Plans, Fees and Subscriptions
Viddyad offers you the option of subscribing to different plans with your Viddyad account. These plans offer different functionality or quotas for using different aspects of VIddyad.com and related services.
Viddyad may offer a free standard plan, which requires no payment but may have restricted functionality or other limitations. By using the free plan you may create and share preview videos on Viddyad.com. Preview videos are created with lower resolution than final vidoes and may be watermarked or have a sting/bumper message for Viddyad.com included. Users on the free plan may have restricted functionality and may not download preview videos or remove watermarks or other messages using third party software or by any other means. Free plans do not include permission to resell any content created or purchased on Viddyad.com
Free accounts may have their functionality altered or may be terminated at any time without notice. Saved videos or uploaded media for users on free accounts may also be deleted if the user account has remained inactive for a period of 90 days.
Viddyad may offer paid subscription plans which include greater functionality and quotas than the free plan. You may subscribe to these plans by paying monthly or annual fees by credit or other digital transaction systems.
Paid plans will allow you to create preview videos in the same manner as the free plan, but with greater functionality, more features and different quotas which may include video upgrades and a wider content selection. Extra charges may still apply to premium stock image and video content and download functionality. Paid plans do not include permisision to resell any content created or purchased via Viddyad.com unless explicity stated.
Viddyad may change fees and functionality associated with paid plans for the next subscription period. Should there be a change to fees or a significant change in functionality, you will be informed in advance via email. In event that agreed payments are not made or a subscription is cancelled, functionality may be reduced and content generated using paid plan functionality may become unavailable until such as the subscription is renewed.
You may subscribe to the Viddyad Reseller plans if you intend to resell Viddyad.com videos to others. The reseller account will operate in a similar manner to the standard paid plans but may include additional functionality to help share and sell videos online. Users may only resell with Viddyad videos if they are subscribed to a reseller plan, or have an equivalent agreement in place with Viddyad. Viddyad reserves the right to restrict access to reseller plans. Reseller plans are subject to Viddyad’s Reseller terms and conditions.
Pay & GO / Free plan videos
You may choose to upgrade a single video without subscribing to Viddyad. In this instance, a one-time fee is paid for each video, with no further automated billing setup. Videos purchased in this manner are not eligible for resale unless previously agreed with Viddyad.
Videos purchased using the Pay & Go model or on the free plan model may be subjected to restricted functionality following a period of 90 days after purchase. Functionality that may be restricted after this time includes, but is not limited to:
- export options
After this period, functionality may be restored and maintained by subscribing to a paid plan at Viddyad.com.
Monthly/annual subscriptions and recurring payments
Subscription plans may be changed on a monthly or annual basis. On subscribing you will be charged immediately the monthly or annual value of the plan as per duration selected and your card or other payment method will be billed automatically each month or year, depending on the type of subscription you have chosen. Price plan fees may vary based on regional taxes, promotional events or other circumstances.
If we are unable to renew your subscription and/or update your payment method for the plan renewal fee, Viddyad may suspend your account until such time as the outstanding fees are paid. If the outstanding amount is not paid within 14 days of its due date, your account may be downgraded and any functionality available or content generated using higher account privileges may be restricted or deleted.
You may cancel subscription at any point using the account page on Viddyad. Cancelling a subscription will downgrade your account to the free pr equivalent plan on Viddyad once the current paid plan period ends. Viddyad will not refund any partial periods or for any functionality or content not used while you were subscribed to the paid plan. Once your account has been downgraded, any functionality available or content generated using paid plan privileges may be restricted. Content generated using these privileges may be deleted after a period of 90 days elapses without renewal.
Premium content and Features
You may have the option of paying additional fees to purchase premium content as part of a video. This may include stock images and videos from third party partners. This content is purchased right-cleared as part of a video. The premium content here is included only as part of the video and there is no facility or entitlement for you to obtain these files individually or separate to the purchased video. The fees applied to this content only relate to the specific video produced and re-using the content in a new video may incur the same fees, unless stated otherwise.
