Just want the jist of our TOS? Here are the non-legal highlights. Or you can read the full legal version here.
Jist.tv and the Jist mobile apps are products owned by HiLytes, Inc. The HiLytes Products are designed to make it easier for you find, watch, share and collect video moments. Many of the video clips link back to the original full video because, let’s face it, it sucks to see a great clip and not know where it came from.
Using our Products
You can use our Products if you are at least 13 years old or have parental or guardian permission. You also need to agree to our service terms, here’s the most important point:
We’re happy to share our Products with you as long as you don't do anything evil to our products or users. This is generally good life advice too.
You retain the ownership you have of any intellectual property you post to our Products. Your videos remain your videos.
When you upload your videos or create video highlight clips, you’re giving us permission to make them available in all the ways you would expect us to (for example, via your collections, public viewing powered by us and prepared in the correct formats needed for sharing).
When you post something publicly, others may choose to comment on it, making your Content part of a social conversation that can’t later be erased without retroactively censoring the speech of others. Generally when you make something publicly available on the Internet, it becomes practically impossible to take down all copies of it.
No porn, no spam, don’t be a jerk, don’t harm other users or our Products. Kumbaya
Third Party Links
Our video highlight clips that are designed to be shared and link back to the full videos which are available on third party sites like YouTube.
If you share clips through third party sites such as Reddit or Facebook you are subject to their terms.
It’s shocking but people post bad stuff on user-generated content sites. We try to remove offense posts quickly but you still might run into one before we have a chance to take it down. If you see offensive stuff, please report it to us.
Hey! Thanks for checking out our Terms of Service ("TOS"). We know, usually this page totally sucks because it's full of legal language. Well, sorry, our TOS is still pretty legal but we did try to add comments in plain English to make it a little less painful. Here goes:
Jist.tv and the Jist mobile apps are products owned by HiLytes, Inc. The HiLytes products are designed to make it easier for you find, watch, share and collect video moments. Many HiLytes video clips link back to the original full video so your friends can see it too.
a. Who can use HiLytes
You may use our Products if:
1. You are at least thirteen (13) years of age. Anyone under the age of 13 needs to have parental or guardian permission to use our Products.
2. You have the right, authority and capacity to enter into these Terms of Service.
3. Agree to be legally bound by these Terms of Service.
Some of our Products may be software that is downloaded to your computer, phone, tablet, or other device. You agree that we may automatically upgrade those Products, and this TOS will apply to such upgrades.
b. Our license to you
Subject to these Terms and our policies we grant you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, and revocable license to use our Products.

We're happy to share our Products with you as long as you don't do anything evil to our products or users. This is generally good life advice too.
For purposes of this Agreement: (1) the term "Content" means a creative expression and includes, without limitation, video, audio, photographs, images, illustrations, animations, logos, tools, written posts, replies, comments, information, data, text, software, scripts, executable files, graphics, Themes (as defined below), and interactive features, any of which may be generated, provided, or otherwise made accessible on or through the Services; (2) the term "User Content" means Content that a User submits, transfers, or otherwise provides to HiLytes. Content includes, without limitation, all User Content.
Your Rights in User Content:
Users retain ownership and/or other applicable rights in User Content, and HiLytes and/or third parties retain ownership and/or other applicable rights in all Content other than User Content.
You retain the ownership you have of any intellectual property you post to HiLytes. Your videos remain your videos.
User Content License to HiLytes:
When you provide User Content to HiLytes you grant HiLytes a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, sublicensable, transferable right and license to use, host, store, cache, reproduce, publish, display (publicly or otherwise), perform (publicly or otherwise), distribute, transmit, modify, adapt (including, without limitation, in order to conform it to the requirements of any networks, devices, services, or media through which the Services are available, and create derivative works of, such User Content. The rights you grant in this license are for the limited purposes of allowing HiLytes to operate in accordance with its functionality, improve the Products and Services, and develop new Products. The reference in this license to "create derivative works" is not intended to give HiLytes the right to make substantive editorial changes or derivations, but does, for example, enable collection, which allows HiLytes Users to collect User Content from one another.
When you upload your videos or create video highlight clips, you're giving us permission to make them available in all the ways you would expect us to (for example, via your albums, public viewing powered by HiLytes and prepared in the correct formats needed for sharing).
Note that this license to your User Content continues even if you stop using the HiLytes, primarily because of the social nature of Content shared through HiLytes - when you post something publicly, others may choose to comment on it, making your Content part of a social conversation that can't later be erased without retroactively censoring the speech of others.
Generally when you make something publicly available on the Internet, it becomes practically impossible to take down all copies of it.
You also agree that you will respect the intellectual property rights of others, and represent and warrant that you have all of the necessary rights to grant us this license for all Subscriber Content you transfer to us.
We reserve the right to remove or modify User Content for any reason, including User Content that we believe violates these Terms or our policies.
No porn, no spam, don't be jerk, don't harm HiLytes or other users. Kumbaya.
