Video Player Terms of Service
Terms of Service
As a Mediavine, Inc. (“Mediavine” or “we” or “us”) Publisher, you have access to the Mediavine Video Player located in your Dashboard. By using the Mediavine Video Player, you agree to the following terms and conditions (the “Video Player Terms of Service”). If you do not agree to these terms, please do not use the Video Player.
From time to time we may update the Video Player Terms of Service. If we do this, we will post the changes on this page and will indicate at the top of this page the date these terms were last revised. We will also notify you in an email notification to the email address we have on file for you. Any such changes will become effective no earlier than fourteen (14) days after they are posted, except that changes addressing new functions of the Video Player or changes made for legal reasons will be effective immediately. Your continued use of the Video Player after the date of any such changes become effective constitutes your acceptance of the new Video Player Terms of Service.
All capitalized terms in the Video Player Terms of Service have the same definitions as in the Publisher Agreement, unless otherwise indicated. The terms of the Publisher Agreement continue to apply. In the event of a conflict between the Video Player Terms of Service and the Publisher Agreement, the Publisher Agreement will govern.
The Video Player is a service provided to Publishers to assist in monetizing videos on the Property. The Video Player permits a Publisher to create an embeddable code that will display a video on the Property.
Mediavine reserves the right to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Video Player (or any part thereof) with or without notice. You agree that Mediavine will not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of the Video Player.

The Video Player is offered by Mediavine from its facilities in the United States of America. Mediavine makes no representations that the Video Player is appropriate or available for use in other locations. Those who access the Video Player from other jurisdictions are responsible for compliance with local law.
This Agreement will be governed by the laws of the State of Florida, without reference to its conflict of law principles and jurisdiction of any and all such disputes will lie in the state and federal courts sitting in Palm Beach County, Florida. Publisher consents to personal jurisdiction in the state and federal courts located therein and hereby waives all defenses of lack of personal jurisdiction and forum non-conveniens.
You agree that Mediavine, in its sole discretion, may suspend or terminate your use of the Video Player and remove and discard any content within the Video Player, for any reason, including, without limitation, if Mediavine believes that you have violated or acted inconsistently with the letter or spirit of the Video Player Terms of Service. Any suspected fraudulent, abusive or illegal activity that may be grounds for termination of your use of Video Player, may be referred to appropriate law enforcement authorities. Mediavine may also in its sole discretion and at any time, discontinue providing the Video Player, or any part thereof, with or without notice. You agree that any termination of your access to the Video Player under any provision of the Video Player Terms of Service may be effected without prior notice, and acknowledge and agree that Mediavine may immediately deactivate or delete your account and all related information and files in your account and/or bar any further access to such files or the Video Player. Further, you agree that Mediavine will not be liable to you or any third party for any termination of your access to the Video Player.
The Video Player Terms of Service constitute the entire agreement between you and Mediavine related to your use of the Video Player and govern your use of the Video Player, superseding any prior agreements between you and Mediavine with respect to the Video Player. All other agreements, including, but not limited to, the Publisher Agreement, continue to apply. You also may be subject to additional terms and conditions that may apply when you use other Mediavine services. The failure of Mediavine to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the Video Player Terms of Service will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of the Video Player Terms of Service is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of the Video Player Terms of Service remain in full force and effect. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of the Video Player or the Video Player Terms of Service must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred. A printed version of this Agreement and of any notice given in electronic form will be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to this Agreement to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form. You may not assign this Video Player Terms of Service without the prior written consent of Mediavine, but Mediavine may assign or transfer this Video Player Terms of Service, in whole or in part, without restriction. The section titles in the Video Player Terms of Service are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. Notices to you may be made via either email or regular mail. Mediavine may also provide notices to you of changes to the Video Player Terms of Service or other matters by displaying notices or links to notices generally through your Dashboard.
