If you register on behalf of a business, you represent to Prezi that you have the authority to bind that business and that your acceptance of this Agreement will be treated as acceptance by that business.
Changes and Modifications. Prezi may change or amend these terms. If we make material changes, we will notify you, either through the user interface, in an email notification, or through other reasonable means. Your use of the Service after the date such change(s) become effective will constitute consent to the changed terms. If you do not agree to the changes, you must immediately stop using the Service. Otherwise the new terms will apply to you.
As long as you comply with this Agreement, Prezi grants you a limited, revocable, non-exclusive, non-assignable, non-sublicensable right to access and use the Service as it is intended to be used and in accordance with this Agreement and applicable law. We grant you no other rights, implied or otherwise.
General Description. The Prezi Service is a living presentation tool for visualization and storytelling without slides. The Service combines creative thinking and technological expertise to allow you to seamlessly create your own high-quality presentations, post them to the internet, and share them with friends and colleagues.
As a condition of use, and the licenses granted to you herein, you agree to the following:
Some Prezi accounts are offered with a free trial period. Such free trials are limited to one-per-user. Users must not fraudulently obtain (or attempt to obtain) additional trial periods beyond the single free trial term.
Users must be at least 13 years old. Users must be 13 years of age or older to use the Service. By using the Service you represent that you are 13 or older, and that you will not permit a minor under the age of 13 to use the Service, your Prezi account, or otherwise interact with the Service. Prezi will never knowingly solicit or accept personally identifiable information or other content from a user or visitor who Prezi knows is under 13 years of age. If Prezi discovers that a user under 13 years of age has created an account, or that a user or visitor under 13 years of age has posted personally identifiable information or other content to the Service, Prezi will terminate the account and remove the information or other content.
Prezi offers a variety of user accounts. You can find out about all the types of accounts, as well as their features and pricing, here.
Prezi offers a number of ways to share, or not share, your presentation with others.
Prezi Public (free) Accounts. If you have a Prezi Public (free) account, all of the content you create, including all of the information within your presentations, and your user name will be available to anyone who has access to the internet (“Public User Content”). Public presentations can be viewed by other Prezi users, will appear in the searchable Prezi database, and will be available for others to access and view online. Accordingly, you hereby do and shall grant to each User and to the public a worldwide, non-exclusive, revocable license to access, view and publicly perform your Public User Content. This license ends when you delete the presentation or your account is closed (either by you or by us), except to the extent that the content has been shared with others and they have not deleted it.
Paid Prezi Accounts. If you are making use of the Service to display or edit Private User Content for profit, you are required to have a paid Prezi account. If you have an educational or paid Prezi account, your user name may be shared by Prezi with others who we think might be interested in you, but you can choose to make your content Public User Content, or Private User Content. Presentations designated as Private User Content, will not be available to the public. Rather, they will be available to you, and to those Prezi users with whom you have chosen to share the content. You may invite one or more people (a “Viewer”) to view your presentation by sending them a “share” link. You can learn more about sharing here. You hereby do and shall grant to each Invited Viewer a worldwide, non-exclusive, revocable license to access, view and publicly perform your Private User Content. This license ends when you delete the presentation or your account is closed (either by you or by us), except to the extent that the content has been shared with others and they have not deleted it.
Sharing with edit rights. Regardless of whether your presentation has been designated Public User Content or Private User Content, you may choose to share a presentation in a manner that allows the person you’ve shared the presentation with (a “Co-editor”) to edit that presentation. You can learn more about sharing with edit rights here. You hereby do and shall grant to each Co-editor a worldwide, non-exclusive, revocable license to use, store, reproduce, modify, create derivative works, communicate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display, distribute and transmit the content of which they are Co-editors. This license ends when you delete the content or your account is closed (either by you or by us), except to the extent that the content has been shared with the Co-editors and they have not deleted it.
Allowing Re-use. If you designate your content as Public User Content, you may choose to “allow re-use” of that content. When you allow re-use of your Public User Content, you hereby do and shall grant to each user of the Service a worldwide, non-exclusive, revocable license to use, store, reproduce, modify, create derivative works, communicate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display, distribute and transmit your content. This license ends when you delete the presentation or your account is closed (either by you or by us), except to the extent that the content has been shared with others and they have not deleted it. The “allow reuse” option is enabled by default for Prezi Public users when creating new Prezi presentations but can be disabled at any time.
Prezi for Teams Accounts. If your account is part of a Prezi for Teams account, your account is subject to the terms and conditions of the agreement between Prezi and the owner of the Prezi for Teams account, i.e. the entity (the “Team Administrator”) that is financially responsible for any fees associated with the Prezi for Teams accounts belonging to that entity and which assigned your Prezi for Teams account to you. Those terms may be in addition to or different from the terms and conditions in this Agreement. Please note that the Team Administrator controls your Prezi for Teams account and may, among other things:
Please ask your Team Administrator about the specific conditions applicable to your Prezi for Teams account. You hereby do and shall grant to the Team Administrator a worldwide, non-exclusive, revocable license to use, store, reproduce, modify, create derivative works, communicate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display, distribute and transmit the Public User Content or Private User Content of your Prezi for Teams account. This license ends when you delete the presentation or your Prezi for Teams account is closed (either by you, the Team Administrator or by us), except to the extent that the content has been shared with others and they have not deleted it.
Business Accounts. If you sign up for a Prezi Public Account or a Paid Prezi Account with an e-mail address using a domain owned by an organization (“Organization”) then, depending on your country of habitual residence and the agreement entered into between us and the Organization, your account (a “Business Account”) is subject to the terms and conditions of the agreement between Prezi and the Organization. Those terms may be in addition to or different from the terms and conditions in this Agreement. Please note that the Organization controls your Business Account and may have the same rights with regard to your Business Account that a Team Administrator has with regard to a Prezi for Teams account.
If you convert your account to a Business Account, the Organization may prevent you from subsequently converting your account to another account type. Please ask your Organization about the specific conditions applicable to your Business Account. You hereby do and shall grant to the Organization a worldwide, non-exclusive, revocable license to use, store, reproduce, modify, create derivative works, communicate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display, distribute and transmit the Public User Content or Private User Content of your account. This license ends when you delete the presentation or your account is closed (either by you or by us), except to the extent that the content has been shared with others and they have not deleted it.
The Organization may request Prezi to block your account until you either convert your account to a Business Account or you associate a personal e-mail address with your account.
In order to provide the Service to you in accordance with these terms, we need certain licenses from you in order for us to, e.g., host, store and display the content. For example, we need the right to publicly display/perform the work to allow us to display it on the computer monitor of any party who is not the copyright holder. We need the right to reproduce the content so that it can be saved to our servers. We need to create derivative works and modify the content, for example, when transcoding an uploaded image into a format that will work most efficiently with the Service.
With respect to Private User Content, you hereby do and shall grant to Prezi (and its successors, assigns, and third party service providers) a worldwide, non-exclusive, revocable, royalty-free, fully paid, sublicensable, and transferable license to use, host, store, reproduce, modify, create derivative works, communicate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display, distribute and transmit the content SOLELY FOR THE PURPOSE of providing you, and those with whom you have shared your presentations, with the Service. This license ends when you delete your Private User Content or your account is closed (either by you or by us), except (i) to the extent that your Private User Content has been shared with others and they have not deleted it, (ii) that if you are a habitual resident of a Member State of the European Economic Area, we retain a license to maintain a back-up copy of your Private User Content for three years and (iii) that if you are not a habitual resident of a Member State of the European Economic Area, we retain a license to maintain a back-up copy of your Private User Content indefinitely.
With respect to Public User Content, you hereby do and shall grant to Prezi (and its successors, assigns, and third party service providers) a worldwide, non-exclusive, revocable, royalty-free, fully paid, sublicensable, and transferable license to use, host, store, reproduce, modify, create derivative works, communicate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display, distribute and transmit the content (1) for the purpose of providing you, and those with whom you have shared your presentations (including the public), with the Service; and (2) in connection with promotion and marketing of Prezi products and services, including without limitation allowing third parties to search or index the content, in connection with email promotions, product demonstrations, and the like. This license ends when you delete your Public User Content or your account is closed (either by you or by us), except (i) to the extent that your Public User Content has been shared with others and they have not deleted it and (ii) that we retain a license to maintain a back-up copy of your Public User Content indefinitely.
Regardless of whether you designate content public or private, Prezi makes no claim of ownership to your User Content, and obtains no rights to your content other than as provided for herein.
Prezi makes it easy for users with qualified accounts to change a presentation’s public/private, and “allow reuse” status at any time.
However, uses made of your presentation or the underlying User Content, whether by Prezi or its users, are subject to the licenses that were in place at the time such use was originally made by the person or entity who originally made the use. For example, licensed uses of Public User Content, or content that allows reuse, may continue to be made after such content is designated Private User Content, by those users who previously used the content under the prior license.
Prezi gives you the option, when creating or editing a presentation, to search for and insert third party content, such as images, into your presentation. Such third party content is subject to certain license terms. For example, if you use an image that is licensed pursuant to a Creative Commons license that prohibits commercial use, you may not use the image for commercial purposes. Some license terms may limit the manner in which you are permitted to share content with others, or to allow re-use of a presentation. You agree to review and comply with the license terms applicable to any third party content in a presentation.
You agree to pay the then-current fee for the account type (e.g., Public, Enjoy, Pro, or the like) you have selected. If your account began with a free trial, the current fee for the account type you have selected will automatically and immediately be charged to your payment instrument or account on the date your free trial expires. If your account did not begin with a free trial, the current fee for the account type you have selected will automatically and immediately be charged to your payment instrument or account on the date you signed up and then every 30 or 365 days after (depending on the billing cycle which applies to your account). Fees charged for one account type may not be credited towards other account types. All currency references are in U.S. dollars.
To protect against potential fraud, Prezi may take steps to verify the validity of the credit card information you provide to us. The verification process may include debiting an amount between $0.01 and $0.99 from your credit card account and then immediately crediting the same amount back to your credit card, as well as asking you to verify the amount debited in order to confirm that you are in possession of your credit card. Prezi will only use this process to screen for fraud and will not otherwise debit your credit card account except as part of a transaction conducted through your account for the Service. By providing Prezi with your credit card information, you authorize Prezi to debit and credit your credit card account for an amount less than one dollar for such verification purposes.
Payment for subscriptions is non-refundable. If you cancel your reoccurring payment option, your account will remain active until its next renewal date. If you delete your account before the end of the term for which you paid, your cancellation will take effect immediately. In either case (cancellation or deletion), you will not be given any refund.
If your credit card is invalid for any reason, your paid Prezi account will revert to a Prezi Public account and will be subject to the limitations of a free Prezi Public account; provided, however, that Prezi reserves the right to cancel your account entirely in such case. You will have the option of deleting any User Content from your account prior to its reversion to a Prezi Public account. Prezi further reserves the right to cancel, or revert to a Prezi Public account status, the account of any user who attempts to fraudulently obtain Prezi educational pricing.
If you believe that Prezi, or any user of the Service, has violated a copyright, trademark or other right you claim in your work, please contact us pursuant to the U.S. Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) at email@example.com and review our copyright policy for more details on how to properly notify us of a DMCA issue.
When you upload User Content on or through the Service, you represent and warrant that, with respect to all User Content that you upload, transmit, publish and disseminate through the Service, (a) you have all the rights and licenses necessary to use, reproduce, publish, display publicly, perform publicly, distribute, or otherwise exploit such User Content in connection with the Service (and to grant to Prezi the licenses set forth in this Agreement); (b) the User Content will not infringe or otherwise violate the copyright, trademark, or other intellectual property rights of any third party; and (c) you have the consent, release, and/or permission of each identifiable person depicted in your User Content to upload, transmit, publish, and/or disseminate their name and/or likeness through the Service.
All text, graphics, user interfaces, visual interfaces, photographs, trademarks, logos, sounds, music, artwork, content, and computer code (collectively, “Prezi Content”), including but not limited to the design, structure, selection, coordination, expression, “look and feel,” and arrangement of such Prezi Content, contained on the Service is owned, controlled, or licensed by or to Prezi, and is protected by trade dress, copyright, patent, and trademark laws, and various other intellectual property rights.
As a user of the Prezi Service, Prezi grants to you a non-assignable, non-transferable, non-sublicensable license, revocable at any time at Prezi’s sole discretion, to use (i) the Prezi name and (ii) the Prezi logo, unaltered, unmodified, and as it appears on the prezi.com website solely for the purpose of truthfully referring to Prezi, including for use in creating a website that explicitly references Prezi (the “Use License”). In addition to the restrictions above, such Use Licenses are expressly conditioned on: (i) no Prezi Content may be used in a manner that creates confusion among consumers or that suggests that you (or your website) are sponsored or endorsed by Prezi, or affiliated with Prezi, (ii) no Prezi Content beyond the Prezi name and logo may be used, (iii) any such use must be of the full Prezi name and/or unaltered and current Prezi logo, (iv) any such use may in no way disparage Prezi, any user of the Prezi Service, or any third party, and (v) any website that uses Prezi Content must include prominent text to the effect that “this website is not affiliated with or sponsored or endorsed by Prezi.” You agree to make no other uses of the Prezi name and logo beyond those expressly allowed herein, pursuant to a Use License.
Except as expressly provided in this Agreement or otherwise permitted by law, no Prezi Content may be used, copied, reproduced, modified, republished, uploaded, posted, publicly displayed, publicly performed, publicly performed by means of a digital audio transmission, encoded, translated, transmitted, or distributed in any way to any other computer, server, website, or any other medium for publication or distribution or for any commercial enterprise or purpose, without Prezi’s express prior written consent.
You agree that Prezi may, at its sole discretion and without prior notice, terminate your account, your access to the Service, and/or block your future access to the Service. By way of example, but not by way of limitation, we may terminate your account if we determine that you have violated this Agreement or other agreements or guidelines that may be associated with your use of the Service. Please note that it is Prezi’s policy to terminate the accounts of users who repeatedly violate the intellectual property rights of third parties. Prezi will grant you a pro rata refund of any subscription fees only in case Prezi terminates your account without cause.
If Prezi takes any legal action against you as a result of your breach of this Agreement, Prezi will be entitled to recover from you, and you agree to pay, all reasonable attorney’s fees and costs of such action, in addition to any other relief granted to Prezi.
YOU EXPRESSLY UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK. THE SERVICE IS PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS. PREZI AND ITS SUBSIDIARIES, DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, STOCKHOLDERS, AND LICENSORS (THE “PREZI AFFILIATES”) EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ALL REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES, AND CONDITIONS OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, MERCHANTABLE QUALITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, TITLE OR ANY WARRANTY OR CONDITION ARISING BY USAGE OF TRADE, COURSE OF DEALING OR COURSE OF PERFORMANCE.

ANY MATERIAL, INFORMATION, OR DATA DOWNLOADED OR OTHERWISE OBTAINED THROUGH THE USE OF THE SERVICE IS ACCESSED AT YOUR OWN DISCRETION AND RISK, AND YOU WILL BE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE TO YOUR COMPUTER SYSTEM AND/OR LOSS OF DATA THAT RESULT FROM THE DOWNLOAD OF SUCH MATERIAL. NO ADVICE, REPRESENTATION OR INFORMATION, WHETHER ORAL OR WRITTEN, OBTAINED BY YOU FROM PREZI, THE PREZI AFFILIATES, OR THROUGH THE SERVICE SHALL CREATE ANY WARRANTY NOT EXPRESSLY STATED IN THE AGREEMENT.
YOU EXPRESSLY UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT PREZI AND THE PREZI AFFILIATES WILL NOT BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES THAT MAY BE INCURRED BY YOU, HOWEVER CAUSED.

YOU SPECIFICALLY ACKNOWLEDGE THAT PREZI AND THE PREZI AFFILIATES SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR USER CONTENT OR THE DEFAMATORY, OFFENSIVE, OR ILLEGAL CONDUCT OF ANY THIRD PARTY AND THAT THE RISK OF HARM OR DAMAGE FROM THE FOREGOING RESTS ENTIRELY WITH YOU.
SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT PERMIT THE EXCLUSION OF CERTAIN WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OR THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY FOR CERTAIN DAMAGES.
