RedFizz Terms of Service

Read This Terms of Use Agreement Before Accessing Website.

 

Effective Date:  This Terms of Use Agreement was last updated on January 25, 2008.

IMPORTANT: RedFizz is not out to screw you, sell your music, interfere with any label contracts, or otherwise annoy you.  As described below, you can request to have your music taken offline whenever you want to. Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns about these terms.

This Terms of Use Agreement sets forth the standards of use of the RedFizz Online Service. By using the RedFizz.com website (“RedFizz,” “Us,” “We,” “the Website,” or “the Service”), you (the “User” or “You”) agree to these terms and conditions. Users include both registered members and unregistered visitors. If you do not agree to the terms and conditions of this agreement, you should immediately cease all usage of this website. We reserve the right, at any time, to modify, alter, or update the terms and conditions of this agreement. We will post notice of any such modifications on the RedFizz message board, at which point the modifications shall become effective. If the modifications are not to your liking, you may remove your songs as detailed below and terminate your relationship with RedFizz. However, your continued use of the Service after amendments are posted constitutes an acknowledgement and acceptance of the Agreement and its modifications. Except as provided in this paragraph, this Agreement may not be amended.

 

1.      Description of Service

 

RedFizz is providing User with a music hosting service. User must provide (1)  all equipment necessary for their own Internet connection, including computer and modem and (2) provide for User’s access to the Internet, and (3) pay any fees relate with such connection.

 

2.      RedFizz Rights

 

As noted above, RedFizz is not in the business of selling music. However, by posting or submitting any sound recordings, pictures, videos, lyrics, text, trade names, artist names, marks, likenesses, logos, or other materials (henceforth called “Material”) to RedFizz (“RedFizz,” “Us,” or “We”), you hereby grant us a non-exclusive, fully-paid and royalty-free, worldwide license (with the right to sublicense through unlimited levels of sublicensees) to use, copy, modify, adapt, translate, publicly perform, publicly display, store, reproduce, transmit, and distribute such Material (in whole or in part) on and through the website or any other medium We deem appropriate. This license will terminate at the time that such Material is removed from the website.

 

We reserve the right to use your Material to promote RedFizz products and services without payment to you or any other persons or companies. We may also waive, on your behalf, any performance royalties on the Material for airplay in any medium, including internet, radio (terrestrial and satellite), and television, for the purpose of promoting RedFizz, your band, or your music.

 

USERS MAY REQUEST AT ANY TIME THE REMOVAL OF ANY SOUND RECORDINGS THEY HAVE POSTED. HOWEVER, ANY COMMENTS OR MESSAGE BOARD POSTS USERS HAVE MADE WHILE A USER WILL REMAIN ON REDFIZZ INDEFINITELY.  ANY COMMENTS OR MESSAGE BOARD POSTS THAT OTHER USERS MAY HAVE MADE ABOUT A USER'S SONG OR BAND WILL REMAIN ON REDFIZZ INDEFINITELY.

 

IN THE EVENT THAT A USER REQUESTS THE REMOVAL OF ANY SOUND RECORDING(S) THAT THE USER HAS POSTED, SAID RECORDING(S) MAY STILL REMAIN ACCESSIBLE FROM THE SITE FOR UP TO 3 DAYS, AFTER WHICH TIME THEY WILL BE MADE INACCESSIBLE FROM THE SITE.

PLEASE NOTE THAT WHILE A SONG WILL BE MADE INACCESSIBLE AFTER THREE DAYS, IT MAY TAKE ADDITIONAL TIME FOR IT TO BE FULLY REMOVED CLEARED FROM ALL OF OUR SYSTEMS. HOWEVER, THE RECORDING(S) WILL NOT BE GENERALLY ACCESSIBLE TO USERS OF THE WEBSITE DURING THIS LAG TIME.

RedFizz reserves the right to continue to display band pages, song pages, critic pages, and other meta information about bands, songs, and critics as seen fit by RedFizz management.

* The reason we require a minimum of three days for any song is that RedFizz is all about discussion. It would be damaging to the Website if, for example, the feature song were removed by the artist during its 24 hours on the homepage. Please contact us if you have any questions about this policy.
