Terms and Agreement
The Spark Motion Website, (the “Site”) is an internet based software application owned by Spark Motion, Inc, a Maryland Corporation (references to “we” “us” and “our” shall refer to such entity) that acts as a conduit for the transmission and private viewing of video and audio content (“Content”) between registered users of the Site and the storage of such content using a cloud-based platform (the “Application”). The Application permits the recording of voice over the videos and limited editing, with its primary purpose being to enhance sports performance or provide physical therapy remotely via the internet. A trainer, coach, or physical therapist (“Professional User”) may have their clients, students, or patients, as the case may be (“Personal Users”), upload a video of themselves performing an activity. The Professional User would then evaluate and dissect the movements with the aid of the Application, record his feedback/instructive comments with a voice overlay, and then send the video back to the Personal User.
The Professional User shall have the option of charging the Personal User (the “Ecommerce Option”) for their Screen Recorded Video (SRV)..
You must be at least thirteen (13) years of age and a resident of the United States to use this Site. All others are prohibited from using the Site. You must be at least 18 years of age to interact with a Professional User using the Ecommerce Option. To use the Site, you will be required to create an account with a username and password and provide information to us about yourself. You have the option of signing up as a Professional User or as a Personal User. You should select Professional User if you intend to use the Application to create SRV’s. If you will be uploading personal videos and merely viewing SRV’s created by a Professional User, you should select a Personal User account. Professional Users who wish to use the Ecommerce Option shall be billed the standard monthly subscription fee of nineteen dollars and 99/100 Dollars ($19.99) plus fifteen percent (7%) of whatever price is paid by their Personal Users to view the SRV’s (which will be forwarded to us on a per transaction basis). Personal Users may use the Site at no charge other than what is billed by a Professional User, if applicable. All pricing is subject to change at the sole discretion of Spark Motion Inc.
You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account username and password.
