You may download, reproduce, prepare derivative works, distribute, perform and display the Content solely as combined with your own works of authorship for any lawful purpose (the combination of Content and your own works of authorship is referred to as a “Project”).  The term of your license to Content incorporated within a Project is perpetual and allows you to reproduce, distribute, perform and display Projects for any lawful purpose and in compliance with these Terms.

C. Violation and Disclosure of Information

Soundstripe reserves the right to take whatever lawful actions it may deem appropriate in response to actual or suspected violations of the foregoing, including, without limitation, the suspension or termination of your access and/or your account. Soundstripe may cooperate with legal authorities and/or third parties in the investigation of any suspected or alleged crime or civil wrong. Except as may be expressly limited by our privacy policy, located at https://www.soundstripe.com/privacy-policy and incorporated into these Terms by this reference (our “Privacy Policy”), Soundstripe reserves the right at all times to disclose any information as Soundstripe deems necessary to satisfy Applicable Laws, or to edit, refuse to post or to remove any information or materials, in whole or in part, in Soundstripe's sole discretion.

4. Access to Services and Your Account 

In order to access and use the Services and any Content, you will be required to provide certain personally identifiable information, the use of which is governed by our Privacy Policy. You agree that any information provided by you is accurate, current, and complete and will be kept accurate, current, and complete when using the Services. Soundstripe may suspend, revoke, or terminate your access to the Services for any reason or no reason at any time in Soundstripe’s sole discretion without prior notice to you. Any username, password, or any other piece of information chosen by you, or provided to you as part of our security procedures, must be treated as confidential, and you must not disclose it to any other person or entity if you have an individual plan or to anyone outside of the covered team if you have a team plan. If you are a part of a team plan, you agree to be the team’s administrator and providing and monitoring individual access by your team members, as well as revoking individual access covered under the team plan when any individual leaves the team that is covered by the plan.  A Soundstripe license under a team plan is a license to the team and not the individuals within the team, even if individuals within the team may have their own access credentials/passwords; individuals that leave a team covered under a team plan are no longer licensed to use the Content covered under the team plan. Soundstripe also reserves the right to limit the number of individuals/unique access credentials within a team plan and/or revoke access to individual team members or to the team.  You are responsible for all of your team members and personnel, including, without limitation, any third-party vendors or contractors, and their use of the Website, Content, and Services.

You must exercise caution when accessing your account from a public or shared computer so that others are not able to view or record your password or other personal information. You understand and agree that if you are provided an account, your account is personal to you, and you agree not to provide any other person with access to the Services and Content or portions thereof using your username, password, or other security information. You agree to notify us immediately of any unauthorized access to or use of your username or password or any other breach of security. You are responsible for any password misuse or any unauthorized access.

The security of your personal information is very important to Soundstripe. We use physical, electronic, and administrative measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure. The safety and security of your information also depends on you. You are responsible for complying with these Terms and obtaining your own access to the Services and use of the Content. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of personal information you transmit when using the Website, the Services, or any Content. Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk.

5. Fees for Plans; Renewals and Cancellation; Trial Period

Fees for your use of Service will be in accordance with your selected plan and stated at the time of your purchase or sign-up, as applicable, and as provided on our Website.  Fees for Services and certain plans may change at any time. Fees may be subject to tax, collected by us or a third party through which you transact, and except as set out in these Terms are non-refundable.  If your Service involves a recurring payment of a fee, unless you notify us before a charge that you want to cancel or do not want to automatically renew your Service, you understand it will automatically continue and you authorize us, or a third party through which you transact (without notice to you, unless required by applicable law) to collect the then-applicable fee and any taxes, using any credit card we have on record for you.  You can cancel at any time by emailing us at help@soundstripe.com or by logging into your account and navigating to the subscription page. If you cancel your plan or Service, you will not receive a refund of any fees already paid, unless otherwise stated in these Terms. 

If you are dissatisfied with your experience in using your Soundstripe account, and you have not accessed, used, or licensed any Content or Services, you may request that we cancel your Soundstripe account within the first 30 days of setting up your account, in which case we may, in our sole discretion, refund all or a portion of the fees (however, no refunds are guaranteed after such 30 days). 

From time to time, we may also offer Services that include a limited trial period where you can access and use Content in accordance with the plan you select but you are not responsible for paying any fees (“Trial Period”) until the expiration of the Trial Period.  Once your Trial Period expires, and if you have not cancelled your plan before the expiration of the Trial Period, we will automatically charge the recurring subscription fees that are applicable for such plan to the payment method you provided at the time you signed up for the plan.  Your eligibility for a Trial Period is subject to any additional terms of that Trial Period.  Your access to and use of any Content during the Trial Period is subject to these Terms and the features of your plan.

6. Termination; Modifications  

The Services, Content, plan, and any features, information, or content available therein, may be changed, cancelled, withdrawn, or terminated at any time in our sole discretion without notice to you. If we do so, we may give you a prorated refund based on the number of days remaining in your subscription plan unless we terminate your access to the Services for conduct that we determine, in our discretion, violates the Terms, violates any applicable law, involves fraud or misuse of the Content or Service, or is harmful to our interests or another user. Your right to use the Service and access to Content will immediately terminate. We shall not be liable to you or any third party for any claims for damages arising out of any termination or suspension or any other actions taken by us in connection therewith. 

Additionally, we reserve the right to accept, refuse or to restrict your use of any plan or Service, or change your plan or Service based on your qualification for a specific plan or Service, in our sole discretion. You may not transfer or assign your plan or Service benefits, or any Content you access. We may take actions we deem reasonably necessary to prevent fraud and abuse, including placing restrictions on the or number of users on your account or the amount of Content that can be accessed at any one time.

For Content that is film, video footage or any other audiovisual work (collectively “video Content”), any music, dialogue or other ambient audio contained therein is incidental only and not explicitly licensed under these Terms or your Plan.  Accordingly, Soundstripe and its content suppliers make no warranties with regard to, and you are solely responsible for obtaining any additional clearances relating to, any of the music, dialogue or other ambient audio that may be required.  In addition to these Terms, the license to the video Content is subject to any special terms that are contained or linked to in the item page for that particular video Content, if any, including restrictions on the number or type of Projects in which the video Content may be used.  You may not use “stills” derived from the video Content, except in connection with the in-context marketing, promotion, and advertising of your Project that incorporates the video Content.  You are responsible for obtaining rights to Depicted IP in video content (“Depicted IP” includes without limitation any audio, building, house, trademark, trade dress, logo, copyrighted design, art, architecture, or other works that may be depicted in the video Content).  These Terms do not include any grant of use or license, and Soundstripe has no rights that Soundstripe can license with respect to, Depicted IP (and except for locations for which the specific Content page states that we have a property release).  Soundstripe and its content suppliers make no warranties with regard to such Depicted IP.  Video Content includes low resolution versions of video Content made available to you for review and evaluation (“Preview”). Notwithstanding anything else in these Terms, (i) no right or license granted to you (other than in this section) or any warranty shall apply to any Preview, (ii) any Preview provided to you may only be used for your internal review and evaluation not exceeding 30 days (and unless you obtain a license under these Terms for the video Content that you Preview, you shall cause all copies of the Preview to be permanently deleted from any and all media), (iii) you will limit access to Previews to your representatives who are informed of these Terms.  You may not incorporate the video Content as an element of a digital template for sale or distribution and, except as licensed to you under these Terms, you may not (i) distribute, transmit or publicly display video Content as a template, a standalone file or to others for consumption, reproduction, or re-sale, or (ii) superficially modify any raw video Content and sell or license it to others for consumption, reproduction, or resale.  You may not incorporate any video Content into a logo, trademark, or service mark.  If you become aware of any unauthorized access, duplication of any video Content, you shall promptly notify Soundstripe via the Website.  If you learn that any video Content is subject to a threatened or actual third party claim of infringement, violation of another right, or any other claim, you will promptly notify Soundstripe via the Website. If Soundstripe learns of such a claim, and Soundstripe (in its sole but good faith discretion) determines that such claim raises an inappropriate legal risk, upon notice from Soundstripe, you agree to (i) remove the video Content from your computer systems and storage devices (electronic or physical), and (ii) cease any future use of the video Content (and based upon your compliance with these provisions we may choose to refund your Fees for the applicable video Content or without charge to you provide you with other video content that we determine with your consent, not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed, is comparable, subject to these Terms.

12. Content Availability and Indexing

Once we have selected specific Content available to you under your plan, we encourage you to download the Content promptly. As a convenience to you we may continue to make the specific Content available to you under your plan available for re-download, but we do not guarantee that such Content will be available for re-download and Soundstripe will not be liable to you if it becomes unavailable for further re-download.  We may add or remove Content from our plans and our Service at any time and make no guarantee as to the availability of specific Content in any plan or as to any minimum amount of Content in any plan. Some of our Content may be offered in limited territories, and we may use geofiltering technology to restrict access outside of those territories.  You understand and agree that temporary interruptions of service may occur as normal events that are out of our control. You also understand and agree that we have no control over the third-party networks or service(s) that we may use to provide you with Content. You agree that the Content and Services available on this Site are provided “AS IS” and that we assume no responsibility for the timeliness, deletion, mis-delivery, or failure to store any Content, communications, or personalization settings.  While we have made reasonable efforts to correctly categorize, keyword, caption, description, and title the Content, we do not warrant the accuracy of such information.

13. Third Party Platforms

Soundstripe provides tools that enable you to link your account with third party applications, websites, and other services to make the Services and Content available to you as a user. If you do so, you may also be subject to the terms and conditions and privacy policy of the provider of that third party service provider. For example, by linking your account on Soundstripe with an account on YouTube, you are agreeing to be bound by and subject to YouTube’s Terms of Service which are available here: https://www.youtube.com/t/terms. Soundstripe is not responsible or liable for behavior, content or features of any third party application, website, or service.

14. Monetization of Your Projects on Third Party Platforms

Subject to your compliance with these Terms, you may allow, and receive payment for, the display of third party ads in connection with uploading your projects on third party platforms, such as www.YouTube.com or any of YouTube’s applications, that provide monetization capabilities. In order to monetize projects on a third party platform, you must: (a) register your profile channel(s) on which you upload your projects onto the third party platform (each, a “Channel”) with Soundstripe in accordance with the instructions that Soundstripe provides from time to time; or (b) follow the instructions that Soundstripe provides from time to time to generate a single use code to register each item of Content in each project, but please be aware that the single use code is only applicable to (i) each specific item of Content you licensed; and (ii) one specific project. Once your Channel or specific project is properly registered with Soundstripe, it is considered “Listed”. Please note that you are only able to List your projects and Channels while you have an active subscription to Soundstripe. If you did not successfully List your projects and/or Channels prior to ending your subscription, you will not be able to do so until you purchase a new subscription. 

When your Channels and/or projects are not Listed or are not Listed correctly, Soundstripe is unable to tell a licensed use of Content from an unlicensed use of Content. In some cases, your Project or Channel may be properly Listed but Soundstripe’s process may still accidentally and incorrectly interpret your use of Content to be unlicensed. If Soundstripe monetizes one of your Projects licensed under these Terms or you otherwise receive a claim from the third party platform regarding your project’s use of unlicensed Content, you must ensure your Project and/or Channels are correctly Listed and: (a) notify Soundstripe at claims@soundstripe.com and provide (i) the email address you used to sign up for your account with Soundstripe, (ii) the title of the applicable Project as it appears on the third party platform, (iii) the URL to the uploaded project, (iv) a screenshot of the claim you received, and (v) any other information Soundstripe requests; (b) use the features available on the content ID tab of your account page on Soundstripe and submit the URL of the project on the third party platform; or (c) follow the claim process at https://www.soundstripe.com/copyright-claim-submission, in order for Soundstripe to discontinue monetizing your project and/or to release the claim against your uploaded project. 

Please be aware that Soundstripe may monetize certain projects under certain plans or that Soundstripe believes to be unlicensed.

Under no circumstances will Soundstripe have any responsibility to you or any third party for, or in connection, with your inability to monetize any projects or any claims against your projects that you upload onto any third party platforms or your Channel(s). Further, Soundstripe will not reimburse you or any third party in any manner if Soundstripe monetizes any of your projects on a third party platform or for your inability to monetize any of your projects regardless of the reason why.

15. Disclaimers

SOME STATES OR JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF CERTAIN WARRANTIES, SO SOME OF THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. PLEASE CONSULT THE LAWS IN YOUR JURISDICTION. 

16. Indemnification

To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, you agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Soundstripe, its subsidiaries, affiliates, and their respective directors, officers, employees, agents, service providers, contractors, licensors, suppliers, successors, and assigns from and against any claims, liabilities, damages, judgments, awards, losses, costs, expenses, or fees (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) arising out of or relating to your breach of these Terms or your use of the Services or any Content therein, including, but not limited to, actions under your account name, your violation of any law or regulation or any rights of another, your User Content, third-party sites, and any use of content other than as expressly authorized under these Terms. We reserve the right, at your expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter which you are required to indemnify against, and you agree to cooperate in our defense of such matter. This indemnification will survive any termination of these Terms.

17. Limitations

IN NO EVENT SHALL EITHER PARTY BE LIABLE TO THE OTHER PARTY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES, ANY COSTS OR EXPENSES IN CONNECTION WITH THE REPLACEMENT OF ANY PRODUCTS, GOODS, MATERIALS, OR SERVICES BOUGHT OR SOLD THROUGH THE WEBSITE OR THE SERVICES, OR ANY OTHER LOSSES, LOST PROFITS, LOSS OF DATA, OR OPPORTUNITY COSTS, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF THE OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.

SOME JURISDICTIONS PROHIBIT THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. PLEASE CONSULT THE LAWS IN YOUR JURISDICTION.

18. International Use, Sanctions, and Export Policy 

Although this Website may be accessible worldwide, Soundstripe makes no representation that materials on this Website are appropriate or available for use in locations outside the United States. Those who choose to access this Website from other locations do so on their own initiative and at their own risk. If you choose to access this Website from outside the United States, you are responsible for compliance with local laws in your jurisdiction, including but not limited to, the taxation of products purchased over the Internet. Any offer for any Content or Service, and/or information made in connection with this Website, is void where prohibited.  You may not use any Soundstripe Content or Services if you are the subject of U.S. sanctions or of sanctions consistent with U.S. law imposed by the governments of the country where you are using the Website, Content or Services. You must comply with all U.S. or other export and re-export restrictions that may apply to goods, software, technology, and services.

19. Infringement Notices

If you believe that any content on the Website or the Services violate or infringe upon your intellectual property rights pursuant to Title 17, United States Code, Section 512(c)(2), please notify us immediately of the alleged infringement at 604 Gallatin Ave., Suite 216, Nashville, TN 37206 Attn: Contract Administration Dept. or help@soundstripe.com with all specifics necessary for us to consider and respond to your complaint. You may be asked to provide additional information and follow additional procedures for us to act on your complaint. 

If you learn that any Content is subject to a threatened or actual third party claim of infringement, violation of another right, or any other claim for which Soundstripe, the Content contributors or any of their respective affiliates may be liable, you will promptly notify Soundstripe of any such claim. If Soundstripe, the Content contributors or any of their respective affiliates learns of such a claim from you, the third party or otherwise and Soundstripe, in its sole good faith discretion, determine that the claim raises an inappropriate legal risk, upon notice from us, you will: (i) remove the Content from your computer systems and storage devices (electronic or physical), and (ii) cease any future use of the Content at your own expense if possible.  If you do remove and cease use of the Content, we may choose to refund your fees for the applicable Content or without charge provide you with other content that we determine with your consent, not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed, is comparable, subject to the other terms and conditions of these Terms. Repeat infringers will be terminated and barred from using the Website.

20. Binding Arbitration

Any dispute or claim relating in any way to these Terms or your use of the Content, or Service will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to this agreement.  There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages) and must follow these Terms as a court would.  To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to the attention of Paul Rothstein, c/o Nelson Mullins Riley and Scarborough, 201 17th Street NW, Suite 1700, Atlanta, GA 30363 with a cc to Soundstripe, 604 Gallatin Ave, Suite 216, Nashville, TN 37206. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules, including the AAA's Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. The AAA's rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules. We will reimburse those fees for claims totaling less than $10,000 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. Likewise, Soundstripe will not seek attorneys' fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the Venue or at another mutually agreed location.  We each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, we each waive any right to a jury trial. We also both agree that you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.  If any term of this Section is to any extent illegal, otherwise invalid, or incapable of being enforced, such term shall be excluded to the extent of such invalidity or unenforceability; all other terms hereof shall remain in full force and effect; and, to the extent permitted and possible, the invalid or unenforceable term shall be deemed replaced by a term that is valid and enforceable and that comes closest to expressing the intention of such invalid or unenforceable term.

21. Jurisdiction and Governing Law

Each party waives any objection based on forum non conveniens and waives any objection to venue of any action instituted hereunder to the extent that an action is brought in the courts identified above. Each party agrees that a final judgment in any such action shall be conclusive and may be enforced in any other jurisdiction in any manner provided by law.

30. Waiver

These remedies are in addition to any other remedies we may have at law or in equity.
