Terms of Service Agreement

The gist:

We (the people at Viidea) run Educational video hosting service through which we promote knowledge preservation and access. If you have videos of talks that you wish to publish online, we would love for you to use our service. As our client, you will get your very own video web site where you can upload and publish videos and slides at your will. We will give you as much control and ownership over what goes on your site as possible and encourage you to express yourself freely. But we expect you to be responsible in what you publish. In particular, make sure that none of the prohibited items listed below appear on your site or get linked to from your site (things like spam, viruses, or hate content).

We enjoy hosting videos of lectures, tutorials or other talks of educational, informational or business nature. You can check our page on example video sites to get a sense of the types of websites that are welcome on our service. Our hosting plans start with a 30 day free-trial period which is later converted into a paid site subscription for which we also offer upgrades, custom feature development and additional video storage space.

If you find a Viidea hosted site that you believe violates our terms of service, please contact us at info@viidea.com.
