Description of Services

Website http://ivipid.com was created and is controlled by a Russian company ZAO «Laboratory of Visual and Network Technologies» (V&N Labs), with its registered office at 115114, Russia, Moscow, Derbenevskay nab., 7 building 6. Internet service VipID allows Registered Users to create their own personalized videos. For personalizing video one can use different types of content received from the User: text, video, graphic files, music or other data. Service VipID proceeds the data received from the User and automatically creates a new unique copy of the video based on the pattern chosen by the User.

You understand and agree that although we will use reasonable efforts to ensure the website is available to its Users, temporary interruptions of the services available through this website may occur. The services available on this site are provided "AS IS" and V&N Labs is not liable to you for any temporary interruption in services.

Video Creation/Creation Points Each new copy of the video shall be made in exchange for Creation Points. The User buys Creation Points for real money via electronic payment.

When the system starts creating the video, it freezes the relevant amount of Creation Points before the production process ends. In case the production of video copy fails, Creation Points won’t be deducted from the User’s account. In case the production of video copy is successful, the frozen Creation Points will be deducted from the User’s account.

Creation Points can be only spent for VipID Service. Once purchased by the user Creation Points can not be swapped back in cash.

In case there are any unexpected technical problems in the process of video creation, the User shall contact technical support service at the address: support@ivipid.com. Technical support service shall solve the User’s problems within 48 hours, otherwise it returns the spent Creation Points to the User’s account.

Payment
