TERMS OF SERVICE
These terms and conditions govern your use of the website and services enabled on that website (together referred to as the Platform) made available by QBL Media Pty Ltd.
The Platform is provided by QBL Media Pty Ltd (ABN: 73 602 663 141) (QBL, QBLM, we, us and our) to users (you and your and Client).
The Platform is a managed software service hosted in a ‘cloud-style’ online environment. The Platform functions to receive certain digital video data files (“Client Video” or “CV”) from you (in response to prompts from the Platform) and then performs certain calculations and deploys third party artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) services in order to create a Translated Client Video (“TCV”) which, as the name suggests, is a version of the Client Video in which the spoken words have been translated into a different language (as chosen by you, the Client).
QBLM’s processing of the Client Video involves the use of third party AI and ML services (Third Party Tools) in addition to, potentially, human authored language translation services.
These terms and conditions govern use of the Platform and the Services by you, the Client. You agree to comply with these Terms and any supplemental terms which may be applicable.

3.5 The Client acknowledges and accepts that, notwithstanding any business continuity and disaster recovery policy of the Data Centre:

SECTION 7: CLIENT ACKNOWLEDGEMENT - ASSUMPTIONS AND USE OF TCV

This is very important because the quality of the TCV is affected by the complexity of the underlying content contained in the CV.

The use of, and reliance upon a TCV is entirely at the discretion and risk of the Client.
