Opening your SoundID account

If you choose to register on the App by opening your SoundID account, you will need to enter your username, email address and password. 

You represent and warrant that (1) all registration information you submit is true, accurate, current, and complete, and (2) you will maintain the accuracy of such information and promptly update such registration information as necessary. 

If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current, or incomplete, we have the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the App (or any portion thereof).

You agree to keep your password confidential and will be responsible for any use of your account and password. You agree to notify Sonarworks immediately of any unauthorized use of your account or password, or any other breach of security. You may be held liable for losses incurred by Sonarworks or any other user or visitor of the App due to someone else using your password or account as a result of your failing to keep your account information secure and confidential.

We reserve the right to remove, reclaim, or change the username you select if we determine, in our sole discretion, that the chosen username is inappropriate, obscene, or otherwise objectionable.

You represent and warrant that you grant us access to your Third-Party Account without your breaching of any of the terms and conditions that govern your use of the applicable Third-Party Account, and without obligating us to pay any fees or making us subject to any usage limitations imposed by the third-party service provider of the Third-Party Account.

Depending on the Third-Party Accounts you choose and subject to the privacy settings that you have set in such Third-Party Accounts, personally identifiable information that you post to your Third-Party Accounts may be available on and through your account on the App. 

YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH THE THIRD-PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS ASSOCIATED WITH YOUR THIRD-PARTY ACCOUNTS IS GOVERNED SOLELY BY YOUR AGREEMENT(S) WITH SUCH THIRD-PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS.

If a Third-Party Account or associated services become unavailable or our access to the applicable Third-Party Account is terminated by the third-party service provider, the use of the App may no longer be possible. 

You will have the option to disable the connection between your account on the App and your Third-Party Accounts at any time by contacting us using the contact information below.

In case the connection with the Third-Party Account is disabled, we will attempt to delete any information stored on our servers that was obtained through the Third-Party Account, except the username, email address and profile picture that become associated with your account.

THIRD-PARTY SERVICES

You acknowledge and agree that the availability of the App is dependent on the third party from which you received the App, e.g., the Apple App Store or Android stores (“Application Store”). You acknowledge that this Agreement is between you and Sonarworks and not with the Application Store. You must comply with the Application Store’s terms of agreement when using the App. 

The license granted to you for our App is limited to a non-transferable license to use the App on a device that utilizes the Apple iOS or Android operating systems, as applicable, and in accordance with the usage rules set forth in the applicable App distributor’s terms of service. The App distributor has no obligation whatsoever to furnish any maintenance and support services with respect to the App. 

FEEDBACK AND INFORMATION

Any feedback and information you provide on the App shall be deemed to be non-confidential and shall become our sole property. We shall own exclusive rights, including all intellectual property rights, and shall be entitled to the unrestricted use and dissemination of this feedback or information for any lawful purpose, commercial or otherwise, without acknowledgment or compensation to you. You hereby waive all moral rights to any such feedback and/or information, and you hereby warrant that you are the original author of any such feedback and/or information, or that you have the right to submit such feedback or information. 

THIRD-PARTY WEBSITES AND CONTENT

The App may contain links to other mobile applications and websites owned and operated by parties other than Sonarworks. We do not control such applications and websites, and cannot be held responsible for their content, and we do not endorse such websites unless specifically stated otherwise. 

We accept no liability for any information, products, advertisements, content, services or software accessible through these third-party applications or websites or for any action you may take as a result of linking to any such application or website. 

If you decide to access these third-party applications or websites, you do so at your own risk, and these Terms of Use and the SoundID Privacy Policy are no longer applicable. 

Any purchases you make through these third-party applications or websites will be between you and the applicable third party, and we take no responsibility whatsoever in relation to such purchases. 

We are under no obligation to maintain any link on the App and may remove links at any time in our sole discretion for any reason whatsoever. 

APP MANAGEMENT

We reserve the right, but not the obligation, to: 

(1) monitor the App for violations of these Terms of Use; 

(2) in our sole discretion and without limitation, refuse, limit the availability of, or disable (to the extent technologically feasible) your use of the App or any content provided by you in the App;

(5) otherwise manage the App in a manner designed to protect our rights and property, and to facilitate the proper functioning of the App.

We reserve the right to suspend, discontinue, change, revise, update or otherwise modify the App or the contents of the App at any time or for any reason at our sole discretion without notice. However, we have no obligation to update any information on our App. We also reserve the right to modify or discontinue all or part of the App without notice at any time. We will not be liable to you or any third party for any modification, price change, suspension, or discontinuation of the App.

We cannot guarantee the App will be available at all times. We may experience hardware, software, or other problems or need to perform maintenance related to the App, resulting in interruptions, delays or errors. 

You agree that we shall not be liable for any loss, damage or inconvenience caused by your inability to access or use the App during any downtime or discontinuation of the App. Nothing in these Terms of Use shall be construed to obligate us to maintain, support or supply any corrections or updates to or releases of the App.

COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENTS

If you find out that any material available on or through the App infringes upon any copyright you own or control, please notify us immediately using the contact information provided below. 

PRIVACY POLICY

The SoundID Privacy Policy applies to the use of this App, and its terms are made a part of these Terms of Use by this reference. To view the SoundID Privacy Policy, click here

The SoundID Privacy Policy sets out the terms on which we process any personal data we collect from you or that you provide to us. By installing, using and registering on the App, you consent to such processing, and you warrant that all data provided by you is accurate.

The App is hosted in the Republic of Latvia (a European Union member state). If you access the App from the United States, Asia, or any other region of the world with laws or other requirements governing personal data collection, use, or disclosure that differ from applicable laws in the European Union, then through your continued use of the App, you are transferring your data to the Republic of Latvia, and you expressly consent to have your data transferred to and processed in the Republic of Latvia. 

In addition, we do not knowingly accept, request, or solicit information from children or knowingly market to children. Therefore, in accordance with Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, and repealing Directive 95/46/EC (General Data Protection Regulation), if we receive actual knowledge that anyone under the age of 13 has provided personal information to us without the requisite and verifiable parental consent, we will delete that information from the App as quickly as is reasonably practical.

DISCLAIMERS AND LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY

Access to the App and its content is provided on an “as is, as available” basis.

To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, we disclaim all warranties, express or implied, relating to the App and its contents, including, without limitation, merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, availability or non-infringement.

While we may use reasonable efforts to include accurate and up-to-date information on the App, we make no warranties or representations as to its accuracy or completeness.

We do not warrant that (1) the App will always be accessible, uninterrupted, timely, secure, error-free or free from viruses or other invasive or damaging code, that (2) there will be no unauthorized access to or use of our secure servers and/or any and all personal information stored therein, or that (3) the App will not be affected by any acts of God or other force majeure events, including the inability to obtain or shortage of necessary equipment facilities, power or telecommunications, lack of telecommunications equipment or facilities and failure of information technology or telecommunications equipment or facilities.

We assume no liability or responsibility for any personal injury or property damages of any nature whatsoever, resulting from your access to and/or use of the App.

The above exclusions and limitations apply only to the extent permitted by law. None of your statutory rights as a consumer, which cannot be excluded or limited, are affected.

Notwithstanding our efforts to ensure that our App is secure, you acknowledge that all electronic data transfers are potentially susceptible to interception by others. We cannot and do not warrant that data transfers relating to the App, or electronic mail transmitted to and from us, will not be monitored or read by others.

Our officers, shareholders, employees, or agents shall in no event be liable in contract, tort (including negligence or breach of statutory duty) or otherwise howsoever and whatever the cause thereof, for any indirect, consequential, collateral, special or incidental loss or damage suffered or incurred by you in connection with the use of App and these Terms of Use. 

For the purposes of these Terms of Use, indirect or consequential loss or damage includes, without limitation, loss of revenue, profits, anticipated savings or business, loss of data, loss of use or value of any equipment including software, claims of third parties, and all associated and incidental costs and expenses.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, our liability to you for any cause whatsoever and regardless of the forms of the action, shall at all times be limited to $100. 

Some jurisdictions do not allow limitations of liability. If these laws apply to you, some or all of the above disclaimers or limitations may not apply to you, and you may have additional rights.

INDEMNIFICATION

You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold us harmless, including all our officers, shareholders, employees, agents, partners from and against any loss, liability, claim, or expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, made against us by any third party due to or arising out of your use of the App, breach of these Terms of Use, any breach of your representations and warranties set forth in these Terms of Use or your violation of the rights of a third party, including, but not limited to, intellectual property rights. 

Notwithstanding the foregoing, we reserve the right, at your expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter for which you are required to indemnify us, and you agree to cooperate, at your expense, with our defense of such claims. We will use reasonable efforts to notify you of any such claim, action, or proceeding which is subject to this indemnification upon becoming aware of it.

GOVERNING LAW AND DISPUTE RESOLUTION

If you accessed the App in the European Union 

If you assessed the App in a European Union member state, the law of the Republic of Latvia applies exclusively, with the exception of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods, even if your place of residence is abroad. This choice of law shall not, however, have the result of depriving you as the consumer of the protection afforded to you by provisions that cannot be derogated from by agreement by virtue of the law which, in the absence of choice, would have been applicable on the basis of Article 6 I of Regulation (EC) No 593/2008 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 17 June 2008 on the law applicable to contractual obligations (Rome I).

All present and future claims in respect of any dispute arising out of and/or in connection with these Terms of Use will fall under the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the Republic of Latvia. 

If you accessed the App outside the European Union 

If you assessed the App outside the European Union, these Terms of Use are governed by the laws of the United States of America and of the State of California without regard to its conflicts of law provisions. The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded.

All present and future claims in respect of any dispute arising out of and/or in connection with these Terms of Use will fall under the exclusive jurisdiction of the federal or state courts located in the city of San Francisco, California.

TERM AND TERMINATION

These Terms of Use shall remain in full force and effect while you use the App. 

Without limiting any other provisions of these Terms of Use, we reserve the rights to, in our sole discretion and without notice and liability, deny access to and use of the App to any person for any reason or for no reason, including, without limitation, for breach of any representation, warranty or commitment contained in these Terms of Use or of any applicable laws. We may terminate your use of the App or delete your account or any information you entered at any time, without warning. 

If we terminate or suspend your account for any reason, you are prohibited from registering on the App and creating a new account under your name, a fake or borrowed name, or the name of any third party, even if you may be acting on behalf of the third party. In addition to terminating or suspending your account, we reserve the right to take appropriate legal action, including, without limitation, pursuing civil, criminal, and injunctive redress.

MISCELLANEOUS

These Terms of Use constitute the entire agreement and understanding between you and us with regard to your use of the App.

Our failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms of Use shall not operate as a waiver of such right or provision. 

We may transfer our rights and obligations under these Terms of Use to another organization or organizations. We will ensure that the transfer will not affect your rights under these Terms of Use.

If any of the provision of these Terms of Use are held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be unlawful, void, or unenforceable, that provision shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary and replaced with a valid provision that best embodies the intent of these Terms of Use, so that these Terms of Use shall remain in full force and effect. 

AMENDMENTS

We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to make changes or modifications to these Terms of Use at any time and for any reason. We will alert you about any changes by updating the “Last updated” date of these Terms of Use, and you waive any right to receive specific notice of each such change. You will be subject to and deemed to have accepted and have been informed of the changes in any revised Terms of Use by your continued use of the App after the date of posting such revised Terms of Use.
