Singer Terms and Conditions
For non-exclusive vocals
By uploading vocal recordings and compositions (referred to as “Vocals”) to Voxalized, the artist (referred to as “Artist”) agrees to these Terms and Conditions, effective as of the date of upload.
- Distribution, Exclusivity, and Term. The exclusivity period for digital distribution of the Artist’s vocal commences on the first day of the upcoming month following the effective date and continues for a minimum of 3 months. If the Artist does not request deletion at least seven (7) days before the end of this three-month period, the agreement will automatically extend indefinitely until such time as the Artist requests deletion.
- Copyright Ownership. Company affirms that it possesses all the necessary rights, including sound recording, composition, and synchronization rights, required to offer vocal for sale to our valued customers during the specified availability period. These rights encompass the distribution, reproduction, and public performance rights essential for facilitating the purchase and utilization of the vocal by our customers. We want to reassure our customers that their vocal rights, as delineated in their respective licensing agreements at the time of purchase, remain unaffected even if the vocal is subsequently removed from our platform. Once a customer has acquired the vocal and secured the associated rights, those rights endure, ensuring the ongoing enjoyment of the content as permitted by the terms of their licensing agreement.
- Payment and commission. In accordance with this Agreement, the Company operates a revenue-sharing mechanism whereby the Artist is entitled to commissions of up to 70% based on the revenue generated from the sale and distribution of their vocal recordings through the platform. The commission structure includes the following tiers:
Tier 1: 0 – 100 Sales = 50% Commission
Tier 2: 100 – 200 Sales = 55% Commission
Tier 3: 200 – 300 Sales = 60% Commission
Tier 4: 300 – 400 Sales = 65% Commission
Tier 5: 400+ Sales = 70% Commission
This compensation structure is facilitated through a dynamic commission model designed to provide artists with the opportunity to earn passive income with the aim of establishing long-lasting relationships with the artists. To account for transaction expenses, a 1,50€ transaction fee will be included with each payment. Payments to artists are made on a monthly basis and are conveniently processed through PayPal.
- Discount and pricing. Artists have the autonomy to set their own pricing for non-exclusive vocals offered on Voxalized, reflecting their valuation of their work. It’s important to note, however, that the set price on Voxalized must not exceed the price set on any other platform. Voxalized retains the discretion to apply discounts or promotional offers to these prices, not exceeding 30% off the original artist-set price. These discounts are implemented in good faith to enhance sales and promote the artists’ work, considering various factors such as market conditions and promotional strategies. Voxalized’s decision to apply discounts is aimed at striking a balance between artist autonomy in pricing and effective market positioning of their offerings. Should an artist violate these pricing rules, it may result in all revenue being withheld by Voxalized. These measures are in place to ensure pricing fairness and consistency across platforms.
- Disputes. If any dispute arises during or after the term of this Agreement between Artist and Company parties shall hold negotiations amongst themselves before pursuing litigation.
- Indemnification. Artist will indemnify, protect, defend, and hold Company harmless from and against, any and all loss, cost, damage and expenses arising from, or in any way related to, any third party claims against Artist. Company will indemnify, protect, defend, and hold Artist harmless from and against, any and all loss, cost, damage and expenses arising from, or in any way related to, any third party claims against Company.
- Termination, deletion and notice. Either party may terminate this Agreement for any reason or no reason by providing written notice to the other party at least seven (7) days before the end of the initial three-month period. Upon termination, all rights and licenses granted herein shall cease, except as otherwise provided in this Agreement. In the event that the Artist wishes to have the vocal deleted after the initial three-month period, they may do so by providing written notice to the Company, and the Company shall take the necessary steps to remove the vocal from the platform and other promotional channels.
