Welcome to UMuseUs!
These Terms govern your use of UMuseUs and the products, features, apps, services, technologies, and software we offer (the UMuseUs services and products), except where we expressly state that separate terms (and not these) apply.
Our mission at UMuseUs is to provide platforms, venues, and resources that empower Musicians and Music Lovers to Share, Discover, Interact, Create, and more. UMuseUs uses online tools and content to ensure that everyone can engage in a free and open exchange.
We strive to create a safe and productive environment for our users and have included this agreement to explain how we present and maintain that environment. “Users” are defined herein as a person or entity that uses UMuseUs, including but not limited to students, individual artists, music lovers, and organizations. This Terms of Service agreement (the “Terms”) governs our relationship with users of UMuseUs’ services and products, including the website and platform. Your use of the Service constitutes an agreement by you to abide by the terms, notices, and conditions provided for in this agreement.

We reserve the right to change or modify the terms of this agreement at any time in our sole discretion. UMuseUs will post all changes to this page, and users should check this website from time to time for updates. Your continued use of the Service will confirm your acceptance of the revised Terms.

2. Use of Service

By using the Service, you represent that you are either: (1) 18 years of age; or (2) are between 13 years of age and 17 years of age and have received consent from your parent or guardian.

If you become aware that your child, or any child, has provided us with their personal information, please contact the site administrator to have the user account terminated. If we become aware that a child under 13 has provided us with personal information, we will take steps to remove such information and terminate the child’s account.

We may, in our sole discretion, refuse or stop any person or entity from using the Service. We may, without notice and in our sole discretion, terminate your right to use the Service, and block or prevent your future access to and use of the Service.

You may designate a person (called a legacy contact) to manage your account if it is memorialized.

7. Our Content and Copyright Notice

This agreement gives you a limited, nonexclusive, non-sublicensable license to access and use the Service for the limited purposes described in these Terms.

Other than expressly set out in these terms, UMuseUs makes no specific promises about the Service, the specific functions of the Service, or its reliability, availability, or ability to meet your needs. Our products and services are provided “as is,” and we make no guarantees that they always will be safe, secure, or error-free, or that they will function without disruptions, delays, or imperfections.

We cannot predict when issues might arise with our products and services.

12. Indemnification

By agreeing to these Terms, you agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless UMuseUs, its directors, officers, employees, affiliates, and licensors from and against any and all complaints, charges, claims, damages, losses, costs, liabilities, and expenses (including attorneys’ fees) due to, arising out of, or relating in any way to: (1) your use of the Service; (2) your violation of these Terms; or (3) your violation of the rights of another.

13. Entire Agreement

Unless otherwise specified, these Terms constitutes the entire agreement between you and UMuseUs with respect to the Service and supersede all prior or contemporaneous communications and proposals (whether oral, written, or electronic) between you and UMuseUs with respect to the Service.

14. Miscellaneous Terms
These Terms make up the entire agreement between you and UMuseUs regarding your use of our products and services. If you use any of those products and service, supplemental terms will be made available and will become part of our agreement with you. For instance, if you access or use our products and services for commercial or business purposes, such as buying ads, selling products, developing apps, or managing a group or Page for your business, you must agree to our Commercial Terms. If you post or share content containing music, you must comply with our Music Guidelines. To the extent any supplemental terms conflict with these Terms, the supplemental terms shall govern to the extent of the conflict.

This statement does not confer any third-party beneficiary rights.

Any dispute that arises out of these Terms of Service between you and UMuseUs will be governed by these Terms and construed in accordance with the laws of West Virginia. Any lawsuit that is not subject to mandatory arbitration, by you or UMuseUs against the other will occur in state or federal court located within West Virginia
You and UMuseUs agree that any dispute, claim or controversy between you and UMuseUs arising in connection with or relating in any way to these Terms of Service or to your relationship with UMuseUs as a user of the services and products (whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, and whether the claims arise during or after the termination of your use of the products and services) will be determined by mandatory binding individual (not class) arbitration. You and UMuseUs further agree that the arbitrator shall have the exclusive power to rule on his or her own jurisdiction, including any objections with respect to the existence, scope, or validity of the Arbitration Agreement or to the arbitrability of any claim or counterclaim. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. THERE IS NO JUDGE OR JURY IN ARBITRATION AND COURT REVIEW OF AN ARBITRATION AWARD IS LIMITED. There may be more limited discovery than in court. The arbitrator must follow this agreement and can award the same damages and relief as a court (including attorney fees), except that the arbitrator may not award any relief, including declaratory or injunctive relief, benefitting anyone but the parties to the arbitration. This arbitration provision will survive termination of this agreement.
You and UMuseUs agree that nothing in these terms of service will be deemed to waive or limit the rights of either party to bring an individual action in a U.S. small claims court or an action seeking only temporary or preliminary individualized injunctive relief in a court of law, pending a final ruling from the arbitrator. This Arbitration does not prevent either party from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, or local agencies, which can, to the extent the law allows, seek relief against either party on behalf of the other.
Any arbitration between you and UMuseUs will take place under the Consumer Arbitration Agreement Association Rules (“AAA Rules”).
If any provision of these Terms shall be deemed unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these Terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.

Failure to enforce these Terms, or any terms found within, does not constitute a waiver. Any amendment to or waiver of these Terms must be made in writing and signed by us.

All rights and obligations under these Terms are freely assignable by us in connection with a merger, acquisition, or sale of assets, or by operation of law or otherwise. However, you agree not to transfer any of your rights or obligations under these Terms to anyone else without our consent.

We may need to change the username of your account in certain circumstances (for example, if another person, artist, group, or likeness claims the username and it appears unrelated to the name you use in everyday life).

While we appreciate your feedback and other suggestions about our products and services, we may use your feedback and other suggestions without any restriction or obligation to compensate you, and we are under no obligation to keep any information within such feedback or other suggestions confidential.
