Terms of Service
Castify Limited (“Castify” or “We”) offers an online video uploading and casting platform through its website located at www.castify.co.uk. By registering as a member or by using Castify in any way, you accept these Terms of Service (“Agreement”), which forms a binding agreement between you and Castify. If you do not wish to be bound by this Agreement, do not use Castify. For the avoidance of doubt, references to Castify in this terms of service also refer to the use of the Castify website (www.castify.co.uk)
You must be at least 18 years old to use Castify. We understand that castings may arise for children and those under the age of 18, therefore if you are younger than you must have your parent or legal guardian’s permission to use Castify. In such instances please have your parent of guardian read this Agreement with you.
By granting your child permission to use Castify, you agree to the terms of this Agreement on behalf of your child. You are responsible for monitoring and supervising your child’s use of Castify. If your child is using Castify, is under the age of 18 and does not have your permission, please contact us immediately so that we can disable their access.
To fully use Castify, you must register as a member by providing a user name, password, and valid email address. You must provide complete and accurate registration information to Castify and notify us if your information changes. If you are a business, government, or non-profit entity, the person whose email address is associated with the account must have the authority to bind the entity to this Agreement.
For user accounts we encourage you to use your real name. If you are a business, government, or non-profit entity, you must use the actual name of your organisation. Factors permitting, you may not use someone else’s name, a name that violates any third party right, or a name that is obscene or otherwise objectionable. Permission may be sought from relevant competent authorities to disregard the naming policy.
You are responsible for all activity that occurs under your account, including any activity by authorised or unauthorised users. You must not allow others to use your account credentials and you must safeguard the confidentiality of those credentials. If you are using a computer that others have access to, you must log out of your account after using Castify. If you become aware of an unauthorised access to your account, you must change your password and notify us immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Subscriptions and Purchases
In addition to offering a basic (free) pay as you go Castify membership, we offer paid subscriptions. Please see our Pricing Page for current features and pricing. Features and prices are subject to change. Storage limits are calculated based upon source files. We reserve the right to charge for excessive use of bandwidth.
Subscription payments are final, however fact specific special consideration may be given in certain cases.
You may choose to renew your subscription at the end of the subscription period. By default, all subscriptions are set to automatically renew for the same period of time as the original subscription. You may decline to renew at any time prior to the commencement of a renewal subscription. Castify reserves the right to deny subscriptions, renewals, and other purchases for any reason.
When a paid subscription ends, the account automatically becomes a basic (free) pay as you go account and Castify may disable access to or delete any content to comply with Basic account limits.
Purchases of other products such as upload tokens have an indefinite life until utilised.
Term and Termination; Account Deletion
The agreement between you and Castify begins on the date you first use Castify and continues as long as you have an account with us.
You may delete your account at any time. Basic accounts may be deleted from Castify due to inactivity (i.e., the user fails to log in) for a continuous period of at least 12 months. Paid subscription accounts will remain active until the end of the subscription term and any renewal term.
Castify may suspend, disable, or delete your account (or any part thereof) or block or remove any content you submitted if Castify determines that you have violated any provision of this Agreement or that your conduct or content would tend to damage Castify’s reputation and goodwill.
