BUYING BEATS ON AIRBIT™
7. Conditions Of Sale
Compositions and recordings (Beats) are made available by third parties (Producers) through our platforms. Airbit requires all Producers to confirm that the Producer’s Beats do not infringe any third party rights and that they have the necessary permissions to make the Beats available and grant ongoing rights to purchasers.
Airbit provide a platform for the Producers to sell their Beats. As a purchaser, your contractual relationship relating to Beats is with the licensor or seller of Beats and not with Airbit.
When you purchase Beats, it will be under the conditions and limitations of the licence terms stipulated by the relevant Producer. These terms will be presented prior to completing the purchase of a Beat. If you do not agree to those licence terms, you must not purchase that Beat. Any exploitation of Beats by a purchaser which is outside of the Producer’s licence terms will be a potential breach of contract and a potential breach of intellectual property rights, for which you will be liable.
8. Purchaser obligations
We wish to promote an environment where people can share their music and be properly remunerated for their work. By accessing our website, you agree that you shall not breach another party’s intellectual property rights and that you will adhere to the terms of any licence agreement.
In the event that in our reasonable belief a party breaches these terms, any Producer license terms or infringes ours or a Producer’s intellectual property rights we reserve the right (without limiting any other rights and remedies) to immediately terminate or suspend your account and share your account details (including personal information) with the relevant rights holder or authorities.
You shall indemnify us against any and all direct and indirect claims, losses, damages, costs and liabilities arising out of any infringement by you or permitted by of a Producer’s rights.

We offer two ways of selling your Beats (Producer Services):

- displaying the Producer Materials (excluding Beats) on its Producer Services; and
- using the Producer Materials for the promotion and marketing or Airbit.
11. Producer Obligations

You shall indemnify us against any and all direct and indirect claims, losses, damages, costs and liabilities arising out of any breach by you of these terms.
Access to our Producer Services is provided on a recurring subscription basis of six monthly or twelve monthly periods. Subscriptions will automatically renew at the end of each subscription period unless you cancel the subscription by giving us one calendar months’ notice by email to email@example.com. The cancellation will take effect the day after the last day of your current subscription period – it is not possible to terminate a subscription part way through a subscription period.

13. Prices, Payment and Fees

OTHER SERVICES ON AIRBIT™
14. Marketplace Promotion
Producers may pay to feature Beats on our homepage. You are able to place an order for a Marketplace promotion through our website. Once your order has been placed we will send an email to you to confirm that your order has been accepted and our contract with you will come into force.
You must purchase a minimum promotional period of 7 days, which will run consecutively. You may feature different Beats throughout the promotional period but may only feature one Beat a day. Once a Beat has been selected for a particular day it may not be changed for 24 hours so you must ensure that you have correctly selected the Beat you want featured that day.
All features will rotate on the homepage to give all Beats the same visibility. Your Beat will feature on the homepage at some point, however, the frequency will change depending on the number of other Beats featured during the same time period.
Airbit do not make any guarantees that this feature will increase sales.
There may be instances where we are unable to accept your order, for example, due to high demand or technical issues. If this is this case, we will send an email confirming that we have rejected your order and refund any charges paid for the Marketplace promotion.
