Using Vivoom Content

The basics

I'd like to use Vivoom in my project. What's the first thing I should know?

To determine if your proposed use of Content is acceptable, you should first read closely the applicable Terms of Service:

Your use of Content, as defined in the Terms of Service, in anything from marketing and promotional materials to films and books is first and foremost governed by the license provided in the applicable Terms of Service for the product. In certain circumstances, Vivoom may be able to grant you a broader license to use the Content in a manner not covered in the Terms of Service. Plus, apart from any license granted to you by Vivoom, your use of Content may be acceptable under principles of "fair use."

Fair use is a concept under copyright law in the U.S. that, generally speaking, permits you to use a copyrighted work in certain ways without obtaining a license from the copyright holder. There are a variety of factors that affect whether your use of Content would be considered fair use, including the purpose and character of your use, the nature of the copyrighted work, the amount of the copyrighted material used, and the effect of your use upon the potential market for the copyrighted work. 

Please do not request that we interpret whether your use of Content is fair use. Vivoom cannot tell you if your use of Content from our products would be fair use or would be considered fair dealing; these are legal analyses that depend on all of the specific facts of your proposed use. We suggest you speak with an attorney if you have questions regarding fair use of copyrighted works.

Can you give me permission to show your content without attribution, or put the attribution at the end of my book/movie/TV show?

Without exception, we require attribution when Content is shown. Please do not ask to negotiate this requirement. See our attribution page for more information.

I have questions about how to attribute your Content. Do you have a guide?

Yes—please see our attribution guidelines page.

Can you sign an agreement or letter indicating I have permission to use your imagery?

Due to limited resources and high demand, we are unable to sign any letter or contract specifying that your project or use has our explicit permission. The only exception is when you apply for a television and film broadcast license.

I'd like to publicize the work I've created using Content from Vivoom. Can I send out a press release?

Please do not release any publicity materials that refer to Vivoom or its partners, unless you have prior written approval from us. Contact us to find out more.

May I alter your imagery for my project?

Any use of Vivoom content must reflect how the products and imagery would look online. For example, you are not allowed to make any changes (e.g. delete, blur, etc.) to our products or imagery that would make these items look genuinely different.

I'd like to use one of your product logos. Can I?

If you'd like to feature one of our product logos in a commercial, TV show or film, please contact us.

Using Vivoom in print

I'd like to use your Content in print. What do I need to know?

First, review the basics above, which apply to all uses of our Vivoom. Then continue with the guidance in this section.

All uses must properly show attribution to Vivoom. Please see our attribution page for more information.

When using Vivoom content in print, any images used must reflect how they would look on online or in app. For example, you are not allowed to make any changes (e.g. delete, blur, etc.) to our products that would make them look genuinely different. This includes, but is not limited to, adding clouds or other natural elements, altered user-interfaces, and modification that do not appear in the actual product.

No explicit permission is required for your print project. We are unable to sign any letter or contract specifying that your project has our explicit permission.

I need high-resolution images for my print project. Can you provide them?

We cannot provide high-resolution or vector screen captures of Vivoom. If you have a question about this please contact us.

I'd like to use your Content in a presentation. Can I?

You may use our Vivoom content in internal reports, presentations, proposals, and other related professional documents. We request you still retain attribution to Vivoom. Please see our attribution page for more information.

Using Vivoom Content in television, film and online video

I'd like to use your Vivoom Content in my TV show or film. What do I need to know?

First, review the basics above, which apply to all uses of Vivoom content. Then continue with the guidance in this section.

Use of our Content on television or in film requires that you accept the terms of our free broadcast license agreement. Please send us your information, and we'll send you an e-mail to confirm whether you qualify and provide next steps. This agreement is only for television and film uses; it is not required for video projects distributed online.

Note that in all uses, you must show attribution to Vivoom on-screen at the time the Content is shown. You may not move the attribution to the end credits or fade it out after a few seconds. We cannot grant an exception to this requirement under any circumstance. Please see our attribution page for more information.

How does the broadcast license process work?

First, you'll need to apply for our free broadcast license. We'll then be in touch via e-mail with a copy of our agreement for your signature.

What if I need to renew my broadcast license?

To renew, please submit your information via the application form.

My film or TV show includes a scene in which an actor or interview subject uses Your Vivoom Application. Do I need your permission to use this scene?

You do not need our explicit permission or a broadcast license if you are demonstrating the use of the Vivoom product as such, for example an interview subject demonstrating how they used Vivoom or an actor using Vivoom for iOS or Android on her phone. No additional attribution is required on-screen; just film the product, with attribution already included, as such.

I'd like to use your Content in a video I'm distributing online. What do I need to know?

In all online video cases, you must show attribution to Vivoom on-screen at the time the content is shown. You may not move the attribution to the end credits or fade it out after a few seconds. We cannot grant an exception to this requirement under any circumstance. Please see our attribution page for more information.

No explicit permission is required for your online video project. We are unable to sign any letter or contract specifying that your project has our explicit permission.

Using Vivoom on the web or in applications

I'd like to link to your Vivoom App on my website. Can I?

Feel free to use a hyperlink on your website or within your application to send users to Vivoom — we appreciate it! Our one request is that you do not use the Vivoom logo as the hyperlink. Please just use text or another image of your choice.

Using Vivoom in advertisements

I'd like to use your Content in an advertisement (print or digital). What do I need to know?

First, review the basics above, which apply to all uses of our content. Then continue with the guidance in this section.

In all cases, you must properly show attribution to Vivoom listed with the imagery. Please see our attribution page for more information.

Any images used must reflect how they would look on online. For example, you are not allowed to make any changes (e.g. delete, blur, etc.) to our products that would make them look genuinely different. This includes, but is not limited to, adding images, altered user-interfaces, and modification that do not appear in the actual product.

No explicit permission is required for your ad project. We are unable to sign any letter or contract specifying that your project has our explicit permission.
