If you think someone else has obtained your account details, please let us know immediately via [email protected] and we will close your account as quickly as possible. Please note that you will be responsible to Noiiz and to others for all activity that occurs under your registration account.
3. The Noiiz Service.
Noiiz is an online subscription service that allows you to browse and download pre-recorded sounds, sound effects, loops and samples (“Sound Products”), and MIDI files and software files (“Software Products”, and together the Sound Products and Software Products are the “Products”), and from time to time also to individually purchase downloadable Products (collectively, the “Service”). The Service also allows you to upload your own User Content (as defined below) for the purposes and in accordance with the rules listed on the Site and/or the App.
The Site and the Content are intended only for the purposes specified or implied therein, and your use of the Site, App and Content is entirely at your own risk. Please note, whilst we endeavour to provide accurate and up-to-date information, the Content may not be wholly accurate or up-to-date, complete or free of defects, and is subject to change, often at very short notice. All Content is provided without any representations or warranties of any kind (implied or express) to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law. Noiiz, unless otherwise stated herein, owns or controls all relevant intellectual property rights in the Site, the App and the Content. You may not publish, distribute, extract, re-utilise, or reproduce any part of the Site, the App or the Content in any form (including storing it in any medium) other than as expressly allowed herein or as set out in the Site and the Content (or under UK or local law). Save as expressly set out in this Agreement, the Site, the App and the Content are for your personal use only, and are not for re-distribution, transfer, assignment or sublicense. Noiiz will not be responsible if a Product does not fit your particular purpose.
5. User Content.
By uploading any sounds, samples, recordings, tracks, materials or other content (“User Content”), you retain ownership and all rights in your User Content but you grant to us permission to host your User Content and transmit it back to you on your request for purposes of providing the Noiiz Services.
6. Liability for User Content.
Please do not upload any User Content to the Service unless you have the right to do so. You warrant and represent that you have (and will continue to have during your use of the Service) all necessary licences, rights, consents, and permissions required to enable Noiiz to receive, store and transmit such content for the purposes of the Site and the App, and that you personally created or otherwise own or control the necessary rights in such User Content. Any User Content which constitutes or contains content that infringes the copyright of a third party may be removed following any reasonable request by a relevant rightsholder. As part of our copyright policy, we will terminate access to the Service for any User if, in our reasonable opinion, that User is determined to be a repeat infringer (or otherwise has been the subject of more than one valid copyright notice or Take Down request which has not been successfully rebutted).
A User who opens an account, accepts this Agreement and pays the subscription fee shall be a Subscriber. As a Subscriber (and subject to the Noiiz Fair Use policy), the User may download Products under the Licence described below. Subscriptions will be renewed at the end of the agreed period, unless you cancel your Subscription following the procedure set out on the Site or the App by no later than five (5) days before the end of the relevant period. Noiiz reserves the right to cancel, delete or suspend any Subscription in its own discretion without notice if we have reason to believe that you may have breached this Agreement. For the avoidance of doubt, when you cancel a Subscription you do not lose the licence to use the Sound Products already downloaded, but all rights to use Software Products (such as Plug Ins) will terminate with your Subscription.
8. Licence for Download and Use of Products.
By subscribing to the Service (and subject to your compliance with this Agreement), you are granted a non-exclusive, non-transferrable license to use the Products you download from Noiiz solely for use for or within new recordings or derivative works created by you PROVIDED ALWAYS that you use the Sound Product(s) only within your own newly-created sound recording(s) in a manner that renders the Sound Product substantially dissimilar to the original sound of the Sound Product in each case. For the avoidance of doubt, you are granted a personal non-transferable licence to use the Software Products (such as Plug Ins) solely for your own personal use. Products are for use only as described hereunder and must not be shared with or given or transferred to any third party or uploaded to any file sharing site or offered for resale or public transmission unless mixed into your own original music productions. Products may not be used in or in relation to any competitive products that are sold or relicensed to multiple third parties. The number of individual sounds within a Sound Product and the size of a downloaded file may be based upon the highest-quality format version of the relevant Product and other formats downloaded may vary in file size and number or volume of sounds contained (and in such cases, some versions may be provided with a different format). Except as expressly permitted herein, to the fullest extent of applicable law you may not copy, modify, distribute, sell or lease any Product, and you may not reverse engineer or attempt to extract the source code of any Software Product.
Prices are as set out on the relevant pages of the Site and App from time to time. Prices (and availability of specific Products) are subject to change by posting new prices or notification of availability at any time. All prices are inclusive of VAT (or sales tax) unless otherwise stated. Please note that use of the Site and App may be subject to data charges imposed by your internet or mobile phone provider and you will be responsible for payment of any such charges.
Payments may be by credit or debit card using Visa, MasterCard, Maestro or American Express (or other payment methods offered from time to time as detailed on the Service). All transactions are charged immediately. All credit/debit cardholders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. If your card issuer refuses to authorise payment, your order will be cancelled and we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery. We are not responsible for your card issuer or bank charging you as a result of us processing of your credit/debit card payment in accordance with your order nor are we not obliged to inform you of any reason for refusal. By using your credit or debit card, you confirm that the card belongs to your and that there are sufficient funds or credit available to cover the charges. By placing any order hereunder, you warrant and represent that you are legally capable of entering into binding contracts and that you have agreed to be bound by this Agreement. Please note that International payments and certain payment methods may give rise to higher payment processing costs
Due to the nature of downloadable products and online services, no refunds are normally available. Any refund request will be considered in our sole discretion and our decision will be final. Nothing herein affects your statutory rights.
All rights not expressly granted to User are reserved. The Products are licensed, not sold, to you to be used for (or, in the case of Sound Products, reproduced within) your original musical compositions and productions only. All copying, lending, duplicating, re-selling or trading of any Product or other Content is strictly prohibited, save as used for or incorporated into your original created works as detailed below. Only the original purchaser of a Sound Product has the right to embody and reproduce that Sound Product within their music compositions. This license is granted for a single user only (and is given on a worldwide basis). For the avoidance of doubt, no ownership of copyright is transferred by Noiiz to Users hereunder. You agree and acknowledge that Noiiz has a proprietary interest in all sound recordings on or within the Site and the App, and that any use by you that frustrates the purpose of this Agreement or circumvents the revenue model of Noiiz (including without limitation selling, renting, or otherwise using or distributing un-integrated Content) would likely cause irreparable loss to Noiiz in a way that could not be adequately compensated by damages.
