Terms of service
Although we may attempt to notify you when major changes are made to these Terms of service, you should periodically review the most up-to-date version. FreeSpeechTube may, in its sole discretion, modify or revise these Terms of service and policy at any time, and you agree to be bound by such modifications or revisions. Nothing in these Terms of service shall be deemed to confer any third-party rights or benefits.
Freedom of speech and expression is recognized as a human right under the UDHR (Article 19), the ICCPR (Article 19), the ECHR (Article 10) and the Constitution of the Netherlands (Article 7).
The freedom to articulate opinions and ideas is not without limitations and liabilities. UNLAWFUL ACTS, such as defamation and copyright infringement, are prohibited. Criminal law (Articles 137c-e) of the Netherlands also explicitly forbids hate speech. It prohibits communication that is insulting, or that incites discrimination, hatred (inc. Holocaust denial), or violence against a group on account of race, religion, belief ("levensovertuiging"), sex, heterosexual or homosexual orientation, or handicap.
In addition to limitations imposed by Dutch law, FreeSpeechTube disallows GRAPHIC VIOLENCE and, due to bandwidth limitations, SEXUALLY EXPLICIT CONTENT. Promotion of commercial products and lawful nudity are allowed.
Additionally, FreeSpeechTube disallows content with SEXY AND SEXUALIZED MINORS. Including, but not limited to, minors that are twerking or posing in underwear or swimwear.
"Content" includes the text, software, scripts, graphics, photos, sounds, music, videos, audiovisual combinations, interactive features and other materials you may view on, access through, or contribute to the Service. FreeSpeechTube reserves the right to remove Content without prior notice.
You retain all of your ownership rights in your Content. However, by submitting Content to FreeSpeechTube, you hereby grant FreeSpeechTube a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, sublicenseable and transferable license to use, reproduce, distribute, prepare derivative works of, display, and perform the Content in connection with the Service. You also hereby grant each user of the Service a non-exclusive license to access your Content through the Service, and to use, reproduce, distribute, display and perform such Content as permitted through the functionality of the Service and under these Terms of service.
The above licenses granted by you in video Content you submit to the Service terminate within a reasonable time after you remove or delete your videos from the Service. You understand and agree, however, that FreeSpeechTube may retain, but not display, distribute, or perform, server copies of your videos that have been removed or deleted. The above licenses granted by you in user comments you submit are perpetual and irrevocable.
TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, FREESPEECHTUBE AND ITS BOARD DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, IN CONNECTION WITH THE SERVICES AND YOUR USE THEREOF. YOU SPECIFICALLY ACKNOWLEDGE THAT FREESPEECHTUBE SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR CONTENT OR THE DEFAMATORY, OFFENSIVE, OR ILLEGAL CONDUCT OF ANY THIRD PARTY AND THAT THE RISK OF HARM OR DAMAGE FROM THE FOREGOING RESTS ENTIRELY WITH YOU.
If you seek to file a legal claim against us, you agree to file and resolve it exclusively in a court located in the Netherlands.
