Genesis Entertainment may, from time to time, modify this Agreement and will post a copy of the amended Agreement on its website. If you do not agree to the amended Agreement, your only remedy is to stop using the Website and/or Service or, if applicable, cancel your Genesis Entertainment membership ("Membership").

By your continued use of the Website and/or Service, you hereby agree to all of the terms and conditions contained within the Agreement effective at that time. Therefore, you should regularly check this webpage for any updates and/or changes.

2. The Service. The Service allows you to listen to previews of sound recordings online ("Preview Titles") and obtain downloads of these and other sound recordings ("Download Titles"). The Website, Service and Download Titles are made available to you only for your own personal, non-commercial use. Many of the songs available through the Service are performed by their original artists. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you understand and agree that most of the available songs are performed by other musicians in the style of the original artists.

To use the Service, you must first register for Membership and supply certain registration data that may include , but is not limited to, username, password, telephone number, e-mail address, mailing address and, if needed, credit card information for billing purposes ("Registration Data"). You agree to provide accurate Registration Data and to update your Registration Data as necessary to maintain it in an up to date and accurate fashion. Upon registration, you will receive your Membership account.

Your Membership is non-transferable. Access to, and use of, the Service is through a combination of both user name and password ("Login"). You must keep your Login strictly confidential. For security reasons, Genesis Entertainment will not release passwords for any reason, other than to the applicable members themselves, except as may be specifically required by law or court order. You agree that you will not authorize and/or permit others to use your Membership. Genesis Entertainment shall not be responsible for any unauthorized use of your Membership. Furthermore, unauthorized access to the Website and/or Service is a breach of this Agreement, violation of applicable law and subject to your obligations of indemnification as set forth in Section 11, herein below.

3. License Grant. As a visitor to the Website and/or member of the Service, you are granted a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable license to access and use the Website (and its associated content) and/or Service in accordance with this Agreement. Genesis Entertainment may terminate this license at any time for any reason, whatsoever. You may use the Website and/or Service on your computer for your own personal, non-commercial use. No part of the Website and/or Service may be reproduced in any form or incorporated into any information retrieval system, electronic or mechanical. You may not use, copy, emulate, clone, rent, lease, sell, modify, decompile, disassemble, reverse engineer or transfer the Website and/or Service, Website content or any portion thereof. Genesis Entertainment reserves any rights not explicitly granted in this Agreement. You may not use any device, software or routine to interfere or attempt to interfere with the proper working of the Website and/or Service. You may not take any action that imposes an unreasonable or disproportionately large load on the Genesis Entertainment infrastructure. As a Website visitor, your limited license is provided solely for access to the Website in order to obtain information about Genesis Entertainment and to apply for Membership. Website visitors are not authorized to access any Download Titles, content and/or data available to those individuals with Memberships.

Genesis Entertainment members may access Preview Titles and purchase Download Titles. Preview Titles and Download Titles are owned by Genesis Entertainment and/or its licensors, as applicable, and are protected by applicable intellectual property laws. You agree that the intellectual property right holders that license their musical content to Genesis Entertainment for access through the Service are intended third-party beneficiaries under this Agreement, and thereby possess the right to enforce the provisions of this Agreement that directly affect their intellectual property. You understand that your use of Download Titles is subject to this limited license, as set forth herein. You may not permit any Download Titles, used or obtained by you, to be reproduced, modified, displayed, performed, transferred, distributed or otherwise used by any third party, whatsoever. You agree to advise Genesis Entertainment promptly of any such unauthorized use(s).

A Preview Title is a short segment of a Download Title or, in some cases an entire Download Title available at a lower bit rate that you can access and play directly, without an associated download, while logged onto the Service. You may listen to a Preview Title at no cost. Moreover, you may access as many Preview Titles as you like. However, you may not attempt, or assist a third party's attempt, to copy and/or download Preview Titles.

A Purchased Download Title is a Download Title that you may: (1) download and save to your personal computer's hard drive for play back at any time; (2) burn to a recordable CD-ROM; and/or (3) transfer to a compatible portable electronic audio device. If you have Purchased Download Titles, it is your responsibility not to lose or damage them. Genesis Entertainment shall have no liability to you in the event of any such loss.

You may burn each Purchased Download Title to a recordable CD-ROM up to an aggregate of five (5) times, individually, or as part of a Compilation (for example, you may burn a Purchased Download Title as part of a Compilation 2 times and individually 3 times, for a total aggregate amount of 5 times). A Compilation is a specific collection of Purchased Download Titles that are arranged together in a particular order. Once you have burned a Purchased Download Title to a recordable CD-ROM, you agree not to copy or transfer the song from that recordable CD-ROM to any other computer system, media and/or device.

You may transfer a Purchased Download Title an unlimited number of times to compatible portable electronic audio devices that are compatible with Purchased Download Titles. Once you have transferred a Purchased Download Title to a compatible electronic audio device, you agree not to copy, distribute and/or transfer it from such device to any other computer system, media and/or device. The burning or transfer capabilities provided for herein shall not operate to waive or limit any rights of the respective copyright holders, without limitation.

Download Titles consist of copyrighted and/or other proprietary subject matter and this Agreement, and all other applicable laws, rules and regulations, govern your use of these Download Titles.

All rights not expressly granted to you in this Agreement are reserved by Genesis Entertainment and/or its licensors.

Genesis Entertainment may, at any time, lose its licensing rights to make certain Preview Titles and/or Download Titles available on the Service. In that event, you will no longer be able to obtain these Preview Titles and/or Download Titles from the Service.

The posting of Preview Titles, Download Titles, information and/or material at the Website and/or Service by Genesis Entertainment does not constitute a waiver of any right in such Preview Titles, Download Titles, information and/or materials.

5. Promotions, Billing and Fulfillment. Each Download Title may have an associated "suggested download price" (the "Download Price"). However, Genesis Entertainment reserves the right to offer promotions in connection with the Service. Some examples of promotions are, without limitation, instant credits for select members, volume discounts for multiple Download Title purchases and/or Download Titles available for a limited time at no cost. Genesis Entertainment will supply complete terms, conditions and restrictions associated with any such promotion at the time that such promotion is available. However, you are free to purchase Download Titles at the Download Price at any time.

You agree to pay for all Download Titles that you purchase through the Service. All charges will be billed to the credit card that you supplied as a part of your Registration Data, or to any other valid credit card that you may so designate from time to time. Genesis Entertainment may, in its discretion, post charges to your credit card individually, or may choose to aggregate your charges associated with your other Purchased Download Titles. You are responsible for keeping your Membership secure and confidential and you will be responsible for any charges that are incurred by any person through your Membership. If any of your billing information changes, you must update that information in the "Membership" section of the Website.

All Download Prices available through the Service are subject to change by Genesis Entertainment at any time, in its sole discretion. The Download Price indicated at the time of purchase shall apply for the specific Download Title. Download Prices quoted are generally inclusive of any applicable taxes, including sales and/or use taxes.
