Payment

Payments will be processed by a third party payment processor, Stripe, in accordance with its standard terms and conditions: https://stripe.com/gb/ssa. You hereby give consent:

to us sending you electronic communications (including via email and text) in relation to upcoming and completed payments managed via the Trint Platform;

for the payment processor to access your bank account which is nominated by you from time to time, and to either deduct or deposit the applicable amount, less any fee which may apply. See the Pricing Page for more information about applicable fees.

You acknowledge and agree that when using the Stripe service on our platform, you will comply with Stripe’s end user licence agreement in respect to your use of the Stripe service. You also acknowledge that Stripe’s privacy policy at: https://stripe.com/gb/privacy will apply to Stripe’s processing of any personal information you submit to Stripe via our platform.

If the card details are not updated after 9 days, we reserve the right to permanently delete your account and all data.

Third-Party Providers / External APIs

In order to implement certain functions, we use external service providers ("providers", "third-party providers") via a so-called "Application Programming Interface" ("API").

The requests are anonymised in this process. That is, no user-specific data is sent to the third-party providers. But by using the corresponding services on our platform, you agree to the following content being sent:

Text-To-Speech

Text-to-speech is provided using the following providers: Amazon Web Services, Inc. ("AWS"), Microsoft Corporation ("Microsoft"), and Google LLC ("Google"). When using the preview in the browser and when exporting the voice output as a WAV file, the texts are sent to the respective provider and then the voice output is generated. The WAV file is saved as new content in your project.

Content that is sent to text-to-speech providers is used as training data for the respective provider (AWS, Microsoft, or Google) to improve the speech output and is stored internally by the provider.

If you are concerned about this, you cannot use our service, as text-to-speech is a fixed component.

Automatic Speech Recognition

Automatic speech recognition is implemented via AWS Transcribe. To use this feature, your video’s audio track is sent to AWS and the recognized text is then saved as new content in your project.

Content that is sent to AWS for the purpose of automatic speech recognition is used as training data to improve speech recognition and is stored internally by AWS.

If you are concerned about this, do not use this plugin.

Machine Translation

Machine translation is performed using DeepL GmbH ("DeepL"). When using this feature, the text to be translated is sent to DeepL and the translated text is stored as new content in your project.

Content sent to DeepL for the purpose of machine translation will be deleted immediately after processing.

If you are concerned about this, do not use this plugin.

Your Content

VIDEO TO VOICE does not provide a data storage or backup service. We store your content only for processing in an active project; you are responsible for backing up your own work long-term.

Your projects and any associated text, audio, or video files are automatically deleted from our servers 30 days after a project is finished. Alternatively, you can delete a project manually at any time.

If you use text-to-speech or automatic speech recognition, the above restrictions apply. After a project is finished, your content will be available for download as a ZIP file for 30 days.

However, we will store the metadata associated with your productions in an internal database (e.g. number of minutes of film you processed). This is used, among other things, for billing purposes.

The audio/video content you submit to us (and all intellectual property rights therein) is owned by you or your licensor.

Your Rights

When you use our service, you retain all rights you have with respect to your content, including copyright. The only rights in relation to your content that you grant us are for the following two purposes:

to run your projects so that we can create new text, audio and video files from your content according to your instructions.

to implement text-to-speech, automatic speech recognition, and machine translation features through the aforementioned third-party providers.

We will not share your content or metadata associated with or generated from your content with any third party. The only exception to this is the transfer of the data specified above to third-party providers when using the text-to-speech, automatic speech recognition and machine translation features.

We may occasionally share statistical data about our users' productions with third parties, but when we do so, the data is presented in an aggregate form that is not attributable to any individual user.

New content created through our platform may be reused by you without restriction.

Your Responsibilities

If you make any of your content available through our service (or allow a third party to make it available), you are fully responsible for the content and any damages resulting from it. This is the case whether the content in question is text, an audio file, or a video file. By making your content available on our website or a third-party website through our service, you declare and guarantee that:

  • downloading, copying or using the content does not infringe any proprietary rights, including but not limited to the copyright, patent, trademark or trade secret rights of any third party;
  • if your employer has rights in intellectual property that you create, you either:
  • received permission from your employer to make the content available; or
  • received a waiver from your employer with respect to all rights in or for the content;
  • you have fully complied with all third-party licenses with respect to the content and have taken all necessary steps to successfully communicate the required terms to end users;
  • the content does not contain or install any viruses, worms, logic bombs, malware, Trojan horses or other harmful or destructive content.

Without limiting any of these representations or warranties, we have the right (though not the obligation) in our sole discretion to:

  • refuse or remove any content that, in our reasonable opinion, violates our policies or is in any way harmful or objectionable
  • or terminate or deny access to and use of the platform to any person or entity for any reason.

Modification to and Termination of a Service

We modify and optimise our platform on an ongoing basis. For example, we may add, adjust or remove features - or introduce or change restrictions on our services - taking into account the interests at stake.

If we discontinue our service, we will - to the extent possible - inform you in advance and give you the opportunity and sufficient time to export your data from this service, taking into account the respective interests.

If a third-party provider discontinues a service, we will inform you immediately and, taking into account the respective interests, endeavor to find an adequate replacement.

Disclaimer of Warranty

The services are provided "as is".

We and the third-party providers hereby disclaim all warranties of any kind; express or implied, including, but not limited to, the warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, and non-infringement.

Neither we nor the third-party providers guarantee that the website will be error-free or that access to it will be continuous or uninterrupted. You understand that you download or otherwise obtain content or services from our website at your own discretion and risk.

Copyright Infringement

We respect the intellectual property rights of others. If you believe that any material located on our platform or linked to our website infringes your copyright, you should notify us. We will respond to all notices, and if necessary or appropriate, remove the infringing material or disable all links to the infringing material.
