General terms and conditions
Please read these Terms and Conditions of Use carefully before using the service or site as they contain important information regarding legal rights, remedies and obligations. If you do not agree to all of these Terms and Conditions, do not use the service or site in any manner.
2. Use License
Subscribers (users with a currently active paid membership/subscription) have permission to temporarily access the materials (including all video, audio, written, and electronic content, and intellectual property depicted or presented in any form) on the www.fiddleacademy.com web site for limited personal, non-commercial uses during the duration of their subscription. These include:
- Viewing video and audio of lesson and/or performance materials via the www.fiddleacademy.com website and any third party video or audio services the site employs for this purpose;
- Downloading one copy per subscriber to the site of any sheet music which may accompany any lesson materials for that subscriber’s personal, non-commercial use only.
This is the grant of a license, not a transfer of title. Under this license you may not:
- Use the materials for any commercial purpose, or for any public display or performance (commercial or non-commercial);
- Attempt to download, capture or record any materials (specifically including video or audio of any lesson or performance), other than the sheet music identified above, contained on www.fiddleacademy.com or any third party service used to provide such materials;
- Remove any copyright or other proprietary notations from the materials; or
- Transfer the materials to another person or “mirror” the materials on any other server.
This license shall automatically terminate if you violate any of these restrictions and may be terminated by Firma Mia Marine at any time.
The materials on the www.fiddleacademy.com web site are provided “as is”. Firma Mia Marine makes no warranties, expressed or implied, and hereby disclaims and negates all other warranties, including without limitation, implied warranties or conditions of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, or non-infringement of intellectual property or other violation of rights.
Depending on how you access this website, you may incur data charges from your internet or mobile service provider. Firma Mia Marine is not responsible for any charges you receive due to your use of this website.
In no event shall Firma Mia Marine or its contractors be liable for any damages (including, without limitation, damages for loss of data or profit, or due to business interruption,) arising out of the use or inability to use the materials on www.fiddleacademy.com, even if Firma Mia Marine or an authorized representative has been notified orally or in writing of the possibility of such damage. Our goal is to maintain a stable website so you can learn whenever is most convenient for you. However, occasionally, due to factors beyond our control, website content may occasionally be unavailable for a period, e.g., our website hosting service is undergoing maintenance or your internet service provider is experiencing a service interruption. Because some jurisdictions do not allow limitations on implied warranties, or limitations of liability for consequential or incidental damages, these limitations may not apply to you.
6. Membership Renewal, Term and Fees
This Agreement, including all subsequent revisions, shall remain in full force and effect each and every time you use the website. Either party may terminate this Agreement at any time with or without cause. Site membership is based on a 1 month, 6 month, or one year subscription on an automatically renewing cycle depending on the pricing plan that you choose during sign-up.
Renewing Membership for 1 month subscribers:When you sign up for a www.fiddleacademy.com and choose the 1 month subscription, you authorize us to bill your designated payment method immediately. As a membership approaches the end of its one month, the member/subscriber will be sent a reminder. If authorization for renewal is received, without change to payment information, Firma Mia Marine shall be authorized to bill the previously provided payment method. If renewal is not received, the membership/subscription will be cancelled upon expiration.
Recurring Billing for 6 month or 12 month subscribers: When you sign up for a www.fiddleacademy.com membership and choose the 6 month or 12 month subscription, you authorize us to automatically renew your subscription at the end of the term of the subscription you purchased (and each subsequent term) for the same term length of the subscription you initially purchased. Unless you cancel your membership as described below, at the time of each such renewal you authorize us to charge your designated payment method at the then-current, non-promotional price (unless otherwise stated in the offer you accepted) for the renewal of your subscription.
No Refund. All fees relating to www.fiddleacademy.com membership, including the initial and any subsequent automatic renewal payments, are nonrefundable. You must cancel your www.fiddleacademy.com subscription before it renews at the end of your current billing period in order to avoid the next billing. If you cancel your subscription, the cancellation will be effective at the end of the current billing period. We do not offer prorated refunds or credits for any portion of the subscription fee for a cancelled subscription. All requests for an exception must be submitted in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org. No refunds will be given if the subscriber has filed a dispute or charge-back with their payment provider or there is indication of continued use of the site’s video lessons or other material provided on the site. The amount and form of any credit or refund and the decision to provide them are at Firma Mia Marine’s SOLE AND ABSOLUTE discretion. Discount codes may not be combined.
Membership Cancellation: You may terminate this Agreement at anytime via the website. Or if you prefer, you may email us at email@example.com, and we can cancel your membership for you. If you cancel your subscription, your access to paid, members-only content will expire at the end of your current billing period (you will continue to have access to the www.fiddleacademy.com service through the end of your current billing period).
