General Information


 

General Terms and Conditions

By accepting the terms and conditions, the Customer (also referred to as 'Licensee') declares that he or she is fully aware of all terms and conditions and agrees to and accepts them. Under no circumstances is a customer allowed to re-sell the beat in any form. Rights given to customers are not transferable in any case. Even if exclusive rights are sold to a beat, Kwelar will be allowed to use the beat for promotional uses. Therefore all beats sold exclusively will stay on the webpage. However, if exclusive rights are purchased, all licensing options to the beat will be removed and the beat will be marked as “Sold Exclusively”. Customers may not edit/alter the length of the beat. Beats are purchased as “Work Made for Hire” whereby the clearing of any sampled material is the responsibility of the customer. Information about samples can be obtained by contacting Kwelar. After the delivery of the beat, Kwelar will be unbound of any further responsibilities to the customer and legally free of further duties. Abuse or failure to adhere to listed terms and conditions will be punishable by law.

Credit

Credit must always be given to “Kwelar.” By making a purchase of any kind, customer declares that he or she will give credit to the producer in a written form, i.e. CD cover, Youtube, social network pages, etc. Proper credit can be formatted similarly to the following: “Produced by Kwelar,” “Beat by Kwelar,” or “Music produced by Kwelar.”

Payment

Payments are being done through Paypal. All payments must be made and cleared before delivery of product. All payments are non-refundable.

Delivery

Products are e-mailed to customer as a digital download link, within 24 hours upon the clearing of payment. Product files will not be physically mailed to customer via DVD or CD.

Youtube Policy
Non Exclusive beats on our website may be used on YouTube for non-monetized, ad-free videos. YouTube’s ContentIDaudio fingerprinting system may match music in your video to a copyrighted beat from our website and notify you of a* copyright claim*. You can accept this claim and it will not impact on your video or channel, it simply means you will not be able to earn ad revenue. If you would like to monetize your video on YouTube you will require a Sync/Premium (for broadcasting and media use) or Exclusive (for any type of use) license which can be bought from our website. If you own such a license and still have an open copyright claim, please contact us and we will remove it. Note that you do not have the right to submit your own songs to ContentID programs such as TuneCore, Rumblefish or BeatStars without owning the Exclusive license to a beat.

Licensee understands that Kwelar maintains 100% copyright and ownership to the original instrumental composition. Licensee must include on all productions and products the producer’s name.
