- PURCHASES AND PAYMENTS
You may purchase artist campaigns or receive payment as a curator through the Artist Promotion Service. You do so subject to the terms and policies contained in these Terms.
Orders Placed on the Company Sites. By placing an order, you represent that the services ordered will be used only in a lawful manner. For example, artist campaigns are purchased for private use.
Company reserves the right, with or without prior notice: to discontinue any campaign; to impose conditions on the honoring of, any coupon, coupon code, promotional code or other similar promotions; to bar any user from making any or all transaction(s); and/or to refuse to provide any user with any product or service.
Campaign Payments. PAYMENT FOR A CAMPAIGN DOES NOT GUARANTEE THAT YOUR SONG(S) WILL BE ADDED TO A PLAYLIST. When you pay for a campaign, you are paying for your song(s) to be reviewed; you are not paying for your song(s) to be placed on a playlist. That decision is in the sole discretion of the curators who listen to and review your music. Company does not guarantee that any song will be placed on a playlist.
You agree to pay all charges that may be incurred by you or on your behalf through the Artist Promotion Service or our authorized payment vendor, at the price(s) in effect when such charges are incurred, including without limitation all processing charges. In addition, you remain responsible for any taxes that may be applicable to your transactions.
Curator Payments. CURATORS ARE PAID FOR LISTENING TO AND REVIEWING SONGS, NOT PLACING THEM ON PLAYLISTS. Curators may be paid to listen to and reviewing submissions. If a curator who has listened to and reviewed a song chooses to add that song to a playlist, he or she does so at his or her sole discretion.
Once curators are eligible to receive funds, funds earned by curators are available to be paid once a curator’s account balance reaches a minimum required balance. We may (a) withhold and offset any payments or refunds owed to you against any fees you owe us under these Terms or otherwise, or (b) require you to refund to us any overpayments we have made to you. If you dispute any payment made or withheld relating to the Service, you must notify us in writing within 30 days of any such payment. Failure to give written notice within 30 days waives any such claim.
To ensure proper and timely payments, you are responsible for providing any maintaining accurate contact and payment information in your account. We reserve the right to withhold payments if we suspect a breach of these Terms, misuse of the Service, illegal conduct, or some other violation of the law or Company policy (a “Violation”). If we determine a violation has occurred, all or part of your balance may be forfeit.
Refunds. We do not offer refunds for paid campaigns under any circumstances, including if you are an artist and have submitted a song that fails to be reviewed or fails to be placed on a playlist by a curator. We only offer refunds if the customer can not received the total follower reach placements. With “followers reach” we mean that your playlists together will have that amount of followers. For example, if the campaign says to reach 20,000 followers , it means that you can get into 2 playlists of 10,000 followers that add up to 20,000 followers if the playlist owners voluntary at your songs to their playlists
Promotions. From time to time, we may offer sweepstakes, contests, and other promotional events in which you may choose to participate (“Promotions”). By participating in any such Promotion, you become subject to those rules, which may vary from these Terms. You should carefully review the rules, if any, of each Promotion in which you participate through the Artist Promotion Service. These Terms will remain in full force and effect as long as you remain a user of the Artist Promotion Service. To the extent there is a conflict between these Terms and the rules of the Promotion in which you choose to participate, the rules shall govern.
