Details of the subscription plans are here and on our Site.

We may request a temporary authorisation during any free period from the financial institution issuing your Payment Information in order to confirm its validity and to verify your eligibility to participate in any subscription plan.

12.5 Once you sign up to a subscription plan, that will constitute a contract between you and Tracklib which is governed by these terms.

12.6 Please note carefully that once you have used a Credit (for further details on Credits, see here) to download content and the download of your chosen content has begun, you will lose any right you might have to cancel or change the use of that Credit meaning that you will not be able to change or cancel the track you have downloaded.

12.7 Any free period relates solely to the subscription plan you have chosen.

12.8 By providing your payment details you agree that we may automatically begin charging you for your chosen subscription plan on the first day following the end of any free period on a recurring monthly or annual basis (or such other recurring basis of which we inform you prior to you purchasing your chosen plan).

As an example, if you have paused for 6 weeks, then unpause, you will, at the time of unpausing, need to pay your chosen plan fee and will need to pay the next plan fee in accordance with that plan (for example one month later if you are on a monthly plan).

You may include the Derivative Song in so-called short-form and promotional music videos solely to promote and market the Derivative Song, using either your own original visual material or third-party content that you have permission to use.

You can create remixes or new versions of the Derivative Song (but not the Tracklib Sounds) provided that any new version does not contain any more of the Tracklib Sounds as are in the Derivative Song.

You will not acquire any rights in the Tracklib Sounds, except as specifically stated in this Agreement.

NOTE CAREFULLY THAT IF YOU WISH TO USE ANY PART(S) OF ANY ORIGINAL SONGS IN A DERIVATIVE SONG (WHETHER OR NOT INCLUDING TRACKLIB SOUNDS), YOU MUST FIRST OBTAIN A SAMPLE LICENSE FROM TRACKLIB. SEE PARAGRAPH 25 ABOVE FOR MORE DETAILS.

26.2 You must provide the following to Tracklib via your Your License page in relation to each Derivative Song (and all new versions) as soon as they become available; the title and performer of the Derivative Songs; upload a reference copy of each Derivative Song(s); the ISRC codes; the date on which your Derivative Songs are released and the identity of the distributor of each Derivative Song.

26.3 Restrictions, certain obligations and prohibited uses:

You must fulfil all obligations of this Agreement to maintain your Sounds License. Failure to do so may result in the loss of your rights to use the Tracklib Sounds and the Derivative Song.

The Derivative Song must significantly differ from the Tracklib Sounds. The Derivative Song must predominantly consist of new material created independently. The Derivative Song cannot simply be a reproduction of Tracklib Sounds. Whether you have complied with this is in the sole discretion of the original rights holders, to protect their integrity and rights.

Although you will own the new material created independently in each Derivative Song, and you may register and collect income from the Derivative Song with collective management organisations, you will not acquire any rights in the Tracklib Sounds except as specifically stated in this Agreement.

Prohibited uses:

You cannot use, make, resell, license, or in any way exploit or authorise any use of Tracklib Sounds (i) on a stand alone basis, in isolation, including as incorporated and/or repackaged into sample packs, loops, libraries, music recognition systems or similar (ii) except as incorporated into the Derivative Song and as expressly allowed by this Agreement and/or (iii) in any way that violates or infringes any rights of any third party.

You must give the Derivative Song and any versions a unique name, distinct from the Tracklib Sounds (and/or downloaded Original Songs name).

You cannot credit the original performers using phrases such as “featuring” without Tracklib’s express prior written consent.

The Derivative Song and any versions, including in promotional videos, must not be exploited :

(i) as product, service or other endorsements or tie-ins and/or where the name, likeness or biography of the performers, producers or other contributors to the Original Sounds is used as such an endorsement or tie-in,

(ii) in any context promoting or implying association with alcohol, tobacco, vaping, firearms, pharmaceuticals, pornography, or implying association with religion or politics. Additionally, you cannot use them in a manner deemed offensive, harmful, defamatory, obscene, harassing, illegal, or discriminatory in the discretion of the owners of the Original Recording/Composition

Unless, in either case, as expressly permitted by Tracklib in writing.

**Should you require proof of your license to use Tracklib in your Derivative Song you can request a Sounds License from **support@tracklib.com and this will be provided to you as soon as practicable.

27 Termination

27.1 Breach. If you fail to perform the obligations in this Paragraph 27, for example by acting against its provisions or using Derivative Songs for any of the prohibited uses, this may constitute a breach that can lead to termination of the Songs License. Additionally, if a Derivative Song does not comply with the terms in this Paragraph 23, this could result in copyright infringement, which is potentially a criminal offence. In such cases, you could be liable for contract breach damages and potentially fines for copyright infringement.

27.2 Notice of Breach. If you breach any obligations under this Paragraph 27, Tracklib can issue a written notice of such breach. If you do not remedy such breach within 30 days (the "Cure Period"), or if the breach is not remediable, Tracklib has the right to immediately terminate the Sounds License by providing written notice. Email notification is considered sufficient for this purpose.

27.3 In addition, your Songs License will immediately terminate, and all rights granted to you will cease if any of the following occurs:

(i) You, your authorised distributors, or subcontractors become insolvent, bankrupt, enter administration or receivership, undergo liquidation (unless it's part of a bona fide amalgamation or re-construction where the new entity agrees to assume the obligations under this license), or face a winding-up order that isn't discharged within 90 days; and/or

(ii) Anything similar to the above happens under the law of any jurisdiction pertaining to you, your authorised distributors, or subcontractors

27.4 Effect of Termination. Upon the termination of the Sounds License:

(i) You and your subcontractors must immediately stop using the Derivative Songs; and

(ii) You automatically grant Tracklib the right to issue take-down notices for the Derivative Songs to all digital service providers such as Spotify, Apple Music and YouTube.

However, termination of the Sounds License does not affect any pre-existing rights or claims Tracklib may have against you.

27.5 General

(i) This Sounds license constitutes the full agreement between the parties regarding its subject matter, replacing all prior agreements and discussions.

(ii) A person who is not a party to this Sounds License shall have no right to enforce any term of it.

(iii) (a) if any provision or part-provision of this Sounds License is or becomes invalid, illegal or unenforceable, it shall be deemed deleted, but that shall not affect the validity and enforceability of the rest of this Sounds License and b) if so deleted the Sounds License shall be interpreted, to the greatest extent possible, to achieve the intended commercial result of the original.
