No Relationship to Any Streaming Service and Curators Not Paid to Endorse or Promote Artists’ Work. We are an independent organization that helps link artists seeking feedback on their music to knowledgeable curators who curate successful playlists on popular streaming services (e.g., Spotify, YouTube) and are willing to listen to and review artists’ submissions. ARTISTLIB IS NOT AFFILIATED WITH OR A PART OF ANY STREAMING SERVICE. PAYING FOR A CAMPAIGN DOES NOT GUARANTEE THAT A SONG WILL BE ADDED TO ANY PLAYLIST ON ANY STREAMING SERVICE. CURATORS ARE PAID ONLY TO REVIEW ARTISTS’ SUBMISSIONS; IF THEY LIKE WHAT THEY HEAR, THEY MAY ADD IT TO A PLAYLIST, BUT THAT DECISION IS SOLELY AT THE CURATORS’ DISCRETION.

Important Terms Regarding Connecting to Spotify. Although we are independent from Spotify, you may use the Service in connection with Spotify. If you do so, please note the following:

  1. Artistlib does not make any warranties or representations on behalf of Spotify and expressly disclaims all implied warranties with respect to the Spotify Platform, Spotify Service and Spotify Content, including the implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose and non-infringement;
  2. you are prohibited from using the Service to modify or create derivative works based on the Spotify Platform, Spotify Service or Spotify Content;
  3. you are prohibited from using the Service to decompile, reverse-engineer, disassemble, and otherwise reduce the Spotify Platform, Spotify Service, and Spotify Content to source code or other human-perceivable form, to the full extent allowed by law;
  4. We are responsible for the Service and disclaim any liability for the Services on the part of Spotify;
  5. We are not responsible for Spotify, and we encourage you to consult Spotify’s legal disclosures or to contact Spotify directly if you have questions specifically about Spotify;
  6. Spotify is an intended third-party beneficiary of these Terms (including our Privacy Policy) and you agree that Spotify may directly enforce these Terms against you where they have a legal interest in doing so.

Purchases and payments

You may purchase credits or receive payment as a curator through the Service. You do so subject to the terms and policies contained in these Terms of Service.

You agree to pay all charges that may be incurred by you or on your behalf through the 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.

You may fund your account via PayPal and you can earn funds by approving premium/express submissions as a curator(reviewer).

Deposited funds will appear as “credits” in your account balance and be available for you to purchase premium or express submissions. Deposited funds may not be cashed out or refunded.

Earned funds will appear in your account balance and may be cashed out upon your request per the instructions given elsewhere on the site. The Company may from time to time and at its own discretion add or remove additional ways in which you can earn funds. Funds earned in this way will have the same conditions applicable as funds earned by responding to Premium and Express submissions. The Company reserves the right to add additional conditions on funds earned in the aforementioned ways. Please note that if your Account is inactive for a six-month period (i.e you have not signed into your Account, you have not added more Deposited funds, you have not purchased any credits, or you have not received any earned funds during that time), then we may deem your Account inactive. If your Account is inactive after a twelve-month period, your Account balance may be charged an inactive fee. Company may, but has no obligation to give you prior notice of the imposition of any inactive fee.

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 of Service 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 of Service, misuse of the Service, illegal conduct, or some other violation of the law or Artistlib policy (a “Violation”). If we determine a violation has occurred, all or part of your balance may be forfeit.

PayPal payments

The terms of payment for the price of the Services are described on the Site. Payment is made by direct debit from the Customer’s credit card number or other option that our payment provider offers. The payment method is provided by Paypal, which alone keeps the Customer’s bank details for this purpose. Artistlib does not keep any bank details. The Customer warrants to Artistlib that he or she has the necessary authorizations to use the chosen payment method.

Refunds

We do not offer refunds on deposited funds under any circumstances. However, if you as a customer have submitted a song to a curator(reviewer) and have not received a review on your song(s) within the given time, your credit may be refunded to your account balance. We do not guarantee a refund in all cases.

Links to Other Websites

Our Service may contain links to third-party web sites or services that are not owned or controlled by the Company.

The Company has no control over, and assumes no responsibility for, the content, privacy policies, or practices of any third party web sites or services. You further acknowledge and agree that the Company shall not be responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any damage or loss caused or alleged to be caused by or in connection with the use of or reliance on any such content, goods or services available on or through any such web sites or services.

We strongly advise You to read the terms of service and privacy policies of any third-party web sites or services that You visit.

Termination

We may terminate or suspend Your access immediately, without prior notice or liability, for any reason whatsoever, including without limitation if You breach these Terms of Service.

Upon termination, Your right to use the Service will cease immediately.

Limitation of Liability

Notwithstanding any damages that You might incur, the entire liability of the Company and any of its suppliers under any provision of this Terms and Your exclusive remedy for all of the foregoing shall be limited to the amount actually paid by You through the Service or 100 USD if You haven’t purchased anything through the Service.

To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, in no event shall the Company or its suppliers be liable for any special, incidental, indirect, or consequential damages whatsoever (including, but not limited to, damages for loss of profits, loss of data or other information, for business interruption, for personal injury, loss of privacy arising out of or in any way related to the use of or inability to use the Service, third-party software and/or third-party hardware used with the Service, or otherwise in connection with any provision of this Terms), even if the Company or any supplier has been advised of the possibility of such damages and even if the remedy fails of its essential purpose.

Some states do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties or limitation of liability for incidental or consequential damages, which means that some of the above limitations may not apply. In these states, each party’s liability will be limited to the greatest extent permitted by law.

“AS IS” and “AS AVAILABLE” Disclaimer

The Service is provided to You “AS IS” and “AS AVAILABLE” and with all faults and defects without warranty of any kind. To the maximum extent permitted under applicable law, the Company, on its own behalf and on behalf of its Affiliates and its and their respective licensors and service providers, expressly disclaims all warranties, whether express, implied, statutory or otherwise, with respect to the Service, including all implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title and non-infringement, and warranties that may arise out of course of dealing, course of performance, usage or trade practice. Without limitation to the foregoing, the Company provides no warranty or undertaking, and makes no representation of any kind that the Service will meet Your requirements, achieve any intended results, be compatible or work with any other software, applications, systems or services, operate without interruption, meet any performance or reliability standards or be error free or that any errors or defects can or will be corrected.

Without limiting the foregoing, neither the Company nor any of the company’s provider makes any representation or warranty of any kind, express or implied: (i) as to the operation or availability of the Service, or the information, content, and materials or products included thereon; (ii) that the Service will be uninterrupted or error-free; (iii) as to the accuracy, reliability, or currency of any information or content provided through the Service; or (iv) that the Service, its servers, the content, or e-mails sent from or on behalf of the Company are free of viruses, scripts, trojan horses, worms, malware, timebombs or other harmful components.

Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain types of warranties or limitations on applicable statutory rights of a consumer, so some or all of the above exclusions and limitations may not apply to You. But in such a case the exclusions and limitations set forth in this section shall be applied to the greatest extent enforceable under applicable law.

Governing Law

The laws of the Country, excluding its conflicts of law rules, shall govern this Terms and Your use of the Service. Your use of the Application may also be subject to other local, state, national, or international laws.

Disputes Resolution

If You have any concern or dispute about the Service, You agree to first try to resolve the dispute informally by contacting the Company.

For European Union (EU) Users

If You are a European Union consumer, you will benefit from any mandatory provisions of the law of the country in which you are resident in.

United States Legal Compliance

You represent and warrant that (i) You are not located in a country that is subject to the United States government embargo, or that has been designated by the United States government as a “terrorist supporting” country, and (ii) You are not listed on any United States government list of prohibited or restricted parties.

Severability and Waiver

Severability

If any provision of these Terms is held to be unenforceable or invalid, such provision will be changed and interpreted to accomplish the objectives of such provision to the greatest extent possible under applicable law and the remaining provisions will continue in full force and effect.

Waiver

Except as provided herein, the failure to exercise a right or to require performance of an obligation under this Terms shall not effect a party’s ability to exercise such right or require such performance at any time thereafter nor shall be the waiver of a breach constitute a waiver of any subsequent breach.

Changes to These Terms of Service

We reserve the right, at Our sole discretion, to modify or replace these Terms at any time with or without prior notice. You are advised to review this Terms of Service periodically for any changes. Changes to this Terms of Service are effective when they are posted on this page.
