Licensees of all license types have permission to use the licensed 360 Video(s) as outlined in our terms below.

A purchased license is non-transferable and may not be re-sold, given or hired to any third party, except when the license holder is a developer who has developed a product for his or her client, which uses the 360 Video(s). The developer may then hold the license on behalf of their client. There can be only one client per license.

1. Permitted uses of our 360 Video 

You can use the licensed 360 Video(s) according to the following terms.

You may:

- Include any or all of the contents in your projects/programs and use the contents as stand alone;
- Cut, edit, dub, subtitle, voice-over (in any and all languages spoken in the licensed territory), alter, copy, and make any changes to the contents;
- Exploit and promote the contents and the licensee’s programs via the following means: linear rights (pay TV and Free TV, and Web TV for simulcast) and non linear rights VOD (subscribed based/ transaction based or advertisement based), Web (on standard platforms such as but not limited to social networks platforms, video streaming platforms, and custom made platforms & websites...), OTT, In Flight, Internet Streaming, Internet Downloading, Mobile Rights, Digital Rights;

YouTube videos 

You can use our 360 Video(s) to create and monetise as YouTube videos, however, you need to inform us of the videos that you place on YouTube so we can whitelist you. Please ensure that you provide a proper credit as described in point 3 (below). 

Personalised Programs

You can use our 360 Video(s) that you have licensed as individual clips repeatedly in programs that you create on a case by case basis for your clients or patients. Pain- and other therapists commonly use our 360 Video in this way. Please note that products such as these cannot be duplicated, distributed or sold by your clients. Only you, the licensee, have the right to create and sell recordings that incorporate the 360 Video(s). Should your clients wish to use any 360 videos from Atmosphaeres, they require their own licenses.

Use of our ready-made, full-length Nature Relaxation VR Videos (e.g. The Bavarian Alps, Ireland VR, Dream Beach 360, etc.) for the purpose of use in any COMMERCIAL enterprise (e.g. hospitals, dialyses-, cancer- or other therapeutic practices) is subject to a monthly subscription model on a per-video and per-location/institution basis. Please contact us for details.

Use of our ready-made, full-length Nature Relaxation VR Videos (e.g. The Bavarian Alps, Ireland VR, Dream Beach 360, etc.) for the purpose of RESEARCH is FREE as long as they are used for charitable, strictly non-commercial purposes. Please get in contact with us to discuss your particular program.

2. Prohibited uses of our 360 Video 

Distributing the 360 Video by itself 
You cannot re-sell our 360 Video or distribute our 360 Video as a '360 Video only' product. This specifically includes distribution via stock video sites, be it either of individual clips or cut and/or edited versions of multiple clips or ready-made Nature Relaxation VR Videos.

Creating derivative works 
You cannot alter our 360 Video and then claim that the 360 Video is yours. For example, you cannot add music, nature sounds or super-imposed visual footage (computer generated or video) to our 360 Video and then sell or distribute the 360 Video individually as your own product. You have to create a substantially different product where our 360 video is only a small component of your entire product.

Sub-Licensing our 360 Video(s) 
You cannot sub-license our 360 Video(s) or derivative works of our 360 Video(s) to any third party, nor can you sell our 360 Video(s) as part of a production 360 Video library, as stock 360 Video(s), royalty free 360 Video(s) or 360 Video sample library. 

Transfer a License
You cannot transfer a license for any of our 360 Video(s) to any third party, except where you are producing on behalf of a third-party and hand over the license at the end of the production. You have to notify of of this transfer and you then do not have a valid license any longer. Should you develop a new product after the license transfer, for a new client or yourself, you or your new client requires a new license.

Other restrictions
