These Terms form a legally binding agreement between you, an individual or Company (“you”) and Soundstripe, Inc. (“Soundstripe”, “we” or “us”) governing your use of the Soundstripe.com website at https://www.soundstripe.com (or as updated by Soundstripe from time to time) and/or mobile applications (the “Website”), your use of Soundstripe content available via the Website (“Content”) and, including, without limitation (a) musical compositions, sound recordings, videos, and other materials made available through the Soundstripe library (collectively, the “Soundstripe Library”); and (b) text, graphics, photos, videos, computer code, and other materials made available on the Website that are not part of the Soundstripe Library collectively; (c) the services operated by Soundstripe, including without limitation, any apps, plugins, executables, or other software provided to you by Soundstripe (the “Service(s)”). Any reference to Company in these Terms only applies to a Company user and not to an individual user.
2. Modifications to these Terms
These Terms may be changed, modified, amended, supplemented, or otherwise updated from time to time by Soundstripe without advance notice to you. By continuing to access the Website, Soundstripe Library, and/or use the Services you agree to be bound by any such updated Terms. Soundstripe, in its sole discretion, has the option, but not the obligation, to provide notice of any update to these Terms by means of a conspicuous alert, banner, or notification displayed on the Website, Soundstripe Library, or within the Services or by sending an email to the email address provided to Soundstripe.
3. Your License To Use the Soundstripe Library Content
Subject to your compliance with these Terms, Soundstripe hereby grants you a limited, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, non-assignable, revocable license to access and use the materials in the Soundstripe Library, including distribution of your Project (as define below) via any social media app, website, channel, or podcast in accordance with these Terms. You may download, reproduce, prepare derivative works, distribute, perform and display the materials in the Soundstripe Library solely as combined with your own works of authorship or Company’s works of authorship, as applicable, for any lawful purpose (the combination of Content and your own works of authorship or Company’s works of authorship, as applicable, is referred to as a “Project”). If you have a Pro or Business Plan, you may combine Soundstripe Library content with works of authorship created by others, in which case such resulting projects shall each be a “Project” hereunder. Provided that your subscription plan includes access to and uses of one or more content types, you may download up to 50 pieces of song content, 50 pieces of video content, and/or 100 pieces of sound effect content per day in accordance with your specific subscription plan. The term of your license to the materials in the Soundstripe Library 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.
Certain subscription plans may include additional license limitations, such as limiting the use of an offering to one or more particular media. Specifically, for Creator and Business Plans, Soundstripe Library content may not be used for (i) commercial use, including but not limited to advertising, paid posts, boosted posts, and/or advertising on any website, radio, TV, or social media channel; or (ii) broadcast distribution, including linear or digital TV or radio, or any public performance. However, these uses are permitted under a Pro Plan.
In the event you arrange a public performance of any work that includes Content in connection with any medium that retains valid performance licenses from the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (“ASCAP”), Broadcast Music, Inc. (“BMI"), or other applicable performing rights society, you shall deliver to us a music cue sheet with regard to such work within thirty (30) days of the initial commercial broadcast of such work. Notwithstanding anything else herein, if a work incorporating Soundstripe Library content, or part thereof, is distributed through a medium not owned by you, then you acknowledge and agree that such medium must have blanket performance licensing in place with such performance rights organizations, or a separate performance fee must be negotiated in good faith.
In connection with your use of the Soundstripe Library, you agree that you will not:
4. 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. If you have a Creator Plan, you are limited to one (1) Channel. If you have a Pro or Business Plan, you are limited to five (5) Channels. 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 Soundstripe Library content in each Project, but please be aware that the single use code is only applicable to (i) each specific item of Soundstripe Library 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 Soundstripe Library 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 Soundstripe Library 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 email@example.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.
5. License Terms for Video
For film, video footage or any other audiovisual work (collectively “Video”), 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 is subject to any special terms that are contained or linked to in the item page for that particular Video, if any, including restrictions on the number or type of Projects in which the Video may be used. You may not use “stills” derived from the Video, except in connection with the in-context marketing, promotion, and advertising of your Project that incorporates the Video. You are responsible for obtaining rights to Depicted IP in Video (“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). 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 Video 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 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 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 as an element of a digital template for sale or distribution and, except as licensed to you under these Terms, you may not (i) dis-tribute, transmit or publicly display Video as a template, a standalone file or to others for consumption, reproduction, or re-sale, or (ii) superficially modify any raw Video and sell or license it to others for consumption, reproduction, or resale. You may not incorporate any Video into a logo, trademark, or service mark. If you become aware of any unauthorized ac-cess, duplication of any Video, you shall promptly notify Soundstripe via the Website. If you learn that any Video 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 from your computer systems and storage devices (electronic or physical), and (ii) cease any future use of the Video (and based upon your compliance with these provisions we may choose to refund your Fees for the applicable Video or without charge to you provide you with other Video content that we determine with your consent, not to be un-reasonably withheld or delayed, is comparable, subject to these Terms.
6. Your Use of the Website
Subject to your compliance with these Terms, Soundstripe hereby grants you a limited, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, non-assignable, revocable license to access and use the Website, the Services and any content contained therein for personal and non-commercial use. This license does not apply to your exploitation of the Soundstripe Library. That license is set forth in paragraph 3. If you have a Business Plan, Soundstripe grants you the right to create multiple “seats” or user accounts within your Company in connection with your master account, in which case, you shall be responsible for all those using the Soundstripe Library, Website, Services and/or Content pursuant to these Terms and/or through the use of logon(s) and password(s) issued by you and each such user shall be subject to these Terms. Any unauthorized use or use otherwise not in compliance with these Terms will result in immediate termination of the license rights granted herein.
The license granted herein does not include the right to download (other than through page caching), copy, reproduce, extract data from (including through data mining, web crawling, or other techniques), or modify; sell, re-sell, or commercially re-use (including via any time sharing, service bureau, or similar method); or create any derivative works of the Website, Services, Soundstripe Library, or any content available therein. You agree not to frame or utilize framing techniques to enclose any trademark, logo, or other proprietary information of Soundstripe (or any third-party owners of content) without the express written permission of the respective owner of such information.
All rights not expressly granted by these Terms are reserved by Soundstripe. There are no implied rights.
In connection with your use of the Website, Soundstripe Library, or the Services, you agree that you will not:
7. Violation and Disclosure of Information
8. Access to Services and Your Account
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, Soundstripe Library, or any Content. Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk.
9. 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. By selecting your particular plan, you represent and warrant that it is the appropriate plan for your intended and/or actual use. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 do not timely pay your Fees, a late charge may be applied (computed daily from the date of the invoice at the lesser of one and one-half percent per month or the highest rate permitted by law) and you agree Soundstripe may withhold access to Content, the Soundstripe Library, and/or Services until you pay. You agree that all Fees are net amounts for the Services, Soundstripe Library, and/or Content and that payment of all taxes are ultimately your responsibility.
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.
10. Termination; Modifications
The Services, Content, Soundstripe Library, 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.

SOUNDSTRIPE DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE SOUNDSTRIPE LIBRARY, WEBSITE, CONTENT OR SERVICES, INFORMATION, CONTENT, MATERIALS, PRODUCTS (INCLUDING APPS) OR OTHER SERVICES INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH THE Soundstripe Library, SOUNDSTRIPE WEBSITE, CONTENT OR SERVICES, SOUNDSTRIPE'S SERVERS OR ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATIONS SENT FROM SOUNDSTRIPE ARE FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS.
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.
If you have a Business or Enterprise Plan, Soundstripe represents, and warrants to you that (i) to the best of Soundstripe’s knowledge, there are no actions, suits, proceedings, agreements, or other impediments, actual or threatened, which would prevent or impair it from granting the rights granted hereunder; (ii) the Soundstripe Library shall not infringe upon or violate the rights, copyrights or any other common law of statutory rights of any person or entity; (iv) the Content shall not knowingly contain any Malicious Code which is defined as (a) any undisclosed program routine, device or other feature or hidden file, including, without limitation, a time bomb, virus, software lock, trojan horse, drop-dead device, worm, malicious logic or trap door, that is designed to delete, disable, deactivate, interfere with or otherwise harm the Content or any hardware, software, data or other programs of Company, or (b) any transmitting or activating computer program, any communication feature or tool which enables Soundstripe to collect information regarding Company’s activities or data, or any hardware-limiting, software-limiting, or services-limiting function (including, but not limited to, any key, node lock, time-out or other similar functions), whether implemented by electronic or other means, or (c) any viruses or malware.
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, Soundstripe Library, 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.

This indemnification will survive any termination of these Terms. If you have a Business or Enterprise Plan, Soundstripe agrees to defend, indemnify and hold harmless you and your affiliates, officers, directors, and employees, from and against any and all claims, damages, losses, liabilities, costs or debt, and expenses (including but not limited to reasonable outside attorney’s fees) arising from: (i) Soundstripe’s violation of these Terms; and (ii) the violation of any third-party rights, including, without limitation, copyright, in or to the Soundstripe Library, Services, and/or Content.

You will indemnify Soundstripe from all damages, costs, settlements, attorneys’ fees and expenses related to any claim of infringement or misappropriation excluded from Soundstripe’s indemnity obligation by the preceding sentence.
EXCEPT WITH RESPECT TO AMOUNTS PAID TO THIRD PARTIES PURSUANT TO AN INDEMNIFICATION OBLIGATION HEREUNDER OR IN A SEPARATE AGREEMENT BETWEEN US AND YOU (“INDEMNITY EXCEPTION”), 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, SOUNDSTRIPE LIBRARY, 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.

SUBJECT TO THE INDEMNITY EXCEPTION, IN NO EVENT SHALL EITHER PARTY BE LIABLE TO THE OTHER PARTY FOR ANY AMOUNTS IN EXCESS OF ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS $100. THIS LIMITATION OF LIABILITY IS CUMULATIVE AND NOT PER INCIDENT (I.E., THE EXISTENCE OF MORE THAN ONE (1) CLAIM WILL NOT ENLARGE THIS LIMIT).

19. 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.
20. Infringement Notices
If you believe that any content on or in the Soundstripe Library, Website, Content 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 [1103 Holly Street, Nashville, TN 37206 Attn: Contract Administration Dept.] or [email@example.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 the Soundstripe Library, Website, Content or the Services 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.
21. Binding Arbitration
Any dispute or claim relating in any way to these Terms or your use of the Soundstripe Library, Website, 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 17 Street NW, Suite 1700, Atlanta, GA 30363, with a cc to Soundstripe, 1103 Holly Street, 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.
