What is the Rumble Studio Service?
Rumble Studio is an online public communication service that enables its users (Hosts) to create and produce media content (in particular podcasts) by inviting participants (Guests) to share content or record verbal contributions via the online interface made available by Rumble Studio in the form of a Software as a Service (SaaS). The podcasts are produced by the Hosts on their own account or on behalf of their own clients (Agency Hosts). Podcasts or other media content (Content) created through Rumble Studio are made available to the public by Hosts through third-party broadcast services or directly from the Rumble Studio service.

Technical arrangements for the provision of the service
13.1 Content Hosting
Contents, and more generally all items uploaded by a Host when using the Service (regardless of whether these items are used for the purposes of final Content or not) shall be hosted on Rumble Studio’s or its subcontractors’ servers (the “Stored Content”).
The storage capacity allocated to Hosts on Rumble Studio’s or its subcontractors’ servers shall depend on the service offer (free or against payment) subscribed to by the Host under Clause 3.2 of the GTOU. In the event of subscription to a lower level offer against payment (or non-renewal of an offer against payment), the storage capacity shall be automatically reduced by Rumble Studio. A reduction in storage capacity will result in all or part of the Stored Contents being temporarily or permanently inaccessible. At the end of a period of thirty (30) days from the date of the change that led to the reduction in storage capacity, Rumble Studio reserves the right to permanently and irreversibly delete all or part of the Contents Stored on Rumble Studio’s or its subcontractors’ servers, following one single notice sent by email to the address registered in the Host’s User account. Hosts acknowledge that they have been informed that if they fail to download all of the Stored Contents within a period of thirty (30) days, Rumble Studio cannot guarantee the availability of the Stored Contents.
Contents created may also be transferred to a Third-Party Service provider server with a view to its distribution to the public (see Clause 12.3.2 above).
Where Stored Contents include personal data within the meanings of applicable regulations, the third-party hosts shall act as “sub-processor” for Rumble Studio within the meanings of the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR). Personal data shall be processed in accordance with the principles set out in Clause 14 and Appendix A.
13.2 Service Security
13.2.1 Rumble Studio implements technical and organisational measures in accordance with the state of the art in order to secure its information system and access to the Service as part of a general obligation of means [“obligation générale de moyens”].
13.2.2 Users hereby acknowledge that, given the state of the art and current techniques, and in particular the hazards associated with the use of open communication networks such as the Internet, Rumble Studio cannot guarantee that the Rumble Studio Service will not be subject to security incidents (such as an exploitation of a vulnerability and/or an attack by means of malware, and in particular unknown or unlisted vulnerabilities and/or malware) or that such security incidents will never affect the Stored Content. Users hereby declare that they accept these risks, which may affect the quality of the Service provided by Rumble Studio within the meanings of Article 1133 paragraph 3 of the French Civil Code.
13.3 Maintenance and Support
13.3.1 Rumble Studio shall be exclusively responsible for the Service’s development and corrective maintenance. All requests for assistance should be addressed to Rumble Studio at email@example.com.

Personal data processing
Personal data included in the Stored Content shall be processed by the Host as data controller. Hosts shall be responsible for compliance with obligations incumbent in this regard under the French Data Protection Act No. 78-17 of 06 January 1978 as amended (“LIL”) and EU Regulation 2016/679 of 27 April 2016 (General Data Protection Regulation - “GDPR”).
For the purposes of providing the Service, Rumble Studio shall act as a data processor to Hosts. Rumble Studio shall act in accordance with and within the limits of the instructions documented in Appendix A.
The terms “data” or “personal data” shall have the same meaning as the term “personal data” in the GDPR. The terms “processing”, “data controller”, “data processor” or “recipient” are used in the GTOU and in Appendix A in accordance with the meaning given to them in Article 4 of the GDPR.
Part III - Content Management
15.1 This third part of the Rumble Studio GTOU is intended to serve as a guide for any User and/or any third party (hereinafter a “Notifier”) wishing to make a request for the removal of Content produced by a Host using the tools provided by Rumble Studio and made available to the public at the initiative of a Host via a Third-Party Service or directly via Rumble Studio.
15.2 As a Notifier, you are hereby informed that Rumble Studio cannot be held liable for Contents produced, created and published by a Host unless Rumble Studio is at fault in the implementation of its removal obligation.15.3 Where the disputed Content is distributed to the public via a Third-Party Service, the Notifier is invited, before directing a request to Rumble Studio, to make the removal request directly (i) to the Third-Party Service concerned and/or (ii) to the Host where the latter is identified or identifiable.

16.1.1 Rumble Studio shall respond positively and promptly to any request for removal or suspension made by an administrative authority or by a judicial authority or to a notice that includes a decision by an administrative or judicial authority, regardless of whether the latter have ruled on the unlawfulness of a Content on their own initiative or at the request of a third party.

Rumble Studio shall entertain no responsibility in this regard.
16.3 Requests made in a capacity other than that of a Guest
16.3.1 Any request for removal made by a Notifier (other than a Guest) who has an interest in taking action must comply with a precise procedure to enable Rumble Studio to assess any obvious unlawful nature of the Content notified and to proceed, without prior intervention by the judicial authorities or an administrative authority, with the prompt removal of that Content.
16.3.2 The Notifier shall understand and accept that in the event of non-compliance with the formalities described below, Rumble Studio shall not be able to remove the disputed Content.
16.3.3 In this respect, it is pointed out hereby to the Notifier that certain Contents, insofar as they necessarily imply compliance with the adversarial principle, cannot be considered as manifestly unlawful by nature. This applies more specifically to Contents whose removal is requested on the basis of defamation, which cannot be removed without the Notifier producing a decision by the judicial authorities confirming the unlawful nature of this Content.
16.3.4 In any case, the notice must include the following items:
- The name and e-mail address of the Notifier;
- Proof of an attempt to contact the Third-Party Service concerned, the request for removal previously sent to it or any evidence that the Third-Party Service cannot be contacted.
- The URL from which the Content is distributed to the public, including if it is an online public distribution service provided by Rumble Studio.
- A detailed and legal explanation of why the Notifier considers the offending Content to be unlawful or to contain unlawful material. The Notifier shall thus mention the legal source on which its notice is based and explain how, in its opinion, the publication of the Content makes it eligible for removal.
- A sworn statement that the notice is given in good faith and that the information provided is accurate and complete.
- In general, all items to enable Rumble Studio to assess the manifest illegality of Content without any legal analysis or additional information being required to assess the illegality of the Content or of certain components thereof.
16.3.5 In the event of failure to comply with the formalities set out above, the Notifier shall understand that Rumble Studio will not be able to proceed with prompt removal of the Content and that it cannot be held liable for failure to comply with its obligations.
