USE OF SERVICE

 

Service . You may use the Service only in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement and any amendments as well as any additional terms that may be presented in connection with any particular feature or function of the Service from time to time.
The Service is for your personal use. You understand and agree that you may not transmit or re-transmit, broadcast or re-broadcast or make any commercial use of the Service, including the Downloads. For example, you may not copy or distribute the Service or the Downloads in any manner not expressly authorized by the Service.

You may not attempt (or authorize, encourage or support others' attempts) to circumvent, reverse engineer, decrypt, break or otherwise alter or interfere with the Service, including the Downloads. You agree to advise WPI promptly of any such unauthorized use(s) or attempt(s).

 

Downloads . You understand and acknowledge that the Downloads made available as part of the Service are owned by WPI, its business partners, affiliates, licensees and/or licensors, as applicable, and are protected by intellectual property laws. WPI grants you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, revocable right to download the Downloads to your compatible device solely for your own non-commercial use.

Loss of Rights by WPI. WPI's rights to make certain Downloads available to you may expire. In such event, WPI will not deliver to you the license necessary to play back any such Downloads after the end of the period in which such rights expire. If WPI ceases making any such rights available, WPI will not refund any portion of your fees, but you may contact customer support to receive appropriate replacement rights.

 

Customer Support. Please direct any questions concerning the Service or any other WPI, Birdtones, or Wildtones-related issue, to a Birdtones/Wildtones customer service representative by e-mail at: support@wildtones.com.

 

CHARGES / BILLING

 

Agreement to Pay. By completing the registration process, you authorize WPI to charge the appropriate fees to your designated credit card or directly to your mobile telephone invoice, as selected by you, and if you select a monthly fee subscription plan, you authorize the continued billing each month until you cancel such subscription. If any of your billing information changes (e.g., new credit card number, new address or email address, new Phone Number or service, etc.), you must update that information in the "My Account" area of the Birdtones or Wildtones Website, as applicable. If you cancel your account or subscription for any reason, WPI will not refund any of your fees paid to date. Monthly subscribers are billed on a 30-day cycle, which begins on the first day you sign up for the subscription and ends 30 days thereafter (each, a "Subscription Month"). Your credit card or telephone bill will be charged on the first day of each Subscription Month.

 

Refunds and Exchanges. All Items for sale are available on the website where you can listen to the sounds and preview the images before purchasing. Please select carefully as no refunds or exchanges are given.

 

Right to Change Fees. All fees are subject to change upon notice from WPI. WPI will provide you with reasonable notice of such change. If you do not accept the new fees (which will be applicable on a prospective basis only), you will have 10 days from such notice to cancel your subscription and/or your account.

 

Taxes. WPI reserves its right to collect applicable taxes and impose premium surcharges for certain features of the Service.
