The Service is an online music catalogue service, by which
Snapmuse makes available digital music files (collectively as
well as any part thereof "Content") to be used in audiovisual
productions and/or other productions, in accordance with these
Terms and Conditions and the applicable music license
You access the Service from Snapmuse's online interface. The Service is available for entities and persons that have registered and created user accounts. In order to use the Service and access the Content you will have to be no younger than 16 years old. You will also have to have the power to enter into a binding contract (i.e. be of mental capacity to enter into binding agreements, not personally bankrupt etc.) and not be barred from doing so under any applicable law. If you are under 16 years old, or unable to solely enter into a binding agreement with Snapmuse, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
The assortment of Content may be amended at all times by Snapmuse, with or without any notice to you. You accept that the Content that is available might not be available at a later stage.
Content types and descriptions, such as genres, categories etc. are provided for your convenience only and Snapmuse does not guarantee their accuracy.
You agree not to use or launch any automated system (including, without limitation, any robot, spider or offline reader) that accesses the Service in a manner that sends more requests to Snapmuse or its servers in a given period of time than a human can reasonably produce in the same period by using a publicly available, standard (i.e. not modified) web browser.
You agree to only download Content in accordance with the restrictions applicable to your account.
In order to use the Service you must create a personal account
and register as user by following the instructions that are
further specified in the user registration form. Your account
will contain basic account information including username and
password. The password you choose must be a unique and distinct
password. You are responsible for your username and password and
should never give out your password to anyone else. You may not
select or use an identity of another person with the intent to
impersonate that person. You must use a valid email address and
Snapmuse reserves the right to test and to verify this at any
time. You are not allowed to have more than one account. It is
prohibited to agree with third parties upon the transfer, the
utilisation or the provision of accounts, resources or access
Snapmuse has the right to disable any personal account/username or password, whether chosen by you or allocated by Snapmuse, at any time, if in Snapmuse’s reasonable opinion you have failed to comply with any of the provisions of these Terms and Conditions.
You must notify Snapmuse immediately of any breach of security or unauthorised use of your Snapmuse account that you become aware of.
You agree that you will be solely responsible (to Snapmuse, and to others) for all activity that occurs under your Snapmuse account.
Some of our different Services requires payment. If you have
received a discount code or free offer/a free trial period
provided by Snapmuse or from a third party acting on behalf of
Snapmuse for access to a paid Service, separate additional terms
and conditions for such offer may also apply to such access to
the Service and you must agree to comply with such terms in
order to be able to use the Service.
If you have been offered a free trial, Snapmuse reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to determine your eligibility for a trial, and if you’re determined not to be eligible, modify the trial at any time with prior written notice. For some trials we require you to provide payment details to start the trial. At the end of such trial, and if you have not decided to terminate the agreement, Snapmuse will automatically start to charge for such provided Service.
You may not use, transfer, display, perform or otherwise make
the Content available except as expressly permitted under these
Terms and Conditions and under the applicable music license
All content available through the Service and on the website, including designs, text, graphics, pictures, videos, information, applications, software, music, sound and other files, are the proprietary property of Snapmuse.
Except for the rights expressly granted to you in the applicable music license agreement and in these Terms and Conditions, no right to the Service or the Content is assigned to you, and all right, title and interest in the Service and the Content are reserved and retained by Snapmuse. Snapmuse do not under any circumstances transfer any right, title or interest in the Content to you, and you do not acquire any ownership rights to the Service or the Content.
Please note that you may not use the Content in connection with other material that is offensive, defamatory, obscene, immoral, discriminating, illegal or that otherwise violates any rights of anyone associated with the Content and/or any third party. You shall comply with any applicable laws, regulations regarding use and distribution of the Content.
Please also note that you are not allowed to upload or otherwise exploit the Content provided in the Service as stand-alone files (for example, uploading the track to any kind of distribution platform or otherwise distributing a track as a full-length (or shortened) file, on its own or with a just background picture and/or just the name of the artist/track).
In the event of a breach by you of any provisions of this Clause 5, your right to use the website and the Service will cease immediately and you must, at our option, return or destroy any copies of the materials you have made.
You agree that Snapmuse has the right to allow the Service to
make use of the storage hardware, processor and bandwidth of
your Internet connection, computer, game console, workstation or
similar media device; however, only as reasonably necessary to
provide the Service.
If you are connected to the Internet in a foreign country the Service may still make use of the storage hardware, processor and bandwidth on your Internet connection, computer, game console, workstation or similar media device. As a consequence extra charges from your Internet Service Provider ("ISP") may be brought on you. Check with your ISP for further details. By using the Service you agree to take responsibility for these extra charges towards your ISP and you agree to indemnify Snapmuse for any third party claims due to the extra charges from your ISP referable to you.
The Service and website are integrated with third party applications, websites and other services to make the Service and Content available to you as a user. These third-party applications may have their own terms and conditions of use etc., and your use of these third-party applications will therefore be subject to the applicable terms and conditions for such third party provider. Snapmuse is not responsible or liable for behaviour, content or features of any third-party application.
You may separately have accepted to be exposed to commercial messages, newsletters and advertisements sent by Snapmuse when using the Service. If you do not want to be notified about these offers or news you may always opt-out from such information by following the instructions in each notification which you receive.
You will find answers to the most frequently asked questions about the Service on the website www.snapmuse.com. You are always welcome to contact Snapmuse on email@example.com.
