As used herein, the term "Epitonic" refers to a wholly owned subsidiary of Epitonic Inc., an Illinois corporation, the owner and operator of the Epitonic Web site; the term "you" or "your" refers to any individual, representing themselves or, if applicable, acting as legal representative for a group, business entity, or corporation.
CAREFULLY READ THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS. BY AVAILING YOURSELF OF THE WEB SITE OR RELATED SERVICES, YOU ARE CONSENTING TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS AS SUCH TERMS MAY BE MODIFIED FROM TIME TO TIME AS DESCRIBED BELOW.
Use of Materials on Web site:
The information, artwork, text, video, audio, pictures, software and all other intellectual property (collectively, "Materials") contained on the Web site are protected by copyright and international laws. You may only access and use the Materials for personal or educational purposes or as expressly provided for in applicable Epitonic program terms and conditions. You may not otherwise reproduce, distribute, publicly perform, publicly display, modify or create derivative works of the Materials, unless authorized by the appropriate copyright owner(s). In the event that you print Materials found on the Web site, you must include any copyright notice originally included with the Materials on all copies. You may not link directly to any media file located on an Epitonic server, and you should not attempt to claim any Materials as your own work. Any computer software downloadable or otherwise available on the Web site is provided subject to the terms of the applicable license agreement.
Sites Linked From the Web site:
Links to third-party Web sites from the Epitonic Web site are not necessarily under Epitonic’s control, and Epitonic does not assume any responsibility or liability for any content, opinions or materials available at such third-party Web sites. Epitonic does not investigate, monitor or check for accuracy such third-party Web sites and Epitonic does not intend any such links to third-party Web sites to imply Epitonic's sponsorship or endorsement thereof. Your use of such Web sites is at your own risk.
"Framing" the Web site:
Framing of the Web site is permitted only by express agreement with Epitonic, and Epitonic may require if specific measures are to be taken to avoid user or consumer confusion. Such measures may include, but are not limited to: clearly attributing the displayed Material to the Epitonic Web site or providing each user or consumer with the opportunity to visit the Epitonic Web site directly by, for example, including a tab labeled "Remove Frames." Epitonic reserves the right to withhold consent for any reason and any failure to monitor or control each instance of the framing of the Web site shall not be considered a waiver of any of Epitonic's rights. Any framing of the Web site shall not imply the endorsement or sponsorship of Epitonic, or Epitonic Affiliates, as hereafter defined.
Copyright and Trademark Infringement Policy and Notification Procedure:
Epitonic typically does not own the musical compositions, sound recordings, art or other written copy or visual images (collectively, the "Content") of third parties that are available through the Web site. Most of the Content is made available through an individual, group or company (collectively, the "Content Providers") who has represented and warranted to Epitonic that, among other things, they have the rights, licenses, clearances and/or permissions necessary to make the Content available to Epitonic for use on the Web site and that the names, trademarks and service marks under which the Content is presented or promoted (collectively, the "Name") do not infringe any third party's copyright, patent, trademark, trade secret or other proprietary rights, rights of publicity or privacy, or moral rights.
Since Epitonic is not in a position to determine who has the prevailing claim to use any particular Content or Name posted to the Web site, Epitonic's policy on such matters is that they be resolved directly by the parties alleging misuse of their Content and/or Name (the "Complainants") and the Content Providers. We recommend that Complainants immediately notify Content Providers about allegations of infringement by contacting them directly. If you are a Content Provider and wish to remove or change content on Epitonic, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the details of the request and the content will be removed within three business days.
