You may NOT use free download versions for public performances!

 


GENERAL TERMS & CONDITIONS

By making a payment the customer declares that he is fully aware of the terms & conditions & accepts & agrees to them. All terms & conditions are listed on the webpage www.djakia.com. In case of a change in any of the listed points or should one point become invalid, all other points stay unaffected & are still valid. For this written agreement & the general legal relationship, Law is applicable. Purchases within the European Union include taxes of 22%, listed separately on the invoice. All purchases from countries which are not a member of the European Union do not include any taxes & are tax-free. If a track contains sampled material, the sample-clearing of itself needs to be done by the customer(s), not by DJ AKiA. The licensee understands that they are responsible for clearing all samples that they choose to use & that the licensor cannot & will not be held liable for the misuse of any sampled material that the licensee uses in conjunction with the original instrumental composition that is being licensed in this agreement. The licensee understands & accepts that they are only paying for the production work of the producer. The licensor does not claim to have any rights on any sampled material. Under no circumstance is a customer allowed to re-sell the unmodified track in any form. Rights that are given to a customer are not transferable. No matter if exclusive rights are sold to a track, DJ AKiA will always be allowed to use that track for own promotional uses. Therefore, all tracks sold exclusively stay on the webpage. Download & license options to that track will be removed & the track will be marked as ‘sold’. Customers may edit/alter the length of a track as they see fit if they own a license to the track & do not change the sound-structure of the track itself. No changes to a track are allowed, except length changes. Therefore, it is also not allowed to use any parts, melodies, instruments, sounds, drum arrangements, etc. of the original instrumental composition for other compositions. After the delivery of the track, DJ AKiA will be unbound of any further responsibilities to the customer & legally freed of any further duties. Any Track by DJ AKiA may NOT be uploaded on any website without our permission. DJ AKiA is not responsible for other sites claiming to sell our products. Please respect the terms listed here as they will be enforced (legally) if necessary to recoup any lost revenue caused by them being dismissed or ignored. Some terms may be negotiable so don’t hesitate to contact us first if interested.
