Effective as of March 3, 2021
Welcome to Conviva!
To access and use the Services, you must have initially registered by creating a user profile, during which you accepted these Terms. Your continued use of, and access and use on each subsequent visit to, the Services constitutes continuing agreement to these Terms as they may be revised from time to time. If you are using the Services on behalf of an organization, you are agreeing to these Terms for that organization and promising to Conviva that you have the authority to bind that organization to these Terms (in which event, "you" and "your" will refer to that organization) unless that organization has a separate binding contract in effect with Conviva, in which event the terms of that contract will govern your use of the Services.
We reserve the right to modify these Terms. We will post the most current version of these Terms on Conviva’s Web portal known as Pulse (“Pulse”) or you can also access them at https://pulse.conviva.com/legal/#terms. If we make material changes to these Terms, we will post the updated version of the Terms in Pulse and at the above link. If you do not accept the changes, you must stop using the Services. Your continued use of the Services after we publish our changes to these Terms means that you are consenting to the updated terms.
By registering with Conviva or signing up for the Services, you understand that we may send you (including via email) information regarding the Services, such as: (a) notices about your use of the Services, including notices of violations of use; (b) updates to the Services and new features or products; and (c) promotional information and materials regarding Conviva’s products and services. If you do not wish to receive promotion information, please contact Conviva at firstname.lastname@example.org. Notices emailed to you will be considered given and received when the email is sent. If you don't consent to receive notices (other than promotional materials) electronically, you must stop using the Services.
To access certain Services including the Insights Services (as defined below), you must have been invited by Conviva or your company’s administrative lead(s), or if solely accessing Conviva’s Developer Community, you can initiate your registration by visiting https://community.conviva.com/dpRegister/create. Conviva will initially set up the applicable company administrative lead(s) (each, an “Admin User”). If accessing Insights Services, multiple Admin Users may be set up, the identity and number of which depend on the needs of the Customer and its video player configurations. Such Admin User(s) may then designate and invite regular users to use the Insights Services (Admin Users and regular users are referred to collectively and individually as “User” unless specified otherwise).
When registering for any of our Services, you must create a User profile and establish User credentials to access and use the Services. Your credentials consist of a User ID (“UID”), which must be the fixed business email address included in the authorization and/or invitation, and a password (together “registration” and “credentials”).
User login credentials and requirements:
a. To access and use certain of the Services, called the “Insights Services”, which includes but is not limited to Experience Insights, Precision, Experience Benchmarks, Ad Insights, Content Insights and other Insights Services, you must be personnel of a current or prospective customer with Conviva’s authorization to access the Insights Services. The Insights Services may be accessed through Pulse.
b. Social Insights Services. Social Insights Service is an analytics solution that provides consumption and audience intelligence for video playback on social platforms. Through API calls to social platforms (including Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Twitter and Snapchat), metrics and metadata are obtained regarding videos posted by you on these social platforms. If you register for a Social Insights Services account, you will have the ability to authenticate one or more of your social accounts (each, a “Social Account”). This will enable Conviva to import data from the Social Account(s) in order to analyze and add certain metrics and to deliver the Social Insights Services. At all times, you shall remain responsible for complying with the terms of service and other policies of the Social Account. Authentication is necessary to provide the Social Insights Services. If your Social Account is not authenticated or for any reason your Social Account is terminated, suspended or inoperable, then Conviva will be unable to provide you with the Social Insights Services, for which Conviva bears no responsibility. You shall remain the owner of the data transferred from your authenticated Social Account(s) (“User Content”), and you hereby grant Conviva a worldwide, non-exclusive, perpetual, transferable, royalty-free and sublicensable right and license to use, copy, distribute, prepare derivative works of, modify, transfer and publish the User Content, in whole or in part, to provide you with the Social Insights Services and to use anonymized and aggregated aspects of the User Content, such that you are not identified or identifiable, to provide industry-level research and benchmark data across pre-defined industry categories. The rights you grant in this section, including the license, survive the termination of this Agreement and your use of the Social Insights Services.
The Services include access to: (a) Conviva’s Developer Community (“Developer Community”), which is an online resource containing Conviva proprietary materials and information to assist authorized parties with integrating, and validating integrations of, video players with the Insights Services; and (b) Conviva’s Developer Tools (“Developer Tools”), which is an online resource containing software tools and other applications used for integrating, and validating integrations of, video players with the Insights Services. You may access and use the Developer Community and the Developer Tools, including all of the materials, software and information contained or located therein, solely for the purposes of performing or supporting the integration or validation of Conviva technology with the video player(s) of a current or prospective Conviva customer or a Conviva-authorized business development partner. You may also be granted registration, access and use rights as either personnel of an authorized third-party developer, or personnel of a current or prospective Conviva customer.
So that Conviva may test and validate that the video players in your device applications have been integrated with the Services (“Device Applications”), you may be required to provide to Conviva sample Device Applications or access thereto. In such case, you grant Conviva a limited, non-exclusive, fully-paid, royalty-free, worldwide, non-transferable license to use the sample Device Applications for the purposes of testing and validating that the video player(s) included in those Device Applications have been properly integrated with the Services.
If you have entered into a Customer Agreement or similar agreement for Conviva’s products and services (“Customer Agreement”)”), then your use of the Services shall be governed by and subject to the Customer Agreement (in addition to the other sections of these Terms) and this Section 6 shall not apply to you. If you have not entered into a Customer Agreement, then your use of the Services shall be governed by and subject to this Section 6 (in addition to the other sections of these Terms).
