Geogram Corporation (“Geogram”, “we” or “us”)
We facilitate the provision of digital experiences for end users and monetization opportunities for those experiences.
Our Publishers use our Software and Services to develop Content which can be served to End Users through our End User application.
In these Terms of Service, “You” or “you” or “User” means the individual who downloads, installs, accesses, or uses any of Geogram’s Apps or its Services (and, if you represent a legal entity, it also means that entity, and you represent and warrant that you are authorized to enter into this agreement for that entity).
We offer our Avatar World customers (“Customers”) access to the following software and platforms (the “Software” and the “Services”) on a software as a service (“SAAS”) basis:
Avatar World, a holographic avatar video production, post-production and publishing platform that may be standalone or integrated with Geogram XD, comprising
a. Capture software, as well as camera and lighting specifications, for the production of the avatar footage;
b. Post-processing software and services to produce the finished avatar and prepare it for streaming;
c. Avatar World Mobile App, which may be standalone or integrated with other mobile apps to enable the publication and display to mobile users of avatars.
These Terms of Service are intended for our Avatar World service offerings.
For purposes of these Terms of Service, “Avatar World” consists of an ecosystem and services (the “Services”) which:
(a) licenses “Publishers” (persons who create avatars for use in Avatar World) to access and use the Platform, services and software provided by Geogram to develop, process, and upload content for creation of avatars, conversion of content into an avatar, contribute avatars to the Services, the streaming of that avatar, and the organization and sharing of avatars in Avatar World (“Publisher Services”); and
(b) licenses end users (“End Users”) to access and use services and software provided by Geogram to view and stream avatars in Avatar World, organize, share, and follow avatars and related Content (“End User Services”).
For purposes of these Terms of Service, Geogram’s “App” consists of: Geogram’s website, cloud-based server, cloud based client application(s), including software, code, text, graphics, logos, designs, layouts, interfaces, and other items included in or associated with the application; and any updates, supplements, and the result of any support or other services provided by Geogram in respect of the App, all of which are deemed included within the App upon delivery to you. The App may be delivered to you electronically, directly or through a third party. The App may be delivered integrated with a third party’s application in which event Geogram’s license agreement with you is supplemental to your agreement with that third party. The App may enable your access to one or more websites,
other applications, databases, or other products and services offered by Geogram or accessible through Geogram’s systems and Services. Separate rights and permissions from Geogram are required to use Publisher Services and End User Services and the respective elements of Geogram’s App that are applicable to Publishers and End Users.
“Content” refers to the avatars, text, software, scripts, graphics, photos, sounds, music, videos, audiovisual combinations, interactive features and other materials that Publishers provide to the Services for the use of End Users.
By installing or using Geogram’s App for the use of Publisher Services or otherwise using any of Geogram’s Publisher Services, you accept all of the terms of Geogram’s Publisher Agreement (the “Publisher Agreement”). The Publisher Agreement states the terms and conditions on which Geogram grants, and you accept a limited, non-exclusive license to install and use the App on one device owned by you or under your legitimate control, to engage in non-commercial use of the App, and upon which Geogram may make available access to Publisher Services. By installing or using the App, you accept all of the terms and conditions of the Publisher Agreement. Geogram may change these terms at any time without prior notice. The revised terms will become effective upon posting them to the Services or the App. Any use of the Services or the App after such date shall constitute your acceptance of such revised terms. If any change to these terms is not acceptable to you, your sole remedy is to cease accessing, browsing and otherwise using the Services and the App.
By installing or using Geogram’s App for the use of End User Services or otherwise using any of Geogram’s End User Services, you accept all of the terms of Geogram’s End User License Agreement (the “Public EULA”). The Public EULA states the terms and conditions on which Geogram grants, and you accept a limited, non-exclusive license to install and use the App on one device owned by you or under your legitimate control, to engage in non-commercial use of the App, and upon which Geogram may make available access to End User Services. By installing or using the App, you accept all of the terms and conditions of the Public EULA. Geogram may change these terms at any time without prior notice. The revised terms will become effective upon posting them to the Services or the App. Any use of the Services or the App after such date shall constitute your acceptance of such revised terms. If any change to these terms is not acceptable to you, your sole remedy is to cease accessing, browsing and otherwise using the Services and the App.
There may be additional terms that Geogram presents to you from time to time, for example, at the time of a download (“Additional Terms”). In the event of a conflict between the Publisher Agreement or Public EULA, as applicable, and any Additional Terms, the Additional Terms will be applied in priority to the applicable Publisher Agreement or Public EULA, unless the Additional Terms expressly state otherwise.
These Terms of Service are supplemental to each Publisher Agreement and each Public EULA (each, a “EULA”) entered into between you and Geogram Corporation, its affiliates and licensors (collectively “Geogram” or “we” or “us”) and are incorporated by reference in that EULA.
We reserve the right to change these Terms of Service at any time, and you agree (including by virtue of your continued use of our Software or Services) to be bound by any such changes, effective upon notice to you, which notice shall be deemed to have been provided upon our posting of the current version of our Terms of Service to our Services. Unless explicitly stated otherwise, any new features or functionality or services that augment or enhance our Services shall be subject to these Terms of Service.
Words and phrases defined in the applicable Publisher Agreement and Public EULA have the same meanings in these Terms of Service except as may be expressly provided herein.
Certain Services are provided to you free of charge, while other Services, require payment before you can access them and/or may require your agreement to additional terms.
Please review these Terms carefully before using the Software or Services because they affect your rights. By using any of the Software or Services, you accept these Terms and agree to be legally bound by them.
The following terms apply to Publishers and End Users.
1. Content: All Content is supplied by the respective Publishers under whose access grant the Content was supplied to End Users through the Services, and is not to be redistributed by End Users contrary to these Terms of Service.

other elements comprising Content are also copyrighted works, and we (subject to the rights of our licensors and licensees under applicable agreements, understandings and arrangements) have all rights therein.

(b) Grant of Rights and Licenses to Geogram and its affiliates and licensors and service providers. By posting or submitting or generating or manipulating Content on or to our Services (regardless of the form or medium with respect to such content), you automatically grant (or warrant that the owner of such materials expressly grants) Geogram and its affiliates and licensors and service providers a world-wide, perpetual, royalty-free, irrevocable, non-exclusive, sublicensable and transferable right and license to use, store, adapt, modify, delete from, add to, transmit, communicate, publicly display and perform, reproduce and translate, distribute, prepare compilations and derivative works from the Content in connection with the Services and Geogram’s and Geogram’s service provider’s (including its and their respective successors’ and affiliates’) business, including without limitation for promoting and redistributing part or all of the Services (and derivative works thereof), and for promoting Geogram, in any media formats and through any media channels.

Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, with respect to any audio or video submissions to us made by you from time to time, you understand and agree that (unless you and we agree otherwise) we may, or may permit users to, based solely on functionality provided and enabled by our Services, compile, re-edit, adapt or modify your video submission, or create derivative works therefrom, either on a stand-alone basis or in combination with other third party Content, and (unless you and we agree otherwise) you shall have no rights with respect thereto and we or our licensees shall be free to display and publish the same (as so compiled, re-edited, adapted, modified or derived) for any period. The rights and licenses granted by you will apply with respect to any form, media or technology now known or later developed. In addition, you warrant that all “moral rights” in your Content, including all rights of attribution and publicity have been waived or assigned to Geogram for the purposes of this Agreement. Geogram has the right to delete or otherwise edit any Content that you post to the Services at its sole discretion.

You may not upload, transmit, or share content that you did not create or that you do not have permission to upload and use.
