About Uszigvid is a free, privately owned, user generated website, where broadcasting and social networking are perfectly combined in a worry-free environment.
zigvid is available to all web surfers, but in order to upload videos and content you must be a member. Unlike other video and social networking sites, zigvid is an exclusive, by invitation only club. This helps maintain the integrity of zigvid while encouraging a close-knit social network of users.
The creators of zigvid feel the internet has provided many benefits including the increased ability to spread and share information, communicate with others and develop new interests. With so much material out there, and a lack of user accountability, we are constantly inundated with objectionable content on public and high traffic websites. Some of this content is not only offensive, it is a threat to our values and safety, and most importantly to our children, even within the safety of the home.
The major difference between zigvid and other video content sites such as YouTube is that all zigvid content is screened before it is posted on the site. No inappropriate content will be posted on zigvid. That means a smart, clean and fun environment that reflects your values and ensures that all the content you see is the kind of stuff you want to see, each and every time.

General Use Restrictionszigvid provides content and other services through the Site and/or the Services. Certain information, text, software, scripts, graphics, photos, illustrations, creative writing, artwork, sounds, music, videos, games, blogs, podcasts, interactive features, documents, products and services and other materials provided on and through the Site and/or the Services, including content, trademarks, logos, graphics and images that are not Submissions (as defined below) (together, the "Materials") are provided to you by zigvid and are the copyrighted work of zigvid or zigvid's contributors.
zigvid grants you a limited, personal, non-exclusive and non-transferable license to use and to display the Materials and use the Services and the Site solely for your personal noncommercial use. You acknowledge and agree that you have no right to modify, edit, copy, reproduce, create derivative works of, alter, enhance or in any way exploit any of the Materials in any manner. This limited license terminates automatically, without notice to you, if you breach any of these Terms. Upon termination of this limited license, you agree to immediately destroy any downloaded or printed Materials. Except as stated herein, you acknowledge that you have no right, title or interest in or to the Site or any Materials on any legal basis.
You agree not to use or launch any automated system, including, without limitation, robots, spiders, offline readers, etc., that accesses the Site in a manner that sends more request messages to the Site's server in a given period of time than a human can reasonably produce in the same period by using a conventional on-line browser. Notwithstanding the foregoing, zigvid grants operators of public search engines permission to use spiders to copy materials from the Site for the sole purpose of creating publicly available search indices of the Materials and Submissions (as defined below), but not caches or archives of such Materials and Submissions.
Password Restricted Areas of the Site and Use of ServiceYou may need a password to login to the Site and to use the Services or certain functions and areas within the Site ("Restricted Areas"). If you are an authorized member of the Services or the Restricted Areas, you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and account, and agree to notify zigvid if your password is lost, stolen, or disclosed to an unauthorized third party, or otherwise may have been compromised. You are responsible for activities that occur under your account. You agree to immediately notify zigvid of any unauthorized use of your account or any other breach of security in relation to the Site or the Services known to you. You will not use other members' contact information gathered from the Services or the Restricted Areas of the Site for commercial purposes and agree not to provide any other member's contact information to any third party that is not a registered member of zigvid.
Third Party ContentCertain information and content that are not Submissions may be provided by third party licensors and suppliers to zigvid ("Third Party Content"). The Third Party Content is, in each case, the copyrighted work of the creator/licensor. Unless you have permission from the owner of the Third Party Content, you agree to only display the Third Party Content on your personal computer solely for your personal noncommercial use. You acknowledge and agree that you have no right to download, cache, reproduce, modify, display (except as set forth in this paragraph), edit, alter or enhance any of the Third Party Content in any manner unless you have permission from the owner of the Third Party Content. zigvid DISCLAIMS ALL EXPRESS, IMPLIED AND STATUTORY WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS WITH REGARD TO THIRD PARTY CONTENT, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT.
Links to Third Party SitesThis Site may be linked to other sites that are not zigvid sites. zigvid is providing these links to you only as a convenience, and zigvid is not responsible for the content or links displayed on such sites.
zigvid will impose a limit on the size of your transmissions, which may change from time to time. Currently, zigvid allows you to post Submissions that are up to one hundred megabytes (100MB) in size or ten (10) minutes or less in time per Submission. zigvid reserves the right to remove, without prior notice, any Submission that is excessive in length.
When you first post your Submission to the Site, your Submission will be accessible only to those users whom you designate as your "friends" on the Site. zigvid will review your Submission, generally within twenty-four (24) hours of your posting the Submission to the Site. Upon zigvid's review, zigvid shall have the right to: (I) post your Submission to the zigvid community at large on and through the Site and/or Services or (II) remove your Submission, in whole or in part, if such Submission contains any content that zigvid determines is offensive, pornographic, obscene, defamatory and/or does not meet the community standards established by zigvid for the Site. Notwithstanding the foregoing, zigvid does not monitor, evaluate or police any Submissions or other content or information submitted by you to the Site for the purposes of identifying and screening out material that could be infringing third party copyright rights. One important reason for zigvid's policy of not monitoring, evaluating or policing Submissions and postings by uses for third party infringements is that it is difficult to recognize intellectual property rights infringements on a casual inspection, without legal training or all of the relevant facts. If the owner (or an authorized agent of the owner) of a copyright reports an infringing posting on the Site as specified in zigvid's Terms, zigvid will comply with procedures specified by the Digital Millennium Copyright Act ("DMCA"). Like many service providers, zigvid will handle allegations of copyright infringement by using the procedures specified under the DCMA, as further specified below in these Terms [See "Copyrights and Copyright Agents"]. And zigvid reserves the right to terminate a user's access to the Site if such user has been notified of infringing activity more than twice and/or has had a Submission removed from the Site more than twice.
Community Standards for Postingszigvid asks that you respect our on-line community and other individuals. When posting Submissions to or otherwise using the Site and/or the Services, you agree not to:
- Post off-topic, hateful or false Content.

- Defame, abuse, harass, stalk, threaten, or otherwise violate the legal rights (such as rights of privacy and publicity) of others.
- Impersonate or represent zigvid, our staff or any other individual.

- Use "robots" or "spiders."

- a description of the copyrighted work that you claim has been infringed, including the URL (i.e., web page address) of the location where the copyrighted work exists or a copy of the copyrighted work;

This list of prohibitions is an example and is not complete or exclusive. These prohibitions do not require zigvid to monitor or remove any Submissions or other information submitted by our or any other user. zigvid reserves the right to terminate your access to your account and/or your ability to post to the Site or use the Services with or without cause and with or without notice, or for any action that zigvid determines is inappropriate or disruptive to the Site, Services or to any other user of the Site and/or Services. zigvid may report to law enforcement authorities any actions that may be illegal, and any reports it receives of such conduct. When legally required or at zigvid's discretion, zigvid will cooperate with law enforcement agencies in any investigation of alleged illegal activity on the Internet.
