License

Subject to your compliance with these terms, Planet-h.com grants you a limited, personal, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, worldwide and non-exclusive license (hereinafter the “license”) to use our services for your own personal, non-commercial use, under the following conditions:

Except where permitted under applicable law, you do not (and do not allow any third party to) copy, modify, create a derivative work from, reverse engineer, reverse assemble or otherwise attempt to discover any source code, sell, rent, lease, loan, assign, sublicense, grant a security interest in or otherwise transfer any right.

You agree not to access our website, software or mobile applications by any means other than through the interfaces provided by Planet-h.com.

Copyright & Intellectual Property

Copyright © 2011-2018, Planet-H.com. All rights reserved.

Unless explicitly stated otherwise, all content (such as text, audio and video content, graphic assets), graphical design, source code, features and functionalities of our website, software or mobile applications are owned by Planet-h.com or are licensed to us by a third party and are protected by international copyright.

You acknowledge that all content belonging to Planet-h.com can only be used in compliance with the terms of the license provided to you as an end-user.

Contents distributed within our Mobile Apps

Our mobile apps allow you to make use of contents, such as audio samples, demo patterns, presets or drum kits to create your own musical creations, e.g. own loops or complete tracks. A basic set of such contents is provided in form of factory samples or other demo content in our host apps (“G-Stomper Studio”, “G-Stomper Studio DEMO”, “G-Stomper Rhythm”, “G-Stomper VA-Beast”, and “G-Stomper VA-Beast DEMO”). Additional contents are provided (either free or paid) by so called add-on packs (“sample packs”, “preset packs”, “content packs”), published by “Planet-h.com” and “Planet-h.com Samples”.

The sounds (“samples”) included in our host apps as well as the sounds provided by our add-on packs are royalty-free. You can use them in your tracks without any risk of copyright infringement. Selling or distributing these samples separately is not permitted. For instance, you are not allowed to upload a track that plays just one sample after another. But as long as you mix multiple samples, e.g. in a drum loop with kick drum, clap, snare, hi-hat, and more, you become the owner of the track.

IF YOU ARE USING SAMPLES OTHER THAN THE ONES DIRECTLY PROVIDED BY OUR HOST APPS OR BY OUR ADD-ON PACKS, THEN PLANET-H.COM DISCLAIMS ANY RESPONSIBILITY OR LIABILITY IN CASES OF COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT.

Sharing Creations or Recordings made with our Mobile Apps

You can share your creations and/or recorded contents through various platforms, e.g. SoundCloud, YouTube or similar. As an end-user of our mobile apps, you are responsible for the content you share with others.

Planet-h.com disclaims any responsibility or liability for copyright infringements that are caused by or alleged to be caused by or in connection with the use of contents, which are not directly provided by our host apps (“G-Stomper Studio”, “G-Stomper Studio DEMO”, “G-Stomper Rhythm”, “G-Stomper VA-Beast”, and “G-Stomper VA-Beast DEMO”) or by our add-on packs (“sample packs”, “preset packs”, “content packs”).

IF YOU ARE USING CONTENTS THAT ARE NOT DIRECTLY PROVIDED BY OUR HOST APPS OR BY OUR ADD-ON PACKS, IT IS ENTIRELY YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO ENSURE THAT THE USED CONTENTS DO NOT VIOLATE THE RIGHTS OF THIRD PARTIES.

Automatic Copyright Infringement Detection Systems

In some cases, creations that you upload can be flagged for copyright infringement by SoundCloud’s, YouTube’s or other platforms’ copyright infringement detection algorithms. These algorithms evaluate the similarity between two audio files and flag the later added file as a duplicate of the other. IN SUCH CASES, PLANET-H.COM SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, DIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, PUNITIVE, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES RESULTING FROM A CREATION BEING FLAGGED AS COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT.

The sounds (“samples”) included in our host apps as well as the sounds provided by our add-on packs are royalty-free and approved for use. But if another platform user has already uploaded a creation that sounds similar (e.g. if both creations are based on the same samples or demo patterns), a copyright infringement detection algorithm might identify your creation as a duplicate. To avoid this, try to make your creations sound as unique as possible and keep in mind that accidental similarity might result in a copyright infringement notice.
