Our Relationship with Third Party Services We may offer you interfaces that allow you to connect with third party services such as Vimeo (“Third Party Services”) through our Site.

In order to provide this authorization, you will not provide us with your user name or password to these Third Party Services, but you will need to log-in directly through our Site. Once authorized by you, the Third Party Services will provide us a token that enables it to recognize us when we ask, on your behalf, for access to your account information or to receive content. You will be able to revoke our access to any or all of these Third Party Services at any time by amending the appropriate settings from within your account settings on the applicable site, though such revocation may limit the Third Party Services we are able to provide you and the fields available for your creations.
