Thank you for using Solfeg.io (“Solfeg.io”, “we”, “us”, “our”). These Terms and Conditions (“Terms”) are applicable to websites (such as www.solfeg.io, and web.solfeg.io) and software applications (‘Apps’), all owned and operated by SIA Solfegio and from or in connection with which you are accessing this document. We refer to such websites and apps in this agreement as the “Solfeg.io Service” or “Services”. By using the Services or accessing any content or material that is made available by Solfeg.io or its users through the Services you understand and agree to accept and adhere to the following terms and conditions as stated herein.
Please read the Agreements carefully as they contain important information about Solfeg.io Services provided to you and any fees and charges applicable to the Services. You acknowledge that you have read and understood the Agreements, accept these Agreements, and agree to be bound by them. If you don’t agree with (or cannot comply with) the Agreements, then you may not use the Solfeg.io Services or consume any Resources.
You promise that your registration information, payment details (if you have signed up for a Paid Subscription or Free Trial) and any other information that you submit to us are true, accurate, and complete, and you agree to keep it that way at all times. If you have provided incorrect or inaccurate information, you should return to the log-in screen or correct such information in your account settings.

You acknowledge and agree that it is your responsibility to review the Terms periodically to familiarize yourself with any modifications.

Solfeg.io Service programs
Solfeg.io Services are available for free or as a paid service in accordance with the following and you agree to abide by the terms applicable to the Solfeg.io Service program that you have signed up for:
Solfeg.io provides a platform to learn and teach songs and music classes in lessons. If you have signed up for our free Solfeg.io Service, certain Services or songs are provided to you free-of-charge, for as long as you use the Services for non-commercial purposes, in accordance with the limitations of use set out in these Terms. The Solfeg.io Service that does not require payment is currently referred to as the “Solfeg.io Free”. You may not use Solfeg.io Free for commercial purposes. Hence, if you intend to use Solfeg.io Services in conjunction with or as part of a paid service or product, for the purpose of marketing your own or someone else's products or services or otherwise in conjunction with a commercial event such as a concert, show or broadcasted event, you must enter into a separate agreement with Solfeg.io.
Full Solfeg.io Services and songs require payment before you can access them and certain areas of use are only permitted if you have signed up for Solfeg.io Premium or entered into a separate agreement with Solfeg.io. The Solfeg.io Services that may be accessed subject to payment are currently referred to as “Paid Subscriptions”. If you have signed up for Paid Subscriptions, you may get access to features and songs that are not available through Solfeg.io Free. This does not allow you to use the Services for commercial purposes other than providing educational value to yourself, or your organisations students or teachers.
If you have received a code or other offer provided or sold by or on behalf of Solfeg.io for access to a Paid Subscription (“Code”), separate terms and conditions presented to you along with the Code may also apply to your access to the Services and you agree to comply with any such terms and conditions.
We may, at our own sole discretion, offer trials of Paid Subscriptions for a specified period without payment or at a discounted rate (a “Trial”). We reserve the right to revoke the Trial and put your account on hold in the event that we determine that you are not eligible. For some Trials, we’ll require you to provide your school details to start the Trial.
If you have signed up for Solfeg.io Free or if you cancel your account during the Trial, Solfeg.io will never charge you any fees for your use of the Solfeg.io Service.
Paid Subscriptions can be purchased directly from Solfeg.io through a separate agreement with Solfeg.io.
If you have signed up for a Paid Subscription for a yearly subscription fee, you will be charged for one year's subscription fee in advance upon expiry of any Trial. The Paid Subscription and the payment to Solfeg.io will automatically renew at the end of the yearly subscription period, unless you cancel your Paid Subscription through your settings page before the end of the current yearly subscription period.
If you have signed up for a Paid Subscription which gives you access to the Solfeg.io Service for a specific time period (“Pre-Paid Period”), you will be charged for the Pre-Paid Period in advance upon expiry of any Trial.
If you cancel your Paid Subscription, the cancellation will take effect on the day after the last day of the current subscription period, after which you will be downgraded to Solfeg.io Free. We will not refund any subscription fees already paid to us.
Solfeg.io may change the price for the Paid Subscriptions from time to time, and will communicate any price changes to you in advance and, if applicable, how to accept those changes. Price changes for Paid Subscriptions will take effect at the start of the next subscription period following the date of the price change. As permitted by local law, you accept the new price by continuing to use the Solfeg.io Service after the price change takes effect. If you do not agree with the price changes, you have the right to reject the change by unsubscribing from the Paid Subscription prior to the price change going into effect, in which case you will be downgraded to Solfeg.io Free.

DMCA and User Content reporting
The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA”) provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under US copyright law.

If you believe in good faith that someone has wrongly filed a notice of copyright infringement against you, the DMCA permits you to send to Solfeg.io a counter-notice. Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA. See http://www.copyright.gov/ for details. Notices and counter-notices must be sent in writing to Solfeg.io, Inc., 2093 Philadelphia Pike, Claymont, DE19703, Delaware, US; or by e-mail to info (at) solfeg.io. We suggest that you consult your legal advisor before filing a DMCA notice or counter-notice.
