Please direct all questions regarding the VUDU Service to firstname.lastname@example.org.
VUDU reserves the right in its sole and absolute discretion to change how it operates the VUDU Service and the Website. You should not consider any description of how the VUDU Service works to be a representation or obligation with respect to how the VUDU Service will work in the future.

Cancellation of your VUDU Account will also terminate your access to Content that you have purchased and/or rented. Additionally, in the event of a refund (which VUDU may or may not grant in its sole discretion) for any other reason by VUDU other than termination or cancellation of your VUDU account, VUDU will terminate your access to any Content for which a refund was provided. Once your account has been closed, you will not be able to re-open your VUDU Account in the future.
You understand and agree that the Content is licensed by VUDU from Content Providers. Copyrights in the Content are owned by the Content Providers and protected by the copyright laws of the United States, as well as other intellectual property laws and treaties.

You have a limited right in the Content for personal, non-commercial use only on devices compatible with the VUDU Services. You may not edit, modify, copy, distribute, transmit, display, perform, reproduce, publish, license, translate, create derivative works from, transfer, alter, adapt, sell, rent, lease or sublicense any Content, or facilitate any of the foregoing.

You may not attempt to circumvent, avoid, bypass, remove, deactivate, impair or otherwise defeat any encryption, rights signaling or copy protection technology in which the Content is wrapped or otherwise associated. You may not decompile, copy, reproduce, reverse engineer, disassemble or otherwise reduce the computer file in which the Content is stored to a human-readable format. Any unauthorized copying or other activities that infringe upon the intellectual property rights of the Content Providers/owners of the Content is prohibited, and you expressly agree to the automatic termination of the VUDU Service if you engage in any infringing activities.

VUDU eGifts are digital movies and TV programs that you buy as gifts for your friends. For more information about VUDU’s eGift program, click here http://www.vudu.com/egiftingtermsandconditions.html
You may have the opportunity to stream an electronic copy of eligible physical disc(s) purchased from participating stores via InstaWatch or purchased via Walmart.com. InstaWatch requires the following: a) a current and valid VUDU account (you may use your Wal-Mart.com credentials to register for a VUDU account) b) proof of registration of your Wal-Mart.com or VUDU account, as instructed by Wal-Mart upon purchase of any eligible physical disc(s); and (c) scanning your receipt containing the eligible DVD or Blu-ray Disc purchase into the Walmart.com application via either the Savings Catcher or InstaWatch section of the Walmart.com application or providing your phone number at checkout when you purchase an eligible DVD or Blu-ray Disc (if available). Additionally, certain physical discs purchased may require you to register on a third party site or otherwise meet requirements of such third party sites (e.g., Ultraviolet™, Disney, etc.). We will not bill you for eligible digital downloads via InstaWatch but require you to maintain an accurate method of payment (i.e. current valid credit card) on file for other purchases you may make and for fraud prevention purposes.
In order to make InstaWatch available to you, we may need to request certain information from you during check-out at participating stores or on Walmart.com. We request this information to verify your participation in InstaWatch and to identify eligible disc purchases. Provision of such information is not required to complete your purchase but is necessary to allow you to redeem your electronic copy. To have InstaWatch available to you, you agree that Wal-Mart, its subsidiaries, affiliates, or other members of the Wal-Mart corporate family can share your DVD purchase information with VUDU, which is an affiliate of Wal-Mart, and that VUDU can share your purchase information with Wal-Mart and other Wal-Mart subsidiaries, affiliates, or other members of the Wal-Mart corporate family. If you purchased a physical disc at Walmart.com, order fulfillment times to receive your electronic copy may vary. An email will be sent to you after fulfillment of your order.
In the event you watch any portion of the electronic copy provided to you as part of Instawatch, you will not be permitted to return any physical discs purchased by you even if such physical disc is unopened and in its original packaging and VUDU reserves the right to charge you a rental or ownership fee for such electronic copy. Similarly, if you return such physical disc prior to streaming the electronic copy, VUDU will revoke your access to such electronic copy.
Disc to Digital:
You may have the opportunity to covert your physical Blu-ray™ and DVD discs into electronic copies that may be stored and viewed through the VUDU Service via the Disc to Digital program. The Disc to Digital program is only available for physical Blu-ray™ and DVD titles that have been legitimately purchased and are presently owned by you. VUDU reserves the right to refuse conversion of a title, or to limit or cancel your access to a previously converted title, if VUDU reasonably believes the title does not meet, or no longer meets, the purchase and ownership criteria set forth in this paragraph.
We will determine the selection, availability and quality of all Content provided on the VUDU Service. The selection, quality and availability of the Content offered can/may be unique to each VUDU Account and VUDU-compatible device. Not all Content on the VUDU Service is available at all times to all users. For example, Content that is available for rental may not be available for purchase and Content that is available for purchase may not be available for rental. Not all Content is appropriate for all users. If you are a parent, it is your responsibility to monitor the Content selections and viewing habits of your children. You can set certain parental controls in your account profile that allow you to control the availability of and/or access to certain Content.
You may link up to five (5) VUDU Devices to your VUDU Account in order to view Content (each, a “Linked Device”), provided such Linked Device may only be linked to a single VUDU Account at a given time. [NOTE: Computers that stream content via the Internet are not required to be linked to your VUDU Account and will not be considered a “Linked Device”; provided, however that any computer that is used to download Content via the VUDU2Go service will require a link to your VUDU Account and will be considered a “Linked Device.”] You may not concurrently stream or view content to more than two (2) Linked Devices at any given time.
VUDU Community/Your Personal Information:
VUDU offers you several ways to share your VUDU experience with others and interact with other members of the VUDU community through the Website and/or a VUDU Device (the “VUDU Community”). Because the features of the VUDU Community are always changing and improving, the available features and information that is shared may change from time to time. These changes may take place without notice to you and may not be described in VUDU's Terms of Service. The VUDU Community is designed for you to share information with others.
THEREFORE, BY USING THE VUDU COMMUNITY FEATURE AND ALL RELATED FEATURES, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT YOU ARE CONSENTING TO THE RELEASE OF INFORMATION ABOUT YOU TO A PUBLIC FORUM, INCLUDING OTHER MEMBERS OF THE VUDU COMMUNITY, USERS OF THE VUDU SERVICE AND OTHER VISITORS TO THE VUDU WEBSITE. IF YOU DO NOT WANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOU, INCLUDING PERSONALLY IDENTIFYING INFORMATION, TO BE SHARED IN A PUBLIC FORUM, DO NOT USE THE VUDU COMMUNITY FEATURES.
Use of the VUDU Community feature is for your personal, non-commercial use and is at your own option and risk.

These elements may change without notice to you, and the degrees of associated information sharing and functionality may also change without notice.
VUDU may share information with The Digital Entertainment Content Ecosystem, LLC, the provider of the UltraVioletTM content management service, regarding your usage (including streaming and downloading) of UltraVioletTM-compatible Content.
If you send us any submissions (e.g. e-mails, letters, postings to chat rooms, boards or contests), feedback, creative suggestions, ideas, notes, drawings, concepts or other information through the VUDU Service, your VUDU Account or any social media account VUDU may maintain from time to time (e.g., Twitter, Facebook, etc.) (collectively, Submissions”), they will be deemed to be our property and we will not be liable for any use or disclosure of such Submissions. Without limitation of the foregoing, we shall exclusively own all now-known or hereafter existing rights to any and all Submissions of every kind and nature throughout the universe and shall be entitled to unrestricted use of the Submissions for any purpose whatsoever, commercial or otherwise, without compensation to the provider of the Submissions. The content of any Submissions must not be illegal, obscene, threatening, defamatory, invasive of privacy, infringing of intellectual property rights or otherwise injurious to third parties or objectionable and may not consist of or contain software viruses, political campaigning, commercial solicitation, chain letters, mass mailings or any form of “spam.” You may not use a false e-mail address, impersonate any person or entity or otherwise mislead as to the origin of the Submissions. We reserve the right (but not the obligation) to remove or edit any Submissions, but we do not regularly review posted Submissions.

You acknowledge and agree that you assume full responsibility for the conduct of those to whom you disclose your account information or password. If you use a public or shared computer or unprotected mobile device, you should always log out at the end of each visit to the VUDU Website. As an additional security measure, the parental controls in your account management profile allow you to restrict purchasing through your VUDU Account by requiring that a passcode be entered prior to finalizing any purchase. If you believe that you may be victim of identity theft involving your VUDU Account, you should notify customer service and report any information about this instance to your card issuers and local law enforcement. VUDU reserves the right to place any account on hold at any time with or without notification to you in order to protect itself and its partners from what it believes to be fraudulent activity. VUDU is not obligated to credit or discount a membership for holds placed on the account by either a representative of VUDU or by the automated processes of VUDU.
Termination by VUDU:
We reserve the right to terminate your VUDU Account and/or your use and access to the VUDU Service at any time with or without cause. If your VUDU Service is terminated for any reason, your credit card will be refunded any U.S. dollar balance that remains in your VUDU Account.
