<h1>VDO Media Terms of Service</h1>
This agreement was written in colloquial English commonly understood in the US. To the extent anyone has translated this information into another language, any disparity of intention or spirit born out of such limitations as those inherent in linguistics, or in general which creates a conflict with this US English version, will not supersede this document in whole or in part.
VDO Media is a business marketing community. There are potentially many vertical markets in which our community model may be expressed. These Terms of Service are inclusive of all brands and sub brands of VDO Media. Our real estate marketplace, VDORE.media is a specific example covered under these terms.
<h1>Statement of Rights and Responsibilities</h1>
VDO Media and its branded business marketing communities welcome all users to participate in open, friendly and helpful engagements. It is intended that the VDO Media communities are a benefit to all who come. For this to occur, certain basic practices and safeguards must be merited by all. VDO Media will regulate behavior as necessary according to these principles with an ever-present mindset of the highest good. We ask that you volunteer your cooperation in exchange for access and membership.
Although we may attempt to notify you when major changes are made to these Terms of Service, you should periodically review the most up-to-date version. VDO Media will, at its sole discretion, modify or revise these Terms of Service and other policies at any time, and you agree to be bound by such modifications or revisions. Nothing in these Terms of Service shall be deemed to confer any third-party rights or benefits.
VDO Media is a business marketing community. The intention is to provide platforms for local businesses to engage potential customers through the video medium. Likewise, the platforms are intended to provide consumers with the ability to compare local businesses in whatever locality they need. If you are vacationing, you should be able to compare local businesses without having to read every travel log on the destination (well that can be fun too). Same if you are new to a neighborhood. VDO Media will attempt to provide a safe, secure and informative environment where local businesses can be successful in serving their consumer base.
These Terms of Service apply to all users of the Service, including users who are also contributors of content on the Service. “Content” includes the text, scripts, graphics, photos, sounds, music, videos, audiovisual combinations, interactive features and other materials you may view on, access through, or contribute to the Service. The Service includes all aspects of VDO Media, including but not limited to all products, software and services offered via the VDO Media family of websites. To the extent that VDO Media may also, from time-to-time, release mobile applications and software products, subscription services and information products, your agreement extends with such product usage without limitation.
The Service may contain links to third party websites that are not owned or controlled by VDO Media. Unless otherwise stated with a specific third party, VDO Media has no control over, and assumes no responsibility for, the content, privacy policies, or practices of any third party websites.

You are solely responsible for the activity that occurs on your account, and you must keep your account password secure. You must notify VDO Media immediately of any breach of security or unauthorized use of your account.
