DigitalThrottle.tv only utilizes professionally-produced video content. Our first priority is to protect the ownership rights of your valuable content. This page details how we will use your content and steps you can take to protect your ownership. At the bottom of this page is a link to acknowledge your acceptance of these terms. Upon accepting these terms, we will provide you access and instructions on how to upload video content into our library. Our confirmation will arrive via email, typically within 48 hours of receiving your acceptance.
Summary: Digital Throttle has developed proprietary online video players (the “Video Players”) for use on a network of websites and seeks to incorporate video content from you (the “Licensor”). Your content will be available to sites in our network and to any person that embeds our player within a website page(s) and/or their social media pages. Your acceptance of these terms grants us a non-exclusive, limited license for the display, posting and publication of your content within our Video Players. Your acceptance of these terms grants us the right, but not the obligation, to use any videos you provide us.
Ownership: You as the Licensor shall retain ownership and other intellectual property rights with respect to the Licensed Content you agree to furnish. You also acknowledge that you have the right to furnish video content and that the videos do not conflict or infringe upon the rights of any other third parties.
Term: Unless you remove or instruct us to remove video content, you are giving us a perpetual license to utilize your content in our video players. As the sole content owner and Licensor, you have complete rights to remove content from our library and any Video Players displaying your content at any time. We also reserve the right to terminate your access to our systems at any time without any notice provided.
How We Obtain Your Content: Upon acceptance of these terms, you may provide us content as follows:
- If you have videos on a YouTube® channel we can automatically download all videos. Only select this method if you give us permission to use ALL videos currently in your YouTube® account and those you upload in the future. Click Here to learn more about this process.
- Upload your source files directly into our media library. We will provide you access to our content uploading system where you can simply upload individual files directly into our media library.
How to Monitor Your Content: You will always have access to view all your videos in our library and various reports.
Content Limitations: We will NEVER edit, alter, crop or modify your furnished video content. We will assign a series of unique classification codes to each video to help target specific sites. On rare occasions, we may edit text information such as titles or descriptions to correct typos or enhance the presentation of your content. Your videos will be played only within our proprietary Video Players and never in “raw” source-code form. Please note some Video Players display a small watermark representing the site, but the watermark is programmed into the player and doesn’t alter your content.
Copyright Policy: You may elect to declare ownership of the licensed Video Content through a watermark or credits within the Video Content. We suggest placing your watermark on the lower right corner. Additionally the Video Players display an information icon which hyperlinks to our copyright policy, pursuant to 17 U.S.C § 1512(c)(2) as found at http://www.digitalthrottle.tv/copyrightpolicy. This policy instructs third parties to notify us of potential copyright claims, violations or other infringements. Upon receipt of any such claims, we will notify you of the claim(s) and suspend use of the named Content within five (5) business days.
Service Fee: There is no charge for furnishing your video content to us. All hosting and streaming fees are paid entirely by Digital Throttle.
Advertising: We may display paid advertising in conjunction with your video content. All earnings from paid advertising is shared by Digital Throttle and sites utilizing our proprietary video players. Please note we will not activate videos featuring advertising and sponsorship markings not related to the underlying video content.
