Welcome to Aroundsound. We want you to know and understand your rights and our rights relating to the provision of our sound recording and collection platform (the “Services”).
Please read them carefully. By accessing or using the Aroundsound application you agree to be bound by these Terms of Service. If you do not agree to be bound by all of these Terms of Service, please do not access or use the Service.

Basic terms

  1. You must be at least 13 years old to use the Service

  2. You own any Audio Data and associated data (collectively “Content”) created using the Service. We will not publish your Audio Data without your explicit permission. We may use your Audio Data anonymously (meaning not tied to any User Authentication Data, such as email address or name) and privately (meaning not published publicly) to improve the service, for example to train algorithms to categorise sounds. We will do this only to improve the Service. We will always treat your Audio Data respectfully and as per our Privacy Policy.

  3. You will notify and obtain permission from any persons recorded that they are being recorded using the Service and or accept responsibility for the act of recording and sharing recordings. We accept no responsibility for disputes whereby persons or situations are recorded without permission.

  4. We expect you to act with integrity. Specifically, you may not use the Service to record or share violent, discriminatory, unlawful, infringing, hateful, sexual or sexually suggestive material. Additionally, you must not use the Service to defame, stalk, bully, abuse, harass, threaten, impersonate or intimidate people or entities.

  12. The Service is under rapid development and may be disrupted or may change without prior notice. We will try our best to ensure this does not affect your Content but we cannot guarantee it. We will not be liable for damages or losses arising from your use or inability to use the service or otherwise arising under this agreement.

General Terms

  1. We reserve the right to modify or terminate the Service or your access to the Service for any reason, without notice, at any time, without liability to you. If we terminate your access to the Service then your Audio Data will no longer be accessible to you, but Audio Data created by you using the Service may persist and appear elsewhere (e.g. if your Content has been re-shared by others and you have not deleted it)

  2. We provide the Service “as is” and “as available,” without warranty of any kind. We do not warrant that the Service will meet your requirements; that the Service will be uninterrupted, timely, secure, or error-free; that the information provided through the Service is accurate, reliable or correct; that any defects or errors will be corrected; that the Service will be available at any particular time or location; or that the Service is free of viruses or other harmful components. You assume full responsibility and risk of loss resulting from your downloading and/or use of content or other material obtained from the Service.

  3. We may remove, edit, block and / or monitor Content that we determine in our sole discretion violates these Terms of Service. Where we are notified of Content that potentially violates these Terms of Service, we will endeavour to review such Content quickly and act appropriately by for example removing the Content in question.

  4. You are solely responsible for your interaction with other users of the Service or any other persons with which you share Content created using the Service.

  4. Although we strive to make the Service available as much as possible, there will be times when the Service may be interrupted and this will happen without notification.
