it in 10 business days. Unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the Content provider, member or user, the removed Content may be replaced, or access to it restored, in 10 to 14 business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice, at Veam's sole discretion.
A. Personal Information
i. Your Veam Account. For some activities on Veam, like uploading videos, you need a Veam Account. We ask for some personal information when you create an account, including your email address and a password, which is used to protect your account from unauthorized access. A Veam Account, additionally, allows you to access other services offered by Veam that require registration.
ii. Usage Information. When you use Veam, we may record information about your usage of the site, such as the channels, groups and favorites you subscribe to, which other users you communicate with, the videos you watch, the frequency and size of data transfers, and information you display about yourself as well as information you click on in Veam (including UI elements, settings). If you are logged in, we may associate that information with your Veam Account. In order to ensure the quality of our service to you, we may place a tag (also called a "web beacon") in HTML-based customer support emails or other communications with you in order to confirm delivery.
iii. Content Uploaded to Site. Any personal information or video content that you voluntarily disclose online (e.g., video comments, your profile page) may be collected and used by others. If you download an uploader program, your copy may include a unique application number. This application number and information about your installation of the uploader program (e.g., version number and language) may be sent to Veam when the uploader program checks for updates and will be used to update your version of the uploader program.
i. If you submit personal information to Veam, we may use that information to operate, maintain, and improve the features and functionality of Veam, and to process any flagging activity or other communication you send to us.
ii. We do not use your email address or other personal information to send commercial or marketing messages without your consent. We may use your email address without further consent for non-marketing or administrative purposes (such as notifying you of major Veam changes or for customer service purposes).
C. Information That is Publicly Available
i. When you create a Veam Account, some information about your Veam Account and your account activity will be provided to other users of Veam. This may include the date you opened your Veam Account, the date you last logged into your Veam Account, your age (if you choose to make it public), the country and the number of videos you have watched and/or uploaded.
ii. Your Veam Account name, not your email address, may be displayed to other users when you engage in certain activities on Veam, such as when you upload videos or send messages through Veam. Other users can contact you by leaving a message or comment on the site.
iii. Any videos that you submit to Veam may be redistributed, according to the Terms of Service, through the internet and other media channels, and may be viewed by other Veam users or the general public.
iv. You may also choose to add personal information which may include your name, gender, profile picture or other details, that may be visible to other users of Veam Account. If you choose to add certain features to your Veam Account, then these features and your activity associated with these features may be displayed to other users and may be aggregated and shared with your friends or other users. Such shared activity may include your favorite videos, videos you rated and videos that you have uploaded.
D. Your Choices
i. If you have a Veam Account, you may update or correct your personal profile information, email preferences and privacy settings at any time by visiting your account profile page.
ii. You may control the information that is available to other users at any time by editing your Veam Account.
iii. You may, of course, decline to submit personal information through Veam, in which case you can still upload videos and explore Veam, but Veam may not be able to provide certain services to you. Some Veam features for processing payments, for providing advertisements, or for advanced Veam features may use other third-party services, e.g., Paypal, Amazon Payments, Google Checkout, Microsoft PubCenter, or Google AdSense. The privacy notices of those third-party services govern the use of your personal information associated with them.
E. Advertising on Veam
i. Veam strives to provide you with relevant and useful advertising and we may use third-party ad serving systems, to do so. We may use a range of information including cookies, web beacons, IP addresses, usage data and other non-personal information about your computer or device (such as browser type and operating system) to provide you with relevant advertising. While you are logged in or logged out of your Veam Account, we may also show you advertising based on non-personally identifiable information you have provided to us in your Veam Account.
ii. We help advertisers and publishers serve and manage ads on this site and other third-party websites. Advertisers may serve ads based on interests and demographic categories associated with non-personally identifiable online activity, such as videos viewed, frequency of uploading or activity on other sites. Advertisers may also serve ads to you based on previous activity on that advertiser's website or based on non-personally identifiable information from other companies. This non-personally identifiable information is held separately from your Veam Account data, or other personally identifying information in our possession.
