DATA FAIR USAGE


ITI Digital is committed to delivering a Visual Marketing Platform for you to manage all your visuals in one place, whether that be photos or videos. We have developed this Data Fair Usage Policy to ensure that all customers get an optimal level of service.

11.1. Video Storage. We offer unlimited video storage as part of your ITI Digital license so that you can focus on running your business. Video storage is unlimited as long as you only upload videos that are used to run your business. Examples of behaviors that fall outside this fair usage policy include:

• Uploading videos that are for entertainment, such as movies

• Uploading the exact same video many times

• Uploading videos that belong to other organizations

In the event that we detect such behaviors, we will notify you by email so that you can remove certain videos that violate this fair usage policy. In the event that you do not take action within 10 business days of the email notification, we reserve the right to  disable the upload functionality of your platform, and/or remove certain videos from your platform.

11.2. Video Bandwidth. The videos that you have in the ITI Digital platform can be viewed in your platform or shared via a sharing portal. These activities consume bandwidth. Each month, 200 GB of bandwidth is included in your ITI Digital license. In the event that your monthly bandwidth limit is exceeded, we will notify you by email so that you can either i) remove certain videos from your online properties or ii) upgrade your ITI Digital license to get a higher bandwidth limit. We will work with you closely to select the option that best fits your business needs. In the event that neither option is chosen within 10 business days of the email notification, we reserve the right to remove certain videos from your platform at our discretion.
