VI. Your Content

Any and all audio, video, text, photos, pictures, graphics, comments, and other content, data or information that you upload, store, transmit, submit, exchange or make available to or via the Service (“Your Content”) is generated, owned and controlled solely by you, and not by SetBreak. SetBreak does not claim any ownership rights in Your Content, and you hereby expressly acknowledge and agree that Your Content remains your sole responsibility. Notwithstanding the foregoing, by uploading and/or submitting Your Content to the Service, and in consideration of the opportunity to have Your Content reach other Listeners and the promotional value received therefrom, you hereby grant to SetBreak (and SetBreak’s assignees, designees, licensees, and sub-licensees) a non-exclusive, perpetual, royalty-free license of all rights available to owners of copyright, including but not limited to the right to reproduce, distribute, publicly display, and publicly perform Your Content in any formats, manner, and/or media now known or hereafter devised, commercially or promotionally, with or without credit to you; and to create and exploit derivative works of Your Content and do any of the foregoing with such derivative works. The foregoing license shall survive the termination of your SetBreak account with respect to any of Your Content that you submit or upload to the Service prior to such termination.

Without prejudice to the conditions set forth in Paragraph V you must not upload, store, host, distribute, send, transmit, display, perform, make available or otherwise communicate to the public any Content to which you do not hold the necessary rights. In particular, any unauthorized use of copyright protected material within Your Content (including by way of reproduction, distribution, modification, adaptation, public display, public performance, preparation of derivative works, making available or otherwise communicating to the public via the Service) without full ownership and/or control, or written and valid permission to do so, may constitute an infringement of third party rights and is strictly prohibited. Any such infringements will result in termination of your access to the Service as described in the Repeat Infringers section below, and may also result in civil litigation or criminal prosecution by or on behalf of the relevant rights holder.

We may, from time to time, invite or provide you with means to provide feedback regarding the Service, and in such circumstances, any feedback you provide will be deemed non-confidential and SetBreak shall have the right, but not the obligation, to use such feedback on an unrestricted basis.

VII. Contests/Promotions

Any contests, games and/or promotional offers (collectively referred to as “Promotions”) offered by SetBreak are governed by specific rules and/or terms and conditions. By entering or participating in Promotions you will be subject to those rules and/or terms and conditions. You are required to read the individual terms/conditions for each individual Promotion you enter. If there is any conflict between the terms/conditions of a Promotion and these Terms, the terms of the Promotion will govern, but only to the extent that there is a confliction. Any Promotions made available or advertised on third party sites accessible from SetBreak (such as those of social media like Facebook and Twitter), you will also be subject to the rules and/or terms and conditions applicable to your participation in such feature(s) on those third party sites. To no extent should it be construed that any social media site endorses the Promotion unless explicitly indicated.

Content shall not be reproduced or used without express written permission from SetBreak or its licensors, as applicable.

X. Blocking and Removal of Content

Notwithstanding the fact that SetBreak has no legal obligation to monitor the Content on the Service, SetBreak reserves the right to block, remove or delete any Content at any time at its sole discretion, and to limit or restrict access to any Content, for any reason and without liability, including without limitation, if we have reason to believe that such Content does or might infringe the rights of any third party, has been uploaded or posted in breach of these Terms of Use or applicable law, or is otherwise unacceptable to SetBreak.

XI. Third Party Websites, Services and Services

The Service may provide you with access to third party websites, databases, networks, servers, information, software, programs, systems, directories, Services, or products or services (hereinafter “External Services”).

SetBreak does not have or maintain any control over External Services, and is not and cannot be responsible for their content, operation or use. By linking or otherwise displaying information from or providing access to any External Services, SetBreak does not give any representation, warranty or endorsement, express or implied, with respect to the legality, accuracy, quality or authenticity of content, information or services provided by such External Services.

External Services may have their own terms of use and/or privacy policy, and may have different practices and requirements to those operated by SetBreak with respect to the Service. You are solely responsible for reviewing any terms of use, privacy policy or other terms governing your use of these External Services, which you use at your own risk. You are advised to make reasonable enquiries and investigations before entering into any transaction, financial or otherwise, and whether online or offline, with any third party related to any External Services.

You are solely responsible for taking the precautions necessary to protect yourself from fraud when using External Services, and to protect your computer systems from viruses, worms, Trojan horses, and other harmful or destructive content and material that may be included on or may emanate from any External Services. SetBreak disclaims any and all responsibility or liability for any harm resulting from your use of External Services, and you hereby irrevocably waive any claim against SetBreak with respect to the content or operation of any External Services.

XII. Termination

You may terminate this Agreement at any time by giving 30-days written notice to SetBreak confirming such termination, by removing all of Your Content from your account, by deleting your account and thereafter by ceasing to use the Service. Simply deleting the Service from your mobile device will not effectively terminate your account. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you shall be charged the full subscription rate for any Paid Stations that you are subscribed to if you terminate after the beginning of a pay cycle.

SetBreak may suspend your access to the Service and/or terminate this Agreement at any time if (i) you are deemed to be a repeat copyright infringer as described above; (ii) you are in breach of any of the material provision of these Terms of Use; (iii) SetBreak elects at its discretion to cease providing access to the Service in the jurisdiction where you reside or from where you are attempting to access the Service, or (iv) in other reasonable circumstances as determined by SetBreak at its discretion. If you are currently subscribed to Paid Station(s) at the time that your account is suspended or terminated and your account is suspended or terminated pursuant to (i) or (ii) above, you will not be entitled to any refund for any unexpired period of your subscription.

Once your account has been terminated, any and all Content residing in your account, or pertaining to activity from your account (for example, data relating to the distribution or consumption of your sounds), may be irretrievably deleted by SetBreak, except to the extent that we are obliged or permitted to retain such Content, data or information for a certain period of time in accordance with applicable laws and regulations and/or to protect our legitimate business interests. You are advised to save or back up any material that you have uploaded to your account before terminating your account, as SetBreak assumes no liability for any material that is irretrievably deleted following any termination of your account.

The provisions of these Terms of Use that are intended by their nature to survive the termination or cancellation of this Agreement will survive the termination of this Agreement.

THE SETBREAK SERVICE, INCLUDING THE APPLICATION AND USER INTERFACES, AND ALL CONTENT AND SOFTWARE ASSOCIATED THEREWITH, OR ANY OTHER FEATURES OR FUNCTIONALITIES ASSOCIATED WITH THE SETBREAK SERVICE, ARE PROVIDED "AS IS" AND "AS AVAILABLE" WITH ALL FAULTS AND WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND. WE AND OUR LICENSORS MAKE NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND WITH RESPECT TO THE SETBREAK SERVICE, THE SERVICE AND USER INTERFACES, AND ALL CONTENT AND SOFTWARE ASSOCIATED THEREWITH.

No oral or written information or advice given by us or our authorized representative shall create a warranty or otherwise constitute a representation binding upon SetBreak or its affiliated parties.


XIV. Indemnification

You hereby agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless SetBreak, its successors, assigns, affiliates, agents, directors, officers, employees and shareholders from and against any and all claims, obligations, damages, losses, expenses, and costs, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and court costs, resulting from: (1) any violation by you of these Terms of Use; (2) any claim of infringement of copyright or other intellectual property rights or invasion of privacy arising from the hosting of Your Content on the Service, and/or your making available thereof to other users of the Service, and/or the actual use of Your Content by other users of the Service in accordance with these Terms of Use and the parameters set by you with respect to the distribution and sharing of Your Content; and (3) any activity related to your account, be it by you or by any other person accessing your account with or without your consent unless such activity was caused by the act or default of SetBreak.

XV. Assignment to Third Parties

SetBreak may assign, license, or sub-license its rights and (where permissible by law) its obligations under this Agreement, in whole or in part, to any third party at any time without notice, including without limitation, to any person or entity acquiring all or substantially all of the assets or business of SetBreak. You may not assign this Agreement or the rights and duties hereunder, in whole or in part, to any third party without the prior written consent of SetBreak.

XVI. Severability

Should one or more provisions of these Terms of Use be found to be unlawful, void or unenforceable, such provision(s) shall be deemed severable and will not affect the validity and/or enforceability of the remaining provisions of the Terms of Use, which will remain in full force and effect.

XVII. Entire Agreement

These Terms of Use, together with the Privacy Policy, constitute the entire agreement between you and SetBreak with respect to your use of the Service and supersede any prior agreement between you and SetBreak. Any modifications to this Agreement must be made in writing.

XVIII. Arbitration Agreement

You and SetBreak agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating in any way to the SetBreak service, including our website, user interfaces, and these Terms of Use, shall be determined by binding arbitration instead of in courts of general jurisdiction. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, allows for more limited discovery than in court, and is subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. You agree that, by agreeing to these Terms of Use, the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision, and that you and SetBreak are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of this Agreement and the termination of your use of the Service.

If you elect to seek arbitration, you must first send to SetBreak, by certified mail, a written Notice of your claim (“Notice”). If SetBreak elects to seek arbitration, it will send a written Notice to the email address used for your membership account. A Notice, whether sent by you or by SetBreak, must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”). If SetBreak and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or SetBreak may commence an arbitration proceeding or file a claim in small claims court. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by SetBreak or you shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator. You may download or copy a form Notice and a form to initiate arbitration at www.adr.org. The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, "AAA Rules") of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), as modified by this Agreement, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules and Forms are available online at www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by writing to SetBreak. The arbitrator is bound by the terms of this Agreement. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including issues relating to the scope and enforceability of this arbitration agreement. Unless SetBreak and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in the county (or parish) of your billing address. (If you reside outside of the United States, any arbitration hearings will take place in your country of residence at a location reasonably convenient to you, but will remain subject to the AAA Rules including the AAA rules regarding the selection of an arbitrator). If your claim is for US$10,000 or less, we agree that you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If your claim exceeds US$10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based. If the arbitrator issues you an award that is greater than the value of SetBreak’s last written settlement offer made before an arbitrator was selected (or if SetBreak did not make a settlement offer before an arbitrator was selected), then SetBreak will pay you the amount of the award or US$1,000, whichever is greater. Except as expressly set forth herein, the payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA Rules.

YOU AND SETBREAK AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and SetBreak agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims with your claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party's individual claim.

XIX. Governing Law

These Terms of Use shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California, U.S.A. without regard to conflict of laws provisions. The exclusive jurisdiction and venue for any action, suit or proceeding based upon any matter arising hereunder or relating hereto shall be in the state or federal courts located in the State of California. If any provision or provisions of these terms shall be held to be invalid, illegal, unenforceable or in conflict with the law of any jurisdiction, the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions shall not in any way be affected or impaired thereby, and shall remain in full force and effect.
