Wipster Terms of Service and Privacy Policy

WIP APP Limited (“Wipster”), welcomes you as a user of the Wipster services.  The Wipster service provides a platform for you to share and review your work-in-progress videos, subject to the following Terms of Service, which may be updated at any time. Any amendments to Wipster’s Terms of Service will be posted on our website (www.wipster.io) (“website”) and will be effective immediately upon such posting. You are responsible for ensuring you are familiar with our latest Terms of Service.

1. Description of Services

  • Wipster provides a platform for video makers to share and review their work-in-progress videos as set out in more detail in this clause (“the Services”).  You may sign up to use the Services by completing the application form on the website or via Facebook or Google and providing Wipster with certain details.  Once you sign up to use the services, Wipster will create an account for you and you will become a member.
  • Once you are a member you will be provided with a login and password to enable you to access the Services.  You agree not to share any of the information or resources provided as part of the Services with any other party except as specified in the Terms of Service , and you will not allow any person not employed by or affiliated with your business to use your log-in information and password to access the Services.  You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of log-in information and for restricting access to your computer, and you agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account or password.

  • As a member you will be entitled to use the Services provided by Wipster as follows:

    • You can upload a video to the Wipster secure website.  Any video uploaded will be encoded by Wipster into multiple formats to support various internet capable devices including desktop browsers, smartphones and tablets.
    • You will be able to invite a number of people to view the video (each called a “Reviewer”).  Wipster will send each Reviewer an individual link to the video which you wish to invite them to review which will enable the Reviewer to view the video and comment on that video.  The email sent to each Reviewer will identify you as the person who invited them to review the relevant video, brief details of the video and will enable you and Wipster to identify each Reviewer’s comments.
    • Each Reviewer may comment and/or provide feedback on the particular video sent to them at any particular point in that video.  You will be advised when a comment has been made on your video and you will be able to view each comment and respond to it.
    • All Reviewers are able to see comments made on the video.
    • All Reviewer comments are collated into a “to do” list which will only be visible and available to the member who posted the original video
       
  • The Services are subject to any modifications, improvements, and/or variations that may be made to the Services by Wipster.  Any such modifications, improvements or variations will be advised to you from time to time.

2. Reviewers

  • Wipster will send invitations to review a particular video to each Reviewer you identify.  Wipster is not responsible for checking or verifying in any way the identity of contact details of any Reviewer.  You, as a member, have sole responsibility for the email addresses or other contact details for each Reviewer that you invite to view and comment on any of your work-in-progress videos.
     
  • Because one of the major attractions of the Services is the ease of use, Wipster does not require any Reviewer to login, use a password, or otherwise identify themselves before accessing the link to any video sent to them.  You expressly acknowledge this and agree to all invited Reviewers being able to access any of your videos they are invited to review in this manner.
     
  • Wipster will include a disclaimer and warning in all emails, or other communications, sent to a Reviewer inviting them to review a particular video stating that if they do not know the member who sent the invite to them they are not permitted to review the video or comment on it, that they may not forward the link or video to any other person, and that they are responsible for the content of any comments that they make.  However, Wipster and its subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, employees and agents expressly exclude any liability including but not limited to liability for breach of confidentiality, defamation, for:
    • an invitation being sent to someone not intended to be a Reviewer as a result of an incorrect email address and/or other method of contact for the Reviewer;
    • any comments made by any Reviewer whatsoever, including without limitation any comments that are or may be defamatory; or
    • any Reviewer forwarding the link and/or video to any other person.
       
  • You as a member expressly acknowledge the above limitations and agree that you will take all necessary steps to ensure that you are satisfied that the people that you invite to review your videos are advised accordingly and will comply with your directions. The exclusion of liability in this clause does not limit anything in clause 12 and 13 of these Terms of Service.
