By using the WFCN Film Monetization Service, you agree to this Terms of Service Agreement. If you are an entity, the person registering the account must have the authority to bind the entity. The Agreement includes a mandatory arbitration clause detailed in Section 10.


2. Accounts

- Registration: To access certain features, create an account using your email. By doing so, you agree to receive notices from Vimeo and Producers.
