Compositions and recordings (“vocal tracks” or "vocals") are made available by third parties (“vocalists”) through the Site. HiVocals requires all vocalists to confirm that their recordings and offerings do not infringe any third-party rights and that they have the necessary permissions to make the vocal tracks available and grant ongoing rights to purchasers. Vocalists agree that they own 100% of the vocal tracks they offer for sale or for lease and or have the appropriate licenses, copyrights, mechanical licenses, and all other permissions required to offer vocal tracks to others.
By uploading and selling vocal tracks and any associated artwork or other content, including your name, description, and photograph (together “vocal track content”) on the site, vocalists warrant and represent that:• you have the authority and permission to make the vocal track content available in the manner offered by you• the vocal track content does not infringe the rights of any third party, including any sample owners, writers, artists or musicians• the vocal track content shall not contain or transmit any virus or other harmful matter• all files you advertise as being included with purchase are uploaded while Hivocals provides a platform for you as a Seller to sell and grant licenses to vocals, all sales and licenses of vocals are between the seller and buyer. You agree that any claims you have arising from a sale, license, or purchase of a vocal will be brought solely against the buyer, and in no instance, against Hivocals. HiVocals reserves the right to remove any of Your Content from the Website if such content: (i)is patently offensive, pornographic, or defamatory; (ii)is the subject of a dispute between you or us and a third party; (iii)is content to which you cannot document your rights therein upon Hivocal’s ‘request; (iv)violates the intellectual property rights or other protected interests of a third party; (v)is the subject of a takedown notice by a party claiming to own the rights therein, or (vi)is the subject of any fraudulent activity, or for any other reason in Hivocal’s sole and absolute judgment is necessary to protect the business interests of Hivocals or Licensees.

As such, we reserve the right to remove content that we deem as substantially poor quality. We reserve the right to terminate, suspend or remove any account or content which we believe breaches our terms and conditions, without liability to you. You shall indemnify us against any and all direct and indirect claims, losses, damages, costs, and liabilities arising out of any breach by you of these terms.
As a purchaser of vocal tracks, your contractual relationship relating to the vocal tracks is with the licensor or seller of vocal tracks and not with Hivocals. When you purchase vocal tracks, it will be under the conditions and limitations of the license terms stipulated by the relevant vocalist. These terms will be presented prior to completing the purchase of a vocal track. If you do not agree to those license terms, you must not purchase that vocal track. Any exploitation by a purchaser which is outside of the vocalist’s license terms will be a potential breach of contract and a potential breach of intellectual property rights, for which you will be liable. While Hivocals provides a platform for you as a buyer to purchase or obtain licenses to vocals, all sales and licenses of vocals are between the seller and buyer. You agree that any claims you have arising from a sale, license, or purchase of a vocal will be brought solely against the seller, and in no instance, against Hivocals.
HiVocals will not be responsible for any refunds for any licensing or sales purchases. Vocalists use Hivocals to sell their vocals. However, we are not the sellers or the owners of the vocals on our platform. Therefore if you require a refund, please contact the vocalist, as money is paid directly to them, and only they can refund this. HiVocals does not guarantee satisfaction with any vocal tracks offered by vocalists and refunds are at the sole discretion of the seller. In cases in which a seller has breached their "Seller Obligations" (seen above), relating specifically to the vocal purchased, Hivocals will take steps to refund a payment to you as a purchaser. However, we cannot guarantee a refund, as ultimately the files and payments are with the seller.
