1. All Media on the CineMoti website is protected by United States and international copyright laws and treaties. CineMoti and/or the various filmmakers and/or companies that provide Media to CineMoti ("Owners") own all rights, including the copyrights in and to the Media. CineMoti and/or its Owners reserve all rights in and to the Media not expressly granted to you by the terms of this license.

If this occurs, and all payments in addition to any of CineMoti's costs of collection, bank fees and/or credit card processing fees are not received by CineMoti within ten (10) days from the original payment date, then your license for use of the Media and/or account will be terminated.
3. CineMoti has no obligation to refund any fees paid by you for Media under any circumstances. However, in the case that CineMoti determines that you are entitled a refund for all or part of any fees, the refund will only be made to the credit card or PayPal account originally used to purchase the Media.
4. The work you produce with the Media must be used for yourself, client, employer or customer, who must be the End-User of your work. You agree to take all reasonable steps to prevent third parties from duplicating any Media.
