THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS CONSTITUTE A BINDING
CONTRACT BETWEEN THE USER AND VYSTOCK.
2. What is VYSTOCK?
2.1 Vystock is a platform for hosting audiovisual content, which
is made available to those users who are interested in acquiring the rights to
one or more of them. In short, Vystock is a bank of audiovisual content
in which users can download videos, photos, or music and use them exclusively,
since, once a user acquires a content it disappears from the public stock of Vystock’s
3.1 The present terms and
conditions regulate a binding agreement between VYSTOCK and the users
which is composed of this contract for the acquisition of audiovisual content
in digital format without material support, as well as the agreement for the
assignment of exploitation rights on the audiovisual content that is acquired.
3.2 The moment in which the user,
having selected the content(s) to be acquired, pays the price established for
the same, shall be considered the moment of completion of the contract and
therefore the beginning of the validity of these conditions. To this effect,
the user, together with the content(s), will receive a copy of these
3.3 The terms and conditions of use
present conditions. The consent and acceptance of the two previous ones is done
separately, although for the download of the content it will be necessary to
process certain data. This is necessary for the execution of a contract to
which the user is a party or for the execution of the pre-contractual measures
necessary for the execution of the same.
3.4 The relationship between VYSTOCK
and the user shall at all times be that of independent parties and in no
event shall the collaboration agreement established herein imply any
employment, commercial or other type of dependence.
4.1 The prices shown on the website
do not include the corresponding VAT or any other tax applicable at the time.
These will be added to the price in accordance with the provisions of the
legislation in force at the time the transfer of rights occurs.
4.2 Prices will always be shown in
EURO currency (€).
4.3 VYSTOCK reserves the right to alter
them at any time in accordance with clause 13below. Such alterations shall not
affect the audiovisual content that has already been downloaded or is in the
process of being purchased or downloaded.
5. Content ownership
5.1 Regardless of any licenses or assignments that may be granted through
this platform, all content hosted is the property of VYSTOCK or VYSTOCK
has obtained the relevant licenses to host such content and to license or
assign the rights derived therefrom.
5.2 Therefore, the user does not
receive at any time the ownership of the audiovisual contents, but an exclusive
and transferable assignment of all the exploitation rights of the audiovisual
contents downloaded, under the conditions established in clauses 6 and 7, as
well as in the rest of the general conditions contained in this document.
5.3 Notwithstanding the foregoing, you shall note that once the user pays
the marked price, in addition to transferring the exploitation rights on the audiovisual
content(s), VYSTOCK proceeds to remove them from the catalog to ensure
the exclusivity of the content purchased by the user.
6. Terms of licensing
6.1 By paying the amount
established in the platform for each content, the user will become the
exclusive licensee of the exploitation rights over the audiovisual content,
with the ability to sublicense them. To this purpose, the moment of payment is
considered as the moment in which these particular conditions are completed. In
this sense, the licensee will acquire a transferable exclusive license on the
following rights: (i) right of reproduction; (ii) communication to the public;
(iii) distribution, with the limitations set forth in clause 6.5; (iv) dubbing
and subtitling; (v) and the right to make sequels, adaptations or second
Moreover, the possibility of
translating, adapting or modifying the audiovisual content in order to obtain a
derivative work and to receive benefits from the exercise of the rights derived
therefrom is also a part of the licensed rights.
6.2 The assignment of rights is
made without a time or geographical limit.
6.3 The rights are transferable to third
parties, subject to the limitations set forth herein. In any case, any
subsequent transfer will be void if it does not impose on the new acquirer the
limitations set out in these general conditions, whether such limitations are
found in this clause or somewhere else in this agreement. These limitations affect
the sublicenses granted by the user, by his third party licensees and by the
successive licensees of the latter, covering all licensees and sublicensees of
the audiovisual content(s).
6.4 The purposes for which users
may use the audiovisual content are (i) communication, internal or external;
(ii) advertising; (ii) marketing; (iii) prospecting and promotion; and (iv) or
decorative purposes, as well as any other similar activities.
The Users, notwithstanding
other potential limitations contained somewhere else in this agreement, shall
6.5.1 Use the audiovisual content in any way
that allows a third party to use, download, extract or obtain access to the audiovisual
content as an independent file, in particular the user may not upload the
content to download platforms/download links either via centralized or
decentralized servers or via P2P networks. In particular, the use of the
audiovisual content for inclusion in an online or physical catalog, whether in
the original format or in the form of the derivative work, is strictly
6.5.2 Take any action that implies or may imply
an infringement of the intellectual property rights or any other right of any
person or entity;
6.5.3 Register, or apply for registration of a distinctive sign that includes
6.5.4 Using the audiovisual content in a
pornographic, defamatory, or otherwise illegal manner, using the audiovisual
content in a manner that may be considered immoral, taking into account the
nature of the audiovisual content or using the audiovisual content for the
advertising and marketing of alcoholic beverages, harmful substances (such as
tobacco), weapons and gambling, adult entertainment clubs or analogous
establishments, the implicit or explicit support of trade union movements, political
parties or any explicit political opinion, and, additionally, for any other
purpose that may be considered illicit, illegal, degrading, obscene and, in
general, that contravenes the laws, morality or public order;
6.5.5 To the extent that this happens before the
price is paid, to remove, conceal or alter any distinctive sign relating to the
intellectual property of the audiovisual content, or that may give an image
that the user is the original owner or a legitimate licensee of such rights;
6.5.6 Assign its rights to a third party for uses that would
not be permitted to the user in accordance with the provisions of these general
6.6 The user is warned that when
downloading the content, he/she will receive the original file of the work.
In this sense, once the content has been downloaded,
the user shall be solely and ultimately responsible for the conservation of the
content. The fraudulent, negligent breach, either by action or omission, of
this duty of conservation constitutes the breach of a basic duty established in
the Intellectual Property Law.
The user and/or third parties
who, where appropriate, receive a sublicense, may be responsible for
satisfying, if applicable, equitable remuneration for the persons determined by
law, and acknowledge that VYSTOCK is not affected by this responsibility. In
this sense, if the purported uses of the audiovisual content exceed those
described in clause 6.4, the user or the subsequent licensees, in accordance
with the provisions of the Spanish legislation on intellectual property rights,
may be obliged to pay to the corresponding collecting association or entity, in
accordance with the tariff in force at that time, the corresponding equitable
remuneration. This may accrue for each right exercised, whether it is the
public communication of the work or part of it, the making available of it or
part of it by means of rental, or any other type of act of communication to the
mass public, by any means (whether a film projection or a different means), which
exists or may exist in the future, whether for consideration or not. As an
illustrative example, the cinematographic projection of the work, or part of
it, is included within the above acts of communication to the public accruing
an equitable remuneration. Also, the reproduction and distribution of private
copies may accrue this remuneration, which should be paid through the
corresponding collective management association or entities.
6.6.1 Only and exclusively in the case that this is done with respect to the
audiovisual content that the user has acquired from others to create the
derivative work, the user must credit VYSTOCK, pari passu with the
rest of the suppliers, as the supplier of the relevant audiovisual content.
This shall be made in its communication to the public, or as reproduction or
distribution, either in its original form or included in the derivative work;
failure to do so will constitute an infringement of intellectual property
rights of VYSTOCK with respect to which it reserves any action or claim
that may be promoted by law.
7.1 Except as provided in these terms and conditions, the audiovisual
content is provided on an «as is» basis, and therefore VYSTOCK does
not warrant or guarantee the accuracy and correlation between the content, its
title and the accompanying description.
7.2 Without prejudice to the
provisions of clauses 5.3 and 6.6, VYSTOCK shall retain the audiovisual
content(s) on its servers for a maximum period of 6 months. This is made for
the sole purpose of ensuring the enjoyment by the user of the rights acquired
over the audiovisual content, and in order to be able to replace the file in
case of loss, destruction, deletion, suppression, or misappropriation by a
7.3 VYSTOCK guarantees that in no case will the content be used
for the resale to third parties other than the user.

means, the user becomes aware of the existence of any content that is illicit,

intellectual or industrial property rights, or of any other kind, for third
parties or for the user, the user must immediately notify VYSTOCK by
e-mail -as indicated above- or by post -to the address indicated above- so that
it can proceed to take the appropriate measures, at its sole discretion. In the

b. documentation that accredits its condition
of holder or assignee;
c. the fact of the violation or infringement
and the exact location within the website of such act;

the owner’s consent.
9. Assignment of industrial property rights
9.1 Both VYSTOCK and the
user acknowledge that they are the legitimate owners or beneficiaries of all
applicable rights over the trademarks, trade names and any other distinctive
signs, drawings, caricatures, designs or similar elements.
9.2 Except as expressly provided in
these terms and conditions, nothing in these terms and conditions shall be
construed to imply that VYSTOCK or the user shall at any time receive
any ownership or right to use or exploit any of the rights associated with the
distinctive signs, trademarks, trade names, drawings, caricatures, designs or
9.3 Notwithstanding the foregoing,
upon acceptance of these terms and conditions, the user hereby revocably,
unlimitedly, temporarily and geographically assigns, free of charge and non-exclusively,
the right to use the user’s trademark or trade name, as well as any trademarks
associated with the user’s products, for the exclusive and sole purpose of
using such distinctive element for the promotion of VYSTOCK’s services
and to create a section of «accreditations» and/or «testimonials
and opinions» of users.
In the event that the user does
not wish to make this transfer, he/she may contact VYSTOCK by the means
indicated in these terms and conditions.

including reputational – or economic – both in terms of loss of earnings and
