3. Our Intellectual Property
myTouchTunes is protected by copyright as a collective work or compilation under the copyright laws of the United States and other countries. Except as otherwise specified in these Terms, all individual articles, content and other elements comprising myTouchTunes are also copyrighted works. All copyright rights in myTouchTunes and these works are owned by TouchTunes or its third-party licensors to the full extent permitted under the United States Copyright Act and all international copyright laws, and are provided for your educational and non-commercial purposes only. You must abide by all additional copyright notices or restrictions contained on myTouchTunes.
You agree to use myTouchTunes only for your own personal and non-commercial use. We do not grant you a license to use myTouchTunes for any other purpose. Except for content you have posted, you may not copy, reproduce, distribute, publish, enter into a database, display, perform, modify, create derivative works, transmit, or in any way exploit any part of myTouchTunes without our express written permission. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, you may not distribute any part of myTouchTunes over any network, including a local area network, nor sell or offer it for sale. To request express written permission to copy, reproduce, distribute, publish, enter into a database, display, perform, modify, create derivative works, transmit, distribute or in any way exploit any part of myTouchTunes, please contact us.
All rights in the product names, company names, trade names, logos, product packaging, and designs of all TouchTunes or third-party products or services, whether or not appearing in large print or with the trademark symbol, belong exclusively to TouchTunes or their respective owners, and are protected from reproduction, imitation, dilution, or confusing or misleading uses under national and international trademark and copyright laws. The use or misuse of these trademarks or any materials, except as permitted herein, is expressly prohibited, and nothing stated or implied on myTouchTunes confers on you any license or right under any patent or trademark of TouchTunes or any third party.
4. User Content and Communications
myTouchTunes contains features that allow users to post their own content and communicate with others. When your account is used to submit, post, or add content to myTouchTunes, or communicate with other users through myTouchTunes (collectively, "User Submissions"), you agree to accept sole responsibility for those User Submissions, including the information, statements, facts, and material contained in any form or medium (e.g., text, audio, video, and photographic) therein.
When you provide any User Submission to us, you grant us, our affiliates, and our partners, a worldwide, irrevocable, royalty-free, nonexclusive, sub-licensable license to use, reproduce, create derivative works of, distribute, publicly perform, publicly display, transfer, transmit, distribute, and publish such User Submission, and subsequent versions thereof. You agree you will not attempt to enforce any so-called "moral rights" in your User Submission against us, our affiliates, and/or our partners. This license will apply to the distribution and the storage of your User Submission in any form, medium, or technology now known or later developed.
myTouchTunes has online, mobile and jukebox platforms that are accessed by a community of users across the country, and we require all users to be good neighbors. By using myTouchTunes, you agree that none of your User Submissions will:
- infringe on the intellectual property, trade secret, privacy, or publicity rights of others;
- contain false statements or misrepresentations that could damage TouchTunes or any third party;
- include obscene, libelous, defamatory, threatening, harassing, abusive, hateful, sexually explicit, sexually oriented, profane, or embarrassing material, as determined by TouchTunes in its sole discretion;
- be illegal or otherwise objectionable to TouchTunes; or
- include commercial advertisements or solicitations
Because myTouchTunes is a public service and myTouchTunes jukeboxes are located in public places, we can't guarantee that any User Submissions, even those that you don't intentionally publish, will remain confidential. Likewise, because the transmission of information over wireless and wired networks is not inherently secure, we can’t guarantee that information (including personal information and private communications) stored locally on your mobile device or transmitted to our servers will remain confidential.
Some myTouchTunes users may be minors between the ages of 13 and 17. To help ensure their safety, adult users agree not to attempt to contact or identify minors through the use of the myTouchTunes service. You also agree not to attempt to override or circumvent any technology we use to prevent some users from communicating with others.
Although you are solely responsible for the content you provide, we reserve the right to monitor User Submissions. If we become aware of User Submissions that violate these Terms of Service or that we believe to be otherwise objectionable, we may reject or delete them, or take other action, without notice to you and in our sole discretion.
If you notice that any other user's submissions appear to violate these Terms of Service, or if any other user ever makes you feel harassed or unsafe, please contact us.
You understand and agree that User Submissions are neither owned by nor provided by TouchTunes, and that TouchTunes is in no way responsible for such User Submissions or any related conduct or practices.
5. Notice of Copyright Infringement
If you believe in good faith that your copyrighted work has been reproduced on or linked from our site without authorization in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, please provide our designated copyright agent with the following information:
- identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed;
- identification of the allegedly infringing material on the Service that is requested to be removed;
- your name, address and daytime telephone number, and an e-mail address if available, so that we may contact you if necessary;
- a statement that you have a good-faith belief that the use of the copyrighted work is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law;
- a statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the signatory is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive copyright right that is allegedly infringed; and
- an electronic or physical signature of the copyright owner or someone authorized on the owner's behalf to assert infringement of copyright and to submit the statement.
Our copyright agent for notice of claims of infringement on myTouchTunes is:
Attention: General Counsel
TouchTunes Music Corporation
850 Third Avenue
New York, NY 10022
This contact information is only for suspected copyright infringement. Contact information for other matters is provided elsewhere on this site.
We will remove any content that infringes upon the copyright of any person under the laws of the United States upon receipt of such a statement (or any statement in conformance with 17 U.S.C. § 512(c)(3)), and will terminate the Service privileges of those who repeatedly infringe on the copyright of others. United States law imposes substantial penalties for falsely submitting a notice of copyright infringement.
6. Pay Services
Some myTouchTunes services may be available only upon payment of a fee. For example, we may allow you to request play of a song at a particular jukebox after you pay a specified fee. We may also make it possible for you to pay us for "credits" that you can collect in your account and that you can later use to request songs.
Although we will try to honor requests for songs or other services that you make through myTouchTunes, our ability to provide these services may be affected by a number of factors, including the inherent unreliability of the Internet. We therefore cannot be responsible if a song that you have requested does not play.
Also, we may allow you to store purchased credits in your TouchTunes account (the "Account Credits"). If you apply stored Account Credits to a particular TouchTunes jukebox, you should know that they will be treated similarly to cash or credit payments made directly to that machine. Specifically, like in-person payments made at a particular jukebox, if you apply your Account Credits to purchase credits for a jukebox (a "Jukebox Credit") but do not use those Jukebox Credits to request song plays, the Jukebox Credits will expire after a specified period of time. If your Jukebox Credits expire, they will not be reapplied to your Account Credits. In addition, Accounts Credits and Jukebox Credits may expire after a specified period of time. We will describe any expiration date that applies to Account Credits or Jukebox credits on the Service.
You should be aware that we do not offer refunds for pay services under any circumstances, including if a song that you requested fails to play or if credits that you transfer to a jukebox are lost or expire.
If we offer services that allow you to communicate via wireless networks, we want you to be aware that, in addition to any fees that we charge, your wireless service provider may charge fees for text messages or data transmission. Please consult your wireless carrier for information about any text messaging and data fees that it charges.
We also may make it possible for you to pay for services for which a fee is assessed by requesting that payment be processed by your wireless provider or by another payment intermediary. In such cases, we will let you know before you incur any charges how we will process your payment. By accepting services after we inform you of these arrangements, you agree to allow your wireless provider or our payment intermediary to process the charge and to bill you for the payment or deduct the payment from your prepaid balance.
You are not authorized to access any services for which a fee is charged except if you have paid the appropriate fee, have received access credentials from us, and are using the access credentials that we have provided to you. You may not provide anyone else with assistance in accessing Pay Services on an unauthorized basis, including by sharing your access credentials or providing Materials that you obtained through Pay Services to third parties.
myTouchTunes may, as a convenience to users, provide links to third-party content and other web sites, through links made available by TouchTunes, our users, or third parties. We do not sponsor, endorse, or accept any responsibility for such material. TouchTunes is not responsible for the content or privacy practices of any linked sites.
8. Limitation of Liability
You understand that myTouchTunes is an entertainment service, and you agree that we will not be responsible for any damages that you claim result, directly or indirectly, from use of myTouchTunes, for any reason, including costs incurred while using myTouchTunes, delays in ordering music, the inaccessibility or technical failure of myTouchTunes, or the costs associated with any claims you bring or try to bring against us.
IN NO EVENT WILL TOUCHTUNES OR ITS AFFILIATES, OR ANY PARTY INVOLVED IN CREATING, PRODUCING, OR DELIVERING MYTOUCHTUNES BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF YOUR ACCESS, USE, MISUSE, OR INABILITY TO USE MYTOUCHTUNES OR ANY LINKED SITES, OR IN CONNECTION WITH ANY FAILURE OF PERFORMANCE, ERROR, OMISSION, INTERRUPTION, DEFECT, DELAY IN OPERATION OR TRANSMISSION, COMPUTER VIRUS, LINE OR SYSTEM FAILURE, OR INCOMPATIBILITY BETWEEN ANY ELEMENT OF MYTOUCHTUNES AND YOUR HARDWARE DEVICE(S). IN THE EVENT THAT YOU HAVE A DISPUTE WITH ANOTHER USER RELATED TO, ARISING FROM, OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH USE OF MYTOUCHTUNES, YOU RELEASE TOUCHTUNES FROM ANY CLAIMS, DEMANDS, AND DAMAGES OF EVERY KIND AND NATURE ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH SUCH A DISPUTE.
These limitations apply whether the alleged liability is based on contract, tort, negligence, strict liability, or any other basis, even if we have been advised of the possibility of such damage. Because some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, our liability in such jurisdictions shall be limited to the extent permitted by law.
YOU AGREE TO INDEMNIFY TOUCHTUNES AND OUR OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, OWNERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, INFORMATION PROVIDERS, AFFILIATES, PARTNERS, AND LICENSORS (THE "TOUCHTUNES PARTIES") AGAINST, AND HOLD THE TOUCHTUNES PARTIES HARMLESS FROM LIABILITY, LOSSES, COSTS, AND EXPENSES (INCLUDING ATTORNEY'S FEES) INCURRED AS A RESULT OF YOUR USE OF MYTOUCHTUNES OR CLAIMS MADE IN CONNECTION WITH SUCH USE.

This agreement may be terminated by TouchTunes for any reason at any time. Sections 3, 4, and 6 through 18 of this agreement shall survive such termination.
12. Governing Law / Entire Agreement
You agree that any dispute between you and TouchTunes will be governed by the law of the State of New York, without giving effect to any principles of conflicts of law, as if entered into by residents of New York and fully performed therein, and that any legal action brought by one party against the other will be brought in the courts of the City of New York, New York.
