WARRANT AND AFFIRMATION OF AGE
I warrant, represent and affirm I am at least thirteen (13) years of age.
1. GRANT OF RIGHTS.
The rights granted hereunder shall include the giveaway of permanent digital downloads.
By clicking the "Sign Up" (or similar) button, you ("you") irrevocably grant to Tweet For A Track ("TFAT"), throughout the world and during the Term (as defined below), the sublicensable (so that TFAT is able to use its affiliates and subcontractors such as Internet content delivery networks to provide the Service and Websites and to permit Users to view, hear, read, stream, download and link to your Content) non-exclusive right:
(a) to use, copy, modify, distribute, and otherwise exploit the "Recordings" (defined below) via the TweetForATrack service;
(b) to use the name(s), photographs and likenesses, artwork images, biographical and other information provided by you or the artists whose performances are embodied on the Recordings in connection with the Recordings and TFAT's general business.
The "Recordings" subject to this Agreement are the sound recordings (including song compositions) that you submit to TFAT upon your acceptance of this Agreement as well as any other sound recordings (including song compositions) that you choose to submit thereafter by giving TFAT notice and appropriate copies thereof. TFAT reserves the right to reject any materials that you submit, in its sole discretion. You agree to submit all Recordings at your sole expense, in the format(s) required by TFAT.
3. THIRD PARTY OBLIGATIONS.
You shall be solely responsible for securing and paying for digital phonorecord delivery (DPD), mechanical and any other licenses required from musical composition copyright owners (or their agents) in connection with TFAT's exploitation of rights hereunder, royalties due to artists, producers and other persons who performed in the making of the Recordings and all payments that may be required under collective bargaining agreements. To the extent TFAT is required, or elects (in its sole discretion), to pay any of the foregoing amounts, you shall reimburse TFAT for such payments within thirty (30) days of receipt of an invoice from TFAT. You agree that you will be solely responsible for any of the above referenced third party payment obligations resulting from free deliveries of the Recordings.
4. WARRANTIES; REPRESENTATIONS; INDEMNITIES.
You warrant and represent that you have the right and authority to enter into this agreement and to grant to TFAT all rights specified; all of the Recordings, including any sampled third party material embodied therein, artwork, metadata, videos and any other materials furnished by you to TFAT or relating to the Recordings are owned or controlled by you and shall not infringe on the copyrights or other rights of any person or entity; and that TFAT shall have the right to exploit same in all manner hereunder free from adverse claim and without any obligation to make any payment of any nature to any person or entity. You shall defend and indemnify TFAT and any of its affiliates (including any directors, members, officers, employees and other representatives) against any third party claims or expenses and losses resulting from breach, or a claim which if true would constitute a breach of the foregoing warranties, including reasonable attorneys' fees and litigation expenses. TFAT shall give you prompt notice of any claim and you shall defend TFAT at your expense with counsel approved by TFAT (which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld). Any settlement of any claim shall be subject to TFAT's prior written approval.
The Term of this agreement shall be for a period of twelve (12) months commencing on the date hereof. The Term shall automatically be renewed on a month-to-month basis thereafter. You may cancel this agreement at any time by logging into your TFAT account and following the terminate account procedure.
The parties acknowledge and agree that in the course of negotiating and transacting business under this agreement each party may become aware of certain otherwise confidential information related to the other's business and business practices.
