The Livestream Service allows you to upload and display certain content as permitted by the functionality of the Livestream Service.

Except if you sign up for a Livestream Premium account (in which case the Livestream Premium Producer Terms of Use shall apply to your use of the Livestream Service as a Premium account holder), by signing up for a Livestream free producer account or otherwise using the Livestream Service to upload or display your Produced Content, you acknowledge that you have read, understood and agree to be bound by these Livestream Free Producer Terms of Use, including any future modifications (the "Agreement").

Any capitalized terms not defined herein have the meaning set forth in the Livestream Service Terms of Use.

Your use of the Livestream Service is subject at all times to this Agreement and the Livestream Service Terms of Use (including, but not limited to provisions regarding PROHIBITED USES, INDEMNIFICATION, LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY AND DAMAGES, and DISCLAIMERS OF WARRANTIES). If you previously maintained a Livestream Premium account, or were otherwise subject to the Livestream Premium Producer Terms of Use (the "Premium Account Period"), you agree that by now switching to a Livestream Free account, or otherwise using the Livestream Service, any Produced Content that you have licensed to Livestream or otherwise uploaded to, or displayed on the Livestream Service during the Premium Account Period, is retroactively subject to this Agreement (including, but not limited to Sections 4 and 5 below) and the Livestream Service Terms of Use as described in this Section (rather than the Livestream Premium Producer Terms of Use).
