No compensation will be paid with respect to our use of your Content under this grant.

You also hereby grant Sonicbids a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free license to use your name and logo (“Brand Features”), in connection with (i) advertising and promoting your Content, and your artistic work generally via the Site, and (ii) advertising and promoting our Website and Services.

Sonicbids will not further distribute or use your Content or your name and logo for any purposes other than those specified in this section (Section 4.4) without your consent.

4.5. Your Grant of Rights to Other Registered Members For Noncommercial Purposes.

This information may be provided for the current month and/or historically for the year or the length of the Registered Member’s membership with Sonicbids. While a user may view a Registered Member’s EPK as many times as they want each day, only one “visit” will be tracked per day per user. That way there won’t be any inflation of the Registered Member’s EPK Visits Tracker if someone opens that EPK over and over. Visits from homepage spotlights, emailed EPKs, and Sonicbids charts are counted. No personally identifiable information for the EPK visitor will be provided in association with the EPK Visits Tracker. Additionally, Sonicbids is under no obligation to provide an EPK Visits Tracker or any other information related to hits or visits to Registered Member EPKs.

4.9. Termination of Rights; Survival. Sonicbids does not claim ownership of the Content you post in your EPK or otherwise provide through the Site. The licenses granted to us and to our Registered Members in this Section will terminate respectively at the time you completely remove the Content at issue from our Site. This termination will not affect licenses to the Content granted by you before the time you completely remove the Content, and our Members (as well as Sonicbids) will continue to enjoy their rights under Section 4.4 (Your Grant of Rights to Sonicbids) and Section 4.5 (Your Grant of Rights to Members). For example, a Registered Member may include a photograph or videoclip from your EPK in their EPK to illustrate their mention of a concert that they performed with you. If you remove that Content from your EPK, the Registered Member may continue to use that photograph or videoclip, though other Registered Members who are not already using that Content may not make future use of that Content.

6. Code of Conduct

Our Site may provide EPKs, blogs, chat rooms, message boards, email services, and other services that allow you to interact with other Site Visitors and Registered Members (“Interactive Services”). As a condition to your use of the Website, the Services, and the Content, including the Interactive Services, you agree to follow our Code of Conduct, set out below. Under this Code, you will not:

  • Upload, email or otherwise transmit any images or other Content that are unlawful, obscene, harmful, hateful, invade the privacy of any third party, contain nudity or pornography, or are otherwise objectionable.
  • Disseminate materials that impact or invade the privacy of others, such as photographs, video clips, sound recordings, personally identifiable information, or other materials that reveal personal, private or sensitive information about another person, without that person’s consent.
  • Submit material that is intentionally false, defamatory, unlawfully threatening, or unlawfully harassing.
  • Infringe any third party’s copyright, patent, trademark, trade secret, or other proprietary rights or rights of publicity or privacy. Electronic materials – such as music, videos, games, images, and text in electronic form — can easily be copied, modified and sent over networks (such as the Internet). These electronic materials are thus extremely vulnerable to unauthorized distribution and copyright infringement. These materials may not be transmitted over the Website without the copyright owner’s permission, or without a legitimate “fair use” justification for the transmittal.
  • Transmit materials that contain any viruses, Trojan horses, worms, time bombs, cancelbots, or other computer-programming routines that are intended to damage, detrimentally interfere with, surreptitiously intercept, or expropriate any system, data, or personal information.
  • Use the Service to artificially generate traffic or page links to a Web site or for any other purpose not expressly allowed under these Terms.
  • Use the Website in a manner that could disable, overburden, or impair the Site or interfere with any other party’s use and enjoyment of the Site, such as through sending “spam” email.
  • Seek to obtain access to any materials or information through “hacking,” “data harvesting,” or through other means we have not intentionally made available to you through the Website.
  • Use the Website for any purpose that is unlawful or prohibited by these Terms. For example, you will not use the Website, Services, or Content to violate any law, statute, or regulation (including, without limitation, those governing export control, consumer protection, unfair competition, anti-discrimination, or false advertising).

We will enforce the above Code of Conduct wherever we deem necessary. Please understand, however, that Sonicbids does not control – and does not necessarily endorse — the Content found in any Interactive Service. When you participate in the Interactive Services, you do so at your own risk, and we expressly disclaim responsibility for the Content found in these Services.

7. Monitoring of Interactive Services; Removing Postings

We expect each user of our Website to act responsibly, and to respect the rights of others. We seek to protect the integrity and security of our computing systems, and the right to protect our community of Registered Members from claims of intellectual property infringement and other claims or threats, such as those detailed in our Code of Conduct. Toward these ends, we reserve the right in our discretion (i) to monitor your use of the Website, your profile, and email and other Content transmitted through the Site, (ii) to restrict or foreclose access from certain Internet sites or other resources, and (iii) to take other actions we deem necessary to protect our community of users and our resources. Due to this monitoring, you cannot expect that communications through our Website will remain “private” or otherwise free of our review. Please refer to our Privacy Policy for a precise statement concerning your expectations of privacy.

We have no – and assume no — obligation to monitor activities on our Website, please understand that we may employ filters designed to detect and block the transmission of messages that contain sexually explicit or otherwise inappropriate language. We reserve the right to edit, to refuse to post, or to remove any information or materials, in whole or in part, that we believe, in our sole discretion, are incompatible with our Code of Conduct.

7.2. Reports and Complaints. If you believe that a Registered Member or other user has acted inappropriately, such as by violating our Code of Conduct, you may report your concerns either via the links we have included on the Site, or by contacting us in accordance with Section 25 (Contact Us). If we are notified by a Registered Member or Site Visitor that he or she believes Content at the Site does not comply with our Code of Conduct, we may investigate the allegation and determine in good faith, in our sole discretion, whether to remove or block access to such Content, or to take action with respect to person or persons responsible for posting the Content. We have the right (but not the obligation), in our sole discretion, to remove, relocate, change from public to private, or otherwise block or restrict any Content at any time, with or without notice, and without liability.

7.3. Revocation or Suspension of Use Privileges. We reserve the right at any time to terminate or suspend your access to some or all of the Interactive Services or the Website if you engage in activities that we conclude, in our discretion, breach our Code of Conduct.

Users should also understand that our Code of Conduct is based in many instances on principles of state and federal law. Users who violate our Code of Conduct accordingly may be exposed under these state and federal laws to criminal charges, and civil liability to harmed parties for compensatory damages and attorney’s fees. Sonicbids reserves the right at all times to disclose information it deems necessary to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process, or governmental request, consistent with its Privacy Policy.
