SECTION 1: DESCRIPTION OF THE DAILYMOTION SERVICE

1.2. By accessing and/or using the Dailymotion Service, without being logged into a Dailymotion Account, You (“You” or “Your” as applicable) will be hereinafter a “Viewer.” As a Viewer, You will only have the ability to access, view or share videos available on the Dailymotion Service, but will not be able to benefit from all the other features available on the Dailymotion Service. A “Dailymotion Account” means the video content storage space on the Dailymotion Service which is dedicated to a User (as defined below) on the Dailymotion Service that can be created by signing up for a Dailymotion Account via www.dailymotion.com.

1.3. If You want to be able to upload videos and access some other features of the Dailymotion Service, You will need to first create a Dailymotion Account and have Your email address validated (see Section 1.4.) at which point You will be a “User.” Note however that after having created Your Dailymotion Account and until You have validated Your email address according to the process defined below, You will be an “Account Applicant” and will not be able to upload videos or access the other features of the Dailymotion Service.

You agree to immediately notify Dailymotion of any unauthorized use of Your User ID, password or any other breach of Your Dailymotion Account security.

1.6. As a User, You will also have the ability to access some additional features from the Dailymotion Service, and if and when You have accepted the terms of the Dailymotion Partner Program, You will then be a “Partner” and will have the opportunity to monetize Your Content uploaded on Your Dailymotion Account.

1.7. If You are a User or a Partner, You may notably upload video files (that must be compliant with the Terms) on the Dailymotion Service. Any and all elements posted through Your Dailymotion Account on the Dailymotion Service are deemed to be “Your Content”.

Any User who violates the rules set out above is subject to the consequences set out in Section III.

For more information on this type of content, you can read the dedicated article on the Dailymotion help center.

Dailymotion prohibits any content infringing copyrights. The distribution of any content reproducing all or part of a work protected by a copyright without the authorization of the author or the person who holds the rights for this exploitation is indeed forbidden. 

In particular, it is forbidden for our Users to post any content including all or part of : 

  • Pre-existing music and/or songs (recordings, soundtracks of films, series, etc.);
    • Audiovisual works (film, series, video clips, TV show, advertisement etc.),
      • Dramatic works (play, opera, musical, performance and other live shows);
      • Graphic and plastic works (painting, sculpture, photography, architecture, design, comics, manga, illustration, graffiti, digital creation, etc.);
      • Video games;
      • Written works (literary works, courses, press articles, poetry collections, etc.);

of which the User is not the author and for the distribution of which no necessary authorization has been obtained. 

However, it should be noted that:

  • The notion of ‘work’ is extremely broad. Indeed, originality of a work is the only condition to access copyright protection, without the merit of the work and/or its destination being relevant. Thus, the User must bear in mind that all content is potentially subject to copyright protection and therefore its exploitation must be authorized.
  • That the exploitation of a work that has fallen into the public domain may remain subject to certain requirements. Indeed : 
    • It must always respect the moral rights (which remains even after entering the public domain);
    • The exploitation of an adaptation and/or interpretation of the work that has fallen into the public domain remains subject to the authorization of the rights holders of the adaptation and/or interpretation concerned when these latter have not fallen into the public domain. 
  • That certain uses of protected works may be possible without the authorization of their authors or of the person who holds the rights to such works when they fall within the scope of the exceptions to copyright and/or related rights provided for by the applicable laws and regulations (and in particular in France by articles L.122-5 L and L.211-3 of the Intellectual Property Code, as detailed in our Help Centre at the following address: https://faq.dailymotion.com/hc/en-us/articles/360020018900-Exceptions-to-copyright) which must always be interpreted strictly.

Any User who violates the rules set out above is liable to the consequences set out in Section 3.

For more information on this type of content, you can read the dedicated article on our Help Center.

K. CONTENT INFRINGING OTHER’S RIGHTS

Dailymotion prohibits the diffusion of content infringing privacy, trademarks or including defamatory statements

Any User who violates the rules set out above is subject to the consequences set out in Section III.

For more information on this type of content, you can read the dedicated article on the Dailymotion Help Center. 

II) DETECTION AND REPORT OF PROHIBITED CONTENT

As a hosting service provider, Dailymotion has no general legal obligation to monitor the Content uploaded on the Dailymotion Service nor any general legal obligation to investigate facts or circumstances revealing illicit activities.  Nevertheless, Dailymotion must immediately remove or disable access to any illicit Content after being informed of its existence. 

Dailymotion has therefore put in place detection and reporting tools allowing to be aware of the presence of Prohibited Content on the Dailymotion Service.

The presence of Content that may violate the Prohibited Content Policy can be brought to Dailymotion attention by three means: 

via the automatic detection devices set up on the Dailymotion Service; (A)

via Users’ reporting through the reporting tool present near each video; (B

or through contacting Dailymotion by e-mail or by letter (C). 

A. AUTOMATIC DETECTION DEVICES

The automatic detection device implemented by Dailymotion include:  

1. List of key words and short sentences

Dailymotion has put in place a list of keywords and short phrases that allow it to automatically detect and, if necessary, prevent the uploading of Content that is obviously in violation of this Prohibited Content Policy. Thus, when uploading Content to the Service, if a word or short phrase in the title or in the description of the video is listed, the Content in question will be forwarded to our moderation team. This list is updated weekly based on previous “Moderation Decisions”.

2. Technologies for the protection of copyrighted content

Dailymotion works with two providers of digital fingerprint recognition solutions: Audible Magic for audio detection and INA (Institut National de l’Audiovisuel) for video detection. Each time a Content uploaded on the Dailymotion Service matches the digital fingerprint databases of our two providers, the Content will be automatically removed.

Despite their high efficiency and their innovative character, these technologies require the collaboration of the concerned rightsholders, who must communicate their content to one and/or the other of these companies in order to create the associated digital fingerprints. 

Dailymotion is at the disposal of rightsholders to help them contact these societies, in order to prevent the future uploading of content that the rightsholders have protected in this way.

B. THE REPORTING TOOL FOR PROHIBITED CONTENT 

Dailymotion encourages its Visitors to report any Content that may violate the Prohibited Content Policy. These reports allow the Dailymotion Service to remain a safe space for everyone. Please note that it is not necessary to have a Dailymotion account to report Prohibited Content. 

Reporting is the quickest way for Visitors to alert Dailymotion of any Content that they believe violates this Prohibited Content Policy. All reported Content is reviewed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by our dedicated team.

To report Content, you need to: 

  1. Click on the “Report” button available near each video;
  2. Specify whether the report concerns the entire video or only a specific extract (a time stamp is assigned by default but can be modified); 
  3. Select the main motive for the report;
  4. Describe in the dedicated  (free) text field any information that will allow Dailymotion to process the report;
  5. Fill in your name and surname(s) as they appear on an official identity document issued by an administration as well as your e-mail address. This information will allow Dailymotion to inform the Visitor who has reported the Content of the follow-up given to the report.

In the event of a report of copyright infringement or infringement of other rights, the Visitor will be redirected to a dedicated form and must necessarily include the URL address of the reported video. Otherwise, Dailymotion will not be able to process the report.

The reporting forms specific to copyright infringement or other rights infringement are also available via this link.

Any report sent to Dailymotion through the reporting tool will be treated in accordance with the formalism required by French law. 

Any report based on another legislation, it must be submitted to Dailymotion by e-mail or by post in accordance with the provisions below.

C. E-MAIL OR POSTAL REPORTS

The presence of Content that may violate the Prohibited Content Policy may also be reported to Dailymotion by e-mail or by letter. In such case, all of the following elements shall be communicated to Dailymotion:

1) Depending on the status of the author of the report, the elements necessary to process the request will differ. If the author of the report is :

  • A physical person: he/she must specify his/her name, first name(s) and e-mail address; 
  • A legal person: the legal form and name of the legal person must be specified, as well as an e-mail address for the follow-up of the report;
  • An administrative authority: the name of the administrative authority concerned must be specified, as well as an e-mail address for the follow-up of this report.
  • If the report is made in the name of a third party, it is necessary to provide Dailymotion with all supporting documents attesting that the author of the report is duly authorized to represent this third party.
  • The main motive for the report (by reference to the Categories of Prohibited Content described in Section I of this Policy);

No action will be taken on requests that do not include all the elements that would allow Dailymotion to process the report. 

Reports made by e-mail or by letter must be sent to Dailymotion at the address defined below according to the country of residence of the author of the report:

  • Reports from US residents:

Regarding reports of copyright infringement, we remind you that certain uses of protected works may be permitted without the authorization of their authors or of the person who holds their rights when they fall within the scope of the exceptions to copyright and/or related rights provided for by the applicable laws and regulations (and in particular in France by articles L.122-5 L and L.211-3 of the Intellectual Property Code, as detailed in our Help Centre at the following address 

Before reporting any Content for copyright infringement, it is thus recommended to check whether the use of the protected work in question is not permitted under one of these exceptions. (link to the article on exceptions)

Please note that reports of copyright infringement or infringement of other rights must be made by the owner of the rights concerned or by its duly authorized representative.

III. CONSEQUENCES OF NON-COMPLIANCE WITH THE PROHIBITED CONTENT POLICY

A. MODERATION ACTIONS APPLICABLE TO THE CONTENT

If Dailymotion is aware of the uploading of a Prohibited Content on its Service, Dailymotion will apply a moderation 

action adapted to the nature of the Prohibited Content (“Moderation Action“).

The applicable Moderation Actions may impact:

  • The availability ; (1.) 
    • The visibility ; (2.), 
      • or the accessibility of the Contents. (3.)
  • 1. Moderation Action affecting the availability of Content: removal of Content

Subject to the provisions below, any Prohibited Content will be removed from the Dailymotion Service as soon as Dailymotion is effectively aware of it.

  • 2. Moderation Action affecting the visibility of a Prohibited Content: application of an age restriction

Dailymotion may decide to apply an age restriction to any Content which could offend the sensitivity of young audiences. The parental filter, activated by default on the Dailymotion website and applications, prevents Visitors from being exposed to Content put online with an age restriction. Consequently, when the parental filter is activated, the Visitor can neither access nor be exposed to such Content.

  • 3. Moderation Action affecting the accessibility of a Content: application of a geo-blocking measure

If the concerned Content violates a specific law/regulation in a given country/territory, Dailymotion can implement geo-blocking measures. These measures allow to make the Content unavailable in a specific country or territories without altering its accessibility in other countries/territories.

B. APPEALING A MODERATION DECISION

Dailymotion has established internal appeal mechanism of the decisions taken by its moderation team following the detection and/or reporting of Prohibited Contents (“Moderation Decision(s)”).

This internal appeal system allows:

  • the author of a report to contest the Moderation Decision taken following his report;
    • the User who has put Content online that has been the subject of a Moderation Action mentioned in III A) of this policy to contest the corresponding Moderation Decision.

This internal appeal mechanism is available by contacting our Support teams (see Section II. A. C) or, in certain cases, via a URL link indicated in the e-mails sent by the moderation team to the author of the report or to the User who posted the Content online.

This URL link redirects to an appeal form which must be filled in, providing all the mandatory information required to process such appeal. 

Please note that this appeal system is open for a period of 6 (six) months from the Moderation Decision. 

Dailymotion is committed to process quickly and impartially these appeals.

If the moderation team considers that the Content subject of the appeal is not illicit, nor incompatible with this Prohibited Content Policy, the Content concerned will be maintained or made accessible and visible again on the Dailymotion Service. 

On the contrary, if the moderation team considers that the Content that is subject of the appeal is illegal or incompatible with this Prohibited Content Policy, the Moderation Action in progress will remain or a Moderation Action will be applied to the relevant Content. 

In any case, the author of the appeal will be informed of the outcome of his appeal as soon as possible by e-mail sent to the address given on the appeal form.

If you consider that a Decision of Moderation goes against the law or if you consider yourself a victim of a Content put online on the Dailymotion Service, legal recourses are at your disposal (such as filing a complaint or requests for summary proceedings).

3.1. Purposes of the Processing and Description of the Processing Services

3.1.a. Purposes of the Processing

Dailymotion operates the Dailymotion Service. The Data Controller is a User of the Dailymotion Service who uploads Content onto the Dailymotion Service which incorporates Third-Party Personal Data. In any case, Dailymotion is not collecting this Third-Party Personal Data and has no prior knowledge of the presence of any Third-Party Personal Data within Your Content.

As such, You are the Data Controller of this Third-Party Personal Data, and You will ensure that You have a legal basis to process the Third-Party Personal Data incorporated in Your Content (ex. consent, legitimate interest, etc.). Dailymotion shall process the Third-Party Personal Data in compliance with the Applicable Data Protection Laws and for the below-mentioned purposes, according to the instructions of the Data Controller stipulated in the present DPA. Additional instructions regarding the Processing of such Third-Party Personal Data can be provided by You either by using the available technical tools and features of the Dailymotion Service or by addressing them directly to us through Dailymotion’s Help Center. Note that in the event Your instructions are incompatible with the way the Dailymotion Service operates or are in violation of the Terms or any other Dailymotion policies, Dailymotion will not be obliged to comply with such instructions, but You may stop the Processing by removing such Content at any time.

By uploading Your Content onto the Dailymotion Service, You will need to use the Dailymotion Service’s technical features for the following purposes:

  • Storing Your Content on the Dailymotion Service;
  • Making Your Content available to the public according to the terms that You determine by using the functionalities available on our Service (ex. deciding to place the Content under public or private mode).

    • On data hosting services (ex. cloud services) of third-party Data Sub-Processors (but only for the metadata associated with Content);
  • Making available the Video Player for the distribution of Your Content to the public;
  • Making available technical tools allowing You to manage Your Content.

3.2. Duration of the Processing

The Processing of Your Third-Party Personal Data will last until Your Content is removed for any reason whatsoever from the Dailymotion Service (ex. closure of Your Account, deletion of Your Content by You, or deletion of Your Content by Dailymotion following a notification that Your Content is in violation of the present Terms). However, note that despite the removal, for technical reasons related to the Dailymotion Service the video files and/or metadata associated with Your Content may not be completely deleted from our system until up to 30 days after the removal, and in the case of metadata specifically it will be retained for longer than 30 days if such retention is required by law or necessary to establish, exercise or defend legal claims.

The Data Subjects of this Processing are those whose Third-Party Personal Data is incorporated into Your Content.


3.4. Categories of Third-Party Personal Data

The categories of Third-Party Personal Data processed depend on what Your Content (including associated metadata) contains. This may include any data that identifies or allows the identification of the Data Subjects such as their image (still or animated), voice, name, or any other personal information about them.


4. Security and Confidentiality of Third-Party Personal Data

Dailymotion has in place and shall maintain adequate physical and organizational measures necessary to preserve the security of the Third-Party Personal Data integrated within the Content (ex. aimed at preventing destruction, loss, distortion, damage or unauthorized access to such Third-Party Personal Data). These measures are adapted to the level of the risk presented by the Processing. Nevertheless, we remind You that the Dailymotion Service is not a storage service and that You should take all necessary precautionary measures for the backup and preservation of Your video files. Dailymotion does not assume any liability for the loss of the said files in accordance with Section 5 and 6 of the Terms.

Nonetheless, Dailymotion undertakes to implement the following organizational measures and to make its staff and its Sub-Processors respect them:

  • ensure that the persons authorized to process Third-Party Personal Data or otherwise involved in the delivery of the Services are aware of, trained and organized to provide sufficient guarantees of security and confidentiality with respect to Third-Party Personal Data; and
  • implement access and authorization management rules such as the following:
    • centralized management of access rights,
    • gradation of access and use rights,
    • periodic reviews.
  • take all reasonable steps to prevent the misappropriated or fraudulent use of processed Third-Party Personal Data.

In addition, the main technical measures currently implemented by Dailymotion (some of which are specifically applicable for the protection of Third-Party Personal Data) are as follows:

  • network segmentation and filtering between zones,
  • multi-factor authentication,
  • event log, collection and centralization of logs,
  • anti-virus,
  • management of security patches,
  • security / flow encryption (SSL),
  • Internal PKI,

In the event of a Third-Party Personal Data Breach (as defined in the GDPR) of which Dailymotion is aware, Dailymotion commits itself to notify You of this Third-Party Personal Data Breach as soon as possible either at the email address associated with Your User Account (or any other email address communicated to Dailymotion by You for this purpose) or through any other appropriate means (ex. banner notification visible from Your User Account). Dailymotion commits to cooperating with You should You choose to notify the Supervisory Authority or an affected Data Subject of the Third-Party Personal Data Breach. Please note that the competent Supervisory Authority under this DPA is the CNIL.

Furthermore, Dailymotion undertakes to provide You with all reasonable assistance in order to help You in respecting Your obligations regarding the security of the Third-Party Personal Data provided for by the Applicable Data Protection Law. You understand and agree that the reasonable costs of such assistance from Dailymotion, if any, will be at Your expense.

6. Data Subjects Rights

As a Data Controller, it is Your responsibility to respond to the requests of the Data Subjects relating to the exercise of their privacy rights under applicable law and to inform the Data Subjects about the details of the Processing operations and that, at the latest at the time of collection of the Third-Party Personal Data or prior to any further Processing of the Third-Party Personal Data.

In this regard, Dailymotion shall:

  • Communicate to You, as soon as possible, any request for deletion, correction, communication, access to the Third-Party Personal Data or limitation of the Processing of the Third-Party Personal Data, except where this communication is prohibited by the applicable authorities; and
  • Assist You, by all appropriate and reasonable measures, in fulfilling Your obligation to comply with the requests of Data Subjects. Note that Dailymotion reserves the right to charge You for all reasonable costs and expenses related to assisting You with such requests.

Further, in this regard, You agree:

  • That Dailymotion will communicate with You on the email address associated with Your User Account and/or another email address that has been designated by You to Dailymotion’s DPO;
  • That Dailymotion may share this email address and/or any other contact information provided within Your account (ex. the postal address) with the Data Subjects as the contact address of the Data Controller. Should You wish to designate any contact information different from what is in Your User Account, You should do so by contacting Dailymotion’s DPO;
  • That You shall respond to requests from Data Subjects within the timeframes set forth in the Applicable Data Protection Law;
  • That You shall notify Dailymotion — by replying to the notification sent by Dailymotion as described in this Section – of Your response to each of the Data Subjects requests including, if applicable, whether You invoked an extension of the time to respond. In the absence of such a notification from You within the timelines prescribed by law, then You authorize Dailymotion to proceed with the removal of Your Content from the Dailymotion Service. However, in the event that the Data Subjects claims that Your Content contains sensitive and/or special Third-Party Personal Data (as defined under Applicable Laws) or the Third-Party Personal Data of a minor, You authorize Dailymotion to proceed to the immediate removal of access to the Content without waiting for Your response (though removal may be reversed depending on Your response). Note that this process is separate and in addition to any other content removal process described under the Terms (ex. removal of Your Content because it violates copyright law).

7. Your Representations and Warranties

You represent and warrant to Dailymotion that:

  • You have obtained and will maintain for the duration of Your use of the Dailymotion Service all rights and authorizations necessary to allow us to provide You with the Dailymotion Services;
  • All instructions You transmit to Dailymotion regarding the Processing of Third-Party Personal Data, as described under Section 3.1.a. are not in violation with the Applicable Data Protection Laws and, if You act in capacity of a Data Processor for another Data Controller, are compatible with any instructions You have received from such Data Controller. In particular, You shall ensure that You have been authorized to designate us as a Data Sub-Processor;
  • the Third-Party Personal Data has been collected in compliance with the Applicable Data Protection Law;
  • You have obtained the consent of the Data Subjects or have established an alternative legal basis for the collection of said Third-Party Personal Data and You undertake to produce evidence of such consent or legal basis upon a request from Dailymotion, the Data Subjects and/or competent authorities.

8. Requests

8.1 Audit Requests

As a Data Controller, You have a right to audit the Processing activities undertaken by Dailymotion as a Data Processor within the limitations set forth in this Section.

If You reasonably believe that Dailymotion does not respect one of its specific obligations as Your Data Processor, You may request an audit by submitting a description of this specific suspected failure and audit request to Dailymotion, using the contact details listed in Section 10 of this DPA. As part of the audit, Dailymotion undertakes to provide You with the information in its possession and strictly necessary to demonstrate the respect of Dailymotion’s obligations as Your Data Processor as defined under this DPA and the Applicable Data Protection Laws subject to the respect of Third-Parties’ rights and the security requirements of Dailymotion’s computer systems.

For sake of clarity, You shall not be entitled to receive any information outside of this limited scope in relation to this audit right. You may request such audit not more often than once per thirty-six (36) month period and under the condition that You inform Dailymotion at the latest sixty (60) working days before its planned starting date. Such audit must be performed by an external third-party auditor at Your expense at Dailymotion’s headquarters and during normal business hours and must be limited to two business days (unless the circumstances do not reasonably allow it to be completed within such time). The auditor must be subject to strict contractual obligations of confidentiality, and the results of such audit must also be treated as confidential information and must be shared with Dailymotion. Dailymotion may object in writing to an auditor appointed by You to conduct any audit if the auditor is, in Dailymotion’s reasonable opinion, not suitably qualified or independent, a competitor of Dailymotion, or otherwise manifestly unsuitable. Any such objection by Dailymotion will require You to appoint another auditor.

If the audit reveals a non-respect of Dailymotion’s obligations, Dailymotion will take reasonable measures to remedy it. Furthermore, if You are not satisfied with the result of such audit, You may always exercise Your right to at any time, stop or suspend the use of the Dailymotion Service.

Furthermore, You agree that if during the twenty-four (24) months preceding Your audit request, the subject of Your audit request has already been subject to another audit initiated by Dailymotion or by a third-party, the sharing of such audit’s results with You will satisfy Dailymotion’s audit obligation to You as described in the present Section.

8.2 Public Authorities Requests

In its role as a Data Processor, Dailymotion shall maintain appropriate measures to protect Third Party Personal Data in accordance with the requirements of applicable data protection Laws and regulations, including by implementing appropriate technical and organizational safeguards to protect Third Party Personal Data against any interference that goes beyond what is necessary in a democratic society to safeguard national security, defense and public security.

If Dailymotion receives a legally binding request to provide Third Party Personal Data to a Public Authority, Dailymotion shall, unless otherwise legally prohibited, promptly notify You and provide You with a summary of the nature of the request. Dailymotion may challenge the request if, after careful assessment, it concludes that there are reasonable grounds to consider that the request is unlawful, and may pursue possibilities of appeal and/or seek interim measures with a view to suspending the effects of the request until the competent judicial authority had decided on its merits. It shall not disclose the Third Party Personal Data requested until required to do so under the applicable procedural rules. Dailymotion agrees it will provide the minimum amount of information permissible when responding to a request for disclosure, based on a reasonable interpretation of the request. For the avoidance of doubt, this DPA shall not require Dailymotion to pursue action or inaction that could result in civil or criminal penalty for Dailymotion such as contempt of court.


9. Third-Party Personal Data Transfers outside the European Economic Area

If, during the provision of the Services, You are established in a Member State of the European Economic Area, Switzerland or the United Kingdom, the Third-Party Personal Data incorporated into Your Content are transferred to a Third Country as necessary to provide the Processing Services.

Therefore, according to the Applicable Data Protection Law, the module #2 – Controller to Processor of the Standard Contractual Clauses are applicable to this transfer of Third-Party Personal Data by You, the Data Controller (acting as the data exporter) to Dailymotion, Your Data Processor (acting as the data importer). It is agreed by the Parties that:

  • the description of the Processing as required under Annex I of the Standard Contractual Clauses is provided under Sections 3, 4 and 10 of the present DPA and,
  • the description of the technical and organizational security measures as required under Annex II of the Standard Contractual Clauses are provided under Section 4 of the present DPA, and
  • the list of Sub-Processors as required under Annex III is provided under Section 5 of the present DPA.

By accepting these Terms, You accept to be bound by these Standard Contractual Clauses and their annexes.

In the event that Dailymotion either directly or indirectly transfers Third-Party Personal Data to a Third Country through a third-party Sub-Processor (instead of Processing such Third-Party Personal Data itself directly), Dailymotion will ensure that such transfer is done only in the presence of legally adequate safeguards. For example, by integrating the Standard Contractual Clauses within such Sub-Processor’s contract and/or by obtaining a commitment from such Sub-Processor to enter into Standard Contractual Clauses with its own Sub-Processors (if any).

As of the last update of the Terms, Dailymotion has conducted an assessment of the applicable laws and regulations or practices of the Third Countries of destination where the Processing of Third Party Personal Data may occur. It has been established that the Third Party Personal Data that is transferred to these Third Countries is stored in our own proprietary datacenters and for a limited duration in time (all new videos are duplicated on the servers of these datacenters but then only copies of the videos that got popular in the territories closer to the datacenter are kept for a longer time on these servers in Third Countries). Also, Dailymotion is designed as a video-sharing platform, meaning that the videos which may contain Third Party Personal Data are public by default, and therefore accessible to anyone.

Also, Dailymotion has no reason to believe that the laws and practices in any Third Country of destination applicable to the Processing of Third Party Personal Data, including any requirements to disclose Third Party Personal Data or measures authorizing access by a Public Authority (e.g. a government agency, or law enforcement authority, including judicial authorities), prevent Dailymotion from fulfilling its obligations under this DPA. However, if Dailymotion reasonably believes that any existing or future enacted or enforceable laws and practices in a Third Country of destination applicable to the Processing prevent it from fulfilling its obligations under this DPA and may represent a threat to Third Party Personal Data’s security and integrity, it shall promptly notify its Users, including You, and it will use reasonable efforts to make available to the affected Users a change in the Services. If Dailymotion is unable to make available such change, You may remove Your Content at any time from the Dailymotion Service.

As such, Dailymotion has determined that the risks of infringing such Third Party’s  privacy associated to such transfer to a Third Country is limited and consequently, that the existing measures in place shall be sufficient to ensure the efficiency of the protection of the rights of the data subjects whose  Third Party Personal Data is related to.
