Changes to Terms of Use

We reserve the right to change, alter, replace or otherwise modify these Terms of Use at any time. The date of last modification is stated at the end of these Terms of Use. It is your responsibility to check this page from time to time for updates.

When we make any updates to these Terms of Use, we will highlight this fact on the Website. In addition, if you register an account and these Terms of Use are subsequently changed in any material respect (for example, for security, legal, or regulatory reasons), we will notify you in advance by sending a message to your OMGMusic account and/or an email to the email address that you have provided to us, and the revised Terms of Use will become effective six (6) weeks after such notification. You will have no obligation to continue using the Platform following any such notification, but if you do not terminate your account as described in the Termination section below during such six (6) week period, your continued use of the Platform after the end of that six (6) week period will constitute your acceptance of the revised Terms of Use.

Description of the Platform

The Platform is a hosting service. Registered users of the Platform may submit, upload and post audio, text, photos, pictures, graphics, comments, and other content, data or information (“Content”), which will be stored by OMGMusic at the direction of such registered users, and may be shared and distributed by such registered users, and other users of the Platform, using the tools and features provided as part of the Platform and accessible via the Website and elsewhere. The Platform also enables registered users to interact with one another and to contribute to discussions, and enables any user of the Website to view, listen to and share Content uploaded and made available by registered users.

We may, from time to time, release new tools and resources on the Website, release new versions of our Apps, or introduce other services and/or features for the Platform. Any new services and features will be subject to these Terms of Use as well as any additional terms of use that we may release for those specific services or features.

Your OMGMusic Account

You are not obliged to register to use the Platform. However, access to the Apps and certain Services is only available to registered users.

When you register to use the Platform, you will provide us with your email address, and will choose a username and password for your account. You must ensure that the email address that you provide is, and remains, valid. Your email address and any other information you chose to provide about yourself will be treated in accordance with our Privacy Policy.

You are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality and security of your username and password, and you will remain responsible for all use of your username and password, and all activity emanating from your account, whether or not such activity was authorized by you.

If your username or password is lost or stolen, or if you believe that your account has been accessed by unauthorized third parties, you are advised to notify OMGMusic in writing, and should change your password at the earliest possible opportunity.

We reserve the right to disallow, cancel, remove or reassign certain usernames and permalinks in appropriate circumstances, as determined by us in our sole discretion, and may, with or without prior notice, suspend or terminate your account if activities occur on that account which, in our sole discretion, would or might constitute a violation of these Terms of Use or our Community Guidelines, or an infringement or violation of the rights of any third party, or of any applicable laws or regulations.

You may terminate your account at any time as described in the Termination section below.
