Thank you for using Remote Filming.
Our mission is to provide a simple, universal and easy to-use way of streaming your films and stills photographs that keeps your shoots safe and secure while helping you and those you work with engaged with your work and able to see clearly what you are filming.
These Terms of Service (“Terms”) cover your use of and access to our services. Your agreement is with Remote Filming Limited based in London, United Kingdom.
We understand you’re busy, so we’ve summed up our Terms of Service in a few simple sentences to start with.
We also understand that if you’re reading these, you’ll be interested to see what’s in here. This simple summary doesn’t replace all the legal stuff, but it will give you
an idea of the detail in the following pages. If you have any questions or concerns – please contact us.
Here are the headlines for the terms and conditions that apply when you are using Remote Filming’s services:
That’s it. Seems fair?
You stream your shoots, and we’ll do all we can to support you.
Remote Filming streams films and stills photography live to remote Viewers (the “Services”) so they don’t have to be present at shoots and can see, interact and engage with what the camera/s see without significant delay on their personal and business devices, including all types of computers, mobile telephones, and other devices like tablets.
Your use of and access to our services, software, websites (including browser extensions) and/or applications (together: “Services”) are governed by these Terms of Service (“Terms”).
The Services may be provided to you online, in the form of a mobile and/or desktop application/s and/or may be integrated in a third-party service. The Services allow you to transmit the images and audio data (“Content”) from your film and still shoot/s to remote Viewers wherever they are in the world.
You retain all rights in – and responsibility and liability for – all images and audio data. Remote Filming does not record, store, retain or claim ownership of your Content.
The Services are provided to you as the User of the Services by Remote Filming Limited, 5 Eton Garages, Lambolle Place, London NW3 4PE UK. Remote Filming is registered in England, number 12576270.
a. You are only permitted to use the Services when you represent or are employed by a legally registered company or you are a recognised professional in your sector and you are using the Services for your own project/s or on behalf of a
registered company involved in content making. Mostly, this means you’ll be a film professional or in the film business or involved in professional photography but not to the exclusion of other sectors.
b. You must be aged 16 or older.
c. Please read the Terms carefully. By using the Services (directly with us or through a third-party reseller, application, plug-in, extension or integration) you agree and accept these Terms and our Notice and Take Down Policy (“NTD Policy”).
d. Use of personal data and cookies in relation to the Services means our Privacy & Cookie Statement applies.
e. If the Services include, are used in connection with, or are integrated in the services of third parties, the terms and conditions, notice and take-down policies and/or privacy and cookie policies of those third parties may apply in addition to these Terms. If you are using the Services on behalf of your employer or another organisation, you are agreeing to the terms on behalf of that organisation and you represent and warrant that you have the authority to do so. Remote Filming is not responsible for any third-party services, terms and/or policies or any breach thereof.
f. If you want to file a complaint or notice about unlawful Content being stored, retained, or shared as a result of using the Services, please read our NTD Policy.
g. If you become aware of a vulnerability in any of the Services, please read our Responsible Disclosure Policy.
h. Remote Filming can amend the Terms from time to time. The amended Terms will become effective upon them being posted on Remote Filming’s website/s and/or on Remote Filming’s mobile and/or desktop application(s), and/or confirmed in writing by letter or email or at such later date as may be stated on the amended Terms. Therefore, we recommend that you review the Terms from time to time and take note of any changes. By continuing your use of the Services, you accept the amended Terms. In case of material changes to the Terms, you will be informed prior to the change:
i. at the moment you use the Services, or
ii. by a message to the contact details you provided to us, or
iii. by a posting of the notice of the change on Remote Filming’s website(s).
In the event you don’t accept a change you can choose to cancel your confirmation of use of the Services but only if it’s 24 hours or more in advance of our service being installed on your device/s. i. These Terms supersede all prior oral and written quotations, terms, communications, agreements, and understandings between you and Remote Filming Limited.
a. Remote Filming allows you to live broadcast your films, videos, photographic images and audio data together (“Content”) to others wherever they are located in the world as long as they have and are able to connect to a stable internet signal equal to or above the minimum upload speeds we recommend.
b. To broadcast your Content, you will need a stable internet connection with a minimum upload speed of 5Mbps and the equipment specified in the Remote Filming equipment guidelines, which are amended from time to time. If you are ever unsure about what equipment or which equipment version you need or the strength of the internet signal where you are broadcasting from Remote Filming will always do its best to help, support and advise you. If your internet signal is poor where you are broadcasting we can make small reductions in the bitrate but we cannot guarantee that this will not adversely affect the streaming quality or latency of the streaming nor whether it will improve the stability of the broadcasting. The bitrate describes the rate at which the bits are transferred from one location to another and measure how much data is transmitted in a given amount of time. It’s usually measured as bits per second (bps) or megabits per second (Mbps).
c. Remote Filming doesn’t take any responsibility whatsoever for any interruption or failure of the internet signal or service at your broadcast location or for the inability of your Viewers to be able to log on to your stream/s as a result of poor, intermittent or unstable internet speeds, or for any consequential costs or losses howsoever incurred as a result. Without a stable and above-minimum internet upload speed our services will struggle to work consistently.
d. Remote Filming does not provide, sell or hire the equipment you will need to broadcast your Content, including but not limited to laptops, capture cards orother devices to capture film, photographic images or audio signals, cables, video assist systems and cameras and they are not included in our rates and prices. We will, however, give you as much helpful support and advice as we can.
e. Remote Filming streaming services are facilitated by its software and app which is remotely downloaded and installed on your local Mac laptop. We will share the streaming link and password/s only to the email address/es provided by you for distribution to your own list of recipients. We take no responsibility for sharing the streaming link and password with the wrong email recipient/s unless we have incorrectly transcribed them from the list you gave us. We prefer to be given one email address only and to share the streaming link and password with only that recipient with your express instructions but in either event we are not responsible for any consequential losses, howsoever calculated or whatever their nature because of being given incorrect email/s.
f. If you use our universal login process, that is a streaming link and common password for all stream Viewers, we will not know which recipients are logged into the streaming.
g. Alternatively, you can opt to use our one-time-password (OTP) login for viewers where we will share the portal link as described above and viewers will be required to enter an OTP sent to them via the email pre-registered with us. It is your responsibility to ensure all email addresses are correctly formatted and shared with us prior to your streaming commencing so we can efficiently and fully pre-register all required viewers you tell us about.
h. Remote Filming does not record any Content streamed using our system and when streaming is stopped at the end of your broadcasting there is no record at all of your Content on any of our servers or any other storage device. If you need to record and/or playback Content during streaming you will need to have a video assist system or make other arrangements.
i. For more information on Remote Filming’s data retention policy, please contact our Support Centre.
j. Remote Filming provides the possibility to share your Content with an unlimited number of Viewers but tell us before your broadcast if you plan to share your Content with more than 50 Viewers. We don’t think it’ll change anything but it’s better to know in advance.
k. Using Remote Filming streaming is subject to a fee which is discounted for streaming certain types of Content and for streaming for 5 (five) days or more.
l. Remote Filming also offers a number of additional services which are priced at various rates and of different terms, including but not limited to additional Content streams and branded portals.
m. Remote Filming reserves the right to amend the rates without notice and to quote different rates to different Users according to its own commercial judgement and interest.
n. Remote Filming treats all Content as confidential and does not control the use of links and passwords, regardless of whether they are originally distributed by us or by you. Recipients can forward the links and allow others to use them. You are solely responsible for the Content, links, and passwords you share.
o. Confirmation of our services and/or full payment of applicable fees for Remote Filming is acceptance of all terms and conditions.
a. You can only have access to any Remote Filming streaming service if you have confirmed your booking in writing by email and have had an acknowledgement of your booking. We’d like to have at least 24 hours’ notice, but we can work with less if circumstances dictate. If you are confirming a booking within that time, please contact us by telephone as well.
b. If you confirm your booking for our service/s we will invoice you and require payment in advance for the streaming app to be installed and the streaming switched on. If we don’t enforce this, it’s at our own discretion and it doesn’t mean we’ll do it again.
c. We will advise you in advance of all the charges, fees, and sales taxes applicable to your booking, usually by email but sometimes verbally if time is short. We will always confirm the agreed invoice amount for a confirmed booking by email.
d. We may introduce or change the fees for our services from time to time, for which we will give you advance notice but if you have already confirmed a booking/s we will always honour the price we have agreed with you, even if we change the rates before or during your job.
e. If your job changes after you have confirmed a booking, we will advise you of the new fees and charges as soon as we can, whether the costs to you go up or down. We will invoice or credit you the difference accordingly as soon as we are able to do so. We will notify you using the email address associated with your enquiry and/or your request for the provision of the Services
f. Depending on the payment method you choose, the issuer of the payment method may charge you certain fees relating to the processing of your payment of our invoice. RemoteFilming is not liable for those fees.
g. You have the option to choose you method of payment for our services, but you remain liable for all fees charged for the transaction by the payment issuer. They shouldn’t be deducted from our fees and you should accept the charge/s in full just as we will if we are refunding you for any part of our fee/s, paying in the currency we invoice in.
h. Remote Filming may suspend or cancel our streaming services to you if a payment is not successfully settled in advance of the job/s or on a specific date or at a specific date and time agreed with us in advance. (for instance, in case of insufficient funds, expiration of credit cards, a change in payment details or otherwise). Suspension or cancellation of the Services for non-payment can result in a loss of access to our streaming services and the facility for your Viewers to see the stream/s. Again, we aren’t liable for any losses or costs howsoever calculated or caused.
i. Payment by Visa or MasterCard credit or by debit card, or by electronic banking are acceptable ways to pay Remote Filming Limited. We don’t accept cash or cheques, or any other forms of payment.
j. Our streaming service will be terminated at the end of your confirmed shoot unless you request us to continue streaming your shoot or event. We will happily extend the streaming period and will agree the additional charges with you, for which we will require immediate payment after we invoice you for any extra charges.
k. If you cancel a confirmed booking you must do so by email and if it is within 24 hours of the start of the shoot, by telephone as well. There are no cancellation fees to be paid in these circumstances, unless you have already installed our software on your device/s. If this has been done before the point of cancellation, we reserve the right to charge an installation fee for the time involved. If you have already paid for your booking, we will refund you the amount paid, but we will deduct any bank charges made for the payment and the cost of data, if any, streamed up to that point.
l. No matter how you paid Remote Filming, we will only refund the amount due into your nominated bank account and not onto a credit card. It will be up to you to make sure you give us the correct bank account details as we are liable for any costs or losses you incur if we pay into an incorrect bank account if you have given us the details, which we will require in writing.
a. Remote Filming does not claim any ownership of the Content you create, use, store or share through the Services and you are solely responsible for it. Also, you are solely responsible for sharing it with the correct recipients whether they are individuals or organisations. Any liability for damages relating to the Content lies with the individual or company that creates, uses stores, and/or shares it within the Services. You acknowledge that access links and passwords, and other security measures can be forwarded and that recipients having access to such links, can access the Content it’s connected with.
b. We download our app (the Software) to your equipment so we can supply our Services.
c. If you comply with these Terms, we give you a limited, non-exclusive, non- transferable, revocable licence to use the Software, solely to access the Services for the period you have booked with us.
