General provisions

The Videa video hosting service is a hosting service as defined in Section 2 lc) of Act CVIII of 2001 where the responsibilities of Origo Ltd. (H-1117 Budapest, Gábor Dénes u. 2., hereinafter “Origo Ltd.” or “Operator”) only include storing video content uploaded by Internet users and communicating it to the public.

Users acknowledge that Videa is for uploading, sharing browsing and viewing digital video files. Users shall use the service as intended.

The intended use of videa.hu includes, in particular, that Users shall refrain from misusing other Users’ user names or manipulating the views and ratings of uploaded videos. Users shall also refrain from uploading videos for the sole purpose of advertising or posting promotional comments. The operators of videa.hu reserve the right to rescind access to the service for any User not using videa.hu as intended.

Users acknowledge that non-personal information provided on videa.hu (e.g. the address of their websites or blogs) is public and visible to any visitors to Videa.

Users consent to the videos they upload being displayed on pages of videa.hu. The definition of videa.hu includes, in addition to the Videa website available on PCs, the website and application versions of the Videa service optimized for mobile devices as well as its version available for the IPTV platform.

Users represent that they will only make available videos that they created, produced and edited, and only if all the individuals concerned have consented to the communication of these videos to the public, such individuals’ right to privacy was not violated and these videos can be published in compliance with the applicable laws. Users agree that Origo Ltd. will gain the right to utilize the videos they upload for reproduction and communication to the public.

Users acknowledge that Origo Ltd. has all the rights over the concepts and logos of Origo Ltd as well as any logos and concept phonetically or visually similar to those. Users may not use the above trademarks or any similar trademarks as their own or refer to them in a negative context.

Copyrights

The user hereby represents and warrants that, while using this website, they hold the rights to use or reuse of any copyright-protected works that they may make available on videa.hu. Users shall be exclusively responsible for the legality of exploiting copyright-protected works and to pay any fees due to authors or other copyright holders, based on their copyright title or other legal basis.

Anonymous visitor ID

An anonymous visitor ID (cookie) is a unique string capable of being used for identification and storing profile information, placed by providers on the computers of visitors. Please note that since the full IP address is not stored during its use, such a string in itself cannot identify a customer, i.e. a visitor, in any way and only enables the recognition of the visitor’s computer. It is not required to provide a name, e-mail address or any other personal information as the provider does not request such details from the visitor when using such solutions; in fact, data is only exchanged between computers.

In the networking world, personal information and customized services may only be provided if providers are able to uniquely identify the habits and needs of their customers. Similarly to other providers, Origo Media and Communication Ltd. manages the aforementioned depersonalized, anonymous IDs to gain more insight into how its customers use information in order to improve the quality of its services and display customized pages and marketing (advertising) materials to its customers visiting the website. Anonymous IDs are not linked to a personal database; however, depersonalized, anonymous IDs created when visiting any of the websites in the portfolio of Origo Media and Communication Ltd. or any contracted third parties will be linked to help improve the quality of service.

If you do not want such ID to be stored on your computer, you have the option to configure you browser so as to deny the storage of unique IDs on your computer (depending on the browser, this setting can usually be found in the Tools menu under Settings/Internet Settings). If users choose to do so, the majority of the services will still be available to you, but in certain cases (e.g. on our sites offering customized solutions) we will not be able to provide our full spectrum of services to you.
