The SODA Terms and Conditions (“Terms”, “Terms and Conditions”) is a legally binding agreement between the user (“you”, “your”) and Rewriter Arts LLC (dba “Rewriters”, “Rewriter Arts”) (“Rewriters”, “Rewriter Arts”, “we”, “our”). By accessing and using Rewriters’ Simplified Online Digital Audio Services (“SODA”), you agree to be bound by these Terms. If you do not agree to all the conditions contained in the Terms, you must not access or use SODA.
2.0. PRIVACY PRACTICES:
3.0. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY:
4.0. INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS and USER PERMISSIONS:
SODA and its contents, features, and functionality (including but not limited to all code, text, images, and audio) are owned by Rewriter Arts.
4.1. Upon creating an account and agreeing to these Terms, you are given a single (one, 1) Download Credit on your account, which you can redeem in exchange for permission to download any single arrangement of our audio properties (“Beat”, “Beats”) through a link provided by SODA’s built-in file-downloading interface (“The Generate Window”).
4.2. You may choose to purchase a Lifetime License to use SODA indefinitely. If you do so, Section 4.3 and Section 4.4 of these Terms will be null and void, and you will be granted continuous permission to access and use SODA.
4.3. If, at any time, the amount of Download Credits on your account is greater than or equal to one (1), you are granted permission to access and use SODA to create Beats, to save your Beats to our server as .xml files (“Project Files”), and to load your Beats from our server. IF, AT ANY TIME, THE AMOUNT OF DOWNLOAD CREDITS ON YOUR ACCOUNT IS LESS THAN OR EQUAL TO ZERO (0), YOUR PERMISSION TO ACCESS AND USE SODA TO CREATE, SAVE, AND LOAD BEATS WILL BE SUSPENDED. You will, however, retain permission to download Beats for which you have previously exchanged Download Credits. Adding Download Credits to your account by purchasing Download Credits, subscribing to a monthly Download Credit plan, or purchasing a Lifetime License will reinstate your access and use permissions.
4.4. When you choose to download a Beat, a transaction will proceed as follows: The Generate Window will provide you a link to download your Beat, and the amount of Download Credits on your account will decrease by one (1). Before providing the download link, The Generate Window will first play the Beat through your device’s audio output (a process which takes an amount of time equal to the duration of the Beat). During playback, you may choose to cancel the transaction. If you choose to cancel the transaction, you will NOT be provided with a download link, and the amount of Download Credits on your account will NOT decrease. As soon as playback has concluded, the transaction will proceed, you will be provided with a link to download your Beat, and the amount of Download Credits on your account will decrease by one (1). THIS TRANSACTION IS FINAL. Once the transaction has been concluded, the Project File for your Beat will be archived. You will no longer have permission to edit the Project File, but you will retain permission to download that Beat again without being obligated to exchange a Download Credit for the download link.
4.5. You are granted a commercial, transferable, irrevocable license to any Beat you download from SODA IF AND ONLY IF all of the following conditions are met.
A.) You download the Beat by exchanging a Download Credit for a download link provided by The Generate Window.
B.) You download the Beat while logged into a SODA account that you own and/or have explicit permission from its owner to access and edit.
C.) The billing information you provide (including but not limited to credit/debit card numbers, names, and addresses) is authentic and belongs to you.
D.) THE BEAT DOES NOT CONTAIN ANY MELODIC COMPONENTS THAT YOU DID NOT COMPOSE, OR DO NOT HAVE THE PROPER LEGAL LICENSE TO USE.
4.6. If all the conditions described above in Section 4.5 of these Terms are met, you will be granted a commercial, transferable, irrevocable license to use your Beat in ways and circumstances including but not limited to the following.
A.) Publish on sales and streaming platforms for profit.
B.) Make and distribute copies.
C.) Edit or supplement in other workstations.
D.) Sell online.
E.) Sample into your own productions.
F.) Use as a soundtrack piece for video.
