Waymark’s legal team works hard to make things simple for you. We’ve summarized our Terms of Service into delightfully simple 1-paragraph and 1-page versions that anyone can read. For your lawyer, there’s a long-form version with the complete terms. Enjoy!
Waymark equips your team with anyone-can-edit video. As a customer, you can watch and create your Productions free of charge, and you can purchase a download license, which gives you the right to use Waymark Productions, in their original form, for business and non-business purposes, including any and all online or TV advertising. Our license covers use on all platforms including online, TV, outdoor events, theaters, etc., though not all aspect ratios will work on every platform. Feel free to contact us to discuss specific plans for your video. Waymark Productions may contain content that you do not own; importantly, you cannot extract such content from a Waymark Production or re-use such content for any purpose, nor can you use Waymark videos for illegal, immoral or other restricted purposes. In general, all purchases on Waymark.com are final and non-refundable, though we will always do our best to “make it right.” Remember, this is just a short summary. For more information, read the 1-page version.
Waymark’s goal is to maximize the value of your Productions by ensuring that we support as many use cases as we can. This summary provides a bit more information beyond our 1-paragraph summary. For more information, read the full version.
• If you purchase a download license, you can show and share your Productions online in nearly any way you’d like, including all forms of paid online advertising; publishing / sharing on 3rd party platforms (Facebook, Youtube, LinkedIn, Snapchat, etc) for business or non-business purposes; and publishing to your website or email list. Additional edits or updates to your Productions may cost extra.
•Your Productions may also be used for out-of-home advertising, theatrical viewings, television broadcast worldwide and for any other platform that exists now or in the future. However, not all templates have the correct aspect ratio for every platform, so make sure to check your platform’s requirements before creating your Production.
• All purchases are final and non-refundable. Subscriptions are auto-renewing on the billing cycle that you select at purchase or as laid out if your terms of service. If you choose to stop a subscription, your service will end and you will not be billed again.
CONTENT AND USAGE RIGHTS
• Waymark Productions may include a combination of content you own, content that we create & own, and content - including video clips, images, music, and sound effects - that we license from other content owners.
• You are responsible for content that you upload, as well as content our technology discovers on your website, social media profiles, and directory listings, and content you add to a Waymark Production via any integration we offer with our product. If you create a Waymark Production using other people’s content, likeness or trademark without permission, you could be sued by the content owner, and you’ll be solely responsible for any damages.
• You cannot extract any content that you do not own from a Waymark Production for any purpose. For example, music that is synced to your video cannot be extracted and synced to other videos. Images that you don’t own cannot be extracted for any purpose. Video clips you do not own cannot be extracted for any purpose. If you do extract assets that you do not own and re-use them, you could be sued by the content owner, and you’ll be responsible for any damages. If you know what a digital fingerprint is, it should go without saying that you cannot remove any digital fingerprints from videos.
• Waymark is intended to empower people, not to hurt people. You cannot create videos intended to defame or otherwise harm others, to promote hate speech or violence in any form, or to impersonate other people or brands. You may not use stock content that includes identifiable people in any form of pornography or ads for tobacco products, adult products, political candidates, etc.
While we strive to make Waymark easy enough that anyone can use it, if you have a reseller account (that is Waymark Co-Brand, Waymark White-Label, or Waymark Integration), you are allowed to use the Waymark Site to create Productions for others, and you may charge a service fee for this work. All of the same rights & restrictions outlined here are intended to apply equally to anyone who pays you for help creating a video, and it is your responsibility to communicate these limitations to them. If you fail to do so and your client acts in violation of these terms, you could be liable for damages. If you have a Waymark Standard account, you may not resell Productions.

You will have the chance to review, edit, and approve the content of all Productions created at your request. You are solely responsible for the final version of such Productions as well as all Content you supply, whether directly by you or obtained by us from searching websites, social media pages, and online directories featuring you.

CONTENT USAGE RIGHTS AND LICENSES
(a) Use of the Auto Personalize tool.
For your convenience, Waymark offers the optional Auto Personalize tool which will populate a template with your content from the internet. By using this tool, you are directing Waymark to search your website, Yelp profile, Facebook page, Google My Business profile, and Zillow listing. Waymark will retrieve from these pages: information about your business, including location, industry, phone number; images; customer reviews; and various other media assets. We attempt to retrieve from these sources only the content that you have uploaded or over which you otherwise have uncontested ownership. However, it is your responsibility to review the content after we have retrieved it and to ensure that it is content to which you have an ownership right or express permission for inclusion in your Production. Waymark does not collect information from these sources in either a “bulk” or “crawling” manner, but only at your specific direction through your choosing to use the Auto Personalize tool. The Waymark Site and our video ad product will work without Auto Personalize and you may choose not to use Auto Personalize. Once you have used Auto Personalize, we will store any content which has been retrieved from the sites mentioned above in order for you to use it again in future Productions, but we will delete this data if you directed us to do so.
(b) Content Obtained From You, Including from Web Site(s), Social Media Page(s), and Online Directory Pages Featuring You.
You are solely responsible for all Content submitted directly by you or obtained by us through your use of Auto Personalize, all of which is referred to as “User Content”. You warrant and represent that you own all right, title and interest, or have sufficient permissions to such User Content for creation of any Productions via the Site and subsequent use of such Productions. You are responsible to review and approve any Productions created via the Site to assure that you have the necessary rights or permissions for your anticipated use of such Productions and all User Content reflected therein, including but not limited to User Content obtained by us from searching web sites, social media pages, and online directories we believe are associated with you.
You further warrant and represent that your User Content does not contain any material or content that is unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, vulgar, harassing, defamatory, obscene, pornographic, indecent, inflammatory, libelous, tortious, hateful, or racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable, or invasive of another's rights including but not limited to rights of copyright, celebrity, publicity, privacy and intellectual property, or otherwise in violation of any federal, state or local law, rule or regulation. Creation of any Productions incorporating your User Content does not indicate that we accept, approve, or endorse such User Content or that such User Content is in compliance with any applicable laws or these Terms or otherwise absolve you of any liability or harm arising from the use of such User Content.
We have no obligation, but reserve the right, to monitor, flag, delete, or refuse to reproduce any User Content we believe may be in violation of these Terms, and to cancel any order(s) based on such User Content.

LEGAL DISPUTES AND ARBITRATION AGREEMENT
INITIAL DISPUTE RESOLUTION
We are available by email at email@example.com to address any concerns you may have regarding your use of the Site. Most concerns may be quickly resolved in this manner. The parties shall use their best efforts to settle any dispute, claim, question, or disagreement directly through consultation and good faith negotiations which shall be a precondition to either party initiating a lawsuit or arbitration.
TERMS OF SERVICE AND BINDING ARBITRATION AGREEMENT
If the parties do not reach an agreed upon solution within a period of thirty (30) days from the time informal dispute resolution is pursued pursuant to Section 15.1 above, then either party may initiate binding arbitration. All claims arising out of or relating to this Agreement (including its formation, performance and breach), the parties’ relationship with each other and/or your use of the Site shall be finally settled by binding arbitration administered by JAMS on a non-confidential basis in accordance with the provisions of its then-effective rules, including its streamlined procedures, excluding any rules or procedures governing or permitting class actions. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve all disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of these Terms of Service, including, but not limited to any claim that all or any part of these Terms of Service is void or voidable. The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in a court under law or in equity. The arbitrator’s award shall be binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. The procedures and rules of the Federal Arbitration Act shall exclusively govern the interpretation and enforcement of this arbitration provision and the parties hereby reject, waive and disclaim the application of any state Arbitration Act.
The JAMS Rules governing the arbitration may be accessed at https://www.jamsadr.com/rules-streamlined-arbitration/, or by calling JAMS at 1.800.352.5267. To the extent the filing fee for the arbitration exceeds the cost of filing a lawsuit, Waymark will pay the additional cost. A request for payment of fees should be submitted to JAMS along with your form for initiating the arbitration, and Waymark will make arrangements to pay all necessary fees directly to JAMS. If the arbitrator finds the arbitration to be non-frivolous, we will pay all of the actual filing and arbitrator fees for the arbitration, provided your claim does not exceed $75,000. The arbitration rules also permit you to recover attorney’s fees in certain cases.
The parties understand that, absent this mandatory provision, they would have the right to sue in court and have a jury trial. They further understand that, in some instances, the costs of arbitration could exceed the costs of litigation and the right to discovery may be more limited in arbitration than in court.
CLASS ACTION WAIVER
The parties further agree that any arbitration shall be conducted in their individual capacities only and not as a class action or other representative action, and the parties expressly waive their right to file a class action or seek relief on a class basis. If any court or arbitrator determines that the class action waiver set forth in this paragraph is void or unenforceable for any reason or that an arbitration can proceed on a class basis, then the arbitration provision set forth above shall be deemed null and void in its entirety and the parties shall be deemed to have not agreed to arbitrate disputes.
EXCEPTION – SMALL CLAIMS COURT CLAIMS
Notwithstanding the parties’ decision to resolve all disputes through arbitration, either party may also seek relief in a small claims court for disputes or claims within the scope of that court’s jurisdiction.
You have the right to opt-out and not be bound by the arbitration and class action waiver provisions set forth in the preceding three paragraphs by sending written notice of your decision to opt-out to the following address: 1555 Broadway, 3rd Floor, Detroit, MI 48226. The notice must be sent within thirty (30) days of registering to use the Site, otherwise you shall be bound to arbitrate disputes in accordance with the terms of those Sections. If you opt-out of these arbitration provisions, Waymark also will not be bound by them.
EXCLUSIVE VENUE FOR LITIGATION
Solely to the extent the arbitration provisions set forth above do not apply, or for purposes of either party enforcing an award granted to it pursuant to arbitration, the parties agree that any litigation between them shall be filed exclusively in state or federal courts located in Detroit, Michigan (except for small claims court actions which may be brought in the county where you reside). The parties expressly consent to exclusive jurisdiction in Detroit, Michigan for any litigation other than small claims court actions. The Parties irrevocably consent to personal jurisdiction in Detroit, Michigan for any litigation and hereby waive, for all purposes, their right to challenge the lack of personal jurisdiction of Detroit, Michigan over any litigation arising in connection with, out of, or as a result of (a) these Terms or the Site, and (b) any acts or omissions of any of the Covered Entities in connection with these Terms or the Site.
