Terms & Conditions
Video Interchange will never release or sell your email address or any other information to anyone... PERIOD... Nor will Video Interchange ever contact you by any means for marketing purposes unless you have requested to be contacted for updates on new supported transfer formats... Otherwise, all contact information is retained for the sole purpose of contacting you in reference only to you order and for Federal/State tax reporting/auditing purposes as required by accepted accounting standards. If you ever receive an unsolicited email from Video Interchange for any other reason, you can be assured that it did not originate from us... Spoofing sender's email addresses seems to be the latest rage used by spammers to entice people to read their spam....
We make every reasonable effort to protect client data including the use of both hardware and software firewalls as well as running anti-virus software. However, no system no matter how sophisticated or seemingly impenetrable is 100% secure. Not even the Pentagon's systems, who seem to get routinely broken in to. With that in mind, the best strategy that we employ is not to retain critical financial information... In the case of credit/debit cards, we retain only the last 4 digits of your credit/debit card number after the job is complete... It is the very reason why repeat customers must call in new credit card information each time even if using the same card...
In fact, we actually recommend the use of PayPal for any web transactions made elsewhere on the web.

The information provided on this site in regards to audio/video/photo restoration, technical advise, tips and recommendations, is purely gratuitous on the part of Video Interchange, it's owners and assigns.

Though we have never had a loss of client material since the original business began operations in 1974 while client materials have been in our possession, we take all reasonable care to prevent loss or damage to client materials. We realize that many if not most materials submitted for transfer or recovery, are one of a kind, irreplaceable copies of high historical, personal or sentimental value. Unfortunately, we nor anyone else for that matter, have any way of assigning a monetary value to such materials, and even if we could, it would drive our insurance liability costs beyond the limits of affordability.
Thus when submitting videotapes, audio media, films, slides or any other media to us whether for duplication, conversion, repair, video transfer or for any other reason, you hereby acknowledge and agree that Video Interchange and any individual or business affiliated with Video Interchange shall not be liable for any loss or damage to such materials following receipt and during processing of such materials (even if due to our fault or negligence) and that the clientís sole remedy shall be replacement with a similar amount of blank video tape or the fair market value of the tape stock alone. Video Interchange makes no other warranty and assumes no other risk and shall not be liable for any indirect, special, incidental or consequential damages resulting from clientís use of our services.
Should you desire monetary compensation in case of loss or damage, you must secure your own insurance at your own expense. These are typically known as "Floater Policies"... The client further agrees by the mere act of submitting materials, that Video Interchange shall be held harmless and immune from any insurance subrogation proceedings.
Any media received in conjunction with unpaid invoices, are deemed to be abandoned after 120 days. Video Interchange at its sole discretion, reserves the right to dispose of any materials in any manner it sees fit, to include but not limited to: master tapes, wires, belts, cartridges , discs, cylinders and cassettes. We simply do not have the room to store forever, materials for which payment has not be received & for which the client for whatever reason has seen fit to have abandoned !
After 120 days and 3 attempts at contacting you by ANY combination of phone message or email, we can only then assume you changed your mind and the job and all materials received will be deemed abandoned.
Abandoned Materials: Once deemed abandoned, though we cannot make any guarantees, we will make best efforts to retain the materials for 2 years from date of receipt, after which they will be discarded. There is a $50 additional charge on top of the current rates in effect for locating materials deemed abandoned. In those cases, 100% of the new estimate must be paid up front.
We do not knowingly copy material which is copyright and does not meet the guidelines for duplication under the Fair Use Doctrine of US Copyright Law. Though we spot check for copyright infringements, there are many instances in the transfer process where we cannot screen every minute of tape or material submitted. Therefore the Client warrants that the videotapes, film, photos, slides or other media submitted to Video Interchange for transfer or processing, are not protected by copyright or the client certifies by the act of shipping the tapes to Video Interchange, that he either owns or has purchased Rights of Copy, or use of the materials meets the requirements under the accepted "Fair Use Doctrine" of US Copyright Law. As such, the client also agrees to protect and indemnify Video Interchange or it's assigns from any and all costs related to copyright infringement.
