Thank you for using the Scene It platform available at www.sceneit.app and the products, services, and features we make available to you as part of the platform (collectively, the “Service”). 

Our Service

The Service allows you to discover, watch, and submit videos, provides a forum for people to develop new audiences, inform, and inspire others, and acts as a showreel for creatives. 

Your Service Provider

The entity providing the Service is Whats on in Cape Town Pty Ltd (registration number 2021 / 781183 / 07), a company operating under the laws of South Africa, located at 24 Palmerston Road, Woodstock, Cape Town. 

Applicable Terms

Your use of the Service is subject to the terms outlined below (“Terms”). Please read these Terms carefully and make sure you understand them. If you do not understand these Terms, or do not accept any part of it, then you may not use the Service. 

These Terms expressly supersede any prior agreements or arrangements we had with you. 

Who may use the Service? 

Anyone may use the Service. However, if you are under 18, you must have your

parent or legal guardian’s permission to use the Service. Please have them read this Agreement with you.

you see any Content you believe does not comply with these Terms or violates your rights, you can report it to us via email.

Any right not expressly granted to you in these Terms remains the right of Scene It or the respective rights holders. This means, for example, that using the Service does not give you ownership of any intellectual property rights in the Content you

The Service is only available on compatible devices connected to the internet. It is your responsibility to obtain these devices internet access necessary to use the Service. We do not guarantee that the Service, or any portion thereof, will work on any particular device. 

Develop, Improve and Update the Service 

Scene It is constantly changing and improving the Service. As part of this continual evolution, we may make modifications (to all or part of the Service) such as adding or removing features and functionalities, offering new digital content or services, or discontinuing old ones. 

We may also need to alter or discontinue the Service, or any part of it, to make performance or security improvements, make changes to comply with law, or prevent illegal activities on or abuse of our systems. 

These changes may affect all users, some users or even an individual user.

Your Content and Conduct 

Submitting Content

Anyone can submit a video to the Scene It platform. 

You may use your Content to promote your business or artistic enterprise. If you choose to upload Content, you must not submit to the Service any Content that does not comply with these Terms or the law. For example, the Content you submit must not include third-party intellectual property (such as copyrighted material) unless you have permission from that party or are otherwise legally entitled to do so. 

You are legally responsible for the Content you submit to the Service. We may use automated systems that analyze your Content to help detect infringement and abuse, such as spam, malware, and illegal content.

Rights you Grant 

You retain all of your intellectual property ownership rights in your Content. In short, what belongs to you stays yours. However, we do require you to grant certain rights to Scene It and other users of the Service, as described below. 

Licence to Scene It 

By providing Content to the Service, you grant to Scene It, and to the curator of the hotspot at which your video is filmed, a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, transferable, sublicensable licence to use that Content (including to reproduce, distribute, modify, display and perform it) for the purpose of operating, promoting, and improving the Service. 

Licence to Other Users

You also grant the curator of the Scene It Hotspot at which your video is located a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free licence to access your Content through the Service, and to use that Content (including to reproduce, distribute, modify, display, and perform it) only as enabled by a feature of the Service. 

Duration of Licence

The licences granted by you will continue until the Content is removed from the Service as described below. 

Once removed, the licences will terminate, except where the operation of the Service, use of the Content was permitted before your removal, or the law requires otherwise. 

For example, removal of Content by you does not require Scene It to: 

(a) recall Content that is being used by other users within any limited offline viewing functionality of the Service; or

(b) delete copies we reasonably need to keep for legal purposes.

Right to Monetize 

You grant Scene It the right to monetize your Content on the Service (and such monetization may include displaying ads on or within the Content or charging users a fee for access). These Terms do not entitle you to any payments from this monetization. 

Removing Your Content

You may remove your Content from the Service at any time. You must remove your Content if you no longer have the rights required by these Terms. 

Removal of Content by Scene It

If we reasonably believe that any of your Content
(1) is in breach of these Terms or
(2) may cause harm to Scene it, our users, or third parties
we reserve the right to remove or take down some or all of such Content. 

We will notify you with the reason for our action unless we reasonably believe that to do so: 

(a) would violate the law or the direction of a legal enforcement authority, or would otherwise risk legal liability for Scene It or our Affiliates; 

(b) would compromise an investigation or the integrity or operation of the Service; or 

(c) would cause harm to any user, other third party, Scene It or our Affiliates.

Other Legal Terms 


We provide the Service with reasonable care and skill. We make no representations or warranties, express or implied, including but not limited to warranties as to the

accuracy, correctness, suitability, reliability, availability of the Service or that any Content you submit will be accessible or stored on the Service.


By law, consumers have certain rights that cannot be excluded or altered by a contract. Nothing in these Terms affects those rights you may have as a consumer. 

All information or opinions of users available on the Service or in any Content are those of the authors and not Scene It. While we make every reasonable effort to present such information accurately and reliably on the Service, we do not endorse, approve, or certify such information, nor guarantee the accuracy or completeness of such information.

Limitation of Liability

All users: Nothing in these Terms is intended to exclude or limit any party’s liability for: death or personal injury; fraud; fraudulent misrepresentation; or any liability that cannot be excluded or limited by law. 

To the extent permitted by applicable law, Scene It and its Affiliates will not be responsible for: 

  1. losses that were not caused by Scene It or its Affiliates’ breach of these Terms; 
  2. any loss or damage that was not, at the time that these Terms was formed between you and Scene It, a reasonably foreseeable consequence of Scene It or its Affiliates breaching these Terms; or 
  3. the Content submitted by any user, or for the defamatory, offensive, or illegal conduct of any user.

Business Users only: If you are using the Service for the purpose of your trade, business, craft, or profession, (a “Business User”), to the extent permitted by applicable law, the following limitations of liability will also apply: 

Scene It and its Affiliates will not be responsible for lost profits, revenues, or data; loss of opportunity or anticipated savings; indirect or consequential losses. 

Scene It takes reasonable security measures to ensure the safety and integrity of the Service and to exclude viruses, unlawful monitoring and/or access from the Service offline. However, Scene It does not warrant or represent that your access to the Service will be uninterrupted or error-free or that any information, data, content, software, or other material will be free of bugs, viruses, worms, trojan horses or other harmful components. Your access to and use of the Service remains solely at your own risk and you should take your own precautions accordingly.


Users indemnify and hold harmless Scene It, its shareholders, directors, employees, and affiliates from any demand, action or application or other proceedings, including for attorneys’ fees and related costs such as tracing fees, made by any third party, and arising out of or in connection with the user’s use of the Service in any way. 

Users agree to indemnify, defend, and hold Scene It harmless from any direct or indirect liability, loss, claim and expense (including reasonable legal fees) related to the user’s breach of these Terms. 

This clause will survive termination of these Terms.

Third-Party Links

The Service may contain links to third-party websites and online services that are not owned or controlled by Scene It. Scene It has no control over, and assumes no responsibility for, such websites and online services. Be aware when you leave the Service; we suggest you read the terms and privacy policy of each third-party website and online service that you visit.

About these Terms

If we materially change these Terms, we’ll provide you with reasonable advance notice and the opportunity to review the changes, except (1) when we launch a new product or feature, or (2) in urgent situations, such as preventing ongoing abuse or responding to legal requirements.

Scene It may transfer all or part of these Terms to an Affiliate or, if Scene It is sold, to a third party.

No Waiver

If you do not comply with these Terms and we do not take action immediately, this doesn’t mean that we are giving up any rights that we may have (such as the right to take action in the future).

these Terms, that dispute will be resolved according to the laws of your country of residence.
