Terms of Service
You must read and agree to this Terms of Service Agreement ("Agreement") if you are a User of MinMax's website at minmax.co, MinMax’s mobile application (“Mobile App”) or MinMax’s video creation services made available through authorized third party websites (collectively referred to as the “Site” or “Services”).
You acknowledge and agree that, by (1) clicking the “I Agree” or similar button to access the Services, or (2) downloading a MinMax application or (3) otherwise accessing or using the Services, you have read these terms and agree to these terms. If you do not agree with these terms, you must immediately cease all use of the Services and un-install any application from your hardware.
You acknowledge that these Terms are between You and MinMax, and not with any third party from which you obtained the Services, and such third party (called a “Provider”) is not responsible for the Services nor their content. Provider has no obligation whatsoever to furnish any maintenance or support services with respect to the Services. However, You agree and acknowledge that Provider is a third party beneficiary of these Terms, and that upon Your acceptance of these Terms, Provider will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce these terms against You as a third party beneficiary thereof. Your use of the Services is not only subject to these Terms of Service, but also any terms of service and/or rules of such third party site.
There are two general types of Users of the Services, registered users that have registered with MinMax for commercial purposes (“Commercial Users”) or who have registered with an authorized third party that provides access to MinMax Services ("End Users"). The term "commercial purposes" as it pertains to Commercial Users shall mean any use of an MinMax video that directly or indirectly derives a commercial benefit or financial gain.
Commercial Users may use MinMax Videos for commercial purposes, but may only distribute or otherwise make available MinMax Videos to third parties who have agreed to use the MinMax Videos for non-commercial purposes.
You must be 13 years of age or older to be a User of the Services. You must be 18 years of age or older to be a Commercial User. By continuing to use the Services, you are warranting that you are at least 13 years old if you are using the Services to make MinMax Videos for personal use, and that you are at least 18 years old if you are using the Services to make MinMax Videos for commercial purposes. You further warrant that you have the authority to enter into these Terms of Service.
This Terms of Service Agreement was last updated on July 28, 2020. We reserve the right, at any time, to modify the Services and/or the terms of this Agreement without prior notice. We recommend that you check these Terms of Service periodically to see if there have been any modifications. Modifications will become effective immediately upon being posted on the Site. Your continued use of the Services after modifications are posted will be considered an acceptance of the modified Terms of Service.
The Services are owned and operated by MinMax Inc., a Delaware Corporation with a place of business at 7680 Hidden Cove Road, Bainbridge Island, WA, 98110 USA. The MinMax Services provide Users with the ability to have a video ("MinMax Video") automatically created by MinMax using uploaded or captured photographs or video clips ("Image Content").
By registering with us, you agree that all information provided to us is true and accurate and you will keep it current. During the registration process, you will be asked to select a third party login to verify your identity. Commercial User accounts may be shared with up to two (2) other users within your organization, but you remain responsible for all activities relating to your account. You agree to notify MinMax immediately if you learn of an unauthorized use of your account. You are fully responsible for activities or transactions that relate to your account.
Payment of Fees
If, for any reason, the payment by the Commercial User associated with your End User account is not received by MinMax, your End User account will be suspended until payment is received by us.
You agree to obey all applicable rules and regulations in using the Services, and agree that you are responsible for the contents of your submissions or communications through the site, including Image Content and MinMax Videos (collectively, "Submissions").
You will not modify, create derivative works of, decompile or otherwise attempt to extract source code from us. You agree that you will not upload, share, or otherwise distribute any Submissions that:
We do not endorse the contents of any Submissions. We do not pre-screen or monitor Submissions. However, we have the right at our sole discretion to remove any content of any kind that, in our judgment, does not comply with these Terms of Service and any other rules of user conduct, or is otherwise harmful, objectionable, or inaccurate. We are not responsible for any failure or delay in removing such content.
If you would like to notify us of content which you believe does not comply with these Terms of Service, please email us at email@example.com. Make sure to include both the Uniform Resource Locator ("URL") for the non-complying video or content, and the reasons you believe it does not comply. You understand that in using the Services, you may be exposed to materials that are objectionable as set forth above. You hereby waive and agree to waive all rights, claims, and actions in law or equity against MinMax arising from your exposure to such materials.
You agree that we may at any time, and at our sole discretion, terminate your account without prior notice to you and without reimbursement if we suspect a violation any of these Terms of Service. In addition, you acknowledge that we will cooperate fully with investigations by law enforcement authorities.
You may not link to the Site unless you comply with these linking conditions.
Your ability to share your MinMax Video may depend on whether you obtained access to MinMax Services from an authorized third party, and therefore you may not have all of the sharing capabilities described. MinMax Videos may only be used for personal, non-commercial, uses, unless you are a Commercial User. You agree that you will not modify MinMax video player code in any way, nor will you modify the display of your MinMax Video.
Your right to link to the MinMax Site is expressly conditioned upon your compliance with the following restrictions:
Third Party Sites and Information
MinMax's Intellectual Property Rights.
MinMax is the owner and retains all proprietary rights to the Site, the services provided by the Site, and all associated copyrights, trademarks, brands, service marks, patents or other proprietary rights under law. Copying, distributing, modifying, or creating derivative works of MinMax’s Services without MinMax's written permission is strictly prohibited.
MinMax's trademarks and/or service marks may not be used in connection with any product or service that is not provided by MinMax, in any manner that is likely to cause confusion among customers or users of the site, tarnishes or dilutes the marks, or disparages or discredits MinMax.
MinMax’s Services include a user interface that allows you to upload user content into the preselected template. You are granted a limited right to use those services only in conjunction with the Site and in accordance with these Terms of Service. Your inputs are then handed off to MinMax’s proprietary video creation engine, which automatically creates the MinMax Video. Users do not have direct access to the video creation engine and therefore you receive no license to use it. MinMax’s Services (including its user interface and video creation engine) are MinMax’s intellectual property.
Others' Intellectual Property Rights.
MinMax deeply respects the third party intellectual property rights that may be implicated in creating a MinMax Video. These intellectual property rights, and your responsibilities with respect to these rights, are outlined below.
In creating a MinMax Video using MinMax's proprietary software, you will be able to use your own Image Content such as photos, text, or video segments. The Image Content has associated intellectual property rights as described further herein. You retain any and all rights you hold with respect to Image Content.
Image Content may be protected by copyright, even if not marked with the © symbol. If you are not the creator of Image Content, then you must get permission from the creator of the Image Content or the copyright holder to use the Image Content in a MinMax Video. For example, professionally-taken photographs should not be used in a MinMax Video unless you have received permission from the photographer to do so. As another example, professionally-produced video clips, such as clips of TV shows or movies, should not be used in a MinMax Video unless you have received a license to do so from the owner of the copyright.
Furthermore, if you want to publish Image Content of someone other than yourself, you must get permission from the individuals portrayed in the Image Content before using the content in a MinMax Video. Do not upload any Image Content that is confidential or proprietary. We assume no liability with respect to the disclosure or use of confidential or proprietary information uploaded to our Site.
MinMax may license certain Image Content in the form of photos and/or video clips from third parties (“Licensed Images”) and make that content available to its users for use in making MinMax Videos. Ownership of all intellectual property rights in Licensed Images remains with the third party licensor, and you are granted a limited right to use such Licensed Images subject to these terms. Your use of Licensed Images is subject to the following restrictions:
· You may only use and modify Licensed Images in connection with making a MinMax Video via the Services, and may only copy, distribute, or display the Licensed Images as incorporated within the MinMax Video, and only in digital form.
· You receive no right to use the Licensed Images except in connection with the Services, and no right to copy, distribute, or display Licensed Images separately from the MinMax Video.
· If a Licensed Image featuring an individual(s) is used in connection with a sensitive, unflattering or controversial subject, you agree that you must include a statement that the image is used for illustrative purposes only and the individual is a model.
· You are not permitted to activate the “right click” function in Licensed Images, remove any metadata in Licensed Images, or reverse engineer, decompile or disassemble the Services to enable the download or use of Licensed Images on a stand alone basis.
· Licensed Images may not be used:
o on a stand-alone basis with no other content;
o for pornographic, defamatory or other unlawful purposes;
o in electronic templates used to create electronic or printed products;
o for the purpose of enabling file-sharing of the image file; or
o in logos, trademarks, services marks or any other branding or identifiers, separate from the MinMax Videos created through the Services, provided you acknowledge you shall receive no trademark protection for the Licensed Images themselves.
You may want to search for Image Content through the Creative Commons.
You warrant that all Image Content uploaded by you, either from your own computer or another Site/server, is either created and owned by you, or you have the necessary licenses, rights and permissions to use the Images as you intend to use them and as contemplated by the Site and grant MinMax the rights described herein. As an End User, all use of the Site is limited to personal, non-commercial purposes only.
You hereby grant to MinMax a royalty-free, perpetual license to use, copy, create, modify, display and host your MinMax Video and Image Content solely to the extent necessary for MinMax to provide the Services.
All trademarks and/or service marks displayed on the Site are the exclusive property of their respective owners, and may not be used without the owner's permission.
Open Source Licenses.
The Mobile App available from Provider uses open source software that is distributed to you in executable form if you download the MinMax application. A list of the open source software, and link to the applicable open source terms, which are contained within the Mobile App can be found at
You understand and acknowledge that each open source license is a separate agreement between You and the copyright holder of such open source software, and MinMax is not a party to any such open source license. Your use of the MinMax application must comply with terms of the applicable open source licenses.
Notice of Copyright or Intellectual Property Infringement.
Please notify us if you believe any of your intellectual property rights have been infringed by a User of the Site. Pursuant to Section 512 of the Copyright Revision Act, as enacted through the Digital Millennium Copyright Act ("DMCA"), MinMax designates the following individual as its agent for receipt of notifications of claimed infringement:
MinMax Inc. c/o Anthony Jacobellis Attn: DMCA Claims 7680 Hidden Cove Road, Bainbridge Island, WA, 98110
By E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. This email is for infringement notifications only!
Please email email@example.com for customer service inquiries.
To be effective the notification should include: (a) a physical or electronic signature of the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the right being infringed; (b) identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or if multiple copyrighted works at a single online site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at the site; (c) identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity, and Information sufficient to permit us to locate the material; (d) information sufficient to allow us to contact the complaining party; (e) a statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright or intellectual property owner, agent, or the law; and (f) a statement that the information in the notification is accurate and, under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the right being infringed. If you fail to comply with all of these requirements, your DMCA notification may not be valid.
You acknowledge and agree that upon receipt and notice of a claim of infringement, we may immediately remove the identified materials from our site without liability, and the claims of the complaining party and party that originally posted the materials will be referred to the United States Copyright Office for adjudication as provided in the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.
If you believe that your video has been removed in error, you may submit a counter-notification in compliance with DMCA. To be effective, the counter-notification must include: (a) your physical or electronic signature, (b) identification of your material that has been disabled, and the location of the material before it was removed, (c) a statement under penalty of perjury that you have a good faith belief that your material was disabled as a result of mistake or mis-identification of the material, and (d) your name, address, and telephone number, and a statement that says you consent to the jurisdiction of Federal District Court for the judicial district in which your address is located (if in the United States), or if your address is outside of the United States, for any judicial district in which the MinMax may be found, and that you agree to accept service of process from the complaining party, or an agent of such person.
MinMax, and not any Provider, is solely responsible for the investigation, defense, settlement, and discharge of any intellectual property infringement claim relating to the Services or an MinMax Video.
Your account will be terminated if, at MinMax's sole discretion, you are determined to be a repeat infringer. Repeat infringers are users who have been the subject of more than one valid takedown request that has not been successfully rebutted.
