You must be at least 13 years old to use the VW Service. If you are at least 13, but are still a minor (this depends on where you live), you must have your parent or legal guardian's permission to use the Vimeo Service. Please have him or her read this Agreement with you.
Even if you are old enough to use the VW Service and/or have your parent's or guardian's permission, some of the content available within the VW Service may not be appropriate for you. Some content may contain "R-rated" material, nudity, profanity, and mature subject matter. If you are under 18, do not view such content.

2. License

VW grants you a limited, non-exclusive license to access and use the VW Service for your own personal, non-commercial purposes. This includes the right to view content available on the VW Service. This license is personal to you and may not be assigned or sublicensed to anyone else.

You may not use the VW Service for commercial purposes unless
  • You are a VW PRO or higher subscriber, in which case you may use and access the VW Service for commercial and non-commercial purposes, subject to compliance with the VW Guidelines; or

  • You are a small-scale independent production company, non-profit, or artist, in which case you may use the VW Service to showcase or promote your own creative works.


    Except as expressly permitted by VW in writing, you will not scrape, reproduce, redistribute, sell, create derivative works from, decompile, reverse engineer, or disassemble the VW Service or any source code therein.

    3. Privacy

    Your privacy rights are set forth in our Privacy Policy, which forms a part of this Agreement. Please review the Privacy Policy to learn about:
  • What information we may collect about you;

  • What we use that information for; and

  • With whom we share that information.

  • 4. Membership


    To fully use the VW Service, you must register as a member by providing a user name, password, and valid email address. You must provide complete and accurate registration information to VW and notify us if your information changes. If you are a business, government, or non-profit entity, the person whose email address is associated with the account must have the authority to bind the entity to this Agreement.
    We encourage you to use your real name. If you are a business, government, or non-profit entity, you must use the actual name of your organization. You may not use someone else's name, a name that violates any third party right, or a name that is obscene or otherwise objectionable.

    You are responsible for all activity that occurs under your account, including any activity by authorized or unauthorized users. You must not allow others to use your account credentials and you must safeguard the confidentiality of those credentials. If you are using a computer that others have access to, you must log out of your account after using the VW Service. If you become aware of an unauthorized access to your account, you must change your password and notify us immediately.
    If you are a PRO or Business subscriber, you may grant access to your account to other VW members subject to a seat limit. You are responsible for the actions of those persons insofar as your account is concerned. If you are a VW member who has been granted access to a PRO or Business account, you must comply with the terms of this Agreement in accessing that account.

    5. Subscriptions

    In addition to offering Basic (free) VW memberships, we offer paid subscriptions. Please see our subscription pages for current features and pricing. Features and prices are subject to change. Storage limits are calculated based upon source files. We reserve the right to charge for excessive use of bandwidth where plays occur on third-party sites and applications outside the native VW player or apps. Anyone who wishes to obtain storage capacity beyond what is offered with a particular subscription, or additional bandwidth for applications not using the VW player may request a custom account by contacting us Additional terms and conditions (to be shown prior to purchase) apply to custom accounts. All fees may be subject to taxes.
    Users who purchase annual subscriptions have thirty (30) days after their purchase to cancel and receive a full refund. Users who purchase monthly subscriptions have five (5) days after purchase to cancel and receive a full refund. In the case of Live subscription products, refunds are not available if the user has exceeded the storage or bandwidth threshold set forth in the refund policy presented at the time of purchase. After the cancelation period ends, all purchases are final and all fees paid are non-refundable, even if your account is later terminated by VW. If your account is terminated due to your breach of this Agreement during the relevant cancelation period, you will not be refunded. If you have questions, please contact us.
    Subject to the terms hereof, you may choose to renew your subscription at the end of the subscription period. By default, all subscriptions are set to automatically renew for the same period of time as the original subscription. You may decline to renew at any time prior to the commencement of a renewal subscription. VW reserves the right to deny subscriptions, renewals, and other purchases for any reason. Unused storage, plays, and other limits do not roll over to subsequent subscription periods.
    When a paid subscription ends, the account automatically becomes a Basic (free) account and VW may disable access to or delete any content to comply with Basic account limits. If you're using VW for commercial purposes, you will need to maintain a VW PRO or higher plan to continue hosting your videos. Your account and its content may be deleted if your subscription is not renewed.

    6.Account Deletion

    You may delete your account at any time. Basic accounts may be deleted from the VW Service if they remain inactive (i.e., the user fails to log in) for a continuous period of at least six (6) months. Paid subscription accounts will remain active until the end of the subscription term and any renewal term.
    VW may suspend, disable, or delete your account (or any part thereof) or block or remove any content you submitted if VW determines that you have violated any provision of this Agreement or that your conduct or content would tend to damage VW reputation and goodwill. If VW deletes your account for the foregoing reasons, you may not re-register for the VW Service. VW may block your email address and Internet protocol address to prevent further registration.
